So this happened today: - Firefox did an update while I was playing. - Suddenly I noticed the icon became a blank page and when I clicked it Windows informed me, that firefox isn't on my PC. (Uninstalled itself for some reason?) - Since then Firefox won't ask if I want to save my tabs so I have to manually restore previous session every time. ShowQuitwarning is set ot be enabled. I tried deleting/renaming sessionstore.js and prefs.js - When I restored ShowQuitwarning it says it isn't a boolean, but a string variable. I assume something got corrupted, by have no idea what and how to restore besides a full reinstall? (In the meantime the option seems to have vanished fully, it is not present in about:config)

Ever since I upgraded to Firefox 63, several trusted websites have stopped loading; instead I get sent to an error page with:

Your connection is not secure

The website tried to negotiate an inadequate level of security.

<www.thestar.com> uses security technology that is outdated and vulnerable to attack. An attacker could easily reveal information which you thought to be safe. The website administrator will need to fix the server first before you can visit the site.

Error code: NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY


This also occurs with https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/63.0.1/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Installer.exe

Is the problem at my end or theirs? If the former, what do I need to do to return to the behaviour for FF 62?

I've installed the latest version of Firefox. Firefox Quantum 63 x64 and ReCaptchas don't work properly. It has been installed on a fresh Windows 10 Pro and Firefox it's at the same time a fresh install like I'm showing on the video at the end of this post. No firewall, no antivirus, no addons, nothing that should stop Firefox from automatically do the ReCaptcha. But every time you click on I'm not a Robot it always prompts you to do a puzzle.

Please Firefox, fix this issue. It is pretty frustrating to have to answer every time a puzzle that are ridiculously annoying or having to switch to Google Chrome to use those kind of pages that ask you to answer a ReCaptcha.

However, if there is anyone that has a solution, please share it with me or all of us. Because I've been trying to find an answer and haven't find one that works. So I will appreciate a good fix for it.

Thanks in advance to the community and hopefully Firefox finds a fix because for what I've read it's a persistent issue with other older versions too.

Firefox 63.0 x64 not preserving window size and launches taller than screen size

I've tried deleting the xul file and other recommended solutions.

I have both bookmarks and command toolbars enabled.

Display is 3840x2160, Microsoft Windows 10 x64 has Display Scale and Layout set to change the size of text, apps, and other items at 175%.

Launching Firefox will always launch the window taller than the screen height (2160) having the command bar above the top of the screen and the bottom of the browser below the bottom toolbar.

Resizing and then quitting and relaunching will launch Firefox at resized window size. Firefox settings are set to remove all cookies and cache upon exit. Exiting with File->Exit or clicking the top right X both seem to work.

After some period of time, typically after a screen lock or reboot, a new launch will revert back to the old size that goes off the screen.

I need to figure out how to make the resize sticky.

Hi there, since some days i encounter problems with downloading pdf-files. I tried this link http://personendatenbank.germania-sacra.de/books and tried to download a file by clicking "PDF" at any of the links there. I wouldn´t work. I see the download in the history (strg-j) but there is no progress. I encountered the same problem at another site.

Is there a problem with downloadlinks beginning with http:// ???

In Chrome for example the link works without any problems

I have added https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gfycat-click-to-gif/

It shows up in the Extensions section under "about:addons" and it is enabled. However in my toolbar, there is no icon for it and therefore I cannot use it. I've tried using the "Customize" feature but none of my extensions show up there, so I cannot drag them to the toolbar.

I would attach screenshots, but even that isn't working on this support page form.

I seem to be infected with some piece of malware/virus that keeps replacing my homepage and inserting a web address into my list of search engines. This is what gets inserted in both areas:

https://goto-searchitnow.global.ssl.fastly.net/v1/hp?aid=189&data=aWlkPTIwJnVpZD00MDc0NzQ2NA==&tb=1

Does anyone recognize it and how can I block or delete it permanently.

I'm also getting a "Close All Tabs" alert periodically (that keeps popping up after each attempt to cancel it) even though I've made no attempt to close out of Firefox.

After dealing with Advanced Mac Cleaner virus recently, I hope I don't have another battle on my hands.

First,I'm french... I have been searching for a while now. I just don't find the answer to my problem. The answer is probably there, in front of me, maybe it's just the terms used to describe the problem/solution I don't understand.

I'll try to make myself as clear as possible.

As you can see on the image, It took me a while to organise (customize) the 24 Top Site on three lines.

The question is :

How can I save this page so I won't have to reorganise all 24 icons and links next time I reinstall firefox. This page won't synchronize with the bookmarks when reinstalling the browser. There mus be a way so save this page, isn'it ?

Thanks for reading me.  :)

A few days ago, I was testing a dark theme related add-on, but since uninstalling it, have had this issue where my theme seems to be stuck as the Dark theme that naturally comes with Firefox. When attempting to change my theme in the customize window, mousing over the Default theme does show the proper colors for it, but selecting it still shows the Dark theme colors. I tried examining my Add-ons manager, where it shows that I am still using the Default theme, despite the colors clearly belonging to the Dark theme. I can freely change to the Light theme without issue, but for some reason, the Default one refuses to load properly. I have since tried uninstalling all my Add-ons, deleting my profiles, and uninstalling Firefox before restarting my computer, but to no avail. The Add-on I was examining initially was the Dark Night Mode add-on. Examining the page info, it does say it is not perfect, and their home page says that there are complex issues with getting it to work with Firefox, but I was unable to find more information on this offhand, nor any descriptions of scenarios like mine. I believe the initial settings for my Default theme came from some setting based off my color scheme I have set for my computer themes in general, based off my background, but I was unable to find more information on this at the time. The screenshots I am including are of my Add-on manager showing that I am using the default theme, the customize menu showing the Default theme when highlighted in the drop down menu to change it, and the result that displays when the Default theme is selected. Any ideas on why this issue is occurring, and how to fix it, would be appreciated.

Google Maps is now blurry, since the last update it seems. I cant be sure its the update but I think this is the first time I used Google Maps since the last update, which I have set at automatic. It's readable, generally, but clearly something is wrong.

A search doesn't seem to find recent problems like this, most info I find on this problem is old, even dating back to 2013.

The text in the info panes, etc is fine, just the map is blurry or fuzzy, especially on secondary roads.

Google earth satellite images look fine, except the route numbers on the roads are blurry like on maps

64 bit Firefox version 63.0 installs in Program Files folder instead of Program Files (x86) folder

This is not a question; it is meant to help others.

Dell Inspiron 5759, which is a 64 bit machine. Windows 10 is up-to-date.

The default Firefox installer download puts Firefox in the wrong folder on this machine, resulting in bad behavior from Windows 10.

The default download page, https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/, downloads Firefox Installer.exe 18.5.0.0, which installs in C:\Program Files\.

To get Firefox to install in C:\Program Files (x86)\ you have to download it from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/, and choose Windows 64-bit. Then you get Firefox Setup 63.0, which automatically installs in C:\Program Files (x86).

Windows's behavior is different when Firefox is running from the different folders. When Firefox is installed in C:\Program Files, Windows 10 Control Panel "Choose default apps by file type" does not list Firefox as an option for .pdf files. When Firefox is installed in C:\Program Files (x86), Firefox is listed as an option.

Greetings All, Have Googled this to no avail. Win 7 Home Premium SP1. When trying to access any site on FF (Ver. 62.0.3) getting error


Unexpected response from server

Firefox doesn’t know how to communicate with the server.

   Check to make sure your system has the Personal Security Manager installed.
   This might be due to a non-standard configuration on the server.


Internet explorer working fine on this computer. Have tried "Refresh Firefox" and "Restart with add-ons disabled" In their troubleshooting wizard. I Have to avoid un-install - re-install as I am trying to help an elderly neighbor and she does not have ANY ! of her passwords written down. Any thoughts suggestions greatly appreciated. Cheers !
