I would like to know about changing some security settings in about:config.
Right now in about:config the line [security.OCSP.require;false], and line[services.sync.prefs.sync.security.OCSP.require;false] are set to false.
Would I have better browser security if these two line were set to 'true'?
Are there other security changes I could make in about:config that would result in better security.

I previously posted the following as a Reply whereas it ought to have been a Question: I use the save passwords facility and when I want to login in to one of my Yahoo accounts, I used to simply type the first character of my Yahoo account name and FF would either show a dropdown list of all of my accounts starting with that character or, if only one account exists starting with the typed character, FF shows just that one in the dropdown list. When I clicked on the required account name, FF auto-filled the password box. Since updating to FF V25 this functionality appears compromised, on first use after starting FF it may work but then on the next use, nothing happens when I type the first character of the account name. TO MAKE IT WORK AGAIN, I click on Tools, select Options and ensure that the Security tab is visible (where I can see 'Remember Passwords for Sites' is ticked), then I click on OK (WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING ELSE) then it works correctly in giving the dropdown list of account names and auto-completing the password when I select an account name. I do the above procedure every time FF doesn't display the dropdown of account names and it fixes the problem - I don't do anything on the Security tab within the Options window other than click OK ! Does any one know why saved names/passwords will only function correctly for the Yahoo sign-in page only after simply opening Options/Security tab and then closing it? I am not using Private Browsing. Regards, Steve 11th November 2013.

Until this week I easily handled my cookie preferences by NOT checking the "except cookies from sites" option. I then made exceptions to this default with the exceptions tab or through a cookie manager add-on. Since the last recent Firefox update, this no longer works. Nothing in cookie exceptions does anything. In addition to not letting me allow cookies, it will also not let me block cookies when I do check the "except cookies from sites" option. The Cookie Exceptions Do Nothing. I will appreciate any real help.

I've been developing an application using Visual Studio 2010. I've been using FireFox 24.0 as my browser running VS's IIS dev server. It was running fine before a company policy procedure meant I had to change my computer name.
After restarting, I get an error 403 Server Error in '/' Application.
I first checked my IIS settings and made sure the service was running. When that didn't help, I chose another browser by default. The application ran as normal which points to some security setting on FF. I cleared the cache and cookies and other things but nothing I've tried works.

My master password and all my stored password disappeared in Firefox 53. In security setting tab of setting the "use master password" checkbox is disabled and if I try to enable it a pop up error window is opened. Rolling back to Firefox 52 the situation returns to normal status and the master password appears again. What's happening? Is there an undocumented incompatibility? How can I use my stored password under Firefox 53?

Every time I log into TD bank using Firefox, it insists that I use two factor authentication, i.e., enter a code sent to my phone into the web interface. I explicitly indicated that I don't want this on TD Bank's web page settings. Nonetheless this keeps happening. I've tried clearing the cache and cookies, with no luck. I contacted TD Bank support and they are stumped. Please help.
Notes: This happened since I upgraded to Firefox Quantum (60.0.1). It did not used to happen before. This happens in Private windows as well. Windows 8.1 system, Avast antivirus, no encryption or other safety tools.
Thanks in advance for your help!

I use Little Snitch which shows Firefox allowing connections to 8 IP addresses that, for not seeing a reason, I blocked in LS. Nevertheless, LS lets about 10% of those connections through, so I police and disconnect. On the net, I found that those IPs belong to Level3 Communications which has a bad rep among some. I contacted the Little Snitch people who advised that I was wrong & the real owner is google (not really an answer to why their program lets through even after I've blocked). But here's the thing -- I use google ONLY for e-mail; I don't want to place my computer at their disposal for anything else. SO, should I continue my blocking campaign, or let the eight IPs through. My concern is Privacy and Security.

I tried to make a purchase and during one of the redirects Firefox reported that it was unable to establish safe negotiation (error code: SSL_ERROR_UNSAFE_NEGOTIATION). The site that had the problem is https://secure5.arcot.com/ . I have security.ssl.require_safe_negotiation set to true. However, if I set it to false and go to that site, Firefox reports that it uses "TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384, 256 bit keys, TLS 1.2". I am not an expert in ciphers/TLS but the version seems sufficiently new.
I would like to report the problem but I need to know whom to report it. So far, it seems like a Firefox bug. However, I am not a security expect and, perhaps, the site is using a different obsolete SSL version to negotiate. How can I determine what exactly caused the failure?

On of the websites I have editors right on doesn't have SSL installed.
Since I upgraded to Firefox Quantum, when I go to the login page, I can't enter my login details anymore. The field is not clickable. It works on other browsers.
Firefox does warn me that the website is insecure, but how can I go through anyway ?
Thank you !

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Ironically the html source shows the page is there and complete. Under 'Preferences->Privacy & Security I have unchecked 'Block dangerous and deceptive content" to no effect.
All is fine under Safari. This is a critical issue as I am having to abandon my much preferred Firefox for Safari, which does not have issues.

I have shortcuts for 6 websites "saved" in my taskbar as I visit these websites very often (please see 1st screen shot). Ever since the last Mozilla update, I get a message saying "File Download - Security Warning" (please see screen shot with warning message). If I click on "Open" in the warning box, it takes me to the website, however, it's quite annoying to have to click "Open" every time. I tried re-saving the shortcuts to my taskbar with no success. I also copied the shortcuts from my taskbar and pasted them on my desktop. When I click on the copy/pasted shortcut on my desktop, I am taken directly to the website with no security warning. I have not changed any security settings before/after the last Mozilla update. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to keep my website shortcuts in my taskbar without receiving the security warning message. Thanks!

I got a little gungho when I was trying to figure out why my website wouldn't load on firefox and loaded on chrome and safari - and I did some 'cleaning up' and deleted certificates. Now nothing will load. I've deleted the cert8.db, and tried the steps under "Corrupted certificate store" in this article: What does "Your connection is not secure" mean? Reset Firefox, deleted and reinstalled firefox, and still nothing works, and I continue to get this error on all https sites:

Hello, I want to prevent third parties accessibility services to enter my browser. But the way this checkboix is formulated confuses me. If I check the box 'prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser' is it then enabled or disabled? What are the accessibility services here? I read all the instructions but still find it a confusing sentence to check or uncheck?
Should I read the sentence as "prevent Firefox Accessibility Service from accessing your browser'? Or should I read it as "prevent any type of physical impairment assistive software from accessing your browser?
Hope you could help me with this. And if so it could be nice to make this sentence a bit clearer. Or maybe I'm just a bit confused and you should just leave it like this;)

I use the site daily. I can usually get on once in the morning but that's it because, as of yesterday, Firefox is blocking the site because it says connection is not secure and I get the page Problem loading site and Server not Found. I have been using this site for ages and intend on using it regularly. When I left click the "i" and see that it's not secure I also see that no permissions have been granted. I went to help to try to find a solution but the issue is that when I click on the arrow available there I am just told that I am not private and I can be seen. A box opens with Page Info about My Points.com with three headings: General, Media, and Security. The General tab just repeats the problem loading page issue. The media page cites some skin from Chrome which I don't understand as I am not using Chrome but am using FF. It says in the address box: chrome://global/skin/icons/warning-16.png Icon chrome://global/skin/icons/info.svg Background In the media preview box it shows the yellow triangle with a !
This is weird as it has absolutely nothing to do with MyPoints.com. The Security tab tells me I have visited the site over 1500 times and says it isn't storing cookies on my computer and i have no saved password and I believe both of these are false answers.
I searched help to find a fix but can't as I can't seem to get to the same Control Center boxes shown in the example. I don't think my version of FF has them. I also don't have the option of clicking a box in where you see Permissions when you click the "i" that lets you allow the site to run like I see in the example. I run FF 52.2.0 32 bit esr update channel as I need to run Java and shockwave for most of what I do on here. i play no video games, just casual games like text twist) but I do take surveys and use email programs that require these plug ins. I run Win7 64 bit.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
