How do I separate search from address? I do *NOT* want Google or any other search engine to have every web address (URL) that I enter. When I search, that's one thing. Directly entering a URL is completely different. Firefox automatically updated to the latest: 89.0 (64-bit). Now the Firefox Home page redirects everything I enter in the search box to the address bar! This is a problem! This is one reason I don't use Chrome. How do I configure Firefox to stop doing this?

I stopped update to the new fancy Firefox, gonna stay with the 88.0.1 release (as I did with Thunderbird 68). Would be nice to have (just!) security update to previous versions instead of forced update to new clean features.

Those who are interested how to stop upgrade: put into your registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox] "DisableAppUpdate"=dword:00000001

Hi, I have been unable to access any google services (e.g. youtube, google) due to the following error message: Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue.

Web sites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.youtube.com because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

View Certificate

Could you please advise how to resolve this? I reinstalled firefox and that did not help. Certificates are installed and have expiry date of 2031. Other browsers are not affected.

I use CCleaner on a regular basis and have been for over a decade and a half now. With CCleaner, I have the ability to disable unwanted browser extensions. Typically, this works just fine but lately, I've been running into an issue where CCleaner shows several Firefox extensions that do not show up in the browser's options menu: Bing, Amazon, Google, Wikipedia and DuckDuckGo. I disable these in CCleaner like I usually do yet they re-appear in CCleaner as extensions when I open a new browser window after disabling them. Are these really some sort of hidden extensions in Firefox? And if so, how the heck do I get rid of them permanently? I don't want any of these extensions. Thanks in advance.

Dear Mozilla Community,

I would like to suggest you to make built in adblocker in Firefox. For example Opera have this feature so we don't need install any extension. People from Mozilla read subjects in support.mozilla.org? If not where I can send my suggestion?

P.S. I wanted to install Adblock Plus extension but I am afraid about safety so better option is to make built in adblocker to protect from malware. I think that this can be direction in good way.

I have been using Firefox for years now, but since an update a couple of months back, when I deploy a new internal site I receive an error stating that the "Secure Connection Failed" because of "Error code: SEC_ERROR_REUSED_ISSUER_AND_SERIAL". There is a official workaround explaining how to bypass this issue, however it doesn't work. I have tested the same sites with Chrome, Edge, IE and it always works why is Firefox suddenly not working? Below are images of my local lab replicating the issue.

I'm a brand-new Firefox user, just trying to import or recreate my login data from Chrome. Every time I've clicked "Import" from Lockwise and checked the appropriate boxes, I get a dialog box telling me that the import was successful... but Lockwise still tells me "No logins found." I do know that importation of some kind is happening because my bookmarks imported just fine. Prompts to save my logins still appear, but passwords do not get saved, as evidenced by the "No logins found" message where a list of my saved logins should be. When I attempt to create a login manually, I get a dialog box like the one used to create a Primary Password, except it looks more like a system dialog box, something from Windows rather than from Firefox (image 1.1). I've tried entering all the passwords I can think of into this dialog box--my OS password, my Firefox password, the password I'm trying to save, the password I would choose for my Primary Password if I had one--only for another box to pop up stating "Unable to change password" (image 1.2). Upon closing this box, a red banner appears stating that there was an error while trying to save the password.

One of the times I was trying to use Lockwise, a bar appeared at the top of the screen stating that I needed to use my Primary Password--which I didn't have and still don't--to access my logins. I can't remember what I did because I've tried several things, but if I figure out how to recreate that I'll update this post. I attempted to create a Primary Password from my Options menu by checking the box next to "Use a Primary Password." Even though it clearly recognizes that I don't have a Primary Password set, I still get an "Unable to change primary password" notice (image 2). I've tried resetting it, but to no avail. I have also followed the advice of all the relevant articles I could find (e.g., the help article on what to do if your passwords aren't saving), but nothing so far has fixed the issue.

Lastly--it seems like I'm getting the system-dialog-looking box about every hour or so, always twice in a row: I'll click "cancel," and then it will show up again. I also can't seem to log out of my Firefox account, as that same dialog box appears and prevents me from doing so.

What is going on here? Is there anything I can do to fix it?

That's something Chrome does for ages. If I'm logged in to a local account on Windows and I want to reveal any of the passwords Chrome is storing, it will ask me for my credentials every time I try to see one of these passwords.

Firefox just shows them right away, exposing dozens of passwords to whoever might be using the computer.

I'm attaching 2 images, one from the password manager in Firefox, another from Chrome. you'll see that in chrome I'm asked for my windows credentials when trying to see passwords

I can't open this application because I get a message that says: "'Scribus.app' can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers.

I searched the Mac App Store and it does not have Scribus. I can't afford to subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud and I need to be able to create page layout designs, which Scribus can do.

How can I verify that https://www.scribus.net/ is a secure application site? How can I open the application if it is a secure link?

The import of the logins and passwords does not work on new Firefox 88.0.1. I've switched to new PC and I installed the same Firefox 88.0.1 as on old PC. I tried several times to sync old PC and new PC without success.

I exported logins to a file on old PC and I enabled import from the .CSV files on new PC. That does not work neither as I got almost all imports errors. I attached the print-screen.

On new PC even when I enter manually login and password on page the password is never saved. It looks like Lockwise is completely busted. Please let me know when could you fix this critical error ?

Dear community, I have Firefox installed on Windows with serveral user profiles. I understand that firefox caches certain inormation in the Firefox/<profile name>/cache2 directories. I know, how to clear these directories. But there is also one cache2 directory next to the profile directories directly in the Firefox folder. This directory also contains several thousand files, which seem to be updated in a similar manner as the cache2 folders in the various profile directories. I would like to know, which information is stored in that "common" cache2 and how it can be cleared. Thanks
