Everytime I start a Firefox window the first time there is a certain delay, after the the delay Firefox ask me for my master password. That's fine! But if I start Firefox and move to a website which require a password which is stored in the Firefox password manager before the end of the delay, Firefox ask me instant for the master password. The problem is, if I start to enter my master password it often happens, that at the end of the first mentioned delay and in my writing process a second window with the master password opens. Isn't it possible to deactivate the second master password window if there is already one? Would love that feature and would improve my usability experience. Thank you so much, for what you do! Richard

There are several sites, on what seems to be an ever growing list, on multiple computers using Firefox ranging from versions 37.0.2 to the latest version that are getting a "Connection reset". (The different versions were used as part of the tests to find if the problem was related to a specific version of Firefox)

I initially thought the problem was related solely to the http vs https access but, whilst trying to access this support site, I found that both the http and https variants returned the same error.

http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewforum.php?f=38

For example, if I go to http://www.staticice.com.au I will get a Connection reset error. If I go to https://www.staticice.com.au the site loads and works fine. The same for http://www.dvdfab.cn and https://www.dvdfab.cn.

What is even more interesting (at least to me), is that if I connect via my VPN, the http variant will load and work fine.

I've worked though the solutions described in the below post but they have not resolved the issue for me.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1056868

There is nothing in my Windows firewall that I've added. I've tried with an empty hosts file, and I've even uninstalled and reinstalled firefox.

I get this message: ""Document Expired

This document is no longer available.

The requested document is not available in Firefox's cache.

   As a security precaution, Firefox does not automatically re-request sensitive documents.
   Click Try Again to re-request the document from the website.

"" So, after clicking try again 20 times to get back to the page that I could always go back to before, it gets tiresome. Is there a way to have firefox NOT protect my security quite so aggressively, so it WILL automatically re-request the socalled sensitive document? OR which version of firefox will I have to go backto to avoid this hassle? AND is there a way to KEEP that older version? And thisa is not the first time firefox is doing something which is really really annoying formy benefit

This morning on another computer I added some suggested addons in firefox and now when scrolling the page zomms in and out instead of movung down the page. When I tried to ask for help by using the 'Search Mozilla support' it kept bringing up things that were related to shortcuts. I deleted 2 of the addons (I think) - tab developer and highlighter and that solved some other problems that suddenly appeared.

Good day,

FF version 38.0.5 and 39.0 crash during opening first website. Version 37.0.2 works just fine.

In doing a bit of research I believe the problem is with Websense Triton AP-Endpoint DLP.

In my case, and many others I saw in various crash reports, the failing module is QIPCAP.DLL.

I am running Websense Triton AP-Endpoint DLP version 8.0 Build 2081.

ID: dfe4ea5a-6efa-4215-b8b5-ff1992150703 Signature: qipcap.dll@0x7d21

I am a long-time enthusiastic Cleeki add-on user, but after the most recent upgrade (WIN 8.1 x64) of Firefox 37.0.2 to 38.0.1 the horizontal channelbar of Cleeki has dissappeared. It used to automatically show up on text selection, and present all its usefull functions. When text is selected and the right mouse button is clicked, the context menu item "Cleeki - Firefox accelerators" is still there and can be used though. Functionality is still ok, but invoking has become tedious. I had to restore a previous disk image backup of my entire system. Help! TIA for looking into this...

When I was checking out Plug-ins and updating them, I was not prepared for the Adobe DC with Cloud and the other things it has to offer. The Adobe XI that I had contained my PDF files. When my Vista OS fell apart, I lost quite a few things. The only thing I do not like is that you cannot get the older version of Adobe back on the desktop unless you are an IT person, which I am not. I know it has to be on the hard drive. I have tried to download it, but it comes up this an error stating that Adobe DC is the version I want. I have a Dell Windows 7 Professional Inspiron 3847 2013. I just wish I could have my Adobe XI.

Ever since Firefox made Youtube videos only play in HTML5, no matter what quality setting I have on the video I'm watching, when I view the video on fullscreen it has low framerate. This problem does not happen with other video sites that uses Flash, like Twitch, Blip, or Dailymotion.

Is it software related to the browser or hardware related with it being HTML5?
