Since up date on 3rd Nov, I have been having problems. I cannot make a google search or open Facebook as I get an insecure certificate notice. However, I am able to open other https sites, such as Hotmail. I have tried adjusting the clock, rebooting.

In addition, all the web pages and passwords saved in options have disappeared. I have relied on this for storing my passwords.

Mozilla Portable. Mostly everything is fine with text on pages but Disqus comments have empty spaces instead of text. Also email subscription and push notification popups can have the same effect. Modal window but no text. I tried the tips found in this support forum (sandbox something value 2 or 1 or 0) — didn't help. Note: in screenshot text won't show but hyperlinked text (active URL) was shown correctly (hidden by black marker) If you can help somehow I would really appreciate it!

Like it says on the tin.

reCaptcha is not working for me on any site.

I either get stuck in endless clicking on picutre loops or it gives an error that "Cannot contact reCAPTCHA. Check your connection and try again."

I'm running the Firefox 63.0.1 (64-bit) with 3 addons. Adblock Plus, Image block (yes it's disabled for the site) and Simple tab groups.

I've tried disabling all the addons except simple tab groups. With 7 groups and about 200 tabs, that's not an option right now.

If keep trying it may eventually work, sometimes it takes 10 min or so of trying, more often I give up and move to chrome for the site I'm tryign to access.

Dear Whomever,

I am so damn sick of this bullshit browser it is not funny. Isn’t it just grand that the almighty Firefox doesn’t work for all websites while Internet Explorer has no trouble or problems whatsoever?

Hello, everyone,

I have a question for the community. Is the memory usage of Firefox normal (see appendix)? Most of the time the memory consumption is even higher.

I use MAC and have about 20-25 tabs open.

Thanks for your help.

Ok. I'm about ready to vote with my feet. I've been on Firefox for years. But I'm tired of updates every week or two - and annoying reminders several times a day. This is beyond intrusive.

Please:

1) Cut down on the number of useless, unnecessary updates.

2) Give the option to disable them.

Does anyone ELSE have FireFox shut down (just refuses to work) when you refuse to do the upgrade?

Every week - EVERY week, I get notification that I need to upgrade FireFox. If I refuse to do the upgrade, FireFox refuses to work after about 4-5 days. The longer I go before I bow to the pressure, the LESS FireFox actually WORKS. Right now, I'm trying to read an email message. FireFox has basically shut down OTHER than this page. Anything else? Nope. I am seriously considering going back to the despised IE. I hate Windows, but this is SO ANNOYING! Shouldn't I have ANY say as to whether or not I WANT to upgrade? Because I am denied that choice. I either DO it, or FireFox will refuse to work. Thanks loads. Every upgrade, I spend DAYS getting things back to where I want them. I just get them right and I get notice of ANOTHER upgrade. Why not wait until you get it RIGHT??????

After several updates to Firefox, and after importing old bookmarks after replacing a drive, I now have a problem organizing my bookmarks. When I open the "show your bookmarks" tab, I see my long time collection of bookmarks in a folder named "imported", there are now TWO other folders marked "Other bookmarks" and now when I bookmark a site it is being stored in a "Library" folder.

  I need to know how I can organize all these bookmarks into a single bookmarks folder so that I can organize them properly, eliminate unnecessary folders, and once again CHOOSE which folder I want to store them in!  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!  Using Windows 7 ultimate, 64-bit

Firefox was updated to 63.0.1. Now, the volume keys (F10, F11, F12) on my Mac (10.11.6) no longer work in any program. In firefox, they are shortcuts to pull up the web developer three pane inspector. I want to turn off/disable the inspector/debugger/devtools/ whatever is responsible for this window that I will never use. I could not disable this function in preferences or change the function of the F10-12 keys. I tried turning off the tool in about:config. Searched "devtools.*.enabled", "devtools.inspector", "debugger.*.enabled" and changed "true" values to "false". F10 and F11 are no longer shortcut keys but F12 brings up the pane (in my ass). How do I turn off these devtools so I can use the volume keys in Firefox and other programs?

Hi there, While working on a sound effects site, I somehow downloaded malware to my Mac. Now, every time I do a google search (in the address bar, and also in the google search bar, which I've since just removed), the google search results no longer come up. Instead, I'm redirected to a search engine called: http://search.primeinfospot.com/?tp1=dbc19016-3c27-4231-bf81-d50a9c367fda&kw=sarch

Going through my search history when this happened, it seems it came out of this "Browser Update" (here's the start of the site, removing all the gobbly gook that followed it but maybe but don't click on it to be safe?)

https://www.logicalplatforms.com/

I've tried simply adjusting my firefox settings. restoring default but firefox seems to think this is my default. any ideas on how to remove this and insure it's not doing other bad things to my comptuer? thanks!
