After installation of Firefox for iOS I synced it with my default account bws@bws.info and the correct password. After the sync the bookmarks are synced correctly over all devices and all my stored credentials are gone. I need my credentials restored otherwise I will never be able to access a lot of web pages.

Why does firefox block Paypal when buying online?

When I attempt to buy a product online using Paypal I get an Untrusted Connection message. If I open Safe Money and perform the transaction from there, I do not have a problem. This was not a problem with earlier versions of Firefox.

Message text. "This Connection is Untrusted You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.paypal.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure. Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do? If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue. This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate."

Firefox fails to connect to VMware VMRC remote console, seems to be certificate issue but only affects firefox (not chrome or edge).

Using vrealize automation 6.2.1, when trying to connect to a remote console firefox errors out with the following: Cannot establish a remote console connection. Verify that the machine is powered on. If the server has a self-signed certificate, you might need to accept the certificate, then close and retry the connection.

When trying to permanently add an exception, the windows will not allow me to continue to the page unless i de-select the permanent option (making it only a temporary bypass). Its odd that I even get an error on this page since Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge display the page as trusted AND connect to the remote console just fine. Any thoughts on this?

Hi guys,

I hope that someone may be able to help?

I am currently working on deploying Firefox 50 in an enterprise environment. I have a few SSL Certificates that are required to be used. These are the steps I've taken so far:

  • Generated the cert8.db with a sample profile
  • Copied the cert8.db into C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser\defaults\profile
  • Created new profile... profile loaded the correct cert8.db

I then found the cert_override.txt file (needed for a self signed cert) and copied it to the same directory, deleted profile and created another one. The problem is this time it didn't copy the file over...

I re-installed Firefox and deleted profiles many times I now cannot get the new profiles to copy files from \browser\defaults\profile anymore... Has anyone experiencing anything like this, or have any ideas on how to resolve...

It's worth noting that if I manually copy these files into the Firefox profile after generation the certs work as expected.

mozilla security blog mar 25 2011 https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2011/03/25/comodo-certificate-issue-follow-up This is a follow-up to the previous Mozilla report about the fraudulent certificates issued by Comodo last week. On 15th March 2011, a RA partner of the Comodo CA suffered an internal security breach (Comodo incident report). The attacker used the RA’s account with Comodo to cause 9 fraudulent certificates to be issued. The domain names of the certificates were as follows:

   addons.mozilla.org
   login.live.com
   mail.google.com
   www.google.com
   login.yahoo.com (x3)
   login.skype.com
   global truste

(and the rest, see link) I still found all certifacate-domain-names in mozilla I only deleted global trustee. What to do with the rest ?

Hi - We launched a new site www.appyourhome.com - it is wordpress shared hosting with Godaddy. We have an ssl certificate and verified it with them.

I very often am getting this message (shown between **). Godaddy says everything is ok on their site. Is this something to do with the Mozilla browser or what else would I check??

This is about Firefox not from Firefox. Seems to originate from Entrust.net which I never applied for. Trouble started after I downloaded Windows 10 and caught a bunch of trouble from Yahoo, then tried to update Java and got extra sneaky stuff with it. I use Kaspersky, which is apparently sending the message about you and they have taken over my computer trying to fix everything for several hours yesterday and today but still getting the message that Firefox certificate is basically expired. Whatever a certificate is. BTW box with message is still up in the corner, don't know if you can see it.

Hello!

My partner is unable to access the following secure site via Firefox 55.0.3: https://mdlandrec.net/main/

He receives the error message: "Secure Connection Failed. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." (Full error message screen shot attached.)

Meanwhile, I am able to access the site with no problem, using the same version.

The error message suggests I contact the site owners, which is not possible. The site is a state government site and the owners are not responsive. I cannot wait for this problem to resolve itself. Is there any way to bypass this security so that my partner's Firefox can access the site?

Thank you! BenGW

Firefox is showing the TrustedID site as a deceptive site. This is the site that Equifax is linking to for people to get credit monitoring because of the massive data breach. The site is https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/enroll/. If you click the "Begin Enrollment" button, it comes up with the Deceptive Site message. If this is really a deceptive site, there is a massive international problem because tens of millions of people are going to be going there. If it is not deceptive, then Firefox should change this immediately because it will cause Firefox users to avoid getting the protection they need because of the breach.

Since updating to FF57.0.3 some day ago I have the problem that I can't add exceptions to insecure websites (message code SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN). This happens very often when certificates are valide only for the root domain but not for subdomains (as in my case).

Before updating to 57.0.3 it was possible to define exeptions for such websites. But this function is missing now (or I'm unable to find that button).

How can I either add an exception or how can I solve that problem?
