I found some infos but I do not trust myself just deleting the files in question since they ared all over my system. The following I found per malwarebytes which found the pups every day up to now:

PUP.Optional.DefaultSearch is Malwarebytes’ detection name for a family of browser hijackers targeting Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Symptoms The browsers’ default search engine was changed to one that belonged to the threat-actors. I am german so probably I need your patience in helping me to clean my system resp. Mozilla.

Looking forward Ingrid

All of a sudden I have to log in to all the common websites I use such as Yahoo mail. It could have been something I changed but I don't know what. From what I understand it may have something to do with the setting Cookies and site data. I think that if the box that says "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is checked then the log ins will not be remembered. The problem I have is that particular setting is ticked and it is shaded and I cant uncheck it. Can someone provide a simple solution please?

When i click on the lock icon in the address bar, nothing happens (I would expect to see the encryption and certificate, but no widget opens). When I right-click into the page and select "View Page Info", "Security", "View Certificate", no certificate exists. Only generic info is shown (Servers+Authorities). Also an error is reported in the system log, confirming that no certificate exists: JavaScript error: chrome://browser/content/browser-siteIdentity.js, line 642: TypeError: issuerCert is undefined

Questions:

  • Why does Firefox show the lock icon while no certificate exists?
  • How does Firefox establish a secure connection without having a certificate? (From my understanding a certificate is needed for TLS to work.)

Version used: Firefox 78.12.0esr ('Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0'), no add-ons or plugins.

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm unable to save my username and passwords. I read that it could be that I had upgraded to a new version of Firefox. Apparently, I had previously downloaded Firefox a while ago and just recently reinstalled it. I guess it remembered. I check marked all the password settings and it still won't save at all. It said that I should downgrade to a previous version 68. Then, it asked which browser and that's where I'm stuck.

Can someone please help?

Thank you!

About a week ago, Firefox began occasionally opening a webpage or even my Google login window in some random language. Opening a new tab and closing the errant tab would result in the same page opening correctly in English. The language used when Firefox erred was never the same twice. In the last couple days the rate of errors has accelerated. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Is someone other than me using my Firefox credentials?

I want to disable all of the automatic suggestions and autocomplete functions. I am totally blind, and I have recently had problems with a suggestion appear which was wrong! I entered my four-digit address, and the autosuggestions popped up several addresses - ALL OF WHICH WERE WRONG! I was very annoyed arrowing through the items, listening to them spoken, and finding that NONE of them were correct. I got lost in one of those darned suggestion systems while finalizing an order and eventually closed Firefox and started the process over. I had those darned suggestions turned off at one time, but they must have come back on when the last update occurred. So i want to fix Firefox so that it will simply let me type in the needed information - address, or whatever is needed - with no suggestions popping up - hopefully so they will stay off PERMANENTLY!

Hello I have used Firefox since 2016 and back then I had stored some passwords on the browser (without a Firefox account). After some time my PC hard drive stopped working, and I still had passwords saved on the browser. Afterwards I managed to get a new PC set up, which after a few years started to break down. This time, before the device had fully stopped working, I decided to uninstall Firefox. I realized afterwards that a folder had been created on my desktop named 'old Firefox data'. I managed to see my saved passwords in a folder. But bringing back the talk about passwords on my old hard drive, are they saved on some kind of database? I would like to remove all my past data as it helps with my obsessive compulsive disorder. Also, about the 'old Firefox data' folder, did my saved passwords also save on any database after uninstalling Firefox? Thanks

A week ago I started using a primary password for FF. I learned it by heart, also copied it to my iPhone in a safe notation (I have access to the notation using my finger print). It worked just fine for the first days. Today I tried to use the primary password again, in order to enter a website, but somehow FF denies me entrance, again and again. No spelling issues or missing characters, because I copy the primary password from my iPhone notation and paste it into the primary password field on my Mac. In FF Lockwise (on my iPhone) I can also still see my primary FF password, which is exactly the same. Typing it down character by character doesn’t solve the problem, nor does restarting FF. Caps lock is off. No issues with my keyboard. In my privacy and security setting I cannot to stop FF from asking my primary password, because (of course also there) it won’t recognize the primary password I enter...

There is no one who knows about my primary password nor has anyone access to my computer or iPhone. So there is no way I could explain somebody to have been able to change my primary password. Could anybody please explain to me what might be going on? Did other people experience the same issue? What steps should I take to try to solve it?

And I surely wish not to need to reset my primary password, because I will lose all my saved passwords from FF... Happily I still have access to FF Lockwise on my iPhone (using my finger print). So I could still copy each password and save it somewhere else. But that would mean quite a lot of work. Besides of that I don’t trust it to work better next time I set up a primary FF password…

I hope I explained my problem well enough. Thanks in advance for trying to help me out!

Hi, I've been using Firefox as my default browser for years, this week I have started to see Secure Connection Failed pages when I try and connect to websites. There is a Try Again button and this always directs me to the correct page.


Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.bbc.co.uk. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem.

This problem happens from Favourites, links from other websites or URLs passed from applications etc. I'm on the latest version of Firefox 92.0 64bit.

I'm not seeing any similar issues on other browsers (Chrome and Edge)

Any idea why this has just started happening and what I can do to stop it?

Many thanks Richard

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.

I just added the "Word Count" add-on. I am supposed to be able to select text on any site, right click and a notification will let me know the word count of the text.

Here is my problem: When I select text and right click, I see "Word Count" it as an option, but I don't get a notification when I click on it.

So far I have:

-disabled and enabled the add-on. -gone to the notification settings. I only see an option to add a website--no option to make an exception for an add-on. -restarted firefox and am using the latest version.

Also: I don't have any other add-ons.

Can you help me? Thanks!
