How can I stop Firefox from all website security warnings and blocks? Firefox is almost getting useless due to this blocking

Firefox is far too extreme in blocking access to websites preventing me from browsing for "connection" and "security certificate" so-called "issues/errors". It almost regularly attempts to block me from accessing websites such as, for example, CNN (!!) for security certificate issues, and in many cases absolutely will not allow me to browse to some websites. This gets to the point where I have to switch to a different browser to visit websites I have been using for >>decades<<. How can I **completely** shut off ALL Firefox security monitoring to allow ME to decide what I want to view?

Just FYI, I have NO PROBLEM with websites tracking my visits, I actually prefer that.  As well, I have NEVER seen any problems with security certificates endangering me at any of the websites I view, whether the website's certificate is current or not.  I am quite capable of judging for myself whether a website poses any danger to my PC, and I have an AV utility that does an excellent job of protecting my PC, I do NOT need any help from Firefox. I never visit websites that would even remotely present a danger to my system, I am not into games, dark web idiocy, or any other such dangerous sites and I know what to look for to decide the reliability of any site I visit.  I have NEVER, in over 25 years, been hacked or endangered, so I need no help from Firefox.

Thanks for any help,

Pete B

Firefox 68. A web site I visit daily always shows a popup asking me to accept cookies ("aceptar y continuar navegando"). It's annoying.

In options, I've selected "standard" for the cookie policy. I've emptied the cache, used the "forget this site" in the history for the web pages where the message pops up, and reloaded Firefox. It still prompts me.

Here's one of the pages it happens on: https://www.antena3.com/series/el-secreto-de-puente-viejo/avances/ Click "avances" or "momentos" and a large black box should pop up on the bottom of the screen, with the "aceptar y continuar navegando" in the lower right in a red rectangle.

Essentially, I want to tell the web site that I accept having cookies and have the web site remember my answer for the future.

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.

No matter what I try based on internet searches, and on this forum, I can't get my browser to save any history. After I close the closer at end of day, it erases everything. I even created a new profile.... no good. Uninstalled and re-installed.... no good. Places integrity checker says the database is sane. I checked my system care software and disabled any privacy sweeps months ago. My older (a few years back) firefox used to save everything....

When I am taken to a log in page or an account page on several completely different websites, I can see random peoples personal information like their full names, email addresses and phone numbers. When I go to one website, it automatically logs in to someone else's account and I have no idea who the person is. each time I click on the link, it brings up a new random person's account and info. It's not just happening on one website. I have no idea how this is happening and I worry that my account information is popping up on other peoples screens just like theirs is popping up on mine. I don't even know who to contact to try to resolve the problem. I even tried to call the Federal Trade Commision, but they didn't seem to care or want to 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
