  1. Not a bother at all - sometimes it takes a while to get a response, but the folks here are going to be both glad that you got it solved, and curious as to what may have caused the issue in the first place. At any rate, thanks for at least coming back and posting not only the fact that you had solved the issue, but also how you did so.
  2. Last I checked, MalwareBytes, the AV product, should not be messing with network stuff. I just recently installed it again for the umpteenth time. Did you perhaps instead get the MalwareBytes Privacy VPN instead?
  3. I'm using Cosmos myself. For me, it has the right balance of reducing large white spaces and still a bit of color pop for a lot of different things.
  4. I know this year has been a very trying one for all of us around the globe. So, here's to spreading some holiday cheer by wishing everyone here a very Merry Christmas! Stay safe!
  5. Thanks for this. I also didn't change anything in advanced settings but I *had* enabled pen testing setting when this error started occurring with all my PowerPoint slides stored in OneDrive. I've gone back and verified - simply enabling that Penetration testing setting immediately causes a recurrence of the issue with my PowerPoints, and disabling that setting causes the issue to regress back to normal. Thanks for paying careful attention to that - I didn't think that there would be a link and did not notice the change after attempting to reset advanced setting would change anything outside of the advanced settings area.
  6. Welcome, @GaryBaley, to the forums! Sorry you experienced the issue, but glad you were able to get it resolved.
  7. Verified on work laptop with pages that were still exhibiting the issue that I did not reload (for further testing) as well as in old profile on my desktop - I cannot make it happen anymore. Marked TetonBob's reply as answer.
  8. Thanks for the heads up - my desktop installed that version this morning already. I'm still using the new profile, so I'll go back and try the old one in a few minutes.
  9. After reboot everything on the laptop still works perfectly fine. I told MB BG to go ahead to the NewEgg sites it was blocking, without marking them as 'safe' and the prompt did not appear again after reboot either.
  10. So far. I said that the cache clearing was optional, but if I closed the browser and opened it again, the error occurred again, so I did a cache clear and that seemed to fix it permanently. I'll test more and report back.
  11. A fix that seems to work is the following: Turn off web protection. (Optional) Clear your Firefox cache (see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-clear-firefox-cache ) Reload the page(s) with the issue After that you can turn on web protection and it should be fine. HTH
  12. Yup - I posted about it and submitted logs - TetonBob said they are now investigating.
  13. I created a new profile on my desktop and it doesn't occur there. On my laptop, disabling web protection and re-loading all pages seems to have fixed it, except now I'm getting a Browser Guard popup block on New Egg pages - I think that is unrelated, though.
  14. Q: Can you ask if they reverted the setting where using the "Mark all forums" link sent you back to the main forums page, or did that setting simply revert on the install of 4.5.3? Because I, for one, found that extremely helpful, since I use the notification bell to find posts I need to look at....
  15. OK, I've done some extensive testing, and here is what I've found, Bob: Firefox Nightly 83.0a1 (2020-09-23) (64-bit). Default profile, 2 different machines (extended testing performed on my work laptop, as I have made 0 changes since the MB update was passed). On my Desktop, I went ahead and created a new profile with same addons, and loaded same web pages, with respective logins as required, and nothing is broken in new profile. In old profile, if I disable web protection, and then reload every page that is having an issue connecting, the page loads perfectly fine. If I re-enable Web protection, the page continues to load fine. But if I close the browser and then open it back up, some pages fails to load again - force reloading them seems to work fine though. Example URLs: https://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/83.0a1/whatsnew/?oldversion=81.0a1 In addition, I have several NewEgg pages that have a MBBG blocks for trojan activity lol. URLs: moz-extension://70bbb8a6-f7c5-46a3-870f-67e23d00ad84/app/eventpages/block.html?referrer=null&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newegg.com%2Fp%2Fpl%3Fd%3Ddisplayport%2B1.4%2Bcables&host=www.newegg.com&type=malware&subtype=trojan&tabId=12&filename=undefined moz-extension://70bbb8a6-f7c5-46a3-870f-67e23d00ad84/app/eventpages/block.html?referrer=null&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newegg.com%2FToslink-Digital-Optical-Audio-Cables%2FSubCategory%2FID-2839%3FTid%3D172220&host=www.newegg.com&type=malware&subtype=trojan&tabId=13&filename=undefined moz-extension://70bbb8a6-f7c5-46a3-870f-67e23d00ad84/app/eventpages/block.html?referrer=null&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newegg.com%2Fp%2Fpl%3FN%3D100168121%2520601297384%2520601318537%2520600035592%25204814&host=www.newegg.com&type=malware&subtype=trojan&tabId=14&filename=undefined All three of these pages were giving me that same error as above - and additionally, loaded perfectly fine *without* any issues after disabling the web protection in MB temporarily. Finally, as I stated before, a user at 10Forums used the support tool to cleanly install non-ßeta and all issues disappeared. I'm willing to try that, with the except of installing the ßeta again, to see if the issue recurs, on the laptop. Otherwise, I'll wait on the next step from you.
  16. I will test more when I get back. Time for some dinner. To be clear: This is only occurring in an existing profile in Nightly and an existing profile in Firefox - in a new profile I created for Nightly it does not occur. And it does not occur in Chrome, Edge (Chromium), nor beta, developer or canary.
  17. Thanks for that - I was going to do that, but then I thought the issue was fixed, then I realized it was still occurring, and by that time I'd forgotten about a new post. mbst-grab-results.zip
  18. Same user reports unchecking ßeta and then using support tool to cleanly install 1.0.45 fixes the issue for him - so an issue somewhere with the ßeta only?
  19. I thought the updated UP would fix things - but it has not. In my existing profiles, using both Firefox Nightly, and Firefox (release build) I am getting the following, on multiple websites. And on the MB forums, this is what I see in the old profile: On a brand new profile (created using Firefox Nightly, with the same addons installed as in the existing one), I have no issues. And I am not the only one experiencing this, at least one other user (from 10F) reported the same behavior.
  20. Same for me, but the update package caused all sorts of havoc (as in breaking Firefox from viewing many, many site - including not letting me get to the MB forums in anything other than a text-only format). Fortunately, the newest UP 1.0.30308 seems to have (mostly) fixed that issue. I was surprised at the update notification, but did so after I completed my last conference call - other than that update package going bonkers, and now being fixed, everything else seemed to go well.
  21. That was my experience. The first time it took me to the latest post in that thread. The second time it shows me a "No new posts"
  22. Also - live notifications are off by about 30+ seconds. I saw Ron's reaction to my post, and clicked on it and I could already see Ron's reply - but the notification for his reply took over 30 seconds to actually register. I suppose that is due to a variety of factors, but I'm mentioning it *just in case* it should not be taking that long. Personally, I don't care, though.
  23. Have to admit though - while the reactions themselves are somewhat useful, in various places - I absolutely *LOVE* the notification for any given's deity showing the number of posts marked solved. If that is working the way I think (meaning a post they made was marked as the answer to a thread started by someone else).
  24. OK, So I just discovered the reactions. Ugh. This is gonna be fun.
