Version 76 has serious problems in Mac Mojave and Catalina. I'm thinking of moving to another browser if the problems aren't fixed in a few weeks. In Mac Mojave, the UI sometimes blinks and sometimes becomes black. I had to restart the app but it happened quite frequently. After updating to Catalina, all shortcuts are unusable, most right click menus are blank and even the menu bar is blank. When hovering the mouse over the menu bar, nothing displays, just blank menus. Sometimes, the app starts up with default UI although I customised it a bit. In those cases, I had to close the tab or even restart the app.

I'm getting disappointed and perhaps I'll move to another browser soon.

Since the latest updates, I can't access at least two sites I need to go to daily. (chase.com and constantcontact.com) All other sites open fine and those two open in Chrome. I read that this is a known issue with the update. I don't understand the fixes. I just need things to work!

I have a mac with a free Avaast app running. Not aware of any firewalls.

Error says: "The connection has timed out" in both cases.

Hi – I recently restarted my browser and realized that I couldn't connect to any https sites – each attempt would throw a "the connection was reset" error.

I've changed my network settings from DNS-over-HTTPS to No Proxy and sites are now loading correctly.

I'd certainly like to use DNS-over-HTTPS if possible for the greater security, so I'd like to know what's causing the problem.

a. Is it just because I'm in Canada that DNS-over-HTTPS is throwing these errors? (Note: I was living in the US until recently) b. Are there some other proxy or ISP settings that might be causing the problem? c. Or should I be considering whether my connection has an actual security concern?

Thanks.

I use Firefox as my primary browser on my Mac Book. I have never changed my default browser from Google and if I go into preferences it says my default browser is still Google. Despite this, about 2 weeks ago all my searches started being in Yahoo instead of Google and it is getting really annoying now. I can't change it to any other browsers or back to Google, it's just stuck on Yahoo.

I can't play anything on Bandcamp. I don't know if this is a Firefox problem or an OSX problem or a Bandcamp problem, but hoped it might ring bells with someone here. Been going on for a good couple of months (but I was away for a chunk of that so just getting back to it now). Bandcamp is the best of the streaming services and the fairest to musicians, so it deeply bothers me I can't play anything on it. I just click play, the pending wheel goes round as it fails to play track after track, and then it stops. I had a look on their help but no help there (at the time). I'm running Mojave (OS 10.14.16) on a 2018 mac mini.

Dear community,

I would like to bring up a topic that is DRIVING ME CRAZY. I am developer and frequently access my own services on unsecured http servers for testing. Spin up a new docker container, test it, tear it down. No SSL required, no time to mess with encryption.

But if you type in https just a single time for your http server, you are f*#&ed. Sorry for the wording, but this is how it is. You think "OH NO, WHAT DID I DO? NOT AGAIN!!!" Because it is just impossible to access the service with http in the future, Firefox has it locked to SSL (Domain and Port). But of course there is no SSL so it will NEVER work.

Latest example: JetBrains TeamCity. They have a simple Docker container I want to access with Firefox. I spin it up, connect with Firefox with http and it immediately tells me "Secure Connection Failed". WHAT? WHY? I typed http. Why secure? Why can't I simply connect? Using curl on CLI just gives me a beautiful HTML response.

I understand that for the majority of users SSL is a good thing. But shouldn't there at least be an OPTION to disable all this enforced SSL usage? My beloved Firefox is my everyday productivity killer. It makes me sad.

I'm having an issue with Firefox because I want to keep the containers opening on the same website after I click it from a different website but for whatever reason Firefox seems to keep forgetting and asking me again despite the fact that I click the button that says remember my choice.

I wonder if this has something to do with my cookie settings but I'm not sure I'm currently confused how to manage those like if I should just allow cookies per session in Firefox or allow them entirely I mean I'm thinking that with the containers since I have everything isolated individually (That took forever really need an option for that Mozilla) I don't need to worry about the effects of cookies anymore is this correct?

Also would there be a way to even keep cookies but just stop the login information from being saved on the site? Because with me using containers now I think that's my biggest issue from what I think I understand at least.

TL;DR - I typed into my "search the web" bar on my start/default Firefox tab and was taken to Startpage.com - English. I never installed this.

Today, after checking email and finding several suspicious/scam emails (I NEVER click on links in emails) I was surprised to find that when I went to search for something using Firefox I was taken to Startpage.com - English (this is how it is listed in my preferences.

I have no idea how it was installed but I was surprised because of all the protections that Firefox offers.

Anyone had any experience with this?

I am creating a policies.json file to block all Add ons except ones specified specifically.

I have figured out how to do this for normal extensions, but I have run into issues when applying the same principle to themes. What am I doing wrong? Here is my sample code that works to allow the ublock add on, no problem, but it is not working to allow the matte-black-red theme:

Why does Firefox keep changing my default search engine to Yahoo? I only want to use Google. I go into the preferences, I delete "BrowserDefault," and have it so only Google is shown as a search engine (see screenshot) and everything works fine. But a day or two later--and this has happened a dozen times now--the "BrowserDefault" is back and Yahoo is once again my default search engine. This happens over and over and over again, and I just want Yahoo deleted and gone forever.

Why is Firefox making these changes without my permission?
