Hello, thank you for taking the time to check this out.

I was closing the volume mixer after I no longer needed it and realized that Firefox was showing levels go up whenever I spoke into my microphone. I had been using it before to chat, but not on Firefox at all during the session at the time. No music or videos were playing in any of my tabs. After a while, it no longer picked it up, but I know for certain that there was no output of sound coming from my computer. I haven't been able to replicate it yet, but it does worry me.

Hi everyone,

I've recently migrated to a new laptop and noticed, after setting up Firefox, that Twitter embeds weren't working on some websites. After some investigation, it seems related to my Enhanced Tracking Settings.

For example, I can get the embeds to appear if I change my Enhanced Tracking Settings to Standard, or if I set them to Custom and disable either of the following:

  • Tracking cookie protection
  • Tracking content protection

Interestingly, leaving the Enhanced Tracking settings as Strict (or Custom equivalent), and disabling Enhanced Tracking Protection for the particular site, doesn't work ...

Is this a bug? Or have I misunderstood how this (exception) mechanism works?

Here's the page I was looking at: https://www.vice.com/en/article/4ad3qp/donald-trump-tiny-desk-electoral-college

Could someone else try experimenting with their settings and see what renders on that article?

Best regards, Ed

Cannot create Certificate Exception

On my home network, I run a Ubiquiti UniFi Network (Security Gateway, Switch and WiFi Access Points). I access the administrative functions with UniFi Controller software which accesses those functions via https://localhost:8443. The Gateway Roouter itself is at 10.0.0.1:443, but cannot be administered at this address.

When I try to access the website, I get the standard Firefox invalid security certificate warning as the certificate is self-signed (image 1). Once I Accept the Risk and Continue, I can successfully log into the site. But once I quit my Firefox session, whenever I launch Firefox and try to access the site, I am again given the same invalid security certificate.

Previously, I was able to create a certificate exception which bypassed that warning, but no longer.

When I go into Firefox's Preferences : Privacy & Security : Certificates : View Certificates page, I can see a Temporary exception (image 2), which presumably only lasts for the current session. I try to Add Exception, enter my localhost port number' (image 3), then click on Get Certificate. It tells me that I have valid, verified identification. There is no need to add an exception (image 4).

And yet, every time I visit the localhost website, I am prompted with the warning. Any ideas of what I might do avoid this warning every time I want to access it? Is there some way to allow this device (or even ALL devices) on my home network to be trusted?

Also attached are images of my UniFi Certificate.

Thank you for any assistance.

At first, I am sorry for English, but I use a google translator. Maybe someone will write in Polish. I installed thunderbird 78.5.0 (64 bits) nowhere I can find information on how to set this program to download emails from the server and not to stay on this server. My point is that they should be downloaded to the computer and the server will then be clean without a message. That's what I had on my previous computer and it suits me very well. There is only information about leaving messages on the server everywhere, and I don't want to leave them. Please, ask for help screens where and what to set or where to enter what.

What can Y do to replace all my passwords into only one : - having something from the alphabet and some current number (eg ABC321) - which is only valid for a chosen period as chosen by a user (eg until March 2021) - that informs me by a message like "Be attentfull : your password is soon retired. Renew it soon" - that can be used on an old Pc with Microsoft Vista.... - ...and on a relative new laptop with Windows10 - also on a HuaWay if possible - when I am dying, the password should further exists until the password time is gone.

In this case I never have to make and hide a list where I can forget the hidden place or finding old (wrong) passwords or never forget what the other passwords were.

I have a new Dell XPS 13 with the current version of Windows 10. I only use Firefox (83.0 64bit) for internet access. CCleaner (free version, 5.74.8198 64 bit) tells me that I have accumulated 5000 some trackers since my last cleaning 3 days ago. Is CCleaner wrong? Is Dell or Windows 10 adding trackers when I am not using my browser? I have not cleaned out the Dell bloatware because I have not had time to see whether some are useful.

I did not have this issue on my old Lenovo laptop. I would get trackers but not 5000 in 3 days.

Suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello All, I struggle with Firefox and Windows CA.

I have installed in AD Windows CA and I want also use Firefox. I generated certificates, propagated to clients and on Chrome and Edge everything works as well.

Only on firefox i still have prompt about certificate: "MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_CA_CERT_USED_AS_END_ENTITY"

Due to tutorials I have set up GPO where i force "security.enterprise_roots.enabled", true" option but it doesn't work.

I have read the problem is with basicConstraints CA but I can't disable those module from certificate template in Windows CA.

I have also accepted certificates in Firefox.

What I can do to force Firefox to accept Windows CA certificates.

Regards
