When trying to access 2 links, that I work with on a daily basis and have done so for the last 2 years, facing the SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP error and not able to access the pages because of Secure Connection Failure.

Have had this issue in the past, but was able to bypass it by clicking on 'Advanced' button in order to add Exception.

Problem is that since 2 days ago, error started coming up but 'Advanced' button is no longer appearing as an option. So, not able to bypass it in order to connect with the pages.

Thx for the help!

Hi, I have a Mac 10.11.6 and for whatever reason I cannot get Firefox to open. I received a message at the bottom of my browser during the last use saying something to the effect of click restore/restart to improve speed. I did this and now Firefox will not open. I get a Mozilla crash reporter screen even when I try launching it in safe mode. I tried the refresh option (by holding shift + option on startup) and still get the crash report screen. I reinstalled it multiple times, tried deleting it and doing a clean install, deleted my profile and created a new one, and even deleted my anti virus program. Nothing seems to be working and I am very eager to get my preferred browser working again.

Thanks very much for your insight!

I have Firefox 63.0.1 64 bit using Win 7. After the latest update, I frequently get the "performing a tls handshake" when trying to view a webpage. After 7 to 8 minutes I get a message saying "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've researched this problem and haven't come up up with an answer as to how to correct this. Does anyone know how to correct this?

Firefox update 63.0.1 is "super" slow. Nothing in the fix suggestions works.

This has been an ongoing problem that started, first with update 63.0, and continues with update 63.0.1.

I have tried multiple fix suggestions, including the very disappointing "refresh Firefox" option. While that did nothing to cure the problem, it did wipe out every saved password. That, to be blunt, really ticked me off. It says this fix solution will keep our saved information, with no mention of erasing passwords.

Second, I changed the Network Settings as directed, from Use system proxy settings to auto-detect proxy settings for this network. I have been cautioned NOT to use the no proxy option, because it has a chance of rendering some websites unavailable. Not interested in messing up my browsing experience any worse than these recent Firefox updates have accomplished by themselves.

All these problems aside, my biggest disappointment is in the total lack of communication from Mozilla. While I value the Firefox ideology and the mission to provide a more private internet browsing experience, all this is worthless to me if my pages load at something akin to dial-up speeds.

At this juncture I have no choice but to use Google Chrome until someone can provide me with a workable solution, a solution that doesn't send me back to square one with all my saved Firefox information. If that is the only remedy, I might as well switch my default browser now and begin to re-acclimate myself to the changes.

Thanks.

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?

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.

Firefox version 63.0.1 on Windows PC. This week, Firefox is slow to load all web pages. After pressing enter in the address bar or clicking a link, approximately 3-5 seconds will elapse before any page information is displayed. During this time, the bouncing ball is in motion where the favicon is usually displayed on the tab next to the page title. Then the page will visually load very quickly, while the bouncing ball continues for another 3-5 seconds before indicating the page load is complete.

This happens consistently on all webpages. The same behavior is observed in Firefox safe mode. Chrome loads pages without delay on this computer. This is a relatively new behavior which I've noticed within the past week. I'm on a 100Mb/s connection with very low latency and a fast DNS response (< 5 ms).

Greetings, I have been exclusively using Firefox forever and happy with it until a friend said "Hey, try this" and tacked duckduckgo on top of it - and I'm sure it does a great job - but I have since then noticed some browsing oddities relative to Firefox pre-duckduckgo and I want to remove it that I may compare before and after performances.

But I can't find it anywhere and as I am allergic to, and highly suspicious of, anything I can't track down and remove from my system if I so desire, I REALLY want it gone, at least until I find out more about its characteristics.

So question #1 = is it really that useful, and #2 = how do I remove it regardless? Thanks for the feedback.
