I hav been using my Gmail in Firefox with no problem until about 3 days ago. Now when I try to sign in to my account I get a pop up window which states “This browser or app may not be secure. Try using a different browser. Etc.”

I have tried another browser (chrome) and Gmail works fine, but I like working in Firefox. But at this rate I may dump Firefox and go to another browser.

I have looked through the other support group questions and solutions. I have tried them all and nothing is resolved. Clearing cache, clearing cookies, using a private window, managing data, using forget about this site, generating a new profile, disabling extensions, loading in safe mode, etc.

I have Firefox version 83.0 (64 bit). My operating system is windows 7.

Any other suggestions?

Amazon allowed to change my password in Firefox?

On four occasions during the past three months, Amazon has refused my log in to their site, stating that I've not used the correct password. When this occurs, I look at my 'password box' and can see that the number of characters (the black dots) are of a far greater number than the number of characters in my current password by more than 200. When I go to 'Security' in Firefox to view my password, it has indeed changed to a random selection of 200 plus characters. When I erase these characters and retype my original password, Amazon will accept the change and I can log in.

My question: Although I don't expect anyone to know why Amazon is doing this, I'm baffled as to how Firefox can be manipulated by Amazon so as to change my password.

Has anyone experienced this and is there any advice? I'm hopeful that an actual Amazon tech will have a response to this as well as the community.

Thank you,

Hi:

I am using the Safari browser on my Mac. Suddenly when I wanted to login into the Firefox account I got the 500 Error message that I pasted in the Subject. I am a new user of Firefox, just switched from Safari and I am not computer savvy...

I cannot login, I cannot create another account...

I hope I do not have to go back to Safari.... I have no idea what might cause this problem and what to do. I hope that somebody has the answer. Thanks in advance.

Using FF 80 on Linux I'm getting increasing difficulty with processing pages. At first I assumed senility-onset (user not browser) but recently got feedback from a bank help desk that 'unable to process page at this time' was a browser message, not a site message and he advised using Chrome. Hah! Anyway I tried Chromium and it worked perfectly. Often a similar problem with payPal (not always). What's going on?

In the 'olden days' when Firefox was a new kid on the block there used to be a facility to report web sites that would not work with Firefox. Is it time to resurrect this? Is web design now being taken over by Google rather than (in the 'olden days') Microsoft?

Dear Firefox:

I recently updated the browser.

When I block junk mail, it still comes back. Sometimes an email cannot be received, probably cookies?

The old browser had a blocked email list which could be viewed and unblocked. I cannot find this blocking list to view or an unblocking ability on the new browser. How does one manage blocked email?

Hi. Probably the biggest savings and loan institution in the UK is the Nationwide Building society. 16 million customers and holds £6 Billion in deposits. Their https certificate is issued by ESET. But the information box under the padlock says: 'Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognised by Mozilla'. Why doesn't Mozilla recognised ESET? There are no issues when using MS Edge or Opera. https://www.nationwide.co.uk/

Build 82.0.3 Windows 10.0.18363

I'm a modder and I've been using the script extenders on silverlock for years. It's a common modder's resource for a number of games I play. Now I'm getting a hazardous site warning (site certificate) and, when I accept the risk and continue, I get site not found. Quick fix: close Firefox, open Chrome. I'd rather continue on Firefox, but I guess that's a no-go.
