No matter what I try based on internet searches, and on this forum, I can't get my browser to save any history. After I close the closer at end of day, it erases everything. I even created a new profile.... no good. Uninstalled and re-installed.... no good. Places integrity checker says the database is sane. I checked my system care software and disabled any privacy sweeps months ago. My older (a few years back) firefox used to save everything....

I used to not have issues with Firefox but in recent weeks Firefox has crashed so much that it's becoming increasingly unusable for me - I've had 63 crashes in the last 24 hours, including 6 in the process of writing this post. The crashes do not seem to be caused by any specific website or action, and they still occur in safe mode. It is becoming increasingly rare for Firefox to last more than a few minutes without crashing. Any information that would alleviate me of this problem would be greatly appreciated. Some error reports are listed below:

Hello! My Firefox tabs crash constantly since I got a new computer. I have tried all the suggestions I can find in the forums. I did try downloading Firefox for enterprise but I could not figure out how to get it up and running, it seemingly installed, but Firefox seems to be the same. My new (to me) computer is a MacBook Pro 13" mid 2012 if that has anything to do with it. I have Parallels installed on my computer for the first time, if that might have anything to do with it. I have not had the problem with Firefox crashing within the Virtual Machine, though. Here is the latest submitted crash report: bp-f70bd533-3d22-4cd6-9f39-498920200121 Thank you for any insights and help!

In the past 5 minutes, MFF 73.0 x64 crashed 3 times. I've sent an error report, I always do, so quite a few should be at Moz. System: I5 6600K 16gb RAM GTX 1060 6GB 16tb disk space, of which 60% to 70% in use.

Crashes are irregular in time, but always with an instant CDT.

Tabs also frequently crash out on me, for no apparent reason. This too happens at irregular intervals. See picture below.

Please advice? Thank you. Xog.

This week when trying to bid for items on ebay immediately - within 2secs - after inputting the amount and before I have time to click on "Submit Bid" the amount box has cleared itself. Then closer the auction gets to the end time - say during the last 30secs - as I try to type in the amount - say 125.00 - the 1 is replaced by the 2; the 2 is replaced by the 5; the 5 is replaced by the .; the . is replaced by the 0 etc.

Can someone please explain what might be going wrong? I am using Mac OS Mojave v10.14.6.

I have not tried to purchase on ebay since May 2019 when it was 'working as you might expect'. Then I was using Mac OS High Sierra Not being able to make the purchases I was after due to this apparent malfunction came as a real shock.

Is the cause likely to be my PC setting in some way; a glitch in Firefox or an ebay issue. I have spoken with ebay but they were not able to give me an immediate answer as to whether or not it is an ebay malfunction. My account with ebay is clean.

I hope someone in the community can point me in the right direction. Thank you.

It worked fine with 72.0.1 and it works on my old Dell Inspiron with 72.0.1. I reloaded 72.0.1 on my new Dell and now these sites are working again.  ? ? ? ? ? I uninstalled Flashplayer and reinstalled it.

Sometimes when I click on a bookmark on my bookmarks bar, and sometimes at complete random, the browser opens up a tab that goes to a very specific site over and over. In my case, it's www.david.com since that is my firefox profile name. It doesn't seem to do the same thing with my wife's profile though. I have no idea what's causing this, and haven't found this problem anywhere else.

I would also note that it starts the tab with the code http://david and that eventually forwards to this.

While trying to make a purchase, I noticed that Firefox flagged the web page with insecure mixed content. However, the browser info contradicts the official documentation.

The browser states, "Information you submit could be viewed by others (like passwords, messages, credit cards, etc.). Your connection is not private and information you share with the site could be viewed by others."

Yet according to the documentation, the orange triangle icon indicates passive mixed content. It states, "Attackers may be able to manipulate parts of the page like displaying misleading or inappropriate content, but they should not be able to steal your personal data from the site."

This seems like a contradiction. The browser is telling us that our information could be compromised, while the documentation states that attackers should not be able to access personal data.

Can you please clarify which one is correct? Also, if the browser is misleading, it should be corrected in a future update. If the problem is with the documentation, it should be updated.

BTW, I noticed that the website had Google Analytics objects embedded. Could that be the source of the insecure HTTP content?

Can websites with passive mixed media content be trusted with sensitive data?

Good Afternoon,

I run a few docker containers that I have a reverse proxy setup with "letsencrypt" on some subdomains I own. Randomly, FF (both mobile and desktop) refuses to load those pages and returns a "SEC_ERROR_OCSP_MALFORMED_RESPONSE" error. I'm also not able to pull up the certificate at all. FF will randomly work just perfect with these sites however.

Also, when FF is unable to open these sites, every other browser I tried is able to. Other browsers that worked, IE, Edge, Safari, Samsung Browser, Chrome, Safari on IOS.I already tried to start FF in safe mode, to no avail.

I was also able to use this website: " https://check-your-website.server-daten.de" to check the certificate status, and everything came back green.

    • Edit** I will add that I've deleted all the site data, gone through every single useful google result page as well. My system date and time is also correct, as is the server I run.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
