After testing Webroot it revealed loss of local PC controls and it appeared to be a cloud minded herd mentality app.. (I used Kaspersky for many year with undesirable stuff disabled.. great app until Putin stepped in)...

Firefox ran great with all performance tweaks applied to date and removal of anything Google (banned from some countries due to information preditation). 0 Trust here. Google does not exist on this machine as has been ripped from the registry and file syste. - FYI

Uninstall did not work! Had to boot on a CD and access thefile system and manually delete files to remove the webroot bat from my OS..

I need assistance on removing the nasty policy from FireFox "Your browser is being managed by your organization."

RE: "https://anywhere.webrootcloudav.com/wtsff/live/latest.xpi"

I removed all found in the registry, file system and FireFox "About:Config" without any success.

My Fox is highly customized as a result of many years of "No, I don't want these things happening -or- I do not want mybrowser accessing and communications with ..."

Please advise on any steps that may exist before I either do a fresh install -or- switch to anothe browser.

Many thanx for the view!

Why can I not use certain websites on Firefox, when they work fine with other browsers. For instance, I could not book a flight on United.com but did so easily with Chrome. I assume there is some security thing that does not allow united, or other sites, to fill in the necessary info. This has been going on for 10 years. Sometimes, I realize it is a Firefox problem and go to another site, and sometimes now. I want to use FF, but since, I so often get blocked, it is a hassle. Any suggestions on what to do? Thanks.

I can't recall if this problem occurs all of the time or not. The problem is this.............when buying something online or donating online using a credit card I often get the message...."Save credit card number-choose Yes or No" or something to that effect. Is there a way to modify the settings on my browser so that I do not get this question about saving my credit card number? Or is this an issue with how the website I am browsing at works and therefore I cannot make a one-time fix? Thanks.

I am using Linux and the latest browser 103.0.1

Permission Problem with Camera

We have a customer using our SaaS solution running through Firefox 91.12.0 ESR. The web application we provide requires access to the camera on the local machine so we can capture a photo. We give them instructions and they configure their instance of Firefox to ALLOW access to the camera, along with several other adjustments (like allowing pop-ups, and no autofill).

However, whenever they restart Firefox the camera permission reverts back to the DEFAULT of Always Ask. The other settings adjustments we make, like pop-ups and no autofill stick around, but not the camera setting.

We've checked the PREF.js file in the Profile folder and that doesn't appear to be a problem. On our in-house machines we are running the same version of Windows and Firefox and cannot reproduce the problem.

The customer has recently applied the upgrade from an earlier version of Firefox ESR to 91.12.0. The customer has also imaged the PC and copied over to a large number of additional machines for use around their organization. This problem is causing a serious disruption to their deployment of the updated PC's as we work with them to try and troubleshoot the problem.

Any ideas on what to try would be appreciated.

"Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered - I have this ticked but when I restart Firefox, it is UNticked. I created a new clean profile, and the same thing happens with that. This started I think once I updated to version 102.0 64bit recently, and seems to have broken Twitter login - each time I have to go to settings, and clear history - after doing some experiments as to what bit of History needed clearing, it was the setting "offline site data" that was the critical one. Why won't Firefox, even in a brand new profile with no addons, REMEMBER that I have ticked ""Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered"? Firefox desktop, 102.0 64 bit, Windows 7. Thank you.

I am attempting to browse a site that will be taken down soon, and that site is only in http format: "http://www.sfrpg-discussion.net/viewtopic.php"

I have gone into settings, to "Privacy & Security" to bottom where the "HTTPS-Only Mode" is located, and selected "Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode". I have gone into "about:config", looked for the "dom.security.https_only_mode", and set "dom.security.https_only_mode", "dom.security.https_only_mode_ever_enabled", and "dom.security.https_only_mode_ever_enabled_pbm" to false.

Unfortunately, Firefox keeps trying to load "https://www.sfrpg-discussion.net/viewtopic.php", which does not exist. When I select "Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows" I get the option to connect to an "http" site, but when I click on that button Firefox redirects me to an https site anyway.

There is no 'lock' icon present in the address bar or to either side of it.

I tried setting to "Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows" with an exception for the site, but Firefox still redirects to an https site anyway.

Can the "Don't enable HTTPS-Only Mode" stop Firefox enabling HTTPS?

Hello,

    I bought a p.c. from Originpc.com back in 2020 and it had an option to have firefox preinstalled on the computer. Being a lazy person such as myself and thinking I would save the headache of having to install it through Microsoft Edge, I opted into having it installed. Upon booting up my computer and opening firefox, I realized that the homepage was set to originpc.com. I figured that wasn't super weird, but I changed it to google.com because I didn't want that website to be my default homepage. It worked when closing out the program from using the main exit button (the one found in the top right corner), however each time I close all of the individual windows I have open in firefox originpc.com is forced back into the default home page once I relaunch the program. For the past two years I've used an adblocker as a lazy-man's solution to this problem, however now instead of a "this website blocked" screen, I'm back at originpc.com. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program, I have tried wiping my default settings for firefox multiple times, I have tried googling answers left and right but I have not found any semblance of a solution to this problem. I can't find anything in my computer's firefox files that has anything to do with Originpc. Is there anything that I can do? Or perhaps something that I am missing? Thank you for your time.

I'm trying to sign into/sync Firefox on a new phone. It keeps saying I need to get code from authenticator app. I don't have one! I try to scan IR code from computer, but it still requires a code. Sometimes it says it is sending a code to my email address. It does not. I ask it to resend code but it never does. I am logged into Firefox on my computer, is there a way to turn off the authenticator or otherwise solve this problem?

Hi All

I manage my cookies manually as I keep many tabs open permanently. Having to constantly log back in to those accounts would be onerous if cookies were deleted on close of browser. Managing this via manually adding the website exceptions function is also a drag.

Would it be possible to have a 'keep cookie list' that are saved when the browser is closed?

Cheers M

I had to use forgot my password for my firefox account and now the sync option doesnt work for importing my logins.

What are my options to import all my logins? still have them accessible on another computer but trying to get them over to my new one. Also have the .csv file but that doesn't seem to work either.

There must be a way to import after changing a password right?

Thanks, Dan

The setting "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is not saved. Every time I reopen Firefox the setting is unset again. Also my list of exceptions to this is not used, thus all the loging cookies that I had for the sites on the exception list are deleted and I have to re-login again.

Firefox all of a sudden redirects specific subdomain to https

Hello,

as the title suggest, all of a sudden, firefox redirects all requests to https for a certain subdomain (I haven't found any other domains yet, this one I'm checking daily and noticed this). Subdomain I'm referring to is hosting prometheus, alertmanager and grafana, all on different ports on same subdomain. Only grafana is configured to use TLS, prometheus and alertmanager was never configured and was using plain http.

All of a sudden, this morning, alertmanager and prometheus are being redirected to https. Their configuration was unchanged for months. When i open Developer Tools and visit the alertmanager or prometheus page, i get no HTTP status code (literally i get blank value under "Status", GET is trying to use https without any 302 or other redirect requests. Which gives me thinking - this redirection comes from firefox for some reason..

When opening same URLs under Private Browsing i get no issues, also , i get no issues when accessing the URLs from other browsers.

What might've happened for firefox to trigger this behavior , and how to fix it and prevent it from ever happening again.

Things I've tried: - Clear site preferences from History - network.stricttransportsecurity.preloadlist to false - browser.fixup.fallback-to-https to false - dom.security.https_first - was already false - I haven't installed any new extensions and I'm not using DuckDuckGo Extension - Enable DNS over HTTPS was already disabled

What i haven't tried: - Clearing entire history with cache and cookies. Seems like an overkill for something that should not've even happen and for something that previous options should already fix.

Please help me out.
