I CAN'T ACCESS MY GMAIL OR ANY OTHER SEARCH ENGINE, CAN SOMEONE HELP WITH THIS

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.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 anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Hi

I wonder whether you could help me

The OS is Windows 10

By the way, I’ve scanned over and over again, with different software, the computer for any malware, virus, etc, and it’s all clean.

I’ve used Firefox and bookmarks for years.

Lately, when I try to place (sometimes even when I’ve already placed it) the cursor on a bookmark (any bookmark) all the bookmarks (including the selected, “highlighted”, bookmark) roll away, upwards or downwards.

As for the selected bookmark, it disappears from view, even though, when I find it, I can see that the bookmark itself remains selected.

Weird.

What am I doing wrong??

In advance, thanks for your kind help

For example PHPMyadmin is rendered wrong - see pictures below: 1. FF (left) rendering in comparison with edge 2. and 3. PHPMyadmin after pressing CSS in the filter-field of the developpers tools. Then the rendering gets partly better but not yet good.

I tried the suggested changes in settings, refreshed Firefox and did even a complete new install. No changes. What can I try/do next? Problem exists since one or two days without changing anything at the server or client.

probably since update to 105, I can no longer play audio from my local server. The browser sends one range request for bytes 0- which is answered with partial data. The browser will play just the amount of data sent and the audio position jumps to the end. No further requests are sent to the server Audio format is flac, protocol is http, server closes connection after each request I tried this on win10 and linux

I think the latest update, Firefox 105.01, screwed up my bookmarks. The Star on the address bar is blue for any site. Clicking on it does nothing. Will not edit, three bar menu will not edit, Control D will not edit.

There is now a bar underneath the address bar for a toolbar which was not there previously. I have never used or needed the bookmarks toolbar.

The Release notes for 105.01 (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/105.0.1/releasenotes/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-desktop&utm_campaign=about-dialog) appears as a bookmark in an unrelated folder. It will not delete.

I did look at the release notes right after the update. I closed that tab and did not bookmark it.

Cannot add new bookmarks.

I just discovered on the three bar menu under the Bookmarks menu that 105 shows as the last recent bookmark. Prior recent bookmarks will open up the "edit this bookmark." Only the save button is highlighted & clicking on that does nothing & the menu disappears.

Please fix. Thank you

Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?

I'm a web developer and I've been using the web developer Responsive Design Mode for some testing.

Unfortunately the default resolution is 320x480 and while I do occasionally test this resolution (it's our bare minimal mobile resolution) it's obnoxious to have to always choose the drop down menu to change the resolution every-single-time!

I've already searched through about:config settings for queries such as 320 and 480 separately.

So: how do I change the Responsive Design Mode default resolution?

Hello,

I use Firefox since 14 years and I have a lot of bookmarks and folders, so can you do something to filter the folders in the "Manage bookmarks/Library"? My idea is to apply the word that I enter in the "Search Bookmarks" to all folders, can you add this option?

Example if I have a folder with the name "Hello The World", I would like this folder appear in my research if I enter the word "Hello" in the "Search Bookmarks" (Of course I also want to see the bookmark as currently, but I also want to see the corresponding folder(s)).

Hi.

After some time of trial and error I finally came to the conclusion that having the 'youtube.com' tab and 'antenaplay.ro' (tv broadcast app) tabs opened prevents my computer from auto-entering sleep mode. Even if the streams on the 2 tabs are paused.

I don't have this issue on Chrome, I can leave the tabs opened there and my PC can enter sleep mode no problem. The thing is I want to keep using Mozilla because I got used to it and because it's not based on Chromium.

If you need more information just say so. Thanks for the help in advance! Peter.

For the past week my Firefox (running on Windows 10) has stopped working correctly. Tabs keep crashing and it won't open many websites. They will load if I close then re-open Firefox but that's getting a bit annoying. Everything was fine before, Firefox worked smoothly and without any problems. I don't know what's happened. I've tried opening the same sites on Edge, and can do that with no problems.

I used this tablet for many years and got lots of bookmarks on my browser, but recently its antenna stopped working. I did some research and found out you can export the bookmarks from firefox even if you cant connect to the internet to use the sync functionality. I rooted the phone, copied the browser.db file from firefox and exported the bookmarks table with SQLite Browser. I read on some verry old (6-8 Years ago) threads on this forum that they imported the bookmarks.csv they got from the db in excel, then modified it in some sense and then exported it to a html file to import that in firefox. I did everything to where i have the whole table in excel, only need to know what i need to modify in it.

Today is October 2, 2022. Firefox became noticeably slower about 4 to 6 weeks ago. There were problems with YAHOO! Mail, for example. It was particularly noticeable when I would be watching one YouTube video and then would click on the image/icon of a different video, trying to change to & open the new video. E.g., NBC or CBS videos, like "Jimmy Kimmel" shows, etc. A couple of days ago, I opened Windows 10(TM) Task Manager, and used "End Task" to shut off Dropbox instances. I then uninstalled Dropbox. I did that to prevent Dropbox from running in the background [and I don't need it, anyway]. That seemed to help. I have also switched to Firefox "Troubleshoot Mode" -- that seemed to help, somewhat, but not necessarily in every case.

 Yesterday, there were problems opening MyADP (to view salary pay stubs) with Firefox [in regular mode].  The application just seemed to be "stuck" while trying to open the view to payment listing.  So, this morning, I ran MS-Edge(TM), and MyADP opened properly and operated with no problems.
   Is it possible that some MS-Windows 10(R) update is causing problems with Firefox?

Moments ago, I opened YAHOO! mail in a separate, new tab, and logged-in quickly, without a problem. I'm happy about that.

  I just opened another tab, easily started the video.  However, clicking on a different video's icon -- the result is that the YouTube red line only moves left to right about 2/3 of the way across the screen, and the newly-selected video does not load.  Clicking repeatedly on the different video's icon seems to "clog" YouTube to the point that the message, "Connect to the internet.  You are offline.  Retry", appears.

So, I'm a bit puzzled. What do you suggest, please?

  Thank You in Advance, 

Dave

Hello,

I'm currently trying to disable the media overlay when playing audio, videos and so on. Going to about:config and setting media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled to false does indeed fix the problem, except I now can't use the buttons on my keyboard to pause and unpause.

Recap: setting media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled removes the overlay but also disables keyboard buttons to pause and unpause.

Is there a solution for this?
