When I open my router in a browser, I get the insecure-connection warning before the site connects. I want to get rid of that warning for the router; after all, it's internal to my network, and I browse through a private VPN. I know how to get rid of the insecure-connection warning for all sites, through about:config, but I don't know how to teach the browser that this particular site (192.168.1.1) is secure.

Can someone teach me (a very difficult task) how to teach the browser (probably a very simple task) about that one site? Thanks very much.

Trying to access my regular online banking site with Firefox 63 and when I try signing in like I normally do I get a redirect to the attached tab.

I have cleared my cache and cookies to no avail. I have tried logging in with IE and all works fine.

What am I missing here?

I was running Firefox beta and suddenly the minimized pages would not restore to their previous sizes. I uninstalled Firefox and installed the new version from the web site. All bookmarks, history and passwords were updated to the new install, however nothing appears on the tab, not ever the Firefox home page and none of my bookmarks work. There is simply no link. I am running Windows 10 (32 bit) and have a vpn. I am using Chrome to contact you, but would like to go back to firefox asap. I use my computer for work, and cannot be without it.

I turned off autoplay in about:config but after today's update to 63.0 all videos are autoplaying. Has Firefox been paid by advertisers to force autoplay videos down our throat no matter what? Why is this browser so awful now?

When I uninstall FF and then reinstall the latest FF 63.0 on the latest Windows 10 Pro, I notice it is added to Control Panel -> Apps -> Apps & Features, but it is NOT listed as a choice under Apps-> Default Apps -> Web Browser or under Default Apps -> Set defaults by app or Default Apps -> Choose default apps by protocol or Default Apps -> Choose default apps by file type. As a result, I am unable to set FF as the default browser.

The search boxes in the inspector window window returns no results whenever I try to search for specific key-value pairs like: role="main".

I can only get results for main or role. Is there a search string parameter/syntax reference anywhere? I've searched high and low, but articles/references found in the documentation is VERY basic.

Thanks

Some web pages like LinkedIn for example show a dark solid red background with black lettering.

I tried installing a theme and changing the settings in Firefox.

Opening the same pages in Chrome, they are normal and not red.

Could not find any articles on this other than ones pointing to themes.

Thanks,

Closed tabs before closing Firefox come back when the session is restored

I'm using Firefox ESR version and recently migrated from old ESR to 60 series ESR. (60.3.0esr, 64bit version) Since then, tabs closed before closing Firefox keep coming back when I restart Firefox and the previous session is restored. I'm using Firefox's standard "Restore previous session" function.

Only way to eliminate these zombie tabs is to restart Firefox in Safe Mode, close those tabs and restart in regular mode again. However, manually disabling all add-ons didn't changed the situation. Also, I already tried to rebuild my profile, but didn't work as well.

I found out that this only but always happens when I close any "about:*" or "moz-extension" tab. When I close any of those configuration-tab, that configuration-tab and other regular tabs already opened at that moment come back even I close them before restarting Firefox. Tabs newly opened "after" I open those configuration-tab won't meet this symptom.

Example: Start with Tab A, Tab B

-> Open new Tab "about:preferences" and then Open new Tab C

Tab A, Tab B, Tab "about:preferences", Tab C

-> Close Tab "about:preferences" first, then Close Tab B and C

Tab A

-> Restart Firefox and restore previous session

Tab A, Tab B, Tab "about:preferences" (Tab B and Tab "about:preferences" irregularly come back, but not Tab C since it's opened after opening "about:preferences" Tab)

In some sites, I can't use arrow keys or pgup pgdown to scroll or f5 to refresh, which is very annoying. Disabling javascript does make the keys work again but breaks the sites. Is there a way to block the javascript thing that mess with the keys or force the browser standard key behaviour?

I am facing a issue recently in firefox that I cannot see the page contents correctly. Couple of examples : - when I open youtube.com, dont see the video thumbnail images. I see blank there. I can see the video description though. But when I click on a video link, it plays okay. - Some webpages are not rendering correctly even when there is no video.

I tried following, without success - - uninstalled and re-installed firefox - opened firefox in safe mode.

I dont have any extension. I have shockwave plugin installed. And the OS is Windows 10

I just installed Firefox 63.0 and I got the "warn when multiple tabs open on close" option so I checked it. The warning does no work and the option is gone. I've looked around the about:config setting, but I can't make hide nor hair of them. Any ideas??? To add to the confusion, if I have 2 Firefox windows open, the warning will work on 1 of them but not the other.
