Yesterday, whenever I looked at Instagram on my iPhone 8 (software is up-to-date/ current), a Mozilla icon would appear with a tiny iPhone icon that said, "notification from iPhone." When I clicked on it, it would either take me to the Instagram login page of a particular Instagram account I follow, or else take me to my own Instagram profile page. I did not sign into Instagram in the open tab upon receiving these notification. I'm including some screenshots so you can see how it appeared on my screen. The other Instagram accounts besides my own that would appear in my Firefox browser tab were both people in the UK, for what it's worth, contacts of mine on Whatsapp also.

I just found it kind of creepy and thought I should report it to Mozilla.

Thanks, JJ

Hi all,

On 19 Sept 2022, upon booting my Macbook Pro, Acronis popped up a message to advise that Firefox was infected with ransomware. It listed the files and asked if I wanted to delete or quarantine the files. I elected to quarantine them so that I could investigate the claim/issue. Acronis reported that the files were now quarantined. From that point on, I could not launch Firefox. I deleted the app, and downloaded the latest FF from Mozilla and installed it. When I attempt to launch it, a popup states that I do not have the required permission to launch the app. (see image) I have checked Acronis and have taken a screen shot of the problem files (see image). In an effort to clear the Macbook Pro of any residual issues, I ran a full scan with CleanMyMac X MAS, and cleared all caches and redundant files. This ran and reported the job done and zero malware found. Kaspersky Total also reports no malware found. I downloaded the current Mac release of FF again and installed it, but still cannot launch it because I don’t have the relevant permissions. The app properties have been checked and as Admin, I have all relevant permissions. However I still cannot launch FF browser. Any advice/recommendations would be welcome, as Firefox is my main browser, after Safari.

Hello Team,

On our profile page, we allow users to change their profile picture and to upload that picture we are using ASP.Net FileUpload control.

This functionality works fine when use website from computers, however when we try to do same from any mobile device (Android/IOS), it does not work. Basically, on server side when we are trying to get file and upload in DB, we are getting FileUploadControl.HasFile = False.

I was getting an unspecified bug with Mozilla VPN that wouldn't let me launch it, update it, or sign out of it. I decided to uninstall and reinstall it. Uninstalling the VPN required me to close out of Firefox. I did so. When I relaunched it after the uninstall so I could go download the new VPN files, Firefox was still displaying the tab titles but nothing else, not even the urls of the pages. The entire browser was completely blank except for the tabs. No other pages are accessible either. I tried restarting the computer. It didn't work. I tried uninstalling Firefox, restarting the computer, and reinstalling Firefox. It didn't work. I tried a clean reinstall where I deleted every scrap of leftover data I could find. It didn't work. I got a VCRUNTIME140_1.DLL error during an install attempt, which I attempted to fix by updating Visual Studio as outlined here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1352013 and that didn't fix it either.

Since the lastest "update", (version 105.0.1) I can no longer access my messages inboxes on Fiverr.com. I get a drop-down message telling me that the website is slowing the browser and advising me to stop the page. Are you kidding me?! I'm TRYING to get some WORK done here! If I can't do it with Firefox, then I'll just have to quit using Firefox (again!) until you fix what you broke. You are interfering with my LIVELIHOOD here and I'm not having it!

for some reason bitdefender keeps producing this with dns over https enabled on firefox 105.0.1. If I browse that url on a machine without bitdefender is throws an error too about the cert.

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an untrusted certificate to mozilla.cloudflare-dns.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since untrusted certificates are issued by unrecognized Certificate Authorities.

I can add an exception but the cert on this size seems to be invalid. Any ideas?

I am getting a 404 Not Found message on only one page of a gigantic web site (www.bowl.com). I go to this page 10 or 15 times a week--for almost 20 years--and have never had a problem. Bowl.com's IT department has no idea why. I have cleared my cache and history (many times over the last week or so), and nothing seems to work.

I can access this page with Edge, and with my smartphone and on other computers in my network (Firefox), but I have to access this page with my THIS computer.

Since September 23, 2022, I can't send mail in Gmail, add attachments to email, print email. I get constant error messages: "oops, the system has encountered a problem...error #2001 (or #2003 and occasionally other numbers.) "The conversation you requested is not available." "Check your connections."

Meantime, all other internet functions work fine: other sites open immediately and commands are followed instantly. This problem seems specific to Gmail and Google, which is also now periodically unresponsive. (But YouTube works fine.)

I have bypassed Firefox cache. I have cleared cache. I have downloaded and reinstalled Firefox. I have done a 'netsh winsock reset'.

I have downloaded Chrome, which I dislike -- and found that I have most of the same Gmail problems there.

Nothing has resolved this issue, which came out of the blue. I'm at my wits' end!

My OS is Windows 10 and I have a wired Ethernet connection to Verizon FIOS.

Help, please!

Hello!

I would like to know which about:config preferences I have to modify to increase the speed of loading pages in Firefox?

I know that when I disable telemetry data, Firefox is saving a lot of time sending this telemetry data, which increases the speed.

In addition, I know that the loading speed will be increased when I modify some HTTP preferences, but which one.

Please give me a full list about all I can modify to increase the speed.
