I have uninstalled Firefox 40, deleted the profiles folder, reinstalled Firefox, restored Firefox 40 and profiles from a backup and I am still getting this message. I even downgraded to a previous version and restored the profiles for that version and still this nasty error crops up on anything I try to do. I cannot find any info on where other files files are stored that I am not restoring or changing that are still lingering. I have never seen anything like this.This is after spending 3 weeks completely updating and changing Firefox to suit my needs and dumping Chrome,this is what I get. It appears I will have to move back to chrome as I need a browser that works. I have tried everything I can find regarding this to no avail. I am really upset over this especially after all the time spent moving from Chrome to Firefox. I really need an answer or I will have to delete Firefox and move back to Chrome as much as I hate to do that. It still works!! Anyone have an answer for this? Is their no one at Mozilla to help with this? Help!

Why is the mozilla.org site untrusted? "You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.mozilla.org, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure."

Just downloaded firefox for mac and get their own server as a security warning.....not very promising.

This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.mozilla.org, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Trying to get my mom's Mac back online. The Safari browser on her OSX 10.7 machine would not work with Google Mail last year after they made some upgrades. We installed Firefox and she could get her mail. It has been offline for several months due to unrelated issues. Today it accessed Gmail. I then downloaded Avast free edition for Mac. After that Firefox gives an invalid certificate error on every page - Google.com, even Mozilla.com. I have closed Avast but the problem seems to be in Mozilla. I thought it might need updating so I attempted to download the update. Still giving this error. I disabled the Avast add-on to Firefox. Still does it. The current version is 43.0.3 now, after restarting it. It was updated from ver 39.0.

At wit's end. Is this thing just too old?

After updating from 58.0.1 to 58.0.2 (both 64 bit) this morning, pages are painfully slow to load, as are searches. If I can find a copy of 58.0.1, can I safely removed 58.0.2 and then install 58.0.1. Or does anyone have a fix for this slowness? By slow I mean 10 or more seconds for pages to load that were almost instantaneous before.

Hello- ever since computer was updated to Firefox 60.2.0 esr, I have not been able to find but about 5-total add-ons and extensions. I had about 15- or so before updating Firefox. Where would I find them?

 I just received a message from my Avast Free Anti-Virus that said I should remove a bad reputation add-on I never heard of & I surely could not find it using the 4- horizontal bars at the top right of the Browser.  

Thanks!

Avast wanted to removed an Addon it didn't like so I allowed it to get rid of it. But Avast Destroyed My Previous Session! How Do I Get it Back? I clicked on 'Restore All Windows' but all I got was a bunch of new windows and on only one Window of about 8 that are now lost or gone. Months to build... now if I can't restore these, it will take weeks or a month or more to build back what I had!

A few days ago avg gave a warning of two files that could be malicious. The files were deleted. Firefox stopped working for a while till I changed a couple of setting in about:config. Firefox started to work but gmail has not, even though I am already signed in. Other google services are running fine. I have refreshed, reloaded firefox and looked on the mozilla support pages for answers but to no avail. Gmail works on internet explorer.
