Preventing Google from accessing home IP address

Hello, Q1: Is there a way to prevent Google search engine from accessing and sharing the city I live in via my IP address?

Q2: Can I block my IP address from Amazon, Google and other shareware/spyware garbage AND still access and use the internet?

At the bottom of a Google search result page I can read the city I live in based on my IP address. I would rather not have this shared as I search for products in different stores. I am signed into Google.

When I ran the "Privacy tab" in Firefox the Google search results still showed the city I live in.

I use a VPN, three security extensions("No-Script, Privacy-Badger & FaceBook Container) and Mozilla Firefox set at the "Strict" Browser Privacy level.

Thank you for reviewing these questions, Oliver

Disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer

You can also set a different third-party PDF viewer to handle PDF files, instead of Firefox’s built-in PDF viewer. To switch from using the built-in PDF viewer to another viewer: 1. Click the menu button and select . 2. In the panel, go down to the Applications section. (SO WHERE IN THE HELL IS THIS SECTION???) YOU CAN'T DO I never selected Mozilla to open any pdf and there's no where to opt out or change based on what all the troubleshooting tips say... All these tips must be located on a much older version of Firefox cause they ain't in my version OR they are hid under some dubious section... Pretty frustrating....when you want to use Adobe and can't cause I'm locked in under Firefox....don't know how that has happened unless it was done automatically under one of the many current upgrades that have been coming down over the last month.

In the past, when you opened up private browsing, it seamlessly integrated itself into your browser, being indistinguishable. At a glance, no one would know you were private browsing; it blended in.

In a recent update, Mozilla did something unthinkable and made private browsing an isolated instance from Firefox. This, of course, results in a purple flare in the taskbar in front of the entire world that you are private browsing.

I don't understand who thought this was a good idea. I want to know how to undo this horrible change.

See the screenshot where you can't see any information on all my open Firefox windows, except for my private browsing window.

I am using Firefox 107.0.1 on a Windows 10 machine. And, I am not able to login to the SSA website (US) using Firefox. I reviewed the answers in the post (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354403) and tried several of the possible solutions (safe mode, rename/delete profile, reboot computer, etc) without any luck. I've attached a screenshot of the error when trying to login using Firefox.

Strangely, I've used Firefox exclusively to login (latest, maybe 6 months ago) before with no problem. It appears it is only when I currently am using Firefox. This is because I am able to use MS Edge without a problem.

Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you, Chris

Hi, I planned to block my users from installing extensions/add-ons. I found an article that might be the answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1308646). I tried to create a simple policy (below), but somehow it does not work (I can still install any add-on/extension). What is wrong with my script? I'm using Firefox ESR 78.11.0 (64-bit) by the way.

My "policies.json" looks like this:

{

"policies": {
  "ExtensionSettings": {
    "*": {
      "blocked_install_message": "Blocked!",
      "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/"],
      "installation_mode": "blocked"
    }
  }
}

Is there anyway to make a Hotkey for our Autoplay function, instead of having to go into Settings, each time we need the function?

In my experience, I have it set to Block both Video and Sound, but this blocks simple pronunciations, in Search or Translations. I hope there some way, a command, a mod or a setting allowing a Hotkey or Icon for Fast Disable/Enable.

Thanks for all your work and making the internet safer for everyone.

I have unsubscribed from all newsletter after receiving the first email but days later I'm still getting emails from Firefox (e.g. Superpower #4: See if your info has been leaked).

This is an incredibly bad user experience and to my knowledge illegal in the EU.

I'm probably still within that journey but the journey should terminate the moment I clicked unsubscribed.

Hi,

I have today logged in to a specific webpage on my energy providers website and find that Firefox does NOT display the option to open a chat which is clearly displayed in the Chrome Browser (Screenshots attached).

I have navigated to "Settings/Privacy & Security", scrolled down to "Permissions" and can confirm that the "Block pop-up windows" option is NOT enabled.

I am obviously missing a setting somewhere, can anyone advise?

Thanks

Hi. FF 107.0 64bit Up until yesterday I could open Facebook in a normal window, but yesterday it only opened to a white screen with a top banner with the FB logo on the left and grey circles on the right. I searched on here and Google and found this was a fairly kcommon problem. I opened FB in a Private window and all was well. I could also open FB in MS Edge no problem. I have tried the recommended guide to Settings> Privacy> clear cache/data/cached web content>clear. No change, still white screen in a normal window. As far as I remember I have not changed any setting or even gone into tools for sometime. I am at a loss as to what to do. Seems many others have this problem and have not been able to find a solution which does not give me much confidence. I am on Win10 fully updated.

Hello,

this topic is about two things.

1. How do I reset the data of the built-in Protections Dashboard without resetting all of Firefox?

2. and probably more complicated, how do I stop Firefox from checking for "Login breach information"?

I do already have and always had "Show alerts about passwords for breached web sites" in options disabled. Still the Dashboard shows that "1 password stored securely.".

Mozilla says "[i]Firefox Monitor warns you if your online accounts were involved in a known data breach. For more information, see Firefox Password Manager - Alerts for breached websites. To get the latest login breach information and more, Firefox connects to firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com/i"

So now I've gone as far as blocking "firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com" through HOSTS. Still the Dashboard shows that "1 password stored securely.".

Why is it still checking? How is it still checking? How do I stop this?

NOTE: I recently had to reset FF due to the installation being corrupted during the install of an upgrade. I believe I have restored most of my settings on topics like access to microphones, push-notification requests, and the like, but I may have missed something relative to this. (When I first shut down all requests for push notifications, I believe it was still required to do so via about:config.)

Nie połączono: potencjalne zagrożenie bezpieczeństwa

Firefox wykrył potencjalne zagrożenie bezpieczeństwa i nie wczytał „www.google.com”, ponieważ strona wymaga bezpiecznego połączenia.

Co zrobić w takim przypadku?

Witryna „www.google.com” określa poprzez HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security), że Firefox ma się z nią łączyć jedynie w sposób zabezpieczony. Dodanie wyjątku w celu odwiedzenia tej witryny jest niemożliwe.

Problem leży prawdopodobnie po stronie witryny i nie masz możliwości jego rozwiązania.

Jeśli połączono poprzez sieć firmową lub używasz oprogramowania antywirusowego, możesz spróbować skontaktować się z zespołem wsparcia. Możesz również powiadomić administratora strony o problemie.

Więcej informacji…

Ktoś może próbować podszywać się pod tę witrynę. Odradzamy kontynuowanie.

Witryny potwierdzają swoją tożsamość poprzez certyfikaty. Firefox nie ufa certyfikatowi witryny „www.google.com”, ponieważ jego wystawca jest nieznany, jest samopodpisany lub serwer nie przesyła właściwych certyfikatów pośrednich.

Kod błędu: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

Wyświetl certyfikat Nic więcej nie mogę zrobić a to strona GOogle !! nic nie mogę wyszukać ani znaleść proszę o pomoc jak to zmienić aby to działało , youtobe też nie chodzi ten sam błąd!! proszę o pomoc Krzysztof
