I registered a Yubico security key on Firefox. It crashed, so I sent it back for a refund. I bought another model, but do not want to use it. Websites continue to ask me the security key password and asks me to touch the security. I only used that key one time before it crashed. I can find no place to turn it off for Mozilla apps. Can you reset my account? How do I get websites that have skimpy security to stop asking for a Yubico security and they tell me Firefox requires it. I canceled one facebook account because they have very little security, but the one I used with the Yubico key one time will not let me login. The FB routines to recover a frozen account don't work. Please help Vance

I can't access certain websites when I attempt to leave feedback. I'm told to remove blocking. I clicked on the shield and turned off Enhanced Tracking Protection on those sites. I also added the sites to the Exceptions list in Privacy & Security (Manage Exceptions). My Browser Privacy Settings are: Custom Choose which trackers and scripts to block. ✓Cookies: Cross-site Tracking Cookies ✓Tracking content: Only in Private Windows ✓Cryptominers ✓Fingerprinters

But I still can't access the sites.

Which settings do I need to change so I don't get blocked by the websites?

Hello,

I noticed that a setting on the about:config page was removed: the "security.csp.enable" setting. I was using this setting to disable CSP to be able to load local JS scripts on some non-locally hosted sites, for debugging and development, work related purposes.

Was this setting really removed? Is there a way to disable CSP on Firefox on the latest version?

Thanks! Gabriel.

Hi all :)

From a fresh Linux Debian Bullseye I try to connect to a local machine with Firefox (v97 64-bits) by its hostname (avahi server with default domain "local") with the port 6180 bound to a remote web service port (61 is the distant machine IP and 80 is the forwarded port).

When I want to open this URL : http://bionic.local:6180/ FF displays "We can't find this site ... Unable to connect to server at bionic.local ... check your network connection and firewall"

BUT ping bionic.local works perfectly and resolve the good IP address from the Chromium navigator the same URL works without a problem, I can open the distant web site.

This workaround works : add a static resolution in the /etc/hosts file : 192.168.0.71 bionic bionic.local => so FF works in the expected way for now ! But as I said this a workaround and a bad solution.

I supposed too the port was blocked because I accessed an unusual port. So I tried this without success.

How the hell make that FF v97 allows me to use an unusual port ? Or is it bound to the domain "local" which is no more accepted by FF ?

Thank you in advance for your help. With adelphity, lnj

I cannot access my primary Firefox account, don't have a two-step authentication app configured for the account, can't find recovery codes, and don't have a logged-in device. In addition, I subscribe to premium services linked to the affected Firefox account, so I'm now unable to access them as well. To ask this question, I created a new Firefox account.

What should I do now? It seems I'm stuck paying for services I can no longer access. I can't even cancel the premium services since I can't access the affected Firefox account. How can I contact Mozilla Corp?

Got sick and tired of having to enter payment card info every time, so I decided to RTFM and follow instructions. I worked my way thru all the instructions on found on the forum pages, and was entering the information via about:config, and got to the popup where I was asked to confirm, and clicked the button, then clicked it harder, but nothing happened.

My guess is that my Firefox and/or my Leap15.3 installation has left some file permission read-only and Firefox is unable to save this bit of data, but I really don't want to run Firefox as root. I can say more, but I see there are more boxes to fill.

So, I included a screenshot of what I hope will be the useful part of my config file.

Has an update obviated the need for it, and if so, do we have updated help files to reflect the new control for security, vpn and cookie usage?

Where or to whom can I send a request / recommendation / beg to get the Firefox browser actually to change something? I know what the community will say -- asked and answered. And no disrespect to the community at all -- it's very valuable and has been helpful to me -- but I am interested in putting this request before someone at Mozilla / Firefox who actually has the authority to decide it and do it.

FYI, not to be too mysterious about it, I think the Privacy & Security setting on Notifications would be improved by putting in a permanent option to let a user stop notifications when he or she has taken a screen shot. Allowing it to be paused now requires the user to go back in and change the setting each time he or she opens Firefox. For me, that's dozens of times a day.

On a broader scale, why not give the user the option permanently? We are, I hope, a land and community of people who prefer choice over mandates, even partial ones, when the substance of the choice or mandate does not pose a risk to others.

Thanks.

Hello,

We are using Firefox on macOS to access web services that require Certificate Based Authentication. Our certificates are stored on YubiKeys PIV slots.

If we plug the token, open Firefox and access the website, it works just fine. The Certificate picker is shown and the OS ask for the PIV PIN to validate the access.

However, if we do the request when the token isn't plugged, Firefox does not ask for it, the website deny the authentication and the context is kept in cache. Requesting again the web site with the token added in between does not restart the certificate lookup and we are forced to close Firefox or move to a private window to make it works.

What is the proper way to avoid this issue? Is it a known bug? Is there a way to configure Firefox to always show the certificate picker even if no certificate are found and then reload the list of certificate based on connections events?

Thanks
