With last update, I couldn't open Firefox and Firefox Developer at the same time. I've already seperated profiles enabled, I've already checked the "Allow Firefox Developer Edition and Firefox to run at the same time" but nothing changed.

As of about a week or two ago, my Firefox Developer Edition has been having "Firefox Developer Edition has stopped working" crash messages when playing Youtube videos. The error message will display roughly 4-5 times, and then the video will play. The browser itself never crashes.

I only have Ublock Origin and Reddit Enhancement Suite for addons, and I've disabled both of them, however the browser still has these crash errors. I have also run the browser in Safe Mode, which didn't yield any different result. I even cleared my cache, but no difference there as well. Lastly, I disabled hardware acceleration on the off-chance that this was the issue.

I did uninstall and reinstall FDE, but also failed to change results. What else can I do?

I am running with Firefox 66.0b13 (64-bit) and ubuntu 18.04.2

This morning my computer started downloading stuff. This went on for over an hour. I check the download in tools and the only thing there was something from yesterday which was done yesterday. The reason I noticed is because it was sucking up all my internet.

Is there anyway to see just what firefox is downloading and where its putting it?

thank you..............

Hello,

I've been having issues with Firefox crashing over the past few weeks, increasing in how often. Today, it crashed 6 times with the above report IDs. I tried reading the crash reports but I don't quite understand what's it's telling me. Any advice on how to fix it?

Thanks,

Each time Firefox is updated I keep getting Firefox Not Responding, and this happens EACH time there is an update. Refresh does not help. New tabs open up very slowly AFTER getting Not Responding. Changed performance settings with no change. I do not have any add-on. This is truly very disruptive. If I could figure out how to import all of my saved web pages I would stop using Firefox and use Edge. As of today I HAVE NOT received any answers on how to correct this problem from Mozilla

I'm a premium member at Bill O'Reillys and receive no spin news to view. I use to be able to view the no spin news up until approximately 7 weeks ago. I can no longer view the no spin news and I haven't got a clue as to why. I am not tech savvy and I have spent many hours trying to locate the problem unsuccessfully.

After signing into my account to view the video it gives me hlsjs:video file not found. I am able to view the video of the day but not the no spin news. I tried google chrome and Internet explorer and it says the same thing, video file not found. I'm sure there is someone that has the solution to my issue. Help and thank you.

Firefox uses a Master password to protect Certificates stored in Firefox's separate-from-Windows Certificate store. UNlike the (more security-flexibly configurable) Windows Certificate store, Firefox either doesn't protect certificates at all (no Master password) or only 'protects' the whole of the imported certificates by requiring a Master Password (wrongly prompted right at Firefox start time) for the whole of a LastPass user session. In short, if Firefox is running, the certificates (and other things 'protected' by the Firefox Master password) are not well protected.

In contrast, Certificates stored in the Windows Certificate store may be individually configured with various levels of security (no password, prompt on each use, or prompt-with-certificate-specific-password on each use).

Firefox must offer equally flexible security levels for Certificates.

I have firefox quantum v66.0 (64 bit). When I check for updates under help/about an update download begins but then my computer crashes with an APC Index Mismatch stop code. When I log into firefox I get a page offering a down load of firefox quantum which I already have. Sometimes when open firefox I get a dialog box asking permission to update firefox. Clicking yes results in a blue screen crash with the APC index mismatch stop code. My operating system is Windows 10 home 64 bit. I can use firefox if I don't attempt the update but would like to have the latest features. Should I perform the offered download? Is there another solution.\?

I've read through 'Firefox Multi-Account Containers' at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/ . In particular, "Sign in to two different accounts on the same site (for example, you could sign in to work email and home email in two different Container tabs." - but it does not instruct us on how to make it work.

What I am trying to get working is two separate accounts at Amazon... A container for a personal account, to shop at amazon. Another container to access the affiliate store account, a completely different amazon account. And without having to log in/out manually all the time.

I have installed the Amazon Container ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/amazon-container/?src=search ) and it works just fine. However it traps both the shopping site and the affiliate site into the same container. When I log into my affiliate account, it remembers that account when I go to the shopping site.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am running Selenium automated tests in Firefox. The problem is that, when running tests on Firefox, the browser is open in "Browser is under remote control" mode and then the session cookies are not kept when the browser is closed.

If I authenticate on my web app out of this "Browser is under remote control" mode, the ai_session cookie is kept as expected. It only is discarded when I am on that mode.

Taking that into account:

1. Is there a way to configure Firefox to keep session cookies even when running in the "Remote control" mode? 2. When configuring Selenium WebDriver, is there some option that allows me to force the browser to keep the session cookies?

So the issue i'm having is that the login page for google seems to be broken in some way. I have 2 google account. one for college and one for my youtube. my college one works but my youtube one is what seems to break the page. I can try and get it sign in to my youtube account by tell it to forget my other account but then i'm left with the sign in page and a next/login button that clicks and nothing happens. whenever I get the page to accept that the account exist and try and quick select it, it then loads forever and doesn't sign in. If i open the browser in private mode it doesn't have this problem though but I don't want to only use the private browser as I use my history to re-search things a lot. I have tried clearing cache and cookies... I have tried reinstalling firefox... I have tried scanning for viruses and malware... I literally don't know what else to do... I even tried removing my add ons. nothing worked. If anyone else might have some insight on this I look forward to the help. All I know for sure is that it's been about a week since this started.

I'm having problems with my dropdown notification and profile menus at this particular site:

https://splinternews.com/

The problem only started after the patch for v.66. The problem is that when I navigate to the site, the dropdown menus - which you get by clicking on the numbered icon or profile icon in the top right of your page after you log in - work sometimes and other times you can't. I makes the site mostly unusuable since you can't see your notifications. It's kind of a crap-shoot. I thought messing around with and toggling on and off "Performance" standards might work, and it appears that it does change things for a minute or two, but then it ceases to matter.

Do I need to downgrade? Where is the downgrade page?

Hello

I have had this issue for 3 days now. I am unable to access yahoo mail or yahoo in general because I get warning potential risk ahead message. I had to make twitter account to be able to get in touch with yahoo support but they just offered a yahoo link which, of course, I am unable to open because of "potential risk ahead". I tried solutions suggested by people here at mozilla support, like clearing history, cache etc but it didn't work. I also tired accessing yahoo via internet explorer and chrome (installed on my father's laptop, windows 10) Of course same message appears. I am using windows 7 64 bit. I also tried Edge and of course it says yahoo site is not secure. I have never had these kind of problems before. I was always able to access yahoo via FIrefox and other browsers. It's really damn annoying because i see no solution to this damn crap. Also I am unable to upload a 170kb screenshot to show you the issue. Just keeps loading and loading and it doesn't stop. So I guess I will just have to describe it:

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to guce.yahoo.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for guce.yahoo.com. The certificate is only valid for *.amz-aws.jp. Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

https://guce.yahoo.com/consent?gcrumb=gscOGxw&trapType=login&done=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.yahoo.com%2F&src= Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match the server’s certificate. HTTP Strict Transport Security: false HTTP Public Key Pinning: false
