Until recently, there were websites like Fox.com that I did not have to log back in every time after I left the website, but it kept me logged on. Recently it started asking me to log in every time. Is that someting done by Firefox or by the specific website?

Hi, With Firefox 81.0.2 64-bit running on Windows 7, I can't logout from my account on a very specific site. If I delete the 2 cookies the site wrote on my computer, I'm then presented with the logon window and I'm able to login again but not logout until I delete the 2 fresh cookies the site just put on my computer during the new session. Should I log under a private window, nothing being written to my computer, log out is always possible. I'm also able to log out from my current session with an older version of firefox (50.1.0). This also close the session opened under Firefox 81. At the moment, only one site is behaving like this. I first asked the support of this site. Here's its reply: <<That is an interesting problem you have there! It might be that your session wasn't properly removed from our server but I know that we restarted our webserver 3 days ago, so that should have resolved itself if that was the problem. I don't have any other suggestions, but if a private window works, this suggests an issue with your cookie management of the browser.>>

Please may you help ? TIA

I've tried in a new installation of windows and firefox, if you load more than one digital certificates in the "your certificates" tab, the browser gets stuck in the first digital certificate that you have selected. No matters if you close the browser, when you open it again the browser acts like the certificate is already selected without being prompted when you try to enter a webpage that needs a digital certificate.

For example: Spanish Social Security https://sede.seg-social.gob.es/wps/portal/sede/sede/Ciudadanos/CiudadanoDetalle/!ut/p/z0/rU_LDoIwEPwVOHA02wIhciTGEJQmGkOEXkgDBeujPFqN_r3UO5y8TDKzk5kdoJADlewlWqZFJ9l94gUNSg8HPg4RTmOUbFGUkX0WekcvTjCcuIId0AWTG5gUdyQb0gLtmb6shGw6yA2OD66sj1XxUYtGVKzuFOQIz56gENdhoBHQqpOavzXkite8_DEpJo-DjOCgSjxrVjNplJk4B803LW-ahv_7FRfhdeBDf4vPh7QhKrLtLwe74DE!/

I have marked the checkbox "ask every time" and disabled any master password.

Any help is welcomed!

Hello all,

I've read some bug reports and discussions about the JNLP files blocked in Firefox ( JNLP should be treated as executable , Should not treat JNLP files as Executables (revert bug 1392955) on ESR-68 , Improve usability for JNLP and other executables and JNLP should not be considered an executable extension ). All I'm understanding is it has been blocked since Firefox 67, then "allowed" back again, then blocked for security purposes in Firefox 78. To sum it up, the bug 1576762 is still open, JNLP are still blocked. Nowadays, it's not possible to directly launch a JNLP file, you've got to download it and run it thereafter. Am I right ?

Also, I've taken note of the Firefox ESR release "too late". I've installed the "mainstream" Firefox release on a server in order to be remotely used by end users (via a RDS server, only to browse a internal website, they can't browse the web). What are the results/differences/cons (except the extended support) ?

Thanks in advance for your replies. Jo.

I have been using Firefox for a while. And then I had a different customer laptop which did not have one and I could not install anything. So I used Chrome. Now with a new laptop when I try to import the settings into Firefox, there are multiple duplicate entries found.

Is there an automated way to run through the same and clean it up?

OK. That was rather obtuse. I ended up deleting all the plugins that had "Access MY data for all websites."

WHY? Because the permission was NOT CLEAR nor did it elucidate what exactly does the Add-On have of MY data.

Is "My DATA" the HTML portion? The JavaScript? The URLBOX? Data store? WHAT EXACTLY is "MY DATA"?

why cannot we permanently get rid of the datareporting folder that is created in the profiles folder? It has been stated before that "no data is collected" yada yada yada when the particular options are set, and they are, yet the folder still reappears. I so not allow tab restore, all privacy settings are set to prevent this that i can find; changed in about:config toolkit.telemetry.unified to false toolkit.telemetry.enabled to false datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled to false toolkit.telemetry.archive.enabled to false user_pref("datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled", false); user_pref("datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled", false); user_pref("datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled", false); user_pref("toolkit.telemetry.unified", false);

Stop it please. It slows down page loads and if, IF, no data is collected, why create it???

I'm trying to log in from a different machine than my usual one. Firefox says I am using the incorrect password. I have quadruple checked the spelling of my user name (email address) and my primary password. I am definitely entering them correctly on the new machine yet firefox insists it is wrong. I checked the password in the account settings of my usual machine, under "accounts.firefox" on Firefox's Lockwise (aka logins & passwords) page and indeed I am using the correct email & password. I also searched my email to make sure that I did not change my password and forgot that I had done so. So how can this be?

I BELIEVE, but am not certain, the above described subject and topic are instrumental to the issue I am having. I like to stream a Canadian sports site called Sporstnet Now. Up until a few weeks / months ago every time I clicked to open that site the streaming started automatically. Now that is not happening on a regular basis. Typically when I click on the website it now does not start automatically. To resolve this I can "sign out" and then sign in using my login credentials. This is obviously a time waster. Once I am signed in again, I might be able to stop the streaming and log back in automatically for the next few hours, but certainly by the next morning the streaming does not start automatically and I need to go through the login process described above. There must be a setting somewhere to allow the automatic streaming to start even if I have not visited that website in the last 2 - 3 days. Any help? suggestions? thoughts? Thank you.

I just discovered a gigantic security flaw. If I go back in my history, I can pull up a website such as Experian credit boost. When I pull it up, The logon screen appears and I can see the number of digits that my password contains. NOW I thought that was very bad, however, I can click on the eyeball and the password is fully revealed. what is this about?? I mean anyone with access to this history link can get my password??? As a lifelong insurance man, I am very paranoid about security but broke down and started using Lockwise. Does that have anything to do with it? Need help immediatly.
