A pop-up from Mozilla said 'Mozilla Firefox Critical Error!' with a phone number to call (message said to call Microsoft support). I called the phone number, believed the representative, gave him remote access to my computer (over 1 hr.). Was told the were hacker files in my system and they installed new virus protection and disabled the virus protection I had on my system. Found out this is a ploy hackers use to steal info. Does Mozilla activate a pop-up warning as mentioned above? ... or have I been scammed?

Firefox doesn't randomly load webpages

Hi,

I use Firefox v590.0.2 (64 bits) with Windows 10.

I use Firefox at my work, only for browsing our intranet. I'm a web developer so I load many pages on our intranet. Since a few weeks, I noticed that the pages are not always loaded correctly: the page starts to be loaded, and then it stops and it's loading forever (with the "Waiting for XXX" message at the bottom left). If I refresh the page it will eventually load as expected.

I tried to install a new Firefox on *another* computer, and I use it to browse the same website. And the same behavior appears: it works very fast and well for some pages, and then randomly stops working for some random pages.

On my main computer I tried to create new profiles, delete everything, without success.

I also tried to deactivate the hardware acceleration on both Firefox, without success.

When I check the Network tab from the web developer bar, I can see that some CSS files (it's not always the same, and it can be 1 or several CSS files) are not loaded (see the attachment) and appears with a grey dot, just like if the browser was trying to load them but it cannot, blocking the page. (I've also noticed it could impact other resources, like, at least images)

Before v59 I've never seen this behavior.

Note :

 - our intranet is on Sharepoint, with NTLM auth
 - at home I use Firefox on my personal computer and it works normally (but I don't browser the work intranet)
 - at work, because it's on the intranet, the network doesn't go thru a proxy
 - I'm now using Chrome because of this issue with Firefox, and the problem doesn't occur in Chrome

Thanks for any help.

Hello

I am currently using Ubuntu 18.04 and Firefox Quantum 59.0.2 64-bit. On some websites, I am unable to select the password field either using tab or a mouse click to be able to enter a password. This leaves me unable to login. However, this doesnt seem to happen on all password fields.

For example on https://reddit.com I can enter username and password on the field on the right. However, if I click on Login hyperlink on 'Want to join? Log in or sign up in seconds.', I get a popup which I am unable to click the password field on.

I have also seen this problem on https://abnzb.com

I have tried to run in safe-mode but the problem persists.

My addons are Gnome shell integration, Enhanced Steam, HTTPS Everywhere, uBlock origin.

Also, to add to this. When I right click on the password text fields, I do not get a menu popup. I am not sure if this is related or not.

I don't use Firefox browser, but Mozilla is preventing me from accessing a https website because it thinks it is insecure. I use Comodo Ice Dragon browser. I do not have any type of security on my pc. I have turned of Ublock, https everywhere, comodo security & ghostery. Why has Mozilla taken control of my access to this website: https://elderscrollsonline.com/ ?

The web address is accompanied by a green padlock symbol & site securit is considered safe by the Comodo Ice Dragon browser.

This is the error I receive:

Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   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.

Report errors like this to help Mozilla identify and block malicious sites

How is this possible?

The 'educated guesses' below are incorrect. I use Comodo Ice Dragon 60.0.2.10 & Windows 7, not Firefox 59.0 or Windows 10.

The message from the EV Certificate is often so long that I cannot see the URL of the page anymore: not even the slightest bit, so that I cannot copy and paste the URL.

In order to be able to see more contents in the browser, I have positioned my monitor vertically, and put all the widgets in one bar: the address bar, the tags bar; as shown in the enclosed picture. This works fine until I open a page with an EV Certificate. Then the message from the certificate is so long. That there is no URL to be seen anymore. And I often need to copy and paste the URL.

Is there a way to configure the address bar so that the EV Certificate is only displayed as the padlock but with no text (untlil I click on the padlock, in case I want to see all the details)?

FF version 59.0.3 kaspersky internet security suite

of late, when a new version of firefox comes out they break something.

i am seriously thinking of chrome - heaven's forbid - but at least it works.

so any help to resolve this issue would be great before i enter the evil chrome empire :-(

since firefox updated to the above version i get the following error messages on some major websites, like bbc.co.uk, wikipedia, and others, some websites work, i have added some as exclusion but other websites don't give me the option.

the websites work in the Edge browsers ok.

some website sort of work, they just display strangely, mainly text and very little formatting at that.

i have set kaspersky to not scan encrypted connections in the network section, but that stop the mymoney protected browser from kaspersky from working!

i seem to spend more time getting firefox to work after an update, i'm at the point now where i just can't be bothered anymore.

i have cleared caches and other things i have seen as suggested fixes.


firefox states...

Your connection is not secure

The owner of en.wikipedia.org has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.


the advanced tab displays

en.wikipedia.org uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported.

So basically, Iv been trying to access steam & thesimsresource but weirdly an error message comes up It looks like this:

Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at www.thesimsresource.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Im really confused as this has never happened before. If you have an answer to my problem please explain in a simple way as all this is extremely complicated.

Each time I click on 'bladwijzers' (bookmarks) my firefox hangs. After a while it becomes responsive again and I can continue using it, but it happens every time. I have no clue what causes this.

I do have a lot of bookmarks though. They used to be in folders and everything, but those seem to be gone. I have 'refreshed' Firefox, but I'm reluctant to reinstall firefox, because I'm afraid I will lose all my tabs and windows and bookmarks. Without plugins the problem persisted.

I'm running the latest version of Firefox (59.0.2) on the latest version of macOS (10.13.4) on a iMac 13,1.

How do I delete Firefox and keep al my tabs and windows? I'm quite addicted to Firefox and keep a lot of stuff open and I would like to be able to just continue where I left off.

I hope all this is a bit clear. Thanks in advance for any suggestions, tips and tricks.

Details: Windows 8, Firefox 59.0.3 (64-bit) target from about:buildconfig = x86_64-pc-mingw32 One of the add-ons was preventing me from using the context-menu "Save Target As..." I have been using the same Add-Ons for some time without issue, but I must had made a change that cause the problem, because when I disabled all the Add-ons the functionality returned. In my haste I wanted to try the Refresh Firefox to get back to square-one, but now my concern is effecting the state of the other Firefox Quantum installations I have linked through Sync. Before I did the disabling of the Add-Ons, I disconnected from Sync (thinking ahead of this possibility). I have worked very hard customizing the setting and I am happy with the set-up; I do not want to lose all of that effort configuring Firefox to my liking, so how can I make sure that re-establishing Sync is not going to change the configuration on other machines. What is the proper order-of-operation for making sure that I can get back to where I want to be? I did copy the 'pref' files a few days ago, just in case. What copy operations can I perform on the other machine to backup EVERYTHING related to Firefox and my config to rollback, I necessary. Add-ons I use (all latest versions): CanvasBlocker Clear Flash Cookies Custom UserAgent String Decentraleyes Disconnect HTTPS Everywhere Link Cleaner NoScript Passphrase Generator Privacy Badger uBlock Origin uMatrix User-Agent Switcher
