I recently got seriously worried when I became aware about the new AI firewalls these days, which monitors or inspect SSL encrypted packets, before the packets reach to the main website. These new AI firewall systems are installed in some countries by their governments to suppress free speech, or just spy on its people. These firewalls, as you may already know, uses DPI-SSL system, which decrypts packets traveling from user to the main website. To decrypt the HTTPS packets, these firewalls uses its own self signed CA certificates. So I am asking the firefox developers, that why you guys allow this privacy issue? Does the packets sent from a firefoxe browser to other websites are also decrypted, by these firewalls? If yes, then why you guys allow this? Firefox must ONLY allow a specific CA certificate made for firefox browser only. Firefox browser must never let other third party softwares, or any software, to decrypt its encrypted packets. This is a serious privacy issue. With these firewalls, they can see what users write in chats, or posts, they can see witch content we are watching on a website, they can see who we follow on social media platforms, they can see which content or posts we like and etc. Even passwords are not safe anymore, which e use for any website of platform. When passwords are not safe, so does our accounts of various websites. This is a serious privacy breach.

These firewalls is a weapon for those countries which want to suppress free speech or suppress opposition sides in a government or spy on its own people.

Please let me know if I am mistaken or my concerns are genuine.

Hello, Today I was writing a draft post on Substack and the screen refreshed every few seconds. Possibly when Substack was saving changes. Each time it did this, the screen would go blank for an instant and refresh, and then I would have to click to place my cursor where it had been.

This is new as of this week. I was not writing on Substack using Firefox last week.

Firefox version 128.0, on Windows 10 Home v 22H2

thanks Chris.

I'm having issues with videos loading on ANY webiste, YouTube ect.... This started happening very recently out of the blue. Videos work fine on Edge. Additionally, I cannot run Firefox in troubleshooting mode? It crashes. I tried "refreshing" and reinstalling Firefox to no avail. I am using AdAware AV and AVG anti viruses if it matters, I have tired disabling both and loading FIrefox, no changes.

Firefox must've updated because this worked fine yesterday(7/11/24) but now I get this error when I try to access Google's main page.


Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it? google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site. The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. If you are on a corporate network or using antivirus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Every time Firefox updates it keeps re-enabling settings on its own.

Specifically 2 settings on the general tab keep enabling themselves in the "browsing" section, "Recommend extensions as you browse" and "Recommend features as you browse"

I have disabled these settings dozens of times now, and every time Firefox updates it keeps re-enabling these 2 settings on its own.

Just now I updated to v128.0 and these 2 settings turned themselves on again.

Why is Firefox not respecting my settings? Why is Firefox allowed to modify my settings without my permission?

I have deleted and reinstalled Firefox already. I don't use profiles and am not signed into the browser, so no settings are getting carried over that way.

Microphone is recognized and works in other sites, but not for a specific site despite being recognized and permitted

I have been using Firefox to join our web conferencing service (Callbridge) for years exactly the same way, but suddenly audio fails to work presumably since a recent Firefox update. (I'm currently running 127.0.2 (64bit) ) The mic in my headset works great in Firefox on other sites including onlinemictest.com. The mic is recognized by Firefox and permission is provided for the site. When I speak, there is an indication that my voice is heard by Firefox, but it is as if the mic is muted...no sound through Firefox even though the mic is not muted. Again, in another tab on a different site, the mic will work.

If I use Microsoft Edge browser with the same setup for Callbridge, everything works fine.

In Firefox it does indicate I have provided mic permission to the site, and the mic is clearly seen and working, but no sound from FF in the web conferences.

I have tried saving mic permission for the site, as well as removing it from Tools...Settings...Privacy & Security...Permissions...Microphone and permitting Mic use each time the site is launched. Page Info settings are all correct with permission to use the mic and speakers and I have tried enabling autoplay for the site.

I believe any Windows or hardware causes can be eliminated since the same setup works in Edge browser. It seems to be just a Firefox issue that has appeared recently when using the Callbridge site.

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Settings > Home > New Windows and Tabs > Homepage and new windows

This setting got reset on me last night. Using 127.0.2.

So, I set it to custom, add in a URL, close the settings, re-open the settings and see it is set.

I close my non-pinned tabs and then close the browser.

Upon opening the browser, I am greeted with an empty tab and the Setting has reverted to "Blank Page".

Hello, Since yesterday, the Firefox web browser crashes systematically. This has happened well over a dozen times. I've tried multiple step-by-step solutions: deactivating extensions, troubleshooting mode, repairing firefox, uninstalling and installing Firefox, trying several versions of Firefox (Quantum, ESR, Nightly), downgrading to an earlier version, uninstalling and completely cleaning Mozilla folders on AppData, deactivating graphics/hardware acceleration...

At one point, Firefox was crashing after ten seconds of watching a video on Youtube or another platform. After reinstallation, video playback no longer causes the browser to crash, but closing a tab does.

I am currently using Mozilla ESR 115.12.0. After reinstalling, I lost all the reports I sent. Nevertheless, I was able to reproduce the crash to give you the ID: [https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/repor.../a2d0f5de-d03f-450b-88f8-a8fdc0240705] Another crash report : [https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/repor.../71c602f6-c682-4158-9880-24d6a0240705]

According to the crash table, the reason for the crash is as follows: EXCEPTION_STACK_BUFFER_OVERRUN / FAST_FAIL_GUARD_ICALL_CHECK_FAILURE This reason appears on all crashes.

Thank you.

When I click on Add-On Support it says Page Not Found. That's pretty basic. Screenshot attached. This is not a button/link for a specific add-on, it's for Firefox as a whole.

Additionally, when I use LastPass, the LastPass icon does not appear anywhere I can access it, which is a basic feature that works properly in Chrome. I use this add-on multiple times per day which makes it very difficult to use Firefox as my main browser because I can't do 2-clicks to get to my passwords, I have to go to lastpass.com and login to their website, even though the add-on is installed.

Hi to all,

On website at wordplay.com (like wordl but better) I use to be able to use my keyboard to type in my 5 letter words. Those letters would populate in the boxes on the screen. Now when I do that a little pink box comes up in the bottom left corner of my screen and my letters are shown there.

So, I have to manually select each letter on the simulated keyboard on the app with my cursor. I don't know what I did to change this. I have refreshed Foxfire but that didn't help. Image attached but system wont let me attach the pink box.

Thank you so much if you can help me with this!

For some months now I have been finding that, when I try to log on to the BBC website or the Youtube website using my default browser Firefox I get a timed out message. However, both websites usually open when I try for the second time. This never happened before. For both sites I log on from Windows 10 desktop icons. This defect is now annoying me so much I am inclined to switch to Chrome or Microsoft Edge as default browsers where the problems do not occur. I have tried a number of suggested solutions shown on line but nothing has worked to date. Before I switch default browser I will try further suggested solutions if anyone has any.
