Every time I click on a link from any browser page, I get a page that says to try again, like couldn't connect error message to the effect. Once I click on the try again button it loads just fine. Is this a browser issue or have I possibly been hacked and the hacker is getting my info forwarded to him/her causing the browser to not recognize the command, and then once I click try again it goes on like normal?

Starting Firefox( going to Google.Com ) I get either "Secure Connection Not Available" or "Google.com taking to long to load". It is an HTTPS-Only Mode Alert. If I reload the page it goes to Google.com. Also if I create a new tab it works fine. When is says it is taking to long to load it is only loading for a few seconds before I get the message. The problem is only on the initial opening of Firefox. Thanks

Capital One virtual account "eno" add-on does not work. There have been several complaints on the web about this. Will it be fixed??? I prefer to use Firefox as a browser and I am wondering if Capital One is intentionally forcing people to use another web browser. The Google Chrome extension I added to Firefox does not work. I want to use Firefox and may need to find a new virtual credit card provider if Capital One is not compatible with Firefox. It used to work wonderfully until they obviously changed something.

Thank you

I don't know why FF decided that the tabs should be on the bottom of the page away from everything else in FF 93 but I don't like it. Is there a way to put the tabs back at the top of the page so it's up there with the menu bar and address window? Where it's easy to see and work with. You know like it was before FF fixed things...

When viewing a pdf there can be links to different parts of the same pdf. Is there a way to preview these links instead of clicking them and losing my place in the pdf? Perhaps through mouseover, like if I mouseover a link to a previous paragraph in the pdf it shows me a box with a preview of where clicking that link would take me to the document?

The other day I downloaded SaveFrom.net Helper but then shortly after I deleted it. The program was deleted from the computer except that the green line with the program name shows as an extension on the bar at the top of the Firefox page.

I cannot delete it. If I delete it once it reappears next time I load Firefox. The extension does not show up in add ons and extensions in Tools Firefox.

I have read an earlier reply that suggests delete Firefox and reinstall Firefox and that will get rid of it.

However, I am not anxious to try that as over time I have already extensions ad add ons and other customisation of Firefox, including all my bookmarks and I don't want to lose these and start again.

So here is my question. As the program is deleted and as their extension does not show up in Tools and then adddons, can I assume that the existence of the program name as an extension on one of the title bars at the top of Firefox is just an irritation and that this SaveFrom program cannot in any way add or do anything to my computer?

I can then live with it rather than deleting Firefox and starting again.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you.

I created a *.json file and cannot find a way to open it to reinstate the bookmarks that I had in Firefox. I do not have bookmarks in other search engines, it seems the only help it for that type of problems. I read other help articles, I do not have the things that were advise from Application menu. I did not make any changes to this laptop either, I cannot understand why my bookmark had disappeared???!!! What I had was a windows soft reset, which did wipe the bookmarks. Today I had opened a couple of websites, and when I look for the bookmarks I am only shown these 5-6 bookmarks!!!! I had loads as crafts from You tube and others! Such an inconvenience!

As the title says and I've tried the following:

- Restarting my laptop - Clearing the cache and cookies - Disabling hardware acceleration - Disabling Enhanced Tracking Protection - Running in Troubleshoot mode - Refreshing FF - Reinstalling FF (Currently running 93.0, 64bit)

Youtube buffers the video but won't actually play it. The same goes for Reddit.

I'm at a loss for what else to try.

I am a web developer who often writes websites on my own local computer. I use Apache web server, and using both the httpd.conf file and Windows' "hosts" file ( C:\Windows\System32\etc\hosts ) I can make an alias for 127.0.0.1, otherwise known as localhost. Because my name is greg, I can add a server name to my localhost, like http://greg/test.html.

This works pretty well, but sometimes when I add a new alias, like greg or gregory, Firefox doesn't pick up on it right away. I can go to http://greg/test.html in Chrome, and it goes to the local web page just fine. But if I try it in Firefox, it tries to redirect me to "http://www.greg.com". The usual fix is to go into Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> Cached Web Content, then press CLEAR.

But this doesn't always work, and it seems like no matter what I clear, Firefox insists on not looking up my local server alias, but instead redirects me to https://www.greg.com.

How do I force Firefox to look for http://greg/ only on my local server?

How to Advise Mozilla that Capricious Changes to FireFox Interface are Unwelcome!

Perhaps some like change for its own sake. Many just want to use a browser to get work done.

I am Reticent to Upgrade FireFox because I now expect something To Change, To Break, I don't want the look and feel to change when I want to get work done! I want security fixes but broken features and a rearranged interface hinders the use of a browser.

Continuity is key to smooth use of a Browser. Moving menus, changing tabs, rearranging features, dumbing down menu titles is most unwelcome.

I particularly don't want browser interface changes intended for a tablet or pad for use on a desktop or laptop computer.

Changes to the Appearance should be OPT IN not OPT OUT.

I am having trouble getting the auto-complete function to work properly so I can just type the first few letters of a website I visited before.

I found the answer on the web. Here is what it said to do:

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 URLB and pause while the list is filtered

(3) If the browser.urlbar.autoFill preference is bolded and "modified" or "user set" to false, double-click it to restore the default value of true

I did this and noticed that "true" is already selected. The auto-complete function should be working but its not working. Do I need to discard the browser and re-install it again?

I even tried changing to false, and closing the browser, then opening it up again and changing it back to true but that didn't work.
