Unknown exception (Website) placed in "Warn you when websites try to install add-ons"

Posted

https://private-network.firefox.com is listed as an exception in Allowed Websites - Add-ons Installation. Is this supposed to be here, when I installed Firefox this section was blank?

Yes, you can remove this exception. This is merely about installing an extension from this domain.

You can possibly check the extensions listed on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page under Firefox Features and Extensions further down.

A Google search shows that this is related to a VPN service. *https://www.google.com/search?sa=N&q=%22private-network.firefox.com%22 *https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/protonvpn *https://www.ghacks.net/2018/10/21/mozilla-tests-premium-vpn-service/

That's weird because I don't use a vpn and have never purchased one. Plus I don't think a vpn would work very well with my connection since I'm using satellite internet. Would you advise me to just remove that site since I don't know how it got there or why it's there?

I seen no reference to private-network in the about:support page in the areas you mentioned.

Thank you very much for your advice cor-el, I will go ahead and remove the domain from Allowed Websites - Add-ons Installation.
