For years I have visited the website of worldwide famous newspaper from my Windows PC using FIREFOX. Now, on a visit to friends, my Android device with FF v.68 refuses entry, telling me that the connection is untrustworthy. I am using a private WiFi connection that is testing as safe and functions well. How can I get this connection to bcome acceptable? The usual 'I accept the risks' click-on is not displayed.

Linux 7.8.2003. Just did yum update. Firefox was updated. My customization (menu bar on) was OK. Running it, my bookmarks appear as before, but clicking on one, nothing happens. Ditto Help menu, where I tried to see Firefox version number. Just now, I tried again, by accident holding mouse button down instead of clicking on Bookmarks or Help, move pointer to desired option, release button. This amazingly works. So I can tell you version of Firefox is 68.7.Oesr (64-bit). (I usually use NoScript, but disabled it for this test, same result.) I am sending this help request from a different machine, so did not click Share Data.

German classifieds site's listings chronological order is mixed up

Firefox mixes eBay Kleinanzeigen's listings in a higgledy-piggledy order. One the first page (20 or so listings), it's mostly correct but going back further from 'now', some of yesterday's listings are mixed in with today's and for today's earlier listings pop up between later ones. It just seems FF fails to read their database correctly. I've tried with all add-ons disabled but it still happens. It's been going on for a week or so. The same URL displayed in Chrome doesn't have that problem. Thanks!

Each time I watch a movie on my video streaming website I get an error message in a yellow notification bar ("the clearkey plugin has crashed" -- translation), and there is no issues with video playback. How can I automatically get rid of this bar (other than by clicking "close this message"), which sticks on the top of the window even in full screen mode?

We currently would like to upgrade our centrally installed Firefox ESR version and would like users to keep their settings and be disrupted minimally. Specifically we would like to upgrade from 68.4.2 to the current 68.8.

I am aware that as of Firefox 67 a dedicated profile version is used for each Firefox version (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/dedicated-profiles-firefox-installation).

I had assumed that as it is only a minor upgrade of the same ESR version a new profile would not be necessary, however it creates a new empty profile by default.

The suggested solution to use Firefox Sync is not an option as creating Firefox Sync accounts for all our users would even be more overhead.

Is it indended behaviour that new profiles are created for the same ESR (major) version? Is there a simple way to migrate existing profiles?

Thanks.
