I use Simplify.com to track some financial data but I cannot log in from the Firefox browser. I can get to the login screen but when I click login there is a spinning circle which never stops. I think I have found ways to put this in the exceptions but nothing works. I have a similar issue with Zinio.com. I can get to the website but cannot login. For both of these sites I have to use Google Chrome to get in.

On 84.0.2 on OSx.

Firefox will offer to save usernames and passwords, but then does not remember them in the future. Attempting to import existing data from another browser into Lockwise prompts a request to set a primary password first. Attempting to set a primary password (which is currently not set), yields the error message "Unable to change primary password."

I was using an unprotected wifi for about 3 days and now I have unknown programs running and sometimes commond prompt boxes suddenly poping up and dissapearing. I'm nolonger using the computer and I'm changing all my passwords just in case. (not getting FF to remember them)

But there are unknown usernames and passwords in my synced passwords. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/930340 Does this mean the hacker has all my FF passwords and can access it anywhere and anytime if I change them is sync? Should I make a new Sync account?

I'm looking for non-social Firefox edition or version. I want to follow the latest FF updates, but without any integrated services like social spyware and any other kind of malware. Options disable / enable are not sufficient to be safe and security in Firefox is corrupted by social API.

Social services and features must be implemented only as a simple optional extensions and nothing more.

When I try to access this US military site, https://www.tricareonline.com/portal/page/portal/TricareOnline/Portal I get a warning that this site can't be trusted. I then get a notice to override Firefox if I trust the site. I get a certificate, override, and finally get the site. But this has happened a half dozen or so times, every time I try to log in to the military site. How can I log into this site without the annoying warnings?

A newspaper website asked if I wanted to tell them my location. Firfox popped up and asked if I wanted to automatically tell sites that ask my geographic location. I clicked and got more information. There was a section that gave instructions to permanently disable geographic location tracking. I followed the directions to disable, even though the default is no tracking. I had to type an two words with a : separating them into the address bar. This brought me to a long list of settings. I followed the directions but now it seems my location is being tracked by everyone.

How do I get back to this list of settings (which was not accessed through Options) to go back to the default?

Hi,

I'm using firefox for several years, but recently i discovered a weird effect on one of my computers, which was consistent across many FF versions (up to the recent version 17 now). All drop down menus on facebook were not working for me. On one pc I can click on the red globe, and a menu opens - while on the other pc nothing happened. Now I was able to reproduce it.

As soon as I activate the "ask how long cookies are stored" option in the privacy settings, the drop down menus wont work/show. Choosing the default "Keep them as long as they are valid" reenables the drop down menus.

I really like the cookie storage time option so i can decide which website will remember me.

I am no doubt asking in the wrong place, but...I have Apache2 running on a linux locally. I believe I have set it up to support server-side includes. I have a cgi-bin perl script, hell.pl:

#!/usr/bin/perl

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "Hello, world\n";
exit;

Under Firefox, I can generate the Hello World page through the url

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/cgi-bin/hell.pl

where xxx.xxx... is the apache2 server address.

But if I try to do that via the html file:

<HTML>
<HEAD></HEAD>
Test:<BR>
<BODY>
<!--#include virtual=/cgi-bin/hell.pl" -->
</BODY></HTML> 

All I get is page which is blank except for the "Test:" on line 1. The apache error and access logs show no relevant problems, as if the browser treats the serverside include as a comment.

I realize that the fault no doubt lies with the apache2 configuration, but I have studied and studied... and am now clutching at straws.

Changing from AT&T to Roadrunner, says ........ Proxy Servers - A proxy server lies in between your computer and the Internet. When you request a web page or other Internet content through your computer, you connect to your proxy. The proxy then requests the web page or content you're searching for on your behalf and returns it to you. The proxy's actions are carried out automatically and are invisible to you. A proxy is useful for filtering Internet content, connecting to the Internet through firewalls, and archiving web pages for quicker retrieval by users connected to it.

Road Runner does not support the use of proxy servers, and recommends that you disable proxies through your browser.

HSTS is problematic in that it incorrectly assumes that all users trust the default list of CAs and makes the adding of exceptions impossible even by advanced users.

For example, torproject.org is inaccessible on Firefox unless I am willing to trust DigiCert to never sign a fake certificate either by negligence or by court order of any country in witch they operate, thereby making every https: site ( not just torproject.org ) vulnerable to a MITM attack.

A user disabling CAs in the browser is not unreasonable given the ever growing list of CAs built into Firefox ( each one a potential point of failure ), the number of CAs that have been recently compromised and the very low standards required to obtain a certificate.

While I understand the desire to protect the average user who doesn't understand how certificates work and will click past warnings without reading them, this protection should not come at the expense of more security conscious users.

I would recommend an about:config setting that would allow the creation of exceptions by users who explicitly choose to do so.

So far the only kludge I have been able to come up with is to modify c:\program files\mozilla firefox\xul.dll with a hex editor and replace the sites on the list ( this is far from an ideal solution ).
