When i click on the lock icon in the address bar, nothing happens (I would expect to see the encryption and certificate, but no widget opens). When I right-click into the page and select "View Page Info", "Security", "View Certificate", no certificate exists. Only generic info is shown (Servers+Authorities). Also an error is reported in the system log, confirming that no certificate exists: JavaScript error: chrome://browser/content/browser-siteIdentity.js, line 642: TypeError: issuerCert is undefined

Questions:

  • Why does Firefox show the lock icon while no certificate exists?
  • How does Firefox establish a secure connection without having a certificate? (From my understanding a certificate is needed for TLS to work.)

Version used: Firefox 78.12.0esr ('Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0'), no add-ons or plugins.

I have had enough of Firefox crashing. I do not mind having a slightly slower browser, I do mind it crashing.

I would like to know a SIMPLE way to stop automatic updates. I am actually using a Dutch version of Firefox, which in their attempt to make things easier for us has a different layout :-(

I am now extremely unhappy with Firefox. Since the upgrade before last it has done nothing but crash. If it is not possible this time to switch out the automatic updates - so that I can update to the previous version that (hopefully) no longer crashes, then I shall simply move to Chrome. Sorry.

I've seen this answer, but it doesn't fully fix the problem: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/951487

When I look at the address bar, I want to see the actual URI of the page I'm on, not some mangled version of it. In other words, I want to see the address in the form that is valid in an <a/> tag in XHTML.

Setting browser.urlbar.trimURLs to false fixes HALF of the problem, but not all of it. If I type in "http://example.com/filename%20with%20spaces.ext", I should see "http://example.com/filename%20with%20spaces.ext". However, I instead see "http://example.com/filename with spaces.ext". The "%20"s are converted into spaces, which are not valid in a real URI. How do I fix the address bar to show the real address of the page?

EDIT: It seems to me that if someone sets the trim setting to false, the URI should not be trimmed in ANY way. This includes the shortening of %20 to a space character. Is this a bug?

I wish I knew why Firefox has been crashing, but even in Safe Mode it dies. Here's what I do know:

1) Firefox was running fine in Fedora 17. Very rarely a crash even with 30 windows and 100+ tabs on multiple desktops.

2) I upgraded (as in: new install, but same home directory) from Fedora 17 to Fedora 20. No new hardware. Constant crashes - sometimes multiple times per hour. Sometimes multiple times per minute. Sometimes, crashing immediately on 'restart' of session while opening all my tabs back up & I have to do this a few times to get it working... usually, once it's up, it stays running for an hour or two.

3) Reduced windows to 12-15, and tabs to ~30. No effect.

4) Tried creating a new profile; tried different desktop environment (Cinnamon vs Gnome); tried uninstalling Flash plugin, other plugins, and then tried Safe Mode. Crash, crash crash.

I'm kind of at my wit's end. Fedora 20 is updated with latest packages. I am using the Nvidia proprietary drivers, but it crashes even in "Safe Mode", so hardware accel shouldn't be the cause.

I can run memtest86+ (which could take quite a while on a 16G RAM machine), but it would be quite a coincidence that I would have a memory failure right at the time I upgraded to Fedora 20, would it not?

On the new Firefox Quantum it appears the positions of the toolbars is fixed and the extension that used to allow this to change don't work. Particularly, the tabs are on top which is just hideously awful. I'm sure someone, somewhere likes it, but why are we all being forced to work in a specific way? Have you been brainwashed by Apple of Microsoft? Just look at how many people used the "Classic Theme Restorer" or "Tabs on Bottom" extensions to see how many people despise this awful layout you've imposed on us.

Please, fix this urgently and let users decide how their screen should be laid out, rather than imposing your will on us - especially since this is a cross platform browser so needs that level of flexibility.

Quantum seems to work great, but the ethos underpinning this design ("Work my way or not at all") it terrible and is a great way of alienating people.

This is not a simple question to ask and is not very easy to explain. But I shall try.

I am running a program suite called "Node-Red" on another machine. Access is done via the "web". (http). Usually you just enter the IP address and you are into the edit screen. This is obviously not a good idea on a machine exposed to the net. So, you activate security settings. (See a bit later)

I am using Firefox as my main browser and I have activated security settings in Node-Red. Subsequently I can't log in. BUT! Other browsers can. (From other people) I have tried it and seen it once work. Sorry but that's all I have at this time. The information attached about my system is unedited, because as I said: I don't know what is needed at this stage.

I can get the "name" entered, but every time I click on the Password field, the cursor jumps back to the name field.

(Documents for what I am doing) https://nodered.org/docs/security.html

See attached image for what I see in FF. Please forgive the red arrows. I was talking to the Node-Red people about it also. "Luckily" someone else is having problems when using FireFox. But they can if they use another browser - as stated.

I don't know exactly what information (at this time) is needed. Alas it may require someone in here to install Node-Red and try it them selves.

I also appreciate that is a big ask. But it would seem I am not the only person with this problem and someone else has recently posted that they have the same problem.


What further complicated me asking here is I have a couple of other programs installed for password management and I had to go through the process of eliminating them.


So I am now at the point where it is pointing to FireFox and it not playing the game.


Thanks in advance for any help in resolving the problem.

How do I totally remove Shockwave Flash 15.0.0152. Using Ubuntu 12.04, FF 32.0.3. It seems that I have Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.406 installed also...How ???. When I disable SWF 15.xxx, it disables SWF 11.xxx also.

This was happening before I installed Chrome browser. Chrome is the only way I can use my computer without throwing thing about the room.

When I enable SWF 11.xxx, and leave SWF 15.xxx disabled, SWF turns on SWF 15.xxx. Seems these two versions are screwing up everything on my computer. Can't watch videos, FF goes gray screen and stuck, for 30 seconds, then recovers, then goes gray screen, then a message comes up "bad script -- Stop?", etc.,etc.

Lately when I am using T-bird email the screen goes gray and stops working.

Please help

This issue started on August 19, 2021 with a profile I have been using for about 3 years. It persisted so I copied data and the chrome folder to a profile folder I created in October, 2020 but had not used. That was on August 22, 2021. It happened again with the 'new' profile. I quit several times earlier in the day (without clearing history, clearing and managing data) without issue. Sometimes the lock file is NOT deleted when Firefox quits.

At random times, for no apparent reason, Firefox just crashes and closes. I believe that this started with Firefox 40.x.

This can occur with Firefox simply sitting open, after minutes of no activity. Or it might happen as you are actively using it, either reading or typing...

To further complicate it, it NEVER is able to send a crash report. Checking "about:crashes" reports that no crash reports have been submitted.

OS: Puppy Linux, 5.28 lupusuper1. 3 Gigs of RAM.

First thought that it might be a RAM error -- roughly 12 hours of Memtest revealed no hardware issue...
