I have checked her browser against mine (downloaded latest version of the browser from the site last week, after a total hard drive replacement) and the settings seem the same on ll side menu items. She is getting this notice virtually every time she opens a browser page or visits a site.

Firefox is her default browser. Her laptop is running Windows 7.

She is getting extremely upset over this.

There a posts about unchecking the Avast HTTPS Scanning setting to 'fix' some problem Websites with TLS 1.3.

This was fixed back on Jun 28th with an Avast Virus Definition Update. (Check your Avast settings to make sure you are receiving Virus Definition Updates automatically.) Later, a Jul 4th Avast Virus Definition Update brought the problem back, but was quickly fixed, and retained the same Virus Definition Update name, 180704-2 back on Jul 4th.

If you still have a secure Website/Certificate problem, it can be quickly checked by temporarily turning OFF your Anti-Virus Shields or disabling your Security Extension Add-ons to see if any of these are the problem.

I can only get on to websites with Firfox by using the top sites icons on the front page. I can't access them from using search as a white sort of pop up appears on the screen with a circle running round and I can't get rid of it. This has just happened since the last update and I have tried every setting I can find to see if I can resolve this with now success.

I have been using Firefox for many years, now I have to use other browsers which I hate. I just want this resolved.

The about:config trick doesn't work on Drudge. Chrome has an add-on that blocks autorefresh, but it doesn't work on Drudge, either. Apparently Drudge is hell-bent on autorefreshing his page every thirty seconds whether you like it or not. Has anyone figured out how to make Drudge stop autorefreshing? I used to use NoScript, but since Quantum, NoScript has been transformed into a monstrosity I can't make head or tail of.

I am having a issue when I watch any kind of flash player video (Twitch/youtube/other stuff) on mozilla firefox.

https://i.imgur.com/P9HFXSk.jpg

As you can see on the picture there are stripes or color differences that look like stripes in the picture. I only have this problem with mozilla video viewing and not when I use google chrome to watch youtube etc or watch through a media player like VLC. The stripes disappear if i pause the video otherwise they are always there during the video.

I have tried turning on and off hardware acceleration.

Well, as written above. I'm using these shortcuts quite often to select words when typing and editing. Suddenly it stopped working. I'm on FF 61.0.2.

In some cases it works, in some not. Right here it works, for example. On Github doesn't.

Just for the record FF Developer Edition 62.0b20 works fine.

Thanks

[Locked as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1223774. Please follow up there, thanks.]

For some reason when I search using the address bar, or the search box in top right of the screen. Both bring back google.com results. The only way I can search with google.co.uk is going to my hompage and searching from there.

This seems to be quite a new thing, but it's really annoying. Does anyone know a way to change back to google.co.uk?

Also is there a way to get your homepage to open, everytime you open a new tab?

Thanks
