Hi, I am an experienced firefox user for more than 2-3 years. But i recently need NPAPI plugins to do certain works. I learned that i need 32 bit to do that. I already have 64 bit.

When trying to install addons from Firefox addons management menu (tab 'about:addons'), they not downloads. and Firefox says 'addon can not be loaded because connection problem'.

When trying open 'https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/' have 'PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR'.

I am thinking the reason of this errors is blocking requests to 'addons.mozilla.org' by my internet provider (Beeline Kazakhstan). Because when I trying to connet to 'addons.mozilla.org' using VPN or proxy I have no problems described above.

I have no idea why this internet provider or goverment needs to block host 'addons.mozilla.org' (they love to block various website just fo fun). May you help me bypass this problem? May be you know the way how to install VPN addon offline for Mozilla Firefox whithout acces to addons webpage.

Sorry for my English and thank you for reading (:

Hi. After a BSOD I have clean installed Windows 10 and Firefox on SSD. My data is on a separate HD including my profiles folders. Sadly the Firefox profile got overwritten with my Thunderbird profile - woops! So I am trying to restore from an old 2017 back up. Bookmarks have come through but I cannot get the logins and passwords to work. I have tried copying the following files into the profiles folder from the restored back up folder:

   logins.json
   key3.db
   Cert8
   prefs
   signon.sqlite

I have tried this with other older backups too I don't understand why the profile is being recognised (I have my old bookmarks back) but no the logins and passwords. Is there any way of testing whether they are corrupt? If all else fails, is there any other way of 'reading' the information in those files so I can manually enter them again in the new profile If you are wondering why I am going to a 2017 backup it is because my backup program decided to stop backing up my profiles after that date without my noticing nor asking my permission!! Grateful for any help

April 10, 2021 Hello, I created my GMAIL account on Mozilla (last version 78.9.1 (32 bits)).

When I try to send a mail I receive error messages (see "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG").

When I cancel these messages, a page opens (see "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla '02.JPG").

When I validate my Gmail account address (see "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla '03'.JPG"), the previous page is displayed again. It is impossible for me to validate and enter my password.

If I send a message from another account, the message goes out well, it is not mentioned as undelivered but it is not displayed in the 'Gmail incoming mail' and I cannot force the reception of messages.

When I want to leave Gmail, I get this message "ERROR TO QUIT GMAIL.JPG". I waited 2 hours without success. When I connect to Gmail via the Internet, I find the message sent by another account in my incoming mail.

The image "Param IMAP Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG" shows my IMAP settings in Mozilla. The image "Param SMTP Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG" shows my SMTP settings in Mozilla.

How to fix this problem? Thanks in advance. for your cooperation. ONE WHO KNOWS IS BETTER THAN TEN WHO ARE LOOKING. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Le 10 avril 2021 Bonjour, J'ai créé mon compte GMAIL sur Mozilla (dernière version 78.9.1 (32 bits)).

Lorsque j'essaie d'envoyer un mail je reçois des messages d'erreurs (voir "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG").

Lorsque j'annule ces messages, une page s'ouvre (voir "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla 02.JPG").

Lorsque je valide mon adresse de compte Gmail (voir "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla '03'.JPG"), la page précédente s"affiche à nouveau. Il m'est impossible de valider et de pouvoir entrer mon mot de passe.

Si j'envoie un message depuis un autre compte, le message part bien, n'est pas mentionné comme non délivré mais ne s'affiche pas dans le 'Courrier entrant de Gmail' et je ne peux pas forcer la réception de messages.

Lorsque je veux quitter Gmail, je reçois ce message "ERROR TO QUIT GMAIL.JPG". J'ai attendu 2 heures sans succès.

Lorsque je me connecte sur Gmail via Internet, je retrouve le message envoyé par un autre compte dans mon courrier reçu.

L'image "Param IMAP Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG" indique mes paramètres IMAP dans Mozilla. L'image "Param SMTP Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG" indique mes paramètres SMTP dans Mozilla.

Comment régler ce problème ?

Merci par avance. UN QUI SAIT VAUT MIEUX QUE DIX QUI CHERCHENT.

Hello. Had installed Mozilla awhile back, then uninstalled it but could not remember why. After re-installing, the issue has come back and think it best to ask. I use Free Download Manager and the add-on is active and downloads OK. Problem comes when handling streaming videos. When an object I intend to download has a download button, FDM automatically picks and handles the download; however, when I right-click a streaming video and "Save Video As", Mozilla does not pick the download via FDM but switches to the traditional download method. Interestingly, same scenario in Chrome and Edge, the "save video as" via FDM works picks perfectly. Please help. Thanks

I got a new Lenovo Laptop and cant get Firefox to load a webpage. Here's what happens and what I've done 1. I install Firefox and during install get error below, VCRUNTIME140_1.dll Not Found. I then click OK and Firefox Installs but when I load it no webpages will come up just a black screen no indications it is even trying to load the page, no error message. It does nothing. Cant even open Google.com 2. I looked in MS forums and they say to install Visual C++. Did every x86 and X64 version I could find. Still have the problem even after uninstalling Firefox and reboot. 3 Have McAfee, and took Firefox off the Safe list then put it back on. 4. Went to try and find the file but can't on a reputable website. So I looked for this file on my Dell Laptop and Asus Desktop. Both have Firefox installed and it works fine. Get this, NONE of my other two computers have that exact file name anywhere. VCRUNTIME140_1.DLL! They have 140.DLL and a few other 140.dll with different variation but no 140_1.dll? So how does Firefox run on 2 other computers without this DLL but not on this new one? They are all Windows 10 Would appreciate any help. Seems to be a Firefox or Lenovo Issue just not sure. If anyone know how to get the DLL from MS let me know.

When FF team decided to block all addons for private mode there was a setting in about:config to allow all adons to work in private mode, but it looks like it is removed in 91 (?) or renamed (?).

So, how to enable all addons to work in private mode at once ? I have a lot and clicking each one in its settings will take a lot of time.

I have multiple computers, all Win10, All use Firefox. Recently one computer the HD crashed. I reinstalled Win10, Firefox, and a couple of other MS programs, all used on the other computers. The other computers all updated to 91.0.1, The new install is also 91.0.1. If I try to go to Google.com on the newly installed computer I get: Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

All the other computers search and go to Google just fine. So it is obvious it is something new between Google, Firefox and Win 10, the version of Win10 is 19042.1165 (win10 home) I have searched (using Edge and Bing) for some type of answer, but everything is from 2015/16 and older. Firefox when first installed, before the 91 update on Aug 20th, did work, it was after the Aug 20th update Google (and Bing) stopped with the security issue. I do not care for Edge or Bing, I hope someone can give me some ideas. Thankyou in advance.

Few days ago, I was going to update my browser to 94.0.1 when I decided to check first "what's new".

To my shock and horror, I read: "On Windows, there will now be fewer interruptions because Firefox won’t prompt you for updates. Instead, a background agent will download and install updates even if Firefox is closed".

Seriously?... this is not an "improvement". This is just a nice way to say "we are taking over the control of Firefox updates and remove all user choice in this regard".

What is the rationale for this change?

I don't allow any programs to download and install to my PC without my knowledge and permission (including Windows Updates and even Wordpress and plugin updates on my website). I decide if and when anything gets updated to avoid crashes and other computer issues, as well as to prevent installation of something I simply don't want. This includes browser updates.

Secondly, I finally managed to reduce the space between bookmark lines in menus with a workaround in the about: settings after months of struggling with the settings created for iphone users which are unworkable on my PC (the only device I ever use the browser on).

Could someone in the know confirm please that (1) this workaround will continue to work in 94.0.1 (as the release notes are suspiciously silent on this) and (2) that this option will be permanently reinstated in the browser settings with the next update.

I am not updating my browser until I get more information about the issues I have raised, using Chrome in the meantime and...indefinitely.

thanks

Background: I'm currently tutoring full-time, and the site I use allows tutors to download the session afterward as a .zip folder. In the past this has been incredibly helpful, because it allows me to review my lessons and improve my planning.

Current Issue: For some reason Firefox now appears to be misinterpreting these ZIP files as PDFs. When I begin the download, Firefox gives me the option to either open (as PDF) in Firefox, or to download. At this point (before any download occurs) Firefox has already labeled the file as a PDF. If I open it in Firefox, obviously it doesn't work (being a .zip folder.) If I download it, Windows Explorer usually lets me explore it as a .zip folder, but recently, about 10% of the files I download (even if I never open them as a PDF) still download as a PDF and are therefore inaccessible.

Fixes: I've tried downloading instead of opening with Firefox. This works about 90-95% of the time; not sure what the issue is. I've tried re-assigning the file type in Windows Explorer, to no avail. I've adjusted Firefox preferences (from "always ask" to "use Windows Explorer.") I'm not sure this will help, but will try.

Any advice? I hate to sound fussy, but I'm pretty meticulous about saving my lessons and hate losing that much data on my students. While I can save each file independently, it takes much longer. Thank you!

Your advice? Of course I hesitate as going to rel 87.0 got me into this trouble in the first place by losing EVERYTHING and forcing me to create a new profile, while "hiding" everything and started me from scratch. So now again, "I hesitate". I am almost 84 yo and I cant keep trying to recover FIREFOX bookmarks, add-ons...history.. keeps losing with every release.

Your advice? TRY to get at least, the bookmarks I recovered to a "new" profile or ignore FIREFOX and keep using my old working profile? Anyone find a way to "recover" lost ONETAB URL's?

System Elementary OS 5.1 (Ubuntu 18.04) Nvidia 465 driver

Tried with Firefox from Ubuntu repos and Flathub

Problem Since the update, I have this rectangle (see picture) on all websites, even the settings. This makes Firefox unusable.

What I already tried

  1. Numbered list item Started Firefox in Troubleshoot-Mode, where everything works normal. Nice.
  2. Numbered list item EDIT: I also tried the "Refresh Firefox" option, with no success
  3. Numbered list item I purged the Firefox install and removed all configs, addons etc. on disk (removed /usr/lib/mozilla, ~/.mozilla, /etc/firefox). Sadly, the Problem is still there.

So it works in Troubleshoot-Mode with my personalized Firefox version as well as a clean install, but never outside of Troubleshoot-Mode.

Question As a clean Firefox (see above) seems to work as intended, how do I reproduce this behavior outside of Troubleshoot-Mode? What changes between Troubleshoot-Mode and regular mode? Any advice?
