Recently, two sites have given me 'Secure Connection Failed' errors. One was 'SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE', the other 'PE_END_OF_FILE'. These sites have worked fine for years, now they don't.

Microsoft Edge has no trouble with either site.

I have used Firefox for years to log in to Fifth Third Bank. The last several months it has worked intermittently. The last 2 weeks it won't work at all. I have done all of the suggestions in Firefox help. Deleted cookies, Reset, Refreshed, etc. No success. I am able to log in using Chrome. The bank tells me that when I am using Firefox they do not see me trying to log in. They can see me immediately when I use Chrome. I am getting an error message number that is not helpful and an IP address that indicates it is tied to Comcast in my hometown. Help! I don't want to use Chrome!

I set "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" and it opens the bookmark link in a new tab in W10. It opens the bookmark link in the current tab in W11. Both are v93.

My preference would be the W10 way.

Not sure why this would be an OS related issue but there we are.

On bankofamerica.com, when I log in, it asks for acknowledgment and once I give it, a terms and timeout timer window is supposed to pop up with a 'continue' button further down. I only get the top 1/4" or maybe 1 line of the window and can not get past this point. It works fine on other major browsers. Any ideas on why?

System: MSI B640 Tomahawk. I5 10600KU 32GB RAM

Video: MSI 3070 X3

System Drive: 250GB fast Samsung SSD, with 50% free.

System OS: W10Pro_x64 21H1, Defender, no Firewall, no extra AV. Firefox_93.0_x64

Network: TYPE: Dedicated FIBER LAN Provider: Telenet Account Type: FIBER_200 Plus +


Addons: Adblock + µblock FBPurity Block Sender New Tab Override Cookie Manager and Cookie quick Manager Auto-High-Quality for youtube Ant Downloader Video Downloadhelper Cute Save Button WebP Image Converter Translate Web Page

Additional Information: Open Pinned Tabs: In between 25 and 60, depending on my current activities.

Tried: Disabling each add-on until all were off. Safe Start. Nothing helps.

Understandings: 1) No browser is made to run up to 60 open tabs (possibly even more)!!! 2) I run a "plethora" (compared to most users) if add-ons; these also bring the use speed down. 3) Resource used: 2GB (with "mere 30 pages" open.

BUT: DESPITE that: I ALSO understand that, considering my system and Network Type, it should not even be problematic with 200 pages open at once. 2GB over 32GB of RAM? Not the slightest issue (and it often runs at 4GB RAM in use). My CPU never runs half high, even when I have like 60 pages open: Should not be an issue then either. My Video Card has plenty resource over as well when at highest for me usage." Again, it should be no issue. My Fiber Netware? Telenet BVBA, Mechelen Test results: Ping: 5ms Jitter: 2ms Download: 904.2 Mbps Upload: 038.3 Mbps Not the best, not the worst, but for simple browsing, more than, I would assume, plenty.

So, what gives, what is the issue? No extreme strain on the system, no background high-resource issues, sure: one or two add-ons in Firefox but these as well do not strain my system, no AV issues, no Firewall issues (I turned that off, I fail to get the need for one as a house-dog-tree user), yet slow performance. Also, while 30'ish tabs running, 2GB used of RAM? My my, what the hell do they do as Site Admins to have these amounts (and NO, I do not do porn, thank you.  :P I am well aware of other people having insane issues surfing porn, as I helped many of these folks)? Sure, Deviant is a larger one that is open, being a graphical site, but like Quora, FB, Hot- and G-Mail and similar, these ain't, so to get a 2GB usage is weird, I would assume. I said, assume: yes, I am not specifically an internet know-all, I know of networking as a former NOVEL Netware Supervisor under UNIX (also Spupervisor), but Networking in a company is not the same as internet.

So, what is going on, why is my browser so slow? Having turned of all and 1 page open it's lightning fast, but now ... So, it is the open tabs, and the add-ons, though when turned off, I see no real difference. Brings it to tabs. How come, it is this "heavy", even for my system, please?

Thank you. Xog.

Hi! So, I just wanted to ask, is there any way to change the background in Firefox's "New Tab"? I think it is better to have something different instead of a blank and light/dark background.

I would love to find out, because Google Chrome has that feature, but I still wanna use Firefox.

See you later and thanks for any help!

A few months ago, probably after FF update, the "open with" stopped working, only download is possible.

Particularly, simple url links fail to "open with" including reading with firefox itself. I can not open PDFs, outer program links. Only a few PDF links are opened at specially crafted websites. Probably those are sites with on-site defined MIME or allowing the PDF contents being pre-cashed.

In all the other cases where the file being opened should be pre-downloaded with FF downloader, it fails to download. The same file is downloaded easily when choosing "save as"

I guess, the problem may be in the "downloader" part only, since other online contents are displayed, i.e. streamed, or stored in cache without problems.

Please, please fix the double spacing in the bookmark menu. Please go back to single spacing. Not sure why this change was made a few versions ago but I is NOT an improvement. If it was done in error fix it. If someone thought is was a good idea please ignore them. All this did was make it WAY harder to use the menu. I have found no way to change this back on my own. No settings, no downloads, nothing. If there is a way could someone direct me how to make a permanent fix.

If it does, I cannot make a recovery key, since I do not know my password. If it doesn't, then I will reset it.

I have never set dark mode as a preference for Firefox or Windows. Thanks to whoever can help me. Florio
