Hey all, The Developer version of Opera now includes a free and unlimited built-in VPN. I have clung to Firefox for years because of its features and open-source nature but Opera is now making a very good case to switch as a VPN seems a very important addition to a browser. Are there any knows plans for Firefox to develop a similar feature in the coming releases? So far, no add-on has really convinced me of its reliability in this matter. Best, Lou

Our web site, writen in ASP.Net, uses various pop up windows to prompt the user for specific actions. These work FINE in all browsers for all customers across the world, except this new Firefox 47 upgrade.

Customers starting calling today because they can't use our application with Firefox. We tested with Firefox 43 and 44 and both versions worked fine, but once we updated to Firefox 47, the application no longer functioned.

I will post a note to our customer users telling them to avoid using Firefox 47 until this is resolved.

A deceptive site on yahoo home page offered details on a Bermuda Triangle mystery. Site redirected to a false Firefox update page. Update downloaded twice with out my consent. Stopped download from installing twice. Removed shortcut from desktop , but can't uninstall downloads for false Firefox update.

1. Firefox is no longer compatible because I can no longer run old windows programs that I was not using online. When I check compatibility it specifically tells me I cant run programs for older versions of windows. I use some of these programs because they were NOT designed to be tracked.

2. Firefox has gotten really slow and freezes a lot.

3. I have uninstalled all the precursors for windows 10 because I do not want all the cellphone features with all the extra trackers on my desktop and laptop. I do not want Cortana selling my personal information every where. Touch screens and I do not get along so I do not want all the touch screen code on my computer.

4. I use Ghostery to prevent tracking and screening as much as possible. I'd like a EULA busting add on that allows me to tell companies that I don't allow tracking and selling my information at anytime . If they wish to have me as a customer they must cease and desist.

I desperately need to find out how to stop the viral insistence when I try to log in to Facebook on Mozilla, ...insistence that this - my - machine is infected with malware and needs to be cleaned by whatever it is the little window offers. A small window comes up when I move to connect to Facebook on Mozilla-Firefox, saying this machine is infected with malware and needs the clean-up done by some business shown in that window. It's a virus. I can get FB on IE on this computer, and on my other computer, and when I ask for it on a Library machine. So, I can connect to it - just not when I use Moz-Fire. thanks.

edited phone# and email from spambots and public as there was no need and nobody on this forum would contact you this way.

Im building a new webpage with video background. The problem is that Firefox is the only browser that have problem with html5 autoplaying. If page was loaded atleast one time the video is working correclty, starts right after the page load automatically but.. if page is loaded for the first time in most cases the video in background doesn't start and show something like TV's snow.

Facts: - I don't think its code issue, atleast not 'video' tag (tried many configurations thinking it might ), - I'm also sure its not problem with video - tried few videos, - tried all formats - it happens with all of them: mp4, wemb, ogg, All at the same time and individually, - it's not problem with my PC - been trying on windows, mac and linux, - Its not plugin - i don't use any with FF.

Check it out here: http://strona5.nanit.webd.pl Just do it in private session and close window after every load so you'll see that its lottery.

Regards.

Today I clicked on a unknown exe file which I think gave me a virus. Since then I have done 3 virus scans on 2 different companies and they found nothing. I attempt to start firefox in safemode, but windows tries to find a solution and it exits out. The only way I am viewing this is because on the McAfee virus scan I can click a link to go into the browser without windows interfering. I have recently reinstalled Adobe. I have Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Flash Reader. If I need anything else to download please let me know. - Mike.

Dear Team,

We are in the process of locking down PCs for use in a Correction of Department facility. We have configured group policy so that users can not access apps and machine drives. It appears that everything is lock down with the exception when a user types C:\ in the address car of Firefox, the user can view the whole directory structure of the C drive.

I searched the internet but some of the proposed solutions are out dated and do not appear to work on the lasted versions of Firefox I also searched Mozilla Support and have not found a solution. Please advise!!

I've already changed my password, but knowing that emails come with some delay and all you need is just a few seconds to sync all your passwords id say its a pretty bad thing..

So every time I try to download a file and choose "open with" (instead of "save file"), the file opens and then Firefox crashes. It does this on any website, any file type. If I choose "Save File" instead, it downloads the file and there are no problems (it just adds the extra step of navigating to the folder where the file was downloaded to open it). I have completely uninstalled Firefox, deleted every trace of it from my PC (appdata, Program Files, registry, etc), and reinstalled. No change, still crashes every time I choose "Open with". This has been going on for at least a few months I think.

I'm attempting to download this file but it has an Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN https://files.vagrantup.com/precise32.box

There is no option to add an exception.

The steps I have tried to fix this are: 1) Disabled all plugins and addons 2) Pasted the URL, domain name (both the issuing website and the domain of the URL) in chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.xul (with and without clicking "Get Certificate") 3) Manually entered the above details into: Tools > Options > Advanced > Certificates > View Certificates > Servers > Add Exception (with and without clicking "Get Certificate") 4) Deleted the file cache 5) Disabled and then removed anti virus software and firewall 6) Emptied my hosts file 7) Renamed cert8.db 8) Created a new profile 9) Removed and reinstalled Firefox

I'm running FF 47.0

Please let me know if I should file a bug.

Just using Adblock Plus and Firefox internal adblock is not enough to block all popups from, errr, popping up. I tried changing "dom.popup_allowed_events default" to blank in about:config. That worked, no more popups but I could not upload any thing as it also blocked the file browsing popup -.- I want to ask if there's a way to block every popup apart from the file browsing popup.

My own website was hacked 4 years ago. And the hosting company eliminated the problem and it was fine afterwards. But for nearly 3 years, I left this website untouched, and now when I redesigned the website and uploaded, I notice that Firefox browser doesn't show pictures on my webpages. When I right click on the small empty thumbnails, and view image, it warns me of 'malware warning'. I can ignore the warning and view my pages..... but others wouldn't ignore the message.

I have no problem with other browsers such as internet explorer or google chrome. Only firefox is giving false malware warning. I can't believe firefox is not updating my website status after the malware problem was resolved nearly 4 years ago.

I'm desperately in need of launching my website soon. My website is an educational one, and I don't want my viewers think that this site is compromised.

Please someone kindly tell me what I can do to get the status of my site restored? Thank you very much in advance!!
