Mac Airpad; loud beeping at startup like a smoke detector; referred to an 866 number to fix

Attempting to access a portal from a secure trusted site and up popped a page with persistent beeping having a warning that a problem existed (!) and to call an 866-xxx-xxxx number for help. Called Apple tech who helped clear the annoying sound, checked everything conceivable, cleared deep caches in library along with histories and website data. Ran a Malwarebytes scan which was clean. After all that, opened firefox again - same problem. Apple tech then stated he'd done all he could and the problem was likely on firefox's end. After we hung up, I did a clean uninstall and reinstall of firefox, opened the browser, and there it was again! Did a force quit and haven't used firefox since. If anyone has knowledge of this problem, please use as much English as possible, as clearly I barely know what I'm talking about... also, I temporarily have no current access to the computer in question.

Firefox for 63.0.3 (64-bit) for Linux Mint 1.0

Where are extension permissions set?

Bookmark tabs in TreeStyleTabs has error popup, it needs permission to create bookmarks.

The preferences search didn't help... Tree Style Tabs has container permission, nothing about bookmarks, no add button there... no link to anything... just nada.

I also have 'Bookmark Tree for Tree Style Tab' which also has no info about these permissions.

The solution is going to probably be... 1) Another settings page that wasn't included in the search? 2) Firefox updates broke the extension, so... wait?

Today when using firefox a survey box appeared. I answered the questions. Another window informed me that I had 'won' the opportunity to have an iphone for £1? I did run my security who found nothing wrong with the PC. Is this a scam and not Firefox?

Firefox does not trust DigiCert Global Root CA even though trust is set

I've had trouble accessing websites that use a certificate that's signed with the DigiCert Root CA. As an example, if I open up blog.mozilla.org, I get a SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER.

This is somehow related to my user profile. If I create a new profile, the problem disappears.

I've tried deleting cert*.db in my profile directory to no avail. I checked about:config and I couldn't find any relevant non-default configuration.

To my surprise, if I want to manually set the trust of the certificate in the certificate manager ("Edit Trust"), it tells me that the certificate is trusted. However, if I click on "View Certificate", I get the following error: "Could not verify this certificate because the issuer is unknown."

I don't know much about CAs, but it seems to be surprising how the issuer of a Root CA could be unknown, isn't that the whole point of a Root CA that it does not need to be signed by another certificate?

The more important question: Where in my profile may I have a non-default option that causes Firefox to not trust the DigiCert Global Root CA?

When I first open Firefox I see the bookmarks bar at the top like it is supposed to be, but by the time it's fully opened the bookmarks are no longer at the top. I've tried closing and restarting Firefox, rebooting the computer and "Hiding and viewing" the bookmarks bar but can get it back on top. I am however able to open the bookmarks in the sidebar.

I recently updated the newest Firefox version, at least I think so. I watched the Video about creating and accessing bookmarks. Before the latest version I created many folders and placed websites of many non-profit organizations and other arts resources. Now, when I click the star the follow occurs: Star turns blue and moves to clip board? icon. First option: View bookmark side bar; Second: Show All Bookmarks; Third: View Pocket List (I don't use Pocket); Forth: Bookmarks Toolbar; Fifth: Other Bookmarks; Sixth: Show all Bookmarks. These are fewer options than listed on the Firefox bookmarks video. When I click: Show all Bookmarks a grey and white empty box appears with the the top title Library. When I click Show All Bookmarks, nothing occurs. What's also odd is that when I bring up a website like nypl.org the star turns blue. But I can't find that bookmark, only listed, without a name, of 157

Dear Whomever,

Isn’t it just grand that the almighty Firefox doesn’t work for all websites while Internet Explorer has no trouble or problems whatsoever? I recently (since the “Upgrade,” I believe) lost my ability to Log-In to my “Capital One” account (what I have been repeatedly getting is “We seem to have hit a snag.”). However, when I tried using my Internet Explorer, I had no trouble. The “brilliance” of Mozilla never ceases to amaze, but more appropriately, frustrate.

Respectfully,

Gregory P. Falasz

Went back in history to when one particular website would load and now get an error message on that. This is since the last update. Tried a couple other browsers. Worked fine. Tried the fix recommended by Firefox. Did nothing. (Something to do with proxy settings.)

Now when I search, I get Amazon almost all of the time instead of a variety of options.

Is Firefox now beholden to Amazon?

I used to really really like Firefox and have been using it for years. Is it time to switch to Google Chrome?

When opening a fresh window/tab on Mozilla Firefox, the address bar is selected by default so you can start typing a url, search, etc (first image).

I would like to change that, so everytime I open a new window/tab the "Search the Web" bar is already selected by default (second image).

All of that while keeping the "Web Search" feature from Options>Home as my homepage.

Any ideas?

Obs: I'm having problems with the "Add images" feature in this forum, so I used postimage.

Firefox is beginning to become more of an annoyance than it is worth - most of the reason for this is the continual string of updates, messages, click bars and pop ups it shows on start up.

No these are not spam or bad add ins, they are programmed interruptions inherent to FF.

Users of FF want to get on and do things. Having to close windows with news about the latest update (and there are soooo many updates), or news that the opml feed is now on your desktop (another thing to waste time attending to) or messages about privacy or messages about syncing pages and settings or pop up messages about how FF is private etc are just plain annoying.

It is getting to the point where I expect to wait longer for FF to start and then have to wade through cruft, than it takes to boot the entire Windows 10 OS and deal with the Ms cruft on the log in screens.

If people want to learn, then they will look stuff up. So seriously - stop popping up tabs, notices, messages, dialog boxes and other cruft. Let the users just get on with using FF rather than putting up with cruft about using FF.

FF is now officially slower to start than every other browser we have and slower than me booting an entire windows 10 pc - all because of continuous updates which don't seem to do anything for me - or most users. oh sure, you can say its for security but if you are patching security holes as regularly as you are updating FF then there is something terribly wrong in your programming standards and coding methodologies - not to mention test process.

Its a trend to tell people about your product - but its one that annoys users. We just want to get on with using whatever - so please get out of our way and let us just use the product.

I like FF - but I liker it a lot less than I used to as its now annoying the crud out of me almost every day.

My 10c worth.

I work for a state organization use a secure proxy server and have an updated certification. That said Firefox does not recognize the cert and throws an error on every single page I open. Some pages do not give me the option to create an exception and to be honest nobody would find a browser useful if they have to create an exception to reach every page. I do not have the legenda file that is mentioned it other posts I already checked. I cannot change my cert it is correct. How does this get fixed or do I just delete.

I am unable to print in Firefox 64.0.0, either to a PDF program or a laser printer. Printer status shows that the document is spooling, but never completes. Disabling all plugins had no effect. The same page prints just fine with Internet Explorer 11.0.95 and Vivaldi 2.1.1337.51. I had no problems printing pages in 63.0.3 only a day or two ago.

I installed 60.4.0esr and it prints fine, so this may be more a report of a problem than a request for immediate help.
