Hello,

In the last week, I have noticed an error message on a site that I usually log onto, and am unable to do so which looks like this: Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.plus.net. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem. I have contacted the web site owners, and they have said it is my browser as the site is working correctly.

The second issue is that I am able to log onto my gumtree homepage, but unable to access my account due to the following: I have checked my Firefox browser and it is running the latest version 105.0.1 I have noted that on the bottom left of the page when trying to access my messages or manage my ads the following is happening but times out after 15 seconds: Unable to perform tls handshake to sa.gumtree

Gumtree have said this is a browser issue, so that is why I am contacting you for assistance.

I look forward to hearing from you, at your earliest convenience.

Best regards, Arvin Kumar

Hello to all.

I have a wired problem with the loading of the same local development website in Firefox and Firefox private window browsing, the same local development website is loaded very slow in private window browsing.

I have uninstalled Firefox completely and started with fresh install without any add-ons or themes, all the things are default.

Please check out this screen capture with the problem https://imgur.com/a/cigSamd

Can this be just a rendering issue as the network metrics are the same?

Thank you

This is a random error, with no specific website in question. The font display error, seems to be corrected when closing and opening the browser. It appears on specific parts of text within a website in a strange font (its always that "hand-written" font). On the example attached, it was a simple google search.

My wife sent a link to an Amazon product. When I clicked on it the Amazon Smile site from my desk top it came up briefly then went black. Since then, when I bring Smile up again it has different fonts (Times New Roman versus Arial/Calibri), the home page and selecting options like Wish List shows a mish-mash of sentences and images.

I tried rebooting Firefox and running the troubleshooting option, same thing. The Amazon Smile site is normal on Chrome and Edge. It is also normal with Firefox on my iPad and iPhone.

Would prefer not to uninstall/re-install Firefox on my desk top if there is another option.

About 3 months (or so!) ago, Firefox stopped saving the setting:

Logins and Passwords

   Ask to save logins and passwords

I set it for it to always ask, if I don't, any saved passwords won't load when signing into a site. Now, each day, or anytime I close Firefox, I have to click on Settings and click inside the box. Once I do that, the passwords will load for me.

I have untinstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

Any suggestions or do you know if anyone else has experienced this issue?

This is a burner account, obviously because I can't access my "main" account.

I haven't used Firefox since 2020-ish and I felt like I wanna come back to see if it's better than my current browser, but when I tried logging in, it asked for my 2FA code, I do not have that anymore, I have the Authenticator app from Google but I must've deleted Firefox after not using it. Now I looked into how to find the recovery code or whatever the hell it's called, but that I also can't find whether it be in files for a real old notebook.

Is there any possible way to find this code or change it? I don't care about all the information on said account if it gets deleted or not. I just hope to get access to this "main" account so I don't have to continue using a burner.

-Thanks, Random Guy on The Internet.

Hey friends,

I'm experiencing an issue with Firefox only (Edge and Chrome are fine) with a specific site/certificate and was hoping someone had some advice.

The site in question is github.ourcompany.com, which has a certificate issued with the following:

Subject Common Name: *.github.ourcompany.com

And the following Subject Alt Names: DNS: *.github.ourcompany.com DNS: *.github DNS: github.ourcompany.com DNS: github IP: 10.x.x.x

When I browse to https://github.ourcompany.com, I get a SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN message, even though github.ourcompany.com is a valid SAN. I'm wondering if this is to do with validation rules regarding wildcard SANs, or perhaps the order of the SANs. Has anyone seen this before?

Hello, I am a bit concerned, as Firefox never before acted this way. Has this been reported? 0. Few weeks ago computer froze, after restart, bookmarks that I had made new had disappeared and old ones appeared, as if firefox reversed to previous saved setting from hour before freezing of computer.

Now, the main ones that have been happening during last week: 1. Firefox randomly downloaded (twice during last week) some random file with random letters, for example " H3jO5Ni4m.htm". It was always one file, that was a ".htm" file, and it had 0 bites. I uploaded the file to virustotal and it brought me to this: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/e3b0c44298fc1c149afbf4c8996fb92427ae41e4649b934ca495991b7852b855/detection

I then googled about this specific problem with Firefox downloading a 0 byte .htm file, and it has been happening to people for last 6 months, not many cases, but some,still. Peoples comments implied that this is harmless and that it is a bug of Firefox.

2. Firefox today,about half an hour ago logged me out of most websites, not all, but most. Firefox never ever behaved this way and it happens only to Firefox, not any other browser that I own.

During last week I scanned my computer in both normal and safe mode with: Eset Online Scanner (a one time useantivirus program), Avast, Roguekiller, Malwarebytes, Mbar (Malwarebytes anti malware), and never found anything. I consider these programs most reliable, and have been using them for years.

Is it a bug of this specific version of Firefox please? I have version 105.0.1 (64-bit) and problem 1 and 2 happened since then I think.

I have been using sync from day one: best thing ever regarding my productivity. AFAIK, credentials get encrypted before sent to the FF cloud, using information derived from my password.

Short version: what happens when I change the Firefox account password?

Long version: I'm thinking of replacing my current password, with a very long one. If I do so, will there a re-upload of my data take place? Will my credentials on the cloud become harder to crack (assume that the new password is longer and more complex).

I am getting a 404 Not Found message on only one page of a gigantic web site (www.bowl.com). I go to this page 10 or 15 times a week--for almost 20 years--and have never had a problem. Bowl.com's IT department has no idea why. I have cleared my cache and history (many times over the last week or so), and nothing seems to work.

I can access this page with Edge, and with my smartphone and on other computers in my network (Firefox), but I have to access this page with my THIS computer.

Firefox Won't Open

I'm trying to download Firefox, but it simply refuses to open. I've only gotten it to open twice, when I downloaded it from the Microsoft Store (which still doesn't work unless I've absolutely cleared my computer of any trace of the Firefox I download from there), but when I tried to open it back up again after turning my laptop off/putting it to sleep, it didn't open.

  I install it from this website otherwise.  I'm on Windows 10 with a laptop, and I've already checked that my storage isn't the issue (I've had it bug apps out on me one too many times).  I've uninstalled everything my computer would tell me exists in relation to Firefox before reinstalling it, but it still doesn't open.
  And when I say it doesn't open, I don't mean it loads slowly or doesn't pull any website up.  I mean for half a second, I see the outline of a window (sometimes windowed, sometimes not, usually with the minimize, windowed, and x on it but not 100% of the time), occasionally a black inside, before it's gone.  I check my running apps and it's not there.  I've tried running it as Admin, making it my default browser, trying to find if there's a 'fix' option for it (as far as I'm tracking, there isn't), running compatibility troubleshooting, restarting my computer, refreshing when it asks me to try, reinstalling when that doesn't work, and properly more I'm forgetting about.
  I really like Firefox, genuinely, I do, I used to use it on an old computer, but I can't open it and therefore can't use it.
  When I opened it off the Microsoft Store, I did sync my Chrome information to it, but I believe I deleted that (I may be mistaken, though), and even if that did pose a problem it still didn't work when I originally tried to download it off of here.  Sorry for the long(?) question, I'm just trying to cover every detail I can think to cover.
  (Warning, I'm a little bad with following detailed instructions, so if any help could be simplified if possible that would help me a lot, thank you for any help anyone can provide!)
