On all HTTPS sites, I get this message...

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.adobe.com. (or whatever site... lynda.com, bill pay sites, banks, etc...)

The OCSP server experienced an internal error.

(Error code: sec_error_ocsp_server_error)

 Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site.

This happens ever since I updated from FF6 on all sites that use https for logging on... I've contacted most of the sites and they say it's not them... they are all sites that I've accessed in the past and use regularly... now since I've updated FF, they don't work anymore and I've had to use another browser to access these sites... it's a royal pain!

Babylon has added itself to my Firefox browser as a search engine. So if I type a search term in the URL window, Babylon comes up. I know it is a tracking device and it 'found' me when I used their site for translation. BIG mistake! I have uninstalled it, removed then reinstalled FF and it still is there. How do I get rid of it?

It is like looking at a plain but contracted text page almost without attributes. There are links but the page is difficult to use. The background picture has disappeared and so has the text Change Background. Existing links do not work. Mozilla pages seem to be working. It might have occured because of a file cleaning operation by CCleaner but it is not sure because there were hours between the occurences. This has happened once before and could not be fixed except by removing the Firefox installation and reinstalling. I have looked through all the possible settings but no luck.

On our work computers we have limited storage space in our Documents and Settings folder and it keeps exceeding capacity.

If I can change where the Profile data automatically saves, this will solve the problem.

Hi, I had a web page opened on Firefox and then my cat jumped on the keyboard and now that web page is in ridiculously small letters that I can barely read. I closed the browser, but it did not fix the problem. I tried opening the same webpage with Explorer and the font is normal size. On Firefox, the other webpages are normal font size, it is just that one website. Can anyone help? Thank you.

Op onze Laptop heeft onze zoon, Firefox geïnstaleerd en dat is in het Nederlands. Op de Desktop heeft een deskundige het gedaan en nu is alles in het Engels. En daar ons Engels niet toerijkend daarvoor is en omdat de spellingscontrole ook niet goed functioneerd. Wil ik dat omzetten naar het Nederlands. Maar ik kan niet vinden waar ik dat kan doen. Hopelijk kan iemand mij dat in begrijpelijke taal uitleggen. Vriendelijk groet h+t+n.

The Page Up, Page Dn keys no longer usually work under 8.0.1 (using Dell laptop w/WinXP, no mouse). I tried changing the touchball 'hack' setting in about:config from -1 to 0, but no change. The 'arrow' keys also seem to be less useful, but I haven't figured out any pattern to those yet.

One day I went on Firefox to go to AOL, once on AOL I went to sign in to get my e mail. By mistake I typed my password in the space for Username. I erased it but ever since that day, when I click on the username space, among the offered usernames, from the drop down menu, is my pass word and I want to delete it so it never appears on that drop down menu of usernames. Thanks. JEFF

I have 24" display. When using Firefox, full screen, most website pages open with around 5" of empty space on either side. It's like I open a page and it's suppose to fit on a 15" screen. I can change the Zoom but since I can't lock the Zoom, I have to do it for every page I open. It's more fun having this big display and sitting 4 feet away.
