After being forced to upgrade Firefox to version 69 it has been blocked?!

Posted

Hi All,

Can someone help please on the issue I am having?? After I updated to newest version of Firefox 69 it has been blocked automatically by something? As it is not opening any website :/ I disable AVG Network Security for all and also windows FW seems to be disable and still not working?! I also lost all my website browsing tabs, and cant import them successfully into newest Firefox?! I don't know what changes have been done to this firefox but apparently it is the worst changes they have been done, since its not working automatically. I wasted 2h going around this and still not working! WHen I use version 50 is working fine but now can't import any bookmarks?

Ok, I managed to sort last 2 things, I could migrate bookmarks to version 50 and I can add new ones as well. Still don't know why after upgrading to newest version is being blocked by something??

We do not live here.


The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.

If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. Your feedback gets collected by a team of people who read it and gather data about the most common issues.

Some problems occur when your Internet security program was set to trust the previous version of Firefox, but no longer recognizes your updated version as trusted. Now how to fix the problem: To allow Firefox to connect to the Internet again;

  • Make sure your Internet security software is up-to-date (i.e. you are running the latest version).
  • Remove Firefox from your program's list of trusted or recognized programs. For detailed instructions, see

Configure firewalls so that Firefox can access the Internet. {web link}

Hi Fred,

Thanks for all your suggestions here. Finally Firefox announced a new upgrade for ver 70 and this version is working fine without any issues. Unnistalled previous version and removed profile, then installed the newest one and is working fine without blocking access by default and didn't have to disable any FW, antyvirus or any other programs.

The problem has been solved. Thanks a lot!
