This is not a simple question to ask and is not very easy to explain. But I shall try.

I am running a program suite called "Node-Red" on another machine. Access is done via the "web". (http). Usually you just enter the IP address and you are into the edit screen. This is obviously not a good idea on a machine exposed to the net. So, you activate security settings. (See a bit later)

I am using Firefox as my main browser and I have activated security settings in Node-Red. Subsequently I can't log in. BUT! Other browsers can. (From other people) I have tried it and seen it once work. Sorry but that's all I have at this time. The information attached about my system is unedited, because as I said: I don't know what is needed at this stage.

I can get the "name" entered, but every time I click on the Password field, the cursor jumps back to the name field.

(Documents for what I am doing) https://nodered.org/docs/security.html

See attached image for what I see in FF. Please forgive the red arrows. I was talking to the Node-Red people about it also. "Luckily" someone else is having problems when using FireFox. But they can if they use another browser - as stated.

I don't know exactly what information (at this time) is needed. Alas it may require someone in here to install Node-Red and try it them selves.

I also appreciate that is a big ask. But it would seem I am not the only person with this problem and someone else has recently posted that they have the same problem.


What further complicated me asking here is I have a couple of other programs installed for password management and I had to go through the process of eliminating them.


So I am now at the point where it is pointing to FireFox and it not playing the game.


Thanks in advance for any help in resolving the problem.

I hope something can help me, because I don’t’ know what to do.

I check my hotmail account with Firefox, never had any trouble. But, after UI changed with hotmail account a month or two back, I’ve been having trouble signing it with Firefox, sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t. During this time, sometimes it would let me in and sometimes it won’t let me check at all.

I just keep getting this error: "Something went wrong and we can't sign you in right now. Please try again later."

  • BTW: Server status for hotmail is always 'green, no problems detected' when I get this error, so that makes me more confused on what's going on.*

That’s in Firefox, I then tried Firefox in safe mode (add-ons disabled) still same error.

I then tried restarting my PC, clearing catch/cookies, nothing seamed to matter and I have latest version of Firefox.

But, oddly (or not) when I try to sign in with IE, it logs me in just fine.

  • I also tried Chrome, I can log into my hotmail account just fine also.*

Anyone else having trouble with there hotmail account + Firefox?


I haven’t added/removed any programs for a while, just updated flash player/adobe/etc, you know, the usual stuff.

All screenshots I took are attached, details of when are in file name.

  • add images feature on creating page, is not working for me, had to do this way, sorry*

I'm using latest version of Firefox v40.03 on my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS, no other sites I have this trouble, can someone please help me?

I did send a question to the tech people at Microsoft, but only got 3 replies from them: 1 - ‘Thank you for contacting us', 2 - ‘Can you install/run this program FiddlerCap and send us the results?’ 3 - ‘We are going to send you over to this other department instead, you’ll hear from them soon…'

That was ~5 days ago. Nothing so far from them.

  • I don’t’ know what FiddlerCap was, I think it’s something to test the https or something, but got these odd errors when running it*

I really love Firefox have been a fan since v3 (I think, long ago), if anyone has any idea please tell me, if you need any info or something , ask and I will get it!

I don’t know if it’s related but I also got once or twice, an odd secure connection error, but I only got it a few times, so I don’t know if it’s related to this or not.

Error I got: “…Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to sc.imp.live.com. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). (Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap)

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 changing the line “security.tls.version.fallback-limit” to 1 (originally was 3) instead, but restart PC/clear cookies, restart Firefox, nothing, no error, but still no hotmail access with Firefox.

Today, I have been having massive problems loading the site at www.theguardian.com/uk.

The symptoms vary from server disconnected error, to pages loading slowly or incompletely.

As far as I can see, the problem only happens on the one site, Guardian. I have cleared both cache and cookies, to no effect. I have tried restarting Firefox in safe mode, without addons, to no effect.

I don't have the problem on other sites. I don't have the problem if I use Chrome browser instead. I don't have any Nvidia software installed (there is another thread about FF v.43 and Nvidia which seems to have the same symptoms).

Unfortunately, that is about the limit of my techie ability.

If anyone has any suggestions what else I can try, I would be very grateful.

I've started getting a 400/Bad Request errors on various sites. I'm running FF 41.0. I cleared my cache/cookies, and it helped a little but still having issues. Some sites that don't work will work if you type the site differently. Some examples:

6:43 PM 4/24/2015 Compatible issues firefox v37.0.2 with att yahoo mail

Hello: this is my first post,hope I am doing it properly. I am using W7pro OS and ATT DSL 3.0Mbps dl I noticed this week that I was unable to save attachments from my ATT Yahoo mail I could view them but no choice as to ware to save them--only choice (save to my comp.)But no ware to be found. I reinstalled v 36.0.4-preventing auto upgrade-But still had same problem. At this point contacted ATT support supervisor-we spent about 4hr working on problem--He was using your v 31.5.0--and had no problem accessing and saving attachments using remolt access on my comp. We also found using my comp.FF v 36.0.4 & v 37.0.2 browser,that we could without any problems access an save attachments--AOL mail-- & mail2web.--& IE--Even when forwarding inaccessible mail to above sites.

He informed me that (ATT mail Yahoo)only uses resources to make them compatible with--Google IE & Chrome &Apple? (basically he was saying,that they would NOT commit resources to FF--any version)BUT he was not allowed to commit.


PS: The last time I know it worked ok was 3-18-15 I have 3 comp.2 wxp pro 1 w7 pro the same problem on all 3--so feel confident not OS related-but compatible problems with FF & yahoo mail.

The ATT support supervisor-was unable to determined the date they may have made changes on their site.without extensive research-which we decided wasn't worth the effort as they wouldn't look in to it.

I hope someone or FF will be able find a workaround-as I do not want to use the browsers they suggest. I LOVE FF.

Thank You Gary

Every day around 9:30 PM, browsing the web becomes impossible. nearly every site I visit brings up a This Connection Is Untrusted page. I have tried using different browsers and Different Devices. Even my 3DS doesn't work. This has lead me to believe that the problem is either with the modem or my service provider. I checked the certificate of Google via chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.xul, and it read ISSUED TO Common Name (CN) security.frontier.com Organization (O) security.frontier.com and when I checked it now, it reads ISSUED TO Common Name (CN) www.google.com Organization (O) Google Inc I don't know what fixes this problem since the problem stops at different times. It started around when I installed AVG, so I tried uninstalling it, but the problem didn't stop. While I'm fairly certain the problem isn't related to Firefox, this is one of the sites that I am able to visit when this problem occurs. I have tried manually adding the exception so I could bypass the Untrusted Connection page, but the page never loads and the next time it happens, the page is there again anyway.

For the past few weeks, I've been unable to log into my Pinterest account. I use Firefox as my primary browser. I've gone back and forth with Pinterest tech support, to no avail, and they sent me here. <eye roll> I've tried all the easy things...deleting cache and cookies, trying in safe mode, trying with another browser, making sure the browser is up to date, etc. Pinterest won't let me log in on IE or Chrome either, on this computer; yet on my Windows Surface tablet, I can log in with no trouble.

Here's the error message I get: The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I didn't add any software right before this happened. I have always been able to get into Pinterest with no trouble, up till now. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Elizabeth

For this web site: http://ulsterhabitat.org/ in the post Ulster Habitat News (facebook) (third image, first small one), the link to the facebook page will only open if: I right click on it and choose "open in new tab" (It does not matter if I give focus to the new tab or not), then I left click on the link and it works. If I left click on the link first, nothing happens. (link says "Ulster Habitat Facebook").

What I have done: run in safe mode, refreshed Firefox, reinstalled Firefox 43.0.3 (with all profile data removed - as clean as could be) with no extensions, altered settings or add-ons. Behavior is always the same.

System is Windows 7 Pro, latest up-to-date version, but Firefox also does this on a W7 Home system, and a W10 Home system, both with latest Firefox. No Firefox extensions or add-ons on the W10 machine.

Bonus: Chrome 47.0.2526.106 does not do this (it opens the link immediately). IE 11.0.26 does just what Firefox does. It would seem to me that the link should either work or not work, but not depend on opening in a new tab first. Fascinated by this. Thank you. Tim

Thanks.


Server not found

Firefox can't find the server at money.cnn.com.

   Check the address for typing errors such as ww.example.com instead of www.example.com
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

In November 2017 a moderator for the firefox.mozilla newsgroups put me on the naughty step for comments about the new incarnation of Firefox. (Quantum).

It's now over a year later and I'm still on the naughty step, and though I have attempted to contact the moderator in question, the addresses used all failed... Or I'm being ignored.

A step tooooo far was taken today when the moderator also put my cousin on the proscribed list, who's been kind enough to post occasional queries I've had about Fx.

Having been contacted by cousin today, informing that said Moderator has now put a blanket ban on the ISP (By address) who supplies internet connection for various family members.

How is this problem to be resolved?

I keep three profiles on my Network Attached Server (ReadyNAS Ultra 4), where they get backed up every night. Firefox v32 opens fine on my older Ubuntu 12.04LTS box and my even older WinXP box.

My newer Ubuntu 14.04LTS machine came with Firefox v35 (if I recall correctly). It wouldn't open my profiles. I upgraded to v37. It still will not open any of the three profiles on the server. FF will start only if I use a locally-stored profile. I can open them on a VMWare virtual WindowsXP machine on this box (again, v32), but not natively in Ubuntu. I get the message:

Firefox cannot use the profile "Private" because it is in use.

I don't know if this is a bug with v35+ or something peculiar about my install of Ubuntu 14.04. Chrome works fine, and I have no other problems with the files on the server. If it were a permissions issue, I don't think it would work on my 12.04 box.

Please help. I'd like to use Firefox again someday.
