Others are having the same problem. This is a Connecticut State web site for employees. The message is that the authenticity could not be verified when we click on the sign in link. I'm asking for a solution from Mozilla since the forum suggestions don't work and access through Explorer works fine.

This is important. We are told that Explorer is not the most secure browser. But if Firefox cannot display the sign in then we have no other choice.

The suggestion from "cor-el from March that we open the "about:config" page via the location bar doesn't work. It sends you to a Yahoo search site. And Firefox can't find "security.tis.insecure_fallback_hosts" that was suggested

https://corect.ct.gov:10000/psp/PEPRD/?cmd=login&languageCd=ENG& is the site.

Please help

MENU, TOOLS, OPTIONS opens a new tab with "The address isn't valid" message. The URL is "aboutpreferences". I've tried launching Firefox in Safe Mode with the same result. I've also used the "Refresh Firefox" button. No change. I simply cannot access my preferences at all. I believe this is a relatively new issue but can't say for sure when it last worked correctly, but it did work in the past.

I've tried like hell to stick with firefox, but it's become useless.

Fresh install, on a fresh OS install, on a PC with 8 cores@3ghz and 32gb ram, and firefox is STILL SLOW!!

More than 10 tabs == random hang for a couple of seconds / minutes Have more than 5 tabs, and close one it hangs a few seconds to a minute. Have more than 10 tabs open, select "close other tabs" after the tabs close, FF hangs for 30 - 90 seconds.

After closing tabs, CPU usage shoots to max for that core.. i say for that core, because mozilla limits firefox to a single core, which wouldn't be so bad, except EVERYTHING ON THE SYSTEM HANGS WAITING FOR THAT ONE CORE TO CATCH THE FUCK UP!

Add on top of that firefox looking more and more like chrome... I mean.. basically firefox is like having the slow, retarded, shit smelling version of chrome...


PLEASE GO BACK TO WHAT MADE YOU FAMOUS!!!

A light-weight, fast browser.

NO ONE WANTS OR NEEDS ALL THIS USELESS GARBAGE YOU KEEP SHOVELING ON!!

Here's an idea, before adding more buggy nonsense code that serves no actual purpose other than to make you look more like a bastardized version of chrome, why don't you actually fix the crappy buggy, slow garbage code you already have in place?


STOP TRYING TO BE LIKE CHROME!!! IF I WANTED CHROME I'D FUCKING INSTALL IT!!!

If the next release of Firefox does anything OTHER than fix the myriad of issues causing slow performance, and high CPU usage, i'll be moving to chrome, and leave Firefox and Mozilla to go on with it's business of a slow, agonizing death march to the bottom.

Hi,

After logging out of my account on Amazon today I went to log in again and couldn't. I tried resetting my password multiple times, only to get stuck in a loop of endless captchas. I called customer service twice and tried restarting my computer. I was told by customer service to contact FF since I could log in with no difficulty in Chrome.

Any ideas how to fix?

Thanks

I just upgraded to Firefox 38 on Ubuntu 14.04/64 bit. Prior to the upgrade, all webpages displayed perfectly normally. Now on v 38, the default zoom is very large. I have to ctl-minus each and every webpage I visit to get the zoom back down to a normal size.. In fact, the entire user interface of 38 is too big.. icons on the bookmark toolbar are far bigger than they were on 37.0.2.. What changed between 37.0.2 and 38??????

Dave

Further update: Tried upgrading from 37.02 to 38 on a Windows 10 tech preview system and do not get the screwed up default zoom...

I had my firefox display my bookmark bar under the url bar. Its set to show, but none of the bookmarks are showing up anymore. It's just an empty bar. Even in safe mode it's an empty bar. I used to have my frequently used url's on there, but they recently disappeared. Now I'm left with an empty bar with no use, and i was wondering if I could get it back. Below I have linked to the picture of what my status bar looks like. https://www.dropbox.com/s/609pci1oz4bwcal/Firefox%20bookmarks.PNG?dl=0 Any help would be appreciated

For a while through a number of updates, I see this on certain websites, rolling stone and cnbc are two for example. If I go to fonts in my computer, and hit restore default font settings, it only temporarily resolves the issue. If I go to settings and disable websites from using their own fonts, it resolves it but fonts do not appear as sites intend them to appear. This does not happen in other browsers, only firefox. I reinstalled windows 7 fonts. I tried disabling hardware acceleration... Still hasn't resolved the issue. How can I resolve this issue in firefox?

Videos on Facebook are choppy, Adobe Flash player 16.0.0.305 crashes. Intermittent lag time issue when scrolling on all web pages. High CPU and memory usage when the lag is occurring. I am going to update to Adobe Flashplayer 17. I am mostly curious to know if I need both Adobe Flash Player 16.0.0.305 NPAPI and Adobe Flash Player ActiveX 13.0.0.214. Do they perform the same function? Could having both installed be my problem?

I was browsing and one of the tabs stopped working. I couldn't close it or do anything w/ it except view it. The other tabs and window seemed ok. I had quite a few pinned tabs and am using the group your tags feature. Eventually I gave up and closed the windows. (the one w/ the pinned tabs I closed last) When I opened firefox again, it opened a whole bunch of "New Tabs" and I can't restore the session since it thinks it retained the session. My guess is that the group tabs functionality is bugged, especially since it seems you can't turn it off and it won't release the session.
