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.

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!

Firefox updated with CentOS 7 machine update -- bookmarks and help menu are there but clicking does nothing.

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.

Multiaccount Containers Addon Downloading But Not Appearing In Toolbar in Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04

And neither is the Temporary Containers Addon. I just did fresh brand new initial Firefox install on both the most updated version of Windows 10 and the most recent version of Ubuntu 20.04. All addons appear in the toolbar except these 2. I've tried installing these 2 first. I've tried installing them last, then disabling all the other addons, uninstalling them and reinstalling them. Nothing will make them appear in the toolbar, yet they appear as enabled when they display under the addons > extensions. Also, hitting the extension shortcuts will not bring up the addon interaction screen for any of the addons, e.g. Ctrl U or Ctrl <period> or whatever the relevant shortcut command is. This appears to only be an issue with FRESH Firefox install, because on my other computer running Windows 10 I've had the Multiaccount Containers Addon in the toolbar for 6 months without issue through many older versions of Firefox; and after I updated (rather than fresh install) to this latest version the Multiaccount Containers Addon remains in the toolbar without issue.

Can anyone suggest how I can get theMultiaccount Containers Addon and Temporary Containers Addon to appear in the toolbar? And why are none of the extension shortcuts working - could I be executing them on the wrong screen? I've been trying them on the Addons > Extensions screen.

Firefox won't load my Google profile on a Blogspot site I read, so I cannot leave comments, which I used to be able to do. I can go to this site via Internet Explorer, and that does work -- my google profile loads right up and I can post comments. What do I need to change in Firefox so that my google profile can be seen by this site?
