FF (78.0.2) will not allow me to visit wordpress.com. Below is a copy of the text on the error screen. There is not option to proceed, only to go back.

"Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to wordpress.com because this web site requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

wordpress.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 web site, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the web site’s administrator about the problem.

Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue.

Web sites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust wordpress.com because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

I like to have a lot of tabs opened (some aren't loaded, but the count of tabs goes to ~400 sometimes).

You can write "%gmail" in address/search bar and it will find the gmail tab if any is opened. But you can't do this with a simple click. That's why my "go to gmail" sequence is now Ctrl+T, %gmail, down arrow, enter. I'd suggest an option to allow for %gmail in "bookmarks bar" (I'm not sure how do you name it in English, but what I mean is the toolbar of favourites addresses or - simply - in favourites.)

What do you think? I've read about https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/tabs , but as I understand, I can't use it in a "favourite".

Website doesn't reload in FF

Hello all -- I'm trying to follow a cricket match on https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/19497/game/1225249/england-vs-west-indies-3rd-test-west-indies-in-england-2020 Th… (tuilleadh eolais)

Hello all -- I'm trying to follow a cricket match on https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/19497/game/1225249/england-vs-west-indies-3rd-test-west-indies-in-england-2020

They helpfully provide a reload every minute or so to keep you up to date with the scores and action. It works in Chrome and Edge but not in FF. I've told FF to allow pop-ups for this site but I can't seem to get it to work - I have to keep reloading the page manually.

Is there a way I can get the constrantly-reloading site to work automatically on FF?

78.0.2/W10

Thanks for any pointers.

So I rested my Windows 10 yesterday and I reinstalled Firefox which I was fine with because I had enabled Sync. It was fine except my history was not restored at all. All my bookmarks and passwords were fine and there was not a loss of data in those two. Now, I found my old Firefox profile (I'm guessing it is the old one) in the Windows.old folder and I have a new profile now (obviously). Is there a way to retrieve the history from the old profile? Also, does the Sync feature not sync the browser history?

I'd like it if Firefox would automatically convert webp images to jpg or png files instead of the opposite... stop trying to save png or jpg files as webp... and stop serving me webp images when it is optional. I understand there are websites that ONLY display webp format images, but I am also aware that jpg and png files exist on many of these websites as well. I do not want to disable the ability to display webp in the browser, but I want to turn off whatever option is currently turned on.

I'd like to go back to being able to right click, Save Image As > and end up saving a png or jpg. There have been several websites over the last few weeks that I have visited, and even if the image in the URL is named jpg or png, Firefox tries to save it as a webp. This is complicating my image saving process. I am using the Add-on named "Save webP as PNG or JPEG" which works, but slows down my saving process considerably. The Add-on does not remember the last folder I saved an image to, and adds several additional clicks to what used to be a simple process.

Is there a way in about:config to prevent Firefox from putting webp as the default file format in the Save Image As dialog box?

Suggesting that I use Internet Explorer or Edge is crazy. I'm not changing browsers.

You can demo this annoyance by trying to save this image, which is obviously supposed to be a jpg: https://media.entertainmentearth.com/assets/images/7c23e8c9a6014c57aa8f5d3e281b3834lg.jpg

I use 2 or 3 websites (in the UK) regularly which allows me to check local stock of items I want to buy and then collect. I use Page info and change the Allow Location / Permissions to do this. Every time I restart FF or re start my Mac or FF does an update these chosen settings are lost and reverts to default. How can I make this setting a permanent thing, it's a bit irritating not to be able to Save this preference. (FF v78.0.2esr / Mac 10.11.6)

One of my Windows 10 PCs running Firefox is not remembering my setting privacy.resistFingerprinting=false. After each restart if reverts to privacy.resistFingerprinting=true.

Has anyone experienced and solved this problem previously? Which config file is this setting stored in outside of FF?

Firefox is on latest release (v79) but this has been persistant across previous releases as well. Thanks

When I click on a link to a document (a PDF in my case), I'm asked for a location to store it. That's fine.

Now, if I click on the Downloads button in the Toolbar, a selection with all downloaded files opens. How do I specify/change the application used to open the file if I select it there?

Hello Community,

I'm new here ;)

My Question is:

Why didn't the new version 79.0 install itself automatic like the other versions did before? I should download it from the Homepage and install it (maybe deinstall the Browser before). I got v.78.0.2 64bit on a Windows 10 desktop.

Thank you, friendly regards,

Bonjour ( from France )

I am submitting to you a problem that only appears with your browser and not with Chrome.

These are the cookies that I have configured on my PC to refuse them, it's my choice!

I accept them occasionally when certain sites I visit ask me to

When I connect to my portal, Orange in this case, I always have this banner (see the print sceen attached) which appears each time either by opening my inbox on each of the messages, or by consulting different subjects presented by the home page.

In vain I answer that I accept or refuse, it works on a few selection clicks then the banner reappears!

It's very very annoying

So I switch to Chrome and I don't have this pb so I conclude that it comes from Firefox!

I am retired from IT with 50 years in the business and I do not understand this bug.

Could you delete this permanent alert, especially since it has only appeared for a very few years.

Of course I could do without Firefox and use Chrome as my default browser, but I prefer Mozilla to Google.

Thank you in advance for your answer and remove this headband that breaks our feet.
