I would like to create Certificate backup since I am planning to install new operating system.

Setting - Certificates - view certificates - selected the certificate which I wanted to backup - click Backup - type File name - Save - typed certificate backup password 2x - click OK

The following message appears: Failed to create the PKCS #12 backup file for unknown reasons.

I tried several times + I tried also Backup all option - but same issue appears.

Approx. 5 months ago I did certificate backup for my wife and it worked without any issues, now I have no clue what is the reason for not working.

Any idea/suggestion?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Firefox 92.0.1 (64-bit) Firefox seems to open two connections whenever it connects to a url.

I have a local web server that only allows a single connection at a time.

When I enter localhost:5409 as the address firefox immediately opens two connections to the port. The first connection sends no data whatsoever. The GET request is sent out the second connection. This is not useful.

I think if you want to open two connections the GET request should go out on the first connection.

Perhaps the above behaviour is by design but I think it is a problem.

Please explain

I work on computers without admin rights, and i can't install add-ons,

how to make a true portable Firefox without using registry at all

I really don't understand that a free software allows such a blocking, even if chrome doesn't pose any problem with add-ons.

is there a way to lanuch firefox with a option to not use registry or to redirect registry in file or in a not locked custom registry like

hkey_local_machine/software/policies/Mozilla_portable/Firefox

or something like that ?

Hi, I love Firefox and have been using it. But since today I cannot even log in to paypal.com. Gives a security verification error. New window doesn't help either. What gives? I have to switch to Chrome now? IE11 no problem. Lucky for me, because I had to transfer funds from paypal to my bank.

Like everyone else (almost), heavily overdoing everything. To the point of the extreme actually.

Not a good feature! best regards, John

The minimize, restore and close window buttons don't work in Firefox 94. I can perform these operations other ways, such as pressing Ctrl+W, or double-clicking the title bar to restore. But the actual buttons don't work, even with all my add-ons disabled. They work in other profiles, just not my main one.

Has anyone heard of a problem like this before? (I'm on Windows 7 x64)

Firefox 94.0.1 (64-bit) ~ Windows 7 ~ No anti-virus except Windows Defender ~ No new extensions installed that haven't already been operating for weeks or longer.


Suddenly, after doing NOTHING except restarting my computer, my 'minimize', 'maximize', 'restore' and 'close' buttons are missing.

Any 'solutions' I've looked up talk about "Tablet Mode" (which I highly doubt I'm in) or other nonsense, the options for which either didn't exist when I opened suggested menus, or were simply techno-jargon-gobbledy-gook.

I doubt it's anything to do with Windows, since 'Waterfox', 'Microsoft Edge', 'Chrome' and other browsers all have their buttons intact.

When I opened Firefox in 'troubleshoot mode' the buttons were back. But nobody in those unhelpful 'help articles' said what to do after opening in troubleshoot mode, so I closed it, opened Firefox the usual way again, and the buttons were still missing.

Some logical, properly explained help would be greatly appreciated.

Problem with using languages on Facebook using Firefox It has not annoyed me before this time. I removed the previous version of Firefox and installed a new one. I notice since yesterday up to now, it doesn't support writing in two languages ( English + Arabic ) in one topic The English sentences or phrases I entered a midst Arabic text as ( examples ) become not arranged or distort, though I added the Arabic language to the browser.

Whether I choose English language only in the Firefox or I add Arabic ( to be two languages) , the problem is the same. (( cannot be fixed))  ?
