Since the latest version 67 installed the four and dollar sign key enter as "n" and "N" respectively when using Firefox All other keystrokes work fine including numbers and numbers shifted keystrokes. In order to get a "4" I must use the numbers keypad. Not sure how to produce a dollar sign.

Why does Mozilla schedule releases of Firefox (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Release_Management/Calendar) while the current release if full of bugs that will be carried over to the new release? I have stayed with 52 simply because the higher the version, the more freedom that is removed because of security while the real problem is that the developers do not know how to write code.

Getting "Secure Connection Failed" message on site that works fine in Chrome and has an A+ from Qualys SSL Labs and Mozilla Observatory

When trying to load my personal Nextcloud instance, I receive the error in the title. I have tested the site every way I can think of, but the site's security is fine. The site loads fine in Chrome and on the Android version of Firefox. When using chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.xul , I received the error "This site attempts to identify itself with invalid information." Only problem is, after looking through the cert, I can't find anything that's invalid. I have attached everything I can think of that's relevant.

I have tried a new profile (same error), Safe Mode (same error), disabling security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling in about:config, disabling my antimalware (Windows Defender), and refreshing Firefox. I don't know what else I can do to try and fix this.

Hello,

Starting Firefox and going to https://www.israelweather.co.il/week.asp - I get the "Insecure Connection" page. If, however, I go to a different site and then go to https://www.israelweather.co.il/week.asp - Firefox displays the page.

Any explanation or a way to solve the issue?

Thank you.

As of about firefox 63, it will no longer be possible to prevent firefox from checking for updates as the preference (option) to do so is being removed. In the past, it was simply a matter of setting the option to never check for updates. This is important in an organization as you want everyone to be at the same level. In such organizations, the latest firefox would be obtained once, checked out, then rolled out to the organization from it's support system team/person. Is there going to be a way to prevent the message "an update is available, please install?"

Browsing with Firefox takes my pc to hostingcloud.science infected with JS:Miner [trj] I have worked with Malwarebytes Support to get rid of it, to no avail, unless I use a vpn with Avast.

Will Saved Password Editor ever work again?

The Saved Password Editor (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/saved-password-editor/) was an excellent extension and highly useful extension, rendered inoperative by Quantum. While some people may think that this extension is no longer needed because of the built-in editor (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1186297) this is incorrect for a number of reasons:

  • Some website don't capture the login information and there is no way to manually enter the information: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1234322. Editing some json file is a ridiculous suggestion.
  • It annoying to navigate to the built-in editor and recently FF moved the "saved logins..." button down about:preferences#privacy so you now have to scroll in addition to clicking. Note: bookmarking chrome://passwordmgr/content/passwordManager.xul is handy, but doesn't solve the other problems.
  • The built-in editor does not allow editing the website URL or duplicating a login.
  • All of this make it impossible to use the built-in password editor to save things like PINs or answers to secret questions, all of which was very easy with the Saved Password Editor extension.

So will Firefox ever enable the Saved Password Editor to work again? The add-on page says that the extension needs a WebExtensions API. Will Firefox ever have one of those again? If the functionality was added into the build-in password manager, that would be good, too. Thank you.
