Hi, Firefox post v62, is not compatible for many websites, and do not load as intended. Few examples:

https://tnpds.gov.in/pages/registeracard/register-a-card.xhtml (this website used to work well in Firefox v62, but not now. From the attached image you can see a pop-up, which does not show now in firefox v64.

Likewise https://ssup.uidai.gov.in/ssup/login.html, after login (for aadhaar address update) the language translation does not work at all.

And: many sites which depend something like "load unsigned scripts" as displayed in Chrome, does not load in Firefox at all, since the same if enabled in Chrome the website works as intended.

Kindly look into this. I have tried all options in Firefox, but it doesn't seems to help any way.

Thanks.

Dear Firefox.

I have to use XP ATM because of other software I have that doesn't like anything else!

Firefox can't play any videos anywhere in ordinary mode. In SAFE mode, it plays YouTube fine but not any streaming vids., it says 'no content with suitable MIME found' - that's probably not TOTALLY the right wording but the MIME part's right and the overall sense of what it's saying is correct. It can't play streaming video even on YouTube in any mode, though! I know it's not Windows XP because Chrome plays it all fine, it's just I don't like Chrome (feels like Big Brother is Watching Me!)

I've got Firefox 52.9.

Can this version play streaming video, or wasn't it ever able to?

Yours puzzledly - I don't understand why starting in SAFE mode makes it able to play any vids. at all. I thought SAFE mode just turned off all plug-ins, yet if I turn off all plug-ins and start it normally it can't play any video. Only in SAFE mode. So SAFE mode must be doing something else apart from turning off plugins - but what!?!?!

Another one problem is when I download something from internet it's open with visual studio code. But it should open with file manager. I checked everything works fine. If I download txt file from internet and it's open with code I will accept but unfortuanate it's working as a filemanager but it's not.

Hi all!!

I'm supposedly the website developer for this charity. I'm SO glad it's a voluntary job because I wouldn't pay me for not being able to wrap my head around this problem! But I can't so I'm hoping one of you guys can.

http://www.oakleaf-enterprise.org/get-in-touch/

That's the site. If I copy/paste that (I say 'I' just incase it works brilliantly for you experts, I'm NOT an expert, please be gentle with techie answers!) into Firefox, I get the following....

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.oakleaf-enterprise.org. Peer reports it experienced an internal error. Error code: SSL_ERROR_INTERNAL_ERROR_ALERT

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

If I use Chrome or Opera it works like a dream. What's Firefox doing the other two aren't? Thing IS - this charity uses Firefox on everything so if I can't make the site load in Firefox they won't really use it and they'd have to pay someone to do it better - and they don't have any money!! So I'm I.T.!!

I'm working from a Windows XP SP3 computer - same O.S. as theirs, none of us can afford to upgrade all our software - and we use free Avast as firewall/virus stopper (if that has any bearing, no idea) I'm writing the site using HTML in Notepad and looking up most of the tags/programming instructions (if you call HTML a programming language.) I've got experience IN programming but using Visual Basic/Cobol, this is my first ever try at a website. I didn't use a Flash site because I know not all browsers like Flash.

Now it's seeming not all browsers like HTML either!!

I'm stumped.

Over to you guys. One BEEEG favour though - please don't contact the charity saying 'Chris can't do websites' or similar, I'm disabled too and I wanted them to see I COULD do something, not that it was something ELSE I COULDN'T do either. I know it SAYS 'please contact website owner' which is the Charity, but please don't till I've had another shot at this, using what you tell me!

Yours hopefully

Chris.

Firefox randomly stops being able to open MOST websites, until reboot

Fairly new laptop (had it ~ 3 months now) with Windows 10 (old laptop was Win 7)) and Firefox 52.7.3 (64-bit) ESR. Have had the problem since getting the laptop (and I keep it up to date with MS and FFX updates). Works fine for a while (can be several days) then suddenly can't open new web pages. However, some sites still work. (eg: hp.com - theregister.co.uk - amazon.co.uk won't open but bbc.co.uk - microsoft.com - mozilla.org will) Other browsers (IE and Edge) still work fine for all sites. Closing FFX and reopening doesn't help. Rebooting the laptop does clear the problem (until next time)

Every laptop on our organization are installed with softphone apps which is x-lite. Thus, we had developing some portal on web to make it easier make some call. Basically the portal contains sip link with some number followed by colons.

Our orginzation use Firefox ESR 52.7.3. To make firefox able to handle sip protocol, we add some configuration on about:config as bellow

   network.protocol-handler.expose.sip -> Value -> false

After that, whenever our user click some sip link, the browser would triggered x-lite application. At the first time, the pop up launch application will be shown and then end user will choose default application to handle sip link.

Our client running on Windows Machine.

However, for our user to change about:config and choose default application launcher are hard to do. Hence we need to develop simply way to approach that.

So we think to make a pre-configured Firefox ESR which is comes with custom build configuration and default launch application are the solution for our problem.

I had read from several article that talk about deploying firefor for enterprise that comes with some configuration on default/pref as this link refer https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Enterprise_deployment_before_60#Configuration. But the Firefox it self aren't ready to download.

However, Is it that any possible way to pre-configured installed? How to customize the installer?

Thanks

hi, Youtube has been crashing for the last couple of months. I have an iMac, and none of the solutions posted, do help me solve this. it is very annoying. I have been using some other browsers, but I want to keep using Firefox, which has been my choice since 2006.

When I enter youtube.com in the bar, it starts to upload for about 1 or 2 sec, I can see the content uploading, and then I get the crash message: Gah. Your tab just crashed. We can help you! Choose Restore This Tab to reload page content.

Well, this is not helpful at all. Reloading to crash again. I have just updated the latest version of flash, but nothing. Running on Mac OS High Sierra - version 10.13.3 Hope someone can help, thanks JM

My older Firefox 45.7.0 has no problems with https certificates. I am running this on Linux CentOS 7. I recently downloaded the updated Firefox 59 and ran it. But it cannot run https. It keeps giving me the Connection is not secure (SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER) error for every https site. And when I click the Advanced button, it does not have a button to allow me to add a security exception.

I added our company network proxy, specifically, even though it is set at the system level, just to see if that helped, but no luck.

I can't get to any https search engine (google, duckduckgo, etc.). Please help.

For many months now, I think since ESR 52.0 update, Firefox is extremely slow. For example, when reading a wikipedia page it takes up to 2 minutes to get the scroll function to respond and move down the page a few lines. Process explorer shows an extremely large number of page faults >7,000, FF gets increasingly slower when I use it more than 10-15 minutes a day and crashes almost every time I close and restart. The crasing threads are all file access operations. From what I observe, there is a similarity to an issue I had 40 years ago when I wrote a multivariance statistics program using matrix calculations. The first few drafts were slow, taking more than 2 days to complete the calculation on a small test database. After careful analysis of the compiler and runtime system, I was able to find the appropriate order for the FOR-NEXT loops such that I minimized the number of disk accesses. The program then finished the calculation on the test database in less than 2 hours. It seems that something similar has occurred in recent revisions of Firefox. I think someone needs to examine the methods for allocating and using computer memory vs. disk memory being used by programmers.
