unable to turn off safe search when using Bing search. After clicking the more bars on the Bing search page and setting safe search to off, when checking if it is off, it has reverted to moderate. Firefox is vs 96.0.1. Setting is set to normal, not strict. Windows 10 preferences are set to safe search off. All caches have been cleared. I took off all extensions, ran malware bytes & cccleaner & anti-virus scan. I tried a refresh of Firefox. Nothing has helped.

Using Edge or Chrome browsers on the Bing search page, Safe search turns off as it should.

--There was a power failure, last night, which knocked off my computer.  That may or may not be related.  However, with both Edge and Chrome accessing Bing okay, it seems to definitely be a Firefox problem?

Unable to clear the Cached Web Content. In settings and security, I "Clear Data." I have the browser set to clear upon exit. I have gone into my control panel (windows 10) and also set my security to clear all upon exit from browser. I have rebooted my computer after clearing and resetting my preferences. I have used my Bitdefender to clean everything I could think of.

Please tell me how to clear out. I have never had this problem before.

Thank you for your reply. This is the error message I get when trying to access my own website through Firefox. I have no problems accessing my own website through Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge?

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.


We can’t connect to the server at www.qrm-assocites.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

  Try again later.
  Check your network connection.
  If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

There must be setting on my laptop or in Firefox that I may have to change? I already tried clearing my browser cache and data as well as my ip address.

Do you have any other suggestions what may be going on with my Firefox browser and allowing me to access my website: www.qrm-associates.com.

Thank you

I'm having problems opening saved (archived) Facebook pages. The problem is the page opens without formatting or layout, just text and images.

I've had this problem before when I was using Firefox 68. The solution was to roll back a security patch by doing the following as proposed by jscher2000:

You can roll back the patch as follows if you want to see what difference it makes:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste uniq and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the privacy.file_unique_origin preference to switch the value from true to false

That had worked until recently. I checked "privacy.file_unique_origin" and its still has a value of 'false' but the webpages are not opening properly, even ones I saved over the last few years.

What can I do?

Hello,

Recently an adult site I go to, which features videos, isn't working: I can get to site, but nothing shows up on the screen. I've always had 'strict' privacy and adblocking protections, but something seems to have changed. This started happening maybe three weeks ago?

I did follow Mozilla instructions, and clicked on the 'shield' next to the address, changed 'enhance tracking' to off for this site. But that didn't solve the problem. What would be the next thing to try?

Thanks in advance!

I've been trying to configure my laptop to suit my needs, which differs from those on desktop. Basically, I trust both devices due to full-disk encryption, but it's possible to steal my laptop while powered on and unlocked. Hence my laptop approach is strict while adding a few exceptions that rely on successful authentication without remembering passwords.

I find it quite hard to manage exceptions. I've spend a couple of hours reading through this forum as well as numerous FAQs and guides, yet it appears there are a lot of conflicting options that override certain settings. The entire process is pretty counterintuitive and could use an overhaul from a UX perspective, where a simplification of the process might also result in the resources becoming more useful.

Anyway, one of my issues is that it appears I can't use asterisk * when defining URL exceptions for cookie settings. Second, unless explicitly defined, the protocol defaults to http and not https. I guess I should ask what happens before complaining too much. Example time:

1: I add the URL 'example.com' 2: Firefox converts it to 'http://example.com' 3: I add the URL 'https://example.com'

How will each of these exceptions work for the following: https://www.example.com https://this.example.com

And how can I mitigate this without a regex or similar, short of manually adding an extensive list of possible variations in between https:// and .example.com? To clarify, I'll need an exception for something like https://*.example.com

Finally, how is this affected by individual settings in the sections Enhanced Tracking Protection, Cookies and Site Data, and History? Any pitfalls I should be aware of?

Between two Win10 Home PCs, both used to have all my Saved Logons, but somehow one PC has dropped them all. Both PCs do use Firefox Sync between successfully, but while that synchronizes Bookmarks (& whatever else), evidently NOT "Saved Logons". So, isn't there some way to EXPORT all of them to a file, to then IMPORT them to my other PC? Incidentally, within Saved Logons, there is a button named IMPORT, but it's used is only for importing from 3 other designated browsers, and apparently on the self-same PC. Searching Firefox Support was a waste of time ... their 'results' are just wide nets of hundreds of irrelevant things, no matter how precise I attempt each search. Bad support job on self-help, Mozilla.

I've asked on Reddit but I haven't found a fix for this yet so I'm asking here. In the settings for Firefox it says that my browser is being managed by your organization. But it has no mention of any settings being restricted, and when I clicked the notification to check the policy the page was entirely empty. I also checked the Firefox program folder and there wasn't any sign of an Autoconfic file that I could notice. One user mentioned on Reddit that this issue is often caused by antivirus companies forcefully inserting their own SSL certs to intercept your encrypted traffic, he then suggested turning off "web scanning" but my antivirus (which I only use Malwarebytes and Windows Defender) already had them disabled. After doing some research on my own I found out that the antivirus Avast used to cause this issue, and I had uninstalled Avast a while back, so I figured that the reason that the policy wasn't there was because Avast was uninstalled, but, I never saw this notification before today. So if anybody can help me pinpoint what this is and how remove it would be much appreciated. But all I really want to know if is this is something that I should be worried about or is it simply a bug. Also one other question is why the top sites and search bar is really close to the address bar after the latest update. Is this just a design change? Or is this something I need to be concerned about? Because I didn't notice this on Firefox on my laptop. Thanks in advance.

Windows 10 Pro, Version 1903, OS Build 18362.418 FF 70.0 (64 bit)

Let me preface this with saying I worked in IT for a long time. I'm stumped on this one.

FF worked fine on 10/22/19. Tried opening FF on 10/23/19 and it kept crashing. I started the task of finding out why.

Opened in Safe Mode and saw the latest FF update. Also discovered a new addon that I did not install: Adaware Secure Search. It wasn't there the last time I reviewed addons (which I do frequently, trying to find the best addon's for my usage) and I hadn't installed anything new recently. Disabled Adaware and FF started opening properly.

I don't want Adaware Secure Search however there is no Remove option in the dropdown. So, I started hunting online to try and remove it.

It is not in the Control Panel. It is not in the registry - I searched in every folder. Ran MalwareBytes and other tools - they don't see Adaware Secure Search anywhere. I followed the instructions that required the use of Troubleshooting and found Adaware is also not in my FF profile (that I can tell - the .xpi files are difficult to figure out since the majority are in number value). Tried refreshing FF and it showed up again. Un/re-installed FF and there it is again!...but this time i had the "joy" of having to redo my tabs, etc. It isn't on my other browsers either, just FF.

How do I get this removed? I don't want it to somehow become enabled in my system.

I'm using an extensive HOSTS file to block content, etc., from websites, which is a pretty common use of HOSTS. However, Firefox 70.0 is ignoring the HOSTS file and loads sites that are explicitly named as 0.0.0.0 addresses. Other browsers, such as Chromium, work as expected and return a "not found" message. Is this a bug in Firefox or is there some setting, such as under about:config, that needs to be set properly? Thanks for any help/suggestions.
