Hi. Finally got round to asking this question.

How can I be certain the Pop-up for my Primary Password is from Firefox and NOT a 'fake', pop-up (or some such) displayed by a malicious web-site?

TIA Mike

I recently was looking through my autofill addresses when I noticed a name that should not be there. Someone I do not know in some state that I do not live in. I quickly changed my firefox password and various passwords that may have been compromised.

My question is, how worried should I be? How did they get my password or access to a PC with my account active on it. Then why would they be so daft to save their name and address as the autofill?

Is there any way I can check when it was made or pass this on to Mozilla support?

restrict extension access permissions by url

if an extension requires an 'Access your data for all websites' permission then firefox requires me to choose either allow this extension to steal all my sensitive data, or not to use the extension at all.

for such cases, chrome allows me to choose when and where i prefer to allow the extension to see these data and when and where to restrict it from accessing them: Site access Allow this extension to read and change all your data on websites you visit:

  • On click
  • On specific sites
  • On all sites

does firefox allow this somehow? i'd prefer to have an option to restrict such access in some cases by clicking the extension button, in some - by white or black listing specific sites (mostly whitelisting), and for some cases - do not restrict.

Moin, I activated the HTTPS-only mode as I used the "https everywhere" plugin so far.

But, in a very special network segment for radio amateurs, the 44-network (ampr.org) encryption is not allowed. So is there a way to configure the HTTPS-only mode in a way to say ".... but not for 44.0.0.0/8?

i prefer one configuration than constantly clicking the "continue to http site" button for the next few years.

Thanks in advanced

This just started occurring on my PC when I use Firefox: why is the background of the address bar orange/yellow with diagonal stripes and there is a robot at the start of the web address? I'm concerned it may be a virus or the web browser is being remotely monitored.

Please refer to the attached image. Thank you,

Why do I get this message when I try to go to NBT Banks website: The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to nbtbank.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I only get this on my laptop, my desktop works fine. The settings on both browsers are set the same.

I wanted to change the password of my Firefox account and also generate a recovery key, but whenever I try it says "invalid password". The old password is correct, though, as I can use it to log into my account. I've tried multiple times on two computers and checked and re-checked the password, but the error message keeps appearing.

Every time I open Firefox it asks me for my master password. I have read a lot of forums but nothing has worked. I do not use sync or Windows 10 sync, I doubled checked to make sure they are both off. I have refreshed Firefox to default settings and used with no add ons. The only security software I use is Comodo and I have looked all over for any settings that will effect firefox's memory. Since Firefox won't keep a master password even in default mode I'm thinking its outside Firefox and the only thing that comes to mind is Comodo. I really don't want to remove Comodo and then have to set everything back up. I have quit Comodo but its the same thing.

thank you for any help, this has been driving me crazy!!

Hello, sorry for my English. I would like sometimes to launch Firefox behind VPN. I can indeed do it by using options manually, it works perfectly. All along my search, I have found that a private mode launcher can be made ("C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -private-window). Is there any similar instruction, but for a Firefox manual VPN option activate ? Thank you for your attention.

I am not able to join my universities online classes through Firefox. I thought it might be just an issue with the unis conference service, but I tried discord as well and it's the same problem. Stuff I have tried: look into the permissions options and resdet the permissions (didn't even ask me for pemission again), check if the "block new requests" is marked (never was), didn't help launching firefox in trobleshoot mode to see if it's one of the addons that is the root of my problem, but it didn't change anything.

The only thing that helped was to reset Firefox, but that only fixes it temorarily (about 3 days). After that it reverted back to not letting me join calls. Now I could keep resetting my broweser every three day, but that's a bit bothersome.
