Hi,

Our company recently moved away from Chrome so i picked FF as an alternative. However there is a weird bug when I'm connecting to and off VPN (we are using pulse secure client).

Our current setup: The proxy is hosted pac file on company server which is defined in the W10 system settings. When I connect to pulse secure, the pac file can be accessed and I can use internal/external network.

When I connect to the VPN FF decents the change and works fine. However when I disconnect and try to continue browsing, it takes up to 3 minutes for FF to load the pages again.

I'd like to ask if there is an option to modify the time for FF to check for the pac file? the MS Edge does not take more then 5 seconds to detect the change.

Thanks Regards Jan

I'm wondering if it is possible that Firefox will cease providing a button to proceed to MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT site? My question arises from the following experience.

I connected to a website and the Firefox browser didn't recognize the certificate that the website provided. The following message then popped up: " Potential Security Risk Ahead. " and the user was provided a button to "Accept the Risk and Continue", adding this unsafe website into the exception site list. I think that this is quite insecure. Is it possible that in the future Firefox won't support the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue" to unsafe websites and cease supporting the exception site list to the user?

Recently bookmarked list : where can I find the bookmarks before my last 10 - my 11th, 12th etc.

I have found a significant bug in Firefox bookmarks system that's occurred in one of the last updates. I am running Firefox 91.0 on a Windows 10 laptop PC and it updates automatically. In my work I have bookmarked about 43 sites in about the last month. Only 10 appear in "Recently Bookmarked". Until the last month or so, I would go to Manage Bookmarks and all my recent bookmarks (not just 10) would be displayed and I would be able to move them to different folders I have created in my bookmarks menu. When I do this now, Manage Bookmakrs shows is a much older set of unsorted bookmarks from October 2020 to May 2021, and none of the recent 43. If I go to Recently Bookmarked it shows only the 10. The other 33 seemed to have vanished. I then searched my own bookmarks menu (with about 150 folders in it) and found all the recent bookmarks were located in one particular folder. I haven't set Firefox to do this. Indeed I cannot find any bookmarks options tab to select where bookmarks are saved by default. Why has this happened? How do I get my recent bookmarks saved in Other Bookmarks like they used to be instead of what seems like a random place in my bookmarks menu? This is quite a recent problem - say the last 1-2 months, since a fairly major update I'd guess? I also noticed that if I go to the Open Applications Menu tab on the right of the screen, and click on Bookmarks, this dialogue box lists all 43 of my recent bookmarks, not just the last 10. Why does this list all recent and the Recently Bookmarked tab only lists 10?

Hi all,

This might be duplicate, but I haven't found anything relative to what has happened to me. So I would like to apologize in advance, if this is the case. So, I am running on version 91.0 (x64). I accidentally, logged out from my account (I installed an add-block and tried to remove it, but not from the settings). When I realized what happened, I tried to log in and I used the password recovery. Once I was logged in, I tried to sync (the new empty data) with my account's data. But it is not working at all. Is there any other way to sync all my data and settings to the firefox (maybe download them and import them again)? I would like to point out that this browser on this PC, was the only one connected to my profile. Thank you in advance.

Kind Regards, Spyros

As I work towards rolling out FF91esr to 250 PCs, and having the UI almost usable, I need to be able to integrate a number of preferences to each browser.

Does the group policy cover EVERY preference available?

I read on gHacks that Mozilla ripped out yet another feature - the ability to use the user.js preferences file. I must admit, I haven't confirmed this yet as I've only just finished reading it. I believe the user.js could not lock settings anyway?

I do have about 80-100 settings that I want to integrate. I can't simply replace their prefs.js because they will have undoubtedly set some preferences for themselves, which we do not forbid (yet).

So, without wiping out any preferences users may have set for themselves, how can I integrate the settings I need, assuming the GPO doesn't cover every conceivable preference?

disclaimer: Yes, I realize it is possible that some of the settings I'm going to integrate *might* conflict with preferences they've set for themselves. That will be dealt with internally by policy communications.

I am currently situated at UTC+5:30 Chennai Time Offset location. When I try to do new Date() on firefox, I get the correct date, that is for today for that timezone. Attached a screenshot of correct system timeZone and new Date() output. My question is, if I change the system timeZone to say UTC+14:00 and do new Date(), shouldn't it give result for that timezone as Chrome does? If there is a way to achieve that please let me know.

To: Whoever that may be able to help:

I am a Thai national who is communicating with my email contacts using either English or Thai. The webmail I am using does not support the display of the Thai language correctly. The emails that I have received in Thai have been displayed in characters unrecognizable to me. Before Firefox had the encoding function under View menu. There is a drop-down list where I could select Unicode to convert the unrecognizable text in the emails to the properly-displayed Thai characters. However, after the update to 91.0.2, the encoding function is changed to "Repair character encoding." After I click on that, the unrecognizable texts are transformed to another set of unrecognizable characters!

Is anybody able to help?

I am ... @riltor.com, ... @sudddnlink.net, and ... @gmail.com. I have always been all three of those since the beginning of those services. I had the following PLANS but could not carry them out. I'll explain.

Following the above subject instructions I want to change ... @suddenlink.net from being my mail Firefox sign-on (they've become unreliable of late) if it stays that way I'll quit that ISP. I saw I had set ... @realtor.com as a secondary, so I deleted it IN ORDER TO ADD ... @gmail.com. My plan was then to name ... @gmail.com as the primary and re-add ... @riltor.com as the secondary.

So much for planning, I found out in trying to use ... @gmail.com that it's IN USE, huh? I probably did that at some point, but I don't recall, and Firefox should show it as assigned but actually unused.

Is there a way someone can delete the ... @gmail.com account so it's not there, so that I can make it the primary of this account as stated in my plans above? I want to keep all the stored data in the suddenlink.net account which is why I wanted to change its email to begin with.

I can prove provenance of all three email addresses as being tied to me.

I currently run several environments for Dynamics 365 products. Our clients can choose to use our authentication (ADFS 4.0) or we set up a SSO option for them (normally also ADFS of some flavor). The piece that is similar between both is that the domain they authenticate to would not be the same as the application they are necessarily using. For example my clients have a mixture of on premise and cloud deployments but if they are SSO only pull their tokens from one domain.

Anyways the real TLDR as I can determine is as follows:

Has anyone seen a problem with firefox 92 stripping out headers? My scenario is I have an AD FS server that I use for single sign on with a domain name that is different from the application that it federated with. When I attempt to login using Firefox, the traffic flows as: 1. Hit the app url and get 302 redirected to the IDP 2. enter credentials at the IDP and get redirected to the app url 3. the app has an internal and external claims URL, so the internal claims url 302 redirects me to the external url 4. FF brings up the external url, but does NOT pass the MSISAuth and MSISAuth1 cookies from the IDP 5. The app thinks I've not authenticated, so it 302 redirects me back to the IDP 6. The IDP sees the MSISAuth and MSISAuth1 cookies, so it knows it authenticated me and it 302 redirects me back to the app wash, rinse, repeat for 5 times until AD FS realizes that I've done this 5 times, then it throws an error at me to stop the loop. This was working fine in FF 91 and it currently works in Chrome and Edge. The expected flow is almost the same, except that the app get's the cookies presented to it from AD FS. I was thinking this was something to do with Enhanced Tracking Protection. When I selected Custom and unchecked all the options (I think this disables ETP) I still get the cookies stripped from the header. I re-enabled ETP with standard protections and manually added the URLs using the steps outlined at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1432644#c27. Is this a bug where FF doesn't honor the settings to disable ETP in V92? The reason I was thinking that ETP was to blame is the IDP has a domain of IDP.example and the app has the URL's of internalclaim.app and externalclaim.app.

I feel like I am missing something obviously here but I can't find it. If I create a CRM deployment using the same domain as our ADFS servers it works fine. If I use what our public designation is, it fails. SSO obviously fails. It only started after upgrading to 92 and that is consistent amount all of our clients. I have tried to go through every advance config that was touched with the 92 upgrade and nothing there seems to help. We compared our UAS to a friend of ours who is not having issues since the 92 release and they look the same. If this was a system 92 problem I would expect the internet to be exploding by now but it is not. It makes me think there is something I am missing in our fundamental set up but for the life of me I can't identify a missing update, compatibility issue, known issue blah blah blah. Edge, Chrome, Safari they all still work fine. It is just the Firefox 92 update that all of a sudden killed our authentication.
