I've unfortunately encountered this error over the course of two days randomly. The website will work for an hour, and then I'll get this error, so on and so forth. Microsoft Edge has the same issue, my phone's browsers have the same issue (DuckDuckGo, Chrome), but from all of my research, the website is fine. My roommate's phone connects to the site just fine.

I've read a lot of conflicting information on what to do about this error, and clearly waiting it out doesn't seem right since it appears to be entirely on my end. Restarting doesn't help, reinstalling Mozilla doesn't help, I'm out of ideas.

The website is responds to pings and appears to be online on other devices (just not my own), other websites work fine, so I'm completely lost.

Any information on what to do next, let me know.

Apple logins universally do not work in Firefox. I am stuck with a spinning wheel.

This problem is persistent across Windows 10 desktop and multiple Linux distributions (Kubuntu, POP OS, Debian).

I have tried the following:

  • Clear cache
  • Clear history
  • Enable exception
  • Run in safe mode
  • Disable all addons

None of these items work.

Google reports these Mozilla instructions: "To generate a new password

   Click on the password field.
   Right-clickHold down the control key while you click on the password field to open the Context Menu.
   Select Use Generated Password…
   Firefox will generate a password. ...
   Firefox will save the password for this website in Lockwise."

They do NOT work. Both Right-click+Control key while you click on the password field, and Right-click on Password field, to open the Context Menu, does NOT give an option called "Use Generated Password". See attached, duplicate screen shots. Thanks. Mr. Auto-Password.

Yes, i recall the last time i was asking for help with this issue i was told to post it as a bug somewhere. I went to "Feedback" thinking that was logical, but apparently Mozilla is reworking Feedback so that does not exist, and as i am not a software developer, i suspect a technical bug report is over my head anyway.

I don't want to go to Edge, but it would seem Mozilla wants me to. This issue has persisted ever since release 79. I would think that the programmer(s) could "simply" look at what changed from 78 to 79 and revert, but apparently not.

I, once again, have to uninstall the latest release (i installed it, allowing an "upgrade", thinking that by now someone there would have fixed that which at least to me is a critical routine), and reinstall Version 78.0, since that one isn't f'd up. Maybe it is all the enhanced "security" that is now interfering with normal processes, i don't know. That also means I have to get used to the new browser and hopefully finding a reliable password manager to which i can import pages of entries from Kee.

Yes, i know i will get a share of hate mail for criticizing FF at this point. Just consider how infuriating it is after using it since beta 0.3 and having made donations, having what i see as a critical issue ignored, and worse, forcing me to soon change to Edge if no one fixes it. As much as i hate using the Microsoft browser, at least it does not force the Microsoft "Save" dialog box to collapse when trying to print to a pdf, and i am rather disgusted that no one from FF has reached out to try to fix this issue.

And yes, i did try it in safe mode (run firefox.exe /safe) and "Restart with Addons disabled" from the menu|Help, neither of which were successful.

If any of you know how to get this note to someone competent at FF, please do so and let me know to hold off on switching; i dread having to do that, but printing to pdf is mission critical in the conduct of my business.

Firefox, upon opening with a link passed as a parameter (clicking a link in some other application which opens up the default browser to that URL), freezes completely and prevents me from manually opening a new instance, saying that another Firefox instance is already running. Opening a system monitor shows a running Firefox process, pointing to the previously clicked URL, but does not respond at all. CPU and RAM usage are both 0 for this process, so it's likely not even doing anything. Not even a SIGTERM will terminate the process, I have to throw at least two SIGKILLs at the process for it to die. Why is this a thing? I've been using this browser on this exact same system for almost a year now, this was never a problem before.

Everytime I put anything in the Google search box in the middle of the screen I get "Secure Connection Failed Error Message." It doesn't matter what site i search for. I even tried to search "CNN" and it still gave me "Secure connection Error". But if I put "CNN" in the web browser then I get connected with no problem.

I've always used Firefox's "set as desktop background" to change my desktop picture on Linux Mint. Recently (after update to Mint 20?), it hasn't been working. I'm not sure it was when I updated to Mint 20, it may also have quit working after I used Pix to set the desktop background?

When I select "set as desktop background" in Firefox, nothing happens. There is no error message. I can still change the background using Pix, but that requires saving the picture from Firefox, opening it in Pix, and then setting it to the desktop. It would be nice if I could do it directly from FF again.

I get an error message every time I try to download exe files from the internet such as GIMP, Gamejolt Client and Steam. The message is as follows: C:\Users\ "insert my username here" \AppData\Local\Temp\7Tjm+hdo.exe.part could not be saved because the source file could not be read. I have tried clearing cache, refreshing, disabling all my extensions, removing temporary files, opening in admin mode, uninstalling and reinstalling, and reinstalling as admin. It's been working until I turned it on today. Nothing I'm doing is working. Please help me. I don't want to switch to Chrome or Opera.
