Hello,

One website gives me a failed secure connection:

An error occurred while connecting to www.cdkeypt.pt. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

This error is in Firefox but this site doesn't work in any browser

I restart the pc when it re-enters the desktop if i open the browser before the computer fully starts the site works fine which makes me conclued that something is interfering with it and it most be an update or something because i didn't install anything new, but what? it is only this site that doesn't work all the others are working fine.

I tested opening the site in another pc in my network and it works fine.

I hope someone can help me,

Thanks

I think I may be set to private browsing, because websites aren't remembering my computer, and I have to have codes texted every time I try to log in. Cookies are on, but it's still happening, and it's maddening, as I'm a freelance bookkeeper and have to be able to login to multiple sites, and have to coordinate with the client every time I'm forced to get a new code.

Please help, this is negatively impacting my work.

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

Some of well known sites such as "drive.google.com" & "mail.yahoo.com" is resulting in "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue page" in Firefox. They are opening just fine in other browsers.

This issue has cropped up since past week in Firefox. Not sure what is the root cause behind the problem. I have tried re-installing Firefox, but still no change.

I have checked the certificates of those sites, and they are seems to be in order. I mean other browsers are able to open without issue, then why Firefox is not opening them for me?

Please let me know if this issue can be fixed in Firefox.

Hello,

I urgently ;-) need a shortcut to switch between open browser windows. It seems to be one of the basic ones, but is nowhere to be found.

Solutions using Tilde do not work for me becuse it's not available on my Apple keyboard.

Why not use Command +< or Command + > respectively, like many other apps do?

And why not at least let me configure that in a simple fashion myself???

Thanks for any solution!

I just deleted my cache / history, and for some reason this also took Foxit Reader out of my printer options. How do I get it back in? I Tried using "Find Printer", but it would not except an .exe as a printer. I first put Foxit in so long ago, I have no memory of how I did it. I print to pdf most of the time when saving a receipt, etc. and would rather use Foxit than ms. Thanks

This lockwise related feature requires one to enter a computer password/pin etc to be able to see saved login passwords. This is something I have always wished FF had (like every other browser does) but was always told that it is not necessary or is silly since it is not very secure or some other nonsense. But is is useful since it makes snooping difficult which is good enough.

Anyway, obviously FF has come around to this viewpoint... but after finding that without warning it is no longer functioning on my browser and resetting firefox and restarts and everything, I see on the page below "This feature will be disabled for both macOS and Windows in Firefox version 76 and 77. Mozilla is planning improvements to this feature in Firefox 78."

Bizarre since according to the article it starts working in version 76. Starts working in 76 but has been disabled in 76 (plus 77 for good measure).

What? My question is why was this disabled for what's likely to be a while and is there anyway to override it? Can I bring it back with a pref change? Thanks!

I downloaded the recommended update by Firefox for our browser. Apparently, I inadvertently did not carry the passwords over in the application or something. I am so upset with myself because I no longer have any passwords. I chose Firefox many years ago for the convenience of having our many passwords securely and readily available. Now I have nothing! All our financial and medical accounts have passwords and I can no longer get them. PLEASE HELP

Is this possible? I like the sleekness of not having the bookmarks bar but it would be very helpful to have it popup when I open a new tab only. (I use this feature in Brave browser, but I prefer Firefox)

I searched the entire web and looked for add-ons and couldn't find a solution. I have attempted to create a custom chrome css file but that didn't work.

What can I do?

I've been using Firefox to store logins and passwords and manage bookmarks on one computer for 10 years+. I always just opened a browser, clicked "tools" then went to my saved passwords. Today I got a new computer and wanted to sync with my Firefox from the old computer. The old computer is asking for a Firefox password, which I don't have (I've tried everything I can think of but I set it 10 years ago). I searched for help online and tried setting a "Master Password." Now, despite entering the EXACT password I selected, it is saying it's wrong and I'm locked out of all of my saved logins on the original computer as well.

I have a secondary email but nothing seems to generate a recovery email (yes, I am stupid and didn't enable recovery key and now I cannot do it because I don't have the password). Is there any way for me to get back into my saved logins? I am using the old computer to work from home and cannot complete any work now. The company sent me a brand new laptop, but all of my logins and passwords are on the old computer tha now wants a master password.

Recently, when a popup window appears, the toolbar doesn't have buttons for any of my addons.

In about:config, I'd intentionally set dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar to true (following the solution provided in: question 1206512).

Previously, this was successful in ensuring that popup windows got the full toolbar, but now it has stopped working.

I'm not sure exactly which release this started with.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Set dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar to true.

2) Visit https://jeffersonscher.com/res/popit.html and follow the third link.

3) The window that pops up has no toolbar icons for the installed extensions.

When I right-click on an image in Chrome, and choose `save as`, it doesn't ask me for a new file name if a file with the same name exists in the folder. It just adds a `(1)` suffix to the filename automatically. However, in Firefox, it asks me to type a new file name if the directory contains a file with the same name. Is there any under-the-hood switch to fix this behavior? ( BTW my download option is set to "Save files to Downloads without asking me every time" ) Sounds like a simple problem but imagine you need to download 100 images from a web page and every file on the server is named `image.jpg`.
