Ever since Firefox updated to the new version I've been having constant crashes. I've tried restarting in Safe Mood which doesn't help. Pretty much Firefox will open, say it's not responding, and then by the time it looks like it's about to restore my tabs it crashes. I had to do a refresh and transferred the backup files from an older session which worked, but then it eventually crashed again. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and tried opening my older profile but it keeps happening. I really need to restore my previous session. There's nothing with my computer that seems to be causing it. I did have 2 windows open with about 8,000 tabs total which I'm sure could be part of the reason, but it never really had trouble before and only just started crashing since the update. Is there any way to fix this without starting over? I read that this is a bug that others have dealt with previously.

Some additional information. I'm on a 64-bit Windows 10 PC.

I am on Linux Mint, Firefox 100.0 and I am trying to access a website, https://www.citapreviadnie.es:38188 (requires personal DNIe certificate). However, I keep getting SSL_ERROR_UNKNOWN_CA_ALERT. If I view the certificate of the website,

1. Firefox doesn't tell me which part of the chain is invalid or not trusted (or I don't see it) 2. When I try to download and import each of the CA certificates, I get an alert saying "This certificate is already installed as a certificate authority." 3. If I try to import the whole chain, I get another alert telling me "This is not a certificate authority certificate, so it can’t be imported into the certificate authority list." 4. If I try to add a permanent exception to the site, I see "This site attempts to identify itself with invalid information", but if I click "view certificate" I'm back to step 1, and adding the exception does not have any effect.

What am I supposed to do now?

A couple users at our site intermittently receive a SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT error when navigating to Google in Firefox. This happens in Version 99.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 computers. When the issue occurs, users can navigate to other websites without issues. Navigating to Google in a different browser works no problem. Restarting the browser will resolve the issue. Clearing cookies and site data has no effect. Users can also refresh the page after some time and the issue will go away.

Any idea as to why this is happening?

You actually have an egregious error in your install procedure/program. 1) you fail to tell folks/warn them close down i) FF when installing the update and/or ii) save and delete all open sites in the FF being upgraded. 2) there is a failure to TELL us reboot FF after the install.

Doing research and writing all day long as I do, I actually hold a number of reference sites open in FF as I work.

My friend who happens to understand all this computer stuff tells me that the open sites on my FF is what impeded the successful install . . . .

The other grumble I have with you-all is that it has taken me too much time to try and find a way to respond to you with the information needed to solve this problem for the FF community . . . .

I am a paying/donator to FF . . . and I must tell you I am beyond disappointed by all this dropped ball on sensible communications practice!

Hello!

I was using this laptop for everything for a few years. Now I wanted to use this for work also. Previously all my bookmarks and logins were synced via a single email account. It was easy to use across all devices. Now since I want to use this for my work also, I decided to segregate my work stuff to a new windows account. So I created a new windows account. Obviously Firefox created a new profile and it was clean. No problems there.

So I wanted to use my original email for this new windows account and new firefox profile to sync across devices. So I created a new email, added it to my firefox account, made it the primary email then deleted my original email from that firefox account so that I can use it to sync firefox in my work user account.

But, Firefox is not allowing me to. There is no "signup" option for sync. Only "sign in". It continually asked me to sign in from my primary account, so I had to sign in from my primary account to make this post. Doesnt firefox offer 2 different "sync profiles" for the same device? Or Am I doing something wrong? Please help.

After recent latest update 99.0.1 Mozilla is slow to start. It seems to hang. I use Google as my homepage. Am Windows 7, 64 bit. I tried refresh and made Mozilla my home page. No difference. Chrome opens fine. Was really disappointed with refresh. It dropped a number of icons for shortcuts on my desktop - ????? which were a real pain to replace because making shortcuts with Mozilla is not possible without changing the User Account Control setting in Control Panel which I was unaware of but found after searching for 1/2 hour. I have no idea when this changed nor why it did on the Mozilla side because I have been using Windows 7 for 12 years. I am sending this using Chrome as my browser.

Hello, Every time I restart Firefox or it crashes or power cuts or anything, place.sqlite file gets corrupted and I have to replace the new file with the .corrupt file. This has been happening for over a year now, but my computer is always on and I turn it off maybe once every 4-5 months unless I'm forced to restart by a software or by power cuts or stuff. Lately I have been having issues with my Windows and I have to restart my computer quite often and it is very annoying. This happens whether I close Firefox with the X or using the Exit button or even if I keep it open and restart the computer. My places file is 75MBs. I have the same one since 2014. I'm using Windows 10 and latest Firefox edition. Any ideas?

I have had it with Firefox playing cop. I really have. I have a site that I visit frequently but these past two updates have now broken my ability to sign into the site at all, even in private mode. All I get is the shield and human icons with the strike-through and the error message on the user name/password field that says: This Connection Is Not Secure. Logins Entered Here Could Be Compromised. Learn More.

I've hit the escape button, tried private windows, done everything I can including resetting which was my last resort and which I hate doing, there's no more whitelist, no way to bypass anything, this is totally unacceptable that I cannot get past this. Firefox is becoming more useless to me as they try to become more and more in control of what I can and cannot do. If there is no override to this, then I have to find a different browser because it's pretty useless to use one browser for some sites and another for other sites, don't you think? So if someone has a workaround for this problem, can you please tell me what it is?

I am currently using Firefox v. 100.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Home v. 21H2. Recently, I have been unable to get package tracking information from the website fedex.com, nor can I log into my FedEx account. When trying to track a package, the FedEx site displays the following message: "Unfortunately we are unable to retrieve your tracking results at this time. Please try again later." Likewise, when trying to log in, the site shows this message: "We are having trouble establishing a connection. Please refresh the page." Repeated attempts in both cases have failed. In the past, the fedex.com site has functioned flawlessly with Firefox. Moreover, I do not experience either of these problems with Google Chrome.

Please advise.

Why is firefox automatically downloading strange files I've never seen before? (MEUIVFJ-.htm and 3tHMwYhc) They look a little untrustworthy. My download dropdown suddenly showed me that one had been downloaded, and then a while later the other one was downloaded. Are these actual Mozilla files? Or are they some kind of scam/trojan/spyware? I just realized that two were downloaded last month as well.
