Hi

For two days I've been searching on the web and in here with no luck.

Initially as Facebook is loading ... I can see the video for a brief second, then its turns grey with the message "Sorry, we're having trouble with playing this video."

Appears to only be a problem on Facebook and only in FF (chrome facebook videos work fine)

Using

FF 81.0 (64-Bit) Windows 10 Version 2004

Tried with all addon's disabled. Tried with anti virus disabled

Tried adding "Flash Video Player for Facebook" addon

Videos all work and play in chrome.

What I believe to be a mozilla site "https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/" has all the older FF versions but when I downloaded the Mac OS version 81.0 which is the en-US version it does not have the new credit card feature and it also does not have D.O.H. active by default.

The sha256 hash is c4975a1a73dd1976e1f58cf5822921d25f2fb4a0e092897037e039d7ac6b8a67

It should be en-US but it does not have the new credit card feature in the menu. Why? Is FTP site no longer valid?

Some of well known sites such as "drive.google.com" & "mail.yahoo.com" is resulting in "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue page" in Firefox. They are opening just fine in other browsers.

This issue has cropped up since past week in Firefox. Not sure what is the root cause behind the problem. I have tried re-installing Firefox, but still no change.

I have checked the certificates of those sites, and they are seems to be in order. I mean other browsers are able to open without issue, then why Firefox is not opening them for me?

Please let me know if this issue can be fixed in Firefox.

Hi When I log out of Firefox and then log in again the settings that I want have changed themselves. I want the following settings to remain but they don't.

Logins and Passwords Ask to save logins and passwords for websites Autofill logins and passwords Save History

All the logins and passwords that I want to keep appear in the list and most of the websites still log in as normal BUT there are a couple who insist I re-enter username and password and I don't want to keep having to do this. I have tried clearing all cookies and saved log ins for the problem websites and then re entered them after ticking the login/password option and it works fine. However when I end Firefox and then log in again these websites then insist I re enter everything. I have even deleted version 81 and managed to re-install an earlier version but that still fails.

Hi,

Ever since upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on both my laptop and PC, I've had trouble accessing Steam's websites due to bad certificate domains. I've included a screencap of the error message.

I tried contacting Steam about this problem, since its only on their websites the problem is. They told me that there was no error on their side, and that they suspect that I don't have an "up-to-date trusted root authority" stored. I don't know what that is, and had no luck contacting Windows about the problem. So far I haven't seen this problem appear anywhere I've looked for help, so I am trying posting myself here.

I have already tried: - Reinstalling the certificate automatically for the Steam.exe file - Flushing DNS config // Also tried connecting through Google's DNS server - Repairing Steam install (in case the problem came from the program) - Permanently disabling VPN software and AntiVirus programs from interfering with anything Steam-related - Resyncronizing time on the PC (almost the only solution I could find on the web, still didn't work)

I hope someone can help me.

Is this a real action of FIREFOX or is it a virus?

Beginning about a week or so ago, I can no longer read pages from the Guardian. The page loads correctly but it has no scroll bar and so I can't read the article. I can *see* the entire article by shrinking the text, so I know it is there. For example, this page:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/sep/23/california-cars-electric-vehicles-gavin-newsom-climate-change

is one that doesn't scroll [just to be clear: none do these days, but i just picked one, double checked that it couldn't scroll and posted it here]. I've looked at the page with ChrEdge and it renders [and scrolls] without a problem.

I haven't run into this problem with any other websites, so I dunno what's going wrong.

Spell check has long been a problem for me. It sometimes works, but most of the time it is not working, or is delayed by several minutes. The option to do spell checking is on. And the fact that it sometimes works indicates that the dictionary is present. This problems has been present for several releases. I am currently on 80.0.1

I know that before computers were common, a typist really strove to be accurate. But now you go for speed, and not accuracy at all. So, my messages tend to have a lot of errors. I cringe when I think of how many messages I typed before I realized that spell check was only occasionally working.

My work-around is to type what I need into my word processor, and then copy/paste into the web site where I want the text.

I'm trying to browse Reverb.com, and when I click on an item I want to look at, firefox opens in a new tab. This just started today after updating the Facebook Container add-on, and even after disabling the add on, the problem persists. I completely exited out of firefox and got back on, and Reverb is doing the same thing still. I don't want new tabs to keep opening every time I click on a new item, but to just take me to that page like normal.

I can't find anything in the options for firefox like keybinding or anything, and none of the other settings seem like they would address this issue.

Thanks for any and all help.
