As of today, Feb 7th 2022, when I reload pages that have an email input box (to "sign up"), the page jumps down to where it can display that box as the last line displayed (which might be at the very bottom of the page). This happens on every page that has an email i/p box, but does not happen on any that do NOT have that box.

Furthermore, if that i/p box is about halfway down the page, and I have scrolled below it, then upon reloading the page it will scroll up so that the i/p box is the very first line displayed.

The i/p box is always filled with my email addy, and I don't mind if it is not (but I can't stop it from putting it in)

Restarting the browser did not change anything.

FWIW, I do not have caret browsing activated.

Yesterday when I installed the 96.0 update it has forced my background color into a dark grey and ignores the background color setting. I would like to know if there is a setting, add on or update that can return this to normal. The theme I am using has not been updated in 2 years so I am fairly sure the update has caused this.

I am tri-lingual, so I switch between three languages all the time. How can I quickly switch between my favorite 3 languages (en_US, de_DE, es_CL)? I couldn't care less about the other locales and only very rarely need other languages like fr_FR. Please get all those out of my way. Please make the drop-down such that it only shows locales I used in the last year, with an extra option "others" where you move all the rest.

Hello, I'm not sure if I chose the right topic above.

I'm trying to visit a site which is still using http. But Firefox is automatically redirecting to https, where of course it cannot resolve the site.

In settings, I have it set for "Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode". But still, Ff is redirecting.

I don't know. Maybe I should set for https only, and then enter an exception??

I have searched for a solution, but for every solution I find, when I look up how to do it, it says, before you try this, try that first. After about 5 rounds of that, I got too confused and gave up.

Oh, I also cleared the cache, but no help.

I've enabled all the extra info below. But let me know if you need any other specific info. Do you need the address of the website?

Thank you very much.

At 93, I need extra help. I lke and have used Firefox as my default browser fo a long time. Accepting your uopdate has caused problems for me. I will arrange a house call for technical repair, but hevwill need some help. I am thinking that it is probably best to delete the Firefox programming and download again.

I searched an address and Google Maps gives an (accurate) estimated travel time to that address. Within Settings>Locations they are not listed as having permission to use location data and when they requested location data, I selected not to share.

Is there a way to specifically block a website from accessing location data? Is there a way to report suspisious activity from a website?

Thanks!

Since probably FF94, i can't remove single page windows (like popup) by turning them into a tab anymore.

Before when a popup window appeared i moved it to the already opened main window to turn it into tab to not have ton of "recently closed windows". But since FF94, when i move a window, instead of disappear after become a tab, firefox only duplicate the webpage (i have the new tab and the identical webpage window). Until now the only way i have to remove the annoying windows is to kill firefox app with windows task manager and uncheck them in the tab recovery.

How i can have firefox able to really move windows into tab like before instead of copy them? Or have a way to permanently delete unwanted windows i don't use anymore in the "recently closed windows" list without killing the task.

Also moving tab from a firefox window to another work normally (no duplicate), the problem occurs only when FF windows has a single tab.

2 issues. 1) Have used Firefox for years on Windows 10 on a laptop. For the last 2 months I have had great difficulty signing in to do online banking with Bank of Montreal (BMO). I get a lot of 404 error messages. Clearing the cache and history works occasionally, but not consistently. I do not have this problem when I use Chrome and I do not have this problem with any other site. This is really frustrating and inconvenient because it is so inconsistent and yet so important. 2) For the last month, every time I start Firefox I get a message telling me Firefox was unable to find previous settings and I have to select 'Start new Session' as it seems unable to restore itself otherwise. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I'm running 96.0.3 on a fully patched Win 10 Pro system - both O/S and programs. When Firefox is running I'm getting these pop-up error messages randomly with changing content. They stay on screen for some seconds and then go away. Message states it's from (via) 5.back2yard.biz. I put that in my hosts file and I'm still getting them. My network is a cable modem hooked to Xfinity and then cable connected to another fully newer patched router. All addresses are 10. range. I ran both a Malwarebytes scan and a Windows Security scan - both are clean.

I'm unable to upload a small image after a hour so I'll give up on that right now.

I need to re-post this question as, although it has been asked previously, that session is now closed. It only started happening recently, but I'm not sure whether to blame the latest FireFox version, 96, or Windows 10, 21H2. I also run Avast and MalwareBytes AVs.

Not sure where this fits in so I started here. I have been running firefox for a very long time. For my home page, I am using Protopage. I have my google calendar as one of the widgets on the page. I have it set up correctly. It was showing up yesterday. Now today it is not showing. I am getting this error:

Firefox Can’t Open This Page

To protect your security, accounts.google.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

I have not made any changes to Protopage or Firefox.

Got any ideas what has changed? What I need to fix to get it working again?
