Since the last 3 updates I have not been able to get Firefox to display peoples reviews on certain sites like Cabelas.ca. when I use other browsers there is no issue. I much prefer Firefox over chrome but I have to use Chrome in order to read any reviews on products. Is this a browser issue or during the updates did something change that I am not seeing?

Hi guys! Stripe.com crashes FF. The site only displays about halfway down its homepage, then crashes FF. I've cleared cookies, all history, removed and reloaded FF, turned off tracking protection for Stripe at the address bar, lowered tracking settings to standard in FF, turned off hardware acceleration, and contacted Stripe directly. But they can't help with browser specific issues accept to offer standard solutions, which I already tried. Also, Stripe works fine in Chrome.

I'm using 1password extension, and for plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. I deactivated both those plugins but no use. Ideas? Thanks! Ken

I have used an extension named "Update Scanner" for several years, but now it no longer functions. The data I ask it to save is not saved, or returned when requested.

What do I need to do to get it functioning again. It is the current version 4.4.0

EDIT: I can see the WAL and EHM files come and go, but the DB doesn't save the data.

Only my native Russian language is available for spell check, no matter what language packs are installed.

I just upgraded to Firefox 94.0.1. and have lost all my bookmarks and passwords. I have tried to import backups but Firefox is "Unable to process the backup file". This means that I have, for now, lost access to all 1555 bookmarks I have which is as you can imagine extreamly frustrating and anoying. Is it possible to roll back to an earlier version which may work or to produce a fix for this version?

Firefox won't save my passwords setting

I go to Settings > Privacy and Security and tick the box that says "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites". I have also chosen "Remember History" so "Firefox will remember your browsing, download, form, and search history".

I then exit Firefox (either by "Exit" or clicking the X) to save the setting. Then when I go back in to Firefox, the "Ask to save logins and passwords ...." box is unticked and have to tick it again to get all my passwords for sites. It never saves the setting.

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'.

I can't seem to disable the certificate verification on Mozilla Firefox. As you can see on the screenshot, the error code is SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER.

I tried multiple solutions, including :

- https://smallbusiness.chron.com/disable-firefox-rejecting-certificates-59249.html - The three solutions from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20088/is-there-a-way-to-make-firefox-ignore-invalid-ssl-certificates - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1234483 - All of the solutions from https://browserhow.com/how-to-fix-mozilla-firefox-ssl-certificate-error/ - https://itectec.com/superuser/how-to-make-firefox-ignore-all-ssl-certification-errors/

and so on.

Is there a way to disable this for only one website, or at least for all website ? I got a web interface which is self signed (if I understand everything correctly) where we can bypass the certificate "error" but it would be great if I just could configure Firefox to skip it entirely for this interface (as I'm certain it's not insecure and even if it was I'd still use it because I can't use anything else for now.

I know Chrome has a command line which do exactly what I want (--ignore-certificate-errors) but Firefox is a must go for me so I'd prefer to find an option on this browser.

Thank you for your time.

Today I ran into an issue I never experienced before and which I somehow can't fix. Whenever I hit the CTRL button (e.g. for CTRL+F, CTRL+A, CTRL+C, etc.) the zoom is decreased by 10%. Same goes when I use the CTRL button to zoom with the mouse wheel.

I'm using Firefox 94.0.1 (64-bit) under Windows 10

I tried closing the browser and opening it again, restarting the computer and using Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode, but the problem persists. A search in the forum here and on google yielded no relevant results.

Anybody who's got some good advice for me? Thank you very much.

After the recent update, I have had trouble viewing information on my company's file sharing & organizing online program "Teamworks". I have attached screen prints of what I see using Chrome vs Firefox. Other pages on Teamworks do not show complete information either.

I want to add that Firefox has also not allowed Outlook MSG files to be viewed. The only way I can do so is to download the file into Outlook then open through the Outlook program. Having to do this has not always been the case.

Finally, I will note that Firefox does NOT work with my online payroll service Paychex. I have had to use Chrome for this as well.

It is very frustrating that I can't use the Firefox program that I like so much and have become very trustworthy of. Please help me fix these issues so I can continue to use Firefox as my preferred browser. Thank you!
