Opening up firefox last week am a message saying something was wrong/couldn't proceed (I don't remember the exact text). I tried to delete the message, but it just came back every time blocking opening firefox. I tried to restart it, but the same blocking message reappeared. I then uninstalled it and all my files disappeared, of course. I've today reinstalled it, but no history, etc.. How can I get my original web files back? Do you have a 30 day grace period where any file can be restored like the one Microsoft has? Can I get my webfiles back at all? Please help. tmr W10 64bit

Hi, this is driving me up the wall and I'm about to change over to chrome if it can't be fixed. For over a week now, firefox has been erroring on a heap of websites (I got 3 page and loading errors just trying to log into this site, so it's not an unsecure webpage problem.) If you refresh the page 1-3 times it'll usually go through. Once it's gone through, it'll usually allow you to use that site for at least a while before starting to error again.

I've disabled all addons except my adblocker, norton safe search and privacy badger add ons (all of which I've had for ages with no problems). Computer has been scanned as virus free. No problems with other browsers. Any ideas please?

Typical example message when trying to open a page.

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to diaryofanottb.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

Hi, so I am a regular user of mozilla firefox on windows system. I did not notice when the problem started but firefox has been deleting my history everyday. I log in next day and there is no record of any previous history. I mostly browse on normal mode not the private, also the history settings are also checked not to clear browser history when firefox closes. Also I did not have a mozilla accoount previously before writing this question. Could it be the reason behind firefox deleting the history ? Would you please tell me what can be the issue and will I be able to resolve it on my own ? Thank you !

Yesterday I completely formatted my computer and when I tried opening Firefox today, I got the "sec_error_unknown_issuer" error. This is not the first time that happens, last time I formatted my PC I also got the same problem, and I fixed it by disabling Enterprise Roots in about:config. But whenever I try opening YouTube, the website it's completely ruined, the sidebar (where my subscriptions and playlist are located) doesn't load and neither does the videos from the bottom. Last time this happened, I completely gave up and switched to other browser, some months later without touching anything, I opened Firefox again and somehow it was loading the sidebar. But this time I dont want to wait again, and I don't know if it will "fix" by itself. I tried opening Firefox in safe mode and everything, and had no success.

Starting this AM, Instagram won't load (MacOS 11.6; Firefox 94.0.1) -I just get a greyed out IG icon. The problem does not happen either on Firefox Mobile or on Safari, or on any other website I've tried on the Mac.. The very first time I tried this morning I got an error message about some technical problem with connecting, but now don't even get that. I have closed and restarted Firefox and rebooted the Mac. (Also turned off any adBlockers -- although when Firefox *thinks* it's finished loading IG there are no ad servers or trackers shown.)

Hello, There is a particular website that will not load even though the padlock icon is shown as Secure and the site is verified. I had the same problem in Chrome, but there initially the website was shown as Not Secure. But somehow I fixed it in the Chrome Settings by making the website an "exception". Can you suggest how I can make a similar setting change in Firefox? I copied the "Troubleshooting Information" text into the field below.

Five days ago I installed a Firefox update. Since then, I have 2 problems that I cannot resolve. (1) Norton 360 icon is no longer available on my browser taskbar; I can still run scans and the Norton suite is enabled under "Manage Your Extensions"; but no way to access the password manager while browsing. (2) Facebook will not 'hold' any of my settings; I can set up the Facebook site as my Home page, but I have to log in to my Facebook page from there each time I open the browser; Facebook is not maintaining my game settings; however, scores and the like are being maintained; but, for instance, it is not retaining that I want music off; Facebook is not retaining any advertising settings either; if I check in 'Cookies and Site Data\Manage Data' it says I have not logged into Facebook for 5 days (I log in several times each day); Facebook is not listed under 'Manage Exceptions'.

Due to recent changes in FireFox, user selected colors for background, text and links are no longer honored, even though the "Always" option is selected. Instead, it applies System Color, even though that option is not ticked.

This is a major problem for me, because I am light sensitive due to Chronic migraine, and the white backgrounds that are common cause me physical pain to look at.

Looks like this question was asked twice before with no response:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354750

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1331182

I frequently paste text into the address bar to copy it and paste somewhere else. This is very useful for a variety of reasons (e.g. speed, strips text of formatting) but for some reason a recent Firefox update makes it so if you paste text into the address bar and then copy it, you will actually have copied the current page's URL - not the intended copy.

How do we reverse this unexpected and undesirable behavior?

My firefox suddenly and without warning blocked my start page, the FVD speed-dial addon. I honestly do not care why it did, but how do I get my pages back? I mean I would have appreciated a warning so I can save my pages and links, FFS! And speed-dial also synchronizes these pages across my laptops and mobile, so I lost everything everywhere, because Firefox is an ass??? How do I get the addon back along with my pages and links?

And sure, I don't have to use Firefox if it behaves likes this, blocking my addons without a warning first!

Damn.

Hi,

I have a fresh installation of my Macbook OS, and a fresh Mozilla Firefox installation. I would like to re-import my old passwords and log ins, but it seems that the new version of the browser doesn't have that option unfortunately. I can see only Import from Other Platforms options, but not import from file or similar.

I have .csv file, but no option of how to import in into my browser.

I would appreciate help on this one. Thank you in advance.
