I need to do a factory reset on my Windows 10 computer, but I don't want to lose the web session I currently have open, so I need to know how I can restore the session after reinstalling Firefox again. Is there a temporary internet files or cookies folder where I can just backup all the files from and put them in there again later, or what?

Since the latest version 66.0.3 (64-bit) I get messages similar to the following. Often there is no specific error code.


Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to secure.tesco.com. SSL peer reports incorrect Message Authentication Code. Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

Ironically the html source shows the page is there and complete. Under 'Preferences->Privacy & Security I have unchecked 'Block dangerous and deceptive content" to no effect.

All is fine under Safari. This is a critical issue as I am having to abandon my much preferred Firefox for Safari, which does not have issues.

The main "Firefox" menu is in Japanese, but all the rest of the menus (File, Edit, View, History, etc.) are in English.

How can I change the "Firefox" menu's language back to English? I've already tried it in settings.

Ever since updating to Firefox v 66, the browser won't load webpages until I disable ublock origin in the add-ins page. It's very repeatable, I disable ublock and the page loads. Enable it again, and new pages won't load. I've also disabled all my other add-ins when doing this, so it's not some weird interaction between add-ins.

Normally I would consider this a ublock problem, but it didn't change. This started happening with the Firefox v 66 update. I've searched, but nobody else seems to have the same problem. What can I try (besides getting rid of ublock)?

Hello

I have had this issue for 3 days now. I am unable to access yahoo mail or yahoo in general because I get warning potential risk ahead message. I had to make twitter account to be able to get in touch with yahoo support but they just offered a yahoo link which, of course, I am unable to open because of "potential risk ahead". I tried solutions suggested by people here at mozilla support, like clearing history, cache etc but it didn't work. I also tired accessing yahoo via internet explorer and chrome (installed on my father's laptop, windows 10) Of course same message appears. I am using windows 7 64 bit. I also tried Edge and of course it says yahoo site is not secure. I have never had these kind of problems before. I was always able to access yahoo via FIrefox and other browsers. It's really damn annoying because i see no solution to this damn crap. Also I am unable to upload a 170kb screenshot to show you the issue. Just keeps loading and loading and it doesn't stop. So I guess I will just have to describe it:

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to guce.yahoo.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for guce.yahoo.com. The certificate is only valid for *.amz-aws.jp. Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

https://guce.yahoo.com/consent?gcrumb=gscOGxw&trapType=login&done=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.yahoo.com%2F&src= Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match the server’s certificate. HTTP Strict Transport Security: false HTTP Public Key Pinning: false

I've tried a few things:

- I deleted the folder "sessionstore-backups" in my profile folder and restarted Firefox. - Refreshing Firefox didn't solve the problem. - Disabling most extensions didn't help either.

Has anyone a clue?

It's really annoying and I can't get rid of it.

I've got this issue on my laptop as well. Laptop and PC! They're both connected via the Firefox Sync option.

Thank you for any help!

Best, DD

I thought I posted this problem some months ago for Firefox Support and didn't get any help so I will try again. My computers are running Windows 10 (1809) and using the latest version of Firefox (66.0.3 64-bit) .

I set up Firefox and went through all of the steps and Firefox will NOT sync to another computer! I would like to get this fixed soon and don't want to waste time doing unnecessary steps. This is why phone Support should be available.

How can this be resolved soon?

Thanks

No problems before I signed up for an account to use Firefox Send. Immediately after that I started to get an annoying pop-up window asking for my master password immediately on browser start.

I want to be able to browse sites without entering a password, and I also want to continue using a master password but only for sites which require a log-in.

I deleted my Firefox account in the hopes that would fix the problem, but the pop-ups keep coming.

I tried unchecking "ask to save logins and passwords for websites" in preferences but that didn't work.

I have not deleted my saved log-ins and tried a new/clean browser because I spent a long time getting all my add-ons and log-ins set up and I don't want to have to reinstall everything, and I am concerned that if I save my profile that it will just re-install the problem.

These sites are not in my history, nor bookmarks. How do I remove these sites?

On many pages (commercial), when I click a link to look at another page, clicking the "Go Back One Page" button results in the original page scrolling down a varying amount.

For example, I visit CNN.com. I then select an article I want to read. When reading is complete I press the "Back" button, which returns me to the original page, but also scrolls that original page, sometimes just a few lines, but also sometimes to the very bottom of the page.

This only happens on the newest (66.0) version of Firefox upgraded yesterday. It does not happen with other browsers. It does happen with Firefox started in safe mode. I also checked the carat (^) scroll in "Options" and this was not selected.

This also happens whether I use the Firefox Page Back Button, or the "Back" button on my mouse.

Thanks Doc

I have a problem that seems to be limited to one group of sites. When I load a "story" on Newsbusters.org, CNS News, etc, it used to be that comments from Disqus on that story also loaded. The site seems to no longer even load or try to load these comments sections in Firefox. I just checked with Chrome, and it looks like it always did with comments from Disqus loaded below the story.
