I have a page that is served from a local apache httpd. On it I have an iframe with some content served from an external http source.

Nightly does not show it. I can tell it to show the iframe content by choosing "Disable Protection on This Page". Alas after a refresh (F5) the blocking is active again.

Please supply an option set an exception to "This Page" permanently.

TIA Christian

I have no idea what could have happened to my admin password on my new Windows 8,( Gateway NV ) but this is not good! I have MONTHS of research on it that I can't access, & don't know how it could have changed, I'm the only one who had it. I don't even know if that button was touched, I'm just looking at all the possible things that might have affected a password setting, It happened when I had several windows open, mostly to different legal sites, like ILCS & heritage.org, sites I would not think would be compromised. I have Norton installed. Also Malwarebites, both have been effective & will work together. I was starting to set up the Voice program, & was programming the microphone. That's the last thing I was doing. The speakers squelched, then a reverb was echoing ..that still is, & it picks up every tiny sound to echo.my dogs are losing their mind, it's a little freaky for me too. But the more I tried to figure out how to stop it, the more I didn'y know what I was doing, of course. The next thing that happened was every time I click to access ANYTHING, the Admin Password screen pops up, but the password I have on all three of my computers no longer works on that one, & that's the one where all the picutes are I NEED for my research. They are originl & cannot be replaced, I don't even have that camera or anything now. So they aren't saved anywhere else. I DID network the PCs together, so I can access the photos from all of them, for different portions of the work the computer is designated for. But I can't access them on those other PCs either, without Admin PW....What the heck happened??

I downloaded Firefox earlier this year because I was advised it contained an 'add on' which enabled me to watch BBC & ITV iplayer sites where I live in Spain. I forget the name of the 'add on' but it began with X......... It worked very well, I could stream the catchup sites without problems, but today when I logged on the 'add on' was no longer there.

What has happened?

Please can I have the 'add on' back

In the past I have used http://www.google.co.nz as my home page. Once firefox has opened but I want to go to a different site I just edit the start line and change it to whatever I need eg www.fred.co.nz. Now my home page opens to https://www.google.co.nz - when edited it changes to https://www.fred.co.nz which doesn't exist. I could edit out the "s" as well but like everything that is changing on the internet it always seems to require extra keystrokes or mouse clicks and I am getting annoyed with it. Why can't I still have http://www etc as my home page. In other words how do I STOP https: being inserted into my home page as the default ? Quite happy in Options to have the choice to make either available and who knows maybe in the future I might want to change to encrypted (but I doubt it).

As I check my Verizon e-mail via the Web, the sign-in procedure presents the gray padlock. However, after the most recent Firefox update, trying to sign into the site results in the following security warning: "Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party." Two response buttons are offered: Continue and Cancel.

I hope my memory isn't flawed, but I don't recall this ever happening before. Is there a bug in the Firefox version I'm using, perhaps?

Yes, I've already restarted Firefox. I even rebooted my system. The issue persists, though.

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.
