Hello and thank you for your time. I've looked all around for an answer to my question but found nothing related to my problem. I've also had assistance in the past with this problem and temporarily fixed the problem but not for long at all. When i try and go to a specific website that I've been to before and have seen the captcha box appear, there's nothing there or it says recaptcha status in black bold letters. Previously i got an recommendation to clear cache and cookies of the website, update java and turn the browser into safe mode and restart which temporarily worked until i closed the browser and then the problem persisted even after doing it all over again? Please help!?

I use StartSSL to generate free certificates for my personal sites. Occasionally firefox has a heart attack because it can't verify a signature or whatever. I really, really, really don't care, and I would like to disable all OCSP checking in my browser. I've tried toggling the option under Options->Advanced->Certificates for "Query OCSP responder servers to confirm the current validity of certificates" but that doesn't seem to make any difference. I know that my certificate is valid, as it was working just fine for the past week and is valid until 2019. It also works in every other browser on my computer, just not FF. How can I just completely stop OCSP from doing any checks, since that option doesn't fix the problem? Is there something in about:config I can toggle or set?

for search engine purposes, since I couldn't find a answer to this exact question using these search terms:

OCSP response has an invalid signature. Error code: SEC_ERROR_OCSP_BAD_SIGNATURE

When using the certificate import manager in Firefox it doesn't read the pfx files. If I choose 'all files' from the drop down menu of the import window then they appear, but when I select them they they won't appear in the import manager window. I've also installed the certificates with the Windows 10 process and they do appear in other browsers.

I have a website, now, it does not matter the website name really, but when I goto it, it redirects me to from http: to https:, this is a blank site with a blank index file, this ONLY happens on this one site and ONLY happens in firefox, chrome, IE, edge, etc, all work fine. I have cleared cache, history, everything, uninstalled firefox, resintalled it, etc, it is still redirecting me to HTTPS on this one domain, its a brand new domain I have setup on my hosting, this is obviously a bug with firefox, is there ANY way to stop it from doing this? (I even did the about:config and turned of the url stuff so thats not it) This is firefox 49.01

I downloaded Firefox 50 via the built in update. When I hit restart to install the update, I get a window saying that Firefox wants to install a "new helper tool" and that I need to enter an admin password to complete the update. I can't find anything about this "helper tool" in the release notes or through a google search. I was wondering just what is it? Running OSX 10.11.16. Thanks.

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 am having same issue like user there: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1139845 (only i have different OS)

When having multiple tabs open, Firefox never ask me for confirmation when i click Firefox window close button in the corner (usually accidentally). And i want confirmation.

in about:config i have:

browser.showQuitWarning true (this is marked as customized (bold) value, like default is false)

browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab true

and when i close Firefox (usually accidentally) i receive crash reporter window which i usually submit.


update: one member claims that close confirmation is never shown for single window Firefox, only multiple Firefox windows. I think this is bad idea s probably half people not using multiple windows, only multiple tabs.

Is there a way that I can save a group of open tabs at once to a new folder in bookmarks? If not, I'd like to request it as a feature.

The desired result would be an option in bookmarks to "save all open tabs to new folder". Then I would get a prompt to type in a name of the folder or cancel the request. Ideally, would also include a keyboard command such as CTRL + G (for "group").

Thanks all.

I used to be able to use chatstep with no problem. I am using Windows 10. Maybe 3 weeks ago or so suddenly, when I dropped an image into the chat, I got error code 713 image cannot be downloaded. I also cannot receive images from others. I used Windows Edge and I was able to download an image without an error. Therefore, it must be firefox. I also turned off my antivirus and firewall and nothing changed. I tried changing most settings on the page information and that also did not help.

Any ideas?

I thought the last version was locking up too much but now that I have the "updated" version, I long for the lockups I was having.

Now I can't even scroll down a page smoothly most of the time [or up the page] - I sometimes have to refresh the page just to get further down the screen. And often just WAIT for the browser to catch up to the last dozen keys that were hit -- if it actually catches up.

What is going on? Why are you turning Firefox into the patchy mess that Explorer devolved into? Firefox Update after update after update - within days of each other, and all that seems to be happening, is that there are an increasing amount of slow-downs, lockups, and crashes. If it gets degraded much more, then it will be more difficult and cumbersome to use than Explorer. It is actually really close to that point now.

Plugincontainer is getting more intrusive and resource hogging than ever before. It usually runs in the neighborhood of 50% of the CPU time --50%!!!!

These attached images show the scrolling issue -- and please note that unless I hit F5 [refresh], the display will remain like this - I hit print screen,, pasted that into a paint file and posted here - and that page is STILL like that!!

How do I revert to a working version of Firefox? Something is massively wrong with this one.

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.

When moving windows between my laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad P50) to my secondary monitor (Dell...can't find any model number on it but have had it a few years), Firefox goes black. If I move it back to my laptop window, it is restored. I'm running Windows10 and this is brand new laptop and I'm finding all sorts of graphics challenges using Windows10 in general (fonts too large, fonts too small, etc., with various programs) so I'm sure it is graphics related. Closing Firefox and reopening (on the secondary screen) fixes the problem.
