I posted this merely to get some attention on this issue. Why can't Ubuntu, Mozilla, and Adobe get their respective acts together and solve this?

So-called experts telling everyone to stop trying to view Flash videos is NOT helpful. Many websites are still building them. Also, what about older videos that retain value to view? Mozilla telling everyone that they no longer support Flash plugin and have a replacement in latest Firefox is NOT helpful, since Ubuntu makes it impossible to install it because of their proprietary extensions. Adobe providing an up-to-date Linux version of the plugin is NOT helpful, since Mozilla has blocked them in all Firefox's that come with Ubuntu releases. Ubuntu seemingly ignoring the issue is NOT helpful. So, what's a user to do, go back to Windows?

I will post this everyplace that I can find on the Web until something is done!!

Strange new problem w. firefox. Click on "bookmark this page."

My subject folders/names appear EXCEPT that the top one has a lined box next to the folder icon and instead of the actual folder name, it has another name (in this case, "video" which is the name of one of my already existing folders).

With the box & the name inside of it, it looks as if it is a blank box waiting for me to enter a name, but it's already got "video" written in for me.

In any case, as I use the slider to scroll down thru my bookmarks, the name "video" follows along, overlaying each of the existing folder name in turn.

In other words, if my first bookmarks folder is titled "audio," when I go to bookmark my page, the word "video" appears in place of "audio." As I scroll down, "video" moves as well and appears instead of each successive folder name.

If I park the current page in one of those folders...say, "music" (even though "video" appears in place of "music)" and then access my bookmarks from the upper toolbar, scroll down to the folder where I parked my page ("music," in this example), there it is....in the folder with the correct name..."music."

Once that's done and I want to go to the site again via my bookmark, I simply go to the original folder ("music") and there it is. No moving "video" in sight.

Do I have a virus or worm? I was using FirefoxESR 52.2.0; had not yet installed the 6/29 update to 52.2.1. I got a large red pop-up window with this text:

"Authentication Required" "http://13-555x00000z4-virus.com is requesting your username and password. The site says: "FIREFOX_CRITICAL_ERROR_0xKB5454800_CALL_HELP_DESK: +1(855)*** (Toll-Free)" and boxes to enter my User Name and Password

I could not close this window with the usual upper-right X, and the rest of my Firefox browser window was dead, could not close it, either. Finally killed Firefox with Task Manager; Ctrl-Alt-Delete. I restarted Firefox but all my previous open windows were there, including the big red window, which still kept me from doing anything until being killed with Task Manager again.

I restarted Firefox with all add-ons disabled, downloaded and installed update 52.2.1, and so far I have only opened this Form Support window.

I thought I was using AVG Free, but I can't find that now; nor is an Internet Exporer link available to try those.

Comments, please!

Oh, attached is my screen grab of the red window, and also attempts to start up my AVG again. I did not attempt to run the suggested "avguix.exe" for fear it would now do something 'bad.'

Hi,

We are using certificates that are issued by our Internal CA server to secure the connection between web browser to our internal web servers. Https connection is working fine with IE and Chrome. But we are getting trust error while accessing the internal application using Mozilla. We tried to import our Root and Intermediate Certificate in one of the browser and it is working fine. Hence we are looking for a method in which we can import our Root and Intermediate certificate to all Mozilla browser trusted store in all domain joined computers. Please let me know how we can achieve this?

Thanks in advance!!

Have two Dell desktop computers with same amount of memory. Both running Windows XP Pro and same version of Firefox. Both have the same Firefox options set up. Both are on the same network connected by LAN. One computer started being incredibly slow to open Google home page. Refreshing Firefox always gets it back to normal but after a day - or two at the most - it goes very slow again. Opening any website takes between 30 and 60 seconds. This delay repeats if the browser is closed. When the browser is open, moving between websites - or opening different websites in a new tab, they load quickly. Have tried with and without private browsing - makes no difference. The only thing I've changed on the computer giving problems is to add a gigabit network card. Disabling it and uninstalling it made no difference. Adobe flash needs updating today but was up to date during this problem. Can't think what else to try.

My older Firefox 45.7.0 has no problems with https certificates. I am running this on Linux CentOS 7. I recently downloaded the updated Firefox 59 and ran it. But it cannot run https. It keeps giving me the Connection is not secure (SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER) error for every https site. And when I click the Advanced button, it does not have a button to allow me to add a security exception.

I added our company network proxy, specifically, even though it is set at the system level, just to see if that helped, but no luck.

I can't get to any https search engine (google, duckduckgo, etc.). Please help.

I've started making some promotional videos for my website recently and me not being the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to computer tech, I ask a lot of questions first before I plunge in.

Now the problem I have here is as seen with some other questions that my browser does not support any of the video formats etc etc, giving me an html 5 error.

My software is Camtasia Studio 8, the exact same as one of my friends use, I had to ask him what format do I use for uploading to Youtube, he said to leave it as the default which was MP4 720p, which I did. After uploading was complete on youtube I got the error message; totally bizarre really because I can see videos he has made quite well, with the same settings. Generally I can see 99% of videos on youtube. (although I cannot see any at all on Dailymotion, but that isn't an issue)

My Browser is Firefox 52.9.0, my operating system is Windows XP.

Ok, this is slightly weird, but after some trouble logging in to, well, anything, I discovered that the @ symbol is mapped to the number 2 when shifted (as if it is a US keyboard map) but why? It never was before. I'm using a new keyboard, but the old keyboard does the same now, and, of course, it is only doing it in Firefox.

|\ are wrong - should be tilde and hash, :; are correct. Pretty sure it is the US map.

TIA.

Closing as duplicate. Please continue with the original /questions/1159851 ~J99

I don't know how to fully explain exactly what's happening here, except to say that Firefox is now always on top of everything, even when in a reduced-sized window, and has to be fully minimized to use another window.

None of the suggested answers or responses have worked, or are relevant to this issue from my point of view.

Am I going to have to start using another browser, or is there a legitimate setting that can be altered to stop this behavior that just suddenly started a few days ago?
