There's a problem with the site filmcomment.com that only happens on Firefox and not other browsers. As of today, when I load the site an ad pops up for a newsletter. I click the X and the text of the ad goes away, but the screen remains dark and the site is unusable. I have turned off all ad blocking for this site and have tried clearing cookies.

This is the first time I've needed to do this in years but, at one time, installing a root (or, for that matter, third-level) CA certificate in Firefox was straightforward. Unless I'm missing something --and I've been poking around these files for over an hour-- it is now, at best, quite obscure. Is there a way for me to install a CA certificate for a CA you have chosen to not recognize and include with the system? If so, a clear explanation of how to do it would be appreciated. And, yes, I understand the implications of doing this.

Thanks.

Hi Folks!

I'm located in the U.S.A. in the Denver, CO. area. I'm not using a VPN or any sort of IP masking technology, so my normal Comcast public IP address should be what's visible when I browse the web. Also the language is set to English-US in Firefox's settings.

Recently I noticed that when I try to login at GoDaddy, the GD website redirects me to the India version of their site (in.godaddy.com). I'm posting in this forum because this only happens when I go there in Firefox. If I use Chrome or Edge (i.e. Chrome rebranded) I get the U.S. version of the GD site. I've verified that my public IP, currently 98.43.226.196, is in fact registered to Comcast. I've cleared cookies and cache, restarted Firefox, but GD still sends Firefox to its India version. Does anyone have any idea why this may be happening?

Thanks!

Starting today, when I click on a video in Youtube using Firefox 88.0.1, the video will not start. When I click the start icon in the middle of the screen the page reloads and the video starts. Problem is when browsing you have to select a video and then when the video page loads you must start the video. When using the back button, you must go back two pages not one.

Until at least around 1 month ago it was possbile to open all tabs from another device's firefox. You could go to the Synced Tabs Sidebar, right-click the other device's name and click something named along the lines of "open all tabs".

When I tried to do this today, I noticed that the "normal" way to the Sync-menu via |||\ symbol doesn't work anymore and I at least found out that I could get there using via the firefox account. I can send a (single) tab to another device and I can see the list of the sync'ed tabs of a computer, but it is no longer possible to right-click that device's name and thereby getting to the "open all tabs" option.

After this was - seemingly? - patched out, is there any other way left to do this or was there any new way implemented?

thx

   You're a power user moving through this website with super-human speed.

in this reference https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000063.htm#firefox it indicates that you can add, change or delete saved passwords by selecting the hamburger menu (3 parallel lines) followed by Preferences > Privacy and Security then navigate down to Forms and Autofill. However, in this version (FF 88.0.1 (64 bit) for Ubuntu), there is no such option listed.

I have some mistaken email addresses saved in the system (somewhere) which I would like to correct/delete as appropriate but am having an issue finding them.

Is there a hidden option somewhere in the system where I can access these to make the necessary amendments?

My money program uses an importer to download files directly (rather than saving to desktop & manually importing. The institutions' choices always include OFX, QFX, and QIF. The Application list in Options lists OFX -- in two places-- and QFX. Both are assigned to the importer.

No matter what format I choose, I have to browse for the importer (several clicks). To check, I downloaded account information for several accounts held with the same institution, cycling through those 3 formats. Same result each time. "Always do this" is checked and OFX and QFX are assigned to the importer as you can see in the screenshot.

Shouldn't FF be adding QIF when I download activity in that format? I certainly didn't add OFX or QFX manually! And can anyone explain why "Use importer" is broken?

TIA mm

Hi, I have a website created through GODADDY. All of this shows OK in Firefox apart from the blogs. Just comes up with message "Posts coming soon!" Maybe in 2019 it was OK but sometime since then it happened.

With Safari & Chrome the blog page shows fine.

I have gone to Firefox history and cleared everything. Doesn't help.

I looked at Badger setting and tried to remove these, still doesn't work.

(I am also raising this with GODADDY .. it's a conversation!).

Anything else I can do?

All FYI,

The latest update from FireFox, on my Kubuntu 18.04 LTS server, disconnected and disabled all my networking, at least I thought so. Rebooting did not help! Running test I could not ping www.google.com, but found I could ping any direct IP, thus Google's DNS server: 8.8.8.8 would ping. Checking I found that the update had disabled dhclient, so re-installed dhclient then ran:

  dhclient <active port>

Used ifconfig to find the active port and now back to working.

Hate it when the developer idiots do not follow the legally mandated "Must Test" laws. Always causes problems when they do not follow the laws!

Cheers!
