Hi,

I found some discussion related (https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/disable-add-ons-on-specific-website/33693) but no solution yet.

This is imho a big flaw in the privacy of users.

There are trivial cases, for example if I use a YouTube downloader plugin, I obviously want it to monitor my browsing ONLY when I'm on youtube.com...

And there are some critical cases: when I browse my web banking, or when I go on some trading website, I don't want my financial operations to be at risk because of an add-on that is very useful everywhere but on those site.

However, I don't want to exclude all the add-ons for those website too, that would be just too much.

I think there's already a coding base in place, since you can disable each add-on when using private windows. This could be enhanced by having a system of whitelist/blacklist instead. And this feature would actually make more sense than using a private window.

Another way would be to have this feature on per container, instead of per website, than would work well too.

People have different activities, and some requires useful plugins, that are very specific. I mean Keepass's add-on (for example) is useful everywhere, but many add-ons are related to one activity at a time.

For example, if I'm a marketer and want to analyze website, I'll use add-ons for having stats on metadata or keywords or even real time reports from Alexa or from AliExpress, etc...

But when I'm reading my email, I'm not happy those add-ons can see my data.

That would be tedious to disable all those plugins every time I change activity, especially since we are productive humans so obviously we need to alternate those activities doing multitask all the time.

And the private window option is not flexible enough for that kind of multitasking, when containers are.

I hope this helps everyone understand clearly why I think my request is not only a real user need, but also currently a flaw in users privacy since most people will not trade the comfort of their add-ons for some privacy concern they don't always understand...

I know this is some kind of feature request more than ask for help, but https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/FirefoxInput/ is out of service so I don't know where to address my concern here.

Thanks for helping me pushing this idea forward.

I would like to search the bugzilla database for known issues.

While there is a builtin search tool, that does not work: if I search for a string and limit the search to one specific bug where I know it contains the string, then that bug is reported. Doing the same search over all bugs, it (takes long and then) reports that no bug at all contains the string - not even the one where I know it contains the string.

So this search tool is proven defective and cannot be used. What alternatives are there?

Hello I'm working at Imperva which is a security company. One of our product is Web Application Firewall. In this product one of our feature is to identify the application that is used when sending request to a web service. This may help our customer to set FireFox request as legit. One of the attribute that helps us doing it is the request header User Agent. We have found that FireFox which is installed on Ipad generate the following User Agent without the keyword 'firefox' (while Desktop FireFox and IPhone firefox does) Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_4) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/13.1 Safari/605.1.15 (Note that this User Agent ) Because the User Agent is very similar to Macbook Safari application, we can't classify FireFox on Ipad.

Is there any reason why this is the implementation? Can you update the User Agent in the next version in order the security product will be classify it?

Mozilla has no true feedback page any more, so I chose to post here. I kept the "Allow Firefox to install and run studies" box unchecked since I began to use the Firefox browser (years ago). While I was researching a different issue, I found other users' posts about app.normandy. They all said that it allowed Mozilla to do what Mozilla promised not to do: run studies in violation of users' preference to opt out. Based on what I learned from those posts, I found where app.normandy was in my computer's about:config and toggled it to false. I want to thank those other users for their posts. Mozilla's explanation, also according to those posts, is that "Normandy is a collection of servers, workflows, and Firefox components that enables Mozilla to remote control Firefox clients in the wild based on precise criteria." Aside from whether or not Mozilla should be remote-controlling clients in this way, does it really consider all the diverse places in the world where its users live to be "in the wild?"

Hi, I trust you all had a (well deserved) merry Christmas.

I have a question regarding bookmarks in Firefox. This is something that has been bugging me for some years (yes, it has taken me that long to get around to asking about this). Over the last decade I have amounted a large assortment of bookmarks, which I have carefully structured and also add suitable tags to (as I know what I am likely to search for in future). This works very well for me and it's surprising how my past self has been so accurate at predicting what I may find useful to my present/future self, when it comes to searching for something in my bookmarks.

Herein lies my problem though. I often need to put in a number of tags to make a given web resource findable in the future. For example, I was just reading up about the Google compute module, and have been trying to enter the following tags: Google Edge TPU (Neural compute) sbc network artificial intelligence machine vision intel stick Quantization

This number of keywords is too long, yet I don't want to really remove any of these words/acronyms. Why are the bookmarks so heavily restricted with regards to tags? I see that when I look at the bookmarks, there is also a **keywords** option too, but those words are not searchable, so I don't see much value in placing anything in there.

I am not 100% sure, but I could swear too, that bookmarks used to have a description section too, where I could make notes regarding a weblink (EG: "this website has particularly good recipes for pasta, but ignore their vegatarian options as they don't review very favorably"). I may be thinking of another web browser from a long time ago. Having a description field for each bookmark (which is not restricted to a ridiculously short length like the **Tags** field) would be an excellent idea.

so, to summarize: 1. How do I work around having such a short **Tag** field (and when is Mozilla going to fix this?) 2. Can we please have a Description field for each bookmark. Please!

These are just about my only criticisms of what is otherwise my absolute favorite of browsers. Thanks for the great work and effort by all, and have a prosperous and healthy 2021.

Background:

Was forced to upgrade to version 65 which broke the tabs on bottom setting. Tried to install a ESR version but it kept crashing. Went back to version 64 which was immediately forced to upgrade to the broken version again (which I didn't allow).

The problem is this. The people who have implemented this forced upgrade feature are probably using Windows 10 (forced updating) and are used to being treated like second class citizens by Microsoft. Forced upgrading is completely inappropriate. I've used browsers since Netscape, all of the Firefox versions, rarely use any other browser. Never had a problem except with your forced updates.

Lucky for me I found the registry fix for admins to disable updates. Reasonably inconvenient but a hell of a lot better than putting up with forced updates that break the browser.

Question:

How about bringing back the choice to upgrade. How about, at least giving two reminders to upgrade and then disabling the messaging. This messaging is extremely disrespectful - i.e. we are going to keep on annoying you until you upgrade (to a broken system).

Dear Firefox,

It's the first time I am using FireFox! Seriously. For long years I've been an avid Opera and then Vivaldi fan, unfortunately, recently Vivaldi started to become even less compatible with many sites, and I personally started to think more about security and privacy in the Web. I've found that many tech sites recommend using new FireFox as it is as fast as is configurable with its add-ons. That said, I've found this list of 13 add-ons that would help secure my privacy:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/mozilla/privacy-matters/

Unfortunately, I am no IT wizard, but a simple user, and I cannot tell if I should istall all 13 of them? Or maybe the overlap in some usages? And futhermore, should I add an addblocker to it?

I would appreciate all the info and help you guys provide :) Thank you in advance.
