The two arrow buttons, top left and right, that move the tabs backwards and forwards jump a large amount of tabs after they have been pressed two or three times. is there a way to slow that down please? Either an addon or via the about:config would be fine

Am I right in thinking that this is the config that needs to be lowered from its current setting of 7?

accessibility.tabfocus;7

Thanks

Windows just performed an update 6/12/2019 and my bookmarks are gone. Does Firefox do backups or was I suppose to be doing it?

Is all hope lost? I assumed Firefox performed backups for bookmarks. Was I suppose to do this? Microsoft forced an update on my computer and Firefox bookmarks are gone… (read more)

Is all hope lost? I assumed Firefox performed backups for bookmarks. Was I suppose to do this? Microsoft forced an update on my computer and Firefox bookmarks are gone. Other apps are in a similar condition.

Hello,

For at least a week or two now, my Firefox has been unable to update. So yesterday I tried to actually download a copy of Firefox, and when I tried to connect to the download page, I received this error.

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to download.mozilla.org. The server uses key pinning (HPKP) but no trusted certificate chain could be constructed that matches the pinset. Key pinning violations cannot be overridden. Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_KEY_PINNING_FAILURE

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

I tried using Firefox, Edge, and Chrome to download Firefox and none of them worked. Chrome provides a little more information:

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" This server could not prove that it is download.mozilla.org; its security certificate is from *.demandbase.com. This may be caused by a misconfiguration or an attacker intercepting your connection. """""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

So, out of desperation, I asked a friend (I live in New Jersey, he is relatively close to me and also lives in New Jersey) if he could download Firefox and he had no trouble. At this point I am forced to assume that either my internet service provider (Optimum) or something else is interfering with my connection and I am unsure what to do about it.

Has anyone experienced this kind of problem before?

I received a notification to update the Flash Player on Firefox. It doesn't look official so I did not click install. The manner in which it behaved after I tried to get rid of it confirms my suspicion that it's a scam. Upon clicking the hyperlink that says "Do not show this notification again" a banner appeared at the top left of the click asking me to allow the update. I clicked no but it continued to appear. In fact, it appeared multiple times until closing Firefox thru the task manager. However, when I opened Firefox afterwards the same prompt to upgrade Flash appeared right after opening Firefox. I can't stop this so I have stopped using Firefox. I checked the regular Firefox upgrade dialog thru about Firefox. It upgraded Firefox to version 67.0.2 with no Flash player update Then I ran a Malwarebytes scan. The result was "no threats detected." Have other users faced this problem? What should I do?
