During an initial visit to slashdot.org Firefox hangs for approx 45 seconds while the status bar says "looked up a.fsdn.com." Subsequent visits during the same browser session load promptly.

This is with Preferences -> General -> Network Settings -> Enable DNS over HTTPS -> Cloudfare or NextDNS. With Firefox DoH disabled the problem is not present. [Interesting side, the machine's systemwide DNS settings are configured for Cloudfare 1.1.1.1 ]

AFAIK all other sites load normally. I've been using the Firefox DOH for several months with only the above site as a problem.

Ideas?

Environment: Firefox desktop 106.x and 107.x macOS 10.13.6 The problem is present in "Troubleshoot Mode" when Firefox DOH is enabled.

I recently switched to WordPress for site hosting, and set up their Titan email. It's worked fine for the first couple weeks, but yesterday after I did a routine clear cache and cookies, my email became a blank white page. The URL looks correct. Have spent several hours with WP help to no solution. Email works fine in Chrome, and all other WP functions are fine in Firefox.

Hi,

I have a problem with Firefox 102.5esr on MacOS 10.13 and storing the user-profile on a SMB-share in the intranet.

On startup I get the error "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional" and as expected, bookmarks and history are not working. Access etc. in the network are correct, I tried it with two different clients on two different servers (Linux-Server and NAS), the profile is a fresh created, deleting and recreating does not help.

If I copy the created profile on the local disk, Firefox starts without an error, bookmarks/history are working, if I copy this profile back to the SMB-share, I get back the error-message.

In the past (I don't remember when it was and which version) this was working with Firefox and today it still works with the current Thunderbird.

Any ideas?

PS: The described solutions in the KB are not working: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional

Thanks, kind regards, tg

Hello,

Ever since upgrading to Firefox 107.0, I'm denied access to select website, some of which are corporate websites such as Nokia and others. The latest occurrence had the following reference no#:

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.nokia.com/phones/support" on this server.

Reference #18.9cf7df17.1669164130.8b3c1e51

If I employ other browsers like Safari or Brave, I'm able to successfully access both this page and others which are restricted on Firefox. So, what might be causing this to happen? Firefox is my preferred browser, therefore I'd like to find a fix. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

FireFox V. 107.0 -MBP-High Sierra.

Lately the last couple of months when I google search webpages then select them, Fire Fox doesnt bring up the article, Its been happening a lot and getting really irritating. So I bring up Google Chrome and it always brings up the article. SEE THE PICTURES. I use only Fire Fox as my browser, I keep Chrome around for when Fire Fox doesnt want to work properly. As you will see in the pictures the same website for both browsers. Fire Fox wont show the article no matter how many times I refresh the page or shut FF down, or reboot my MBP, but Chrome works perfectly every damned time. Why cant Fire Fox open the article but Chrome can? I need your help, any advice is greatly appreciated. SEE THE PICTURES.

I am unable to login to my Tangerine account on Firefox for Mac OS. I can log in with my iDevices, also if I use Google Chrome. The only thing that doesn't work is Firefox.

Specifically, the login page just keeps reloading, it never gets to the next page which asks for a PIN.
