I can't connect to all sites, the error code is "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER", can you help me?

I currently use FF version 63.0.3 on Windows 10, I have tried removing cert8.db, running FF in safe mode, even reinstalling FF, but it still didn't work. I also only use SMADAV and Windows Defender as antivirus. Only the official Mozilla site can be accessed.

As i recall, this problem started when I accidentally switched to a site. Could you help me?

And sorry if my grammar is bad, English is not my first language.

For many years, clicking the sidebar icon has opened a menu of bookmarks. Now, suddenly, it’s a History sidebar. I want the Bookmarks sidebar, based on bookmarks.html, back! Closing and reopening the sidebar, restarting Firefox, restarting the computer, don’t help.

I use Firefox bookmarks, organized in folders and subfolders and including many local PDF and HTML files, to organize my life! HELP!!

If it’s relevant, I have set browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML and browser.tabs.LoadBookmarksInTabs to ’true’. The preference browser.bookmarks.file is set to ’bookmarks.HTML’ in my Documents folder, where it is automatically backed up by the product Box Sync,

I have enabled the add-on ’Default Bookmark Folder’.

I am using 63.0.3. All of a sudden, whenever I right-click on an image and select "Save image as," when the dialog box appears, the "Save as type" field is greyed out. This doesn't happen in Chrome, so it is not my computer.

When I logged in on this site (https://0920921b.index-education.net/pronote/eleve.html), I saved my password but it didn't worked and I had to rewrite it every time. I imported it from google chrome and it worked. Some days ago, I changed this password and when I clicked on "update password", it didn't worked another time and I had to update it on chrome and then import it to firefox. Is firefox or the website not working ? My other firefox saved logins are working so I guess that is the site but it works with chrome so ... Thanks

My Amazon and PayPal accounts were recently hacked, apparently using Firefox Password Manager. I've since changed the passwords for the accounts in question and also enabled a password for Firefox. Attached is a redacted version of the hacking session. I have a few questions.

1) If someone's accessed my decrypted Firefox password file, should I assume every saved password has been compromised?

2)How do I get a list of all these sites if I do need to change the passwords on all or many of them?

3) Is there any way to tell if this attack was launched from inside my apartment or remotely? I think I know the DNS ip of my home system at the time.

Your help is much appreciated.

Firefox won't open and only gives me the crash reporting window. I'm on a mac with mojave (this started about a week after that was installed). I have tried starting in safe mode, creating a new profile, and multiple fresh downloads and installs. Nothing works. This has been going on for a few weeks.

The last crash report only says "1543632621". Previous crash reports are similarly empty with only a number.

Headers and footers for web pages printed normally until recently. On the printer's header and footer settings, the header includes document title and URL, and the footer includes page # of # and date/time. The screen showing the document as it will be printed shows headers and footers. However, recently the printer started printing headers and footers at the extreme top and bottom of the page, such that only a very narrow band of each appears at the edge of the page and is unreadable. What do I need to do to restore the printing of headers and footers to be readable? I have Firefox 63.0.3 running on Windows 7.

I recently began monitoring my internet traffic and found that two programs were downloading hundreds of megabytes of data, often when I was not actively doing anything on the internet. Those programs were OpenVPN Daemon and Firefox. This behavior is burning my already expensive bandwidth and I have no clue as to what is being downloaded, why, or where it is going.

Is there a way to stop this behavior?

After allowing Firefox to do a refresh, and losing my bookmarks as a result, I followed the instructions I found elsewhere in this forum to restore the bookmarks. I successfully located the backup file, and I can get all the way through converting the *.jsonlz4 file to *.html, but when I try to import the *.html file through the library menu, nothing happens, and nothing changes. I can open the *.html file locally, and see a list of my bookmarks, and they are functional, but the are not incorporated or saved back into Firefox. The address bar looks like this:

file:///C:/Users/kwilliams/Desktop/bookmarks_from_json.html

Is there a way to re-incorporate the bookmarks? At this point, I am faced with clicking on each link on the html list and creating new bookmarks one entry at a time.

Starting this morning, whenever I click on a link on www.nytimes.com, a pop-up appears that says "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved." and requires that I either click "Stay on Page" or "Leave Page". I have never seen this before and it only seems to happen on www.nytimes.com. Has anyone else had this issue? If so, how can I make it go away? Is there something that may have changed in Firefox Preferences with the most recent update? See attached screen shot.

Hi - hope someone can help with this, I've been having an issue over the last few days where Firefox on my PC always startsup with the Microsoft homepage (https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/). It's not a massive inconvenience but a bit puzzling, and I'd like to get to the bottom of why this is happening.

It's a custom build PC, quite bare-bones, and Firefox has been running fine for over a year. I had some notifications from Windows Defender about a Trojan, Foretype.A!ml - this has been quarantined and deleted as far as I can tell. Not sure how relevant this is, but the Firefox problem started at around the same time, which worries me.

What I've tried:

1) Restore homepage

2) Checked the 'target' of the Firefox icon

3) Uninstalled & reinstalled Firefox

4) Used 'about:config' and edited the <browser.startup.page> to zero, and <browser.startup.homepage> is 'about:home'

5) Used the command line 'firefox -ProfileManager', tried a clean profile.

None of this seems to work. So... any ideas? Thanks in advance! Chris
