Firefox upgraded recently to 81.0.2. After the upgrade I can no longer connect to my bank’s web site. Firefox displays this failure message:

Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to xx.xxxxxxx.com 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.

The bank’s customer-no-service help desk politely advised that their system is working, this is a Firefox problem, check the Firefox browser settings, use another browser.

I am not a browser security settings expert and do not want to be . . . I have no clue as to how to fix this . . . so what do I do?

Can I revert to the previous version of Firefox? How? Thanks.

In the history section that opens with ctrl+j, the Added and Last modified columns are blank and only sort by name order when sorting by them. What information is supposed to be in those columns and how can I have that information tracked? Also while I'm at it, what information would be displayed in the Tags column, which is also empty to me.

Thanks for your answer.

Dear community,

I would like to bring up a topic that is DRIVING ME CRAZY. I am developer and frequently access my own services on unsecured http servers for testing. Spin up a new docker container, test it, tear it down. No SSL required, no time to mess with encryption.

But if you type in https just a single time for your http server, you are f*#&ed. Sorry for the wording, but this is how it is. You think "OH NO, WHAT DID I DO? NOT AGAIN!!!" Because it is just impossible to access the service with http in the future, Firefox has it locked to SSL (Domain and Port). But of course there is no SSL so it will NEVER work.

Latest example: JetBrains TeamCity. They have a simple Docker container I want to access with Firefox. I spin it up, connect with Firefox with http and it immediately tells me "Secure Connection Failed". WHAT? WHY? I typed http. Why secure? Why can't I simply connect? Using curl on CLI just gives me a beautiful HTML response.

I understand that for the majority of users SSL is a good thing. But shouldn't there at least be an OPTION to disable all this enforced SSL usage? My beloved Firefox is my everyday productivity killer. It makes me sad.

whenever I go to sign in to youtube within a container tab it displays error message "oops". It redirects to the oops page every time (https://www.youtube.com/oops). I've tried disabling all other adds on but this makes no difference. It works fine for all the other google sites I use!

Any ideas on what I should be doing?

When I am done with Facebook, I log out as usual. Some recent change has occurred, and I no longer am asked for my password when logging back in, just clicking on my recent login (see attached) takes me right to Facebook, which I do not want! I did not choose to save my login and password, in fact I can't even find Facebook in the list of my saved logins. Does anyone have any idea why this important security issue has suddenly developed?

why does the logins and passwords page show https://account.live.com as the website? This is a microsoft web page. Doesnt firefox lockwise use its own service. Every time I reboot my computer firefox requires I log back in and and a page appears to set up firefox. I do it and it still appears every reboot. My preference such as menu bar and book mark disappears after each reboot. My most visited sites is blank until I dismiss one of the listed sites. This all use to work but now doesn't.

Hola

Cada vez que uso el certificado digital, queda de forma automática para su uso, sin volver a preguntar para los futuros accesos. Viene motivado porque la primera vez que haces uso del certificado queda siempre marcada la casilla de verificación que indica "Recordar esta decisión". Si la desmarcas, al volver a acceder la próxima vez, vuelve a estar marcada de forma automática, por lo que tienes que desmarcarla antes de acceder con el certificado. ¿Cómo puedo hacer que de forma predeterminada esa casilla de verificación de "Recordar esta decisión" quede desmarcada para futuros accesos? Gracias.

I have been using Firefox on a new computer since May 2018. I always had the setting for saving my browsing history turned on. Unfortunately, I have recently discovered that I can only view the history of the last 6 months (February 15 to today). Does this mean Firefox deleted the history from May 2018 to January 2020 unbeknown to me? Is it a matter of setting the places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages parameter in about:config to a certain level? I was able to set this parameter to a higher level now, but it did not help to recover the history. Is there any other way?
