When I join a Google Hangout and try to share my entire screen, Firefox always prompts me whether to share a window or the entire screen. I always want to share the entire screen. But when I enable the checkbox for "Remember this decision" I get this warning: Firefox can not allow permanent access to your screen.

Why does this happen? Is it because I'm on a unbuntu or is it specific to ubuntu Catalina?

Hi All

I manage my cookies manually as I keep many tabs open permanently. Having to constantly log back in to those accounts would be onerous if cookies were deleted on close of browser. Managing this via manually adding the website exceptions function is also a drag.

Would it be possible to have a 'keep cookie list' that are saved when the browser is closed?

Cheers M

A similar 'not secure' warning had been appearing in Edge; clearing the cache eliminated the warning. Clearing the Firefox cache has not helped, nor has resetting. No warning has ever appeared in Chrome.

Windows 10. Firefox 102.0 (64-bit).

Any suggestions?

Update: I uninstalled and re-installed Firefox. The warning no longer appears.

How can I delete cache and cookies, but keep history, every time I close Firefox?

Under Privacy and Security I have Firefox set to 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' with no exceptions listed.

When I close and reopen Firefox, the cookies are correctly deleted, but the cache is not. I have to manually go into this setting to delete them. This also happens if I go to the menu bar setting of 'history/clear recent history'.

I want to keep my history of where I've been, but clear clear cookies and the cache every time close.

This doesn't seem like an unreasonable request for a browser that bills itself as being privacy oriented, but I don't see how to do this. Doing banking, I have to manually go into Privacy each time to get this done to clear the site.

From looking at previous answers to this question it seems the current way Firefox is designed this is "not a bug, but a feature".

Using Firefox 99.0 on a 2017 Imac.

When I start a private window on FireFox, that same private window still has all the browsing history attached to my "normal" FireFox windows.

Ideally, I'd like to start Private Mode and have FireFox start from "zero": No access to past browsing data.

Is there a setting that allows for this?

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.


When clicking advanced button there is no way to proceed:

Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.google.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

Please help me! Last week, was the victim of a computer scam. I called the 888# pop-up on screen. Looked so real w/MS logo and MS defender logo. I stupidly gave my IP address, name, cellphone #, (which I reported to MS fraud division and the FBI). (I installed a VPN, after the fact.) I can't believe I was so taken in by this guy.

  I went to my bank in person and gave them my new email address.  I tried to log in to my online banking today. Message "Secure Connection Failed. You are not securely connection to this site.Your connection to this site is not private. Information you submit could be viewed by others (like passwords, messages, credit cards, etc.) "
Now, I'm terrified that this scammer has access to my computer.
I'm afraid to access my online banking. He may even have access to my other online accounts, such as my cable, retail stores, etc. where I changed my email addresses and passwords.
Even if I can get "securely connected" how do I know I'm safe from these guys who have my IP address?
 What can I do?  Can someone please help me? Or make a suggestion as to where I can go to resolve this (if possible?
 Thank you so much.

Hi there,

I would like the option "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" to be enabled, but it appears that Firefox is actively undoing this change. If I go into settings and check this box, it will appear to be successful and remain checked until that session is over, but if I close & restart, the box is always unchecked after restarting. Is this a bug in the build of Firefox I'm running (102), or is this behavior intended?

Thank you!

I have two user accounts on my laptop. I recently changed the password for one account and I'm now locked out. All my data is in this account. I don't have any back-up keys etc. I have tried changing my Windows password, but this doesn't seem to work. Is there any way of finding my previous password, or re-setting my current one without losing my data?
