All downloads fail instantly even after uninstalling, deleting, and purging data on my computer. I've gone through safe mode, disabeling any and all programs related to antivirus and connection (PIA and Malwarebytes) and not a single file will even start to dowload. They fail and end up as corrupted clutter in my Download folder.

PS: The only way I was able to reinstall was via Chrome. Its only a problem on Firefox.

workintexas.com gives error SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP

When trying to load the website www.workintexas.com, I receive the following error message:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.workintexas.com. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). Error code: SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP

This appears to be affecting Firefox on several of my devices: Ubuntu/Linux, maOS, and Android. The error does not appear to be effecting Lynx on Ubuntu, Safari on macOS or Chrome on Android.

I've tried the following troubleshooting steps on Firefox 69.0.2 running on Ubuntu to try to resolve this:

  • Updated software on Ubuntu
  • Restarting computer
  • Cleared History/Cookies/Cache
  • Check to make sure TLS and SSL setting were set to default
  • Checked Network setting in Firefox
  • Tried disabling IPv6
  • Tried accessing with Firefox in Safe Mode

I had previously accessed this website less than two days ago on this same browser.

My instinct says that there's probably something misconfigured on the server - probably with the security certificate - but then why did it work in Lynx, Safari, and Chrome?

Anybody have any ideas what's up?

Since the most recent Firefox update has anyone else found it is not possible to log into various websites / pages requiring personal credentials (ie username, email, password)? There are at least 3 or 4 sites that I have been able to log into for many years, that no longer allow me to access. I have checked and double checked the Privacy & Security tab in Options and none of the Exceptions or Manage Data entries have changed. When I phone the various companies the common answer is do not use Firefox, rather use Microsoft Edge, which works! Please help restore Firefox functionality so that it works!

Recently (a week ago? Could be longer and i didnt notice it) the whole system lags and with it comes a bandwith collapse in regular patterns (roughly every 5 seconds) while firefox is open. As the picture are showing, its only while using Firefox. Neither Edge nor Opera has this.

First picture is Nperf speedtest using Firefox. Second one is same test using MS Edge. Last is CMD ping to my router while FF was open.

I already started FF without addons, refreshed it, and also fully uninstalled (including the appdata folders) and reinstalled it, but its still happening.

Recently Search Suggestions stopped working, I now have to type in full URLs where previously after a few letters I'd usually be directed to the correct URL, especially with sites I visit often. I checked in Preferences and everything is turned on as it should be. I tried turning Search Suggestions off and then turning them back on but that did not help. I have not tried anything further since I'm a bit concerned I might make things worse.

Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Everything about Firefox Quantum is great.... EXCEPT for one legacy feature that many of us loved & STILL miss terribly. It's this horrible, blocky SQUARE TABS, that we're stuck... no, CURSED with!!! Do something, please! The curved tabs in the Australis UI design, was the feature I loved the most. Please consider giving those of us who loved it an option switch to the Curved Tabs, just like in the following link:

https://qph.fs.quoracdn.net/main-qimg-be8c6360fbb8eaacd0e4f721218c3f40

Fine, let the Square Tabs be the default, for those who prefer it. But please, please, please, give the rest of us the option to switch to the beloved & much missed, aforementioned, Curved Tabs feature. You won't know how popular it actually is unless you give people the option in the first place. Many thanks for your kind consideration.

When I visit Google Maps I get a general view of where I am at the city level. However, for quite some time, clicking on the locator dot gives the message "Google Maps does not have permission to use your location."

If I check my location settings using hamburger > preferences > Privacy & Security > Permissions > Location, I see a handful of websites in a dropdown list (none of them are Google Maps), with no way of adding others. The box for "Block new requests . . ." is NOT checked.

I don't see any other location-blocking settings.

Some websites will prompt me to allow location access; allowing it never adds the site to my whitelist. Sometimes I just keep getting prompted to allow access in a loop.

I am using Firefox Quantum 69.0.2 on OSX.

Extension-wise, I am using DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, but disabling it does not fix the problem.
