Some of well known sites such as "drive.google.com" & "mail.yahoo.com" is resulting in "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue page" in Firefox. They are opening just fine in other browsers.

This issue has cropped up since past week in Firefox. Not sure what is the root cause behind the problem. I have tried re-installing Firefox, but still no change.

I have checked the certificates of those sites, and they are seems to be in order. I mean other browsers are able to open without issue, then why Firefox is not opening them for me?

Please let me know if this issue can be fixed in Firefox.

Because of extensive research I accomplish, I do not clear my history.

One of the useful inclusions of Opera, Chrome, et al. is sorting one's browsing history by date and time. When one selects "ALL," not only are page visits grouped by date, the time of the visit is included as well. This is especially helpful when I know the approximate date or time of a page visit as it allows me to focus on a specific time period. Similarly, if I do a general history search, Opera at least gives me the date of all of the returns. Again, this is most helpful if I wish to limit my search to a particular time period.

Firefox does none of this. Yes I can view today, yesterday, this month, last month, etc. on the home page but no further sorting is possible. For example, in December 2017, I have more than 2000 site visits. I remember that, a couple of weeks ago, I visited a site that discussed - whatever - but I don't remember the site name. Where in those 2000+ entries is a couple of weeks ago? I also remember that I visited that site close to the end of the day. Where in those 2000+ entries are those near the end of the day? You get the point.

Surely Firefox could be written to include date/time columns - yes?

I received some good suggestions about how to shut down without losing whatever was on the main window, when I didn't know another window had opened. Use Ctrl-Shft-Q.

But I so use X without thinking, that I have lost another load of tabs (that I reconstructed partially--they don't all show up in history unless every one has been opened in the last session, something I never, ever do) by using the wrong means to shut down FireFox.

Isn't this something FF should address? I can't be the only person losing 30+ tabs and unable to get them back bbc they weren't actually opened, but merely sitting on the Tab Row, so not in History.

This for me is gigantic. And reminding myself to use Ctrl-Shft-Q really is a lot to expect when every other program and app closes reliably with X.

Thanks.

Im In a difficult situation, I have updated firefox to the new version 2 weeks ago. This version disable my 'session manager' add ons, without my knowledge. Yesterday I closed my firefox with 150 tabs and shut it down, hoping that when I start firefox again today, and click on 'restore previous session' that my 150 tabs will appear before me like they normally do. Except what happened was that I opened firefox, the main page opened, and before I was able to click' restore previous session' and restore my 150 tabs, I accidentally closed the firefox window. I then reopened firefox again, and clicked 'restore previous session' and all it would do is open the main window, and all my 150 tabs are lost now. I thought i shouldnt worry, because I did see an article last year about how to restore the firefox session that existed before the previous session, and there was something in that article about a sessionstore,js file and a .bak file that needs to be renamed. I went to my Firefox Profile Folder, there I clicked on the 'Sessionstore-backups' folder, and found these files:

1.previous.jsonlz4 2.recovery.jsonlz4 3.recovery.baklz4 4. upgrade.jsonlz4-20171002220106 5. upgrade.jsonlz4-20171024165158 6. upgrade.jsonlz4-20171112125346

I saved a copy of these files in My documents, but I dont know what to do with these files, I tried to rename the .baklz4 file to sessionstore.js, but it didnt work, I tried renaming it to recovery.jsonlz4 but it still didnt work, It is 23rd november today and I have given up hope that I would be able to recover all 150 tabs from yesterday, but the file in point 6 which is called ' upgrade.jsonlz4-20171112125346' seems to be a backup file from 15th November, so I thought Id try and rename this file and recover my tabs from 15th November instead ( about 120 tabs in total). I have tried renaming this file to , recovery.jsonlz4, previous.jsonlz, session.jsonlz4, sessionstore.js, but everytime i restart firefox, it doesnt read this file, and gives me that one blank tab instead. Can anyone tell me how to restore the 15th November file and how to load the 120 tabs in that file please?

Thanks

Right now there is no easy way to get multiple files from an FTP site using firefox that I can find. Is it possible? If not, this would be a nice feature to add to a future version.

It would be easier to upload screenshots but after 5 minutes of the "working circle" go round I am thinking it does work.

I have a problem Two parts:

1. when go the Permission (by click the (i) preceding the site address it takes me to the Privacy and Security Page. Under Permisssion I find location and click settings. There are no sites listed and it will not allow me to search for a site. How do I find what is preventing or how can I prevent websites knowing or not knowing my location? Is there a global local setting I can not find? Previous searchable questions have incomplete answers or I not getting it.

1. A webite I use is failing gps location connection. I can not find way to see or change permission in Firefox mobile. How does one enable/disalbe Location and or allow GPS service? I don't have this probblem with Chrome or Edge so it is not the site. If it related to part 1, then I have just the one question.

The videos will play fine, but without any sound. There isn't a speaker button appearing on the tab either. Sound bar has Firefox volume on max.

Using Facebook video/voice call: Browser asks me for permission to use video and mic AND gives me dropdowns to configure devices for each. Figuring I probably won't need to configure these settings again, I checked "remember these settings" and hit OK. Started the call - video worked, but microphone did not, even though the device was tested and worked. Now I wanted to go back and look at the settings for which devices to use for video and microphone. My BIG mistake: telling Firefox to remember settings. Oh no!

At this point, I figured the internet would have the answer. I can't find anybody who has mentioned this issue. The question: where do I go to change the video device or microphone device for Firefox AFTER I hit "remember" the first time? Or is hitting "remember" the kiss of death for being able to change these settings in the future? I searched Firefox settings: apparently the only settings relevant to mic/webcam are to allow or disallow those devices. Not what I want. An additional question: does Firefox just go directly to the default devices specified by Windows? Regardless of what I told it the first time? That might explain it. If this is the case, it's a major design flaw that it even asked me which devices to use the first time.

There were a couple of posts asking the same thing I am, but no answers to either of the. You used to have that Theme and Font Size Changer but I hear that is not very useful anymore. Is there any other way to increase the text on tool bars and menus? It's just way too small. Text on web pages is fine but I can't hardly read the tool bars and menus unless I really squint. Why would you want to make it so terribly small with no way to adjust it?
