Every 20 minutes or so I get a notification from Bitdefender Online Threat Prevention module indicated it has blocked a suspicious connection. This has only started about 2-3 days ago. The only information the popup indicates is:

"firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to gitcdn.xyz. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one."

I performed a full system scan and found nothing harmful. Anyone know what this is or how I can fix it?

Computer sound works. Videos work. Sound doesn't.

I've gone through the troubleshooting. Autoplay is set to 'yes'. Volume mixer shows sound, but doesn't play it.

Got it to work yesterday by changing autoplay settings to yes, but now it stopped working. This is true for facebook, messenger, youtube, etc.

Since version 86, there's something wrong with copying from clipboard (text or image) and pasting in Gmail/Firefox, the pasting now happens twice.

Other webmails are OK in FF, such as Gmail in Google Chrome.

So, I have installed a search engine addon BUT I don't like the default shortcut keyword. I know I can add a custom, new one, but as far as I know, I can't remove/replace the default one.

Why isn't it possible to create a custom search string like on mobile Firefox in the first place? It would make things so much easier... :/

A couple of days ago I tried to login in to my account at dpreview.com, and got a '400 Bad Request Error' that pretty much locked up my Win10 system. No problem logging in to other websites using FF, and I was able to log into the dpreview.com website using Chrome, with no problem. I just updated FF this morning with the latest release, hoping that might fix the problem, but unfortunately, same error message.

On a different computer, also running Win10, I was able to log into that website with no problem, so it looks like it is only on this computer, using FF to log in to that website, that the problem occurs. All other links at that website work fine.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

Used to be able to download files from anywhere I chose. Now, cannot download from www.bluesound.com. ISP and I ran test that shows download and upload work, and AT&T e-mails are arriving into MS Outlook (although very much slower than in the past).

When download request sent to Bluesound, the wait cursor spins indefinitely. Once left it running overnight, still spinning the next morning.

Perhaps this has to do with security settings. Advice, anyone?

Last night Firefox insisted that it be updated and so I allowed the update on my somewhat antiquated laptop. It's the laptop that my wife uses and because she's far from tech-friendly, things need to be simple and basic. She didn't want to update it because everything was fine for the limited browsing that she uses the laptop for but for the sake of doing as we're told, we let it happen.

When the laptop restarted and we went to open Firefox, a damned User Profile Box appeared - one that's got me scratching my head and cursing. What the hell is it? Choose User Profile Then inside the box; Create Profile Rename Profile Delete Profile She doesn't have a 'profile' - what the hell is it anyway? Why should we make this change - what's it in aid of?

Whatever, we opted to click on Rename Profile and found that the existing profile was 'User', so I renamed it with her name - and then started Firefox. A blank Firefox page appeared - with no favourites; no log-ins; no records - NOTHING. Preferences? NONE. What on earth has happened? She had a selection of physiotherapy exercises in her favourites - WHERE THE HELL ARE THEY? THEY WERE VITAL FOR HER HEALTH AND NOW THEY'RE GONE. Just what the hell is going on? Why do we need to go through all this - where have all her records gone?

Ok - I searched the internet for an answer. I then found a similar case from back in 2015 - and the member (because it was on this forum) came to the conclusion that it was best to use Chrome instead - and I reckon that's what my wife will have to do. If this change can't be undone and if her saved information can't be accessed (and EASILY - not via a string of convoluted instructions that neither she nor I will understand) then you've just lost another customer. Answers please - and simple ones, not a long guide through the mess that's inside Firefox.

This is really getting annoying. Again the 4k and 8k videos on Youtube are stutturing, saw some some improvement with Firefox 87 at least on the 4k videos. For example this video in 8k does not work at all, audio works fine and it stutters totally showing a single different frame every 10 secs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LxsViMm25o&t=54s&ab_channel=AroundTheWorld4K . My pc is running Win 10 64-bit, 8gb of ram and all with all drivers\os up to date. As usual no issue with Google Chrome while reproducing the above video in 8k.

CPU Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400S CPU @ 2.50GHz 4 Cores GPU - AMD Radeon R7 200 Series with 2gb.

Pls fix.

Hello,

I love Firefox's reader mode's "Listen" or read aloud function. I use it all the time for my academic papers as it helps to drill the information into my head to read and listen to the content.

However, there was an 11x4 table with only numbers in each table cell, and I could not get the read aloud narrator to jump ahead to a later section. When I hit the "Forward" or skip ahead button, it just went to the next cell, and it was a very clunky experience getting to the end of the table.

Does anyone know a way to skip ahead in the content, such as skipping a table or selecting a point in the content to begin reading aloud?

Thanks a ton in advance! It's an incredible community that we have here. Max

Using Firefox on one system, it pops up the "dangerous and deceptive content" message on sites that are fine, like mine and a friend's, but on my other system, no warnings for the same sites. It doesn't do it for google.com or msn.com, and no one else gets the warning for the sames sites I am.

Other than turning off the security setting, is there a way to fix this problem? It wants to block me on many sites I've been going to for years.
