By using the last version of Firefox (74.0) when visiting a website with security connection I got the following error : "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to .............. PR_CONNECT_RESET_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 website owners to inform them of this problem." With the previous versions of Firefox there was no such problem and I could visit the above website. So, please inform me what happened with ver. 74.0 ? By ver. 74.0 is no more supported some older security protocols which might have the above website, or this is a bug by the new ver. 74.0 ? Please inform me how this issue can be fixed ?

This is very frustrating and I hope you can help me. Every time Firefox updates the tabs move up to the top of the browser, when I need them below the bookmarks bar, where they used to be. I did get instructions on how to do it for v. 72 (I think), but now I've updated to v. 78 and the tabs are again at the top. The instructions for changing the css: file go up to v. 74 only. Also, in the css: file I'm not sure how much of what's already there should be replace. The entire file? Or? This is probably frustrating for a whole raft of people, but for older ones like me (I'm 76) it's particularly maddening. I would appreciate any help I can get. Also, where would I submit my suggestion to Mozilla to just add a blasted toggle for moving the tabs back and forth. It would make a whole lot of people happy. BTW, I'm attaching a screenshot of the first page of what appears to be at least 8 pages of css: code. Should I delete all of it or...? Thanks for any help the community can give.

With recent updates shave had 3 problems on my desktop (Windows 7). All settings are default .... everything was fine until the last 2 or 3 updates.... have changed 0 settings over this time. AV is Kaspersky but I have it turned off. FF 78.0.1

1. Every Video I try and watch now has sound off by default ... PITA unmuting all the time. That's what Id like if it is a pop-up I have no interest in but if I PLAY the video, I want to hear it. This has been going on since maybe 4 updates back.

2. It has become a thing of late for authors not to bother writing, but to just include a bunch of twitter posts. I'm not so perturbed about not being able to see them (tho would like to know whats blocking them) ... just a gray box that jumps around, but after scrolling past them the page / text is jumping around. This started 2 updates back

3. With the last update, a new one .... for a game I play with my kids on line, we use a map

https://ballisticmystix.net/?p=map

The page pulls in a grid map which I can no longer see, map area is all black. I just see the names and a grid pattern. Weird thing is It works fine on my laptop. This started on desktop just a few days ago

4. For whatever reason, my laptop "lost" most of its bookmarks


Note: I am typing from my laptop ... all but item 4 are issues on the desktop

I followed the instructions to show image as custom url (thanks), but now my normal home page data doesn't show up. I would like the normal data, favorite sites, article recommendations..., to show up as a clickable overlay over the custom-url-background.

also, pressing c-t nets a second tab, but now it doesn't show the custom background but does show the normal home-screen information. Is there a way to combine the two?

According to he description of “pinned tabs” (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pinned-tabs-keep-favorite-websites-open):

   “Pinned Tabs are small, can't be closed accidentally and open automatically when you start Firefox.”

Unfortunately, this is no true. Often, I find that my pinned tabs end up moved to another window. I cannot say why it happens, but it certainly does, and often. I suspect it is related to dragging the mouse when I am trying to click. I am disabled, and sometimes my attempt to click results in some dragging. If you drag a pinned tab off the left edge of the window, it moves the pinned tab to a new window and unpins the tab. At this point, it is quite easy to accidentally close the tab, and the tab will no longer be automatically opened when Firefox is started.

It should not be so easy to drag a pinned tab to a new window. This behavior should be changed.
