For this web site: http://ulsterhabitat.org/ in the post Ulster Habitat News (facebook) (third image, first small one), the link to the facebook page will only open if: I right click on it and choose "open in new tab" (It does not matter if I give focus to the new tab or not), then I left click on the link and it works. If I left click on the link first, nothing happens. (link says "Ulster Habitat Facebook").

What I have done: run in safe mode, refreshed Firefox, reinstalled Firefox 43.0.3 (with all profile data removed - as clean as could be) with no extensions, altered settings or add-ons. Behavior is always the same.

System is Windows 7 Pro, latest up-to-date version, but Firefox also does this on a W7 Home system, and a W10 Home system, both with latest Firefox. No Firefox extensions or add-ons on the W10 machine.

Bonus: Chrome 47.0.2526.106 does not do this (it opens the link immediately). IE 11.0.26 does just what Firefox does. It would seem to me that the link should either work or not work, but not depend on opening in a new tab first. Fascinated by this. Thank you. Tim

I get this error message when trying to access my microsoft accounts, including hotmail, from my desktop. This is the only site that has an issue, I can access other website, secure or not. I have the same access issue with chrome and IE, but Tor browser works. I can access my microsoft accounts from my laptop which is on the same home network. I have tried clearing cache, cookies, history. I have run ipconfig /flushdns and ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew. I have run firefox in safe mode. I have tried disabling my firewall and virus protection. I have connected direct to the cable modem instead of through a router. I have run a virus scan (i'm using bitdefender). I have tried everything that seems appropriate from this website: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Error_loading_any_website#Router_configuration. Nothing seems to work. I'm out of ideas for what to try next. Any help is appreciated.

I have RA with fine motor control problems.

At times I have difficulty in getting the cursor on the pinned tabs. I don't have problems seeing so don't need to zoom in to make everything larger, I just need wider pinned tabs.

I use FF 63.0.1 on my Win10 laptop and need to make the pinned tabs wider for ease of use.

I found information about making unpinned tabs wider in about:config but can't find anything for the pinned tabs.

Thank you for your time.

Today, I have been having massive problems loading the site at www.theguardian.com/uk.

The symptoms vary from server disconnected error, to pages loading slowly or incompletely.

As far as I can see, the problem only happens on the one site, Guardian. I have cleared both cache and cookies, to no effect. I have tried restarting Firefox in safe mode, without addons, to no effect.

I don't have the problem on other sites. I don't have the problem if I use Chrome browser instead. I don't have any Nvidia software installed (there is another thread about FF v.43 and Nvidia which seems to have the same symptoms).

Unfortunately, that is about the limit of my techie ability.

If anyone has any suggestions what else I can try, I would be very grateful.

I cannot login to gmail since upgrading to windows 10, i can login to my gmail account from chrome and internet explorer but not firefox. I am running the latest version 40.x.x. I have tried deleting history, deleting cookies, deleting cookies-sqlite file incase it was corrupt, I have installed a fresh version of firefox after a complete uninstall and deleting all the appdata folders, my privacy setting are set to allow cookies and third party cookies and to keep them for ever. It is really frustrating now, it just keeps refreshing the screen and staying on the password entry screen. I really want to continue using firefox but i think i am going to have to go back to chrome if i can't even use gmail

In our organization we are using a firewall which has an Intrusion Prevention System. The IPS has a certificate which must be imported into the browsers to be able to load SSL websites. This allows the IPS to inspect the contents of secure packets for any malware or viruses. The problem is this isn't working very well with Firefox. Most secure sites bring up one of the following errors:

Secure Connection Failed The connection to <website> was interrupted while the page was loading. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

OR

Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to <website>. SSL peer rejected a handshake message for unacceptable content. (Error code: ssl_error_illegal_parameter_alert) The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get Firefox to work in this environment?

Firefox on mac osx with automatic updates for OS and Firefox up to date for over a year recently started producing failed downloads (probably between 9-13 and 9-14, around the time of the last Firefox update). What has been tried to fix this: everthing from the Mozilla help pages “What to do if you can't download or save files” asserted to be based on information from “Unable to save or download files (mozillaZine KB)” with the exception of dealing with the "plist" file since that could not be found in this OS installation. If anything has changed through these efforts, it has been to cause the failure to be more severe. Before attempting any fixes, the downloads usually produced a zero-byte file of the expected name and an apparently full-length download file with the expected name and a ".part" extension (or an abbreviated download file with a jumbled alphanumeric name and ".part" extension). After all the fixes were attempted, with the additional trial of patching the profile from TimeMachine back-ups well before the initiation of the problems, and then a final effort of a complete Firefox re-install (freshly downloaded via the separate account on the computer then Firefox removed prior to a fresh install), downloads now fail for that one problem account producing only the zero-byte file of the expected name and no ".part" files yet seen again. Created new profiles in Firefox under the same computer account inherit the same download problems (tried twice).

FYI: in addition to the troubleshooting information below, the computer account with the Firefox problems reports another four plug-ins (Blue Jeans, RBlue Jeans and "install" for both). As these do not show up on this computer account where the Firefox browser has no download issues, this may matter. But since the download issues were independent of Safe Mode operation for Firefox, presumably the plug-in differences would not matter.

I hope something can help me, because I don’t’ know what to do.

I check my hotmail account with Firefox, never had any trouble. But, after UI changed with hotmail account a month or two back, I’ve been having trouble signing it with Firefox, sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t. During this time, sometimes it would let me in and sometimes it won’t let me check at all.

I just keep getting this error: "Something went wrong and we can't sign you in right now. Please try again later."

  • BTW: Server status for hotmail is always 'green, no problems detected' when I get this error, so that makes me more confused on what's going on.*

That’s in Firefox, I then tried Firefox in safe mode (add-ons disabled) still same error.

I then tried restarting my PC, clearing catch/cookies, nothing seamed to matter and I have latest version of Firefox.

But, oddly (or not) when I try to sign in with IE, it logs me in just fine.

  • I also tried Chrome, I can log into my hotmail account just fine also.*

Anyone else having trouble with there hotmail account + Firefox?


I haven’t added/removed any programs for a while, just updated flash player/adobe/etc, you know, the usual stuff.

All screenshots I took are attached, details of when are in file name.

  • add images feature on creating page, is not working for me, had to do this way, sorry*

I'm using latest version of Firefox v40.03 on my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS, no other sites I have this trouble, can someone please help me?

I did send a question to the tech people at Microsoft, but only got 3 replies from them: 1 - ‘Thank you for contacting us', 2 - ‘Can you install/run this program FiddlerCap and send us the results?’ 3 - ‘We are going to send you over to this other department instead, you’ll hear from them soon…'

That was ~5 days ago. Nothing so far from them.

  • I don’t’ know what FiddlerCap was, I think it’s something to test the https or something, but got these odd errors when running it*

I really love Firefox have been a fan since v3 (I think, long ago), if anyone has any idea please tell me, if you need any info or something , ask and I will get it!

I don’t know if it’s related but I also got once or twice, an odd secure connection error, but I only got it a few times, so I don’t know if it’s related to this or not.

Error I got: “…Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to sc.imp.live.com. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). (Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap)

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem…”

I tried changing the line “security.tls.version.fallback-limit” to 1 (originally was 3) instead, but restart PC/clear cookies, restart Firefox, nothing, no error, but still no hotmail access with Firefox.

I've updated a website. When I paste the url into Firefox it keeps changing it and displaying a different page.

The one I want is http://megalithmovers.org/blog-2015-10-24.htm Firefox keeps changing it to http://megalithmovers.org/blog-2015-01-24.htm Both pages are valid (they have the date in the url as YYYY-MM-DD) I know the url is valid, I've pasted it into other browsers. Somewhere FF must have cached the January page. Being too clever for it's good, it's decided I've mis-typed the url and displayed that page, not the October one. I've deleted all the history for this site, but that makes no difference.

Please don't tell me to reset FF to the default settings - I'll have re-install all the Addons then.

When I was opening new links from Google search result pages, sometimes I got the 'Server Not Found' pages. I had to refresh two times like that to get the pages loaded. I searched for solutions online and I had tried to turn off antivirus, disable DNS prefetching, uncheck "Tell web sites I do not want to be tracked", disable IPv6 in Firefox, restart with add-ons disabled but they all failed. I found that there is no problem using Google DNS. Help thanks.
