When I attempt to access several websites, I am prompted to turn off my ad blocker. As I have not added a third-party software or extension that does such, I assume it is part of Firefox proper. Search as I might, I cannot find any specific reference to such a thing in "Settings". SO...how can I temporarily disable the 'Ad Blocker' device that is part of Firefox? The 'TEMPORARY' part is important, as I do greatly value the function!

I get a email from a web site that I have to log into on a regular basis.They are telling me starting today the web site will require TLS 1.2. I went to https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html to check like the web site informed me to do so. Click on Continue

Once the page completes the test, scroll down to the Protocol Features section. If Yes is displayed next to TLS 1.2, your browser will continue to work as it currently does with Talent Suite applications.

Mine shows 1.3 yes but not 1.2. I look it up 1.3 is not backwards compatible. So I changed the security.tls.version.max to 3 now everything for the TLS shows no when I run test I am lost

  Thanks for any help

Hi there, I would like to “generally accept all cookies” for future surfing through the internet. I found this description (see below), but it doesn’t seem to work (help might me older before latest browser updates), could someone tell me how to set Firefox to accept all cookies? Thank you.

1. Click the Tools menu from the top toolbar. 2. Choose Options. 3. Click the Privacy tab. 4. Under "History" select "Use custom settings for history" from the drop-down menu beside "Firefox will." 5. Ensure that the checkboxes for "Accept cookies from sites" and "Accept third-party cookies" are both checked. 6. Click OK.

Third Party Session Cookies

Hello,

I am a college professor at University of New Haven, which uses the Canvas online learning system. Within Canvas, we have access to the Kaltura media content system where we can create, upload, and share videos with our students through the Canvas application.

This has worked fine until recently. Now, whenever I try to access my Kaltura media through Canvas, I get the following error message:

"It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies." (see attached photo for reference)

I assume there was a routine Firefox update sometime recently that imposed stricter restriction on third-party cookies. But I have followed all the instructions here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/third-party-cookies-firefox-tracking-protection?redirectslug=disable-third-party-cookies&redirectlocale=en-US), and I am still unable to access Kaltura through Canvas (I get the same error message).

FYI - I am able to access Kaltura through Canvas on Chrome, so I know this is a Firefox-specific issue. But I hate Chrome and want to keep using Firefox!

Is this something you can help me with?

Let me know - thanks!

Firefox Blocking Allowed Pop-Ups After Update

We run Firefox on all our clerk computers at the public library where I work. Since the most recent update, our online circulation website which we use to check out books, receives a pop-up blocked message every time we try to print a hold receipt for an item. The website has always been added as an exception to our pop-up blockers, and until just after the most recent update, the blocker had no problem allowing the website through. Now it does. I have tried clearing the browser caches, removing and adding the website to the exceptions list again, and restarting the browser, as well as adding different variations of the website to the exceptions list. In the end, we just had to turn the pop-up blockers off. I searched online for anyone else who had this issue, but the ones I found dated back to 2014-2015, and the solution they came up with no longer seems to exist in the Firefox settings. So I'm hoping to find an answer here! Thanks.

Hello,

I would like to ask you about error code that I got after last firefox upgrade to 78.3.1esr (64-bit). Everytime I go to certain websites I get this error message:

Error code: SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE

Please, can someone advise about this? I do not see any known bug with this code. I did not have this problem before this upgrade.

Thank you, Martin

Trying to submit a review on Hunterfan.com using Firefox is not possible. Despite turning off such "Privacy and Security" settings as "Permissions->Block pop-up windows" I still get the warning "Disable Ad-blocker to submit a review" and can never submit the review.

This has also happened on other web sites where I was submitting a feedback, or support request form and has necessitated using another browser to do so.

QUESTION: what security setting do I need to change when trying to submit input to such sites?

Adblock Plus

I tried to play a program on the CBS site; I've done this two or three times a year for many years with no problems, but this time the site said it could not load its ads (error 113), and therefore would not play the show. I've always watched the ads before, never a problem until now. I checked the icon for Adblock Plus, and it said that something had caused it to reset to default; it said I could fix this by removing and reinstalling Adblock Plus, which I did, but that made no difference. I don't know what default is, or what I had before (a friend set up my computer for me, so I don't know details), but I just want the CBS site to be able to load its ads so I can watch the program. What do I do? Thanks.
