Some of well known sites such as "drive.google.com" & "mail.yahoo.com" is resulting in "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue page" in Firefox. They are opening just fine in other browsers.

This issue has cropped up since past week in Firefox. Not sure what is the root cause behind the problem. I have tried re-installing Firefox, but still no change.

I have checked the certificates of those sites, and they are seems to be in order. I mean other browsers are able to open without issue, then why Firefox is not opening them for me?

Please let me know if this issue can be fixed in Firefox.

I just noticed that the EBay image viewing widget fails to respond to mouse clicks with the latest Firefox updates. Lots of javascript errors were noticed (see attached image).

Chrome does not seem to have the issue, but I want to continue to use Firefox for all my browsing as before. Does anyone else see this? Is there a workaround?

I just had my OS reinstalled with Win 10 32 bit on my 64 bit system. When I try to up or download anything from the web, FFox freezes and need to exit it with End Task. Could the 332 bit win 10 be the problem?

I tried it in safe mode, same problem. 

are there some settings I can look at? I tried Chrome and no problem downloading, Hope someone can help I like FFox more then the others.

even when I go to clear cookies from a site like this one https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/ by clicking the padlock icon, and select Clear Cookies and Site data, it freezes.

I can download and Save programs top right of the screen.

Hello,

I have a question about language options in Firefox. I moved to the Netherlands some time ago but I don't speak Dutch (yet). Most menu items are in Dutch right now, making it really hard to understand.

When I first installed Firefox I removed Dutch from the languages list and the problem was solved, after some time when I updated my browser Dutch got installed again and I can't remove it anymore, remove button is disabled.

English is the fist language selected in the languages list. Is there a way to remove Dutch from Firefox?

After Firefox updated today, it no longer brings up my homepage when I launch the browser. Instead, it's just a blank page (not even a default page). Clicking on the homepage takes me to the correct address.

>Properties show "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" with no extension.

>I've tried resetting homepage defaults in the options, to no change.

Is there anyway I can get my homepage to show up when I launch the browser?

In v76, I was able to stop the URL bar from enlarging by setting browser.urlbar.update1 to false in about:config. In v77, this enlarging URL bar behavior seems permanent. I find this behavior annoying and unnecessary for me. Actually, I think this is just plain dumb. The text does not enlarge, just the URL box. Is there a way that I may be able to disable this behavior, thank you.

Firefox very slowly opens websites from other sources - Evernote, messenger, office word, PDF. It's not really the fault of a too slow laptop (i7-1065G7, 16 GB frame memory, SSD NVMe + current drivers).

It makes my work very difficult, is there any solutions?

Hallo,

sorry, dass ich in deutscher Sprache, in Abhängigkeit vom Wohnsitz, anfrage.

"Cookies und Website-Daten Die gespeicherten Cookies, Website-Daten und der Cache belegen derzeit 99,0 KB Speicherplatz.":

- Diese 99,0 KB lassen sich seit Wochen auch nicht manuell löschen, obwohl ich davon ausgehen darf, dass das Vernichten der Daten bereits im Rechnerabstellung erfolgen muss/soll.

Was sind Ihre Ziel führenden Lösungsempfehlungen? Auch die Neuinstallierung der Browser-Software führte leider ganzheitlich-nachhaltig nicht zum Ziel.

Was verbirgt sich konkret unter den '99,0 KB', wie kann ich das wo einsehen und endlich die Löschung manuell oder eingestellt automatisiert wahrhaftig löschen?

Besten Dank für Ihre Unterstützung bereits im Voraus.

Freundliche Grüsse C. Wilhelm

I want to sort all of my bookmarks in all folders and their sub-folders by name on one click automatically.

I don't want to sort my bookmarks folder by folder since I have tons of bookmarks organized in tons of folders. I looked up the help article "Sort your bookmarks to quickly find the ones you want", but it only shows how to sort individual folders automatically. So I tried to sort them all by multi-selecting all of my folders (no individual bookmark selected) and right-click to sort by name. And the option is unavailable (see image).

Could you include an one-click automatic sorting option in the future updates?
