I've migrated to a new computer and installed the latest version of Firefox. I now get this persistent message when I try to access my email on Yahoo:

"The latest version of Yahoo Mail is not supported on your browser. Please use a supported browser below or use basic Mail". I then choose the basic Mail.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox and once I move around folders for a while, (Inbox, Trash, Sent), Yahoo remembers and gives me the latest version.

How can I make this permanent?

PUP.Optional.DefaultSearch is Malwarebytes’ detection name for a family of browser hijackers targeting Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Symptoms The browsers’ default search engine was changed to one that belonged to the threat-actors. I am german so probably I need your patience in helping me to clean my system resp. Mozilla.

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at passport.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

After the most recent update, currently on 92.0, the Minimize, Maximize, and Close buttons are invisible. They are still there and I can get the tool-tip if I hover over them with the mouse, but visually they are completely gone.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

I have three devices, a desk top, a laptop and an iPad. The desktop is running a very outdated version of Firefox which means it is not compatable just to update it. The forum tried to help me with this a while back, but it was deemed not to be possible, and the best way would have been to do a fresh new install, but there was noway to save log-ins/passwords bookmarks. My devices all have the Firefox sync and that is so far working well. My question is, if I dragged my PC's Firefox into the present by performing a fresh new install, would my synced items install ok....after invoking the Sync feature on the new install. Logic tells me this should be so, as it worked ok with the new iPad, but I know from experience that logic doesn't always come into play. (Windows7) Many thanks

All of a sudden I have to log in to all the common websites I use such as Yahoo mail. It could have been something I changed but I don't know what. From what I understand it may have something to do with the setting Cookies and site data. I think that if the box that says "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is checked then the log ins will not be remembered. The problem I have is that particular setting is ticked and it is shaded and I cant uncheck it. Can someone provide a simple solution please?

I read that Firefox will using the Snap version by default on Ubuntu 21.10 and beyond. Will the non-Snap version still be available in lets say Ubuntu 22.04 and beyond? The reason I ask is because I use Firejail to sandbox Firefox and Firejail doesn't work with Snaps and yes I know that Snaps and Flatpacks both sandbox apps but I prefer Firejail because of the Private Home profile (nothing is saved in this profile settings, bookmarks, add-ons etc) its way more secure than the sandbox offered by a Snap.

Why is my FF keeps on filling up memory even without doing any browsing?

Because my FF started crashing a couple of days ago, I just monitored the Memory Usage on Task Manager. I opened both FF and Edge, without any browsing. Edge is maintaining memory usage at around 129MB (without browsing), but FF keeps on increasing the memory usage. About 20 mins since opening FF, FF memory usage is 3,241 MB (without any browsing at all) and it still keeps climbing as I type.

I am attaching a couple of Task Manager screen shots.

Edge memory usage is up on Image 4 because I am using Edge to type this message.

Can someone please help?

(Current FF memory usage is 3,518 MB - no browsing at all).

I use Win 10 and I'm up to date.

================

Update: (1) I refreshed FF which stopped continuous increase of memory usage (while not browsing). Also, I could see FF lines disappear from Task Manager almost immediately on exiting FF.

(2) To get back "quick launch shortcuts" I copied file "Pref.js" from my old profile. Continuous memory use while idling started again. FF lines were still there on Task Manager after exiting FF.

===============

2nd Update: (I am not a tech savy person) I had a feeling that increasing memory usage while idling on startup (without browsing at all) has something to do with Home Page, website shortcuts. I had about 29 website shortcuts on 4 rows. Did a fresh installation of FF 92.0, deleted all old profiles, and started filling website shortcuts one by one while checking idling memory usage after each shortcut. After creating a shortcut for "https://www.espncricinfo.com/", the idling memory kept on going up and up. I have now removed this website from my shortcuts and the issue appears solved. My browser settings have "Clear cookies on exit" and "Delete history on exit". I use Win 10 64-bit. Can someone please confirm my observation is correct?

When i click on the lock icon in the address bar, nothing happens (I would expect to see the encryption and certificate, but no widget opens). When I right-click into the page and select "View Page Info", "Security", "View Certificate", no certificate exists. Only generic info is shown (Servers+Authorities). Also an error is reported in the system log, confirming that no certificate exists: JavaScript error: chrome://browser/content/browser-siteIdentity.js, line 642: TypeError: issuerCert is undefined

Questions:

  • Why does Firefox show the lock icon while no certificate exists?
  • How does Firefox establish a secure connection without having a certificate? (From my understanding a certificate is needed for TLS to work.)

Version used: Firefox 78.12.0esr ('Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0'), no add-ons or plugins.

I generally have loads of tabs open, and until recently this wasn’t an issue (perhaps until last upgrade?), but now, I can hardly move between tabs, the drop down list showing tab selection doesn’t work, nor does the left/right arrows. When I delete a tab, it leaves a ‘space’ where the tab was, only ‘back filling’ after I’ve opened up another tab to full screen mode and then minimised it again, at which point it goes to the very left-most tab and the only way I can get to tabs further down the list, is by deleting them in the manner described. I’ve actually got 2 laptops (Win 7 & 8.1), and it’s now happening on both of them. This might have something to do with memory management/the computer’s page file, but as things stand, I’m SERIOUSLY going to be switching to another browser - despite sticking with Firefox for many-a-year. BTW, I’m actually writing this on my phone, as I couldn’t now do it on either of my laptops (hence I’m currently unable to attach anything/provide screen grabs etc. I guess the only way to ‘clear’ this issue, would be to either close/restart Firefox or my laptop - neither of which I really want to do. Is there a way that I can use an earlier version of the browser and prevent it automatically updating? Yours, a now very frustrated longtime user,
