I am having trouble accessing a site that doesn't support https. For the longest time, I could access it just fine through http, but now, for some reason, it redirects to https, no matter what I do, which just gives me a cloudflare error.

I can access it in other browsers by just editing the address to http://xyz.com rather than https://xyz.com.

I'm aware others have encountered this issue, but the proposed solutions do not work for me at all.

I've tried: -Clearing my site security preferences file. -"Forgetting" the site through my history. -Disabling my addons -Disabling 'network.stricttransportsecurity.preloadlist' and 'browser.fixup.fallback-to-https' in my about:config. -Ensuring that https only mode is not on.

A Refresh DID fix it... only for it to break again pretty much immediately after I reloaded the site.

This is exceptionally annoying, as I have my Firefox configured how I want it, and I don't want to swap to another browser. Any solutions?

Hello Firefox. You have been my go-to browser for many years now. I am always using the latest version for Mac. About ten days ago, two of my four sites became blocked, with the "Secure Connection Failed" notice.

I am a low-income independent working artist who needs for people to have access to my sites. GoDaddy sees no issue on their end (all four of my sites are under the same deluxe hosting account with the exact same SSL encryption), and all four sites show up on Safari and Chrome. Until now, I have preferred Firefox.

These are the results at Why No Padlock using the Firefox browser: https://www.whynopadlock.com/results/447e5a19-3baa-4374-ba79-a9829eeef737

According to Why No Padlock, everything is perfect.

To make matters screwier, none of my sites are e-commerce or take info from people. They present information and there are links off site to places like Amazon and Instagram, but there is nothing of a security issue on any of them, PLUS I have SSL encryption properly configured, anyway, no matter what, so that there would be no issue.

Please re-instate public access to my sites. I am sure this is a glitch of some kind. Nothing else explains it, but I need them to be LIVE ASAP, as I am trying desperately to make some kind of a living with the pandemic having cancelled all my shows. Thank you!

If something like this can change unknowns to me does this mean that Google has control of my MAC and FireFox and its content .??

What is the last Firefox version that works with MAC Lion OS X 10.7.5?

I have a study program of that vintage that plugs into firefox and the version on the computer now is 3.0.10 (from year 2009 and the program does not work with it.

The program is compatible with Lion OS X 10.7.5 but the Firefox version is too old.

The version 3.0.10 on the computer does not work well with most sites or crashes. The intent is not to expect to browse, just be new enough for this program for its dedicated use.

Hello!

I've set up an AdGuard Home server in my network. It provides the DNS-over-HTTPS service, I added it to my Firefox Network Settings configuration as https://adguard.example.com/dns-query and my machine has adguard.example.com in its /etc/hosts file.

The upstream AdGuard DNS server is my home router, which has several static DNS entries added for hosts in my network, e.g. foo.example.com pointing to 10.0.0.100.

During regular use, the domains resolve properly - when I navigate to http://foo.example.com everything works OK.

However when my machine is connected to VPN, the browser is unable to connect to http://foo.example.com, but it is still able to reach: http://10.0.0.100, regular internet as well as https://adguard.exaple.com (which is obtained from /etc/hosts).

This is on MacOS, using openconnect as a VPN client (and of course, the VPN connection changes the host DNS servers, this is what I'm trying to circumvent with Firefox' DoH feature).

I noticed one thing: with VPN, the use-application-dns.net resolves to something, without VPN it does not. I found this article, which mentions: "When any of these checks indicates a potential issue, Firefox will disable DoH for the remainder of the network session, unless the user has enabled the “DoH always” preference as mentioned above."

I have DoH explicitly enabled, the network.trr.mode is set to 2 (tried 3 as well, did not help). There's no such option as "DoH always" in the settings!

How do I make Firefox ignore the use-application-dns.net and always use my DNS server?

I'm confused by this issue as Firefox worked fine until recently but an older version doesn't fix the problem. At first I only had issues with LibreOffice and Firefox. LO would only open in safe mode, Firefox opened but did not working correctly. The fix for LO was to disable skia so I suspect that is the cause of the Firefox issues, but it could also be a driver issue. Weird thing, Google Chrome also uses skia and although I had an issue with Chrome suddenly not loading, an uninstall/reinstall fixed it. I am aware skia is a Google project so it may be that Chrome and Firefox use different versions of skia.

Issues: Firefox opens and I have my extensions etc across the top but the main window is blank. No websites display. Switching tabs doesn't work. If I open a "More troubleshooting information" tab for example, I can only access/view that tab by closing the first tab. A few menu options work (help menu - Troubleshoot Mode and More troubleshooting information both work fine) but Settings doesn't work. I tried Firefox in safe mode but it makes no difference. I tried refreshing Firefox but it makes no difference. I tried clearing the startup cache but it makes no difference.

This is on a dual boot with Windows 10 and Ubuntu Studio 21.04. I also have Firefox v93.0 (64-bit) installed on the Linux partition and it works fine.
