How to I disable the splash window "shot copied"?

I like the screenshot tool, just that annoying window. Can we turn it off?

The Secure Connection Failed message (The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified) is now effectively blocking access to more sites than it allows access to. I understand the reasons for introducing this measure but since there's evidently such a vast number of sites that don't use the recommended tls protocols Firefox has now made itself unusable. I've spent the day switching over to Edge - not because I want to but because I find myself shut out of practically every other site I try to access with Firefox. It is not my responsibility to inform the owners of all the world's sites that they should update their security to fall into line with Mozilla's requirements. I do not have the power to do this. All I - and every other Firefox user - can do is change my browser. Please restore Firefox to a workable, usable state.

Have used this workaround before. Seems like might have to edit the scripe tho. I have a working version in Win10, but not working in Win 7. We miss our favorite user friendly configureable browsers and would trade a little speed for a FF Flex version as opposed to current unfrindly FF Fast ver. Thanks for all the great FF browsers of the past

I have been using using the "Email a link to this page" feature for a long time (previously it was Share page feature I believe) and have correctly setup the mailto: in preferences to use Yahoo Mail. Recently in Firefox 62, the feature now only starts up the Compose mail function for Yahoo Mail but the message is blank. Previously it had automatically inserted the Subject with page title and body with page url.

I've tested in both Linux and Windows, with all add-ons disabled and the behavior is the same.

I had screen tearing and graphical glitches when browsing. [layers.acceleration.force-enabled = true] solved screen tearing, but I still had some graphical glitches from time to time which now seem to have been fixed with [layers.force-active = true].

Could this be a working configuration on the long term? Currently it is running like a charm...

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 and had already turned off hardware acceleration and smooth scrolling without the desired results before trying the above-mentioned things. I also played around with the xorg.config.d settings of the OS...

Best regards Mike

Suddenly today when I opened Firefox, the Top Sites section on my new tab page had only blank icons. I previously had several pinned sites. I'm also unable to manually add any top sites. If I try to add a new top site, and enter a name and URL, when I click the "Add" button, nothing happens. No new site is added. I have uninstalled, rebooted, and reinstalled Firefox several times with no success. I also went into about:Config and saw that for the item browser.newtabpage.pinned, the value contains all the URLs for my pinned sites. They're just not appearing on my new tab page and I'm no longer able to manually add any top sites. Also, none of the sites I visit now show up, they're all just blank icons. I'm using Firefox version 62.0.

When I click the + sign in my "tab bar" to open up a new tab, an automated url address automatically populates the address bar. It never did this in the past. In the past, I would click the + sign; and then I could immediately begin typing the url I wanted in the address bar. Now I have to first delete the autopopulated address. How to I permanently remove this autopopulation process so that when I click the + tab I get a new tab with an "empty" address area?

Google.com is my homepage in Firefox 62.0.2 (64-bit) It takes forever to load. I can go load Chrome where Google is also my homepage, come back to Firefox and still be waiting for Google to load.

When I login to gmail, I type my password and wait and wait and wait and then I get sent back to the login page and have to type my password again.

I need to speed this up. I prefer Firefox over Chrome, but Chrome is faster to use.

I have lost or deleted a folder in my bookmarks menu. Not the star menu but the drop down under the words Bookmarks Menu on the toolbar. Since it is different, going back to restore does not help. Is there a way to get this very important folder back and is there a way to combine the two lists for the future so I would then be using the star drop down? Thank you.
