Recently Firefox always starts in firstrun mode. I have tried various ways to stop this happening. I have: 1. Refreshed Firefox 2. I dont have Zencast, Mcafee or Norton 360. Nothing else on my machine changed. 3. I don't have a user.js file.

I have been using Firefox for years as a developer. Its becoming unusable for me. I can't waste so much time trying to get it to work.

So I've changed my e-mail address, problem is I can't log in to my Firefox account under Sync. It asks me to confirm my account through my old e-mail address. I can't do that because I've deleted my old e-mail address!

So I need a way to either update my e-mail address or delete my Firefox account all together, so that I can start a new account with my new e-mail address.

When I log onto secure websites to pay credit cards etc. the initially send me a text or e-mail so that it verifies my computer. It recognizes my computer up until I do a Firefox update, at which time I have to redo the entire verification process again because the sites no longer recognize my computer. Firefox is currently trying to get me to update my browser but I'm avoiding it because I have payments to make next Weds. and I really don't want to go through the constant re-authentication. Can I stop updates or is there some method to prevent it from making my computer no longer recognized?

I just created a new sync account on my desktop, but when I logged on my laptop, the prompt asks me to create a new account. I am sure that my user name and password are right. Both devices have Firefox 51.0.1 Laptop is Windows 10 and desktop is Windows 7.

I had this problem since last year, but only recently did I urgently need to since my bookmarks and passwords.

Thanks

Hi all

e.g. ask for 'xyz.com/dir1/dir2/abc.php' but get 'xyz.com' instead.

If we reload the page immediately it comes up correctly but wait too long and it goes wrong again.

It does this 30 - 40+ times a day! 

Only firefox seems to have this problem. I tried adding 'www' to the front so above would become 'www.xyz.com/dir1/dir2/abc.php' This worked fine for a day or 2 then it started going wrong again. The content of the web page makes no difference - I substituted a 3 byte file for a problem page so it only contained 'abc' = no markup at all and it STILL went wrong.

actual typed url: http://www.sdf-curtains.co.uk/imapTest.php actual page seen: http://www.sdf-curtains.co.uk

are there any settings to adjust? I have not touched about:config I swear (yet!)

Thanks very much

Steven

This is a recent problem that I haven't had before and none of the answers I've seen have solved my problem. Whenever I try to watch a YouTube video, it buffers for a long time. Sometimes I never get past an ad because it will stop two or three seconds in and the only way I can get it going again is to refresh the page. I have to constantly refresh to hopefully get a five second ad or one that I can skip in order to get to the actual video and when I get there, it starts buffering and at that point it either plays after a minute or two or it doesn't play at all. It does the same thing in safe mode. The only time I'm able to watch videos without this problem is in a private window.

I have uninstalled Firefox two times and refreshed multiple times, but nothing seems to be working. Every other website I get on works fine, but videos don't fully load on any of them. Can some please help me, I've been trying to figure this out for hours and I really don't want to use another browser.

In short, I want to be able to bypass certificate warnings.

Yes, I've seen this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1169632 "When there is HSTS(HTTPS Strict Transport Security) set on the server, you cannot add a exception"

In less short, my case (because one needs to always justify one's methods), I set up a subdomain on a separate IP/host and I'm trying to test some project for which I use a webpage as a small visible part. However, the domain uses HSTS (HSTS == very nice).

However, I'm just casually testing something using a subdomain (or even a fake domain, or a real domain pointing to a new server being prepared, maybe using /etc/hosts) pointing to an external or internal IP on some old computer on my LAN or even on my own computer. And that's not possible anymore.

People should always have the option to bypass a warning, and I'm all for the warnings. If anything, there shouldn't have been a box with the option "always remember" ticked by default. There are other cases where this can be useful, some we don't even know yet.

Hi, after updating opening page in new tab via right click gives me blank page. Oh and apparently it's also happened when I entering site via address bar, but clicking a link loads the page normally.

The blank page usually last only around a mere 0.5 second to the dreaded 2 seconds, and after that the page will kind of reloading itself (or maybe start connecting?) and start loading normally. The thing is in some case—around one in twelve—the page stuck at that blank page, and I have to reload the page to fix it.
