There's a problem with the site filmcomment.com that only happens on Firefox and not other browsers. As of today, when I load the site an ad pops up for a newsletter. I click the X and the text of the ad goes away, but the screen remains dark and the site is unusable. I have turned off all ad blocking for this site and have tried clearing cookies.

A couple of weeks ago I purchased and installed Mozilla VPN. My laptop processing immediately slowed and apps started hanging up. I ran all the system cleanup actions, but nothing helped. I uninstalled the VPN app, but it didn't help, so I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but the system is still running slow. I'm wondering if the VPN might have caused some other problem that I can't see. Any idea what else I can do? I'm running Windows 10.

I have two computers running Windows 10 20H2, fully patched, x64. I have a license for Mozilla VPN. I installed the VPN on the newer of the two computers without problem. I am failing on the second, a dell INSPIRON-9400 laptop. The error is Failed to create OpenGL context ... The suggested solution is to install an OpenGL 2.0 driver OR the Angle Open GL ES 2.0 and to make sure the libEGL.dll, libGLESv2.dll and d3dcompiler_*.dll are in the executable directory or the path. The two lib*.dll seem to be automagically installed in the C:\Program Files\Mozilla\Mozilla VPN directory. The d3d's are not. I tried copying all of the d3d's from C:\Windows\System32 to the VPN directory -- no joy. I was not able to find an Open GL driver for the video chipset in the 9400. Advice please.

This is the first time I've needed to do this in years but, at one time, installing a root (or, for that matter, third-level) CA certificate in Firefox was straightforward. Unless I'm missing something --and I've been poking around these files for over an hour-- it is now, at best, quite obscure. Is there a way for me to install a CA certificate for a CA you have chosen to not recognize and include with the system? If so, a clear explanation of how to do it would be appreciated. And, yes, I understand the implications of doing this.

Thanks.

I run ff on both desktop and mobile. I watch youtube on both. On desktop, no problems. Add ons include adbock for youtube. On mobile, I can see the thumbnails but when I attempt to play the video, I get "invalid response recieved" error message.

I've disabled the adblocking software thinking that was causing the problem, but nope. No change.

Whats up? Is Youtube attempting to force us to use their mobile app rather than accessing it through a browser?

Hi Folks!

I'm located in the U.S.A. in the Denver, CO. area. I'm not using a VPN or any sort of IP masking technology, so my normal Comcast public IP address should be what's visible when I browse the web. Also the language is set to English-US in Firefox's settings.

Recently I noticed that when I try to login at GoDaddy, the GD website redirects me to the India version of their site (in.godaddy.com). I'm posting in this forum because this only happens when I go there in Firefox. If I use Chrome or Edge (i.e. Chrome rebranded) I get the U.S. version of the GD site. I've verified that my public IP, currently 98.43.226.196, is in fact registered to Comcast. I've cleared cookies and cache, restarted Firefox, but GD still sends Firefox to its India version. Does anyone have any idea why this may be happening?

Thanks!

Starting today, when I click on a video in Youtube using Firefox 88.0.1, the video will not start. When I click the start icon in the middle of the screen the page reloads and the video starts. Problem is when browsing you have to select a video and then when the video page loads you must start the video. When using the back button, you must go back two pages not one.

Until at least around 1 month ago it was possbile to open all tabs from another device's firefox. You could go to the Synced Tabs Sidebar, right-click the other device's name and click something named along the lines of "open all tabs".

When I tried to do this today, I noticed that the "normal" way to the Sync-menu via |||\ symbol doesn't work anymore and I at least found out that I could get there using via the firefox account. I can send a (single) tab to another device and I can see the list of the sync'ed tabs of a computer, but it is no longer possible to right-click that device's name and thereby getting to the "open all tabs" option.

After this was - seemingly? - patched out, is there any other way left to do this or was there any new way implemented?

thx

I am using Thunderbird for a number of accounts. They each have their own SMTP server for outbound. I have a gmail account and when I try to send a message it has another of my addresses on the from line to the right of the address of the account. It must be a return address different.

This happens if I click send mail and then pick the proper personality to send from, and in the dropdown list it is wrong. If I click send mail in the account it works OK.

I have searched and tried to change it to the one for the account, but I just don't see it anywhere on the account to change. What am I missing here?
