Within the last 2 weeks or so I get this error repeatedly when accessing secure sites that i used to be able to access with no issues. I use a private VPN and 2 factor authentication. Sometimes stopping the VPN momentarily fixes this, but for other sites, it's no go. This isn't an SSL or SEC error and a search on help forum didn't provide an answer.

Since the last Firefox update about two weeks ago or so, late November 2020, Firefox has been using a lot more memory and crashing my computer quite often. Is there a way to undo the last update to check this problem out? May or may not be tied to embedded videos auto running.

I keep getting freezes, slow downs, sometimes a warning that a page is slow to respond. I'm running FF 83.0. I have the following add-ons: - AdBlock - Colorful Tabs - Hover Zoom - Scroll Zoom - Search by Image.

I'm guessing one of the add-ons is causing the problem, but don't know which one. I've done the restart firefox to stop freezes multiple times. Still happens. Any ideas?

Wish there was an email to contact support but I guess this is the only option.

Anyway, as the title states I have a random "invisible" window that I can't get rid of. I click the 'X' and nothing happens and when I close/reopen Firefox it's still there.

Anyone else had this or know of a way to fix it? (Preferably without having to reinstall)

I can no longer open Firefox. I get the following message:

"Entry point not found. The procedure entry point PK11 - FindEncodedCertInSlot could not be located in the dynamic link library. C:\Program Files(X86) Mozilla Firefox\xul.dll"

Then there's another message "Firefox couldn't load XPCOM"

How do I fix the problem?

MacBook Pro, Mojave 10.14.3; Recently updated Firefox to 83.0, and now my fonts on other sites are messed up (particularly Yahoo mail; See screen shot). I've tried re-starting with add-ons disabled and it does fix the problem, but I need my add-ons enabled. I also tried a Firefox refresh, but still does not fix the problem. I've also tried checking and unchecking the box "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above," in Firefox preferences, but that doesn't help either. Hopefully someone has figured out how to fix this?

TIA - Beth

About a year ago Firefox began crashing upon close every time, on all of my 3 PC computers. I update Firefox to every new release, but the problem has not gone away. Sometimes after the crash if I try to open Firefox I get a message saying, approximately, "firefox is open but is not responding. Close firefox to continue. When I click the "close" button, a new instance of Firefox appears)

The crash announcement window gives me the option of reporting the problem accompanied by a diagnostic database, which I have done frequently over the past year, but nothing seems to change.

Anyone have any idea what this is all about?

I have no problems with keyboard entries with any other win 10 application or with Firefox web page data entry. The keyboard only works sporadically in the Firefox "Save As" window. Tried safe mode and resetting with no changes. I can cut and paste from another application, like wordpad, just can't use the alpha-numeric keys.

New laptop startup. Installed Firefox (has edge) and now in Firefox it will not play videos. Tried Youtube and just get a spinning wheel. Tried videos on other websites and get the same issue. Edge was doing that also and I had to change a setting in Edge. I tried that on Firefox following a web search for "videos won't play using Firefox" but have had no success.
