Lately when I attempt to download any pdf file I get the 'file name'.pdf with 'failed' as the result (when I check the Download icon on the FF status bar). I looked in my download directory and I found these 'failed' .pdf files with 0 KB and also some files (same name).pdf.part. I changed the file extension (deleted .part) to .pdf and the files would open in Acrobat. Nobody likes inconsistent problems, but occasionally a pdf will download normally!! But it fails more than it works. Using FF 102.0 (64-bit)

I use Firefox on both my Windows10 and Pop!_OS desktop (I dual boot). On my Windows install, every time I boot Windows, I have to toggle off "Recommended by Pocket" on the new tab page. It does not stay toggled off on its own when I next boot Windows. I always completely shut my computer down.

I have been watching videos on paramountplus through firefox for over a year. Last week, they stopped playing at all. I can navigate the paramounplus website just fine and I am not getting any error messages, the videos simply don't start when i hit play. I spoke with support at paramountplus and they said it was because I wasn't using chrome as my browser. I did download chrome (reluctantly) with the agent on the phone and the videos played just fine. I have not made any adjustments to my computer or installed any new programing. Everything is exactly as it was when the videos were playing fine through firefox. Any ideas?

Hi,

When I type a search query into the address bar on any Facebook Group and press enter nothing happens. I need to try 2-3 times (sometimes more).

I've tried clearing cache, removing all data, program files, re-installed, but this didn't make any difference. Same on Firefox Developer. Microsoft Edge works.

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50GHz 2.70 GHz Installed RAM: 8,00 GB Edition: Windows 10 Home Single Language OS build 19043.1766

I have discovered a problem with Firefox updates when opening a Kaspersky Safe Money browser session.

In Firefox, Tools - Settings, Firefox Updates, it shows Firefox is being updated by another instance and the option to Check for Updates has been greyed out (screenshot attached).

When you use the Help, About Firefox option it also says that Firefox is being updated by another instance (see screenshot attached).

When you check the same Settings in the Safe Money 2nd session, it shows exactly the same information and you cannot update Firefox in any session.

In previous versions of Firefox, when you opened a 2nd session it said that Firefox was being updated by another instance and the option to Check for Updates was greyed out but you could still update Firefox in the main session.

This is not a problem when using Chrome or Edge so it must be related to Firefox so can anyone suggest anything to fix this or does it need Tech Support to look into it for fixing?

Thanks.

Hello,

I lost my bookmarks when I changed my password. Can Firefox recover them on its servers? I've seen many similar complaints arising from similar problems. One would think that Firefox would address this issue to improve the user experience.

Hi I have a problem playing videos available on skynews.com.au where the white rotating dots within the black circle just keep rotating and loading does not occur. I assume this to be a result of a setting problem because it does not occur on another browser on my desktop computer.

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

I appreciate that there is a ton of functional tools working well and that there are an equal number of problems backlogged, and I appreciate all the good hard work and the genuine help that is done. Having said that,

WHY IN THE HELL HAS MY HISTORY BEEN HIJACKED? I am forced to use fOOGLE fHROME by UNINTELLIGENT FORCES but I use FIREFOX FOR A HANDFUL OF IMPORTANT THINGS. I need to revisit a VERY IMPORTANT WEBSITE LAST VISITED a few months ago, which should be easily spotted but when I OPENED MY HISTORY AND CAN ONLY SEE MOUNTAINS OF fOOGLE GARBAGE.

I read that you guys went corporate, but I didn't think you would sell out to fOOGLE. You used to be the best. Now you are subservient to the worst. It's a damn shame; no wonder everyone is losing trust in Foxzilla.

Now I'm forced to waste this time (a second time, as I was stupid enough to click on Share Data below which wiped out my previously more polite comment/question).

Because many websites ignore my choice of a dark theme (both in Windows and in Firefox) I tried using color management in my Firefox Settings to force white text on a black background. This had the desired effect on websites, but unfortunately also applies to plug-ins, some of which (like uMatrix) depend on changes of background color to convey information or have dark icons which become invisible on the dark background. Is there any way I can have my cake and eat it too?
