Greetings. I can't open most sites I usually visit (even google.com) via my Firefox 98.0a1. This happens since today. All error codes are SEC_ERROR_LIBRARY_FAILURE.

Tried to:

  • Disable DNS-over-HTTPS.
  • Disable HTTP/3.
  • Disable proxy (never had it enabled anyway).
  • Disable sending info to Firefox developers.
  • Change settings of DNS-over-HTTPS.
  • Restart the browser (after each action).

Nothing helps me... But I still can visit some websites, but most common resources are not working for me. Please help me because I can't use Microsoft Edge without getting mentally ill. :/

I have used wowway.net for my email service on Firefox for years. Recently I have become unable to login to my email account using wowway.net. When I click the "Email" button on the wowway.net homepage (https://wowway.net/?inc=27) from within Firefox, a new page opens entitled "Redirecting to Login" with the message "Please wait while we are logging you in." This page stays open indefinitely without connecting to "https://email.wowway.com/modern." The wowway technical support have been unable to help me solve the problem and suggested I use Microsoft Edge instead of Firefox. Microsoft Edge does work, but I much prefer to stay with Firefox if possible.

Can you help me?

I begin to use firefox developer edition alongside firefox regular version. I've read some article that say if these 2 difference version using 2 seperate different profile, but it seems they're not. For example, when I change the theme to light for firefox and dark for firefox devedition, they always syncing each other so it use the theme the last set regardless where is set.

My question, is firefox and firefox devedition really using 2 seperate different profile? Can I use different setup like themes, addons for only one version? Where I can read the official documentation?

Hello, I have my most used bookmarks in the "Bookmark Menu" folder. The other bookmarks are in folders located in the " Other Bookmarks" folder and I have 6 links in the "Bookmarks Toolbar".

When I need to backup I use Export Bookmarks to HTML and save on PC.

Problem is that when I use Import Bookmarks from HTML, all folders are empty including Bookmarks Toolbar. All the missing links are now added to the bottom in Bookmark Menu. I now have to cut and paste the links back into the empty folders.

Why are the links not going back to the same place when importing back.

Some weeks ago, I remember that opening certain documents after finding them in Firefox could be done by using it as a temporal file (or at least I deduce that because they were stored in a folder called temp somewhere in my computer's storage). I could do it with docx files, however it does not seem to be the case anymore. It just asks where to save it, which, although is fine, is not what I want. Given that it used to be different, I know it's possible to have it that way, so I'd like to ask: how do I customise Firefox so that I can open files as temporally stored instead of just downloading, as it used to be?

As an example, this is an document I'd like to open as a temporal file.

I hope I was clear, and thank in advance to the wonderful Mozilla community

Hi,

brief backstory: When I set up my new desktop, I copied over the nightly profile from my laptop. This however meant that Firefox Sync kept confusing my laptop and my desktop, only ever keeping the most recently synced state from either. This persisted even after I changed the devices names.

Searching on the internet, I found a suggestion to delete `services.sync.client.GUID` from about:config. I did that, and long story short, I cannot open any websites on my desktop anymore. It fails immediately with SEC_ERROR_LIBRARY_FAILURE.

This error persists even after

  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Reinstalling Firefox
  • Creating a new Firefox profile

whenever I log back into Sync. So I tried deleting and recreating my Firefox account to get rid of whatever corrupted data is presumably stuck in the sync data, but even then the error still occurs. It only disappears if I create a new profile and *never sign into sync*, but this is not a long term solution.

Does anyone have an idea how to identify and delete whatever setting is causing firefox to choke?

Hi

I use Firefox developer edition. During the latest update Mozilla removed my most loved feature that asked you what you wanted to do with a file before downloading it. I tried to fix this by going into the settings and changing it to always ask for every file type, but many file types are just missing and I am unable to get them to appear. I looked on my other computers and all file types are present there but not on my desktop for some reason. Is there any way to fix this or to get Firefox to ask before downloading again?

Thanks

(I added an img of what the settings look like)

If I try to drag and drop a new bookmark onto the bookmark icon (the star with the line under it), it USED to open up Bookmarks and I could place the new bookmark where ever. That no longer works.

I CAN drag/drop into a folder on the menu bar but not into bookmarks directly.

I've lost all bookmarks, logins and saved passwords, add ons and basically everything. I have made sure that all my data is synced and even tested it a couple of times after changing devices and every time it worked perfectly and restored my data. Now, I've just changed devices after a while with no internet, I go to sign in and I forgot my pass so I reset it and signed in successfully but nothing at all is restored not a single thing. I'm devastated, I hope there a solution to this.

Ja, Firefox Updates ärgern mich. Ich benutze seit vielen Jahren Firefox. Angefangen habe ich mit Version 4 oder 5, damals wurde noch mit Anpassbarkeit geworben. Anfangs war es noch möglich, durch einen Mausklick zu bestimmen, ob die Tabs oben oder unten sind, dann kam eine neue Firefox Version. Ich habe mir eine UserChrome.css gemacht, die gut funktioniert hat, dann kam Firefox 57? und die Anpassbarkeit war Geschichte. Wer mit mehreren Tabs arbeitet und dafür sind die Tabs doch da, muss die Maus mehr bewegen und es ist unübersichtlich. Wäre es nicht sinnvoll, dass was ich am häufigsten benutze, in der Nähe der Arbeitsfläche zu haben? Wäre es nicht besser die Tab Leiste standardmäßig nach unten zu legen und wer es anders möchte, der kann sich alle 10 oder 15 Versionen, eine UserChrome.css basteln.
