I live in the UK and recently when going to the BBC.co.uk I get the website as BBC.com after a few seconds. I know that I usually see .com when overseas and this is normal. Why has this started happening while I am still in the United Kingdom?

Outlook.office.com not refreshing automatically anymore and requires browser refresh to show new e-mails, etc... Works in Edge and Chrome just fine. Had this issue years ago and issue self-resolved, so unsure what resolution was then.

I am unable to login to a single microsoft service on firefox with my school account. It infinitely redirects to a different link and says "Sorry we're unable to sign you in" and I cannot even access the login page for microsoft office 365. I cleared all cookies and cache and even recreated my account 3 times and reinstalled fresh firefox 5 times. Nothing works.

I recently got seriously worried when I became aware about the new AI firewalls these days, which monitors or inspect SSL encrypted packets, before the packets reach to the main website. These new AI firewall systems are installed in some countries by their governments to suppress free speech, or just spy on its people. These firewalls, as you may already know, uses DPI-SSL system, which decrypts packets traveling from user to the main website. To decrypt the HTTPS packets, these firewalls uses its own self signed CA certificates. So I am asking the firefox developers, that why you guys allow this privacy issue? Does the packets sent from a firefoxe browser to other websites are also decrypted, by these firewalls? If yes, then why you guys allow this? Firefox must ONLY allow a specific CA certificate made for firefox browser only. Firefox browser must never let other third party softwares, or any software, to decrypt its encrypted packets. This is a serious privacy issue. With these firewalls, they can see what users write in chats, or posts, they can see witch content we are watching on a website, they can see who we follow on social media platforms, they can see which content or posts we like and etc. Even passwords are not safe anymore, which e use for any website of platform. When passwords are not safe, so does our accounts of various websites. This is a serious privacy breach.

These firewalls is a weapon for those countries which want to suppress free speech or suppress opposition sides in a government or spy on its own people.

Please let me know if I am mistaken or my concerns are genuine.

Firefox must've updated because this worked fine yesterday(7/11/24) but now I get this error when I try to access Google's main page.


Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it? google.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 website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. If you are on a corporate network or using antivirus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Since a few days now my URL bar is too small. I can see where it used to be in light gray, but the text box is just a small part of it. I searched everywhere but I can not find anything to fix it. I even tried to reset the settings to default but it is still the same. Any idea what I can do?

Here is a screenshot of how it looks like when I click into the text box: (see attached)

Webpages don't open on Firefox and a link is clicked (for example, a link in an email). This problem does not happen when using another browser. I followed the advice given to someone who had the same problem. Switching to "No proxy" as suggested did not correct the problem. The advice was from zeroknight and is pasted below: zeroknight 12/1/23, 1:28 AM more options The browser settings are in the menu that looks like three horizontal bars (≡). From there, go into Connection Settings and change "Use system proxy settings" to "No proxy".

Refreshing Firefox did not correct the problem

I'm having issues with videos loading on ANY webiste, YouTube ect.... This started happening very recently out of the blue. Videos work fine on Edge. Additionally, I cannot run Firefox in troubleshooting mode? It crashes. I tried "refreshing" and reinstalling Firefox to no avail. I am using AdAware AV and AVG anti viruses if it matters, I have tired disabling both and loading FIrefox, no changes.

Settings > Home > New Windows and Tabs > Homepage and new windows

This setting got reset on me last night. Using 127.0.2.

So, I set it to custom, add in a URL, close the settings, re-open the settings and see it is set.

I close my non-pinned tabs and then close the browser.

Upon opening the browser, I am greeted with an empty tab and the Setting has reverted to "Blank Page".

Every time Firefox updates it keeps re-enabling settings on its own.

Specifically 2 settings on the general tab keep enabling themselves in the "browsing" section, "Recommend extensions as you browse" and "Recommend features as you browse"

I have disabled these settings dozens of times now, and every time Firefox updates it keeps re-enabling these 2 settings on its own.

Just now I updated to v128.0 and these 2 settings turned themselves on again.

Why is Firefox not respecting my settings? Why is Firefox allowed to modify my settings without my permission?

I have deleted and reinstalled Firefox already. I don't use profiles and am not signed into the browser, so no settings are getting carried over that way.

Hello, I originally installed Firefox in my work laptop and logged in to sync my stuff. Due to some company policies, I had to uninstall it. Eventually, I was able to overcome some oddities and finally could reinstall Firefox. But when I logged in, sync was neverending (matter of hours, if was just stuck); thus I refreshed it, but no luck whatsoever, still neverending sync. Tried a few refreshes and reinstalls until eventually everything was fine.

Unfortunately, during this process something must have been damaged as I lost most of my extensions and themes. So I decided to reinstall them one by one. For some of them everything went just OK, but some others (e.g. FoxyTabs) cannot be installed anymore, see screenshot. The path is:

  1. Click add button
  2. confirm I want to add the extension
  3. that error is shown (translate from italian: An unexpected error occurred during the installation)

I really don't know what to do. Did my Firefox installation get corrupted or what?

Thanks a lot!

Some time back, for me, both browsers would crash frequently when open at he same time. Then, it stopped, but since I don't use Chrome very often, perhaps the behavior was still the in the right circumstances.

Happened today. I was working in Firefox, and had to open Chrome, and a sort time later Firefox crashed, with a crash message. Wouldn't restart.

After several minutes, I had to go to the Task Manager, to find about 20 Firefox processes still active in the "background processes", with one of them at about 31% cpu. A short time later, Chrome crashed.

Has anyone else seen this?

It's a NIGHTMARE trying to read a web page! control C USED to work but they have messed with it and so it's really non functional as it only shows part of the page and HIDES a lot of it so that scrolling does not work! A real disaster now.

Google has it in for you and Duck Duck Go also, it's obvious a big war is going on and they do things to hinder. so wish you had not SOLD OUT THE MAIL. It is not better. I'd give a lot to go back to just how it used to be! No way am I doing any more updates! And I still get messages from others who say they agree with me.

They keep "updating" the internet but it is to take back the privacy we used to have. So many things don't work nice or right or even safe anymore!
