It used to be I could tell Firefox to erase all cookies each time I leave the programme (i.e. close all tabs). Now I cannot find any more where I can opt for this (necessary) feature. How do I tell Firefox to erase all cookies when I close it? If that is no longer possible, who can I write to at Mozilla to complain (and please, you should complain as well)?

After updating to Firefox 61(Windows 10 64bit), I faced with some problem. I am using two displays with different scaling: first master with scaling 125%, second additional with scaling 100%. Resolution of both displays is 1920:1080. When I maximezed the firefox window on the second display white rectangle in first two tabs and panel below appeared.

If I set equal scaling 100% or 125% on both displays , problem disappear.

A couple of days ago, Mozilla updated my Firefox browser on my Windows laptop. While the rest of it works fine and I'm still cookied in to everything, I can no longer access my Gmail account - I get a response saying 'secure connection failed' with the following error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG. I also can't use the Google search function when I open a new browser window, although it does seem to work when I go to the Google homepage.

Any suggestions?

I have checked her browser against mine (downloaded latest version of the browser from the site last week, after a total hard drive replacement) and the settings seem the same on ll side menu items. She is getting this notice virtually every time she opens a browser page or visits a site.

Firefox is her default browser. Her laptop is running Windows 7.

She is getting extremely upset over this.

I love Firefox; it's fast and user friendly. Unfortunately it doesn't work well with my company's proxy server. My company has 160,000+ staff and I am unlikely to be able to get the IT department to change it's policies. They only officially support IE (really!). We are allowed to use Firefox, but our IT department don't support it, actively discourage it's use, and do not test the company security proxy server with Firefox. In the fine print of one internal support document they give a link to a certificate that allows Firefox to work, but this certificate has to be re-installed when Firefox is updated. I am concerned that pretty soon I won't be able to use Firefox at all if Firefox doesn't work out how to work better with proxy servers. Firefox needs to be able to load any website that IE can load (unless it uses flash and other malware).
