DNS over HTTPS is undermining my family DNS filter. Can I password protect the DNS settings or other solution?

Hello all,

I had been using firefox as the standard browser for years, but since the DNS-over-HTTPS feature I have had trouble with protecting my family on the web via DNS filtering. Currently the only solution that has worked is to use a different browser (the Spin browser, for whoever is interested). I have Firefox blocked using the Android family link feature (and they can't install new apps without permission). Personally, I would love to move everyone back to Firefox, but I can't find a way to do it safely. Is there a way to effectively disable DNS-over-HTTPS such that it can't be changed (kids are pretty quick at figuring out that they can just go to the settings and figuring out that they can turn the feautre back on). A parental control feature would be ideal, so I can just set the DNS-over-HTTPS to use the family DNS filter in a way they can't turn it off. Does anyone have an helpful solution, or is Firefox dead for family protection?

Respectfully, Andrew

I have a slight problem. I'm currently using Firefox 116.0.3 and it seems that it can't update. The automatic updating will run, and then it will fail (this is all the time when using Firefox). It will recommend me to download the newest version from the website, but then the CDN will and I will be presented with the "connection was reset" error. This happens both on my Windows 10 and Windows 11 machines. Both are running Firefox 116.0.3.

Funnily enough I tried to see if I could download the newest version on Edge (Chromium), which it could but the version I got from the website was the same version I have now. I wonder if this is something to do with my region as I'm based in China and I'm aware that some software can have...problems.

Also, when trying to download version 122.0, it is fantastically slow and will often fail to complete.

Is there anything that could be suggested as I really don't want to use Edge.

Hi, I have tried to create a google account two times. Each time Firefox didn't save the google account name.

Firefox did save the password though. Just the username is empty. So, the third time I will write down the username.

I know how to create a Google account. Pretty sure it will work. My question is, why is this happening? Am I paranoid thinking Google doesn't like to support Firefox?

Best regards

Hi, Recently purchased new laptop with Win 11. I was having trouble downloading anything. Always indicated failure.

I checked some of the responses here for that problem. One of them said to not accept HTTPS only. When I checked my settings, it WAS already set to Don't enable HTTPS-Only Mode. I then set the HTTPS-Only mode to Only in private windows. That setting now allows downloads. Why doesn't it allow downloads when I don't accept HTTPS only?

To The Mozila Admins: Can You Please Let The End User Make The Decision on When To install Updates?

I get no warning when auto updates begin installation. I get notified about 1/2 way through the process. The pc (Win 10 pro 64bit) slows to a crawl for 5-10 minutes, then the install finishes, & then it's another 5-10 minutes before the pc is usable.

I would really appreciate a "update is available" notification, which I would agree to at a convenient time. This is really getting to be problematic. Other browsers that do auto updates don't hose my pc.

Thank you!

The following just started a week or so ago. When I start Windows 11 (latest version), Firefox (build 116.0 64 bit) automatically starts and the page that displays is attempting to access one of my Microsoft accounts. I tried toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart. but nothing changed. There is nothing in my Startup folder related to Firefox, and msconfig doesn't list anything as a startup process.

What's strange is that this just started happening. I've used Firefox as long as I can remember, and have never had this issue.

Short of uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it, does anyone have any suggestion(s)? Thanks.

Hi there,

Is the script in this product bypassing Firefox privacy fences? I do not understand what they promote, but I have not a good feeling after reading their explanation. https://confection.io/scripts/click-engage-xbox-com/.

But I hope Firefox can do something against this possible new threat.

In your reply to my previous question, I checked with the Bank... their tech people checked it is coming from the firefox Mozilla side of communications. Firefox is stopping the copying process on my browser. Keeps coming up Error- reset tab or close. Mozilla NEEDS to FIX this Problem immediately. It may be time to give up on Mozilla/FireFox. Been there for years, and now having several issues. Please advise?

I also posted this under "Tabs."

All of a sudden I started getting a strange download message, a download which didn't show up when I looked for it. Since then, when I press "+ New Tabs," a new tab doesn't open. A new tab opens only when I've clicked on a new link for a topic.

I cleared the cache, restarted my phone twice and un-and re-installed Firefox twice. I was originally synced with Firefox on my other phones, but I don't want to sign in again with that email until this problem is fixed. I haven't opened Firefox again on my previous phones since this all started. I'm going to cry if those versions are "infected" with this problem as well. I just can't erase all the data I've previously accumulated within Firefox on those devices, either.

Now I've looked in Firefox Support for this problem and I've looked again and again for a way to restart in Safe Mode, but I can't find it. Could someone please help me diagnose and fix this issue?
