We are receiving this message from Ebay when attempting to list a product (see below). Any suggestions how to work around it please? Thank you.


Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to scgi.ebay.co.uk because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

scgi.ebay.co.uk has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Hi there

New Mac Book Pro M1 running Big Sur 11.1

Firefox is being a nightmare. Forgets everything. Logs out of everything. Logs out of Firefox itself everytime I quit. So everytime i open firefox I have to sign in to Google (my homepage), BUT... because it has also logged me out of Firefox itself, I have to enter a very long password each time. Sooooo boring.

What is going on? Is this really apple not wanting people to use anything other than safari?

Any help gratefully received

Despite having correctly set the choice parameters for opening the "search" page with a certain engine (eg Google), occasionally when a new search window is opened it opens with the YAHOO engine, despite having eliminated this possibility in the Firefox settings.

Tab menu freezes; I can't click between tabs

Tabs in the tab bar randomly, suddenly can't be interacted with by mouse/trackpad pointer, sometimes even just the one and only tab in a window won't close when clicking on the "X." The keyboard commands to cycle between tabs and close tabs still work, but this is frustrating nevertheless. I've tried disabling all the add-ons I added in the month or two before the problem started. I refreshed Firefox, but once I added my add-ons back in, the problem persisted.

What else can I try to fix this? Any input would be appreciated.

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?

Hello! I work on a Mac and have constant problems with buffering and screen freezing. I have refreshed the browser twice as suggested.

Each time I log on or move to another page that colorful basketball appears for quite awhile. When I can finally move to the desired page, it freezes and that basketball appears again.

Help? I work from home and need to use this computer.

Thank you!

Does FF have any role in logging me out of a website due to some time limit? I complained to a site that I lost a lot of typing because it had silently logged me out. I was told by one of their CS people "The issue is actually with your browser. Browsers have a security feature that automatically logs you out of secure areas if you are not moving around, which unfortunately excludes typing. The idea is if you were logged into your online bank account and left your computer, someone else could not sit down 5 minutes later and start doing things in your account. This feature is for any secured area, any area you have to login to access. It is not something we do or can prevent. I am very sorry for the inconvenience."

IMHO this is BS, but please tell me if FF could have terminated my session somehow. Thanks. GD

My firefox browser just updated on both of my computers, with this new current update I can NO longer drag and drop attachments(Images) in outlook email that I have with the company I work for. This feature saves me so so much time since I am in graphics and photography and my emails usually have a lot of attachments. So, why did you take this feature away, I use it ALL the time...please let me know what is going on here or if there is a way around this, I can still load attachments by selecting the paperclip option, but it adds 4 to 5 steps...I love the drag and drop option, can you help me because I really like firefox and want to stay with this browser. thank you, Mark

https://www.ikea.com/addon-app/storageone/pax/web/latest/?range=pax&uiPlatform=web&locale=en-US#/planner

It loads all the tools but the actual planning screen is blank. Used to work trying to see if it's being blocked for security reasons.

Tried refreshing my browser and trouble shooting but no luck.

Hi. Today, I noticed an unknown gmail address is superimposed on every Firefox screen & site I visit. It is locked in position as I scroll.

I've refreshed Firefox, opened it in Safe Mode. Quit & restarted Firefox & still the strangers' gmail address remains in place, even when opening a Private Window.

Is "8brentk@gmail.com" known to anyone? Have I been hacked? What can & should I do to get rid of this weird thing? Thanks.

I am using Firefox on a 2013 Macbook Pro running Yosemite 10.10.5. Every week or so Firefox closes on its own. I will be using Firefox all week and then return to find that Firefox has closed and I can't restore my session. There is no crash report. Does anyone have an idea of what might be causing this to happen and what to do to prevent it? Is there a setting that I don't know about that limits session lengths? This does seem to happen at pretty regular intervals. It doesn't happen with other browsers or applications. Thanks.

cross tab bar flashing line and flashing of all open tabs

My wife called me in this afternoon when big red error message popped up "saying" it is a red alert and the web page used Apple's logo on it, said the old 2011 iMac, OS 10.10.5 Yosemite, is "blocked" and has a virus. It had an 877 phone number to call but we failed to write it down. She did nothing after that. When I saw that I pressed the red window page kill button, upper left. Got the rotating rainbow ball. . . computer working overtime. Next, Command-W to kill the webpage, nada. Finally, pressed the hardware ON/OFF button behind left side of screen. On SAFE restart I opened my account not hers and found Firefox had thin, white, flashing lines across the tab bar area(full width) and tabs were flashing individually. Every time you open a tab, this happens or possibly when it is accessing. So, I upgraded Firefox, leaving the OLD version intact. Upgrade I NOW notice is the 64 bit version.

Is there a fix out there? or, is this thing "infected" with the CCP virus or something? Fix for it?

I will shut down and re-open the old version and see if it still happens and post an update here.
