I occasionally visited this site https://referti-empoli.uslcentro.toscana.it/portalepaziente_user/user-login (it's a site managed by the local health authorities). I am reported that a safe connection cannot be established with the message PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. I am not shown any option to consider this site SAFE (no matter what, it's SAFE and I need to access it occasionally). I also use ESET anti-virus software. I can access through other browser, at least the show me it couldn't be safe but allow me to go on. I don't want to switch browser once in a while to navigate. I want to use Firefox in any case (or switch to another one that allows me to). How can I make it work (apart from deleting cache, temp files and history, which did not work)? Thank you.

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

in about:config page the options: browser.tabs.warnOnClose (true - default) browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs (true - default) browser.sessionstore.warnOnQuit (false - default) browser.warnOnQuit true (true - default)

But when i do Ctrl+q accidentally, it closes the only Firefox window i have. This window has many tabs open. Yes it restore next time, but i want FF to ask me before closing it.

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

Hi, other than the default search engines, I tried adding some more to Firefox in the options. The method I did this was, say I need to add Yandex search engine, I went to yandex.com https://yandex.com and clicked the three dots and the address bar and selected "add search engine" but when i go to options>search, the engines i added are in the drop down list (1), but not in the grid table (2)where you can add a keyword or remove the engine.

Is there a way to fix this?

Hi,

I've got 12 pinned tabs that load at Firefox start and need them to be pinned. Problem is Firefox loads only 3 tabs simultaneously, from left to right. Consequence it takes ages to load all of them and especially the last ones.

I tried to find an about:config setting to mod this behavior, unsuccessfully.

Settings I've already changed (x2): browser.tabs.remote.warmup.maxTabs 6 network.http.max-connections 2000 network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy 34 network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server 12 network.http.max-urgent-start-excessive-connections-per-host 6

Please could you point me to the correct setting ? Thanks a lot.

Netflix, Charles Schwab, others appear to not recognize my device and require two step authentication, every time, but saying now my device is registered and I won't need to do that again. But I do. What do I need to change so that their marker remains without losing all my privacy? Is it a cookie? Do I have to change the Dashboard to no security? Can I do that for just one website at a time?

FireFox just updated onto my older Mac computer running OS 10.10.5 to version 78.7.1esr. I now cannot login to at least one of my banking and medicare accounts, but can log into other accounts I have. For the banking account I get this message: "Please try using another internet browser. If you still receive this message, please call the Customer Care Center at 1-800-XXX-XXXX and reference code: 18.67472317.1612970980". For Medicare I get: 'Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://account.mymedicare.gov/?" on this server. Reference #18.47f86668.1612971914.68502162'. Using Safari I can login to these accounts just fine. Turning off all extensions does not remedy the problem.

I have a another Mac, running OS 10.12.6 and Firefox 82.0.3 and I don't have problems logging into these accounts.

Whenever I check someone's profile page it says so&so hasn't tweeted yet - sometimes repeatedly refreshing works but most of the time it doesn't. Media tweets will display correctly as will the persons likes. This happens when firefox starts in safe mode & when tracking protection is turned off. This is every account I check apart from my own & my timeline loads fine. The profiles show correctly in chrome & edge so this must be a firefox problem. I have the latest version & have cleared cache & cookies. Is anyone else experiencing the same?

I've been struggling today with accessing two systems on my work laptop. As I'm an administrator on both sites, I've been purposely using "private mode" browser sessions in Firefox (my default and fav) but I was surprised to see that the private mode appears to be "save" some of the session data from those systems - at least temporarily until I close all of those windows entirely?

I log in to one of those corporate sites with a username + password, then attempt to login to the other one in a separate tab, but it immediately attempts to auto-login me in with the credentials from the first site (which doesn't work as both sites require a different username/password for security reasons). I tried several combinations: I used separate private browser windows (instead of tabs) and the same thing happens. It's like it shares data across the instances? I also tried the reverse - logging into the 2nd system first on a fresh instance, then login to the first, and the same thing happens with a similar "invalid login" error.

Maybe its something weird about the auth on our network, like SSO? ...

I have noticed similar though where I've had other, multiple private browser sessions open on my personal laptop and even though I've closed one of them, activity from the site I closed has continued to happen in the background because the other private windows remained open ...

I have cleared all of my history multiple times, and still, when I search something on my Address bar, earlier sites show up. This is especially annoying, as I had cleared my whole history a while ago, so it doesn't take up as much space. Earlier, when I wanted to go on Google (My default search engine is Duck Duck Go, but sometimes i need Google because Duck Duck Go doesn't show what I want), I'd just have to type "g" and press enter. Now when I press "g", it shows "gamingjs.com". How can I get rid of this Website?

Also, even if I type "google", the first suggestion is still "google - Search with DuckDuckGo".

I can't provide a screenshot, as the address bar collapses automatically when I make a screenshot.

base64 images always look like this when I load them up in a website. In 80% of cases, for the first 0.2 seconds the image displays fine, then disappears. The image loads fine on Safari, so this is definitely an issue with Firefox.

I had a look at the links representing one of the base64 images I encountered in both Safari and Firefox. What I found was that while the first 39 characters of the image links after the "data:image/png;base64" headers were the same, after that the two links were completely different. Another thing I noted was that the Safari image link had 4701 characters after "data:image/png;base64" while the Firefox image link only had 739, meaning that somewhere between 80% and 99% of data (depending on how you look at it) was "lost"by Firefox.

I tried disabling hardware acceleration, using Private Windows (effectively same as clearing cookies), and disabling all my extensions. None worked.
