This address is restricted

This address uses a network port which is normally used for purposes other than Web browsing. Firefox has canceled the request for your protection.

I gather this feature has been there for sometime but I have not seen it before Ver 86. I frequently use non standard ports for IoT devices etc. I found some info on forums regarding installing a network.security.ports.banned.override entry in the config but this did not work. It also implies I have to list each port. I would prefer to unblock ALL ports.

After the certificates on my corporate PKI smart card were renewed, I am no longer able to login to any of the web sites that used to work before.

The error I get in Firefox is:

An error occurred during a connection to XXXXXXXX. SSL peer was unable to negotiate an acceptable set of security parameters.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE_ALERT

This used to work fine before the certificates on my smart card were renewed.

The DLL file that accesses my smart card is loaded and functioning properly in Firefox under Security Devices.

In Chrome, everything still works fine, only Firefox is failing.

I would rather not post the problem publicly. Most organizations have a way to log security exploits in a way that they are not public.

The long and the short of the symptom, however, is that I could see all of my passwords without entering the master password. That's probably something that you don't want to happen.

Why doesn't Firefox have a "send data to the Internet" permission for Extensions?

When I install Extensions, many of them want "access your data on all websites" or some version of it. For a completely unknown extension I am not likely to be comfortable with that, *if the extension can send that data to external endpoints on the web*. But many add-ons don't need that permission. For example, an add-on that just adjusts styles on a webpage doesn't need to contact the Internet at all. (It would still need to check for updates, but I assume Firefox would do that and it wouldn't require granting carte-blanche internet access to the Extention).

I am generally comfortable with an extension contacting the Internet if it doesn't have any of my data (so that nothing privacy-relevant can be sent). I'd also be comfortable with an extension having major access to data if the data can *never* be sent anywhere - it is just on my machine. But Firefox doesn't seem to distinguish between these two extremely different privacy cases.

Is there some plan to implement this, or else some reason why it is not done? Is the technical challenge extreme for some reason?

I (and I suspect many others) could use a lot more extensions comfortably if this kind of privacy protection was available.

I am a Senior Visison Disabled Veteran. I have used various Firefox Browsers over the past few years on many different devices.

I have used the same firefox account and password and username/email during that time.

My background was in electronics, E.E., Sci, etc. When I was in the Mil-Intel-Indust complex I came to know all electronic systems starting in the 1950's where backdoored. So I have tried to be carefull when setting up and using Firefox browsers. I thought I had delebritly set it up to NOT RECORD any email, username, or password EVER ! To prevent my info from leaking out.

Today I downloaded a free copy of NordPass from their main website. Part of the set up is an option to import from other browsers, etc all emails/usernames and passwords to store them in one location under one password in NordPass.

When I seclected the "Secure Notes" for firefox I got a BIG SUPPRIZE ! There were 11 entries. Yes there was my bank account password and username my firefox account password and username my google account password and username etc and two entries I am in the proccess of trying to locate and find out who they are ! just two urls and usernames and passwords that I never did create or visit thoses urls.

I am requesting your help in deleting this info from my account and keeping all my book marks intact.

I am also interested in preventing this from ever happening again.

Any ideas ?

I scan the QR code with my Authenticator app, but the token I receive back isn't accepted. I tried various Authenticator apps (Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator) with the same result. Also adding the QR code manually doesn't work.

Hello I'm using firefox 86.0.1 in Manjaro-Linux I have activated https only mode in security settings. Most sites are ok, but some sites are available in http and https mode. Maybe I have accessed them in the past with http when the sites did not support https.

I'm looking for an option to disable http access if https is available. Looking in the help and many sites I found that it should be possible to deactivate http access per site (see screenshot firefox-help) But if I click on the "lock" icon. I get a complete different window. No option to enable/disable access.

How to handle this problem in firefox 86?

I have enabled notifications in Google Calendar and allowed them in Firefox browser for MacOS. But I am still not getting popups like I would expect. The sound plays notifying me I have an upcoming event but there is nothing visual to tell me this other than the sound icon that appears during the sound on the tab. Is this how Google Calendar is supposed to work? Tab switching is also enabled but I don't get switched to Google Calendar. I leave it open all the time in a pinned app, so I don't see why there would be an issue here.

Please find my attached images where I think things are correctly set up.

All bookmarks are intact and display correctly. When a bookmarked site is selected Firefox does not go to the selected bookmarked site Example I have ww.ibm.com bookmarked. When I select the bookmark Firefox does not change.

The Tools icon (gear on task bar) is not responsive and does not open settings

I can not reset the home page or access any other tools/settings.

Ich muss auf Deutsch schreiben :-(

Ich arbeite mit mehreren Profilen in FF und TB. Bisher bekam ich nach Klick auf einen Link in TB die Profil-Auswahl von FF angeboten. Nach dem letzten Update von TB (auf 78.9.0) und FF (auf 87.0) geschieht das nicht mehr. Ich bekomme stattdessen immer nur das letzte benutzte FF-Profil geöffnet. Da ich dort aber meistens nicht die relevanten Links gespeichert habe, muss ich jedes Mal FF beenden, mit neuem Profil starten und dann den Link (aus TB) erneut aufrufen. Dies ist sehr nervig und kostet unnötig Zeit.

Welche Einstellungen muss ich korrigieren, um das gewohnte Verhalten von FF wieder zu erhalten?
