I downloaded something from download[dot]com (I'm not typing in the address because I don't want anyone to link there without proper warning). I've searched and done *everything* I've found for removing this extension. MBAM, Spyware Terminator, Windows Defender (I'm on W8 and it's built in, so no reason not to use it), uninstall manually, nothing.

It's not listed *anywhere* on my computer. But while searching, I did find something. It creates a Windows Task object that re-installs the extension and it's component software (i.e. a separate program that collects user data) on startup if it's removed.

Can anyone provide help? I've even found the solutions listed here and they don't work anymore.

EDIT: for anyone else reading this, you have to find and delete the global folder that the extension has placed itself in.

I'm no longer getting Allow and Remember prompt. I have to manually click the red icon in the upper left to access it. How do I restore the automatic prompt?

Yesterday I visited a site to which I often go, pingtest.net. Normally, when I visit that site, a thin horizontal bar appears at the top of the browser viewing frame. I do not recall what it says, but it stretches the entire length of frame, from left to right. On the right edge of the bar is an x, if I wish to close it. In addition, when this horizontal bar appears, I also get a box which is about six to seven times the height of the thin horizontal bar that appears over the left edge of the thin horizontal bar. This box stretches across the width of about a sixth or fifth of the width of the horizontal bar. It contains something like the following: Show All, Allow, Allow and Remember. I normally click the Show all option, and I normally select Allow Now for all options.

Here's what happened yesterday: I went to pingtest.net, the horizontal bar appeared, and everything seemed normal. However I took no action. Instead, I changed my mind and decided to go to a different URL. My cursor was in the middle of the screen. I moved the cursor up to what I intended to be the URL field, in order to enter a new URL. Unfortunately I didn't move the cursor sufficiently. So, instead of clicking in the URL field, I clicked right in the middle of the horizontal bar. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I CLICKED BUT FROM THAT MOMENT TO THIS THAT HORIZONTAL BAR HAS NEVER RE-APPEARED. WHATEVER I CLICKED, IT APPEARS I INSTRUCTED FIREFOX TO NEVER PROVIDE ME WITH THAT HORIZONTAL BAR AGAIN!!!

As a result, I am also no longer getting the grey box with the Show All, Allow, Allow and Remember options.

How can I restore normal behavior, and get the normal horizontal bar and the normal box with the Show All, Allow, Allow and Remember options?

This is a strange problem that I have only encountered on a few sites; it is consistently happening on a specific game website (quakelive.com).

Anyway, I have my password for my account saved. When I log in, though, the Firefox does not auto-fill the login or password fields. If I enter the login, it still does not auto-fill the password field. I know that Firefox knows the password, because if I enter the wrong one (as I frequently do), I get a pop-up with something like "Would you like to update the saved password on...?" Well, no, Mr. Firefox, I wouldn't like to update it, but I *would* like you to fill it in if you know it (which you do).

I've checked and double-checked all of the basics in the other articles; I am fairly confident that all of my password and security settings are correct. I rarely have problems on other sites, though I do recall it happening elsewhere before (quakelive seems to be the primary culprit here, and it may be a specific issue with that site). I can always go into the password manager and find it, but that sort of defeats the purpose.

Any ideas?

Hi everyone,

For some unknown reasons, I can't get the password manager visible when I enter a new password on a web site. So no password recorded and I have to fullfil all the information every time I need to enter into my accounts. I tried to restart FF with the safe mode enabled, all add-ons turned off. That doesn't work better. I use AVIRA antivirus, FF 45.0, Win 10 (64). It seems I don't have a software which could create a problem. I have no idea where the problem is... Moreover, I can't find any topic relating to my precise case on the forum.

If someone has an idea, please, let me know. I would appreciate. Thanks in advance. Kind regards,

Recently I had to reset my general domain password (organization is split between production and general domain\network without domain trust, proxy is part of general network, I'm part of production so we have to authenticate to proxy). I have to do this every 6 months. After this last change, and after I input my credentials, Firefox 62.0.3 (and 62.0.2) no longer pops-out the "remember my password" option. 1. Option "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is on 2. Proxy is not on the list of exceptions 3. Yes, I have removed old authentication from the list of "Saved Logins" 4. Yes "Firefox will remember my History" If I input my new username and password (which is asked only once during session), Firefox works just fine until I close it. Next time it starts, Firefox once again asks for username and password and do not offer to "remember" this credentials.

Thank you.

Yesterday I went to my history to locate a prior site I had visited. There was only 1 site in history, which of course surprised me, and it was to CapitalOne.com/link accounts. This is my credit card company. I removed Firefox from my Macbook and then re-downloaded Firefox and installed. Nothing has changed. My settings are correct, meaning that I should be able to have sites visited in history, yet only the one site populates, and I've been to a lot of sites today....the credit card/link accounts site is the only site that is in history. You can imagine how nervous I am right now about doing anything on line. I sure hope that someone will help out here.

Firefox is forgetting my two-step google logins. On the google two-step verification page, there's a checkbox which says "Don't ask for codes again on this computer."

But firefox keeps asking for codes.

i have firefox set to clear cookies on closing.

i also have the urls below set as exceptions, in two places:

    -in about:permissions, they are all set to allow, and also to keep offline data without asking
    -in options/privacy/exceptions

mail.google.com maps.google.com calendar.google.com www.google.com shopping.google.com plus.google.com

  • .google.com

google.com gmail.com

this forum is messing up my list, above. Each url is a separate item in exceptions. The bulleted one actually starts with a star. (good job mozilla, thanks for this ancient text editor)

how do clear all cookies EXCEPT the ones above, when i close firefox? Or, is this not a cookie problem?

do i need to include "http://"

I'm developing a web app. Currently, I'm using a self-signed certificate (getting it properly signed comes later).

When I have the web server set so that it only accepts TLS1.1 and TLS1.2, I'm getting a SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP error. And, of course, trying the 'use outdated security' link doesn't work, since the web server won't allow those connections.

If I temporarily allow insecure connections on the web server, Firefox will then allow me to accept the cert. After the cert is accepted, Firefox can then connect over only TLS1.1 and TLS1.2. So, most of the time, Firefox can find a common cypher for TLS1.1/1.2 connections.

(The web server is on an Ubuntu kernel, with OpenSSL1.0.1f.)

As captured in the long thread "What's the difference between ALLOW and ALLOW for a SESSION?”, with a lot of handholding from jscher2000, I managed to set custom choices for privacy and security the way I wanted on my mac computer (blocking all cookies in all windows, with exceptions saved for ALLOW, ALLOW for SESSION and some for BLOCK). To accomplish this, required enabling deletion of cookies when Firefox closes.

My assumption based on information I got in the above mentioned thread, was that even when deletion of cookies is checked for when Firefox is closed, cookies for websites identified as exceptions with ALLOWED, are not deleted.

However, this is not what happens. A specific example is tripcheck.com, which stores custom itineraries for cameras in cookies. I setup quite a few of these custom itineraries and saved them and they were OK until I closed Firefox, when they were deleted, as the cookie was deleted. This website is setup as ALLOW in the Exceptions list.

As explained in the above mentioned thread:

"(2) Scenario Two

[X] Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed (checked)

Firefox shortens cookie expiration to session only unless the site has an ALLOW permission in the exceptions list. “.

I am more confused than ever, the settings do not appear to be working the way they are meant to work, not only for session cookies but also for what should be "permanent".

Am I doing something incorrectly or am I misunderstanding how setting should work?

If cookies of websites setup for ALLOW are deleted when Firefox is closed, the setting is defeating what I am trying to accomplish: saving cookies for websites that I use and save data in cookies (such as recognizing the computer, what’s needed for 2 step authentication, etc.).

Thanks.

I went through all the add ons and any extensions I could find that were suspect and disabled or deleted them This began after I had downloaded the latest Firefox. Now the browser does not work right, and I get these security certificate notifications on every site I go to - even on Firefox support. There were some programs that downloaded with the Firefox program and I have disabled all but Systweak. This is the only thing I have downloaded, and I even went back and trashed the first installation of Firefox and then went back and re installed it. I have ran the security software program that I have through the internet provider and nothing came up. ??? I am posting in Google Chrome.
