For a few days now, Firefox (Dev. Edition, version 90) has not allowed me to manually visit http:// websites, and automatically and silently redirects to their https:// version. This is on every single website I have tried.

Things that I have tried:

Disable/remove HTTPS Everywhere Enable then re-disable built-in Firefox HTTPS Only Mode

Restart Firefox 'Forget about this site' Clear cache Clear site preferences A bunch of stuff in about:config (fallback-to-https, stricttransportpreloadlist etc)

Hello,

Since 2 step authentication has been added to the Mozilla add-on accounts, we no longer have access to this account. We have the email address and password, but cant enter the code for the 2 step authentication as the code is sent to an email that no longer exists. We have another account that we would like to transfer an extension to from the old email account. Is there any way to access the old account or transfer the extension from the old account to the new one without having the access to emails sent to the email address of the old account?

This is important to us as the id of the extension used within the non-existent account is preventing us from loading another extension with the same id. This is to prevent us from having to rebuild our NMH software that must use the appropriate id for communication.

Any help would be appreciated.

Will YOU PLEASE STOP trying to make me use an email that you choose, and NOT what I want to use. Everytime I try to change my login, I get the message "you must use your primary email". To my mind the primary email is the one that was my FIRST. I am trying to. To my mind [REMOVED BY MODERATOR] is MY PRIMARY EMAIL, THIS IS THE FIRST I HAVE EVER HAD, AND I DO NOT WANT TO CHANGE IT. I WANT TO CHANGE MY EMAIL ADDRESS TO MY ORIGINAL, not the one that this website keeps trying to make me use. Can you just flaming STOP IT. I believe in the freedom of speech, and what I do on my PC is MY business not mozilla's. So if you can get yourselves sorted out, please let me know. I have just read your blurb on the RH side of this page, and the experience I have had, is a million miles away from my experience with this website. One final thing "I WILL NOT BE DICTATED TO, MY EMAIL IS UP TO ME NOT MOZILLA."

How do I separate search from address? I do *NOT* want Google or any other search engine to have every web address (URL) that I enter. When I search, that's one thing. Directly entering a URL is completely different. Firefox automatically updated to the latest: 89.0 (64-bit). Now the Firefox Home page redirects everything I enter in the search box to the address bar! This is a problem! This is one reason I don't use Chrome. How do I configure Firefox to stop doing this?

I stopped update to the new fancy Firefox, gonna stay with the 88.0.1 release (as I did with Thunderbird 68). Would be nice to have (just!) security update to previous versions instead of forced update to new clean features.

Those who are interested how to stop upgrade: put into your registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox] "DisableAppUpdate"=dword:00000001

Hi, I have been unable to access any google services (e.g. youtube, google) due to the following error message: Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue.

Web sites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.youtube.com because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

View Certificate

Could you please advise how to resolve this? I reinstalled firefox and that did not help. Certificates are installed and have expiry date of 2031. Other browsers are not affected.

Thank you.

I use CCleaner on a regular basis and have been for over a decade and a half now. With CCleaner, I have the ability to disable unwanted browser extensions. Typically, this works just fine but lately, I've been running into an issue where CCleaner shows several Firefox extensions that do not show up in the browser's options menu: Bing, Amazon, Google, Wikipedia and DuckDuckGo. I disable these in CCleaner like I usually do yet they re-appear in CCleaner as extensions when I open a new browser window after disabling them. Are these really some sort of hidden extensions in Firefox? And if so, how the heck do I get rid of them permanently? I don't want any of these extensions. Thanks in advance.

I have been using Firefox for years now, but since an update a couple of months back, when I deploy a new internal site I receive an error stating that the "Secure Connection Failed" because of "Error code: SEC_ERROR_REUSED_ISSUER_AND_SERIAL". There is a official workaround explaining how to bypass this issue, however it doesn't work. I have tested the same sites with Chrome, Edge, IE and it always works why is Firefox suddenly not working? Below are images of my local lab replicating the issue.

I'm a brand-new Firefox user, just trying to import or recreate my login data from Chrome. Every time I've clicked "Import" from Lockwise and checked the appropriate boxes, I get a dialog box telling me that the import was successful... but Lockwise still tells me "No logins found." I do know that importation of some kind is happening because my bookmarks imported just fine. Prompts to save my logins still appear, but passwords do not get saved, as evidenced by the "No logins found" message where a list of my saved logins should be. When I attempt to create a login manually, I get a dialog box like the one used to create a Primary Password, except it looks more like a system dialog box, something from Windows rather than from Firefox (image 1.1). I've tried entering all the passwords I can think of into this dialog box--my OS password, my Firefox password, the password I'm trying to save, the password I would choose for my Primary Password if I had one--only for another box to pop up stating "Unable to change password" (image 1.2). Upon closing this box, a red banner appears stating that there was an error while trying to save the password.

One of the times I was trying to use Lockwise, a bar appeared at the top of the screen stating that I needed to use my Primary Password--which I didn't have and still don't--to access my logins. I can't remember what I did because I've tried several things, but if I figure out how to recreate that I'll update this post. I attempted to create a Primary Password from my Options menu by checking the box next to "Use a Primary Password." Even though it clearly recognizes that I don't have a Primary Password set, I still get an "Unable to change primary password" notice (image 2). I've tried resetting it, but to no avail. I have also followed the advice of all the relevant articles I could find (e.g., the help article on what to do if your passwords aren't saving), but nothing so far has fixed the issue.

Lastly--it seems like I'm getting the system-dialog-looking box about every hour or so, always twice in a row: I'll click "cancel," and then it will show up again. I also can't seem to log out of my Firefox account, as that same dialog box appears and prevents me from doing so.

What is going on here? Is there anything I can do to fix it?
