For over a week now I am receiving a popup from 'The Spruce' with the popup header being Mozilla Firefox (see Spruce.jpg). The popup has a facility to disable notifications from www.thespruce.com and I have selected this many times yet the popups keep coming several times a day. (see Spruce2.jpg). I have also visited the Spruce website and there is no unsubscribe link. I didn't subscribe in the first place and had never heard of The Spruce before this. Why is Firefox facilitating this spam that won't be disabled?

I'm running FF 122.0. I've set default search engine to DuckDuckgo. Won't do it. Then I deleted Google from the list of search engines in settings, after first unchecking it. When I open FF it still defaults to Google - why and how do I stop this? I'm in Canada if that makes a difference (it defaults on startup to www.google.ca). One time it loaded duckduckgo but then google.ca took over - that was when I'd unchecked google and before I deleted it completely. Now it just goes straight to google, help!

Hi,

Someone is trying to visit our website but keeps getting a 520 error response.

It appears that their user agent is being blocked at some point but I don't know why or where (I have tested the user agent in browser tools and get the same response). Yet, using it to visit other websites works fine, likewise if they test using another user agent they can access the site.

We use Cloudflare but I don't think the issue is their end as we have sites hosted elsewhere which can be accessed through the CDN with the same user agent.

Checking the server logs shows no sign of the visitor's IP address accessing the site.

The user agent is: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0

Just wondering if anyone can suggest how I might be able to narrow down where to find the issue or what I should be looking for? 33 seems like quite an old version, could it be the server doesn't accept visits from an older version?

Many thanks

I opened a Teams meeting invite which opened a web browser page in Firefox. A drop down appeared asking if I wanted to allow Firefox to typically open the invite in the Teams app. Normally I click no, but clicked yes. Now when I open a teams link it will repeatedly open the Teams invite tab in Firefox. I can kill it by closing the browser, but sometimes I have to do that 2 or 3 times.

I have managed to remove permissions for teams by clicking on the dash button on the teams page but it continues to do it. And when it's spam opening the tabs I can't stay on any page long enough to do anything as it prioritizes the new tab.

Up until this last update, in Gmail inbox, each message could be moused over top and action icons would show up. This no longer happens and I don't know why. It was very convenient not to have to open the message to take action on it and then return to the inbox. Now if I click the checkbox on the left side of the message those icons appear, but I never had to do this before??? I have not made any changes to the settings on my 1 year old Macbook Pro or Firefox configuration...

I have Firefox set to ask me where to download files that I want to download. It works for normal download links, but when I'm using my credit card company site's PDF viewer to look at a statement and I click on the download icon or link in the upper-left, it simply downloads the PDF (to my chosen "Save files to" folder in Settings). Is there a current way to change this behavior? Is this something that the website's code determines, overriding my Firefox setting?

I've been trying to sign in to pinterest, duolingo, etc using the 'sign in with google' option since my account was saved there. Whenever I click it, a sign in window opens up as usual, but it only ever shows a blank screen. No matter how long I wait, nothing shows up. I tried clearing cache, and it still didn't work. It worked before, but recently since the past 2 weeks, it became like this and I don't know how to fix it.

I have some extensions on my account so I'll list them out just in case one of them is the one making this problem: -Search by Image -Firefox Relay -uBlock Origin -DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials -TWP - Translate Between Pages -Ecosia


(Below is a screenshot showing what I mean by the sign in window being a blank screen.)

Sheesh, I tried to append to another question but failed. Just as well... I am using a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop with Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS. Every time I put my laptop in standby mode (close the display) then reopen the Firefox window expands beyond the left edge of the computer. I tried some solutions offered on the forum but they did not help. Now when this happens I hit the maximize button and the Firefox display actually shrinks to a small size. That's counterintuitive but... When I hit the maximize button again the Firefox window expands to the correct size. So it's now only a minor annoyance. It seems like there ought to be a simple solution to this but I haven't found it yet.

I'm trying to access a video on meethook.live. I did so in 2021 using the Firefox browser, but for some reason, it won't work anymore. The kind people at Meethook.live suggested using Chrome or Safari, but I don't want to use either of those browsers. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to change any settings to make it work. I tried a few security settings, dropping a few protections I had set up, but that hasn't helped. Can you suggest anything?

I am able to get to google using any other browser but Firefox is having issues. 7. I am able to ping google and google dns from cmd. 8. I've tried clearing local dns cache and trying again but no luck. 9. I've uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled, still no luck. I cannot use google.com or use services like Crunchyroll that use google to login.
