I believe I went through the list of prescribed solutions. Safe mode, cache cleaning, history, etc. Browser is up to date Windows is up to date Other browsers seem to display the website (and menu) just fine. Screenshot attached should show extra large menu items following "NEW". https://www.cabelas.ca/

Sorry for being a pain. :)

I have the window sized the same for all the programs I use daily. Up until the version 62 update came along Firefox functioned and saved normally (maintaining set window size). Now, setting the window size does not save when closed and when program is opened it moves the whole program window a little to the left of the screen and every time until it reaches the left end of the screen. I have tried all of the suggestions, delete xulstore, prefs, etc including refreshing Firefox and none of them work. It still dances to the left a little every time it is opened after closing until it hits the left end of screen.

Recently Firefox has stopped playing streaming audio from Google Play or Slacker. It has worked on those sites well, an for years. Audio from Spotify or Youtube work flawlessly. Slacker provides a popup error message that says "Your browser is disabling audio from Slacker Radio. Please update your browser settings. " Google is playing, but no audio is produced. Volume settings on the website are fine. I am running Windows 10 1803 and Firefox 62.0.3 (64-bit). I have tried:

        running Firefox in safe mode; 
        cleared the cache; and 
        disabling Flash Player 

I still have the problem.

Any ideas?

Hi, I use Firefox 62.0 on Ubuntu and I would like to know how to backup my saved passwords without use Firefox Sync and without copy the entire profile folder. I'll explain: considering that for some generic problems the profile could be corrupted in the future, I would like to backup only my password without to be force to use Firefox Sync and uploading my passwords on cloud (with all the consequences on security and privacy) Is there any way to do this? Many thanks

I can not log in to one site. This began just a few days ago. I CAN log in using Chrome and Edge with no problem. I have refreshed Firefox, removed all add-ons, even uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. This is the error message I receive today:

login.diamondresorts.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

Yesterday I saw a longer text message with lots of coding 'jiberish'.

What can I do?

When I try to open zotero.org page I get an error

Your connection is not secure

The owner of www.zotero.org has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

Report errors like this to help Mozilla identify and block malicious sites

www.zotero.org uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is only valid for *.api.mandae.com.br.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

I have no clue how to solve it. I already reinstalled SSL certificates and removed certX.db files from profile folder of firefox.

Using Ubuntu 18.04.1 on both my main device and on a virtual machine. The Private Browsing Window feature previously worked on my main device and is currently working on my virtual machine. I am able to select the feature on both OS, but on the main device (or OS on the physical device) a normal browsing window opens instead of a private browsing window. IPv6 is turned off and using a VPN. Any assistance is appreciated.
