Hello

I have had this issue for 3 days now. I am unable to access yahoo mail or yahoo in general because I get warning potential risk ahead message. I had to make twitter account to be able to get in touch with yahoo support but they just offered a yahoo link which, of course, I am unable to open because of "potential risk ahead". I tried solutions suggested by people here at mozilla support, like clearing history, cache etc but it didn't work. I also tired accessing yahoo via internet explorer and chrome (installed on my father's laptop, windows 10) Of course same message appears. I am using windows 7 64 bit. I also tried Edge and of course it says yahoo site is not secure. I have never had these kind of problems before. I was always able to access yahoo via FIrefox and other browsers. It's really damn annoying because i see no solution to this damn crap. Also I am unable to upload a 170kb screenshot to show you the issue. Just keeps loading and loading and it doesn't stop. So I guess I will just have to describe it:

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to guce.yahoo.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for guce.yahoo.com. The certificate is only valid for *.amz-aws.jp. Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

https://guce.yahoo.com/consent?gcrumb=gscOGxw&trapType=login&done=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.yahoo.com%2F&src= Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match the server’s certificate. HTTP Strict Transport Security: false HTTP Public Key Pinning: false

I mistakenly downloaded an extension believing it to be a genuine Firefox one. It takes my to myemailxp.com Now I have a dialogue box which tells me my extension has expired, asks me to renew it, and prevents me getting into the browser. I just want to get rid of the extension and get back to basic, English, Firefox. How do I do this?

I just noticed that I was carrying a cookie from google. I run a strict cookie policy and I had made, previously, an exception to "allow for session" cookies for books.google.com . I noticed today, in a completely new session, that I was carrying a google cookie for " .google.com ." I have tried to delete this cookie several times. FF "acts as if I deleted the cookie. I close the cookie GUI and there it is again...just like now...

Name: PREF Content: ID=996ac2fe99a32ac8:TM=1418165280:LM=1418165280:S=-EYElo0JUfSC84AS Domain: .google.com Path: / Send For: Any type of connection Expires: Thursday, December 08, 2016 4:48:07 PM

I deleted the exception for books.google.com closed and restarted FF, looked at cookies and there it is again! What is up with that? Just typing this message in, I have deleted and found "reborn again" this cookie. I don't want it. I do not want to delete "all cookies" as some are the core of my security policy in managing my websites. I have tried typing into the cookie GUI "google.com" and set to "block" and it is there (the block), I have also set a "block" for .google.com and the cookie reappears.

So what is going on and why doesn't any of the usual methods work? Is there still some "hidden" crossovers between google and Mozilla? I know Mozilla has cooperated with Google in the "safe browsing" area, and from local appdata folder I see an many "goog..." files.

Do I have to turn this off to get google off my computers cookies?

Hello,

I use firefox for work and use only certain sites and this message is really annoying, especially for intranet sites. So, I really want to know how to totally disable this security type of checks.

I already spent to much time and this, I don't want to do debugging or stuff like that, I just want to totally disable any check for "untrusted sites" and yes I am fully aware of the dangers, attacks etc.

And actually I find it quite annoying that Firefox blocks me from accesing something I want. Warnings are OK, but totally blocking me, not even "I understand this, add exception ... bla bla" is not kosher.( the error is sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Thank you.

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.


Thanks,

The user identification request box changed from Firefox 52 to 53. I use a smart card that has multiple certificates, and it is now very difficult to distinguish one from the other when a request is made. In 52, the type of certificate was displayed in the certificate drop-down box. Now in 53 the only noticeable difference between certificates is the serial number, so I have to scroll down in the details section to determine if it's an "e-mail" or "id" certificate.

Is there a way to have the type of certificate displayed in the drop-down box, or change the size of the user identification request box so I can see the relevant info to distinguish the certificates?

Hello Techies, facts are these: Firefox + HTTPS Everywhere on Linux, updated once a day. I connect to my webmail, Yahoo.com, and often the padlock turns to grey+orange triangle. But https is still present in the URL bar (by the way, I've set browser.urlbar.trimURLs to false). So I try and refresh page (F5), positive result only every now and then. I tried and switched to Basic display (I guess it should be lighter), positive result only every now and then. I feel I can't do anything to fix this annoying and weird lack of security. This "instable green" only occours connecting to Yahoo. When I connect to Facebook, GMail, YouTube or whatever I do NOT have problems at all. No difference using a normal, super updated session rather than a Live one (as I'm doing right now). I've written to Yahoo Help Community to explain as above and I was told it depends on the way Firefox "sees" Yahoo, and to ask You. Thanks a lot... To me it actually IS a Yahoo problem (not the first time, though...), but still I ask you whether you can suggest how to fix the problem or you know more about it. Many thanks and best regard.

I am trying to load YouTube, Wikipedia, and some other websites but I ended up with "Insecure connection". None of these are bookmarked pages, so https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1181480 does not help, as it is about search engines. Note that the websites I tried to visit are all HTTPS websites, but HTTP websites work.
