"This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised" messages started on last update, wont disable

more options

Latest Firefox update 104.0 started displaying "This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised" again after previously being disabled. It's an annoying message that pops up on my intranet logins and I want it disabled again. I did the usual in about:config and set security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled to False and security.insecure_password.ui.enabled to False like previously, but the message is still there. It seems that latest update is forcing this message and ignoring the settings to disable them. Please help!

Support for security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled has been removed in Firefox 104, so it is no longer possible to hide this warning. You can click the trash icon at the far right on its line on the about:config page. Support for security.insecure_password.ui.enabled has been removed quite some time ago (76), so you can reset this pref as well.

So you're saying there's absolutely no way to remove this message? I use Firefox to access several integrated systems in a segregated network. I can't change the systems to use HTTPS. Being able to turn off the message would be very helpful.

You could consider to use Firefox 102 ESR (102.2.0) for accessing those website. Use the version selector for ESR 102.

If necessary use Sync to keep its separate profile synced.

This is kinda...well...dumb. Why get rid of the users ability to disable something so large, and for some of us, meaningless, setting? I'm on a damn intranet and it's flagging me as being insecure. I just don't understand why Mozilla chose to stealthily remove the ability for its users to disable it, while leaving the line in the settings as if it did something. It's a useless removal of control where it didn't need to be removed.

Maybe it is possible to use code in userChrome.css to hide this notification.

Thank you for response. So, I must use crutchs, such as an install obsolete version of browser, or studying the details of the browser that I don’t need. I really can't understand this decision.

Looks like time is come to move to another browser...

I do not see the warning if I disable the Password Manager and instead use "Use Saved Login/Password" in the right-click context menu.

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Logins and Passwords -> [] "Ask to save Logins and Passwords for websites"

Unfortunally it doesn't help for me

Some background for all of us who are landing here:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1773047 Tom Ritter [:tjr] Reporter It's been on for several years, do we need to support turning it off anymore? Sergey Galich [:serg] Assignee I do not think we need the way to turn it off. It's browser's job to alert user of potential trouble.

And that's it, folks! You want it - you get it. At least, we have insight into the most modern development philospohy of the mozilla team: „we code for US, not for the masses.“ - thanks.

-scnr-

-.-

Guys - you are not „supporting“ anything here, it is just one of those dozens of options which could be edited by users like me who wanted the software the way they knew it from old days. Users who are in knowledge of the technical background of the displayed message and just want to get rid of it. You aren't supporting any installation with non-default about:config, so what's the point, Tom Ritter?

Just bring it back, please!

Kind regards Mathias
