I have noticed that recently a lot of well-known and trusted sites(eg- youtube) are showing connection not secure (Parts of page are not secure such as images and any information that you share may be leaked -passwords etc) . Sometimes when I reload the site, it again shows connection secure.

Is this a glitch or something to be worried about and is there a solution?

All. The answers to all the issues with security errors like SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE end up with "contact the web owner". In many cases for me, these web sites are not internet sites but hardware HTTP servers (e.g. like a system's BMC or iLO) and there is no system administrator to contact. The web sites open up fine in Chrome. There has to be other solutions (like setting an exception) to work around these issues. Eddy

I got a new computer and tried to sign into Firefox. I was able to do so but, when I go to see my passwords Firefox wants a "Primary Password". I was able to sign into Firefox and sync to get my bookmarks but, I cannot get my logins and passwords. Firefox keeps asking for "Primary Password", nothing works. My account email is on the 3 line Firefox start menu. Any help appreciated.

Hello, Every time I open a new Tab a Google page is opened which is great. Bu then when I Google something it always leads me to a Facebook Search Engine which looks like a scam and it only brings me to a Facebook search. Attached is a screenshot of what it looks like.

Any ideas how to remove this?

This is only happening on one of my home computers and only on Firefox which makes me think it is a bug.

I do use other Browsers with no problem.

So...

I was on y2mate, wanted to download a video, then uselnk happenned: it redirected me to the page, Firefox froze for about 10 seconds then, everything became normal again... except that the y2mate and redirected pages closed themselves. Even if, for the moment, everything seems to be normal, I already launched a scan with my antivirus (paid one), for me, it is a bit strange. Even if Firefox froze sometimes (probably because of my computer), this time, it was suspect, just the time to download something. I searched up what are these redirected and it appears that's a virus/adware or something like that.

Anyway, could someone tell me what should I do? I know that I should check out the extensions, but I have already done that, and nothing suspicious, only extensions that I have installed before.

Ps: sorry for the possible orthographical/syntax mistakes, english is not my native language.

Hi, I just discovered a problem setting secondary email when both primary and secondary is on the same domain, gmail.com.

Following the instructions:

Set up secondary email

The error that come up says that the secondary email must be different than my account email, but it is, the only common thing is the domain.

So this is a bug, please fix.

Hi, I'm unable to change my Firefox Account password.

I navigate to the Manage Account page, click Change next to Password and enter my old and new password and nothing happens. The page gives no indication that the change has applied and my password remains the same.

I have also tried this in a private window, on Google Chrome and on my phone and the same thing happens.

I was on Ancestry.com and went to download a GEDCOM file from my family tree work. I had developer tools turned on by coincidence, and noticed that when I clicked the download file button, a network communication was sent to Facebook! Appears to be a 5.6Kb 'beacon'. I don't see that behavior from Chrome. Why is Firefox telling Facebook what I'm up to on Ancestry.com?

I'm trying to authorize a site to use my location, which I'd already done via the pop-up menu, although that obviously made no difference, as there are NO websites whatsoever in the list of websites who've requested it! Not only that, but I can't even add a website to it, either! This is crazy, how are we supposed to ever allow a site to access our location if the pop-up window does nothing, and the preferences won't show any sites, nor allow us to add any????

As Firefox doesn't allow you to prevent updates, is there a way to get the HTTPS switches working, or is this another introduced bug we are supposed to put up with? If I attempt to access my router using 192.168.1.1 Firefox automatically changes the address to https://192.168.1.1. Guess what you morons: NONE OF MY ROUTERS USE HTTPS AND CANNOT BE ACCESSED! Instead I now use Edge which allows what I enter to be used and gives me access. Another reason to dump this crap. Why is it that each and every time I am forced to update: I don't get a choice, I get another reason not to use Firefox. If you charged for this crap the developers would have been sacked long ago. Please don't insult my intelligence by pointing me Privacy & Settings because none of the options make any difference. So when can we expect to get working software?

Hi there,

1. Based on Breach Summary of Firefox Monitor, I have 7 breaches marked as unresolved.

2. Are there any ways to resolved the said breaches, apart from the steps suggested by Firefox Monitor? For example, instead of replacing the weak passwords with the stronger ones, can I simply remove or delete the whole website? Would that help in fixing the data or password breaches issues?

3. I sincerely hope that you could advise me on this problem which has been troubling me for quite sometime.

Best regards, Veon Szu

I am using FF 88.01 on Mac OSx and I have found behavior changes in Firefox that where corrected by closing and reopening FF. An example is a youtube video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wb0FCQug48c which produced an error something like unable to play video no mater how many times I try yet other youtube videos would play. After closing FF then reopening it played.

Can the running configuration of FF be captured for evaluation ?
