"When a server requests your personal certificate" my preference is set to "Ask you every time" but Firefox is remembering the certificate I used last time for a site and does not allow me to select a different certificate. How can I change this please? My Firefox browser version is 84.0.2 (64 bit). Thanks

Firefox Blocking Allowed Pop-Ups After Update

We run Firefox on all our clerk computers at the public library where I work. Since the most recent update, our online circulation website which we use to check out books, receives a pop-up blocked message every time we try to print a hold receipt for an item. The website has always been added as an exception to our pop-up blockers, and until just after the most recent update, the blocker had no problem allowing the website through. Now it does. I have tried clearing the browser caches, removing and adding the website to the exceptions list again, and restarting the browser, as well as adding different variations of the website to the exceptions list. In the end, we just had to turn the pop-up blockers off. I searched online for anyone else who had this issue, but the ones I found dated back to 2014-2015, and the solution they came up with no longer seems to exist in the Firefox settings. So I'm hoping to find an answer here! Thanks.

As I hear if so many people that think that because there see a padlock and https, they'll trust the site to the point of entering credit card details, I wonder whether there might be a plug-in or a simple code upgrade that would alert users ; at worse financial institutions can upgrade to EV if their customers are not comfortable.

Is there any way we can approve a generic domain as OK, instead of having to authorise each unique email reply, e.g. complaints@domain.com, service@domain.com, no-reply@domain.com etc just state tha anything from domain.com is OK. I accept it's not ultra secure but for incoming emails with html content it has to be better than having to approve each email

I tried to Reinstall Firefox Browser to overcome "White screen" problems. At the end without any input from me, I ended up with--- a White Screen". But I got me Pics and a short video for you. I'm terribly sorry if it is irrelevant to the issues you talk about. Also, As I'm navigating through, I saw some very promising Information by Mr. Jan-Ivar Bruaroey, on chatting while sharing screens. It would be the dream solution to the nightmares I'm facing presently. I don't know how to upload the video, but here are the freshly created Photos.

Currently, I have configured my Privacy & Security settings in which all third-party cookies are blocked. This causes certain websites to break and become nonfunctional.

How do I configure my settings to which all third-party cookies are blocked by default, but for specific websites I choose they are not blocked?

I do not want to change my settings in which cookies are blocked only from websites I have not visited; because there are some websites I frequent that I still wish to block third-party cookies.

Thank you

I was trying to sign into a restaurant's guest wifi, but the login page used a restricted port, and I got an error page with the message: "Port restricted for security reasons"

I'm on Firefox nightly, and this article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1083282

mentioned a setting to get around it using network.security.ports.banned.override in about:config, but I didn't see it in the current version.

Is there any way to work around this? Thanks!

When I try to change my password, it makes me log in, which I do using my old password. Then it makes me authenticate it with a code it sends to my email, which I do. Then I get to the change password screen, enter my old password, my new password, and my new password again to confirm. But it won't let me save it because it says "incorrect password." I know it's not the incorrect password, because I just used it to log in.

So I am not sure what this is about. I know the search bar and URL are combined no matter what at this point, but the issue is that if I type any letter; it suggests a website that I have never visited, bookmarked, searched, etc.

Please see the screen shot I have attached. In this example, I typed the letter "y", although it can be done with any other letter, and an unwarranted site will pre-populate. I am assuming this is Mozilla is promoting/sponsoring certain websites when you start typing any letter, which I don't want a part of.

It can't be DuckDuckGo causing this (the search engine of this user's choice), because changing the Firefox settings from URL to Search bar only doesn't make this issue stop. Not sure what I can do to prevent unsolicited sites from showing up when I am typing into the URL field.

To replicate, you can start typing any letter into the URL/Search bar field and the first result directly underneath is a "random" website suggestion.

This is why I assume it is coming from Mozilla (not DuckDuckGo), because before the recent updates, there was never this issue. It is great that you guys want to promote your favorite sites, but from the user's end: it is forced upon us; which is not supposed to be Firefox-like.

I don't read the blogs and articles about Mozilla's vision, so perhaps this is a new feature and it works as expected; however, there should be an opt-out so that users can just search for a website name without a favored suggestion appearing directly below.

This is a security problem. Checking emails I often suspect a spam so I do the inspect to find the URL that they want you to go to. But on Google I can inspect it using the search of the URL and not move to the URL. But on the Firefox new tab it seems like I'm supposed to go to the spam website as I'm not to search the URL, just go to it.

So is there a way to change this?

And oh yeah I did finally figure out that the older computer (that Microsoft killed with an update) kind of made some of the problems I had before using Firefox. And now I'm back to really liking it. So again is there a way to stop the Firefox new tab from forcing me to go to the spam URL? Over all I can ignore it and just use Google home page. Thanks if you know how to stop that.

Why are emails from trusted sources, that I have been receiving for years suddenly going to junk/spam mail? I use the "shift J" to return them to my inbox, yet when left there for over 1 month, they still end up in SPAM. Again, these are normal emails from suppliers I have been receiving valid emails from for years... VERY ANNOYING. I clean out my inbox multiple times a day, moving emails to different directories for different suppliers, this has been going on for several months now...

Recently, Restore Previous Session is not working like it did before V.89 (and the removal of Tools > Options).

Here are my settings. When I close and reopen Firefox my open tabs do not reopen like they used to.

Is this a known bug or something I'm doing wrong?
