The other day a few programs got downloaded by accident so I went to Control (Windows 10) and deleted them. I recall at the time that it also added an add on or two in my Firefox Browser.

A couple of things are not working normally when I do a Google search with Firefox so I thought I should go back and delete the add ons that went into my Firefox which I didn't want.

But when I now go to tools and down to add ons all I get is a blank page.

I suspect the problem can be answer by deleting Firefox from my computer and downloading from the start but that will delete all the add ons that I have in the past put into Firefox and I cannot remember them all except Add Block, Webmail Ad Blocker and Adblock Plus.

Can someone please advise me but remember I am old and not at all computer savvy so any help will have to be in very basic description or guide.

Please ???????

I am trying to browse websites through a proxy that intercepts the TLS connections and signs the certificates using a private CA certificate.

If I'm using only a root CA certificate, setting it on my proxy as well as in the OS's certificates store, I can browse the internet without any issues. The chains in this case would be: Root CA -> Server Certificates

However, my setup mandates that I use an intermediate CA on the proxy. The chains in this case would be: Root CA -> Intermediate CA -> Server Certificates If I add an intermediate CA to the proxy and the root CA to my OS's certificates store, I get the following error:

" Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.youtube.com. Peer’s certificate has an invalid signature. Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE

   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'm using Firefox 82.0.2 on Windows 10.

How can I get more details on why it's failing? I've tried looking in the "Security" tools tab, but I see only this error ID.

Thank you, Cosmin

The problem: Some videos on YouTube gives me the "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available." "Click here to visit our frequently asked questions about HTML5 video." It's only a few of the newer videos on YouTube that is giving me this problem, it's not base on the uploader as i can watch some of their other newly uploaded videos. Furthermore at the same time this started to be a problem i also noticed another one, the side bare on the left would often not load.

I believe this problem started for me after the latest update i did to windows 10.

I am running 82.0.2 (64-bit) version of Firefox. i have tried most of the things listed in other post without success, disabling all extensions, running in safemode, resetting Firefox and reinstalling Firefox

I require assistance. I have a game called Roblox that I played every day. It would start as usual and I would play with my friends and all. But suddenly, it started saying "An error occurred while starting roblox". I tried opening Roblox on Firefox but it said "Warning: Security Risk ahead", I even tried advancing, and it still wouldn't let me in. I tried restarting my computer, restarting Roblox, my internet, and deleting and reopening Roblox, but nothing worked. I emailed my teacher and he hasn't responded yet, and I'm kind of desperate. so please help. I noted that this happened earlier, so I am wondering if this is temporary or if i accidentally installed a virus or something. Please respond as soon as possible! ( I tried Roblox.com, but it said it was blocked because of filtering, even though there is nothing inappropriate on it ).

What happened to the Download Icon Arrow for the FF Toolbar? It is missing from my toolbar and not available in Customize. I have a blank space where the where the icon used to be. I can click on that space and the downloads will show, but the icon is not there. If I go to Customize to drag it to the toolbar, the Download Arrow is not there either.

I am running FireFox 82.02 (64 bit) on a windows 10 computer. The " you must log in to this network" message leading to the https://detectportal.firefox.com/success.txt "success.txt response when picked. Iead the article which said to : (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste captiv and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the network.captive-portal-service.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

If you are in a managed environment using an autoconfig file, for example, you could use this to switch the default:

user_pref("network.captive-portal-service.enabled", false);

Did all of that and the current switch is FALSE, but I continue to have the error each time I open FireFox.Been using FF for years with ZERO problems and never want to switch. What am I (not) doing?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm having issues where Yahoo.com won't load on Firefox desktop. Any other site I try works fine... cnet, google, amazon, etc.

My home page is also yahoo. When I open Firefox, yahoo won't load. I'll go to another site which will load fine, then type in yahoo.com (instead of clicking home) and still won't load yahoo.

I get no error message, nothing, just the page won't load and after X amount of time it will stop trying and stay on whatever site I'm on at the moment.

Yahoo will load on chrome, edge, explorer.

Hello all,

I whrite my website in a text-editor and test it with different browsers, now I'll change from frameset to iframe and had followed problem: All files are on same server (local) 3 (4) sources to display in 4 splitted windows. All tested browsers (IE, Edge and Chrome) will show content correctly, only FF in Version 82.0.2 will show content 1 and 2 correct, content 3 will show content 4 while refered content 2. For example see images - one with real existing files (all local) and second with file 3 no existing jet (will be create soon). Browsers on images are from left Chrome, IE, Edge and FF. Right is the html, they all display.

thx in advance - Thomas

Hello, I am using a new HP computer with Firefox as my main browser. I use two screens. I have had problems with Firefox for the past couple of weeks. I usually have a couple of windows of Firefox open. One on the first screen with multiple tabs and another on the other screen. I also run chat programs, Discord, Antivirus programs, Zoom, Slack, and a few others.

Firefox crashing has also crashed other programs. I have had Discord crash a few times and Displayfusion crash as well.

I updated FireFox to the newest version. I even uninstalled and then reinstalled. I updated Windows. Flash is turned off. My video drivers are updated. I checked for viruses and spyware. I did have some Bit Coin Mining malware detected, but it was quarantined last week. All scans now are clear.

Recently I was having the "toolbarbutton id= uitourtooltipclose" error when trying to start up firefox so as a fix I did a refresh through the uninstaller and ever since then I can't recover my old firefox data. I've copied over my old data and replaced files when it's asked me to but no matter what when I start firefox again no changes have happened and my old data isn't restored. I can't sign back in to my firefox account either because I've forgotten the password and for some reason my email won't receive the password reset email. Is there any other way to restore my old firefox data aside from copying and replacing current files since that's not working for me. Making a new profile and copying the old firefox data into the new profile doesn't work either. I'm using windows 10 firefox 82.0.2
