Since late last night, I've been having issues connecting to Facebook when using Firefox. Through my own troubleshooting efforts, I've run multiple Virus and Malware scans via AVG, Malware Bytes, TDSS Killer and Microsoft Safety Scanner, to no avail. What doesn't help is that when checking Facebook in Chrome, the error code I get is NET::ERR_SSL_OBSOLETE_VERSION relating to TLS 1.0 and 1.1. Are there other things I should try on my end as to the cause of this issue?

To my knowledge, the issue is only with Facebook. Other websites I frequent are connecting with no issues.

Is there a reason no one has developed a simple Restart browser button, that will open the browser in the same, last session?

I know you can do it from "About:Profiles", but it would be convenient to have it on the toolbar. I'm sure a lot of people would appreciate it.

I'm using Windows 10 and have installed FF 92.0 as the default browser and recently installed MS Works 9.

When I click on a link within a document it does not open. The cursor does change to a hand & it does say "CTRL +click to follow link https….", but that doesn’t work. However it does turn on the Underline function in the word processor.

Clicking on links has worked for years with Windows 7 and MS Works 7. I don’t see any settings in Works 7 or 9 that control this.

Is there a FF setting that enables this?

I just reinstalled Firefox. There was a "search with amazon.ca" at the bottom of the options when I clicked on the search toolbar. (This was not a suggested search engine on the bottom row, with the other search engines -- it was popping up with the list of websites I visit.)

I deleted Amazon.ca from the list of suggested search engines and now instead of "search with Amazon.ca" it simply shows "Amazon.ca Low prices fast shipping" in its place and I can't seem to get rid of this. And I want this gone for a number of reasons, the least of which is that it takes me to Amazon.com where I don't even have an account.

I have just installed 91.1 ESR. On opening the first time I am offered to "Choose a theme" or "Not now". I chose Not now.

I expected that I would then be able to go into the settings menu somewhere and find the options:

  • Streamlined Toolbar and menus
  • Modern tabs
  • Fresh icons and clearer messages

I do not find these under Settings nor under the installed Themes. I'm not even sure these are a Theme as much of a Style??

Any help on this is appreciated. Searching the title was of no help.

Costco.com website will not display store locations or product reviews when using FireFox browser. Website works fine when using Chrome browser. This is a recent problem as all info on the Costco website displayed properly with Firefox not that long ago. As an example, when I enter my zip code to find the closest stores, nothing is displayed now when a map and store list used to come up. I've tried changing various settings, but no go. Any advice would be appreciated...

v92

This issue started happening only after v92 self-installed, as far as I can tell.

When I start typing in the address bar, even one letter, websites I frequently visit immediately autocomplete. I do NOT have these websites as saved bookmarks. I have cleared history within Firefox, with CCleaner, and with Privazer, but doing so does not affect this behavior. (CCleaner and Privazer also clear everything else, as far as I can tell.)

In Settings, under "Address Bar > When using the address bar, suggest", I have Bookmarks checked. If I uncheck Bookmarks, the behavior stops. BUT AGAIN, I DON'T HAVE THESE SITES BOOKMARKED.

I did a search in C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla for files containing the web addresses and found that they are contained in a filed called SiteSecurityServiceState.txt in one of Profiles (not the current one as far as I can tell). I don't know if this is relevant. And when I alter the web address in this file (e.g., change abc.com to axxbc.com) and save the file, the auto-complete behavior doesn't change.

Finally, I have an Excel file with hyperlinks to my favorite news and blog sites, which I use frequently. These are the same sites that are auto-completing. But if I delete this file, the behavior still occurs. I don't know how the existence of such a file could cause the behavior, but I thought I'd mention it.

Anyway, does anyone know where these addresses could be coming from or stored? Thanks.

We are running FF ESR 78.14.0. I see that ESR 91.1 is now out. I have seen this article on Firefox ESR release cycle, but not able to find out what the schedule is (ie overlap) for 78 and 91 releases. I am trying to do some upgrade planning. I expect 91.2 will auto upgrade and like to know how soon, otherwise I may need to manual update machines.

It would be nice if this page could be kept up to date for the relevant releases.

Driving the question is a specific issue with QuickBooks Payments not working in 78, which I am assuming has to do with something they consider obsolete security wise.

I want to have a different browser settings for both browsing the web and controlling my media player.

I currently do this by using a different browser, firefox for web and opera for a local web based music player.

Ideally I would like a browser instance that only has only Close and Minimise buttons and retains size and position. I cannot seem to do this with any browser, they all want to give me tabs, menus, shortcuts, in short, to much clutter. I have managed to create a chromeless window but then that becomes the default for all browing windows.

I would like to achieve this with just Firefox.

My last try was this, with Chrome because Firefox wouldnt play at all.

--app="data:text/html,<script>window.location='http://moode.local/#notarget';window.resizeTo(750,600);window.moveBy(246, 50);</script>"

Hiya, I use bookmarks to keep a track of music I plan to listen to, and I had set up my folders so I could see everything in a subfolder on my screen. Now the font size or something changed and I can't see everything all at once on my screen. I don't have the time or energy right now to even think about trying to reorganise it all. Is there a way I can lower the font size or something to get back the space I lost?
