Since I updated to version 113.0.2 every time I try to open certain websites, Firefox shows an error message "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER". Once I choose to accept the risk and continue it redirects to the IP address "79.137.248.81" that redirects to spam. This happens on multiple sites, certain popular sites such as google work perfectly.

Yesterday I uninstalled and installed the browser. I rkilled and scanned my system with Malwarebytes, Avast and HitmanPro. I also have no malicious addons I found. Nothing worked.

I am attaching pictures of how the error shows.

Please Help.

I installed Firefox at work and set my personal email address as secondary to my business address. Well, I liked Firefox so much that I decided to use it at work and at home - and I removed my personal email from my business account. Unfortunately Firefox is still recognizing my personal email as the secondary address for my business account and I am completely incapable of making a new account. My bookmarks and saved passwords are all different between home and work. I NEED two individual accounts, just like how I was using my browsers with Chrome. t

Dear Anyone

You'll laugh like drains. I've got PagePlus 9 which lets you design .PDFs with fillable fields in, the idea BEING I could send out a form which anyone could fill in in their browser without having to understand word-processing. Looked great in PagePlus 9, loaded it into Firefox and it sucked royally - fields and data all over the show. Back to the drawing board. Nearly 5 hours and countless revisions later, it still sucked royally in Firefox.

Then I tried it in Chrome, Edge, Hola and CCBrowser and it worked like an absolute dream. Displayed perfectly. Let you enter data perfectly. Put it back into Firefox and it immediately sucked blue whales through thin straws again. So it's GOT to be a hewge bug with Firefox and .PDFs. Anyone know what it is and how to handle it?

In retrospect, I, too, find it Pretty Darned Funny that I didn't think of testing it in another browser before spending 5 hours on the thing! But if it's a Firefox and PDF bug, why's nobody spotted it in Developerland? That's the bit I don't get really. (If they HAD, surely they'd've just opened up the inner workings of another browser, learned what they were doing wrong and used what they'd learned?)

Can reload it and take screenshots if requested.

Yours puzzledly

Chris.

I have a task bar at the bottom of my screen -- or I used to. Ever since I installed a Norton protection program several says ago, the task bar shows up sometimes and other times, it is gone and I cannot access it. When it's there, it gives me access to the websites I'm using, all my written files and picture, video and other files, volume control and other options. I NEED TO SEE AND USE THIS TASK BAR ALL THE TIME, NOT SOME OF THE TIME WHEN FOR SOME REASON IT'S THERE. AGAIN, I WANT TO ACCESS THIS TASK BAR ALWAYS WHEN I'M ONLINE.

FIX THIS.

Thank you.

I'm amazed, just AMAZED I can't find the answer to this with a simple google search, or searching the questions here, and I re-worded my search several times. All the answers I could find, even chatGPT (I know it's not alway sup to date) told me to use this option even though I specifically told it it wasn't there, is anyone aware that sometimes the option isn't there? What gives? Not blaming anyone specifically, but this a really simple question, I'm I the first person it's ever happened to?

I'm trying to fix a sound problem where videos will not play, and this is a suggested step. The sound on youtube videos plays with Google Chrome, so it's not my sound drivers, just with firefox it doesn't play. One of the steps as well was the clear my info, I cleared everything except history, I wished there was a way to back those up, I'll look it up.

Starting firefox in safe mode doesn't fix the problem either.

This has happened twice. All my passwords were removed from the Fire Fox PW Manager. The first time, Google ended up with apparently this PW list created w/FF. I never knowingly gave permission for this. Second time my Primary PW will no longer work and I had entered the PW correctly.

Tried to set up a new PW file on FF, which I had since upgraded, but it will not accept my "last PW".

Please see changed email.

I am in the US. In the list of Search Shortcuts in firefox preferences, amazon is listed and used to be simply amazon.com. At some point it switched itself to amazon.de...Now anytime I go to amazon, I land on the German version. Yes, I use a vpn, but I never personally set the search shortcut to amazon.de. It happened without my permission. And I'd like to edit it back to the US version but there does not seem to be a way to Add the correct version without installing an extension which should be unnecessary. I can remove the wrong version of course, but then how to add the correct version and prevent it from switching without my permission?

I am on a mac, high sierra, firefox 113.0.2

Thank you.

Scrambled Fonts: I see that many people have this issue. I am unable to resolve this. Starting in safe mode fixes the issue temporarily, but I am tired of this. As Firefox is the default browser throughout all my Apple Macs in my studio, I need to resolve this bug. I have also checked Safari and Chrome to verify this is a Firefox issue. The other browsers do not scramble fonts, and I have found no helpful topic article that can fix this.

Before I jump to Chrome as my default browser, I thought I would contact support to see if this can be salvaged.

Hello,

I use Firefox at work and at home on the family computer. To have the possibility to access business data at home, I created a login for my business browser settings. If I micc now from home with my Firfox business account log in and log out again opens the next time Firefox from home automatically the browser with the start tabs of the business. This also after restarting the PC. I want to avoid this at all costs. How can I make the browser accessible to my family again, so that the usual tabs are displayed at startup and we do not need an extra password for the family browser?

Kind Regards

Frank
