Ever since I upgraded to Firefox 63, several trusted websites have stopped loading; instead I get sent to an error page with:

Your connection is not secure

The website tried to negotiate an inadequate level of security.

<www.thestar.com> uses security technology that is outdated and vulnerable to attack. An attacker could easily reveal information which you thought to be safe. The website administrator will need to fix the server first before you can visit the site.

Error code: NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY


This also occurs with https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/63.0.1/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Installer.exe

Is the problem at my end or theirs? If the former, what do I need to do to return to the behaviour for FF 62?

Hi there, since some days i encounter problems with downloading pdf-files. I tried this link http://personendatenbank.germania-sacra.de/books and tried to download a file by clicking "PDF" at any of the links there. I wouldn´t work. I see the download in the history (strg-j) but there is no progress. I encountered the same problem at another site.

Is there a problem with downloadlinks beginning with http:// ???

In Chrome for example the link works without any problems

I have added https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gfycat-click-to-gif/

It shows up in the Extensions section under "about:addons" and it is enabled. However in my toolbar, there is no icon for it and therefore I cannot use it. I've tried using the "Customize" feature but none of my extensions show up there, so I cannot drag them to the toolbar.

I would attach screenshots, but even that isn't working on this support page form.

So this happened today: - Firefox did an update while I was playing. - Suddenly I noticed the icon became a blank page and when I clicked it Windows informed me, that firefox isn't on my PC. (Uninstalled itself for some reason?) - Since then Firefox won't ask if I want to save my tabs so I have to manually restore previous session every time. ShowQuitwarning is set ot be enabled. I tried deleting/renaming sessionstore.js and prefs.js - When I restored ShowQuitwarning it says it isn't a boolean, but a string variable. I assume something got corrupted, by have no idea what and how to restore besides a full reinstall? (In the meantime the option seems to have vanished fully, it is not present in about:config)

Firefox 63.0 x64 not preserving window size and launches taller than screen size

I've tried deleting the xul file and other recommended solutions.

I have both bookmarks and command toolbars enabled.

Display is 3840x2160, Microsoft Windows 10 x64 has Display Scale and Layout set to change the size of text, apps, and other items at 175%.

Launching Firefox will always launch the window taller than the screen height (2160) having the command bar above the top of the screen and the bottom of the browser below the bottom toolbar.

Resizing and then quitting and relaunching will launch Firefox at resized window size. Firefox settings are set to remove all cookies and cache upon exit. Exiting with File->Exit or clicking the top right X both seem to work.

After some period of time, typically after a screen lock or reboot, a new launch will revert back to the old size that goes off the screen.

I need to figure out how to make the resize sticky.

First,I'm french... I have been searching for a while now. I just don't find the answer to my problem. The answer is probably there, in front of me, maybe it's just the terms used to describe the problem/solution I don't understand.

I'll try to make myself as clear as possible.

As you can see on the image, It took me a while to organise (customize) the 24 Top Site on three lines.

The question is :

How can I save this page so I won't have to reorganise all 24 icons and links next time I reinstall firefox. This page won't synchronize with the bookmarks when reinstalling the browser. There mus be a way so save this page, isn'it ?

Thanks for reading me.  :)

I am livid!!!

I opened Firefox after work and, instead of having a nice evening, I'm having to reconstruct Firefox. Every time Firefox updates I have to go through this crap because it messes up my browser and I have to take my time getting it back to the way it should be. Missing pinned tabs. Missing links. Missing add ons. Missing search field. Missing download icon. Etc.

It is freaking ridiculous!!!

I have the add on One Tab with a ton of links. Every single link is gone. I need about 7 of those links right now and don't remember their origins to find them again. I saved them for a reason.

I followed the instructions that One Tab gives for getting links back but it doesn't work.

Everything was just fine until Firefox did this...again. My links were where they were supposed to be. This isn't the first time a Firefox update has lost links for me. I won't do it again. I'll go to Chrome because I can't take this anymore.

Can anyone tell me how to get my One Tab links back? Please tell me this is doable or I am going to just start crying.

Mozilla allows me to add an exception, and the window that comes up has an option to make the exception permanent, but it wont allow me to check the box to make it permanent. it would make things easier if i could make the exception permanent. how do i make this certificate a permanent exception? thank you for your time in this matter, and have a great day!

A few days ago, I was testing a dark theme related add-on, but since uninstalling it, have had this issue where my theme seems to be stuck as the Dark theme that naturally comes with Firefox. When attempting to change my theme in the customize window, mousing over the Default theme does show the proper colors for it, but selecting it still shows the Dark theme colors. I tried examining my Add-ons manager, where it shows that I am still using the Default theme, despite the colors clearly belonging to the Dark theme. I can freely change to the Light theme without issue, but for some reason, the Default one refuses to load properly. I have since tried uninstalling all my Add-ons, deleting my profiles, and uninstalling Firefox before restarting my computer, but to no avail. The Add-on I was examining initially was the Dark Night Mode add-on. Examining the page info, it does say it is not perfect, and their home page says that there are complex issues with getting it to work with Firefox, but I was unable to find more information on this offhand, nor any descriptions of scenarios like mine. I believe the initial settings for my Default theme came from some setting based off my color scheme I have set for my computer themes in general, based off my background, but I was unable to find more information on this at the time. The screenshots I am including are of my Add-on manager showing that I am using the default theme, the customize menu showing the Default theme when highlighted in the drop down menu to change it, and the result that displays when the Default theme is selected. Any ideas on why this issue is occurring, and how to fix it, would be appreciated.

Google Maps is now blurry, since the last update it seems. I cant be sure its the update but I think this is the first time I used Google Maps since the last update, which I have set at automatic. It's readable, generally, but clearly something is wrong.

A search doesn't seem to find recent problems like this, most info I find on this problem is old, even dating back to 2013.

The text in the info panes, etc is fine, just the map is blurry or fuzzy, especially on secondary roads.

Google earth satellite images look fine, except the route numbers on the roads are blurry like on maps
