Hi there, Trouble is never far away from windows 10, as I had (yet again) to reset my whole notebook and Firefox and cannot recover previous bookmarks, nor the side bar. I am absolutely throttled on this as all seems unresponsive. I have found a copy of old firefox but it won´t swallow it. How can I get out of this situation which catches me out everytime. keep it simple

The timezone on my Gmail and a few other sites automatically changes to Africa/Abidjan time on Firefox. This is not an issue with my device as I've checked the timezone on system preferences and it is correctly set to my local time. Additionally, the timezone appears to be correct on other browsers. I checked Firefox on another device and found the same problem.

What is with Firefox lately. Endless problems with screen sizing, light dark mode. But what is really pi**ing me off is the inability to connect to certain web pages. No I don't have a any spyware or viruses (I have scanned with 3 different programs) and I have no problems with connecting to the pages with Chrome or Edge. I'm getting the error messages

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

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.ebay.ca. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details. Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to 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.Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

And I get the same warning with Amazon, eBay, my email client Shaw Mail, Google Search, and several other pages that require a login. Is there anything I can do to fix this as I'm really starting to rethink my preferred web page browser?

I returned from holiday yesterday and could not access any of the favourite sites on my homepage. Only the outline of each tile is present on screen, but the rest of the tiles are empty and nothing happens when you click them. I have checked the settings and can change the number of rows of blank tiles shown, but not add any content. What could have happened? I was not there to make any changes to my system.

When refreshing and clearing cache using CTRL+Shift+R, browser should reload all assets. However when refreshing site with @import(ed) style sheet, it does not update.

The workaround is to open the style sheet in a new tab (e.g. https://my.web.com/assets/custom.css) and run refresh + clear cache there CTRL+Shift+R, which loads the updated style sheet.

Then, upon refreshing the original site (https://my.web.com), the CSS has been updated.


Is this a bug or expected behaviour?

When I'm on a web page, I'd like to be able to drag or copy the URL, with its associated name, from the address bar into Onenote. When I do that now I only get the URL in Onenote. I can get both the URL and name if first I drag the URL to the bookmark bar and then I drag the bookmark into Onenote.

Does anyone know a way to get it done in one step?

With version 105.0.3 (32-Bit) I have only trouble. Sorry to say, but most pages are not working. So I will probably now change to Chrome. Because I need a browser working and not 80% of addresses not. I don't understand the newer philosophie. I was enthusiastic Firefox user. But this year each version has more problems for me, using Windows 10. Each page I open I get "Increased safety risk". And that could not the world of security of today. I think Banks, Insurance and Healthcare don't have insecure pages without acitve signatures. But Firefox says this every time to all pages.

Have a good time, Gilbert

hello and good day to whom ever this massage gets to.

I just updated my windows at my work pc and all my programs were deleted and so I got signed out of all my accounts. I reinstalled firefox and tried to sign in but because its been a while I couldn't remember my password and had to reset it. but after all this and when I finally got into my account (with the same email address I was using until now) no matter how many times I click sync, nothing gets added to my bookmarks, history, passwords, etc.

then I checked with one on my phone to see whether that was working or not, and that was signed out as well and asks me to sign in again. I've been using this browser for years now and have many save information on this account I CAN'T LOSE ALL THAT. the primary account was on my laptop which is at home and currently I am terrified of turning that on and finding everything's gone again. please help me get my info back. I can't remember years of saved bookmarks and passwords.

I recently deleted some email from my Yahoo.mail account and asked for it to be restored by Yahoo yesterday. Today the time stamp on all of my incoming mail is wrong. I contacted Yahoo and they said that I needed to enable my location to Yahoo from within Firefox. Yahoo is not listed as requesting permission so I am not able to enable the location for them. I switched to Chrome and the time stamp in Yahoo was correct. I exited Firefox and tried reloading yahoo.mail, but it did not fix the time stamp problem. They suggested I contact Firefox. How can I fix this?

I've installed Firefox 105.0.3 on a machine with a fresh installation of Windows. I've left the machine running overnight. The next morning, Firefox stops loading pages. When I check C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox, I can see that Firefox.exe has a file date of July, instead of October: all the files in this folder are now for version 102 instead of 105. This has happened several times in a row now. What could be causing this problem?

The process manager tells me which window/process is hogging memory. But I have multiple windows open on multiple workspaces. How do I switch to that window so that I can see what it is and decide what to do about it?

Until recently, clicking on a window listed in the process manager would bring that window to the current workspace (ubuntu/xfce). That changed recently. Now clicking/double-clicking does nothing and there only seems to be the option to kill the process.

I guess I can kill it and then look at recently closed windows to see what it was. But that is a bodgy.

Can I fix the process manager so that when I click on one of its listed windows, I get taken to that window on the workspace where it resides? (It always was inconvenient when previously, double-clicking on the window in the list, brought that window to the current workspace. You had then to work out where it had come from if you wanted to put it back).

Firefox's window/workspace management is otherwise excellent. It's the best in my opinion. When it starts-up, for example, it puts all the windows back on the workspaces where they were when it was last closed. Very nice.

I've been trying to get a video to play for over a day now, drm-controlled content is checked but firefox won't install the widevine plugin, it just keeps saying that it will install shortly. I even deleted the cache in hopes to fix the problem, but it did nothing. What can I do to fix this? Also, and I don't know if this is a related problem, some websites just don't show up. It will say they are loaded but all I get is a blank screen (dailymotion and instagram so far).
