Every time I start Firefox with a new profile, despite trying in several ways to make this not happen, Firefox automatically makes a series of requests to URL's and will retry them repeatedly when those requests fail.

``` GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 POST https://shavar.services.mozilla.com/downloads?client=Firefox&appver=60.2&pver=2.2 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 POST https://shavar.services.mozilla.com/downloads?client=Firefox&appver=60.2&pver=2.2 ... (and so on) ```

I am trying to make this not happen. I'm ideally looking for a setup where Firefox will make no requests at all without me explicitly telling it to but just eliminating the two requests above would be a great start!

Here's what I've tried so far:

1. Uncheck "Provide search suggestions" in `about:preferences#search`

2. I've followed these instructions --- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

2. Here are a combination of select settings from my `user.js` preferences file that I put in to place before opening Firefox in my attempts to stop this. Some of these may or may not be relevant but I'm including them so you have some idea what I've tried: ``` user_pref("app.update.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.tabs.crashReporting.sendReport", false); user_pref("browser.crashReports.unsubmittedCheck.enabled", false) user_pref("browser.search.update", false); user_pref("browser.search.suggest.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.systemAddon.update.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.update.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.downloads.remote.enabled", false); user_pref('browser.search.geoSpecificDefaults.url', ); user_pref('media.gmp-manager.url', ); user_pref('browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.updateURL', ); user_pref('browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.gethashURL', ) user_pref('browser.search.cohort', ); user_pref("services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.urlbar.suggest.searches", false); ``` Any ideas?

When I access a web site that requires client certificate - and I have several different ones, including those on hardware tokens - the prompt/popup is malformed. All the certificates are listed HORIZONTALLY, making it impossible to scroll through them and select the correct one. I can walk through the available ones, highlighting them via Up- and Down-arrows, but that does not change the real selection, and the displayed certificate remains to be the first one.

Automatic certificate selection does not work for me, because the site in question requires Email certificate instead of Authentication certificate.

I am using Windows 10 and I have recently had two Firefox updates. Following these I am unable to use safe money and therefore on line banking. I have had Kaspersky instructing me to do all sorts of things to no avail, and all I keep getting is safe money is already running.......god only knows where, or error, cannot open in protected window. I have logged out and back in . I have looked at my plugins and all sorts, and followed loads of instructions sending screen shots and doing reports. and still the blooming thing won't work. I have wasted about six hours going round and round in circles and it is causing me a lot of inconvenience, and when you are at work all day using a computer the last thing you want is to come home and have to spend hours trying to rectify something that was working on Saturday. Kaspersky don't seem to know what the problem is, but I am tearing my hair out, and I will now have to go to the bank and sort out what should have taken me about five minutes several days ago. Any help would be so appreciated because I am not the best when it comes to computers but I do try and have a go, but this is driving me up the wall, and because I am at work I only pick up my emails at night, and so the last two nights have been dedicated in trying to resolve this annoying problem that no one seems to be able to rectify. I would be eternally grateful if someone can help me before I have a nervous breakdown. Thank you.

I had a system crash, probably with Firefox opened.

After restarting PC and starting Firefox, most of the addons I have had lost all of their settings and were reset to default - Tampermonkey lost all the scripts I had installed, uBlock lost all settings and rules, etc. Weirdly some extensions kept portions of their settings, like TreeTabs saved tree structure despite also getting reset to default.

Additionally Firefox also got its own settings reset to default, while the tabs from my session and bookmarks were saved.

Is there any way to recover addon and Firefox settings, is there any backup of them?

I have Kaspersky Total Security which is great for on line banking because it uses Safe Money, but since the latest updates from Firefox I am unable to use it. I keep getting an error message in some sites and others won't even open at all it goes straight to the normal window without protection. As kaspersky is a add on, do I have to grant permission in private browsing to allow this site to be accessed. kaspersky do not know what is causing the problem and believe it is Firefox that is causing the issue. To be honest Kaspersky has talked me through several procedures and still it will not work.

So, do I need to grant permission in private browsing and if so how do I do this please as I have looked at several forums and I would be grateful for some clarification?

Many thanks

Julie

So a while ago I accidentally put my PC into hibernate mode, after waking it back up the PC proceeded to crash. (This has been a problem with my PC since I got it. Still don't know why it can't go into hibernate mode without it crashing but this is not the issue right now.)

Anyway after the crash, I log back in and everything for the most part is fine, except Firefox. I had firefox open when it crashed, so I expected it to be effected, but for some reason a lot of my add-on data just disappeared. For instance, a lot of tabs opened up as if I got the add-on for the first time, which can't be right. Stylish lost its webpage edits, Reddit Enhancement Suite's setting information got reset, the theme I was using wasn't active and I had to turn it back on, and the toolbar(not sure what you call it) had reset back to the default appearance with the flexible space and what not. I want to get back the firefox information before the crash. I would think firefox sync would fix this but it didn't. I'm very confused on why this happened.

Using Ubuntu 18.04, 4.15.0-33-generic GNU/Linux, and Mozilla Firefox 67.0. Other browsers work fine, so it is not an internet connectivity issue. Firefox uses no proxy, and has IPv6 disabled. It cannot open a local server like 192.168.1.4, so it is not a DNS resolution issue. If I run it from CLI, I get the following:

Sandbox: seccomp sandbox violation: pid 25975, tid 25983, syscall 53, args 1 1 0 139885284952128 0 139884708835328.

Happens after a recent update, so may go back to earlier version.

Hi,

I was aware of the recent issues as first reported back on the 3rd May regarding 'Add-ons disabled or failing to install in Firefox' (https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2019/05/04/update-regarding-add-ons-in-firefox/comment-page-5/) in which workarounds were offered or users were advised to update to the latest version. I myself am using the latest version 67.0. I can see all my installed add-ons and can even update and install them where required, but I cannot seem to install any new add-ons at all.

I have included two screenshots showing that I am using the latest version and the second which does not show the usual 'Install add-on' but instead shows the button 'Only with firefox, get firefox now, even though I have firefox installed.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I have spent many hours trying the suggested fixes and I cannot get them back and I do not have my password so that I cannot change if for fear I will loose access to the bookmarks. There seems to be no accountability from Mozilla and no way to reach any one. Is anyone else having this problem.
