Firefox 86 "Total Cookie Protection": I want no "automatic exceptions"

Quoted from: https://www.theregister.com/2021/02/24/firefox_cookies_86/ ..."it's Total Cookie Protection With Some Exceptions, Handled Automatically" ..."Meanwhile, Google and its ad tech frenemies are racing to develop various Privacy Sandbox proposals so they can implement behavioral ad targeting"

I don't WANT exceptions! Behavioral ad targeting is exactly what I'm trying to avoid. I don't want Google shaping my searches and influencing my opinions by "telling me what I want to hear"...it thinks! Total Cookie Protection sounded exciting until I read this. How do we force it to work "without automatic exceptions"?

I was excited about this new feature because it might allow me to stay logged in to sites like Google and Amazon without their infamous tracking and search-shaping. If not this setting is pretty useless.

Hy all,I can't access youtube.com. When I try Mozilla says:

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.youtube.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.youtube.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

ANY FIX? TNX!

Hi. Has anyone ever had this problem where Firefox suddenly does not work even after reinstalling it?

I updated my Nvidia drivers to 461.40 and when I opened Firefox, it just came up with a blank white window.

I tried entering Safe mode by holding down the Shift button and opening it again but it just hung on the safe mode window that comes up. Tried pressing the buttons but nothing happened.

I thought it must have been the Nvidia update that's done this but I rolled back to the previous version and now Firefox won't even open. It just shows up as a process in task manager.

I've uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

Am I missing something?

Is there something in the old profiles that's preventing Firefox to open again?

I believe I was using Firefox 86, running Windows 10 Home.

When trying to use Google meet, Firefox asks for permission to use the mic from my webcam (Logitech Pro9000) but not video. The only video option shown for permissions is my NDI source. The Logitech is nowhere to be found in the pull-down. Works fine in Edge, Windows Camera, etc.

Reviewed "Sheribee" earlier issue which apparently involved a VPN. I do not have a VPN but have tried several times in the past week to access IRS refund status site without success. I can get into irs.gov, but am unsuccessful in accessing the refund status site after entering required input data. The issue has occurred only this past week.

I'm unaware of IRS issues causing this problem.

Have not had this issue on any other sites; and I have successful retrieved data in prior years.

I am not saving any sign on protocols with the irs or any other sites.

Running Windows 10. Thanks for any help. BTW I did get refund information using the telephone, but I want to ensure there's not a hidden conflict of some sort with FireFox. Thanks for any help.

I am constantly frustrated by unresponsive pages / script warnings etc using Firefox. This never used to happen on previous builds -- I am using the latest 86.0 -- but these occur so often that I am about to say goodbye to Firefox. This does not happen when I am using Chrome and other browsers.

I have been through all of the suggested steps to deal with these unresponsive script/page issues, and none has worked.

Would appreciate any help on this, but as I say I am about to leave Firefox at this point for Chrome and other browsers.

Thanks in advance...

I can't find a way to enlarge the font size in menu or bookmarks toolbar, or the drop down menu and the bookmarks themselves. It is ridiculously miniscule and I have to use a magnifier to see it - I have Fuchs Dystrophy so my eyesight varies from day to day, but 16-18 size is usually ok. Can anyone point the way if any please?

Many thanks Teresa

I have installed Mozilla VPN and used it a couple of times on my laptop to ue. I have also paid for it I think, I certainly provided my card details. All this happened earlier this week. I am trying to use it on my tablet. Help says go to this link (vpn.etc) , login to your account and then download VPN. Sounds good but it doesn't happen - instead I'm asked to start a subscription and give my card details and agree to a second lot of charges. I don't think it's a confidence trick but it could be. I signed up for Mozilla VPN on the understanding that I could use it on 5 devices or profiles. Hope you can sort me out, thanks.

I have changed the settings in about:config, and also with options in the tools menu on Firefox, and I am still having problems, specifically with Fox News, but also other sites that allow a video to automatically play and blast audio. It is very disconcerting that there doesn't seem to be a way to stop this from happening. Can you help? I am using Firefox 86.
