I run Firefox on a number of systems and two of my work computers seem to be unable to check in with the Firefox update servers to get updates. See image for the exact error message.

"Firefox can't update to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox and we'll help you to install it."

My suspicion is my network team is blocking my browsers from getting to the Firefox update servers but I don't know how to test it. One of my browsers is 77.0, the other is 77.0.1. Both of them give me the error in the image. Both of them insist I'm on the latest version of Firefox when I use 'Help/About Firefox' to check.

If anyone knows what data I should collect to get this figured out I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

I cannot get Firefox to go completely into full screen on Mac OS Catalina. When going full screen it will hide the Mac system menu bar at the top, but it will not hide the Firefox address bar. I've researched a bit and found some suggestions about settings in about:config pertaining to full screen access, and I've exhausted all of those suggestions. Is this a known issue on Mac with Firefox?

Everytime I try to open an html file, I need to first close Firefox. A message with the error message "Firefox is already running but is not responding the old firefox process must be closed" appears, and the file only opens if I select the "close" option. After the first time I do it, the problem stops and the next tries open the files without any issues. If I drag a html file to a firefox tab it also opens normaly, without any issue.

This problem started after I set up more than one profile in Firefox. The issue occur both on the default profile or other profiles.

Based on some advice I found online, I tried two solutions: - Run firefox with the -no-remote option. - Delete the parent.lock file on the profile folder.

Neither solved the problem.

Does anyone had a similar problem? Did you manage to solve it? It is a minor issue, but it happens every single day and gets very annoying.

I uploaded an screenshot of the error message that appears when I try to open the file for the first time. I also recorded a video for more details: https://imgur.com/a/P0Qpz8f

My website, www.orthodoxdelmar.org, won't load in Firefox but will load in other browsers. I get a white screen in Firefox. I haven't had a problem with any other website.

I've tried going directly to specific pages on the site. I've exited and restarted Firefox. I've restarted my laptop. I can't find any setting where I might have accidentally blocked the page.

I'm running Firefox 77.0.1 (64 bit) on Windows 10. Laptop only 4 months old.

What am I missing?

Thank you.

The new version of Firefox has removed the drop-down arrow from the address bar, a feature I use several times a day.

Previously, there was a way to restore this by setting a number of "browser.urlbar" options to "False." However, these are currently set at False.

Please advise. Without the drop-down arrow, Firefox is not useful at all.

opening menu=folders on bookmark toolbar opens the menu far far away on another display on Linux/Ubuntu 18.04/Gnome

I'm using FF 77.0.1 (64-bit) [Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical- 1.0, but the problem has been present for the last 2-3 months over those versions current. When I open a folder on my bookmarks toolbar, the menu pops up on another display. If I just move my mouse down, as if the menu were immediately below the folder link, the corresponding rows on the menu on the other display are highlighted. However, clicking at that point does not select that menu entry. I must move my mouse over to where the menu is displayed, all the way being careful to not move outside of the Y dimension range of that menu (or it vanishes). This does not happen on all folders on the menu, but the ones it happens on vary from day to day. Prior to the version of FF that I am on, it would only happen once to a given menu and then it would start opening the menu where it should. I currently have 15 folders showing on the toolbar and 5 of them consistently misbehave.

I'm on Ubuntu Linux 18.04 using the Gnome desktop/window manager (not Wayland). I am using a Dell Laptop XPS-13, connected to a Dell DisplayPort dock which drives two external displays, on which I usually do all my work. If I drop back to just the laptop, all the folder menus display properly. In addition, with the dock connected and the two external displays, if I move the FF window to the laptop's display, the menus display properly. However, in my use of multiple applications, no application besides FF exhibits this problem. If I open a private session, the problem is not exhibited.

Adding a screenshot example. I had to crop it on the bottom side to fit in the 1024 Byte limit for attachments. On the bottom, you see a black area on the left, which is where there is no monitor. On the right is a portion of my laptop's display (cropped on the bottom). On the top are the two displays, and the portion just above the laptop display is my right display, and left is left.

How can I restore it with the latest version of Firefox, the previous fixes that were posted do not work any more.

Hello, I'd like to open url links clicked from any program in a private tab. Firefox is my default browser. Links open in new tab, which is okay. I browse in private mode all of the time, but clicking links opens in normal tab, then it cashes the content, cashes history etc. Most of the stuff (from for example discord) is a one time thing, silly and probably even useless stuff.

Is there a possible way to force windows10 to use "firefox.exe -private" as the default handler to open firefox ? I don't really mind if it opens a new window instead of new tab as long as it remains private.

Thank You for Your time.

"Fastly error: unknown domain: www.ebay.com. Please check that this domain has been added to a service. Details: cache-bos4642-BOS"

Why is Firefox blocking me from my eBay account this is the 3rd different error message in a month! The previous "408" error seems to have finally been fixed. At least it eventually allowed access, this one does not ever since last Sun. AM 6/7/2020 when Firefox loaded an update that knocked me off our virtual video Church service. I had to reboot computer and router to get working again. Have not been able to access eBay ever since. Is there a fix? Why do they keep doing this to us?

I am running Win 7, 64.

All help with this greatly appreciated, and I thank you, in advance.

Bob T., Lowell, MA, USA

UPDATE: Aug. 1, 2020:

None of the 2 respondents solutions below worked. No responses to my reply's to them ever received. As noted in my replies shortly after posting this problem Firefox installed an update, and many more since, after that update the problem has disappeared and I've not had it again. As Ithought it may well have been a software glitch.

I consider this matter resolved and closed.

I am using Firefox 77.0 and get flashing images that seem to occur randomly. One just appeared as I am typing this. It is quite annoying and, and for anyone susceptible to strobe lighting, may be dangerous.

Operating system is Fedora 32. I have also recently installed a Microsoft wired, laser mouse but I don't think this is causing the problem.

I have Gnome Tweaks installed and have noticed that the Windows Title bar items flash at the same time.

Hello Firefox community

I use Firefox as my primary browser on 5 devices - personal desktop, work laptop, spouse desktop, spouse laptop, and personal laptop. On only my personal laptop, I frequently encounter SSL cert errors warning me of invalid issuer. I don't encounter the same error on any other device (including also my phones). Is there some way I can force an update of the Firefox certificate repository? I assume these are being caused by out of date cert repositories or the like. The cert I get on the other devices is the same cert presented to this laptop; only the laptop issues the error.
