I was trying out various custom fonts and colors while checking my email. Now I am not happy with the choices I made. My email is almost impossible to read. I tried checking the box which says something like "allow website to choose own colors" but nothing changed. I really want to restore the default fonts (and size) and the color. What should I do?

The main "Firefox" menu is in Japanese, but all the rest of the menus (File, Edit, View, History, etc.) are in English.

How can I change the "Firefox" menu's language back to English? I've already tried it in settings.

I am unable to attach screenshots for an unknown reason so will instead link them here:

No problems before I signed up for an account to use Firefox Send. Immediately after that I started to get an annoying pop-up window asking for my master password immediately on browser start.

I want to be able to browse sites without entering a password, and I also want to continue using a master password but only for sites which require a log-in.

I deleted my Firefox account in the hopes that would fix the problem, but the pop-ups keep coming.

I tried unchecking "ask to save logins and passwords for websites" in preferences but that didn't work.

I have not deleted my saved log-ins and tried a new/clean browser because I spent a long time getting all my add-ons and log-ins set up and I don't want to have to reinstall everything, and I am concerned that if I save my profile that it will just re-install the problem.

I have a problem that seems to be limited to one group of sites. When I load a "story" on Newsbusters.org, CNS News, etc, it used to be that comments from Disqus on that story also loaded. The site seems to no longer even load or try to load these comments sections in Firefox. I just checked with Chrome, and it looks like it always did with comments from Disqus loaded below the story.

Since the latest version 66.0.3 (64-bit) I get messages similar to the following. Often there is no specific error code.


Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to secure.tesco.com. SSL peer reports incorrect Message Authentication Code. Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

Ironically the html source shows the page is there and complete. Under 'Preferences->Privacy & Security I have unchecked 'Block dangerous and deceptive content" to no effect.

All is fine under Safari. This is a critical issue as I am having to abandon my much preferred Firefox for Safari, which does not have issues.

I've tried a few things:

- I deleted the folder "sessionstore-backups" in my profile folder and restarted Firefox. - Refreshing Firefox didn't solve the problem. - Disabling most extensions didn't help either.

Has anyone a clue?

It's really annoying and I can't get rid of it.

I've got this issue on my laptop as well. Laptop and PC! They're both connected via the Firefox Sync option.

Thank you for any help!

Best, DD

On many pages (commercial), when I click a link to look at another page, clicking the "Go Back One Page" button results in the original page scrolling down a varying amount.

For example, I visit CNN.com. I then select an article I want to read. When reading is complete I press the "Back" button, which returns me to the original page, but also scrolls that original page, sometimes just a few lines, but also sometimes to the very bottom of the page.

This only happens on the newest (66.0) version of Firefox upgraded yesterday. It does not happen with other browsers. It does happen with Firefox started in safe mode. I also checked the carat (^) scroll in "Options" and this was not selected.

This also happens whether I use the Firefox Page Back Button, or the "Back" button on my mouse.

Thanks Doc

I got home, turned on the PC, loaded up Firefox, and ALL my addons are disabled and tossed into their 'legacy' pool of crap. No happy colorful theme, NO adblocker, no Ghostery... it even disabled my Bitdefender add-ons. Something is NOT right here. Anyone know what's going on? Firefox has NOT updated in at least a week or two, so I doubt it was an update breaking anything.

This morning Adblock Plus was disabled in my browser.

the message n the EXTENSIONS PAGE reads: "Adblock Plus - free ad blocker could not be verified for use in Firefox and has been disabled".

I've been Adblock PLus using for years, on both my computers. And it still functions on my Windows 10 desktop. Is this because it is Windows XP? Can I do anything to reacivate it?

I tried to add Adblock Plus again on the computer - but that did not work either. I get a message that says: "Download failed. Please check your connection' - but I am using the connection without problems everywhere else!

On 5/3/19 Firefox suddenly alerted me that it disabled all of my Add-ons stating that "These extensions do not meet current Firefox standards so they have been deactivated."

Immediately below this message, Firefox gives me the option to "Find a Replacement" Add-on.

After going through this process and locating the replacement Add-on, all attempts to download this (or any other Add-on) produce an error message stating "Download failed. Please check your connection."

However, my internet connection is working just fine.

I am running the latest version of Firefox (66.0.3 (64-bit)). And I have tried downloading the Add-on with my anti-virus temporarily disabled (with no success).

Screen captures are attached.

Does anyone know what is causing this issue and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.
