I'm sure many will recall this symptom, from years past, that occasionally re-emerges

You close Firefox, and want to relaunch, but nothing happens. There is no accompanying message announcing that "Firefox is already running, but not responding". You must "end task" in the Task Manager.

Also, why are there so many instances of Firefox running in the Task Manager. Is that related to the problem?

This has been happening for a while now, before 88.01. Is there a fix? ________________________________________ Firefox 88.01, Windows 20h2

Hi, I just discovered a problem setting secondary email when both primary and secondary is on the same domain, gmail.com.

Following the instructions:

Set up secondary email

The error that come up says that the secondary email must be different than my account email, but it is, the only common thing is the domain.

So this is a bug, please fix.

hello, i searched a bit and refreshed FF, started in FF in safe mode(currently in safe mode), shifted to work offline then shifted back, as possible solutions. No proxy is selected in network preferences. All that did was make it so whatsmyip.com now says no proxy when it said proxy in use before. it's showing las vegas as my location this time. My real location is hawaii and all my other browsers show this. The "problem" is months old. I have to verify that im not a robot regularly, and certain sites give an error 403, (iirc), but work fine with safari because it isn't using a proxy. Is it possible there is some sort of malware causing this? mac os10.12.6 FF88.0.1 (64bit)

I can't figure out how to make the vertical scrollbar actually usable.

Firefox has been doing this to me for the past couple months, but Ill get an annoying notification saying I havent updated firefox, even though firefox is updated. This used to happen on the "nightly" version of firefox everyday, which is expected, but on a normal release, this is not supposed to happen.

How can I fix? This seems to be a bug - one location says its "up to date" the other is a notification telling me to "update".

See attached screenshot with update icon in the menu, while the "About" menu says its up-to-date.

If I go into about:config, app.update.url.manual is set to: https://www.mozilla.org/%LOCALE%/firefox/

After installed some expired certs on a server in house, I try and bring up a management page that worked fine prior. The error is: The server presented a certificate that contains an invalid encoding of an integer. Common causes include negative serial numbers, negative RSA moduli, and encodings that are longer than necessary.

Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_INVALID_INTEGER_ENCODING

How can this be worked around, a setting of some sort maybe?

Thanks for any input

Undo last move in GMail inside Firefox on Desktop Machine

A;;,

I run Kubuntu 19.04 LTS with FireFox and have several GMail accounts open at once, right now 8, and in the main GMail, I selected "Move to Folder" and typed "X" in the popup, but when it moved it showed "Moving to Y" and I did not catch the "Undo" popup fast enough and being busy, executed several commands before I saw the error.

Going to CMail help almost all the HOWTOs on this subject are form "DROID" and not the desktop, so I'm clueless on how to effect the actual "indo" or do the following:

  1. Look in my FF or GMail history to find that move cmd,
  2. Either "undo" or
  3. Get the list of files in that directory and "select" + "move" to the right directory,

Oh! Gmail definitely lies telling you labels are the same as directories, but a total lie, as choosing a label only marks the file, keeping it in the "inbox" but with a directory a "move to" command actually moves the file out of the inbox into the directory specified.

I hope someone know this answer and I will also post this on the GMail help forum!

Cheers!

Hi there, When accessing history for today, selecting everything with CTRL+A then copying the selection with CTRL+C the only data copied to the clipboard is the URL [Location]. I have Name, Location & Most Recent Visit selected on the header ribbon. I am not using any clipboard utilities so I imagine it's pure Firefox inspiration. Is there a special trick for making Firefox recognise the PC standard CTRL+A and/or CTRL+C? Thanks

In any modern browser, if you go to https://donotcall.gov and file a complaint about a harassing robocall, if the browser's "form auto-fill" function is enabled it will automatically "remember" the phone number about which you filed the complaint and save the robo-caller's number for the next time you use a Web form that prompts for a phone number.

My suggestion is that Firefox should not do this.

You might argue that I should address my complaint to the website's owner, but you all know it's the government and I figured that the Firefox developer community might be able to come up with a solution. Think of it as an improvement by which Firefox can be made "better" than other browsers.

I recently downloaded Firefox in order to try to install it on a Windows VM. When I download the regular (online) installer and checked it with VirusTotal, one of the VirusTotal "engines" detected it as malicious. Therefore, I located the "offline" installer file on your website and ran it inside the VM.

A few minutes after I performed the installation, I got a "setup.exe" alert box saying "The system detected an overrun of a stack-based buffer in this application. This overrun could potentially allow a malicious user to gain control of this application."

Note: I cannot be sure this error actually pertains to Firefox (as it's a remote desktop connection to a shared VM so maybe somebody else was trying to install something). But the error did pop up shortly after I ran the Firefox installer. Also, this only happened once.

VM information: 4 CPUs; 16GB memory (1.28 GB active); hard disk 150 GB. Compatibility: ESXi 6.5 an later (VM version 13)

OS information: Windows 2019 Datacenter; Processor: Intel Xeon CPU ES-2697 v3 @ 2.60GHz 2.59GHz (4 processors) Installed RAM: 16.0 GB; 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor.
