A new version of Firefox was installed yesterday and now my Adblocker Ultimate is blocking content on some sites. For example, I can no longer see my local digital newspaper and photos on the Eddie Bauer website no longer load. If I turn adblocker off, the website loads correctly. These sites, and others, have worked fine for years. How can I fix this without turning adblocker off?

So, today i installed the latest update to firefox (at least that's when i was notified). I installed it. Then for some reason i got notified it's not the latest version and installed another through about -> help. I usually keep it up to date so not sure why 2 installs in same day. In any case, i am now on 116.0.1 64 bit. And that completely broke my browsing and firefox.

Some of the issues im experiencing. 1. Google search is not "working". I type something into the search bar, and when i press "enter" on the keyboard, it just moves to next line and i can type again. This however was not happening before. It works normally on chrome/edge and only started happening on this release. 2. Almost anything "interactive" is broken, or not functioning. For example, my chess.com settings cant be loaded no more. Loads it fine in other browsers. 3. Youtube is not functioning properly. Sometimes it loads, sometime it doesn't 4. Some pages aren't rendering properly.

It's as if javascript or some other thing is not loading anymore. I tried moving back to older versions, however, that did not fix anything. Everything was fine untill i upgraded today.

On Thursday the pages I have used every day for years worked fine. Today pages like Ancestry.com, familysearch.org, facebook, twitter. None are loading. Was there an update that happened since Thursday? How can I go back to the previous version that worked perfectly? I did check and my system says I'm using the most current version Win10 computer (2 years old if it matters).

After the newest update Firefox fails to upload some pages. I reset the internet and wifi but that didn't fix the problem so I try Edge and it worked fine....

For example Facebook load fine but if I try changing the cover photo the menus (pull down panel) never appears. Earthlink home page never uploads. etc.

While I switched to MS Edge all the pages mentioned above worked fine.... so it is not the Wifi or the internet connection

Basically when watching a stream on Twitch.tv that is being broadcasted in fps above 60, meaning that the encoder uses 120 fps there are tons of skipped frames. It basically never stops skipping the frames. Even after reaching ridiculous numbers like 10000 skipped frames it just never stops. After enabling the following use flags "layers.d3d11.force-warp: true" and "gfx.swap-interval.egl: true" the problem subsides, skipped almost completly disappear. I think if I turn off hardware acceleration it prevents the frames from skipping too.

By the way I will attach my hardware info down below: OS: Windows 11 22H2 CPU: 13900k GPU: 3060 TI

I'm not sure if this behaviour is expected or normal but it's kind of weird. Maybe it's a problem with my hardware and not a software problem. I'm hoping it's not a faulty gpu or something. Would be nice if somebody could reassure if this is a problem with my gpu or not.

Flags tested: "gfx.swap-interval.egl" "layersd3d11.force-warp" and turning hardware accel on / off "layers.acceleration.force-enabled" also "layers.prefer-opengl".

Any testers apperciated! Best regards, Syntractrix.

This is a many years old account/install with Netscape/Firefox, now 116.0.1, 64-bit Windows.

When offered a box for email step 1 login -- this site, for example -- FF auto fill offers my correct address first, but then there are two offered below that in the auto fill offers that are not mine.

How can I access where those are stored and remove those erroneous or mal email addresses?

Searching here infers the Profile; yes, my first guess, but my Profile is 725 MB ... so any hints available?

outlook.com, Facebook, and Starfleet Commander are not loading properly. It started with Starfleet Commander, and a clearing of cache and cookies routinely would temporarily clear it up. Now, I am having problems with both outlook.com and Facebook as well, and since the most recent Firefox update. outlook.com is opening but I cannot access the emails in my inbox and Facebook is unable to share posts. Also, in outlook.com, https links in emails from trusted senders are somehow being converted to http and then Firefox of course warns me not to go there. Of note, I downloaded Chrome temporarily for a backup and am not having these problems with Chrome, but of course, Google Chrome is nosy and ad-laden.

I've notice since last night that in certain instances left clicking on something results in no response. There are a couple of cases where this is happening. In Google image results if I click on an image, that image should open up in a popup in the upper right corner. However, now when I click on the image, nothing happens. The other instance is when I do a Google search on a certain subject, at the top of the results is "people also ask." Next to the results in a drop down arrow to expand the results. However, clicking on the arrow also results in no response. I am having no problems at all using Microsoft Edge. I did restart FF in troubleshoot mode and the issues went away. So, apparently there is something wrong with FF in normal mode. Using FF version 11.6.01 64-bit with Window 10. Also, I have not installed any add-ons in a long time. On other thing. It seems some pages are not rendering properly. For example I tried using DuckDuckgo to see if the above problem was specific to Google search. However, when I typed the DDG address into the address bar, the page comes up blank. Thanks in advance for any help.
