I need a FireFox feature that allows me to access the typical Cable Modem Gateway Web Manager addresses (192.168.0.1, 192.168.100.1, etc.) even when they have no security certificate.

I have been using a Arris SURFboard SBG6782-AC Wireless Cable Modem Gateway (purchased at TARGET) for over five years without significant issues. About three weeks ago my MoCA network began having issues. I tried to login to the WEB Manager of the Gateway at (192.168.0.1) using FireFox. I got the following FireFox Msg:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to 192.168.0.1. Peer using unsupported version of security protocol.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_VERSION

   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.

This website might not support the TLS 1.2 protocol, which is the minimum version supported by Firefox.

I finally used an old version of "Internet Explorer" which allowed me to bypass the security warning and connect via a direct ethernet port of the gateway. Evidently someone (Spectrum claims they didn't) downloaded a different firmware version into my Gateway. (D30GW-EAGLE-1.5.4.0-GA-10-NOSH) i.e. not the factory original version. The WEB Manager interface is different, password requirements are enhanced, the MoCA feature can't be enabled, and it seems Arris no longer provides a security certificate for the 192.168.0.1 Gateway address.

Considering the complete lack of cooperation of Spectrum and Arris, I think it is unlikely that I will ever be able to recover the factory original firmware; So... How about adding an "exception" feature to FireFox settings to allow me to at least access my "unsecure" Gateway. I really don't want to go back to using IE. By the way, I wrote this on a WIN 8.1 HP laptop. My main machine is a Dell XPS8300 running WIN 10.

Thanks, Robert R. Hurley

This is a moan more than a question. About every six months or so my bookmark sidebar disappears because i have clicked Control and B without meaning to. And that is how to get it back again. Except, I never remember and search all over the page (View, Options etc) without finding how to get it back. So I eventually do a search for how to recover it and find all the archived guides from when other people had the same problem and the same question and ther same frustration. So my moan/quesion is this: why the blankety blank, doesn't Firefox add something into the menu (View or Options or somewhere) that says "Show toolbar permanently". Would save all this frsutration and irritation. The impression I get is that Mozilla thinks we should not want to have the menu on screen all the time. But that is the problem with users! We have our own way of doing things! Please!

When I drag the padlock to my desktop to create a shortcut, only a generic page image appears as the icon. How can I get Firefox to include a UNIQUE icon for each webpage? Other browsers, such as Brave, create an icon that is unique for the website it references. This makes it VERY easy to locate and organize all the shortcuts on my desktop.

The images I have included show the (in my opinion) ugly/useless Firefox icon vs. the aethestic/useful Brave icon.

I keep getting this prompt: "It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies." I have tried so many things and nothing is working. I've had this happen before sometimes at the beginning of a semester; but I have been able to restore it in the past. Now, nothing I do works. Please help. Also, how can we prevent this from happening again? Kaltura is a well known website used by colleges and universities for teaching online classes and playing back video. Why do we have to constantly update the settings? And if so, why are they not working now? Please help. I need to teach my class. Thanks.

Gmail is displaying the "Oops… the system encountered a problem (#001)" error message and will not load my inbox. Other websites in Firefox load fine (including other Google apps like Drive and Calendar), and Gmail works fine in other browsers.

Was Firefox broken last time or something? I thought i have troubles only with my Firefox at my job, but on my private laptop it the same... I was always saving downloaded files on my desktop, but some files i was only reading, like PDF files. Downloading straight into Adobe Reader, not saving on desktop or anywhere else (well, im aware, that files were saved in temp folder). Since, i dont know, few days, two weeks maximum, EVERY PDF file that i want ONLY READ is saving on my desktop (even if i open them in firefox directly). WHY? Its so annoying. I dont want them on my desktop. How to turn it off? Files tht i want to download and save HAVE to be saved on my desktop, files i want to only read cant be saved on desktop.

Firefox bug and Microsoft Outlook web site: Firefox will not allow Windows computer to sleep

After a new email notification sound plays from Microsoft Outlook, https://outlook.office.com/mail/, Firefox has a constant audio stream in use, preventing Windows computers from sleeping.

How to reproduce: 1) In an Admin Command Prompt, execute "powercfg /requests" and verify nothing has a power request, especially "SYSTEM: None." 2) In Firefox, open a tab and login into a Microsoft Outlook account at https://outlook.office.com/mail/. 3) Wait for a new email which triggers an audible chime. 4) In the Admin Command Prompt, verify "powercfg /requests" reports "SYSTEM: [DRIVER] <audio-driver-specific-string> An audio stream is currently in use." Note the computer will never go to sleep due to this request. 5) Close the Firefox tab with Microsoft Outlook. 6) In the Admin Command Prompt, verify "powercfg /requests" has no power requests, especially "SYSTEM: None". Note the computer will sleep after the idle period as expected.

Following a Mac rebuild, I decided to use a different e-mail for my Firefox profile, then tried to move all my bookmarks over. I tried both backup and HTML export from my old profile (on a separate machine, copied to the rebuilt machine) but restore from that file failed ("Unable to process the backup file.") and the HTML import seemingly did nothing - the operation completed without error but nothing changed. Any suggestion on how to get the bookmarks moved over?

Dear Forum,

I have not accessed my Devices since a few updates, I use to be able to rename devices, but in 99.01 I no longer see this as an option? I also have found that sometimes when I add a device is adds the Machine name which I prefer and today I logged out all of my devices and found that it added it and named it a generic name "Firefox 99, Windows 10" Which if grave concern as this could be Any Device. Can someone please let me know how this feature in version 99.01 is suppose to name computers and also can you still rename devices and if so how would you change the name, or if there is a link to documentation on this feature as it has changed. TIA for your help.

I am trying to add my Android phone as a device to Firefox. I initially invoked the code scanner next to the search bar, but got a message saying that the code had to be scanned from within the Firefox app. So I installed the app and followed these instructions entitled "Connect Another Device".

• If you haven't already, install Firefox on your mobile device. • Open Firefox on your mobile device. • Open the menu, tap Settings and select Turn on Sync. • Scan this code:

There is no Turn on Sync option in the Settings menu. I have looked in every menu item that appears even remotely related to syncing with a QR code or adding a device and come up empty.

I found this exact issue in two existing questions, but neither of them had ever been answered, which makes me less than confident that mine will. If there is a Turn on Sync option in Settings, and I just overlooked it, please explain step-by-step where I can find it. If there really is no Turn on Sync option, please provide an alternate method of adding my Android phone.

Thanks.

Hi everyone; Recently my FB account got hacked and I went through hell and back to get it recovered. Funny thing is, it still doesn't work, it did briefly for the initial login just enough time to enable a 2 step challenge for which I selected SMS, NOT any security key via USB. As you can see in the picture, every time when I try to login (or switch in FB from a backup account into the primary), I'll get this message. Now it's stating that it's a Firefox/Mozilla request but it only appeared after my FB was hacked, never before. Could a developer/SME please take a look at this? Current Version 99.0.1 (64-bit)

Cheers, and TIA! T.B.
