I don't understand when I've been on a public bus site for instance, to work out a map plan, now it blocks me from using a certain application on the site when i've been on this same transit site many times. Do I have to allow the site to be opened in the set up? This is when I could use the map the most but considerable time now's lost my getting to the place i would have liked to go in the short time given but i trusted hitting this site's bus schedules and now it's denying based on insecure connection (?)

Ever since I upgraded to Firefox 63, several trusted websites have stopped loading; instead I get sent to an error page with:

Your connection is not secure

The website tried to negotiate an inadequate level of security.

<www.thestar.com> uses security technology that is outdated and vulnerable to attack. An attacker could easily reveal information which you thought to be safe. The website administrator will need to fix the server first before you can visit the site.

Error code: NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY


This also occurs with https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/63.0.1/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Installer.exe

Is the problem at my end or theirs? If the former, what do I need to do to return to the behaviour for FF 62?

So this happened today: - Firefox did an update while I was playing. - Suddenly I noticed the icon became a blank page and when I clicked it Windows informed me, that firefox isn't on my PC. (Uninstalled itself for some reason?) - Since then Firefox won't ask if I want to save my tabs so I have to manually restore previous session every time. ShowQuitwarning is set ot be enabled. I tried deleting/renaming sessionstore.js and prefs.js - When I restored ShowQuitwarning it says it isn't a boolean, but a string variable. I assume something got corrupted, by have no idea what and how to restore besides a full reinstall? (In the meantime the option seems to have vanished fully, it is not present in about:config)

Not only has FF disabled Tab Mix Plus, but none of the available extensions offer similar tab management. This forces me several times a day, when it is not several dozen times, to simple but annoying manipulations.

On the Web, I realized that I am not the only one complaining about the deactivation of Tab Mix Plus and its non-replacement.

I am not competent in this field. However, it seems to me that FF has had enough time, since Tab Mix Plus is disabled, to either help its developer comply with FF's new constraints or develop similar functions internally.

I am not going to do any digging. I type way to slow. Its why i haven't transitioned to linux. Just put the option to put tabs back on the bottom. It was available for a long time, then some smart asses thought changing it "made more sense" it doesn't. I also hate that all my history and bookmarks simply disappeared into the chrome disaster firefox has become. I use palemoon because huh huh it can still put tabs on the bottom.

Simply, there is no security reason to not have tabs AVAILABLE to be on the bottom-where they belong. I would also suggest letting me clutter my screen with all the stuff that was once just a matter of how the GUI is presented and not a security issue.

I refuse to go back to Firefox because you have made it less user friendly and haven't fixed it in 5 years!

I'm not sure if either of these are possible because i've done a lot of searching and found nothing, but is there some kind of genius on here who knows how to make the right click context menus black with white text? Is this maybe possible using the userChrome.css file? I don't want to use a theme because i just want this one thing changed.

I'd also like to increase the spacing between each item on the context menu. See attached image to see exactly what i mean...

I'd be happy if i can do at least one of these things. Thanks.

Certain websites will load partially in Firefox but some pieces will be missing (e.g. I click "sign in" on a website, and I get a mostly blank screen). It looks like the wepage is trying to load, at least in some instances (e.g. I'll see a header at the top of the page, but then it goes away after a second). Most vexing at the moment, part of the website I use to order items at work is not loading correctly. None of these issues exist while using Safari. I've tried: clearing history, mucking with the DNS settings, adjusting the proxy settings, re-installing Firefox. None of these seem to be fixing the problem, although reinstalling Firefox means that now one or two webpages now work correctly that didn't work previously (I think?). I would say that this started to happen after I updated to the latest version of Firefox, but can't be 100% sure of that. I'd really appreciate advice on how to get Firefox working again, since it is my preferred browser!

Hi there, since some days i encounter problems with downloading pdf-files. I tried this link http://personendatenbank.germania-sacra.de/books and tried to download a file by clicking "PDF" at any of the links there. I wouldn´t work. I see the download in the history (strg-j) but there is no progress. I encountered the same problem at another site.

Is there a problem with downloadlinks beginning with http:// ???

In Chrome for example the link works without any problems

Firefox 63.0 x64 not preserving window size and launches taller than screen size

I've tried deleting the xul file and other recommended solutions.

I have both bookmarks and command toolbars enabled.

Display is 3840x2160, Microsoft Windows 10 x64 has Display Scale and Layout set to change the size of text, apps, and other items at 175%.

Launching Firefox will always launch the window taller than the screen height (2160) having the command bar above the top of the screen and the bottom of the browser below the bottom toolbar.

Resizing and then quitting and relaunching will launch Firefox at resized window size. Firefox settings are set to remove all cookies and cache upon exit. Exiting with File->Exit or clicking the top right X both seem to work.

After some period of time, typically after a screen lock or reboot, a new launch will revert back to the old size that goes off the screen.

I need to figure out how to make the resize sticky.

This gaming computer is brand new and so is the firefox browser on it. The usage currently on this firefox is extremely high and I was concerned why it was so high in respect with the same number of tabs being opened on another browser such as Microsoft Edge. One extension is downloaded and that is Adblock plus. The image attatched is normal firefox usage for me. 16gb of RAM in the gaming computer also.

Running Firefox 63.0.3 (64-bit) on Windows 10 ver 1803, I click on "Restart to update Firefox" and get "Firefox is installing your updates and will start in a few moments." But when it does start, nothing has changed: I am still running 63.0.3 and it still says "Restart to update Firefox." I have been round this loop a half dozen times. What next?

The latest update won't take. Every time I start Firefox it runs the update again. If I go to Help>About Firefox it say "Restart to update Firefox" every time. How do I fix this. It's annoying, especially since I get a security warning every time I start Firefox because of the update.

The information below says version 63.0, but Help>About says 63.0.1.

obwohl die Lesezeichen-Symbolleiste unter "einstellungen--->Anpassen " aktiviert ist, verschwindet die leiste in der ersten Sekunde des Firefoxladevorgangs immer und kommt nichtmehr wieder.

Bitte helft mir, ich mag meinen seit Jahren genutzten Firefox sehr gerne, aber solange mir die Lesezeichensymbolleiste fehlt muss ich wohl erstmal Chrome nutzen, da dort die Lesezeichen-Symbolleiste problemlos unter der Adressleiste angezeigt wird, so dass man vernünftig wie bisher mit firefox arbeiten kann. (Lesezeichen-Sidebar kann mir Firefox zwar anzeigen, aber an diese hässliche und unpraktische Sidebarlösung kann und will ich mich gewöhnen!)

I have added https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gfycat-click-to-gif/

It shows up in the Extensions section under "about:addons" and it is enabled. However in my toolbar, there is no icon for it and therefore I cannot use it. I've tried using the "Customize" feature but none of my extensions show up there, so I cannot drag them to the toolbar.

I would attach screenshots, but even that isn't working on this support page form.
