Looking for a solution/work around to the new FF protocols which REFUSE exceptions, which has cut me off from streaming from LEGITIMATE web sites like https://news.stlpublicradio.org/ and other sites as well.

I have used FireFox since Netscape, but am now using Chrome which works fine.

Security is great, but when the security Trumps the ability to actually USE the web sites, then how is that different than just blocking the "offending" website.

You should ask yourselves why the FF market share is so low.

You guys need to come out of the clouds and smell the digital earth where most of us dwell. I love you all for what you do, but you seem to be blowing it. Please get it together.

Any site I go to such as my utility companies that have a link for me to open and view my bill while logged into my online account are prevented from opening by Firefox. Their help articles define the pop-up window as a window that opens automatically. That is not what I'm talking about. I am selecting the link. I am giving the site permission to open the window. It is not automatic. Google Chrome, Microsoft edge, no other browser has this problem. please help.

While using Firefox I am unable to access two of my online accounts, one for my VPN and one for my Credit Union. So I use Microsoft Edge to access these two websites with no issue. I get this security warning using Firefox: "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.ftwccu.org. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

Remember Download lastDir (real file system directory)

Hi, Downloading files to a system directory (Linux) such as /home/me/doc/here /home/me/doc/there Have Ask me where to save files checked.

But lastDir is not a real directory I can navigate, such as /run/user/1000/doc/3dcccd48

This causes the user needs to navigate sometimes very long system directory tree for each successive file download.

In about:config I set:

 browser.download.lastDir 
 browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite	false	
 browser.open.lastDir

But every time these are obfuscated to something like: /run/user/1000/doc/3dcccd48

This introduces about 10 user interactions with mouse/keyboard for each file I download in succession.

How do I get FF to stop obfuscating real system directories for "lastDir"

Really really appreciate the help :)

Firefox blocks Pinterest after upgrading to FF 91.1164 bit from my old FF 52.9 32 bit ESR

"Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.pinterest.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.pinterest.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem."

I used Malware today to scan my computer. When the scan was finished, Firefox said it had blocked Malware from my passwords, but gave me the option of unblocking the passwords which I did. Later I realized the scan had already run.

How can I reblock the passwords?

If Malware can run without access to passwords, why did Firefox ask if I wanted passwords unblocked?

Any further information you can give me about such issues would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you - Sue Bryant

Any help is greatly appreciated.
