When receiving the following messages when accessing a specific URL.

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to xyz. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

Then clicking on the Advanced... button at the bottom of the popup window.

And then clicking on the Accept the Risk and Continue button.

My question is does Firefox make any changes to Internet Options or anywhere else, including within Firefox to change configurations of any type when the Accept the Risk and Continue button is clicked on?

Thank you!

Opening up firefox last week am a message saying something was wrong/couldn't proceed (I don't remember the exact text). I tried to delete the message, but it just came back every time blocking opening firefox. I tried to restart it, but the same blocking message reappeared. I then uninstalled it and all my files disappeared, of course. I've today reinstalled it, but no history, etc.. How can I get my original web files back? Do you have a 30 day grace period where any file can be restored like the one Microsoft has? Can I get my webfiles back at all? Please help. tmr W10 64bit

I know this is probably an odd issue. I have a website that I use frequently and one of the drop down boxes on the website changes the selection I make automatically if I move from one screen to the next then back again. What would cause this issue?

I have cleared everything from the browser and done a refresh. I also cleared the startup cache. The refresh corrected the issue for a few hours but then it started again. Clearing the startup cache worked for about 5 minutes then it started again.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hello, After one of the last updates of november I started having 20-50 processes for each firefox profile that I use. In previous versions I used 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart' and 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2' and set them to false, to limit the number of processes. But now, even though I removed these configurations, I have no option to control how much RAM and processes firefox uses - the option to set the content processes is missing from the settings page too. Another thing that I noticed is that for some reason, in most of my profiles, container tabs can't be enabled.

Hope you can help, Rotem.

Hi,

Firefox updated today on my Mac to the latest version. I want to go back to the version I was using before, as in yesterday. (It was first installed on 9th April 2019, but I don't remember if it was updated at any time before today or not - so, not sure which version I was using yesterday).

How do I get back to yesterday's version without losing my bookmarks etc? This new version doesn't give me the option of having Google Chrome when I open each new tab - only Firefox or a blank page, which I don't want. Also, the version I was using up until yesterday (and this morning, actually) was much easier for me to see on-screen; at least the tabs look different on this new version.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

I routinely use Thunderbird to access my three gmail accounts. Google have recently introduced two-step verification on one of these accounts - after I put in my password it sends a message to my mobile asking me to verify my identity. I am now unable to get in to this account via Thunderbird, presumably because Thunderbird can't handle the extra login step. It says I need an "application-specific password". I have no problems with my other two gmail accounts - though if Google introduce two-step verification on these I'll presumably not be able to get into them via Thudnerbird either. As far as i know I'm using the latest version of Thunderbird - I certainly get auomatic updates.

Can anybody help? John

We use Firefox in our small business to deliver web-based apps for visitor sign-in at schools. We specify Firefox ESR primarily because of the Silent Print feature and the fact it is much easier to enable in Firefox than other major browsers.

With the ESR 91 release we began getting reports from customers that our web-app was no printing the name tags to a locally connected label printer. The printer has been checked. Drivers are installed and updated. The target label printer is designated as the default for the Win-PC station.

The config of the Firefox print function has been verified so that it is targeting the right local device and has the relevant print settings correct.

When we run with PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT = TRUE the sign-in process completes and no name tag is printed to the label printer.

When we run with PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT = FALSE the sign-in process completes, the print dialog pops and upon clicking the PRINT button the name tag prints to the label printer.

What's up with the PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT setting? It used to work, when we were running ESR78. Silent printing has been our selling point to run Firefox on hundreds of PC/Win (and Mac) workstations across our customer sites. Without this feature enabled and working, our customers are going to start asking to move back to Chrome or Edge.

Testing ConvertKit integrations with my Squarespace site across multiple browsers. Firefox (v94.0.2) doesn't show the embedded ConvertKit form in the footer. I also have the ConvertKit form embedded in a sidebar, and while Firefox shows that form, it doesn't initiate the correct response (a 'thank you' that shows up on the sidebar when someone signs up); instead it pops open a new browser window with the thank you message.

I uploaded 2 images; one shows how the form should act on the sidebar after subscribing (screenshot from using Chrome) and the other shows how Firefox handles the subscribe. The Chrome screenshot shows Sign Up For Our Newsletter and a Success! message below it. The Firefox image shows that the form response takes me to another web page with multiple messages.

Any ideas what's up? should I advise visitors to the website that the form does not display correctly on Firefox?

Thanks -

Hello, John aka Beer Gutt here.

A while ago (about three months), I moved my hard drive to a new PC with better parts. It has a better mother board, a better graphics card and twice the RAM. Anyway, since then Firefox hasn't worked the same. When i open Firefox, there will be random pieces of letters or words on a webpage just gone, making a lot of them impossible to browse because I can't read half of the the new Alien dialect on the screen. Some websites have been better than others, but its gotten to the point where some web pages (Like YouTube or Reddit for example.) will just be a mess of random de fragmented lime green blocks that completely corrupt the page and will shift, move and appear at random covering up text as I scroll down. Videos will play just fine, it's the rest of the site that's effed up. Also on YouTube videos, where the timer for the video is located, some of the numbers just won't show up. Like it will count down fine but won't display certain numbers in the timer. Funny thing is, is that this doesn't just affect the websites, but the browser itself. For example, hovering my mouse over different tabs will highlight them and show me the preview text of the tab. All that is good until I move over to a different tab and voila, the text is gone, and then suddenly all the other tabs are either blank or just missing random letters and numbers in the tab. This is only happening in Firefox btw. No other app on my PC is doing this. I've tried refreshing Firefox about six times now, I've uninstalled it three times in an attempt to fix the issue along with restarting my PC multiple times... All of that, and I find out yesterday that it works perfectly when in "Troubleshoot/Safe mode", and only when in Troubleshoot/Safe mode. I have no idea what is causing the issue... *PePeLaugh* 
 See, I would use another browser but I've been using Mozilla for 8-9 years and would like to avoid the hassle of moving everything to a new browser... I would VERY much appreciate any help at all.
 I'm running 64-bit windows 8.1 on the latest updates and my PC specs are roughly as follows below. I look forward to a response...

AMD FX(tm) 8350 Eight-Core Processor 4.00 GHz

This has happened on several of my computers. Upgrading from some version of FF80 to some version of FF90 results in gibberish text.

What Mac OS system fonts does Firefox require? I somehow got this fixed on one system, but many monthds ago, so I don't know what actually worked. I have cleaned font caches, etc. but cannot get it fixed on the latest so far. Settings are Latin, normal fonts like Georgia or Verdana.

I have long used the option to have a separate address and search bar ("Add search bar in toolbar" in search settings). A few months ago, I changed that to "Use the address bar for search and navigation". The search bar is gone, but when I type a query into my combined address and search bar, I only get "We're having trouble finding this site".

Notes: -) My default search engine is DuckDuckGo, but it doesn't work either when I make Google my default search engine -) I can use the "this time search with..." buttons on bottom, but that's an extra step for every search -) My profile goes way back to the beginnings of Firefox. Any hidden settings that might not have been migrated properly in the past, and that I could check in the about:config?

Lately (as of which version, I'm not sure), I've been noticing that if I enter a URL in the address bar of a tab that already has a page open, instead of going to the new URL I entered, Firefox will refresh the current page instead. This happens A LOT and is pretty annoying. Wondering if this happens to anyone else.

Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.
