While I am aware that the URL key-lock has a red line through it when a website has an insecure connection, is it still safe to visit it?

The website in question is a care home facility but no personal information is being entered (I am just viewing information on the facility).

Thanks in advance.

Everything was fine till today. Smarkets website looks like crap and only this one. What's interesting, it looks all right when I untick allow pages to use their own fonts button. That's strange. Unfortunately, the rest of website do not look good. I cannot use Smarkets anymore as this is just unreadable. Please compare the same website open i FF and Chrome.

Since I started using firefox all my add ons get uninstalled for no reason from time to time. It's like the browser decides to wipe them all out and I have to reinstall them again, one by one. I tried creating an account and syncing, but the problem persists. And it happens on both my 2 computers.

I sought without answer to see how to PREVENT restoring previous sessions, freezing my computer because FF did not clear previous sessions, internet access freezing when social media sites weren't cleared, as they used to be. And then, reading the solution on, how to access restoresession options, I come upon about:config and search browser.session I see the problem. Instead of setting options to clear previous history, FF now has uncountable options which - hide browsers I've deletes, like Bing - maintain restoring sessions up to 5, 10, 32 times, even though I've set the option to never - keep data I wanted deleted, in Top sites, in pocket, in other options - set Google as the default translator even though I've chosen not to use it I am seriously disappointed in Firefox and Mozilla. I have used it since I found it one- two ? decades ago because it WASN'T wired into the top-heavy, data-excessive, intrusive-spying behemoths of Google and Microsoft. Did Google buy you out, or something? I do notice that the wonderful creative-commons data options have been swallowed up by those icons of not-for-profit and community sharing, google-android, every for-profit phone companies (ATT, Verizon,etc.) How sad and ironic. I found my solution was, select 0 for many, many browser.?? options and deleting the history I found in various switches. Posting this to share my disillusion.

Everytime I go to facebook before I sign in a grey overlay appears on the sign in page and when I scroll down this message appears. I'm getting tired of it. Does anyone know how I can bypass all this and sign straight in like I used to be able to. I also find it strange that I seem to be the only person experiencing this as when I search for similar instances I get nothing. This started about a week ago, I have to press 'accept all' all the time, why can't this be automatic. Thanks for any help.

I set process limit to 1. Firefox runs 5+. Pray tell what does setting the process limit do exactly? Also Firefox says it sets the process limit automatically to optimize system specs. I've installed FF on machines with specs ranging from low budget build to godbox yet it always defaults to 4 processes. Then runs more. Is it all BS? Do tell please? (Searched Support for these topics. Gave up after 10 pages. Appologies if they're redundant)

I am not able to figure out on how to open the respective add-ons User Interface.

  • I have installed some add-ons like 'HTTPS Everywhere' , 'Nord vpn' etc...
  • When I visit the add-ons tab in the menu section on the upper right section of Firefox, it does not show on how to run it or open it.
  • I have been searching this on the internet but couldn't find any information...

Hope the Firefox team will help, Thank you

I have been getting this error lately. Later I noticed it only seems to happend when Firefox is running. literly can't find anything online what so ever. So this is baffeling. I don't believe I have done anything to make it happen. I have had like 1,350 tabs before Firefox had an update (and it fked it up) so it might of been some update. Firefox hasn't been nearly that good sense. Im prob at 150-200 tabs right now and I have never seen this message. Also firefox LOVES ram. I have 16GB and over time it EATS it. like 12gb and when i hit 99% the computer slows down of course and I have to restart. All bc of firefox... see pic

To outline my setup, I am using Windows 7 Ultimate with Service pack 1. I tried applying a third-party theme to Windows 7 Ultimate, but it didn't work right. So, I reset Windows theme. Then, I tried applying a theme to Firefox itself and it works except for the "x", "minimize", and "maximize" buttons. What is going wrong? It may be a minor problem, but I like things to work right.

Transferred Firefox and other programs to new computer; however, my Google toolbar (especially bookmarks of concern) did not transfer. I downloaded it again (more than once); it shows up on my Tools/Addo-ons as enabled but does not show up on the View/Toolbar section (never since new computer). I uninstalled and reinstalled, but no luck. What now?
