HTTPS overkill by Firefox

Later version refuses to connect to my modem, and goes into security web mode. This modem uses HTTP/HTTPS for access, i.e., connects directly it's IP address, then the user enters a username and password. At that point, the the modem switches to HTTPS for control.

With this recent update, there is NO WAY to access the modem for any work, or upgrade the HTTPS certificate on the modem. This is a BUG.

What should happen is that if the web site will accept a HTTP connection, Firefox should NOT refuse connection or test for security issues UNTIL the user or the device switches to HTTPS.

As an aside, I've used Firefox on this Zywall modem for years until recently.

Idk why but sometimes firefox just doesn't prompt to generate secure password, I even have to download some extensions to generate secure password (Secure Password Generator) meaning more secure issues.

My guess is that you guys probably hardcoded something like {if "type: password" then prompt}, but it's still partly fault at developers too for bringing these huge chunks of javascript.

In screenshot there's element examaple in which i input password but no prompt whatsoever.

I'm a hobby-programmer not trained. My doc is local php file, saving calendar events to text files, run on localhost. The field in question is a line number on my calendar. Javascript uses that number to load another input with the calendar entry so I can confirm that it's the correct line before submitting it to PHP for deletion. I have unchecked 'Remember search and form history', ran 3 cleaners, restarted the computer and the data is (correctly) not displayed. But it is not deleted. When I rechecked 'Remember search and form history' the old input data comes back. If I change id, field name, javascript function name and variable names the history disappears but when I restore those names, the history is back. I want to know why that input can't be permanently deleted. Windows 10, Firefox 103.0.2 (64-bit)

I cannot add a secondary email or change my primary email without a code but my primary email was deleted by the company after my free trial ended.

I’m still logged into my account on the app but I had to delete and reinstall the desktop version because FireFox glitched and wouldn’t open.

I don’t know if the photo of the company saying my email no longer exists when I try to log in shows up, doing all of this on my phone.

I opened Private window in Firefox desktop browser for Mac, to login to gmail account. After few minutes of usage, I closed the Private window. When I opened a new Private window the 2nd time and open gmail.com, I could see I am not signed out of the gmail account. This is breach of privacy and highly unacceptable.

Why is my account still logged in, even while using Private window? What if I was using this in a public computer? Utterly scared now of my privacy and security in using Firefox.

I want to set a timeout for the master password. It's clearly a security threat to leave passwords unencrypted. It bothers me more than being prompted for the master password.

I remember we used to be able to set the timeout and it's a pain to go and logout the software security device after logging in to the one thing that needs the master password.

Maybe someone knows the answer to the following:

When I visit Dailymail.co.uk, it shows a video clip (there is a link in the video box to play the 'full video') but there is no audio:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11174031/Meghan-Markles-Archetypes-knocked-No-1-spot-Spotifys-podcast-rankings.html (3/4 down the page-It is a Meghan Markle video).

I am using Firefox and I went to the Autoplay option and selected 'Block Audio And Video.'

1. Is the clip 'still playing' because it is not 'technically' a full video or am I missing a detail?

Answer:

2. On Facebook, the 'GIF Videos' play automatically until I click the video (in order to stop it)-Why is that?
