I recently set up my Android phone to sync with Firefox on my home PC. Am concerned when checking devices following an email from Firefox that said last sync 8 hours ago Novi Mi...I am at least 3 hours from there! So I was concerned that my account was not secure and I just disconnected it from the new firefox sync.

Just after installing Firefox Quantum v66.0.2 (64 bit), I am now seeing tens of items being blocked by Ghostery, NoScript and UBlock, items I have not seen being blocked in the past. Is this new version of Firefox subject to being immediately hijacked as soon as it is updated? Is there now something different in Firefox's security for this new version? I have checked ALL of my Firefox settings and all settings are set just as I want them to be set, with this exception: I seem to have many more certificates than I really need and many of them appear to be from countries other than the US. Would I encounter problems if I just deleted all the current certificates in order to update the required certificates? Thank you, Rusty

With security concerns on the rise, our company has required that all software installed on their systems go through an approval process.

As part of that approval process, they want to know the following:

  • Is the software signed by a trusted third party?
  • Is the software downloaded from a US hosted facility?
  • Does the software perform call backs to the software maker?

Thank you!

Mcafee Site Advisor has stopped working on Firefox. It works on Internet Explorer. I prefer Firefox and want to keep using it! It is marked as enabled in the Add Ons in the top right Menu. I have tried reloading Firefox. I have tried disabling Site Advisor and re-enabling it. I have contacted McAfee who say it is not a software fault of theirs. I have a new Lesovo PC with Windows 8.1. Site advisor ran for a few days then this problem occurred. thankyou

i just updated to the latest version of firefox, now it will not let me use the usajobs.gov website. it keeps saying that it is untrusted, and since it uses https, it can not have an exception so i can not continue to the page. It also says that the site is not presenting trusted identification. i need to check my job applications, and search for jobs. this needs to be fixed asap. it does allow my to go to the home page, but when i try to log in, the message pops up.

I'm able to log in to American Express. I can open the help window. But I cannot search the help window because the connection is untrusted:

search.americanexpress.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Well, it's American Express, and I trust them even if Firefox doesn't. And if I'm wrong to, that's my problem, not yours. There's no "I understand the risks". There's no "add exception". The only option is "get me out of here". Firefox add-ons haven't worked.

How do I make Firefox understand I don't give a hoot about their untrusted certificate, and to let me through?

I do work remotely through an IP address. The certificate has expired but the company does not want it published, so they are not renewing it. I can no longer access this IP address through Firefox because it tells me "Secure connection failed." I can actually get on this IP address if I use IE, but they too tell me it is not safe, but still allow me to get on. How can i get this overwritten so that I can use Firefox (my preferred browser) to do my work?

Thank you

my computer has both ipv4 and ipv6 addresses.

When I go to any website, the website will log my ipv4 address.

assuming the website is ipv6 ready, Is there a way to make firefox use ipv6 on that website so that the ipv6 address is logged instead of my ipv4?

Is there a proxy config or something?

I've been trying to get on twitter for awhile now and i keep getting this error.


twitter.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.enflick.com, enflick.com (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Enflick.com is the creator of the online text app i use, TextNow. I don't why it says anything about enflick when It ry to get on twitter. My time is right and I cannot bypass the error by clicking I understand the risks.
