Have just been given the security warning for a site www.solar-thailand. On using the advanced button I am told that " Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for www.solar-thailand.com." and that the certificate is only valid for (list of sites): "The certificate is only valid for the following names: sim456.com, www.sim456.com, dodeetoday.com, home-dd.com, solar-thailand.com, service-thailand.com, dcspump.com, cable-thailand.com, led-thailand.com, tp-scg.com, 3d-thailand.com". Am I going mad or does the site actually exist in the list??? If someone could please explain this I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance, Peter.

I just upgraded to Monterey on my Mac running FF 101.0.1 (64-bit). I cannot add new search engines to my list of search engines. I'm trying to add DuckDuckGo without success. I have Google, Bing and Startpage. I click on Find More Search Engines, select and add DuckDuckGo but while it appears as an extension it does not appear in the list of search engines.

Can't get Firefox to use ported profile files; how to use Synch

I have tried numerous times to copy over the contents of my Firefox default profile folder from a Windows 10 PC to a new Windows 11 PC. I followed all the instructions as far as I know (when either saving or pasting the folder contents, Firefox is off; successfully downloaded and installed Firefox on new PC creating a new default profile which is where I pasted the contents from previous PC's profile, etc.) When Firefox is restarted on the new PC, it is just the same as the new installation -- no bookmarks from the old profile show up, e.g.).

Any ideas for how to get this to work are greatly appreciated. I have a lot of bookmarks and need to be able to access them on new PC. (BTW, this approach worked just fine when I installed a new disk drive on the old PC about 5 years ago and brought all the Firefox profile data over - everything came over as expected. I wouldn't think the fact that this is a Windows 10 to Windows 11 porting has anything to do with it not working -- these are just profile folders.)

Would Synching the two PCs work better? Does Synch just add all the profile and password data on the two PCs together so that each ends up with the total of what was on the two individual PCs and nothing on either is lost? When I looked at Synch on new PC, it was not clear how to get it to point to the old PC - Add a New Device just seemed to point to a phone. Again, any help is much appreciated.

For the past few days I get the request to enter captcha characters every time I try to access the Amazon website using Firefox on my Win10 PC. It works fine on my Firefox for android on my phone and also works fine using the Edge browser on this PC.

I've tried resetting Firefox. I've tried troubleshooting mode. I've tried turning off enhanced tracking. What else could cause Amazon.com to feel the need to verify that I am not a robot ?

The latest update for Wondows 10 prevents Firefox (and Edge) from loading. Everything works fine once I've uninstalled the latest update so the problem is clearly theirs. I can't be the only person experiencing this problem but contacting Microsoft is next to impossible. I wonder if you can: 1) alert them to this issue; and 2) pressure them to fix it as constantly uninstalling the updates is a pain!

Some web pages contain data split into pages and provide something like "Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Next" at the bottom of each page. One example is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#search I would like to be able to move between pages without using the mouse using a keyboard shortcut.

Is there any way that Firefox could simulate a mouse click on a particular element and link this to a key?

My job also requires me to change systems lots of times, from Mac to windows to Linux. Is there an easy way I can save my personal about:config changes to a file for easy import on other systems?

Today I updated my wordpress site to 6.0 and now my gallery isn't working in Firefox. It works in Chrome, Edge, and Android Chrome.

I tried turning off all my Add-Ons, I cleared the cache in the browser and W3 Total Cache, and I deleted the gallery and uploaded it again. None of these things worked.

I don't know what else to do.

hey folks,

since today firefox wont load any websites out of troubleshoot mode. not even settings/ about:config. if i open a page in a new tab it just stays blank and nothing is happening.

in troubleshoot mode i turned off hardware acceleration - nothing changed after restart. i updated the runtime file "Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2022", which is suggested in different help-posts, i deactivated all addons, i created a new profile and also tried an imported one from eralier today - so far nothing has worked.

i also reinstalled firefox with version 99/ version 101 two times, after i cleared %APPDATA%-data.

im also just using windows defender as antivir.

please elp, i'm out of ideas.

Hello. I just closed by accident my main window so I restored it, but it apparently lost all the container data and restored all non-pinned tabs to the default container.

Is it normal, is it a bug or is it a yet-to-be feature?

It feels like a bug because pinned tabs (which were not present/open in the secondary window that stayed open when I accidentally closed the main one) where duly opened in their respective containers.

For awhile now whenever I visit Kickstarter, I never get the full page to load. I mainly notice it in the header where the info for the campaign information doesn't show on Firefox. I've tried playing around with my widgets and protection to see if that would allow the page to fully load, but nothing has worked.

For the past few weeks I've been receiving numerous firefox crash reports & also when trying to open firefox an error indication that firefox is already open. I've never had this problem with firefox in the past, and have been an avid firefox user for many many years.

This occurred on my old desktop computer which died this week & is also occurring with my brand new, out of the box HP laptop computer (with ALL the windows updates and HP updates installed); The old computer used Windows 10 Pro, the new computer uses Windows 10 Home.

My old computer used just the windows defender for protection, but my new laptop comes with a 1 month trial of McAfee which I am using until the trial expires.

Firefox is (and was) my default web browser. The software and updates for firefox have always come from your official website and in a timely manner.

Could you please look into and resolve this issue?

Thanks so very much for being Mozilla Firefox!
