I have used Firefox since forever, was a Netscape user in the past

But for about 3 months Firefox simply is no good anymore\

It is more and more sites I can not access with Firefox and have to use Edge instead.

Last example, just now

https://www.cibc.com/en/journeys/new-to-canada.html

See screens attached

This is just one example, many other sites simply do not open, or open properly, in Firefox

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Thank you

Hello!

I have the problem that every of my most visited sites are loading normal fast except for YouTube.

YouTube needs about 2 to 3 seconds to load the site itself and the thumbnails like "lagging" pictures which are rendering real slow while my other most visited sites like Twitch, Reddit or Twitter are loading in about 1 second or less. (i have installed the "Page Load Time" addon to check that).

I have only installed uBlock and nothing else.

Firefox browser had failed repeatedly when trying to display sections within 2 websites. I receive "Can not load the page" at Blue Cross and Blue Shield and download freezes the page, site and my computer at a credit card company- requiring end task and complete shut down of computer. This has been occurring for 2 months. I do not have any issue loading these sites or sections via Edge or Chrome. Will this be corrected with the name change? Will there be another browser page that is more reliable?

If not, you don’t need to change your name on Firefox browser. You can just close it down and I will move to Edge or Chrome.

None of your Troubleshooting answers on your Support page covers my situation. I have cleared history, verified settings based on internet articles from others with this issue. Please have someone contact me directly. I’m tired of trying to fix this issue with your browser.

This isn't a constant issue for me, but occasionally the browser will suddenly break such that when I switch tabs, nothing actually updates until I do something like restore/maximise the window. I can still interact with the page itself, but whether using the mouse or keyboard shortcuts, changing, opening, or closing tabs, or even typing in the navigation bar, won't do anything until I resize the window again. I haven't been able to figure out any pattern to when this state triggers, but after it does, it doesn't clear up without closing and reopening the browser. I have recorded a video showing this behavior but I am unable to upload it here, and still images would not properly convey the issue.

I have used Firefox for email, web browsing etc for many years without issue, until about 2 weeks ago. I was using gmail to send an email and a small attachment would not fully upload (locking up at 75%). I looked at gmail help and the recommendation was to flush cookies and cache. I did this and have had problems ever since. GMail: Connecting to gmail is a hit or miss affair - it mostly does not work at all but on rare occasions it does connect. If it does load it is very slow, often I cannot change tabs or access labels. I cannot switch inboxes to other accounts. I mostly cannot send emails (though very occasionally I can). When trying to switch accounts it mostly just says something went wrong but once or twice it has brought up the list of accounts but I cannot select one. I can rarely send an email - it is very slow, it says working but mostly nothing happens. Sometimes an Oops 01 error message appears. I have not been able to attach a file to any email I have tried to send. I am seem to be receiving emails without issue. [Gmail mostly works on Chrome but sometimes I have trouble sending].

Google Search: When I use Google as a search engine I often get only a white screen but it will sometimes bring up a screen of search results however when I click on the link either nothing happens or it is really slow to load the page - once the page loads navigating around the site is normal.

I have no issues when using Duck Duck Go or if I type the address into the address bar or it is a book marked site.

YouTube: I can rarely connect to Youtube using Firefox - it mostly just sits at a white screen with the address in the address bar but nothing happening. If it does connect it is incredibly slow at searching or changing screens. I often get a message saying I am not connected to the internet but I am because I have other things open and operating.

Google docs: I cannot access google docs using Firefox but can using Chrome.

I have no issues with online gaming or streaming sites. It seems to be only google related services that are giving me grief.

For probably years now, I have this problem on my laptop. WhatsApp Web can't load any stickers - not that I send, receive or any in my drawer.

I can't understand why it's specifically WhatsApp and specifically the stickers, but I tried to fix it: - I logged off and on to WhatsApp Web, didn't help. - I disabled then removed all extensions, didn't help. - I've removed all profile data, didn't help. - I reinstalled Firefox after wiping the AppData folder, didn't help.

This problem has persisted over updates and doesn't happen in Chrome - stickers download there just fine. It also doesn't happen on any other computer I use with Firefox.

I tried to investigate the cause of the problem. First off, the sticker HTTP request on the network tab fails with the weird error status NS_ERROR_INTERCEPTION_FAILED or NS_BINDING_ABORTED (both appear). The console says the following:

Failed to load ‘https://mmg.whatsapp.net/v/t62.15575-24/31187942_602693368536193_4171257086940206138_n.enc?ccb=11-4&oh=01_AdSo-95lTiTT9NthZMidBB00c8tI8PlEuBlxvoIsC9rkuA&oe=6558CC66&_nc_sid=000000&hash=PDQ3jJY4Svmj3ZJIIkyTzdyKEeyiyBLg64CuZRuaEIM%3D&mode=auto&mms-type=sticker&__wa-mms=’. A ServiceWorker passed a promise to FetchEvent.respondWith() that rejected with ‘TypeError: NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource.’.

(Reason: CORS request did not succeed). Status code: (null).

I thought it was a CORS thing, but it doesn't seem to actually be the reason - after googling, "CORS request did not succeed" just seems to be a failed request and unrelated to CORS. I ran Wireshark to sniff the request, and what I found was that Firefox sends an OPTIONS request (even though it doesn't log it in the Network tab), the OPTIONS request is answered with a 200 OK, and then this error occurs.

This convinces me that this is an internal problem with Firefox or with some other program on my computer that interferes specifically with Firefox. Any ideas as to what could be the issue? I'll be happy to supply more logs if needed.

Tired of the bullying tactics of Microsoft forcing me to accept Microsoft Edge when all I want is Google Chrome, so I'm thinking of making Mozilla my default browser, but I'm concerned about whether Mozilla will tranfer all my info. I sell the occasional bits on Etsy and Ebay. I had found the perfect tool to edit my photos on Chrome. Now this has gone haywire because I am forced into using Edge, which does not give me anything like the editing choices I have on Chrome. I have followed all the directions given by Microsoft to get off Edge and back into Chrome but they have all failed miserably, so I am trapped in Edge and all my efforts are turning into Groundhog Day ! Also if I return to Firefox, what will happen to all my photos, and the folders they are kept in ? As an 86 year old, I need clear, concise directions on how I can restore everything I need to be able to return to a browser I was completely comfortable with. Please advise.
