I have a MAC, I need to use Firefox to open a website. I've installed the certificate properly and the website was running well, a couple of days ago I'm not able to open the website and I've tried everything. Reinstall Firefox, import the certificate again, but nothing seems to work.

I keep getting the following message: The connection has timed out.

An error occurred during a connection to XXXX WEBSITE NAME XXXX

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I want to use discord in firefox instead of using the pc-program. It appears that my firefox.cfg has some preferences that block discord from gaining microphone access. I never used multiple firefox profiles but that changed now, i created a firefox profile for discord purpose only. However my firefox.cfg is active in both the default and the discord profile, again blocking microphone access.

As i said currently i use firefox.cfg and autoconfig.js to customize firefox preferences, but since this makes it impossible for me to use discord i will have to find another way to modify firefox, so the question is how can i use multiple firefox profiles with different preferences? Can this be done with a user.js file? After all what is the difference between using firefox.cfg and user.js?

By using the last version of Firefox (74.0) when visiting a website with security connection I got the following error : "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to .............. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem." With the previous versions of Firefox there was no such problem and I could visit the above website. So, please inform me what happened with ver. 74.0 ? By ver. 74.0 is no more supported some older security protocols which might have the above website, or this is a bug by the new ver. 74.0 ? Please inform me how this issue can be fixed ?

I was messing around with Privacy & Security settings. Under Cookies & Site Data, I checked Delete Cookies & Site Data when Firefox closes. I've decided I don't like it and want to uncheck it. But now it's greyed out and I can't find any way to change it back. It says I'm in permanent private browsing mode. There MUST be a way to change this back to how it was! What is it???

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

Dear community,

Transferring my passwords from an old profile backup (v 49) to a profile in a newer version of Firefox (v 77.01). I'm copying across the logins.json and key4.db files like it says here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_passwords. but it still doesn't seem to show my passwords in the new Firefox version when I look in the preferences. I did happen to notice that the key file version is named 'key3.db' in the old profile whereas the corresponding file in the new profile is 'key4.db'. I don't think they're compatible. My question is can I move my passwords from the old profile to the new profile in Firefox v 77.01? Please can you tell me if I can do it offline/locally like this? I don't want to do it with Firefox sync. I'm currently having problems signing into Firefox sync so that isn't an option.

Kind regards,

Matt

The control page of my locally connected printer at 192.168.1.5 is being blocked as a "dangerous" site because it doesn't have a valid certificate as a web site. It's literally RIGHT NEXT TO MY COMPUTER! No path to the public internet is involved! How can I make this an exception (i.e. a "trusted site") to the certificate error blocking routine? I don't want to drop certificate checking for OUTSIDE web pages, just the one that controls my printer (the same IP address is accessible for printing and scanning, but not for editing my printer's options).

The frame for the printer's home page displays but with no data, and no data is displayed when anything is clicked. I've tried to add a screen shot but it doesn't upload.

Firefox Autofill Frustration, Am I doing it wrong?

I love the AutoFill feature, with some exceptions. And I am hoping someone can offer a solution, even if it is to tell me I am doing it wrong.

It seems like others would have a similar problem, and it is sort of difficult to explain, although I'd think there would be a simple solution. Anyway, let me try to explain...

When I use the autofill option, it is usually while placing an order, or filling out my account details for whatever shopping site, or gaming profile, etc. But I have multiple addresses I need to consider when I am shopping, and need to send the order to one or the other, instead of my regular address. Like placing an order that I want sent to my mother's address.

As anyone knows, when you change something, like the address, state, zip or phone number, you end up with several autofill entries. Like this...

First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but I can't see it in the pop-up) First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but my work address, which I also don't see) First Name, Last NAME First Name, Last Name FIRST NAME, Last Name First Name, Last Name

These pop up, all valid options, the next time you start filling out a form. Which is great, because ONE of them is the one you would like to use, but there is no way to see WHICH one points to the one you need. The first one is my normal address, phone, etc, but the autofill pop up doesn't show you anything other than the name, the second is my work, but I can't see that it is... only the name. The third might be my mom's address, but again, I have no idea because only my name is shown...etc etc etc.

Is there a better autofill plugin out there, one that lets you label them? Or some way to show more than just the name? Just showing me the same name 12 times, without any way to know what the right one to use is, kinda makes the autofill feature useless for me. If I only had one phone, or one address, etc, the feature would work great. But since I have about a dozen addresses I routinely use, each with their own unique state or zipcode, or phone number, has rendered autofill useless unless I only need the common "top" one.

I hope I've made it clear what the problem is. And no, using a unique firefox profile for each is not the answer. I'd have to log out/off firefox and switch profiles several times in one shopping or gaming session, which would only make the solution highly annoying.

It would be nice to find a plugin, or any other solution, that would let me label, or differentiate each from the other when the autofill pop-up gives me the option to fill the form.

Like... Home - First Name, Last Name Work - First Name, Last Name Mom's - First Name, Last Name Gary's - First Name, Last Name

Anyone have a solution, or feel my pain? Or am I simply doing it wrong?

ANY help is greatly appreciated.

I have been using MOZILLA / Netscape/ Firefox Since 1996/7. Periodically I have a problem . LIKE RIGHT NOW I have to use Chrome to contact you because your latest version is seriously corrupted and under attack from ; "attachappstreams.best You already know that because you've got a web page warning us of it. But you don't have a way to fix it. No matter how many times I delete it. Reboot my Windows 7 desktop. Or open and close the latest version of Firefox. That damn phony update keeps popping up with bells and blue screens and I can't use your browser until YOU GUYS figure out how you screwed up and gave them access. ADD ons and Ad blockers are equally dangerous and I limit them to only 2 for the past 5 years. Get a handle on the is , guys/gals . Or sadly, because I really don't like Chrome. But what choice do I have. FIX IT. IT Quickly. Or you're going to lose serious market share. Just like you did to Internet Explorer 20 years ago.
