"delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" now gets checked against my will. i'm not checking it and have never had it set to do that. this is wasting tons of time for me, resetting my shortcuts and signing in to sites that are a pain in the ass to sign in to (specifically bandcamp). other settings get changed also, but not all of them, and my personal info remains. but a lot of time is also wasted correcting all the settings that have changed behind my back. this started happening within the past week. i've changed nothing.

it's not when i turn my computer off. i had to reset everything 2 days ago, but when i got home yesterday and turned my computer on it was working properly - settings intact. i used it for several hours, went to bed, turning the internet off, as i always do, and leaving pine player on. (it's not pine player causing the problem. i wasn't using it the other times) the computer never went into sleep mode, as per my settings... but after turning the internet back on this morning and opening firefox my settings are changed again.

any ideas? Thanks if you try to help

Is there a way to autofill for most sites but not autofill for certain sites while still saving passwords through firefox for those sites. I like to store my bank information on firefox behind an master password but it automatically autofills with out asking for the master password. Can I limit the sites that autofill passwords or require the master password in order to autofill? Any suggestions?

When in HTTPS-only mode and the "Query OCSP responder servers" settings is enabled, Firefox makes an http request on port 80 to ietf.org.

details:

  • HTTPS-only mode on, OCSP on:
  • go to http://ietf.org/
  • requests are made to:

ocsp.starfieldtech.com ietf.org ocsp.digicert.com

  • HTTPS-only mode on, OCSP on:
  • go to https://ietf.org/
  • requests are only made to:

ocsp.starfieldtech.com ocsp.digicert.com

why is this? (Firefox 103 on macOS 10.15)

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?
