With security concerns on the rise, our company has required that all software installed on their systems go through an approval process.

As part of that approval process, they want to know the following:

  • Is the software signed by a trusted third party?
  • Is the software downloaded from a US hosted facility?
  • Does the software perform call backs to the software maker?

Thank you!

Just after installing Firefox Quantum v66.0.2 (64 bit), I am now seeing tens of items being blocked by Ghostery, NoScript and UBlock, items I have not seen being blocked in the past. Is this new version of Firefox subject to being immediately hijacked as soon as it is updated? Is there now something different in Firefox's security for this new version? I have checked ALL of my Firefox settings and all settings are set just as I want them to be set, with this exception: I seem to have many more certificates than I really need and many of them appear to be from countries other than the US. Would I encounter problems if I just deleted all the current certificates in order to update the required certificates? Thank you, Rusty

I recently set up my Android phone to sync with Firefox on my home PC. Am concerned when checking devices following an email from Firefox that said last sync 8 hours ago Novi Mi...I am at least 3 hours from there! So I was concerned that my account was not secure and I just disconnected it from the new firefox sync.

I don't know if "googleadservices" is an uninvited addon or virus but it inserts itself at the start of any webpage searched for. It effectively prevents the web page from opening at all, der! I cannot find any way of removing it, and ineffective advice has driven me to uninstall Firefox out of frustration, which of course is not what I want to do. From what I can see its been around for a number of years, so why is it still an issue in Feb. 2018?

So, i've just received an email that someone "signed in to my account with Firefox 18 on 2016-06-23 15:18 UTC" Can i get info which IP/location was used while doing so ? I've already changed my password, but knowing that emails come with some delay and all you need is just a few seconds to sync all your passwords id say its a pretty bad thing..

I'm facing an Audit from our Security which is asking how the automatic update process of Mozilla Firefox is secured against Manipulation or malicious Software. The fear is that per example somebody could manipulate the update to load an infected File instead of the original Firefox Update. I've already searched for half a day through the Internet and in the Mozilla wiki but could not find a description of this. Could you please provide me a Whitepaper or similar which describes how Mozilla Firefox ensures that only official and not manipulated Updates can be loaded and installed e.g. does the Client validate the installer hash before execution etc.

Here would be the equivalent Information from Google about Chrome: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/privacy/whitepaper.html https://github.com/google/omaha/blob/master/doc/install-update-overview.png

I get a mixture of these when I attempt to load a secure website.

1.

uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not

trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server

might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates.

An additional root certificate may need to be imported. (Error

code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)


2. Permissions you have not granted this site any special permissions


3. Connection is not secure

I have deleted cert8.db. I have refreshed firefox. Some sites will load secure but will still not have permissions. Other sites i.e support firefox will load but it will be in all text be secure but will still not have permissions. Youtube the site will load but videos don't play and certain things on the website will just not load correctly. I am running windows 7 x64 and I use eset nod 32 9 as my anti-virus.

My firefox was working just fine then I woke up today tried using it as normal and pages would have all those combinations of issues. It always has on all sites with security now

2. Permissions you have not granted this site any special permissions

Other internet browsers do work and are secure I just really want to get back to using firefox.

How can I fix this for these websites to work? I have already allowed them in permissions. It hasn't helped. My firewalls are not blocking them. Browser is updated. Firefox 43.0 Windows 7

Kaspersky cannot function because Firefox is making it impossible. I can't get a "certificate" from Kaspersky to satisfy Firefox. Kaspersky will not accept my appeals because I no longer use the email address I used when I started with Kaspersky 7 years ago.

When I ran a security scan using Windows Defender, it says that three files in my Cache2 entries folder are suspicious and should be sent to Microsoft for further analysis. I am wondering if I should be concerned about this. Could these files be malware, spyware, or viruses? I will clear cache, but just want to make sure if the security of my system has been compromised. Thanks!
