I'm trying to use a website at blocktogether.org, and get the connection untrusted error because it says the certificate issuer is unknown. Attached is an image of the cert details. A quick google search turned up some comments that Startcom may have been being looked at for possible removal from the known CAs list due to something related to the heartbleed bug and their cert revocation policies, but I wasn't able to find anything definitive.

I'm using Firefox 39.0 on Windows 7/64 with up-to-date microsoft patches.

Hello. I have a separate account (email) for the new sync running the current Firefox 39. Some of my old bookmarks did not get restored when I upgraded, and I wish to get them from the old sync account. Any help would be very much appreciated!

I have tried renaming my profile and reinstalling Firefox 27.0, but Firefox still automatically syncs to the New sync. (Too clever for me). What is the best version of Firefox to use to get to the old sync, and is there special folder I need to delete/rename? (Please note that this endeavor is all following a HD crash and MS OneDrive losing my offsite back-ups, so I have **no prior local files** available for the Firefox import and backup, restore, history). So looking strictly to access my old sync account/profile. Thank you for any thoghts you can share!

The pinterest button was "disabled by the administrator" according to your add-on page. Since I am the only one using this PC and I did not disable it, how can I reinstall it? Several other add-ons have disappeared as well, so I think they are probably also disabled.

Thanks for any assistance.

When I zoom in on a web page to get it to a comfortably viewable size, the zoom holds as long as Firefox is running. But if I shut Firefox down and then restart it, the zoom has reset to the default condition. It holds the zoom settings fine in Windows 8.1. Don't know whether this is a Windows 10 fault or a situation Firefox will have to deal with when the released version of new Windows starts getting installed on the 29th.

I'm using Firefox 39 on Windows 8 on a laptop. When I have my window open to full screen, the back arrow has a little extra maroon colored "leg." If I make the window smaller, the correct graphic appears, but in full screen, it looks weird. Closing the program and reopening doesn't solve the issue nor does magnifying the screen. See screen shot.

My Flash plugin shows as outdated and blocked, despite having the latest flashplugin package installed. I went to the plugincheck page to update it, bit it never stops checking/loading (circular loading animation).

I do NOT have "Java Deployment Toolkit" plugin. I have "Java(TM) Plug-In 11.45.2", which I tried to set to never activate but it didn't fix anything.

Arhc Linux + KDE

Everything up to date, including Firefox, Flash and Java.
