I, today, found that Firefox 88.0.1(64bit) sends "/nice%20ports%2C/Tri%6Eity.txt%2ebak" to an website. What is this? Am I infected? The Apache log at the HTTP server is as follows:


snip --------------------

192.168.1.188 - - [10/May/2021:07:42:41 +0900] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 665 "-" "Mozilla/5.0" xps8940 192.168.1.188 - - [10/May/2021:07:42:42 +0900] "GET /nice%20ports%2C/Tri%6Eity.txt%2ebak HTTP/1.0" 403 - "-" "-" 192.168.1.188 192.168.1.188 - - [10/May/2021:07:42:42 +0900] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 403 - "-" "-" 192.168.1.188 192.168.1.188 - - [10/May/2021:07:43:58 +0900] "GET /Picture/MicroS5S.gif HTTP/1.1" 200 3042 "http://wista.jp/Index.htm" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:88.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/88.0" xps8940

The server is located within my home LAN. 192.168.1.188 and xps8940 is the captioned machine that sends this unknown protocol. Tested by Chrome and found no such protocol sent. Could any guru enlighten me? Tak

I have been using Firefox for years now, but since an update a couple of months back, when I deploy a new internal site I receive an error stating that the "Secure Connection Failed" because of "Error code: SEC_ERROR_REUSED_ISSUER_AND_SERIAL". There is a official workaround explaining how to bypass this issue, however it doesn't work. I have tested the same sites with Chrome, Edge, IE and it always works why is Firefox suddenly not working? Below are images of my local lab replicating the issue.

The Firefox process seems to freeze after "mouse button up" from "Save Image As". Sometimes the context menu stays frozen on the screen, sometimes it does not. There is no ability to switch tabs or cancel the context menu. The image itself never saves to disk. I have reformatted and installed Firefox several times fresh out of the box and it still has this behavior. Running Firefox from the console and having Firefox freeze gives no indication or error or message about what is going on. I would say this happens 1 out of 20 images saved. I can easily reproduce this behavior, even though it is inconsistent.

I have lost all sound comming from firefox after disconnecting an audio output device while it was being used.

To be more precise, the output device is shared between two computer via a hardware usb switch. I was a bit to fast switching from one to the other multiple times and all audio bugged for a few second, everything worked after that except for firefox.

I have no sound comming from firefox even when using an some other output (such as a headset from a jack).

Firefox does appear in the volume mixer but no sound to be seen there either. (see attached image where firefox and spotify both are playing music, but only spotify is working as intended). However firefox does not appear at all in eartrumpet's volume mixer

I have tried : - PC reboots - firefox re-install (un-installed, deleted the %appdata%/firefore, before re-installing) - turning FF hardware acceleration on/off - using a different profile (about:profiles) - disabling all plugins - disabling / enabling every audio output in the device manager

This happens far too often, in the course of 9 months or more frequently. What is going on Firefox? v88.0.1 Windows 10

Constant script errors that freeze whatever program I am in, regardless of the option I choose - the popup no longer gives me a WAIT or STOP IT. The box comes up that says DON'T ask me about this again.

I do not want to copy passwords, more than anything, should I create a new profile. I do not want to deal with replacing or losing the file. When I attempted to load two other profiles over the last two days, both times FF crashed. I gave up.

I am NOW in Safe Mode and without errors, and it's hard to know which app is causing the problem.

Is there a new addon that will back up Firefox these days?

Suggestions? Seriously, FF seems to be a whole lot more trouble these days than she is worth.

Thank you.

This is a weird one. I would appreciate help. Please read carefully before responding....I am not a newb

Connected my new XPS laptop for the first time to my monitor. Everything looks fine (Windows 10, Chrome, other programs) EXCEPT for Firefox. In Firefox, all the text looks grainy, obviously not right. I disabled all my extensions, REFRESHED/RESET the browser, with no improvement.

But when I opened Firefox's troubleshooting mode, the browser immediately improved, became crystal clear. Also, when I took a screenshot to post here, the screenshot of the text appeared crystal clear as well. So it's definitely not the monitor.

Again, I've refreshed Firefox, and turned off all my extensions. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Still seeing grainy text. Troubleshoot mode says it turns off "extensions, themes, and custom settings" --what else does it turn off?

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks, s.

I am trying to update the primary email associated with my Firefox account. My primary email is listed as <primary@domain.name>, for example. My secondary email is not assigned. When I try to add <preferred.email@domain.name> to my secondary email, I get the message: "Secondary email must be different than your account email"

I do not see this "account email" listed anywhere. Where do I find it, and how can I change it?

I've used Firefox as my default browser for years. I'm now on a Win10 laptop I've been using for over a year. I have not knowingly made any recent changes to FF. I'm on FF version 88.0.1 (64 bit).

Suddenly, yesterday, I found that I was blocked from viewing many YT videos and comments. YT says I am in restricted mode. It is not due to a setting on my YT/Google account, because I'm not logged in.

Exact YT messages: "Video unavailable--This video is restricted. Please check the Google Workspace administrator and/or the network administrator restrictions." And "Restricted Mode has hidden comments for this video."

However, I have no problem viewing them in Chrome. So logically it's a FF problem.

Also, I discovered that other sites are affected. For example, if I run a "domain lookup" on the ICANN website, I get less detailed results than if I run the search on Chrome! https://lookup.icann.org/

Switching from Strict to Standard Tracking Protection didn't help. Then I did a FF refresh but that also didn't help.

Suggestions? Be aware I'm not a coder or any kind of super techhie.

When selecting PayPal as a pay option & a new window opens up, it will not connect to my PayPal account unless I first go directly to PayPal & log in directly. I am using the latest FireFox but it has been doing this for a long time so I don't think the version is the issue. I believe it is a setting in either PayPal or FireFox. PayPal reviewed my account and noted that there is no issue with it. That leaves a FireFox setting. Any ideas?

The import of the logins and passwords does not work on new Firefox 88.0.1. I've switched to new PC and I installed the same Firefox 88.0.1 as on old PC. I tried several times to sync old PC and new PC without success.

I exported logins to a file on old PC and I enabled import from the .CSV files on new PC. That does not work neither as I got almost all imports errors. I attached the print-screen.

On new PC even when I enter manually login and password on page the password is never saved. It looks like Lockwise is completely busted. Please let me know when could you fix this critical error ?
