I am getting a stack of these errors preventing me from browsing to secure websites which includes google.com. Luckily my Chrome Browser and Edge Browser work fine. This is just another nail in the coffin for me to close the door on this browser which is just getting more and more unreliable.

For now, I have migrated to Chrome to allow me to go about my business of without Firefox telling me Google.com and many other secure sites are unsafe to browse!

Please bring back the override and accept the risk. I would rather have a warning and transfer risk to me rather than have a draconian rule telling me to use a different browser to resolve the issue. For now, you have forced my choice.

I cannot believe I am the only User to experience this issue. I do not want to delete all my cookies etc as I want to be selective in what I delete but again, this option has been taken away from me as well.

Looking forward to a solution.

Thanks.

My work computer is behind a firewall that is a forward and reverse proxy. Firefox crashes fairly frequently but my work computer is not using and will not be using the forward proxy; that is for the web server. Therefore the crash reports so not get submitted. There is an error message: "There was a problem submitting your report." Is there another way to submit them?

The file is removed. But with the next scan it shows up again.

Do you have any insight in this problem (false alarm, caused by some other program)?

I think the latest update, Firefox 105.01, screwed up my bookmarks. The Star on the address bar is blue for any site. Clicking on it does nothing. Will not edit, three bar menu will not edit, Control D will not edit.

There is now a bar underneath the address bar for a toolbar which was not there previously. I have never used or needed the bookmarks toolbar.

The Release notes for 105.01 (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/105.0.1/releasenotes/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-desktop&utm_campaign=about-dialog) appears as a bookmark in an unrelated folder. It will not delete.

I did look at the release notes right after the update. I closed that tab and did not bookmark it.

Cannot add new bookmarks.

I just discovered on the three bar menu under the Bookmarks menu that 105 shows as the last recent bookmark. Prior recent bookmarks will open up the "edit this bookmark." Only the save button is highlighted & clicking on that does nothing & the menu disappears.

Please fix. Thank you

How can I uninstall the latest Firefox Update? My version is 105.01. When I right click on the file menu, there is a blank menu, except for the "Bookmarks Menu" is the only thing. Also, the side menu on the right side is useless. None of the commands show except for a couple keyboard shortcuts. I tried changing themes and also changed to the default theme with no luck.

I rely heavily on the menus so i would love to roll back/uninstall the update. Thank you. nottyn

Firefox is crashing instantly on startup on Windows 11 22H2 x64-Architecture.

Things I've tries: Running in troubleshoot mode (Fails because Firefox doesn't even start) Reinstalling (Doesn't help event when doing a complete fresh install, deleting profiles, registry entries, and the program itself) Running windows in safe mode (Does work but I don't want to run in safe mode constantly) Adding a firewall exception (Doesn't work) Add an antivirus exception (Doesn't work)

I'm not getting any error reports or anything in general. I click the icon and it crashes.

I always use DuckDuckGo for my search engine, and remove all others. In FF version 105.0.1 the 'remove' button is disabled when Google is selected (see the screenshot). All prior versions of FF have allowed me to remove Google. This version 105.0.1 always shows 'Search with Google or enter address' in the address bar. Prior versions show 'Search with DuckDuckGo or enter address'. I have attached a screenshot of the two latest versions. I am running Debian 11.5, 5.10.0-18-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.140-1 (2022-09-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux.

Hello,

The past few weeks I have run into the issue where Soundcloud fails to load and returns an error. This is circumvented multiple ways. Either I open soundcloud in incognito mode and it works fine, or I clear the cache in normal mode. BUT in the second option soundcloud only works during the first visit.

I found a previous question asked here detailing the same exact issue but nobody found a solution that worked. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1346767

Other info I think would be useful: Soundcloud works on my laptop running the same exact profile for firefox. Hinting to me that something else on my computer is in the way.

Deleting all history, cookies, cache, extensions; has not helped

I have attached the images below just as the previous poster has. Including the console log filled with errors.

Hopefully someone can help with this headache!

When I go to settings/General/Default Zoom if I check zoom text only, on my facebook page why does it enlarges the the images & have no effect on the text? If I use the device settings +/- to reduce the the image I can get the font to a readable size but text on the left & right side of the page are still gone from the viewing area. Increasing obviously has no better results.

OK, I just tried unchecking zoom text only and it restored it to normal. I'm glad it's back to where was but the way it's listed in the setting seems confusing. If I check "zoom text only" that is the outcome I would expect,

When I first searched for help it returned 0 results, which is why I am posting it.

I am no longer able to log in to eBay using Firefox. I am using Firefox 78.15esu bc I have an older Mac that will only support up to Mac OSX 10.11. I was able to use eBay up until this morning when the site asked me to log in again... and verify that I am indeed a human through the hCaptcha checker. The checker cycles between identifying horses and lions... and every time, I seem to pass but then comes the message "Failed to pass Captcha, Please try again." I can access eBay using Safari and Chrome. Right before the failure today, the rendering of the eBay pages was odd... needed 3x the screen width to see the whole page. eBay says that the problem is on the Mozilla side of this issue... mostly because I can use a different browser without problem. I think I am in agreement with them. I don't really want to use a different browser but I will bc I like eBay, too. Please advise.
