Note': Such problems do exist when all add-ons disabled and in safe mode Firefox (by "refresh firefox" option).

When Firefox is started, an advertising window would occur. The hijacked address: https://winxuan[.]jd[.]com/?cu=true&utm_source=kong&utm_medium=tuiguang&utm_campaign=t_1000623798_&utm_term=19dca519301545a6b711007896b3b333 hijacked address

Also, Ctrl + Shift + N was hijacked to the same window.

The window is strange: When I click the "+" button to open a new tab, the new tab directly opens in the previous window.

Perhaps something in Firefox itself was maliciously modified, I guess.

I am using 88.0.1 (64-bit) version Firefox on Win10.

Hi!

I want to dump/debug http traffic with mitm proxy: https://github.com/ganskef/LittleProxy-mitm . This proxy generates it's own root certificate which i manually imported to Firefox from about:preferences#privacy > View Certificates > Authorities > Import. I verified that cert shows up after importing it. But I get errors despite of that:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.youtube.com. Peer’s certificate has an invalid signature.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE

Is there a way to bypass it?

I have been trying to unlock the security setting preventing me from accessing my work hub link. I know it's secure, it's literally my job's website portal for a Healthcare network. I used to be able to access it no problem but all of a sudden Firefox is preventing me from accessing it without an option to disable protection when I click on more info like I usually can on browsers.

Hi, suddently i can't delete history browsing in firefox. No matter what i try it still not clear the browsing history. What first i do is "Forget About This Site" option to delete single history form a website but it doesn't work. Then i try to delete browsing history from setting, setup to clear history when firefox closed and even i delete history with "Everything" option it still doesn't work.

I don't remember exactly, but if i not wrong i've got this issue since upgrade to 91.0.2 version. For your information, i use Firefox-bin version in Gentoo Linux with i3 Window Manager.

Any help will be apreciated.

Firefox Browser uprated to 92.0 today. Previously whilst browsing Ad's were showing; today I have no Ad's displayed but have not enabled an Ad Blocker on Firefox. A site I use extensively cannot now be properly viewed; I get a message to turn off Ad Blocker. I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to 'Off' but am still unable to obtain full functionality, I am using standard Firefox Privacy settings otherwise. I am able to browse the site properly using MS Edge. I have deliberately refrained from using any AD Blocking on my part so as to ensure the site in question can be properly viewed. The only Firefox extension being used is Kaspersky Protection; I get the turn off Ad Blocker message both when Kaspersky Protection is on or off.

I remember from past rodeos that I need to know the precise name of the cookies. But now when I check which cookies are added when I login, I can only see them grouped by the main website title--nytimes.com and I see that they have added 7 cookies. But I cannot see individual cookies.

How can I see the cookies to copy their addresses for the 'exceptions' table for data management to allow the right ones to be retained; OR just tell FF to allow my 3 preferred sites to stay 'always' logged in when I reopen FF?

Still trying to figure out what is wrong after refresh of Firefox.

I cannot get my handful of preferred websites to remain logged in when closing and reopening Firefox.

I have FF set to clear cookies and data on closing, but this handful of sites are listed as exceptions.

After reopen FF, the relevant cookies are not sticking. This used to work better.

I redownloaded FF and no improvement.

I'm thinking conflicting settings or....?

hello there i have the following problem the company i work for has unistalled remotely firefox from my laptop, and i do not have any way to re-install it back i have managed in some way to obtain a copy of portable firefox on the same laptop since i was not informed about this process, i have not saved my password externally and unfortunately, i was not using a firefox profile

in few words: i do not have my passwords anymore

i have seen that in such folder: C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

there are still saved three subfolders (one of them has the last modified date as 13th Sep, meaning today), therefore i think that my profile (and all relevant passwords) are still there somewhere

i would like to understand if and how i can import the passwords from the unistalled firefox in the portable firefox: i have already tried to copy those directories in: C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile

but no success, passwords are not importyed. please, i need help

thanks.

Hi! I have the strictest anti-tracking protection enabled and have one question: Firefox prevents cross-site cookies by default, but if I install Firefox Containers, does that mean that those cross-site cookies will be allowed inside that container, even if they're not when browsing outside of any container? My concern is that, if that happened, using Firefox containers would actually diminish privacy instead of increasing it (for example, Facebook would be able to use Instagram cookies because they're in the same container, even though it wouldn't if I hadn't installed Containers). Thanks a lot! Love the Firefox community <3

Hi all, Since latest updates to my Ubuntu system, both Firefox and Thunderbird frequently ask that the primary password be reentered. This is tedious, and not necessary on my system, which only I have access to. Can I change the settings either to only require a password once only when the programme is invoked or to extend the time that a password remain valid? (If there is a method - I can't find it!) I'd appreciate some advice. Kind regards 13arry 13arker
