Firefox Daylight (94.1.2) > Secret Settings > Use third party CA certificates (Allows the use of third party certificates from the Android CA store)

1. Hay dispositivos con Sistema Operativo Android que NO disponen de la posibilidad de instalar certificados en el Almacenamiento del Usuario.

1. There are devices with Android Operating System that DO NOT have the possibility of installing certificates in the User's Storage.

2. Parece que Firefox NO reconoce y acepta aquellos certificados que hayan sido instalados en el Almacenamiento del Sistema.

2. It seems that Firefox does NOT recognize and accept those certificates that have been installed in the System Storage.

Digo "parece que no" porque desconozco la raíz del problema. Sin embargo, así viene sucediendo desde que aparecieron las "Secret Settings": Firefox NO atiende los certificados instalados en el Almacenamiento del Sistema.

I say "it seems not" because I do not know the root of the problem. However, this has been the case since the "Secret Settings" appeared: Firefox does NOT serve the certificates installed in the System Storage.

Y esto origina un gran problema a todos los usuarios de Firefox cuyos dispositivos Android sólo permiten instalar certificados en el Almacenamiento del Sistema.

And this causes a big problem for all Firefox users whose Android devices only allow to install certificates in the System Storage.

En esa situación, Firefox no funciona correctamente cuando debe interactuar con otra magnífica aplicación como es AdGuard AdBlocker.

In that situation, Firefox does not work properly when it must interact with another magnificent application such as AdGuard AdBlocker.

Por favor, observen que no hablo de AdGuard como "add-on" de Firefox...

Please, note that I do not speak of AdGuard as a Firefox "add-on"...

Y, por lo que más queráis, os ruego que, aunque el planteamiento de este problema pueda ser algo difícil de comprender, pongáis toda vuestra atención en el hecho de que Firefox parece fallar a la hora de utilizar cualquier certificado que haya sido almacenado en el Sistema.

And, for what you want more, I beg you that, although the approach to this problem may be somewhat difficult to understand, put all your attention on the fact that Firefox seems to fail to use any certificate that has been stored in the System.

Sólo trato de advertir a todos sobre este gran fallo con la esperanza de que ustedes, los de Mozilla, puedan y quieran arreglarlo.

I'm just trying to warn everyone about this big bug in the hope that you, guys at Mozilla, can and will fix it.

Hello, i've recently made the switch from Chrome to Firefox. However, I am someone who enjoys playing games in their browser. And it occured to me, that firefox seemingly lags and stutters whenever i try to play a game.

The two games i have tested are Zombs Royale and Wormax IO. These are two very minimalistic games with nothing much to them. The slowest computers can handle them...

I have a GTX 1080, with 12 gb of rams. I also tested on my laptop, which has unknown specs, but 4gb of ram.

Both devices performed worse then how they would perform in chromium based browsers. I wish to stick with firefox, as i hear security is a virtue with Mozilla, and Chrome really just wants to steal your data.

I might add, that i did follow a couple steps to make my browser more secure, I didn't disable stuff like webgl, but i disabled a bunch of other settings, here is the video i followed:

https://youtu.be/xxWXLlfqNAo

I did install a few add-ons, such as Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere, and nightTab(I had this on chrome, and without it i feel home sick.)

I am unsure why these problems occur, as far as i know, my computer should be able to handle this.

I cannot find any other questions related to this, and it is really odd to me. I should also mention, Firefox is also quite slow anyways, it just feels slower than chrome, so i'm unsure if it's an optimization issue or what, but this occurs on all of my computers.

I hope someone can help me thank you.

After receiving an email about lockwise absorption, I thought I would try changing my firefox account password. Mainly that was because I do not see any other way to log into another mac system without it. I can sync an ios device with the qr code scan but not another mac system.

So from the account profile I went to Change Password and changed the password to some new securely generated password.

Now in my saved passwords, I see that the new password is saved for "(no username)" account and the old password is still there for my user name.

But when I try to log into FF browser on another mac system with my user name, neither password works. They are both "incorrect".

After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.

Version 94.0.2 (64-bit) Windows 10

Hi.

A few times in Settings I selected History->Never remember history, yet upon reopening the browser the setting was changed to "Use custom settings for history" and "Always use private mode." Why is this happening?

The larger issue is Cached Web Content (CWC), which doesn't completely delete like everything else. No matter the settings to delete everything upon closing or never remember, every time I reopen FF and click Clear Data there is some data in CWC (albeit in kb). I've read many pages and posts here and it's still not clear: A) Why isn't it 0 bytes and B) If a previously visited site can access the CWC, then isn't that a strike against privacy?

Sincerley,

Hank

I have a duplicate Firefox account that I would like to close.

I forgot the password for this account, and when I go to https://accounts.firefox.com/reset_password to reset it, I enter my email address for the account I'd like to log into and it fails every time with the message "Primary account email required for reset".

The API response includes the error message "Reset password with this email type is not currently supported".

My account email address ends in @hey.com. Is this domain not allowed for password resets?

In Windows 10, the upgrade from Thunderbird 91.1.0 to 91.1.1 fixed a couple of notification problems. However, the verion 91.1.1 brings with it a new problem - the number of 'new' emails shown in the badge is incorrect. TB actually shows (new emails) x (number of times server is checked since last download). Clearly someone has forgotten to reset a counter somewhere. I have TB server setting set to scan every 15 minutes. If I receive 1 new email but do not download for say 50 minutes, then TB will simply show that I have 3 new emails (=3 scans, 15 minutes apart) instead of 1.

I have been trying to locate the temporary file of the failed download video file. I was downloading a huge video file (78 GB) and the system froze in the middle of it. So I was forced to cut the power and restart the laptop. After restarting, I saw that my system drive is still filled with the temporary file (part), but I couldn't locate it and delete the temp file. It has taken up about 40 GB of my system drive space because the download was more than half way through.

When I started the download, I selected an external drive as the destination. However, I have been observing Firefox download behavior and I am pretty sure Firefox would download as much of the file to system drive as possible, until the system drive is full, then moving onto the destination drive, which has been a huge inconvenience, because of the huge video files that I am dealing with.

I have already cleared the file and the .part in the destination drive, but failed to locate the rest of the temp file in my system drive. I have searched the internet and found no mention of such problem. So I am seeking professional help here.

Attached is a screenshot showing how much space is used by checking the system drive properties, against the properties of all files in system drive (including hidden). The number doesn't add up, and there are 52 GB of files unlocated.

When entering credit card info in a web form, Firefox will pop up a dialog asking if I'd like to save the card info. If I click yes, the dialog closes but the info is not saved. If I go into settings where one can view the saved cards and enter the info to save a new one, I can enter one but again it does not actually save. There is no error, it just doesn't save. Tailing journalctl shows no errors, and launching Firefox from a console and watching the output doesn't show any error either.

It's been this way over several updates over the course of a few months (as long as I've been using Firefox on this computer).
