I have a MAC, I need to use Firefox to open a website. I've installed the certificate properly and the website was running well, a couple of days ago I'm not able to open the website and I've tried everything. Reinstall Firefox, import the certificate again, but nothing seems to work.

I keep getting the following message: The connection has timed out.

An error occurred during a connection to XXXX WEBSITE NAME XXXX

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I want to use discord in firefox instead of using the pc-program. It appears that my firefox.cfg has some preferences that block discord from gaining microphone access. I never used multiple firefox profiles but that changed now, i created a firefox profile for discord purpose only. However my firefox.cfg is active in both the default and the discord profile, again blocking microphone access.

As i said currently i use firefox.cfg and autoconfig.js to customize firefox preferences, but since this makes it impossible for me to use discord i will have to find another way to modify firefox, so the question is how can i use multiple firefox profiles with different preferences? Can this be done with a user.js file? After all what is the difference between using firefox.cfg and user.js?

By using the last version of Firefox (74.0) when visiting a website with security connection I got the following error : "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to .............. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem." With the previous versions of Firefox there was no such problem and I could visit the above website. So, please inform me what happened with ver. 74.0 ? By ver. 74.0 is no more supported some older security protocols which might have the above website, or this is a bug by the new ver. 74.0 ? Please inform me how this issue can be fixed ?

Firefox Autofill Frustration, Am I doing it wrong?

I love the AutoFill feature, with some exceptions. And I am hoping someone can offer a solution, even if it is to tell me I am doing it wrong.

It seems like others would have a similar problem, and it is sort of difficult to explain, although I'd think there would be a simple solution. Anyway, let me try to explain...

When I use the autofill option, it is usually while placing an order, or filling out my account details for whatever shopping site, or gaming profile, etc. But I have multiple addresses I need to consider when I am shopping, and need to send the order to one or the other, instead of my regular address. Like placing an order that I want sent to my mother's address.

As anyone knows, when you change something, like the address, state, zip or phone number, you end up with several autofill entries. Like this...

First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but I can't see it in the pop-up) First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but my work address, which I also don't see) First Name, Last NAME First Name, Last Name FIRST NAME, Last Name First Name, Last Name

These pop up, all valid options, the next time you start filling out a form. Which is great, because ONE of them is the one you would like to use, but there is no way to see WHICH one points to the one you need. The first one is my normal address, phone, etc, but the autofill pop up doesn't show you anything other than the name, the second is my work, but I can't see that it is... only the name. The third might be my mom's address, but again, I have no idea because only my name is shown...etc etc etc.

Is there a better autofill plugin out there, one that lets you label them? Or some way to show more than just the name? Just showing me the same name 12 times, without any way to know what the right one to use is, kinda makes the autofill feature useless for me. If I only had one phone, or one address, etc, the feature would work great. But since I have about a dozen addresses I routinely use, each with their own unique state or zipcode, or phone number, has rendered autofill useless unless I only need the common "top" one.

I hope I've made it clear what the problem is. And no, using a unique firefox profile for each is not the answer. I'd have to log out/off firefox and switch profiles several times in one shopping or gaming session, which would only make the solution highly annoying.

It would be nice to find a plugin, or any other solution, that would let me label, or differentiate each from the other when the autofill pop-up gives me the option to fill the form.

Like... Home - First Name, Last Name Work - First Name, Last Name Mom's - First Name, Last Name Gary's - First Name, Last Name

Anyone have a solution, or feel my pain? Or am I simply doing it wrong?

ANY help is greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I am running FF 79 with W10 OS.

I do a lot of browsing related to ancestry. After several hours of working thing get very sluggish. What I then do is bookmark the tabs I am working on and then shutdown and restart FF. I have the history set to Remember History it and then clear it when FF closes.

I want FF to remember my sign-in information so that is why I have FF Remember History.

Is there a way to set up FF to remember the sign-in information but not remember the other browsing history so it 'fills up' my machine and slows it down? I really hope that there is but it is not obvious to me.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am using containers, and have made every setting I can think of to keep my log-ins private. Instead, every time I go to ProtonMail I get shown every email login I have used lately, including a gmail login I only use in a gmail container! ProtonMail advise they do not store this data.

The passwords are not stored, thank goodness.

HOW is Firefox saving it? WHERE? This is actually the creepy and intrusive tracking I came to Firefox to get away from - now they seem more like the perpetrator and I have to go right out of my way to protect myself from Firefox itself. Now I guess gmail knows all my protonmail logins.

Any solutions? I hope my tone is not too exasperated, but if there was another browser option out there right now I'd be gone in minutes.

Thank you!
