This is not a question. It is a complaint. I can't see anywhere else to lodge it.

I am on a mac mini. I keep getting "Secure connection failed and Firefox did not connect" on secure government sites and others that I know are just fine. I'm sick of it. This did not happen till recently and I have not changed my settings or preferences for over a year.

When I get this message these days, guess what I do - I switch browsers. I would like to keep using Firefox. I like it. However, I get this message on too many sites to put up with it any longer. If it isn't adjusted in the next update, I will strongly consider switching browsers permanently.

Even Safari allows me to continue to the site - certificate or no certificate. Blocking me from the site is ridiculous. Fix it.

While I am browsing on a site I find that Yahoo will suddenly pop up without having been requested to do so. It also happens when I go from one page of a given site to another. This happens on most sites and I am about to "ditch" Firefox, since it does not occur when I use Safari.

Since updating to version 66.0.1, I keep getting signed out of accounts. I have been signed out from bank accounts websites, email accounts and various periodicals I subscribe to. It's happened on numerous occasions. I am able to sign back into them without any issues but it's a nuisance especially when I go to check email.

I used to use Pocket back when it was a simple addon. I used it without ever registering, with syncing disabled.

I only do two things with it: (1) add something to my reading list, and (2) view my reading list and select something to read. I don't want syncing, I do want privacy.

Now that it comes with firefox, seems like there's no option to use it without registering. (Sounds like a regression to me). Or is there?

Please help me someone. For awhile now when I am on Yahoo's home page 75% of what is on the page will not open up. It shows that there is something there like a empty space with nothing in it, and just nothing ever happens. Pretty much any other webpage is fine but Yahoo is a problem... What gives?

Usually when I open Firefox I have my Optimum homepage. Now I have a folder with a tab that says "New Tab". I contacted Optimum to be sure I had a connection and I do. I was unable to type their address in the bar - it is inactive. Sometimes when I move the cursor around the homepage jumps in but the topics in the line above do not respond. Thank you in advance for your help.

I create bunches of related bookmarks within each folder, each set off by separations. For the first time, I sorted by key words, and when I switched back to site name/my manual sort, all the work was gone. It's all sorted by alpha now. I assume that can't be undone, but I'm holding out hope.
