Hi, As it is, Firefox remember the primary password as long as the software is open and the computer not shut down. This is a very serious security risk! Firefox should forget the primary password after a certain period of time, even when running continuously. At least Firefox should forget the password after the session is suspended or locked. Could you please add this feature in your next release. Sincerely, -- Pierre

Is it possible to turn off EVERY signle certificate check/verification in firefox?

  1. "Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE"
  2. "Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT"
  3. "Bulleted list itemMOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_MITM_DETECTED"
  4. "SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN"
  5. "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER"
  6. "etc etc... EVERY single certificate check!"

In the past it was really easy just start with "--ignore-certificate-errors". Now it's like moon landing, all options are hidden or have under a hundrred layer option list. Anything in the "about:config" ? browser.ssl_override_behavior 1 security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling false

(Please do NOT comment its unsafe and other things, that's not what I'm looking for)

In my settings it says my settings are being managed by my organisation. I am not in an organisation.

I have changed my password onm sync so I presume everything is signed out everywhere but the message persists. Who has unauthorised access to my account and how did they get it? How do I secure my account?

Hello Everyone.

I've been using Firefox for the longest time I can remember. I loved it. And I also have found the Firefox Account function quite convenient and useful. Also an avid fan. However, as of two months ago, I needed to re-install my Ubuntu OS on my laptop and of course Firefox as well. I enabled 2FA as I did before and it was a breeze. However, when I started using it (Account log-in/log-out) I keep getting asked to have the confirmation via my email and NOT via the 2FA app generated code I registered with it. At first, I still have the patience for it. But after several months, I am already pissed off. It's such an unbearable nuisance already, when I always have my 2FA app that I can always refer to in a snap. I really hate what's happening now. Can anybody please tell me what went wrong with Firefox 2FA account and why it keeps bugging me for email confirmation and not use the 2FA generated code? Makes me think all my efforts in setting the 2FA app useless and I've had enough already.

Thank you everyone for your help.

I entered my password accidentally into the username field on a webmail page. It keeps showing several entries I made in the past every time I log in. How do I get rid of these entries? I searched the subject and all the suggestions of deleting it in the dropdown box with SHIFT+DELETE or CTRL+DELETE don't work.

I also use Vivaldi browser and I have the same issue when logging in to webmail. The list of usernames is different from Firefox so I know the lists are tied to the particular browser. I was able to delete the entire list with Vivaldi and I logged in to webmail and auto-fill list is gone. Can't do the same in Firefox. Please help.

I'm using the latest Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit) in Windows 10 21H2 (64-bit). I've got Enhanced Tracking Protection set to Strict so the new Total Cookie Protection should be working. To test this I went to https://www.grc.com/cookies/forensics.htm but it shows that 3rd party cookies aren't being isolated. Is this a Firefox issue or is this a problem with the website? Is there another website or way to test the new Firefox Total Cookie Protection?

Hello, my logins are gone since yesterday. about:profiles gives me just 1 profile. in the profile folder there is the logins.json and the key4.db file but it wont load the two files when I start firefox. They contain 100+ logins.

All the troubleshoot sites say, I should make sure, these two files are in the main profile folder and they are. The two files also dont seem corrupted.

Thank you.

My software router isn't configured with a certificate so when I log in to router settings via its webGUI using my local domain IP address 192.168.*.* I get and accept the insecure message and can edit the router settings. However when I save the router configuration to my hard drive I get the file name placeholder with zero bytes. Obviously that's bad news if you go back to the XML file and find zero bytes. I tried adding 192.168.*.* to FF site exceptions. That gets the Webgui past the warning messages but the XML backup file the router wants to save is still zero bytes. This doesn't happen with Chrome.

What can I do?

Thanks

Hi,

I am a keen user of Firefox Sync (across multiple devices) and also use a primary password to keep the passwords store secure.

I understand that Firefox Sync needs to get its password somewhere so that it can connect when Firefox starts. I would prefer that Firefox Sync either does not autoconnect, or autoconnects with a delay.

Even better, I would prefer if Firefox Sync did not need the password store to connect (it could use a session key that is periodically updated), and if the primary password was only requested the first time entering an actual password was needed.

In an old question, 2 options are mentionned to prevent autoconnect and to set the autoconnect delay. They do not work in Firefox 101 Have they disappeared?
