I've started getting a 400/Bad Request errors on various sites. I'm running FF 41.0. I cleared my cache/cookies, and it helped a little but still having issues. Some sites that don't work will work if you type the site differently. Some examples:

Doesn't work: www.youtube.com/ Works: https://www.youtube.com/

Doesn't work: Searching for anything in Amazon and this link http://www.amazon.com/Walking-God-through-Pain-Suffering/dp/0525952454/ref=tmm_hrd_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1418587605&sr=1-1 Works: This link for some reason and some others http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1594483493/ref=gno_cart_title_0?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Any ideas?

Kickass Torrents is a very popular torrent site, yet I find suddenly that it is blocked by firefox as a potential phishing site. This does not bode well for mozilla's reputation for supporting an open internet and freedom of choice. I found no way in the settings to even add or delete an individual exception to this site-blocking feature without completely disabling the blocking of attack sites and web forgeries.

I am visually disabled and due to my work I find myself needing to use develolper tools in firefox. Due to my visual disablity I require using a dark theme, which I'm happy firefox has, the problem is that I need more vivid contrast in the dark theme. Is there any way to either tweak the dark theme to make background black and text white as opposed to the more low contrast default dark theme? Is there an extension that can do this if not something that can be done via modifying a stylesheet etc? I'm using latest stable release of firefox on WIndows 10 where I also use a high contrast black theme.

Hi

I am often needing to use different public wifi's - so maybe this is why it is happening.

or maybe something else has happened as I installed a new add-on TabMix Plus..

or maybe I muffed something else up...I do not know.

But as of today, Firefox keeps blocking content on sites I visit all the time. I have cookies allowed.

So I click in the URL bar, and say allow. But each page, this is happening. Rather tedious.

How can I remind firefox, that this site is OK. I love its content, please allow it always. How can I say this automatically without having to click the icon in URL each time.

please see screenshot of icon I am receiving. The symbol gets a little red line thru it once I have clicked "allowed" thankyou

Node-Red, other browsers can log in, firefox can't

This is not a simple question to ask and is not very easy to explain. But I shall try.

I am running a program suite called "Node-Red" on another machine. Access is done via the "web". (http). Usually you just enter the IP address and you are into the edit screen. This is obviously not a good idea on a machine exposed to the net. So, you activate security settings. (See a bit later)

I am using Firefox as my main browser and I have activated security settings in Node-Red. Subsequently I can't log in. BUT! Other browsers can. (From other people) I have tried it and seen it once work. Sorry but that's all I have at this time. The information attached about my system is unedited, because as I said: I don't know what is needed at this stage.

I can get the "name" entered, but every time I click on the Password field, the cursor jumps back to the name field.

(Documents for what I am doing) https://nodered.org/docs/security.html

See attached image for what I see in FF. Please forgive the red arrows. I was talking to the Node-Red people about it also. "Luckily" someone else is having problems when using FireFox. But they can if they use another browser - as stated.

I don't know exactly what information (at this time) is needed. Alas it may require someone in here to install Node-Red and try it them selves.

I also appreciate that is a big ask. But it would seem I am not the only person with this problem and someone else has recently posted that they have the same problem.


What further complicated me asking here is I have a couple of other programs installed for password management and I had to go through the process of eliminating them.


So I am now at the point where it is pointing to FireFox and it not playing the game.


Thanks in advance for any help in resolving the problem.

I use the native dictation software for the Mac called Enhanced Dictation which is run locally from my computer. I'm running High Sierra. I need to be able to navigate around the screen using my voice.

The way I normally interact with clickable items on a website, using the Safari browser, is that I say the command "show numbers" and the dictation software maps a number to each clickable item on the webpage. Then I can speak the number and the software will click on that item. However, when I attempted to use the Firefox browser, and spoke the command "show numbers," no numbers appeared. The result is that I cannot navigate Firefox with my voice and thus your browser inaccessible to me. Perhaps Firefox is missing a type of framework for my software to interact with.

Hello,

in the newest updates of Firefox (37, 37.0.1, 37.0.2) i noticed some rendering bug. I don't discovered a pattern but always I saw this bud when I'm changing tabs or first load a page. This bad render of some elements I can see on several pages, but my screens are from one to show how it behaves.

On Firefox 36.0.4 or Firefox Developer Edition 39 everything works perfectly. I attach a screenshots and link for this page: http://www.mythemelab.com/fermstalbfm/index.html - this is project presentation, a few elements with backgrounds to show how website will look and work...

I use Firefox on a Mac Pro 3,1 with ATI Radeon HD 5770 / OS X 10.10.3

Hi there,

We have Firefox 30 on one of our servers and it will not let us access any of our internal sites. It gives a message:

401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials.

It doesn't even prompt for credentails. Other browsers work fine. I tried a solution from a previous post but it didn't work: "you can try to enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1. double-click it and change its value to true."

What else could be causing this issue?

Thanks, Rhonda

My home page is my companies home page which requires authentication. Before the latest update I had no problems, but now it won't let me log in. I enter the credentials and hit OK and the box just keeps coming back up. I can log in via Safari with no problem so it appears that it's something in the security settings but I can't figure out what. I've tried a number of fixes that I've seen for similar issues, but none seam to work.

As an aside... it is way too difficult to ask a question through Mozilla Support!

Hi all,

We have discovered an odd issue with Mozilla (several current versions tested) and one of our websites. There is a two stage login - username & password followed by eg mothers maiden name on subsequent page

When a new instance of firefox is opened then on completing the login answers the user is immediately returned back to the login page with a 'your session has timed out' message - basically our software returns our timeout page. If, on the same page you then login again everything is fine. If you close your window and open a new one then the problem occurs again. This is not cache related as I have done a lot of testing which almost certainly eliminates that.

Could anybody please offer further ideas? The site is https I have after googling tried a couple of random things like adding the site to exceptions list but no change. I have used developer console to follow the network calls and without a massive analysis, things seem to be correct.

I have tested in safe mode also so it is not related to extensions or add ins

Thanks for any advice.

Hi All,

We are experiencing an issue with random intermittent Mozilla Proxy Authentication prompts. We are running Mozilla firefox in a Windows domain and using a clearswift proxy server. I've tried a large number of configuration changes with Firefox but still get these annoying prompts. This obviously looks bad to our user base. We do not suffer the same issues with IE11 or Google Chrome.

Please can anyone help before we look to remove this software and go for an alternative browser?

Many Thanks,

Kirk

For the past few weeks, I've been unable to log into my Pinterest account. I use Firefox as my primary browser. I've gone back and forth with Pinterest tech support, to no avail, and they sent me here. <eye roll> I've tried all the easy things...deleting cache and cookies, trying in safe mode, trying with another browser, making sure the browser is up to date, etc. Pinterest won't let me log in on IE or Chrome either, on this computer; yet on my Windows Surface tablet, I can log in with no trouble.

Here's the error message I get: The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I didn't add any software right before this happened. I have always been able to get into Pinterest with no trouble, up till now. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Elizabeth

I keep three profiles on my Network Attached Server (ReadyNAS Ultra 4), where they get backed up every night. Firefox v32 opens fine on my older Ubuntu 12.04LTS box and my even older WinXP box.

My newer Ubuntu 14.04LTS machine came with Firefox v35 (if I recall correctly). It wouldn't open my profiles. I upgraded to v37. It still will not open any of the three profiles on the server. FF will start only if I use a locally-stored profile. I can open them on a VMWare virtual WindowsXP machine on this box (again, v32), but not natively in Ubuntu. I get the message:

Firefox cannot use the profile "Private" because it is in use.

I don't know if this is a bug with v35+ or something peculiar about my install of Ubuntu 14.04. Chrome works fine, and I have no other problems with the files on the server. If it were a permissions issue, I don't think it would work on my 12.04 box.

Please help. I'd like to use Firefox again someday.
