I've unfortunately encountered this error over the course of two days randomly. The website will work for an hour, and then I'll get this error, so on and so forth. Microsoft Edge has the same issue, my phone's browsers have the same issue (DuckDuckGo, Chrome), but from all of my research, the website is fine. My roommate's phone connects to the site just fine.

I've read a lot of conflicting information on what to do about this error, and clearly waiting it out doesn't seem right since it appears to be entirely on my end. Restarting doesn't help, reinstalling Mozilla doesn't help, I'm out of ideas.

The website is responds to pings and appears to be online on other devices (just not my own), other websites work fine, so I'm completely lost.

Any information on what to do next, let me know.

Had to refresh Firefox after a multiple number of tab crashes, all my info went into a Old Firefox Data folder. I have followed the steps to import the whole fire back into the new profile but it is not working. I have followed the steps listed here : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1212433

and also here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1270211

to no avail. the only thing that managed to transfer over was some bookmarks, but not all of them and it did not bring them to my toolbar either. my bookmarks are whatever but i really need my saved logins/passwords back. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

I am on version 84.0.1 for windows and can't resume downloads without restarting them from the beginning. The internet can be pretty slow and inconsistent where I live so getting a file in one go is pretty unlikely. I saw a couple things saying to save the old .part or both the .part and 0 byte regular file and replace the new ones but when I hit resume the download instantly fails. It will show that while paused it has the old one's download progress, but when it resumes it fails. I'm pretty sure that the sites I'm using allow downloads to be resumed because I can do it on chrome.

everyday firefox is no longer compatible with more and more government, bank and corporate web sites

Is firefox deliberately making sure it is no longer compatible with web sites ? every time it is updated i can add web sites to the list of no longer compatible web sites. and they are not changing, so the issue is with firefox. I see in the about us, Firefox is braging about their collaboration with Ford Foundation, omidyar network, color of change and consumers international and ford foundation even referred to it as a match made in heaven. How ever how can screwing up every day of the week be a good thing or heaven ? How is it these ' people ' think their of any help at all ? The issue with the usps OIC portal issues was never fixed, then it was several banks and credit card company's, now it is home depot corporate log in [ not homedepot.com ] also the apple icloud issue, with some hidden page command that causes the courser to no longer work when viewing pictures. So I am wondering how a bunch of deliberate screw ups can brag about how their making it ' better' by making the web browser no longer compatible with high security web sites then trying to say the issue is with them is not good, helpful, or even a step forwards.

So now the only work around is fire fox has to be abandoned as a joke junk web browser and all of those web sites can only be accessed by google chrome.

I'm not sure if it is firefoxs new so called clown high security, how ever forcing users to go to a different web browser is not more security , it is a deliberate screw up, like making a car that breaks down when you drive it out of your driveway and calling it safer as it can not get into a accident if you can not drive it.

and just so that we are crystal clear for years I have run computers on line with NO anti virus or malware protection, yet my computer does not get infected, but how can that be ? the answer is simple, people are morons that do stupid things that cause their computers to be infected, if your IQ was higher then a bug you would not have all of the issues your all having. So what do you do ? you change the browser thinking it is going to protect you from your selfs, when the problem is not with the browser its with you the users.

So how are all of your continuous changes that cause the web browser to no longer function properly a help at all ?

As a casual web developer I have a few sites that run on my Windows 10 system. Until today, when v84.0.1 was installed, I could access my installation of phymyadmin with http://pma. That is no longer possible. Even though History shows recent use of that URL, explicit entering of "http://pma" is converted to https and connection fails. Privacy & Security 'Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode' is already set. I see no reason why I need SSL for connections to my own system. Please advise.

Yes, i recall the last time i was asking for help with this issue i was told to post it as a bug somewhere. I went to "Feedback" thinking that was logical, but apparently Mozilla is reworking Feedback so that does not exist, and as i am not a software developer, i suspect a technical bug report is over my head anyway.

I don't want to go to Edge, but it would seem Mozilla wants me to. This issue has persisted ever since release 79. I would think that the programmer(s) could "simply" look at what changed from 78 to 79 and revert, but apparently not.

I, once again, have to uninstall the latest release (i installed it, allowing an "upgrade", thinking that by now someone there would have fixed that which at least to me is a critical routine), and reinstall Version 78.0, since that one isn't f'd up. Maybe it is all the enhanced "security" that is now interfering with normal processes, i don't know. That also means I have to get used to the new browser and hopefully finding a reliable password manager to which i can import pages of entries from Kee.

Yes, i know i will get a share of hate mail for criticizing FF at this point. Just consider how infuriating it is after using it since beta 0.3 and having made donations, having what i see as a critical issue ignored, and worse, forcing me to soon change to Edge if no one fixes it. As much as i hate using the Microsoft browser, at least it does not force the Microsoft "Save" dialog box to collapse when trying to print to a pdf, and i am rather disgusted that no one from FF has reached out to try to fix this issue.

And yes, i did try it in safe mode (run firefox.exe /safe) and "Restart with Addons disabled" from the menu|Help, neither of which were successful.

If any of you know how to get this note to someone competent at FF, please do so and let me know to hold off on switching; i dread having to do that, but printing to pdf is mission critical in the conduct of my business.

I've always used Firefox's "set as desktop background" to change my desktop picture on Linux Mint. Recently (after update to Mint 20?), it hasn't been working. I'm not sure it was when I updated to Mint 20, it may also have quit working after I used Pix to set the desktop background?

When I select "set as desktop background" in Firefox, nothing happens. There is no error message. I can still change the background using Pix, but that requires saving the picture from Firefox, opening it in Pix, and then setting it to the desktop. It would be nice if I could do it directly from FF again.

I am attempting to connect to my cable modem to change its password. The router is at 192.168.0.1

The modem does not support HTTPS connections. Even when I turn off HTTP Elevation in FireFox, turn off Microsoft Antivirus and Firewall, then type HTTP://192.168.0.1 FireFox changes the address to HTTPS://192.168.0.1

I can connect via HTTP://192.168.0.1 via my iPhone using Safari.

I have also added 192.168.0.1 with care to that it is HTTP: not HTTPS: address in FireFox to allow popups, and that this address is an exception.

Hello, I update Wordpress pages on downtownlanguages.org. The past couple of days, the site's top menu bar covers up the page headings on all the pages and does not scroll with the rest of the page. I don't know if this is a Firefox problem or a Wordpress problem. The pages display correctly in MS Edge and on my iPad. To my knowledge, I've done nothing in WordPress to cause this to happen. I have refreshed Firefox and cleared startup cache but it did not resolve the problem. Please help. Thank you! See https://downtownlanguage.org/donate for an example.
