When I am on a web page, I have to click the mouse right button and select open link on new tab or windows to be able to visit the link from the same page. For example when I am on ollusa.edu, if I click academic and select schools and collages, the page will not open. I have to right click on the mouse and select open link on new tab or windows. I cleared my cache and cookies and still have the issue.

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.

Apparently Firefox doesn't realize the importance of Tabs to many of its users. As a Senior, I depend on the separation of the tabs. I see many others complaining about this issue, including those who rely on the separation for business purposes. FireFox chose to answer one user's request by saying they're moving on and basically, the user is just going to have to deal with it.

I love(d) Firefox, but it's time to say good bye. The tabs are a make/break issue for me. I've started the migration back to Microsoft Edge, which does allow tab separators, at least for now.

I hope that Firefox will reconsider at some point and allow us to put separators in just as it does on the Favorites Bar.

Thank you.

When I call wget on a webpage, I get raw HTML in response. I would like to write a simple parsing script which extracts the main article text content from web pages with similar structure, i.e. different documentation articles about Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications. I am pretty sure I should inspect the HTML tree, figure out which nodes tend to contain article headers and paragraphs, and then just write a script that retrieves those nodes. What would be the simplest way to inspect the HTML tree to find the nodes, and then with which library should I extract the text content from those nodes? Thank you

Using latest updated Windows 10 and latest updated Firefox 92.0, when I open up Google Maps and click on "Show your Location" button it shunts me off to the middle of Chicago, rather than downtown Menlo Park, CA.

I double checked whether my WIndows Settings were set to allow location, and it was still set to "On." I also tried using Chrome and there, everything worked as expected. I also tried Microsoft Edge, and there it was broken as well.

So, the problem could be with Windows or Firefox apparently...Not sure how to fix or at least work around the problem.

Since sometime in August 2021, I suspect after an update, occasionally when I launch Firefox it reports that it was unable to restore a previous session. I do not have the option to open previous sessions selected. On other occasions it starts properly with a blank page as it is configured to do.

Am I missing a setting?

It is not a major problem, I can simply enter a URL or search string in the address bar and it works properly for the rest of the session.

It is happening both on my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs running the 64-bit version of Firefox.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

Hello,

I am having issues with error messages when browsing with Firefox.

This error PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR and this error SSL_ERROR_RX_UNEXPECTED_APPLICATION_DATA I don't get these errors when using Chrome or Microsoft Edge.

When I reload the current page, the page loads properly.

I've tried these tips so far: refreshing Firefox, setting to "no proxy" on network settings, turning off Avast, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, checking manual proxy on my PC, restart my computer, refreshing Firefox, checking the clock on my PC.

Is there anything else I can do to fix this?

Thank you for assistance.

Fairly regularly I go to the Quora.com site to answer questions others have asked. Perhaps in one in four times I launch Firefox browser and go to this site it will not respond beyond the first page and eventually report that something on the page is slowing the browser. If this does not happen, everything works normally and very quickly.

The only way I can continue is to close the browser completely and relaunch. Even if I wait a minute or so, when I relaunch it tells me Firefox is already running and asks if I wish to close it. If I let it close the browser, the new launch normally works perfectly.

When the problem occurs, opening other tabs and closing the original one does not seem to make a difference. It still does not work properly.

I am not sure when this started, and I have only experienced this problem on this one site. When I have tried using the Chrome browser I have not seen this happening on this site. I don't like the Chrome browser but have it installed to allow streaming my screen to a Chromecast dongle.

The Firefox browser in the Windows 64-bit version 92.0.

This start happening a few weeks ago (it is now mid September 2021). I am not sure whether something has changed in Firefox or in the Quora site. I have seen this problem on both my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs.

I browsed a clothing website for less than 5 minutes by typing in the address and not using any links. Shortly after I receive an email asking if I was still interested in what I was looking at. Does Firefox share my email address with websites I'm visiting? I believe the email is coming from SafeOpt, not the website I visited. I do have "do not track" options selected in Firefox.

Hello,

This has been going on for few months and it doesn't seem to be going away (in fact, I see more complaints about similar issue around the net), so here it goes.

Up until Firefox 87 with Widevine 4.10.1582.2 I had no problems with Netflix. Then Firefox 88 with Widevine 4.10.2209.1 was released and every time I watch an episode of a show the screen freezes for several seconds while sound goes on. If you rewind and reach that point again, it doesn't happen again. However it's inredibly annoying when it happens at the climax of every episode.

I stopped updating Firefox beyond 87, but then Widevine 4.10.1582.2 stopped being supported and had to update or not being able to watch Netflix at all. While I can still watch movies, I had to start using Edge to watch tv shows (and I really don't want to do that).

I haven't noticed it happening on a movie, possibly because the last few minutes are credits which I don't watch. But there's a possibility it only happens on episodes. This is only my suspicion, but it happens right after the episode finishes buffering, so maybe it has something do with that or maybe some process with next episode is beginning while the current one is still being watched.

I'm not exactly sure it's something you can fix on your end since it seems to be involving Widevine, but would be great if something could be done.
