Hello! A site kept popping up a confirmation window for an action I was trying to take, and in the confirmation window, there was a checkbox for something like "don't allow [this website] to prompt me again" (that's as best I can remember). I checked the box thinking it would just allow the action to happen without the confirmation window, but instead, the site just won't take that action anymore. How can I undo this setting? Thank you!

Since updating to Firefox 93.0, I notice that downloads from certain sites are being blocked, because they are using a basic HTTP connection, requiring me to explicitly allow each download. I understand that this is a new "feature," as explained here: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2021/10/05/firefox-93-protects-against-insecure-downloads/, however, I in no way desire this behavior. It is an asinine nuisance, and if I cannot disable it, I will have no choice but to revert to an early version of Firefox. My question, then is this: is it possible to disable this check, and simply allow all downloads? If so, how can I do that?

FF 93+ refuses to download M3U files from HTTP sources - How can I have it accept by default?

Many web pages provide hyperlinks to their audio streams using M3U or M3U8 files.

These hyperlinks are served via HTTP because popular media players, like Windows Media Player or WinAmp, don't support HTTPS.

Currently, Firefox refuses to download files via HTTP (see image attached).

I always need to manually unlock those files in order to listen to audio streams. This is rather cumbersome.

Is there a setting available unlocking downloads from HTTP sources?

I get this message when trying to print in Gmail.

I know I can disable the pop-up blocker altogether but I want to keep blocker on. I added https://mail.google.com/ to exception list but that didn't work.

Hello,

I am a college professor at University of New Haven, which uses the Canvas online learning system. Within Canvas, we have access to the Kaltura media content system where we can create, upload, and share videos with our students through the Canvas application.

This has worked fine until recently. Now, whenever I try to access my Kaltura media through Canvas, I get the following error message:

"It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies." (see attached photo for reference)

I assume there was a routine Firefox update sometime recently that imposed stricter restriction on third-party cookies. But I have followed all the instructions here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/third-party-cookies-firefox-tracking-protection?redirectslug=disable-third-party-cookies&redirectlocale=en-US), and I am still unable to access Kaltura through Canvas (I get the same error message).

FYI - I am able to access Kaltura through Canvas on Chrome, so I know this is a Firefox-specific issue. But I hate Chrome and want to keep using Firefox!

Is this something you can help me with?

Let me know - thanks!

When I would go into Bing, I would go into settings and change from "Moderate" to "Strict"; I would also uncheck "Search Suggestions" so suggestions don't fill in as I type. Then I would click "Save". Until recently, these settings held with no problem. Now after I click "Save" and go back to the main screen in Bing (or come back to Bing after being somewhere else), I'm back to "Moderate" and suggestions fill in as I type. Microsoft claims this is Firefox's issue and needs to be fixed at Firefox's end. Others are posting on Microsoft's answers forums, some also using Firefox, but not all. I love Firefox and I'm not changing to something else, so can you tell me how this Bing issue might be fixed? Thank you.

Something has been changed on my bank (America First Credit Union). There's a link to 'external transfers' that use to work but now just gives me the message, "We're sorry for this error.

I don't have this problem using MS Edge.

I've tried most of the remedies in the KB to no avail. This one flaw may make me kick FF to the curb. This shouldn't be an issue.

I have Firefox on the default update setting, and I have 3 of the most popular add-ons installed.

Why does it seem Firefox (Mozilla) is changing my home page to the MSN home page "https://www.msn.com/?pc=ACTE" about every 2-3 days. I have manually changed it back to the Firefox homepage 3 times now. I believe this may of started with the latest update?

Is Mozilla selling their soul again? - likely Or do I have a virus or is it an add-on - "unlikely"

Thanks in advance.
