Hi,

I have been using a website daily without issue for several years, suddenly last week I received a message saying secure connection failed when trying to do a search function on the website.

It has today got worse as I get the message now as soon as I log on, rather than when I just do a search.

The site is fine and I have used it for years. Please see attached screenshot.

Please help as its really driving me crazy!!

Many thanks Helen

Running X-64 version 43.0.2 on Win 10 and I can't get rid of the View Pocket List from the drop down Bookmarks list. This question was asked before but is now archived. I've made the changes in about:config (browser.pocket.*) and removed the Pocket icon under the customize toolbar tool as recommended in the earlier question, but pockets are still in the drop down menu. I've restarted the browser several times and the pocket icon won't go away.

I continually have duplicated bookmarks appearing in my "unsorted bookmarks" folder, and I see multiple entries for the "History" "Tags" and "Downloads" items in the library (ctrl+shift+b).

It seemed to start with the extension "Eversync", which I uninstalled a while ago. I've restarted firefox, deleted and recreated my sync profile, and can't seem to get it fixed.

Any ideas on where to go or what to look for?

Untrusted Connection: Adding Security Exceptions Still Won't Let Me Through

"This Connection is Untrusted"

"Technical Details: blabla.org uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because it was signed using a signature algorithm that was disabled because that algorithm is not secure. (Error code: sec_error_cert_signature_algorithm_disabled)"

Whatever I do, I can't access this site. I go on it almost every day, so I know it's safe. At first, the "Add Exception" button wasn't even there at all, but after 2 hours of digging through the support forums I managed to get it to appear by Refreshing Firefox. But it doesn't work. So, I bring up the dialogue box, click "Get Certificate" and "Confirm Security Exception". But it doesn't let me go through to the site even with the exception stored. I even checked that the exception is stored under Options > Advanced > Certificates > View Certificates > Servers, and it's there!! So why is it, when I have the security exception permanently stored, that I'm still not allowed through?

All of a sudden the "Awesome bar" has stopped working. I type something in and no suggestions appear. It's happened on both my PCs: a portable (WIN 8.1) and a desktop (WIN XP SP3). I'm running the latest version FF 43.0.2 on both devices. I've never had this problem before (been using FF for many years). I'm not sure if this problem has appeared with this latest version, or in the previous one. The normal "search bar" is working correctly, but I desperately need the "awesome bar" back.

The portable PC seems to have fixed itself a few days after giving up on trying to fix it. Now I'm getting the same thing with my desktop.

My settings are as follows on BOTH the PCs, so if one works correctly I don't see why the other one doesn't.

In Tools > Options:

Search tab -Verified "Provide search suggestions" is selected -Verified "Show search suggestions in location bar results" is selected

Privacy tab -Verified all options are selected -Verified "Firefox will:" Remember history

Following FF's support documentation, I've verified "about:config" the following: browser.urlbar.autoFill;true browser.urlbar.autoFill.typed;true signon.autofillForms;true

Any advice would be welcome.

Suddenly, I am unable to post to 4chan. The error I'm getting is that the connection is untrusted.

If I open the Technical Details, the error code is "sec_error_cert_signature_algorithm_disabled". None of the solutions in the certificate FAQ cover this error code.

I've run my anti-virus (Avast) and MalwareBytes, neither turned up anything and the problem persists.

I did the update online thru Firefox, however have no way of determining whether or not it was successful. Noted that Web of Trust has an update of 12--8-15, however when I click on the icon "check for updates" , nothing happens. The icon for the WOT is there on the upper right portion of the tool bar.

How do I know I have the updated version of WOT?    What does the "refresh" link do?

Google isn't helping. I have no idea where this obnoxious and intrusive POS came from. I uninstalled all extensions (except the Canonical-supported Ubuntu customizations, which can only be disabled) and I'm still getting Offers4U.

But every answer I turned up, even here on the Mozilla support forum is for Windows or Mac OS X. Those are unnecessary and irrelevant to me. I could simply "sudo apt-get purge firefox" and be through with it, but then it removes 98% of my installed system. There is no, repeat, no way that I can run anti-malware software in Linux. So, that answer will be ignored. In fact, WINE will not let you run Windows software that deals with low-level details (the Linux kernel in fact blocks it).

I even tried running Bleachbit to see if that was the case. Still shows up.

I'm running out of options here.

I'm running FIrefox on IMac OS-X El Captain version 10.11.21. Pages I am on (especially on Facebook) randomly switch to other pages and then in some case return back to the page I was originally on. I've reinstalled Firefox and followed other suggestions, however the problem remains. Is this a Firefox problem or something other. More importantly is there anything I can do to fix this?

I use FF 43.0.2 I have been having problems with sites which I believe were safe, but which were blocked by FF because of certificate issues (generally slated "unknown"). These were sites that I connected to on a regular basis before. Finally being fed-up not being able to access these sites (no info available with this type of problem and iframe giving no clue) I followed a FF guideline and deleted the cert8.db The result has been the impossibility to connect to any HTTPS site. I finally found the temporary solution to disable BitDeFender's scan SSL option. But this made me uneasy. So I checked on the certificates themselves and saw they had (almost) all expired. What does this mean? Is there a way to ensure the proper updates are done, as seems to be possible using the check box "Query OCSP responder servers to confirm the current validity of certificates"? And how do I come back to a regular surveillance of the SSL traffic, or is it purely for show and ineffective? How can I trust a system telling me its own foundations are flaky? Thanks a million for all you guys do and a million and one for this particular issue if you have an answer. ;-)

Sometimes I close Firefox with the windows and tabs left open because I plan to use them the next day. I also close tabs after a crash when I have been running too many programs at the same time. When I open Firefox the next day, I'm asked which of my previous windows and tabs I want to restore and even though I only indicate certain ones, when they are restored there are old tabs that open up with them and I have to go through and delete each of the old tabs again. Today I tried not restoring anything, which closed Firefox. When I opened it again, the same window that I had unchecked was asking to be restored. I unchecked the window and closed Firefox several more times and then decided to open the window......this time there was a string of about 50 old tabs that opened up with the window!
