I updated to FF 73.0.1 a couple days ago and now when I navigate to a PDF file, it no longer will Preview in Firefox. Instead, it goes to the Save File option.

I've tried setting it in the Options/Applications and all the other choices work fine except the Preview in Firefox.

I am completely unable to view the web page for tumblr when I sign in, getting this error: "The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www.tumblr.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I have cleared the cache, deleted cookies, cleared the site history, checked cookie permissions, and updated firefox and the error is still happening. Help!

Chrome and Firefox cannot load site on HTTPS, Firefox throws PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR, but Internet Explorer and Edge can

I read related posts on this "PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR" error such as https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1281840 and followed their suggestions without luck.

-Not using DoH -Tried new profile, new FF installation, load site over HTTPS from multiple locations -No AV on workstation

I have a web app hosted on Azure Government which was recently patched on 03/02/2020 with FEB 2020 Windows OS patches and all of a sudden FF (and Chrome, Safari and Opera) cannot load the site over HTTPS, but they can over HTTP. Interestingly, IE and Edge can load the site on HTTP and HTTPS without issues.

Curl and OpenSSL can "load" the site over HTTPS with no issues.

Azure support mentioned the issue is on FF (and Chrome, Safari and Opera), so I'm here looking for assistance.

I used Browserling to test FF (and Chrome, Safari and Opera) with different versions including the latest version and get the same result, cannot load the HTTPS site.

When loading the site over HTTPS, but using the IP address instead of the hostname, FF throws a warning "SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN" as expected. After accepting risk and continue, FF throws PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR.

I do believe the issue is on the Azure web app, so I run Qualys SSL Server Test against the web app, see links below for the report images (cannot upload the PDF file), can you review and point out if there is any encryption ciphers supported by the server, but not supported by FF, so I can follow up with Azure on this?

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

I recently had a computer crash. Thankfully, I was able to save my files, including my old Firefox profile. Trouble is, when I try to restore that profile, I can't get my old browsing history to hang around for longer than about a minute, even though all my other settings are in place.

To be crystal clear about what I'm doing and experiencing:

1. I have my old profile saved on a flash drive. I replace the contents of the existing folder in AppData > Firefox > Profiles with the contents of my old profile from the flash drive. 2. I open Firefox to my old profile's bookmarks, settings, homepage, etc, INCLUDING my browsing history. It's all there. 3. I close Firefox, wait ~30 seconds and reopen it. My bookmarks etc, INCLUDING my browsing history, is still there. 4. I close Firefox again, wait another 30 seconds, and reopen Firefox. My bookmarks etc. are there, EXCLUDING my history, which is gone, and there's only a folder for "Today" with my homepage in it and nothing else.

I've done this process several times with identical results. It won't erase my history while Firefox is open, but if I close the browser and then reopen it again after (approximately) 60 seconds has passed, my history is gone. I'd very much like to have my history back and not have it constantly delete itself every minute or so. How do I fix this?

It's worth noting that I restored this same exact profile on my last machine several years ago, and didn't have this problem.

So yeah, I don't know why but since yesterday it has been acting strange. I haven't tinkered with anything if my memory serves right. Whenever I try to open a website or the Preferences page or anything -- it is blank! I can't open new tabs too. I tried various solutions like no Hardware Acceleration, refreshing and even re-installation. However, what is weird is, I can use Firefox alright with Window's Safe Mode (not Firefox's, Window's).

I tried clearing AppData and some other stuff and am getting no response. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

Several years before, I had an adblocker add-on with a feature to define own filter rules.

With that feature, I was able to block parts of often visited web pages with some few mouse clicks only.

Unfortunately, I don't remember, which adblocker and which additional addon I used at that time.

How can I find back that solution for me?

I own and manage the administration of a Magento 2 website and there is an option within some specific products for customers to select an emblem to have engraved on the product. The customer is able to select their choice of emblem and the selected emblem is added to their Basket so we know what engraving is required. However, whilst Firefox shows the emblem choice in a drop-down menu the customer is unable to select it. However, this selection process works fine on Safari. Why can't customers using Firefox make that selection?

Hello!

I have been using an add-on to download certain live broadcasted video. It did this by downloading the audio and the video as separate files, that I then put together outside of Firefox. I don't know if this is the right place to ask but since I can't get any further than the first step this time I thought I'd start here.

The add-on no longer works so I thought I'd open the "Inspect Element" page, go to "Network" and leave it open with the live video playing. There were lots of small files loading in, ending in .m4a and .m4v. Too many sort and download manually so I tried right clicking and hit "Save All As Har"

So now I got a .har file of around 100 MB and I wonder if this has those small pieces that I can do something with? Thanks
