The DLA page worked on Friday, 5/17. It's not just me, others in our company have the same problem. Same problem with IE. Also, Firefox updated itself today before I tried to access the DLA page. Hope some of that info helps. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

When I try to connect I get this DLA page I get the quoted text below. I cannot find any way to add it as an exception. I can get to the DLA main page, but if I try to get to the other page, it is once again blocked.

"Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

Problems with Firefox 60.0.1 on Windows 10 1803

I recently updated Windows 10 to 1803. At the time, I had Firefox 59 and was having some issues with certain sites. I updated Firefox to 60.0.1, but the issues remain.

Every time I open Firefox, it asks me if I want to make it my default browser, even though it already is. I found another potential solution to this, which I will do later.

The default Mozilla Firefox Start Page won't load. I just get a message that access was denied, and "The file at about:home is not readable."

When I go to access Google Drive, the page will not load or function properly. This was never an issue before.

Also, when I go to LinkedIn, the page will not load completely. I am sure there are other sites having this same issue.

Arnaque de RockNrollbox qui utilise l'identité de Mozilla pour avancer masqué et obtenir des abonnements en ne se révélant qu'une fois le paiement effectué

ils envoient une enquête de satisfaction et d'utilisation au nom de Mozilla et en remerciement de la réponse proposent un smartphone samsung à pris cassé. une fois la somme réglée ils envoient un courriel de confirmation en révélant seulement alors leur identité. Puis ils s'empressent de vous coller un abonnement de 74 € en prélevant via votre CB sans redemander votre autorisation et en ne tenant pas compte du délai de rétractation de la loi française. Evidemment ils ne font aucun difficulté pour annuler votre abonnement mais sans remboursement des 74€. il est clair que si leur identité avait été clairement affichée dès le départ je n'aurais absolument pas été intéressé. ils arnaquent donc le client et nuisent à l'image de Firefox mozilla.

Since the update Top Sites has not been showing up when I open a new tab. I did what other users have done (Uninstalling and installing Firefox) but that doesn't work. How do I fix this? All settings are accurate, there is nowhere in the settings to choose what shows up in a new tab.

I was using Firefox while my PC crashed. So I had to force-restart it. After I reopened Firefox, I was asked to reconnect to my Firefox account to sync it. When I typed my password (which I was 10000% sure that it is correct), it said that it is wrong. So I reset it. After I connected to the account, I was surprised that all my saved passwords in my Firefox account disappeared. My bookmarks were there, nothing happened to them. Also, synchronizing Logins was checked in the sync settings, so I really didn't find any explanation for that!

Is Firefox 60 incompatible with VideoDownloadHelper 7.3 now for some reason?? It continuously refuses to function, and continuosly redirects me to get a companion app. that i already have, every time I try to use it to cvapture a video file, it does not do so, and sends me back to the companion app. page. I don't understand how many times it wants me to add the companion app., but I am starting to wonder if it is either broken, or that Firefox has decided, once again, to make a online video downloader incompatible with their browser?? So, can you use VideoDownloadHelper with Firefox now, or do I need to find an alternative, and wait for you to make that incompatible?? Please clarify, and thanks in advance!!

Hello, I want to prevent third parties accessibility services to enter my browser. But the way this checkboix is formulated confuses me. If I check the box 'prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser' is it then enabled or disabled? What are the accessibility services here? I read all the instructions but still find it a confusing sentence to check or uncheck?

Should I read the sentence as "prevent Firefox Accessibility Service from accessing your browser'? Or should I read it as "prevent any type of physical impairment assistive software from accessing your browser?

Hope you could help me with this. And if so it could be nice to make this sentence a bit clearer. Or maybe I'm just a bit confused and you should just leave it like this;)

Best,

Art

I am using Firefox 60.0.1. Today, I was unable to get to my banking information using Firefox. I could using Internet Explorer and I don't want to do that. I am also using Windows 7 since windows 10 crashes my computer. On my banking site, I can type in my login information and then I got to the redirection screen (Firefox has prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page and below it is says please wait and there is an allow button). I click allow and I get the authorization stuff and then it stops. It says it gets to a welcome screen but the page is just white.

Any idea what is going on? I looked at the FAQs that came up but I didn't know what they were saying. I really don't want to use IE 11 for my banking.

I right click a page to bookmark Click on the star (like I used to) The folder shows "other bookmarks" and no way out to the multitude of other folders. Choose takes me back on the same loop and no way up the tree. This happened immediately I was stupid enough to allow the latest up date so it is definitely caused by a bad update (again). The last time I updated the bookmarks simply vanished. Maybe there is a connection. Is this all part on getting compatible with mobile phones minute screens? It is a real step backwards again. I wish I could just go back to the last version that worked fine.
