I have just installed a new modem - Motorola SB6121 - comcast activation process has corrupted most of my bookmarks, and redirects me to the activation site.

I have completed the activation process twice now, once with Comcast on the line. What happens is many of my bookmarks refuse to load, and I get the message "firefox has prevented from redirect.." When I press "allow", I am taken back to the Comcast activation site.

If I do a search for the bookmark - say "Firefox", and the search results come up - when I click on the link for "Firefox" I am taken back to the "Firefox has prevented ..." message, and "allow" takes me to the Comcast activation site.

Trying the same process with internet explorer works fine, except I do not have the bookmarks in internet explorer, and wish to continue to use Firefox, but at present it is all but unuseable.

The company that I work with uses a company web that is hosted by a SBS 2008 Server. I can access the companyweb with chrome or safari, but Firefox does not work. The other two come up with a white screen and then a authentication box comes down to ask for your credentials. Firefox does not do this. It just has a white screen. It is not just my computer that is doing this. It seems to be all Macs that have Firefox. What is also weird is that Firefox for Windows works fine.

This problem came right out of the blue. Until now I have had no problem accessing the verizon website (www.verizon.com) to get at my email. Now, it does not connect. The URL goes from "www.verizon.com" to "fiostrending.verizon.com". The tab seems to be cycling (very quickly and continuously) between "connecting" and "fiostrending.verizon.com. I have done the following to no avail: 1). started Firefox (currently using v.39.0) without addons; 2). backed off Firefox V.39 to V. 38; 3). cleared cache. Virus check (via Vipre) is clean.

Verizon was contacted and they said it is a Firefox problem. I verified this by successfully accessing "www.verizon.com" via IE 11 (v 11.0.9600.17843). I am at a loss. Any help would be appreciated. Using Windows 7, SP 1, 64 Bit OS.

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.

Earlier versions of FF saved passwords just fine, but for the past couple of updates that feature has stopped working. I have tried the steps shown in the "passwords not saved" FAQ, even changed my history settings from Custom to always save. No matter. Does not do passwords or even ask me. All of the passwords that had been in my profile for the past couple of years are no longer visible in the "show saved" option window. Do I have to uninstall Firefox, and start over?????

Statement on Firefox 33 and self-signed certificates

Dear Mozilla,

Your decision to drop support for self-signed certificates is causing problems all around in LANs, VPNs, and domain networks both home and corporate which employ SSL but use self-signed certs. Despite it being understanding that it is generally ill-advised to access sites with such problems, further deciding that this minority of exceptions should be abandoned altogether in a world web full of so many shades of grey and complex setups is not a responsible decision.

Please implement methods for us to be able to coexist with these updates, as suddenly dropping support for the plenthora of routers, domains, websites and other sources using such a setup, many of which cannot be quickly updated or even at all, is a big problem.

The internet engineering taskforce has not issued any such directives, nor have broader plans to drop support for self-signed certificates been announced. In the lack of a transitioning climate away from this setup or any plans to do so, Mozilla has unilaterally decided to remove support.

Please remember that you have a large userbase and thus a responsibility to keep available means of access that are in common use by the world. Self-signed certificates still very much play a role in the ecosystem, and they will continue to exist for as long as there is a need for encryption on intranets.

Thank you!

Cannot use any search engine in FF 40.0.3 on Macbook Pro model 9,2 with OS 10.8.5. Receive "Unable to connect" message when attempting to use a search engine. Websites other than Mozilla and search engines connect fine. FireFox 40.0.3 on a different Mac works fine with no problems.

In addition, I cannot access the FF "Get Add-Ons" page or the Mozilla home page. Search engines will not connect from either the search bar or their home page. Problem just started. I had previously updated to, and have been using, FF 40.0.3 without problem when it was issued. Attempted solutions have included FF refresh, run FF in safe mode, run with all plug-ins disabled, disabled hardware graphics acceleration. None of these corrected the problem.

I've started getting a 400/Bad Request errors on various sites. I'm running FF 41.0. I cleared my cache/cookies, and it helped a little but still having issues. Some sites that don't work will work if you type the site differently. Some examples:

Doesn't work: www.youtube.com/ Works: https://www.youtube.com/

About two weeks ago, whenever I visited the following site, FF gave me a "The connection was reset The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading..." error message.: http://adp.library.ucsb.edu/index.php Ever since, I've been able to access it through IE. Today the same problem occurred with this site, which I can also access thru IE: http://doo-wop.blogg.org/

I cleared all my history and cookies, but the problem continues. I am using Windows 7, and was using FF 40.0.3. I just updated to FF 41.0, restarted FF, but find the sites still give the same "connection reset" error message.

Thanks for any help, Marc

The WPA-PSK network key on my Netgear router was extremely complex, and typing it into my Kindle when I wanted to buy a book was a nightmare! So I changed the key to something I could manage, typed it in my Kindle, and now Kindle works fine - no problem with it. Snag is the computer won't connect now! I have to plug that yellow cable into the router and the computer to get on the internet. (You can tell how computer savvy I am !!!) Can somebody help me please?

I am getting the "Untrusted Connection" error message for a site I visit daily with the only option being "Get me out of here!". I am using Firefox version 39.0 and have Windows 8.1. I found a thread telling how to fix this problem by deleting the cert8.db file. I have used this method previously and it worked then but it didn't this time. Tried looking elsewhere for help but all I seen was talking about the time/date being off. Mine are bother correct however. Any help would be very appreciated.

Every day around 9:30 PM, browsing the web becomes impossible. nearly every site I visit brings up a This Connection Is Untrusted page. I have tried using different browsers and Different Devices. Even my 3DS doesn't work. This has lead me to believe that the problem is either with the modem or my service provider. I checked the certificate of Google via chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.xul, and it read ISSUED TO Common Name (CN) security.frontier.com Organization (O) security.frontier.com and when I checked it now, it reads ISSUED TO Common Name (CN) www.google.com Organization (O) Google Inc I don't know what fixes this problem since the problem stops at different times. It started around when I installed AVG, so I tried uninstalling it, but the problem didn't stop. While I'm fairly certain the problem isn't related to Firefox, this is one of the sites that I am able to visit when this problem occurs. I have tried manually adding the exception so I could bypass the Untrusted Connection page, but the page never loads and the next time it happens, the page is there again anyway.
