Hello,

I have the current Firefox version (93.0) running on XUbuntu 20.04.03 LTS. Accidentally pasted the URL of a known phishing site (obtained from Phishtank) into the address bar instead of a VirusTotal search box, and it browsed to the site. Verified in https://transparencyreport.google.com/safe-browsing/search?url=https:%2F%2Fdocs.google.com%2Fforms%2Fd%2Fe%2F1FAIpQLSeAhelw8U_QuFyvJDmAn4aYM-H6QXYahD7ZjaFXC6CdyuxaNQ%2Fviewform%3Fusp%3Dsend_form&hl=en that the site is blacklisted.

I thought that Google Safebrowsing is enabled by default? (Checked about:config and saw that the "safebrowsing" settings that are bold are the ones with timestamps e.g. lastupdatetime and nextupdatetime.)

Recently, two sites have given me 'Secure Connection Failed' errors. One was 'SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE', the other 'PE_END_OF_FILE'. These sites have worked fine for years, now they don't.

Microsoft Edge has no trouble with either site.

I noticed this when I opened - Settings - Privacy & Security then went to Certificates -View Certificates/Certificate Manager - first three tabs have blank fields, on Servers tab, there are entries, none matching in any way what comes up on the Enterprise Policies tab; on Authorities tab I couldn't find any entry that seemed like what was displayed on the Enterprise Policies tab.

ImportEnterpriseRoots seems to be the "organization" that is controlling my browser poking around I found the following;

{

"ImportEnterpriseRoots": {
 "type": "boolean"
},
"Install": {
 "type": "array",
 "items": {
  "type": "string"
 }
}

}

what does it mean that my "browser is being managed by your organization"? what should or can I do? TIA.

Hi there! So, I wanted to ask, does resetting my Firefox Account password remove my browsing history, bookmarks, cookies, etc?

If it does, I cannot make a recovery key, since I do not know my password. If it doesn't, then I will reset it.

Thanks and see you later!

After updating to Firefox 93.0 , I'm getting this error constantly when trying to access my Ubiquiti wireless equipment:


Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to 10.1.0.1:8xxx. Certificate key usage inadequate for attempted operation.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE

   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.'


Everything worked fine before update, and still works fine on Chrome etc.

I've tried turning off all security settings (I think), but nothing seems to help.

I understand some security changes were included in this update. How do I reverse them, or even better downgrade, without losing all my windows, tabs etc (I run 3 windows and 100's a tabs 24/7, not keen to lose progress, or have to start using a new browser).

Thank you in advance.

How to get the plaintext of a Secret Key Entry in Mozilla NSSDB PKCS11?

I have a mozilla NSSDB PKCS11, it includes one of three things. Certificates, keys, and SecretKeyEntry. I would like to know the content of a SecretKeyEntry with the alias "StoreXKey". Firstly, is extracting the plaintext of a SecretKeyEntry possible? I seem to think so because of links: https://technosock.blogspot.com/2007/12/token-knowledge.html and https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/security/KeyStore.SecretKeyEntry.html#getSecretKey

First link gives a way to do it ( which doesn't work for me ) the second link gives us a few methods, namely .getEncoded() which can supposedly be called on a SecretKeyEntry to get the byte array information.

Here is my code thus far, all results hit a null pointer exception when using the getEncoded message. I am sure the SecretKeyEntry exists in the NSSDB.

String configFile = "config.cfg"; Provider provider = Security.getProvider("SunPKCS11"); // I am confused on how to incorporate the config file as well. /* provider = provider.configure(configFile); // Does not work */ Security.addProvider(provider);

String defaultPIN = "--.--.--.--.----.-...-.--"; try{

  KeyStore ks = KeyStore.getInstance("PKCS11");
  ks.load(null, defaultPIN.toCharArray());
  KeyStore.SecretKeyEntry skEntry = (KeyStore.SecretKeyEntry) ks.getEntry("StoreXKey",null); // Do I need a password protector here?
  System.out.println(new String(skEntry.getSecretKey().getEncoded())); <-- Error is thrown here. 

}catch (Exception e){

  e.printStackTrace();

} Any help / advice or links are appreciated.

I run my church's website and I noticed recently that all the pages using Google recaptcha and thouse connecting to paypal have stopped working, but only when the user uses firefox with the container option. Here's one page https://ststephensaz.org/parish-life/prayer-request/ on this page is a plugin that creates the form and it connects to the google recaptcha to keep bots out, but on the FF browser the google recaptcha never returns a green check or the visual verification popup. This used to work, but when firefox instituted the container security they stopped. This page works fine for all other browsers...

Hi all.

Trying to be safer on the web I use the Https- Only Mode all windows, though some trusted web sites I will allow to be exempted.

One is the Australian weather bureau website which recently stopped being a Https site. (www.bom.gov.au)

I have entered the following addresses into exemptions *Image 1 attached

http://bom.gov.au http://www.bom.gov.au https://bom.gov.au https://www.bom.gov.au

However on opening a new tab in a private window ... and type "bom.gov.au" *image 2 attached.

I'm taken to an error page (http://www.bom.gov.au/akamai/https-redirect.html) saying that the web site no longer is Https. (I tried entering that full address in exemptions but only shortens it back to bom.gov.au)

Interesting the tab still shows the little padlock that indicates the tab is still requesting Https Only Mode?

If I turn that to Off, I proceed to the site and then if I look into the Exemptions the following has been added to my list *image 3 attached.

http://www.bom.gov.au^privateBrowsingid=1 set to "Off Temporary"

(I tried deleting that full address line and re-entering it to set it to "Turn Off" but its fails)

Is there a permanent workaround ???
