Secure Connection Failed On One Computer, but Not Others

I'm running into a very strange issue where on my personal computer, I'm unable to log in to the below website, receiving a "Secure Connection Error." I know normally, this would be a certificate issue on the website's side, but in this case, I don't believe it is. The issue being is I can access the site using Firefox on both my phone and other computers just fine. It just appears to be my desktop having the issue.

Are there any recommendations for fixing this issue? I've attempted clearing browser history, doing fully clean installs of Firefox, other browsers, shutting off my VPN, and DNS flush.

To note: this is a SSO site for logging into Opera products - in my case GameMaker Studio 2. I was, at least, able to login a few weeks ago. I'm using Windows 11, currently fully updated as of writing this. I'm using NordVPN, but so are other systems that allow me to sign in.

I visited the website https://quantumbridge.app and somehow it installed something into my Firefox so that the website loads on my toolbar as an icon for a couple of seconds and then disappears. I have tried turning all of my extensions off and it still appears. I have tried researching how to fix this but I have had no luck.

If I have a firefox window open (one or more), exit it, and start again, I can restore the previous session. However, if in between I open private browsing, it for some reason overwrides the session restore history with nothing. Can I somehow a) restore the session afterwards? b) prevent this from happening in the future?

Hi,

I am using Linux Mint 20.3, 64-bit and both Firefox and Chrome are not loading images for me on certain websites (i.e. okcupid). In particular, I am noticing that images will actually load for a split second and then disappear moments later.

I've tried disabling my adblockers, deleting my cookies and cache, running Firefox in Troubleshoot and Diagnose mode, running Chrome in Incognito mode, and evening uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Still the issue persists.

I followed the advice here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fi ... s-not-show

Any advice or suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks, Chris

My issue is that I have a huge amount of likes in my Instagram interactions and I would prefer to not have to just manually scroll. There are extensions that if the scrollbar is at the edge of my browser screen they all work. but sadly if its a scrollbar not at the edge of my browser screen they do not take affect.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/autoscrolldown/?utm_source=addons.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=search


if the solution is with javascript in console, or to edit the html

just inform me what you need me to get to get from the body inspect element in order to know what element is the scrollbar i will do that for you!

i just want this to be able to be autoscrolled, but the extensions wont do it

if someone could help me id really appreciate it

Hi; Search engine does not open in new tab. This is not how it used to work. Not sure when this started, possibly when windows updated to Win11(2 weeks ago), but not sure. I think there used to be a setting for opening a search in new tab, but I can not find it. I have "Add search bar in toolbar" checked. I use DDG as search engine. I did lookup in FF help but found 10yr old answers. I am sure many things have changed since then.

Also when searching FF help is there a way to sort by newest first?

TIA

Took me a long time to nail this issue down. Recently (past 1-2 years?), Firefox has started suggesting the base website when you have bookmarks that include the base domain - and it's really bothersome from a UX perspective. E.g. if i have "adobe.com/express" or any other adobe bookmarks, the FIRST autocompleted url Firefox gives me is "adobe.com" which I DO NOT have as a bookmark. In my Firefox settings I also have Shortcuts and other search suggestions disabled.

Why is Firefox doing this?

I have enabled the "Reduce motion" in macOS to limit animations when using app exposé or switching between desktops. Firefox seems to read this option from the OS and limit its animations, such as the loading animation shown next to a tab description when loading a window.

Is there an option to ignore the OS settings and enable all animations in Firefox?

My name is Rebecca Soto, I am being harassed by Google and/or government. IThey interfere with my interactions on the internet on Iany network or any devise while I use your private browsing. I have used your services like Firefox for years because I believe in your privacy policy. My advances to change my bank password online are useless, as soon as I fill out the information the web page I click submit and they redirect me to the previous page where it is blank again while I'm on incognito on Firefox. One simple password reset that takes 1 minute becomes a whole afternoon of loss and frustration. All because I wanted to report a concern about the drinking water in my area might have been contaminated. I believe in freedom of speech and the right to use the web privately. These people interfere with the settings on incognito mode and save my history. Use my private information on Facebook messenger , all on your private browsing Firefox app, inappropriately to influence my husband to leave me which they have accomplished. I am extremely insulted to be an American citizen today. We are suppose to respect the constitutional rights of all United States citizens and I can not understand why they chose to harass me? Honestly I believe this is a hate crime because I am Hispanic and Apache Natiive American Indian. I mean I hate to remind you that your company also runs the risk of a lawsuit that can impact this company for someone else's ignorance? This is why I am contacting you to please give my situation some attention and to take this serious. I have tons of screenshots and cell phone that have been disabled different devices connected to my Gmail. Just tons of hard evidenceas where my previous employer was sending me to a remote locations in Caldwell where I was monitored by recording video cameras in side the home. This is a big deal here and I would like your support for this matter because my entegrety will not allow me to submit to this abuse. Thank you for your attention you can reach me at [telephone number] or my email is [email address].

I routinely leave my most used socials in pinned tabs, meaning I have 2 plurk tabs & 2 reddit tabs open all the time. When the browser restarts, 1 of the 2 tabs will reload in a new tab and ask if I'm sure I want to open in the container that the pinned tab that loads properly loaded in. (I hope you can parse that, that's the simplest way I could find to word it.) Since firefox won't let you ctrl+W on a pinned tab, I then have to unpin and close the tab that didn't load right, & pin the new tab.

I use the latest version of firefox in linux mint 21.1. I'm on the latest kernal, but this has always happened (since I switched from chrome back in June).

(I also wish you could simply close a pinned tab, I used that a lot on chrome too.)
