Hello I'm referencing the topic where TLS 1.0 and 1.1 support was removed but rolled back to accommodate some government agencies / sites and support for COVID-19 data

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1290040#:~:text=Mozilla%20and%20other%20browser%20makers,and%20performance%20of%20Internet%20connections.

Quoted answer "Right, support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 has been removed few months ago, but we reverted the change for an undetermined amount of time to better enable access to critical government sites sharing COVID19 information."

Since it was referenced as "undermined amount of time", is there anything currently on your roadmap/release schedule in regards to removing support again? I have some cutover decisions I need to make and knowing if ESR for example will remove this support in 2 months may effect the direction of those. If you have anything to share, i'd really appreciate it.

Regards,

-Chad

I want to be able to close Firefox and have all cookies and site data removed - but I want to keep my history.

Checking the box to do just this in 'Privacy & Security' will delete cookies when I close Firefox - but all the site data remains. Under 'History' I have 'use custom settings' enabled, as well as 'remember browsing and download history'. I've tried various permutations of this, but can't get it to do what Firefox says it will.

Being able to do this is one of the main reason I want to use Firefox, but it doesn't seem to work. I have to manually delete both cookies and site data.

Any suggestions to try to delete cookies and site data when Firefox closes, but remember history?

I cannot log into certain web sites using Passwords with Firefox. Yesterday I was unable to upload an invoice on the Kensington.com site. Today I am totally blocked in my city's municipal web site. https://www.newtonma.gov/ I am trying to report a missed recycling pickup at their "301" site on the front page, and I have an account, but it will not accept the existing passwords and trying to change it blocked any further efforts, giving me a dead end by saying any password I use with Firefox is invalid. It's not all sites but it is some sites. The problem occurs with both Firefox 99.0 and Firefox99.01. Using it on a Mac running Big Sur, 11.6.5

Hi Support help!

In the last few days or so it seems these notifications are showing up after I log off and the computer goes to sleep. When I wake up the notifications are showing in the right side of my Mac.

Now today they are even more aggressive and stacking up.

I've managed my Apple security settings and activated the natural firewall that comes with my Mac.

My Mac is up to date with latest operational systems.

My Firefox browser form Mozilla is up to date.

I've never experienced this problem previous and I've been using Mac since 2005. I upgrade every few years. and my latest Mac computer is about a year 1/2 old.

I have no other issues with my computer or my browser, Firefox.

I've been troubleshooting this through Mozilla support and have no add-ons or newly installed plugins.

I have no plug ins installed.

I've looked at my Firefox security settings and I did not have the pop-up blocker on but I'm not experiencing any issues with pop ups per se and I use Adobe creative cloud and have many other sites I use that have pop up window to enter data and perform functions so I'm not going to set it to cause me problems getting my work done since that is not even the issue here.


This concern is a notification that keeps showing up and I started by clearing my cache space On Mozilla Firefox privacy settings.

Now I'm asking to see if there is something else I can do to stop this notifications form happening. Its likely a simple answer I simply over looked?

When I go into my notifications on Apple Mac notifications are allowed and in many cases I need them but in this case as this recent events of odd spammy notifications on Firefox I don't need them unless they are real and I need to do something.

I did not click on any of them or try to open them.

These notifications describe needing to stop viruses, my computer is at risk, urgent with red caution symbols and other urgent notifications. My Mozilla Firefox account does not show anything like that and all my security updates are done for Firefox.

Help, please? Is it something obvious or am I needing to take certain actions?

I've cleared the Firefox cache in accessing info on the settings. And when I send this I will close and restart my computer.

Maybe nothing but a few days ago doing research I clicked a article that seemed fine in my search results but it took me to a completely different page and it asked to allow or not allow notifications. I clicked away form the page by closing out the tab.

They could be related but I haven't figure out how to stop it. Thanks in advance.

Arigato, Namaste.

I'm trying to make it so I can require a password to open firefox settings menu. I'm not talking about primary/master password settings for sites, I mean clicking settings from the upper right three bar requires a password.

I'm setting up a laptop for my daughter, and I don't want her to be able to fiddle with them, and all google will show is the master PW thing that has nothing to do with what I'm trying to do

Thanks in advance

Hi all :)

From a fresh Linux Debian Bullseye I try to connect to a local machine with Firefox (v97 64-bits) by its hostname (avahi server with default domain "local") with the port 6180 bound to a remote web service port (61 is the distant machine IP and 80 is the forwarded port).

When I want to open this URL : http://bionic.local:6180/ FF displays "We can't find this site ... Unable to connect to server at bionic.local ... check your network connection and firewall"

BUT ping bionic.local works perfectly and resolve the good IP address from the Chromium navigator the same URL works without a problem, I can open the distant web site.

This workaround works : add a static resolution in the /etc/hosts file : 192.168.0.71 bionic bionic.local => so FF works in the expected way for now ! But as I said this a workaround and a bad solution.

I supposed too the port was blocked because I accessed an unusual port. So I tried this without success.

How the hell make that FF v97 allows me to use an unusual port ? Or is it bound to the domain "local" which is no more accepted by FF ?

Thank you in advance for your help. With adelphity, lnj

I have been using Firefox for a long time. I can't even think of using another of those of the other browsers tht are so intrusive. I just noticed, and I think it is new,, that my history button shows my personal emails I have visited. Of course no one can go there and see the entire email massage without my login and pwd. But it is still awful - for example I just looked again and there is the security verification code - 3****2 - I just used to sign up for Firefox Accounts. So all my subjects of personal concern are right there for all the world to see what I am talking about with other people. I don't have anything to hide (right now) but I can imagine many ideas that I would rather not have snooping eyes able to see. I'm sure that many people with different lifestyles that me would be LIVID if they knew that their subjects of emails were available to be visible on an open page. - Here are some others in my history list: "Adrian-Your credit limit has increased--Chase..." "John L***** has joined your personal meeting room" "Lucky Brand Jeans + casual pants now buy one get 1 . . ." "Your Online Bill is available - Verizon Wireles . . ." - - - Like I said, I don't remember ever seeing history references to my personal emails before. I enjoy using the history button - it's much faster than going to bookmarks or typing in. I have looked at the subjects of help but it doesn't seem to cover this. I hope I don't have to go to the trouble of VPN or "Always delete history" - - hope you can help with a bug fix or simple setting. - - Jerme

Thank you in advance for your help! Background: I use FB container, do not have a FB account (although did several years ago), and have other privacy add-ons through Mozilla. I have 'high' security settings. Issue: When I am asked to create an account using an email address - the FB container pops up and indicates that if I use my 'real' email address (I have a few on different services) - FB can track me. Note that FB container does not pop up when using other sites where email accounts are required. Question(s): Can FB track me even though I don't have a FB account? Even if I use an email alias - am I still protected from FB?

I looked at Relay - but it looks like it needs access to your computer and complicated.

Thanks again. You are a great team of folks who volunteer.
