Hi I have a problem with the configuration of my Firefox. (I hope it is not something more serious like a malware or a security break)

Firefox version 124.0 (64bit) Os: Windows 10 Pro (64bit) 10.0.19045 Build 19045

Step to reproduce

  1. 1. I go to: https://wwws.tesoro.es/index.aspx (website of the Spanish gov)
  2. 2. I click on the link: Cl@ve in the center of the page (that should bring me to https://pasarela.clave.gob.es/Proxy2/ServiceProvider)
  3. 3. I receive an error page "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue" "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER" (see the attached screenshot)

Things I tried

  • I followed the same steps on Chrome on the same machine

The website works

  • I followed the same steps on the same Firefox in Incognito mode on the same machine

The website DOESN'T work

  • I followed the same steps on a completely new Firefox profile on the same machine

The website DOESN'T work

  • I followed the same steps on Firefox on a different machine (same Firefox version, windows 11)

The website works

I installed Firefox on a new computer running Windows 11. I use the X-notifier plug-in to access my Gmail account but can't get X-notifer to run properly on this new install. I was getting an error message, but now it says "Can always read and change data on this site" yet the envelope icon does not appear in my tool bar like it does on my old computer.

As an alternative, I signed into my Gmail account so I can read my email on a browser page. While that works, it works too well -- as soon as a new email arrives, the browser tab running Gmail pops to the top and interrupts anything that I am doing -- even when I am typing a new email or filling out a form on another tab.

The only way I can deal with this is 1) sign out of Gmail until I want to check it, or 2) pull the Gmail tab to a separate window and minimize it so it can't interfere with what I am doing.

I'd like to know if there is a fix for the X-notifier plug-in or a way to stop the Gmail tab from "taking over" the browser.

Please help.

I have always loved Firefox. I started using it because it did not constrict the user to the limits of the narrow minded Microsoft Explorer (Edge). But, this latest update reminds me of what I came to Firefox for. I hope Firefox is not going to become the same way. This latest update (124.0.1) just didn't care about my bookmarks or extensions or anything. It just installed a new version and left it at that. I had several tabs open. Gone. I had several bookmarks. Gone. All extensions. Gone.

For a long time Firefox just updated and left all of those things in tact. What happened?? More importantly, does anyone know how to get these things back?

I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you, Luke

EMBARRASSINGLY I REALIZED WHAT I NEEDED TO DO. THIS IS THEREFORE NO LONGER NEEDED TO BE ANSWERED, SO YOU CAN SIMPLY MARK IT SOLVED IF YOUD LIKE. THANKS!

I chose to reinstall Firefox browser in order to start over fresh and ensure a security refresh. Once installed, I created an entirely new Mozilla account with new info. However, when I go up to the top right of the browser and click on the little icon of the circle with a bust in it (the Account icon), it simply opens the preferences and related settings, it does not allow me to sign in to any account, nor does it show if I am already signed into any account. Is this a malfunction of the iteration I installed, or am I misunderstanding something?

Thanks in advance for your help!

PS attached is what page I am shown when clicking the aforementioned icon

I've been using Firefox and it's saved numerous passwords. However, these disappeared suddenly. Through testing, I discovered they reappear when I restart Firefox in Safe Mode (achieved via about:profiles => restart with adds-on disabled). Yet, re-enabling add-ons (restart in normal mode) causes the passwords to vanish again. Interestingly, disabling the add-ons in normal mode doesn't restore password access.

Looking for solutions or insights.

My Firefox Browser on (Windows 11) updated on 23rd March 2024. Now my History and Bookmarks have been deleted (but not cookies for some reason). yes, it is my correct profile as I checked the dates and also double checked it against a backup I made 2 weeks ago.

Have included an image of my 'more troubleshooting information' details - I'm sure this is supposed to have more data on the page?

If there is no way to recover my hisotry and bookmarks, I see there in my profile folder is a 'bookmarksbackup' folder which contains .jsonlz4 files, one of which was saved on the 21st March 2024. I know book marks are .json files, can anyone tell me how to turn a .jsonlz4 file to a .json?

[Oh, I pressed to add here my 'troubleshooting information' as directed by this forum page and it said it couldn't automatically do it, and when I pressed 'manual', it opened that over this page and so when I pressed 'back' it had naturally deleted this post so I've had to retype everything from memory, thanks so much Mozilla for that. How about a warning that this will happen?]

Clicking on a link in a Thunderbird email does not cause Firefox (the default browser) to open that link. If either Chrome or Brave is set as the default browser, they will correctly open the link. Obviously, the problem is with Firefox, not with Thunderbird. I raised this issue several years ago and have never received a response. I have drastically reduced my use of Firefox accordingly. I am primarily a Linux user (Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, gnome shell 3.36).

A few weeks ago I saw an Mozilla ad for a new Mozilla software product that cleaned up your PC and made it run better. The price was around $125.00 (I don't remember that exact price). It said that I would receive an email from Mozilla with download instructions. it's been a few weeks and I have not gotten any email. Does anyone know if Mozilla offers any such software or did I get scammed? I'm pretty good about seeing scams but Ive used Firefox and Mozilla for years and trust them. Maybe that's why I wasn't as careful as I should have been.
