After the latest upgrade to FF Developer edition 63.0b1 on Mac El Capitan, most of the time I get only a new blank page when clicking a link in an email or url-alias on the desktop. Oddly enough it is not always the case. I tried restarting FF and Mac to no avail. Any ideas?

FF MUST FIND A WORKAROUND FOR THIS ERROR: "The owner of www.xxxxx.blogspot.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website. This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate."

Absolutely not acceptable that FF prevents a user from doing what he desires to do. I'm not using any 3rd party security stuff that would demand certificates.

Maybe the blog owner has created his page using some code that conflicts with the higher doman, but there is no way to TELL him since I can't see the page... It is up to FF to somehow workaround this so that I, the USER, can control my tool. An uncontrollable tool is at best useless & at worst dangerous

What is going on??? I've used flash to stream the news channels on a particular site, for years, on my old iMac, and Macbook Pro, now I have a brand new iMac, and Firefox won't run it, doesn't even give me the option to use it, and the feature in preferences that allows me to list exceptions to not playing video or audio shows no way to ADD a site, making it completely useless! What is causing this dysfunction?

As the image shows, I try to add this website, but there's no way to do it, and there's no sites shown in the window, now. So HOW do I get them in the window??

How to open bookmarks in a new tab (rather than existing window)

This is not a question, but simply how to resolve this issue. There are many people who appear to have this issue, yet it remains unresolved in many of the threads/posts (especially those that appear on search). Many have utilized add-ons to address this, but many of these proposed solutions aren't compatible with the current versions of Firefox.

Solution: 1. Bring up Firefox's Advanced settings/config page by typing the following into your url bar: about:config 2. Search 'bookmarks' (or 'browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs' if you only want the exact preference name) 3. Locate 'browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs' and double click it to change the value from false to true.

Btw, Mozilla.. your workflow makes it rather difficult to create a support account (I understand you don't want everyone and anyone to just create accounts, but if your TSEs aren't answering questions, it'd be nice if you allowed others within the community to help). Also, purely just a suggestion, but your nomenclature/terminology on the Support page would be nice if it also referenced 'Mozilla Support account' rather than 'Mozilla account,' emphasizing that the user does not have an associated Support account, unless created.

Cheers!

REAL full screen.

Why is it so difficult in this version to go true full screen? Having the tab and address bar visible doesn't satisfy the definition of full screen. I have looked around forums and in preferences and it almost appears as though Mozilla doesn't want to make it easily accessible. Why?

entries in /etc/hosts that are not real (e.g. notrealsubdomain.example.com) work. If I try to point e.g. example.com to 127.0.0.1 it is ignored and the "real" resolution is used. Entries in /etc/hosts should have the highest priority. Also, I've tried every recommended solution by modifying settings in about:config.

Firefox constantly hangs/freezes on Mac OS

Duplicate of /questions/976177 Firefox constantly freezes on my Mac, although I've installed the latest version and tried all suggested fixes - without success. (locking)]. aw

I'm using an iMac, system 10.9. My problem is that Firefox 25 launches correctly and displays Google (which I've chosen as my start page), but that whenever I go to to a web page, Firefox hangs/freezes. For instance I can go to the BBC site, but once there FF hangs/freezes. Then it won't respond to any clicking or commands, and I have to force-quit.

Firefox has even done this in the Mozilla help pages !

I've tried several other "fixes", all to no avail. Besides, a fix or workaround should not be necessary -it isn't with other browsers. And I've trashed FF more than once, doing a clean reinstall (yes, I've been careful to also trash any associated file, using Appcleaner).

The problem has been there in every version of FF I've tried in the last four years. Version 3.5 worked well but all the subsequent versions have caused this problem. Why ?

As I said, other browsers work, and do so without needing any "fixes". So they work, and so does my computer. The problem is with Firefox, that obviously has a flaw somewhere. I'd love to know what it is.

Hey everyone!

I'm getting this error from spesific media websites only: "The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported". Before you ask:

  • It's an HTML5 player, so nothing to do with Adobe flash
  • And these videos, I watched them before. So suddenly I just couldn't. I can watch them on Safari and Opera (Those are other browsers I use, in case I face something like this).
  • I don't know what happened, I didn't even upgrade my Firefox. This error came out of nowhere.
  • The website I can't watch videos from is Openload.

The extensions I use (If necessary):

  • Adblock Plus
  • Flash Video Downloader
  • Fontface Ninja
  • Folx integration
  • FlashGot

But yesterday I opened one Openload video. But it was a one-time thing. Anyone can help me?

So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?

Someone else used my computer to log in to their gmail account a long time ago. Now, everytime I want to log in to my gmail account, their profile pops up. I can't log in to delete it, and it is annoying because I'm always asked to log in to their email first...rather than my own. I could easily delete the user when I log on using google chrome...

Login for Gmail long-in NEXT button no longer responsive after installing latest Firefox 62. I usually have gmail account set to always be logged in. I signed out then attempted to sign back in. I typed in my username and click NEXT but this button is NOT responding anymore. So now I can't log into gmail with Firefox 62 on iMac.

I tried to open a “private” window in Firefox (first time using this) and the NEXT button in Gmail works and allows me to log in (I can see the indicator scroll and everything functions) , but in standard browser this button is unresponsive. I tried changing tracking, pop ups, added exceptions to gmail …. nothing fixes the issue. I cleared all my cookies, clear cache (now I have to re-authorize or re-validate my computer for all my banking & credit card access for payments, and everything, etc … big pain in the ass … thanks Firefox) . Why does NEXT button (or these controls) only work in private window but not in standard ?????? I also noticed recently that some other sites have had dome buttons that aren’t recognized after clicking.

iMac with Sierra 10.12.6 32gb ram, worked perfectly until I logged out and needed to log back in.
