Each morning, when I first cold boot my computer, the moment I open my Firefox browser, I receive numerous (10+) identical error messages from Bitdefender:

Suspicious connection blocked: Feature: Online Threat Prevention

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to content-signature-2.cdn.mozilla.net. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one.

Question: Is this ACTUALLY coming from Firefox? If so, please match your security certificates! If that's impossible due to a technical issue, then please email me your confirmation so that I can add an exception to Bitdefender.

Question: If it's not coming from Firefox, please email me, letting me know what additional system information you require so that we can get to the bottom of who/what is masquerading as Firefox while attempting to establish an unauthorized Internet connection from my computer.

HP Envy laptop, Windows 10 OS, latest update.

This has been occurring for several months.

Thank you for your time.

Change in the way Firefox suggests as I type in the address bar

Until recently, when I started typing in the address bar, FF was offering suggestions that were clearly based on addresses I had gone to in the past and seemed remarkably prescient about where I wanted to go. For example, if I typed the name of my hosting service, Seanet, one of the top 2 or 3 choices would be Seanet's login page.

Now, if I type "sean" for example, I get a bunch of irrelevant stuff ("sean connery") and about 10 lines down, it says "firefox suggests" and one of those is the login page. I ran into an article talking about how to change settings under privacy/address bar, but those don't affect this behavior. They change what might be the source of suggestions, and I limited it to browsing history, and that didn't help at all.

Maybe this is something that can't be fixed, but things were easier when FF listed very near the top the actual addresses I went to. Not all have deteriorated, e.g. (to reveal stuff about me) typing "x" gets xkcd.com as the first suggestion, and typing "e" gets explainxkcd.com as the first (sorry, sometimes I don't get the computer references and need an explanation).

Any help would be appreciated.

I cannot set my preferences because the preferences menu will not display when I select Command, from the pulldown menu under Firefox in the top left banner. I am stuck with whatever this is. I cannot set my search engine. I cannot set my popup preference. I cannot set any preference. I use Mac BigSur 11.5.2. I can't share data. I am having trouble streaming my favorite radio station because I cannot reset my popup preference for the station. Nor can I use my search engine: DuckDuckGo without typing it into the Start search box because I cannot set my search engine preference. I cannot set other preferences because it seems I don't have any options since I can't get the preference menu.

This is my error code: bp-b9b9c80e-b9ae-42f4-9dff-b2ee00211028

On certain websites, for example unsplash as described in the error code, Firefox always crashes. First the whole window including the menu bars will flash white and then it will crash... Opening in troubleshoot mode will lead to the same result.

Thank you if you can help me.

French expat in Asia I noticed that since the launch of this free website, Firefox 93.0 running with macOS Big Sur 11.6 is unable to connect properly with the French TV5MONDEplus website. Access to the site is entirely possible but the connection seems to stop as soon as you try to view the programs offered… This problem doesn't arise by using Chrome.

I can pin Firefox to my Taskbar and used to be able to pin shortcuts to that but all of a sudden I cannot pin shortcuts to that Firefox that it is sitting on the Taskbar. I drag them to the Firefox shortcut on the Taskbar and a message pops up “Pin to Firefox?” but when I right click on the Taskbar Firefox link there are only the original shortcuts that were there before this problem began. I have tried Uninstall & Reinstall but nothing works.

I am using Google Recaptcha on my website but it is not working properly in Firefox. After test, I found the problem is the cache system, because when I enable disk cache or memory cache, the Recaptcha can't be loaded properly after refresh page unless do the force refresh by pressing the SHIFT key.

Can Firefox disable cache for Google Recaptcha related file(javascript, css, etc)?

Please help this.

Hi,

I receive your emails on security (How to avoid wire fraud, spot spyware, smash spam and more) and my concern is holding all my passwords in Firefox Lockwise on my Windows devices which are synched. If someone or some process gains access to one of my PC's they would also I presume gain access to all my passwords. Is this true? If so, can I implement password access to my Firefox Lockwise passwords on Windows machines?

Thanks for your thoughts and hopefully reply.

best regards, Terry

Yesterday morning all was well. As my usual custom I opened my Microsoft Outlook, checked email and went on with my day. Usually I leave that tab open, but for some reason it got closed. About two hours later I tried to open it again and it will not load, nor let me login to my Microsoft365 business account. I contacted Microsoft and spent two hours on the phone with them trying everything to get this to work. What we discovered: Outlook online opens fine with every other browser, and if I do a private browsing page in Firefox it opens. I've changed nothing in my Firefox settings for many months, but suddenly something is interfering with my ability to get into my email. This, in combination with how slooooooooow Firefox has been over the last month or so is tempting to completely switch to a different browser. Not what I want to do, but it's terribly annoying to not be able to get in my email without having two browsers open at the same time. Please tell me this is in the works to be fixed!

Hi,

It was OK for me to download file from a link before, but since a while ago, when I single click on any link (ex., Firefox Installer) it showed nothing and nothing happened (Normally I think dialog about if open or save/when to save should pop up). I also try other way to open the link then: 1. If I try to open a new tab on link, then a empty tab was opened (as attached image). 2. If I right click the link and click "Save Link As..." then it will pop up the save folder selection dialog.

I hope to have any suggestion to fix this issue. Thanks in advance for any support.
