for months we have had a JavaScript popup error message that no one has been able to tell us how to correct the problem with Mozilla Firefox and this JavaScript error message. The popup appears at every startup of our desktop computer. We prefer to use Firefox as our browser, but also had JavaScript before we selected Firefox as our default browser. We do not wish to use any other browser but if some techie can't help us solve this JavaScript error we may be forced to use another browser. --- Error A JacaScript error occurred in the main process

Uncaught exception: Error: Error parsing your configuration file: C:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\HughesNet Usage Meter\ Status-Meter conf]: Unexpected token

Help with this nagging longtime error problem would be greatly appreciated.

In the last week, certain files have refused to start downloading. At first I thought it was just one computer, but it seems my work PC is also affected.

It seems to mainly affect video files, or more complicated files. Trying to download a .webm, .mp4, .gif, .zip, .rar, or .exe does not work. Downloading .jpg, .png, or .txt all work fine.

I am able to get all the files in my downloads list to download by completely quitting out of Firefox, and then opening it again. Firefox sees all the files in my download queue and saves them, no problem.

Could this be some side-effect of a recent Windows/Firefox update (maybe User Account Control getting stricter?) Any ideas to help me get to the bottom of this would be greatly appreciated.


(Before you ask, yes, I have gone through the "I can't download files" steps in the FAQ, all my settings are exactly the same as they were a week ago, when I could download fine)

FF 6303 FAILS to launch iCloud website even in safe mode! All so called FF tips already tried, no viruses, etc. Issue began in FF 63!! Even old IE 11 works!!

Just as the questions states, beginning in FF 63, iCloud fails to launch. I have used FF since it first became a product, so don't insult my intelligence with stupid suggestions - all of which I did before posting this. Even in FF safe mode, iCloud.com fails to launch. See the attached image. Chrome, Sea Monkey - Even tired old IE 11 launches iCloud in seconds; instead of timing out like FF 63 does. I should NOT have to spend an inordinate amount of my unpaid time troubleshooting this product. I will simply move to another browser before I expend hours of my free time fixing Mozilla's problems. When a website won't launch in safe mode on a virus-free system, the issue is Mozilla's !!

Occasionally, on this version 63.0.3 and previous, FireFox creates multiple "New Tabs" when only one is required. It repeatedly creates these "New Tabs" without any keyboard or mouse input. It won't stop until I close FireFox with the "X" in the upper right hand corner.

Any ideas how to fix or prevent this?

Thanks, ed s.

When I try to read a newspaper I cannot open the individual articles, this happened a while ago and I read on the help line how to reset firefox which got most of the sites working since then it has slowly gone back to how it was I can opn about 50% now and do not want to reset firefox as it causes problems in other areas. If I use google I can open all the sites no problem, the other problem I have is if I try to submit a comment to the daily mail is says I have submited but it never appears on the page or in my profile. I am not a complete techy but generally can find my way around with a bit of help.

Web page logins fail in new PC (Win 10) but OK in old PC (Win 7)

Hi I am having problems logging into various web sites with a new windows 10 computer. I can log in from my old PC (Win 7) but not from the new one (Win 10) I use a Firefox account that duplicates all login info on both PCs, so the saved passwords are correct. I have also tried entering manually from my records, but no joy. In some instances (Two found so far) when I click the 'Login' button it takes me back to the user name field, as if I was just starting. (I have sent a request to one these, but they reckon its not them :-) ) On some web sites (eg Bank, ebay and Green energy) it works fine. Very weird!! Any ideas??

Hello, Last week my Firefox browser was working fine, but now for the last couple of days almost every site I go to says "Your connection is not secure The owner of "such and such" has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website." And also I get an error that says: "The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER" I've tried deleting my anti-virus program, McAfee, I've reinstalled Firefox. It did not work. Could it be a computer issue or a wifi issue?? I'm using version 63.0.3

Quantum 63.0.3. Have used 3 different methods for setting breakpoints. Looks like it starts, then resets. Prefs.JS shows "pending-selected-location" with info but never sets. Problem started with previous versions but was intermittent. Now it seems permanent, or haven't yet got it to work.
