I know this is going to push the boundaries on the "stupid question" meter, but I've looked everywhere I know to look. I have a website that I completely trust (inasmuch as one can), and they've recently made some changes to their site that requires the site to reload for an animation. The problem is that FF interrupts with the banner (see image) about reloading and my only l option is the "Allow" or "Dismiss". One requires me to just keep pressing the "Allow" button, while the other stops me from seeing the reload. Is there a way I can stop this?

Thanks in advance, Dan

Today, I started getting this error on many sites, including Google.com and YouTube.com. Example below when trying to connect to google: Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com 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.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

April 8th, 2021

Dear FireFox,

I don't know where else to send this too as your contact us form/page is so complicated and I can't find an email address. You have a type on your page "https://monitor.firefox.com/remove-my-data", under "How do we remove it?". The paragraph below states "... It’s not available yet, but blick below if you are interested in finding out more." I believe "blick" should have been "click".

Thank you,

Crypt Lord

Also, my subject only needs to be four characters as I get this error message for my title "Ensure this value has at least 5 characters (it has 4)."

Hi. This just started happening, I think after the latest update (Firefox 87). When doing a Google or other search clicking a link used to open a new tab, leaving the original tab intact. Now clicking the link opens in the current tab. If I hold down 'ctrl' the link opens in a new tab. In Options I have 'Open links in new tabs....' checked. I also set 'browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs' to true. I have turned off all add-ins and nothing has an affect. Any suggestions?

iPhone works just fine on sites that Firefox won't access, so it's not the modem or the ISP.

I have three FF profiles on my Linux Mint 19.3 system (work, not-work and one for e-tail). Somehow the problem only appeared after I added that last one. All profiles have the same syntax; I checked the files. Neither one is set to be the dominant one. Typically, I don't use more than one at a time.

I also use Claws mail. Whenever I get any mail with a link I want to check out, I just used to click on that link and it opened in a new tab in the FF browser profile that was currently open. Similarly, whenever I wanted to see the HTML version of a mail, I right-clicked on the html-icon and chose open. Again, it picked the open browser.

Now, though, whenever I pick either one of those options above, I get the "Choose User Profile" box. If I pick the profile that is currently open, I get an error telling me that it's already running.

Since I mostly read email when I use the no-work FF profile, I tried to add "firefox -P NotWork -no-remote --class NotWorkProfile" but that also resulted in the choose user profile box to open.

My current work-around is to copy the link and open it in a new tab, or pull the whole mail into the tab to see the HTML version. Quite annoying.

Is there any way to get it to ignore all other profiles but the currently open one? Thank you for anyone who has an idea. Let me know if there's anything else I may add to explain the situation.

[My apologies if this isn't the right forum; I'm also attempting to ask this question in the Linux Mint and Claws forums, if those exist.]

When I open FF, the window only displays the top menus. If I click the Green dot it will then open full screen. Pressing the green dot once again only displays that 1 inch window. The problem does not occur in safe mode for Firefox. I turned off all of my extensions and turned off hardware Accelerator mode yet the problem still happens.

This just began yesterday and I don't believe I installed anything.

I use a website (u-bill.com) to access my Product and Account information for software I purchased. To find my purchase I need to enter my email address and 1 of 3 other items of information: Last 4 digits of CC; Order ID Nr; or Password. I am able to enter my email address but the text boxes for the other 3 do not appear. This only happens when I use Firefox as it is my preferred browser. I am able to enter the information in the form using Chrome. A search of possible fixes suggested disabling "hardware acceleration". I tried that and it did not work. Today was the first time I tried to access this information although I have had the account for 1 year so I do not know if Firefox ever was able to access it. I am using Firefox V 87.0 (64 Bit) and Windows 10. Here are two screen shots: #1 is the form using Firefox. #2 is the form using Chrome.

Hello!

I've upgraded my PC to Mint 20.1 and applied the latest upgrade to Firefox 87 also. Prior to these last upgrades I could use Firefox, ie after upgrade to Mint 20.1 Firefox worked then, after applying the latest upgrades in the Mint Upgrade Manager, including a Firefox one, it did not.

Now Firefox will not open any pages anywhere. This includes the about:preferences page (thus obviating almost all advice I've seen) and even a local two-line "Hello world" HTML page in my local Documents directory.

Nothing displays at all, not even an address in the address bar (unless I type one in but that makes no difference). See the attached, unexciting, screenshot. Things I've tried already:

  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Restarting with add-ins disabled
  • Clearing the cache
  • Copying over a profile into the .Mozilla folder from a version that worked before the upgrade
  • Deleting and reinstalling from scratch
  • Trying the first four items again on the fresh reinstall
  • Installing V85 (which works on my laptop)
  • Trying the first four items yet again on V85
  • Installing V84, which was the version prior to the upgrade on my PC
  • Going back to V87 fresh then re-starting Linux in safe mode and trying again
  • Looking at the traffic in Wireshark (didn't really help, that one)
  • Shouting at the screen (was even less helpful than Wireshark)

In no case is there any change in behaviour. The only thing that will display is the "troubleshooting" page and I attach here the text from that.

Am I the only person to have experienced this lately? Similar reports for much older versions exists but they're mostly for Windows so no use to me.

So -- can anyone suggest anything? Bear in mind I can't get to any about: pages nor do any web developer options work.

All the best

Hello,

since a few days Firefox does not load several pages. I can browse normaly but pages like "https://www.etsy.com/" stay white.

Also on my old phone (Android 7.0) i have to restart firefox since a week or so because the app wouldn't load any page anymore. The issue looks the same on my desktop version. I press enter, there is a small reaction for loading but then it stops and there is no site, just the background.

What can be the cause?

I use firefox many years now and there was never such problem.
