Hi, signing in to addons.mozilla.org always prompts me to enable 2FA, and there is no way to progress without doing so.

I've disabled 2FA because I need it that way, but Firefox force me to enable it.

I'm NOT a developer. How do I fix that?

Thanks in advance.

I have tried this with the Troubleshooting option "Temporarily Disable Extensions" and the problem still occurs. Firefox 101.0.1 (64 bit) on Win10, Intel.

To reproduce:

Go to https://www.healthgrades.com/ . Search Carlene Bolen (any name?) in Tulsa, OK. Click on first result. Opens a new tab to https://www.healthgrades.com/providers/carlene-bolen-29brb. So far so good. Click on page. Hit PgDn 3 times, or scroll down quite a ways (to comments). Hit PgUp or attempt to scroll to top of page. Tab goes into infinite loop toggling between "X" and reload symbols on the NAV bar. Also page no longer renders properly and F12 debugger won't open. Firefox process for that Child tab uses 35% of processor, but doesn't show anything unusual in Firefox "Task Manager" process list. Must close both the child tab and the previous Healthgrades parent tab. Eventually the offending Firefox process exits and everything looks normal.

I wanted to get an couple new addons to my firefox browser. But whenever I try to get one i get the message 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt' whether I save the file and install it in windows, or trey to install at the firefox addons page. I have done multiple re-installs of the latest browser, cleaned every file out of the system, even joined this community in case I have to get some kind of membership to get addons.

I am out of ideas to solve the problem, and I cannot find anywhere on the internet where the 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt'. problem I have is solved. Please help.

Is it possible to turn off EVERY signle certificate check/verification in firefox?

  1. "Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE"
  2. "Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT"
  3. "Bulleted list itemMOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_MITM_DETECTED"
  4. "SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN"
  5. "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER"
  6. "etc etc... EVERY single certificate check!"

In the past it was really easy just start with "--ignore-certificate-errors". Now it's like moon landing, all options are hidden or have under a hundrred layer option list. Anything in the "about:config" ? browser.ssl_override_behavior 1 security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling false

(Please do NOT comment its unsafe and other things, that's not what I'm looking for)

After last or previous update, Firefox does not load home page. Get message with last tabs:

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back.

We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

Still not able to restore your session? Sometimes a tab is causing the issue. View previous tabs, remove the checkmark from the tabs you don’t need to recover, and then restore.

Did all this it is still happening. Last time removing some file folder did not correct. Do not want it to restore last session!

What is causing this?

I also checked if it was issue with Windows, but it works fine when I tried downloading the same file in Chrome and Edge.

Attached is a screen shot showing MS Edge (Bottom left), Chrome (Middle), and Firefox (Top RIght) As one will notice, the lower two has symbol on left side where as Firefox does not. It would be nice to have a symbol/Logo on the left site to make it easier to identify in a screen full of different browsers. It should be done for brand recognition. I use different browsers depending on what I need to do.

I entered my password accidentally into the username field on a webmail page. It keeps showing several entries I made in the past every time I log in. How do I get rid of these entries? I searched the subject and all the suggestions of deleting it in the dropdown box with SHIFT+DELETE or CTRL+DELETE don't work.

I also use Vivaldi browser and I have the same issue when logging in to webmail. The list of usernames is different from Firefox so I know the lists are tied to the particular browser. I was able to delete the entire list with Vivaldi and I logged in to webmail and auto-fill list is gone. Can't do the same in Firefox. Please help.

Firefox 101.0.1 (64 bit) causes a false error message about a Java plugin which doesn't exist on my installation. This didn't happen with Version 101.0. On Netdania.com I get "You are currently running a browser version that does not support Java plugins anymore. We recommend to switch to Internet Explorer or Safari on Mac. ". Netdania supports html and is not dependent on Java. I use Netdania.com successfully with the Chrome browser, no Java plugins and it used to work with Firefox 101.0.

A few days ago I opened my monitor and was greeted by Firefox, already open, with the session erased. No clue how or why.

I found this thread [restore firefox session]. Very helpful.

I solved the problem by copying the latest upgrade.jsonlz4 file in the sessionstore-backups folder, renaming the copy as sessionstore.lsonlz4, renamed the original to sessionstoreold.jsonlz4, and replaced it with the copy in the main profile foider. It worked fine.

The only problem was the backup file was 2-3 days old, so there is a disparity between the content of the latest erased session, and the tabs from the backup.

I'm confused why there wouldn't be a backup created whenever the browser is closed, or something to that effect.

Is there no way to increase the frequency of created backups, and the quantity of of theses backups?
