I'd like to easily be able to suspend Firefox from constantly asking for my Primary Password. There are often times when I don't need to enable Firefox Password from filling in passwords and don't need to login to my account at any particular website, but want to lookup information. For example, I may want to see if an item is available on Amazon and what the options are without having to login to my account. But as soon as I go to Amazon -- and for every, single page I access while there -- the "Enter Primary Password" box pops up and I can't continue without clicking "cancel". If I enter my Primary Password just once it stops asking. But I'd prefer to be able to easily tell Firefox to not enable Firefox Password and ask for my Primary Password until I want it enabled; perhaps by having a toggle button in the menu bar? I see there's what sort of looks like a method for this if you search for "Firefox keeps asking for Primary Password", but it state that it applies when using AVG and another security software, but I'm not using either of those. Maybe it continues to ask after entering it when using one of these software? I tried it anyway and it didn't make any difference. Is there a way to do this? Thanks.

Hello, In my Firefox password manager (Lockwyse), I have the credentials of a valid twitter.com account of someone I don't know. It looks like a nice security hole. Am I seriously worried about the security of my own password? How and who should I inform Mozilla about this serious problem? Thank you in advance for your assistance ? Cordially.

I have been using the website URL: https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/ for several years.

I just got a new computer and downloaded Firefox to use as my preferred browser, but when I attempt to open the above website, I get the message Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

I cannot find any workaround which will let me access this site. I am NOT concerned about the site security as it is a UK GOV website. Microsoft Edge will open the website without any issue, why won't Firefox?

How do I get routine access to it through Firefox?

When I open my Yahoo browser I get a pop up asking for my "Primary password". I checked in the Task Manager and it is present as Firefox that when I end that task then the popup goes away. I am already signed in to my Firefox Acct. I screenshot the popup below. It will return several time even if I "X" out or hit cancel. There is no other information no matter where I click on that box. I do not put any passwords in the box for fear of scam/virus/spoof ETC.

When I attempt to login to a captcha protected account it won't stop with the verification. I have to answer the captcha picture puzzle 30 or more times. After this occurred on several different sites I finally tried Google. The captcha worked the first or second time.

What gives with this? I dislike using Google, but FF may leave me no choice.

Most sites make a lot of noise about browser.pagethumbnails.capturing_disabled - and they repeat just one after another that this should be set to "true" to prevent thumbnail storage. But when you look at the right source, like: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Preferences/Preference_reference/browser.pagethumbnails.capturing_disabled

true (default)

   The application creates screenshots of visited web pages.

false

   The application doesn't create screenshots of visited web pages. 

The name of the parameter is confusing. But it seems that it should be set to "false" to prevent thumbnail storage. And the right question should be about reading abilities ;) But I will ask another one - does Mozilla will try to conntact with those sites and say them that they are wrong? Have a nice day folks! :)

I am using the firefox version 17 and when i drag and drop an image on my website. It gives me the following error.

Unable to access local files due to browser security settings. To overcome this, follow these steps: (1) Enter "about:config" in the URL field; (2) Right click and select New->Boolean; (3) Enter "signed.applets.codebase_principal_support" (without the quotes) as a new preference name; (4) Click OK and try loading the file again. Or go to the homepage for a link to the tutorial on how to do it.

I have completed the above steps and it is still showing the same error message. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

So three years on we still appear to be waiting for an answer!

My FF17 still only has options for SSL3.0 and TLS1.0 so presumably the 'Bug' 565047 and 480514 are still in the process of being resolved?

The problem is in the meantime, is that the recently the PCI people started flagging up BEAST as a FAIL. Other assessors may have already been doing this since June 2012 or earlier, but ours has just started it since their last report. Organisations wishing to be compliant must remove or disable certain ciphers from the server, forcing the connecting browser to use RC4. (Some assessors will permit prioritising but ours will fail us and force us to appeal after every assessment). We know FF supports RC4 so that's no problem, but pressure is also mounting to ensure that only SSL3.0, and TLS1.1/.12 are enabled at the server to ensure the best security posture and full compliance. For example in Windows 2008RC2 this is neccessary in order to mitigate against BEAST and our understanding is that this is what the MS12-006 patch does.

This means that browser support for TLS1.1 and TLS1.2 is now essential rather than optional. In the current climate we are forced to seriously consider banning and removing browsers that do not support the latest TLS versions from our workstations as these are now being regarded as non-compliant with the latest security standards.

So will someone at Mozilla therefore please answer the question : WHEN will support for TLS1.1 and TLS1.2 be available please?

If it is already available (and we missed it) then how do we ensure it is enable please?

Thanks.
