When our solar system was installed nearly six years ago we were given a web address to check production status and more. About 3 months ago we were no longer able to bring up the site. It simply says "problem loading page". I tried other browsers with no success. Ideas?

Hi, I have 61.0.2 (64 bit windows 10)

Narrator doesn't show the icon ANYMORE. I used it daily, didn't change anything recently BUT only followed this guide to disable WebRTC

In short:

   Enter "about:config" in the firefox address bar and press enter.
   Press the button "I'll be careful, I promise!"
   Search for "media.peerconnection.enabled"
   Double click the entry, the column "Value" should now be "false"
   Done. Do the WebRTC leak test again.
   media.peerconnection.turn.disable = true
   media.peerconnection.use_document_iceservers = false
   media.peerconnection.video.enabled = false
   media.peerconnection.identity.timeout = 1

is this the reason, is this a good thing after all?

Hello, I am unable to download files from Google Drive. On clicking the download button for a file or right-clicking a file and select the download option, a new blank page opens in the same tab and no popup window appears to save the file or view it.

Actually I did a little bit of a research and tried downloading different types of files and there I noticed this strange thing - 1. Whenever I try to download a file that was uploaded to the drive at some time, it is not downloading and instead a blank page opens and no download popup window appears. 2. Well, here is the strange part: When I tried downloading a file that was created using Google services (say Google docs), and not uploaded, the download popup window appears without opening a blank page. In this case, the file is downloading.

On the other hand when I tried downloading the files from Google Drive using Google Chrome, there is no such problem.

Currently I am using the latest version of Firefox, i.e, Version 61.0.2 (64-bit). I tried different solutions listed for this problem but none of them worked. I created a new profile and using this profile checked whether the problem still persists and yes it has not resolved. Also I tried deleting the handlers.json file in my profile, but it also didn't work.

I have updated the favicon on a client site and yet my Firefox bookmark still shows the old favicon and will not update to the new one. I've cleared history and cache, deleted and re-bookmarked - all to no avail. One forum suggested an add on but the one they suggested isn't compatible with the latest version of Firefox, which I have.

Any ideas?

I have chosen not to continue with channelhopper after a trial for 1 month. Now I cannot load Amazon.com which I have been using for many years because I am told the certificate for channelhopper is no longer valid. What has the latter to do with Amazon.com? How can I get my connections back. I appear to have a similar problem with netflix and amazon prime on my new imac but can bring up the latter OK on an old and normally no longer used imac. Can you help please. This is also affecting my 4th generation AppleTV comnnections....

It appears that while Firefox currently supports TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 it does not support TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384. Would it be possible to add support for this Cipher Suite?

The difference being support for CBC in addition to the currently supported GCM.

There is a video embedded in this webpage http://slippedisc.com/2018/08/what-moscows-new-concert-hall-sounds-like/#comment-475204 that doesn't display in Firefox but does display in MS Edge.

NOTE: This is just one example of the problem. It is most notable on the slippedisc.com website.

A similar problem happens on this website https://www.diynetwork.com/ultimate-retreat/sweepstakes?nl=R-DIY:UR2018_2018-08-24_Enter-DIY&bid=14256743&c32=ee510e44c646c5d1116f9d8f9c6fefac5560bd00&ssid=2016_HGTV_Dream_Home_2016_Wildfire&sni_by=1946&sni_gn=Male

There is a Radio Button that says "ENTER", Clicking on it does nothing. It works in MS Edge.

Normally I display bookmarks in the left side bar. Sometimes if I access a Youtube, the video will come up in that sidebar and I can no longer see the bookmarks there. I have to go to view --> sidebars to have them re-displayed there. If I try another youtube after that, the same thing occurs.

It just started recently though I cannot say exactly when. I do not have any add-ons on the system; there are two plugins used for videoconferencing, and they have been in place long before this began happening.

Suddenly when i go to the websites of netflix and stackoverflow i only see text. Image of stackoverflow provided. These are the only ones where i've noticed it at least. I searched online forever and i cleared recent history of today (all of the options except offline website data and site preferences), because it worked fine yesterday, but that didn't help.

If i open firefox in safemode, it works fine. If i the pages in chrome it also works fine. No idea what i did to make this suddenly happen. Hopefully you can help me fix this really annoying problem, i refuse to re-install and set things up from scratch, because it should just work and i didn't do anything.

Hi there,

For some reason, it seems like Firefox is not loading the font-policy of the websites. I noticed that since the websites I'm used to visiting every day look different now, and I can see that the right font is displayed when using an other browser. Do you have any idea what could cause that?

Twitter shares my location with every post I make. I did not allow them to have my location. I experimented and put in another state in the Twitter profile. It still shared my true location. I typed about:config in URL bar, then found geo enabled and set it to false. Restarted my computer and still twitter gets my data. Mozilla makes such a big deal out of not sharing your info. I was disgusted to see this tricky BS. So what is the real way to get rid of someone tracking you? They use your ISP and mozilla gives them the location of your service provider. Does anyone know of another browser and search engine that does not pull this crap? I read the Chrome, does this too.

my windows7 taskbar: 11+ replicate FF windows w-multiple tabs each is normal use for me. restart FF puts them in new order L to R i can deal with that but would like to be able to restart with these icons staying in the 'same places' because i'm getting old and cranky and forget where i put things more often now.

they're all up there on the taskbar OK but in a different order each time i restart FF. i don't recall locating a Topic similar, or seeing a likely category from Options.

i'm not in a Rush, but have found FF help questions successfully answered in the past. thanks for helping.
