its obvious that the last version of FF has setting issues. Something new in the config settings is preventing css mods from taking place. I know about the toolkit css item etc.... but there is something else that is not right. Maybe you should check with Apple before you release updates. Please find out what is is..you might have to talk to Apple and try different things on a Mac ....to confirm that css works.. I am running the latest.. I think its definitely a FF thing because it worked before and other fonts controlled by Mac are not having the problems that the bookmarks toolbar is having regarding css to enlarge the microscopic font that in on a Mac toolbar. If you cant find anything then I guess its time to go to Brave.

My firefox keeps causing more "Topsites" to go missing and I need a solution. It started as 1 and now it's 3. I have tried searching it on a few different search engines and all I get is unrealated sites and forums as the engines only focus on one word "Blank." It seems to only effect the 64bit versiona and I have no idea how to fix it.

Please help.

Everytime Firefox updates, I get create new account and all of my bookmarks are gone. I have seen how to go fix it, but now after about 5 times of it doing this. I am growing tired of fixing it. Other Browsers don't do this. I even created and logged in to sync, now my bookmarks are there but not on the toolbars as I like.

Can anyone explain or help?

I had Firefox opened in a main windows with maybe 50 tabs of tabs I wanted to look at (documentaries, stand-up shows, stuff from work etc). I opened a second window and while navigating in the second window I mistakenly close the main. As one does, I hit Open recently closed window. Guess what? Firefox opens a window from yesterday and a few more empty ones, but not the one I just closed. Can someone help me with this?

Greetings,

Sometimes on launching Firefox, my system gets into a state where nothing seems to work. (This has been going on for years, but only intermittently) My addons stop working (for example, clicking on the icon for LastPass just pops up a small box with nothing in it) and pages never load beyond a blank page. Sometimes the page that was the active tab before closing Firefox will have a partial load of the page (I've had GMail come up to the "loading GMail" screen with the big envelope, but it never proceeds beyond that) but even that's inconsistent.

I don't use profile sync; I usually just copy my profile around. I've tried recreating a brand new profile and migrating my bookmarks, then adding in addons.

Any thoughts about what could be causing this?

The address wasn’t understood. Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (c) isn’t associated with any program.

Security consultants have advised that cipher suites using the SHA1 hash are no longer considered secure and should not be enabled.

Using the nmap tool we can identify which cipher suites use the SHA1 hash.

On our webserver, (IIS version 8.5 on Windows 2012 R2 ) if we eliminate cipher suites that contain the SHA1 hash, the Firefox browser cannot browse the site. Error displayed = Secure Connection Failed - PR_CONNECT_ABORTED_ERROR We tested versions up to Firefox ( v75.0 ).

Other browsers such as Chrome and IE have no issues browsing our site with the SHA1 hash disabled.

Once the SHA1 hash is enabled, Firefox works fine. Seeking a solution that will satisfy the security folks and our Firefox users.

Problem 1: CTRL key causes ZOOM (no my keys are not stuck as they work fine in Chrome). I have for now fixed it by turning the scroll options (as recommended in forums here to "0"). However this is the second time this had happened. Problem 2: Search engine randomly changes. If I use the search window from the customize link, the drop down also does not work which means I cannot switch the search engine simply using the drop down menu. Problem 3: Drop down menus in some websites dont work. Example is multiple saved logins on say an email website. Usually it shows you a drop down menu for all the login names to choose from. Now, the menu flicks for a second and I cannot choose anything (similar to problem 2).

Please advise. Thanks

I recently observed that when I visit a certain page (not a website, but a certain page in the website), it seems to be attempting to load flashing the "X" repeatedly. After a few seconds it stops and within 10 seconds I am then redirected to a scam survey website asking me how satisfied I am with my internet provider. I immediately assumed the worst and ran McAfee scans, cleared cache, Malwarebytes free trial scans and no joy.

Then I logged into another computer and loaded up the same page. Please note instead of logging into Firefox and clicking on my bookmark, I simply went to the website, logged in and went to the page. It is the same link in the end. Nothing happened. I thought it was something wrong with my PC at this stage.

I then decided to log into Firefox to see if that would yield different results. I logged in on the other computer that had not presented the spam yet. I clicked the bookmark and it did it. The spam page loaded. From this I understand whatever is causing the problem is in my Firefox Account data.

I then immediately logged out of Firefox on the second computer, uninstalled it and then redownloaded it. Without logging in, the spam still comes up. I am lost. Neither McAfee, Malwarebytes or AdwCleaner find it.

The link for the spam is different every time, usually ending in ".xyz".

Before the spam was present, the page always had a normal padlock beside the URL. Now,sometimes not always, when the spam is going to come up it has an orange warning symbol and say some elements are not secure, and it says something about images.

The page it occurs on is on eBay, and I have used this site no problem for years. It only occurs on my regional message page specific to my country, not on the message page on "ebay.com".

Any help greatly appreciated.
