I use windows 7 and for some reason Firefox 50.1.0 has stopped giving me the facility to click on a contact e-mail link in any web page so that microsoft outlook will open and allow me to use the e-mail link. IE11 has no issues with this but I'd rather use firefox which I have as default. Why will firefox no longer open outlook when I click on a link in a web page?

Several months ago, Firefox stopped saving updated passwords. For instance, I have changed my Amazon password. Every time I go to Amazon it displays my old password (I can tell by the length), and after I manually enter the new password it asks if I want to update the saved password. I click yes but each time I go back it is still the same old password that is stored. This happens on many sites, not just Amazon.

Since my website (https://www.der-bank-blog.de) is configured to http2, users using FF ESR cannot access anymore. They just see a blank screen.

Other browsers and "normal" FF are working fine.

I seems to stay in connection with the cipher Suite. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=975832

User could workarround by changing "aes_256" in the about:config view.

But I need a solution for the backend to avoid loosing users, trying to reach the site e.g. via Google Search.

Any ideas are greatly apreciated

Cheers from Germany

I keep getting a "blocked" message from Avast, my internet security provider. Where is this "updaterex.com" malware virus coming from. The other day my girlfriend told me that I was trying to "video call" her on Facebook, I don't know how to do this, I did not do this. It also said that she was trying to "video call" me, she doesn't know how to do this either.

Do I have a virus in my computer? I ran a scan and all the files are ok, no viruses. Why does this bad file keep trying to attack my computer, its scary. It has happened about 12 times already. I want it gone !!

Firefox Imgur and Flash WIthin imgur there is a button to copy a link to images. Within Firefox that doesn't work properly, at least *I* didn't get it to work properly. Either it doesn't work, or something else is showing up (recently)

Within Chrome, no issues.

I understand that Firefox does not support Flash, but fact is that a lot of sites still have Flash. Believe Chrome and Edge support Flash websites, have a built in Flash or something. Probably they have more control then?

So Firefox is either chasing away their users to the 'competition' (I have Chrome on my pc as well), or users should separately install Flash, which may then be more vulnerable than when Flash is 'built in' (controlled) by the browser.

Either way, it is disappointing.

I understand the policy, I understand that websites should switch to HTML5 but right now, it doesn't help me much.

No.. indeed there is no question here, just frustration.

When I open my course in Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari it works just fine, but in Firefox it does nothing unless I use Ctrl when I click, then it will open in a new tab. Is there something that is missing that is causing this problem that is special to Firefox?

Received a Firefox information box telling me "accessibility not available during multi-process support". It then gave me instructions to go to "about:config" and how to fix the problem by changing the "browser.tabs.remote.force-enable" to "true".

That string does not appear in the list.

The closest to it in alphabetical order is: "browser.tabs.remote.autostart" and "browser.tabs.remote.autostart2".

Any thoughts?

Why am i (or Firefox) not able to use some (stronger) cipher suites on certain sites? ... yes, they are supporting them, checked on ssllabs-test

Can anyone enlighten me on this? I do not want to complain about anything i just try to understand what and why is this happening. (I have nothing better to do today,sorry.)

Under the "green lock" -pictures- the ciphers (i think) are TLS1.0 (ex.:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA) based on these software's lists: - OpenSSL - GnuTLS - LibreSSL

So i tried to disable these ciphers (AES128&256CBC-SHA1) on the "about:config" page and leave AESGCM&CHACHA20 ciphers. Then comes the warning: "SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP" , on sites which normally support AESGCM suites.


There are some "missing" (mostly AESCBC-SHA256/SHA384) options from the config page (just for me?), does Firefox support them?:

- ECDHE-RSA-AES128(CBC)-SHA256 -The banking site supports this, tested on https://observatory.mozilla.org & https://www.ssllabs.com (but not available by me, must use CBC-SHA1 instead) - ECDHE-RSA-AES256(CBC)-SHA256 - ECDHE-RSA-AES256(CBC)-SHA384 - ECDHE-RSA-CAMELLIA128(GCM&CBC)-SHA256 - ECDHE-RSA-CAMELLIA256(GCM&CBC)-SHA384

- DHE-RSA-AES128(GCM)-SHA256 - DHE-RSA-AES256(CBC)-SHA256 - DHE-RSA-AES256(CBC)-SHA384 - DHE-RSA-CAMELLIA128&256(GCM&CBC)-SHA256 - DHE-RSA-CAMELLIA256(GCM)-SHA384

- ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128(CBC)-SHA256 - ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256(CBC)-SHA384 - ECDHE-ECDSA-CAMELLIA128(GCM&CBC)-SHA256 - ECDHE-ECDSA-CAMELLIA256(GCM&CBC)-SHA384


Also https://www.gog.com supports: - TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 and TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 - https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=gog.com&s=193.59.178.35

-Firefox supports those too but i can't use them. If RSA-AES128-SHA and RSA-AES256-SHA are disabled the page won't load but it should because of AESGCM is supported on both side.

Why does Firefox switch back to CBC-SHA1 ciphers in these sites? Is it a server-side fault or Firefox "needs help" with this? - Are there any addons or settings that could force the cipher-order? - On Mozilla's Support site (here) everything is fine "i can play" between CBC and GCM (-picture-).

Any help,recommendation,explanation or suggestion appreciated.

All information is lost. Was away from my computer for an hour and came back to firefox being FRESHLY installed. (noone home or has access to this computer.) Its screen asked if I wanted to import bookmarks from another browser. I DONT USE ANY OTHER. This is the THIRD time this has happened! Its lost everything. AGAIN. I may have to stop using Firefox and go to chrome. This is ridiculous. No other crash on my computer, no other updates, no changes at all, except this. If this isnt fixed, for the last time, Im leaving Mozilla.

A pop up window comes on my screen and says something like 'we strongly urge you to update..... ' and then lists the current version number. When I check to see what version I have, it already is the latest. I have had identity theft and am very leery of these notices when Firefox says it automatically updates--if so then why do I get these requests? I am running Win10. What is NPWLPG?

Bonjour,

  having issue with flash and simple playlist shuffle handling by youtube I decided to give HTML5 a try.

Now, my playlist seems to be working good (most of the time anyway!) but after a couple of videos I end up with only a black screen within youtube but still hearing the music (at least!).

I am writting this because I had the same issue many, many months, if not years ago. I have deactivated Video Acceleration within Firefox which fix the problem for a little while (I can now see a couple of videos before I get the black screeen).

What is puzzling me is how come, years after youtube switched to html5, this problem is still around and not fixed!?

Is there any way to fix the issue!? Is this a Firefox issue? Youtube issue?

I'm running Windows 10 64bits, fully patched and latets release of Firefox.

What is the source of the notification I've seen several times lately that says "Earn stars. Get a gift. Check it out."?

Has anyone else seen this, whether you know the source of it or not?

I'm told by BW on the @Firefox that Mozilla would never send such a notice, but I don't believe him.

I think it's part of the "Browse Free Or Die" promotion that's run multiple times, which I've seen today and several times recently.

BW of @Firefox on Twitter says the Browse Free Or Die" promotion has ended, but I've seen the promo for it today, as well as recently.

The Browse Free Or Die promo is mentioned at http://www.ghacks.net/2016/10/17/mozillas-browse-free-or-die-problematic/ and at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1310479

BW of @Firefox said the notification does not come from Mozilla and must thus come from malware, and suggests a long and tedious process of hunting for and removing malware. I think they' are completely off base.

I can't find much of the text one sees in the Browse Free Or Die promo by googling, so I'm going to include the text here so others can find it..

If I refresh firefox, the problem is solved but after one session, the problem occurs again. Other times, it last for a week or serveral weeks and then occurs again. Some pc's have this problem, others don't. All have the latest updates of firefox / windows... There's no logic explanation, it occors with windows 7 - 10 thanks in advance...
