Hello.

I'm trying to do some online shopping, and I see the green padlock on my screen and everything, but I'm still not sure if I have a secure internet connection. The following is what Firefox says the encryption is.

(TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA, 128 bit keys)

Thanks,

Sean

We have a company wiki with links to files on a local server, which were enabled with capability preferences in the user.js file. It stopped working with FF29. I have been following a bug report https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=995943 on the issue, which implies that the functionality was reinstated in FF30. However, nothing happens on clicking a link. I have searched, but can't find anything recent specific to this. Should it work with the previous user.js? OS is Windows 7.

i used firefox for quite some time, years actually, and history always worked without problems. i can't tell exactly when it began, but suddenly it stopped. i tried ticking each of those boxes that are mentioned in help/troubleshoot and also with just selecting remember history without any boxes ticked, it does exactly not that ... well, it does, but it's kinda useless and even more pointless when your history is only stored for the last seven days. is the month ending and turning to the first day of the next, it says today, last seven days, [name of last month] ... i'm happy, thinking, yay it works again ... only to get it deleted after the first seven days of the new month - gone. as if never existed.

i can't bookmark each page i visit just to have some kind of history, that's kinda pointless and ludicros and defeats the whole prupose of storing a history for maybe later reference of wot i did some time ago.

[windows xp, sp3, firefox 30]

[on another note, but not related to the above question although it annoys me since even a longer time ... what is it with those memory and cpu spikes to 90% out of nothing ff does, no difference if there are 20 tabs open or just one blank tab?]

(Firefox just does not startup. Says crashed,.., and sometimes crash reporter also does not get started. Reinstalled, and removed and reinstalled, then, used 34.0 and then 30.0 but same problem persists. Also, deleted firefox in c:user:local:appdata:mozilla folder(around 700 mb) and then retried with fresh install. Still does not work.

so i filled in the form it took forever and then the SUBMIT button did not work. here is my complaint/suggestion for improvement

hi i have linuxmint 16 and 17, on 16 firefox is ver 30.0. TWO "problems" -1- (real problem) when saving a webpage with ctrl-s, and hitting "save", i get NO indicator that

  i am trying to write a file to a directory i dont have permission for. the screen LOOKS like the
  save happened, but looking in the directory shows no file made, and i see 
  NO ERROR MESSAGE fromFIREFOX

-2- problem/MAJOR annoyance. when saving webpages that people have named with special characters

  (linux filenames (can but shouldnt) have & ' " ? / * ! ` : < > | { } (etc)), firefox names the file as-is.
  (and windows filenames shouldnt/cant have / \ : * ? " < > | ).  
  This causes a problem when i dual-boot (windows then CANT access files with special chars)
  SO i have to boot linux, rename the file, then boot windows (if i wanna use the file in windows)
   idea for fix: either just delete the offending chars from the filename or replace with (maybe)
   underscore singlealphacharacter please DONT USE percent number number number as THAT
   is a hassle to type, and it unncessesarily lenghens the filename.
   suggested mappings, change & to _a  < to _l  > to _g  | to _p
   (read in your mind as under-ampersand, under-lesshtna, under-pipe, ...)
   here are URLs for a two sample pages named this way

http://cosmos-documentaries.blogspot.fr/ http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/earth-unplugged-slow-motion-time-lapse/

please let me know your thoughts/your designteam thoughts on these ideas. thanks !!
