I am not trying to be cheeky here, or disrespectful or anything like that. I need a serious answer to my question from someone that knows what they're doing with firefox. Not someone that tries to act like a big shot here. Here is my question:

DOES ANYONE WITH FIREFOX ACTUALLY CARE WHATS GOING ON WITH THEIR SHITTY BROWSER??? SERIOUSLY. I HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS FOR SEVERAL YEARS. EVERYTIME I GET AN UPDATE.....I THINK TO MYSELF, " MAYBE THIS UPDATE WILL FIX ALL THE OTHER CRAP I HAVE GOING ON WITH FF" AND I FIND MYSELF GETTING ANGRIER BECAUSE EVERY UPDATE HAS A NEW PROBLEM. DOES ANYONE REALLY GIVE A CRAP ABOUT THIS GARBAGE SOFTWARE YOU TRY TO GIVE US?? WE GET THE SAME BS RESPONSES WHEN WE HAVE A PROBLEM AND I HAVE NEVER, EVER GOTTEN ANYONE THAT CAN ACTUALLY RESOLVE MY ISSUES WITH FF. DO THE PEOPLE THAT MAKE THE SOFTWARE TRY THEIR HARDEST TO MAKE IT AS SHITTY AS POSSIBLE? I DONT MEAN THAT SARCASTICALLY, I'M BEING SERIOUS. I CANT PLAY GAMES, I GO ON AND IT FREEZES UP, MY WEB PAGES DONT LOAD UNLESS I REFRESH THE PAGE, NO MATTER WHAT I TRY, SOMETHING HAPPENS TO IT. YOU, WHO CREATED THIS GARBAGE SOFTWARE, SHOULD REALLY BE EMBARASSED AND ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES. YOU'RE DEF NOT TOP NOTCH...YOU HAVE DONE NOTHING TO DESERVE ANY CREDIT. YEARS AGO, I WOULD SWEAR BY IT, BUT NOW, ITS CRAP.

SO NOW, TODAY, IT UPGRADED TO 40.0.3 AND GUESS WHAT, I CANT EVEN SURF A SITE BEFORE IT FREEZES UP AND I HAVE TO RESTART IT. DO US ALL A FAVOR, ( AND TRUST ME WHEN I SAY I SPEAK FOR MANY) IF YOU'RE GONNA GIVE US AN UPDATE, TRY AND MAKE IT BETTER THAN THE PREVIOUS CRAP YOU GAVE US!!

Signed, an FF customer whos fed up and DONE!!

Since installing Windows 10 I find that if I download a pdf file from the internet Adobe Reader DC freezes completely and I have to re-boot to overcome this. PDF files on my computer open OK. (Firefox says my Adobe Reader plug-in is out of date but I understand this is a false alert)

This comes up every time I do a search:

This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.google.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

My homepage is set to http://www.elevateschool.com Any time I open Firefox or try to visit this page while Firefox is open, I am redirected to a 404 (http://www.elevateschool.com/pics/index_divider.png) and cannot access the page I need to access most. No other browser on my machine is doing this; they all just go to elevateschool.com.

Can you help, please? I have searched all over for a solution and I have checked the box in Preferences>Advanced>General that says "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page" but this has done nothing to change the situation. Thanks

I have used this Add-on (Ham Links) for many years and it has always shown up in the "tool bar" location. Then it began to only show up after I shut off the Foxfire and then restarted it (sometimes this had to be repeated a couple of times). Now this add-on will not show up at all.....yet is is shown in my Add-ons Manager and is not Disabled/Removed. What can I do? I use this add-on almost everyday with my ham radio hobby. Thank you for your assistance. Jerry France K7LY

I think the screenshot speaks for itself.

I am not even able to install add-ons from Firefox's own add-on site. Yes, I did check the security section. Even though addons.mozilla.org was already on the whitelist, I went ahead and added services.addons.mozilla.org to the whitelist and I still could not download any addon. I then turned off the warning, and it still would not let me install the addon. I also restarted firefox each time to confirm the change was saved.

Firefox 40.0.3 Windows 10 x64

Hello,

I would like to receive much more intrusive web notifications so that I can actually notice them. But I see no option in firefox to customize how notifications are displayed.

I see in about config one undocumented option: notification.feature.enabled What does it do?

Is there a way to make firefox web notifications on linux more noticeable and void them disappearing after a few seconds? Maybe add sound as well?

Using ff 40 on fedora linux.

Event was originally imported from a third party (Eventbrite, or similar) to .edu college email. Every time I launch the Google calendar page, it opens on the event itself from June. I've tried discarding, deleting, removing all guests, going to Agenda view and deleting, doing the hokey pokey and turning all around--nothing has worked. The event keeps resurrecting with each new launch.

This only happens with Firefox (40.0.3) on my Mac Airbook OSX 10.9.5; when I use Chrome or other browsers, the Google calendar functions normally. All is normal when using PCs and other computers.

Unfortunately, this also affects my personal calendar, as I must share my .edu calendar events to my own personal calendar to synchronize schedules.

Please provide steps to clear this event from both calendars. Thank you.
