I have updated my Firefox to the latest stable release 57 in a windows machine. I would like to know if TLS 1.2 is already enabled in my browser or do i need to make any changes in the default setup in order to make it active.

When i check "security.tls.version.min" it's shown "Value 1". Is that the right value to TLS 1.2 ?

Kindly advise.

The first one is the "real" one, using it with the same username here in the forum as well (elzach). The other one is just the email address I registered less than a year ago on the browser settings itself.

All my activity and add on reviews are under the first one. Problem is, I can't log in, it seems Firefox is permitting only the second account, registered as "accounts", which it uses for sync purposes. This is a very recent development it seems.

Any thoughts?

Hi AllI in the past I had when ever I opened FF 4 collums and 3 rows of tiles. Now when ever I open FF, have only 2 rows of tiles. If I zoom out I get first five collums and eventually 3 rows of tiles. By that time the tiles are so small I can't see what they for anymore. When I try to download a Add-on that seems to be able, to do exactly what I want,(had it with my previous version) it says I can't download the add-on as FF 38.0 (my current version ) has the feature build in. My FF does not have it!! It also does not have advanced option in the bottom left corner. It also does not matter if I use classic or inhanced view. PLEASE POINT ME TO A ADD-ON as FF changed for me to the worse, OR tell me which version of FF I can still have my tile lay out customized and do not need to take what some programmer seems nice Any and every help welcome

I think I found very easy and working solution for the issue of Firefox window being in mode Always on Top. Go to about:config and write there a string "ontop". In my case what appeared as a result is this setting.

E6C93316-271E-4b3d-8D7E-FE11B4350AEB---ontop == true

Switch it to value "false". It does not look like standard setting ony any built-in feature of Firefox, so this could be from some add-ons. Let's check add-ones, which are included and active in your FF. I found this (I didn't install it, but maybe it was installed by an admin).

Always on Top 2.1.25.1-signed.1-signed

Description:

Sets 'Always on Top' style for this windowVery simple "Always on top" addon implements the same simple functionality - it allows you to add style "Always on top" for current Firefox window.

You can use whether menu item, toolbar item or Ctrl-Alt-T shortcut

So turn it off, restart FF, and luckily work with it without being annoyed.

I had the combination Greasemonkey and script Social Fixer v15 (SFX) installed and working great in Comodo IceDragon. But an update to CID destroyed everything--installed a default profile. Other one gone. My online backup still backs up Firefox, not CID (yeah, my bad...and I am a backup nut).

So, back using Firefox. But when I install GM and SFX script (multiple times), there is no evidence at all that it is running. None of the effects that it does are in effect and a control button it puts on the screen does not appear.

How do I troubleshoot this? And why did it work so well in CID but not here?
