Recently I started getting an error saying SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE while trying to open a website. That particular site can only be accessed through my demat account so replicating my situation is not possible. Other browsers like Chrome, Edge are able to open it but Firefox cant, it does only when OCSP is disabled. I reinstalled the browser but the problem remains. Pls tell me how to add that website to exception if its possible or delete all the certificates currently loaded on Firefox or a full reset of the browser removing all previous data. And is it okay if I keep OCSP off all the time?

Since a few days, I keep experiencing constant crashes with Firefox.

In the most common way, a Tab will crash first, often followed shortly by the whole browser crashing.

Crashes occur on, but are not limited to, following pages: • YouTube.comReddit.com • Google Account Login • about:preferences • about:crashes • about:support • The very same Support-page I’m writing this on

Crashes still occur after: • Rebooting Computer • Clearing of Cache • Starting in Safe Mode (crashes in Safe mode) • Deactivation of hardware acceleration • Refreshing Firefox • Reinstallation of Firefox (Uninstalled with the Uninstall/helper.exe) • Use of Windows Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool (DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth)

Crash logs list: • Crash Reason EXCEPTION_BREAKPOINT Crash Address 0x00007ff88082381f • Crash Reason EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_READ Crash Address 0x000001f4465fffe8

I’m kind of out of options. Most support pages are 2 years or older, so I don’t really know if I’m experiencing the same errors as they did.

If there’s any more information required, please let me know.

google.com and google related websites doesn't load at all. For example, gmail slowly loads, but loading icon never disappears, loading icon is always shown and then often it shows 'reconnecting' message. This works OK in Chrome.

Steps to reproduce: 1. Open Firefox without VPN - all loads well. 2. Enable VPN - stops loading. If I then disable VPN - it starts loading again.

If I restart Firefox it starts working OK, but after a while stops working again.

Periodically, randomly is all I can say, a message window opens when I power on with a statement about "UpdateBrowserForApp" having stopped working; and then I'm given options to close the program, etc. See attached screenshot.

Firefox is the only browser I use. Is this message from Firefox or does it mean I should do something related to Firefox?

Thanks for whatever info or help you can give. Lee

I store all of my passwords in Firefox's "Logins & Passwords" feature. Even for things that are not online in any way. Whenever I need to create a new login & password record for something online, Firefox will automatically generate a password and give me the option to fill that into the new password and confirm new password fields. For anything that's not online I open Firefox and click the "Create New Login" button and fill in the details. I then go to a site online that generates passwords for me and fill that into the password field for the new entry.

Is there a way to get Firefox to offer a newly generated password at this point?

Recently if I browse pages with maths forumulas they do not display coorectly, instead the underlying Tex or LateX code is shown.

I have several computers and I use Firefox on all of them, but curiously this problem does not happen on all of them, some show formulae correctly.

The image attached shows an example at Wikipedia - Lagrange point . The upper portion is Chrome and displays correctly, the lower portion is Firefox where the formyuals do not display correctly.

This is only started recently. Previously I had no issues with formulas displaying on any pf my computers, for many years.

Very recently I've noticed that Firefox(v95.0) is giving me an error for the Microsoft documentation site https://msdn.microsoft.com/.

MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_OCSP_RESPONSE_FOR_CERT_MISSING

I use this site almost daily and have not had any trouble, and it appears to be fine on other browsers like Chrome and Edge.

Has there been a new setting changed or added recently that I can enable/disable to allow this site through?

I normally use Firefox desktop on my Linux computer.

Last week, I started using it on a public computer running Windows. I installed Firefox Portable and then logged/synced into my Firefox account on this Win computer. I noticed that in the Firefox Portable Windows “about:preferences” page, it says “Your browser is being managed by your organization”, which links to about:policies. In that “about:policies” page, it shows this https://i.imgur.com/JmD8nXg.png Policy Name: DisableAppUpdate Policy Value: true. Now I’m back on my Linux desktop computer and it also has this “managed by your organization” message in “about:preferences” and the same “about:policies” stuff. In other words, it appears that this policy was copied from the Windows public computer to my personal Linux computer. I don’t want that.

How can I undo this? And how can I block this sort of policy syncing?

I recently updated the SSL certificate for my business. My Firefox browser indicates the certificate is "not secure." When I navigate to my website using Bing, the SSL certificate shows as being "secure." I'd like the SSL certificate to indicate it is secure using Firefox browsers. Is there something I can do so that when someone lands on my website using Firefox it will correctly show that it is a "secure" site?

Thank you.

Hello,

I'm creating a Linux distribution, based on Arch. So I have an installer which installs firefox and a .mozilla of a firefox instance I customised for the distro.

The thing is, when the installation is finished and I reboot and start firefox, I have this popup

I'd like to get rid of that and have firefox to start directly on my profile "default". For that, I'd like to modify directly the needed config file in which Firefox writes the default profile, but I can't find it.

So I'd like to know, in this popup, when I click on "Start Firefox" with the "Use the selected profile without asking at startup", what does Firefox do concretly? So that I can do it in advance in my custom installer instead.

(if needed I can send my .mozilla or my whole distro installer)

Thanks!
