Since January 14 2022, my Firefox (and other browsers like Safari & Chrome) can't load certain websites, notably meetup.com and guardian.co.uk.

I've checked with both ISP and Apple support (Macbook Air M1 2020 on Mac OS 12.1). After running tests, both maintain there are no issues with internet connectivity.

I'm aware that Mozilla (as far as Firefox goes) is working on a solution and has offered a workaround. I have tried it and it doesn't work.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Apparently Firefox is the culprit in blocking the 2 step verification panel from showing so I could log in to iCloud. I had to use Chrome to finally see the boxes for the verification number.

Can you tell me what settings to change or is it possibly something on your end?

Thanks, Jeff

I sign into Firefox because I always believed it did something, but when I update the browser, I lose all my tabs. When restore previous session doesn't work, isn't that the point of signing into the browser so it remembers and you can push the whole Firefox session to another computer? Using this Firefox session on my MacBookPro and want it on my iMac and would like to know how to do that. Would like to know how to lock down the session too. What is going on right now, I don't understand where the session went. I'm logged in. What's the point of logging in? This is getting circular.

The BBC website believes I am in another country, other than the UK. It currently redirects from bbc.co.uk to bbc.com, with some content no longer being available.

I have checked my IP, and it is currently a UK-based IP address. I do not have any active VPN profiles.

I have refreshed Firefox, deleted profiles, and redownloded but still the issue presists.

This problem is not reflective on any other browsers on the same machine.

Grateful for your help.

This is the BBC's advice, which I have followed - https://www.bbc.co.uk/contact/questions/behind-the-scenes/website-domain-change

I am using Firefox 96.0.1 on macOS Monterey 12.1

If you have "'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed checked in Privacy & Security/Cookies and Site Data then this causes sites that use a service worker to fail registration with the error:

"Failed to register/update a ServiceWorker for scope https://every-layout.dev/: Storage access is restricted in this context due to user settings or private browsing mode."

This *only* occurs with Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Brave etc. all register the service worker OK. I know the workaround is to put in an Exception to Allow but this should not be necessary. In this case the service worker is use to provide access to paid for content and off-line reading.

I contacted the site's developers and they tell me that they have been waiting for ages for Mozilla to fix this issue and suggested I used an alternative browser.

Can anyone explain why Firefox behaves in this way and if this "feature" will be fixed on future releases?

Thanks

John

Hello,

Recently an adult site I go to, which features videos, isn't working: I can get to site, but nothing shows up on the screen. I've always had 'strict' privacy and adblocking protections, but something seems to have changed. This started happening maybe three weeks ago?

I did follow Mozilla instructions, and clicked on the 'shield' next to the address, changed 'enhance tracking' to off for this site. But that didn't solve the problem. What would be the next thing to try?

Thanks in advance!

I have Firefox 96.0.1. As of this morning, images will no longer load on any websites. The only thing that has changed since yesterday is that I followed some advice from the Washington Post on how to prevent scam emails. I have spent nearly two hours searching for and following advice to restore images on Firefox, but nothing has worked. I need more direct assistance!

Well, even the pulldown is not working here. None of the solutions for the garbled text works for me (and now that pulldown option isn't always working) and I am about to permanently change to Safari after years of being a Firefox advocate and user. Without any way to actually ask an actual person about this question/problem and not being a programmer I am exceedingly frustrated and disappointed. I do have to agree with the commenter who said we shouldn't have to go through this just to get a website to display. I've tried several times to upload an image but frankly I feel like just giving up
