Until I received a new CAC I was able to log into OWA. Since receiving the new CAC I cannot. I have attempted to connect to other sites with the CAC and these are successful.

 It appears that FireFox is not looking for or asking for the CAC certificates.

I'm a native Dutch speaker, and also read and write a lot in English. Hence I have two dictionaries installed for spell checking: Dutch and English.

I often find myself using one language on one page, and the other on the next, thus having to switch the spell checker dictionary between Dutch and English all the time.

What would be VERY convenient, is either

1. The possibility to use two (or any number) dictionaries at the same time.

Or better yet:

2. The possibility to 'auto detect' the current language, and use that dictionary.

This auto detect thing could simply consist of seeing what dictionary results in the least number of detected spelling errors, and use that.

Thanks for your consideration, this sounds like a rather simple feature to me, yet I've been missing it for many years, and I have in fact found quite some similar requests from other people throughout the internet as well! It would make a great addition to Firefox!

This is the thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1048978?fpa=1#answer-preview

I keep getting this message:

"Oh, no! It looks like an unexpected error occurred. We've already notified the site administrators. Please try again now, or in a few minutes."

I also tried it using Safari w/the same results.

This has been going on for several hours.

Your instructions on creating folders aren't correct. for my Mac, saying nothing about having to Open the Bookmarks pull-down menu Select 'Unsorted Bookmarks' Go to the top 'Wheel' icon

THEN you can create a new folder, and other good things Bit of a pain. Otherwise, Firefox is great!

I had been using numerous sites where I my username and password was appropriately retained using Firefox 36.0.4. With the update to 37.0.4, all this failed. My stored usernames and passwords failed. Deleting these credentials would not work - I would enter them, the dialogue about whether to store these would flash in the upper left of the browser window, and I would be asked for my credentials again. Happened on multiple sites on different servers. Deleting profile and reinstalling V37.0.4 did not fix. The only solution was to scrub out V37.0.4 and reinstall the prior V36.0.4. How to communicate this to the Firefox developers.

My home page is my companies home page which requires authentication. Before the latest update I had no problems, but now it won't let me log in. I enter the credentials and hit OK and the box just keeps coming back up. I can log in via Safari with no problem so it appears that it's something in the security settings but I can't figure out what. I've tried a number of fixes that I've seen for similar issues, but none seam to work.

As an aside... it is way too difficult to ask a question through Mozilla Support!

Everything works when I start/restart firefox, then I can no longer scroll using the trackpad or my magic mouse after some time. The scrolling works in other applications, however.

Fixes I've tried that didn't work: disabled autoscrolling, smooth scrolling, and hardware acceleration. Turn on screen saver for a while and then log back in (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5557954?start=15&tstart=0), always show scroll bars in mac system preferences. Fixes that work temporarily: Resetting firefox, quitting and restartting firefox

Add-ons and Extensions I use: Adblock Plus, Firebug, LibX, Google Scholar Button, and Google Scholar Search Using: Firefox v. 38.0.1, Mac OS v. 10.10.2 Yosimite

Sometimes, but not always, I will download something from the Internet. It might be an .exe or a .dmg or a media file. Instead of coming through in a usable format, though, it will arrive as a binary file.

Today, there was a warning about a Skype "bug" that caused crashes. The recommendation was to immediately download a new version of Skype. This .dmg came through in binary - I had to use Safari in order to download the new version of Skype.

I'm unable to find a setting to cure the problem, so I'm hoping you can help me out. Thanks in advance!

I have read the other solutions to this and have implemented all of them. I disabled hardware acceleration, and updated all media drivers. This slowed down the crashes, but Firefox is still sluggish. I'm running Firefox 36.0.1 on a OSX 10.10.2 multiple addons.

Hi,

We are creating a new national portal in Norway, which is for victims of violence. This portal provides helpful information for the victims.

When we started to create this portal an important issue came up. How can we provide the best anonymity possible for these victims?

A suggestion is that we open links in a incognito mode, but we cant find a way to force open incognito mode. Is there a way to do this? We are open for suggestions. The main issu is to have a clean history.

Mac OS X 10.10.5

Firefox 40.0.3

I have set FireFox to use a proxy(just the browser not my entire system) but there simply is no prompt for username and password in Preferences: Advanced: Network: Connection settings. Additionally, many times people bring up changes that need to made in about:config but either those preference names no longer exist or they have no effect on this issue.

Does anyone know how to get FireFox to prompt for username/password or where to find the login?

Thanks, MDS

Fan runs high & hot watching youtube videos. Have new macbook pro retina 15" mid 2015. 2.5 GHz intel core i7. Started happening after second to last Firefox update. Updated to most current thinking it would be fixed. It doesn't happen if I use Safari. Apple support senior lead tried to resolve issues. Sorry, I'm not very technical. Tried shift, control,option start. Tried option, command,R,P start. Tried logging on as a new user. Tried so many options, I can't remember them all. Uninstalled, reinstalled,and uninstalled again. ran disk repair(?). Followed Firefox troubleshoot all the way to the end. Started in Safe Mode...everything. She told me to contact Mozilla to see if you had any answers to my issues. I also had issues last week with Firefox crashing 3-4 times in a row while watching youtube. I sent reports to Firefox. I hope someone can help me. I prefer Firefox to Safari! Thank you!

When I go to "https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/" to verify via PGP I only see the the "Firefox 40.3.dmg.asc" but no public key like other releases. If I try to validate the "Firefox 40.3.dmg.asc" using the "Mozilla software release public key" it does not authenticate. But If I go to Firefox 40. it autheticates usung PGP and it has the public key in the folder "https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/40.0/" Anyone know why?
