Can anyone tell me why facebook stopped loading? It's been sever days now and I have not made changes to my pc, it just sto0ped loading. I have just tried to disable the facebook fence in options thinking that would help. It did not and when I tried to reset it that option is not even listed anymore in options. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You. Jeff

Hi!

I'm representing LiveJournal and I'd like to clarify the recent security concerns.

We consider security our main priority and are constantly paying particular attention to it when developing new features and updating old ones. Within the past 8 years we have:

- switched to HTTPS for all pages; - improved password storage mechanics; - implemented suspicious activity detecting system which tracks and block suspicious logins; - maintained monitoring for vulnerabilities both within LiveJournal's code and third-party software employed by us; - recommended all of our users to update their passwords at least once per 6 months and to use different passwords for different services; - we have also disabled passwords that haven't been updated for several years.

You may find the details in official LJ new channel - https://news.livejournal.com/155859.html

We are keeping track of the information distributed in the Internet and want our users to feel safe. That’s why we kindly ask you to stop showing security alert to Firefox browser users about their LiveJournal accounts security.

Thank you.

Hi, I am visiting a site from my favorites and suddenly I am greeted with a red page urging me that this site has dangerous content and I should leave it? Why is that? There is an option to ignore the risk but I want this red screen disabled and not to see it again. How can I disable it and possibly even delete it from my computer?

In the settings I have unchecked this: Deceptive Content and Dangerous Software Protection Block dangerous and deceptive content

but still get the error. How can I disable this stupid page!

Hi,

I am trying to configure PKI based authentication and encryption system in my organization using Hardware token. I was able to install my hardware token feitan ePass2003 Auto in privacy->security device. I am able to see my certificates under view certificate after entering my password for private key. After research on internet, came to know that Applet based client authentication is obsolete and hence i have configure my token in Firefox. The next step i.e Authentication page is where i have got stuck up. Can any one please give details guide on how to use cryptoken operation(challenge & signing) and access to token in JavaScript at client side login page. I could not get hold of any library of java script for access to token through Firefox. Any guidance is highly appreciated.

Thanks

after recent updates, Firefox will not keep me signed into Yahoo mail for more than a few hours, regardless of whether the "keep me signed in for 2 weeks" box is checked. this problem started last week on my 4 Windows 10 computers at the same time, and the problem does not happen using Edge to access Yahoo mail.

for what it's worth, the url for the Edge Yahoo mail login page is https://mail.yahoo.com/d/folders/1?.src=fp

and the url for the Firefox login page begins exactly the same way but then continues with maybe another 150 characters.

I am trying to access a website I use for work and needed to add a certificate in the keychain (I'm on a Mac). It works fine on Chrome but since I switched to Firefox (for another website that is buggy on Chrome) I can't access it. My company doesn't support Mac so no help there. Here's my error message:

An error occurred during a connection to remotegw2-dhhs.ne.gov. SSL peer was unable to negotiate an acceptable set of security parameters.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE_ALERT

I tried to import the certificate from my keychain but it's not visible there as an acceptable file. I have no idea what to do. Not just a liddlelost, but reallylost. Thanks!

Once I've logged in to my Firefox account, and entered my Firefox master password, it automatically inputs my username and password on a website with information that is sensitive and that I do NOT want to share. I understand that inputting my Firefox/Mozilla master password allows me personalized access to Firefox, but it should NOT automatically enter my username and password. This only happens with this one specific website, no other website automatically inputs my username and password when I click on it. I have cleared cache, and it is not listed in my list of automatic access passwords in my Firefox settings. I do use Lastpass and have removed the Lastpass extension.

How to ensure Privacy Settings are honored...or is there a cached web content loophole?

I've noticed that searches retain information about my previous searches after I close the browser; 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' setting is selected. My tests seem to point to a security loophole with Cached Web Content.

Question: how can I ensure privacy settings are honored, or, if there is a loophole, how can I get Firefox to also clear Cached Web Content on close?

In my repeated test cases, I used bing to search for '5/8 irrigation kit', then closed the browser and reopened. Cookies and site data show 0 bytes (see attached images), Cached Web Content show something greater than 0.

Next, I go to bing.com/news, scroll through stories, and see an advert for an irrigation kit as one of the sponsored adverts.

As a further test after the original search, I try the following to see if I was being track another way, with the same resulting sponsored advert showing:

  • Restarted laptop
  • Restarted ONT (to get a new IP) and wifi

The following 2 scenarios seemed to resolve the issue after the original search and seeing the same resulting sponsored advert:

  • Turned on VPN
  • Cleared Cached Web Content

Clearing Cached Web Content seems to be the solution, and a possible privacy loophole. Cached Web Content is not part of the auto-delete-at-close feature.

Oddly, I haven't been able to consistently replicate the above starting with the VPN on and having it on through the tests. It sometimes shows the same resulting sponsored advert, and sometimes not.

I tried to replicate this with Safari. It's auto-delete feature at close and similar privacy setting seems to work according to what I would expect with the same test scenario; which is, no previous search-informed sponsored advert.

Details:

  • Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit)
  • Firefox privacy settings shown in attached images
  • MacBook Air 2019
  • macOS Catalina Version 10.15.4
  • Verizon Fios

Internet Options under Security allows you to Restrict Websites from ever connecting to your computer. I found, find this very helpful. But it doesn't seem to work in Firefox and you have no similar option!

Can you install this option for Firefox or set it up so the Internet Security options work for Firefox, or so that I can import the list of websites I never want connecting to my computer again?

Thanks, Walter.

I can not stop firefox replacing HTTP:// with HTTPS:// in urls. It seems normally you give it a url like http://anything.com and firefox tries https://anything.com:443 which fails to connect so it goes back to http and everything works.

My sites have a port number 8000. So i give it http://anything.com:8000. Firefox tries HTTPS://anything.com:8000 and gets an unencrypted response and throws this error.

   Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG

I have tried setting browser.urlbar.autoFill to false as in [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../935614] but this does not work.

How do I prevent the replacement?

After Firefox updated, I can no longer access www.apple.com. This is the error I get now:

Blocked by X-Frame-Options Policy

An error occurred during a connection to idmsa.apple.com.

Firefox prevented this page from loading in this context because the page has an X-Frame-Options policy that disallows it.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this issue as soon as possible. Thank You.
