I browsed a clothing website for less than 5 minutes by typing in the address and not using any links. Shortly after I receive an email asking if I was still interested in what I was looking at. Does Firefox share my email address with websites I'm visiting? I believe the email is coming from SafeOpt, not the website I visited. I do have "do not track" options selected in Firefox.

Cloudflare changed their algorithms recently and now it doesn't let me pass their DDoS protection page with `privacy.resistFingerprinting` option enabled. Even if I solve CAPTCHA multiple times. This is a huge problem because It is used on many many MANY websites.

Hello- Can someone please direct please direct me to an easy way to display images from a specific site? The site is a West Virginia state government records site that is not likely to be https compliant in the near future. I have cleared cache and I have uBlock Origin as my only extension. I only need to do this for the following site and after v. 92 the images no longer display.

www.wvculture.org

Here is a sample link to an image which does not display www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_view.aspx?Id=36270&Type=Marriage

Thanks, Scott

After upgrade to Fx 92.0, my ISP ip is shown as IP address when I visit ip.voidsec.com after every startup of Firefox! The socks5 proxy would work properly only after that page been refreshed several times. But if I change the value of network.trr.mode frome 3 to 2 or the value of network.proxy.socks_remote_dns from false to true, the socks5 proxy would work properly at once. It used to work well all the time on Firefox 91.0!

PS:Fx 90.0 also skips socks5 proxy sometimes while Fx 89.0 doesn't with the same settings. It can be easily reproduced. I think it's a bug.

I searched and searched how to add FF to my authenticator so I could get the code to set up sync and/or 2FA. FINALLY, someone gave this answer: When you enable 2FA then you get a QR code that you need to scan with an Authenticator app that generates a 6-digit code that you need to enter to confirm that 2FA is working.

The answer was "scan with the AUTHENTICATOR APP!!" I was just scanning it with the phone. Duh on me.

I'm posting this to help others. Sorry it's not a question per se.

Firefox 92 causes cross domain authentication errors

I currently run several environments for Dynamics 365 products. Our clients can choose to use our authentication (ADFS 4.0) or we set up a SSO option for them (normally also ADFS of some flavor). The piece that is similar between both is that the domain they authenticate to would not be the same as the application they are necessarily using. For example my clients have a mixture of on premise and cloud deployments but if they are SSO only pull their tokens from one domain.

Anyways the real TLDR as I can determine is as follows:

Has anyone seen a problem with firefox 92 stripping out headers? My scenario is I have an AD FS server that I use for single sign on with a domain name that is different from the application that it federated with. When I attempt to login using Firefox, the traffic flows as: 1. Hit the app url and get 302 redirected to the IDP 2. enter credentials at the IDP and get redirected to the app url 3. the app has an internal and external claims URL, so the internal claims url 302 redirects me to the external url 4. FF brings up the external url, but does NOT pass the MSISAuth and MSISAuth1 cookies from the IDP 5. The app thinks I've not authenticated, so it 302 redirects me back to the IDP 6. The IDP sees the MSISAuth and MSISAuth1 cookies, so it knows it authenticated me and it 302 redirects me back to the app wash, rinse, repeat for 5 times until AD FS realizes that I've done this 5 times, then it throws an error at me to stop the loop. This was working fine in FF 91 and it currently works in Chrome and Edge. The expected flow is almost the same, except that the app get's the cookies presented to it from AD FS. I was thinking this was something to do with Enhanced Tracking Protection. When I selected Custom and unchecked all the options (I think this disables ETP) I still get the cookies stripped from the header. I re-enabled ETP with standard protections and manually added the URLs using the steps outlined at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1432644#c27. Is this a bug where FF doesn't honor the settings to disable ETP in V92? The reason I was thinking that ETP was to blame is the IDP has a domain of IDP.example and the app has the URL's of internalclaim.app and externalclaim.app.

I feel like I am missing something obviously here but I can't find it. If I create a CRM deployment using the same domain as our ADFS servers it works fine. If I use what our public designation is, it fails. SSO obviously fails. It only started after upgrading to 92 and that is consistent amount all of our clients. I have tried to go through every advance config that was touched with the 92 upgrade and nothing there seems to help. We compared our UAS to a friend of ours who is not having issues since the 92 release and they look the same. If this was a system 92 problem I would expect the internet to be exploding by now but it is not. It makes me think there is something I am missing in our fundamental set up but for the life of me I can't identify a missing update, compatibility issue, known issue blah blah blah. Edge, Chrome, Safari they all still work fine. It is just the Firefox 92 update that all of a sudden killed our authentication.

Former Chrome user, finding my way in Firefox.

For some reason the shortcut ctrl + shift + p does not work when I use the left shift key on my keyboard.

When I use the RIGHT shift key with ctrl and P it DOES work. When I use the LEFT shift key with ctrl and P it does NOT work. I have a Coolermaster keyboard. I never noticed any difference between right shift and left shift? Does Firefox interpret them as different keys?
