Getting error: he page isn’t redirecting properly
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.
I cleared cookies, enabled/disabled cookies, restarted, re-installed browser, re-started in safe mode, disabled hardware acceleration, etc... (all the advises I already saw in the support forums. Nothing helps so far.

I receive a devotion each day. When I open the email I only see portions of the email, not the complete email. I contacted Time Warner cable and they helped me with the problem as much as they could and told me it may be a problem with my browser because I was able to receive the complete email using another browser.

I absolutely hate everything about Quantum, except that it's fast. But if I wanted a fast browser, I would have switched to Chrome years ago. I've been a loyal Firefox as my main browser user for years because of other things that are now just gone, and I am very disappointed. I am using the current version of Quantum on Apple OSX.
I've searched online for help about this, but all I find are very general solutions (that I already know about) or click-baity articles talking about amazingly fast Quantum is. (It's actually not: it's about the same as Chrome, which is nice, but not worth the hassle of the rest of it being messed up.) Note: I am not an inexperienced or unaware Firefox user. I do web design. I can usually figure out problems myself. Etc.
I get upset just using my computer now, and it's really not OK.
Here are some specific problems:
1. Updating to Quantum removed the add-ons. This one is obvious, and others have talked about it, but this is the main reason I've been using Firefox. You're very close to losing a user here, just for that. That's why I used Firefox, not speed of course.
2. Updating reset the URL-bar autofill and similar preferences. I realize this sounds like a minor problem, and it's beginning to get refilled by using the browser often, but it's also incredibly annoying to have to fill these in again. I didn't realize how much I relied on that until this happened, but it's very important to me. The main reason is that I have some proxies (like through my university) to access paywalled (etc.) content, so that I could have previously typed in part of a URL and then changed the ending. For example, using a DOI to look up an academic article through my university's proxy. Now that works again because I manually repeated the URL enough times that it finally started filling it in automatically again. But other similar URLs are missing.
3. I would not complain so much if this was a one-time thing, but actually if I try to launch an older version of Firefox-- I tried to see if I could still use my add-ons when needed-- then it completely resets the new version as well. So just by OPENING the older version, all of my settings are reset in Quantum too, and I have to start over again. That's ridiculous. I would also like to see the option of running both simultaneously so I could have my add-ons in one window and current browsing in another, but I understand why that might be difficult. So while I would like access to the old version, now I refuse to open that app so it doesn't break my current app.
4. The worst part, and what I'd like the most help with, is why it keeps resetting my default "open with" applications FOR MY WHOLE COMPUTER. This is just infuriating, and every time it happens I consider deleting the Firefox app. This has happened to several kinds of files, but the one that I use often is PDFs. I want to open PDFs in Preview. Not Adobe Acrobat. But since Quantum, Acrobat keeps being re-selected as the default for my whole computer. Oddly this seems to be caused mostly by using print preview (via PDF). To reset this on the computer, I go to "Get Info" for any PDF file, then manually select Preview from the menu (it has disappeared from the default dropdown menu there oddly!), then I click "Change All..." to set that for all PDF files on the computer. And it works. But once I use Firefox again, either downloading a PDF, or using print preview (via PDF), often (not every time, but at least daily) everything is reset again, and Acrobat opens instead, and then ALL PDFs on my computer are opening with Acrobat again. That is not acceptable, and I'm tired of resetting this manually. I have of course set Preview as the default application in Firefox's preferences, but that doesn't seem to actually work.
I am hoping that maybe future updates, and add-on developers catching up, will make Quantum back to what it used to be. But I want to be very clear: if not, you're losing a user, and Firefox is going to end up extinct. Breaking it to try to catch up with other browsers was a horrible idea. You won't get new users because it's fast, and you also will lose your existing users because it no longer serves a different purpose. Very bad planning!
I cannot express how much of a negative impact this has had on my experience as a Firefox user. It was not a perfect browser before, but it did what I wanted. Sometimes when I had too many tabs open it would crash, and that was frustrating, but easily fixed by restarting it. Simple. Now it's fast but doesn't do the things I want, and it's messing up the settings on my computer. One step forward, two back. And I'm seriously considering abandoning Firefox for software that doesn't automatically update to an unusable state.
Oh, and a minor point: I hate the new look too. I don't want a fancy Firefox. I want my old Firefox back (try about 20 versions ago), rather than the constant tinkering to try to make it look cool. I find it invasive and pointless to change how the program looks, especially when it's just cosmetic. I'll deal with this because it doesn't really matter, but I want to say I'm not impressed by this either. As I said, I hate everything about Quantum, and I think you would find many other users who are having the same gut reaction to this mistake.

When FF starts up, I want ZERO sidebars to open up, REGARDLESS of what sidebars I had open when I closed FF.
I typically have many tabs on many windows open, some with sidebars, some without. It is impractical to go through all these one by one before closing FF. I generally close FF via File > Exit for maximum safety.
I have FF set to "continue where I left off."
[Please do not tell me I need fewer windows or tabs open, or ask why I would be stupid enough to want the behavior I'm asking for. Please do not tell me to update Firefox, unless you know for a fact that the newer version will have the behavior I am asking for.]
Firefox Quantum 57.0.4 (64bit) Causes screen to blink - Problem and Resolution (at least in my case).

The Problem: Firefox causes the screen to blink.
My PC details: Firefox Version: Quantum 57.0.4 (64 bit) OS: Windows 10 Professional Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Extreme P2.40 Processor: Intel Core i7-4771 RAM: 16GB Display Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce 210
Problem Details: Since the auto-upgrade to the above version of Firefox, my screen would blink (turn dark) for a second every time I re-sized the Firefox window, opened a 'New Private Window' and sometimes when loading a new page. I am not sure if a Windows 10 Professional update may have also contributed to or caused the problem.
Resolution steps taken: My searches returned only two possible solutions from Mozilla Support: 1) Try launching Firefox in Safe Mode. This would disable all 'Add-ons" and 'Plugins'. 2) Try disabling 'Hardware acceleration'.
Neither of the two worked.
I uninstalled Firefox and then deleted almost every Registry entry for both Firefox and Mozilla I could find. I then Installed Google Chrome. Chrome did not have this issue whatsoever.
However, within a day, I had separation anxiety. I missed Firefox as I was a Firefox user for as long as I can remember. I uninstalled Chrome, deleted all it's Registry entries as well and did a fresh install of Firefox Quantum 57.0.4. I was hoping a clean install would not have the issue. Sadly it still did.
The Resolution - Problem fixed.
I decided for some reason to check the UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface), which is the replacement for the BIOS in older motherboards.
Here are the steps: 1) I selected the 'Advanced' tab. 2) I then selected the 'Chipset Configuration' 3) Under the 'Chipset Configuration' I selected the 'IGPU Multi-Monitor'. The value of this setting was 'Enabled'. I only have one monitor so I changed this to 'Disabled'. 4) I exited out of this setting and went back in to ensure the setting was saved as 'Disabled', then exited out once more and out of the 'Chipset Configuration' and finally the UEFI and Saved the changes and rebooted the computer.
On launching Windows and then Firefox, no more blinking issue! Problem solved!

Windows 7 - Firefox v57.0.4 64bit I'm a computer programmer and work for a corporation that requires Firefox to utilize a proxy URL that is pointing to a proxy auto-config (PAC) file URL. My job requires me to often switch FF to use, and then to not use, the pac proxy. With FF prior to Quantum, this was not an issue as there were multiple add-ons that handled this for me with a single click. The add-on developers tell me that there is no Quantum API provided by FF to allow them to develop one-click solutions that work with .pac files.
In a nutshell, I need to be able to dynamically switch to and from a proxy URL pointing to a .pac file in one click, without going thru menus.
Can you tell how to do this within FF, or alternatively, provide FF profile and properties information as to where the menu-driven proxy information is stored so that maybe I can write a local program that will do the switching?

Just to clarify from the start: I don't fancy Quantum and will stick with my 55.0.3 (64-bit) of which I have and see no problems with. Please refrain from telling me off.
I always updated Firefox at my convinience (see image lower red arrow) Once Quantum was released, I get recurrent threats of an alleged "critical out of date..." (see upper arrow).
How can that be if the option of non-updating is still in place? It indicates Mozilla is running something in the background. It raises a suspicion whether other things on the system may be scrutinized with this hidden "check" too.
Wonder which previous versions were already affected from this kind of spy- or malware behaviour. However, this is a serious breach of our privacy and much more a security threat than something "critical" to come.
Please stop it.

Sometimes, apparently at random, Firefox decides to wipe the extension settings for all my extensions and deleting all my scripts from TamperMonkey.
I haven't quite figured out why this happens. It happened twice this week, it happened once last month. I just got up this morning, turned on my browser and for some reason it greeted me as if I did a fresh install of my addons, requesting me to setup all the settings and all my scripts were gone, vanished as if never installed.
Why does this happen? How do I restore the addons settings (is there any backup Firefox maintains?) and how do I prevent this from repeating.

I am getting an SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER on some (but not all) Google domains, YouTube for example. I am only getting the certificate error inside Firefox (I also have Chrome and Safari and they don't report a problem) and I *am* continuing to get the error while in safe mode (with all extensions disabled). I have added the troubleshooting info to this post, so feel free to check out the plug-ins I have installed.
I have read the troubleshooting guide on SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER and I do not have any of the problems listed there. For example: I do not have any AV installed and my timezone and date/time are correct.
I've gone though the certificate chain (see reply - the chain is too large to put into this post) and the root cert looks off to me. It claims to be 'GeoTrust Global CA' but the fingerprint does _not_ match the fingerprint of the cert visible in the Certificate Manager (Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> View Certificates -> Authorities -> GeoTrust Global CA -> View) and the Issuer is 'O=Equifax, OU=Equifax Secure Certificate Authority' whereas it should be 'O=GeoTrust Inc. OU=GeoTrust Global CA'.
I think this problem only manifested itself yesterday (perhaps the day before), and I haven't installed any new software recently (although it is possible something may have updated itself).
Now, I suspect that I could make this all go away by trashing or refreshing my profile, but I'd quite like to know where this cert is coming from. If I do happen to have a rouge plugin (or similar) then I'd prefer to know.
All help and suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance!

Is there a way to change the playback device that firefox uses? I am trying to set the audio from firefox to a device that is not set to default. I cannot change that device to default, as it is being used by another program that requires it to be the default.
I understand that previous versions of firefox had user created add-ons to solve this problem, but they are not compatible with the newest version of firefox. The third-party solution that I have found for other apps, does not work with firefox or the other program than I am wanting to have on separate audio devices.

I have attached a screenshot of Firefox and Chrome side-by-side showing the same page. Note that the problem persists in most other websites (it is not the specific to have problem).
I tried to start Firefox in safe mode, but the problem persists. i tried to disable any themes, but still the same. I also made sure that the default theme is selected. On other machines with Firefox the problem does not happen.
I tried to move my profile folder to another machine and the problem was also moved! So something I guess is wrong with my profile?
Any ideas on how to fix this?
