Under about:preferences#privacy choosing "Max Protection", choosing Max Protection, be it NextDNS or Cloudflare means my synced profile takes 30+ seconds to load/authenticate.

Windows 10 22H2 Pro on a domain.

On MacOS, near-zero delay.

Both go through same router.

This seems...wrong.

I just updated to Firefox 120, and tried the new GPC setting (Tell websites not to sell or share my data). I ran into a problem when I went to the Xfinity community forums (https://forums.xfinity.com/) . It causes a banner on top showing they recognize the setting. There is an "X" in the corner, and some text that says "Hide this banner", but they are not active. Plus, I cannot make a new post or do a general reply (that weird forum software has both local replies to a particular post and general replies to the general thread.)

Is this a bug in Firefox, or a bug in their forum software? I attached a picture of the message it gives.

Later version refuses to connect to my modem, and goes into security web mode. This modem uses HTTP/HTTPS for access, i.e., connects directly it's IP address, then the user enters a username and password. At that point, the the modem switches to HTTPS for control.

With this recent update, there is NO WAY to access the modem for any work, or upgrade the HTTPS certificate on the modem. This is a BUG.

What should happen is that if the web site will accept a HTTP connection, Firefox should NOT refuse connection or test for security issues UNTIL the user or the device switches to HTTPS.

As an aside, I've used Firefox on this Zywall modem for years until recently.

Despite reading almost 100 questions about this exact issue asked for years, there still seems to be no answer, and no fix to get this function to work properly.

Checking the box should completely remove the drop box for location, and the entire point is that it should ask you where to save every file,instead of defaulting.

I started getting screen flashes and then identifying pop up windows that go to adform dot com addresses, that are blocked on my computer so nothing other than a error shows up. Its annoying and random. I have checked security page and it says Block pop-up windows and this is blocked. Two exemptions are there which are acceptable. I have run virus checks on Bitdefender and Malwarebytes (Latest versions update) nothing is reported. - What is causing this and how do I stop it? After opening up the hidden window that flashes it tries different pages all fail then eventually the pop up window closes on its own.

Using latest version of Firefox browser 117.0.1 (64 bit) Don't get the pop ups on Google Chrome.

My laptop is often "borrowed"; access to my "recently bookmarked" items can (occasionally) be inappropriate. I am surprised that there is not a 'easy to access' method to toggle it OFF (!?) I found the below describing how to does this. HOWEVER, I do not find the key (showRecentlyBookmarked).

SUGGESTIONS ?

using: Windows 10 Home 22H2 build 19045.3930


Directly Edit a Preference The menu item switches a hidden preference from true to false, and you can do that directly as follows: (A) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful. (B) In the search box above the list, type or paste book and pause while the list is filtered (C) Double-click the browser.bookmarks.showRecentlyBookmarked preference to switch the value from true to false

Firefox 118.0.2 Windows 10 I cleared cache and cookies and since then when logging on to NatWest the "Remember Me" option will not work, I have to type in my customer number every time. I'm sure I had this problem a few years ago but cannot remember what fixed it. Tried contacting an agent of NatWest but their response was the expected "clear cache and try another browser" so no help at all. Probably a long shot but has anyone any idea what I am missing?

I want to delete all my web certs except for the top seven, which cover 99.32% of current web certs. I specifically do NOT want the EU Cyber Resilience Act to have the ability to insert their certs into my root store, enabling their member countries unfettered power to compel acceptance of their certs.

I tried following https://wiki.mozilla.org/CA/Changing_Trust_Settings, but this must be for an earlier version. I don't seem to have an Options/Preferences window. On the other hand I am pretty old & maybe just can't find it....

Hi, I am using Firefox vsn 120 for Linux Mint. I believe that I have the privacy and security set with the default settings.

However, Firefox seems to forget the information stored by websites, so that can't simply login.

Each. And. Every. Time. I have to go through the process of re-introducing myself to the security of the website provider who insists on sending me emails, SMS messages, etc. with codes to confirm who I am.

This applies, every time I use a site that requires a login (bank, BBC, Fidelity, eBay, Facebook....).

Once I have been approved on a site, then my login seems to work for a few days, up to a week and then off we go again with a new set of security codes. My settings do not delete cookies, and firefox is never closed, except if the PC needs a reboot, which is rare.

I would appreciate any help in settings that would allow me to use Firefox normally without having to enter security codes. Cheers, Mark
