SSL problem with Firefox; no problem with Safari or Chrome

I have a website development system with SSL enabled for testing. The certificate is self-signed but expired. I added a new self-signed certificate. When I load a development website, Firefox issues a Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead. When I click Advanced, the error is SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN, with additional information that the certificate has expired. Clicking Accept Risk and Continue loads an ISP website with network details of attached devices. I have repeatedly cleared Firefox cached and saved data by clearing recent history, followed by clearing everything for all the check boxes on the page. I have examined the certificates in the security settings, view certificates. The expired certificate is listed. After deleting the expired certificate from the list, and loading the development website again, results in the same problem all over again.

I have no problem with Safari or Chrome browsers, only Firefox. Firefox 76.0.1, Mac OS 10.14.6. MAMP based development system, version 5.7 using Apache.

How can I delete the expired certificate so it stays deleted, and make Firefox use the new certificate?

Currently when dragging and dropping a bookmark (or folder) in the Library holding the Option key causes a plus badge to appear, and a curved arrow badge appears while holding the Option+Command key.

Hi,

If a website is dual-stacked, Firefox will first try to connect over IPv6 and fallback to IPv4 if it fails. However, Firefox never tries again to use IPv6 if it as fails once. Sometimes this leads to connection error if the connection is intermittent (so IPv6 will fails at the time of the request, but it’s not specific to IPv6, and Firefox will try over IPv4) and if IPv4 is broken at all (e.g. because IPv6 works so nobody notices it). So when the connection comes back, Firefox will be stuck to IPv4 and the site won’t display even if works with IPv6. Even Ctrl-Shift-R doesn’t clear the connection cache.

After the last update several days ago, I am not able to download yahoo BASIC (that I prefer) attachments. The newer yahoo works fine, yet I do not like it!. Therefore I use basic more then 30 years. I cleared history, cashe, did a MFF safe restart, and all issues I could find online. If I try downloading my mail attachements with IExplorer - it works nice and easy, yet, not with MFF.

What did the MFF update (automatic) change in the settings?!

Hi

I would like to know how to remove this from Firefox please.

It began showing up about 10 days ago. I have not installed any new programs, or any new games (I am a gamer) because I have been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Anytime I click a link in an email, I use gmail, or try to move from a link in one tab to another, it pops up and I have to click trust or allow to get the page to load.

It's just oh so slightly annoying.

Thanks to anyone who can offer any help. I will be eternally grateful and will if you like add you to my great person list.

That, a mask, and some obscene amount of whatever currency you use will get you a latte or whatever it is they serve at Starbucks. Can't speak their language, as I've never been to one.

help PLEASE

A website had a popup window for a tech support chat session and FF displayed its selection for me to select how to handle the popup. I positioned my cursor on the top selection and while i was pressing the left-click, the screen shifted and the bottom selection was selected instead of my choice of "Allow popup windows for ...."

Aside from being really pissed off right now for it was a matter of getting a chat window that i can not presently access, would someone be so kind as to tell me how to reverse the damages of clicking on the wrong selection? Where are these selections stored so that i might reverse it?

I can log in, then after some time on the browser in and out of a few web pages, I notice I am not logged in anymore. I must have been disconnected, I can never figure out why. And I cannot use my Bitwarden to automatically log in, it takes a while and it happens many times an evening. I have tried isolating and selecting the cookies. That does not seem to help.

When opening Firefox and it's restoring tabs from the previous session, it loads different tabs compared to how I left them. How to fix this?

Imagine the following scenario: 1. I go to a search engine and look for "dogs". 2. From the result page I click on a link to a dog page. 3. I close the browser. 4. I open the browser again later. 5. The tab that is supposed to be the restored dog page is the dog result page of the search engine instead.

It seems like firefox sometimes isn't saving the actually last page but instead some of the previous ones.

I am using Firefox 76.0.1 with addons uMatrix, uBlock, OneTab

Thanks for the help, cheers

My browsing behaviour involves opening a handful of pages many times a day. So, I start to type the address & the autofill feature completes the url, then I press enter. But, there is a slight inconvenience in FF's autofill feature. In Firefox, it doesn't show the full url, only the homepage of that domain and not any additional paths. In Chrome, it shows the full url along with paths. See the images for example.. 10.254.254.4/0/up is my ISP's login page, so I open it many times. But, I have never opened the 10.254.254.4 ; there is nothing there. Yet, typing '10' shows '10.254.254.4' as first result in FF & '10.254.254.4/0/up' in Chrome.

How do I customize Firefox that it shows the full address instead of only the homepage?

Hi,

I use a 3x8 grid of top sites as my home page / new tab page. However, I usually split windows to half of the screen size, and when doing that the grid becomes 3x6 and some sites simply disappear!

Why not simply reshape the grid by adding extra rows? It would seem the most logical design choice, but I cannot find any setting or extension to do it.

Also, I feel like the tiles should be resizable since they look a bit small in high-resolution screens, but that's a different topic.

I don't know if this is the right place to post this, if it is not then please tell me where I should do it.

Hi, I use the Selection Context Search extension and had a lot of custom search providers defined for it. It's some hours that I synced my Firefox on PC with the first-used Firefox Developer on same PC. Both are Portable versions from portableapps.com. I also set the services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state = true to sync toolbar customizations.

Now, I found out all my custom search providers are gone, neither exists on Firefox nor Firefox Dev. Unfortunately I wasn't yet able to find an exported setting file for my extension.

Is it possible to somehow recover settings of this specific extension from profile or somewhere?

Thanks

Just wondering if anyone else is having the same issues, every so often, when I open a new tab and enter a website name and hit enter the tab closes and returns me to the main tab that I had open. It never happens twice in a row and is often unpredictable when it happens. Unsure if it is a bug or just some setting that might be causing it? I am using an up-to-date browser in a windows 10 environment. Thanks for any comments or suggestions.
