I am having a lot of problems lately getting onto sites to shop that I used to be able to go to. One is "www.Boscovs.com" ... There are others, but this one just came up. What is going on? Did something goofy take place with the latest update? Thanks for any help ... This is just SO aggravating. Sincerely, Carolyn Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.boscovs.com/" on this server. This also happens when I use Microsoft Edge

How can I force Firefox to ask for my primary password every time I want to access a stored password?

Due to organizational requirements, I need to have Firefox ask for my primary password every time I want to log in to a site using a stored password, as opposed to having it ask once in a while. Changing the value of signon.masterPasswordReprompt.timeout_ms to a small value does not appear to have the desired effect.

About 3 months (or so!) ago, Firefox stopped saving the setting:

Logins and Passwords

   Ask to save logins and passwords

I set it for it to always ask, if I don't, any saved passwords won't load when signing into a site. Now, each day, or anytime I close Firefox, I have to click on Settings and click inside the box. Once I do that, the passwords will load for me.

I have untinstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

Any suggestions or do you know if anyone else has experienced this issue?

Firefox acting weird for past week

Hello, I am a bit concerned, as Firefox never before acted this way. Has this been reported? 0. Few weeks ago computer froze, after restart, bookmarks that I had made new had disappeared and old ones appeared, as if firefox reversed to previous saved setting from hour before freezing of computer.

Now, the main ones that have been happening during last week: 1. Firefox randomly downloaded (twice during last week) some random file with random letters, for example " H3jO5Ni4m.htm". It was always one file, that was a ".htm" file, and it had 0 bites. I uploaded the file to virustotal and it brought me to this: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/e3b0c44298fc1c149afbf4c8996fb92427ae41e4649b934ca495991b7852b855/detection

I then googled about this specific problem with Firefox downloading a 0 byte .htm file, and it has been happening to people for last 6 months, not many cases, but some,still. Peoples comments implied that this is harmless and that it is a bug of Firefox.

2. Firefox today,about half an hour ago logged me out of most websites, not all, but most. Firefox never ever behaved this way and it happens only to Firefox, not any other browser that I own.

During last week I scanned my computer in both normal and safe mode with: Eset Online Scanner (a one time useantivirus program), Avast, Roguekiller, Malwarebytes, Mbar (Malwarebytes anti malware), and never found anything. I consider these programs most reliable, and have been using them for years.

Is it a bug of this specific version of Firefox please? I have version 105.0.1 (64-bit) and problem 1 and 2 happened since then I think.

Hey friends,

I'm experiencing an issue with Firefox only (Edge and Chrome are fine) with a specific site/certificate and was hoping someone had some advice.

The site in question is github.ourcompany.com, which has a certificate issued with the following:

Subject Common Name: *.github.ourcompany.com

And the following Subject Alt Names: DNS: *.github.ourcompany.com DNS: *.github DNS: github.ourcompany.com DNS: github IP: 10.x.x.x

When I browse to https://github.ourcompany.com, I get a SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN message, even though github.ourcompany.com is a valid SAN. I'm wondering if this is to do with validation rules regarding wildcard SANs, or perhaps the order of the SANs. Has anyone seen this before?

Hello,

In the last week, I have noticed an error message on a site that I usually log onto, and am unable to do so which looks like this: Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.plus.net. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem. I have contacted the web site owners, and they have said it is my browser as the site is working correctly.

The second issue is that I am able to log onto my gumtree homepage, but unable to access my account due to the following: I have checked my Firefox browser and it is running the latest version 105.0.1 I have noted that on the bottom left of the page when trying to access my messages or manage my ads the following is happening but times out after 15 seconds: Unable to perform tls handshake to sa.gumtree

Gumtree have said this is a browser issue, so that is why I am contacting you for assistance.

I look forward to hearing from you, at your earliest convenience.

Best regards, Arvin Kumar
