This is suddenly happening to me on Firefox 92.0 (64-bit) running on Windows 10 21H1. Worked on 9/12, failed consistently starting 9/13, (possibly coinciding with auto-update from FF 91.0.2 to FF 92.0). I'm using WidevineCDM version 4.10.2209.1 to watch Xfinity stream recordings. Have submitted 3 crash reports via FF.

I need to be able to temporarily disable my ad blocker: I keep getting popups saying that an ad blocker has prevented me from accessing a certain site, or that it's interfering with a site's fraud protection settings. I'm running Windows 10 and Windows Security, and also MalwareBytes...but neither of them appear to contain an ad blocker. Is it Firefox?

Ever since I started using Firefox which was months ago, I've been getting this "Hmm. We're having trouble finding that site" page multiple times a day when opening links to various websites. Refreshing the page makes it load correctly. I've tried troubleshooting this in the past but didn't spend too much effort, but enough is enough. Things I have tried:

  • Disabling all extensions
  • Disabling hardware acceleration
  • I am using the default theme so there's nothing to disable there
  • Clearing the cache
  • Checking my internet connection (I'm connected and everything else works)
  • Flushing my DNS
  • Resetting Windows, which included reinstalling Firefox (I did this to fix something else, but still)
  • Disabling IPv6 and DNS prefetching
  • I am not using a Proxy

I feel like I've tried everything. What else can I do?

Dark Mode used to work beautifully in Firefox. Today it stopped working. I can choose Dark Mode in the settings page, and the settings page itself then uses Dark Mode. But Dark Mode does not work in any of the other pages, only the settings page. I think it must be a flaw in an update that was installed automatically today. (September 7, 2021)

Is there a way to uninstall this update and go back to the previous version. Dark Mode used to work beautifully and Firefox was my favorite browser. Can someone help? Thanks.

I am VERY unhappy !!! For a long time I have had Firefox reopen tabs from the previous session, but today they are all gone !! I have read in some of the community questions that the recent update unchecked that option and when I looked, that was what had happened. I tried clicking on "restore previous session" but that only opened tabs I had used and closed this morning. Is it in any way possible to get back those tabs I used to have? It also seems that some of my recent Bookmarks have disappeared as well, yet it has retained bookmarks that are over 13 years old.

HI!

My buddy highlighted an issue, then i re-checked myself and it is worrying to me.

To recreate (windows):

Get any (non-webistaller [not nececarry, to do it this way, but simpler to check]) firefox version (buddy got a fresh portable, i used my kinda privacy fortified one). Disconnect from the internet (plug the cable for fastest result). Make your version usable (install it) Start firefox, and open the Resource Monitor, with the network tab open expand the Network Activity portion (short alphabeticly, by name, check for F for firefox). Plug the cable in.

You soon will see FF will start looking for things, then an adress with a googleusercontet.com will pop up. Does not matter what is the Homepage's default browser, does no matters even if the Homepage is set to blank, this happens.

My best bet would be google safe browsing, but still, without any activity it is already connecting to that?

I know about the Google-FF/Mozilla relation, but this really made me think about why i still like firefox.

Greetings. I have scoured the web and read all the community posts on this robot head, under remote control, and orange stripes in the address bar problem that so many people seem to be having. There are a few answers, but almost all of them use very technical terms that are way above my head and not defined. None of them provide a sequence of steps to fix the problem that a browser novice might be able to follow. Surely there must be a way to fix this or to explain to frustrated users why it is there and not removable. None of my other Firefox browsers have this on other machines.

Is there a series of steps to solve the problem? That would be so helpful especially without undefined terms. Thanks so much. This type of answer will help so many frustrated users (me included of course) :)

Clicking a hyperlink in an Excel 365 worksheet will not open the URL in Firefox.

Using Excel 365, the worksheets contain tables of short interest history collected from a URL that varies only in the portion that is the companies symbol ( i.e. https://www.nasdaq.com/market-activity/stocks/akts/short-interest , where "akts" is the company symbol ). On the worksheet for each company this URL, with the correct symbol for the company has been included in a cell using the hyperlink feature.

In the past, clicking any of the hyperlinks immediately opened my default browser, which is the current version of Firefox, to the web page for the company identified by the symbol in the URL.

That changed after a version update of Firefox a number of months ago. Clicking the hyperlink will most times "freeze" Excel, and if I click anywhere in or on Excel a "not responding" message is thrown, and Excel must be manually closed resulting in a recover event for all workbooks that were open. Sometimes, not always, waiting several minutes, Firefox will open the URL. Not always. I've found that if that occurs, clicking on the same URL hyperlink that finally opened (after having closed it in Firefox) will crash Excel.

The attached image is a view of the "tip" still visible on a black screen after Excel has crashed.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

When I go to google.com and do a search the results page has the "tools" button but it does not work. The "people also ask" categories are also broken (they will not expand), and, if I click the "images" filter button to view images associated with my search it either shows no images (or only a few images) and a bunch of blank boxes. I have found that if I hold the shift key and click the reload button everything is back and working properly until the next time I do a google.com search, then it is back to the same odd behavior. So, my assumption here is that either a cookie or some site data is corrupting the results page for my search. Running Firefox 92.0 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Dell machine and everything was working fine until about two months ago. Also, Chrome does not show the same behavior. BTW. I have also done everything I have found that was recommended to fix Firefox issues with Google search. Run Firefox in private mode, run without plugins, changed themes, created new profile, I even completely uninstalled Firefox and did a clean install all with the same results. Any help is appreciated. It is almost got me ready to move back to Chrome.
