I have had it with Firefox playing cop. I really have. I have a site that I visit frequently but these past two updates have now broken my ability to sign into the site at all, even in private mode. All I get is the shield and human icons with the strike-through and the error message on the user name/password field that says: This Connection Is Not Secure. Logins Entered Here Could Be Compromised. Learn More.

I've hit the escape button, tried private windows, done everything I can including resetting which was my last resort and which I hate doing, there's no more whitelist, no way to bypass anything, this is totally unacceptable that I cannot get past this. Firefox is becoming more useless to me as they try to become more and more in control of what I can and cannot do. If there is no override to this, then I have to find a different browser because it's pretty useless to use one browser for some sites and another for other sites, don't you think? So if someone has a workaround for this problem, can you please tell me what it is?

Since your latest so called update a few days ago, all I get is the "Secure Connection Failed - An error occurred during a connection to www.youtube.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR" message when trying to open any pages. Your browser has become less useful than explorer or edge. It's the same message no matter what page is attempted to open.

Recently, my Google Search results have been rendered strangely. Some of the strangeness is 1) lack of Google Settings button in the upper right corner; 2) lack of estimated # of results at the top of the page; 3) lack of # of pp. at the bottom of the page; 4) lack of option to see cached versions of each result. I have cleared cookies and cache. I have run an anti-malware program. I have reiterated the problem in safe mode. What to do next to resolve the problem? (And, what would happen if I'd go to the FF pancake and click under History, "Clear site settings"?)

Version 96.0 on macOS

Started a few days ago. Upon shutting down my Mac at night and turning it on in the morning, I always have to log back in to my Google accounts. This doesn't happen with any other websites and I do not have the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" setting enabled.

If I simply quit Firefox without shutting down my computer, I remain logged in to Google. It's only after a shutdown that I get logged off.

Ever since my Firefox application was updated to 96, the application has become unstable. The only way I can load it is be typing Firefox =P on my terminal, and picking a profile. The usual approach produces a response that "Firefox" can't find my profile. After attempting to fix this for two days, my links, logins, bookmarks, are available sometimes or never.

The 96 version was a big mistake and never should have been installed on my computer, which is no connection to an "enterprise".

How can I recover a stable non-enterprise related version of Firefox?

I am experiencing this issue ONLY in Firefox, not in Edge or Chrome. Thus, it tells me it's not my Windows security settings or my antivirus security settings. The issue is with the website ancestry.com and ONLY in one specific section: When I want to create a story and add it to an ancestor's profile page. It doesn't matter if I copy and paste something or if I just enter text manually. When I try to submit it I receive an Access denied error 21 message saying access is blocked by security settings. Furthermore, the stories I have already added to ancestor's profile pages are no longer visible on Firefox - there's just a blank white screen. However, again, they are readily visible in both Edge and Chrome, which again tells me this is not a Windows setting or an antivirus setting or even a firewall setting, but a Firefox setting.

For the life of me, I cannot figure this out. I've tried to google Access denied error 21 but I get absolutely no results. I've tinkered with my security settings in Firefox and nothing helps. I've cleared cache and cookies over and over again. I've even gone so far as to disable both my firewall and antivirus program temporarily and again, no difference.

I like to research in Firefox, but with all the new changes to layout and now this problem, I'm really getting fed up. Any help with this would be very much appreciated.

Good day,

Really happy to see that mozilla is tightening up security. But unfortunately, I can't enroll into Two-Step Authentication everytime I enter code it's not being accepted. I tried multiple android apps of those codes and non of them work for me.

Because of that, I lost access to addons.mozilla.com account, because system doesn't let me in without 2step auth enabled.

Any chance I can use yubikey's intead of those auth apps? or anything else I can do?

I didn't ask for this change, and I don't want it. Black on white is hard on my eyes to read.

I've already checked around the forums and nothing that other posters have suggested works to change it back. Yes, I use a custom theme and I'm not going to change it to "white". I didn't make any changes , firefox did.

OS Windows 10 updated (Japanese) Forefox 96.0 64-bit

When I use Firefox browser: During online shopping I got to fill in personal details and mode of payment details. After filling all details and when click to proceed for payment mostly error appears and some time just hanged. Today's experience: On a website error appeared but in my order history the order was recorded means I ordered the same thing four times. But the Online shop was good so they did not charge. Even in safe mode I faced the same problem.

Then I talked with the credit card company after checking they confirmed there is not any problem at their end. Therefore, I used MS Edge without any problem smoothly I proceeded and placed an order.

I shall be thankful if some one enlighten me or share your thoughts. Thank you.

I added a plugin that enabled privacy.clearonshutdown for a number of settings and I have lost my Cache and History. Is there a way for me to restore that data? I haven't restarted my computer yet.

I was looking at other options: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1290163 and apparently there is an index.dat thing I could use as well, but I can't find it. I really can't afford to lose yet more data after my last mistake.

So I have been having this issue lately where my computer just won't respond, and the only thing I have to fix it with my limited skills is to force the computer to power off and restart it. Unfortunately, this tends to result in me losing my tabs and having to find them all over again in Firefox. Usually it's not a big deal, as it's just a few tabs missing, and I can just remember what I need. This time, however, I've lost a weeks worth of tabs, and it was a very busy week. I can't remember what tabs I had open, and the few things I've tried to get them back, are not working.

I have, unfortunately, already tried restarting my computer, which inevitably led to firefox being closed and reopened, and though I have tried to find my previous session data in the profiles information on my computer, it only has this session that is currently missing a week of work, and the session from the week previous. I am very distressed right now, not gonna lie.

This latest update has broken so many websites for me. I can't see areas of most of the websites I visit, getting a "You are not connected securely to this site" notice even though there's a certificate when I check and it's always for a different reason. One unsecure image or one unsecure content warning or something along those lines and it's driving me nuts! I can't use a private window because I can't sign into any sites with the private window. All I get is the spinning, working on it thingy.

There was a place where I could whitelist sites to override this problem but now I can't find it and if I can't do something about this, will have to use a different browser, which I don't want to do. Can someone give me an idea here on what to do to bypass this? I've trusted these sites for years. They didn't just all go rogue the minute this update came through!

I'm on Windows 10

Firefox now requires a refresh to use every time it's opened. If I don't it keeps displaying that every page I attempt to go to has an expired https. It requests that I contact the owner to notify them of the problem and to try again. It does not connect to any webpage without a refresh. I've attempted troubleshooting mode and without a refresh, it still does not work. The refresh only lasts for about 10-15 minutes before another is required. All extensions are removed and even just attempting to go to google.com results in the same problem.
