This has started to day, I'm running it on Windows 11 and if I minimize a windows sometimes I am unable to reopen from the taskbar, I would see the browser window flash for 1 second and then a window error bell sound will play, but there is no error message. The only way I can get back that window is to right click the icon in the taskbar and click Restore on the rightclick pane. I would have to do this everytime this happens.

I don't know what caused this, it was fine most of the day and just started late afternoon. Anyone have a clue to the root of this issue and what's your advice?

Firefox shrinks page when trying to print label (since uptdate to 102.3.0esr)

I'm using an online inventory system and regularly need to print barcode labels. This was all working fine until I updated to 102.3.0esr. Now, the data shrinks to a tiny part of the page when I go to print it. (See screenshots of what it looks like prior to going to the print dialogue and then when I actually go to print it). I've checked various settings suggested on previous posts that sound like the same problem but none of these work (Scaling, shrink, printer margins, clearing the cache etc.). If I choose a different printer and select A4 paper, the data looks to be the correct size (i.e. set for a 2x1 label), albeit on a much larger page.

I downloaded Chrome and I can get it to display and print ok from there. I just don't know what's happened in Firefox. Also, it's not just my system - one of my colleagues had a problem with a standard release. We changed him to the esr version (prior to the 102.3.0 update) and it worked ok then. Obviously something has happened in this update. Any help would be appreciated.

Large White Bar At The Bottom Of The Screen In Firefox (Windows 11, v106.0b4 Developer Edition, v105.0.1 Standard Edition)

Hello, I am currently having an annoying issue when browsing Firefox on particular websites. There's this large, irremovable white bar at the bottom of the screen that appears when I'm browsing particular websites (it only appears on those and those websites only), but it never appears on other websites and there doesn't seem to be a way to remove it. I've tried clearing cookies and cache, disabling certain extensions but nothing has seemed to work so far. I'm currently using the Firefox Nightly, but the same exact issue is present on the same exact websites (developer.mozilla.org, codewars.com, etc.) on my regular version of the browser. This is getting really annoying and I don't want to switch to a Chromium-based browser, so is there any way to fix this annoying issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

In the last week, I have noticed an error message on a site that I usually log onto, and am unable to do so which looks like this: Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.plus.net. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem. I have contacted the web site owners, and they have said it is my browser as the site is working correctly.

The second issue is that I am able to log onto my gumtree homepage, but unable to access my account due to the following: I have checked my Firefox browser and it is running the latest version 105.0.1 I have noted that on the bottom left of the page when trying to access my messages or manage my ads the following is happening but times out after 15 seconds: Unable to perform tls handshake to sa.gumtree

Gumtree have said this is a browser issue, so that is why I am contacting you for assistance.

I look forward to hearing from you, at your earliest convenience.

Best regards, Arvin Kumar

I'm working on an iMac, Monterey 12.6 and using Firefox 105.0.1. In Settings, I can only choose to have downloaded files be saved in the Downloads folder. If I were to check the box "Always ask you where to save files", it won't fully download or will be sent elsewhere on the Mac hard drive. I tried reading other articles that dealt with changing True/False settings in Firefox, but I really have no idea how to do that and if it made it worse. How can I fix this properly so that when I choose to download a file, I can also choose to save it in a specific folder? I'm also not sure if the Applications choices (how Firefox handles various files) is incomplete or not working.

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 have used Firefox and kept it updated for years. Today, when I tried to open it, I got this message:

Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox.

Seemed odd, but I created a new profile and synced my bookmarks etc. But when I restarted it, I got the same message. I can't troubleshoot because I can't get past this message.

I didn't add anything that I can recall or change any settings, so I don't understand what's going on.

My wife sent a link to an Amazon product. When I clicked on it the Amazon Smile site from my desk top it came up briefly then went black. Since then, when I bring Smile up again it has different fonts (Times New Roman versus Arial/Calibri), the home page and selecting options like Wish List shows a mish-mash of sentences and images.

I tried rebooting Firefox and running the troubleshooting option, same thing. The Amazon Smile site is normal on Chrome and Edge. It is also normal with Firefox on my iPad and iPhone.

Would prefer not to uninstall/re-install Firefox on my desk top if there is another option.

Hey friends,

I'm experiencing an issue with Firefox only (Edge and Chrome are fine) with a specific site/certificate and was hoping someone had some advice.

The site in question is github.ourcompany.com, which has a certificate issued with the following:

Subject Common Name: *.github.ourcompany.com

And the following Subject Alt Names: DNS: *.github.ourcompany.com DNS: *.github DNS: github.ourcompany.com DNS: github IP: 10.x.x.x

When I browse to https://github.ourcompany.com, I get a SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN message, even though github.ourcompany.com is a valid SAN. I'm wondering if this is to do with validation rules regarding wildcard SANs, or perhaps the order of the SANs. Has anyone seen this before?
