On a particular website, I click the lock in the address bar to see if the connection is secure. It is reported secure, see first image, it also says which CA verified the certificate. All seems well but if I click on more information, i get what is shown on the second image, firefox suddenly reports that the site is not encrypted. The website runs on IIS. This happens with both internal CA issued certificate (the ca is imported into firefox as trustworthy root) as well as with letsencrypt issued certificate. Neither internet explorer nor chrome find any anomalies and report the site as trustworthy and all certificates in order. Why is this happening and what is the cause? (i have another server at the same site running also IIS with exchange where the certificate shows correctly in firefox)

I want to build a progressive web app. This app requires the user's GPS coordinates. In order to test this functionality cross-browser, I use w3schooll geolocation implementation. Link: https://www.w3schools.com/html/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_geolocation

Compared to Chrome, Firefox sometimes returns the wrong coordinates. For example yesterday (13/03/2020) the coordinates were wrong all day. Today (14/03/2020) the coordinates are right. The coordinates are crucial for the success of the app. I use Firefox 74.0

I backed up my laptop's profile on Dec 3. I've since made changes to bookmarks and such on that system, but can no longer access to the computer. So I'm going to copy the backed up profile to a new computer.

Question: a) Will sync work from the profile data and saved credentials copied to the new computer? b) Will sync update the new computer with the changes that had been made on the old computer since Dec 3?

Changing the address bar width in Firefox - 2019

This is a Solution. As of version 69 Mozilla Firefox no longer auto searches for custom scripts IE: userChrome.css (see below for more info) that reduce the width of the… (read more)

This is a Solution.

As of version 69 Mozilla Firefox no longer auto searches for custom scripts IE: userChrome.css (see below for more info) that reduce the width of the address bar once placed in the Firefox Profile folder. In order to do that create a Folder named chrome on the desktop. Step two: Create a .TXT file, rename the Extention from .txt to css rename it userChrome.css" and place into the Profile folder with the following Code

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* numbers are adjustable */

#urlbar-container { max-width: 400px !important; }

#search-container { max-width: 200px !important; }

In order to Locate the folder, If your Firefox was installed by .EXE file the Profiles" folder will not the Program Files Folder (In order to locate it 1. Hit the Windows button Lower left 2. Hit This PC 3. Locate C Drive 4. Go to Users, Find the name you named your PC 4. AppData 5. Roaming 6. Mozilla 7. Firefox 8. Profiles) unless you are using the Portable version" in which case the Profile folder is in the Data Folder. Or just search for Mozilla" to find the Data folder from there, then open the Profile folder.

The scripts still works, again as mentioned on the 1st line of this post, As of version 69 Mozilla Firefox no longer auto searches for custom scripts IE: userChrome.css. So you will have to enable it to do so, or it won't work. In order to do that (1) Open a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk. (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste the word userprof if it's disabled, double click it to enable it. (3) In the search box above the list, search for toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets preference is not already set to true, double-click it to switch the value from false to true.

(4) Close Mozilla Firefox (5) Insert the chrome folder you created it into the Firefox Profile folder (Tips on how to find that folder, above). (6) Insert the userChrome.css file with the code in it (Instructions above) into the chrome folder in Profile folder. (7) Open Firefox.

Sidenotes. The numbers located in the userChrome.css file are adjustable. If your URL/Adress Bar are too long or short, lower the number incrementally to suite your preference. This is a working Tutorial as of Firefox 70.0.01

I thought i'd take time to create this because I had much difficulty trying to find the solution. Hope this helps. I think having the transparency of the entire address on the Browsers is a potential violation of Privacy.

After I first got the message I uninstalled Ffox and reinstalled it. Same message. So I can't get to any ffox menu, or buttons because I only have the one page with the message.

One suggestion was to uninstall and delete "firefox program file" but I can't find any file with that name on the C drive Mozilla Firefox folders

What can I do?

Hi,

Whenever we open Firefox, there is a firefox.exe running the background that CANNOT be stoped no matter what we do. We are using ADMINISTRATOR account with elevated privileges, but if we try to close it, it simply doesn't react at all. Sometimes it even states that we do cannot perform the action. It consumes high CPU and sometimes it even crashes the browser, and whenever we restart it, the process "pops ups" again.

We have done the following checks: - Scan the Server with multiple anti-viruses: no viruses to be found. - Disabled the plugins: no luck in doing that - Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox: the process is still there

Any help Will be much appreciate it.
