The owner of www.google.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

I noticed that on ALL sites where the reCAPTCHA from Google should be loaded, with the Enhanced Tracking Protection enabled, the captcha is not loaded. I reported to each such site through the Message about a breakdown due to blocking, but it did not help. This should be corrected if possible.

Since the latest update I am getting really frustrated with the security, it is a pain all i want to do is view my phone bill - it is a PDF from my account on Virginmobile, the Mozilla help discussion is a circular message with no solution. I have made the updates automatic I have installed a PDF viewer, I have tried restart and all NO luck and I am now out of time..... I have to just not use Firefox as my browser to get the bill and if this is the same for my other accounts I will have to make another browser the defalt :( !

On my Samsung Tablet, if I select a 'private browsing' window the screen clearly changes (address bar has a purple line etc) so it is very clear if one is in standard browsing or private browsing mode. However, under Cinnamon Mint Linux the screen has no obvious apparent changes when a private window is selected.

I much prefer the visual indication version as it avoids sessions operating in the wrong mode.

I am asking if a similar feature might please be incorporated into the Linux Mint version.

Thank you

I recently got an email certificate online, and I am trying to export it from Firefox into Windows. I went to the certificate store in Firefox, exported it to my desktop in a PKCS12 file, and tried to open it in Windows, but Windows thinks the password I used is wrong. It doesn't matter what password I use, whether it's copied out of KeePass or a simple dictionary. Am I missing something?

FIRST - I HATE that you require registration just to ask a question. That is an onerous requirement. Please stop it!!!

TWO - You have the same problem all the time. You create features that are easy to turn on but very difficult to turn off. The Mozilla introduction to the new non-tracking feature claims that by clicking on the shield, you can bring up a menu to turn off tracking. THIS IS NOT TRUE. I was trying to turn tracking back on so that Netflix would allow me access. When I click on the shield , Firefox becomes OBSESSED with telling me that the Netflix connection is not trustworthy. OKAY, I GET IT. NOW LET ME CONNECT ANYWAY. No, it won't. The Mozilla example states that I can turn off tracking globally or just for this site. It shows a menu giving me those options and circles the DISABLE JUST FOR THIS SITE in red. No such menu exists. All I get is that obsession with Netflix being untrusted. I will have to go back to Chrome or IE just to watch Netflix without your damned obstructions that cannot be turned off, as Netflix requires. I am running Win 7 Pro and the latest Firefox. I don't recognize 1/10th of the plug-ins you think I have installed. I tried to upload a screen shot of 178 KB in size to help you out but it would not upload. Just kept rotating. Problems piled up on top of problems.

Hello,

I've noticed that, despite me clearing all history, using private browsing, or properly exiting Firefox, an outbound connection to certain IP addresses remains active, like I said, even after exiting the browser. I am able to view these via the Network Monitor that's a part of Kaspersky Internet Security. The only way I can get those connections to stop is by rebooting my computer.

The IPs I've noticed that exhibit this behavior belong to Google, Yahoo, and Twitter.

How can I get this to stop?

Thanks for your time. Best regards.

I want DuckDuckGo search engine URL to be "https://start.duckduckgo.com" instead of default "https://duckduckgo.com". How can I accomplish this?

Simply removing DuckDuckGo search engine from settings and then adding start.duckduckgo.com to search engines do not work as it produces "Search engine with this name already exists" error.

Any tips?

After I sign into my financial inst., I get a challenge question. Somehow, Firefox has started entering my password in the challenge question answer box. Mozilla instructions are to click on the box, press down arrow and past entries will show, which can then be deleted. That worked on my username field getting into the institutions site, but it does not work on the challenge question. I click on the box, press down arrow, and nothing happens. Why? I do not want my password (or anything else) to show up in that challenge question box.
