Periodically when Firefox is updated, it starts rejecting Yahoo Mail from loading, giving the "Your connection is not secure" / SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER error. Unfortunately, it does not give you the option to add an exception, which clears up the problem most of the time.

Today this happened again with no ability to add an exception, and after looking at various websites for hours, trying to find a fix, I stumbled on one: Having Firefox "...automatically search for and import CAs that have been added to the Windows certificate store by a user or administrator." These are root certificates which you've manually imported. If you understood that last sentence, then it means you've probably done it on your computer; I know I have. The steps to fix it are these, and I cite the original web page further below:

- Open a new window in Firefox and type "about:config" without the quotes and hit enter - Confirm that you want to continue - In the search field, type in security.enterprise_roots.enabled and hit enter - you'll be left with one field - If it's marked as "false" then double-clicking it should turn it to "true" - Close the window, then go back to your Yahoo email login and try again. For me, this worked *perfectly*!

Here's the site where I found the info, under the "Experimental Built-in Windows Support" section: https://wiki.mozilla.org/CA:AddRootToFirefox

Good luck - I hope this helps to fix your Yahoo email login problem, too!

As of about firefox 63, it will no longer be possible to prevent firefox from checking for updates as the preference (option) to do so is being removed. In the past, it was simply a matter of setting the option to never check for updates. This is important in an organization as you want everyone to be at the same level. In such organizations, the latest firefox would be obtained once, checked out, then rolled out to the organization from it's support system team/person. Is there going to be a way to prevent the message "an update is available, please install?"

When trying to login to Netflix I keep getting it can't load the page because "Something Went Wrong. Sorry We having trouble with your request. You'll find lots to explore on Home page. |NSEZ-403 " It's only when I try and sign in. I've cleared the cache & cookies, and restarted Firefox multiple times, but still get this message. I also tried Chrome and had same problem, but don't get it with Safari.

Hi. I'm trying to log on to a particular company's website and keep getting the message :

"The requested URL was rejected. Please consult with your administrator. Your support ID is: 11373612934950299921" (with a different number each time)

I've cleared my histories, cache and cookies. My Firefox updates itself.

Going to other sites is fine.

I've spoken to the company, they don't know what's happened and are not having this problem themselves or with any other customers.

Which administrator might it be referring to? Can anyone help? (I'm not sure whether to click on 'Share Data' below; let me know if this would be helpful.) Many thanks.

I was trying to follow these instructions: https://help.twitter.com/en/managing-your-account/link-twitter-to-facebook. After disabling UBlock and changing Tracking Protection to be enabled for Private Tabs only, while I no longer see the error: "Failed to load the Facebook SDK. Please make sure you are not blocking connect.facebook.net." However, I still get this message next to the Facebook icon: "Having trouble? Learn more." (Link for Learn more text: https://support.twitter.com/articles/31113.) Refreshing the page changes nothing. This thread didn't help: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1130053. privacy.trackingprotection.enabled was already on false (at least after changing Tracking Protection to be enabled for Private Tabs only).

My site uses a template engine to wrap standard page HTML around templates that contain only the body text. However utf-8 multibyte characters are displayed correctly if there is no HTML header but incorrectly if the standard page header, which explicitly specifies utf-8 encoding, is presented to Firefox.

https://www.jamescobban.net/templates/Articles/FrenchOccupations.html is the template of the body text https://www.jamescobban.net/displayPage.php?template=Articles/FrenchOccupations has the HTML header and footer wrapped around it. You can look at it yourself, but to save time the header added by displayPage is:

   
   
      
        <title>
	    ...text extracted by DisplayPage from the h1 tag...
        </title>
        <meta charset="utf-8">

I have Firefox 63.0.1 64 bit using Win 7. After the latest update, I frequently get the "performing a tls handshake" when trying to view a webpage. After 7 to 8 minutes I get a message saying "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 could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem." I've researched this problem and haven't come up up with an answer as to how to correct this. Does anyone know how to correct this?

I hate all kinds of text smoothing/antialiasing with passion and for he longest time I had none of it in Firefox, yet after upgrading to FF64 some kind of text antialiasing has been forced on me for some reason. At first it was all over the browser, then in a minute it glitched out and disappeared from actual pages, yet it's still all over the interface: on tab names, on bookmark names in the bookmark panel (but strangely not inside bookmark folders), it's in the address and search bars, in the "File, Edit, etc." menu and some other menus as well.

How do I get rid of all text antialiasing for good?

Google.com is my homepage in Firefox 62.0.2 (64-bit) It takes forever to load. I can go load Chrome where Google is also my homepage, come back to Firefox and still be waiting for Google to load.

When I login to gmail, I type my password and wait and wait and wait and then I get sent back to the login page and have to type my password again.

I need to speed this up. I prefer Firefox over Chrome, but Chrome is faster to use.

I've installed the latest version of Firefox. Firefox Quantum 63 x64 and ReCaptchas don't work properly. It has been installed on a fresh Windows 10 Pro and Firefox it's at the same time a fresh install like I'm showing on the video at the end of this post. No firewall, no antivirus, no addons, nothing that should stop Firefox from automatically do the ReCaptcha. But every time you click on I'm not a Robot it always prompts you to do a puzzle.

Please Firefox, fix this issue. It is pretty frustrating to have to answer every time a puzzle that are ridiculously annoying or having to switch to Google Chrome to use those kind of pages that ask you to answer a ReCaptcha.

However, if there is anyone that has a solution, please share it with me or all of us. Because I've been trying to find an answer and haven't find one that works. So I will appreciate a good fix for it.

Thanks in advance to the community and hopefully Firefox finds a fix because for what I've read it's a persistent issue with other older versions too.
