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.

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.

I downloaded my activity from Google/Youtube, which has all my LIKED videos stored as a .json file, but I'm not able to restore it into Firefox's bookmarks. I backed up my current bookmarks and noticed that it created a .json file. Why would it do that? Aren't the files supposed to be .jsonlz4 instead?
