Tried uninstall, update, troubleshoot mode, restart, clear cache, malware detect, task mgr, etc. Windows 10 software, drivers, firewall, hardware, memory, etc are ok.

Firefox hangs, no rhyme or reason, random pages, every hour or so.

Am I the only one having issue?

Hello, I am using Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit) on windows 11 Pro

I am unable to search through tags in firefox address bar as explained here in this documentation https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/address-bar-autocomplete-firefox

with that said, the problem is only with "+ tagname" not working, as I am able to filter through bookmarks using "* bookmark" and history and tabs. However, for tag search with "+", firefox doesn't work.

Kindly help,

Here is some additional information I collected based on other similar issues that might help.

Not, sure if the search byTag function is removed from Firefox or not ??

Where I work I use a state corrections inmate search to get stats on our incoming prisoners. I used to be able to look up the name, get the stats, hit the back button and continue on to the next inmate. Recently when I hit the back button and enter the name, I get an error and have to go completely out of the corrections site and start again. I'll ad that this site does use the "I am not a Robot" security. I do not have this problem in Explorer. What happened? I'd prefer to use Firefox as it is much more secure. Thanks

I have installed two dictionaries, "English (United Kingdom)", and "French". However, when I go to check a spelling, (right click/Languages over the suspect word), I am offered a third dictionary choice, "English (United States), which I do not want. I have removed the US dictionary and even the language pack but the menu item persists. I can find no way to get rid of it.

Please advise

Can anyone tell me what I have to do to stop this.

Hi All

I manage my cookies manually as I keep many tabs open permanently. Having to constantly log back in to those accounts would be onerous if cookies were deleted on close of browser. Managing this via manually adding the website exceptions function is also a drag.

Would it be possible to have a 'keep cookie list' that are saved when the browser is closed?

Hi,

I recently created a new profile in Firefox as I regularly do, as a consequence I found that the "Page Setup" menu option has been removed in a past release.

I can't fathom why this has been removed, I "print" plenty of PDF's and like to customise the Headers/Footers based on what I'm "printing".

Searching for a fix suggests either installing a 3rd Party Add-on or "hacking" the "about:config". This is not user friendly in the slightest for something that has been around for literal decades.

Forcing a user to install an Add-on or even go through "about:config" and set "print.show_page_setup_menu" to true is bonkers!

Yes, bonkers!

Please restore the "Page Setup" option as default, please don't remove it or stealth hide it.

Sincerely,

Jay

When I start a private window on FireFox, that same private window still has all the browsing history attached to my "normal" FireFox windows.

Ideally, I'd like to start Private Mode and have FireFox start from "zero": No access to past browsing data.

Is there a setting that allows for this?

Hello, I've tried to use google but Firefox won't let me. I have no Idea how to fix this, but had the same problem yesterday and it went away automaticly and now it's back again. Does someone know how to fix this problem permanently?

"Kein Verbindungsversuch unternommen: Mögliches Sicherheitsproblem

Firefox hat ein mögliches Sicherheitsrisiko erkannt und daher www.google.com nicht aufgerufen, denn die Website benötigt eine verschlüsselte Verbindung.

Was können Sie dagegen tun?

www.google.com verwendet eine Sicherheitstechnologie namens "HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS)", durch welche Firefox nur über gesicherte Verbindungen mit der Website verbinden darf. Daher kann keine Ausnahme für die Website hinzugefügt werden.

Am wahrscheinlichsten wird das Problem durch die Website verursacht und Sie können nichts dagegen tun.

Falls Sie sich in einem Firmennetzwerk befinden oder Antivirus-Software einsetzen, so können Sie jeweils deren IT-Support kontaktieren. Das Benachrichtigen des Website-Administrators über das Problem ist eine weitere Möglichkeit.

Weird thing is, that there clearly is an certificate.

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.


When clicking advanced button there is no way to proceed:

Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.google.com because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

Since I installed Firefox's latest update today Reddit (so far no other sites I frequent have the same issue) displays nothing but an empty white page. You can see the tab load, and the name of the site show up there, but nothing ever displays, not a flicker of color or anything. I've cleared cookies and site data, I've turned the tracking protections off and on, so far nothing I've tried has had any effect. I visited Reddit on another browser and it works fine, so it's clearly a Firefox issue.
