Starting last week, Firefox has not been working very well. It has been very slow, it takes a long time to load, and it freezes constantly.

I made sure that I updated Firefox, I have refreshed several times, and I have made sure that all of my plug-ins are up-to-date. I have even run both Malwarebytes and my anti-virus software to no avail. Nothing came up as far as the virus scans go.  :-(

When I save some bookmarks, I add a remark about the site or a hint about the password. I would like to extract a simple sortable list of all the bookmark names so that I can sort and list and take it with me when travelling, print it, etc. The more sophisticated bookmark programs aren't suitable for my purposes.

Hi, I don't know if it's a firefox bug, or maybe a change made recently (in the CORS code) cuz firefox keeps complaining about the request being blocked (and I don't remember this happening, I remember the content of the file being displayed in the site, a json translation file, some months ago):

Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://static.domain.com/js/DataTables-Spanish.json. (Reason: CORS header ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ missing).

I have the subdomain properly configured, in fact, the other requests like css/js files are being read and working without problems, but this particular request (made from inside a javascript file) is being blocked with a CORS error, even when I can see the header in the firefox network monitor:

Accept-Ranges: bytes Content-Length: 932 Content-Type: application/json Date: Thu, 05 Jan 2017 22:52:32 GMT Etag: "3a4-52ef9645b6940" Last-Modified: Sat, 26 Mar 2016 20:19:09 GMT Server: Apache/2.4.25 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.2j X-Firefox-Spdy: h2 access-control-allow-methods: GET strict-transport-security: max-age=63072000; includeSubdomains;

3 days ago, a webpage came up from Firefox for browsing security or something. So I clicked on ok for the added protection. Now, I can't search anything, no matter who or what it is. I tried different search engines with same results. Each time I try to search something, I get a message unable to connect or unavailable. I can do everything else except search, I get the same result when clicking a link on someone or something. I can't remember the full message I get since I am at work. Couldn't find this site to ask my question at home. I found this doing a search here at work. So what do I do? If resetting Firefox is the answer, will I lose my bookmarks?

When clicking on a file that is to be downloaded from the internet a dialog box opens. The dialog box offers a few choices but there is no way to choose because the radio buttons are missing. Also, there is a scroll bar but is not visible; you have to "guess" where it is to find it. Safe mode displays the same behavior. A reset didn't help. I'm using openSUSE 42.2. Thanks.

"Secure connection failed" SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP, no "Advanced" button, v.50.1.0

After the automatic update to 50.1.0, I am no longer able to connect to https web interfaces of appliances on my LAN/VPN.

Before the update, I would receive a "Secure Connection Failed" page with an "Advanced" button that would allow me to confirm the security exception and continue to the web page.

Initially after the update, there was no "Advanced" option and the error code was SSL_ERROR_INAPPROPRIATE_FALLBACK_ALERT. As part of exploring solutions, I did a refresh of Firefox. After the refresh, the error code is now SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP and there is still no "Advanced" button.

I can access the page via Internet Explorer after confirming a security exception. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1.

I have Windows 7 on my gaming desktop computer, and have Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 which played fine on Explorer. Firefox works fine since I installed it, but this game is now jerky rather than smooth. Could Explorer be interfering? Even if not, would I be at any disadvantage if I uninstall Explorer?

I don't think I did anything to make this happen. I did not install any new extensions or plug-ins. I don't even use Yahoo. I changed the settings back to default in the General tab under Options and that did not work. I tried all of the solutions that were suggested in the forums (making sure there was nothing at the end of the target URL listed in the properties/checking extensions) and nothing worked. Any suggestions? Thanks.

A virus hosed my Windows 10 system. In restoring my apps, I reinstalled the latest version of Firefox. It created its own default profile. I have saved earlier Profiles in a separate folder on a different drive. I copied them back to the default folders in the Users folder. When I run Profile Manager, it only shows the one Profile just created but won't recognize or list those other profiles. I need some help, since those profiles have all my Bookmarks, extensions, etc. Please help.

I have re-installed adobe flash add on., I have followed every troubleshooting suggestion that Firefox has suggested and every-time I shut down Firefox, the Adobe Flash player quits and I have to re- install it....EVERY-TIME...I never had this issue up untill the last month or so. Please suggest something, I love using Firefox and really dont want to change over something that can be fixed with some ease.

Check this link out.." and where does the link go?...right to the troubleshooting section everyone has already been to with no positive results.

Firefox crashes constantly. It slows down, black boxes appear on the screen blocking out information and then it quits. I have tried turning off hardware acceleration and that doesn't help. Pages like Google Maps reliably cause it to crash. I haven't updated my graphics driver, but I'm wondering if it can be anything else. I have a ton of crash reports available.

I recently downloaded firefox and had all my chrome data imported to firefox , I proceeded to sign up for an account but accidentally keyed in the wrong email address and had that email registered . I went to log the device out and created another account with the correct email address and afterwards went to check if the email address I entered wrongly was valid , turns out it IS someone else email and was active . I was wondering after they verify the email , will they have access to that account and all the bookmark , history and saved password ? .
