Hi. Finally got round to asking this question.

How can I be certain the Pop-up for my Primary Password is from Firefox and NOT a 'fake', pop-up (or some such) displayed by a malicious web-site?

TIA Mike

Moin, I activated the HTTPS-only mode as I used the "https everywhere" plugin so far.

But, in a very special network segment for radio amateurs, the 44-network (ampr.org) encryption is not allowed. So is there a way to configure the HTTPS-only mode in a way to say ".... but not for 44.0.0.0/8?

i prefer one configuration than constantly clicking the "continue to http site" button for the next few years.

Thanks in advanced

This just started occurring on my PC when I use Firefox: why is the background of the address bar orange/yellow with diagonal stripes and there is a robot at the start of the web address? I'm concerned it may be a virus or the web browser is being remotely monitored.

Please refer to the attached image. Thank you,

Why do I get this message when I try to go to NBT Banks website: The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to nbtbank.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I only get this on my laptop, my desktop works fine. The settings on both browsers are set the same.

Every time I open Firefox it asks me for my master password. I have read a lot of forums but nothing has worked. I do not use sync or Windows 10 sync, I doubled checked to make sure they are both off. I have refreshed Firefox to default settings and used with no add ons. The only security software I use is Comodo and I have looked all over for any settings that will effect firefox's memory. Since Firefox won't keep a master password even in default mode I'm thinking its outside Firefox and the only thing that comes to mind is Comodo. I really don't want to remove Comodo and then have to set everything back up. I have quit Comodo but its the same thing.

thank you for any help, this has been driving me crazy!!

I am not able to join my universities online classes through Firefox. I thought it might be just an issue with the unis conference service, but I tried discord as well and it's the same problem. Stuff I have tried: look into the permissions options and resdet the permissions (didn't even ask me for pemission again), check if the "block new requests" is marked (never was), didn't help launching firefox in trobleshoot mode to see if it's one of the addons that is the root of my problem, but it didn't change anything.

The only thing that helped was to reset Firefox, but that only fixes it temorarily (about 3 days). After that it reverted back to not letting me join calls. Now I could keep resetting my broweser every three day, but that's a bit bothersome.

Since I started using Firefox many years ago I have allowed it to remember history and every couple of weeks have delated the oldest history pages. Recently Firefox history covers only today and this page disappears when I close Firefox. Firefox is set to remember history but the function seems to have gone. How can I resurrect it?

How do I remove the mixed content protection permanently and will it remove the banner that appears? I am sick of the banner that pops up at times that affects the browsing ability which is entirely annoying and how do I remove the shield and padlock from my fire fox entirely. I hate having to disable those as they interfere with the operation of my firefox and website that I have because not all the content on my website fails to load if the mixed content is disabiled. I'm tired of having this on my browser. I have to enable all my site features everytime I reload my browser. This is totally in the way.

I refreshed my firefox (as recommened ). I have now lost all my passwords and "restore previous history" .. I have managed to log in to Firefox but can't retrieve my passwords other than re-registering with my various accounts. How can I get back to my previous version of Firefox which was what I used for years with no problems.

Greetings...

As I visit specific websites and they attempt to install one or more cookies in my Firefox browser, I would like to be able to enable them for the then-current session only, so that they are automatically deleted when I close my Firefox browser.

While I could configure my Firefox browser to delete all cookies and site data when I close my Firefox browser, I do not want to delete all cookies, only those cookies that I have specificaly enabled for the then-current session only.

Is there any way that I can accomplish this in my Firefox browser? Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a way to do this based on my research to date.

Thank you for your attention!

The highlighted statements in the first screenshot are completely untrue. There is no option on the Lockwise menu allowing for the importation of logins & passwords from a file. I'm running v88.0.

You can see on the second screenshot what options are available and they do not include, "Import from a file."

There needs to be a way to import logins & passwords and extensions from an old version of Firefox or from a different computer, just as examples. I was very hopeful that you had reinstated that ability, but it's not true. Please fix this.

Also, not that it matters for this question, but the highlighted statement in the third screenshot is also untrue. There is no hamburger menu (three lines) on the Firefox screen. It's a down arrow.

I've been using a private Firefox window, but I notice Google keeps sending me YouTube videos and Pinterest suggestions based on obscure things I've only mentioned in a chat forum, while using this browser. And having to do with things mentioned in a text someone sent me. Neither I nor the texter have a Google phone. I don't have Chrome installed, so it's not like I had their browser open. Don't know how they're doing it. It's creeping me out. It cannot be coincidence.
