Hello,

I appreciate very much the recent security changes in Firefox 127, about mixed content. I think it really does improve both security and privacy, but I have HTTPS websites in a local network (private IP addresses) that load some images from a local IP camera over HTTP. I do not have control over these IP camera images, so as a temporary workaround I am allowing the whole website to be delivered over plain HTTP.

It's not a huge security issue, because it's on a local network which I access over the Internet via a VPN, but I would prefer to keep the website on HTTPS and allow mixed content for this specific IP address, so to keep the protection fully enabled when I browse the Internet.

Is there a way to enter a specific IP address in an exception list, so to selectively allow mixed content? Or, in alternative, is it possible to specify that all web requests from private IP addresses (RFC 1918) should allow mixed content?

Many thanks,

Piero

Dear community,

since some recent update I am asked for a primary password every time I open the browser, which is higly annoying. I like my passwords protected by a primary password and in former times it was only asked for when trying to reveal a saved password. I know this has probably to do with me using Firefox sync, because I use the browser on my Android too but I would like to keep my devices synced. Besides: On my phone I am only asked for a fingerprint when accessing passwords, not every single time I open the app. There must be a way to reconfigure this on a desktop, right?

I use a password manager. Many of the web-based services I subscribe to use my email address as my user name - this is quite common.

When I am trying to login to one of these pages, your "Let Firefox hide your email address" message pops up over the selection box from my password manager. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to remove your message - which, in this context is totally inappropriate - but your message prevents me from logging in to my account when I need to choose between identities (example, work and personal).

Can I turn these messages off? or can you add a simple "X" to the window so I can close it without that action being picked up by my password manager?

To log into my mortgage lender's site I have to enter my email address. Beside this field is the Facebook container symbol; mousing over it warns me that if I enter my email here, Facebook can track me. Mortgage Lender used to allow me to log in with a user name, but now requires my email address, which apparently gives Facebook access to track me. Tried speaking to the lender about this, but they simply assert there are no Facebook trackers on their site. So, any workaround for this besides just doing all my business with them by phone from now on?

I recently upgraded my hardware and wiped my old drive, and I assumed I would be able to login through google directly and just recover my bookmarks that way. However, I can ONLY get in through a password (that I KNOW, but maybe its a character off, its driving me crazy) to recover my bookmarks despite being able to login to mozilla using my main email; which I have access to. I havent reset my password yet, so my bookmarks are probably still uploaded there. Very frustrating I was never notified that they changed it so that if you reset your password you lose your bookmarks, otherwise I would've written down this password. I've been collecting these bookmarks for years before this. is there a way to recover it through my gmail login?

Thanks for any help, Eric

Hello,

While in my internet banking it is not possible to copy/paste the IBAN, the sum or just the name or anything. No matter if I used the context menu copy/paste function or the keyboard shortcuts. I am trying to copy from a Google Drive opened text file or a template saved in my online banking.

In Chrome there was no issue with copy/paste.

Outside of my banking, there are no issues with copy/paste.

I expect it is a security setting somewhere, do you know which one it is?

Thank You!

As of January 2024, I am constantly being asked for a Primary Password when I use the Firefox browser. I do not believe I ever set a Primary Password or Master Password with Firefox, and I have been using Firefox for many years. When I go to the Settings page, it says to confirm my current Primary Password in order to change it. But I need to know my current password to do that. I also unchecked Primary Password, and got a pop-up that said if I remove my Primary Password my information will not be protected if my computer is compromised. Obviously, I don't want that to happen. Is it possible I am being asked for a Primary Password because I am using a VPN? Please advise on how to resolve this problem. I can't change my password, and I can't confirm ever setting one so I am concerned. Thank you.

Firefox crashed hard on me.

When I got it back it, all the add-on's were disabled, my bookmarks were missing, and my preferences destroyed.

So I need to delete Google as my default search engine and restore Yahoo as my preferred engine.

The button to add new search engine is missing.

Without using an add-on, how am I supposed to restore my search engine?

However, when I go to recover these, the only default profile I can find when I do an "about:profiles" is one that is five years old.

I can literally no longer access any of the sites I use because al of the logins are gone.

Hello,

NOTICE: Currently using Firefox 120.0.1 "Update disabled by your system administrator" I am unable to update the browser, the computers are from the public library.

Like I state in the Subject, I configure the browser to strict privacy level, and I am able to visit any site I want. No problem. But on all of these, when I click the lock icon on the address bar I read "Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla." In fact, right now, I am visiting this website and I got that notice. View image "Firefox broser does not recognize the certificate issuer fortinet but I can visit the firefox suport website - Screenshot 2024-01-28 172732.png"

WOW... View the image "certificate issuer not recognized by Firefox - fortinet - when visiting support.firefox.com - Screenshot 2024-01-28 173041.png" for some of the info I get if I view more information about the certificate.

Then, after I logged out, the "Clear cookies and site data" link that appears after clicking the lock icon I mentioned before do not appear.

View the image "UNable to clear cookies and site data - proton.me - Screenshot 2024-01-28 141951 - edited.png"

In this same computer, I got the control "Clear cookies and site data." View image "able to clear cookies and site data - virustotal.com - Screenshot 2024-01-28 141825.png"

So more than one question:

I read other posts where users are unable to visit a website which has a certificate issued by an issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla. Why am I able to visit these websites?

What can I expect of the non appearing "Clear cookies and site data" link I described before?

Are these computers like totally hacked?
