On the bar I have two Gmail acct.s and prefer my newer one. When I click on it I get the older one. Then I must go to the icon picture to change to my preferred acct. This change happened after an update this year. What needs to be done to only click successfully once?

I have been using using the "Email a link to this page" feature for a long time (previously it was Share page feature I believe) and have correctly setup the mailto: in preferences to use Yahoo Mail. Recently in Firefox 62, the feature now only starts up the Compose mail function for Yahoo Mail but the message is blank. Previously it had automatically inserted the Subject with page title and body with page url.

I've tested in both Linux and Windows, with all add-ons disabled and the behavior is the same.

I hope something can help me, because I don’t’ know what to do.

I check my hotmail account with Firefox, never had any trouble. But, after UI changed with hotmail account a month or two back, I’ve been having trouble signing it with Firefox, sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t. During this time, sometimes it would let me in and sometimes it won’t let me check at all.

I just keep getting this error: "Something went wrong and we can't sign you in right now. Please try again later."

  • BTW: Server status for hotmail is always 'green, no problems detected' when I get this error, so that makes me more confused on what's going on.*

That’s in Firefox, I then tried Firefox in safe mode (add-ons disabled) still same error.

I then tried restarting my PC, clearing catch/cookies, nothing seamed to matter and I have latest version of Firefox.

But, oddly (or not) when I try to sign in with IE, it logs me in just fine.

  • I also tried Chrome, I can log into my hotmail account just fine also.*

Anyone else having trouble with there hotmail account + Firefox?


I haven’t added/removed any programs for a while, just updated flash player/adobe/etc, you know, the usual stuff.

All screenshots I took are attached, details of when are in file name.

  • add images feature on creating page, is not working for me, had to do this way, sorry*

I'm using latest version of Firefox v40.03 on my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS, no other sites I have this trouble, can someone please help me?

I did send a question to the tech people at Microsoft, but only got 3 replies from them: 1 - ‘Thank you for contacting us', 2 - ‘Can you install/run this program FiddlerCap and send us the results?’ 3 - ‘We are going to send you over to this other department instead, you’ll hear from them soon…'

That was ~5 days ago. Nothing so far from them.

  • I don’t’ know what FiddlerCap was, I think it’s something to test the https or something, but got these odd errors when running it*

I really love Firefox have been a fan since v3 (I think, long ago), if anyone has any idea please tell me, if you need any info or something , ask and I will get it!

I don’t know if it’s related but I also got once or twice, an odd secure connection error, but I only got it a few times, so I don’t know if it’s related to this or not.

Error I got: “…Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to sc.imp.live.com. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). (Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap)

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…”

I tried changing the line “security.tls.version.fallback-limit” to 1 (originally was 3) instead, but restart PC/clear cookies, restart Firefox, nothing, no error, but still no hotmail access with Firefox.

Hi! When I went to my mail today (hotmail) I saw a symbol up in the left corner. It was the lock with a exclamation mark on it. I click on it and then I click on the arrow for more information. It says my connection is not safe. That it's not private. I then click more information ans select "security". I can read about the information but I find no way to change it so it becomes secure and gets the regular green lock without the exclamation mark. I have googled and read a bit but nothing tells me how to change it...

I get a screen that says "Connect. Organize. Get Things done" It wants me to either sign in to Outlook or create an account. I don't want to do either, but I can't get past that screen and clicking on either button does nothing. Safari works fine but all my bookmarks, etc. are on Firefox. This screen has appeared randomly for several days but I could always work around it. No more. Microsoft says the problem is with Firefox, and since I Safari works, I'm afraid they're right. I really need to be able to use the information on Firefox!

I've contacted Google support, they say my account is still open, it's been 2 months now that I've lost access to this account. I've followed all recovery steps to no avail. I was using the Firefox browser when this happened. The email that I've lost access to is the same one that I used to make my Firefox account, but I have no way to verify it's my account.
