I am getting a stack of these errors preventing me from browsing to secure websites which includes google.com. Luckily my Chrome Browser and Edge Browser work fine. This is just another nail in the coffin for me to close the door on this browser which is just getting more and more unreliable.

For now, I have migrated to Chrome to allow me to go about my business of without Firefox telling me Google.com and many other secure sites are unsafe to browse!

Please bring back the override and accept the risk. I would rather have a warning and transfer risk to me rather than have a draconian rule telling me to use a different browser to resolve the issue. For now, you have forced my choice.

I cannot believe I am the only User to experience this issue. I do not want to delete all my cookies etc as I want to be selective in what I delete but again, this option has been taken away from me as well.

Looking forward to a solution.

Thanks.

Hi. Since FF v103 it seems, when working with a VPN, and then trying to use also a browser extension VPN, it either does not or does not connect until after 45s. Before it was immediate. It works in all other browsers (incl FF before v103). So this is a recent change in FF that harms normal VPN connections. I found out by trial and error, that changing the port of the VPN extension to 443 and disabling and enabling the extension and going back to v103 from v103.0.1 helped, but that should not be like that. So something has been broken in the latest v103.0.1 - please kindly look into it. Thank you!

I got an email awhile back stating Firefox was going to offer a VPN service, with a 30 free trial offer. MY question is does the Firefox VPN offer a split tunneling option like other VPN services offer? From what I understand, split tunneling is a feature where the VPN service will be active, or connected in one browser but then it would be disabled or disconnected in another browser. Can you please explain if I got that correct? Thank you.

i get "your connection is not private" error on most web browsers like opera, chrome, edge. Some websites are still accessible but others are not.

In Google Chrome and Opera show as: "Your connection is not private" Attackers might be trying to steal your information from domain.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards).

In Mozilla Firefox show as: "Your connection is not secure"

      The owner of domain.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

In Microsoft Edge show as: "Your connection isn’t private" Attackers might be trying to steal your information from domain.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards).

How to fix this errors on opera, chrome, edge, firefox browser? How to fix "Your connection is not secure" error in firefox browser?

Firefox currently blocks port 10080 to protect against a presumed security threat. Linksys routers use port 10080 to allow users to log in to the guest network so Firefox has rendered Guest Network logins to be unaccessable forcing router owner to allow "guests" to log in to the the primary lan and potentially cause issues with the very network they are trying to protect from outside issues. Firefox needs to provide a way for guests to log into the guest network within their software... particularly in the ios and android versions of the Firefox apps. Please provide a reasonable workaround so that I don't put my network at risk by allowing guests to log in to my primary network.

I pressed the firefox refresh button a year ago. It said none of my bookmarks would be lost. Ive tried countless methods to open these previous bookmarks. Nothing works. I've been given several solutions which all involve complex and many sequences. I am not tech savvy at all. Is there not a simple method to open up old bookmarks by inserting the title somewhere  ?? I have windows 7 and there is on my desktop an icon saying "old firefox data".

Thankyou Philip

When I tried to open hotmail in firefox today, it gives me a blank page. Yesterday I it was working fine and all the yesterdays before that. I have checked the privacy and security and put it in as an exception. I have checked to see if there was a certificate needed or if I could put it in as an exception, but Firefox says it has a certificate and no exception is needed. I've closed out of hotmail and opened it. I've closed out of Firefox and opened it. I've restarted my computer. None of these have worked. It is still a blank page. Please help.

Bookmark Manager in Firefox Nightly 107.0a1 (2022-10-02) (64-bit) can't be maximized in Windows 7. When the bookmark manager is opened and I attempt to maximize it, only the upper left corner of the page is displayed. This is the same portion that is displayed prior to attempting to maximize the window, but the rest of the maximized window is grayed-out.

Restarting in safe mode does not solve the issue. It used to work correctly until a few days ago. Currently, the only way to resolve this issue is to restore to the last save point in Windows 7. This seems to be a bug introduced with one of the latest patches.

I run several versions of Firefox concurrently and recent added 102.3.0 ESR with no issues.

Backed Up bookmarks from a previous stable version to a .json file and imported to v102.3.0#

All the favicons were missing, replaced with a globe.

Visited a dozen sites to see if reloaded them but only 1 loaded icon. These are my own https sites with similar coding an NO code to hide icons - included google. No change.

Read all the posts I could. Verified databases, checked about:config BUT nothing changed, all bookmarks just show the globe icon. Even re-installed that version of Firefox, but same result. Started Firefox with an older profile from earlier version, for a rebuild. Same again.

Is this a bad feature of 102.3.0, an error or something else? Run 78.15ESR with same bookmarks and all are correct.

Any clues above all those published which do not work

p.s. anyone found a work around for THIS version to get green padlock back?

Hi, Since some weeks the Norton Virus Sanner (Smart Scan) tells me that the file

   c\program files\mozilla firefox\00009757.tmp is infected with a trojan horse.

The file is removed. But with the next scan it shows up again.

Do you have any insight in this problem (false alarm, caused by some other program)?
