I browsed a clothing website for less than 5 minutes by typing in the address and not using any links. Shortly after I receive an email asking if I was still interested in what I was looking at. Does Firefox share my email address with websites I'm visiting? I believe the email is coming from SafeOpt, not the website I visited. I do have "do not track" options selected in Firefox.

Firefox reports a secure connection without existing certificate

When i click on the lock icon in the address bar, nothing happens (I would expect to see the encryption and certificate, but no widget opens). When I right-click into the page and select "View Page Info", "Security", "View Certificate", no certificate exists. Only generic info is shown (Servers+Authorities). Also an error is reported in the system log, confirming that no certificate exists: JavaScript error: chrome://browser/content/browser-siteIdentity.js, line 642: TypeError: issuerCert is undefined

Questions:

  • Why does Firefox show the lock icon while no certificate exists?
  • How does Firefox establish a secure connection without having a certificate? (From my understanding a certificate is needed for TLS to work.)

Version used: Firefox 78.12.0esr ('Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0'), no add-ons or plugins.

Firefox Browser Flaw

I am unable to connect to the Nord VPN website or the Express VPN website because of a security issue with the Firefox Browser and I am unable to bypass the security and go to the site anyway. Here is what the message said: Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

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

What can you do about it?

www.nordvpn.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.

Hello, I use dark mode extensions extensively :) and I really dislike light mode pages. However, Mozilla pages refuse to be changed due to the fact that they are "protected" by default.

I don't really care for this protection. Can it be disabled?

I own a small business. We do have online accounts from suppliers, vendors to customers. I need to put employees in front of customer support for these online accounts. However, if an employee sits down to work on our accounts, he can clearly see the passwords for the log in information of our accounts.

Is there a way to lock the Firefox or any other browser (or any software or ANYTHING) out there that doesn't expose saved passwords? I don't know how to pass this security issue. The reason it's important is because if employee saves these passwords, he can obviously do bad things when he is not in the office.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Is there a way in Firefox to configure the passwords that it generates automatically?

Currently it seems to produce passwords that contain only letters, but half the time that is unacceptable to whichever site I'm on, so I have to tweak it.

I am using a plugin which does allow me to configure the password, and what I have found works most of the time is this:

At least one upper case character At least one lower case character At least one digit At least one special character, but not including these: |![]{}<> Length: 14
