I installed the uBlock Origin add on to stop ads while watching youtube. I restarted the computer. uBlock Origin is in Add Ons, and is switched on. However, I am still receiving ads. First ad is before the clip plays. After 5 seconds, I can end the ad. Second ad is really intrusive. It interrupts the clip. Perhaps I misunderstood the capabilities of uBlock Origin, or how to use it. I would appreciate any recommendations Firefox version on my Windows 7 PC is: 79.0 (64-bit) Thanks.

Since the last update, I am receiving the error message SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT when I access one website that I need to use as part of my work.

It is a trusted site that I have used for many years. The error message above displays and I get the option to retry which usually works, but I lose any content up to that point.

I have contacted the website owners as suggested and they say it is a Mozilla issue. I found a couple of suggestions to fix this on-line, but it did not work.

Can you help?

Firefox extentions often ask for the authorization "Access your data for all websites". The description is "The extension can read the content of any webpage you visit as well as the data you enter there, e.g. B. Usernames and Passwords." Does this mean e.g. if I type in my bank account in a firefox browser window or a password for any other pge that this extension has access to this input/password??? Martin

I am on a website page that continually refreshes after 4 or 5 seconds. I am using what I believe is the latest version of Firefox (July 2020 update) in a Windows 10 32 bit environment. I found a few answers that mention how to disable the auto refresh but those options do not seem to appear in the current version. Perhaps the wordings or options have changed but I cannot find the "Warn me when web pages try to refresh" checkbox. Thanks.

I would like to know if there are options to disable auto refresh for (a) a single webpage or (b) all pages on a website.

Have updated to FF 79 yesterday on a private computer (with admin privileges on my user).

Ever since, the browser options changed specifically:

1) In Help > About I cannot trigger an update anymore as the button is replaced by the message "Updates are deactivated by system administrator"

2) In Settings it reads "The browser is administrated by your organization".

Never seen this.

On another computer with the same antivirus software FF updated to 79, no trouble. On yet another machine with Win Defender only also no trouble after update.

Malware & antivirus scans both come up empty. Removed and re-installed FF already to no avail.

On the troubled machine some big Win Update is not yet made available by Microsoft...

Somebody knows what is going on?

I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I have "restore last session" turned on, but I'd like Firefox wouldn't reopen my last visited site after I close the browser by closing the last tab. In other words: if I close the browser by a regular means (by clicking the rightmost upper X, or by right-clicking the taskbar and choosing close window) it goes to the last viewed site when I reopen the browser – and that's ok – but when I close the last tab and the browser closes, I don't want to see this site again when I reopen Firefox. Is there a way to achieve this? By the way, this is the standard behavior in Google Chrome.
