The last 2 days im getting the do you want to leave this page warning box on every single page. When clicking a link/refreshing or closing the browser.

I dont have to have entered any info in a dialog box or do anything except load a page, and it just keeps coming up. Now its started affecting making a payment online as i have to choose leave this page for every step through a payment process which has messed up some payments.

Why is it suddenly popping up on untouched pages all the time and how the hell can i get rid of it?

Ive not changed any settings recently. And i dont want to start adding scripts to stop it.

More and more sites are starting to "hide" behind cloudfare and such like which means it wants to re-load the web page automatically. Firefox is preventing this and I have to click allow every time, in some cases I can't access the sight due to this. I want to either turn OFF this annoyance permanently or to be able to "white list" certain sites to allow it

Greetings everyone,

I know this may sound like a strange question, but I'm very serious.

I just read an article that says Firefox is in danger of being shut down

I've always seen Firefox as the most trustworthy web browser and so I was planning on using Firefox as my main web browser for the long term. However, after reading this article I've become very anxious.

Article link: https://news.slashdot.org/story/20/08/15/1955237/can-firefox-be-saved

I'd really appreciate any advice.

Hi I have had my firefox setup so that it didn't show the urls drop down with sites I last visited so people didn't see what I looked at so I could be private. Yet this "Top Sites" checkbox was added recently and caused my url bar to show past sites visited. I find this a privacy violation.

Bitdefender reports Firefox contacting unsafe/suspicious sites

I use Bitdefender on a couple of computers. It gives me notifications that Firefox has attempted to contact certain sites that BD lists as dangerous. My question is why Firefox (whether then open or not) would be contacting these sites of its own accord i.e., not because I am initiating any search or other activity. Some of these sites appear to be normal commercial sites, but perhaps a bad certificate or something, like a Carribean airline, CapeAir (I flew a few years ago). Is there something stored in Firefox that would cause it to initiate an outbound attempt to contact these sites? Thank you for any suggestions/information.

For a few days now, whenever I boot up my PC and I click on Firefox to start, instead of starting with the homepage it automatically starts with some sort of ad, usually to update Flash or something. I didn't screencap any of the addresses, but they're definitely random-looking ad addresses. And as far as I know I haven't installed or downloaded anything sketchy to cause this. Any way of remedying this?

Firefox refuses to visit https://discordapp.com, complaining about SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER. Upon inspection of the certificates, the root CA is "COMODO ECC Certification Authority" - Serial Number 16:E5:86:78:E0:70:94:39:4B:DF:DB:4E:FC:A6:3B:DF.

The Firefox certificate manager contains a trusted entry for "COMODO ECC Certification Authority", however it is a different cert with serial number 1F:47:AF:AA:62:00:70:50:54:4C:01:9E:9B:63:99:2A.

I'm wondering what's the cause of this situation? Did Comodo recently change certificates? Can somebody else check which version of the "COMODO ECC Certification Authority" is shipped with their FF?
