I have added custom certificate authority to the Android system certificates store. But it seems that Firefox doesn't use native store unlike other browsers do. I have to click to advance and allow every time I visit our "unsafe" university web.

Why there is no option to use native Android certificates store or to install CA into browser? That's quite security issue.

I tried to visit a website on a private network.

Firefox threw up a security warning about how the web page uses TLSv1.0.

I clicked on the "Enable TLS v1.0" button because I wanted to temporarily view the web page, so that I can look at the TLS certificate to debug an unrelated issue about the cert chain on this site.

Now I want to go back to the default settings, where Firefox blocks TLSv1.0.

How do I do that?

In about:config I looked at security.tls.version.min but it's still on the original value of 3. Yet Firefox is still letting me view that particular page over TLSv1.0 without the security warning.

The small window comes, but I see in background list of emails & if I use ESC, I can read all emails in folder!!, If I switch to other folder(s) masterpasswordwindow comes again (OK!), but with ESC I can read all emails in this folder. Same procedure with other folders!! My other computer with Win7 X64 hasn't this problem, there is it impossible to go on without masterpassword. Information: There I have more than one emailaddress/-account and on Win10-computer only one address!

Question: Is it possible to get a startwindow without any information (of email(list))?

Best regards Martin

P.S: Great program!! :)

This has been asked elsewhere, but my situation is different as I run every Firefox session in a Sandbox which deletes after exit. I don't generally use Firefox signed in, but when I do sign in I get two emails every time, and it is driving me nuts.

I can find a preference or security setting to turn these off. The risk should be mine to take if I so wish it; hate nannying.

Anyone got a solution? Or even a suggestion.

I trust Firefox to keep my paswords safe without a lot of hassle. Suddenly I am being asked to "verify my identity" before I can view my password. I don't have time for this. It clearly says in the Logins and Passwords tab that my identity is sgillies12@gmail.com. Then it refuses to give me the password because it says that's NOT my identify.

PLEASE HELP ME ASAP. I need to do some work. thank you.

I think my Firefox updated, and now there is a feature where any "insecure" sites now have all the media blocked on it. When I click "Disable protection for now," it does nothing and I have no way to unblock any of it. I am literally just trying to read the TF2 comics, which I know are on a safe website (and even if they weren't, I have antivirus software that protects my computer just fine), but because of this "mixed content" block I literally can't see anything but a white page. I've searched settings for a way to permanently disable this protection, but I haven't found anything.

I'm have Private Browsing set to delete all cookies and data after closing a session but I would like to allow certain website to keep certain cookies and keep my session open.

I haven't been able to find a way to do so, does anybody know if it's possible and how? And if it isn't how could it be requested for an upgrade?

Thank you.
