Privacy and security setting require too much time and too much to have to learn just secure access to the Internet? Why don't you get it? Firefox users need to have default suites of security setting from which to choose. Examples: Maximum Security: High Security: Medium Security: Low security: Roll my own by picking and choosing.

Clicking on any of these security categories should list what is included and maybe an option to change something.

Once an option is chosen, subsequent changes and updates to features within that option should be automated and a 'What's new/changed in the chosen security category be added within security updates emails.

As it is I have to spend hours figuring what alll this stuff means just to get security internet acces via a Firefox - not that other are better.

Tracking protection cannot be disabled for certain site when i use Firefox in "always private" mode

Firefox 63.0b3 (64-bit) OS: MacOS 10.13.6

History: Setting "Always use private browsing mode" is enabled.

Tracking Protection: Use Tracking Protection to block known trackers: Always

Problem: there's no way to add a site to list of exceptions in "Tracking protection" section.

Enabling setting "Disable blocking temporarily" just disables tracking protection for one session (browser restart) but does not add the site to the list of exceptions.

I have been looking into the latest announcement of mozilla regarding tracking prevention. I can see that mozilla is trying what apple is trying with Safari ITP. The technical details describe that firefox checks the given URL in blacklist and then it checks if same URL is available in entity whitelist. If it s in blacklist and not in whitelist , it is treated as tracker .

My question here is how(on what basis) a URL is classified as blacklist / whitelist up front. What if a new website is created with tracking abilities . How will mozilla classify it is a tracker since it is new and will not be available on both blacklist URL list and whitelist's...

We enabled the option in FireFox (in the setting): Don't follow me.

But in the Window/Interface of FireFox it is possible to enable Dont' follow me option during a browser session.

Is the possible to enable the Don't follow me options so it will be mandatory for every browser session? A user should not have the option to disable "Don't follow me.

With kind regards, Ben Raben

I appreciate your helpful comments on my glitches.

I installed the latest version (62.0) of Firefox 64bit and connected to HBR.org http://www.hbr.org/

I cannot adjust the text size in any HBR.org's articles and banners keep loading. No add-ons are installed. Even though I turn on and off the private browsing mode, the glitch still exists. When I visited the website on Chrome, there was no problem at all.

I have uploaded the capture video on my cloud drive and YouTube. I captured a video showing hbr.org on Firefox and Chrome. You can find my problem explained above. https://drive.google.com/file/d/10ON1wfneH51SHsndFX8s5fkPf5cMFrWA/view?usp=sharing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7_jlpRBqws


Can you please help me fix this problem? Thank you for your help.

I've had two problems this week with websites I've used in the past with no problems.

1. A financial website, where documents have been uploaded for me to esign. I click to open the documents and just get an empty page. I was able to open and esign them in Chrome. I have opened secure documents on that site before and didn't have a problem but it may have been my first time using the esign function.

2. On my pet pharmacy website, https://ccpet.vetsfirstchoice.com/, I click on buttons/menus that don't open the page they're supposed to open. For example, Sign In. Shop the Sale. and so on. The URL does appear at the bottom of my window but nothing else happens and it doesn't show me the "working" animation that I get when something is loading slowly.

I can hover over the links and open them in a new tab, but then on the new tab some links don't work and so on. It all works fine in Chrome.

None of this has happened before, I haven't added anything new, just the regular Firefox updates. I am on a Windows 10 computer and Firefox version 62.0

Thank you.

Lately, when I access accuweather.com, I get a popup on every page asking me to allow ads on accuweather. When I click the box to allow ads, it asks me to click the adblock plus icon - but I don't HAVE that icon. I don't have an adblocker installed. So, every page of accuweather repeatedly show this popup. How do I solve this? It doesn't happen in Safari.

I can no longer open embedded videos on the two sites listed below, videos which are redirected from YouTube via an email notification subscription (I suspect it is the same with Vimeo and other such related sites). I have tried many suggestions here on the support pages but nothing seems to work.

1. The documentary listed here on the Top Documentary Films site will not open when clicked on - https://topdocumentaryfilms.com/9-11-war-games/ - however, it works fine when clicked directly on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3noExmsCRyg

2. Videos on the Climate Crocks website no longer work, showing simply a blank space where the link usually would be. The video link embedded here does not link or redirect - https://climatecrocks.com/2018/09/18/jennifer-francis-how-climate-and-ice-melt-intensify-hurricanes/ - however, after finding the video link in the "View Page Info" drop down and going directly to the YouTube URL - https://www.youtube.com/embed/cZTiFA39T8I - the video plays normally!

Note that these are embedded links within email notifications!

I understand the basic concepts of tracking protection but I've been unable to find answers to a few specific questions. I found some documentation here in the questions / answers section but it didn't provide all the answers.

1. Do I need to clear existing cookies to remove the myriad of sites already tracking me before turning on tracking protection? Or, will turning it on do an immediate filter on my existing cookies?

2. Will turning off tracking stop sites that I want to retain login information for from retaining the "login" cookie infor i.e. are we close to a full "cookie block" with anti-tracking? Or does FFox have some creative algorithm (or list) that allows it to distinguish between tracking cookies and less offensive cookies? Concurrently, is there a way to allow a "tracking cookie" if I need it to retain information for a site I'm comfortable with?

3. One specific tracking question: Will eliminating tracking cookies stop (specifically) Google's cross site advertising, where you look at a product on site A (who shares that info via google) and then a little later google's advertising mechanism pops up those products when you're at site B?
