Hello,

I use Firefox 35.0.1. I set up the options to never keep the cookies.

The issue : I log on an Exchange webmail. I read my emails. I log off from the Exchange webmail. I go back to the mail page of the webmail, and I am logged in !

Other test : I log on an Exchange webmail. I read my emails. I log off from the Exchange webmail. I close Firefox. I re open firefox, I go back to the mail page of the webmail, and I have to enter my credentials (that is normal)

Other test : I log on an Exchange webmail. I read my emails. I log off from the Exchange webmail. I force Firefox to remove the cookies, but I keep Firefox opened. I go back to the mail page of the webmail, and I have to enter my credentials (that is normal)


Other test : I tried to reproduce the issue with another Internet Browser (the "e" one). I log on an Exchange webmail. I read my emails. I log off from the Exchange webmail. I go back to the mail page of the webmail, and I have to enter my credentials.

So, it seems not to be a webmail configuration, as another browser behaves normally.

Is there something that i have not thought about ?

Thank you for your help

I need to configure Firefox in an enterprise environment. Other that using 3rd part group policy templates which I do not want to do, the only option I have found to lock it down is using preference files. This will lock down Firefox but I need a way to stop an admin user from manually editing the configuration files.

I thought of using a group policy preference to copy the preference files on every GP refresh but it can take up to 90 minutes for the policy to apply. Is there a better way to lock down the files themselves?

Firefox Exploit Screen-Captures

Hi guys, Well, I think I bring here a very interesting thing for the Mozilla team. I found I have some sort of exploit which takes screen captures whenever I click on any web page. It is specially active whenever you are entering sensitive information like when I log-in onto site accounts, o whenever I check something on the bank. I checked processes using process explorer, and everything points at Mozilla being very active and nothing else. I check the creation of those screen captures and they are always, there. I normally kill every process which is not necessary, and the ones left are just essential. I ran several bootable antivirues like Eset, Kaspersky and Bitdefender and they don't detect anything weird. I removed from a bootable CD all temp files this "thing" creates while making files and take snap of my screen. I goes back on when you are back on Windows. I know that something was going on when on the bank site I had a AVG-antivirus alert saying that an exploit was active and gave me the option to remove it. Other than that, you don't feel a thing. As said, it goes back the alert everytime you visit the bank and some other log-ins, specially while banking. I also disable all Firefox add-ons, as well as the Java on my computer -I believe there's some connection with Java here-. I have the suspicion that it is pdf/exploit coz I saw a glimpse of that name while uninstalling something which I thing was Facemoods. Not too sure how it got there. So there, guys!! I don't know where this "thing" resides, really does -it could be doing more things-, or how to get rid of it. PS: I saw a while ago that I have to mozilla folder hanging from "program files". One is mozilla.bak. I'm digging into this now. Any shed on this, you pros!! I'm not a pro myself, yet I love IT :-) Thanks a bunch in advance to anyone taking the time to solve the one big problem Firefox has and is going to have in the short run. BR F

I often use the hungarian OTP bank online bank service nly on my personal macbook. Nobody else uses my comp. Last time when I tried to log in, the username and the account number (these are login data) were not mine! These werent a fake numbers, these were someone else's login details. The password field is always empty and at first glance I did not realize this fake numbers, I just typed my password and the login was unsuccesfull. When I checked the account number I realized these were unknown numbers, not mine. How does it happen?

My home page is my companies home page which requires authentication. Before the latest update I had no problems, but now it won't let me log in. I enter the credentials and hit OK and the box just keeps coming back up. I can log in via Safari with no problem so it appears that it's something in the security settings but I can't figure out what. I've tried a number of fixes that I've seen for similar issues, but none seam to work.

As an aside... it is way too difficult to ask a question through Mozilla Support!

Hackers have taken control of my Firefox and are maliciously using developer mode to alter settings and change behavior. They have hidden help/feedback icon so I can't send emergency info to firefox. They repeatedly change privacy settings for gmail on firefox to capture/alter my emails. They turn off my google sign in which has protected mode always on so they can load porn, inflammatory politics or foreign crap onto my youtube "recommended videos." They have posed as me and signed up for "developer" software in firefox that manipulates the entire account. They used a different email address and sign in to github on my own computer to do this, and I don't know the email address and can't do this. All of the info in my firefox account is now repeatedly tampered with. They also pose as developers throughout my computer and maliciously change everything. My computer is for an individual, myself who isn't part of any organization and shouldn't have organization "administrators. Can't firefox recognize that these are hackers and eliminate them?

With the latest update access to all Cisco devices via FireFox is no longer supported. I am now receiving the following errors:

Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to [IP]. SSL received a weak ephemeral Diffie-Hellman key in Server Key Exchange handshake message. (Error code: ssl_error_weak_server_ephemeral_dh_key) The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

Is there a way to roll-back the version to avoid this or a permanent fix? FireFox is currently the only browser that works very well with Cisco devices and now it will not work at all.

Hello, I have recently noticed that despite the Firefox process being closed, there are a number of connections still open and remain open for the duration of the current computer session. Restart seems to close all connections. Connections increase and stay open the more I would browse.

OS is Windows 7 Ultimate Running Firefox 55.0.3 Using Kaspersky Internet Security 2018 to monitor active connections.

Screen shot attached to show some examples of active connections even when Firefox is closed. Any idea why this is happening and how to prevent it?

For past several days, a pop-up message appears every time I attempt to open my browser asking if I want to allow this app to make changes to my computer. The app is listed as Firefox Software Updater. When I checked Add-ons, I notice an add-on which is listed as temporary in support of Safe Browsing Version 4 and will supposedly be deleted once the roll-out of this feature is complete. How long is this 'roll-out' supposed to take? This has been going on for days. Should I be responding 'No' or 'Yes'? I'm using Windows 10 and Firefox 56.0.1.

Hi guys, I'm working on locking down Firefox for some of our corporate machines, and in at least one of our configurations, I need to completely remove access to the Library and all it's components for security reasons, as it could be abused to browse local drives, and these are supposed to be kiosks.

Is there a way to either disable the UI element of the Library (what's the CSS ID, and then I can try to put it in CCK2 to disable that UI element) or to completely disable the Library window/functions/feature itself?

As an administrator in a small office, i am using trend micro add on as a web filtering. But all of my web filtering rules will gone if the add on is disabled by my fellow officer in their PC. And i can't find any settings to lock it down.

I ask for this features because firefox is my favorite browser, and i want to keep using firefox. I Tried google chrome, and for now i cannot find how to disable my trendmicro web filtering on chrome (which is a good thing) Internet Explorer just not an option, it's too obsolete.

If firefox not updating this features in the near future, i will need to use chrome in order to patch my office security. Please update as soon as possible.

I was attempting to restore my tabs and as it wasn't working properly, I was editing a sessionstore.js or recovery.js looking for URLs that were present so I could re-open the tabs to recreate what I had before.

To my horror, on one of the tab details I find stored in the sessionstore/recovery, all the details from a purchase page I had filled in to buy a tour, had not only my name and address, but telephone number, and address. That would be bad enough, but also stored was the complete details of my credit card which I had used for the purchase. That included the name on the credit card, expiry date, and security code. It probably also had the card number, but I had been doing some editing so may have accidentally deleted it before I noticed what was in there.

How is this a regard by Mozilla for my privacy and security? When will this be rectified? I hope soon, as this sort of information should not be left around/stored on a computer following it's use.

I am not going to share the file details with you for obvious reasons, so I am not sure if the attached information will be any use to you.

Received an email from Mozilla (rightly) thrashing Facebook for privacy and security breaches.

The issue is that my Firefox sign-on password is used as my first name in the email.

ie Dear <then my password>,

it is difficult to think of a more serious breach than this, and there is now way to directly report the problem to them - hope they look at this post.

I have checked all my account setting and belive these are correct

These personalized newsfeeds, whatever they are-- Google does them all. Some are not as intrusive as others. But within Firefox, I get some of the most bizarre news stories... stories about things I'm not even talking to other people about or looking up online. How could it possibly find a connection? Even when there is a minute connection. It's not a coincidence. It's like, is my phone hacked-- are people reading my mind? It's some form of breach of privacy.

Granted, all the accounts I use are logged into Firefox. Tonight, I took a gander over the privacy settings, and as usual my jaw dropped in disbelief. Permissions; Locations, Camera, etc.-- instead of valuing peoples' privacy and not caring one ioda like Fuckfacebook, many privacy-invading functions are ON by default until they are turned off by the user. This is why I don't use apps. It's why I quit Facebook many years ago. And now, I say goodbye to Firebox. Sick and tired of people encroaching on my privacy. It's principal, nothing more, nothing less-- THIS BROWSER IS GONE. Stay out of my personal business.
