Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to anzacavenuewreckers.com.au. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

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.

Corel,

Several weeks ago I had already deleted all of the search engines that now appear in that mysterious drop down window and I checked in Options/Search and the only search engine that appears in there now is the only one I want used.

What I want to do is disable the drop down box or at least remove all the search engines that suddenly appear in a drop down box whenever you start to type something in the search box. I don't know why this particular function was even added it is very distracting and annoying.

Thanks for trying to help

John

I have checked this problem in the forum and the answers are all 3 years old and the about:config no longer contains the items they say to fix as described.

When I click in the search box to start to type a search, a drop down menu appears showing several other search engines. All of which I removed as alternates in the "One Click" search engine Options.

I do not want Firefox offering anyone an option to use another Search engine.

Can this drop down menu be disabled ?

The forum solution fixes, for this situation, no longer apply to the current version of Firefox

Thanks

John

Why doesn't the dialog for Autoplay fully render in Preferences?

In Firefox 78.0.2, the dialog for Autoplay looks ghostly. All other dialogs (e.g., Location, Camera, Microphone, Virtual Reality, etc) are raised and display as expected. It seems that the dialog for Autoplay does not raise to the front. It is rendering behind other elements.

It's faux modal window...a "fauxdal".

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open the "Privacy & Security" section of the Preferences (about:preferences#privacy)
  2. Click on "Settings..." button for Autoplay

Screencaps uploaded; one showing normal, expected modal display (for Location Permissions), the other showing the "fauxdal" condition. In the latter, the screencap was marked up to draw attention to the ghostly window corners and title. Notice the I-beam cursor in both images, as it was positioned over the Search field.

With the new Firefox update Roblox has stopped launching correctly. When I click on a game I want to play in the Roblox website, and pop-up shows up asking where I want to launch the game link. I go into my application, select Roblox, then click open link in this application. The problem is that instead of launching the game in Roblox, it just opens the Roblox website in a new tab. This problem is specific to Firefox, Chrome and Safari work just fine.

I am a facebook marketplace seller and I use my selling page every single day. After the update on July 3, my selling page is now showing in mobile format instead of PC. I just realized that my home page on facebook has been in mobile view for some time now. I am in the classic view on facebook I have not updated the page to the new style. The mobile view on facebook selling page is absolutely terrible and not user friendly. I have cleared my firefox cache, I have cleared all logins and autofill items. At one time when I right clicked the page and the view page info came up, it said android. now it does not anymore. I have tried everything I could think of to change the page back to PC view. I am not on the m.facebook.com page, either. It seems that all the other pages are normal, this just pertains to facebook.

Pictures are not rendering when I click on news links in Yahoo. I'm on a MacBook Pro, so I opened Safari browser to see if I had the same problem - I do not. Safari renders pictures... I also tried the fix I read about to go into blank:config, and double click on Domain.next_gen to make it false.... didn't work... what else can I try?

Thanks for any suggestions...

Hi

I have Firefox browser running on macOS Catalina, and I noticed that I do not get any desktop notifications (e.g. new Telegram messages) when I watch youtube or netflix on fullscreen. Is there a setting or extension I need in order to enable this?

I have tried this on all other browsers, and only Firefox has this issue.

I searched the forums, but was not able to find anyone who has encountered the same issue as me.

Thanks

Error message: E:\Users\Sarah\AppData\Local\Temp\xxxxx.xxx.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator.

I do want to mention upfront that this issue is also affecting Chrome and IE. It's not solely a Firefox issue, but I'm hoping someone here can help me anyways.

  • This happens for any filetype, from any source.
  • It started happening about a month ago.
  • Prior to that, I installed a new motherboard, RAM and processor. I'm fairly certain there was a period between these events in which it worked fine, but I am mentioning it just in case it's relevant.
  • If it's a small file and I try repeatedly, it sometimes will eventually download.
  • Even if a large file successfully starts downloading, it will eventually fail. It usually fails immediately though.
  • I sometimes have success downloading the same file in Chrome, but it also often fails. IE as well.

I have tried the following:

  • Used Refresh Firefox
  • Cleared download history
  • Changed download location
  • Reset browser.download values
  • Disabled firewalls and antivirus/spyware
  • Reinstalled Firefox using Run as Admin (first uninstalled previous version and deleted all program files that I could find, including profiles)
  • Cleared cookies and cache
  • Ran in safe mode
  • Verified Temp folder filepath was valid
  • Verified the PART file was created in that path -- it exists until I hit OK on the error message, then it disappears
  • Ran Firefox as admin

I think these are outdated methods I only found on non-official sources, but will mention them just in case:

  • I found some sources that said to delete Compreg.dat; I could not find this file in the place listed, nor could I find it with a search of the entire drive
  • Verified places.sqlite was not set to read-only
  • Removed read-only from entire profile folder and subfolders

In Options > Security: 'Block dangerous & deceptive content': true, 'Block dangerous downloads': false

Internet speed test: 58.96 Mbps download; 148.04 Mbps upload. No connection loss.

This problem is absolutely maddening. I'll be so grateful if anyone can help me out!! :( Thank you in advance, I know this was a long read!

I have been watching football on one or two Sky Sports websites through Virgin Media which redirects me to the Sky Sports log on which I do as a Virgin Media Customer. This has been running smoothly for well over a year. Suddenly it has stopped with the error message "Secure Connection Failed". I have tried adding Sky Sports to the allowed web-sites on my security (Kaspersky and Malwarebytes) and clearing the caches as instructed by Mozilla but to no avail. What do I need to do to enable me to continue watching Sky Sports on my laptop. I'm afraid Virgin Media support told me to go back to the shop from which I bought the laptop, now 3-4 years ago.
