I'm running Linux Ubuntu 20.4

Whenever I try to use a website that has a browse button (e.g. youtube uploader, google drive, etc) I click it but nothing happens, no file browser comes up.

As per previous discussions on this issue, I have tried Safe mode, refresh (in fact total new operating system and re-install of firefox) and disabling hardware acceleration, even turning off popup blocker and none of these have made any difference.

I am a HTML, PHP developer, but lately I am going crazy because the browser doesn't refresh the page when I make changes in the code, apparently the page is refreshed from cache and is not showing the changes. Could You fix that Please. I tried the recommendations of press Shift and the refresh button and the Control, Shift, R, key combination, but that doesn't work. Thank You Very Much.

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?

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.

Been trying to reslove a issue i've noticed since updating to the latest firefox version that was released this week. Never had a problem before. Chrome and Edge load and play stream normally. Updated all the normal things like drivers for audio and video card, reinstalled Firefox with a new profile, no add ons etc, turned hardware acceleration on and off, still get the same issue.

System is overpowered so its not down to it running slow or being old and also intenet connection is fine and I'm cabled in before anyone asks the "Have you turned it on and off questions :)"

Going to try and downgrade to the version before and see it fixes the issue and hope its resloved in the next hotfix.

It should be noted that this problem is related to streams and not normal videos, however someone on this forum posted problems with lagging videos, so maybe related.

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.

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) :)

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.

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.
