The last version of Firefox is making some connections I don't know how to stop. I've modified some of the parameter in "about:config", but there are still HTTP request to the following URLs that I didn't manage to stop:

https://firefox-settings-attachments.cdn.mozilla.net/security-state-staging/intermediates/* https://firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com/v1/buckets/monitor/collections/changes/records

Also, does anyone know if there is a configuration file where I can modify directly all of the parameters I changed in "about:config"?

Thanks!

Until recently, there were websites like Fox.com that I did not have to log back in every time after I left the website, but it kept me logged on. Recently it started asking me to log in every time. Is that someting done by Firefox or by the specific website?

Can someone provide a solution for autofill (both addresses and passwords) not working. And no, don't say "did you check or uncheck so and so - I've been writing CNC software interfaces for years and have little idea about setting up a system. Getting fed up with having to repeatedly log on and add the address over and over (I get the prompts to save). The save address "feature" RARELY works. Firefox "used" to be able to perform this feature - now it is becoming a buggy FAIL. I'm thinking it may be time to just give up, uninstall it, and move on to Chrome...

Hi, With Firefox 81.0.2 64-bit running on Windows 7, I can't logout from my account on a very specific site. If I delete the 2 cookies the site wrote on my computer, I'm then presented with the logon window and I'm able to login again but not logout until I delete the 2 fresh cookies the site just put on my computer during the new session. Should I log under a private window, nothing being written to my computer, log out is always possible. I'm also able to log out from my current session with an older version of firefox (50.1.0). This also close the session opened under Firefox 81. At the moment, only one site is behaving like this. I first asked the support of this site. Here's its reply: <<That is an interesting problem you have there! It might be that your session wasn't properly removed from our server but I know that we restarted our webserver 3 days ago, so that should have resolved itself if that was the problem. I don't have any other suggestions, but if a private window works, this suggests an issue with your cookie management of the browser.>>

Please may you help ? TIA

I've tried in a new installation of windows and firefox, if you load more than one digital certificates in the "your certificates" tab, the browser gets stuck in the first digital certificate that you have selected. No matters if you close the browser, when you open it again the browser acts like the certificate is already selected without being prompted when you try to enter a webpage that needs a digital certificate.

For example: Spanish Social Security https://sede.seg-social.gob.es/wps/portal/sede/sede/Ciudadanos/CiudadanoDetalle/!ut/p/z0/rU_LDoIwEPwVOHA02wIhciTGEJQmGkOEXkgDBeujPFqN_r3UO5y8TDKzk5kdoJADlewlWqZFJ9l94gUNSg8HPg4RTmOUbFGUkX0WekcvTjCcuIId0AWTG5gUdyQb0gLtmb6shGw6yA2OD66sj1XxUYtGVKzuFOQIz56gENdhoBHQqpOavzXkite8_DEpJo-DjOCgSjxrVjNplJk4B803LW-ahv_7FRfhdeBDf4vPh7QhKrLtLwe74DE!/

I have marked the checkbox "ask every time" and disabled any master password.

Any help is welcomed!

Since a few days I noticed on two different windows 10 PCs that firefox keeps signin out of websites (yahoo, linkedin etc), and this happens semi-randomly but sometimes more than once per day. My security settings never changed, I did configure firefox to delete history when closing, but preserving cookies and active logins. I also tried to add those websites to trusted sites (in the tracking menu, the shield to the left of the url). Any advice?

It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

Greetings Firefox Community,

I work from home as a warranty administrator for Mazda, Honda, Toyota and Volkswagen. They all seem to use either IE11 or Chrome as their online platform. When I use Firefox I can access all of the log in screens, however when I need to go to different pages Firefox does not allow me to go any further. I have no idea how to change the compatibility settings in Firefox. In IE11 I simply go to tools and then Comparability Settings and enter the page I need to access. In Chrome I can cross platform with no problem. I would rather stay with Firefox. Any suggestions will help.

Kind regards Gerry

Hi, I rarely use Firefox and on this PC I only access websites for work and have full antivirus since PC installation.

See attached screenshots...

Since few days ago Firefox suddenly started being slow and on some websites like www.3dcontentcentral.com (a 3D CAD website) when I type a search instead of providing results practically immediately as it did until a few days ago, the following happes:

1) it takes ages to get the results

2) in the bar at the bottom left of Firefox (where it shows what Firefox is doing in real time) it shows "transferring to...." and it scrolls through MANY different websites which have nothing to do with the website I am on (i.e. 3dcontentcentral.com), such websites includ Facebook and others with random characters. That does not happen with any other browser. AND I never accessed Facebook from this browser anyway and 3dcontentsentral.com has no reason to connect to Facebook or the other websites shown att he bottom.

That happens even if I run Firefox with ad-ons disabled. Only Adons I have are Duck-Duck and Ad-Block Plus

BTW, the only thing I have done was install duck-duck few days ago but the idea of duck duck. If anything that should have made the system more secure not less... :o

As mentioned I am always extremely careful to never click on any unknown or even remotely suspiscious website and aso have VPN and full business antivirus.

What is going on?

Thank you for all feedback :)

Firefox 81.0.1 (32-bit)

Everything was working fine until a couple of weeks ago.

Now whenever I go to a website which requires as login password it asks me for it every time whereas previously it just automatically logged me in.

Even more annoying is that the login boxes are already populated with old login details. However these are not for the most recent login details (username/password).

How do I fix this?

I had an issue with a self hosted website's self signed cert and the code it gave, it recommended I go to

Preferences > Privacy & Security > View Certificates > Authorities

and delete the offending trust. I couldn't find which trust it was I needed to delete, so I just deleted them all, assuming it would reverify valid ones later on, and the broken one would be fixed.

Now I can't access any website. Not even google.

How can I just reset all my SSL settings without resetting firefox entirely?

This is Firefox 82.0 (64-bit) for Apple Macintosh. No matter what I do, i cannot get Firefox browser to NOT STORE cookies, site data, and cache. I exit the browser, start the browser back up and cookies, site data, and cache are ALWAYS still there n matter what my privacy settings are. My expectation is that I want Firefox to AUTOMATICALLY ''''NEVER'''' STORE cookies, site data, and cache. I also want FireFox to AUTOMATICALLY ALWAYS START in private browsing mode.

What settings do I change in order to NEVER have cookies, site data, and cache ever stored and to always automatically start my browser session in Private mode?

The settings as displayed in my attachment do not work and have never worked.

Is there a solution to this?
