Client certificates don't stay deleted. cert9.db is restored on Firefox Nightly re-launch.

Steps to reproduce: - I delete a client certificate "Your certificates" - I close Certificate Manager - I open Certificate Manager and the certificate is back

- I delete the same client certificate - I locate the profile in about:profiles (Profile: default-nightly, is in use)

 I do "show in Finder" and delete cert9.db

- I close CM - I open CM and the cert is back

- I delete the same client certificate - I locate the profile in about:profiles (Profile: default-nightly, is in use)

 I do "show in Finder" and delete cert9.db

- I close Firefox Nightly - I open Firefox Nightly and cert9.db is restored, the certificate is back.

uname -a: Darwin Axels-Dev-MacBook-Pro.local 20.5.0 Darwin Kernel Version 20.5.0: Sat May 8 05:10:33 PDT 2021; root:xnu-7195.121.3~9/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64 BigSur 11.4

The client cert is not in the Keychain. It was before but I thought maybe it is restored from the keychain.

It's awful. I switched from Chrome because it's a CPU hog, but FF is absolutely USELESS. NOTHING works. It crashes if there's more than like 5 tabs open. It WILL. NOT. PLAY. YOUTUBE. I have only one extension-- adblock-- and basically any site with blocked ads becomes useless. Convenient... These problems started literally the first day I used it. I've cleared cache etc, safe mode, and made sure the hardware settings were right. Nothing works. Piece of garbage. Good job screwing up a half decent product. It's crap now. Waste of my time.

I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

The option in the Help menu for "submit feedback" is still present on version 87 but is no longer functional and has been out of service for 3 months.

Is an expected date or version pending to reactivate or will it be removed?

I was using Firefox this morning, and the program crashed. When I restarted, I found I had lost all my passwords. I searched for the "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop--and everywhere else, and there is no such folder on my computer. I tried importing passwords from Safari and that didn't work at all. I am traveling right now and don't have access to my backup disk.

This is the second time this has happened with FF, and I am about to dump the program because of this.

Any ideas?

Fonts won't be correctly recognized by Firefox and text is then displayed garbled (see attached example). I use Firefox 89.0.1 (64-bit) on a MacBook Pro.

I've tried the following to fix this: I've cleaned out my cache and cookies. In Preferences/Languages/Fonts I've changed the san-serif type to Arial (helped some but not all); I've unchecked and then checked again "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selection above." I've started looking at the html code to figure out the font settings but I really just need to have a functioning brower.

Any thoughts? I'd be very grateful. It's impacting my work, and I'm having to use other browers, which function without issues - but I like Firefox! This is a bummer. Thanks!

Its come to the point im considering uninstalling firefox to use chrome exclusively which is something I certainly dont want to do after having been a loyal user for over a decade.

Thanks for any help.

Beginning in the last month I receive the message below when attempting to connect to a site. Different sites with different server information. However the content for the site is shown. Why is this suddenly happening? The message copied below is an example.

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at bfea48bd16cfe97e11fb3f6ce1174c3d.safeframe.googlesyndication.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.

Hello, I would like to know how I can avoid having to enter an account authorization code everytime I sign into my laptop. Everytime my laptop hibernates or shuts down I come to find that though I login first try (with password), EVERY SINGLE TIME I for some reason have to go retrieve a code from my email to complete sign in. This is a huge pet peeve and I want to know what to do.

I called American Airlines and there is no problem on their end. Why is this happening all of a sudden and only for this one website.

Lately (as of which version, I'm not sure), I've been noticing that if I enter a URL in the address bar of a tab that already has a page open, instead of going to the new URL I entered, Firefox will refresh the current page instead. This happens A LOT and is pretty annoying. Wondering if this happens to anyone else.
