Greetings!

I have a little problem with a SSL certificate with the same site in different langagues with the same versions of Firefox.

I installed a certificate from RapidSSL on a website and with the english client of Firefox 67.0.4, I got no SSL error at all. On the other hand, if I use the french client of Firefox 67.0.4 for the same website, I get the 'SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER' error code.

After more digging, I found out that in the english client, it seems that RapidSSL is automatically registered as a valid cert publisher and not in the french one...

Is that a known problem?

Thanks a lot and best regards

You used to be able to add a new folder by picking "new folder" and then add the name of the folder. Now when I want a new folder, that choice is not there. When I want to move a new folder, all I had to do was hit move to and a menu would appear of previous folders. And you had a chance to save a new folder if that was your wish, or scroll down and find a folder is already there. Now I do not have that choice to start a new folder.

Some of the sites I visit allow me to format text with control characters (eg ctrl-b to bold the text). However, Firefox interrupts the control characters and opens the bookmark sidebar instead. How can I override this shortcut (and, perhaps, almost every shortcut)? Thank you, Ben

My Windows 10 taskbar is set to auto-hide. For some reason, with Firefox on my laptop (but not on my desktop computer), Firefox will not allow the taskbar to pop up. I have searched for multiple solutions, and attempted:

- Restarting with add-ons disabled. - Closing the browser and then renaming xulstore.json before restarting.

The only solution that has worked temporarily is going into full-screen mode then exiting it, but again, it is only temporary, as either minimizing the window or leaving maximized mode will cause the problem to reoccur when the window is maximized again.

Since May 2019 update WHY is Firefox 67 so messed up? Constantly changing proxy setting and not able to set it and have it remain set for no proxy. Frequently runs new tab non stop across top of page and unable to stop it from running , I have to log out completely to get the running tab to stop. But it only starts up again when I open Firefox again. \ Eliminated all add-ons and extensions. I had set up extensions with new directions to allow the specific extensions to be downloaded.

Constant message can't find server col122.mail.live.com, when Firefox opens and sometimes this occurs when proxy setting  has changed  on its own .   But this "can't find server" message shows up almost every time I open Firefox and is NOT  always associated with proxy changes.    

This update has been a BIG HEADACHE  !! AND THEN TODAY THE WHOLE THING CRASHED my computer. It took me over 5 hours to get my computer up and running again. However, I am Still getting the message "can't find server col122.mail.live.com" and proxy changes randomly.

HELP PLEASE

Hi, I am currently Thailand. When I do a Google search, results show date in Thai years. According to google support, in order to get results in regular date format, I have to set my location to anywhere but my current one, then save settings by pressing save button at the bottom of the page. There is no save button at bottom of page. Is this because I'm using Firefox? Can you suggest another way to not get google search results in thai years? Or save changes to settings? Thanks

I was pleased when a recent release of Firefox promised to block autoplay by default, but it turns out that it merely blocks the sound of videos. When I go to the websites of, say, the NY TImes or Washington Post, annoying videos are running, using up bandwidth. I can't find any setting within Firefox -- or any add-on -- that succeeds in turning these off. A silent video is better than a noisy one, but why can't we block ALL autoplay?

Firefox is periodically giving me a notification that there is an update available. It does this multiple times a day, generally appearing to happen if Firefox has been "not in active use" ie minimized for some period of time. I've already clicked "not now", so I shouldn't be seeing it anymore.

How do I disable it? I don't want to update unless I absolutely have to (ie back when all the addon certificates expired) due to Mozilla's penchant for making unwanted changes to the UI. I just want the notification to go away and not appear again.

As it is, this is basically a form of very annoying spam coming from the browser itself.

I am using ver 67.0.4 (64-bit) on Windows 7 Professional. I have been able to open new search results in separate tabs. I do not want them opening in the same tab. It used to be that I could toggle browser.search.openintab to True and it would work. No luck now. It keeps opening in the same tab. :-( Open links in tabs instead of new windows is checked.

It seems with every new version something annoying happens and I am caught wasting time to fix this. How can I fix this? TIA.
