I am facing the problem to open the sites. When I used the network, it show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.google.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please let me know your suggestion and comments.

After Firefox updated to 68.0 the other day, I have found myself being plagued by it making multiple processes in the Task Manager yet again. I have already tried the following:

1) Already tried about:config to change browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2/browser.tabs.remote.autostart from true to false. It is set, but absolutely nothing has changed.

2) I have tried going into Options>Performance and limiting the Content Process Limit to 1 instead of 4. The setting was saved, and yet it has not changed a thing.

3) Ending these processes only results in my tabs crashing, and reloading them only adds another Firefox process.

But as it turns out here: https://www.ghacks.net/2019/05/17/going-forward-multi-process-cant-be-turned-off-anymore-in-firefox/ Firefox has removed the option to turn this off entirely after updating.

My computer can't handle having more than 1 Firefox process open and I want to disable multiple processes, otherwise everything will lag horribly. Is there any way I can permanently disable the multiple processes?

I use firefox and just got a new pc. I want to have the same bookmarks toolbar on firefox on the new pc. How do I export my bookmarks toolbar from my old pc?

I tried exporting/importing the "bookmarks.html" file, but the toolbar on the new pc is empty. The bookmarks toolbar was not exported.

Do I have to recreate the toolbar by hand, one site at a time? That's very bad. I have literally hundreds of bookmarks on my firefox toolbar.

It's good to have those built-in shortcuts, but it's stupid you can't modify them. When I use this website I can't input the division sign by pressing / on the keypad because it's the shortcut for Quick Find. I guess this is because the place to input is not a normal text box like in WolframAlpha , but part of the whole webpage(?). Add the function to customise shortcuts is much easier than let Firefox recognise and deal with this situation, I think. In fact, most software supports customising shortcuts, so I'm surprised to find there's no way for Firefox to do that.

When maximized, a block box in the top-left corner of the browser covers the favicon of the first tab. When not maximized, the tabs shift to the right such that the box is no longer covering any part of the first tab.

When I start with add-ons disabled, the black box disappears. However, setting my theme to default, removing all my add-ons, refreshing and then re-installing Firefox didn't fix the problem.

I also noticed that if I enable the menu bar, the black box leaves the tabs alone and instead covers the 'File' menu.

Any idea how to get rid of it?

I liked the idea of pinned tabs because I was thinking of them as being a way of having multiple "homepages", i.e. when I open my browser, they open automatically. However, they're stored in session data, which means that pinned tabs get lost whenever I close my browser because I have Firefox set up to clear a bunch of different session/history data on close. I'm not sure which setting is causing this, but I'd like a way to have a page open on startup without having to compromise my privacy, so I'd prefer to just pin tabs on startup somehow without having it be related to session history. Is there any way to do this?

I'm having a lot of trouble with the URL autocomplete function not working. I have been trying to solve this for a couple days and nothing is working to enable the URL autocomplete. Here are some of the things I have tried - does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much!

-Made sure the browser.urlbar.autoFill item is set to 'true' -Adjusted Firefox History settings to 'Remember History' -Adjusted Firefox Address Bar settings (Browsing History, Bookmarks, and Open Tabs are checked) -Cleared cache and cookies -Reset Firefox several times -Reinstalled Firefox (without deleting profile and Firefox data)

I have attached screenshots of how my 'about:config' looks, as well as the 'Important Modified Preferences,' in case there's an error that someone else can catch.

(I am running Firefox 68.0.2 on macOS Mojave Version 10.14.5)

VR kit used: Valve Index

Hello,

WebVR implementation in Firefox has improved significantly but still some bugs are prohibitive from using it reliably. More specifically, integration with SteamVR appears to be problematic. Here's a test scenario.

How to replicate the problem:

0) Ensure SteamVR is installed and operational, using a compatible VR kit.

1) Visit https://sketchfab.com/AliceVision/models

2) Open one of the models and select the VR icon (bottom right).

3) Once the 3D model is presented in the VR headset, close the 3D model from within the web page and return to the list of 3D models (main page).

4) 1st issue: Notice that in the headset, SteamVR shows that it's waiting for the application (Firefox in this case) to respond. This should not normally happen, i.e. when Firefox has no content to present, it should present a default 3D scene, for example: a dome with a firefox logo in the middle. Also, if you click on the System Button on the VR controller, the SteamVR Dashboard pops up BUT it does not offer the option to disengage/disconnect Firefox from SteamVR. That keeps SteamVR locked into Firefox. If you wait long enough, you get the ERRORS shown in the attached images.

5) Open another 3D model and click on the VR button. The new model should appear in the VR headset.

6) 2st issue: The VR controller is not longer tracked by Firefox.

I hope you find the above useful and easy to replicate. If you need additional information, please do let me know.

Kind regards

1. Fresh FF install on freshly installed Xubuntu 19.04 in Vbox. 2. FF started ok. Open different tabs, certain sites at different stages crashes with 'Gah. Your tab just crashed' message: (just a few examples of sites below)

2b. http://www.ctrip.com/ - Started to load, but when it is almost fully completed, it crashed.

2c. mail.yahoo.com - After keying in user name, the next page for password crashes.

3. Steps tried: Had googled left right center but nothing of help. Some articles that seem close, tried but failed: 3a. disable multi-process tabs doesn't help :

          browser.tabs.remote.autostart = false 
          browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2 = false  (can't find this part though, only the above line)

3b. Disable hardware acceleration - doesn't help.

3c. There is no extension nor theme added, it's a newly installed FF and OS.

4. What works: safe mode. All the sites listed above are able to load in safe mode.

5. There is no crash report? Is it because it is a tab crash rather than a full crash?


Please help ...

I'm getting a PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR when trying to visit a site I've gone to scads of times and strongly believe to be valid today.

Is there any sort of workaround that would allow me to get to this site?

(And, BTW, why does Firefox absurdly tell me to inform the web site about this error when the error prevents me from getting to the web site?)
