    All of a sudden, after a update of firefox, I get "this connection is untrusted" for Facebook, no matter if I use http: or https:, WHY? Here are all the details of the error message:

    This connection is Untrusted

    You asked Firefox to connect safely to, but we cannot confirm that your connection is secure.

    What should I do?

    If you normally connect to this site without problems, this error can mean that someone is trying to impersonate the identity of the site, and you should not continue.

    This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HST) to specify that Firefox didn't connect safely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate. uses an invalid security certificate.

    The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown.

    (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

    (Also included a screenshot).

    COR - el said

    You can check the date and time and time zone in the clock on your computer: (double) click on the clock icon in the Windows taskbar.

    You can retrieve the certificate and check details such as WHO issued the certificates and the expiration dates of certificates.

    • Let Firefox recover the certificate: "Add Exception"-> "get certificate".
    • Click on the button "View" and inspect the certificate and the Coachman, who is the issuer.

    You can see more details like the intermediate certificates that are used in the Details tab.

    If you cannot inspect the certificate by "I understand the risks", then try this:

    Open the chrome URI by pasting or typing this URI in the address bar to open the window "Add the Security Exception" and to check the certificate:

  • All of a sudden I can't copy and paste copy/cut/paste is not available in Mozillia firefox. Never seen that before

    I have never seen this before when I try to copy and paste, I get a
    ' Copy/cut/paste is not available in Mozilla and firefox. Do you want more information about this issue? "
    I copied and pasted hundreds of times before with Mozilla and firefox. This just happened all of a sudden.
    When I go to find more information on this issue, it gives a long explanation I can't follow.
    That's happened?

    When you click the link, the page immediately said you that you can not copy, or which occurs as soon as you click on copy the location of the link?

    If it immediately, you can pass a parameter in Firefox that should prevent the normal context menu blocking sites. Here's how you would do that:

    (1) in a new tab, type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press ENTER. Click on the button promising to be careful.

    (2) in the search above the list box, type or paste the context and make a pause so that the list is filtered

    (3) double-click the preference dom.event.contextmenu.enabled from true to false.

    This setting has a complication: right-click on Google Maps and other sites that have their own menu, menu Firefox then crashes the site menu. To clear the menu of Firefox so you can access the site button menu tap ESC or the ALT key once (but sometimes Esc deletes both).

    Thank you!

    Do you have the same two tabs when you launch a new window (Ctrl + n) or only at startup?

    You can check your extensions in case something snuck in. You can view and clear the page modules. Either:

    • Command + shift + a
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then, when in doubt, turn off.

    Typically, a link will appear above at least an extension disabled to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links in the last step.

  • Impossible to use twitter all of a sudden using Firefox 17

    Normally, I use twitter without problem with Firefox. But now all of a sudden he log and takes me to the pages, but does not allow me to post tweets, respond to others, or retweet or close the session or send direct messages. So basically I can't do anything unless I use internet explore, where it seems to work. I don't want to use IE or I wouldn't get Firefox! It is not my twitter account, because the same thing happens on other accounts connected on this computer. I tried to download a new version of firefox, delete all cookies from twitter and everything else. My account and firefox work on 'Tweetdeck' site but not the actual twitter site. Can I do because you can't email twitter (well, I don't have an e-mail address that works for them!)

    Firefox crashes on opening a few seconds. That started everything suddenly a few weeks ago, and despite several attempts to every day, I still cannot load firefox application. It crashes immediately on startup every time anything and journalist accident happens. I studied all the articles and followed their suggestions. I installed the latest version of firefox and still get the same results. I can't even open firefox in safe mode.

    Heather, not sure I can help, I'm not a Mac user, but I'll have a look at the crashIDs that you provided.


    There are very few reports recent crash with this signature, they could even be your plant. If you follow the suggestions in the article I linked above there is not much that can be done easily. You should try discount the possibility that the cause is malware by scanning with several updated tools.

    Malware controls
    Have you seen and followed the advice

    Clean reinstall it
    If you find no malware, it can be interesting to try a new re - install and a clean profile, none of them are simple and must be done with care, so first try malware scans, those who will take a while to sort.

    Rather a last resort: fill out a bug report

    If you are ready to try to answer the inevitable questions and have an email account anonymous, that you can use for recording, you can follow the link from the report above and click on 'report' to create a bug report on the crash.
