On a recent show of Security Now Steve Gibson was talking about Google using ping tracking to spy & track on everything we do and how bad this will be for privacy. I was pleased that it was only google doing this with chrome until this morning he said Firefox are adding it in an upcoming update and when its in you cannot disable it, all in the name of a faster internet. Can anyone tell me why a privacy based browser is using this technology and how will the content/tracking blocking features in Firefox respond to these changes?

I have a number of people hacking me some in the US for unknown reasons and some outside the US because I have family that lives in China. I have someone trying to corrupt my Firefox by installing scripts and toolbars most of which I can remove easily.

This is the second time they have corrupted the address bar for my Firefox. The first time I was able to fix it by re-installing firefox from scratch and re-installing all my plugins. I don't want to do this every time one of the morons hacking me decides on a whim to mess up my firefox to try to get me to use a less secure browser like that disgrace that is internet explorer or some other browser.

Are you guys working on a bug fix for this? I searched around and it seems to be a re-occurring problem with Firefox

At least half the time when I click on a bookmark or on a link in facebook or any web page , i get redirected to a totally different web page then what I was seeking. I have searched for help with this but can't find an answer. I scanned for malware, started in firefox safemode but it still happens. Also my internet speed through any browser is half as fast as it tested on the technicians computer who came to the house to check my internet speed. Why is that?

I am experiencing a proxy authentication loop on OSX, I have tried from 10.7 to 10.10. It occurs only on the new versions of Firefox. If I use the older versions of Firefox such as versions 36 or version 33 the constant authentication loop does not occur. The problem still occurs if the proxy username and password is saved in system preferences.

в последнее время при попытке входа на сайты, с защищенным соединением, начала вылазить ошибка:Ошибка при установлении защищённого соединения

При соединении с имя_сайта произошла ошибка. Алгоритм подписи в поле подписи сертификата не соответствует алгоритму в его поле signatureAlgorithm. (Код ошибки: mozilla_pkix_error_signature_algorithm_mismatch). например, на таком известном как ru.wikipedia.org. В то-же время, Хром прекрасно ходит по всем тем сайтам, куда невозможно зайти через мозилу. Долгое время пользовался этим браузером и, несмотря на то что он иногда зависает и постоянно отваливается плагин Adobe Flash, уходить с него не хотелось-бы.

My browser was compromised about 6 months ago. I sold that computer about 4 months ago. I never changed my FireFox Sync account password. Someone made purchases on my target account, paypal account, and ebay account. This morning, my microsoft account. They are all completely separate user accounts with different emails attached to them. They also tried compromising my G2A account, but I had no billing information saved with them. Again, these are all different user names and passwords. All of my devices and computers are shut off when the hacker tries compromising my accounts again, around 3AM eastern time. I've changed my password already, is there a way to sign out of all current devices and remove my passwords from those devices? I assume not, what else can I do in this situation other than delete account and change passwords?

I currently have my settings to erase history when firefox closes. I don't want anyone changing that setting when I'm not aware and thereby being able to see my history. I know nothing about coding and wouldn't even attempt it. Is there an add on or some kind of suggestion anyone would have? I'm especially concerned as my kids are getting older and I suspect they will have try this one day. lol

I recently bought an HP laptop. It had Chromw loaded, I prefer Firefox. More and more now when I try to open a FF window I get :

"Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot". This is also available:

"This page appears when Google automatically detects requests coming from your computer network which appear to be in violation of the Terms of Service. The block will expire shortly after those requests stop. In the meantime, solving the above CAPTCHA will let you continue to use our services.

This traffic may have been sent by malicious software, a browser plug-in, or a script that sends automated requests. If you share your network connection, ask your administrator for help — a different computer using the same IP address may be responsible. "

Sometimes you may be asked to solve the CAPTCHA if you are using advanced terms that robots are known to use, or sending requests very quickly. I am then forced to go through the Captcha rigmarole and it seems less and less keen to ever let me past.

Within our household we have two other laptops running FF and have no such problems with them

Thoughts and advice would be welcome?

Thanks

How do I stop Firefox from autocompleting usernames on just one site?

Firefox keeps autocompleting and has a drop down for my username for a website. I do not have the password/username saved.

I found this article: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Deleting_autocomplete_entries I followed the directions. It worked, no more drop down. However, after I signed into the site and back out, the drop down came back.

I don't mind Firefox autocompleting for most websites, but for sensitive websites, like online banking, how can I get it to NEVER autocomplete or create a drop down? Again, I don't have the username/password saved, and I don't necessarily want to disable to feature for every website.

Thank you!

I do work remotely through an IP address. The certificate has expired but the company does not want it published, so they are not renewing it. I can no longer access this IP address through Firefox because it tells me "Secure connection failed." I can actually get on this IP address if I use IE, but they too tell me it is not safe, but still allow me to get on. How can i get this overwritten so that I can use Firefox (my preferred browser) to do my work?

Thank you
