Been having this problem over the last couple of months with Firefox 55.0.3 (64-bit) running on a Windows 10 Pro. It has been so bad that I've often waited for up to 5 minutes while the 'Performing TLS handshake with .......' message displays. Yesterday I installed Chrome. Attempted to connect to a music forum using Firefox that I've had the TLS problem with and as usual got the message. Immediately started Chrome and attempted to connect with the same forum. No problem. Read a couple of comments, replied to one and logged out. Meanwhile, Firefox was still waiting with the TLS message..... A few seconds after I had completed the exercise using Chrome, Firefox decided to connect me..... I have previously tried all the solutions suggested such as emptying the cache, going to No Proxy, turning off IPv6 etc. but nothing has worked in Firefox. On another machine on the same home network, running Firefox 52.3.0 (64-bit) on the esr channel I don't seem to have the same problem, at least not as frequently..... I'll add that I am running both Avast Anti-virus and Malwarebytes. Turning off these had no effect on the Firefox TLS problem. Both were running when I successfully connected using Chrome. I am reluctant to discard Firefox as previously I have found it to be fast and reliable, but something has happened the last few months to dent my confidence.... Just tried it again today to the same site on the Firefox 55.0.3 machine, and it took 85 seconds to connect to the forum page with Firefox. With Chrome, the connection was almost instantaneous..................

Did Firefox Support Forum go back to its previous version within the last few hours, or did it just happen to me? This can be deleted once I get an answer, but I'm asking, because I had a long-running thread on the other forum and need to know if I need to repost my problem I was working on. For instance, this was my most recent crash:

Ever notice that the sites that insist on the user disabling Ad Blocker to continue browsing are the ones that run 20 flash ads at the same time? Not to mention the half GB of content it seems that they download on every click?

Here's just one egregious example: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7919337/Last-flight-Wuhan-Everyone-wearing-masks.html

When I disabled my Ad Blocker, CPU usage went to 98% and the page froze my browser.

How do you guys deal with sites like these? Do they realize that this "heavy-handed" approach is counterproductive?

Example: https://www.stuftpizzabarandgrill.com/catering/ AND MANY OTHERS

Pages do not display properly and are difficult or impossible to read only in FF. This is a regular problem on many sites, not just this one.

In this particular page, FF displays black text on a very dark gray background. I just checked it in IE, Chrome, Opera, and Safari for Windows and they all show white text, making it readable.

This is obviously a problem with the way FF displays pages and ONLY FF.

Using Vista but that should not be an issue. All the other browsers checked show the page properly.

Corperate softwarw download. so saying download another version is not going to help and it would not fix the issue.

so i download the version available Firefox ESR V2.4.8 - 2.4.5 (CCK2)

now for some reason it thinks i want FF in french I do not. and i do not have any idea why it chose french.

my location in Germany. my operating language is English. others in the office are German and and have German operating systems and they get FF in German. what gives?

yes i have been to Contenu - Langues - and selected English but as you know that only tells what language to show the pages in and has no bearing on the UI.

so back to the French would it have picked up on my corp. user name? or may family name? which just so happens to be French.

oh expect loads of spelling errors in this as the spell check is working overtime in FRENCH.

BUT FF is going that deep into the user info that is not good. So how do i change the language in the UI.

regards Nick

Once upon a time, Mozilla was the first. Then Mozilla got stupid and Netscape was born. Now Mozilla/Firefox is doing it again. No Java? Really?

I have read almost all of the responses from the "top" contributors on this forum. Do you guys think most of us are stupid, some of us are stupid, or most of us are idiots? You have zero proof that what you are saying is fact. You need to just admit you don't want to support Java plug-ins. A lot of programming done in the most popular programming language on this planet is JAVA. Browsers are not just for cruising the internet.

Java wasn't a problem before but now it is? What changed?

I have read several of the suggested articles on how to fix slowness. I found them confusing. I am fearful of resetting FF without knowing what it is going to do. I may have add-ins that I don't know about or have forgotten about, but if deleted would cause some things to fail. Is there a tutorial that will show me what the reset/refresh procedure is going to do before it does it and give me the option of bypassing an action? A really good tutorial would walk me through, step by step, finding out what I have installed so I can decide which pieces I need to keep. It would also do a backup/checkpoint so I can go back if I find that something that I need is broken.

Is there anything like that available?

Thanks

Hello, How to push update to latest version (44.1 -> 5.0), not version by version update (44.0, 44.1, 44.2, ..... - >52.0)?

The problem is in that that we have created version 44 in our software catalog, if user requests to install application for his PC, then he get version 44, then 44.1, 44.2. and only then latest version 52.

How we can configure Firefox so that if users installs version 44, update is pushed to latest version by one application restart, update ? Version numbers are only for example.


We can

I've been using Password Exporter by Justin Scott for some years now, and with the release of Quantum is completely breaks the addon. I don't know if Justin is working on it anymore, but there's been no sign of any update or update info from him.

I actually downgraded back to the last known version that worked with his addon because there's nothing like it anywhere (that I can find) on the addon marketplace. Same goes for a few of my other addons, but those are not as detrimental as the Password Exporter. The level of usefulness and intuitiveness has not been matched by anything else. So while I hope that Justin does update it, I am not holding my breath.

Does anyone know of a alternative to this addon that works with Quantum?

Thanks!
