Twitter won't open on my browser. I've made a clean profile and tried it on there and it's worked, but i'd like to continue using this profile. I can't access the site at all, almost like the browser's denying me access. It'll try to load but it'll stop loading and keep me on the same url.

I began receiving the following message about 3 days ago - PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR. As I was browsing the forum I came across a suggestion to disable add-ons and restart Firefox in safe mode. When I did that I could now connect to the website I wanted. I then re-stared Firefox multiple times disabling the Add-ons one at a time.

In my case the culprit is "DuckDuckGo" priviacy and security add-on. When I disabled that and re-started Firefox I was able to connect. WhoYah!!!

Hello Firefox community,

I have a website that is designed by GoDaddy which has sections blocked which I'm assuming is through a security feature in Firefox. If I use Chrome everything is fine, visible and functional. Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue outside of switching browsers? Thanks!

Reading the several comments on this subject has not led to a solution. The Firefox Setup 81 and Installer are sitting in the downloads file, but when I click either "Open" or "Run as Administrator" I get a Windows "For security and performance Windows 10 in S mode...." followed by two options "Learn more" or "Switch out of S mode". When I choose the latter the "Switch out of S mode" page arrives. Now what? Thanks.

Hi,

Je n'ai pas trouvé dans About:Config une option pour revenir au fonctionnement précédent avec les options fermer les onglets Fermer les onglets directement accessibles comme c'est toujours le cas dans Chrome (Voir PJ).

J'utilise beaucoup ces options et je déplore d'avoir à passer par un menu intermédiaire.

OK, so this Firefox feature worked fine on my "old" and beloved Win7 machine. I finally broke down and upgraded to a new Surface Win10 Pro machine running Firefox 81.0.1 , transferred all my old Firefox settings and saved logins, but now Firefox will not save any new logins and passwords as it did on my beloved Win7 "boat anchor."

I read through the Firefox help section and all I could find is some talk about Trend Micro security software blocking this Firefox feature. I DO NOT HAVE TREND MICRO on this new machine.

The only security software I have running is Malwarebytes 4.2.1 and of course the ever-present Microsoft Security.

So how do I get back my beloved Firefox feature: "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites?"

HELP and thanks!

The quick version of my question: Why does my Yahoo email readily open on most devices without prompting for the Primary Password? I'm not particularly tech savvy but I've looked and I haven't created any exceptions that would allow opening my email to be bypassed from the PP. Longer version: I use MF as my preferred browser and I have many websites bookmarked to which my passwords are autofilled. I work from home but I am my replacement at her office location. I was alarmed to find that when I brought up an MF browser on desktops at the office location, there were my bookmarks along with the ability for anyone to effortlessly login to a given website since the passwords were saved. to remedy, I tuned off Sync, but that didn't seem to solve the problem as my bookmarks were still exactly and easily accessible. Then I created a Primary Password on the two desktops at the remote office location, as well as several devices in my home. The puzzle is that Yahoo opens with no problem when I select that bookmark. I don't get prompted for the PP until I open another browser page. Also of concern: when I select a password protected bookmark, I can manually enter my login and see my sensitive account information if I just keep clicking on Cancel when the PP prompt appears. Is that because knowing the password "overwrites" the security of the PP?
