When i browse through the firefox history, it gives index index and then redirects to the page.

Firefox 68. A web site I visit daily always shows a popup asking me to accept cookies ("aceptar y continuar navegando"). It's annoying.

In options, I've selected "standard" for the cookie policy. I've emptied the cache, used the "forget this site" in the history for the web pages where the message pops up, and reloaded Firefox. It still prompts me.

Here's one of the pages it happens on: https://www.antena3.com/series/el-secreto-de-puente-viejo/avances/ Click "avances" or "momentos" and a large black box should pop up on the bottom of the screen, with the "aceptar y continuar navegando" in the lower right in a red rectangle.

Essentially, I want to tell the web site that I accept having cookies and have the web site remember my answer for the future.

Secure Connection Failed + SEC_ERROR_REUSED_ISSUER_AND_SERIAL when accessing google

It's been a while now since I randomly started getting the above problem. I've tried the solutions described here: https://cheapsslsecurity.com/blog/troubleshoot-secure-connection-failed-error-firefox/ I've stopped the Kaspersky Internet Security, I've installed and re-installed Firefox, I've tried editing/deleting the damn security ceritficates, mothing worked. And nothing of Firefox's help pages... helped either.

I'm using the latest Firefox, latest KIS version, all the drivers are up-to-date, system (Win 7 64-bit) runs perfectly with no error whatsoever, same for the Inetrnet connection. At this point I'm just about ready to flush Firefox down the drain because of this frustrating problem. It will probably go away after restarting the system, but I don't want to do this at Firefox's notice whenever it feels like it. I just want it to go away period.

Since it looks like it's impossible to attach a simple .jpeg to this message (file keeps loading forever), here's the full text of the error: "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.google.com. You have received an invalid certificate. Please contact the server administrator or email correspondent and give them the following information: Your certificate contains the same serial number as another certificate issued by the certificate authority. Please get a new certificate containing a unique serial number. Error code: SEC_ERROR_REUSED_ISSUER_AND_SERIAL The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

Side note: very funny having to confirm this question by checking my gmail address... which I can't access because of the reasons stated above.

even after UNCHECKING "Always Use Private Browsing Mode", fire fox refuses to remember my eBay password, and all other sites as well. in the security tab, the "Remember Passwords" is CHECKED so there should be no reason for not remembering passwords, it fills in my user id's but when double clicked (multiple times even), it still refuses to auto-fill passwords.

why?

Computer: Dell XPS420 Intel Core Duo 32 bit, Window 7 Sp1 -- Update 55.0 corrupted not only FF, erasing all 1800 bookmarks, but negated ability to save passwords. Also, the update corrupted any ability to navigate any website. FF, when loading 55.0 took near 20 minutes to finally come on line. After about an hour of frustration I restored my system using a recent restore point. This brought up a BLANK 54.0.1 version of FF. I manage to search out "old" FF data to recover most of the Bookmarks, but the "Remember logins for sites" check box cannot be activated. I am at a loss as to any further troubleshooting. HELP!

I've lost all my passwords. They were in my browser Firefox, but it logged out itself. And I didnt remember firefox password, as I have used it only once while creating. I did reset the password, and everything lost. It was registered on most secured mail (protonmail). Having firefox accound is useless, if everything you have will dissapear while password reset. It's not security, it is ill-conceived solution. All my accounts, all my photost now lost...

you were my brother firefox, I have been protecting you always :(

Please return me my accouns data.

I am trying to reach my cell phone provider for support, but I cannot get the 'Click her to chat' button to do anything?? Now I am going to be forced to call them for support, and that is a monotonous process that involves being put on hold for hours, or having to get a call back later in the day. The issue (attached) is that the page has a small red box in the middle of the screen that is used to start a support session when you click it, but clicking that box does nothing now. I KNOW this is a Firefox browser thing, and am personally getting sick to death of all of the useless, pointless security features added to this browser, that only seem designed to make it impossible to comfortably browse / use the internet. I am seriously getting ready to switch to a more user friendly browser, in order to be allowed to use the internet without Firefox constantly deciding what I am and am not allowed to do online, unless they can fix this!!

Often when I click a link within a web page, a message bar appears at the top of the page saying "Firefox has blocked this site from loading another page" or something similar. This happens frequently on banking or credit card sites. This is particularly annoying because it seems to disturb the operation of the link when I have to click the "Allow" box on the message bar. I would prefer to create a whitelist for this feature so it would not interrupt my banking operations. Failing that, I would like to know how to toggle the feature on and off. Failing that, I would like to know how to defeat the function.

The only browser I found that works is Internet Explorer Windows 8. I also only tested this cipher suite on IIS on a Windows 2012 server. I need to have this work in both android mobile and windows desktop browsers.

Every time I visit a site with a username and password (which is how most websites are setup now) - firefox asks to save the password. I never want to save a password so that is something I need to change since it is annoying.

I do want to keep the login/username remembered , but I do not want the password remembered nor do I want to be asked to remember it.

My firefox is updated to the lasted. I went to my Menu - Options - Security panel. The only things I have available to me there are, General, warn me when sites try to install addons, block reported attack sites, block reported web forgeries. Logins, remember logins for sites, use a master password.

I don't have any option there for passwords or anything to uncheck regarding asking me about passwords.

Does anyone know how to change this?


Thanks
