"Upon further investigation between your screenshot, mine and another server I completed, I believe I might have the answer. Firefox does not natively support cipher suite encryption levels above SHA. The server having the issues has the SHA suite completely disabled leaving 256bit keys and above enabled, even with the AES 128 wrapper on a couple of the suites. I will make this change tonight and verify if this is the answer."

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1121392

This is related to this question above. Has firefox released an update to this yet? Do they support sipher suite encryption levels above SHA1? Our company's website has to be PCI compliant and since meeting PCI standards, we get a "Secure Connection Failed" error only in firefox when loading our site.

Version 62.0b3 (64-bit) (Mac)

To reproduce:

1. Go to a website that performs xhr reqs (i.e. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop) 2. CMD + SHIFT + I to open dev tools > Network Tab 3. Either right click on the xhr req and choose edit & resend or one left click then click edit and resend (as shown in screenshot).

PS: it works fine in FireFox; iow, it shows a window to modify req then resending it.

PSS: can you add a resent option (beside the edit & resend)?? Makes it a lot easier when debugging

Search redirected to Yahoo instead of using Google

Hi,

A bit of an odd one this I think. Have already read all the other threads regarding search problems and pretty sure this isn't the same thing at all.

No matter what I type into the URL / search box it first very quickly flashes up with a Google link (which is what I have set in my preferences for Firefox [I'm using the Developer Edition] to use) then it redirects to Yahoo and uses their search instead.

I have checked all plugins / extensions in Firefox and there are none installed that would do anything like this.

Luckily I was able to halt the browser from performing the redirect so I copied the URL that shows before being redirected to Yahoo.

This is the sort of URL that I am getting :

https://www.google.com/search?q=dog&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b-ab

Notice the &client=firefox-b-ab at the end. If I take that off the end of the URL then it searches as it should do with Google however with me not changing the URL (which happens automatically as soon as I type something in to search) then it redirects to Yahoo which leads me to believe that Google is redirecting Firefox based upon the fact that it is Firefox?

Why they would do that is utterly beyond me though?

Thanks for any help with this as I'd really love to be able to get back to having Google as my default search engine again as soon as possible.

Best wishes,

Mark

Hi all,

I've got a really weird problem. I love FF's address bar and really frequently use it to go to my favorite sites really quickly. R is immediately autocompleted to say 'reddit.com' so all I have to do is click-R-enter and I'm there. The weird thing is, since a few days ago, the bar doesn't do this for all sites. Just now, I typed in 'map' and maps.google.com shows up in the suggestions as #1, but it doesn't autocomplete to fill it in for me. It used to do that just fine. It's really weird. I've already renamed that json file to reset all settings, but that didn't do anything for me.

Would appreciate any help. I'm on 62.0b5.

Thanks!

Mark

Since Firefox is has become such a badly broken piece of garbage and seems to require constant troubleshooting nowadays, it would be nice if you included a way to quickly disable all addons at once, not one at a time, and not having to close down and restart — just a way to turn them off so I could make sure the problem is with the web page, or with Firefox being fundamentally broken, and not with one of my small handful of addons. The easier you make troubleshooting, the more time we can spend actually browsing the web and getting our work done.

For instance, if you're trying to buy a bus ticket, as I am right now, your time is much more productively spent actually buying the bus ticket, rather than wasting hours troubleshooting Firefox to try and figure out why the bus ticket website doesn't work in firefox when it works properly in every single other browser. Being able to turn addons on and off easily would help in this. I had thought opening a private window would turn the addons off for that window so I could go about my business and just get the consarned ticket bought, but after being unable to figure out how to make that happen I did some googling and it seems this feature was helpfully removed from newer versions of firefox. That would have been a nice thing to keep. Browsers with better features are better. Worse or missing features, not as good.

EDIT: Okay, seems I didn't quite look thoroughly enough before asking this, apparently an add-on for "Ninja Download Manager" was causing problems. Please disregard this question, I apologize for wasting anyone's time.

For some reason, a lot of my downloads end up with strange names and without a file extension. For example:

If I try to save a PDF file from my university with the following link. https://mylo.X.edu.au/d2l/le/content/235142/topics/files/download/2789744/DirectFileTopicDownload the file gets saved as "DirectFileTopicDownload" (that is part of the link, it has not been replaced or changed like the X has).

Alternatively, when I try to download executable files, often I end up with a string of numbers and letters which Im fairly certain is related to the files in question, though I can't tell how ( a quick google search of the string tends to lead to a related site etc.). FOr example, when trying to download a companion app for the firefox extention VideoDownloadHelper, i get the extension-less file "c036135a-7faa-11e8-87ad-cc9be00dd6d8"

I would appreciate any help in this matter, bearing in mind I have reinstalled Firefox once already.

I find the way of finding the correct bookmark folder quite cumbersome. What do you think about adding a folder search to the bookmark dialog?

In addition, if I have the following bookmark folder structure:

  • Folder A
    • My Folder
  • Folder B
    • My Folder

The bookmark dialog will display My Folder twice, without me having a chance to distinguish the two. Maybe we can think about some sort of breadcrumb mechanism, or just a tooltip that tells me where that folder sits.

FFq 62.0b9 64bit w10pro. When I open in this FF, a monthly bank statement, the built-in pdf viewer shows only underscores/check boxes/lines. I download the pdf (open w/pdf app) and all data is present. I go to same bank w/chrome, view bank statement online in chrome builtin pdf viewer & all data is visible. I restart FFq w/addons disabled and the problem recurs (no data), so it's not an (apparent) add-on. This is an issue new to me, but it wasn't a problem last fiscal quarter when I last "went to the bank" and viewed the pdf online in FFq. I did brief search here & did not find this issue addressed. Thanks.

I am a subscriber and want to watch Sling TV on my desktop Windows 10 PC using Firefox 62.0b10 (64-bit).

I open the Sling.com website, sign in and see a big blue button that says "Watch Now". When I press it I am taken to a Microsoft.com page ( https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/sling-tv/9nblggh4x7wp?rtc=1&activetab=pivot%3aoverviewtab ) that is devoted to Sling TV. I then press the big blue "Get" button and get a Firefox.exe pop-up window with the following text:

"This file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action. Please install an app or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Apps Settings page."

I am totally UN-technical. What am I missing here? Does Firefox need an app? If so, which one? Where do I get it? I just want to watch Sling on my PC.

Hi, as I remember, in earlier versions of Firefox I could have a list of websites in the options menu, which were loaded during startup. Now I cant find this anymore, instead there is an option "Restore previous session". Is this correct? I would very much like to have the previous option. Thanks, Hans-Hermann
