I have a Synology NAS which is set up for HTTPS using a certificate from LetsEncrypt (Synology's recommendation) However when I try to access the NAS via my Firefox browser (v79.0) Initially I get an error. The "i" in the URL box advises me "Connection not secure" However, when I press the "try again" button I can access the NAS as normal. Checking the padlock in the URL box it confirms it confirms I have already set an exception to this login. This happens every time I restart my Windows 10 pc. However, if I just close the browser and try again during the same session it connects straight away. It is not a showstopper but I would like to get to the bottom of it with your help... Why will it stop me on first attempt but always give me access when I press Try again?

I use the dropdown in the search bar on Firefox (called "Awesome Bar," I think?). However, there are search engines which are clearly pinned. For example, @amazon or "Search with Amazon" or "Search with Google."

How can I delete them?

I have searched through this issue in the Community, and the solutions there are not available to me. I cannot "Hold" the item, and press delete. I cannot "right-click" on the item. I cannot highlight the choice and delete, either through right-clicking or hitting the delete key.

Please advise. I want the other choices to be available.

Thanks.

I received a FireFox update today and lost all of my bookmarks. I tried to sign into Firefox Sync using my work email and I couldn't remember my password. I tried to reset it and when I get to the screen to enter the new password, I get a warning that says Undeliverable Email. I've tried multiple times to reset it and no luck. Any ideas on how this can be resolved?

Hello: I am traying to go in google.com and I get:

Secure connection failed An error has occurred while connecting to www.google.com.

   The page you are trying to view cannot be displayed because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Contact the website owners to report this problem.

It's working fine with other browsers. I just updated today to 79.0 (64 bit). In the same network other people is working fine with same version.

Any help? Rober

i clicked never remember for a certain web site and it is not showing up in manager exceptions box in the privacy and security for passwords or saved passwords. i have also added to there saved passwords and it will not save or show password. also when i put address in for show logins it will only show site and no extra letter or numbers for site that i typed in. why won't it let save site name as i typed it in, i have also cut / copied / paste the exact name or site i want to save and it still only shows site up to the .com and nothing else after it. i have removed Firefox and save in and reinstalled it and same thing keeps happening. looked all over help and nothing works. thanks for the help and stay safe out there.

Moving my passwords from old profile to profile in a newer version of firefox

Dear community,

Transferring my passwords from an old profile backup (v 49) to a profile in a newer version of Firefox (v 77.01). I'm copying across the logins.json and key4.db files like it says here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_passwords. but it still doesn't seem to show my passwords in the new Firefox version when I look in the preferences. I did happen to notice that the key file version is named 'key3.db' in the old profile whereas the corresponding file in the new profile is 'key4.db'. I don't think they're compatible. My question is can I move my passwords from the old profile to the new profile in Firefox v 77.01? Please can you tell me if I can do it offline/locally like this? I don't want to do it with Firefox sync. I'm currently having problems signing into Firefox sync so that isn't an option.

Kind regards,

Matt

Please can someone explain to me. I go to a different place to work and I go on firefox and login to my account to sync all the passwords and saved websites needed to do my work. Finishing my work I am clearing all the history from today (yes, ticking all the boxes) and disconnecting from my Firefox account. HOWEVER, even doing it a few times and restarting firefox didn't remove all the Google accounts etc.

I don't want to sound like a drama queen but how can I trust Firefox? What was I supposed to do to ACTUALLY clear my activity to leave the place hoping for people using the PC in the following days to not see my accounts! Any advice will be much appreciated.

PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

So, please inform me what happened with ver. 74.0 ? By ver. 74.0 is no more supported some older security protocols which might have the above website, or this is a bug by the new ver. 74.0 ? Please inform me how this issue can be fixed ?
