Hello Mozilla fellows.

Yesterday a top margin of the "New tab" page ("top sites" etc. page) suddenly became missing (not centered vertically) in my Firefox 73.0. This page displays broken for any Firefox profile (for Firefox instances of other users of the same Windows), so resetting ("refreshing") Firefox is not a solution, and most simple Firefox reinstallation also did not help.

(I believe there are no screenshot needed here, as anybody knows what is a large top margin of a centered [div] entity, and how does its absence should look.)

My desktop AMD A6 computer where Firefox got this problem is maintained pretty "default" - Windows is strictly genuine out-of-the-box, there was no any errors caught of any custom settings invoked during any software installations, every software unit in Windows is free of charge (no stolen software at all), all hardware drivers are ok, desktop graphics are set to usual 1920x1080 32bpp Windows Aero, and I even did not use any realtime antiviruses for years. There are also no any add-ons\extensions\plugins\themes in Firefox, and no Flash or Java installed.

A similar question (№ 1268604) already exists here for a few months, but I decided to also begin a new thread for the issue, because the problem is quite sensitive for me - I do not want to reset entire PC to get rid of this tiny bug, even though I guess this would help a bit :)

Can anybody clearly explain me, what and why has changed in my Firefox files yesterday and how can I fix this by any obvious tiny configuration actions or something alike? I still believe that a solution different from complex hardcore action exists for my case :'/

I recently had a very frustrating problem with Flashplayer. Whenever I tried to watch any kind of Flash video, the video would black out - and any tab I opened would be blacked out, as well. Eventually, the browser would crash completely. Found a problem about it in Mozilla support, but no solution.

Long story short, the problem was AdBlock Plus. (It may have gotten corrupted somehow???)

When I completely REMOVED it - restarted FireFox - then reinstalled AdBlock Plus, the problem was fixed.

lately there is something going on with either Fire fox or the internet or something..

When I click on something, fire fox just sits there saying "connecting".. Many times I have to click on something several times or exit firefox and restart.

I tired uninstalling firefox, rebooted my windows 7 computer, reinstalled firefox and still get the same problem.

ALSO, Downloads,. Having problems downloading now. Seems the downloads never START.

I used A few addons such as download helper, and such and they are totaly out of whack now. Download helper won't work unless I go to tools, addons, then close the tab.. then when I select the file to download, it put it in a que..

I use Adblock Plus and Avast AV, and Admuncher. I've turned them all off, and STILL have problems with downloading and connecting..

If I am forced to have to see and watch endless advertising to be able to use the internet, I will pull the plug on this thing just like I did the television 12 years ago.

I've had a working Firefox sync for a little while. I decided that I want to use a different email address so I delete my account from computer and continue to make a new one. When asked to verify, I go to the link and I get a page that says Firefox accounts need JavaScript. I tried opening this link in different browsers and on my phone but same error. Can't get my account verified. Maybe its not important, but my first account was just a forwarding address to what I set my new account email. I.e. my old address was <name>@<domain>.com and my address is <name>@<domain>.ch, the .com forwards to the .CH. Maybe the confuses Firefox sync? And JavaScript is definitely not disabled. I checked aboutconfig.

Hello

I'm having troulbes accessing HP iLO with FF 36.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, getting the following error message:

========================

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to 172.25.X.X. Issuer certificate is invalid. (Error code: sec_error_ca_cert_invalid)

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.
========================

It seems to work with other browser such as Chromium, so the problem seems to be FF 36.0. Unfortunately, I don't have an "Add exception" button in FF that would allow me to bypass this warning.

I've already followed the following links: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/secure-connection-failed-error-message https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems

But I didn't managed to get it work. Any idea how to get it fixed?
