Within the last couple days I am not able to open attachments when I am using Firefox which is my primary browser. If I switch over to IE I can open them with no problem. This would indicate to me that something changed, but I have no clue what. Everything else seems to be ok in the use of Firefox.

After updating to Firefox Quantum 62.0, when I launch the browser I get an insecure connection warning....on the mozilla Firefox start page!

Your connection is not secure

The owner of start.mozilla.org has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

Is Firefox trying to prevent me accessing it's own web page???

Help!

I switched over to firefox because I was having trouble with chrome, but some of the keyboard shortcuts are making it nearly unusable for me. Is there a way to disable either all or some of them. I've seen links to add ons that do it, but none of them are compatible with my version of firefox (60.0.2) or they no longer link to anything.

Thanks

I used to right click on a bookmark, then properties, but when the bookmark opens, the properties section is no longer there. I think that is what it was called when the properties box opened. It was an area at the bottom where you could put notes. I make notes on most all of my bookmarks and they are no longer showing. I disabled all my addons, I did a firefox 'refresh', and I tried working in safemode. The proplem still exists. Can anyone help? thanks! Kristi

Valant EMR has recommended/required the use of Firefox as a browser. However, recently, an auto upgrade was made by Firefox, installing the 60 series version. However, this doesn't work for Valant, so when I try to specifically download the 50 series, Firefox downloads the newest version (60). How do I download 50 series on Windows?

I have a new computer and it takes forever to load some websites. I have never had this problem before. I get a little ping pong on the browser tab. Facebook has sometimes taken 3 or more mintues to load but other random sites have too. I seems to be getting better after a couple of months. I have high speed internet from comcast and I checked the speed so that's not the problem. Other browsers don't seem to have the same problem but I don't have any history with them. WHAT IS THIS and what is that little dot that ping pongs?

Under Tools>Options>Privacy and security, Bookmarks under address bar is checked, but It still doesn't work. I have to type the whole thing in. For example, if I want to go to www.google.com, I can just type in 'goo' and the rest would be highlighted in blue, and I can press enter. This stopped working, the rest won't show up highlighted in blue anymore, how can I fix this?

hi, have got jaws 2018, latest update on a toshiba satellite pro 64 bit system c-50-a. now when i use jaws and firefox 61, and when 60 came out, had a few bugs. the freedomscientific engineers could not rectify or reproduce this problem. some times on a certain site http://www.ebroadcast.com.au, jaws links won't come up and have to press 7 or 8 times before it comes up. and if i am on http://www.jw.org and then try to download a mp3, it goes to the desktop. and on http://www.gmail.com, in my spam folder, the first checkbox with the x key, but then have to hit it twice to jump to the next check box and also on http://groups.io, if i try to enter on a link, took me to the desktop. that's why using google chrome. if maybe james the who is the accessibility lead at mozilla to e-mail and try to reproduce the issues. that's why i am using google chrome at the moment. if i download firefox 62, will these issues be fixed. thanks, in australia.
