whenever I try to login to the Home Depot website via the above url: www.homedepot.com or www.homedecorators.com I get this reply: "the connection to www.homedepot.com was interrupted 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 have contacted Home Depot and they say all is good. I used my iPod which has web capabilities and it can connect to both of those websites. The new version of Firefox must have some kind of security I need to change. Please help.

The exisiting thread on this topic is next to worthless. Has a whole bunch of unrelated "try this " stuff. Then there is a suggestion that sounds promising (tablet versus desktop mode) but no indication on how to switch between the two. If I can prevent this firefox window from hijacking my screen I may stay with it, but I am dissapointed the default seems to violate apple UI guidelines and also seems to be hard to change (e.g "act like a normal window" should be a prominent option in preferences.

Example: I'm on YouTube. I play a video. I click to expand to full screen. It SLOWLY slides stuff over. It SLOWLY expands to fill the screen. Was this someone's seriously lame attempt at trying to be cool? This wasn't always like this. And Safari is still: click the full screen icon and it's full screen INSTANTLY.

how can I make Firefox expand a video to full screen INSTANTLY?

Thank you!

Hello,

Ive been using firefox for a while now, and until now, ive never experienced a problem like this.

Firefox crashed last night while i was asleep, and when i woke up this morning to turn it back on, the crash reporter asked me if i wanted to restart firefox, i did so, however when it loaded, rather than asking if i wanted to restore my previous session, it loaded a blank page which had an unusual looking blank patch at the top where the tabs bar is supposed to be, with the tabs loading below it.

The tabs i had loaded were all very important to me, and i would like to find a way to restore them if possible, however i have been unable to find anything on the other help pages that describes of fixes my problem.

Please help if you are able, it would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. I apologize for not including an image of the buggy window, it didnt occur to me to take a screenshot before i closed it.

I keep Firefox open at almost all times and when I load a new page and try and play a video, whether on youtube, Facebook, or other source, it won't play. It just stays at the loading circle the whole time. The only time it works is when I completely exit out of Firefox and re-start it. This is quite frustrating for me because I often have multiple tabs open with other things I am working on that I don't want to close. I would appreciate any advice. Thank you

When I open a pdf file with the firefox viewer, there are page thumbnails in a sidebar on the left of the document. The sidebar overlays the document such that I have to close the sidebar in order to view the document. This had not been an issue for me previously, but I don't think I changed a setting, and can't find a solution that doesn't involve me doing something each time I open a file.

When I enlarge the window, the toolbar doesn't overlay the document, so if it is possible to change the default size of the window, that would work also.

I'm using firefox for mac in case that matters.

Thanks!

I have been using Zotero , the referencing tool, on Firefox without a problem.

The icon has disappeared from the toolbar. I can still get into the extension by opening it the long way but I need it back on the toolbar. The message I get is "Zotero could not be verified for use in Firefox and has been disabled".

I don't dare do much as it currently has hundreds of references on it that I cannot afford to lose. Of course it is a verified extension, it is designed to be used with Firefox and I have been using it for 3 years!!

I would value help but please keep it really simple as my computer savvy is basic. How do I stop Firefox from disabling it? I looked this up on your site and was directed to Firefox Configuration Editor which I can't actually find. Sigh. I wish your system would not mess with something so important when I have work to hand in!

Kind regards,

Kristin

I am running 10.9.5 on my Mid 2011 Mac desktop. It is successfully running Firefox version 58.0.2 but keeps telling me there is a critical update needed. I have downloaded Firefox 60.0.2 MANY times and "'installed" it, but after the "update" it says it's still running 58.0.2. Is version 60 not compatible with 10.9.5? Suggestions on how to fix appreciated.

SInce last update browser history (Mac OS 10.9.5 with no intention to update) will not delete by any method - Using scrolling keys, add-ons, tools -- nothing works. I have read all I could find in the forum and tried all of it with no success. I've tried clearing entire history, just a day's worth, individual items -- nothing works. If this is a a glitch in latest update(s), is there a fix? Thank you.

I'm using FirefoxDeveloperEdition on a Mac.

If a website sends me JSON data with a content-type header "application/json", then firefox displays the data using a very friendly built-in JSON viewer.

If the website sends exactly the same data, but with a content-type header "application/vnd.api+json", then firefox only knows how to save the file.

In the preferences, under "Files and applications", I can see an entry for "application/vnd.api+json" (but not "application/json").

How can I tell firefox to use its built-in viewer for responses with a jsonapi mime type?

On some web pages eg http://www.zen169231.zen.co.uk/jimsplace/beginwinders.htm (and others), when clicking on an alternate topic, the page appears without a scroll bar and will not scroll with the mouse wheel either. This only happens in Firefox and not Safari, which I do not normally use as I prefer Firefox. Many thanks.

As of the newest update, if I start to type something into the address bar, I get random search suggestions as if I were the using the search bar instead. How do I disable this? It's kind of annoying and it really bothers me. I read in another article that if I went to about:config and checked 'I'll be careful,' it would stop, but I'm worried it may screw up my browser. Is there any other way to fix this? Or should i just move on to a superior browser?

I am looking for a preference I can embed in a CKK2 deployment of Firefox that will disable the installation of apps. ie. browser.apps.enabled (Boolean, Default=True, True permits apps to be installed, False denies any attempt at installing apps).

Barring that, I'd need to make some way to make the Tools>Apps option go away and advise the network admin to blacklist the apps marketplace site.

Thank you!
