bold text I continue to receive the following message when I try to access my Yahoo email account:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to guce.yahoo.com. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR

This was occurring for a couple of weeks before the 84.0.1 update and continues now. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. (Screenshot attached)

For month and several versions of Firefox (now running on 84.0.2 64bits), videos on Amazon Prime Video cannot play in 1080p even when video quality in settings clearly indicates the required internet speed is available for 1080p quality (sorry for the french language in the screen-capture but the number of 6.84Go is visible and it is the required speed for 1080p).

I run on Windows 10, I have a download speed of 767Mbps (checked with https://www.speedtest.net) with a maximum of 1000Mbps download connection, I tried on two different laptops, tried with Firefox Nightly (currently 86.0a1 64bits version) and nothing works.

There used to be a trick that worked until about last August : you had to search the title of the movie you wanted to watch in the Amazon Prime Video search-bar, press enter and click on the play icon of the movie. Any other time you clicked on the play icon, only HD was available but with the trick you could still get 1080p. Annoying but working. Now the trick doesn't work, internet is not helpful, although I'm glad (so to speak) to see that I'm not the only one with this issue.

Any help is appreciated, thank you in advance.

Similar to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1257374 NZ cell phone numbers have 8 to 10 digits (no country code, first two digits are 02). Firefox only accepts 10 digits for some crazy reason. Such a stupid restriction: Just accept any number, including country code. My number has 9 digits. What do I do now?

The justification "we do it because it was the easiest to implement w/o trying to iterate through the list of countries to find a possible match. It was the easiest path forward to getting the feature shipped." in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1468338 is weak at best.

I have FF on Linux laptop and connected to my FF account to sync. All works fine. However after closing down laptop, restarting, open FF I do not auto reconnect to FF account and sync. What settings do I need so that I auto sync when opening FF? I DO NOT want FF to save site passwords i.e. BBC, TED, etc.

This is being sent / monitored from a Windows 10 computer and not the Linux laptop

Not sure if part of this posted as had an internet issue previously that took some time to resolve.

Hello. I am the user of Firefox browser. My main browser is firefox for recent years. I've been using it very well. I am very satisfied with the customization of Firefox. But today, Firefox stop several times when i use youtube and google. Some youtube videos are not start, and scroll is stop end Firefox says "No response" when i am searching in google. Some of the youtube didn't run at Firefox, so I played them in Chrome and it worked well. And it was not an Internet problem. Because other online programs such as messenger worked well. I bought a new desktop and formatted it a month ago, and I installed the latest versions of Windows and Firefox. This is why I think Firefox is a problem. Please check why Firefox stop today. Thank you.

Before when using Firefox, if I wanted to print, I could select - from the File drop down menu - either Print or Print Preview. Now Print Preview seems to have disappeared! All I get is Print and then a selection menu makes me manually select custom to list the page or pages I want, and then select the size of the printed page - all VERY inconvenient and VERY difficult to use. What happened? Was that an update to Firefox recently. If so, VERY poor decision and programmer that decided on this change should be fired.

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

I have forgot my password to my account and also lost the 2FA codes. Since I have no longer access my account, I want Firefox to delete my account. I used a backup email on that account. I tried to open a new Firefox account with that backup account, but I wasn't allowed to create a new account with that backup email address.

I can provide you my national ID,passport and other ID cards to prove that I am the real owner of the account.

You can even video call me if you want but please delete my account so that I can open a new account with those emails.

Hi, My default homepage URL is set to always open in a specific container. I only have a single page in my home page settings (not opening multiple on launch)

Just recently (assume since the last update to 84.0.1), when launching the browser the homepage is no longer opening in the specific container.

When I refresh the home page that launches with the browser, it refreshes and launches into the designated container as expected.

I there some setting that could effect this or this is bug?

Thanks

I clicked on a video in YouTube that I didn't want to have in my history. After navigating to the History sidebar, I right clicked it and clicked on "Forget About This Site". This was a mistake, apparently I needed to click on "Delete Page" instead, now my long rich history with YouTube is gone, but that's beside the point.

Now even after accessing the site numerous times, the address bar refuses to autofill after I press a 'y', and it doesn't come up on the Top Sites in the homepage, like it was blacklisted somehow. The autofill works with other sites. I have no other website starting with 'y' which makes it search for 'y' in the search engine when I press enter. 'browser.urlbar.autoFill' is set to 'true'.

Firefox Updates regularily break SAP Employee Self-Service functionality on all company laptops - how to prevent firefox to update or rollback updates?

Firefox Updates regularily break the complete SAP Employee Self-Service (ESS) functionality on all company laptops - how to prevent Firefox to update or rollback updates? Best solution would be one that each employee can do without admin rights! Thanks & Kind regards!

Background Info: Since Firefox does not support SAP apps eg. Employee Self Service (ESS) we need to use IE for that. But unfortunately Firefox Updates even destroy IE functionality for SAP ESS. What happen is, that IE crashes and Firefox is opened! (Eventhough firefox is not standard browser! It's chrome!) Only solution is to completely remove all firefox installations company wide from all employee laptops! Until then, we have after each (enforced) firefox update enormous traffic on our first level support hotline.

Thus: How can Firefox Updates be permanently prevented? Or how can Firefox Updates be reversed (without Admin rights) by enduser without IT Support!?

And it is only on Facebook., Version 84.0.2 and the one before this one whenever i use facebook and start playing any videos it slows down and lags. I try the same in Chrome and no issue. What did Firefox do just recently to Facebook's website or maybe their security or? Not sure but it is almost making me leave for Chrome.
