I can't use YouTube with Firefox on Mac. When I open YouTube, it acts like it is stuck and keeps reloading a previous page, over and over every 3 seconds so I can't click on anything. Strange. Yes, I cleared the Cache and it didn't help. I had an old mac and had the same problem and my new mac was just purchased this year. Any ideas?

I am getting an error message at the bottom of the page when I use Firefox. It says Mozilla Firefox seems slow... to... start. And wants me to click on a button to find out how to speed it up. Is this genuine and from Mozilla or is it a scam? I know I am probably sounding a bit paranoid but I am really careful these days. Cheers, Dave

Hello,

I trust my email finds you well.

On two occasions recently I googled something and when I click on the page I wish to visit, a popup appears with celebrations raining from the top of the screen and then a survey follows.

Please see the images I uploaded here.

Is this a virus / malware or legit or a popup that got past ad-block plus?

Looking forward to hearing from you. Schalk

Hi, I always use Firefox.

I wonder why Microsoft Edge which was born later than Firefox supports Touch Bar completely, on the other hand Firefox which was born so long before Edge doesn't support Touch Bar completely?

TouchBar on Firefox show static buttons only. It's so stupid, I think.

The features of Media Scrubber and going to registered site on top sites can be only operated on Touch Bar, but going to previous/forward page, opening new tab, and reloading page is also available on keyboard shortcut.

I think it is meaningless that supports only these features that can be operated by keyboard. It is worth supporting features that can be only operated by TouchBar such as Media Scrubber.


I want Mozilla to support these feature of Touch Bar like Media Scrubber completely because I love Firefox.

Hello,

I'm a developper on the "Rainbow" application, when I try to call a device in Webrtc firefox crashes. So, this issue also exists in safe mode This bug doesn't exist on chrome The id : b73b7934-bfe8-4734-8f16-372180200529

So, I don't know in my code where the issue comes from, and if I activate the debug, with breakpoints and step by step, I don't reproduce the issue.

So, can you help me to know how to find the issue (if the bug is in my side)

thanks

best regards

Hi,

I had an second email address added to my account.

I removed it, because I want a second account for this address.

But this is not possible.

If I want to create a new account through the firefox interface, it seems like it is still connected to my old account. If I want to initiate a password reset, this is not possible.

What can I do?

I'm having issues with the WIX ADI not opening for my website and redirecting me to the create new web page screen. Whenever I try to open the ADI, the following appears in the console: https://pastebin.com/UMQhN8aX

Here's a video of what's happening: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1-s-b0U94pCqtPnV0EqOEE9pRbBopeYs5

I've tried with a fresh version of Firefox and have tried Catalina 10.15.4, Windows 10, and Windows 7.

I've contacted WIX support and they've been very unhelpful and told me to refer to browser support. The functionality works fine in Chrome.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am trying to access a website I use for work and needed to add a certificate in the keychain (I'm on a Mac). It works fine on Chrome but since I switched to Firefox (for another website that is buggy on Chrome) I can't access it. My company doesn't support Mac so no help there. Here's my error message:

An error occurred during a connection to remotegw2-dhhs.ne.gov. SSL peer was unable to negotiate an acceptable set of security parameters.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE_ALERT

I tried to import the certificate from my keychain but it's not visible there as an acceptable file. I have no idea what to do. Not just a liddlelost, but reallylost. Thanks!

I've noticed that searches retain information about my previous searches after I close the browser; 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' setting is selected. My tests seem to point to a security loophole with Cached Web Content.

Question: how can I ensure privacy settings are honored, or, if there is a loophole, how can I get Firefox to also clear Cached Web Content on close?

In my repeated test cases, I used bing to search for '5/8 irrigation kit', then closed the browser and reopened. Cookies and site data show 0 bytes (see attached images), Cached Web Content show something greater than 0.

Next, I go to bing.com/news, scroll through stories, and see an advert for an irrigation kit as one of the sponsored adverts.

As a further test after the original search, I try the following to see if I was being track another way, with the same resulting sponsored advert showing:

  • Restarted laptop
  • Restarted ONT (to get a new IP) and wifi

The following 2 scenarios seemed to resolve the issue after the original search and seeing the same resulting sponsored advert:

  • Turned on VPN
  • Cleared Cached Web Content

Clearing Cached Web Content seems to be the solution, and a possible privacy loophole. Cached Web Content is not part of the auto-delete-at-close feature.

Oddly, I haven't been able to consistently replicate the above starting with the VPN on and having it on through the tests. It sometimes shows the same resulting sponsored advert, and sometimes not.

I tried to replicate this with Safari. It's auto-delete feature at close and similar privacy setting seems to work according to what I would expect with the same test scenario; which is, no previous search-informed sponsored advert.

Details:

  • Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit)
  • Firefox privacy settings shown in attached images
  • MacBook Air 2019
  • macOS Catalina Version 10.15.4
  • Verizon Fios
