Periodically when Firefox is updated, it starts rejecting Yahoo Mail from loading, giving the "Your connection is not secure" / SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER error. Unfortunately, it does not give you the option to add an exception, which clears up the problem most of the time.

Today this happened again with no ability to add an exception, and after looking at various websites for hours, trying to find a fix, I stumbled on one: Having Firefox "...automatically search for and import CAs that have been added to the Windows certificate store by a user or administrator." These are root certificates which you've manually imported. If you understood that last sentence, then it means you've probably done it on your computer; I know I have. The steps to fix it are these, and I cite the original web page further below:

- Open a new window in Firefox and type "about:config" without the quotes and hit enter - Confirm that you want to continue - In the search field, type in security.enterprise_roots.enabled and hit enter - you'll be left with one field - If it's marked as "false" then double-clicking it should turn it to "true" - Close the window, then go back to your Yahoo email login and try again. For me, this worked *perfectly*!

Here's the site where I found the info, under the "Experimental Built-in Windows Support" section: https://wiki.mozilla.org/CA:AddRootToFirefox

Good luck - I hope this helps to fix your Yahoo email login problem, too!

I am unable to open Gmail in Firefox. This has only just occurred - until now it has worked perfectly. On trying to open Gmail I now get the following message.

"Corrupted Content Error

The site at https://mail.google.com/mail/ca/u/0/#inbox has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected.

No other site has been affected, and I can still open Gmail in Internet Explorer, {but I prefer not to use IE for emails

Any help solving this would be really appreciated

The Secure Connection Failed message (The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified) is now effectively blocking access to more sites than it allows access to. I understand the reasons for introducing this measure but since there's evidently such a vast number of sites that don't use the recommended tls protocols Firefox has now made itself unusable. I've spent the day switching over to Edge - not because I want to but because I find myself shut out of practically every other site I try to access with Firefox. It is not my responsibility to inform the owners of all the world's sites that they should update their security to fall into line with Mozilla's requirements. I do not have the power to do this. All I - and every other Firefox user - can do is change my browser. Please restore Firefox to a workable, usable state.

When I open Firefox I get a message “Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?” If I click on Yes everything then proceeds as normal. If I close Firefox and then re-open it, the same thing happens (even as soon as one minute - or less - later). This is recent behaviour (last couple of days) and there has been no known event which might have triggered this. Other browsers (Chrome, Edge) do not exhibit this behaviour. How can I fix this (or do I just switch browsers)? The settings re Compatibility Mode and Run as Administrator are both unchecked.

Thanks for any assistance.

I'm not sure if I accidentally changed a setting or what, but I suddenly can't get sound to play on firefox (ONLY FIREFOX) not a hardware issue.

The videos will play fine, but without any sound. There isn't a speaker button appearing on the tab either. Sound bar has Firefox volume on max.

I restored to defaults; didn't fix the problem

Hi. I'm trying to log on to a particular company's website and keep getting the message :

"The requested URL was rejected. Please consult with your administrator. Your support ID is: 11373612934950299921" (with a different number each time)

I've cleared my histories, cache and cookies. My Firefox updates itself.

Going to other sites is fine.

I've spoken to the company, they don't know what's happened and are not having this problem themselves or with any other customers.

Which administrator might it be referring to? Can anyone help? (I'm not sure whether to click on 'Share Data' below; let me know if this would be helpful.) Many thanks.

Despite the available extensions for older versions of Firefox, the latest doesn't allow the install of extensions of a offer a technique to hide the title-bar of Firefox Browser. The title bar consumes space and I would like a method to remove it similar to the way it is removed in Chrome.

For the last few months (starting with an upgrade to new version), Firefox has asked for my master password immediately upon startup (or as soon as startup is complete), regardless of what web page I am viewing. This does not seem right; it should prompt for master password only when a site that I visit requires a site password.

Another recent post on the support forums advises going to security settings, and disabling the option for "use master password." That's not right, either.

I cannot print pages directly from Firefox. When I receive links via emails for shipping labels, I can see the shipping label in Firefox, but when I click on the link incluided on the browserr page to print the label, the preview and actual printing are blank. This also happens when trying to print an entire web page via menu>file>print. I have no problem performing the same action through Internet Explorer. This has only been happening for a few months after and subsequent to an update. Not sure which update began this problem. Been using Firefox for many years without any issues.

I have a Macbook Pro with a touch bar, and in Safari you can open a new tab and switch tabs with the touch bar. I was wondering if Firefox (or an extension) had similar touch bar compatibility? It feels like there is something really missing compared to Safari, and the touch bar has been a thing for a while now so I was hoping somebody had already made a solution.

Login for Gmail long-in NEXT button no longer responsive after installing latest Firefox 62. I usually have gmail account set to always be logged in. I signed out then attempted to sign back in. I typed in my username and click NEXT but this button is NOT responding anymore. So now I can't log into gmail with Firefox 62 on iMac.

I tried to open a “private” window in Firefox (first time using this) and the NEXT button in Gmail works and allows me to log in (I can see the indicator scroll and everything functions) , but in standard browser this button is unresponsive. I tried changing tracking, pop ups, added exceptions to gmail …. nothing fixes the issue. I cleared all my cookies, clear cache (now I have to re-authorize or re-validate my computer for all my banking & credit card access for payments, and everything, etc … big pain in the ass … thanks Firefox) . Why does NEXT button (or these controls) only work in private window but not in standard ?????? I also noticed recently that some other sites have had dome buttons that aren’t recognized after clicking.

iMac with Sierra 10.12.6 32gb ram, worked perfectly until I logged out and needed to log back in.
