I got an error message when playing a movie that said clear cookies & cache so I did that. The movie played after I did that. Now today I opened a weather link and when I clicked on precipitation it didn't work. I clicked on a One Tab link to youtube and it opened youtube home page, not the specific link with all my history and feed lost. And some youtube videos would not play. I tried to open my Outlook email from one tab, but I just got outlook and had to re-sign in. And then I could not open an email. I had to switch to chrome to open the email. I tried to use trouble shoot safe mode. I was able to play a youtube video, but my extensions were then unavailable in safe mode, so no one tab. I am 75 and not very computer proficient, and I am afraid I will make things worse because I cannot predict the outcome of the steps offered. Mozilla/Firefox updates automatically, so I have the latest version of that and I have macOS Catilina version 10.15.5 Is there anyway to undo this mess? I need help at the most basic possible level. Can the clear cookies & cache be undone? Is my youtube history & feed able to be restored some how? Help please!!!

Greetings everyone,

Firefox is my preferred browser and I really prefer the Firefox Engine over Chromium that most other browsers use.

I want to install a backup browser that runs the Firefox Engine in case my Firefox browser has a problem.

I searched a lot and I thought installing this would be the best option: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/developer/

However, I’m worried that installing the Firefox developer edition will change my Firefox installation…

Hi, I am using the open-source code of Firefox Mozilla version 43 for development purposes.

I see a blank page when trying to access the website - https://idp.inera.se/login in old Mozilla Firefox version 43.0 However, this has been fixed in the Firefox 44.0 version.

Could you kindly point me to the security fix or the source-code change that has fixed this issue between releases from 43 to 44?

Thanks!

This bug occurs very randomly, but it seems there have few things in common.

- Occurring on domain level, one domain at once. For example, if Youtube.com stuck, any sub address including each video page is not loaded. Other website and whole browser works fine. - Other program on same PC is not affected, too. - Which page is stop loading is completely random. It might be happen only on a popular, feature-rich site like amazon, google, but not sure. - The timing is also random. Maybe after waking PC up from sleep, but not sure. Frequency of occurrence is once every 1~5 days. - The workaround without restarting browser is 1.)switching to other container tabs(strangely), 2.)opening website on private window. Disabling all the addon manually didn't help.

Since it's randomness, I didn't have any logs about this issue.

My experience of using Firefox's browser is severely impaired by the error message, 'safe connection failed', preventing me access to secure sites, such as my local car boot sale's web site to check out whether or not it will be on, or cancelled due to bad weather. That seemingly fabricated error message and iniquitous is a nuisance and discouraging.

Why I can't I see this? or where can I find it?

Various Fire Fox sources say I need to set up an Firefox Syn account and that I can make a selection to do this in Firefox preferences. However this is no option for this available. There is a single option labeled sync but it doe does not synchronize my laptop to my account and none of my bookmarks etc are up to date.

In the past when I saw an article that I wanted to email to myself, I would click on the envelop icon and it would go to “choose and application to open the mail to link” I would choose if I remember correctly Yahoo and it would open up.

Now the only choice I have if Firefox, and when I click on it nothing happens. What is the problem?

Under”Choose other Applications”, there is nothing to forward that article to me.

Certificate Based Authentication and SmartCard requirements

Hello,

We are using Firefox on macOS to access web services that require Certificate Based Authentication. Our certificates are stored on YubiKeys PIV slots.

If we plug the token, open Firefox and access the website, it works just fine. The Certificate picker is shown and the OS ask for the PIV PIN to validate the access.

However, if we do the request when the token isn't plugged, Firefox does not ask for it, the website deny the authentication and the context is kept in cache. Requesting again the web site with the token added in between does not restart the certificate lookup and we are forced to close Firefox or move to a private window to make it works.

What is the proper way to avoid this issue? Is it a known bug? Is there a way to configure Firefox to always show the certificate picker even if no certificate are found and then reload the list of certificate based on connections events?

Thanks
