I downloaded a word document yesterday. When I was prompted to save it or open it, I chose to just open it. I then made some changes to the word document, and clicked "save". Today I was looking for the word document, but couldn't find it. When I open Firefox's download menu, the option to open it or open its containing folder is grayed out.

What I'm very confused by is the fact that when I clicked "save" in MS Word yesterday when I finished editing the document, MS Word saved the file. Normally, when I "open" a word document directly from Firefox (as opposed to saving it to a specified location), if I edit the document and then click "save", MS Word will direct me to the "Save As" menu where I choose a folder to save the document in. This time, MS Word saved the file as if it were a file I had downloaded. So I had no idea that the file was not in a secure location (probably was in a temporary download folder).

The changes I made to the document were extremely important and I'm very very disappointed that I've lost the file. Is there anywhere it could be? How can I prevent this from happening in the future (other than saving the file directly from Firefox)?

Thanks

I'm great fan of airplanes. There is one website: www.passur.com, which gives in near real time the traffic over some of the US Airports. For example the link: www4.passur.com/jfk gives all the in-bound and outbound traffic to/from JFK airport. This page requires Java. I installed it and everything was OK. But from some time - 2-3 months - every time I try to open and watch the traffic there is message saying "application blocked" and in the message box is written - on the first line "Name: A"; on the second line "location: www4.passur.com"; on the third (last) line is written "your security settings have blocked an untrusted application from running"; and on the right bottom corner there is a button "OK". The question is how to unblock this and to view the webpage. Thanks in advance.

Firefox Displays "Peer's certificate has an invalid signature." SubCA shows "Could not trust this certificate for unknown reasons"

Using a 2-tier on-premise PKI. Offline Root CA (Standalone Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise) and online SubCA for issuing certificates (Domain-Joined Issuing CA)

ROOTCA certificate installed in the store and showing trusted (Uses a SHA2 signature and PKCS #1 SHA-256 With RSA Encryption algorithm)

ISSUINGCA certificate installed in the store and showing "Could not trust for unknown reasons" also has SHA2 signature with RSASSA-PSS algorithm

Issued certificate is for a Lync Front-End Web Server and when attempts are made to load the secure web connection. I receive the error "Peer's certificate has an invalid signature"

I've completely de-installed and re-installed Firefox. Removed and re-added the ROOT and SUBCA certs. Note: No issues when using same certs in Internet Explorer 8, 9 or 10 on the same system. Lync client also using same certificates, no issues. Only when accessing the Lync Web Services from Firefox. Question: Does Firefox NSS Internal PCKS#11 Module support RSASSA-PSS SHA-256 with different hashes? How can I troubleshoot this further?

Sound not working for some websites

Hello,

I can't listen to the music on the following websites:

http://www.cede.ch/en/music/?branch_sub=1&view=detail&id=896510&branch=1 http://estastonne.bandcamp.com/album/live-in-odeon-2011

I use the first a lot of, so it's really annoying. I have already searched and I think the problem has to do with firefox. I have a linux system. When I try to play the music I see the time counter which works perfectly, the only problem is: I have no sound. If I install firefox 25, I have no problem. With firefox 26 or firefox 27 it doesn't work. With the same configuration (plugins for example) if I switch to firefox 25 everything is fine. I have already tried to clear the cache, but it doesn't help. I have no more idea.

If anybody has an idea it would be great!

Thank you

1. I saw that Firefox saying that Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.510.13NPRuntime Script Plug-in Library for Java(TM) Deploy vulnerable Update Now Java(TM) Platform SE 7 U51Next Generation Java Plug-in 10.51.2 for Mozilla browsers

2. I attempted to update. Got message saying that Java update already installed. Message seemed to be a Windows message. Unfortunately, I overrode the message and reinstalled both of the above updates.

3. Now showing the above Javas twice for plugins on Firefox (once in already installed plugins and once in updated plugin.

4. I went to Java. Ran the uninstall older versions of Java from Windows successfully.

5. Firefox continues to say that above Javas are vulnerable and need to be updated.

6. In the past, the updating was seamless. Now not so.

7. What do I need to do or is this a Firefox issue.

8. Both Javas in my plugins (both the ones in recent updates and the ones in regular plugins) are saying "Ask to Activate".

9. Thanks.

I have a bookmark to a website that saved my username and password. I changed that password but was not asked to update it. For all other sites for which I changed my password Firfox did ask if I wanted to update the password. So, I deleted the username and password entry for this website. However, it still remembers the username but will not ask if I want to save the password. Why the change? Why can't I get it to save my new password?

I went to a website to watch a video, and when I was finished I closed the tab the website was on. When I was finished on my computer I shut down Firefox. Upon reopening Firefox later it restored the page. I do not know why it's doing this, and I cannot seem to get it to go away. I have cleared all my cookies/cache, etc. as well as doing a virus scan and nothing can tell me why this is happening. It's quite annoying, and I would like my browser to function properly. I have recently updated to the latest version of Firefox so everything is up-to-date. I'll take any suggestions anyone can throw at me because I am fresh out of ideas.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Whenever I want to visit www.google.com or www.youtube.com, I receive the massage: "Connection is not secure"

"You have asked Firefox to put up with www.youtube.com, a secure connection but we can not confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally websites will show trusted identification when you want to set up, to prove that you are going to the right place a secure connection. The identity of this website can not be confirmed."

This problem just showed up recently, and I haven't changed anything in my FireFox settings. Is there any way to solve this problem?

Kind regards, Gerben

Firefox does not remember my password even after I click remember password on all of the websites I visit. I recently installed a new computer and copied my old profile folder into the new firefox profile folder. I am using newest version of firefox.

Also, all of the Gmail accounts are deleted when I associate different Gmail accounts to a list. But the autocomplete for my username still works.
