HTTPS and SSL on Localhost Required Now?

Hi, I've recently learned, like others, that the Firefox browser no longer supports plain http requests and automatically diverts to https. I develop websites and have in the past used Apache Virtual Hosts. I want to be able to achieve the same thing, specifically, I want to use the domain name the site will eventually be hosted on, but point to a local directory: localhost/mywebsite newWebsite.com

I'm getting the impression that I will now have to create SSL Certificates for each local site now, so that I can use the https (port 443) protocol. Am I right to assume this, or am I missing something that will make my life easier? I have looked online, but can't find much in the way of answers.

Thanks for reading.

I just installed Brave, and clicked on "Import settings & bookmarks", then chose Firefox from a popup list

Without typing my password, or doing anything else, Brave then instantly imported all of the saved passwords that I had stored in Firefox. I can now view all of my most secret saved passwords of Firefox... in Brave

This makes me wonder, if Brave can instantly import (and display in clear text) all of my Firefox saved passwords, couldn't any other rogue app do exactly the same?

Shouldn't they be stored in an encrypted format, at least?

Am I missing something or are the passwords wide open that Firefox saves?

I used to have Roomy Bookmark App instaled and Im still missing it :( Is there a way to reduce bookmark size to favicons and see the name of it when I hover over it? And not having to fix it after each update? I love Firefox but this one thing is really to improve because I have so many bookmarks its hard to expand the list of it everytime.

I just formatted and installed Windows 10 (Pro N, 64-bit, 1909 update) and then installed firefox.

To my surprise, no videos can be played on any website (except youtube).

The video either doesn't load or shows the "Error loading player: No playable sources found" error.

I had no extensions installed, tried refreshing, tried disabling hardware acceleration; nothing solved it.

All content plays fine on chrome.

Hello, since some browser updates (I think). It is possible to edit text boxes in a PDF file protected by a password against modifications. When saving the PDF file, the name of the author and the date of creation do not change. When you reopen the edited file with Acrobat or other, the file is still password protected. The security of the PDF file is violated. Is this normal?

Hi,

My Firefox sync data for a specific addon is messed up. I believe the temporary containers addon made Multi Account Containers addon to sync an insane amount of containers, maxing up the sync storage. Now whenever I click to sync MAC, it downloads thousands of 'tmp' containers. It refuses to sync ever again, hence no matter how many times I fix it locally, if it ever syncs again, it downloads the thousands 'tmp' containers again. How can I delete the sync data for good?

dear ladies and gentlemen,

Firefox has been delivered with the new print dialog since version 82.

I have to print around a hundred PDF files at work (usually only the first page of the document). The new print dialog means that there is a lot more work for me here.

Is it possible to set the "old" system print dialog by default or to instruct firefox to always print only the first page of the document by default?

As you can see in attached GIFs, bookmarks in superior bookmark bar can be moved easily just as should be, but in additional bookmark field they can't be moved at all. I try to move them, but there is no "insert here" line appearing, and after I release my left mouse button it somehow opens the bookmark the cursor was on at the release moment. No matter fullscreen or windowed mode. I have custom "animated Codama" theme and some add-ons like "Midnight Lizard" and "uBlock", but disabling any of them doesn't help. Any ideas?

I visited a website that allows you to download youtube videos.

Every time I click in the box to paste the URL or hit the submit button, I get a new tab open with a ad in it. Some times it is an ad for a porn site.

I tried using opendns to fix the problem. I have not gotten far enough with them yet, but I don't want to block sites.(like get a new window that says this site was blocked is NOT good enough..) I want to block any tab from opening in the first place, unless I deliberately choose to open a new tab myself..

Can you add a feature?

  • Do not let this site open tabs or new windows
  • Do not let this site open links to other sites.
  • Do not let this site do infinite page forwarding..(site you can't back out of)
  • Do not let sites force you to agree to (cookie terms extortion)

Thanks in advance...
