I can't seem to connect to Google.com anymore. I get

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

as the error. I've tried various things like deleting certificates, refreshing firefox, and even uninstalling firefox. Nothing works and I don't want to go back to Edge. Google.com works fine on edge, and I have a document saved as a start up tab that works fine on firefox. Drive also doesnt work, but accounts.google.com works so I can sign in.

Hi:

Two questions:

1. I would like to block all cookies for all websites (at once, not one-by-one by website) and allow cookies only for websites identified as exceptions. I know how to enter the exception one-by-one, but could not figure out the rest. Is there a way to do this?

2. I entered 3 websites (one-by-one) to block them from storing cookies (in Manage exceptions). They show up on the list (under Manage Exceptions), but under Manage Data, these websites still stored cookies. Then I went to one of these websites and selected View Page Info>Permissions and selected blocking cookies. The website still stored cookies. How can one prevent websites that appear to be selected to block, to actually block storage of cookies? Either I am doing something incorrectly or this doesn't work.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Okay I just uploaded the new version of firefox I think 83, and every time I restart my computer or anything like that I have to re-log back into EVERYTHING. All my google accounts everything that require a password. It has for the most part my passwords saved but it i a huge hassle especially since I work from home it eats up a lot of time.

It doesn't save my tabs I had left open either. I can get them back when I go to sync tabs but I have to do it one at a time. It literally takes me back to the "Important News: Changes to your Firefox" page every time and its been days and its super frustrating. If I have to do this every time I will have to switch over to chrome which would be a bummer. I have tried fixing it in my preferences section of firefox and made sure everything is lining up there so it should be saving my info but no matter what I do it just takes me back to that page along with my ad blocker and honey page as if it was my first time signing in

Please help I can't do this every time I log in

Plainly speaking, I don't like the new address bar, how it auto completes my searches or the results it pulls. I didn't like it when it was defaulted to being on starting with version 75 but I was able to easily switch a few setting in about:config to fix it. Those settings no longer affect the address bar as of update 77.

The settings I had changed were:

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus browser.urlbar.update1 browser.urlbar.update1.interventions browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips

which were all set to false. I saw that setting "browser.urlbar.disableExtendForTests" to "true" might be the solution but, while it does stop the address bar from expanding when using it, it also stops it from expanding at all so the websites that would come up from searching can no longer be seen either (they are still called and using the down arrow will let me scroll through the results, I just can't see any of them). It also doesn't fix the results issue which I would say is the most important.

I would like to know what I need to do so that: 1. The results it shows me are no longer based on frequent visit (basically, the pre-update search system, as is they are scattered and look messy, pulling many different sites in a seemingly random order and it's not particularly useful) 2. It no longer autocompletes results (IE. "F" autocompleting to "facebook.com", this is always something that has bothered me regardless is context) 3. It no longer pops out/expands when in use (admittedly this is mostly an aesthetic issue but I still don't like how it looks)

When I go to the Yahoo main page, using Google and selecting Yahoo News - Current News it shows content but when you try to action anything it doesn't do anything and then shows an error. (see attached screenshots).

I have carried out all the recommended procedures including cookies, cache, etc and restarted Firefox with all Add-ons disabled and it still does not help with this problem.

I have used Yahoo for years and never had this problem and I have tried using Edge and Chrome and everything works as it should so it is definitely a Firefox issue.

So any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I have noticed that the favicons on a website are not being created when I bookmark a new site or when I use a previous bookmark, they are not updating.

They are showing as a world globe when first created.

They used to always work so I can only assume that one of the Firefox updates has stopped this working so can someone provide any information to help get this fixed?

Thanks.

Hi, I have used Firefox on my desktop pc using Windows o/s many years with minimal problem. Last few weeks Firefox operating strangely. Starts off fine then after opening a few tabs will not open others. Seems to be searching for new url but no show. When I close it down to re-open fresh a pop-up box appears with option 'close firefox'. Only when selected will firefox re-open. That then works fine for a few tabs then will not open after that. I have tried Refresh, Restart without add-ins, Safe mode. None have removed the problem. I have thought about Uninstall then reinstall a 'clean' firefox, but worried about losing all my data. The problem seems to have started a few weeks back after a Windows 10 update but I am not sure about that. Any help gratefully received. Thanks.

Hey guys,

Has anybody seen this?

As of the last few days, Firefox is starting to show jobs at Glassdoor like the image sent here, as per Glassdoor I have cleared the cache and cookies, but it still shows it like this, they also suggested to use another browser, which I did and they don't show it the same way, I don't know if this is a bug in Firefox or a problem in Glassdoor's code, but it's pretty annoying.

I have the DuckDuckGo search engine as the only search engine in my list of search engines. There is a very annoying issue with the way Firefox handles searches.

When I enter text into the DuckDuckGo search box two things can happen after hitting Enter to perform the search. If the cursor was positioned just below the search box where Change Search Settings button is located, after hitting Enter the the search defaults to the Options/Search page. This requires reloading my home page retyping my search query and ensure that the cursor isn't located over the Change Search Settings. Since the search engine textbox is located high up on the page instead of in the middle my cursor frequently ends up positioned over the Change Search Settings button. Since I am only using one search engine, it would be great if the Change Search Settings button could be disabled. Can This be done? I haven't been able to disable it with Firefox version 83.0 (64 bit).
