As mentioned above, since updating to 31.0 (reinstalling 30.0 fixes the problem) I am unable to access any new sites with untrusted certificates. I do not even get the option to trust/continue the site simply hangs and never loads.
Whenever I try to save a file on Firefox 30.0 the browser just crashes. Happens always as the \"save file as\"-window appears - making usage of Firefox impossible. I have to use Chrome to download files :(Any help The problem started just as I upgraded to Firefox 30.0.I have also tried to disable all plugins with no help - I'm using Mac OS X 10.9.2 and now FF 31.0
Whenever I choose to save file as it either crashes as soon as I click the save as button. Sometimes it asks whether I want to \"open with\" or \"save as\". Both of those end up with the same outcome - firefox crashes.
There is a file in your profile that remember the action preferences for certain files types within the browser. -US/kb/set-how-firefox-handles-different-fi...I believe this is also where the actions you mentioned that are crashing. Change what Firefox does when you click on or download a file
To do a quick experiment, you can save this file as a different name and a new one will be created.(filename: mimeTypes.rdf.old) Another easier way is to see if this also crashes in a new profile. All of which are covered in the -US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files
I think it has something to do with downloads folder() As Firefox also crashes when I try to change that folder in the settings. I use the default Downloads folder from OS X - Chrome and Safari use that same folder yet no crashing.

Due to the recent requirement from Apple that all programs mustbe notarized, geckodriver will not work on Catalina if you manuallydownload it through another notarized program, such as Firefox.
On the Windows front, Firefox has reverted to a previous behavioiur of downloading and trying to install the update from a non-privileged account. They had addressed this one in a previous release, but the old and wrong behaviour is back again.
Mozilla put of a lot of resources into creating a simple but effective UI aimed at making browsing quicker and easier. They created the tab structure that has been adopted by most other browsers. In recent years Mozilla has also focused on maximizing browsing area by simplifying toolbar controls to just a Firefox button (which contains settings and options) and back/forward buttons. The URL box features direct Google searching as well as an auto predict/history feature called Awesome Bar. On the right side of the URL box there are bookmarking, history and refresh buttons. To the right of the URL box is a search box which allows you to customize your search engine options. Outside of that a view button controls what you see below the URL. Next to that you have the download history and home buttons.
Firefox was the first browser to introduce a private browsing feature which allows you to use the internet more anonymously and securely. History, searches, passwords, downloads, cookies and cached content are all removed on shutdown. Minimizing the chances of another user stealing your identity or finding confidential information. Content security, anti-phishing technology and antivirus/antimalware integration ensures your browsing experience is as safe as possible.
