Using Windows 11. I'm using a free Proton VPN. My Firefox version is 103.02. I want to be able to continue to use the VPN when using Firefox to check my gmail accounts. If I disconnect the VPN, Firefox lets me access my mail site without a problem. When I use the VPN connected, I'm getting a PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

Is there a way to keep the VPN on and connect with no error? Is there a Firefox setting I can change? I don't have proxy selected in Win 11 connections. Cache is cleared.

this has been a problem that a lot of us Facebook and Firefox user have and are facing and yet to be fixed. I have seen some people stare they're going to other browsers I do not want to do that but it is getting to the point where i may need to. It does not do this on Chrome or edge, Now it is said that it may be the extensions well I have disabled or turned them off and still doing it . Please could someone check into it was supposed to be resolved in newest version but it is not

I need some things to look at. Debian 11.4 Bullseye 16 CPU 72GB I just got the Mate desktop working. Thought I'd find a cool wallpaper. Site said it needed to load an extension. I tried to escape but now my firefox fails to load even in troubleshoot mode. It builds the window frame I can almost touch the menu and gone.

Checked .mozilla/firefox/Crash Reports/ and it's empty checked .mozilla/extensions/ and it's emtpy Got an install time InstallTime20220718130424

as I click on Firefox Icon in menu the screen pops alert that says: "Firefox closed unexpectedly while starting....try to resolve the problem in troubleshooting in SafeMode."

tailing syslog: tail -f /var/log/syslog gives this clue: oom-kill:constraint=CONTRAINT_NONE, task=firefox-esr total-vm:672432kb Kernel Out Of Memory killed process pgtables:840kb oom-score_addj:0

I can add more detail if I know where to look. OOM with 72GB ?

All of a sudden most websites won’t open and I am getting the error message “Your connection to this site is not secure”. I am able to open Google.com and all of it’s links, as well as Yahoo.com. I am also able to open various random websites, but not all. I can open apple.com, but not support.apple.com.

When I click on the information provided for sites I can not open I see two things: 1) Verified by: Not specified 2) Technical details: Connection not encrypted

When I open Google for example I see 1) Verified by: Google… 2) Technical details: Connection encrypted

Obviously support.apple.com and support.Firefox.com are verified and encrypted website, so the problem must be on my end.

I have tried many fixes including clearing out cache, web browsing, unplugging my computer and modem, full virus scan, offline webdefender scan, system restore (which didn’t work), changing the DNS to 8888 and 8844.

I am using a Dell Desktop with Windows 10. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thank you.

Recently I have noticed that my Firefox browsing keeps disappearing.

In my settings, I have configured Firefox to "Remember history" (see attached screen shot).

The history for my other browsers, e.g., Chrome are *not* disappearing, only for Firefox.

I have seen solution references to index.dat files, but I have found no *relevant* index.dat files on my computer's disk drives.

What steps can I carry out to retain my Firefox history?

Thank you

When I open Firefox after starting my computer, all of my tabs from the previous session are automatically restored, and they take several minutes to load. I don't have the "Open previous windows and tabs" setting enabled. Is there a way to stop Firefox from loading these tabs each time I open the browser?

I'm using Firefox 103 on KDE neon 5.25.

So I can't believe Firefox has been around this long and still hasn't made a tab preview like the one on the new google chrome update. I can't even find an add-on anywhere. So please devs make this a feature. I know that there is an option to see the preview of each tab in the windows taskbar but that is just messy when there are a lot of open tabs because you can't just click on the open window and jump right into you left off you have to look through each and every open tab to find the right one. IMO this seems like a great add-on considering other browsers already have their own version of this. Below is the Preview tab that firefox already has and it just sucks imo.

I've tried with Troubleshoot Mode, and clearing history (cache, cookies, site settings, offline website data). How can I find out what's blocking? The example is a Twitter post on Wed 08/17/2022.

when taking part in a VA video conference, I could get pictures but no sound. (other browsers - edge & chrome- gave me only sound and pictures). I get sound from videos, You Tube, Netflix, etc., but nothing when on the VA video conferencing site. I am using Windows 10 on an HP desktop computer. I even turned off my virus protection to make sure it was not interfering (suggested by VA video conferencing help contact) but that did not help either. Since VA is going to a lot of video conferencing this is creating a real problem. (Checking the settings for the webcam (Logi pro scan) all showed that it was functioning properly. Sound comes in on all other sites using Fire Fox.

Win 10laptop had Firefox installed and working. Suddenly stopped after some windows updates. I have Uninstalled several times, both vanilla and using IOBIT program. Deleted the program file folder, and the local apps profile. Won't start in safe mode either. I don't even see anything in task manager when clicking. No error messages.

However.....tried installing developer version and it works fine!

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

In the last year I have had more and more problems with Firefox. It runs when I don't have the browser activated, it slows things down and now it wont even start at all.

The constant updates always interrupt me when I am working on my computer as well.

So bottom line; what do I need to do in order to use the Firefox browser before I dump the program altogether.

When I enter YouTube and I try to see comments written to me, it says "'content filtering' has hidden the discussions on this channel". When I try to click on the button to cancel the filtering, it tells me that it cannot be canceled because the filtering is from the network administrator. "Content filtering Enabled by the network administrator to help filter videos that may contain adult content only." It blocks me from any discussion even if it doesn't contain adult content. I switch browsers, open Chrome, and there is no content filtering by the network administrator, but it does show me the discussion that Firefox blocked. Which means the ISP doesn't block me and neither does any other manager except the Firefox browser. I don't have another network administrator, I surf on a private network at home. You need to report the problem to Firefox and they will take care of it.

Thanks.

I am opening firefox with the -new-instance -private along with the -url with path to the document.

I want to open firefox in this specific instance using the "new window without toolbar" addon as it is ideal for this particular application.

My question is how do I default to this option for this particular application, while keeping firefox with my bookmark toolbar and other options as my default browser in general usage.
