Mozila does not save new (changed) passwords. I change the password on the site, she offers to replace the existing one, I agree and save, and she asks this several times in a row, but when entering the site, the form is filled with old data! Perhaps this is some option that I accidentally enabled? Still installed "Spy bot& Destroy", but there were no problems with it before. But I turned on the control of profiles there (I will attach a picture). Maybe he does not allow changing saved passwords? Although I kind of turned off the control of cookies in it. I just got into the settings of Mozila and Spy in the same day and after that various problems with the browser started. Checked for viruses several times, clean.

Whenever I navigate to a new webpage or open a site in a new tab, the title bar for that page appears and obscures the menu bar (I had to look it up to define "menu bar" as the "file-edit-view etc. bar" and "title bar" as the bar that shows the title of the topmost tab or window in full). In order to get the title bar to go away, I have to flick the cursor to the top of the page and basically roll over it. But it doesn't stay gone. The title bar comes back with each page or tab I visit. The need to constantly tell it to go away is really making browsing troublesome. It started with the most recent update (86.0.1, 32-bit). I already have the title bar turned off in customization. I want to be able to hover over a tab to see a full title, but have that pesky title bar gone completely (which is what is supposed to happen when you uncheck it in customization). Any help greatly appreciated.

I first noticed this problem when I would click on a link from an email from Rolling Stone magazine it goes to a blank page and the refresh icon is grayed out. I can use Copy Link Location from my email and paste it into Chrome or Edge web browsers and it works fine. I can copy from the blank screen address bar and paste into Chrome or Edge and it also works fine. Today I tried typing rollingstone.com into the address bar and got the same blank page with the refresh icon grayed out. I've not noticed this problem with any other website, just the Rolling Stone site. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

How can I trigger Firefox to check for updates via a command? We have FF installed on users' computers, but some users never use it. I would like to be able to trigger the FF updater to check for updates on a regular schedule. If FF is being used, then it would alert the user of the need to restart as usual. If not, then it will just update itself.

This would be for both Windows and Mac

Hi. I have a (supposedly) rather specific question (or request if you will) concerning the urlbar, search results, and any about:config settings, custom css, add-on or whatever else may get me there. (maybe skip to last paragraph)

I've configured my FF, so that anything I enter in the urlbar opens a new tab, I've also set the urlbar drop-down results to include everything they can (to my knowledge), bookmarks, tabs, history, search results. That's how I like it to be, basically. What I don't like so much is that when I enter something that *I* know is not going to be a web search on my part, I don't want the urlbar to automatically add corresponding search results to the top of the drop-down list. Not so much because they're actually there, but because most times it takes about 3-5 seconds for them to appear in the list, so (from unwanted experience) I now wait until the search results appear and the list is "finished" before I click on anything in it (lest I may click the wrong entry, which messes things up, the history, potentially my tabs (depending on what I may accidentally click), and tiny bits of my time and nerves.)

Results from bookmarks, history and tabs are almost instantaneous, so they shouldn't be the problem (as long as digging through the history doesn't stall web searches in some way).

I don't want to put the separate searchbar back on the toolbar. The keyboard shortcut Ctrl+K is now specifically for initiating a search with the default search engine, which makes me think there should be a more apparent reason for the distinction between Ctrl+L and Ctrl+K in matters of "entering stuff in the urlbar" and "actually wanting to search from the urlbar". (or megabar or what it's called)

I'm looking for a way to have search results still available through the drop-down list of the urlbar, but only when I actually want to search for something by using search engine shortcuts (including Ctrl+K). Basically, a combination of the separate searchbar (except it's addressed via shortcuts), and the urlbar as it is now (except without automatic web search results). Any ideas? (and thanks for reading my mess in case you did that)

Hello My name is Jutta and I am working as a consultant. I have different certificates installed on my computer and in the Firefox. I want to choose each time which certificate to use, but the browser is always automatically starting with the last used certificate and I don´t know how to change that. Even closing Firefox and starting again does not help. So I have to use Edge to work with certificates, which I don´t like too much. Any idea how to change that? Thank you for your help Jutta

I use 2 laptops and an internetprovider. The provider give me 2 adres for communication. one is ABC74 and the other is ABC74- quest. On the Acer with Firefox 66.0 can I use both adres ( ABC74 an ABC74-Quest ) On the Lenovo with Firefox 86.0 is only the ABC74-quest available. On that computer Firefox shows me that there is the connection with ABC74 but get the warning that Firefox can not made a connection.

The rest of the homecomputers ( Mac with Safari and Windows 7 and 10 with EXplorer ) has not that particular problem.

Hello, I was wondering if anyone else was having issues with Firefox downloading files? I couldn't download a file so, I went through all the steps to troubleshoot what was happening, after it all I decided it was probably best to reinstall firefox and see if that works. It didn't so, I started to write for help on here. When I went to take a screenshot of the download dialog, I noticed the "OK" button changed to clickable.

So, I tried it again with other buttons and it seems that's the only way I can get the button to stop being greyed out (previously, it was after a second it would automatically do it).

It's a little annoying having to press a key everytime I want to download something so, I was wondering if there was something I could do to get the previous behaviour (the automatic change after a few seconds). In the meantime I guess I just have to keep pressing some key....

Normally, I am able to select any number of things (text from web pages, URLs, etc) and copy them to other other applications, but occasionally the ability to copy to the system clipboard seems to stop working, in that I am unable to copy to other applications, and my system clipboard indicator shows no activity. Restarting Firefox is the only way I've found to resolve this behavior. (This is annoying because it doesn't seem to remember my window positions, but that's probably another issue.)

However, within Firefox (between tabs, tabs to controls, etc), the clipboard continues to work fine. I can also continue to paste to Firefox from other applications.

I'm running Gnome/Mutter/Wayland (Fedora 33). Any ideas what could be causing this?

Hi all, hoping someone can help with this very specific issue...

The question: Is there any way to satisfy Firefox's third party routing so that a secondary unattached domain can be redirected to a subfolder of another domain?

The explanation of the issue: A client of mine has a site built on Wix, with a domain held by GoDaddy. The domain was on GoDaddy servers in order to redirect to a specific page on the Wix site instead of the home page (Wix does not support this option using its own DNS servers).

They noticed that *only* when using Firefox on Windows 10 was there a security error code that blocked access to the site, giving the following message:

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.minditrimblementoring.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Learn more…

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for www.minditrimblementoring.com. The certificate is only valid for the following names: shortener.secureserver.net, www.shortener.secureserver.net Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN View Certificate

--

This was not able to be replicated on the same system on Chrome, Edge, or iPhone Safari browsers. They had to click "Advanced" and then "Accept the Risk and Continue"

There is no error message for the actual root domain of the website. From what I understand, Firefox reroutes the DNS to a partner service for security (in this case shortener.secureserver.net), which is not happy with the redirect setup.

For now, I have switched over to Wix servers so that no one trying to access the site receives security warnings.

The client would like to retain the ability to redirect to these to specific pages on the site, but they are concerned about people being turned away from getting a big ol' security risk warning if they are using Firefox.

So here's my question again (so you don't have to scroll back up): Is there any way to satisfy Firefox's third party routing so that a secondary unattached domain can be redirected to a subfolder of another domain?

Thank you for any insight - this is *not* my realm, as I help people with branding and design work and am not a developer / coder.

I cannot logon to my spectrum email account if I am using Firefox. Spectrum told me to use another browser. Can you fix Firefox so I can use it. I have been using it with Charter who is now Spectrum for years and years. Overnight Charter changed the name to Spectrum and now I cannot logon unless I use Microsoft Edge. I called Spectrum and they said that Firefox is an awful browser and to use Microsoft Edge. I love Firefox and hate Microsoft Edge.
