Today I opened Firefox 36 and saw that there's and update. I updated it to version 37.0.1. After I restarted the browser, I realized that it works very slow and opens an Advertisement pop-up with this address: http://offers.bycontext.com/scjs/tb/ctxjs/index.php?kw2=www.softgozar.com&affid=1145&subaff_id=888888000000000000&intformat=roll&nextpage=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.softgozar.com%2FWebPage%2FSoftwareDescription.aspx%3FSoftwareId%3D21%26Title%3DMozilla-Firefox-3701-Farsi-Cyberfox-3701-x64-Waterfox-3604-x64&ch=6801&sbrand=name&folder=v6.5.1&typrd=ctx&cu=31661&country=WW&original_country= It's really annoying. I didn't install any untrusted add-ons and my Firefox always updates itself from Mozilla. Please help. I really need it. Thanks.

I have Firefox 35.0.1 and I've been trying to update it. I get the notification for the update, click on it, it prompts me to restart Firefox, so I click restart and after it restarts, it prompts me to update again and in About, it still says I'm at 35.0.1.

TL;DR: I'm getting recursive update notifications that never update. Restart, update, restart, update, restart, update...

Very similar issue to this, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1056423. Am able to get to http://www.independentagent.com and then when the 'sign in' link is clicked (which redirects to https://sso.iiaba.net/login.aspx?sid=xxx) this error shows:

Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset 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.

I ran the sso.iiaba.net domain through https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=sso.iiaba.net and it reports a few warnings but gives the site an overall rating of B.

      • Fixed. As noted we were supporting old ciphers. We trimmed and resorted the cipher list and now we get an A on the ssllabs.com scan. Firefox works now, no problems. I wish the original error message was more descriptive.

Helo!

First what caused the problem: Few days ago the C-partition of the HD-Drive with Win7-OS and firefox-installation crashed due to problems with the clusters (according to error-messages). I tried to fix the problem with chkdsk, win-repair and standard checks but did not work. Win7 starts until the circling balls appear or sometimes until the mouse-coursor on a black screen appears but stays there. The other partitions - containing data - work well as before. I recognised i can get access to the OS-partition by choosing command-prompt in the win7-repair-environment. All files and folders are still there.

I installed another HD of the same type (first as single drive) and also installed the same OS and the firefox-browser to search for advice. After that i put the old HD as slave into the PC. All partitions seems ok. but the first one with OS denys access. The diskmanagement under system-control shows no problems with any partition. All partitions are correctly identified and have a properly drive letter. Only access to the first partition wich contains the OS and firefox is always denied.

WHAT I TRIED (WANT TO DO): I started the system with the command-prompt without starting win7 (not the Win7-prompt in a window) and i copied the completely profile from the old firefox-installation on the old HD to C: on the new HD with creating all folders by hand and xcopy all files in all folders (E:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxx.default (xxx for the characters/name firefox createt)) to a subfolder on the new C:. Then i choosed this profile by using the ff-Profile-Manager. The name of the profile-folder (and sub-folders) were exactly taken over from the old installation with all files from the old installation on the old HD.

BUT WHEN I STARTED FF AGAIN TO AN UNEXPECTED SITUATION, THE PROFILE AND ABOVE ALL THE BOOKMARKS WERE THE SAME LIKE BEFORE (A FEW FROM THE NEW INSTALLATION INSTEAD OF HUNDREDS FROM THE OLD PROFILE).

So i ask for advice how i can get the old profile/bookmarks to the new System. Or maybe - if anyone knows - how i could run the old ffox at least once again to save the bookmarks by using the bookmark-backup. (I made a backup but it was too long ago, a lot of new bookmarks were added in the last time.)

I would be very thankful for any advice/information to solve the problem.

With kind regards



System: Desktop-PC (Intel 6600 Dualcore, 2GB Ram, 2x Seagate Barracuda 320GB), Win7 64bit, firefox v37.0.1

I use FF at planets.nu ... with version 36.x I was able to select text from a message pane on this site.

After updating to 37.0.1, FF don't hightlight text within the message pane. I cannot copy 'n paste the text into clipboard.

I read a lot about old "copy 'n paste errors" in former FF versions. I checked the mentioned settings under about:config ... change nothing there. Everything was fine.

I checked also, if other browsers are not able to copy n' paste the message content. No problems there.

I checked the CSS settings for the HTML structure ... no settings found that prevent copy 'n paste.

No idea whats going wrong or where to start the search for a solution.

The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

any idea how to resolve this?

Hi. I can't sync Firefox from my old Surface Pro 2 to my new Surface Pro 3. Both run windows 8.1. Firefox synced OK over a year ago to my Surface 2 OK but I lost the password.

On SP2, I updated FF, deleted the old Sync account and set up a new Sync account. On SP3, I set up the same account. When I sign in to the SP3 sync account, the message "Sync will start momentarily" displays but nothing happens.

Following your forum suggestions, I made these changes to both SP2 and SP3. 1. Disconnect and reconnect to Sync. 2. Delete the signedInUser.json file in the profile folder with Firefox closed and possibly delete the Weave folder as well. 3. Delete and re-create the FxA account. at https://accounts.firefox.com/settings

I also Reinstalled FF on SP3. Same message but won't sync. Appreciate any suggestions.

I have three email accounts on BTYahoo. At present they are upgrading, and, whenever I log on, I get a pop-up telling me this. There is a box to tick so that I do not receive this message, but it does not work on Firefox. I contacted BT and they told me to try another browser. I used Internet Explorer and could remove the pop-up, on Explorer, but not on Firefox. I wish to use Firefox, as it is more convenient, but BT almost seem to be trying to prise me away from my choice. Can you do anything to sort them out?

Hello,

Very recently the way CSS changes are displayed changed : now I need to use "Command + Shift + R" EVERY TIME... in the past just reloading the page would show the modifications.

I've also detected that ClearCache extension doesn't work anymore, neither does CacheToggle. I suspect something has been changed in the way the cache is handled.

Any idea ? Using Command + Shift + R all the time just to see a CSS modification is a real pain in the butt and if every extension allowing me to disable caching don't work anymore I don't see any other solution.

Thanks,

Cheers,

PS : using FF 37.0.1 on OSX Yosemite
