Hi there, Firefox Community,

I am looking for an answer why FireFox is showing my Wordpress Blog page in a wrong format. Edge, Chrome and Safari are showing my blog page in the correct format:

https://haraldlabout.nl/fotografie/blog/

In the uploaded images you can see the differences. The one with the small blog items is the correct one. A couple of months ago there was no problem with FF and it was also displaying the Blog page correctly.

So the question is: whats wrong and how do I correct this.

Hope to find an answer her, any help is much appreciated.

Greetings from the Netherlands,

Harald

I would like to archive (in a very protected area) a LIST of my "Saved Logins", with passwords. How do I export such a text list from Firefox "Privacy and Security"? Looks like I am unable to just copy it, and paste it. I understand that these saved logins can be sync'ed to other machines, but I want a list.

This happens even when I set my homepage to something different.

Nothing seems to be helping to restore the screenshot option, because I have tried all the suggestions except refreshing Firefox, which I really don't want to do having read comments saying that this lost files and caused problems. I really need the screenshot option. I've looked under extensions.screenshots.disabled and it is set to "false". I restarted Firefox. The screenshot extension is listed in the Help>Troubleshooting Information. So now what do I do? I don't understand why it vanished in the first place. I am NOT good with computers.

Ever since I upgraded to Firefox 63, several trusted websites have stopped loading; instead I get sent to an error page with:

Your connection is not secure

The website tried to negotiate an inadequate level of security.

<www.thestar.com> uses security technology that is outdated and vulnerable to attack. An attacker could easily reveal information which you thought to be safe. The website administrator will need to fix the server first before you can visit the site.

Error code: NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY


This also occurs with https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/63.0.1/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Installer.exe

Is the problem at my end or theirs? If the former, what do I need to do to return to the behaviour for FF 62?

Currently using FF 63.0.1, but I'd hoped that upgrade would resolve the ongoing problem.

Extensions work normally after reboot, but within a day, are again missing. Eg. scroll up/down initially available, but then symbols disappear from page. Others in toolbar look fine, but do not activate when I attempt to use them. When I restart FF, it's back to functioning, but only for a short time. frustrated.

How To Make Firefox (plus system) Faster & Responsive By Disabling FF Default New Tab Settings Manually?

Hello earthlings,

Recently, I have noticed a severe drawback on "Electrolysis" - e10s feature (plus interference with add-ons/extensions maybe?), that causes severe CPU load and therefore system non-responsiveness. After some ...hard-core trial & error I managed to narrow down the problem onto that (very useful otherwise) feature, unfortunately: Tools-->Options-->Performance, and reduced the number of processes from 4(default) to 1, and then I restarted FF. Voilà, now my Firefox/system experience is again back to normal! Any thoughts would be appreciated...

Thank you,

All of the sudden Firefox has started autofilling the address bar with URLS I've never visited.

For example. I regularly type "weather" in the address bar to do a quick google search for the local forecast. It used to be that I only needed to type "wea" and hit enter as it would autofill "weather".

Now, it autofills to something called "weasner.com" and then "weather-widget.apk.black", neither of which appear in my search history. Since the second one includes the word weather, I have to not only type the full word out but then erase the irrelevant part of the erroneous url.

Where did this come from? Is there some way to turn it off and restrict Firefox to only suggesting terms I have searched before?

Firefox 63.0.3 on Windows 10

The popup claims to be a Mozilla extension, but there is no such thing in the list of Add Ons. It seems to be a redirect which opens the requested webpage and the popup at the same time. It goes away when I click the X. But every time I change pages, I have to shoo the popup way like a fly.

The only identification within the popup is " r.svrtrack.com ". It requests permission for a "monetization" feature. Avast antivirus and MalwareBytes found nothing wrong.

I tried to upload a screenshot, but the wheel just keeps spinning.
