Hello, Since yesterday (Sept, 28th 2021), I have the following message when trying to preview an attached document (PDF, in this case), accessing Hotmail using Firefox 92.0 (64-bit) in UBUNTU Linux:

"Something went wrong while the document preview was being created. Please try again later"

The same error also occurs using Firefox 92.0 (64 bit) in Windows 10, but does not occur using Chrome in UBUNTU and Chrome in Windows, as well as using Microsoft Edge. Can you help me please?

Thanks in advance. Manoel.

Error NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY on every page

Hi, I've been having issues with Firefox for some time now. Every page I got to throws a NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY error. I cannot fix it by setting network.http.spdy.enabled.http2 to false is because Firefox then starts crashing. In the past I've gone around the error by turning http2 off, but recently, first the developer edition, then after today's update to 91.0-0.1 of stable version Firefox crashes if I turn the feature off.

The developer Edition started throwing NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY sometime in spring, then started crashing in June I think. The stable version followed soon as described above.

I am submitting this ticket from a beta version, which for some reason does not have this issue.

I thought it may be the Linux version of Eset, but removing it did not help. I cannot think of any other reason why am I getting those errors, but it seems I am alone because my colleagues don't seem to have this issue neither on macOS, nor Windows.

Hi there, I have a laptop with a fresh Debian install which includes Firefox ESR but I have encountered a bug that I cannot get past.

I guess to put it simply - I cannot browse to necessary areas of an extension that have a menu larger than my where my screen cuts off.. Please see this picture I have attached: https://imgur.com/OzMhWue

In this picture, there is options and buttons I need to select to proceed that are below where the screen cuts off. I have not found any way to shrink this, nor navigate to the missing area. Clicking the scroll icon only scrolls the background website but NOT the menus itself. I am encountering the problem with all major extensions including Lastpass and Metamask - so I assume this hopefully has a solution!

Firefox Nightly cannot be found in the 'Software' store, so probably the only way to download it is by going to the website and getting a tar.bz2 file. I got that, extrated it and placed it in the/opt folder, made an application shortcut, added an icon, and now it's working like a normal app. The problem arises when it tries to auto-update. Firefox Nightly updates very frequently, sometimes more than once per day, and on windows, I used to get a notification saying that a new update is released, and if i wanted to install it. Clicking yes, Firefox would update and restart within moments, and restore all my tabs and windows seamlessly. Here on Linux, I have to manually download the new tar.bz2 file, extract it, replace it in the specified folder, and launch Firefox Nightly again, and again and again usually once per every alternate day, whenever the new update comes. Is there a solution for this? Will Firefox someday release a .deb file for easy installation and updates? My PC : Dell Optiplex 3070 OS : Zorin OS 16 Core (based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS)

I installed Linux version Firefox on Chromebook relying on this instruction: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos?utm_source=www.mozilla.org-firefox-browsers-chromebook&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=seo

and I cannot type any letters other than English alphabet, even though I've set OS and input language to Korean. Problem is consistent to other typing language, except some languages that seems to have letters from alphabet combination.

While it seems that it's normal that some Chrome OS keyboard shortcuts are not compatible on Linux application, I'm not only unable to switch input language on Firefox but also not able to type any Korean letters after switching the input language outside Firefox.

I got a second hand HP Spectre x360 (2015) today which came with Ubuntu 20.04 preinstalled and it seemed fine at first but when I connected to the internet I found Firefox to be incredibly slow to load any site I tried to access. Trying to watch a video on youtube took about two minutes to load. Facebook and Gmail both refuse to load properly at all. No matter what site I try, it seems to take at least 30 seconds to load, if it loads at all. This might be the slowest computer I've ever used, and I remember the 90s! I know the internet connection isn't the problem since my other devices work perfectly. I tried to download some other browsers (Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi) to see if Firefox was causing the issue but they all failed to download properly (error message "failed to install file: not supported").

I'm at a loss. I've tried searching for answers online which suggested fiddling with the proxy settings and going to about:config to toggle the "network.dns.disableIPv6" from "false" to "true". and nothing seems to have helped so far. Any ideas please? I like the computer but it's totally unusable for me at this point.

I use on Ubuntu Linux (90.0.02). When you do a "find' on a page (ctrl-F) the bar appears at the bottom of the screen and you enter the text and search. But then, if you want to get rid of it, the "X" is all the way over to the right and there is no way to scroll the screen to get over to it. I have to move the whole Firefox browser way over to the left, and then resize the window really wide to the right in order to get to that "X". Shouldn't there be a better way to do that? Thanks

Dear Mozilla Community,

I have problems with one website. This website is poczta.wp.pl. Sometimes this can't be loaded. I see this error:

"SSL_ERROR_INTERNAL_ERROR_ALERT".

This is website with https protocol. What is the reason? Other websites works fine. I think that this is not problem with my router or internet provider because I changed both and it is still problem there. I had this problem also on another computer with Windows 10 operating system. I contacted with administrator of this website and they think that all is okay so they suggested me that this can be problem with browser or my computer.

This behavior is very hard to test because this issue is showed very rare. Sometime one time in one week and sometimes two time in one day. I don't know what is going on with this.

Can you help?

I would like to search the bugzilla database for known issues.

While there is a builtin search tool, that does not work: if I search for a string and limit the search to one specific bug where I know it contains the string, then that bug is reported. Doing the same search over all bugs, it (takes long and then) reports that no bug at all contains the string - not even the one where I know it contains the string.

So this search tool is proven defective and cannot be used. What alternatives are there?

Whenever I open a new page in firefox it automatically loads a page from the recent history in the new window. This is partly annoying because there is a delay waiting for it to load a page you don't want, but is also quite a big problem when it loads a page from the history that was a pop-up with a reduced size, and sometimes with settings that prevent you from changing the page address.

I don't know why it is doing this but it is unusable behaviour. I've tried restarting the computer (and firefox) but it is still doing it. This is version 92.0 for ubuntu.
