For the last 4 days (I believe since I was upgraded to version 58) firefox has been crashing my computer. The crash does not always happen, but it is sometimes repeatable. Firefox crashes different websites (youtube, amazon, and other random sites) When Firefox crashes it freezes computer. Then computer automatically reboots and asks if I want to boot into safe mode.

If I want to open a link from anything external, text editor, desktop shortcut, applications, etc., while Firefox is running, I have to close Firefox and then click on the link, which will then open Firefox. This is an ongoing and intermittent problem that can't always be duplicated and seems to occur most often after Firefox has updated, but I am asking for a resolution or workaround now because there hasn't been a recent update and Firefox is once again ignoring outside links when running, and only opening them if I have completely closed Firefox. This is annoying and unnecessary and of course if I change default browser to Chrome or IE, external links will open in those browsers with no problem while those browsers are running.

Why do all websites bring up 'insecure connection' page whenever I enable the HotSpot Shield VPN add-on?

I installed the HotSpot Shield add-on to my Firefox browser and whenever I enable it, every website (even ones I've never been to before) show an 'Insecure Connection' page error. I have Avast Premium, but I tried disabling every feature on it, including manually unchecking the 'Enable HTTPS Scanning' option. Nothing has worked. Also, I don't have Avast's VPN feature. Likewise, whenever I toggle HotSpot Shield off, I can access websites normally.

Please help.

We use an internal email server which is accessed via Firefox (MDaemon) and when pasting a screen capture (either via printscreen or GreenShot) in to an email, the image pastes twice.

This is only the case within Firefox, not an issue when using Edge.

It is occurring company wide so I doubt that it is a profile issue. I have tried running Firefox with hardware acceleration disabled but it didn't have any effect. I have also tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode but again, no difference.

Example shown below; paint window which was captured using alt+printscreen

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to try next?

Hi, Am unable to add any addon to the firefox. The click to "+add to Firefox" is showing connection error. See attachment. Tried directly installing from the addon's home page and that is where saw this error that the digital cert is not valid. Or is it someone or something is trying to proxing my connection.

I run https://www usufans.com and recently I've been getting complaints from some of my Firefox users that they are getting Secure Connection Failed errors. The errors are random and don't seem to be affecting everyone. I am able to replicate it on my machine but it's not everytime I load a page. Sometimes a page will load and sometimes it won't. I've tried in Firefox 57 and 58 both and neither of those versions have the issue at all. As soon as Firefox updates to the latest version the problem immediately comes back. The SSL certificate is from my host and every SSL test I try shows that it's installed properly. The problem doesn't exist in Chrome, IE, or Edge and it doesn't show up in earlier versions of Firefox. It looks like there have been similar issues in the past but none of the solutions have worked. Any ideas?

My old harddrive seems to be fried, I set up a new one and tried to log into Firefox sync.

I got the password wrong several times but at last today it seems I got it right and the next page was prompted including something like this "We send you an Authorisation Code to your Email, please tipe that in".

I received the Email and tiped the Code in but then was prompted to a page looking exactly like the login window and telling me "invalid password".

I repeated that process four times in case i got the code wrong, copy pasted the last Code and now I can't even get to that step anymore it always says "invalid passord".

Can somebody help, I really can't loose all my favourite saved sites and it seems that would happen if I reset my password.

I downloaded archived data of my own Facebook and Gmail accounts. The downloads were complete, but after the system woke up from suspension, the status of the files became "file moved or missing", while I didn't move or deleted the files. I tried to download again, and the same things happened. I use Firefox 60.0.2 and Ubuntu 18.04.

This error started cropping up lately, more and more: SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP Since a couple of weeks ago I can't use one of my bank services with FF (even safe mode, no addons), but Chrome doesn't complain.

Main complaint is: this error isn't mentioned in the "Learn more…" link offered on the error page. Secondary (by not much) is: it isn't mentioned anywhere else either.

I really have searched, time and again (as in "lately" above, couple of months) hoping perhaps someone would post something helpful. Perhaps then this could be it.
