Firefox stopped loading facebook a few weeks back and I've been using Edge for FB. Today Firefox gives "SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE" for a large number of sites, including gmail and all the google sites, while still working for other sites like BBC News. I get the impression that Firefox is being somehow "targeted"... I've used it for years, going back to its predecessors in the 90s and have resisted changing browser so far!

Oy Gewald! I made a mistake. I thought that I could download Mozilla Firefox in German, and also keep my original Firefox in English. Big Mistake. Now everything is in German on my Firefox site. How can I convert it back to English? I can read and speak German, but it is a second language for me...I prefer to do my personal business in English! Help!

Hello everybody, first of all sorry if there are mistakes in my english or missuse of informatic terms, I am not a native speaker.

I did a complete restoration of my computer (installing again windows after formating the hard drive). I installed again firefox and connected it to my firefox account. I was expecting for firefox to synchronize itself and find again all my registered login passwords, tabs, ect..

Instead of this, even if the synchronisation seems to occur (turning symbol) nothing happens after that. I can not find neither my old tabs or my log in informations.

I hope you can understand my problem and can help me to solve it,

thanks in advance

Two monitors: Toolbar menus cut off

Hello!

I am using Firefox on my notebook with external monitor.

When the external monitor is set up as the main display and above the notebook monitor, the toolbar popup menus in Firefox are cut off on the notebook monitor (≡ & addons like uBlock etc.), so only a small upper part of them is displayed. The ≡ menu can be fully operated in this case because it has scroll bars, the addons' menus do not.

If the notebook monitor is set up as the primary monitor or is not below the external monitor, the problem does not occur.

Disabling all addons does not cause any change.

The problem does not occur with other browsers either.

Would appreciate some help!

I am continuing to have issues going to this web site. www.goldtonemusicgroup.com/goldtone. Works great on chrome but firefox fails miserably. The page needs to be downsized and when you click on a link it may open it but it may be behind it but I am never able to get to it. I think possibly the last update something must have messed up. I used to be able to load it but not anymore. I have to use another browser to work with this web site. Other web sites seem to be ok. Thanks for any info.

In the age of COVID and a switch to more remote work the dependency on online meetings has increased. The company I work for uses Google Apps for Business and has been using Google Meet for a long time, and I've never had any problems with it not working. Recently though, when I join a meeting using Firefox, nobody can hear me and it appears Firefox is not able to access my microphone. Here's what I've done to test:

1. Reviewed Windows 10 settings to make sure microphone input slider is up. 2. Checked other browsers, running Google Meet using Chrome works fine. (Note: everything was working before and I attempted to use Chrome to try out changing backgrounds. It seems like this is when my problems with Firefox began) 3. I've tested my microphone using https://www.onlinemictest.com/ initially it didn't appear to work, but if I tap on my laptop screen near the microphone I see lines showing activity, but it won't pick up voice. Using this same tool in Chrome works as expected. 4. I tested using Private Mode - Same results. 5. I tried clearing the startup cache - same results. 6. I tried using Safe Mode - same results. 7. Refreshed Firefox (using Troubleshooting Information screen (Refresh Firefox...)

I'm at the end of my rope trying to figure out what's going on, and why it only appears to be Firefox that's having a problem. Other apps like Zoom, and recording video using just the webcam on the computer also works fine.

Any help in getting this figured out would be appreciated. I try not to use Chrome if I don't have to, but switching to Chrome so I can join web meetings is a real pain.

I use multiple Firefox profiles. Normally, Profile Manager always appears at launch.

But lately, if I launch Firefox while a profile is already open, it just opens a new window in the current profile. The only way I can get Profile Manager is by typing firefox.exe --profilemanager.

For the record, I don't have this option enabled: Use the selected profile without asking at startup.

I use Firefox as my business email and all was working fine until I upgraded Firefox using my Safari browser and created another login profile based on my personal email. That's when the error 'a copy is already open' began. To solve it, I did the above and had two profiles a 'default' and a 'default-release'. I believe I deleted the 'default', and the problem remained. Then I tried a reinstall, and I suppose that's the 'default-release-1' profile, but I really have no idea. The problem for me is that I need to import bookmarks, the business email account linked to Firefox and Host Gator, and all my LinkedIn, MailerLite stuff. I do not want to lose all this and just do a clean reinstall. However, now because I can't open any version of Firefox, I have no way to access the business emails, etc, so I can't recover the Firefox account linked to this business email and get all this stuff back. And I don't know which of the above three profiles I need to delete to get it all working again. Please help!!!

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) in Ubuntu 18.04

I often load pages with many tabs. These tabs are NOT refreshed when loading, so data may be days old. It's easy to think data is fresh, since Firefox just started, but WRONG !

This wastes lots of time, both in errors and manually restarting each of many tabs.

I need to find how to set Firefox to NOT use old data when it starts. I don't need to refresh every few minutes or hours,, JUST when starting.

HOW do I accomplish this ?!?

Thanks!

Hello, I have a problem with the screen share pop up that appears when a website tries to access the screen. When I try to share the entire screen on Google Meet, as soon as I click Share screen > Full screen, the button grays out and nothing is shared. The pop up that allows you to select the screen to share never opens.

The only way to reset Meet's "Share screen" button is by exiting and joining the Google Meet room again. I've checked that meet.google.com's screen permission is set to "Always ask" and not "Blocked". How can I fix this problem?
