I run my own DNS and its managed locally. And while I can move it back manually, I keep finding the setting changed. So I need to find out how I can get control of my machines, OR I have to yank FF from every machine at the house. What can I do to force the machines to use MY DNS and not bypass the security I have put in place.

Having to go to each machine and do this weekly is not a good idea.

I am getting a stack of these errors preventing me from browsing to secure websites which includes google.com. Luckily my Chrome Browser and Edge Browser work fine. This is just another nail in the coffin for me to close the door on this browser which is just getting more and more unreliable.

For now, I have migrated to Chrome to allow me to go about my business of without Firefox telling me Google.com and many other secure sites are unsafe to browse!

Please bring back the override and accept the risk. I would rather have a warning and transfer risk to me rather than have a draconian rule telling me to use a different browser to resolve the issue. For now, you have forced my choice.

I cannot believe I am the only User to experience this issue. I do not want to delete all my cookies etc as I want to be selective in what I delete but again, this option has been taken away from me as well.

Looking forward to a solution.

Thanks.

I installed the add on for the Firefox container but I’m not sure how this works. I opened a regular tab and deleted the cookies for yahoo.

Then I open a container and went to www.yahoo.com. When I switched back to a regular tab, the yahoo cookie was there. I thought the containers kept cookies isolated so that you’re not tracked.

How does this work?

This page [Old question on subject] apparently no longer works as that parameter is TRUE on my system. This one [Using greasemonkey script] doesn't sound encouraging. I don't want to break the china to fix the cabinet door.

I also saw one posting about adding to a Vue script but writing that is not my idea of a solution. Any better suggestions?

Hi!

Is there any settings or about:config settings or addons that disable upgrading HTTP to HTTPS for images? I have HTTPS site which redirects from HTTP to HTTPS from server side so I cant visit it on HTTP mode. This HTTPS only site uses external images from HTTP only site that does not speak HTTPS.

Firefox writes in browser console: > Content Security Policy: Upgrading insecure request ‘http://site.com/someimage.jpg’ to use ‘https’

How do I disable this behavior? Any about:config settings or browser addons to get rid of this?

When attempting to log into support.discord.com, I can't click sign in, as a cookie is blocking me. Discord have told me as it's a specific problem with Firefox, I needed to ask, it also appears to be something that I've setup in Firefox, as a fresh install worked fine.

In the popup for logging in, I get a banner message stating: "Cookies required to use Firefox

To continue signing in using Firefox, allow cookies to be stored on this device. You might see this screen more than once. " with a continue hyperlink at the bottom. This generates a popup asking me to accept a cookie. I accepted this, but it's still blocking me from logging in. I have tried disabling my extensions that might block the cookie, and they have also allowed the cookie that was requested.

On a brand new browser, it's fine. I have strict blocking enabled, with ublock and duckduckgo's extension (all were disabled when I was testing if they were blocking it) and I still can't log in. I'm not sure what else is being blocked (other than google analytics, but that shouldn't stop me logging in).

I do also get some console errors: Uncaught ReferenceError: $ is not defined

Hi,

After starting FF in troubleshoot mode, I keep getting signed out of google when exiting FF.

I'm no longer using the troubleshoot mode -which deleted all the bookmarks on the bookmarks toolbar and browsing history between now and 6 months ago... I can live with that.

What really annoys me is that I have to sign in again and again on Google whenever I start FF

I've read through several threads on FF and even Google ... am I missing something?  I believe my settings 

are correct, but that doesn't solve the problem. Could there be another issue playing here? I use uBlock, Privacy Badger and Facebook Container as add ons. On a Windows 10 desktop, by the way.

My FF version is 102.3.0esr 64 bit.

Hoping for a solution (or at least a cause...) Jo

Dear support team,

at one of our own web pages the encryption certificate was outdated, so I get the message Warning: potential safety risk detected.

More information... => I select Advanced

Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

I select Accept Risk and continue


It's ok, that the certificate is accepted temporarily and the web page is loaded.

It's not ok, that a permanent Certificate Exception is added without any information to the user. I know, that in former versions it was possible to select, whether this exception shall be permanent or temporarily. Could you pls. add this selection?

I'm using Firefox 105.0.1, german version (I translated the messages above, so possibly the wording is a bit different in english)

Hello. I have an online bookstore that links through Amazon in order to allow my visitors to purchase my books. With my latest book entry (not the dozen others from the past) I am suddenly gettting this error message (SEE ATTACHED FILE) below about embedded links. Is there a way I can get a workaround? I am also sending this request to my hosting site (Squarespace) to see if they have a workaround. The odd part is my other dozen books, which were linked many years ago, do not display this error when their embedded link is clicked.

I have autofill turned off, but whenever I go to a a particular page that has a contact form for a web-based software I use for my business, FF automatically puts my first and last names in the respective fields, in the place of existing names for my particular contacts.

How does FF have my name in the first place, since I have never knowingly provided it, how do I remove it from FF, and how do I stop this autofill from happening, since I have it turned off yet it's still working?

I have Autofill turned off and have also gone into about:config and set to False all form autofilling options. Yet FF continues to autofill my first and last name into respective fields in a form I use for my customer contacts in a web-based business software I use.

It does that when the fields are already filled with a customer contact's' names, as well as when I start with an empty form to enter in a new customer contact.

I don't even know how FF got my name nor where to go to delete it so it will stop autofilling it.

What's the solution?

I'm signed in on desktop and phone (they are synced), but I forgot my password, and I don't have a recovery key. I want to reset the password to avoid losing data, just to prevent. If I back up my desktop profile, then reset my password, will this backup be enough to recover all my data? Or is there something that it's stored just online/on cloud by firefox that won't be recovered?
