Help!!! I exported my passwords today to a *.csv file. I have been trying to import them to the same brouser. I have checked the box to allow me to work with the *cvs file (I think), but have not been able to import from the (backup) file I made.

When I activate the 'allow import of passwords' from a *cvs file on Firefox, my only choice is to import a *cvs file from Microsoft Edge, Google, or other (different) browser. My file is an up-to-date export of the passwords, etc, in a *.cvs file today (5 October 2021)

The file is from the current browser which is up-to-date and *.cvs file. It is an export from Firefox.

I need my passwords to do my homework, etc.

Please help me! I've spent hours on this already!!!

Thank you in advance.

I noticed this when I opened - Settings - Privacy & Security then went to Certificates -View Certificates/Certificate Manager - first three tabs have blank fields, on Servers tab, there are entries, none matching in any way what comes up on the Enterprise Policies tab; on Authorities tab I couldn't find any entry that seemed like what was displayed on the Enterprise Policies tab.

ImportEnterpriseRoots seems to be the "organization" that is controlling my browser poking around I found the following;

{

"ImportEnterpriseRoots": {
 "type": "boolean"
},
"Install": {
 "type": "array",
 "items": {
  "type": "string"
 }
}

}

what does it mean that my "browser is being managed by your organization"? what should or can I do? TIA.

I always used Bing as my homepage. Firefox will not allow me to change my home page to something outside your defaults. I have tried your instructions (I already knew how to do it as I have used Firefox for AGES). None of those work. It hasn't worked for a number of releases. I want to have the home page I want. There is no "saving" the home page anymore. And just changing and following instructions (even the drag and drop) had NO effect. If it close Firefox and reopen it, I am back to the defaults. I am kind of getting to the point that if I cannot save my settings anymore I just think I finally need to switch browsers to one that does.

I'm enjoying the feature of the pinned "Amazon Search" on Firefox Home – not just a shortcut to Amazon, but a shortcut with a blue magnifying glass that adds the "search with Amazon" parameter to the main search bar and allows you to search Amazon.com without having to visit the site first. I was wondering if it's possible to add a custom shortcut for other search engines... for example, YouTube?

For reference, I have a custom search keyword established in Settings for YouTube – "@youtube". But I want to know how I can have that keyword pinned to my Home page, just like "@amazon" currently is.

Thanks in advance.

Firefox Color "New Tab Background Color" reverts to black when theme is changed.

If I'm using "Blue Theme by Valou" and then change the "New Tab Background Color" to a light blue (#b7dff0), the theme changes (when I don't want it to) and the "New Tab Background Color" does indeed change to light blue. Unfortunately, when I re-select "Blue Theme by Valou" by disabling the unwanted theme and enabling "Blue Theme by Valou", the new tab background color reverts to a default slate (nearly black) color -- the light blue background is no longer honored when I open a new tab.

Please let me know if you need more information.

I am having trouble accessing a site that doesn't support https. For the longest time, I could access it just fine through http, but now, for some reason, it redirects to https, no matter what I do, which just gives me a cloudflare error.

I can access it in other browsers by just editing the address to http://xyz.com rather than https://xyz.com.

I'm aware others have encountered this issue, but the proposed solutions do not work for me at all.

I've tried: -Clearing my site security preferences file. -"Forgetting" the site through my history. -Disabling my addons -Disabling 'network.stricttransportsecurity.preloadlist' and 'browser.fixup.fallback-to-https' in my about:config. -Ensuring that https only mode is not on.

A Refresh DID fix it... only for it to break again pretty much immediately after I reloaded the site.

This is exceptionally annoying, as I have my Firefox configured how I want it, and I don't want to swap to another browser. Any solutions?

I keep banging my head up against being excluded from using sites like Channel4 (UK) because there is no way to have java work!! Must I migrate all my browser traffic to edge? You seem intent on excluding anyone who doesn't code from your products nowadays.
