I just installed Mozilla VPN a few minutes ago, and while it seemed to go flawlessly on my iPhone, it cannot connect on my Mac (MacBook Pro 13-inc early 2015, Mac OS 10.15.7). I've tried several different locations, both near and far, and each time the result is the same: it takes about 20 seconds to go from "Masking location and connection" to "Attempting to confirm connection," and then after a couple of minutes it turns itself off. It never appears to connect.

Suggestions?

My Antivirus (Bitdefender) did a full system scan and found a Trojan hidden in one of Firefox's files.

Trojan description: JS:Trojan.Cryxos.6249

Location: firefox/profiles../cache2/entries..

It was automatically deleted. No idea for how long its been there. could it have have done some damage unknown to my Antivirus ? How dangerous is it? Are there any further steps to take ?

I would like to search the bugzilla database for known issues.

While there is a builtin search tool, that does not work: if I search for a string and limit the search to one specific bug where I know it contains the string, then that bug is reported. Doing the same search over all bugs, it (takes long and then) reports that no bug at all contains the string - not even the one where I know it contains the string.

So this search tool is proven defective and cannot be used. What alternatives are there?

When I search Google from the address / search bar in Firefox Android, the progress bar goes to about 30% and stops for a long time before loading the page.

Worse, every page I click in the search results behaves the same way.

Same behavior just opening www.google.com.

Other sites load fine, just anything that starts with a Google URL is severely hobbled.

Same on mobile and Wi-Fi. Desktop PC on same Wi-Fi network is not affected.

Hi, I've been using Firefox as my default browser for years, this week I have started to see Secure Connection Failed pages when I try and connect to websites. There is a Try Again button and this always directs me to the correct page.


Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.bbc.co.uk. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem.

This problem happens from Favourites, links from other websites or URLs passed from applications etc. I'm on the latest version of Firefox 92.0 64bit.

I'm not seeing any similar issues on other browsers (Chrome and Edge)

Any idea why this has just started happening and what I can do to stop it?

Many thanks Richard

After the 90.0.2 update, the bookmarks menu no longer scrolls with the center wheel of my mouse. The center wheel scrolls properly in my emails, on webpages, everywhere else but the in the bookmarks. I have to use the up or down arrows to scroll through them, and it's a royal pain because I have so many bookmarks.

Whenever I open a new page in firefox it automatically loads a page from the recent history in the new window. This is partly annoying because there is a delay waiting for it to load a page you don't want, but is also quite a big problem when it loads a page from the history that was a pop-up with a reduced size, and sometimes with settings that prevent you from changing the page address.

I don't know why it is doing this but it is unusable behaviour. I've tried restarting the computer (and firefox) but it is still doing it. This is version 92.0 for ubuntu.
