Unable to access Craigslist, Reddit, and similar sites due to SSL issues. Previously, I could click "Advance" and accept the risk to proceed, but this option is now missing. Clicking on "Advance" only displays a dropdown with an SSL error.

While I appreciate browsers prioritizing security, there should be an owner override. After all, I own my PC, and I should have the freedom to make choices, even if it means accepting potential security risks.

Did Firefox change this override option, or do we need to switch to another browser if we encounter this issue?

Hi,

After restarting my MacBook today, it seems like Firefox has been updated. When I signed in to my account, all of my passwords as well as my search history and personal customization have been deleted.

This is a very unfortunate situation. Please advise on how this can be restored.


Kind regards, Oskar

Is this really Mozilla or Google playing dirty? I ask because the site I was trying to access suddenly has stopped working on other browsers, so I thought I would try it on Firefox, and this is what happened. I do not have the security key it is asking for so I cannot even log into the site. The site support told me that they recommend Google Chrome. It seems too coincidental that it suddenly stops working on other browsers and Firefox won't even let me login. Nor has it EVER asked me for a physical security key to access any site before.

Hi there - I accepted Firefox's prompt to "refresh" the browser and had no idea it would take away my add-ons. How do I get these back? I don't even remember what they all were, but I know they made a huge difference and now I can't believe all the ads I'm seeing and then my "facebook container" (and other kinds of container tabs) is gone too! How do I fix this? Can I undo the "refresh"??

Hello,

While in my internet banking it is not possible to copy/paste the IBAN, the sum or just the name or anything. No matter if I used the context menu copy/paste function or the keyboard shortcuts. I am trying to copy from a Google Drive opened text file or a template saved in my online banking.

In Chrome there was no issue with copy/paste.

Outside of my banking, there are no issues with copy/paste.

I expect it is a security setting somewhere, do you know which one it is?

Thank You!

Every time I right click and select "Open Link in New Tab" Firefox is not opening this new tab next to the current tab. It instead moves this new tap to the end of all the tabs (of the current website). This is an annoying behavior, I have to go all the way to the end of the tabs to look at the name page that I just opened. How do I fix this behavior?

I think you need a place where users can easily report errors. I frequently find Firefox doesn't work with some sites, or stops working where it has worked before, especially where some login or click button is required. Have a look at this site, New Zealand government register for charities: https://register.charities.govt.nz/CharitiesRegister/ViewCharity?accountId=1ebd3717-79f0-e911-ba6c-00155d6b7730&searchId=6827e00b-e624-4fe4-ad80-8ccb4645ead2 I have to use a different browser now to access this site, which I frequently need for work.

Cheers

I have a very fast internet connection, 200 mbps and everything else on both my laptop and my mobile phone are working fine but Firefox is very slow. Pages load ok but videos will play for a short time and then freeze never to continue and downloads are painfully slow, 2 to 4 mbps. Edge and Chrome download normally and videos play with no issue. I need this fixed or Firefox is going bye bye!

I started with Netscape, lived through Mozilla and then been FF ever since. I love it. But increasingly, I am running into problems with using features in many websites.

For instance with Cigna Health, you can't reset your pw and open certain other links. Cigna Support has a simple solution which has always solved my problem: use Chrome or Edge.

B&H Photo Video mostly works but for instance if you are looking at the pictures associated with a product review and try to enlarge them, FF won't do it. Chrome and Edge do it.

I am finding more and more websites that have these glitches. It's almost as if some website designers are not paying any attention to compatibility of their product with FF.

Am I missing something in the config of FF or are these issues real and likely to get worse over time? I am very worried that if it continues that I will get a message like "Many features on this website are not compatible with FireFox."

I am not a programmer but if there is anything I can do to help, I am glad to do so.

Firefox changed the design on tabs and other features some time back. The whole user experience has been worse since the UX design was changed. For example, it's impossible to find out without going through tab after tab, which one is active and playing. I wish there was an option to reverse back to the old design.
