I am receiving this error on a few sites, but only one that I can list at the moment: https://www.flexjobs.com

Secure Connection Failed The connection to www.flexjobs.com was interrupted 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.

Firefox cannot access this site from multiple locations (both my home and my work). I did an SSL checkup of the site and they get a "Grade A" and looks like it supports all of the correct "current" signatures: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=www.flexjobs.com

The website in question is www.payk.ca When I right-click on an element and select "Inspect Element (Q)" I can see the html , but not the CSS rules being applied to a selected element, despite the fact that the CSS is being applied to the site appropriately. Chrome's inspector works, Microsoft Edge's inspector works, Firefox's doesn't.

Hi,

I am unable to print specific pages within firefox 44 and previously 41. These are mostly webpages from within my school system. Any time I try to print or check the print preview, all the content on the page is blank.

I went through all the trouble shooting on Mozilla support including 'Fixing printer issues in Firefox' and even went as far as doing a clean installation of Firefox (removing all files and user files tied to firefox). None of these helped the issue. I thought that it could be an add-on or my antivirus software. I went ahead and disabled those too and it fixed nothing.

I have isolated this issue to firefox as it does not happen in the latest versions of Safari, Chrome, or IE.

Any thoughts on what it may be?

I'm running Fx 44.0.2 on Mac 10.11.3. I believe the problem started before I upgraded though, but can't be sure. I can't print or print to pdf at all from Fx but printing in other apps works fine. I tried doing a refresh as recommended by troubleshooting page & it didn't solve the problem. Since that time I've only installed 2 extensions (1Password & Tab Tree). There was also a recommendation to reset a setting containing print_printer in about:config. It doesn't exist. That may be the problem, but it doesn't say what the whole name of the key is so I don't know how to create it. There's also a recommendation for removing all print items from the prefs_js file, but it seems to me that the refresh created a whole new profile which would make this moot. Am I wrong? Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

We have high data usage, in fact in the past 5 days we've used 6 GB of data... I don't understand where this is being used. We don't upload/download much, rarely watch videos, etc. I'm just trying to figure out where this data is being used. On my laptop it states firefox has used 6.3 GB of data in the past 30 days. Is that high? Thanks!

I'm in Windows 10. Was using it well (I'm not computer literate) and after several months of doing so found that the minimize and expand toggles had disappeared. My Firefox version is 44. I've stepped through the following:

Trouble shoot and diagnose Firefox problems - have reinstalled, refreshed 
 Went to Support Forum and deleted the xulstore.json file (Have trouble figuring out how to close and restart firefox)

None of this works. I love Firefox and have been using it for over 5 years maybe longer. But I'm really frustrated as I don't have tech skills.

Any help even with the basics like exit firefox, close firefox and restart firefox would help. A simple close or exit firefox switch would simplify all this for people like me. All I want is my Firefox browser with its basic functions back. Paul

Sometimes when I open Inspect (alt+command+i) the frame is empty and the Inspect doesn't load. I'm using a Firefox 44.0.2 for MacOSX El Capitan and this a recurrent problem I had in other Macs. Does connecting from China could be one of the reasons? Here many servers are blocked so maybe a library doesn't load?

Please check the screenshot, any idea?

Hello,

my Adobe Flash Player plugin stopped working recently. Any flash content just stays black and I get the loading symbol next to my cursor when I hover over the content area. Both Firefox and the plugin, as well as my GPU drivers, are up to date. I already tried reinstalling Firefox and Adobe Flash, both without success. A fresh profile folder didn't do the trick either.

Any help is appreciated.

Recently getting:

The owner of www.facebook.com 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 only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

Message on both facebook & Google. No recent software changes. If I open the browser immediately after booting i can browse both sites no problem then all of a sudden get the message.

Using Bulldog antivrus etc and issue persist when firewall etc are disabled.

Its driving me nuts and I really dont want to change Browser!.
