Since the last update, I am receiving the error message SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT when I access one website that I need to use as part of my work.

It is a trusted site that I have used for many years. The error message above displays and I get the option to retry which usually works, but I lose any content up to that point.

I have contacted the website owners as suggested and they say it is a Mozilla issue. I found a couple of suggestions to fix this on-line, but it did not work.

Can you help?

Firefox extentions often ask for the authorization "Access your data for all websites". The description is "The extension can read the content of any webpage you visit as well as the data you enter there, e.g. B. Usernames and Passwords." Does this mean e.g. if I type in my bank account in a firefox browser window or a password for any other pge that this extension has access to this input/password??? Martin

Hello all, I have been trying to download a video from YouTube. It runs for over an hour. When clicking on the grapes at the top RHS I get a load of options which I don't understand like wmv,mp4 etc. The times given go from a few Kb to 29Mb which is more realistic for what I want to download. I can't understand why you would only want to download a few Kb of a long video.

Of all the options given which one is the correct one to download what I am watching on the screen? I did get it to record for about 10 minutes then the whole computer just crashed out and shut down. Why? I have also downloaded the odd short video but there is no sound. Other times I get a download symbol in the downloads folder but it's empty and I can't delete it. To play videos I am using VLC.

I am not having much luck with this and I need help please. By the way, please keep replies basic as I am not a computer expert.

I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I have "restore last session" turned on, but I'd like Firefox wouldn't reopen my last visited site after I close the browser by closing the last tab. In other words: if I close the browser by a regular means (by clicking the rightmost upper X, or by right-clicking the taskbar and choosing close window) it goes to the last viewed site when I reopen the browser – and that's ok – but when I close the last tab and the browser closes, I don't want to see this site again when I reopen Firefox. Is there a way to achieve this? By the way, this is the standard behavior in Google Chrome.

From a Mozilla Support page, " Firefox lets you import login information from a .csv (##..##) file. This feature is available starting in Firefox Version 80." I have the .csv file for my logins and passwords thru the export function. I can not get the drop down menu where I can select the "import from a file..." per the instruction in the support example because I am running Version 79. Many attempts to update to the latest version stops at 79. My help page for version states that I have the latest update --v79. SO--- any suggestions as to were I can go to download version 80. I am trying to transfer my logins from laptop 1 to laptop 2 without going thru the laborious task of entering each login by hand.

I had setup file association for html files to Firefox on Windows 10. Recently, when I tried to run Belarc Advisor, I received an error message saying:

XULRunner Error: Platform version '78.0.2' is not compatible with minVersion <= 78.0.1 maxVersion <= 78.0.1

I am able to temporarily resolve it by changing html file associations to Chrome but it seems like the issue is with Firefox installations. I had previously inquired about issues with Firefox automatic updating and was advised to do a complete install. I did that and am at version 79.0 at this time.

The following post indicates that XULRunner errors are caused by "Incomplete Update: The main reason for this error is an incomplete installation/update of the Firefox browser. Firefox is usually set to automatically install updates and this process can be interrupted because of bad internet or a sudden system shutdown or an antivirus. Whenever this happens, your Firefox update doesn’t install completely and leaves you with an installation with a mixture of old and new updated files in the Firefox program folder."

Is their solution the best approach to cleaning up this update issue?

How do I set Firefox to block known trackers? How do I set Firefox to not block known trackers?

Is having Enhanced Tracking Protection ON the same thing as having Firefox set to block known trackers? So if I turn OFF Enhanced Tracking Protection, Firefox will no longer be set to block known trackers?

I had 3 windows with lots of tabs open and firefox only restored half of them. It's taking me a lot of time to go through history and finding the ones I lost and restoring them. I closed all firefox windows on exiting, verifying for each one to close the tabs, and yet this still happened when I restarted. I noticed afterwards that under options, under general, restore session was unclicked?? I have no recollection of doing that or any reason I would. I also saw that the sub box to warn me when closing tabs was also unclicked. Again, I would never unclick it and have no recollection or reason to have been fiddling with all that.

The only other thing is when first rebooting as I was going to history to restore sessions a Norton tab (I have Norton 360) popped up. I restored history and half of my stuff was gone. Does anyone have any idea of what's going on here?
