This is the error message that has suddenly started appearing today whenever I attempt to open a site (Google, my email, etc):

"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."

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. But the same problem remains. I have also run a Kaspersky complete analysis, but it shows that everything is OK - even though it most certainly is not OK. It is as if Microsoft is forcing me to use Microsoft Edge, a browser I don't like. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would really like to get Firefox back safe and unharmed.

Thanks, Julie

Forms not filling in on most sites with my address info, WIndows 10, Firefox 86 64 bit

There are addresses set up in options and Forms and Autofill. There is a checkmark next to Forms and Autofill.

Just not filling in forms, not sure why.

Thoughts?

Only add-in is Ublock Origin

Thank you Peter

After firefox updated to 85.0 and added a new printer interface it will not print. everything else still prints fine and even when going back to the system dialog box it still will not print. It acts like it is going to print but nothing prints. I can save it to PDF and print okay but not to my printer directly.

Hi, because of a crypto scam (already 2 weeks ago) i am looking to recover my browser history? I need the information for the company which investigates my case.

I found some info online to recover, but it only worked a little, but not what i was looking for? 

I hope somebody can give some instructions , tricks to try to recover something.

New laptop. I believe there are major issues with Windows 10. I've posted them on MS message boards but no one is experiencing them (don't notice? Don't care?). I use Firefox, and while I don't believe Firefox is the problem, I thought I'd post some of them here (the short version).

Links open by themselves without me clicking or tapping on them. When I'm in a Hotmail email or message board compose screen, or a web page with fields to enter personal information, very often when I click to a spot, the screen scrolls up by itself (happens in Chrome too). Sometimes, writing an email, when I click to a spot, the cursor will instead appear a few lines up (not where I clicked). Even if I don't click, the cursor might, all of a sudden, jump somewhere else while I'm typing, or paused typing (even in a Google search field). At times, when I hit the backspace - to remove characters, text - I'm taken back to the previous web page instead. I have seen this complaint when I searched it. But I don't want an Add On that disables the backspace. I just want it to work as it should, not take me back a page.

And no, it's not malware. And I didn't have these issues with my old Windows 8 and 8.1 laptop.

I am experiencing a problem with drop down menus, on all websites, when using firefox. I had to post this question using the Edge browser, because the mandatory "Which topic best describes your question?" requires opening a drop down menu, which I cannot do with firefox. It has been this way for quite some time now, so I don't use firefox that much anymore. I always keep firefox updated, and I have tried disabling all plugins/addons to see if they were causing the problem. No luck.

Any ideas on how to solve this would be most welcome.

I just updated to a new laptop, and I'm now having a problem with Firefox. I'll be reading a page, when it will suddenly zoom in - the zoom feature stays at 100%, but I have to scroll across the page to get to the end of lines. I can't figure out how to make it go back to normal - I have to close the tab, then open a new tab and open the URL again on that.

What is causing this? Is it a setting I can change? How do I fix it?

Thanks!!!

Often I have multiple important tabs open which are difficult to rediscover. I have the option enabled for Firefox to remember my tabs before closing. However, for example sometimes when a link gets opened from an external application (by accident), all my tabs get lost. Can I restore the session from just before it happened?

(I asked the same thing last year but got no replies and I'm still having this issue today, I tried to be as descriptive as possible but maybe it was too much text to read. I apologize)

hi, I am using telerik reporting for reporting purposes on in my angular project. I have created two reports, one of them is in portrait mode and other is in landscape mode. Now , when I press print button , and print preview opens up, it is defaulted to portrait mode even if the report that I am printing is designed in landscape mode.

It can be seen in the following pictures. https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-03-01-07-48-32-b4df57.png https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-03-01-07-50-12-54a6d9.png

This might create confusion for the users. This is not desirable.

Is there a way to make it so that the print preview opens in the orientation in which my report is designed.

Note: It is working perfectly in google chrome.
