Did Firefox 74 introduce a minimum windows size? Can it be disabled?

Hi,

I like to work with side-by-side Firefox windows, with one of the windows being far slimmer (horizontally) than the other. Since I updated to Firefox 74.0 today, I can't resize the windows as I like to do. I can resize them, but it's like there's a minimum fixed size to what I can resize it to and then it locks and doesn't go any slimmer from there (maybe so the browser controls don't overlap?). That fixed size is far too big for my use case, i.e. I absolutely need it slimmer. I'm not entirely sure if the previous Firefox version contained a fixed minimum size, but if it did, it was much smaller (it allowed controls to overlap, which wasn't a problem for me)

Is there a setting that I can change in Firefox 74 so that I can make the windows as slim as I require again?

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?

When I key www.<website>.com in location bar and hit enter, Firefox uses http://www.<website>.com, not httpS://www.<website>.com, to find the website. Most of the time the http:// version does not resolve to a website. It just hunts and hunts and hunts. This same thing happens many times when I click on a link in gmail which I open in Firefox.

Since we are all supposed to be using httpS:// these days, why doesn't Firefox default to https://?

Is there some setting that I'm missing?

Thanks, Caitlin

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

Security consultants have advised that cipher suites using the SHA1 hash are no longer considered secure and should not be enabled.

Using the nmap tool we can identify which cipher suites use the SHA1 hash.

On our webserver, (IIS version 8.5 on Windows 2012 R2 ) if we eliminate cipher suites that contain the SHA1 hash, the Firefox browser cannot browse the site. Error displayed = Secure Connection Failed - PR_CONNECT_ABORTED_ERROR We tested versions up to Firefox ( v75.0 ).

Other browsers such as Chrome and IE have no issues browsing our site with the SHA1 hash disabled.

Once the SHA1 hash is enabled, Firefox works fine. Seeking a solution that will satisfy the security folks and our Firefox users.

Hello,

since the last update (v63.0, Windows) I have an issue that makes Firefox not usable. I hope you can help me.

Every time I open a new webpage, over a hyperlink or manually, Firefox takes 5-8 seconds until it starts to load the page. It seems like Firefox does nearly nothing at this point, there is no traffic going out, no CPU usage etc. There is also no status message in the bottom left corner like "Waiting for https://foobar.com...". After 5-8 seconds Firefox starts to load the page and then it goes very fast. This makes it impossible to use Firefox, because normal activities take a lot of time, because every click takes 5-8 seconds. On chrome on the same PC everything is OK.

I already did nearly everything to reset and clear my Firefox installation, I reinstalled and deleted the Mozilla folder in the AppData directory, the problem still persists. My colleague has the same issue since this update, so it's not only my PC.

I hope you can help me.
