“Firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to gitcdn.xyz. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one.”

Does anyone know what this is about? Thanks.

When I ask for the weather in my local area, or I'm looking for a specific local business, it gives me info for Columbus, OH. I don't live there. I live in Simpsonville, SC. I contacted Norton because someone said it could be my VPN. They said it wasn't their issue. What could be the problem? I've only had this problem for the last few days. I did have an update recently.

Whenever I open an Instagram profile or anything on that site the Back button will be greyed out as if the current (instagram) site was the first site that I visited in the current window or tab. No matter how many navigation moves and page/site changes I made previously in the same window/tab, it all just vanishes and I can't go back!

Why does the Firefox print button launch the save window? When I open an attachment from an email to print, the print button automatically wants to save the document as a PDF. If you try to open the PDF after being saved, it will launch the printer function on my MacBook Pro.

I have tried the procedures in the "Fix Printer Problem" article, which does not resolve the problem. If I refresh Firefox, the print button will work for a few days and then reverts to saving files.

I have removed and redownloaded Firefox multiple times, and I get the same results. I have used Firefox for quite a while and never had this problem. This issue is something that has started about two months ago.

I can log in to AliExpress and see and deal with my previous orders, plus able to search for items and see multiple pages of goods on offer from sellers but if I select one, will only get a static page with which details-options-prices would be filled in but are not.

Edge will show all this so I am confused over what is wrong (possibly java) can you help.

What has edge got that Firefox has not?

Firefox 86 has introduced a new print preview panel which I like. What I don't like though is that the unit for print margins has changed from millimeter to inch (see screenshot, in German). In previous versions, it was possible to set the unit in the prefs by changing "print.printer_PostScript/default.print_paper_size_unit". Value 0 meant imperial units, value 1 meant metric units. This entry does no longer exist.

There is still the entry "print.printer_printername.print_paper_size_unit" for every printer that's installed. Those values are all set to 1 in my case but this doesn't seem to have any effect.

So how can I set the margins of printed pages in millimeters instead of inches?

When I download a file and click on the downloads button to bring up the Downloads menu, I often just want to open the Linux Mint file manager in the right folder so I can move the file to a more appropriate place.

In the menu, there's the little button to the right of the listed downloaded file with "Open containing folder", but if I click on that, FF opens the downloaded file, not the file manager.

Obviously this wasn't always like this, but I don't recall doing anything that might have caused the issue. How can I set FF back to the default action of opening the Linux Mint file manager?

Thanks!

As I am on the computer all day, I find it helpful to get around slow page loads and stuck videos by clearing my Browser Cache frequently. As many as 20 times daily.

I have to do these exact steps: 1) Click on Tools>Options>Privacy & Security. 2) Scroll down, wait while cache data is gathered before the Clear Data option becomes active 3) Click on Clear Data 4) Uncheck the Clear Cookies box 5) Click Clear.

I do understand that by using the right settings, I could have Firefox clear the cache automatically, but that would just mean frequently closing Firefox and opening it right back up, losing all my open tabs in the process, so that option really doesn't work for me.

It would be really nice if Firefox could just put a button to Clear Cache (and only the cache, not the cookies) right on the Menu Bar. It would be one quick click and done!

Am I missing something - is there a way to customize my menu bar to do this, or is this something Mozilla is looking into?

I'm having a problem with firefox and the youtube webpage. When I use the youtube search box on the youtube site I can't use the space bar to create spaces. It seems to be stuck in media control mode as the space bar only pauses and unpauses videos now. I am not focused on the video bar of a video which would normally result in space pausing the video. My cursor in the search box and the space bar still pauses and unpauses but no spaces are made in the search box.

I do not have this problem in Chrome or Edge.

What I have tried doing:

1. Restart machine 2. Refresh firefox 3. Uninstall firefox

Point 3 above doesn't seem to be any different from refreshing firefox.

I am not sure what else to do here. Perhaps I'm just missing something basic?

Recently, I noticed Firefox has a new printer dialogue box. When that dialogue box starting showing up, all of my two-sided print jobs are BACKWARDS. The back page is flipped 180 degrees from the front page. WRONG!

As a sanity check, I double-checked with Chrome and Opera. No problem. Double-sided print jobs print as usual (i.e., when you flip the page over in the horizontal direction, the print orientation remains correct).

Somehow, the new Firefox Browser printer dialogue overlay is overriding the HP printer driver. Please fix!

So I was on a theme spree trying to find something that fit my tastes better before deciding I would opt for the custom CSS Firefox route, however, I added Dolan's Dynamic theme (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dolans-dynamic-theme/) and when I tried testing it on other sites I came to realize it was not actually dynamic and decided to use a different theme. However, even after a complete browser refresh/clean-up, as well as a fresh installation of Firefox, my browser still reverts to the light / dynamic theme when I click out of the Add-Ons page. I will disable and remove all added themes and select the default and it will take effect on my browser, however when I ctrl+t or click new tab my browser reverts back to the light / dynamic theme.

Really upsetting seeing as I can't stand light themes and I prefer using Firefox for my web development work however now Firefox is sidelined for Chrome (which I cannot stand using). Any and all help or input will be appreciated and if I can provide anything else to help I will gladly do so.
