Hello all,

I have had an issue with all dropdown menus not displaying correctly in web pages for a few days.

All dropdown menus looks empty: I am able to open dropdown menus and the containers have the right size (corresponding to the number of menu items that are supposed to be displayed in the dropdowns), but the menu items themselves are not displayed.

I tried disabling all add-ons and refreshing Firefox, but to no avail.

Thanks!

Is there a way of making the Password Required Pop-Up pop-up sooner? I launch Firefox and start typing in search or address, while I am looking at the keyboard the Password Required pop-up appears on screen silently. I am typing away then find I am typing my search or filling in a form online into the pop-up! The arrival of the pop-up is random time wise, could arrive within seconds or maybe in 30 seconds or maybe longer.If the pop-up HAS to appear it should appear when you launch Firefox. I truly find this very annoying, having to re-type, then entering the password then going back to where I was before the pop-up!

Hello, everyone. My Firefox (v76.0.1, Windows 10 Pro 1909) can't access the English Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org) and some other sites I need to work with. This started happening suddenly Tuesday night.

This is the error (in English, since my Firefox is in Brazilian Portuguese):

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to en.wikipedia.org. 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.

upload.wikimedia.org gives me the same error. The bizarre thing is that Wikipedias in other languages seem to work normally. Other browsers work fine.

Searching it online, it doesn't seem to be a common problem, and it just started happening by itself. I don't remember installing anything on this PC that day. My only antivirus is Windows Defender. I don't use any VPNs.

Tried all solutions I could find on Google. So far I did:

  • Ctrl + F5
  • Edited the hosts file
  • Deleted cert8.db
  • Changed network proxy settings to No proxy and Automatically detect proxy configuration (was in Use system settings)
  • Toggled DNS over HTTPS
  • Went in about:config and toggled network.dns.disableIPv6
  • Started Firefox in Safe Mode
  • Backed up the profile folder and just let Firefox create a new one
  • Rebooted my router

None of that worked.

I work with site builder platforms and since yesterday the error is starting to creep up in those servers, too.

Any ideas? I just noticed that Wikipedia search is gone from the list of opensearch engines also… This is getting increasingly bizarre…

Ever since Firefox upgraded to version 75, using it has become impossible to use via RDP on Windows Server 2008 R2. The behavior is like Firefox completely hogs down the machine, but more likely seems to be impacting the refresh rate of the RDP session. With Firefox open, mouse begins to trail and button clicks and movement stack up and execute as much as a 5 minute delay at times. I saw a similar report, but not 100% the same, here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1278453

Here is what I know so far...

* Specific to Windows Server 2008 R2, tested on multiple VMs on multiple hosts
* Issue not present on Windows Server 2016, Windows 10, or Windows 7
* Size of Firefox window affects performance, leading to validate RDP refresh issue.  If half the screen is Firefox vs the whole screen, the lag is lessened
* Safe Mode immediately resolves the issues
* Safe Mode with all Add-Ons re-enabled still resolves the issue
* Hardware acceleration on or off has no impact
* Downgrading to Firefox 74 resolves the issue (but this could also be because it made me a new profile)

What other details can I provide? Is there anything else I can try? Does this qualify to report a bug on bugzilla?

Is there any possibility that Firefox somehow contributes to the periodic freezes on Windows 10? Even when Firefox isn't running?

I've written Microsoft Forum so many times they aren't responding. I've done everything they've suggested and still the freezing comes back periodically. So I'm just checking other software suppliers I use regularly to see if they have a suggestion.

Thanks for your time and patience, BAB

Alright, I use Firefox like normal, but sometime today it stopped working, I get "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible" error, I looked it up using safari, followed every possible interpretation of the instructions to no avail, I deleted the profiles folder and file, in both cache, and application support, on both my user folder and global HDD folder, no fix whatsoever, I don't know why this isn't working (yes I checked the hidden files, I searched my entire HDD and found no results for anything remotely named "Profile"/"Profiles" and I don't know what else to say.

I have checked: Application support (on every user) & Cache (on every user)

I don't know what's up, I also reinstalled Firefox after deleting everything related to it and I just don't know.

I have a problem that occurs on most websites that use icons. All icons show up as blank white boxes, including Google Maps and Wunderground Map. I've attached a screenshot of Wundermap below as an example. I assume its due to some sort of security setting, but I'm not sure which one.

My extensions are DarkReader, uBlock Origin, HTTPS everywhere, and Privacy Badger, but the problem persists even when I disable all of those extensions.

I've found that input fields will not allow entering a forward slash (/) on Firefox Developer Edition (I am on 77.0b7 64bit at present; Windows 10 64-bit). It has been happening for at least a few weeks now.

This does not happen outside of responsive design mode. This does not happen on regular Firefox (I am on 76.0.1, 64 bit currently) either.

Here is my setup at present. Will provide more if asked!

add-ons: adaware ad block installed. plug-ins: openh264 video codec provided by Cisco systems inc. shockwave flash 32.0r0 widevine content decryption module provided by google inc themes: 'light' is enabled.

Anybody got any thoughts as to what may be going on?

Hi, I googled something and then clicked on one of the search results to visit the website, then I got a Popup from my windows firewall "Windows Defender Firewall has blocked some features of this app". I checked and it was a real window from the firewall and not a spoofed message from the website. What exactly was Firefox trying to do? This is not a fresh install of Firefox and I use Firefox very often, this never happened before. I'm scared that it might be a zero day vulnerability and that my computer got infected. Or is this normal behavior and Firefox does this type of things sometimes?
