For Windows version 10.0.19045 Build 19045 If using Firefox Version 113.0.1 (64-bit) in Windows 10 and in the following state:

 Firefox is open and window is maximized.
 Firefox Full Screen is toggled OFF.
 Windows taskbar setting "Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode" is toggled ON.

Then the Windows taskbar will not display when the cursor is place at the bottom of the monitor screen. If the Windows taskbar setting "Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode" is toggled OFF. Then the Windows taskbar will also not display. Changing the ON/OFF state of any other Windows taskbar display setting in any combination does not fix the failure.

I have been using (VIEWING articles in // saving articles TO my) FIREFOX "POCKET" for more than a year.

I have the pocket ICON on my upper toolbar. But ALL that seems to do is allow me to ADD an open page TO Pocket. I have NO clue how to simply **Go t o POCKET** and VIEW any / all my saved items there.

Good God, WHAT is the secret handshake??! ...in trying to figure this out I see numerous things telling me to SIGN IN to pocket ... IF way back when I began using pocket I MADE a USER NAME / Password for it, that info is long forgotten. I HAVE a FIREFOX account ... was sent therewhile supposedly (according to Firefox" HELP") to 'sign in' to my POCKET account. Only took me to an overall FIREFOX account page - wherein NO LONK there referred AT ALL to POCKET.

I 'SAVE' to my pocket (ICON) almost daily. NEVER need any kind of sign in for this. NOW I want to LOOK AT / READ some of these - BUT FIND NOWAY TO GET THERE. ICON omly SAVES a page.

Ridiculous. HOW do I VIEW / SEE / FIND /READ my saved pocket items?

I keep getting a prompt to update the latest Firefox update on my windows laptop. I actually did it and lost everything I needed, like bookmarks and asked for help and the instructions were so difficult I gave up. I don't know how it happened maybe I shut down and opened it again but I opened another tab and my old 'stuff' was all there so I closed the tab with the new update. What I'm saying is one tab had my old way and the other tab had the 'new' terrible way. Now I can't stop the prompting to update Firefox with the latest. I don't want the latest update if I'm going to run into the same problem so who can I talk to about this? Don't send me a link to do this and this and that. Not everybody knows how to do all that or even understand it!

After updating to FF 114, I noticed that my history and cookies were no longer being cleared according to my settings. Also, a particular page is now being opened as a pinned tab.

I reverted to FF 113, hoping that this would be fixed in 115. Today I tried 115.0.3, and history is still not being cleared. I have again reverted to FF 113.

I am on Windows 10. My history settings are to use Custom settings and clear history when Firefox closes. Cookie settings are to delete cookies and site data when FF closes.

Is there any intention to fix, or is this some new behavior that I am stuck with? Also, is there a way to clear the pinned tab behavior?

Thanks.

I am on a Apple Silicon MacMini M1 ARM running the latest Mac OS of Ventura. why does Firefox think I am on an Intel machine under Mac OSx 10.15 when I am on Mac OS Ventura? I assume that Mozilla does not have a ARM version or is this a configuration issue? Or is there a different issue at play here?

Was working yesterday. I didn't change anything. Calendar loads but can't open or create items. Mail loads, but cannot open or delete emails. Looks like it will open email, but doesn't. Tried restarting computer, clearing site data and checking version of Firefox. Erroneously states updates disabled by site administrator. This is in Linux. Linux says current version of Firefox.

I have downloaded Firefox 113.0.1 for Windows x64 but the file seems to be corrupt. When I check the installation file with 7Zip Test Archive appeared a Warning Message due to a Checksum error. All others versions of Firefox downloaded can be checked correctly by 7Zip, but this installation file show an error message that I never have received. Is there a problem with the file? Thanks

Firefox/mozilla spends so much time jerking each other after new updates, THEY FORGET that more than half are stuck with a crappy update and NOBODY AVAILABLE TO HELP.

 I suggest you provide a link for REAL help.  Stop hiding like cowards and help the people your updates end up screwing up.
  OR MAYBE you can actually create an update that WORKS.

Your latest update destroyed everything and nothing works. So how about you dummys be available to actually help your customers.

  Do you think an update that takes users DAYS TO FIX  is an update you can be proud of???!!!

An update should NOT cause users to spend hours looking for a solution your damned update has caused.

 E-mail---[email removed]@yahoo.com
  Help me with solutions and stop hiding.

Ever since the most recent update to Firefox I consistently get the following message when attempting to login to https sites which I have been connecting to for years: Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.att.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

Error code:PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

Clearly the problem is with Firefox and not with the website owner since it occurs with all websites.

I found over 100 instances of PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR but the few responses I looked at were back in 2021 or 2022. One solution suggested clearing the cache which I did and I was then able to connect. But now that does not help. Is my only reliable solution to delete Firefox and use some inferior browser?
