Hello! A site kept popping up a confirmation window for an action I was trying to take, and in the confirmation window, there was a checkbox for something like "don't allow [this website] to prompt me again" (that's as best I can remember). I checked the box thinking it would just allow the action to happen without the confirmation window, but instead, the site just won't take that action anymore. How can I undo this setting? Thank you!

Since updating to Firefox 93.0, I notice that downloads from certain sites are being blocked, because they are using a basic HTTP connection, requiring me to explicitly allow each download. I understand that this is a new "feature," as explained here: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2021/10/05/firefox-93-protects-against-insecure-downloads/, however, I in no way desire this behavior. It is an asinine nuisance, and if I cannot disable it, I will have no choice but to revert to an early version of Firefox. My question, then is this: is it possible to disable this check, and simply allow all downloads? If so, how can I do that?

Many web pages provide hyperlinks to their audio streams using M3U or M3U8 files.

These hyperlinks are served via HTTP because popular media players, like Windows Media Player or WinAmp, don't support HTTPS.

Currently, Firefox refuses to download files via HTTP (see image attached).

I always need to manually unlock those files in order to listen to audio streams. This is rather cumbersome.

Is there a setting available unlocking downloads from HTTP sources?

I get this message when trying to print in Gmail.

I know I can disable the pop-up blocker altogether but I want to keep blocker on. I added https://mail.google.com/ to exception list but that didn't work.

I want to change my settings so that I can continue to an unsecure site. I used to be able to "I accept the risks... etc". But now I'm just blocked from sites. How do I change that? This is a deal breaker for me on which browser I use. Thank you in advance for the help. I've hit this with several sites but the one now is http://coshoctonlaw.com/PBS/ I tried to upload a screenshot, but Firefox never uploads it, it just spins. "Connection not secure." and "You are not connected securely to this site."

Hi,

This morning I logged into my Gmail using incognito mode and then closed the tab. Now when I visit Gmail inside incognito it logs me in immediately as if it saved all session information like cookies. I faced this issue first time on any browser and there is no mention of such issue elsewhere. I am on Version 96.0.1

Both my wife and I have lost work and time due to Firefox notifications. I have seen my wife throw her hands up and ask me what to do because she has been hacked and now all it will let her do is change her Firefox color theme or whatever else Firefox is pushing. For people with physical or other handicaps these notifications are extremely stressful. I did the research (4hours) in Firefox archives and getting caught in the Firefox loop that took me back to the same wrong information. BTW, where is the "options" category in Privacy and Security? I have installed a block though I doubt it will work and would like to hear the correct way to stop or derail Firefox notifications. Suggestion: Use a pop up message like a sticky note instead of de-prioritizing the web page I am attempting to or looking at. I could be contacting poison control since I can't hear or (this actually did happen) researching what to do with explosives in my back yard that are smoking and dripping that I just plowed up AND the local law is a 1-800 number and will get back to me when they listen to their machine. When my freedom of choice is taken, it pushes me to not support the taker. If I can be of assistance let me know and I will do what I can to improve the Firefox notification scenario.

I'm trying to connect to octopi.local and keep getting the "Internal Sever Error" when trying to connect to my Octopie with octopi.local. This has never happened before and all I can figure out it that my browser has updated to version 96. How do I get around this so i can monitor my printers?

Why and how has Google Search been added to my browser opening page?

Has Google bought Mozilla? or have they donated enough for Mozilla to become a proxy Marketing and user acquisition arm of Google?

This happened on my Windows machine and have read the below too.

Brian Fagioli, reporting for BetaNews:

  • The developers of the Ubuntu-based operating system have agreed to accept an undisclosed amount of money from Mozilla in exchange for making significant changes to Linux Mint. This includes removal of modifications to Firefox and a big change for search. The devs share the upcoming changes to Firefox in Linux Mint 19 and higher.
  • The default start page no longer points to https://www.linuxmint.com/start/
  • The default search engines no longer include Linux Mint search partners (Yahoo, DuckDuckGo...) but Mozilla search partners (Google, Amazon, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Ebay...)
  • The default configuration switches from Mint defaults to Mozilla defaults.
  • Firefox no longer includes code changes or patches from Linux Mint, Debian or Ubuntu.

Can you let me know if the above is correct? Cheers.

I use Mint 19.3 and is attached to a hardware product Winston Privacy which due to lack of sales the piece of Hardware is no longer available but the Hardware I have has a Lifetime License in the firmware. My point is the tracking that Mozilla does seems to be very high with Mozilla even though I have turned off the tracking with Firefox. As you can see with the attached file 'ScreenShot1' Pie graph Domain 'incoming.telemetry.mozilla.org' is the majority of the pie which has a count of 61 blocks. File 'ScreenShot2' shows the actual number count for the Domain.

I honestly don't know. The only thing I do know is that this problem only appeared after the option to make and sync an account was offered. I would at least like to know if there is a way to access the password to my main email as that is a business email I cannot afford to lose. At most, I would like to have all those accounts back. Also, I would like to ask that you forgive the account name, as I was very frustrated when I made it. I have a lot to lose from this.
