Sorry, but this is a repeat of an old problem, with a new glitch.

This is the text of the old question: "When I connect to homedepot.com, after a minute or so, I lose my DSL connection (red light on modem). This ALWAYS happens on that web site and ONLY on that web site. What the hell? It does not happen with (ugh) internet explorer. I am using Firefox 54.0.1 64-bit on Windows 7, SP1."

I have updated to the latest Firefox, and still have the problem on the computer.

I also use Firefox on my Android phone. Today, I connected to homedepot.com using the phone through my wi-fi router. The modem crashed. After reconnecting, I connected to the same site - again through my wi-fi router - using Chrome on my phone, and there was no problem. So it isn't the computer's OS, as was suggested. I have been using Firefox since version 1.0 and have never had any serious - or strange - problems. Hate to give up on it. Any ideas?

The site is from a major bank in the UK, so the idea that it is duff is rather far-fetched. It worked fine until I installed Firefox ESR 60.0.2. It has a valid certificate "Verified by: Digicert Inc.". What really irks me is that I DO KNOW BETTER than the blocking software, and some arrogant idiot has set up code that is preventing me from posting it as an exception until you get the Firefox problem fixed. And NO, it is not anything to do with antivirus or malware, as I have not changed any of these things, and have run checks often.

Try testing that website BEFORE you give any kiss-off answer!

And especially, DON'T BLOCK stuff unconditionally: the user should always be allowed to override that.

Firefox just shows a white page, no more tiles and bookmarks. I didn't change the settings. Disabbling addons did not work.

When I try to upload a file (multiple websites), firefox crashes without warning, doesn't open crash reporter, about:crashes reveals, "No crash reports have been submitted."

Starting in safe mode yields the same results.

Everything is fine until I move my mouse into the popup window to select my file for upload.

This only started happening in the last day. This is completely repeating everytime. I've downloaded files from these sites before today using firefox with no problems.

The same website upload works from IE/Edge.

I saw another post about Mozilla maintenance, so I unintalled it and set the option to update in the background to not allow this. Still crashes.

I've tried updating firefox from firefox, and I've tried downloading the latest version in Chrome, IE, and Firefox. In all cases, when I click on the Download link, I get to a page that says something like the following. Can you help me get the latest version?

HELP!! UNSUBSCRIBE ME!! from Re: Troubleshoot the "Secure Connection Failed" error message - Uncommon cause os this error message AND from Re: Deploying Firefox with extensions - Created this article

I’m being bombarded with these emails, but I never posted to this forum — I don’t even know what it’s about. When I his “unsubscribe” I get:

Are you sure you want to unsubscribe?

You will be unsubscribed from: None

followed by:

Unsubscribe Error

We could not find your subscription. Either it has already been cancelled, or there was a mistake in the unsubscribe link. Please make sure the entire link from the email made it into the browser. If the last part of the link wraps onto a second line in the email, try copying and pasting the link into the browser.


But the emails keep coming.

I posted a question to a completely different forum two days ago — Sync your Firefox bookmarks and browsing history in iOS - bookmarks won't sync — which elicited a curt reply from someone named Chris Ilias telling me that I’d posted to the wrong forum, then giving me instructions to go to http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new -- which took me back to exactly the same place where I’d posted in the first place.

Then I got another email from notifications@support.mozilla.org, subject line Re: Deploying Firefox with extensions - Created this article — which I also didn’t subscribe to.

Please stop sending me all these unsolicited emails. Or I’ll switch to Chrome.

I have tried turning off addons, tried safe mode, no change. Previously everything was fine till update.

Now, videos like on youtube run at a very low framerate, animated icons just crawl, countdowns that should be one per second are running at one per 5 seconds, everything that should be moving is very slow. Browsing to new pages is fine. Have tried some of the suggested changes to settings, nothing helps.

This is extremely frustrating. I cannot seem to disable or do anything with "containers" on FireFox.

Here's my story. I belong to an on-line Karaoke website that works with Flash. In order to be heard I have to enable "STEREO MIX" and make it my default communications device. This has been NO problem up until now. For some reason, in the sound mixer, there is a sound item called "firefox Container". The sound from the site "bounces" on that item rather than the Firefox slider. Muting the container only kills the sound.

How do I get rid of the container and get my sound coming through the Firefox icon? I've tried to look for my containers and I have them, but I cannot seem to disable them at all. I've included a pic of my volume mixer. There you can see the container and the Firefox logo but I cannot change the sound to the Firefox.

Thank you so much for any help.

Hello, I have a problem with Firefox at YouTube. Every video I try to play, it happens the same, this same problem appears. I've tried everything, restarting, cleaning, removing RegEdit of Firefox, nothing helps. I think others may have this problem but not noted. I've tried Safe Mode, no plugins, etc. I've tried embeds, they make this too.

I want to see my typed search history contained in the search drop-down box. When I enter "g" in the search box, a list of all the words starting with "g" that I recently searched for used to appear such as GreaseMonkey. Why should I type all those letters? GreaseMonkey used to make the search drop-down box work in version 38.

I am accustomed to using an app to restore previous sessions. But now that app is in progress reconstructing. So I thought there was a system restore button somewhere, but cannot now find it.

Various instructions in Mozilla Support refer to clicking on the FireFox button (three lines) it will be the fourth item down. No joy.

Did they get rid of it?

Thanks.
