Is there a setting where I can be notified before you take it upon yourselves to download/install an update? While I was away from my computer this afternoon I was hit by a Firefox upgrade that shut down my email and all my tabs. I've lost stuff I may never find again. If the MF'er responsible were in reach I'd punch his lights out. Seriously.

I can no longer use Yahoo Mail on Firefox and have had to move to Chrome and Bing in the short term.

1) Contacts no longer show up when starting to compose a mail

2) Writing a mail - the CTRL key no longer work. CTRL I opens a Page Info CTRL B Opens Bookmarks etc....

3) None of the buttons work at the top -Move -Delete -Spam

Basically, Firefox is useless for Yahoo Mail now!

Firefox is normally the best, but not yesterday or today.

Hope it can be fixed soon.

I have noticed issues with; when I download an attachment, i.e.graphics file, that the browser closes.

I have my emails configured where Yahoo and gmail available by selecting. Sometimes Yahoo mail will close and Gmail will remain open, Firefox doesn't crash but somehow closes either gmail or yahoo but not both???

Dear firefox support team,

Since yesterday I've been having twitter act oddly on my on my main twitter account, but only using firefox. It keeps being on the 'try again' option window as if the wifi isn't working properly, whilst the Wifi is okay.

It keeps giving me the 'https://twitter.com/?failedScript=main' address too. And I can't think about what Script might be running into an issue. I have access normally on my android phone and google chrome. Doing a 'safe' restart didn't help either, and disabling my extension carried no result either.

I figure, since I can log in on other platforms this might not be a twitter issue, but well, I'm asking here to be sure.

I put an image of the screen I get in the attachments

Thank you

When trying to navigate to websites I very frequently receive the error message, "www.google.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR". (1) This is an intermittent behavior happening on websites that were accessible previously and then become accessible again on later attempts, (2) It happens on websites that I have used satisfactorily for years. (3) It happens on ones for hospitals, banks, etc. which are known to be secure. This occurs after waiting for a period of time, like a timeout error would. I do let my copy of Firefox do its default auto updates.

Please advise how to end these errors so that I can reliably use Firefox again.

Recently I am continuously proposed to install updates. I do that, but I think the installation may fail, because immediately after restarting Firefox I'm proposed to install a new update. I have Firefox set up to download updates as soon as they are available.

The version I'm using is 104.0, which should be the latest one available for desktop, therefore I don't understand why the browser is trying to load again the update.

Consequent to recent Firefox upgrade 103 leading consequent distortion of UI - mostly rectified now- bookmarks disappeared during my early attempts to sort this out [via roll back]. Replaced bookmarks folder is left justified on screen - previously it was to the right. It can be copied and pasted but always jumps back to LHS. I haven't been able to drag n drop or otherwise move this tab elsewhere - internal organisation menu doesn't seem to deal with this subject. A small thing, but Why is it so?

I have a new laptop on which I have tried to install Firefox several times. It seems to install properly, and connect to web pages, but then nothing displays, it just shows a blank page. I've done all the basic help suggestions, clearing the cache, etc., none of that worked. I keep getting an error message: The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dill was not found. Went to a help page, where it suggested that I go to a Microsoft support site, download and install vc_redist.x64.exe. Did that, it made no difference. I'm trying to get this on a Dell laptop (Inspiron 15 3000), working in Windows 10. Really want to use Firefox as my browser and would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you!

I want to test a group of sites to see if they accept TLS 1.0 connections.

Many sources including https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1101896 say that you can force Firefox to send TLS 1.0 requests by setting security.tls.version.max to 1, and I have done this successfully in the past to test if a site supported TLS 1.0. (Sometimes a site allows access over TLS 1.0 but disables certain features such as submitting credit card numbers.)

However, I am now getting inconsistent results when trying to do this. I set security.tls.version.max to 1 and restart the browser. Then I go to https://www.google.com/, click the padlock and navigate to more information, and it says "Connected encrypted (TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256, 128 bit keys, TLS 1.3)". Note, TLS 1.3. But I could swear the first time I loaded https://www.google.com/ the same dialog box said the connection was using TLS 1.0.

Meanwhile other sites like https://wikipedia.org/ and https://twitter.com/ fail to load with SSL_ERROR_PROTOCOL_VERSION_ALERT. I understand why (they don't support TLS 1.0), but I don't understand why the connection to Google is showing TLS 1.3 in the same browser window.

Is there some mechanism by which a site that initially accepts the TLS 1.0 connection, is then forcing Firefox to switch to 1.3, overriding the security.tls.version.max setting? That doesn't make sense but it's the only thing that seems consistent with observation.

Thanks!

Hi, so yesterday, I updated to the latest version of FireFox (version 105.0). Nothing seemed to be out of the ordinary until I decided to watch a few YouTube videos. The best way I can describe this problem is that every time I decide to scroll down to see the description or read a few comments, the entire screen on my laptop goes black regardless if it's on default view or full screen.

Even though that does sound like a crash, the audio still plays, and if I power the computer to sleep mode and log back in, the window of the video automatically scrolls up and everything is back to the way it was (but I did had to restart the laptop once because it also visually broke my mouse pointer). The only way I can get around this problem is to pause whatever video I watch and then scroll down, and no black screen occurs.

I don't know if I'm the only one who has this problem, but I've never had this issue happen in past versions of FireFox. If there is another way to fix this problem, I'll be glad to take anyone's possible suggestions/solutions.
