I would like to always open a cached offline version of a bookmarked page that I open in Firefox.

Rationale:

Viewing an offline copy of my favourite (bookmarked) websites is sufficient for me and makes it needless to fetch it again from the server, thus conserving energy.

I've tried everything here, gone to the "about:config" page, "YouTube HTML5" page, changed the settings reverted Firefox to its stock form, updated my computer drivers, make sure that Firefox is up to date, and yes, looked online for a solution. Firefox will still not play videos on YouTube in 60fps. When I tired the whole, "about:config" fix the first time it worked but after that one occurrence it stopped playing at 60fps. I looked at Edge and at Chrome and both play at that frame rate with ease, I'd hate to jump ship but if a browser as established as Firefox can't do something as simple as that, I may very well have to.

My college set up their own link to Pearson's Math Lab, where I can access the course and complete assignments. I have other classes that use Pearson's labs and I have no problem accessing any of them-or any other website-, EXCEPT for the math lab. I can access it on my phone when I'm not connected to my wifi, but its hard to do any work on such a smaller screen. I keep getting the same error message when I try to go to the page to log in. I've tried other browsers, clearing cookies and history, reinstalling Firefox, restarting my router for the wifi, and nothing has worked. I have the current version of Windows 10 and Firefox.

The website I'm trying to go to is https://centralaz-mlpui.openclass.com/

The error message is : Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   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.

I've been trying to fix this since this morning, so any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated!

When I fill in my user name and password in Firefox and click sign in nothing happens. The Email line seems to still be in the background when I fill in my email address and the same is true with the password line. Also the Sign in button is dimmed.

I can log in using Chrome.

Hi,

I'm not able to access https://pixabay.com/ as I get the message above (question bar) showing. Having checked out Q&A I tried deleting the cert8.db file then re-starting Mozilla, no joy. I am a bit reluctant to do a refresh as I'm unsure how it would affect my system? I am not that computer literate! I did do an SSL check & both their server & info bar url came back as A+.

Around the same time I now also can't access https://personofinterestdiscussion.com/ I did an SSL check & that came up with vulnerabiities. (I made a note of some if needed.) Their overall safety rating is F - grade capped to C . I haven't made any changes to my laptop lately (Windows 7) & haven't had problems accessing either site until a couple of days ago & I just don't know what to do to get back onto both. I have anti virus, anti spyware, anti malware etc installed with no problems, also Mozilla's website protection. I scan my laptop daily. This has came on so suddenly & I really want to get back onto both sites, so any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks!  :)

I have latest Firefox version. Since this was installed downloads do not save to designated folder as they used to. I have not installed anything new on my computer. The only thing that changed is the new Firefox version. They now save to a %temp% folder. This is annoying because I then have to find and re-save it to download folder. I have changed the designated folder in Firefox options a couple of times and it does save the changes in Firefox options but it does not change where the file is saved. If there is a list of incompatible programs that may be running it would be good to know what they are. Using Win10, with Windows Defender on Lenovo Thinkpad Ultrabook.

I have got Cameras installing at my work place. Earlier I have got no problem with downloading the plug-in and opening the site to see all the cameras. However yesterday I reinstall windows and firefox again. Now I try clicking on the link to download the plug-in but nothing happen at all. (As of the picture below, normally when I click on "Please click here to download and install the plug-in. Close the browser when installing the plug-in." the plug-in should be downloaded)

https://postimg.org/image/pf989urhv/

However nothing happen now.

I try using other browser to download and install then in "Plugin", I choose "install add on from file", it said "This addon cannot be install because it appear to be corrupt" Below is the picture of the addon I downloaded (I try twice)

https://postimg.org/image/52oo56wqr/

What must I do? PS. I try using "add images" below but it kept loading non stop for over 15 minutes already, so I try posting image in image hosting instead.

I have uninstalled FF ver. 62 - it was working, but I can't deal with Quantum's memory use. Tried installing ver. 35, 46, and 49 64-bit (uninstalled each one before installing the next), but none will allow me to add a bookmark to the toolbar. When I try to drag a site to the bookmark toolbar, a tiny triangle appears at the left edge of the toolbar and nothing happens. Also, when I choose "add bookmark" from the menu bar it displays the add bookmark dialog, I click Done but the bookmark doesn't show up under bookmarks, and the "Recently Bookmarked" item is grayed out.
