Firefox is denying access to Astound/wave mail. About 3 days ago Firefox posted a warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead. I am wondering if my recent activity is the cause. On October 23 my MasterCard account was charged $2.99 by a firm in Cyprus. MasterCard is investigating, and suggested that the card be cancelled, with a new card to arrive in the mail. They also advised that I alert my contacts that use MasterCard. In that process I attempted to change my password with Astound/Wave. But, every time I tried is was rejected. I Tried about a dozen times, one attempt right after another. I am thinking that that activity alerted Firefox that someone, other than me, was attempting to learn my information. Just seeing a dozen actions in a brief amount of time should have caused concern for me.

Is this possibly why Firefox is blocking our access to Astound/WAve mail?

Hello,

I know this question is probably somewhere here but I can't find the answer (what I tried below).

So, I have a Debian 10 computer, with Firefox 78.15.0esr. I'm using the Adwaita (dark version) theme on my OS.

The problem is that Firefox uses the dark theme in Its menus (I don't mind) but It transmits to websites this setting and thus, websites supporting dark mode use it (Google, DuckDuckGo for example). I don't like that. I want them to use the light mode but keeping my theme on my OS.

So, I tried to change the value to 0, 1, 2, 3 (I tried each for them) for the setting layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override and put "Adwaita:light" in the widget.content.gtk-theme-override field in about:config. Each time I restarted Firefox. It never works, websites still continue to use the dark theme...

Thanks in advance

When I enter the address of a website that I like the browser opens a chinese version of the same website. I try changing the address repeatedly and it always goes to the chinese website.

www.lomography.com goes to lomography.cn automatically. I can't change it.

I want to view the website in English (US).

Been trying to find my way through controls to change this but to no avail.

What do I do?

I am no longer able to log in to eBay using Firefox. I am using Firefox 78.15esu bc I have an older Mac that will only support up to Mac OSX 10.11. I was able to use eBay up until this morning when the site asked me to log in again... and verify that I am indeed a human through the hCaptcha checker. The checker cycles between identifying horses and lions... and every time, I seem to pass but then comes the message "Failed to pass Captcha, Please try again." I can access eBay using Safari and Chrome. Right before the failure today, the rendering of the eBay pages was odd... needed 3x the screen width to see the whole page. eBay says that the problem is on the Mozilla side of this issue... mostly because I can use a different browser without problem. I think I am in agreement with them. I don't really want to use a different browser but I will bc I like eBay, too. Please advise.

How do I stop Firefox from adding “HTTP” or “HTTPS” to a URL address?

I need to access an essential security device that has an address similar to my modem, with numbers and periods only. But Firefox consistently adds either "HTTP" or "HTTPS" to the address, so Firefox says, “Unable to connect.” I am able to access my modem page without Firefox adding anything to the address. The instructions I found (at Support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/https-only-prefs) say to disable or insert exceptions in the “HTTPS only" option on the “Privacy and Security” section of Firefox Preferences. However, there is NO "HTTPS only" selection in my Preferences (Version 78.150esr). The other suggestion, to “Click the Lock icon in the address bar,” will not work because there is no Lock icon in the address bar with this address. I have "Use the address bar for search. . ." unchecked in the "Search" section of Firefox Preferences. I also tried unchecking “Provide search suggestions,” disabling all of my Firefox extensions, and using “non-private browsing” mode. Safari browser will not connect to this URL either. Help!

On start-up the Firefox browser shows a list of articles/topics that is referred to as Pockets. I clicked on one from Orion Magazine this morning and after the article was up for about 30 seconds a graphic appeared that showed a large metal looking sphere and was suppose to augment the article. This graphic completely locked up my computer. I am running an ancient iMac, mid-2007, and it took bringing down my wi-fi network and a little frustration to get my computer unfrozen. Please take down this article.

Version: 78.15.0esr (64-bit)

The bookmark dropdown submenus won't open any more. I can click Bookmarks>next random menu>next menu and it won't show the bookmarks. To be clear, I am going to a folder bookmark and then a sub-folder bookmark which won't show what is inside this sub-folder.

Any idea why this is happening?

TIA
