Suspicious Connection Blocked

I have Bitdefender total security and several times per minute for hours per day I get messages that firefox is trying to connect to an untrusted source and I'm wondering if you can help me get it to stop. It seems to happen primarily when I am using NordVPN with a United States IP address.

This is the message I continue to get from Bitdefender:

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an untrusted certificate to trends.newsmaxwidget.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since untrusted certificates are issued by unrecognized Certificate Authorities.


I don't know what this trends.newsmaxwidget.com certificate is or where to find it to delete it. Can it be deleted? Is this a problem with my VPN?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Textexpander in Google Sheets adds a line break upon expansion in Firefox

I've come across a problem with using Textexpander in Google Sheets in Firefox.

Say I have a snippet that expands to =INDEX(B2:B,MATCH("green",A2:A,0),1)

Now if I expand that by just typing the abbreviation shortcut, i.e. gs.index, it gets expanded, but has a line break before it within the cell so it doesn't get recognised as a formula. I have to manually delete the line break out.

However, if I use the global keyboard shortcut to search for the snippet and select it from the list, when entered, it goes into the cell without a preceding line break and gets registered as a formula.

Is there anyway to overcome this issue that you know of? I'm using Firefox 85.0.2, mainly because I'm on High Sierra and Safari cannot be updated beyond 13.1.2. Incidentally, I don't get this problem when using Safari.

I've raised this with the guys at Smile Software too, but asking here as it does seem to be a Firefox-specific issue.

Thanks.

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to find in which folder a specific bookmark is contained ? I can do a search on the "Show all Bookmarks" library but it only shows the URL without the folder. In Chrome there is a useful feature which let you easily highlight the location. It's very strange that isn't possible in Firefox.

There is an archived post here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1161879 but the tricky workaround is not acceptable for me. Any ideas ? Thanks in advance Stefano

Greetings,

I've noticed that since the recent update to 85.0.2, right clicking in the search bar to paste information on Google no longer functions properly.

If I've just opened the browser, and not done a thing with it, it will work. If I've visited any sites at all, and used the 'home' button to get back to Google, or opened a new tab to do so, right clicking the search field does not open the contextual menu as it should.

Other search engines work fine, and oddly enough, if I type something random into the main Google search page, the search field on the results page (at the top of the page) works as it should. The only issue appears to be with the 'main' search field on any but the initial opening of the browser home page.

I'm not sure of the cause, beyond noting that it began right after I updated to 85.0.2.

We had gotten a new internet provider a couple months back so email addresses were changed over and my email for my Mozilla login in is no longer accessible. In the mean time this week our computer died and we purchased a new one. Now when you try to login to mozilla to access my bookmarks and other things, which has 10 plus years of book Mark's on it wants to send a email code to the email I have no access to. I cant even add a secondary email or actually get past the login in page. Is there a customer support contact to help change the email on their side?

The mozilla firefox stop working suddenly on Windows 10, i tried almost everything and i was not being able to fix it. What i did is :

1. Started firefox in safe mode 2. Uninstalled compeletely firefox and then tried to install it, on end of installation was getting the error the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000000d) 3. checked about:crashes is not possible because only allow you to write and nothing else happens if you press enter stays as it is

Somehow firefox installed and i am only able to start it on compatible mode, how can i fix the problem and see what it happens?

Running in compatible mode breaks the visual on full screen also.
