It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

When I do a search on Firefox, the line under where I enter what I am searching for is in a foreign language. Instead of saying All, Shopping, Images, Video, etc., those words are in a foreign language. Example: Alle Afbeeldigen Shopping, Maps, Video, Nieuws. How can I change this?

While to most, stopping Google Ads showing up in search is fine, I need ads to show. They are not since upgrading to FireFox 62(64bit). Windows 7. Tried to disable "block pop-ups", turned security to minimum. Also ran FF with addons disabled (safe mode). Still no ads. Older versions of FF on my other PCs still show ads. Suggestions please. Thanx.

I don't use any add-ons, on other browsers everything's ok. I tried re-installing my firefox, clearing cache, safe mode, many tutorials and scanning my system for viruses. None did help. Any solutions?

Latest Firefox 63.0 OSX High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G65) - no antivirus scanner - not on a corporate network - no proxy servers in Firefox or OSX

https://google.com/ > Unable to connect https://groups.google.com/ > Secure Connection Failed https://calendar.google.com/ > Secure Connection Failed https://maps.google.com/ > Secure Connection Failed https://mail.google.com/ > Unable to connect https://drive.google.com/ > Unable to connect

These do load without problems: https://www.google.de/ https://www.google.at/ as well as any other website I've tried

What I've tried so far: - Safe Mode - Firefox Refresh - complete removal of Firefox and profile, re-download, fresh install - switching between wifi and cable connections

No other browser on my system has these issues, testet with Safari, Chrome, Vivaldi

I do remember having this issue on 62.0.3 too...

Thanks for any pointers.

I have windows 7 and firefox 63.0.1 and cannot get on google.com because of a security issue. The error is as follows:

www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

I uninstall firefox and resinstall and it works fine for a short period of time. Then without warning, google no longer works and I get the security issue. I have uninstalled and reinstalled 4 times now and it is still doing the same thing. Works for a while and then not.

I also tried using version 62 of firefox but that also exhibited the same issue.

I researched this issues and there are all sorts of attempted fixes that supposedly get rid of this issue which I have attempted to no avail.

Will someone please help me understand how to fix this issue. I use google and gmail all the time and this is becoming a real issue. Your help is much appreciated.

The results page for a google query used to show the number of results at the very top of the page. It just disappeared and I can't find any way to restore it except to use a different browser. I prefer Firefox, but it just cut out the first essential tool for my research, so it's now useless. Please help!

Google can be so confusing I have 2 Apple tablets so when one was given a new password google came back saying you must update all your password devices, so when I entered the new password in the second tablet Google said you can’t use this password because it’s been used before.??????

   So do you have to have a separate password for each device ?

I want to perform google searches, but Firefox has blocked me for the past couple of hours. This is the message that I get when I attempt a google search:

"The owner of www.google.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

So the issue i'm having is that the login page for google seems to be broken in some way. I have 2 google account. one for college and one for my youtube. my college one works but my youtube one is what seems to break the page. I can try and get it sign in to my youtube account by tell it to forget my other account but then i'm left with the sign in page and a next/login button that clicks and nothing happens. whenever I get the page to accept that the account exist and try and quick select it, it then loads forever and doesn't sign in. If i open the browser in private mode it doesn't have this problem though but I don't want to only use the private browser as I use my history to re-search things a lot. I have tried clearing cache and cookies... I have tried reinstalling firefox... I have tried scanning for viruses and malware... I literally don't know what else to do... I even tried removing my add ons. nothing worked. If anyone else might have some insight on this I look forward to the help. All I know for sure is that it's been about a week since this started.

See the first uploaded image to see how Google Chrome presents https://maps.google.com/localguides.

See the second uploaded image for how Firefox shows the webpage, even when it's running in safe mode (all add-ons disabled). What's going on?

I also have Firefox Developer version installed on my Linux, and it doesn't have this problem. This problem is not just on this webpage but others as well.
