Firefox does not connect to "google.de" or "amazon.de" do to "HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS)". First I cleaned the "Firefox" (about:config). Then I deinstalled and reinstalled it. No change in behavior. I started with an empty "SiteSecurityServiceState.txt" Anyway still no connection possible to "google.de" or "amazon.de". I would be glad if anyone could help me.

BS is WIN10 Version 20H2 (Version 21H1 could not be loaded yet --> mistake while installing. I am still waiting for a solution to this problem via MS)

Sorry for my humble English.

I keep getting emails from ojode@noboland.com. I have never responded because I believe they are dangerous. I have fixed it so that they always go to "junk". Is there any way I can stop them coming to my Thunderbird application in the first place?

My ISP = SBCGlobal.net; My email app = v 78.11.0 of Thunderbird; I also use the latest v of Firefox.

My problem is with TB, which will neither send nor receive emails; Msg = "Sending password for user me@sbcglobal.net did not succeed. Mail server inbound.att.net responded: Server error, please try again later." This was two days ago. I found my TB login info at tools>options>privacy&security>passwords. I cannot figure out where to go to change / reset the login password at ATT

My question is this: To fix this problem, do I change my PW on my system, then do the same at the SBC/ATT end to make the inbound.att.net server aware of the change? Is this how I should proceed? FYI: I'm a tech dippie. I need help. Tks

P.S.: I don't have an ATT account.

My bank (cibc.com) has recently started randomly sending a code which hs to be entered to login. The problem is it happens to me every single logon, even if I logon, enter the sent code, logoff then immediately logon on again. I have disabled tracking protection for the site ( the shield icon) but no change. I only use ublock origin and have disabled it for my banking site. But there is no change. Every logon the bank insists on sending a code to allow a logon.

I am at my wits end and about to start using Chrome to see if that works.

Some websites have this text box under their articles to write a comment and post it on Facebook (see the screenshot). But for that to happen, first you must login to your Facebook account. The problem is that when I click the button "login to post", nothing happens - as if I didn't click it at all. I suspect the reason for that are the integrated anti-tracking options in Firefox 89. So the question is: how do I get this plugin to work in Firefox 89?

P.S. Until a month ago I was temporarily using Chromium as default browser and there the FB plugin had no issues. Chromium has no anti-tracking options which is why I think this function in Firefox is the reason for the FB plugin not to work.

I'm getting the below message on certain websites (www.planetf1.com for example), when trying to view comments. I've got uBlock Origin and Dark Reader installed, but disabling uBlock doesn't seem to fix the issue.

Anyone know how I can allow this? Also is it a massive security issue if I do allow it?

I was using an unprotected wifi for about 3 days and now I have unknown programs running and sometimes commond prompt boxes suddenly poping up and dissapearing. I'm nolonger using the computer and I'm changing all my passwords just in case. (not getting FF to remember them)

But there are unknown usernames and passwords in my synced passwords. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/930340 Does this mean the hacker has all my FF passwords and can access it anywhere and anytime if I change them is sync? Should I make a new Sync account?

I'm looking for non-social Firefox edition or version. I want to follow the latest FF updates, but without any integrated services like social spyware and any other kind of malware. Options disable / enable are not sufficient to be safe and security in Firefox is corrupted by social API.

Social services and features must be implemented only as a simple optional extensions and nothing more.

When I try to access this US military site, https://www.tricareonline.com/portal/page/portal/TricareOnline/Portal I get a warning that this site can't be trusted. I then get a notice to override Firefox if I trust the site. I get a certificate, override, and finally get the site. But this has happened a half dozen or so times, every time I try to log in to the military site. How can I log into this site without the annoying warnings?

Thanks, Donald Sullivan

A newspaper website asked if I wanted to tell them my location. Firfox popped up and asked if I wanted to automatically tell sites that ask my geographic location. I clicked and got more information. There was a section that gave instructions to permanently disable geographic location tracking. I followed the directions to disable, even though the default is no tracking. I had to type an two words with a : separating them into the address bar. This brought me to a long list of settings. I followed the directions but now it seems my location is being tracked by everyone.

How do I get back to this list of settings (which was not accessed through Options) to go back to the default?

Hi,

I'm using firefox for several years, but recently i discovered a weird effect on one of my computers, which was consistent across many FF versions (up to the recent version 17 now). All drop down menus on facebook were not working for me. On one pc I can click on the red globe, and a menu opens - while on the other pc nothing happened. Now I was able to reproduce it.

As soon as I activate the "ask how long cookies are stored" option in the privacy settings, the drop down menus wont work/show. Choosing the default "Keep them as long as they are valid" reenables the drop down menus.

I really like the cookie storage time option so i can decide which website will remember me.
