I continue to get message "Sorry, invalid login. Please verify the User ID and/or Password you entered." while trying to login to Altra Federal Credit Union. Never had the issue before on Firefox. I am able to login using other browsers. Altra has indicated to me an update glitch involving Firefox browser. Any help?

At work with work with test servers. Sometimes those are using just HTTP, sometimes HTTPS protocol. However, once Firefox sees HTTPS, it does not let to go back to HTTP protocol.

Not sure, why a browser should know better than a user (when typed the whole URL, including HTTP://) to use HTTPS. Also, when the error page ("Unable to connect") comes, there is no option to use HTTP instead.

Why on the address bar, when either Delete key or right-click-delete are used the autofil for that host / domain are not cleared? Why that error page doesn't have a well described (warning the user of the consequences) option to still use HTTP?

Hi

I don't know what's happened to cause this, but for the last few days if I grab a torrent file online, I only get the option to save the file, no option to automatically open in my torrent client.

I have been to Firefox general settings, and Applications - "Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing" but .torrent is not listed. When I search "torrent" in the Applications search box, I get only "magnet" as a result, nothing for "torrent" files (see image).

Any advice on how to automatically open .torrent files from the web in my torrent client would be appreciated.

I have a user whose Firefox has stopped working. It will start up, but nothing ever is displayed in the window. The address bar and buttons are all there, but nothing from a web site, just a white page. If I enter a url, or click on a bookmark the refresh button never changed to an 'X', but I can see traffic from her machine going across our firewall. Try to go into setup and it's the same thing. About:config displays nothing. It's all just a blank page. Other browsers seem to work fine.

I've tried refreshing, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled, but it didn't fix it. Any ideas?

Thanks.

I'm a little surprised they've taken away the option of choice when it comes to downloading files. But what's most annoying, is the manager opens u and drops down blocking my view of the page, much less that it makes ms stop and think about what I am about to download.

I do not understand the purpose of this. The old way was safer, cleaner and less annoying. How can, or am I able to get that "choice" back?

When searching for a fix I have seen that that there is/was a similar feature in the Edge browser but it can be undone. I feel Firefox users deserve that option.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Hi all. Did a search but found nothing that helped. Just updated my Fedora 36 workstation and tried to play videos in CNN and MSNBC web sites and get the error message: "Code: 4 | Message: Something went wrong during native playback." I am using the latest Firefox WEB browser. UTube videos are playing fine. Someone has stated on the Fedora forum that they have the same problem but has no problem in Chrome on the same machine. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Bob BTW, this happened in two machines running Fedora 36 and Firefox 101.0.

Sorry for asking a question so many others have asked but I am having trouble completing fixes that were suggested.

I do project research with over 25+ websites and can't do without my p/words especially, but also my bookmarks. I just reset my PC Win 10 and as you know this operation cleans out everything but OEM apps.

So, I downloaded latest ver. FF but my passwords and bookmarks aren't there which I actually anticipated.

I read many posts and replie s on how to restore from old Firefox date filesbut I just don't get it (about:support, Help > troubleshooting information). I located my old FF profile easily. OK fine, now what? Instructions said to copy profile but to where? And how, exactly? Do I paste it somewhere?

Another "Reply" said to locate "Local Directory, no root", then click Paste and restart Firefox. Where is Local Directory? Is there a FF restart button?

Frustrated.

Thanks.

Have just been given the security warning for a site www.solar-thailand. On using the advanced button I am told that " Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for www.solar-thailand.com." and that the certificate is only valid for (list of sites): "The certificate is only valid for the following names: sim456.com, www.sim456.com, dodeetoday.com, home-dd.com, solar-thailand.com, service-thailand.com, dcspump.com, cable-thailand.com, led-thailand.com, tp-scg.com, 3d-thailand.com". Am I going mad or does the site actually exist in the list??? If someone could please explain this I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance, Peter.

I've attached a screenshot that shows that 176 comments are below that video but none load. I'm using the latest Firefox version on Windows 7.

When I try and open some articles on the BBC new wesite I get the attached message. How can that be resolved please? VPN is off. Error: 410 Gone Your client has made a request for a BBC domain that is no longer hosted on Akamai, but the request was sent to an Akamai IP address. This suggests your client is using a very out-of-date DNS response, or one that has been altered. If you're using VPN software or similar, try disabling it and / or contact your VPN provider's technical support.

In the last few weeks Firefox will not open even when using admin rights. NOTE: I have followed all available posts including multiple uninstalls (complete), deleting Firefox folders, reinstalling, etc. There have been no major (or known) changes to my Windows 10 Pro system. I run Heimdal Thor and Kaspersky antivirus protection and there have been no conflicts running both at any time. I also use Acronis Protection (I know it may seem like overkill but it works). I have turned off each of the above and Firefox still does not open. Firefox runs with no problems on my personal and work laptops. I am CompTia A+ Certified so somewhat knowledgeable (a little knowledge is a dangerous thing!) and have run sfc /scannow with no issues noted. Plus, two Heimdal support reps have logged onto my system, attempted to find a solution, found no issues with my system (Omen 880 even though I don't game). My wife is a dedicated Firefox user and wants it back.

Using Mac OS 12.4 and Firefox 101.0.1. After launching Firefox, a second icon appears in the "recently used" apps section of the Mac OS dock (see attached screen shot). The icon stays there and goes away, and then comes back, and then goes away, etc. This continues on and on until Firefox is closed.

Why is this happening? Never acted this way before the latest updates.
