FF v66 duckduckgo search engine I enter a search and FF sits there using lots of CPU power and gets no results. Copying the URL to Chrome gets immediate results. Switching FF search to Google gets immediate results.

WHY? Is it time to switch default to Chrome AGAIN?

I notice some websites with Full secure or Mixed passive insecure content ? Like Frontier website homepage with Full secure but click with Login and it change to Mixed insecure. How can I use Full secure ALL websites rather than Mixed insecure ? Here two different images. look at URL address Homepage w/ full with green icon and other Login with Mixed grey / yellow icon at same website. Mixed insecure is not safe, right  ?? Sorry for my fair English.

Dear Mozilla I have encountered the "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER" error when trying to access google.com Unfortunately, Mozilla Support sites only explain the origin of the problem. No solution to solving the issue is given. I can't even proceed to the website accepting the risk. I have found other pages with suggested solutions but none worked. I tried deleting the Cert9.db file which didn't work. Other solution are for antivirus on windows which doesn't help since I run Ubuntu with no antivirus. I'd greatly appreciate any help. Thx in advance

I am running Selenium automated tests in Firefox. The problem is that, when running tests on Firefox, the browser is open in "Browser is under remote control" mode and then the session cookies are not kept when the browser is closed.

If I authenticate on my web app out of this "Browser is under remote control" mode, the ai_session cookie is kept as expected. It only is discarded when I am on that mode.

Taking that into account:

1. Is there a way to configure Firefox to keep session cookies even when running in the "Remote control" mode? 2. When configuring Selenium WebDriver, is there some option that allows me to force the browser to keep the session cookies?

Hi I've been a happy Firefox user for many years now. For no obvious reason, the ebay signin page stopped working yesterday, 26 March 2019, when using Firefox. It also doesn't work on Windows Explorer. But I have just downloaded Chrome (on ebay customer service advice) and found that the ebay signin page works fine on Chrome. I don't want to have to use Chrome - it is a product of the Evil Empire which works to enslave humanity. Please, please would you harness the mighty power of the Mozilla Monster to stamp on whatever vile bug the Ebay/Google Evil Empire have just created? Trusting in the Mighty Mozilla, and with many thanks, RWaddington

Ich möchte bei meinem neuen "Speedport Smart" die Werkseinstellungen ändern unter http://speedport.ip Leider erscheint die Warnung: "speedport.ip verwendet ein ungültiges Sicherheitszertifikat. Dem Zertifikat wird nicht vertraut, weil es vom Aussteller selbst signiert wurde. Fehlercode: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT Was soll ich machen? Danke für jeden Rat.

I like to change the router codes of my newly installed Speed Port from the German Telekom company at the site: "http://speedport.ip" Unfortunately the certificate of the product is not trusted by Firefox with the following error message: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT could I risk to ignore it?

Thank you for your advice and help

I am trying very hard to use Firefox Quantum and move on from Firefox 56, and the one thing that most drives me crazy is the single row for tabs.

I've tried implementing workarounds with the userChrome.css, such as the one found here: https://github.com/Izheil/Quantum-Nox-Firefox-Dark-Full-Theme/tree/master/Multirow%20and%20other%20functions/Multirow%20tabs — but all my attempts have failed.

Does anyone know of another solution?

It's been horrible using a browser with only one row for tabs. It's very hard to find the tabs I want and to manage my open tabs, even using the menu which shows all of them. I often have no idea of how many tabs I have open, and I often end up with multiple tabs for the same page because I am not aware that it is already open or because it would take too long to find it.

With Firefox 56 and Tab Mix Plus, I usually had around 40 to 50 tabs open most of the time, and when I'm researching stuff this number easily gets to the hundreds for a while. With Firefox Quantum I have been unable to manage my tabs properly: I end up with much more tabs than I really need and it's hard to keep then organized.

I feel like I am struggling to save a marriage that can't be saved. I don't want to leave Firefox, but it's becoming unbearable. Feel free to suggest another browser as a solution to my problem.

I need help determining what is causing Firefox to not display certain content in webpages and is putting a checkered grid in place of external content.

See screenshot of image below. What is causing the checkered grid to show. I see the image for the briefest of time when loading the webpage, then the checkered grid appears in the place of the image. This is not the only online site for which this occurs. If I disable all my plugins, I get a similar issue. If I turn off content blocking, I still get this issue.

I am using ublock origin, and umatrix.

If I load the page in a private view, then the checkered grid disappears. If I create a new tab and load the page, the check grid is now gone too, but if I reload the page with the checkered gray grid pattern, the checkered grid pattern is still there. The inconsistency is baffling me.

We've had this issue more than once before, but I always forget how we 'fixed' it, and since good ole' Windows 10 keeps updating about once a month, and Firefox continually updates all the time, it seems to happen too often that Pandora online music (with our paid account so we don't have to hear commercials) seems to stop after EVERY tune. My question is: how do I fix this - again? I KNOW I did this once before, but here we are again after the latest update to Windows 10 today... Jeez... I think I want to go back to Windows 7 because this did not seem to happen as often as it does with Windows 10...

As per the title, I can no longer access Amazon.com after the latest FIrefoc update. As soon as my update completed, I tired to access Amazon.com but to no avail. I get the following error:

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.amazon.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.amazon.com 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.

I can access other sites, including Amazon.ca and other shopping sites. How do I resolve this problem?

With this new update, I am now connected immediately to an Internet website, which is not how I previously had FireFox setup. I wish to have FireFox open up a page where I can select which Webpage that I regularly use or have the possibility to find a new webpage. I use to have Yahoo.com as one of the selections that I was able to make in the past, but for some reason FireFox has refused all efforts by me to get Yahoo.com included. How is it done? My past history is hidden so that I can't get to websites that I use quite often.

when ever I switch from one user to another user, when I come back to the first user Firefox won't let me change Tabs or switch to other open pages. Which can only be solved by quitting Firefox. I can reproduce this behaviour every time. In some instances it is showing the beach ball and has to be 'Force quit'. I can't reproduce this it seems random.

I went to some website that asked me to run Adobe Flash Player and now ever since I did the videos on youtube wont start playing until I click on them to. I want to set them so they start playing on their own again.

I tried turning on autoplay on youtube, but that didn't help. I tried going to the add-ons and changing to Always Activate, but that didn't work. I even tried Never Activate. I then looked at the Adobe Flash Player settings within the Control Panel, but nothing there helped.

I'm now considering uninstalling the program, but I'm confused, is it Adobe Flash Player that I need to uninstall or Adobe Shockwave Player? And, will this make it so videos don't play at all?
