Hello

I am continuing to fail logging in to my Netspend.com account. I am logging in with the correct Username and Password recognized by NetSpend. I have removed the cache. I have investigated if cookies relative to this NetSpend address are blocked. None are. NetSpend support shows no error with my account, on their computers. And, they have no control of cookies.

Would you suggest what I can modify to be successful in logging into my account in NetSpend.com from my Desktop computer ?

NetSpend technical support suggested not to SAVE my Password or Username, having Firefox as my operating browser, proposing Firefox will revert to a former password, unseen by me; thereby not allowing me entry into my NetSpend account.

                   Respectfully
                      Michael

Firefox has my credit card information and it shows up in a window when I go to pay for something, but when I click on the credit card I want to pay with, it won't autofill. In Settings, the box to autofill is checked. This has worked a hundred times before, but stopped working a few months ago. Also, I've checked the 2 relevant items in about:config an they are enabled. How do I get the autofill to start working again?

I was surprised today to visit a site and notice the "permissions" icon appear at the left of the address bar, showing me that cross-site cookies were allowed for this site. I have Enhanced Tracking Protection set to "Strict", so obviously this was a worrying thing to happen.

Looking into it a bit further, it seems Firefox provides a backdoor for cross-site cookies: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/third-party-trackers?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#w_managing-cross-site-cookies

  • "While cross-site cookies from trackers are blocked in Firefox by default, a site may signal to the browser that it needs to use them for important functionality. In this case, Firefox will allow a third-party website to use cross-site cookies the first five times (or up to 1% of the number of unique sites you visit in a session, whichever is larger) without prompting you. After that, Firefox will prompt you to block these cookies. Without your consent, Firefox blocks these cookies from that point because a site requesting access that many times may be a tracker."

This is most definitely not what I want!

I want every cross-site cookie to be blocked by default, unless and until I explicitly approve it. Is there an about:config preference I can set to achieve this?

I use Firefox on multiple devices with synch. I don't want Firefox to ask to save logins, never ever anywhere. :) On my laptop, the option is greyed out and checked, i.e. set to ask to save passwords. So this settings syncs to the other PC's. When running about:config and looking at the option there, it is set to true and also here set to true without possibility to change.

Clues? :)

I use Mendeley Reference manager in Firefox. It used to work OK. Now I get a message "Firefox blocks extensions running on PDF files". This is just what Mendeley does. How do I get Firefox to allow this to happen again?

Folks -

I am working with an internal development web site that uses self signed certificates for https / ssl.

Previously when browsing to this site, FF would present me with a web page that said "Warning: Potential Security Threat Ahead", but then also present an "Advanced" button on this page that would allow me to choose to ignore the cert error and proceed to the site anyways.

Recently, I now no longer have the option to proceed to the site anyways. I might have upgraded my DD during that time. We've also generated new certs recently. FF now just shows an "Unable to Connect" error message and there is no "Advanced" button or option to bypass the cert error and proceed to the site. This is on Firefox 91.12.0esr.

FWIW, both Chrome and IE still present me with options to bypass the cert error and proceed to the site.

Possibly FF will allow you to bypass an invalid CA, but not an invalid CN ?

Dear community,

I understand that tracking of third-party cookies is now FireFox' default. However, I put my FireFox privacy options to "strict" and opened the website tui.com. What I see in the web developer tools is that several cookies are set, which are not tui.com itself (please see screenshot). The first might be exlainable since it is a subdomain (?), but why are the second and third set? However, when clicking on the data protection icon in form of a shield next to the "ssl-lock" I see a lot of ther third party cookies are prevent. Why arent the second and third in the screenshot?

Thank you very much for your time!

Felix

But still that shortcut still remain.

I would really appreciate help with this.

"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
