I use Facebook every day via this PC (Windows 10 & Firefox). . but as of yesterday the site started appearing as shown in the attached clip of a small section of the screen. I guess what's happening is the encrypted page is not being decrypted. .but why and how do I get it working again ? btw, I have no problem viewing the same web site (Facebook) on my Android device (Facebook app) and on my Windows 7 laptop, also via Firefox.

Firefox is v46.0.1

Oh. just in case the image doesn't upload, here's a small clip of the screen contents ! :-( : ‡þ?䯟«þ÷çËz{Aê@@Œ¸Î?3Æ?‡ÔM?’M?Çrþ/•ÿ?%?²??h?z Þe?êZ“?ëš?'Õ†xÆ R©†%¾ÅºJOx•?hÑEG’ßÇ/®a&e´??Ø?V!®±0??7¾ó3ëŸý?ö‚ׯچ41™Æí¼³;1q~àp/?²‘—ÆvQ£^?EzÑ ^”¿??œ QÆ?ÝÚÚ?ÝZ?>J[?¶±Ð~žÔëíÆâõßaý{£uª¥±lÜ„aµ«ì)ÚõÓ‹Ø6Dä¼/؈‚?‚Uѱ/??ºg«¿œ¹Ñ"˜U*áX??<;¶A„zw;Ò‰5?€†ïÿïàÔØU±J|5f8?¥_Vl£??†³Œ/œ?“?*Ïhñ-?艇´e¢tà£Ï?ÒÏ

Whenever I try to set it as my default via the options, nothing happens, aside from it ticking the "Always check if Firefox is your default browser" box. I tried every method on here, and on other forums and nothing has worked. I cannot make it my default browser via the 'set default programs' method because Firefox does not appear there, and, again, I found no answer that helped me add it to that list.

I have Firefox v. 46.0.1

When making a purchase on Second Life, I get this notice:

"Your browser is using an inadequate level of security. Second Life's web cashier and our payment partners will require TLS 1.2 effective June 15th, 2016. You will not be able to make payments after that date without upgrading your web browser, viewer, or internet security software. Please visit this blog post for more information on upgrading your software."

AFAIK this version is the latest version available in Firefox. Can you advise me, please?

Hey, support side of Mozilla!

I have a weird problem. About a week ago, I noticed my theme wasn't loaded properly, so I went to the AddOns tab and, strangely, it's text, as though the style sheet forgot to load. I went to the Mozilla website to download a new theme, thinking this may fix the error.

And... It's all text, too. All Mozilla pages, exclusively, are text-only. All other websites function as normal. I returned to the AddOn panel and noticed that anything that may be "hosted" by a .mozilla website loaded as text. (However, not mozilla.com websites, just (something).mozilla.com websites.)

I have combed through the troubleshooting options (using Chrome, that's what I'm posting from now) and have tried everything. Cookies/history/whathaveyou cleared out. Firefox uninstalled and reinstalled seven times now. A few times I entirely deleted the Firefox folders as instructed. I even tried Nightly to see if it was just a weird bug with the current build of Firefox. Then, conversely, I tried an old build of Firefox.

All do the same thing. Sure, it works *okay*, but if I need anything from Mozilla, I'm out of luck.

Here's the Imgur folder since the Uploader here apparently doesn't work: http://imgur.com/gallery/kb6Us

Firefox 46.0.1 is very slow loading pages. YouTube videos also take a while to load then keep buffering. Twitter won't log-in until I click log-in button a number of times. Some web sites seem OK but most struggle. I have Refreshed Firefox and also started in Safe Mode. My internet is fast. I have updated graphics driver. I considered going back to Firefox 45 and decided to download it. Firefox told me it would take 3 hours and I let it download for half hour. Then I downloaded it in Internet Explorer and it took one minute. My OS is Windows 10 64-bit. This slowness seems common judging by community posts. If this can't be fixed I will have to go through the hassle of installing version 45.

Currently the only way to add description is press <Ctrl+Shift+o> to "Show all bookmarks".

But i want to add description right in the time when bookmark by clicking the star, without extra step to "Show all bookmarks", locate the bookmark, click down arrow button to see the description text box.

Attached is the screenshot of bookmark star dialog, no such "Add description" button feature yet.

My Firefox version is 46.0.1 in gnome.

Hello everyone, I having a problem with my firefox browser. Yesterday I have to restart firefox because it seem starting slowly, and after I refresh firefox the add-on is gone, and I try to update my firefox to the newest version (46.0.1) but it seems not working. I also have tried to downgrade my firefox version but the result still the same as before, I can't install any addon even from about:addons, when I try to browse the addons page, it says problem loading page, it means I can't reach the server, but I have a good-working internet connection. I also have tried to do a clean install, remove the folder from %APPDATA%, reading from this article (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/unable-install-add-ons-extensions-or-themes), start in safe mode, but it's not working :(

Anyone can help me to solve this ? My antivirus is Bitdefender Total Security 2016, maybe is there any compatibility issue with the antivirus or not ?

Your answer are very highly appreciated :)

Whenever I try to access Facebook via Firefox on my laptop, the screen fills with jumbled, nonsensical text. I've provided an image of a portion of it. The problem is it only happens on my laptop's Firefox. Facebook works perfectly fine on my laptop's internet explorer and on my family computer's Firefox, yet does this on my laptop.

Sometimes, if I stay off of it for about 24+ hours, I can access it for about two minutes, before it immediately fails and jumps back to that wall of gibberish.

Also, it's ONLY Facebook. Every other website works perfectly fine.

I apologize if this question has been asked before, I don't know what a problem like this is called.

Thank you in advance!

I've seen some rumors as to why 1-star and 2-star reviews have been being deleted on the pages of add-ons such as Adblock Plus: the most notable ones being that either the developers themselves somehow have the ability to delete these reviews, or some random people have been simply flagging them all for deletion and whoever is reviewing these deletion requests is simply complying (if so, then they seem to be using rather lax criteria).

Either way, I haven't seen official responses regarding this odd occurrence, from either developers or Mozilla. It's rather hard to trust anything that has all of its negative reviews deleted with no explanation, so I think this needs to be addressed.

(I would also like to know if I posted this question to the correct place. It's not about Mozilla Firefox itself, but it is about something integral to the Firefox experience.)
