Firefox, specifically the Windows version, has started generating PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR errors on https:// web sites. What I find interesting is that Firefox says the page is not secure in the address bar - even though the page is secure. Firefox on Mac and IOS do not have this issue. I'm also running Bitdefender Anti-virus with Encrypted Web scan. With that feature turned off, blocked pages seem to work. I found yesterday that logging out of Sync while Encrypted Web scan is on allowed the blocked pages to load.

I deleted Firefox and re-installed it, thinking I'd fixed the problem. No such luck. I've tried all the other fixes I can find but none of them work. This is clearly a Firefox issue and not an issue with Bit Defender since it only occurs (and has been widely reported for years) with Firefox for Windows.

On a side note, even support.mozilla.org gets blocked.

Anyone have a real fix that will work?

Experiencing slow upload speeds on 128.0.

Recently got a 1 gig connection and the upload speeds are all over the place. While I prefer Firefox, I did try a couple of different browsers and they both gave me pretty symmetrical speeds close to the 1 gig speed.

I've used Firefox daily for more than 15 years. Suddenly, it locked me out and covers my screen with a dropdown asking for a Master Password. There is no way to get past it as I have no record of ever having or using one. eMails to Mozilla about this have gone unanswered. I am happy to erase and replace, but then I lose all the Passwords I have stored Firefox . How do I get the words I need and get to the Passwords? Thank you.

Windows 11 Pro - Firefox blocks Instagram.

I have no site blocks on or in my Firefox browser. There aren't any plug-ins enable or preventing Firefox from opening Instagram and sometimes other sites, yet it does this now. Whether it is 1 tab or 8 tabs, the outcome is the same.

I've cleared the cache (daily), browser cookies, temp files (daily) and even restarted my computer many times, yet this issue still persists.

I have attached the error message and proof that I have the latest Firefox update.

Note: Other web browsers I use, don't have this issue. This issue is only with Firefox.

Please help me resolve this issue. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Moin! I have been having a problem with downloading things from the Internet with the Firefox browser for some time now. It fails every time. I have reinstalled the browser, I have started it in safe mode. In other browsers the download works as usual, but not in Firefox. I have also reset my network settings, both on the computer and on the router, nothing seems to help. DNS does not work either.

Kind regards, Kevin

Hi, i would like to set my pdf handling as follows

1. When opening a pdf link, i need the file to open in browser, don't want it to download 2. When opening from download history, i want it to open in my pdf software

I believe this was the default in old firefox(some years ago). Currently if i set it to open in browser, point 1 will work but 2 won't (i have to right click and choose "open in xx app") if i set it to always open in other app, 2 will work but 1 won't. Back then i tried some settings which downloads the file to temp folder and open from there, i don't want that (not needed the file in download history) pls let me know if there is a solution. Thanks

I took no action to refresh or change my Firefox settings before saved passwords disappeared. Bookmarks and history are intact. I checked the data in profiles and the only json file listed is within profiles:default release. Within this, root directory shows logins.json1.corrupt five times for 18th July. There is a logins.backup file added on 19th July. Can I use this to restore my passwords?
