I was using Firefox and my system was low on resources so it killed the process using the most memory which was Firefox. When it restarted every page showed up as garbage. I've cleared cache. I've refreshed Firefox. I've reinstalled. I've rebooted. Nothing seems to work. mozilla.org appears to work but every other site I try looks like the attached image. When I view the source of a page that looks like garbage, the source looks perfectly fine. I'm running 77.0.1 64 bit on Windows 7. Any ideas?

No add-ons coming from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/ can be installed in my Mac, all because of a single issue ("Download failed. Please check your connection."). I've noticed that images in this site cannot load properly as well. I checked the console and it seems that the GET request was responded with 404. Install requests sent to other websites seem to be working. I successfully installed zotero from its website and some other add-ons via downloaded .xpi files. However, some .xpi's cannot be installed directly either. I got a message saying this add-on appears to be corrupt.

I duckduckwent this issue and tried all the following solutions (though none has helped): 1. Added "xpinstall.enabled => true" and "xpinstall.signatures.required => false" in about:config; 2. Downloaded the .xpi file directly using other browsers, but when I tried to add it manually, I got the message saying this add-on is corrupt. 3. I tried InstallTrigger.install({URL: "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/1168281/adblock_plus-3.4.2-an+fx.xpi?src=search"}) in the console and still got the connection error. I clicked on several install links in add-ons websites and they came back with 404. I think these links were redirecting me to addons.mozilla.org.

I don't have any antivirus software in my Mac, at least not that I know of. I enabled "allow site to install add-ons" and "allow pop-ups", etc.

Firefox 73.0.1

It is being used on a home desktop running Win 7 Home Premium.

In 'Tools->Options->General,' a blue link states 'Your Browser Is Being Managed By Your Organization.'

When I click on the link, a new tab opens with 'Enterprise Policies' stating:

'Policy Name': 'Certificates'

'Policy Value ': ImportEnterpriseRoots'

'Value': 'True'

Are they the settings that I want or am I missing something?

The last couple of months I have not been able to use my Outlook and send emails or save drafts. I have gone to outlook support but since it still works with Chrome and IE they say its firefox's issue and have no other help for me. I've cleared cache and history. extensions etc.. So I am coming to you now. I do have a VPN but outlook still won't work with it not on. So I am at a loss as to what to do. I don't like chrome nor IE and I've always had firefox and I want to continue that. I was still able to send emails when I first got the VPN so Im not sure what it is except very, very annoying. The same is for my laptop and that does not have the VPN.

The current update in Firefox has NOTHING to do with me. Nothing that is added or fixed has anything to do with my system or how I use the browser. (This happens FREQUENTLY) I am getting NAGGED by Firefox to install it. (Settings are be notified about updates, I choose when to install). .

I always check and read the detailed release notes. I REALLY resent being forced to install updates that do not relate to my system or what I do in any way!

Please Firefox, PROVIDE OPTIONS to SKIP updates! This feature/option is LONG LONG OVERDUE! Make it so!

Indeed I cannot see it within the installed plugins and if I try to "install by file (np-mswmp.dll)" it gets me an error of file corruption...

I really don't know what to do anymore...Where can I download it?

Hey all, I am really getting tired of seeing the "news and interests" pics that pop up from bottom of home page using Firefox. Can I remove, delete or otherwise get RID of it...? I use bing as a home page...maybe that's the problem...LOL...! I just like it because it's simple and uncluttered EXCEPT for those damn pics at the bottom. I can turn them off with the custom control pull down...the 3 bars on the upper right side of bing home page, but after you close FF, the pics just come back...the custom controls for bing home page don't stay locked...! I'm using Windows 10, x64 Home, latest FF updates, only using ABP, BitWarden, as FF Add-ons.

Thanks
