after discovering the windows sysinternalssuite,.. i've noticed google is keeping like 50 or so pipes running in the background, AFTER i've closed chrome,.. but interestingly, WHILE having firefox open - is there any kind of software i can install in firefox to prevent google from doing whatever it is they're doing,.. presumably sending to themselves illegally, what i'm searching for when using firefox!!

this is a quick cut&paste of the pipes active well after chrome's closure,.. i checked in task manager,..

as a result of the pipelist64.exe command's result (the 1st number is the number of instances, the 2nd max-instances)

I work from home and use OpenVPN for work. When I am connected (most of the day), I have noticed that I receive the "PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR" on every website I try to visit. Is using Firefox not compatible with an independent VPN? Or is there a setting of some sort that I can adjust to make it work? Thank you!

Hello,

Latest Firefox 83 (tested with 84+ as well) running on Windows 10 1709.

Access to the Internet is allowed through the proxy (Squid) and proxy settings are distributed via pac file. There are no issues accessing the Internet.

We host our local web server which is allowed to be accessed directly without proxying and it's excluded in the pac file -- this works fine too.

The problem is that in one of the pages of our local website, there are several YouTube videos embedded using iframes and they can't be displayed. Instead, we see:

"The page isn’t redirecting properly" (Screen1.png and Screen2.png)

There are no issues displaying videos using Chrome/Chromium, Internet Explorer or Opera.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

BLOCKING FILE SYSTEM ACCESS -- DANGEROUS ALLOWANCE -- IDEAS & SUGGESTIONS

Hello to all,

I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years of developments... Why? To keep this allowed makes it too easy for hackers, especially with multiple screens and a shadow/background screens available which can be running in the background, not seen, when hackers do that.. Kind of the way TeamViewer allows help to be provided remotely. Kind of screen sharing. Oh well...

Maybe need lots of complaints from you all to get this changed?..


Try yourselves to use file://C:/ with 2 // and file:///C:/ with 3 // and both are allowing access to the whole file system and any data file. BONKERS??? But why to use 3 /// if 2 // still works? Insider's job or programming conflict? Why would Firefox programmers allow that? I do not understand...

I tried to use selective website blocker, but for file:/// that addon says that the page is not supported... Maybe another type of addon could be developed for this to be blocked and secured once and for all, but not sure if Firefox would allow such an access or such a blocking. May cause issues with Downloads and accessing download folder from within Firefox. HOWEVER, they could block any system or file access from the ADDRESS BAR and SEARCH BAR and then do a work-around solution by developing a special warning 'dialog message' each time when any user (owner or remote user) tries to access forlder to see or use any file. That would be a lot like a guest account requiring password to access special folder or file, or wants to perform an action usually not allowed for a guest user. Password is required for that each time, or at leats a visual confirmation. That would help, I hope...

Would need to re-educate users after this! TOO DANGEROUS TO KEEP THIS IN SUCH A WAY AS IT IS NOW!!!!

DOES FIREFOX TEAM UNDERSTAND THIS? Maybe they forgot about this, maybe they did not figure out how to solve this, or maybe someone from an inside is helping hackers to have a very easy access? Not sure, but this "open doors to all system and data files for anyone" is shocking!


What about business or government people? What about online bullying and harrassment? What about privacy about which Firefox writes so much? Need more complaints to make this a serious issue. So, everyone, please write your own comments or complaints to Firefox and Chrome directly and maybe they will listen. This may take more work than we think, but my ideas may help. What about your ideas? Express them below and maybe they will help as well.


You all can ask them for this to be blocked or solved, so ask. Maybe my ideas will help to get this moving. Write your own to them as well. And Microsoft may need to get involved as well because Firefox, and from what I read, Chrome allows this too... Other browsers may be doing that as well...!!!!!! There are loads of various browsers available!!!! I read something about Windows Policies, but I do not understand what that is...


(( !!! )) If any of you will try any system changes in an attempt to try solving this issue, make sure you are okay to risk with crashed system requiring reinstall or recovery to be used, and then, write down all the changes you do in detail before carrying any further and applying them because that may ruin the system without a way to recover it.

Thank you in advance.

This is BEYOND excusable.

I opened up FF today, from a nice new update, to see that there are now paid ads that will force their way onto my browser's favorites. Is... is there a reason for this? I know it wasn't an add-on that did this, since I only have 1 installed for the past couple of years without issues.

Is there a setting for this? Or is it just time to move on to a new browser? I'd rather use Edge than deal with a browser that adds sponsored crap without my permission.

I have an embedded system with a HTTP server on it. It doesn't provide HTTPS. When I restart it, the host gets offline from the network for 10 or 20 seconds. When I try to reload the webpage too early (the host isn't quite ready yet), Firefox automatically redirects me to HTTPS. How can I disable HTTPS redirection on timeout?

Dear Mozilla Support, I am contacting you because I would like to have clarifications regarding the following notification (that I found at the link: https://monitor.firefox.com/user/dashboard):

1 Email address being monitored

Maybe I misunderstand the sentence, so I don't know whether to interpret it positively or negatively.

In other words: is Firefox monitoring my Email account, to protect it, or else has it been detected that my Email account is being monitored by third parties? If the second hypothesis is correct: how do I know who is checking my email account?

I thank you in advance.

With best regards

Hello,

I would like to know why all of a sudden video clips, some web sites and my online banking I get "did not connect" Security Issues, or expired certificates. I don't have these issues on any of my other browsers. I am inclined to believe they don't exist. I can log into my online banking but the page with my account data is blank.
