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.

I decided to install HTTPS-Only Mode and now realize I've made a mistake because most of the sites I try to contact make me switch to HTTP anyway. So I want to disable or uninstall HTTPS-Only Mode, but I can't figure out how to do it. In the article that sucked me in, HTTPS-Only Mode in Firefox, I chose Enable/Disable HTTPS-Only Mode, but it doesn't tell you how to disable. First, it says click on the Menu button, but there is no menu button on that page, so you can't carry out subsequent steps. Second, I marked the button Don't Enable the HTTPS-Only Mode and re-started, but that did nothing to disable the mode. Third, that left me with Turn off HTTPS-Only Mode for certain sites, which is far too tedious. I tried clicking on OFF but only Temporarily OFF appears to be enabled. I can't believe I can't get out of this. Before the browser automatically chose HTTP or HTTPS, which was fine and I shouldn't have accepted the HTTPS-Only Mode.

Someone already asked to de-install HTTPS Everywhere, which sounds like the same thing. It was marked solved, but in fact the two answers were merely descriptive and thus useless. Please help.

Hello,

I like Firefox unfortunately all browsers are so 1999... It is impossible to use without addons, if you browser internet a lot and have opened a lot of tabs and windows. I bumped into this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1155401 Saying: this will open another instance of Firefox. But nothing is bulletproof! So ask, if this will isolate me from addons, which I would open in first instance of Firefox.

Thanks for help.

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.

Hi, folks. Firefox (87.0) has just started blocking my popups on gmail even though I have an exception for mail.google.com. (I can no longer compose/edit a message in a new window, for example.) - I can't choose to "allow popups for mail.google.com," as that option is grayed out (likely since I already have that exception in place), and if I choose to "show" the window, it isn't functional (just blank). - I tried starting in Firefox Safe Mode (extensions disabled) and have the same trouble. -If I edit my popup blocker settings so that I'm not blocking _any_ popups, this does resolve the problem: gmail functions as it should. But of course I'd prefer to have a popup blocker in place for other sites. I welcome any wisdom. Thanks!

Is the version of Firefox in the Linux repositories the China version with an American facelift?

I know you all do not have command and control of this, but I thought someone should be aware that the default Firefox browser for Linux installs seems to be the CCP Firefox and not American version. With all the CISA activity, it might be something to look into.

Kernel: 5.4.0-70-generic x86_64 GCC v: 9.3.0 Desktop: Cinnamon 4.6.7 Distro: Linux Mint 20 Ulyana Base: Ubuntu 20.04 focal

I am writing a program that requires me to detect when a shift key is pressed and do something. Something like

window.addEventListener('keydown', event => console.log(event), false); // expect to see an event logged to console when pushing the "shift" key

This works great on all browsers except Firefox. "alt" and "fn" keys are also not able to be detected on Firefox. Is there some sort of advanced security settings I can disable to let me capture these things?

Thanks in advance.

Firefox Firstly, let me start by acknowledging the wonderful work the team of volunteers do to in producing an FREE excellent browser for which I have been a fan since your inception. However, unfortunately Firefox has been caught up in the hysteria of the planet over security issues with the Internet.

Undoubtedly there are such issues, just as they currently are with Covid 19 such issues, but the solution to Covid 19 is not to carpet bomb the whole of the planet - but, in actual fact that is what Firefox is now doing with websites security.

I build websites for a hobby and currently have published about 50 over the last 20 years , many of those are informational only sites. So, there is no exchange of data, so no avenue for any security breach or for damage to be done to either my website any visitors computer or the server upon which my websites resolves.

My first website was published in 1998 even way back then we all knew that you approached any website with caution. However with a bit of due diligence it was possible to make a reasonable judgement as to the nature of validity of the website and those that constituted some risk and those that constituted none.

One of the websites I publish is goofygoogle.com. I have had this website since I purchased the domain in 2001. The website is informational only, however despite the fact it has been around for that period of time and you can find out who the domain owner in any WHOIS search, for the first time ever Firefox is now telling their browser user/visitors “Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead”.

This, is in spite of the fact there is NO potential security risk 'Ahead' -AT ALL, in visiting this site.

Can we please wind back the hysteria or egotism or whatever else is the basis for this overreaction OR if we don’t want to do that, can we please get even smarter so that we actually can interrogate the site properly to determine if there actually is a “Potential Security Risk Ahead” before we ‘slander’ it?

I’m in your hands

Thank you

Today I found out that Many apps on my system work in the background and slowing down my machine. I enlisted the consulting assistants of an expert and was told that the biggest are Adobe and Microsoft. I had a cleaning done to my system and the results were amazing. I disable Apps I didn't need, uninstall App I did not use in a long time and disable services that did not provided me with any substantive experience or improvement in productivity. The results were amazing. My system was running faster than I have ever seen it run, including the first year after I purchase it. Well, about 2 hours later, I got this notification from Microsoft saying that I have to enable these optional services because Edge would make it better for me to serve the web and have a custom experience and get tailored adds based on my activity. If I had a choice I would pick No Adds. After I read their notification that I had difficulty reading and understanding little of it, I felt pressure to signed up with Edge as my browser. These services were eating my resources like there was no tomorrow and were effecting my productivity level. Microsoft's notification included a screen shot of the changes I did today in my settings with the disable buttons in Privacy and Personalization areas. I have all the required setting about diagnostics, etc. enabled, is there anything I can do to prevent them from using me like a cheap prostitute? Can they shot my account down for that? Is there any other OS providers I could get?

The firefox browser does not prompt to select a valid user client authentication certificate (stored in the Windows cert store under Personal User certs) for access to sites. This means the browser can not be used for certificate based MFA.

Changing the browser to use system certs (security.enterprise_roots.enabled = True) does not help resolve the issue

In recent version Firefox blocks all popups in the private mode even on sites, where I have popups enabled in normal mode. I am pretty sure it is a new behavior. Popups can be enabled even in private mode, but it is not saved. In some earlier version Firefox in the private mode used to apply popup settings from both private and normal mode. Is there any way to get this behaviour back except downgrade ?
