Firefox ESR 78.11.0 version. For some reason lately a few users have been experiencing crashing of firefox. I'm tried going forward to 78.12.0 and backwards to 68.9 and it still keeps crashing. What could be some other fixes besides refreshing and running in safe mode. It still crashes performing both methods. Thank you!

CIRA Canadian Sheild

Hello, I just read an article from CIRA (Canadian Internet Registration Authority), dated July 8, 2021: https://www.cira.ca/blog/canadian-shield/mozilla-firefox-cira-cana… (read more)

Hello,

I just read an article from CIRA (Canadian Internet Registration Authority), dated July 8, 2021: https://www.cira.ca/blog/canadian-shield/mozilla-firefox-cira-canadian-shield?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=organic-email&utm_campaign=FY21&utm_content=the-dot-11

In it, they write, "Mozilla is enabling CIRA Canadian Shield as the default trusted recursive resolver (TRR) for Canadian Firefox users." I'm such a user. I also know *just* enough about the vast electronic highway system called the "Internet" to know I need safety and security measures in place.

I'm using FF 78.12 on MacOS Sierra.

I thought I'd see if CIRA Canadian Shield was the default proxy by going to Preferences > General > Network Settings. "Enable DNS over HTTPS" is selected, and the default provider is "Cloudflare." I clicked the drop down menu to see if CIRA Canadian Shield was offered as a selection. Alas, it is not. So, I selected "Custom" and typed in "CIRA Canadian Shield" (without quotation marks) and pressed "OK."

My questions are:

1) Is Mozilla enabling CIRA Canadian Shield by default as suggested in the article? 2) If so, why is it not indicated in the drop down menu? 3) Have I enabled CIRA Canadian Shield by typing it in the name as a custom proxy server?

Thank you for your help in advance. Please note, I have a rudimentary understanding of how this all works, so your simplified and somewhat non-technical answers are appreciated.

Firefox UI font messed up on Ubuntu. How to reset?

Hi, I'm using Firefox 90 browser on Ubuntu 21.04. Somehow the UI font for my profile changed from the default and I can't find any way to reset it (see bad_ui_font.png) My tabs, menus and preferences all got set to some fixed-width font, and I can find anywhere in the preferences or about:config, or in my profile folder where I can change it back. If I create a new profile, then the UI font is fine (see good_ui_font.png). But as soon as I login to my firefox account and sync, then the new profile gets the bad UI font. I don't want to have to recreate my profile from scratch and lose all my settings just to correct the UI font. But this is very annoying. How can I restore the default UI font?

Thanks.

Hi

I recently downloaded Firefox from the main download page https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/ The actual download link was: https://cdn.stubdownloader.services.mozilla.com/builds/firefox-stub/en-US/win/aeb02dfeae750c7fa2abe9c7bc07b48193110ac61e2169456253638270735d21/Firefox%20Installer.exe

I normally check my downloads using https://virusscan.jotti.org or https://virustotal.com before I run them with admin privileges. Anyway when I uploaded to http://www.virustotal.com the first thing I noticed was that it had never seen the hash before! (SHA1 hash is 3a974b7394597de41230f7517c293e4b6386eeab.) Once it was uploaded, it was promptly detected by the Cylance antivirus engine.

Can somebody please get in touch with Cylance? I suppose I could contact them myself; however, I prefer not to report it as a "false positive" on the off-chance that particular download actually is corrupted or I got a man in the middle- after all, it's surprising that VirusTotal has never seen this hash before.

I recently subscribed to Norton after many recommendations since AVG is not as good as it once was. I have not been with Norton for over 20 years due to the issues of Norton and earlier Mac applications. However, now, it's like old times -- when I add the Mac El Capitan to be protected by Norton everything looks ok however, when I go to open a page in Firefox, it just becomes a blank page. It won't load.

So, in other words: HELP!

Should I request a refund? Please advise.

I have 4 addresses saved that are supposed to be offered to me when I'm on a page with an address form. Neither one pops up by itself, nothing happens when I start typing in any of the fields (e.g. entering one of the 4 unique company names).

How do I trigger filling in an address? I've tried a lot and have searched here and other places, but can't figure it out. Thanks in advance! (Btw, I'm in the US and, as mentioned, have been able to save 4 addresses.)

I do not use the sync function to keep my bookmarks up to date on separate computers. I have a location on a server that I can access from any of my machines. Usually I import and export to html bookmark file.

I have organized my bookmarks into various folders. When I attempted to update one of my boxes, all the bookmarks were removed from the folders and placed in a huge list in Other Bookmarks. The folder structure did not change, but all the folders were empty.

I tried to use a json file as an alternative, but this also had the same result.

I run Debian Linux on all my machines, if that matters.

What could be the problem?

Thanks in advance.
