For years I use Mozilla products Firefox and Thunderbird with great satisfaction. Recently I installed both on a new windows 10 laptop. When being on any given website I click on an e-mail adress, it does not open in Thunderbird. Instead I obtain a popup window with several options, but not Thunderbird. How do I solve this ? Thank you.

Hello There,

I have been trying to figure out why videos that are embedded on certain sites do not show up on Firefox however they show up in Chrome?

I've gone through everything listed here:

and

A few key notes, even when in safe mode, the video problem still persists. But only on specific websites (squarespace sites). I can see videos through websites like Zoom, Shaw Bluewave, youtube, etc etc. But for some reason on this one site I can't get videos to display to play. Yet when I go to Chrome it's there and fine. So it's an issue with Firefox. I'm not sure how to fix it at this point.

I've unchecked Use recommended performance settings. I've switched the default theme I've disabled extensions (which fixed another issue of not displaying images) I've refreshed Firefox I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox I've checked all my graphics drives (they're all there and working)

At this point I'm not sure what to do. Can you please let me know if you have any recommendations?

Cheers Chantal

I think this is a bug, but thought I'd ask here first.

On FireFox 76.0.1, Windows 10, 64 bit

This is not resolving (names changed for privacy)

none

The URL resolves correctly when used alone. Clicking View Image on the browser right mouse menu on the alt ('none') link also resolves correctly. According to the dev console Network tab, it's not even trying to access the specified URL, and hovering over it on the Inspector tab reports "Cannot load image"

The page containing that image definition works correctly in Chrome, Edge beta, and Opera.

Thanks! Dan

I have been trying all day to access Facebook. I keep getting the following message:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.facebook.com. The server uses key pinning (HPKP) but no trusted certificate chain could be constructed that matches the pinset. Key pinning violations cannot be overridden.

Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_KEY_PINNING_FAILURE

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

My main question is, has Facebook been notified of this problem? FYI, I have even tried (yuch) Chrome and Edge and get similar message. I will supply screen shot.

Adobe Flash no longer works for all my flash sites. All I get is a black box. From the sounds, the games are running normal, but all I see is a black box. Stupid Microsoft Edge runs them OK. I tried uninstalling with adobe's uninstall, uninstalling it with the control panel, re-installing flash, Clearing caches and cookies. This started about 1-2 weeks ago. I think it was after either a Firefox or Flash update, I don't remember which. I am current with Windows 10, Firefox, and Flash. Have tried to find a way to go back to an older Flash install, but Adobe makes it difficult to do so. Also can't change settings, as the settings menus might be working, but I can't see them in the black rectangle to do it.

Any ideas, other than the usual reload Firefox and / or profiles that they almost always suggest ? I don't want to spend a month in about:config trying to re-do all my settings ! Especially as it may not help !

I've got a local HTML file that I use as a home page and I'd like to replace the new tab page with it as well. The recent update (76), have broken my previous method of doing this. I did this using an autoconfig file described by user cor-el's answers to the same question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1251199.

After the recent update, my browser fails to read the .cfg on startup and tells me that each time I open Firefox ('failed to read the configuration file'). For transparency, the code in that .cfg file looks like this:

// Do not remove this comment

var {classes:Cc,interfaces:Ci,utils:Cu} = Components;

var newTabURL = "file:///path-to-my-page/index.html";

aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService);

aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

Not sure how to put that in a code format on this forum. If anyone has any idea why the recent changes have broken this or a way to fix it, I'd appreciate it.

Edit: I've figured out it fails on the last line, as commenting that out causes it to no longer fail to read the config file. Can you not set the newTabURL anymore? Has it been renamed to something else?

OK, I'm beyond frustrated with this. I have my passwords saved in firefox. For the first time EVER when I click on the little eyeball to see my pasword for a particular site (tools/options/privacy&security/saved logins), a pop-up box comes up saying "windows security Mozilla firefox verify your identity to reveal the saved Password" and I'm asked for a username and password. NONE of them work. I can 'log in' to firefox, change my picture, change my password, etc., etc., etc. BUT I can't successfully get that F&**%&$ box to accept anything. and it LOCKS EVERYTHING when that box is up. I can't switch to a different tab, I can't move the browser window. I am allowed to move the verification box within the browser window. I can't take a screenshot of it because it locks that capability out. H.E.L.P.!!! What is it really asking for because it sure isn't my username and password for any account I have ever had....because I think I've tried them all in every combination.... Thank you!!!

I have downloaded and installed the actual Firefox to the new computer under the ugly Windows 10. Now I want to take all the settings and history from the good old computer under Windows 7 to the new one. Both personal computers are connected via a router (Fritzbox). While installing on the new computer Firefox offered to synchronize settings et cetera with a second device, and asked for the mobile telefone number. Another device was not offered. Is there a solution or have I to transfer all data by hand?


PS: I am 77 years old and my eyes are not so good anymore. That's why I don´t use a smartphone
