Every few days when i try to use Youtube or Google in Firefox i get the Error Message "Secure Connection Failed" and the Code "PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR". This is very annoying and i did not find a way to fix this for me. The only workaround is using another browser. I have the Version 68.0.2

With my advanced years I spend far too much time browsing Imgur and Reddit but I like doing so - they're relaxing, informative, sometimes provocative sites and they suit me well. However of late there have been problems. Firefox (since it's the only browser I can use, thanks to Firefox seemingly blocking others) seems to be disabling most NSFW pictures and videos and now won't even play GIF links on those two sites. (Weirdly enough however I can watch porn on other sites, so where's the problem?) Sure, this might be a European setting but I can find no other information to help me unlock this setting so any information will be appreciated. And yes, I've emptied all my cookies, etc. but to no avail.

I have reinstalled, refreshed, run in safe mode, and nothing helps. I get constant tabs crashing and it has cost me a good deal of time redoing things several times to get anything accomplished online. I get crashes with no apparent pattern or link to a particular website or task. I run Webroot and Spybot for security. I installed spybot after the crashes started thinking maybe there was malware but nothing was found and nothing changed. My hardware is an Asus laptop running on an i7-7700HQ with a GTX 1080. My Intel drivers are all up to date and my Nvidia drivers are Studio 431.70 but I also had issues with crashing on other Nvidia drivers and only recently settled on studio to make certain it was not the culprit.

Here are my most recent crash reports: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-2e0a970f-c659-4b88-ac2a-714340190902 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-8420d99b-6dcb-40ed-8310-2ed480190902 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-ce3e056e-0e59-420f-acb8-28baa0190902 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-6f32a198-5636-48aa-a702-9212e0190902 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-50ef9668-ca26-4585-ac0a-d1c210190902

I am trying to find a video on How to make Firefox start when Windows startup?

There are instructions on how to do it but I get confused really fast. I like videos to show me.

you have to do that in Windows 10 autostart folder in the start menu. You can do that by: 1. Press the Windows Logo Key + R, type shell:startup, and then select OK. This opens the Startup folder. 2. find the app you're looking to add or remove, and drag and drop it in the folder or copy it, then Paste the shortcut to your app into the Startup folder to have it run at startup.

I am running Firefox and all of a sudden every web page shows with a white rectangle bar at the bottom, just above the text bar. In many cases, when I scroll down, this white bar blocks the area for reply, comment, etc. I've attached a picture.

I have about 20 tabs that I use every day. I had Firefox open at a time my PC crashed. When I restarted Firefox, it asked me to restore previous session as it normally does. When I click on any tab, nothing loads, the tab loading icon just moves back and forth. When I create a new tab and try any website nothing loads. I shut down and restarted and this time just tried to load anything in the default tab - same thing. Nothing loads. Firefox is DOA?!? I am having to register and post this question from MICROSOFT EDGE (horror)!

For some specific reason I uninstalled Chrome - probably something to do with security, I guess but then I seemed to find the answer and it had nothing to do with Chrome. I've therefore tried to re-install it but failed. I can download it and save it but when I try to run and load it nothing happens. Any answers will be appreciated.

My keyboard is US but I often need to insert the UK pound sign. The input tools work very well and all four English options are installed. Unfortunately they are all to replicate US keyboards which don't have the GBP sign.

The Firefox verion is 68.0.2 64 bit for Linux Mint.

Are there additional keyboards available or a better method of inserting special characters?

TLS handshake for minutes, then fail. Computer restart always fixes

This started when I installed V68 on my Mac (I'm on 68.0.2 now, Mac is 10.12.6). About half the time when I start my computer in the morning, when I try to browse *any* site (http or https), I get the TLS handshake attempt that lasts for several minutes, then connection fails.

BUT, *unlike other posts with this problem*, if I restart my computer (restarting FF does not fix it), all is well. A detail (not sure if relevant): the pages my (Comcast) server has local copies of, that is, my home page and a couple of very frequently accessed pages, I can access, but any other site, regardless of http or https, results in the TLS handshake "freeze 'n fail."

  • Edit: I just lost then, 10 mins later, regained my Comcast (internet, mail, cable). I did not re-start computer or FF, but when signal returned, I got the dreaded TLS Handshake Freeze 'N Fail. Again, computer restart let me come here to report.

Hi - this relates to 68.0.2 x64 on W7 x64. For a long time - 3 years or so - my Home page has shown my most visited web sites and these change over time as they should. After an MS update/restart FF now shows a blank home page. (see pic)

Everything else works OK. If I make a new FF profile and use that the home page works as expected. I know I could ditch my current profile and use a new one but I'd like to repair it if possible.

Any suggestions pls?

Thanks!

Hello,

As a web developer I run MAMP locally and develop my websites using chrome, now I wanted to switch to the dev browser of firefox. After allowing an exception for my local domain name pointing to the MAMP instance running that particular website it does not let me go past thru the alert. Even when adding the correct domain name to the exception list under the tab security in the settings it does not let me go past thru the warning.
