This is not a question. It is a complaint. I can't see anywhere else to lodge it.

I am on a mac mini. I keep getting "Secure connection failed and Firefox did not connect" on secure government sites and others that I know are just fine. I'm sick of it. This did not happen till recently and I have not changed my settings or preferences for over a year.

When I get this message these days, guess what I do - I switch browsers. I would like to keep using Firefox. I like it. However, I get this message on too many sites to put up with it any longer. If it isn't adjusted in the next update, I will strongly consider switching browsers permanently.

Even Safari allows me to continue to the site - certificate or no certificate. Blocking me from the site is ridiculous. Fix it.

Firefox uses system High Contrast text color for websites

Hello, Firefox seems to be using my system's High Contrast text color to render websites. My High Contrast text color is a light grey, to contrast with a dark system background. However, many webpages on the internet have light backgrounds, so when Firefox uses this color, I can't read the text. I already have Options>Language and Appearance>Colors>Override the colors specified by the page set to "Never." This also occurs in a brand new profile with 0 extensions or addons in Safe Mode. I just want Firefox to display webpages "normally", i.e. with black text, without regard to the current system colors.

To reproduce: - Turn on High Contrast - Visit a site such as http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/ppois.html - Change system High Contrast text color to any color you wish - Notice that the text on the page also changes to the same color, even with the setting on "Never"

Is there any way I can get Firefox to ignore the system's text color settings? Chrome renders the webpage just fine with black text.

I don't know if this is an issue being encountered by anyone else, but few days ago all of a sudden twitter.com stopped opening on Firefox for Android. I trying disabling all my add-ons and turning of protection as well, nothing.

The windows browser is having no issues at all. But for some reason the android just won't open twitter. Everytime I try I get the error: "Cannot Complete Request

Additional information about this problem or error is currently unavailable."

Tried on a different network and a different mobile browser, all seems to be working. Any ideas?

Bonjour,

A chaque fois que je fais une recherche avec un seul mot dans la barre de recherche située en haut du navigateur, un message apparaît : "voulez-vous vous rendre sur" (voir image jointe).

Il semble que c'est un problème qui vient du serveur DNS. Seulement, je ne sais pas comment le configurer pour que ce message n’apparaisse plus.

Merci pour votre aide !

When I visit the weekly newspaper http://www.mambalamtimes.in/ the PDF opens in new tab without any issues with Google Chrome. However Firefox is trying get this PDF downloaded to the local disk instead of opening in the new tab.

I guess Firefox also has an inbuilt PDF reader so not sure why it is preferring the file to be downloaded over displaying and rendering the same inline...

Suddenly in the last few days, I can no longer view images on a stock photography site where I sell content. I can view the thumbnails of my and others' images, but when I click to enlarge, I get only a white box the size the image would be. I can also no longer view images posted in the forums. I've logged out and back in, cleared cookies, run CCleaner, rebooted, updated Java, and nothing helps. I can view the content if I log on with a different browser so this is a Firefox issue.
