I keep getting rerouted to a malicious McAfee Antivirus software page stating my computer has 5 viruses and my Mcafee subscription has expired, etc. I don't have that software & NEVER plan to use it. How do I block the URL from loading? This should be SIMPLE in the Mozilla settings, can't find anything regarding web filters or page blocking.

Please someone help me with this. My primary email has been breeched and because I was honest with the service --instead of just saying I need help resetting my password. Thay are asking me to send them a copy of my drivers' license and a photo "selfie" of myself to recover my account.

This is where I draw the line -- all invasions of privacy we have learned to live with but not this -- I could give them the transaction ID from my last Payment from Paypal period -- but that was not good enough. If I was being deceitfull I could easily provide the crdentials they ask for and it could all be fake; so I told them to get lost as I was paying for the Premium service anyway. I can contintue to use that as my ID but sonner or later someone is going to want to send me a code there and I can't retrieve it. Tonight they did not ask so I was able to get in here.

Everybody has a place to change your password but few have a place to change your sign-in ID. If I can get back into Firefox with a new ID and set 2 step validation I shouls be okay as faras the average user gors. The other option that I know of is to stary a new Firefox account. I alread have a lot of people and business's that I have to get my new email to.

Thanks To Anyone with any ideas.

Sincerely Paul

All of a sudden I can't open a certain website. I opened the website a few days ago with no problem and have been using the site for years. (I checked to see if the site is down but it's not.) I googled how to unblock websites in Firefox and nothing I've tried works. I disabled Trackers for the website and I cleared my Cookies. I added the Firefox uBlock extension a few weeks ago to stop constant website popups (after I tried resetting Firefox) and I turned uBlock off for this certain website but I still can't access the website. I also installed Mozilla VPN last week. I'm using Firefox 122.0.1. What could be the problem?

Hello, I'm seeking assistance with my website, https://blogbuzzz.com/, which I frequently access and manage using Mozilla Firefox. I've been encountering slow loading times, formatting & Security warning issues. This issue seems to be specific to Firefox, as I don't experience it in other browsers. Could you please help me understand why this is happening and how to resolve it? Any insights into browser-specific settings or adjustments that I need to consider for optimal website performance in Firefox would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!"

This is more of a suggestion than a question, unless there is a hidden feature that I was not able to locate.

I know that the Master password helps to make sure that my password is safe. It would be also be nice if the next release will prevent to open a website that has a "stay signed in" window.

Hello,

While in my internet banking it is not possible to copy/paste the IBAN, the sum or just the name or anything. No matter if I used the context menu copy/paste function or the keyboard shortcuts. I am trying to copy from a Google Drive opened text file or a template saved in my online banking.

In Chrome there was no issue with copy/paste.

Outside of my banking, there are no issues with copy/paste.

I expect it is a security setting somewhere, do you know which one it is?

Thank You!

Although strict privacy is set, I am able to logg into websites, although lock icon displays message "Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla"

Hello,

NOTICE: Currently using Firefox 120.0.1 "Update disabled by your system administrator" I am unable to update the browser, the computers are from the public library.

Like I state in the Subject, I configure the browser to strict privacy level, and I am able to visit any site I want. No problem. But on all of these, when I click the lock icon on the address bar I read "Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla." In fact, right now, I am visiting this website and I got that notice. View image "Firefox broser does not recognize the certificate issuer fortinet but I can visit the firefox suport website - Screenshot 2024-01-28 172732.png"

WOW... View the image "certificate issuer not recognized by Firefox - fortinet - when visiting support.firefox.com - Screenshot 2024-01-28 173041.png" for some of the info I get if I view more information about the certificate.

Then, after I logged out, the "Clear cookies and site data" link that appears after clicking the lock icon I mentioned before do not appear.

View the image "UNable to clear cookies and site data - proton.me - Screenshot 2024-01-28 141951 - edited.png"

In this same computer, I got the control "Clear cookies and site data." View image "able to clear cookies and site data - virustotal.com - Screenshot 2024-01-28 141825.png"

So more than one question:

I read other posts where users are unable to visit a website which has a certificate issued by an issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla. Why am I able to visit these websites?

What can I expect of the non appearing "Clear cookies and site data" link I described before?

Are these computers like totally hacked?

I use a password manager. Many of the web-based services I subscribe to use my email address as my user name - this is quite common.

When I am trying to login to one of these pages, your "Let Firefox hide your email address" message pops up over the selection box from my password manager. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to remove your message - which, in this context is totally inappropriate - but your message prevents me from logging in to my account when I need to choose between identities (example, work and personal).

Can I turn these messages off? or can you add a simple "X" to the window so I can close it without that action being picked up by my password manager?

Help!!! After using this profile to sign in here to ask a question yesterday, upon restarting Firefox today it has deleted my entire login history, cookies and all passwords. However, when I go to recover these, the only default profile I can find when I do an "about:profiles" is one that is five years old.

I can literally no longer access any of the sites I use because al of the logins are gone.

Help! How do I get all my data back? My life is over if I cannot access any of my business sites, emails, Paypal, Amazon accounts or anything.

Firefox version 122.0 Mac: Sonoma 14.1.1 apple silicon

The problem emerged about a little over a year ago (around September 2022). It started with an installation of firefox on another machine running BigSur, and I guess the problem got ported when I restored a time machine backup on this current machine. I attempted to troubleshoot the issue by following mozilla support and reddit threads but to no avail. I, at the time, settled on monthly time machine backups, but now finally decided to address it properly.

Troubleshooting steps that I have followed:

  • going into the about:config page and changing the places.history.expiration.max_pages and places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages to 2147483647 then to 999999 after reading about how a value too high might be ignored (both values didn't seem to change anything)
  • going into the about:config page and changing the places.history.expiration.transient_optimal_database_size to 85534800
  • removing the add-on/extension manager as seeing that it might remove history for some reason (from a [thread] by IceTemple)
  • In the privacy and security tab, history is set to Firefox will use custom settings for history

Things I suspect might be the problem:

  • I originally used the Chinese version of firefox (downloaded from the .cn website) and reinstalled the international version (from .com) after getting annoyed by the built-in ads. For convenience sake, I ported the profile folder over which might have carry the problem over. That being said, I don't think this problem existed when I just started using firefox but appeared awhile later.
  • result of an update, don't know which though
  • certain extensions (I haven't went through them individually since I installed a lot)

My questions:

  1. How to stop Firefox from doing this ever again?
  2. Alternatives of storing history if nothing works
  3. Why did my troubleshooting steps not work? Is there something wrong with my version of firefox that prevented the about:config changes from working?
  4. If I have to resort to backing up the places.sqlite history file, how do I restore/reintegrate them with current history file?

English isn't my first language so I apologize for any confusion that may arise due to how I articulate. Any help is much appreciated
