I signed up to try Firefox's VPN. It did not load properly and I have not used it. In thinking about it, I use my PC so seldom and I really don't need it. I want to stop the VPN and get a refund of my money for the trial period. I have never used it anyway. Thanks for any help. It is not easy to get help from Firefox.

I love the work that Mozilla does, but man, this is bad guys. I paid for and installed the VPN and some websites were getting blocked, so I decided to turn it off by simply clicking the Mozilla VPN logo -> disconnect. Then I tried to load the page again, and waited .... and waited... Turning the VPN back on restored the connection. I did this at least a dozen more times, to confirm that I couldn't just "disconnect" from the VPN. I understand that there is a "Killswitch" in a VPN intended to make sure that when a VPN connection is briefly interrupted, internet traffic doesn't flow around it, exposing your IP. That's well and good, but that killswitch should be disabled when I actively disable the VPN.

Weird, but ok, whatever. I'll just quit the program. Nope -> no internet. The only way I can go online is by turning Mozilla VPN back on, and then connect through the VPN. Then, and ONLY then can I access the internet at all.

Ok, so now I'm thinking it's time to uninstall this program from my computer entirely. Surely THAT will fix whatever damage it's done? Nope. Killswitch STILL persists. Even after I uninstall the program from my computer, the leftover killswitch is STILL making it impossible for me to access the internet outside of its VPN. The only way I can regain internet access is to re-install the program. I've power-cycled (rebooted) my machine several times, reinstalled and uninstalled the program again. Over and over again it's made clear: My machine can no longer access the internet in any way other than through Mozilla VPN. My system is effectively being held hostage by mozilla VPN and I can't turn this off. This is not ok. Please tell me how to fix this.

E: I should add that there's a good chance this is Apple's fault, since I'm using Big Sur, which has tons of other problems. I don't care who's fault this is, I just want my computer back to how it was, and clearly there's a problem with mozilla VPNs kill switch. Please tell me how I can disable it.

System info: OSX big sure 11.4 Firefox version 91.0 (64-bit)

Edited for brevity, and to note solution below will also affect other VPNs you may have already set up. You'll need to follow the instructions below, remove your other VPNs, and then reinstall them. Will it then be safe to re-install MozillaVPN again? I don't know and am not comfortable taking that risk. My system is back to how it was before downloading it, and it's going to stay that way for a while.

Hi! I have been using Mozilla VPN for a few weeks now. After a Windows Update, the VPN does not turn on. It suggests "Update recommended," but when the update is installed, there is no change; it still does not stay on, and it still says "Update recommended." Any clues? Thanks! Michael

Hi, my name is Maria) I would like to clarify the information that I did not find on your VPN site) In which country is your vpn based? In which country is your jurisdiction? On what platforms is your vpn available for installation? I mean such as windows, android, ios, mac, ubuntu, Linux, router, chrome, safari, edge, firefox (browser extensions)?

I'm unable to install the VPN tool I purchased because I'm running Windows 7. That would have been really, REALLY helpful to disclose that your VPN tool doesn't run on Windows 7 PRIOR to purchase!!!!! How do I get a refund? I'm well within the 30-day window and I've posted this question to several "forums", different email aliases, etc and heard NOTHING. I would really appreciate some help with this. Thank you.

It would seem that I am exposed to some sites. Is this fixable? images of sites included.

I recently subscribed to Mozilla VPN and it's been working fine for a couple of weeks. But in the last 24 hours something changed and it won't stay connected. No matter what location I choose (NY, Chicago, etc.) and turn it on, it almost immediately disconnects with the error message "Couldn't start VPN." Most recent log entries are as follows:

Hi~ I had made numerous attempts to login to my Firefox account and subscribe to the Mozilla VPN, strangely after inputting my email and password correctly, it took me back to the prior "Try Mozilla VPN" landing page. I've been thrown into this loop with every attempt with no avail. I'm completely stumped as I've been able to to sign in the my regular Firefox account without any issues. I had also gone through the trouble of adding the Try Mozilla VPN (https://vpn.mozilla.org/) webpage to the exception list of Firefox's popup blocker, which didn't resolve the issue. Any helps from the community would be greatly appreciate it.

Hey as per topic, I'm currently using ProtonVPN which I get at a prorate due to having ProtonMail, so I pay $6 for VPN and Mail. Their VPN supports P2P and Tor, I'm wondering if the same is true for Mozilla VPN. It doesn't explicitly state it does, or does not. In fact it doesnt' cover the topic.

Thanks
