Camera not authorized. Please check your media permissions settings.

There have been times where it let me through and I was able to test it but more often it refuses. Also have the same problem

using Facebook. When I switch over to Chrome browser I don't have any problems which leads me to believe the problem is with

Firefox. I've seen other people mentioning this but I didn't see any resolutions

In my company's internet it is problematic to use https. However firefox always defaults to https connections (e.g. when making a google search from the search toolbar, or when typing an address bar starting with "www"); therefore always bringing up an "This Connection is Untrusted" alert page and making me have to manually go to the address bar and changing the "https" to "http". In Google Chrome and Internet Explorer it is very easy to set the browser to use http instead of https. However, I can't seem to find this option in firefox. Any ideas?

As I have written many times before .... having a web browser automatically go to a website based on a word typed in the URL BAR is a security nightmare. There is no way to tell what asinine site you will end up on if you miss spell a word.

I have repeatedly removed the ability to search from the URL BAR from my web browser and FF keeps putting it back. Dammit!! My browser, my choice. Leave it alone!

Now the ability to disable it is gone.

Standard answer given: <quote>

I don't know what version you were using before, but web searching from the address bar goes back many, many years. And the way to disconnect web search from the address bar remains exactly the same:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste keyw and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the keyword.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

Now the explanatory line on the drop-down is relatively new; it probably dates back to Firefox 43. That can be hidden but not disabled. And there's really no need to disable it, it just tells you what will happen if you submit the current contents of the address bar.

<end quote> It is set to false. If a misspelled word is typed in the url bar it goes to a website.

browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete is not an option anymore - it has been removed.

If I type localhst instead of local host i end up on a Chinese site or a site selling me domains. If FF cant find a domain of the name given - say so - don't send me somewhere dangerous or unknown.

I just installed a fresh windows xp on my pc and I'm using the latest FF 26.0,but from the start i cant get to some pages,like in youtube,some pages doesnt come up and i get the "This connection is untrusted" page,in the technical details it says "youtube.com uses an invalid security certificate,the certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain is provided.(Error code:sec_error_unknown_issuer). also when i open FF add-ons manager tab Extensions,Appearance,Plugins and Services are ok but the Get Add-ons tab is not working,i get the same page as i stated above with the same technical details (instead of youtube.com it's services.addons.mozilla.org) and same error. I've tried all solutions on the web and on this forum like reset FF, adjust time & date, using the "Skip cert error" add-on, deleting the cert8.db file, and so on - none of them helped me with this problem. If it helps i use Avast! antivirus and window firewall,no other software on that pc. I'm pretty clueless about what else i can do,any suggestion that might help? Thanks!

On a Mac, tried to come back to firefox after many years but is there no way now to import my passwords from Chrome to Firefox?

On the support pages there are supposed to be: 1) an Import button on Password Manager - not there for Mac 2) Import password check box for when you import data - no there for Mac (only importing bookmarks etc)

Can I not use the csv file from Chrome in any way?

This seems to be a pretty significant way to deter anyone wanting to try a new switch, not on Windows.

In the instructions (here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER?as=u&utm_source=inproduct) I can see "Add exception" button that allow me to continue visiting website. However this button does not exists. So I'm not able to do this. I'm using Firefox Quantum. And I'm designing a website (project, for example https://someproject.dev) with self-singing certificate ('cause I want to use https). All suggestions from everywhere I googled was not worked (including settings in about:config or adding exclusions in settings page)

So my question, obviously, how to achieve using self-signed certificate.

Between two Win10 Home PCs, both used to have all my Saved Logons, but somehow one PC has dropped them all. Both PCs do use Firefox Sync between successfully, but while that synchronizes Bookmarks (& whatever else), evidently NOT "Saved Logons". So, isn't there some way to EXPORT all of them to a file, to then IMPORT them to my other PC? Incidentally, within Saved Logons, there is a button named IMPORT, but it's used is only for importing from 3 other designated browsers, and apparently on the self-same PC. Searching Firefox Support was a waste of time ... their 'results' are just wide nets of hundreds of irrelevant things, no matter how precise I attempt each search. Bad support job on self-help, Mozilla.

Firefox was updated to v82.0.2 yesterday, and since then I'm getting this error using Firefox to connect to my NetGear ReadyNAS admin page, which uses the original self-signed certificate. Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to anemone. Certificate key usage inadequate for attempted operation. This is the error:

Error code: SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem.

It doesn't even display the certificate or give me the option to "Continue anyway". I have to use Chrome to connect, which make me even more unhappy! With the previous version of FF, I could log into the admin page. I should have the option to accept that the connection isn't trusted, and continue to work. This NAS is in my home network behind a router and admin access is password controlled. That's safe enough for my purposes.

I ran 2 different versions of Linux Firefox from a Linux CD and Firefox version were not able to play HTML5 from Youtube. Youtubes test shows HTML5 not available. The version of Firefox was 61.x

Why would it not play as I expect HTML5 in to Firefox? Linux support seems to think a update is required but that should only occur if Firefox itself is dependent on the operating system.
