I don't know what's going on with Firefox Mac 68, but now, when I visit my favorite Irish newspaper ( https//:www.independent.ie ), I can neither log in, nor sign in , nor create a new account, nor view any videos??? *None* of these problems occur with the "other three" (Chrome, Safari or Opera). What in teh world is going on with FIrefox? (my favorite!)

Secure Connection Failed

error message: An error occurred during a connection to ###.###.#.##. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

The url I am attempting to connect to is my Pandora for Business account. In the Pandora instructions, they state that when this error message appears, I should create an exception, which I have done. However, Firefox still blocks the connection and I have been unable to find a workaround to gain access and manage my playlist/account. Any ideas?

I always leave form autofill settings off. Yet in the last several Firefox versions, email addresses pop up as suggestions when I use login forms. I read the help articles. I triple-checked settings. Different login forms suggest various addresses (I have many), which is also odd.

I read that this might be caused by extension conflicts. Is there a list? I wanted to know if this is a known issue before I try to troubleshoot it.

Thank you.

PS: I'm pretty unhappy that My Firefox Account exposes my email address username in this forum. I changed it in Firefox Accounts, but here it still shows. Since this forum is world readable and I can't delete my message, I'm going to delete my account.

Please moderator delete this question for me.

Hi! Regarding the popup-windows "New Bookmark" and "Edit This Bookmark": a. the popup windows are far too small!! Impossible to drag them large to have bigger overvie finding bookfolders. b. the popup windows do not have a search function at all. c. the mini-display of the website to be bookmarked inside these popup-windows is absolutely a non-necessary feature: it only takes space away which could be used for other more useful feature like a., b. Is there a way to change the popup-window somewhere in the deeper FF settings??? thanks & best

Hi!

another qiuestion:

How to open the Bookmark Library in several tabs or windows, each with another folder view? It open only in ONE Library window/tab, and when you want to copy or move bookmarks, it is very unpractical to each time scroll down the left sidebar to find the foldersa and subfolders.

Enhancements: 1. ALLOW LIBRARY TO OPEN IN AS MANY TABS AND WINDOWS AS YOU LIKE 2. MAKE THAT THE SEARCH LIBRARY FIELD ALSO INCLUDES FOLDERS IN SEARCH RESULT LIST 3. MAKE THE LIBRARY APPEARING AND BEHAVING LIKE MAC FINDER WINDOWS !

thanx !

Firefox drag & drop crashes entire OS, what's happening?

Hi everyone, experiencing a problem with firefox on my Macbook. When I try and drag & drop an image from file to an online uploader, it crashes my entire OS.

The file shrinks down to thumbnail size when hovering over the drag & drop space (as normal) but then gets stuck at that point. Then, whenever I try to click on anything at all (start-up menu, a different program) the thumbnail just appears under my cursor, I cannot click away and the whole OS becomes unresponsive. My only out as far as I can see is a hard reset.

Has anyone else experienced this problem and how do I fix it? Thanks in advance for any input.

EDIT: the problem is also present when uploading conventionally. The file uploads but then my cursor is stuck in a form of "force select" - for example if I move it over another program it'll just then drag that program around with it and refuse to drop it, thus screwing up my entire OS. I even managed to CMD+Q quit out of Firefox this time, but once initiated the problem doesn't disappear.

In past versions, if I wanted to delete a cookie, I could open that area of settings and do it quickly. Now, since cookies are combined with site data, I have to wait for the calculation of stored data to complete before I can click on Manage and edit my cookies. That can take five minutes (or longer). I don't mind waiting a little, like for clearing the cache (although on old versions, that calculation could take 15 minutes), but it makes no sense to have to wait at all just to clean out some cookies. Those should be readily available like they used to be. Please take cookies out of site data like they used to be.

For months now my firefox is quitting at least once a day and for no apparent reason. Then when i restart it (and/or restore it), the settings of firefox are back to a random one: like for instance the "home setting" sets to yahoo, whereas I always change it back to ecosia.

I tried to update firefox, to restart with "restart with add-ons disabled", to update my OS, etc etc.

Thank you for your help!

Here is a gallery where the problem occurs: http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/bespoked-uk-handmade-bicycle-show-gallery/ The links to the homepage from the logo stopped working in Firefox 18-24 months ago. It appears that there is an incompatibility between the cyclingnews website and the Mozilla browser. Perhaps the fix has to be made on the cyclingnews end, I don't know. The cyclingnews website is fully functional with Google Chrome, but I prefer to use Firefox to support a smaller company and for privacy.

Up until 66.0.1 I could open an excel or word document from the intranet home page that I created. You click on the link and a dialog box would pop up asking if you wanted to open the file or save the file. Now, when you click on the same link, it only gives you the option to save the file. I don't need to save it, it's already saved. I need to open it and work on it. How can I get 66.0.1 to function in the same way as older versions of firefox so that I can open the aforementioned office files? Thanks. Wayne

Good morning,

I'm the owner of the following website: horbiter.com

In the last few days each time I surf my website's subpages like this one, for example:

https://www.horbiter.com/patek-philippe-nautilus-5726-1a-014-recensioni-orologi/

I get a non-secure connection message back. It is quite strange since the https certificate is correctly installed.

Moreover, for your further information, I get this message while using Firefox on Mac, weheras everything is working correctly on Firefox for Windows.

Please find enclosed a print screen of the page cited above too.

I look forward to your feedback

Kind regards Gaetano Cimmino

I open Firefox and select a site to go to and get a drop down box

The proxy moz-proxy://us-west-009.whiskergalaxy.com:443 is requesting a username and password. The site says "Windscribe-Proxy"

Even after filling in username and password and hitting OK the box closes, the screen goes white, the site tries to connect and starts to open then immediately closes and the drop down box opens again. This keeps repeating.

I noticed if I open another window while this is going on the second window loads no problem. I realize I can clear everything and start clean but I'm sure you realize what a huge pain in the ass that is.

Firefox recently updated, like in the past week or so.

I took a screen shot but I cannot add it to this for some reason. I have also contacted Windscribe to see what might be going on on their side. FYI Things have been working perfectly between the two platforms until now.

I've been experiencing computer crashes which have prompted me to begin monitoring the console system log. In doing so, I've noticed that I regularly receive these sandbox message seemingly every time I open a new tab. Regardless of whether or not this is attributing to the crashes, I'd like to get a handle on this particular situation and either repair the sandbox relationship or disable further attempts at accessing entirely. Any assistance on the matter is greatly appreciated.

A sample of the system log messages can be found here: https://pastebin.com/ahQ6gG4Q

Firefox Quantum v. 65 allows the user to block "all cookies (will cause websites to break)". However, a cookie designated "marketingapis.com" continues to appear in the list of cookies whenever the browser is used. When attempting to block the cookie through the managing permissions option, the blocked cookie disappears from the list of blocked cookie list and appears in the regular cookie list whenever the browser is subsequently relaunched. I would be grateful for any advice how to prevent this cookie from reappearing.

If this is a cookie set by Firefox, information should be disclosed upfront, and users should have a method to prevent its use (or opt out) for all purposes.

I'm using 66.0, and I received an update this morning. I'm on the Paypal website looking at the Summary. I can go to the Paypal funds page and the Paypal credit page, which are both internal to Paypal. However, I am unable to go the Paypal Mastercard, which should take me to a third-party bank, Synchrony. I get an error message "Looks like this action is not supported. Please return and report this error so that we can support it in the future. (invalid client_id or redirect_uri)". I've restarted Firefox in Safe Mode, but no dice. I've refreshed Firefox, no dice. Any ideas? Third-party cookies? It worked up until today. Also, the PayPal site works just fine on Safari.

Whenever I quit and re-open all of my extension settings (adblock filters, userscripts, etc.) have reset. I've tried restoring my profile from backups and manually changing extension settings, but it all disappears again when I relaunch Firefox. This has only started happening since yesterday when I updated to the latest version (66.0.2, from 65.0.1).

Update: I have tried "refreshing" Firefox and reinstalling extensions and am still having the same problem.

Update 2: I have just uninstalled and removed all trace of Firefox from my system, then re-downloaded, and this is still happening.

Update 3: I have now downgraded to 65.0.2 and am no longer having this problem ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
