Authorization for studies is unchecked on my account. When I notice that I participated in 2 remote-studies without me knowing anything about it, nor when it was done, nor why :

T =TopSites Launch Phase 3 - US v2•Terminée TopSites + Redirect Launch T=TopSites Launch Phase 3 - GB•Terminée TopSites Redirect Launch

 Why is Firefox doing  remote-studies from 2 continents on my account without my consent? nor telling me anything about it? 

It is true that I've been redirected using Firefox for quite a while with no idea why (not a good grade as far as privacy is concerned...).

I added a few exceptions for internal servers with self-signed certificates via Settings->Security->Show Certificates->Server->Add Exception (permanent exceptions). But these exceptions do not prevent the certificate warning on first connect, after restarting firefox I always need to allow a exception for all of these servers (I have mutiple tabs with monitoring / management sites for some servers open). How to get rid of the warning ? (I can't use let's encrypt certificates on the server, because the server have no internet connection.). Additional: In the german version of the certificate management dialog are certificate name ("Zertifikatsname") and server name ("Servername") column headings (or data) exchanged, the "certificate name" column shows the server name and vice versa.

I had to uninstall and reinstall Firefox due to some issues, after reinstalling, sites I used to access such as Facebook or Gmail for instance, always stop to ask for username/password. The password manager has it already ready, but you have to click on it now, instead of going directly to the site. How can I change it back? Nothing seems to exist under options/password and security. Thanks

The website, Radio Garden, doesn't even allow you to register, much less input passwords or credit cards. If any, the creator of this site only collects data for analysis reasons, that's really about it. Radio Garden is a site that lets you listen to radio stations around the world without the need of ever registering at all (and through mobile, users can pay a small fee to rid of intrusive ads, but not actual, radio station ads in which they have no control of). Can the guys at Firefox know that Radio Garden is NOT an illegitimate site and flag it as secure and safe instead? Thanks.

And yes, there have been sites that are flagged as false positive because Firefox, along with other browsers, like to get incredibly touchy for no apparent reason.

Hi Forum Folke,

Been having issues with "security exceptions" when logging into my ISP's email service (doesn't happen with gmail, for some reason), and in looking into the issue, I found a TON of certifications when I opened up "Manage Certifications." I don't recognize a single one, and there's a lot of certifications from China, of all places. Do I need all these certifications? If I just delete them all, will ThunderBird crash or become unuseable? I really don't like all these totally unknown certifications installed without my knowledge, and if they don't NEED to be there, I'd rather delete them. Thanks!

These days more and more people are being tricked into clicking on a false or dangerous url behind a link in a mail. When you receive a mail you can always hover on the link to see where it is actually going. But soms mails contain many links. I asked myself: why not make it possible to see all links at once, for example by pressing the mouse wheel or someting else, so you can see in one view where all the different links are going. I would program it myself, but I have nor the time, nor the expertise right now to do it. Is anybody interested in further developing this idea?

My Private Internet Access VPN does not have access to your browser following recent update. Here's my VPN instructions to reconnect: Firefox has recently changed the way addons handle proxy connection. Allowing the addon to run in Private Windows is now required for proxy settings to be updated.

Please visit the URL below to view you addons page. Then click on the "Private Internet Access" addon to modify its settings. From here, change the "Run in Private Windows" setting to "Allow".

I go to addons page but there is no Private Internet Access addon to open.......................... How do I get to clicking on "Allow"? Thanks.

Hi, I just discovered a problem setting secondary email when both primary and secondary is on the same domain, gmail.com.

Following the instructions:

Set up secondary email

The error that come up says that the secondary email must be different than my account email, but it is, the only common thing is the domain.

So this is a bug, please fix.

in this reference https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000063.htm#firefox it indicates that you can add, change or delete saved passwords by selecting the hamburger menu (3 parallel lines) followed by Preferences > Privacy and Security then navigate down to Forms and Autofill. However, in this version (FF 88.0.1 (64 bit) for Ubuntu), there is no such option listed.

I have some mistaken email addresses saved in the system (somewhere) which I would like to correct/delete as appropriate but am having an issue finding them.

Is there a hidden option somewhere in the system where I can access these to make the necessary amendments?

Hi, It appears my firefox account was comprimised, and they where able to gain access to all stored info and saved logins casuing major damage.

All accounts have since been secured, and in process of recovery from effected sites.

With the browsing history logs, it looks like it has tabs for the date it was added and when it was last modified, but not actively used, are these meant to be by default?

It would also be a nice feature to see which device was used to access the webpage, as i have had to wipe 2 computers as a precaution in case the either was hacked into, if i could of seen which one, this might of been preventable

If it could say for example Site Device Added YouTube My Device 1 12-05-2021 Gmail My Device 2 11-05-2021 Amazon unknown device 11-05-2021

Action can be taken sooner

Looks like feedback site is undergoing changes, so i can't suggest there.

Something happened to Firefox over the weekend-- update or otherwise. Lost all my tabs. Had to uninstall and reinstall. Re-do all my settings. Re-set all my pinned tabs for work. Now I can't get into Asana, a project management tool I use for work daily and have used for years, because of the below security message. I've tried everything I can think of but can't get Firefox to open Asana.

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

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

What can you do about it?

app.asana.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.

When using the "Checkout with PayPal" button on websites the PayPal popup window appears however it's impossible to progress to the checkout. When I then use Edge and do my purchase through there, the PayPal popup window allows me to enter my info and then proceed to PayPal with no problem at all.

I have added paypal.com into exclusions for 'Block pop-up windows' and Enhanced Tracking Protection

But, I want to be able to use Firefox! I do not want to be forced into having to use Edge for purchase payments using PayPal. I am not a techie and would like a simple solution w/o having to get into modifying any programming files. S.O.S.
