Dear Mozilla Community,

I would like to suggest you to make built in adblocker in Firefox. For example Opera have this feature so we don't need install any extension. People from Mozilla read subjects in support.mozilla.org? If not where I can send my suggestion?

P.S. I wanted to install Adblock Plus extension but I am afraid about safety so better option is to make built in adblocker to protect from malware. I think that this can be direction in good way.

Yours faithfully, Piotr

Whenever I sign in to Ebay or Facebook or Messenger using Firefox , I immediately receive text and email warnings about a sign in from an unrecognised computer, asking if it was actually me. This does not happen when I use other browsers (Chrome or IE) so the problem seems to be with Firefox. How can I get these websites to recognise my PC and stop sending me these alerts?

"The web site (XXX) does not support encryption for the page you are viewing" - but it does

I was just examining the PageInfo area in Firefox for our Remote Desktop gateway. When I first click on the padlock, it says in green 'You are securely connected to this site'. However, when I click 'More information', under the 'Security' tab>Technical Details, it says 'The web site (our site) does not support encryption for the page you are viewing'.

This seems strange - Firefox is happy with the SSL cert - everything green. The site has an HTTPS address, and HTTP is disabled. By virtue of it being an HTTPS connection, it's encrypted, SSL cert or not. If the cert was bad, and I clicked to proceed anyway, it would still be encrypted - that's what HTTPS does.

So what doesn't Firefox like about the page? Any thoughts most welcome.

Thanks.

PS neither Chrome nor Edge flag up anything similar, in their equivocal areas.

I found in 87.0 and now 88.0 that even after uninstalling and installing a new version, there is after clicking Menu/Options a message on top of the window:

" ! Your browser is controlled by your organisation" This is not true, there is no organisation on this PC. After clicking the link here is a new window saying there is a application active that is called "Disable App Update". After clicking "documentation" on the left side there opens a list of applications to modify the operation of Firefox. When clicking the Disable App Udate there opens a application text with on top GitHub and activities from M.Kaply Show/ Home Button Policy Strange that it says Disable Firefox Updates. Is this application installed by you? Are you perhaps 'the organisation'? Please let me know if this is safe or not.

looking on my iPhone, under passwords, there are many sites that say password has been compromised and to change it. The only way this could happen, I think, is if somebody got my Firefox password. Now if they did, they would still have to get my master browsing password, which is different and more complex. Is it possible to extract passwords from my account without knowing the master password?

On 84.0.2 on OSx.

Firefox will offer to save usernames and passwords, but then does not remember them in the future. Attempting to import existing data from another browser into Lockwise prompts a request to set a primary password first. Attempting to set a primary password (which is currently not set), yields the error message "Unable to change primary password."

Another user asked the same question May 2020 and nothing has changed. It is quite annoying to have Lockwise automatically name an entry often identical to the website address and sometimes just with the IP (e.g. http://10.0.0.1), and then to have no ability to change the name of the login :(

I sometimes have to go to the URL just to figure out what the URL link is. It needs to be allow the name to be changed to be able to make this more intuitive.

Can you please add this capability?
