The browser crashes about every two or three days. I have enabled all four boxes in preferences (Priv & Sec settings) but the crash reporter does not appear. Is there anywhere in the Fedora Linux system where I can get some info about why this keep happening?

On FoxNews.com, some articles include a section at the bottom for user comments. First-level comments frequently receive additional second- and third-level comments.

First-level comments are working fine, but lower-level comments are partially obliterated with a string of black diamonds with question marks �?U��N�@?�.

This is not an issue when I use Safari, but it is on Firefox.

Infinite Security Alert loop on Firefox browser for https site using SSL Certificate

Hi There,

I'm hoping someone can help me on this I have exhausted several options so far.

I am trying to access a https site using an SSL Certificate (Specifically Chain of Trust with a root, intermediate and server certificate) on Firefox, however whenever I attempt to visit the site a recurring Security Alert pop up continues to appear with the message: "A secure connection with site cannot be verified. Would you still like to proceed?" . The certificate isn't signed which is the reason for the popup.

I use the website frequently on other browsers and subsequently press yes and continue to the site, but on Firefox the same Security Alert pop continues to appear regardless of the number of times I accept it.The issue is specifically related to Firefox as I can accept the certificate on Chrome, IE and Edge and not face the same issue.

I have tried multiple options to circumvent the issue, including adding the CA's into my Trusted Root Certification Authorities on my Windows (and setting security.enterprise_roots.enabled to true), and manually importing the certificates into Firefox under the Authorities section of the Options menu, clearing cache and cookies and restarting browser/machine. I have added the hostname of the site to the hosts file, and even as a test temporarily disabled SCL validation to see if this would prevent it. However in all cases the security popup continues to reappear, in an infinite loop.

Does anyone know of any alternative ways that will allow me to proceed to the website, or circumvent the Security Alert loop problem? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I want to stop hackers from making changes to my browser settings that shuts off my firewall and anit-virus. i want to know what they are changing to accomplish this. A simple refresh of Firefox (it would be a reset of any other browser) alleviates the problem, so I know it is in here. I don't think sharing my data will offer anything as the browser has been 'refreshed' but will if someone thinks it will help.

Firefox 80.0.1 64-bit; Windows 10 Pro

When Enhanced Tracking is Strict some websites lose functionality.

The only options seem to be.

    Disable Enhanced Tracking for that site

or Set Enhanced Tracking to Standard or Custom for all sites

So far, the frequented websites all seem to work with Strict except one and, for it, I would like to have it set to Standard rather than none.

If I am correct, let me know. if wrong, either direct me to instructions or just tell me. Yes, I have looked.

Thanks!

PS. My current option, for that one website, is to run Firefox in a separate Sandbox and set all websites to Standard.

Some time a go I've configured access to the smart card in the Spanish id card in Firefox, and it work. But I'm recently trying to use again and it doesn't.

I'm in a Debian 10 with the libpkcs11-dnie installed (with its dependencies) and I've set it up in a firefox-beta. Is where I've added months a go the module (/usr/lib/libpkcs11-dnie.so), then I had logged in and saw the certificate in "Your Certificates".

Since then many updates came but I didn't need again to use this card. I'm trying it now that firefox-beta is 82.0 and the "log in" button is never enabled.

When I've tried with another firefox, for example the esr (78.3.0esr) coming with debian, I have to add this module as it wasn't there. I've clicked "Load" and fill the form with "module name" and "module filename" (the same file that I've mention before) and when I click 'ok', I receive an alert "Unable to add module". Same experience with firefox-stable (81.0.2) and with firefox-devel (82.0b9).

I don't even know if the issue comes from firefox. Is there a way to debug further the origin of this alert message or why this is not being recognized by the application?

Thanks

Hi

I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to Strict. Some sites may throw you out if you select "I do not accept" (cookies). Some sites make a statement along the lines "By using our service you are deemed to have accepted cookies". If in the former case I select "accept" or in the latter continue to use the site, would that override the Firefox "Strict" setting or would the Firefox Strict setting still block cookies etc?

My apologies if this is already answered elsewhere. I have looked at the help pages but much of this stuff is over my head.

When I use a video calling website, Firefox uses my camera. However, after I am done with the call and I close the video call tab, the camera is still in use by Firefox. The camera stops being used as soon as I close out the Firefox browser entirely.

Как насчёт добавления возможности пополнять список блокируемых трекеров и фингерпринтов своими списками? Или-же такая возможность есть? Тут скорее просьба к mozilla, добавьте это пожалуйста. Мне нравится статистика сбора трекеров, и я считаю её полезной. При включении privacy possum/badger статистика с них не будет собираться, то-есть вся эта панель состояния защиты становится бесполезной, ибо количество трекеров в списках этих расширений больше раза в два. Хотелось-бы получить большую безопасность и удобность, особенно если в теории это является одной из целей нынешнего Firefox, и если это возможно.

If HTTPS-Only Mode is turned on and the Connection Settings has a HTTP URL for the Automatic proxy configuration URL, Firefox does not load the proxy configuration file and all sites that require a proxy will fail to load.

There does not appear to be a way to add an exception in this case. The example given at HTTPS-Only Mode in Firefox does not work because when the configuration URL is navigated to in the address bar, a download prompt appears and there is no lock icon shown.

I believe this is a serious bug in HTTPS-Only Mode because when someone turns it on, it will work because the proxy configuration is already loaded, but when Firefox restarts they will no longer receive their proxy configuration and will lose access to all sites that require a proxy.

This box pops-up while the website's home page is loading.

FF is set to block: *all third-party cookies *tracking content in all windows *cryptominers *fingerprinters FF is also set to block pop-up windows - the website in question is NOT an exception, and so FF should be blocking pop-ups on this site.

I was using FF vs 82.0.2 before the pop-up started appearing a day or two ago. I upgraded to 83.0 hoping this would take care of the pop-up, but it didn't. I'm sure it returns with each new launch of the browser b/c I have FF set to clear out cookies, site data and history when it's closed. But it seems the pop-up block should step in despite those settings.

The site has apparently found a way to thwart the AdBlock feature that will block individual ads, as occasionally I've successfully used the "Block an ad on this page" feature to kill cookie use advisory banners. Could whatever this site has done to render AdBlock's "Block an ad on this page" useless...also be what's over-riding my pop-up settings? If that wouldn't be the case, how is this pop-up getting around my settings?

Or is it not a pop-up? If it's not a pop-up, what is it and is there a setting to get rid of it, or prevent it?
