I run my own DNS and its managed locally. And while I can move it back manually, I keep finding the setting changed. So I need to find out how I can get control of my machines, OR I have to yank FF from every machine at the house. What can I do to force the machines to use MY DNS and not bypass the security I have put in place.

Having to go to each machine and do this weekly is not a good idea.

When I tried to open hotmail in firefox today, it gives me a blank page. Yesterday I it was working fine and all the yesterdays before that. I have checked the privacy and security and put it in as an exception. I have checked to see if there was a certificate needed or if I could put it in as an exception, but Firefox says it has a certificate and no exception is needed. I've closed out of hotmail and opened it. I've closed out of Firefox and opened it. I've restarted my computer. None of these have worked. It is still a blank page. Please help.

I am getting a stack of these errors preventing me from browsing to secure websites which includes google.com. Luckily my Chrome Browser and Edge Browser work fine. This is just another nail in the coffin for me to close the door on this browser which is just getting more and more unreliable.

For now, I have migrated to Chrome to allow me to go about my business of without Firefox telling me Google.com and many other secure sites are unsafe to browse!

Please bring back the override and accept the risk. I would rather have a warning and transfer risk to me rather than have a draconian rule telling me to use a different browser to resolve the issue. For now, you have forced my choice.

I cannot believe I am the only User to experience this issue. I do not want to delete all my cookies etc as I want to be selective in what I delete but again, this option has been taken away from me as well.

Looking forward to a solution.

Thanks.

I love Firefox and usually work with a well organized set of about 40 tabs that are pinned for easy access. Occasionally i will open a page in "new window" so that I can make better use of multiple screens. If I inadvertently or quickly close the window with all my pinned tabs first, and then close the singular "new" window, all my tabs are gone. and of course the open previous or recently closed window only opens the on with no tabs. Is it possible to save the all tabs, or a "master" or "default" window?

Using the latest version on my 5 y/o windows laptop (as of Sept 18th) and the laptop went totally black, the system could not be booted so I went to a PC repair shop. Technician said its problem is that the SSD is too old and a new laptop is recommended.

I use Firefox since day 1 of that laptop and after a long time I forgot the password. Now I have my new PC and need data from my old Firefox account (not this one), including bookmarks, passwords and read lists.

What to do???

Acronis reported that Firefox browser was infected with ransomware - Now FF will not launch - No permissions

Hi all,

On 19 Sept 2022, upon booting my Macbook Pro, Acronis popped up a message to advise that Firefox was infected with ransomware. It listed the files and asked if I wanted to delete or quarantine the files. I elected to quarantine them so that I could investigate the claim/issue. Acronis reported that the files were now quarantined. From that point on, I could not launch Firefox. I deleted the app, and downloaded the latest FF from Mozilla and installed it. When I attempt to launch it, a popup states that I do not have the required permission to launch the app. (see image) I have checked Acronis and have taken a screen shot of the problem files (see image). In an effort to clear the Macbook Pro of any residual issues, I ran a full scan with CleanMyMac X MAS, and cleared all caches and redundant files. This ran and reported the job done and zero malware found. Kaspersky Total also reports no malware found. I downloaded the current Mac release of FF again and installed it, but still cannot launch it because I don’t have the relevant permissions. The app properties have been checked and as Admin, I have all relevant permissions. However I still cannot launch FF browser. Any advice/recommendations would be welcome, as Firefox is my main browser, after Safari.

Hello. I have an online bookstore that links through Amazon in order to allow my visitors to purchase my books. With my latest book entry (not the dozen others from the past) I am suddenly gettting this error message (SEE ATTACHED FILE) below about embedded links. Is there a way I can get a workaround? I am also sending this request to my hosting site (Squarespace) to see if they have a workaround. The odd part is my other dozen books, which were linked many years ago, do not display this error when their embedded link is clicked.

10.4.22 Yesterday I had an encounter with a browser product called the wave which uses a logo deceptively similar to the swirling fox logo used for Firefox. However, it was green and upon closer inspection it was not a fox in the swirl. Perhaps coincidentally, and perhaps not, I was simultaneously unable to open Firefox, when I tried, I opened a Firefox browser template with no content, it could not be used and it could not be exited even using task manager and had to be closed by restarting my machine. Wave was not listed among my apps and hence could not be uninstalled so I simply deleted the files only to later learn, when Firefox continued to misbehave, that some wave files survived deletion. Upon deleting those I was able to use Firefox. These problems prompted me to find out where Firefox was installed and if the files were extant. This led to a discovery that Firefox was installed in 3 different locations, to-wit: (1) C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox; (2) C: Users\Jeff\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox; (3) C:\windows\ProgramFiles\Mozilla Firefox. #1 ultimately was and is the one I was able to use. It was created 11.2.13 shortly after I bought the machine. #3 was created 10.3.22, modified 9.30.22 and accessed 10.3.22 and #2 was created, modified and accessed 10.3.22 and may have been the one I intentionally installed when I could not use Firefox. Perhaps installation #3 was your doing or perhaps Wave’s doing.

In the past you have expressed an interest in knowing about persons or entities who use your intellectual property (e.g. a registered trademark) without your knowledge. I cannot add images because I intentionally removed all of the wave software I could find. I opened "troubleshooting" through the help utility and selected "share data" but am not certain you will get it. Please advise if you need anything further from me. After the above I was and am now able to use Firefox.

When I am using a web application; ie office365, bank app, etc. If i hit "command p" to print or go to "file-print"....it makes me save as PDF...then i need to go to finder and locate the pdf and print from there.....it has been doing this for many months.....I am saving all kinds of files unnecessarily and a lot of time is lost with all theses extra steps.....any suggestions?

Note: if i use other web browsers it doesn't do this......or if I open office365 documents on the desktop version, it doesn't do this...they will print correctly.

I have Autofill turned off and have also gone into about:config and set to False all form autofilling options. Yet FF continues to autofill my first and last name into respective fields in a form I use for my customer contacts in a web-based business software I use.

It does that when the fields are already filled with a customer contact's' names, as well as when I start with an empty form to enter in a new customer contact.

I don't even know how FF got my name nor where to go to delete it so it will stop autofilling it.

What's the solution?

Their answer, switch to Chrome - Mozzilla creates too many problems. I am NOT switching, and am wondering if there is a setting I can change for it to work for me? Please help - I do not like Google!! Thank you

I love using Firefox but was very surprised. First thing I do is run anti spyware software to clear all the cookies, etc. Then, I opened a private window and access some of my private information. Closed the browser. Then ran the anti spyware again only to find 3 files that were found as invasive. I thought if I used the private window I was protected. What happened? Did I misunderstand?
