Hi,

After reading on the new update with Firefox 86, it seems that you have made some really good changes on the way cookies are handled forcing each site to keep their cookie separate from everyone else.

So is the Is the multi account containers still useful in Firefox 86 if what I'm using them for is to keep from being tracked?

It seems that they would be useful if I wanted to open several different Gmail accounts at the same time from within their respective folders.

Thank you for your help.

I am trying to use the dictation feature on word (onedrive.live.com document). Firefox does not list the microphone, the webpage says I need to click on the locked icon (next to the URL). The microphone is not listed, in addition there is not a way to whitelist sites in the privacy settings.

There is no way to get the microphone working for the dictation feature in word on microsoft office online.

hello,

I use SAS University Edition to learn how to improve my SAS knowledge.

It's installed via a VM and once installed, you just have to type http://http://localhost:10080/ in the browser to open the SAS session. It worked for months, until new releases of Firefox. I disabled the HTTPS only mode on Firefox.

Now I get a Firefox error message "Cette adresse est interdite - Cette adresse utilise un port réseau inhabituel pour la navigation web. Par mesure de sécurité, Firefox a abandonné la requête." Forbidden address, due to unusual network port usage.

How can I log on my virtual machine? Where are the parameters that restrict the access to http sites and how can I manage them?

Thank you for your help, PY

I get a email from a web site that I have to log into on a regular basis.They are telling me starting today the web site will require TLS 1.2. I went to https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html to check like the web site informed me to do so. Click on Continue

Once the page completes the test, scroll down to the Protocol Features section. If Yes is displayed next to TLS 1.2, your browser will continue to work as it currently does with Talent Suite applications.

Mine shows 1.3 yes but not 1.2. I look it up 1.3 is not backwards compatible. So I changed the security.tls.version.max to 3 now everything for the TLS shows no when I run test I am lost

  Thanks for any help

This is not a question, more like a complaint, and DDG sent me here. The word complaint may seem inappropriate for sth like a browser which is the result of thousands of work hours of volunteers. Right? Thanks for that hard work, much respected!

Now, I did see that this very subject has already thousands of filed complaints, which naturally means that millions of people are annoyed about the very same thing, one that Firefox introduced some years ago. Fewer than few people even bother to write in, you know that. Because they feel, it's wasted time, "they do anyway what THEY want".

Maybe so. I write in, because I have hope. Still.

So: What is going on in the minds of "software programmers"/developers... since around the 90ies? Why always this PATRONIZING? Do you really, honestly, seriously, believe that you are any smarter than I am, or my neighbors, or you or your neighbors (you who reads this, probably not those who NEED to read it and act on it) ??

Well, I will say, for sure you are not, you are patronizing. And ADULTS. That's Grotesk!

I know perfectly well if I want to visit a site or not. And while I appreciate your concern about my health or what not, leave it at that concern, don't open it up to patronizing. Permanently. Everywhere. It's ridiculous!

I will add a screenshot here, so that YOU understand, this time. It documents that these "sw developers" leave NO option at all, even after you click this equally ridiculous "Advanced" button, to open a site YOU want. You as the owner of the computer you are using!

Such foolish patronizing is beyond words. To me. To many. I trust that at least words as clear as mine finally open up the minds of those responsible for this permanent annoyance. Yes?

We'll see. You're rolling out more updates than people change their pants. So, within a day or two we should see an update that will finally!!! STOP THIS PATRONIZING. Hm?

I would never use Chrome, the sniffer of everything. I am sad that Firefox introduces gimmicks all the time, but fails to listen to its user base. What THEY want.

And if you don't want to listen to what the users want, then why do you bother to write code for others? Just write for yourself then. Think. Amen. :)


You will deserve more praise when you stop this patronizing, this thinking, you are smarter than the rest of us. Not before.

Quoted from: https://www.theregister.com/2021/02/24/firefox_cookies_86/ ..."it's Total Cookie Protection With Some Exceptions, Handled Automatically" ..."Meanwhile, Google and its ad tech frenemies are racing to develop various Privacy Sandbox proposals so they can implement behavioral ad targeting"

I don't WANT exceptions! Behavioral ad targeting is exactly what I'm trying to avoid. I don't want Google shaping my searches and influencing my opinions by "telling me what I want to hear"...it thinks! Total Cookie Protection sounded exciting until I read this. How do we force it to work "without automatic exceptions"?

I was excited about this new feature because it might allow me to stay logged in to sites like Google and Amazon without their infamous tracking and search-shaping. If not this setting is pretty useless.

Hi-- I saw a banner while changing my Firefox settings that warned me about my organization controlling the browser. I found it strange since I don't belong to any organization and this is my personal computer, so decided to click and saw a certificate for "ImportEnterpriseRobots" (see screenshots).

Does anybody know what this could be referring to? Is it a privacy breach or something legit from Mozilla/one of my extensions?

Thanks in advance for your help!
