I tried to open Firefox yesterday and got the following error message:

I uninstalled Firefox thinking that reinstalling would fix the problem but when I attempted to reinstall Firefox I got the same error message.

This is on a Windows 10 64bit machine.

Hello,

I have a trouble with font rendering on one specific website - https://www.checkpoint.com.

Text on this site looks quite ugly (see font01.png).

But if I open "Web Developer" -> "Inspector" -> "Fonts" -> "All fonts on page", then I can see the text renderred correctly in the preview field (see font02.png).

So text uses "DIN WXX Regular" font, but I do not understand, why Firefox cannot render it on the web page in the same manner as in the Developer tools?

Any clue how to fix it?

Browser: Firefox 68.2.0esr (64-bit) OS: Debian Bullseye

Hi,

after I received the 'Firefox appears to be slow' message for a couple of times in a row I decided to use the 'clean install' option that it (the browser) offers. I was under the impression that you could choose what to clean and what to keep, but apparently I was wrong. I now have a clean install and all, but everything is reset - back to default.

I do have the old files on my desktop and tried to import them like mentioned here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1212433 But it didn't work at all. And to be honest ... I don't remember all of my passwords, which is what I truly need from my old files.

When I am taken to a log in page or an account page on several completely different websites, I can see random peoples personal information like their full names, email addresses and phone numbers. When I go to one website, it automatically logs in to someone else's account and I have no idea who the person is. each time I click on the link, it brings up a new random person's account and info. It's not just happening on one website. I have no idea how this is happening and I worry that my account information is popping up on other peoples screens just like theirs is popping up on mine. I don't even know who to contact to try to resolve the problem. I even tried to call the Federal Trade Commision, but they didn't seem to care or want to help.

The issue is that Firefox is caching security certificates rather than loading them fresh.

This doesn't become an issue until the cached security certificate expires, then the user faces the "this website is not secure" warning page. The user tries to reload the page multiple times and continues to get the same warning page, then they call me in a panic and say "my website is not loading because it is not secure!"

The solution is Ctrl+F5 and voila the website loads without issue.

However, this is definitely an "issue" and the issue isn't with the website or the lack of knowledge of the end user. End users should not need to know how to refresh their local cache of a website to resolve a security certificate expiring when it has already been renewed. Firefox should by default check for a new security certificate when the cached version has expired or at least that is what would appear to be the logical progression of local caching.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a way to report this issue to Firefox developers...so I am reporting it here in hopes that someone in the community has the ear of the development team and can point out this issue.

Thanks, Dr. Pat

Every time I open Firefox it brings up a screen as if I am a brand new user starting out for the very first time. The disk image in my downloads folder has long since been deleted, so I'm pretty sure it's not running from that. I went and looked at "application binary" and it gave me a headache, plus there was no indication in the prior "support" replies of what the changes I might or might not observe therein would mean, so I was unmotivated to keep turning Firefox off and on and then checking to see if any of the characters in the very long text string had changed. I seem to have about 10 profiles, none of which have been created by me on purpose. I tried opening a couple of them, and got messages about various updates Firefox wanted to perform, but none of the opening screens had my information loaded. I've just lost a half hour of my life down this rathole this morning, and I still haven't gotten around to completing the search which was the reason I opened Firefox this morning in the first place. Imma have to go back and use Safari I guess, since Safari isn't suffering from "Susan Amnesia"

I would like to know if there was some kind of maintenance work yesterday or some issue from firefox about it otherwise i will start suspect i'm hacked.. thank you all very much for any help kind regards Sriel

First, I just had a major system crash, had to re-install Linux Mint and through my own stupidity, relied on the wrong backups for my firefox configuration. So I lost my Firefox 52 install with all of my extensions (that still worked). Now, I'm running v. 57 Quantum, and a few things aren't working correctly.

First, the MAJOR problem: when I open a link from a bookmark, it's clobbering an existing tab that I was using (that's why it was open, obviously). That is completely unsat and can not be allowed to continue. How do I correct this? I can't find the option under settings-->tabs to fix this problem.

Second issue (major annoyance): I can no longer create a bookmark directly in a bookmark folder on the bookmark toolbar. I used to be able to open that bookmark folder, and the first option was to bookmark the currently open tab. That option has vanished, and i use that all the time. How do I restore that?

Actually, one more issue: I have two tabs that are pinned and are supposed to be protected (i.e., nothing can clobber them, and I can't close them without deliberately turning the protection off (context menu right-clicking on tab). I need that back, because for some reason, firefox thinks it's ok to open a bookmark in those tabs, too, when it most definitely is NOT ok.

Hello! Plz help me out with this issu that's been haunting me for two years. I know something is wrong but after I've been searching every where I still don't know how I can prove someone (who I know) is hacking my accounts. And still i've no clue what all these means. When ever i try to report an issu no matter which web browser I use, all of a sudden the internet lose connection. Either im on my cellphone network, wifi at home or wifi at the library. No matter how many times I change privacy settings or delete certificates it always comes back. I can't even update windows or able to download prog. At first I bought Macafee and noticed the issu's still remaining, a few months later I bought MalwareBytes it worked first 30 minutes then back again as it was. I couldn't even access my cloud account on malwarebytes. Now the prob still remains and I'm not even able to access my G-account. I've changed password a hundred times everywhere.

There are several hundred browser websites that are opened after reboot with Mozilla Firefox reload.

How did this happen with a reload?

Is this a cache or cookie problem?

What was changed in the January Mozilla Firefox update?

Ccleaner requires that the browser is closed to clear cache and cookies.

If this were done the several hundred webpages would no longer reopen.

How can the Mozilla Firefox browser be modified so that it no longer displays Access Denied without losing the reload option for the hundreds of websites that are currently open?

(The browser typically has the default settings)


The Google Chrome and Internet Explorer browsers can open these websites without problems. Other end users opening the same websites with Mozilla Firefox did not see Access Denied.


For this problem please indicate:

What specifically happened with the January update that may have caused this problem? If it was not the January update what else could have caused this problem? How can the problem be fixed so that the webpages that are currently open can easily be reopened after a reboot with reload? What could have been done to prevent this Access denied problem?
