When clicking on a file that is to be downloaded from the internet a dialog box opens. The dialog box offers a few choices but there is no way to choose because the radio buttons are missing. Also, there is a scroll bar but is not visible; you have to "guess" where it is to find it. Safe mode displays the same behavior. A reset didn't help. I'm using openSUSE 42.2. Thanks.

I belong to a few survey sites so I can earn some extra cash. A few of these sites host surveys by SSIsurveys. These surveys never open in Firefox however they do open in Chrome. I keep Firefox up-to-date and am running FF 50.1.0. When I try to open one of these surveys in Firefox I get the following error page. You have to understand that I wasn't able to answer anything and that this was the first page I saw when I clicked the link to take the survey in the email I received. The URL for this survey was: http://dkr1.ssisurveys.com/projects/start?psid=DI23tk9XdYo98DcMv9eCLbK0gK-xMtXm I have contacted SSIsurveys but I am unsure whether they will answer me directly because they are not the ones sending out the survey to me and I have also contacted the sites that send me the surveys and they haven't answered me yet either. Where it says to click below for another chance doesn't work either. If I look in the top tab I can see "connecting" briefly followed by "please try again" because it will not connect to the site.

"Secure connection failed" SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP, no "Advanced" button, v.50.1.0

After the automatic update to 50.1.0, I am no longer able to connect to https web interfaces of appliances on my LAN/VPN.

Before the update, I would receive a "Secure Connection Failed" page with an "Advanced" button that would allow me to confirm the security exception and continue to the web page.

Initially after the update, there was no "Advanced" option and the error code was SSL_ERROR_INAPPROPRIATE_FALLBACK_ALERT. As part of exploring solutions, I did a refresh of Firefox. After the refresh, the error code is now SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP and there is still no "Advanced" button.

I can access the page via Internet Explorer after confirming a security exception. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1.

When checking for an update from FireFox 50.1.0 it says that it is up to date even though version 51.0 is available. Why?

I have Firefox version 50.1.0 and I know that version 51 is available. However even after performing the procedure mentioned in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-version Firefox claims that it is up to date and won't update to version 51. What can be the reason for that ?

My OS: Windows 10.

P.S. I suspect having a malware on my PC - since Google Chrome sometimes opens tabs that I did not try to open with the following web address: http://dazwindowsapps.xyz/download/index.php?mn=9995

Can it be that Firefox is also affected somehow?

I have Windows 7 on my gaming desktop computer, and have Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 which played fine on Explorer. Firefox works fine since I installed it, but this game is now jerky rather than smooth. Could Explorer be interfering? Even if not, would I be at any disadvantage if I uninstall Explorer?

Hi I have latest 50 f'fox. Since update f'fox crashes every single time. I cannot shop online as it crashes. It does not matter whether I have a single tab open or not.

I have uninstalled and re-installed. I have refreshed and checked all plug ins and ensured all up to date.

Problems started since new 50 version f'fox.

I have windows 7, 32 bit. F'fox uses over 1.5 Gb Help firefox warriors

I don't think I did anything to make this happen. I did not install any new extensions or plug-ins. I don't even use Yahoo. I changed the settings back to default in the General tab under Options and that did not work. I tried all of the solutions that were suggested in the forums (making sure there was nothing at the end of the target URL listed in the properties/checking extensions) and nothing worked. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Firefox has been crashing regularly and more often over the past month! I updated to the current version when it became available, but I uninstalled and reinstalled the program earlier this week. I have disabled and re-enabled add-ons, continually clear the cache and browser history, run regular antimalware scans. Nothing is making a difference.

I'm trying to upload my crash report but it doesn't seem to be cooperating. Since January 1, I have had 28 crashes; the worst day was 1/2, when there were 11. Since the "submitted crash reports.xht" is still trying to upload, I can't currently attach a photo of a page showing the most recent crashes.

What do I need to do?

Thanks in advance!

Basically, if I go to a certain website my CPU usage raises drastically. Slowing down my PC. I switched to Firefox because Chrome stopped working on my computer, and I loved it, so I kept using it.

But now, I'll have to use... Internet Explorer... Unless I can fix this problem. But I used these browsers because they're fast and allow me to do what I need.

If you know what's causing this problem, I'd be really appreciative if you could let me know.

A virus hosed my Windows 10 system. In restoring my apps, I reinstalled the latest version of Firefox. It created its own default profile. I have saved earlier Profiles in a separate folder on a different drive. I copied them back to the default folders in the Users folder. When I run Profile Manager, it only shows the one Profile just created but won't recognize or list those other profiles. I need some help, since those profiles have all my Bookmarks, extensions, etc. Please help.

Crashes happen mostly while running Facebook, especially when using FB messenger/chat and/or when clicking on any links. Sometimes crashes happen on other sites as well, but they always happen within 2-5 minutes since the last Firefox update. I have read that Nvidia hardware acceleration may be the cause, but I deactivated it under Options/Advanced/General Settings with no effect. I also tried various settings with Cashed Web Content (override/no override), but that doesn't do anything either.

I'm having multiple crashes, on different sites (mainly sites with video's / flash). Also happens in Safe Mode. I have hardware acceleration on (also tried it off). My flash is up-to-date.

I've tried resetting Firefox, removing add-ons, running in safe mode, malwarebytes, uninstall/reinstall and it's still crashing.

The three solutions offered by Mozilla support (change application actions, delete mime type file, refresh) do not work. Refreshing only works until the next time I start up Firefox. My work involves downloading many short audio files. When a new tab opens up with each download, this becomes unmanageable. Can you help me?
