I am not able to access CBS.com Live TV option using Firefox v56 on Xubuntu 16.04. In trying, I receive a message: can not find your location. However, I am able to get access to the CBS.com Live TV, via Google Chrome. It appears that CBS.com only supports Google Chrome features (i.e. communication protocols/security). Is there anyway to make Firefox v56 compatible with CBS.com. If not, will the next version of Firefox have the same capabilities as Google Chrome?

I cannot share my location on websites such as maps.google.com or openstreetmap.org

Firefox does not prompt me to share my location and even if I give permission manually, it still doesn't work.

Refreshing Firefox made no difference.

"geo.enabled" is set to **true**

I am in Limerick Ireland & use Firefox as my main browser, but when it returns google search results, it converts to Russian. Scrolling down to the bottom of the page, the location is given as UKRAINE. As mentioned I am in Ireland, and my stated preferred language is ENGLISH. I am concerned and more than a little irritated as it is not easy to report problems

For security, I use Bitdefender total security which includes a VPN on an iMAC.

Thank you for your help in advance

Bypass the "Secure Connection Failed" error?

Hello! My partner is unable to access the following secure site via Firefox 55.0.3: https://mdlandrec.net/main/ He receives the error message: "Secure Connection Failed. … (read more)

Hello!

My partner is unable to access the following secure site via Firefox 55.0.3: https://mdlandrec.net/main/

He receives the error message: "Secure Connection Failed. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." (Full error message screen shot attached.)

Meanwhile, I am able to access the site with no problem, using the same version.

The error message suggests I contact the site owners, which is not possible. The site is a state government site and the owners are not responsive. I cannot wait for this problem to resolve itself. Is there any way to bypass this security so that my partner's Firefox can access the site?

Thank you! BenGW

I have a VPN on my PC in the USA, but whether it's turned on or not, most websites identify my computer as being in Europe (normally Germany or Austria)... When I go to buy something, the price is in foreign currency... I NEVER have my VPN connected to foreign hubs (always USA), so how do I fix this problem in Firefox?

Hello,

I am having the following problems using Firefox, the first problem is that when a webpage needs my location Firefox tells me error browser does not support this.

Second problem is that when I use youtube so time the video clip will start to play then just go off and back to the main page, and other times the first video will play fine but click on the second video link and it will load for about 2 seconds then go back to the main youtube page. last time I report this problem I was told to clear all the temp and cache files from Firefox which I did and this fix the problem, I have Firefox set to clear all the temp and cache files when I close Firefox, also I am running the latest version of Firefox.

Any help with these problems would be great.

Thanks

Matthew

Why does the DNS of my browser constantly switch itself to a Belguim location even though I have manually set all of my network adapter DNS to USA?

I have tried everything I can think of to manually set the DNS addresses in all of my network adapters and when i first start up Firefox, it shows my DNS (using whoer.net) as the one I set it to. But usually after about 5 or 10 minutes it starts showing either two DNS addresses, the original one I set and also one from Belgium (194.187.251.66), or just the one from Belgium, for some reason. Is there any way to stop this from happening? I am using a vpn and socks5 and if the DNS location does not match my IP address location, then it looks like I am attempting to hide my location.

Thanks for your assistance.
