Firefox is saving and offering to auto-fill login information (i.e. usernames) even though I explicitly ask they NOT be saved, and even though these sites are not among the list I allow through Lockwise. How can I forever purge these and prevent the problem from recurring?

This identical message is has been sent to Webroot support.

There are several websites which I visit on a daily basis both at home and work. At home and work I regularly go to Amazon and Google. At home I go to Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and others. I use Firefox at home and work. Webroot Internet Security Plus v9.0.29.52 is being used at home and a corporate version of Webroot is being used at work. Tonight I started the home computer up and found that Amazon required login credentials. I COPIED the login information from the Firefox "Saved Logins..." screen to log into Amazon. Instagram, et al. seemed to access fine. I performed a complete Webroot scan of my computer and one "threat" was discovered, but no information about this "threat" could be found. I then just went back to Webroot to get the version number for this complaint and it doesn't even recognize the fact that I performed a manual scan an hour ago. It thinks the last scan was 22 hours ago and it only took one second when in fact the LAST scan took over six minutes!

In order to author this complaint, I had to restart Firefox. Currently Amazon is the only website that has retained login information. All others - Google, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr AGAIN require logins! AGAIN, I can go to the saved logins within Firefox, COPY the credential information and PASTE it into the appropriate fields in the appropriate website and I'm logged back in...for now.

PLEASE explain to me how this information is continually being wiped clean and if Webroot isn't doing it, then what is, since Webroot is telling me my system is clean.

Thank you.

I have chosen to delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. However I want to make certain exceptions. That normally works fine.

However that are certain sites that are listed in the "Managing Data"-list that are not proceeded with a "https://www...", a typical example is "google.com".

I have not been able to add such sites to the exceptions.

If I just write "google.com" in "Address of website", and choose Allow, the system automatically adds a "https://www.../ in front so the exceptions list looks like . . https://www. google.com . and the cookies listed as google.com are deleted when I close Firefox.

How can I add such sites to the exceptions?

My electronic certificates have disappeared from the firefox container: A few days ago my electronic certificates have disappeared from the firefox container The certificate provider has vetoed me from delivering a new certificate, because it is the second time Firefox has lost a certificate in 2020. The certificates I need for any management before the administration of Spain and more now with the COVID After it is granted, you have to verify your identity with the Tax Agency, and they have already called my attention for renewing the same year a certificate that firefox loses when it is updated. I'm very, very pissed off I will have to switch to Chrome

Firefox upgraded recently to 81.0.2. After the upgrade I can no longer connect to my bank’s web site. Firefox displays this failure message:

Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to xx.xxxxxxx.com The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

The bank’s customer-no-service help desk politely advised that their system is working, this is a Firefox problem, check the Firefox browser settings, use another browser.

I am not a browser security settings expert and do not want to be . . . I have no clue as to how to fix this . . . so what do I do?

Can I revert to the previous version of Firefox? How? Thanks.

I have been using MOZILLA / Netscape/ Firefox Since 1996/7. Periodically I have a problem . LIKE RIGHT NOW I have to use Chrome to contact you because your latest version is seriously corrupted and under attack from ; "attachappstreams.best You already know that because you've got a web page warning us of it. But you don't have a way to fix it. No matter how many times I delete it. Reboot my Windows 7 desktop. Or open and close the latest version of Firefox. That damn phony update keeps popping up with bells and blue screens and I can't use your browser until YOU GUYS figure out how you screwed up and gave them access. ADD ons and Ad blockers are equally dangerous and I limit them to only 2 for the past 5 years. Get a handle on the is , guys/gals . Or sadly, because I really don't like Chrome. But what choice do I have. FIX IT. IT Quickly. Or you're going to lose serious market share. Just like you did to Internet Explorer 20 years ago.

I found out, that the getUserMedia Promise in Firefox only resolves, if the Tab is active or by clicking on the Tab Instance: (Firefox, 81.0)

navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({ audio: true}).then(() => console.log("done"))

Otherwise, the Promise never resolves or rejects. Is this a bug or a feature, and where is this documented? Is there a media Config setting, to tell Firefox to allow getUserMedia Promise to resolve in non-active Tabs? Otherwise this looks like a bug for me...
