"Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

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

What can you do about it?

www.pinterest.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."

I have read all of the other threads about why Gmail will not work in Firefox and I have tried the solutions (although I could not find where to adjust SSL settings in firefox and the link does not take me to the original thread)

I just reinstalled my windows OS and firefox because of other issues. But this means both are in the default state. When I try to load Gmail in firefox it just clocks or does nothing. When I do the same in Microsoft's browser it loads up fine. I have security set to "Standard" I removed HTTPS only mode just in case that was this issue. I have the latest Windows 10 OS and the latest to date Firefox (102.0)

All other sites seem to load fine.

I recall recently discovering an option that allowed me to designate websites that I no longer wanted to see in my search results. I thought this was x-useful as it seems there are a few websites that frequently appeared near the top of the search results that were "come-ons"; that is when you click on the link in the search results, they only offered an option to "sign up" for access. I don't want to see this junk, and I did add one website to the list.

I've got another one I want to add, but I can't find the interface to add this website to the list. I thought it was a DuckDuckGo feature, but I don't see it anywhere! Is this a Firefox feature ? ... or have I lost my mind  :P

Every time I try to sign into my Google account (including related sites like YouTube), I'm rerouted to the Microsoft sign in page for my old university, and can't log in. This only happens on Firefox, if I switch to another browser then there's no problem.

So far I've tried:

  • Deleting all of my history including my cache and cookies.
  • Once I'm at the site I'm rerouted to, going into History, right-clicking on the url, and clicking "Forget this site."

Neither have worked. Any suggestions appreciated!

Since this most recent version of Firefox (102) upgraded my software on Jun 28, the Reddit website has not loaded correctly. All it displays is a blank page. Ad Blocker Ultimate registers about 1 ad blocked per second. This is the only site I've had this issue with. This all worked (as expected) prior to Jun 28.

An automatic update of Firefox which resulted in a "quit/create new profile" choice has removed all my bookmarks

Of the four profiles stored in "about:profile" three are identical (ie. have only the default bookmarks stored) and one, generates a "quit/create new profile" message.

The "bookmarksbackup" folder (in /home/user/.Mozilla/Firefox/zs1jki8t.default) is empty.

The "import/backup" option (in Manage Bookmarks) offers nothing to choose. There is no 'list of dated automatic backups.'

Firefox did not create an "Old Firefox Data" folder on the desktop.

Browser privacy "strict". "Never remember history" was selected.

So, I've migrated from Chrome to Firefox, and it's great, but I have a couple of issues now. One of them is with web push notifications from Google. First, I had an issue with notifications not showing up at all (or maybe they do show up, but the timeout is short and I miss them), but I've solved that with this in about:config set to tru:

dom.webnotifications.requireinteraction.enabled

Now, notifications do stay on until I click them, but when I click them, all they do is close, disappear. And I'm talking only about YouTube notifications, when I get them from other websites, they work fine, I click on them and the proper link opens.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Hi, Just installed Ubuntu on a new laptop, with Firefox. No add ons.

Have changed my homepage to www.duckduckgo. Have changed my default search engine to duckduckgo. In about:config my browser.startup.homepage says www.duckduckgo.
