During an online transaction I get into a loop where Firefox reports "Firefox prevented this page from reloading automatically". I respond with Allow but the situation repeats. I have changed the settings to standard for this particular website, but the problem persists and appears to be the reason that the transaction eventually fails. What other settings or adjustments do I need to make to allow Firefox to automatically reload a page on a trusted site?

Certain sites (the latest being https://azgaar.github.io/Fantasy-Map-Generator/, which i've downloaded successfully from before) cannot be downloaded from - firefox gives the error of "[site] attempted to automatically download multiple files. The site could be broken or trying to store spam files on your device."

I know these downloads aren't spam or malicious, but when I hit the "Allow" button to give permission, there's no change. The downloads remain blocked and new downloads are blocked.

I've turned off my antivirus shields to see if that was causing it, but to no results.

I sincerely thank you for your time and know that you're quite busy, and look forward to hearing back about this issue.

Firefox supports Websockets, which allows servers to push arbitrary data to the client, instead of having to rely on polling methods via HTTP and JS. Whilst solving one problem, it creates another. I do not like the idea that any website can just ask Firefox to make a persistent WS connection without my consent. The same is true for service workers, but (unlike websockets) i'm not at all interested in using those. Luckily there's a configuration option to disable support for websockets, network.websocket.enabled, wich is exactly what i've done.

Is there a way to selectively allow websockets, based on IP or domain? If not, why isn't there one? Am i really the lone outsider who's concerned about security?

Buenos días Estoy utilizando una web cuya certeza de seguridad es absoluta, pero el navegador no lo cree así.

Necesito crear una excepción para la misma. Me conecto a través de una VPN en un navegador instalado en una VM. Todo funcionaba correctamente, hasta que hoy he actualizado el navegador.

Ahora aparece momentaneamente (entorno a medio segundo) la típica página que te alerta de que la web puede no ser segura, donde salen 2 botones, el que dice: "Retroceder (recomendado)" y el de: "Avanzado" para añadir una excepción. Pero automáticamente el navegador carga otra página que dice: "Uf. Tenemos problemas para encontrar ese sitio".

Este ordenador es seguro, está en una intranet (o más bien extranet) así que me sobra al seguridad. No la quiero desactivar al 100% por que hay veces que no uso la VPN, pero ecesito poder conectarme a esa web.

¿Alguna solución? Ya he intentado varias cosas buscando en google, y nada funciona.

Hello... EVERY time I try to sign into my Yahoo email, I have to go through hoops to actually get there. When I click the box that says ...never ask on this device again, your system ignores it. This "Added Security" is not helpful. nor is it adding any security to anything. All you are doing is making me look for other web browsers. Google Chrome does not do this. Safari does not do this. Opera does not do this. I do not need to be contacted via text message, OR ANY OTHER WAY, to gain access to MY email account. Stop holding me hostage!!

Please tell me how to get rid of this absolutely horrible "feature."

Hi all. I've been having a problem with Firefox (version 100.0) where the entire "Forms and Autofill" section is missing from the Settings page (the Privacy... page). And of course since that's missing, the corresponding features don't work either. Specifically, I'm trying to get the browser to save my address and credit card info.

I've dug into this quite a bit with no luck. I've tried disabling all extensions. I believe it's supposed to work with native functionality and not require an extension.

I've looked at these articles:

https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1220110 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1315704 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1324732 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-doesnt-save-web-form-entries https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/automatically-fill-your-address-web-forms https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Features/Form_Autofill

...which led me to verify that these settings are set correctly in about:config :

dom.forms.autocomplete.formautofill = true extensions.formautofill.available = on extensions.formautofill.creditCards.supported = on extensions.formautofill.creditCards.available = true extensions.formautofill.creditCards.enabled = true extensions.formautofill.creditCards.supportedCountries = US,CA,GB,FR,DE (I'm in the US) extensions.formautofill.addresses.supported = on extensions.formautofill.addresses.enabled = true extensions.formautofill.addresses.supportedCountries = US,CA extensions.formautofill.creditCards.hideui = false

The "about:policies#active" page says "The Enterprise Policies service is inactive", which I believe is the correct response.

The "Remember search and form history" setting is enabled.

On "about:support", the "Internationalization & Localization" items are all set to "en-US".

I don't know what else to look for. Very aggravating. Does anyone know how to make this work? It was working for me under Mint just a week ago, but I just switched to Manjaro in the last few days and I'd certainly like to avoid wiping my machine clean again.

Thanks for your help.

Firefox is unable to load module

I've been trying to setup a smartcard reading device, and I've gotten stuck twice on the same place.

When it comes to configuring the Security Device on Firefox, I can't access the .so file. Firefox merely shows the error "Alert: Unable to add module", but I've noticed that when I try to browse my files manually, trying to access the /usr directory returns an error (sometimes, I seem to not be able to get it consistently).

It also happens that the software I installed for the digital certificate tried to open an html with Firefox, which is located in /usr/share/, and Firefox doesn't seem to be able to load that either. It returns a "Can't open file".

Steps followed

  1. Open Firefox
  2. Settings → Privacy and Security → Security Devices → Load
  3. Insert path /usr/lib/libpkcs11-dnie.so and try to load (yes, I've checked that the file does actually exist)
  4. Receive Alert: Unable to add module error

Relevant information

   Ubuntu 22.04
   I'm on the latest snap version of Firefox: 100.0.1-1

I purchased an OlnyKey to use for two factor authorization (2fa) for social media and other sites. I set it up and tried to sign in to Facebook. Immediately a drop down window opened saying Windows indicated it had to be registered with Firefox. I clicked okay and followed the steps to create a PIN which I did. Then it said to touch my Security Key which I did and another drop down box opened stating the device failed to register.

I tried this three times, now what? Why do I need to register my Security Key? How can I see if it is registered with Firefox? What is keeping it from connecting to Facebook?

Everything I read and watch does not expose this kind of problem. I don't know how to see if the problem is Firefox, Windows, or Facebook! UGH

The image below are the details of my google account activity taken out from Google. The ip addresses in red I have hidden as they are my real IP. The rest of the IP's are not mine, and with a quick iplookup it directs to Sverdlovskaya oblast' in Russia. Now I dont think I used a russian vpn but there is a possibility I made an error. But what really strikes me here is the Firefox versions. At both the points 1 and 2, marked in blue. there is a change in version, in fact a downgrade from 100.0 to 96.0. How is this possible? I cant seem to find an explanation. And then it jumps back up to 100.0. I also another timestamp where it downgraded to 96.0, and then came back to 100.0 . I'm really worried about the possibility of a hacker on my computer. If someone can find an answer to this it would mean a lot!

Hello,

I believe this issue started ever since I upgraded my PC to Windows 11, and has persisted through a full reinstall. I continually get intermittent SSL errors of all types when visiting any websites. Simply refreshing the page temporarily resolves the issue, but I'd estimate 20% of the time when I try to load a webpage I get the error. This does not happen on any other browser, or Firefox on any other device on my network. Interestingly I believe this even happened on the same machine inside a Linux VM in VMware, but I'm not 100% I am remembering that right. So far, I have tried various fixes including resetting certificate authorities and changing Firefox to use the Windows certificate store in about:config, but nothing has worked so far. I'm all ears for any ideas.

Thanks!

I have several credit cards saved in Firefox. When I try to use the "Autofill Card Details" feature, I am prompted to authenticate my identity with my user password (that is, computer user account password). Upon entering the password, the prompt accepts it and disappears. Now, the expected behavior is that Firefox should paste my card number, along with other details (name on card, etc), into the corresponding fields. Instead, it enters blanks into all the text fields, clearing them if they had previously had anything in them. After this, if I go into settings and view saved cards - the cards that I have attempted to autofill are shown in the list of saved cards, but have blanks in all text fields.

I have had to re-enter all the card details several times over. I have encountered this bug many times at this point. Tried searching for posts with similar problems but have not found anything.
