Just hit an SSL-only site that I needed to access that FF 35 blocked. I don't see an obvious way to create an exception or re-enable it. We need this option... many users understand POODLE and can make an intelligent decision regarding the risks. TLS has its vulnerabilities as well.

In my company's internet it is problematic to use https. However firefox always defaults to https connections (e.g. when making a google search from the search toolbar, or when typing an address bar starting with "www"); therefore always bringing up an "This Connection is Untrusted" alert page and making me have to manually go to the address bar and changing the "https" to "http". In Google Chrome and Internet Explorer it is very easy to set the browser to use http instead of https. However, I can't seem to find this option in firefox. Any ideas?

Hi Guys,

I need to configure firefox for deployment in my organization, I have a .cfg file that i am currently using and i need to add another option to it.

I need to disable the secure connection warning "This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised.

The below shows how to manually fix the issue but i need this done for every deployment of firefox

To Remove the Warning Panels

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste insec and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

(4) Assume this login could be easily stolen and avoid re-using it on important sites

Thank you

Firefox 30.0. I'm not referring to a tablet or phone app - I'm using my laptop.

Since these permissions are on Page Info of all websites, what reason would they (any website) need permissions for microphone and/or camera? I'm into keeping as much private as possible. Along this vein, I was playing with About Permissions and had no idea I could actually block my location. It's great.

Thank you.

I got this message yesterday. I got this message on one of my other PCs quite a while back, and it was a date/time issue, but on this pc that is not the case my date and time are correct. Any help would be very appreciated.


This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.google.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.


Technical Details

www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Camera not authorized. Please check your media permissions settings.

There have been times where it let me through and I was able to test it but more often it refuses. Also have the same problem

using Facebook. When I switch over to Chrome browser I don't have any problems which leads me to believe the problem is with

Firefox. I've seen other people mentioning this but I didn't see any resolutions
