I have not been able to successfully authenticate the validity of Firefox 39 on a Mac. Using GPG tools service to validate it gives an error Failed:153. If I perform a command line "gpg --verify SHA512SUMS.asc gpg: assuming signed data in 'SHA512SUMS' gpg: Signature made Wed 1 Jul 03:23:48 2015 EDT using RSA key ID 15A0A4BC gpg: Good signature from "Mozilla Software Releases <releases@mozilla.org>" [unknown] gpg: Note: This key has expired! Primary key fingerprint: 2B90 598A 745E 992F 315E 22C5 8AB1 3296 3A06 537A

    Subkey fingerprint: 5445 390E F5D0 C2EC FB8A  6201 057C C3EB 15A0 A4BC

Which is not valid since the public key has expired. Where can i get a valid public key? Has anyone performed the validation of Firefox successfully? If so how?

When I'm watching videos on kissanime, a grey, dotted line appears around the video when I have it "marked". It disappears when I click somewhere else, but then I can't use the space bar to pause my video, which is proving to be annoying. Anyone how I can remove it in a simple manner? I'm using a flash player. The dotted line does not appear on youtube videos.

After upgrade to v41.0 my Macbook has been hanging. My suspicions point towards the latest version upgrade. Reset FF but ReportCrashes persist. Console errors show many Firefox events such as :

9/27/15 10:44:34.047 ReportCrash[643]: Invoking spindump for pid=527 wakeups_rate=203 duration=222 because of excessive wakeups


What needs to be reconfigured to reduce wakeup events?

When I go to Firefox site https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#en-US it tells me "Congrats! You’re using the latest version of Firefox." Yet I am running firefox version 44 not 44.02. This is on MacOS Yosemite.

Has anyone else had this problem? How do I fix it?

Using Stylish I’ve changed the Bookmark and Bookmark Folder icons in the Firefox toolbar and menu (with base64 coded images), but this doesn’t change the icons in other places:

- the Bookmark Manager - the Bookmark dialogue box - the Bookmark Sidebar

They still use the standard icons. What CSS should I use to change them too?

I really hope this issue isn't impossible to solve. The reason for wanting to disable the private browsing should be obvious - you may have kids in your house using your computer and chances are you don't want them to have the option of going places they shouldn't without their parents knowing about it.

An answer would be greatly appreciated!

We are receiving this message from Ebay when attempting to list a product (see below). Any suggestions how to work around it please? Thank you.


Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to scgi.ebay.co.uk because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

scgi.ebay.co.uk has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Hello,

Recently I cannot seem to load any YouTube videos on the first try. Sometimes they will load after numerous refreshings, but for the most part they will always show the error message after loading for a while. I have tried deleting my preferences, refreshing Firefox, trying in safe mode, disabling all plug-ins, using a flash-blocking add-on, and nothing has seemed to work. YouTube also seems to work fine for Safari and Chrome.

Does anyone have any ideas?
