With all the releases of FF you would think there would be defense against floating videos. Try to research the topic on the Web and the answers are all over the map and nothing I have seen really works well. These are detaching/floating videos I refer to. Hint: the fix is NOT in about:config.

Probably the most annoying aspect of the Web -- not adequately addressed.

Failure of fiduciary duties...

When using the "Checkout with PayPal" button on websites the PayPal popup window appears however it's impossible to progress to the checkout. When I then use Edge and do my purchase through there, the PayPal popup window allows me to enter my info and then proceed to PayPal with no problem at all.

I have added paypal.com into exclusions for 'Block pop-up windows' and Enhanced Tracking Protection

But, I want to be able to use Firefox! I do not want to be forced into having to use Edge for purchase payments using PayPal. I am not a techie and would like a simple solution w/o having to get into modifying any programming files. S.O.S.

Something happened to Firefox over the weekend-- update or otherwise. Lost all my tabs. Had to uninstall and reinstall. Re-do all my settings. Re-set all my pinned tabs for work. Now I can't get into Asana, a project management tool I use for work daily and have used for years, because of the below security message. I've tried everything I can think of but can't get Firefox to open Asana.

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to app.asana.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

app.asana.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

The secured connection to belgian authorities with the CSAM SW does not work anymore under Firefox (88.0.1 (64 bits)). When activating the CSAM button, the selection page briefly appears and desappears. The new page enters in a endless loop. This is working fine with other navigators and was working fine until the last weeks with firefox

My Private Internet Access VPN does not have access to your browser following recent update. Here's my VPN instructions to reconnect: Firefox has recently changed the way addons handle proxy connection. Allowing the addon to run in Private Windows is now required for proxy settings to be updated.

Please visit the URL below to view you addons page. Then click on the "Private Internet Access" addon to modify its settings. From here, change the "Run in Private Windows" setting to "Allow".

I go to addons page but there is no Private Internet Access addon to open.......................... How do I get to clicking on "Allow"? Thanks.

I had to uninstall and reinstall Firefox due to some issues, after reinstalling, sites I used to access such as Facebook or Gmail for instance, always stop to ask for username/password. The password manager has it already ready, but you have to click on it now, instead of going directly to the site. How can I change it back? Nothing seems to exist under options/password and security. Thanks

I added a few exceptions for internal servers with self-signed certificates via Settings->Security->Show Certificates->Server->Add Exception (permanent exceptions). But these exceptions do not prevent the certificate warning on first connect, after restarting firefox I always need to allow a exception for all of these servers (I have mutiple tabs with monitoring / management sites for some servers open). How to get rid of the warning ? (I can't use let's encrypt certificates on the server, because the server have no internet connection.). Additional: In the german version of the certificate management dialog are certificate name ("Zertifikatsname") and server name ("Servername") column headings (or data) exchanged, the "certificate name" column shows the server name and vice versa.

Authorization for studies is unchecked on my account. When I notice that I participated in 2 remote-studies without me knowing anything about it, nor when it was done, nor why :

T =TopSites Launch Phase 3 - US v2•Terminée TopSites + Redirect Launch T=TopSites Launch Phase 3 - GB•Terminée TopSites Redirect Launch

 Why is Firefox doing  remote-studies from 2 continents on my account without my consent? nor telling me anything about it? 

It is true that I've been redirected using Firefox for quite a while with no idea why (not a good grade as far as privacy is concerned...).

I would like to suggest that the most options in the "Firefox Data Collection and Use" section in the settings are default turned off (except crash reports). This way the privacy and the speed of the browser increases by avoiding the collecting and sending the informations about the user (it may contain any sensitive informations, like: hardware and system informations, the runned applications and websites, etc.) to no one realy knows to who, with may be get "drop eared" and missused, with can create an security threat.

Additionally, holding the collected thru Firefox informations thru 30 days is in my opinion way too long

Firefox keeps asking for a master password: Translated with Bing Translator: The proposed measures https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/firefox-fragt-immer-wieder-nach-master-passwort have been implemented, but to no avail. The request to enter the main password is often done 3 times in a row after the start of Firefox! This is extremely annoying! It would be good if you could turn off the prompt and activate it only if necessary (login to a website).

In German: Übersetzt mit Bing- Translator: Die vorgeschlagenen Maßnahmen https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/firefox-fragt-immer-wieder-nach-master-passwort wurden durchgeführt, jedoch ohne Erfolg. Die Aufforderung, das Hauptpasswort einzugeben, erfolgt nach dem Start von Firefox oft 3 mal hintereinander! Das ist äußerst lästig! Es wäre gut, wenn man die Aufforderung abschalten könnte und nur bei Bedarf (Login bei einer Website) aktivieren könnte.
