Proxy/VPN extensions have stopped working

So, on my Firefox setup I use two extensions to circumvent website blocking in my country - one is an extension to make a specific website always available. The other is AnonymoX which I use for general purposes.

A few days ago I upgraded to Firefox 71.0 as well as updated my Windows 10 to the latest 1903 version. Today I noticed that both extensions have stopped working. AnonymoX just doesn't work, whereas the other plugin, upon activation, says (translated) "Conflict detected! Proxy settings are controlled by a different plugin or cannot be set up" Trying to circumvent a block (and only then - unblocked websites work fine) now either redirects me to the ISPs blocking page, or alternatively produces a "Secure Connection Failed PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR" message after a long TLS handshake. Running the same extensions in Chrome does not reproduce the issue - blocked websites become accessible as usual. The issue also persists for three different connections - a public wi-fi network, a private network and a tethered 4G connection, all served by different ISPs. Finally, I am not running any anti-virus software or firewall. Thus this seems to be a Firefox issue and not a system or network issue.

This also doesn't seem to be an issue with the country's blocking system itself because other users around me are still able to circumvent blocks using the same extensions and I am able to circumvent blocks using a similar extension on my Android phone with a local SIM.

Things I've tried so far: 1) Made sure that both Windows and Firefox are set to not use a proxy

2) Reinstalled the extensions

3) Created a different profile in Firefox. The extensions don't work in the new profile either, although the PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR does not appear - I just always get redirected to the respective ISPs block page

4) Cleared all cache, cookies, site settings etc.

5) Deleted the cert9.db file and let Firefox recereate it

So far nothing has worked. I'm frankly at a loss here. I have half a mind to just reinstall Firefox altogether since this is not my main PC and losing bookmarks wouldn't inconvenience me on it, but figured I'd ask here before.

LastPass was installed and running until Firefox automatically upgraded to ver. 71 and now it's been disabled. Even though LastPass is a "recommended" extension, when I try to re-install from Mozilla I get the message "an unexpected error occurred during installation" (see attached file). LP users report the same problem on their site but it's clearly a Firefox 71 problem (LP works fine will all my other browsers).

Hello. In my bookmarks library I have a lot of folders organized in a tree with multiple branches themselves organized in hierarchic levels. Sometimes I don't find the bookmark I want to use by browsing my tree, probably because I didn't put it in the right location in the tree. I can find it by the "Search bookmarks" function but this function doesn't provide the bookmark location in the tree (and I don't see any other way to locate it). Thus I can't correct the bookmark location error in the tree.

Is there a way to locate a bookmark in library folders tree ?

Since yesterday, Firefox will not play sound on youtube videos and some other embedded videos (eg Newsflare). IE and Chrome will play the sound. Have checked the sound system and everything seems OK as music still plays and websites with sound still work. Someone suggested it could be a flash player problem, but have checked Adobe flash and it is the latest version. I really don't know what the problem is. As an aside, my Train Simulator (which is run through Steam) also has no sound and it did 2 days ago!, but my Flight Simulator (also on Steam) has sound! Just can't get my head round it!! Help!!

After a full review of all Mozilla's addon troubleshooting pages, the addons I use everyday either don't appear upon my use of a mouse right click or don't work when clicking on them in the browser's header bar, and I haven't downloaded the new Firefox version for GREAT fear of AGAIN loosing ALL of my addons for the second time. And not being able to use my lost addons have crippled my production, because their replacement have not been nearly as good.

To remove an addon was easy, but reinstalling it won't fully engage even when the page popped up and gave me the option to install it. It's just spinning.

I imagine we're not talking about a sudden incompatability without an upgrade. Your help is welcome.

When I go to support, and type in "how do I find the current version of firefox for windows", I get: "Found 2923 results for ‘how do I find the current version of firefox for windows’ for ‘Firefox’ " but none address the issue of how to determine the most current version number. I notice Firefox says that I cannot upgrade, I must download a new version, with no explanation. The download is a version-unidentified executable called "Firefox installer.exe" I would consider this suspicious behavior in most downloaded software. What is going on? This seems like basic information that should be immediately available. I had a popup that said I am using the most current (71.0) version (I am using v 71.0), which appears to be incorrect. Googling this question has no Mozilla hits other than "Release Notes" which might lead one to guess 77.01, althoughn Wikipedia thinks just "77".

I restarted Firefox after a reboot and had received the new update (70). I previously had opened tabs (I work a LOT with opened tabs). All of them were now gone. No option to recover previous sessions was under settings. Also, none of my add-ons were present. Is this intended behaviour? Also, it seems to suggest I had to create a FF login to 'sync' things up? With what? I don't need my phone and my PC sync'd. I don't need my work and my home PC sync'd. It's fine that this was a feature previously but please tell me this isn't being thrust upon us because someone thinks that's "what everyone wants"?

I'm a developer and always have multiple Firefox profiles running simultaneously from the same program/install directory. This generally works very well.

The one issue I've struggled with is that since the removal of the "never check for updates" preference, the update behaviour of Firefox causes problems with multiple profiles. I have it set to prompt for updates, and I install them immediately from my "main" profile, but the "newer release is available" window keeps popping up in the other running profiles.

This is mostly just annoying. However, if I accidentally accept the update in one of the other profiles, it then tries to update overtop of the already-updated Firefox and errors out. I've had to reinstall from a full download because of this several times, which is a bigger problem.

I've looked for ways to disable the check-for-updates behaviour in my secondary profiles, but this doesn't seem possible. The only way to disable updates/checks for updates as I understand it is the enterprise policy method; however, this disables updates for all profiles using the same program/install directory. Obviously I like to keep up to date, so this is no good.

I don't want to have to have a seprate program/install dir for each profile -- then I would just have to update them all separately anyway.

Is there a way to have Firefox check for updates automatically, but only in my one main profile?

Thanks,

Charles

When I click on a link in any external application, FF will open a new window with an empty tab. Copy-pasting the link works.

I tried:

  • Safe Mode
  • Clean Profile

... to no result.

I am starting Firefox using a launcher script (Apple Script editor) which just does this: do shell script "nohup /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P -no-remote >/dev/null 2>&1 &"

It always worked, and it also works when I switch to Chrome or Safari. It's just firefox which does not any more.

Any help here?

I downloaded a malicious add-ons extension called "YouTube to MP3 Convert Button" by "Firefox user 6248547". All it did was open a video conversion website, which worked for the first video I tried (with alot of popups) but the second video I tried, it redirected me to a fake Firefox update page. As soon as I tried to cancel it, a login popup kept appearing and all my open tabs immediately went haywire trying to do some kind of redirect, and I it would not let me click on anything. I quickly ended the process to force close the browser, restarted Firefox and cleared my cache and uninstalled the extension. I am concerned about what kind of malware this may have installed on my machine. I reported this user over a month ago, but it is still available on the add-on page, and other people also commented about it having malware. Any suggestions?

Ja, Firefox Updates ärgern mich. Ich benutze seit vielen Jahren Firefox. Angefangen habe ich mit Version 4 oder 5, damals wurde noch mit Anpassbarkeit geworben. Anfangs war es noch möglich, durch einen Mausklick zu bestimmen, ob die Tabs oben oder unten sind, dann kam eine neue Firefox Version. Ich habe mir eine UserChrome.css gemacht, die gut funktioniert hat, dann kam Firefox 57? und die Anpassbarkeit war Geschichte. Wer mit mehreren Tabs arbeitet und dafür sind die Tabs doch da, muss die Maus mehr bewegen und es ist unübersichtlich. Wäre es nicht sinnvoll, dass was ich am häufigsten benutze, in der Nähe der Arbeitsfläche zu haben? Wäre es nicht besser die Tab Leiste standardmäßig nach unten zu legen und wer es anders möchte, der kann sich alle 10 oder 15 Versionen, eine UserChrome.css basteln.

I'm using Windows XP theme for Windows 7. Yes, it may sound weird, but I love that old Windows' design.

The problem is about the Mozilla Firefox browsers window height. As you can see in the screeenshot I posted below (or above, I actually have no idea where exactly), the bottom window is Mozilla Firefox browser and the top window is nothing but an explorer. Explorer has the default window height so we see the "minimise", "maximise" and "close" buttons correctly as it should be.

Is there a way to change this in Mozilla Firefox browser? It's not a big deal, but kinda bugs me when I look at that place.

Thank you.

I have my Firefox (Developer Edition 71.0b4) shortcut setup to display the "Choose User Profile" window when I start it. (Since I maintain both a personal and work profile.) Lately whenever I start this window comes up completely blank, with no content inside it at all, although the Choose User Profile title is still present. This prevents me from selecting a profile and starting Firefox.

To get around the problem, I close that blank window, wait a bit, and try launching the shortcut again. Often I have to try 3-4 times before it works.

This problem had existed on a previous version of Firefox (sorry didn't note version then), but seemed to get fixed with an update several months ago. Now the problem has returned.

I will try to attach an image later, but can't do so now while Firefox is running.
