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

This only occurred AFTER Firefox did an update. When will this be fixed? I detest Chrome, however, it is becoming my only option when I cannot work because Firefox does updates that hinder me.

In the "Options->General Tab->Files and Applications" I have ticked the "Always ask you where to save files" option. When saving a file, (photos, videos ...), I do get the option of choosing where I would like to save it, but the file always saves to the folder that is defined in the "save files to" option. I am running Fire Fox 61.0 (64 bit) on a Windows 10 home (64 bit) platform. When I run Fire Fox in "Safe mode", The file(s) save to the folder that I point them to. I only have 8 add-ons, so I disabled all of them while Fire Fox is not running in "safe mode", but the problem continues to occur. I also tried refreshing Fire Fox, but the problem continues. This problem showed up after powering my desktop down at night, and then powering it back the next day. There were no Windows updates. I also ran virus scans with Malwarebytes, and Norton. Both showed that there are no infections.

Hello.

I installed BitDefender, which caused trusted websites such as facebook and twitter to give me the "insecure connection" error. I also can not view embedded images on certain websites. I turned off SSL security for BitDefender, but this did not fix the problem. After uninstalling BitDefender the issues still persist. I created a second test profile for Firefox and low and behold there are no issues with the second profile nor does chrome have these problems. Any ideas on how to fix this?

This yellow banner is suddenly appearing on my firefox when I am using an online website builder programme and it is stopping it from working and hence stopping me from working. I didn't ask for this error message business, and truly wish I had not updated to this latest version as prior to that update this was not happening. I do seem to remember from some years ago this was a problem too. I have read all the links and articles and I cannot find a way to disable this from happening and it is very frustrating. Please look into this as it is causing me to have to consider using safari again as I certainly won't use chrome as godgle want to know what colour knickers I'm wearing and my inside leg measurement yet all my data goes into someone else's super admin account but godgles won't listen. Very frustrated and I hope that Firefox are not considering going the same way with data collection, advertising and accounts. You stood out as being there for your users and not for advertisers or data gathering or anything so intrusive. I am very sad to think that you are going the same way as them :( please don't we already have google and apple who think they are gods we really need someone who does not want to gather our data or take our info or spy on us.

There apparently is a 25MB or so downloading limitation for email attachments in all browsers. Because I have tried at least 3 or 4 different browsers and can't seem to download a couple of AOL email attachments that are slightly over 30MB each. What I don't understand is Firefox was used to send the attachments via email to my AOL email address and didn't have a problem with the 30MB size, but yet Firefox won't let me download them because they are too large. There must be some way to change the limitation within Firefox (and possibly the other browsers), yet I can't find it. I really need to download the emailed .zip files to my PC, so any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Some websites seem to be accessing my location, at least, at the city level. For example, if I visit the website "https://www.theguardian.com/uk", even if I am at another country, I will see the weather report for the city I am at that moment. That website has never asked permission for my location. And indeed, it does not appear in the list of such websites in the settings. Firstly, how do I prevent this from happening? Secondly, and more importantly, this makes me wonder which websites may be accessing my location and to what precision.

Thanks in advance for any comments.

It's really annoying when Firefox decides to update. I get shut down with no warning whatsoever in the middle of my session. If I can choose permission options for updates, why can't I choose time options? As I am sure you are aware, Windows allows update time options and a warning, which includes several time periods, before shutting down, so why can't you?

I have Javascript enabled, I have cleared my cache, and I have re-installed Firefox. Some buttons will not allow me to click on them at all. When I go to my Wordpress dashboard I just get the Wordpress symbol in the background. When I go to LinkedIn I get the LinkedIn icon that looks like it's loading, but it never loads. Same with Slack, the wheel just spins and spins.
