HTTPS overkill by Firefox

Later version refuses to connect to my modem, and goes into security web mode. This modem uses HTTP/HTTPS for access, i.e., connects directly it's IP address, then the user enters a username and password. At that point, the the modem switches to HTTPS for control.

With this recent update, there is NO WAY to access the modem for any work, or upgrade the HTTPS certificate on the modem. This is a BUG.

What should happen is that if the web site will accept a HTTP connection, Firefox should NOT refuse connection or test for security issues UNTIL the user or the device switches to HTTPS.

As an aside, I've used Firefox on this Zywall modem for years until recently.

So to cut it short, i have an issue with not just firefox but almost all other browsers too. I have tried Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Edge. Both Firefox and Chrome will instantly close when i open them. As in, the window will open and immediately close after barely half a second. This has happened with Chrome and Firefox, yet Opera and Edge dont seem to have this issue. I am a Firefox user normally so this does make it a little annoying. Any ideas on why that is?

i had to rebuild my laptop computer and set up firefox on it, set up/turned on sync and the browser does NOT match the broswer srttings on the desktop where the sync comes from. bookmarked weblink icons only show up when a new tab is opened and vanish once a website is opened, icons for bookmarked weblinks on the bookmarks bar are generic wireframe globe-like-icons only, the custom firefox colour setup i struggled to create over the course of several weeks does not appear at all, nor does the dark theme. how then do i get this to -really- syc???

Why is Firefox suddenly not remembering any of my logins or passwords? When I go into Preferences > Security, the box to "remember logins and passwords for websites" is checked. When I click on saved passwords they all are there. The do you want to save box is there if I have changed a login, or added a new web site. I am not in private browsing mode. The problem seems to happen every time I install the latest Firefox update, or Windows 10 Pro updates. Some of my apps want to know if I am using a new device.

So I just picked up a new laptop (ASUS Vivobook 16x), and everything is fresh on it. Additionally, this only affects some video content in Firefox, with Edge browser unaffected. In brief, what is happening is that within a couple hours of having the browser open, certain video content stops working, specifically Twitter/X videos just spin, YouTube previews stop working, and videos continually load. Netflix videos continue to work, but hover previews stop functioning. I even check the 'Stats for Nerds' on YT and it shows 0 KB network activity in Firefox.

I've tried every basic action I can think of:

  • Turning off extensions (only use Ublock and Bitwarden)
  • Browser Refresh (x3)
  • Reverting from 120.1 to 120.0, and now 199.0.1
  • Clearing the browser cache
  • Reinstalling NVidia and Intel Drivers
  • Running in Safe Mode

Only by doing a refresh or completely closing/opening the app gets videos to function again. This doesn't affect the old laptop or my desktop, which makes me think it's a rogue driver--but then why would Edge function without error over the same period of time?

Are there any settings to play with in the browser that can help diagnose?

bold textWhy is Mozilla Firefox BLOCKING Kaspersky products, especially Kaspersky Password Manager? It has become an continous on-going problem with many,many people using Firefox which will definitely result in Firefox loosing many users.

Is this another USA bigoted anti Russian propaganda SETUP? Kaspersky is without question, the best protection software on the market. It just works, which is more than can be said about Mozilla Firefox.

After restarting my computer last week, I suddenly couldn't reach ANY websites on my computer. I tried changing security settings. I tried deleting Firefox and reinstalling it. Still, to no avail.

I don't have any problem reaching websites via Firefox on my laptop or my mobile devices. I also have no issues with using Google Chrome or Bing.

For some reason, though, I'm suddenly having the same connectivity issue using Zoom, citing Firewall and Proxy issues (I'm a single, home user). I tried turning my security program off, and that didn't help. I also did a scan using the security software and it could find no malware.

I have tried restarting the computer, and powering off and restarting the router. No help.

I'm not sure why I'm suddenly getting this issue with my desktop. I have Dell ProSupport, and while they're trying, they haven't been able to nail anything down.

Any ideas why this would suddenly happen, and only to Firefox? (and, for some reason, the Zoom connectivity?)

Hello Firefox Community,

I hope this message finds you well. I am reaching out regarding my website (Mazterizes), and I am keen to ensure its optimal performance and compatibility with the Firefox browser.

I have noticed "https not valid" when accessing my website through Firefox, and I would appreciate any insights or suggestions on how to address this issue. Additionally, I would like to ensure that my website adheres to best practices for compatibility with Firefox.

If anyone has experience or expertise in troubleshooting compatibility issues or has insights into Firefox-specific optimizations, I would greatly appreciate your input.

Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

After my PC rebooted, firefox will not open unless I rename the EXE to something else.

Steps already taken 1) Refresh firefox 2) reinstall firefox (including after wiping all data from PC) 3) delete parent.lock 4) check Microsoft account - I am NOT content filtering. I am the sole user in my "family" and the app lists me as the organizer. I have zero way to even set UP content filtering.

I am at my wit's end. I can't set it as a default browser because the EXE doesn't match.

Anyone know how to trace what application Firefox refers to at launch regarding, "another application is using the file" message?

Thanks for reading.
