21 Sep 2022 Starting today, when trying to open Youtube, Firefox began rejecting access with the message "Secure Connection Failed Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG". Only applies to Youtube, no other site affected. Updated Firefox to latest version, 105.0, still no access. Tried various proposed solutions which failed, ended up adding the Youtube URL to the list of trusted sites (first site ever added). That allowed Youtube to open. But when I tried to login to Youtube, I got the same error message. I added the login URL to my trusted sites, but then when I next tried to open Youtube, I was blocked again by the same message. Win 10 home, version 21h1, OS build 19043.2006 Help please. Axel Wilkinson

On my laptop, I run FDE as my daily driver, with the release version to handle my webmail. I also use portable firefox (from portableapps.com) as a browser to use while at work, from a thumb drive. While using that portable verison, I usually just go to google image search, and a work site that would definitely be secure.

My question: I don't like to update the installation on my thumb drive very often, and occasionally work computers are very slow anyways. So if I were to update it no more often than once a month, which version of firefox would be most secure: Release, Beta, or Nightly?

If doing this is just dumb, then which version gets updated less often--it would be Release, correct?

It seems with the 105.0 update all my saved logins and passwords went missing. Coming back to Firefox after the update it made me connect my account and use sync. However I don't use any other devices where information may have been stored. I tried looking for other profiles, of which there is only one, checking on my logins.json file for a corrupt version which does exist but opening it shows nothing.

Does anyone know a solution or workaround?

Thank you!

Every time I open FF bitdefender alerts to using this Condom to protect me. I do a complete system scan with various programs and nothing is found. Something is amok with either FF or Bitdefender. Who has the answer?

Hello,

I would be grateful, if possible, if you could help load a new PKCS#11 Module in the Firefox Privacy and Security Settings (under Security -> Certificates -> Security Devices ->Load). Based on the instructions from an electronic ID card reader application (eID Middleware), after installing the application I have tried to load a PKCS#11 module with a Module name /usr/local/lib/pkcs11/libEidPkcs11.dylib. However, I am getting the "unable to add module" Alert message from Firefox. I am using a Mac Book Pro with an 8-core Intel i9 processor, and macOS Monterey 12.6 version. I've tried restarting Firefox as well as the Mac, but it didn't help. If anyone knows how to fix the problem, I would very much appreciate it.

Best, Slaven

Recently ... ... ... about the same time I got a message concerning Thunderbird that certain systems will --- as of Oct 5 --- not allow e-mail transfers between the TB e-mail client and their systems due to TB [supposedly] using the older "TLS 1.0 and 1.1" encryption protocols, I got this message when I logged on to my primary e-mail server "MAIL.COM", so to check my e-mail and spam filters on their system, using Firefox 104.0.2:


This is what I get when I first log on:

Your browser is not supported.

We generally support the following browsers: Google Chrome, the latest version of Safari, Internet Explorer 11 and later, Firefox from version 33, Opera from version 10. To fully utilize the functionalities of your mail.com mailbox, we recommend using the latest version of your browser. Download Browser for free

The mail.com mailbox is also available with limited functionality.

(The browser they offer shows only for Google and Android Apps. Not for a "DESKTOP" version, to note.)


When I am logged in, I "AM" limited to "JUST" the e-mail section.

LUCKILY, I do not use their "CLOUD" or "CALENDAR" or other features, or I would "ALREADY" be blocked out of using such.

That FF does use 1.2 and 1.3, yet I "AM getting the above message and "AM" being restricted by "MAIL.COM" due to it claiming FF is NOT using the newer protocols, is there a fix to clear this.

Latest Firefox update 104.0 started displaying "This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised" again after previously being disabled. It's an annoying message that pops up on my intranet logins and I want it disabled again. I did the usual in about:config and set security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled to False and security.insecure_password.ui.enabled to False like previously, but the message is still there. It seems that latest update is forcing this message and ignoring the settings to disable them. Please help!

Taking a look at the screenshot attached below you will see the librewolf browser which is a fork of firefox, blocks system font detection by default. How does librewolf do that? I hope by reading your reply i will be able to achive the same outcome with firefox. I'm also interested on how to block system local time readout/detection with firefox as i have so far not found a solution to this issue. As a privacy focused person i do not see any reason why any website would be interested in the timezone of my operatingsystem. This information is most likely not even necessary for functionality. From my knownledge the android browser named bromite (source: https://www.bromite.org/) does block timezone detection by default, since firefox is a privacy browser i fail to understand why this feature is not included to the settings tab.

PS: I'm not interested to making any suggestions anywhere, i want to modify firefox to block both system font and system timezone detection, any help is welcome...

Hello,

I'd like to delete my Firefox account which I used to sync stuff between sessions on different devices.

The problem is, that the mailbox I used for registration doesn't exist anymore. But everything related with deletion of data (either the account itself or the "connected" devices) has to be confirmed via a code which is send to the registered email address.

What can I do?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Yes. "Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode" is checked. Yes. In about:config "browser.urlbar.autoFill" is set to false. It STILL does it! This is maddening. I'm trying to go to an address on my network for my IP cameras. http://192.168.50.65 (for example), and Firefox keeps changing it https! Then of course, it won't connect. How do I stop this? I hate having to start Chrome or Opera to manage these local addresses.
