This is not a gripe about frequent updates, nor a case of being redirected to the "browser updated" page every time I start Firefox.

What is happening is that every time I open Firefox, I get a message from Windows asking for permission to let Firefox perform an update, then after I click "Yes" a window with a loading bar that says "Firefox is installing your updates, this may take a few moments..." or something similar to that comes up, and then the browser opens when it is done updating.

This happens literally every time I start Firefox, even if I close it and immediately start it again. This has been happening for several days now, and refreshing Firefox has not helped.

Help?

Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon 64 bit, Firefox 63.0.3 64 bit.

My spell checker seems to insist on British spelling and not English - U.S. I have insured that my Linux is the correct language and that my FF has the correct language and dictionary. Sill it wants me to spell color vs colour on Facebook and I am not sure where else. Now what?

Thanks..

Why doesn't Firefox fill in the credentials?

Firefox does not trust DigiCert Global Root CA even though trust is set

I've had trouble accessing websites that use a certificate that's signed with the DigiCert Root CA. As an example, if I open up blog.mozilla.org, I get a SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER.

This is somehow related to my user profile. If I create a new profile, the problem disappears.

I've tried deleting cert*.db in my profile directory to no avail. I checked about:config and I couldn't find any relevant non-default configuration.

To my surprise, if I want to manually set the trust of the certificate in the certificate manager ("Edit Trust"), it tells me that the certificate is trusted. However, if I click on "View Certificate", I get the following error: "Could not verify this certificate because the issuer is unknown."

I don't know much about CAs, but it seems to be surprising how the issuer of a Root CA could be unknown, isn't that the whole point of a Root CA that it does not need to be signed by another certificate?

The more important question: Where in my profile may I have a non-default option that causes Firefox to not trust the DigiCert Global Root CA?

When I use Bing Images and I click on an image that I have selected I have in the past been able to click on that image to view the enlarged version of it in one tab but now it incorrectly opens two tabs instead of one. This does not happen in Chrome or Edge. Now if I use the menu that has "view image" below the image it will not open two tabs but correctly open one tab to view enlarged version. Please see screenshots with captions. This has never happened with earlier versions of Firefox.

Thank you, Don

Running Firefox 63.0.3 (64-bit) on Windows 10 ver 1803, I click on "Restart to update Firefox" and get "Firefox is installing your updates and will start in a few moments." But when it does start, nothing has changed: I am still running 63.0.3 and it still says "Restart to update Firefox." I have been round this loop a half dozen times. What next?

When I get prompted to update software, like Cisco Anyconnect, or Adobe Flash, I follow the prompts, and Firefox starts the download, creates a file, but no data is transferred. It just sits there with the file size at 0 bytes, and will do this indefinitely. To get around this I've used Chrome. I've also tried navigating to the download site in Firefox without the prompt, but it still does not work. For what it's worth here's troubleshooting info:

I set google.com as my homepage and haven't had problems until today. When I opened Firefox, The Microsoft homepage opened. I tried refreshing Firefox, checked the URL in Properties, and looked for add-ons--no fixes. The refresh had no effect, there was no URL added to the firefox.exe in properties, and I have no add-ons that would cause this. I thought it could be a virus but the page seems to be a legitimate Microsoft site. If I click the home icon on the tool bar, I get to the correct page. I'd appreciate any suggestions you might have. Thanks

For years I have used Firefox and been able to login to my NatWest Account - suddenly I am no longer able to have this facility. SECURE CONNECTION FAILED - The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data couldn't be verified. Please contact the owners of the website to inform them of this problem.

I looked on your help site to see if there were others with this challenge and found some comments from some sanctimonious prat to the effect that this should be remedied by the website owner and that eventually the website would no longer be able to be accessed by any other browser such as Chrome, Edge etc. Great, but I need to see my bank accounts online and rather than change banks, I am changing to Edge so that I can. Eventually NatWest may have to change their security but until then I am going to move away from Firefox, and, I know I only contribute a small amount to your "cause" every year but I shall take that away as well - you are too "holier than thou" in your approach to security and take no thought of how its implications affect the user.

I had one of my gmail accounts open on the left side of the tab bar (Tab1).

When I opened a different gmail account (Tab2) in a new tab both Tab 1 and Tab 2 moved to the right side of the line of tabs.

That is not where I want them!!!!!!!

1) Before yesterday this would not happen.

I tried to move Tab1 and Tab2 back to the left side of the Tab bar where they would have been until you messed up Firefox

2) Before yesterday I could move the tabs to any position on the Tab Bar.

I want to know that when I open a to know my tabs will open on the right side of the tab I am working in without moving the original tab to the right side of the row of tabs. Which is how it was in the past.

I want to the ability to move the tabs to any location on the tab bar restored.

There isn't anything that I can find in Options that can fix this issue.

When buying something with a credit card and you valid this. There is sometimes security validation for the transaction by the bank. The time you wait for the validation code by SMS or other. Firefox is disconnecting and you can start again or better you have to buy things on other browsers where I noticed no problems. Is it possible to resolve this very, very inconvenient problem ? Thanks.

Hi there.

After years of not using Firefox, I decided to give it another try and installed it on my 13 inch Mid 2010 MacBook Pro. It's the latest Firefox release (63.0.3) and I notived that it is still a lot slower compared to other browsers. Pages loading slower, videos are choppy, and it also seems to use more power and memory.

So I decided to do some tests not to rely only on my observations, and it seems that I'm right. I'm using the latest Mac Os High Sierra 10.13.6 with SSd drive and 8GB of RAM.

I googled some browser tests, and I found this website: https://browserbench.org and ran all 4 tests available, and compared it to the latest version of Safari (12.0.1), the latest version of Chrome (70.0.3538.102) and here is what I found:

Firefox: Motion Mark: 49.13 Speedmeter: 21.5 Ares-6: 207.57ms JetStream: 62.505

Chrome: Motion Mark: 54.58 Speedmeter: 27.4 Ares-6: 72.39ms JetStream: 62.919

Safari: Motion Mark: 98.79 Speedmeter: 34.5 Ares-6: 58.29ms JetStream: 85.729

As you can see, the Firefox performance is rather poor, and it's been like that on my MacBook since I remember. I thought this new Quantum one will be much better, but I'm very disappointed.

Why is this happening? Why is Firefox so slow? I'd appreciate your thoughts on this.

Best

It did not help at all. First of all I can't actually change the pop up to like "do this for files like this in the future". It doesn't come with a drop down menu like that (check image). Also changing in the settings of firefox what the browser will do with certain files didn't change anything :/.
