When I attempt to access several websites, I am prompted to turn off my ad blocker. As I have not added a third-party software or extension that does such, I assume it is part of Firefox proper. Search as I might, I cannot find any specific reference to such a thing in "Settings". SO...how can I temporarily disable the 'Ad Blocker' device that is part of Firefox? The 'TEMPORARY' part is important, as I do greatly value the function!

Hi,

I've been tasked to make some changes to the way users deal with logins and passwords in the office. So, in short, one of the issues is this: is there ANY way to disable (I'd say "hide" is more accurate) the about:logins page on Firefox?

  • pref.privacy.disable_button.view_passwords (with a lock pref) in autoconfig only disables the "View saved logins" button in Settings.

As for policies:

  • a few policies for blocking about: pages do exist - BlockAboutAddons/Config/Profiles/Support, but can't find one, say, "BlockAboutLogins" or something like that.
  • PasswordManagerEnabled set to false disables the password manager completely, including about:logins, password autofill is disabled as well - not what I need.
  • WebsiteFilter, as expected, doesn't treat about: as a protocol, so it can't be done there either.


Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I don't want the pdf to save to disk without my will when I open a pdf file from any website. Fire Fox saves the file first, then opens it for reading. How to change it? I want to read the pdf first and then decide what to do with it. This works similarly in Edge. FF is my main browser, I wouldn't want to change that, but I have too much garbage on my disk. every pdf is saved first, completely unnecessary.

I live with Firefix always in full screen. I Don't like seeing any bars or buttons of any kind.

Befor the latest update, when I moved my mouse to the top of the screen my tabs popped down and in the top right corner was the standard icons for "minimize" "maximize" and "exit".

With the latest update the tabs are there but the 3 buttons have gone.

If I exit full screen (F11) then they are there again, but I dont want to have to exit full screen every time I change between programes which I do every few mins. I'd be popping pages in and out of full screen every few mins!

How do I get the buttons back all the time?

I noticed this when I opened - Settings - Privacy & Security then went to Certificates -View Certificates/Certificate Manager - first three tabs have blank fields, on Servers tab, there are entries, none matching in any way what comes up on the Enterprise Policies tab; on Authorities tab I couldn't find any entry that seemed like what was displayed on the Enterprise Policies tab.

ImportEnterpriseRoots seems to be the "organization" that is controlling my browser poking around I found the following;

{

"ImportEnterpriseRoots": {
 "type": "boolean"
},
"Install": {
 "type": "array",
 "items": {
  "type": "string"
 }
}

}

what does it mean that my "browser is being managed by your organization"? what should or can I do? TIA.
