I have created a page (https://wp.me/s20nYT-dustind) with a password protect, in July 2022. The password box appears in both Chrome and Edge on a PC, and Safari on an iPhone, but the page opens without a password in Firefox.

Any help that anyone can provide is appreciated beyond expression. Thank you in advance.

I recently installed Firefox 102.0.1 64-bit on a new WinX laptop. Using the same link as always (http://www.henderson.lib.nc.us/) I am unable to connect with my county library. I'm not having trouble with other sites. The error message says

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.hendersoncountync.gov. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

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

I turned off HTTPS-Only Mode but the problem persisted. I also tried entering this site as an exception for HTTPS-Only but that didn't help. Even after restarting the computer, Firefox continues to reset the URL to HTTPS from HTTP. My wife was able to access this website on her desktop WinX with Firefox and no problem. On my WinX desktop with Firefox I connected to https://www.hendersoncountync.gov/library instantly.

Is the HTTPS-Only Mode sticky? What am I missing?

I use/like the randomly-generated 'strong' password feature, but is there a setting/option to have it include one or more special character(s)? So many sites nowadays require one, and VERY few *prohibit* them. I know I can 'substitute' one in there, but I'm VERY lazy! Thanks.

I added a few sites I frequently visit, such as banks, credit card company Google, to the exceptions list in Cookies And Site Data. When my version of Firefox was recently updated to 102.0.1, a few of those sites began asking for additional authentication because they didn't recognize my computer. So I added the recommended add-on, Cookie Quick Manager. and listed those sites as protected. This worked for a few days but Google and my credit card company again don't recognize my computer. I am not using a VPN.

Thank you.

A few days ago, I tried to have one window for private mode and one for public. For Private mode, I used settings for custom history and Always use Private browsing Mode. Somehow, it didn't work. I'm old and forget a lot of what I did. I reinstalled FF a few times, to no avail. So did uninstall and told them why, and that I planned to be back in a few days. Also, I uninstalled the Maintenance program first. I went to EDGE, but really hate it, so I downloaded FF now. Set for Private browsing. But it doesn't work. Keep getting public browsing. Even if I select it on taskbar icon, no luck. Don't see the purple glasses or whatever they were. I really like to use private mode.

I can sure use some advice.

There are multiple screenshots attached below, 2 of them showing setting marked in red. Those settings are pre-configured with the firefox.cfg file. I would like to also pre-configure a list of other settings. You can also find those other settings below.

Anyways, i remember someone from this forum told me there is no "official documentation" for the firefox settings which are listed in about:config. Is there an "inofficial documentation"? If you could reply with the exact setting that i have to change according to the screenshot attached below that would be awesome, otherwise an URL for some sort of documentation would be welcome..

Basically all the setting i want to change exists and can be manually edited using the firefox settings, but theoretically could be easily pre-configured with the firefox.cfg.

All i need are setting-names/ids.

Access Denied Error 21 What happened? This request was blocked by security rules. Your IP: 73.94.12.65 Incident ID: 6eae587fcef92d46

I have no idea what security rules, but I am working on a genealogy project and have never had a problem signing into Ancestry in multiple tabs before today. How do I fix this? Besides getting rid of Firefox, I mean. I have the same security extensions on this browser as I use on Vivaldi, Brave and Chrome - I avoid Chrome, but use Vivaldi and Brave regularly, along with Firefox.

Hello. I just created a master password to protect my website passwords. However, this master password is required to start a session with Firefox. My suggestion is that you do not require the master password to start a Firefox session, only to access the passwords information, or to create and remember a login password for a new website. It is a hassle to enter the master password every time I want to use Firefox. Or should I keep firefox open the entire day?

I've checked a couple of the "similar topics" before posting here. I'm not sure if I am having the same problem or something else.

Back Story: I have a "few" windows and tabs open in FireFox. I would finish what I was doing, shut down and then the next time I booted up and loaded FireFox, all sessions would be restored and all log ins honoured (kept). That is: I was still logged in.

(Moving to now) Yesterday I powered up and ALL sites were logged out. About 20 log ins were needed. Hmmmmm... gmail, and the rest.

"Ok... something happened. No problems, things should be ok from now. I've logged in, so all is sweet."

Today I power up: All logs ins lost. Had to go through it all again.

Gmail is throwing security alerts at me hand over fist. Yeah, that is good in some ways. I get that part. But I've logged in.

Seems - my thoughts - that the cookies aren't being saved. But why? I haven't touched them or their settings.

Yes, I did do a clean out of older cookies. But left the gmail ones, and other sites I know I use. I have `adblocker ultimate` installed.

Now I am logged in, if I open the `cookies` and look I should see them there for the sites to which I am logged in - yes?


To be clear: When I am done, I do NOT `exit` FireFox. All windows, tabs, sessions are left. I just shut down the machine. Then next time I load FireFox and they are re-loaded and log ins are maintained.

For some websites, get the following error message: "Error: Secured connection failed. While connecting www.obelink.de, the following error occured: PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR This web site cannot be displayed, because the authencity of the received data could not be verified" (Sorry - I use Firefox German version, so this is my translation of the German error message) I get this error mostly after Firefox update, presently: 102.0.1 (64-Bit) I tried to empty the cache, closed Firefox (Shft + Ctrl + Q), restarted - nope. Interesting detail: When connecting to www.obelink.de on my Samsung Tab A7 (Firefox for Android 102.2.0), the web site opens instantly. And the Android firefox is much faster that this here (Win 10). Can anybody help to fix the issue?

A website MultiSafepay.com has saved my CVV number in Firefox.

How do I edit the autofill data?

I can't get to the same payment page, to be in a position to delete it.

Most links on this matter refer to:

 Options => Privacy & Security => Forms and Autofill

However in my Version: Firefox 98.0.1 (64 bit) running on an up to date Windows 10 this feature is missing or deprecated.

Can anyone say how I could edit/delete this specific entry, or point me in the direction of where this data is stored?

In the mean time I can't recommend using Firefox for entering critical security data, where websites can allow the storage of CVV numbers.

Is there a way to use the address bar only for opening addresses, and use the search bar for searching?
