I am writing here from Chrome browser because in accounts.firefox.com I get "Cookies and local storage are required. Please enable... Try again". Cookies are already enabled, Manage Cookies shows a lot of them -some minutes old (I had deleted them in one of the attempts to fix the issue, also recent history and other privacy stuff). Some pages I access regularly remain blank. One of them displays its content for 1/2 second. Other shows me the login page but I cannot login. Other sites I can access to the main page but its links. About required "local storage" there's nothing about that under Settings search. FF 92.0 Ubuntu 20.04 I've been using Ubuntu/Firefox for 14 years. Thank you

When i click on the lock icon in the address bar, nothing happens (I would expect to see the encryption and certificate, but no widget opens). When I right-click into the page and select "View Page Info", "Security", "View Certificate", no certificate exists. Only generic info is shown (Servers+Authorities). Also an error is reported in the system log, confirming that no certificate exists: JavaScript error: chrome://browser/content/browser-siteIdentity.js, line 642: TypeError: issuerCert is undefined

Questions:

  • Why does Firefox show the lock icon while no certificate exists?
  • How does Firefox establish a secure connection without having a certificate? (From my understanding a certificate is needed for TLS to work.)

Version used: Firefox 78.12.0esr ('Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0'), no add-ons or plugins.

I am suffering from the same issue posted on AskDifferent and since there is no answer there, I thought to paste the question here.

I have installed Firefox (version 90.0.2) on macOS version 11.5.1. In the Camera and Microphone panes under the Privacy tab in Security & Privacy settings, Firefox is missing.

I tried this answer and this, then opened Firefox and navigated to a website that prompted for using the cam and mic.

Yet, when I approved it on Firefox, the Mac privacy dialog did not pop.

How can I give permissions to Firefox for microphone and camera to be able to use them in Firefox? (should it be by modifying the privacy database?) Is this a Firefox bug? Right now, it forces me to use other internet browsers :(

mailman doesn't allow certificates to be placed on that part of the server, when the server is PLESK. It is an add on feature, and they are not doing it yet. Therefore I'm getting close to self signed certificate error, but with no button available to accept and move go to page... or what ever wording you really have.

I'm trying to get to my own mailman list, that I had no problem creating yesterday. Now I get the certificate warning, but no button to go beyond and take the risk.

I did download and install the new firefox since then, so don't know if that is an issue.

I already searched your site, and tried the options that were available in your trouble shooting areas... but none of them have worked.

Was this caused by the update I did this morning? Anyway, this is my own mail list admin area, and I need to admin my maillist. I can be reached better at we.the.people@peoplesworldwar.com Tammy

A week ago I started using a primary password for FF. I learned it by heart, also copied it to my iPhone in a safe notation (I have access to the notation using my finger print). It worked just fine for the first days. Today I tried to use the primary password again, in order to enter a website, but somehow FF denies me entrance, again and again. No spelling issues or missing characters, because I copy the primary password from my iPhone notation and paste it into the primary password field on my Mac. In FF Lockwise (on my iPhone) I can also still see my primary FF password, which is exactly the same. Typing it down character by character doesn’t solve the problem, nor does restarting FF. Caps lock is off. No issues with my keyboard. In my privacy and security setting I cannot to stop FF from asking my primary password, because (of course also there) it won’t recognize the primary password I enter...

There is no one who knows about my primary password nor has anyone access to my computer or iPhone. So there is no way I could explain somebody to have been able to change my primary password. Could anybody please explain to me what might be going on? Did other people experience the same issue? What steps should I take to try to solve it?

And I surely wish not to need to reset my primary password, because I will lose all my saved passwords from FF... Happily I still have access to FF Lockwise on my iPhone (using my finger print). So I could still copy each password and save it somewhere else. But that would mean quite a lot of work. Besides of that I don’t trust it to work better next time I set up a primary FF password…

I hope I explained my problem well enough. Thanks in advance for trying to help me out!

I browsed a clothing website for less than 5 minutes by typing in the address and not using any links. Shortly after I receive an email asking if I was still interested in what I was looking at. Does Firefox share my email address with websites I'm visiting? I believe the email is coming from SafeOpt, not the website I visited. I do have "do not track" options selected in Firefox.

All of a sudden I have to log in to all the common websites I use such as Yahoo mail. It could have been something I changed but I don't know what. From what I understand it may have something to do with the setting Cookies and site data. I think that if the box that says "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is checked then the log ins will not be remembered. The problem I have is that particular setting is ticked and it is shaded and I cant uncheck it. Can someone provide a simple solution please?

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm unable to save my username and passwords. I read that it could be that I had upgraded to a new version of Firefox. Apparently, I had previously downloaded Firefox a while ago and just recently reinstalled it. I guess it remembered. I check marked all the password settings and it still won't save at all. It said that I should downgrade to a previous version 68. Then, it asked which browser and that's where I'm stuck.

Can someone please help?

Thank you!

About a week ago, Firefox began occasionally opening a webpage or even my Google login window in some random language. Opening a new tab and closing the errant tab would result in the same page opening correctly in English. The language used when Firefox erred was never the same twice. In the last couple days the rate of errors has accelerated. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Is someone other than me using my Firefox credentials?

I want to disable all of the automatic suggestions and autocomplete functions. I am totally blind, and I have recently had problems with a suggestion appear which was wrong! I entered my four-digit address, and the autosuggestions popped up several addresses - ALL OF WHICH WERE WRONG! I was very annoyed arrowing through the items, listening to them spoken, and finding that NONE of them were correct. I got lost in one of those darned suggestion systems while finalizing an order and eventually closed Firefox and started the process over. I had those darned suggestions turned off at one time, but they must have come back on when the last update occurred. So i want to fix Firefox so that it will simply let me type in the needed information - address, or whatever is needed - with no suggestions popping up - hopefully so they will stay off PERMANENTLY!
