I have Firefox 63.0.1 64 bit using Win 7. After the latest update, I frequently get the "performing a tls handshake" when trying to view a webpage. After 7 to 8 minutes I get a message saying "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 researched this problem and haven't come up up with an answer as to how to correct this. Does anyone know how to correct this?

I want to use my web cam on a certain website. I click on the little information button in the browser window and get sent to Permissions. I click the drop down for camera and get to the "Settings - Camera Permissions" page, where I cannot specify the website to grant permission for the cam to work on the site. I tried to upload a screen shot of that page, but it was unable to upload.

Dell XPS 13 Developer Ubuntu 18.04.1 Firefox Quantum 63.0.3

installed flashplugin-installer from repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) multiverse"

confirmed flashplugin-alternative.so is in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and is a link to /etc/alternatives/mozilla-flashplugin which is a link to /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so

There is nothing in ~/.mozilla/plugins

Flash does not show up in about:plugins and

https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html

says flash is not installed (so it can't be enabled).


I also tried adobe-flashplugin from repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"

and it did not work either.

I need Flash. Can you help?

Firefox update 63.0.1 is "super" slow. Nothing in the fix suggestions works.

This has been an ongoing problem that started, first with update 63.0, and continues with update 63.0.1.

I have tried multiple fix suggestions, including the very disappointing "refresh Firefox" option. While that did nothing to cure the problem, it did wipe out every saved password. That, to be blunt, really ticked me off. It says this fix solution will keep our saved information, with no mention of erasing passwords.

Second, I changed the Network Settings as directed, from Use system proxy settings to auto-detect proxy settings for this network. I have been cautioned NOT to use the no proxy option, because it has a chance of rendering some websites unavailable. Not interested in messing up my browsing experience any worse than these recent Firefox updates have accomplished by themselves.

All these problems aside, my biggest disappointment is in the total lack of communication from Mozilla. While I value the Firefox ideology and the mission to provide a more private internet browsing experience, all this is worthless to me if my pages load at something akin to dial-up speeds.

At this juncture I have no choice but to use Google Chrome until someone can provide me with a workable solution, a solution that doesn't send me back to square one with all my saved Firefox information. If that is the only remedy, I might as well switch my default browser now and begin to re-acclimate myself to the changes.

Thanks.

This problem is driving me crazy! It was working until few days ago.

I can't watch any videos from this website/domain: http://redeglobo.globo.com/videos/ Things I've tried: - private browsing - safe mode - new profile/refresh - portable version - uninstall/reinstall - older versions - uninstalled kaspersky/windows defender is disabled - HOSTS file is clean(Windows 7 x64)

The thing is, the ads load but not the video content. If the ad is long, an error message appears while the audio is still playing in the background. Another computer in the same network plays them fine. All other browsers can play these videos, this problem only happens in Firefox. I've tested a virtual machine in this same computer and then it works. Is there anything else I can do to try to fix this?

Firefox console shows these errors: Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://vodstreaming02a.video.globo.com/r90_720/v7/e8/93/1e/7164945_1e25dd21ab308227e9961ad4c2a44399a4dc60ff/7164945-manifest.ism/7164945-manifest-audio_por_1=128025-video_por=1967000.m3u8?hls_client_manifest_version=4.

Hello!

So, I was working on a new blog on which I'm using the Rubik font from Google fonts.

Everything was fine for several days, but today, after working for some time on it, the font just got messed up randomly (see attached image).

I added the font on a different, testing site and it shows messed up there as well, so it's not something website related.

Now, the shocking part is that it gets messed up only on Mozilla and only on the Mozilla browser that's on my Desktop PC.

I asked a friend to check it out and I also checked it out on my laptop, and the font is fine on other Mozilla browsers, as well as other browsers.

Other fonts from other websites are fine as well.

What troubleshooting I performed:

- Checked the font with Inspect Element, as it's shown here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Page_Inspector/How_to/Edit_fonts and the font is set up correctly;

- Deleted the whole history since the beginning of time (cookies, cache, everything);

- Closed and opened Firefox again;

- Opened Mozilla in Safe Mode (hardware acceleration is disabled by default in safe mode);

- Restarted my PC;

- Uninstalled Mozilla as it shows here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer. Deleted the profile folder and everything.

- Installed a fresh copy again with no add-ons, no nothing.

Nothing worked. That font is still messed up on Mozilla, on this PC.

It doesn't make any sense, especially since it went nuts randomly without a particular reason.

Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem and how to fix it?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Simple question: How do I turn off autocomplete in the search bar?

Autocomplete is the function which inputs text I did not type into the text box. Autocomplete is not the dropdown beneath the search bar, that is automatic suggestions. Autocomplete is not the feature that fills out forms, that is autofill. Autocomplete has nothing to do with storing browsing history or any other information. It is not a security feature, it is a usability feature. I do not want to turn off automatic suggestions, autofill, cookies, history tracking, or any other information storage or usability functions. I only want to turn off autocomplete. Please tell me how to turn off autocomplete, and only autocomplete. I shouldn't have to go into detail like this but I know from past experience that it can take literally weeks to wade through the endless mis-directions to finally get to an answer that actually addresses autocomplete. So do not respond by telling me anything about shutting off any other features, or I will report your post for spam.

I quit Google Chrome and switched to Mozilla Firefox because Google employees informed me that it is Google's stated intent that not only will there not be any option to turn off autocomplete in their browser, but that they outright wish to suppress any and all attempts to circumvent the feature, as they--and they have told me this directly--wish to force the feature on their users. I hope I will not receive the same attitude from Mozilla on this subject. Autocomplete is not just a minor feature, it is a major problem for my browsing and it is imperative that I have a way to turn it off. Not having a way to turn it off is a deal-breaker for me. I will quit Firefox and find another browser if I cannot turn off autocomplete.

I have u block origin already.

I had media autoplay set to false. Now yahoo.com news autoplays vids (again). The autoplay literally started on October 24, 2018. 1- what happened to allow autoplay on yahoo when it was successfully blocked all this time? 2- what can I do to stop video autoplay? Idiot level instructions please- set one go here type instructions. I already went the "add on" route. Flash blockers didn't work at all. All other "vid blockers" are for youtube and will not work on yahoo news as I tried hoping one would work.

Maybe I am stupid, but exactly WHAT settings are needed to stop autoplay on yahoo.com that are in ublock origin or in firefox about: config settings (media.autoplay =false), which doesn't seem to have any effect anymore. Is something else in about:config needed?

Site example where annoy vid autoplay now exists: https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/dont-want-attention-mother-6-year-old-boy-whose-birthday-party-guests-no-shows-speaks-185110033.html

So this happened today: - Firefox did an update while I was playing. - Suddenly I noticed the icon became a blank page and when I clicked it Windows informed me, that firefox isn't on my PC. (Uninstalled itself for some reason?) - Since then Firefox won't ask if I want to save my tabs so I have to manually restore previous session every time. ShowQuitwarning is set ot be enabled. I tried deleting/renaming sessionstore.js and prefs.js - When I restored ShowQuitwarning it says it isn't a boolean, but a string variable. I assume something got corrupted, by have no idea what and how to restore besides a full reinstall? (In the meantime the option seems to have vanished fully, it is not present in about:config)
