When I try to enter a secure website, this message pops up asking me for a password: "Please enter the master password for the FIPS 140 Cryptographic, Key and". None of my passwords work.

In the advanced encryption tab, I have both "Use SSl 3.0" and "Use TLS 1.0" checked.

When I first start Firefox all is fine, the history is there and working, all the saved user/pass is there but after awhile it's like firefox loses it's memory and I need to restart the browser to get it all up and running again. Is it a config I need to do in about:config or what?

This didn't happen when I was using Windows 7 and FF, but now under Ubuntu 10.04 it happens all the day.

This happened

A few times a week

Running Firefox 3.6.4 on KDE 3.5 on openSUSE Linux 11.0, running Adobe AIR TweetDeck v0.33.4. When I click on a shortened URL link in TweetDeck, such as to go to a YouTube video link, Firefox attempts to open the link from the cache, not go directly to the Web page. Result is something like: file:///var/tmp/kdecache-rhack/krun/30908.0.bBUGz0. So I get the YouTube or other Web page from the cache, not from the Web site. I'm not entirely sure if this a Firefox bug or a TweetDeck bug.

This happened

Not sure how often

When I add to my bookmarks in Firefox 3.6.3, the name of the page is shown as is an individual icon unique to the particular page. However, when I close a Firefox session and then open a new one, I find that the unique icons have all been replaced by generic icons, the same for all bookmarked pages. When I click on the page, the unique icon returns only to disappear when I close the Firefox session. At times it is quicker for me to identify a page in the list by icon than by reading all the page names that can be annoying at times. I don't ever recall using a browser that did not have this feature. How do I enable this? I am using ubuntu amd 10.04 if it makes any difference.

I have a SSL web-server xxx.yyy with a valid certificate that is signed by a CA known to Firefox.

When I access "https://xxx.yyy" everything is fine. When I access "https://xxx.yyy/some_page", I get the "This Connection is Untrusted" dialog, which tells me:

Technical Details xxx.yyy uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for @subject_cn@ (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

When I then try to add an exception, after some seconds it tells me: "Valid certificate: This site provides valid, certified identification. There is no need to add an exception".  And the "Confirm Security Exception" button stays greyed out.
Now I am stuck .... :-(

Thanks in advance

I have located this gentleman.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/user/5341229/

I do not have a moz account so I figured I would drop this here and hopefully it will find its way to someone wielding Teh Mighty B& Hammerz.

Someone should add a lil' flag to report spam. Hopefully anonymously for people like me who don't have an account, or people also like myself that may be a bit to lazy to log in to report spam. A lil' flag that I can just check off would be great.

Troubleshooting information

Also fix this because it is really fucking annoying to type a code in a million times and still get a generic canned message.

>You have mistyped the anti-bot verification code; please >try again.

This better go through this time because I am NOT filling in the CAPTCHA another time.
