HTTPS issue (caused by Firefox addon update?)

Q: HTTPS issue (caused by Firefox addon update?)

I've had a strange issue that may have been caused by upgrading to Noscript 5.1.6. I closed my Firefox earlier today and shortly afterwards re-opened it, with the notification that Noscript had updated. However I found that many other websites had become inaccessible. Paypal.com brought up a screen with a message like "found, return to gb/home", www.bbc.co.uk gave a "301 moved permanently" message, and many other websites only opened as blank pages. Closing and re-opening the browser several times did not fix the problem. My first suspicion was that Noscript's update had caused an issue, so I disabled it, which fixed the issue immediately. After re-enabling it there was still no problem.
 
In retrospect the URLs I was using were missing the "HTTPS" prefix that is automatically added (my link to "www.bbc.co.uk" ordinarily sends me to "https://www.bbc.co.uk/", "paypal.com" to "https://www.paypal.com/gb/home", etc), which makes me wonder if there was an issue with redirects.
Oddly, one website that loaded fine when all others I tried failed - https://www.redlettermedia.com/ - now returns a "Secure Connection Failed" message - "SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length." Notably, this also happens when I try and access it on my phone, outside of my home network.
 
I've run a scan with MBAM for good measure, which turned up nothing. The problem appears to be fixed apart from that one website; can anyone shed some light as to what may have happened and whether I need to be concerned? Is it possible that an issue with the redlettermedia.com website may have affected my computer?

Preferred Solution: HTTPS issue (caused by Firefox addon update?)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Have you updated to Firefox 57? According to the NoScript website it is still not compatible with 57.

Where's NoScript for Firefox 57 "Quantum"?

2017-11-14: We're working hard to make NoScript for Quantum available to you as soon as possible, definitely by the end of this week.
Please be patient: if you feel naked while you're waiting for the "brand new" NoScript, you can still use the "regular" NoScript 5.x (and all the other extensions of yours) on Firefox 52 ESR, which will receive security updates until June 2018. See you soon!
 
EDIT: Redlettermedia is not a secure site. I just went to it with no problem using Firefox 56 and NoScript enabled. I'm not
updating to 57 until NoScript is compatible. I did look at the scripting being blocked and didn't see anything malicious on
the redlettermedia.com home page.
My NoScript was updated 10 days ago to 5.1.5....you may be allowing their not ready for prime time beta releases.

I'm a newbie on this site so if this question has already been asked, then apologies.
I recently updated Firefox (April 12, 45.0.2) which has long been my preferred browser, and since then I am getting locked out of all sorts of sites I would normally visit. I can no longer play youtube music, just get a black screen that eventually stops on an error message. I can no longer access MSN games on line and some sites are coming up with a security warning that seems to be related to site certificates being incorrectly configured. On some of these, there is an option to allow, and some will open, but others just revert to a white window with an indexed list in blue, none of which help as they wont open.
I checked with my AV provider and they ran a diagnostic on their software, Eset security 9, ( updated this at the same time) and it all checks out. So the problem appears to be Firefox. I can get into all things with either IE or Chrome, but they're not preferred.
Anybody got a probable cause? I'm not particularly au fait with Win 7 BTW. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling on May 6 which is now Firefox 46.0.1 but no change.

There is a specific website my mother frequents for a game called Robo Runner at http://www.eyeplaygames.com. However, since she updated Firefox, the game boards load only partially. Also, it does not display proper font colors - robot names and game names are supposed to be certain colors depending on their current status.I tried updating all of our plugins, reinstalling Firefox, and installing an earlier version. However, I'm a bit confused because my mother says she stopped using IE awhile ago because it started doing the same thing.I have been unable to find anything on the game website about this problem. The reason I'm posting it here is because perhaps there's a setting somewhere or something I'm overlooking, and that this issue is more universal than simply one website and someone may have insight on it.On other computers the site loads fine. Anyone got any ideas?

I ran the lastest Windows updates on my PC and when it rebooted it was stuck on the "Configuring Windows do Not Shut Down" screen for hours. Finally, I shut down and the PC would not start up. I tried to do a system restore to before the Windows update, and got errors. However, the PC did start up (and actually said the restore worked), but not everything is functioning correctly on the PC (there is no HDMI sound for example and Google Chrome Updater will not connect to the internet).

I tried to do another system restore from within Windows and got the error message in the attached screen shot.

Does anyone know how to get system restore to start working again?

I'm honestly not sure if this is more a windows XP issue or more a network issue. My apologies in advance if I've mis-estimated.

I run XP corporate on a Sony VIAO laptop. This morning I finished downloading and installing yesterday's updates. Upon rebooting I was met with two error messages:

(1) Windows told me I had no firewall turned on (something I'd long since dealt with). I use ESET and had long since told XP to stop bugging me about this.

(2) ESET told me that "an error occured while starting services. Analysis of application protocols (POP3, HTTP) will not function."

Along with these errors, I find that I can't get on the internet (though the wireless connection to my router is still working fine). I can only assume that the Windows update caused this problem, but I'm not sure what the problem is.

I assume Windows' update caused the error, since I had nothing like this going on before and the problem started exactly when the update installed. Any help would be much appreciated.

(I looked at services to see if anything had been disabled that shouldn't be. I didn't spot anything. I also re-installed my wireless driver just in case. No dice.)

Q: What is the difference between Full version and LE?

A: Technically, the full version utilizes a RichEdit control whereas LE (Light Edition) uses the older but speedier Edit control (as does metapad 1.x). LE is somewhat quicker under NT when loading large files but it does not have the following features:

* no file size limit on Win9X
* multiple undo/redo
* show hyperlinks option
* drag & drop text editing
* insert/overwrite mode

Just installed the IE Tab AddOn extension to my Firefox v3.5.3 and it works just as advertised. Created Bookmarks in my Roboform login list for both Win Update and Win Catalog sites. FF goes there and does its thing.

One question... When I did the search for the IE Tab addon, there was another addon called Coral IE Tab. It claims to be an "enhanced version of IE Tab". The narrative goes on the say it "Uses the embedded IE Engine" and "supports AdBlock Plus" (which I have).

BTW... AdBlock Plus seems to work just fine with IE Tab AddOn.

My question is this... Is there any advantage to using this addon over what I have already installed? If so, does it work in addition to the IE Tab addon or replace it?

A:WShowPassword Firefox Addon

Thanks for sharing, however I cannot trust external addons/extensions, unless developed by Mozilla themselves. Are there any alternates to this add-on?

This feature is available on Windows 8, 8.1 and 10, including Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7.




The Fermata eye like symbol ( the password reveal button ) have been introduced in Windows 8 . I believe this feature is mainly for the users who are using the Windows Tablets . It is quite difficult to retype to whole password if he made a mistake . So that I believe it should be mainly for the Windows 8 tablet users . Using the feature a user wouldn't have to delete the entire password and start all over again if he believes that he has made a mistake
However, some desktop and laptop users might feel that this feature can come in the way of their security and in that case disabling it altogether would be the best option.Click to expand...

Your Firefox extension are kept in your profile folder, located at C:\ Documents and Settings \ "your user name" \ Application Data \ Mozilla \ Firefox \ ProfilesThis folder is not removed when you uninstall Firefox from Add/Remove. This folder retains all of your previous settings, and will re-apply them to your new install, if it's not deleted.That's why, when you install a new version of Firefox, your previous settings, bookmarks, passwords, etc., all remain the same.

What is VTzilla?

VTzilla is a Mozilla Firefox browser plugin that simplifies the process of scanning Internet resources with VirusTotal. It allows you to download files directly with VirusTotal's web application prior to storing them in your PC. Moreover, it will not only scan files, but also URLs.
The scanning options are embedded in Firefox's context menu and download dialog, making the analysis process as easy as clicking a single button.

What are we interested in?

The main purpose of VTzilla is to help the community in securing their systems. Having said this, if we can also collect interesting data to analyse at the same time we help the community even better.
We are interested in malware obviously, so if you come across any malicious file do not hesitate to scan it with VTzilla. Additionally, thanks to VirusTotal's URL scan service we hope that users will be willing to send us phishing and any other fraud/ecrime related sites. Why? Because hopefully these sites will end up being processed by the URL analysis tools integrated in VirusTotal and will improve their efficiency, and thus end-user protection.


VirusTotal - Free Online Virus, Malware and URL Scanner - Browser Addons

A:VTzilla - The VirusTotal addon for Firefox

An alternative is the Team Cymru MHR 1.1 Firefox extension. The purpose of the extension is to check downloaded files against multiple anti-virus and anti-malware products from the Firefox download window. All you need do is click "Check MHR" shown under the time in the download window:

Note: Neither this nor the VTzilla extension replace your antivirus software. Rather, consider the extension a supplement. With the Team Cymru MHR Firefox extension, in the event the download is identified as malware, it can be deleted rather than installed.

A:Need Help with Removing ICQ Toolbar addon in Firefox

Hi coalgiver,

If you installed the ICQ toolbar as an extension, try installing it again then close and re-open Firefox and you should be able to uninstall it.

If it was installed via another program installation (most freebie prog's now include toolbar's as extra's from sponsors, Ask, Yahoo etc) open the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel and uninstall it from there. If it doesn't appear in there, go to the ICQ Toolbar folder in your Program Files and double click the uninstall.exe (sometimes uninstall000.exe) file to begin the process. If you're worried about which file to double click, post back with a list and we'll instruct you from there.

Window 7 x64 pc with Avast virus
 
Notice the issue yesterday, not sure how long it might have been affecting Firefox.
 
Yesterday, Avast could no longer access server to update.  Went to Avast website to manually download virus file.  Said it was up to date.  After two days, I highly doubt it is still upto date.  Tried downloading a fresh copy of the software and reinstalling.  No change.
 
Now I just noticed Firefox also can not access anything and when I try to update it, it says it is up to date.  I have version 22.00, not the current 23.  Don't know how long it has been blocked from updating.  Didn't find anything to improve the problem in thier troubled shooting area.  Tried downloading new copy of Firefox..... and download failed.
 
Two days ago, I downloaded a Windows update, classified as Critical.
 
I do have another computer running on the same internet connection.  It appears to be fine and has to current Firefox version.
 
Is this a virus or a result of the Window's update?
 
Thanks for your help!

A:Avast and Firefox update blocked, virus or Window Update issue?

I forgot to say, Internet Explorer and other programs are working just fine.  No issues accessing anything on the internet.  The only problems,  appear to be Firefox and Avast unable to connect to server.
 
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hello folks, I have been using Seven since 7000. I now have 7127.
My problem is with Firefox xpi extensions.
I have read in the past that this is a known issue with installing xpi, but do you think I can find it now

My Firefox addon extensions do not work, nor do they uninstall/reinstall.
What do I need to tweak, please...

I would think some smart computer geek (and I use that term as an accolade) could
come up with a Firefox Add-On that could automatically, or selectively as desired,
be embedded in or attached to emails irregardless of browser that would be activated
upon opening and send notification to the sender that it has been opened.

If legal constraints require, it could maybe ask for permission to send notification,
but that kind of nullifies lots of the reasons for something like that in the first place.

All of the sudden Firefox (latest) doesn't play flash videos. I uninstalled Adobe Flash addon and opened up a youtube video, it gives me the "need flash addon" which I downloaded and reinstalled. When I open up firefox and open up a video it doesn't say or display anything and status in lower left is "Done". Uninstalling/Reinstalling Flash and Firefox does nothing. Internet Explorer runs fine without any problems.

OS is Vista Ultimate 64-bit.

I have also cleared all cache files, registry entries, installation folders and downloaded new copies of Firefox and Flash, etc...Nothing changes.

Seems like Firefox fails with a different issue every week or so and I have to restore windows to a restore point from the day before and everything is fine.

Anyone else have problems with Firefox on Vista 64?

Generally Firefox Statusbar AddOn works quite well. The only annoying behavior I've found so far is, if you try to Resume a partial download, and the WiFi you are using at the moment prevents the download, the Resume choice is removed and the status is changed to Failed.

The behavior should be to notify the user the download cannot commence. Ask the user what to do.. such as maintain the status until such time as a connection can be made on an unblocked WiFi network.

My main hassle is Public Library blocking downloads, even those such as Sourceforge.net that are obviously free. It's a pita to download over a GB only to have to start from scratch because some WiFi network decided you shouldn't be downloading, citing no specific criteria. Either you get a block notice, such as possible copyright infringement(which is usually false since you are on Softpedia or some other) or it just hangs.

Anyway Download Statusbar author. Nice AddOn but please tweak it. If anyone knows a work-around that would be cool too.

I set all downloads to go to another disk so even partial files stay there until download is finished nothing can block them then. Download finishes even after power off. I also use that addon.

A couple of months ago, I was having problems with slow Firefox performance, so I refreshed Firefox, which created a new profile from scratch. My problems cleared up. I subsequently installed two addons (AdBlock Plus and Flashblock), with no performance issues resultingFast forward to last night. I click on a bookmark for Craigslist, and up pops a new tab displaying a page from the Flash and Video Download addon (http://fnvfox.appspot.com/thankyou.html). I quickly closed it. I go back to browse and I notice new icons on the Firefox toolbar. Then I notice they're not really new: they are icons for the addons that I had prior to refreshing Firefox a couple of months ago. I open up Addons Manager, and they're all back--one of them being the Flash and Video downloader (which shows its last update as October 30, 2015, the night this occurred). Then I clicked on a link to a website, and Firefox kept popping up prompts asking me if I wanted to accept cookies for the site--which was what I had configured Firefox to do before I refreshed it, but not after. I went to look at my profile. I had a shortcut to the new profile created when I refreshed; the shortcut's target was gone. The profile no longer exists.I've searched the web, but can find no similar reports, although I have seen reports of Flash and Video Downloader opening a new Firefox tab on its own, without being asked. I ran Malwarebytes and a full system virus scan with Avast, and they found nothing unusual. There is obviousl... Read more

Good People,
I recently completely removed Firefox and then reinstalled same.

Unfortunately, I've forgotten the name of the add-on which will automatically feed the next page when I get to the bottom of a list of items, such as in a google search, which goes one for pages.

Anyone know the name of same?

It appears to work until you go to edit the saved snippet, but comes up with cannot find
c:/users/OEM/Documents/My%20Snippets/blahblah.htm make sure the path or address is correct

It could be a permissions error? would love to get it back up and working if anyone can explain?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I would guess you'd need to redownload from the developers site a compatible version designed for win-7 ?
What os did you upgrade from x-p ?
Cheers.

Hi guys, i encountered a problem the other day with a previous wireless card made by ADDON. After these problems which included random lag spikes while gaming, losing connection randomly I decided to buy another card. First thing I did was uninstall the drivers for the previous card and took out the device, I then seated the new wireless card and installed the drivers. It didn't work. I've been hunting around google for a couple days and i cant find anything, I've re-seated the device, used another wireless card but the same model and re-installed the drivers. In device manager it doesn't come up with the model of the device but just saying "Network Device", I go to the properties of the Network Device and it comes up with the error code 18. I've tried a registry cleaner but still to no avail. I'm not ready to install a new version of windows even though I am running Vista which probably is the problem. If i try to use windows to install the new drivers it says a problem has occurred while trying to install this device, and a error under it saying "a device attached to the system is not working" but the card im using now does work in a other pc. Anyone who could shed some light on this please do, It's driving me nuts and i have no idea what the problem is.

Thanks,
Mitch
