I have checked her browser against mine (downloaded latest version of the browser from the site last week, after a total hard drive replacement) and the settings seem the same on ll side menu items. She is getting this notice virtually every time she opens a browser page or visits a site.

Firefox is her default browser. Her laptop is running Windows 7.

She is getting extremely upset over this.

this site doesn't show any of the images and information. But Safari 9.1. does. But it has some security issues so I'm reluctant to use, in addition to the fact that FFx is my primary.

I have a very old (~2008) Firefox sync account that I would like to access. I know my email and password. But the password is 6 characters, and the new minimum requirement is 8 characters. The login form will not allow me to login with my old password due to the form validation, and if I perform a reset, I will lose data I am looking for. So, I need to know how I can access my old account.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

In the "Options->General Tab->Files and Applications" I have ticked the "Always ask you where to save files" option. When saving a file, (photos, videos ...), I do get the option of choosing where I would like to save it, but the file always saves to the folder that is defined in the "save files to" option. I am running Fire Fox 61.0 (64 bit) on a Windows 10 home (64 bit) platform. When I run Fire Fox in "Safe mode", The file(s) save to the folder that I point them to. I only have 8 add-ons, so I disabled all of them while Fire Fox is not running in "safe mode", but the problem continues to occur. I also tried refreshing Fire Fox, but the problem continues. This problem showed up after powering my desktop down at night, and then powering it back the next day. There were no Windows updates. I also ran virus scans with Malwarebytes, and Norton. Both showed that there are no infections.

There a posts about unchecking the Avast HTTPS Scanning setting to 'fix' some problem Websites with TLS 1.3.

This was fixed back on Jun 28th with an Avast Virus Definition Update. (Check your Avast settings to make sure you are receiving Virus Definition Updates automatically.) Later, a Jul 4th Avast Virus Definition Update brought the problem back, but was quickly fixed, and retained the same Virus Definition Update name, 180704-2 back on Jul 4th.

If you still have a secure Website/Certificate problem, it can be quickly checked by temporarily turning OFF your Anti-Virus Shields or disabling your Security Extension Add-ons to see if any of these are the problem.
