the situation: we publish an internal wiki website in our intranet. the delivering server provides a certificate issued by our own microsoft active directory pki (root-intermediate-servercert). firefox is configured by gpos in order to use windows cert store, where root and intermediate are installed. but nevertheless firefox drops an error message ssl_bad_cert_domain and i do not see why. in chrome or chromium based edge everything is fine. no ssl warnings. as you can see in the attached screenshot the cert includes various san fields for different host names, which includes two ip addresses (anonymized).

any advice what do to is mostly appreciated.

thanks a lot peter

Currently on Firefox Version 85.0 (64-bit) using with Windows 10 Pro

Until recently (before Firefox updated versions) my cookies, cache and history, were automatically deleted on exit from Firefox with no problem. Now I can not delete them for some reason. Even when I try manually to "Clear Data" and also manually clear all History (all sub-menus checked to be cleared). When I restart and open an online newsletter, normally I have to sign in. I don NOT have passwords checked to be saved in FF options and never did. But now with the new version it just auto signs me into that website. I do NOT want my passwords saved/remembered, nor any of my other info, etc! It is really annoying and not secure if FF is now saving information we don't want it to! What is going on here? How do I resolve and get back the way I had it before the update? Please advise. Thanks in advance!

NOTE: I don't want to start from scratch by clearing out Firefox totally or messing with my profile. I have too much customization to start over from scratch. (That would be like asking somebody to reinstall Windows entirely when something minor goes haywire!)

I guess some of the paths are not fully supported. Like from nightly into release it is downloading and restarting the browser but update fails and starts all over again leading to a vicious infinite loop.

Hi. It's really annoying now. How can I disable autosaving "top sites"? I randomly visit 5 websites (FOR THE FIRST TIME) and 3 of them already shows up in my top sites. How the hell this stupid calculating works when I visit a website for the first time and firefox already thinks that it is a top site?! What the hell... Everyday I spend 20 minutes of deleting/unpinning those sites because I don't give a sh*t about them. And there's no option to turn it off. You can turn off the whole top site section but that's not what I want. I just want to disable autosaving or autopinning random sites. Where and how can I do it?! If it isn't possible then I'm done with Firefox.

This is super annoying. Apologies in advance. Brand New computer. Do not have access to old desktop presently. Did not export. Not an ideal situation. Downloaded & signed into my FireFox account & can not find my former computers' Bookmarks. Anywhere. Everything else (add-ons) loaded fine & am able to continue but for some reason FF erased everything. I've spent 4 hours reading through countless suggestions to no avail. Why a major company like this doesn't have 24 hour support is beyond me. Ha.

If anyone can help me locate yesterdays (literally) Bookmarks & everything else I'm missing from my FF profile, I would be grateful. Sounds like this is an ongoing issue. Been running FF since 2016. They have to exist somewhere.

Firefox 86.0b2, Windows 10 build 19041

I browse in permanent private mode, strict enhanced security.

When I logout of gmail, the permissions icon appears in the Site Info panel, image attached. When I choose X, the icon disappears; it says "a refresh might be necessary". When i refresh, the icon is back. No google cookie is listed in "Cookies and site data"

I refreshed firefox, reapplied my preferences. Problem persists.

I first noticed it this afternoon; it does not happen with Firefox 85, same privacy settings.

Is there something I can do to change this behaviour?

Thanks.

So, I just tried to get onto Twitter today, and for some reason, the site refuses to come up. I get a blank page listed under 'new tab', but no sign of twitter itself. I had to use Tweetdeck to get onto the site at all. Is anyone else having this issue, or know how to fix it? I just updated to Version 85.0 of Firefox to see if that would fix it, but no luck. Including a screenshot of what I'm seeing. If anyone can help, it'd be appreciated. All the other sites I've been to have worked.

Background

I have recently made a modification to my Firefox profile folder to allow the New Tab page to have a background image, but now I am noticing some strange behavior.

When first running Firefox it looks like this.

As you can see, for the sites that don't have a high-quality favicon available, Firefox uses a letter and the low-quality favicon. What I'm pointing out here is that the background for these is transparent.

However, when I open some sites and navigate around, I come back to see this.

There is now no visible letter and the background color for these icons have changed to white. I cannot seem to reproduce this, it just eventually happens after regular use.

This can be fixed by closing the browser and reopening it, but obviously, that's an inconvenience.

Question

Is there a way I can force the icon backgrounds to be transparent, or at least change the solid color to something more fitting to the theme? If possible, please let me know if there is a reason this is happening.

Note: I would rather not resort to setting a custom thumbnail for each of these because I like the way Firefox handles it by default. I'm just looking to fix the "ugly" white background that comes out of nowhere.

Hi ,

I am happy that now I can use Firefox with fillable /saveable pdf files most of the time. Unfortunately sometime I have a problem if later I open the pdf with other software: I filled the first 3 line of https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/cra-arc/formspubs/pbg/t3ret/t3ret-fill-20e.pdf and when I saved it and reopened with Microsoft Edge and Xodo some number are missing in the field "Trust account number". I refuse to use Acrobat Reader. Then I can not change the type of fonts or put bold. Could you please fix it?

Have a nice day

Why does clearing my browsing data delete the "top sites" symbols pinned to my home page? I use these sites every day and don't want to have to replace them every time I clear my browsing history. Other browsers leave them in place. Is there a way to keep them there unless I intend to delete them?
