Several years before, I had an adblocker add-on with a feature to define own filter rules.

With that feature, I was able to block parts of often visited web pages with some few mouse clicks only.

Unfortunately, I don't remember, which adblocker and which additional addon I used at that time.

How can I find back that solution for me?

Webpage errors out with "Error SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG", but works in Private Browsing?

A webpage on our internal company domain ("") errors out with "Error SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG". If I switch to private browsing the same page works. The page also works with all other browsers without issue. If I "reset firefox", the page starts working again - even after firefox sync has re-installed all my add-ons. After some indeterminate amount of time (weeks) the page starts to error out again. This problem occurs on Firefox 75 on Ubuntu 18.04 as of now.

I'm at a total loss as to how to even begin to debug this - any pointers on where to start looking? As I mentioned the webpage that errors out the only page on an intranet so I cannot share the URL.

www.<website>.com in location bar creates http://www.<website>.com, not httpS://www.<website>.com

When I key www.<website>.com in location bar and hit enter, Firefox uses http://www.<website>.com, not httpS://www.<website>.com, to find the website. Most of the time the http:// version does not resolve to a website. It just hunts and hunts and hunts. This same thing happens many times when I click on a link in gmail which I open in Firefox.

Since we are all supposed to be using httpS:// these days, why doesn't Firefox default to https://?

Is there some setting that I'm missing?

Thanks, Caitlin

Hi all

I recently refreshed my Firebox browser and I can now no longer use McAfee WebAdvisor.

Really frustrated by this - I browse a lot for work and research. I find the WebAdvisor reassuring to have on-hand.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling WebAdvisor but it still does not show. I tried searching for it through the add-ons menu and it still does not appear.

I reached out to McAfee who told me that Mozilla no longer allows McAfee WebAdvisor on Firefox.

Is this actually, seriously the case? I'll be disappointed if so - Firefox is my preferred browser but I'll have to ditch it for Chrome if I cannot use a safe-search advisor. And it should be up to user which safe-search add-on they wish to use, not Mozilla.

Can anyone advise on this?

Many thanks!

I am a German but I prefer all my interfaces in English, and I prefer US English so that I get used to spelling consistently using a single variant of English. I have configured my System to use US English in general, but European versions for dates and currencies, so that I still have a sane date format (seriously, stop this M/D/Y madness) and ideally Euros. But it seems like there is no option to do something like this in Firefox.

I am getting apparently random redirects to mostly r.svrtrack.com, there has been one other.

I checked my addons and installed programs and can't find anything unexpected.

I have scanned with Malwarebytes and Windows Security and they can't find anything.

I haven't captured a screenshot, will do so next time it happens.

Pls halp, Tim

Issue: Cannot play Amazon Music Unlimited.

Platform: Nvidia Jetson Nano

Processor: ARMv8 Processor rev 1 (v8l) × 4

OS: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Browser: Firefox for Ubuntu version 75.0b11 (64-bit)

Description: When I log into amazon.com, I can play music excerpts but when I go to Amazon Music, I get the following error: Playback disabled – Please enable playback settings for your browser.

I saw on an Amazon forum (https://www.amazonforum.com/s/question/0D54P00006zSzZVSA0/linuxplayback-disabled-message-in-firefox) that Amazon Music playback is not supported if you are using a Linux computer. Customers using other operating systems (including Linux, Chrome OS, Windows versions older than Windows 7 and versions of OSX below 10.9) can download purchased music directly through their computer's web browser.

However I hear other people are playing other Amazon Prime content using Linux so I suspect you can make it work if you get Widevine.

Reading the forums, I think my issue is that I need Widevine Digital Rights Management.

One forum (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-drm) said that Widevine would be installed (Firefox downloads and enables the Google Widevine CDM on demand, with user permission, to give users a smooth experience on sites that require DRM). They also have instructions on where to enable it in the Add-ons Manager Plugins panel, ellipsis icon next to Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.

On the Add-ons Manager Plugins panel I don’t have Widevine listed. I see “OpenH264” and “Shockwave flash” but I do not see “Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google”.

It also said that you can always turn DRM playback on again by opening the Firefox Preferences General panel and, under “Digital Rights Management (DRM) Content”, putting a check mark next to “Play DRM-controlled content”. I don’t have “Digital Rights Management (DRM) Content” listed on the General panel.

I assumed that Widevine didn’t install on demand. So I found another forum that explained how to download the zip file from Google. I did the following steps to get the latest file and I put it in the plugins folder.

sudo wget https://dl.google.com/widevine-cdm/1.4.9.1088-linux-x64.zip

sudo unzip 1.4.9.1088-linux-x64.zip

sudo mv libwidevinecdm.so /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins

sudo chmod 644 /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/libwidevinecdm.so

Still it doesn’t appear in my Plugins.

Questions:

   • Do I need Widevine to play Amazon Music Unlimited?
   • If I do, how do I install Widevine?

I already upgraded my home's internet speed up to 1Gb. It included a router's change. The fact i, when i do a speed test on Firefox, it does reach only 600 Mb download speed and 100 upload. If i do the same speed test with another browser, i get 900 MB download and 100 Mb upload. So , how do i configure Firefox in order to get same values than Edge and Chrome browsers? I understand it might has to be with some parameters in about:config . Could you give me some light on this? Thanks

Security consultants have advised that cipher suites using the SHA1 hash are no longer considered secure and should not be enabled.

Using the nmap tool we can identify which cipher suites use the SHA1 hash.

On our webserver, (IIS version 8.5 on Windows 2012 R2 ) if we eliminate cipher suites that contain the SHA1 hash, the Firefox browser cannot browse the site. Error displayed = Secure Connection Failed - PR_CONNECT_ABORTED_ERROR We tested versions up to Firefox ( v75.0 ).

Other browsers such as Chrome and IE have no issues browsing our site with the SHA1 hash disabled.

Once the SHA1 hash is enabled, Firefox works fine. Seeking a solution that will satisfy the security folks and our Firefox users.

Hello,

Does Firefox support Office 365 online? I opened a Word document on Dropbox website and I got a message that office is not supported in this web browser. My computer has Windows 10 OS and I used Mozilla Firefox Developer as well as Mozilla Firefox. A colleague of mine has the same issue while using macOS Mojave 10.14.6 and Mozilla Firefox.

BTW I have Dark Reader plug-in enabled in my browser, that's why the picture is in reversed colours. It doesn't affect the problem described.

Thanks.

New versions of Firefox are very slow for download speeds. 50% of what is available from my provider. Safari is at 100%. Is this from security and filters ?

Recently updated to the latest 2 versions and Firefox is failing download speed wise. Upload speeds are what they should be. I have ran speed tests from multiple sources and all return a similar range - 40-60Mbps. My provider speed is 100Mbps. I have run the same tests with Safari and it is operating at 100% speed wise. Are new security features and / or tracking filters responsible for this slow down ?

Hi guys. I tested this recently on notebook with Windows 10. I installed Firefox, sign in to my account, synced everything. Let's say, I need to delete all the data and this account from this particular device. I couldn't find such an option. When I deleted my account from Firefox, all the data left on the notebook! Even when I uninstall the browser, and then install it again - browser restored all the data!!!

Is it possible to delete my sync account and all the data related to it: history, bookmarks, sessions, extensions, add-ons, everything?

Let's say, I'm signed in on a friend's laptop and need to delete everything later.

I've flipped to notify the setting in "about:preferences" to the other available one "Check for updates but let you choose to install them", but it automatically flips back to autoupdate after a while - I've had firefox updating on its own a few times because of that sometimes really messing up my extensions and settings. I prefer having control of my own, backing up the portable version myself and manual updates. I've also flipped to false these flags in "about:config": app.update.auto app.update.auto.migrated app.update.enabled but they aren't doing anything.

I am not ALLOWED to ever find the location of the firefox address or navigation bar. The "people" of firefox use these two names all over this site, and not once will anyone tell me the location, or how they may be accessed. If the most basic data is EXCLUDED, because EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT FIREFOX, how is the new user to find anything? I have spent 7 hours on your website, because this browser idles at almost a gig of RAM on the browser homepage, I researched and found out I'm supposed use the "navigation bar" unfortunately someone forgot include it's location. It's great that you include the data that the "minimize memory usage" button exists as a tool, BUT WHERE IN THE HELL WAS IT HIDDEN? I have never experienced a product that intentionally excludes instructions, and there is no way to get any help or service, and I'm left with this poor excuse for customer service with leaving questions that will never be answered. Thanking you in advance for NO HELP OR SERVICE, James Erb(email address).
