I am trying to connect AWS public IP in firefox web page, i am getting this error.

Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at x.xx.xxx.xxx.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web

Background: I just had to rebuild my Linux system partition from backup.

After doing this I discovered that although most websites behave perfectly with Firefox, there is one website which now never appears in the history though I have visited the pages with no problem.

This is a problem because I use the change in color of links to the website to keep track of which pages I have visited. I have looked to see if Firefox has a list of sites which are not tracked but have been unable to find it.

PS, after the restore all my old history was restored including visits to the website which is now causing a problem.

Some websites report that I have an old outdated version of firefox. But this is not true. I always use the latest version in 64bit under Windows 7. One of these websites says I use Firefox 57.

I cannot get access to these sites. What may be the reason? I read this could be an outdated version of wordpress that these websites are using.

When I click on "show details" below, it also reports Firefox 57 but it is 76.0.1. What's wrong?

I just upgaded to the latest version of firefox, and now all the dropdown menus of the extensions like noscript, abp, greasemonkey, just show a tiny white area of say 2x1 cm and no real contents. Of course the first advise is to start in safemode, I did, but then of course non of the extensions show up, exiting safemode restores the problem. One other advise was to unchek recommended performance settings, I did. nothing changed (not after a restart) And one other thing I checked was layers.acceleration.disabled which is set to true layers.acceleration.force-enabled is set to false

so, I don't know what else to do. Does any of you guys have more suggestions?

Dear all,

I cannot install any add-on as Firefox, provides me (instead "+ Add to Firefox") a button:

"Only with Firefox - Get Firefox Now" (see attached image).

I have Firefox version 80.0.1 (64-bit) installed.

Any idea how to get this sorted out? Would de- and re-installation of Firefox work?

Best!

Hi, using Mac Sierra 10.13.5 on a power book.

I have tried up grading to the latest version of firefox before, but it then does not allow me to open facebook, and other web pages I use regularly?

I have tried suggestions, going into security settings etc, but only some of my pages saved in book marks ( side bar ) open?

I need to up grade, but do not want to loose these pages, and have to spend hours trying to work it out. I need a straight change over, easy, quick, with no problems.

Windows 10 64bit. Firefox quantum 57.0.4 (54 bit) On some websites only, firefox constantly redownloads the video content. As soon as the video download reaches 100%, it starts redownloading again and again. Does not happen on all websites with video.

I restored an earlier version of Firefox from backup of 2 months ago and that behavior stopped and I could again watch videos.

  • No change in addons or preferences.

I allowed Firefox to update to the latest version again, and the problem returned. Removed all addons: problem persists.

What is different in the latest version of Firefox that would cause that?

Hi There,

We have an issue with any version of Firefox after 57.04. It affects a few dozen of our users. It appears to be specific to our environment, but we need help tracking the source of the issue. The issue in on Windows 10 and Windows 2016 operating systems.

Firefox appears to update successfully, but when we attempt to run it the process appears in task manager using 2.5mb of ram. Nothing else happens. No visible errors, and no windows open. After killing the process we can run the 57.04 installer to revert, which results in a perfectly functional Firefox.

The issue seems to be specific to our environment, but not specific to hardware platform.

We have tried many things: -Various installers and update paths/methods -Safe Mode -Removing addons prior to upgrade -Clean uninstall/install (including deleting firefox profiles) -Disable and uninstalled AV softwares. -Disabled Group Policy Objects.

Please let us know what troubleshooting steps we can take to locate the source of the problem.

Any help is appreciated!

I have taken some screenshots to show what I look at every time I update to a version 57+ I did try updated versions as they became available, in case my problem had been fixed, but it gets so annoying that I roll back again.

The Image upload feature doesn't appear to be working here so I uploaded some screen grabs to Imgur.

Only displaying part of the page: https://i.imgur.com/9gsgekO.png https://i.imgur.com/FfwLP6b.png

Images and other page details disappear: https://i.imgur.com/s7W7Seg.png

Pages are split and do not display in one piece: https://i.imgur.com/l8FPFdF.png

It's not my graphics drivers or anything else, everything is up to date. I roll back to 56.0.2 (32-bit) and this solves the issue. I am having the same problems on two machines running Win7. Cheers, Keith

I have Ubuntu 17.04, and my current FF is 57. I have tried updating several times without success, and now have tried the following:-

  • Downloaded FF66, and from Terminal tried to run the "updater" script, which fails with "./updater: error while loading shared libraries: libmozsqlite3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
  • I tried running the firefox from the same directory, and a FF 57 browser window appears.
  • Looked at software updater, and it showed that FF66 is installed, and when I clicked the "Launch" button, nothing happened.

I have looked for help online without success, and now hope someone will be able to help me get it running. Many thanks,
