    I'm getting this... more frequently than I'd like (both on Win 10 and Ubuntu)

    "Network Protocol Error
    An error occurred during a connection to https://www.tenforums.com
    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the network protocol was detected.
    Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem."

    It's not specific to this forum..just posted it as it happened just now... haven't tried another browser ...what protocol am I supposed to be looking at?

    FF 65.0 disabled my British English dictionary with no way to re-enable it (was it too old?). I had to remove it and get another one to get my spell checking to work again.
    Just had this again on another machine. Really annoying that the update gives no warning of this before or after installing. The only 'notification' is that spelling stops working. Not only that, but Add-ons doesn't automatically tell you that a compatible update is available....

    ...you have to manually check for update before it shows up.

    Surely it would have been easy to provide some notification with the update?

    I miss the add on "Classic Bookmarks" that let me keep IE bookmarks and FF bookmarks the same.

    anyone know of a seamless substitute?

    If you download Firefox from the Mozilla ftp you get the option to select a language before you download.

    This was a clean install of Windows on a new machine, so I downloaded and installed from https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/new/ and had a working UK English language spell check in FF 64.

    It was Firefox's own UPDATE to 65 that disabled the English language pack (apparently the 64 dictionaries are not compatible with 65). What annoys me is that while FF said there was an update, when I let it FF update itself there was absolutely no warning that the language pack would be disabled and nothing to tell me I had to install a 65 version if I wanted the spell checking to continue working. I had to find that out for myself....
