The message about the "Browser being managed by your organization" that shows up in Firefox settings, is new. I've been using Linux mint with Firefox for over a year on my own personal laptop and this message just showed up in my Firefox settings kind of out of the blue.. Can it be related to version 100? I was just trying to do something online. totally unrelated to the Firefox settings, and now I've spent a considerable amount of time trying to get rid of this policy. I tried to set the AppUpdate policy to true, but it still will not allow me to check for updates in the settings, or if I go under help, about. I do not use the laptop often, so this is the first time I've been unable to check for updates, and I would prefer not to have an enterprise security policy running on my personal laptop. I do not know how it came to be on the laptop but any help removing, or resetting the controls would be greatly appreciated.

I do not and will not manually close my browser session every time I want to shut down my computer in order to get it to do what it's supposed to. Linux sends SIGTERM to all running processes on shutdown. Firefox isn't handling this correctly, obviously, because if it was, then my settings would be getting respected. SIGTERM is the standard signal sent to windows that need to close gracefully and are expected to still be functional.

NOTE: Do not provide windows-specific support to this thread. I am not running firefox on windows, and I do not possess a windows computer or license.

Hi, As it is, Firefox remember the primary password as long as the software is open and the computer not shut down. This is a very serious security risk! Firefox should forget the primary password after a certain period of time, even when running continuously. At least Firefox should forget the password after the session is suspended or locked. Could you please add this feature in your next release. Sincerely, -- Pierre

Is it possible to turn off EVERY signle certificate check/verification in firefox?

  1. "Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE"
  2. "Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT"
  3. "Bulleted list itemMOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_MITM_DETECTED"
  4. "SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN"
  5. "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER"
  6. "etc etc... EVERY single certificate check!"

In the past it was really easy just start with "--ignore-certificate-errors". Now it's like moon landing, all options are hidden or have under a hundrred layer option list. Anything in the "about:config" ? browser.ssl_override_behavior 1 security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling false

(Please do NOT comment its unsafe and other things, that's not what I'm looking for)

Hello Everyone.

I've been using Firefox for the longest time I can remember. I loved it. And I also have found the Firefox Account function quite convenient and useful. Also an avid fan. However, as of two months ago, I needed to re-install my Ubuntu OS on my laptop and of course Firefox as well. I enabled 2FA as I did before and it was a breeze. However, when I started using it (Account log-in/log-out) I keep getting asked to have the confirmation via my email and NOT via the 2FA app generated code I registered with it. At first, I still have the patience for it. But after several months, I am already pissed off. It's such an unbearable nuisance already, when I always have my 2FA app that I can always refer to in a snap. I really hate what's happening now. Can anybody please tell me what went wrong with Firefox 2FA account and why it keeps bugging me for email confirmation and not use the 2FA generated code? Makes me think all my efforts in setting the 2FA app useless and I've had enough already.

Thank you everyone for your help.

Entire screen taken over by what I think is a Bogus security alert. Claims to be Apple Platform Security - *** ACCESS TO THIS PC HAS BEEN BLOCKED*** ... it has been infected with a Trojan Spyware This is followed by phone numbers to "contact Mac Support - 1-833-798-2936— (plus another number)" I have contacted Apple and APPLE SAYS: they would never send such a notice. IMPORTANT: This only occurs on FIREFOX. It won't go away when I shut down or even if I erase and reload Firefox app. NOTE: It does NOT happen with Safari.

I have a new Synology DS420j that requires a secure connection to let me sign in. ATM I can only sign in by scrolling back through my e-mails, finding the relevant one from my first sign-in with the new box and calling that one up.

However, the initial exception has since expired, and I cannot download/instal a new version of such a certificate.

Many thanks in advance!

I entered my password accidentally into the username field on a webmail page. It keeps showing several entries I made in the past every time I log in. How do I get rid of these entries? I searched the subject and all the suggestions of deleting it in the dropdown box with SHIFT+DELETE or CTRL+DELETE don't work.

I also use Vivaldi browser and I have the same issue when logging in to webmail. The list of usernames is different from Firefox so I know the lists are tied to the particular browser. I was able to delete the entire list with Vivaldi and I logged in to webmail and auto-fill list is gone. Can't do the same in Firefox. Please help.

I'm using the latest Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit) in Windows 10 21H2 (64-bit). I've got Enhanced Tracking Protection set to Strict so the new Total Cookie Protection should be working. To test this I went to https://www.grc.com/cookies/forensics.htm but it shows that 3rd party cookies aren't being isolated. Is this a Firefox issue or is this a problem with the website? Is there another website or way to test the new Firefox Total Cookie Protection?

Hello, I changed my Firefox Primary Password yesterday WHILE USING MY SECONDARY PC (as i thought my main PC was stolen).

I found my main PC today (it was not stolen). When i try to log-in it still wants me to use my old Primary password, and it is now requiring a verification code, every time I log into Firefox.

  - I cannot log-in to the Firefox account on the main computer by using my new primary password
        - but I can still log-in by using my old primary password + verification code

I can log-in the Firefox account on the secondary computer normally (by using my newly changed password) and I do not need to enter a verification code.

The log-in email address is the same on both computers.

The sync function is still working between the 2 PC's

I am very confused now, and I need to have the Firefox Primary password the same on both computers.

Your help resolving this issue will be greatly appreciated.

Thank-you, Geoff Parmelee [Email address] [Telephone number]
