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.

Hi there!

I have been having trouble with Firefox continuing to autoplay videos even with preferences set to "Block Audio and Video."

If I go to twitter.com or elsewhere Firefox will show that auto play is disabled, but videos will autoplay with no audio. I would just like to get this feature working as autoplaying videos are incredibly annoying!

Thanks for any help!

Hi,

I downloaded JDownloader yesterday. It forcefully installed some adware which became the default search engine, can't recall its name and Avast Antivirus. There was no option to uncheck them while installing. Since I didn't like JD at all so I uninstalled them all using Revo Uninstaller. Now while I searched something in the url bar few times that adware's page searched my keywords. I opened my settings and I got this message Your browser is being managed by your organization. PFA. This is my personal laptop connected to my personal wifi. Can I delete everything related to this junk without reinstalling FF? http://www.upl.co/uploads/14291556FF1580471775.jpg http://www.upl.co/uploads/161919FF-11580471781.jpg

I have no idea what state is on file as being my state of residence (I move a lot for a civilian), but I've lived at this address for the last three or four years and never had any issue with logging in to my firefox account before. I have plenty of trouble with my location WITHIN the state (Oklahoma), because apparently the only cities that exist in the state are OKC and Tulsa /eyeroll, but I've never had an issue with the state itself being misidentified. I could understand if a VPN was causing the issue, but I'm not using a VPN (I know, I probably should, but imagine the login issue THEN! lol). Thanks in advance for any help.

By using the last version of Firefox (74.0) when visiting a website with security connection I got the following error : "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to .............. PR_CONNECT_RESET_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." With the previous versions of Firefox there was no such problem and I could visit the above website. So, please inform me what happened with ver. 74.0 ? By ver. 74.0 is no more supported some older security protocols which might have the above website, or this is a bug by the new ver. 74.0 ? Please inform me how this issue can be fixed ?

More and more sites are starting to "hide" behind cloudfare and such like which means it wants to re-load the web page automatically. Firefox is preventing this and I have to click allow every time, in some cases I can't access the sight due to this. I want to either turn OFF this annoyance permanently or to be able to "white list" certain sites to allow it

I tried to install lockwise on my mobile, but unfortunately I forgot my password to my account, which contain all the information. Luckily I have access to the associated email also the account is logged in on my laptop. But when resetting the password, I got a warning that I might lose some of my saved password and bookmarks, which I really don't want. Is there still anyway for me save my account without loosing any of my contents ?

Hi guys. I tested this recently on notebook with Windows 10. I installed Firefox, sign in to my account, synced everything. Let's say, I need to delete all the data and this account from this particular device. I couldn't find such an option. When I deleted my account from Firefox, all the data left on the notebook! Even when I uninstall the browser, and then install it again - browser restored all the data!!!

Is it possible to delete my sync account and all the data related to it: history, bookmarks, sessions, extensions, add-ons, everything?

Let's say, I'm signed in on a friend's laptop and need to delete everything later.

I was messing around with Privacy & Security settings. Under Cookies & Site Data, I checked Delete Cookies & Site Data when Firefox closes. I've decided I don't like it and want to uncheck it. But now it's greyed out and I can't find any way to change it back. It says I'm in permanent private browsing mode. There MUST be a way to change this back to how it was! What is it???

PKCS#11 Security device stops allowing login of CAC credentials

Hello, I use Firefox 75.0 on an Ubuntu 18.04 system to access CAC enabled (smartcards) US government websites. Generally all works as desired. However, intermittently (couple times a day ---> once every few days) the browser simply, quietly refuses to allow the CAC to login, when I visit a CAC-secured site. A browser dialog is presented and asks for my PIN, but closes without error, yet the PIN is not accepted and the site (correctly) refuses access. In my troubleshooting, I found that if I look at the Security Devices tab under Privacy&Security, the PKCS#11 module shows the CAC as not logged in. If I attempt to log in at that page, I get the usual PIN dialog, but after submission, a new message box appears with the notice that "Log in failed", and I can see that module still says Log out.

It appears that some file lock or related mechanism is in effect and needs to be reset. The only solution I have been able to use is close Firefox completely (all windows), and restart. This works but not desired as I have several different sites I'm active on, and each requires separate logins.

Any suggestions for further troubleshooting would be appreciated. My forays into Google searches all end up as help to get CAC card working, which is not my problem. The card works until Firefox (or something related in the middleware) freezes and the only recourse is to restart.

Cheers, --Jim

If I search by highlighting text and then right click + 'search google for...' the following link address in the next page always includes the text "client=ubuntu".

As i'm using ubuntu that might not seem strange, but it's strange to me because I use this addon which is supposed to spoof my browser and O/S and also in about config I have: privacy.resistFingerprinting and "privacy.trackingprotection.fingerprinting.enabled"' both set to "true".

Can anyone tell me how google is able to detect this info?

And seeing as the about:config settings dont seem to work... how i'm able to stop it?

Say that I have a login at a site, and I got there previously with another browser. When I go to the same site with Firefox for the first time, that site's ID field might drop down to show a number of entries, and many times (but not always) there is no "View Saved Logins" below the list.

Here is an example of a site than many readers of this might not go to: DevonTechnologies.com and this might be the same for you. Devon's login ID wants an email address, and the field dropped down to show 29. A bunch of them were emails I would swear on my kid's heads I have never used anywhere, not even in another browser, and one was a misspelling of my own email address. Only a small few were addresses that were valid elsewhere. But here is the rub: A search of about:logins for the weird addresses and my misspelling came up empty.

Further, I can go to another site I have never visited with Firefox, and I might not get a drop-down at all or I might get just one of my three typical email addresses.

For those sites where I have used Firefox for the first time, the questions are

  • Where did Firefox get those spurious addresses?
  • Where did Firefox get a good address, and why did it leave out the "usual" others?
  • Why are the odd logins not found at about:logins?

I have Firefox 76.0.1 under Catalina 10.15.4, and I sync with Lockwise.

Thanks.

I have been having a problem that started a few weeks back. On some websites I could not load some images. Spent a good deal of time trying to fix the issue but to no avail. Tried most everything suggested. Finally disabled uBlock and all works fine now. I thought starting in the safe mode would disable uBlock but apparently it did not. When I disabled it manually it worked. Now I need to find a replacement ad blocker.
