I have a habit of keeping lots and lots of tabs open in my Firefox window. Sometimes, I'd like to know how many are open so that I can go through and close some of them if the number is excessive...(or at least excessive by my standards).

How do I get a quick count of the number of open tabs? Surely I don't have to count them myself, do I?

I am having a problem with Java and firefox. Any webpages that use Java either cause firefox to hangup(tabs are still clickable, and the window title changes but the page does not), or crash all together.(I can't even use the Detect Java app on their website, it just causes the hang, and never recovers)

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Java and Firefox several times in different orders and nothing has corrected the problem yet. Java does not work in safe mode either. I am running Windows 8.1 Pro, Java 8, 45, and Firefox 37.0.2. I suspect that it a problem with either my computer or settings in Firefox because I am not getting any popups asking me to allow/deny pages that want to use Java like I get with IE. But Java does not work in IE either.

If there is any other info I can provide please let me know, I'm going nuts with this trying to figure out the problem and I'm stuck.

I have used the remember and restore last open tabs option to restore all my tabs when I start FF every day.

However, I accidentally closed FF without the tabs open today. So I lost my "open tabs" history.

Now I need to look in Time Machine (OS X) and find whatever file it is from yesterday that saved my tabs open history.

Does anyone know what this file is called?

Thanks. Mac

Very similar issue to this, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1056423. Am able to get to http://www.independentagent.com and then when the 'sign in' link is clicked (which redirects to https://sso.iiaba.net/login.aspx?sid=xxx) this error shows:

Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   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.

I ran the sso.iiaba.net domain through https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=sso.iiaba.net and it reports a few warnings but gives the site an overall rating of B.

      • Fixed. As noted we were supporting old ciphers. We trimmed and resorted the cipher list and now we get an A on the ssllabs.com scan. Firefox works now, no problems. I wish the original error message was more descriptive.

When I open any website with Firefox I get multiple "ads by name" popping up all over and can't even read the website. Also, when I try to open most common websites, such as hotmail, gmail or youtube I get a message saying "this connection is untrusted", and with gmail it won't even give me the option to click "I understand the risks" so I can't get on gmail at all!

I have tried all of the following: scanning computer with McAfee, Adwcleaner, Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, Bitdefender, SpyHunter, AdGuard, Avast Browser Cleanup, and Emisoft Anti-Malware. They all show my computer as being completely clean. I have checked my Add ons, plugins and extensions. I have checked control panel "add and remove programs". I have finally refreshed Firefox. When that still did not help, I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed it. Still nothing has made any difference at all :(

This is not affecting any other browser (chrome or IE)

At this point I am completely unable to use Firefox at all, and it's my favorite! Please help.

Thanks

Hey Team,

THough it doesnt seem to be working. I also read about the grepref all.js file. But i cannot seem to see that on our install anywhere.

Is there a way to do this. Many legitimate downloads are blocked by this behaviour.

Why isn't the download stopped the moment it is initiated? (spend hours downloading legitimate files and documents only to realize firefox deletes them without any user intervention) and why is there no option to recover the download?


So far the only way to fix this issue seems to be:

a) use a different browser b) systematically lower the security settings for the browser to download a file then re-enable the options (browser.safebrowsing.enabled and browser.safebrowsing.malware.enabled)

Thank you for your time.

I have Java 8 update 45, build (1.8.0_45-b14) installed on a Windows 8 machine. Java is showing enabled in Firefox's About:config. When I look at Java's control panel the "enabled in browser" box is checked. But when I go test on Oracle's site it says java isn't installed or enabled.

I need Java to work because it is used by Paypal international shipping to print labels.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello,

Recently I cannot seem to load any YouTube videos on the first try. Sometimes they will load after numerous refreshings, but for the most part they will always show the error message after loading for a while. I have tried deleting my preferences, refreshing Firefox, trying in safe mode, disabling all plug-ins, using a flash-blocking add-on, and nothing has seemed to work. YouTube also seems to work fine for Safari and Chrome.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I'm trying to process a credit card payment for Norwegian Airlines. When taking me to the Verified by Visa page on my credit card account ( https://www.vpv.scddesjardins.com/ ) I get the secured connection failed page: "An error occurred during a connection to www.vpv.scddesjardins.com. SSL received a record with an incorrect Message Authentication Code. (Error code: ssl_error_bad_mac_read) " Their server seems to be still running SSL 3.0 and some other terrible things, but on another website I had this issue I got a different error message. Should I be contacting my credit card company, and if so what should I be asking them to do? I can't give a public page, obviously, and though I tried to test it on Chrome, they're charging me 7 EUR more for the flight on Chrome than Firefox (just another reason to use FF!).

Just installed Adblock Plus on both IE8 and Firefox 37 – got successful messages on both. Checked on IE8, ABP is working great. Went onto Firefox and its not working.

Went to Windows add/remove programs… found the IE version BUT the Firefox version is not present. Went back and tried to install Adblock Plus again and got the following message:

“Adblock Plus could not be installed because Firefox could not modify the needed file”

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

WHAT CAN I DO TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM?

PS: I fully removed Firefox 36 with Revo and reinstalled version 37 – same problem.
