After every update, my Fire Fox browser tells me that the version I used isn't supported anymore, forcing me to open a new browser. I lose everything! I can't keep doing this nearly everyday! I keep trying to ask for help but no one will help me! No matter what I do this issue continues. I thought it was because of my laptop but it's not. It's Fire Fox, which sucks because I loved using this browser.

Hi,

We are using firefox as the browser client for a webrtc based video streaming application. The other client is Gstreamer webrtcbin. The communication works fine with FIPS mode disabled, but it fails when we enable FIPS as part of security. The Gstreamer client sends an SDP offer to the firefox browser client, but it fails to create an answer and respond back. The WebAPI (RTCPeerConnection.createOffer) fails with below exception at application code.

"UnknownError: The operation failed for an unknown transient reason"

Also, tried to check some failure message in browser log and found as below. Not sure if it is related to the failure.

NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE: Component returned failure code: 0x80070057 (NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE) [nsICryptoHash.init]


System setup:


OS - OpenSUSE 15 SP3 Firefox version - 78.13.0esr (we also tried with version 91.10.0esr)


Any quick help will be much appreciated as we are stuck with this.

Thanks, Saurav

I'm not sure that I picked the best topic, but here goes . . .

Sadly, I used an app called CleanMyMac X and now all of my passwords, etc, that were saved in "Blur" are gone. It seems that Blur might be in a folder called "Old Firefox Data" that is now on my computer's desktop, but all of what might be Blur's data is encrypted and I don't know how to access it.

I have written to Blur, and CleanMyMac, Mail.com, Google, and others, but I only get automated answers that won't work because I can't login to anything because my passwords are not available to me.

What to do? I can't even login to FF, nor can I get the email that FF has for me.

Can I ask for answers at [removed email from public] ?

See above on Subject = inability on my laptop with Firefox provider to watch certain dramas/films on 4 due to DRM. My problem is trying to follow the instructions hitherto given. I just want to be able to access those sites with DRM overlordship getting in the way. I am an old man who is simple-minded, that is, not 18 years and adept at whizzing around laptops.

Problem: different areas of the same domain requires unique passwords. eg example.com/admin1/ user: name example.com/admin2/ user: name

The user name is the same for both, are fixed and cannot be changed.

When I log in to admin1/ but then need to log in to admin2/ Firefox thinks I am updating my password used in admin1/ .

I have read question 1280159 (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1280159) which only partially solves it IF the user name can be modified.

How can i solved this without accidentally losing my password/s ?

DISCLAIMER: THIS HAS BEEN SOLVED! Dear Firefox Team, I have installed Firefox-ESR on my HP Chromebook 11, using linux. I saw it going slow so I searched up stuff. I went to "whatsmybrowser.org", saying Firefox 78. I saw that on an article there is 91 and 95. It is 11/3/21, and no update is showing up which a help article said "On 11/2/21, users can update to Firefox-ESR version 91." I couldn't update, so I am now asking for help. Its also going VERY SLOW which I can barely run scratch, google, and even the homepage. Please give me answers so I can fix the problem. Thanks, cogithedog.

Hello! I'm running 78.15.0esr (64-bit) on El Capitan (Mac).

On my LinkedIn page, I cannot scroll the messages on the main page. I looked up any clues with the inspector and Google, but found nothing.


I deleted cookies, cache and tried in Safe mode but issue persists.

Any ideas? Thanks a lot in advance and wishing you a great day!

The whole scrolling experience overall does not work very well on LinkedIn. I understand I'm running on an old OS, however it's the one that works the best with my laptop. Any recommendations as to what's the best and most updated browser for this version?

thanks!

I have found a few pages about address rewriting; how do I disable them all ? - searching single word into google (type "keyw" in about:config to disable it) - hiding http when not using https - trying to add "www" and ".com" around a single word when the word did not resolve

I consider most of them as security issues for various reasons.

And when editting an URL, I want firefox to keep showing the full url as it was invoqued; not add https randomly, or removing http other days. And the more I disable some, the more new ones appear.

hello, does anyone know how to create a setting to automatically save history for just one site, when you have your settings to delete all other history upon closing firefox?

This one site i use constantly (my email program), and don't want to have to go through the cumbersome process of logging in yet again and again, and i trust it so i don't feel the need for that one's history to be deleted.

thanks!

I often hop between Linux distro installations, and I generally use the same hostname for a single computer when I do reinstalls. I have had a computer called 'sparrow' that I've signed into Firefox several times on across OS changes, and they all appear in the 'Send Tab to Device' menu that I use frequently. Since none of these devices exist anymore, they're completely useless.

I've gone to the Manage Devices page where you can sign out of any devices that are currently logged into my Firefox account, but clicking sign out on 'sparrow' does nothing. It stays in the menu, and no entries from the tabs menu are removed. I've tried this from all my computers.

I've thought of maybe downloading all my firefox sync data and completely recreating my Firefox account, but I'm hoping there might be a simpler fix.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
