Looking for a solution/work around to the new FF protocols which REFUSE exceptions, which has cut me off from streaming from LEGITIMATE web sites like https://news.stlpublicradio.org/ and other sites as well.

I have used FireFox since Netscape, but am now using Chrome which works fine.

Security is great, but when the security Trumps the ability to actually USE the web sites, then how is that different than just blocking the "offending" website.

You should ask yourselves why the FF market share is so low.

You guys need to come out of the clouds and smell the digital earth where most of us dwell. I love you all for what you do, but you seem to be blowing it. Please get it together.

Any site I go to such as my utility companies that have a link for me to open and view my bill while logged into my online account are prevented from opening by Firefox. Their help articles define the pop-up window as a window that opens automatically. That is not what I'm talking about. I am selecting the link. I am giving the site permission to open the window. It is not automatic. Google Chrome, Microsoft edge, no other browser has this problem. please help.

This is in regard to the privacy settings under about:preferences#privacy > 'Allow firefox to send technical & interaction data to Mozilla' where I'm willing to opt into just interaction data, but not willing give my technical data, because of the temporary collection of my IP address. Due to this, I have to opt it out completely & unfortunately couldn't contribute to mozilla's data collection stats. If there's anyway to split those separately, would be better.

Thank you, Prince Cooper

Permission Problem with Camera

We have a customer using our SaaS solution running through Firefox 91.12.0 ESR. The web application we provide requires access to the camera on the local machine so we can capture a photo. We give them instructions and they configure their instance of Firefox to ALLOW access to the camera, along with several other adjustments (like allowing pop-ups, and no autofill).

However, whenever they restart Firefox the camera permission reverts back to the DEFAULT of Always Ask. The other settings adjustments we make, like pop-ups and no autofill stick around, but not the camera setting.

We've checked the PREF.js file in the Profile folder and that doesn't appear to be a problem. On our in-house machines we are running the same version of Windows and Firefox and cannot reproduce the problem.

The customer has recently applied the upgrade from an earlier version of Firefox ESR to 91.12.0. The customer has also imaged the PC and copied over to a large number of additional machines for use around their organization. This problem is causing a serious disruption to their deployment of the updated PC's as we work with them to try and troubleshoot the problem.

Any ideas on what to try would be appreciated.

Is there a way to autofill for most sites but not autofill for certain sites while still saving passwords through firefox for those sites. I like to store my bank information on firefox behind an master password but it automatically autofills with out asking for the master password. Can I limit the sites that autofill passwords or require the master password in order to autofill? Any suggestions?

But still that shortcut still remain.

I would really appreciate help with this.

"delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" now gets checked against my will. i'm not checking it and have never had it set to do that. this is wasting tons of time for me, resetting my shortcuts and signing in to sites that are a pain in the ass to sign in to (specifically bandcamp). other settings get changed also, but not all of them, and my personal info remains. but a lot of time is also wasted correcting all the settings that have changed behind my back. this started happening within the past week. i've changed nothing.

it's not when i turn my computer off. i had to reset everything 2 days ago, but when i got home yesterday and turned my computer on it was working properly - settings intact. i used it for several hours, went to bed, turning the internet off, as i always do, and leaving pine player on. (it's not pine player causing the problem. i wasn't using it the other times) the computer never went into sleep mode, as per my settings... but after turning the internet back on this morning and opening firefox my settings are changed again.

any ideas? Thanks if you try to help

some time ago thunderbird was operating normally. i since updated the antivirus software to a newer edition of ksos. after that, when loading i got the confirm security exception and my pop3 account was operating normally. after a week or so, i pressed the get icon two three times in order for the exception to appear. now, thunderbird starts and i dont get the notification at all, let alone save it permanently. the only way now to download email, is to exit kaspersky, not even pause protection, for the app, to download email without any notifications. if i restart antivirus, i get the connected to mail.com etc but it gets stuck there. also tried switching ports and no change... ideas?

The link seems to go to Webroot which I do have - but that makes no sense.

When I go to log into sites, I get a prompt from Firefox to update the stored password, even though I'm logging in with the autofilled password. When I click to show the password they want to update with it pops up as "test". I don't get this problem with Chrome and Edge, but it does happen on FF with different computers.

Geachte,

Heb al een tijd te maken met volgende foutmelding in mijn Telenet Webmail, zijnde ... 'Niet beveiligd' - mail.telenet.be/zimbra....

Heb reeds contact genomen met Microsoft Windows 10 Ondersteuningsteam, met Telenet zelf, met mijn pc verkoper/IT-er, maar niemand is blijkbaar in staat dit probleem op te lossen, want vandaag krijg ik die foutmelding nog steeds te zien in Telenet Webmail.

Wie kan voor dé oplossing nu zorgen ?

Dank bij voorbaat voor feedback.


Met vriendelijke groeten, Freddy Van De Velde

I have been away from PC use and internet privacy for a while and was even considering ditching my phone due to everything being about data on everything from me to what we eat and drink. I only have a cheap phone Android Nokia 2.2. Whch I am in two minds of ditching due to everything being about buying and selling, social media gossip I'm trying to find a happy medium whare I can buy things I need and also learn more about privacy of all technology devices. To use for navigating this world and trying to do some good with the tools we have. Ideally I would like to be off grid and self sufficient but people will be needing help and as aproffesing Christian I don't even trust them or myself as what I read is we have not to call anyone on earth my father rabbi or teacher as we all have one teacher the holy spirit and stronger is he that is in you than him that is in the world. And beware of them who require the front seats in the synygoges and temples and add frills to their garments seeking the praise of men in market places . Also trust no man as all men are liars including myself. Trying to change and become like a little child again and get my imagination back.
