Dear Firefox support,

I would like to share with you that your certdata.txt file is including 2 expired CA certificates: | Expiration date | Certificate CN | | 2019-07-06 | Class 2 Primary CA | | 2019-07-09 | Deutsche Telekom Root CA 2 |

New certificates should be retrieved for these 2 CA, or they should be deleted from the certdata.txt as they are no longer valid.

certdata.txt References:

 nss: 'https://hg.mozilla.org/projects/nss/raw-file/default/lib/ckfw/builtins/certdata.txt',
 central: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/raw-file/default/security/nss/lib/ckfw/builtins/certdata.txt',

Thanks for your help.

My student calendar on https://myportal.unitec.ac.nz/ displays my classes 12 hours earlier than they are. I have checked and the timezone on my laptop is definitely set to the correct timezone. I did a search and discovered that this problem could be because I have privacy.resistFingerprinting set to true and therefore my browser is giving the timezone UTC. I checked this via the browser console. I am in New Zealand so my timezone is 12 hours ahead of UTC so hence the 12 hour difference.

I am mentioning this here as I didn't want to bother the folks on Bugzilla until I knew for sure that it was a bug. So I'm asking, is this the expected behaviour for users that have privacy.resistFingerprinting set to true? or is this a bug? I am pretty sure that this problem did not exist earlier in the week when I was running Firefox Developer Edition 69.0b3 (64-bit) (Mac OS); I am now running 69.0b4 and this is when the problem seems to have popped up. So I'm just asking if this is what I should expect if wanting to prevent browser fingerprinting?

The calendar is only viewable for users that are logged in, unfortunately.

While trying to view "Hurricane Barry Mission Day 4 - Vehicle Cam", "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Otx7ZJUDStw" on youtube I cannot see the video just the progress circle. The chat portion is viewable and actively updated. I am viewing this on a Mac running high sierra. I also have a linux workstation which has no problems displaying the feed and is on the same network.

Can anyone offer an explanation?

Click on "View Gallery", the pop-up box appears, but it just shows the spinning dots not the photos. This happens with all the restaurant galleries on WDW's site not just this particular one. Works fine in Chrome.

I verified FF and Flash are updated, enabled all pop-ups, restarted in safe mode. No joy. Next troubleshooting steps?

Why does Mozilla schedule releases of Firefox (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Release_Management/Calendar) while the current release if full of bugs that will be carried over to the new release? I have stayed with 52 simply because the higher the version, the more freedom that is removed because of security while the real problem is that the developers do not know how to write code.

Hello, I have the following issue:

I was watching some videos on youtube when the sound and picture started to stutter. It's like speed was constantly changing from x1 to x0.05 and back again. (It's not speed related) I closed firefox, then instantly got new update and the issue was not solved. It happens on every video but at random time. (The problem might occur at the start or in the middle of the video). What I did so far:

1. Updated my Nvidia Driver: did not helped

2. Checked the video in other browsers: It worked just fine.

3. Changed my Headsets from wireless BT to standard headphones: It did not helped.

4. Looked for similar issues on forums, but provided solutions did nothing.

5. Opened OBS to record the footage. Then it got interesting. It solved the problem. Opened OBS has fixed that issue.

But I don't want to use Firefox with opened OBS so pls help. Thank you for your time :)

Firefox will not play any type of audio. There's no indication of audio being played in Firefox in the soundmixer either. Audio works perfectly fine in all other applications. Steps I've already taken to try and solve the issue:

- Reinstall audio drivers - Remove cache, cookies and browser history - Refresh Firefox (remove addons / reset settings) - Reinstall Firefox - Rebooting system in between those steps

I've made sure my audio devise is set as default obviously.

I will like to know why there are so many downloads on a single day. Is this some kind of DDOS attack?

I just signed up for Firefox Monitor. Most of the accounts it says were breached are ones I recognize, and I have changed my passwords. However, it also says there were data breaches affecting two sites I do not have an account with at all (Whitepages and Verifications.io). What do I do about those, since I haven't got an account (I don't even know what Verifications.io is), so I don't have a password to change.

One of the reasons I prefer Firefox to Chrome is that when I right-click on a link, I can open the link in a new tab.

I usually read news in Chrome because, on some sites, I open 20 new tabs without moving from the main news page. I can then move to the tabs, read one, close it, move to the next, etc.

I would like to move my news reading to Firefox, but I would like to be able to choose whether (or not) to open a new tab at the time the tab is being opened.

Is this possible?

I have a website (oakmontwx.eu5.net) and the front page shows up properly, but when I open the front page locally I get a network error. I am not using localhost on my computer, but I have a javascript routine which reads a text file every 10 seconds. The network error occurs when the page tries to read the file, and only half the webpage appears. On the website there is no problem.

This only started occurring today after Firefox did an auto update. I have refreshed FF and also reinstalled it but the problem persists. The page shows up properly in MS Edge and Safari.
