I am receiving junk mail from the following address:flashlights tactical Military herminacagliostroep1715@hotmail.c. When I click on the unsubscribe feature at the bottom I get the following error message that the site is not secure: hyperurl.co uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.smarturl.it, smarturl.it Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

As a result of this message I am not able to unsubscribe from this junk mail and I continue to am receive them daily. It is my hope that you will address this issue on a general level as it is a tactic these companies are using to effectively disallow individuals using their right to refuse junk mail

Thank you so much. Sincerely, Anne Marie Kitz

Any time a page won't load it is with a sense of inevitability that I notice t.co in the address. It is happening across all my devices, but specifically my macbook and imac where I use firefox.

There is no error message, just a blank page that stops trying to load. This has been going on for weeks now and it's really tiresome. Reboot, update, all the basic tricks haven't changed anything. Running Yosemite 10.10.5 with the latest version of firefox.

It has also been paralleled (as far as I can tell) with slower loading of pages in general, freezing of pages for several seconds, tabs freezing when I try to click between them and very jerky scrolling. I've used firefox for years but I can't put up with this for much longer.

And I'm not sure if it's related, but I cannot confirm my disqus account as that page won't load either.

I've gone to Preferences and changed the default home page a dozen times today and it keeps coming back. I see other people who've encountered this problem (for me at least) say "Problem soled." Well, my problem isn't.

Please advise.

I was very upset on updating to firefox quantum to see that I could not disable tabbed browsing. How can you do this in the new firefox? To anticipate responses: For all those who are as arrogant as the google chrome developers and say that opposition to tabs is legacy behaviour they do not want to support, I can only express my disgust. The tab bar takes up valuable screen real estate. If you have a visual impairment and need magnified text, losing the pixels really hurts easy browsing.

Tried everything. Only this one site will not play video with Firefox. Never had this problem until yesterday after I updated Java.

I've refreshed firefox, uninstalled all plugins, reinstalled TWICE. Disabling plugins like adblock do not resolve the issue.

All that displays is a black screen where the video should play.

Video plays on all other sites. Also can play the video on same laptop using safari.

I have Firefox configured to "Use system proxy settings". Problem is that when system proxy settings change it takes Firefox, and it seems only Firefox, ages (if ever, most of the time I have to restart the browser) to get proxy settings refreshed.

Typical scenario is when I come to work from home and vice versa. At home non-proxied wifi, at work wired and wifi connection both requiring proxy. Wired one has "Automatic Proxy Configuration" URL preconfigured. Unfortunately on MAC wifi proxy settings are tied to wifi interface card (not to the wifi network) so I have to manually add (when coming to work) or remove (when returning back home) "Automatic Proxy Configuration" URL for wifi. While in clam shell mode, I plug in wired connection, wifi is on, login, change proxy settings for wifi - Firefox that remained open does not see the new network settings and any tab fails to reload or open new URLs (proxy cannot be found).

Can Firefox be more tightly integrated with OS, to be notified of these proxy settings change event and flush cached system proxy settings it resolved before the change?

Firefox 35.0.1 Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.2

The error is "Unknown account: Sign up". I can log in just fine with the same account on https://account.services.mozilla.com/ though.

Particular to my setup:

* My email address contains a "+". 
* I didn't remember my password, so I changed it to a new one in the Preferences on my first device (but, as I said, the new one works fine on https://account.services.mozilla.com/)
