Hi I am on Linux using Firefox-esr 91.5.0 and suddenly it started to show me that message on settings page. I have no Antivirus or anything. Were the problem comes from? On help/about page there's nothing mentioning the update restriction, neither when I click on the message. But it shows me a couple of different settings. Another thing that I've found so far is the setting "Always check if Firefox is your default browser" is unchecked AND disabled. I'm so worried about the issue, appreciate your help.

I am constantly getting emails cut off that do not get cut on friends programs. I keep getting these damn "secure connection" crap in the middle of a program that I am interested in. I pisses me off that cannot watch something that came from a friend that they are able to watch without the cutoff. Either quit cutting me off or I will cut moz://a off and go to another carrier. I have reached the end of my frustration!!!

FIrefox prompts to save username and passwords on sites or to update them when changed. However, if I select "Never ask" when the prompt shows up, it will add the site to the password exceptions list in Options. But when the browser is shut down and opened in a new session, that list is cleared.

I manually saved two banking sites to the exceptions list, then closed and restarted Firefox and found NO entries in the Exceptions list.

This is the same question asked by 'Gramps' 12/19/17 BUT this is version 91.6.0esr. Also, "Clear History" is OFF, and there is no advanced system care running.

There is another question; "Exceptions list for "Remember logins for sites" clears on exit." #1171666. This mentions deleting file [permissions.sqlite]. What else is stored in this file that I will have to re-create if I delete it?

Thanks

When joining a Zoom meeting hosted on the browser rather than installed Zoom app, my speakers are not working and the troubleshooting error messages says the browser is blocking zoom from accessing the speakers. I can't find a setting in Firefox preferences to block/allow it. Speakers work on YouTube/Vimeo with no problems (speaker volume 100% and not muted). Speakers had been working with Zoom until a couple weeks ago. I don't want to install the Zoom app just because Google hates privacy and and I don't want to help them own my privacy anymore than I must. I use DuckDuckGo for the default search engine, have Ghostery for an Extension/add-on, and have the Firefox browser set for private window always. I have tried various cookie settings for the Zoom meetings and even the dreaded "accept all cookies" and have Firefox cookie handling set to Standard, with deleting all cookies and history upon exit. I am on 64-bit Windows 10 up to date as of 2/16/22, Dell computer updated to same date, and latest update of Firefox 2/18/22. I have done a number of web searches and not finding the speaker topic or error message other than three unanswered help requests from others with the same problem dated from July-Sept 2021.

How to delete prior visited websites

When I check the connection settings on a website (lock icon left to the address bar) and go to more information I can see how many times I have visited this website. I already deleted my entire history and all the data but I still can see how many times I have visited different websites in the past. Where is this stored and how to delete this information?

The problem is it will show suggestions in the address bar. There is a setting to to remove such suggestions but I only want to remove some results. Why doesn't this part of the "history" gets deleted?

I am using FF 97.0.1 Win 10

This seems to be something from Kaspersky labs:

(function(){ var KasperskyLab = {SIGNATURE:"8413313B-34AF-E24F-BC0F-C01964DF03AD"

Why is this appearing in my page when browsed with FF? What can I do to eliminate insertion of undedirable code into my pages?

I recently got a new phone so I disabled 2FA (Microsoft app) so I could activate it again on my new phone. Now I can't activate it because with either Microsoft or Google Authenticator, when I scan the QR code or type the manual code, the 2FA code displayed in the app gets rejected.

Some time ago (a few years), when Firefox stopped using multiple add-ons for a very customized user experience, I switched to using Sea Monkey, where, like with the very old Firefox, I loved using the NoScript add-on. But now SM seems to have dropped so far behind in development, many website would not work. So now I've had to come back to the mainstream Firefox.

But without NoScript, I can't figure out how to handle specific scripts. Isn't there some way to do that with version 96.0?

I see in the settings where it looks like I can block pretty much everything that comes along. In that case, I might need to allow specific scripts for some sites. Or conversely, I could allow most scripts, but then I can't find any way to block only certain specific scripts.

Is there some way to handle specific scripts with versison 96.0? If it matters, I'm still using Windows 7.

Thank you very much.

I received this message yesterday:

'''Dear Administrator,

Starting on March 24, 2022 Accessing Google accounts with a browser that does not support JavaScript or that has JavaScript turned off does not allow Google to run a complete risk analysis. This puts your organization's accounts at increased risk of phishing and takeover by malicious actors.

users will no longer be able to sign into their Google accounts on browsers that do not support JavaScript or that have JavaScript turned off. This means they won’t be able to access Google Workspace services, such as Gmail and Drive, unless they change to browsers supporting JavaScript or turn it on in their current browsers.
''

Will firefox have a option to allow javascript? Firefox is my browser and I would hate to have to go somewhere else, however if I cant to get my email I will have no choice. please advise

https://www.gfashion.com/en/ This website is important for me. I have saved all passwords and users info to firefox. When I login in , the username and password is empty.

Even if I click the username input box, the stored user list will not be displayed, but when I click the password box, the stored user password list can be displayed, which is unacceptable. I also tried in mobile version. It is the same thing.

I have used all the methods mentioned in Support, but still cannot solve the problem. But the website works well in Chrome and Edge. Although I like this software very much, I have to use it sparingly because it is troublesome to log in every time. I hope you can support this type of website, thank you.

Hi everyone,

I am running Firefox 91.5 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.5 and just noticed that all my addons have been disabled and can't re-enable them.

Some of them are quite common modules such as Disconnect or Privacy Badger, so wondering what this may be.

There is a similar post on this forum dating back to 2019 and it mentioned a fix on Firefox was to be developped.

Anyone experiencing the same issue at the moment.?

Please see attached screenshot.

Kind regards,

Alex

Hi there,

I cleared my cache after it told me it had stored a gazillion GB in data - but the big number was still there after clearing the cache. Needless to say my harddrive isn't even as big as the GB number shown, so there must be a gremlin in there somewhere? Thought you'd want to know. I'm using the latest Firefox on Mac OS 10.15.7

I have had it with Firefox playing cop. I really have. I have a site that I visit frequently but these past two updates have now broken my ability to sign into the site at all, even in private mode. All I get is the shield and human icons with the strike-through and the error message on the user name/password field that says: This Connection Is Not Secure. Logins Entered Here Could Be Compromised. Learn More.

I've hit the escape button, tried private windows, done everything I can including resetting which was my last resort and which I hate doing, there's no more whitelist, no way to bypass anything, this is totally unacceptable that I cannot get past this. Firefox is becoming more useless to me as they try to become more and more in control of what I can and cannot do. If there is no override to this, then I have to find a different browser because it's pretty useless to use one browser for some sites and another for other sites, don't you think? So if someone has a workaround for this problem, can you please tell me what it is?

I realize, this is an old issue and has been around for years, but please for the love of god, make the master password popup less frustrating. Every single site with a login field triggers the popup. It really needs a setting, where you can browse the web and it never shows a popup, unless you click a button to actually login (could be next to the URL field)

Is there any known workaround, apart from always logging in?

in an effort to make my onlione presence most secure, i set my security and privacy settings to the maximum i could. this included the permanent privacy mode, but i was careful to set all my most commonly used websites to állow'in order to not be forced to go through hell anytime i needed to login. i quickly found that having that állow'list made no difference and i still had to go through burning hoops to log in every time so i reverted my settings back to how they used to be. well, not i am stuck in a situation where i still havew to go through multiple 2nd and 3rd and 4th tier security protocols for every website, none of my settings are being saved at all.

this has turned things into a real nightmare when what was expected was for the everyday sites i access would not force me to go through that, sites i access daily and trust. sort of the entire point of the állow'list. but it doesn't work at all, and going back to previous settings has essentially locked me into that world where i am endlessly having to login, approve my computer, my browser, verify my login [up to 4x each login on some sites!] and just want this to end.

so how do i get firefox to just go back to how the settings were before when just plain setting them to how they were before doesn't do it???
