Cannot add a custom certificate to avoid warnings

Hi! :-)

I am hosting a website with SSL access in a local network using a custom certificate. This naturally results in "This Connection is Untrusted" warnings etc., and I can "Add permanent exception". But I need to avoid the warnings altogether and have Firefox fully trust the certificate. The reason being that I need to make full use of PWA features like "Add to home screen" popups etc., and it seems these dont work with security exceptions.

So, trying to add this certificate (certificate generation commands can be found @ https://android.stackexchange.com/a/70123/223946), in Android, I selected Settings "Security" -> "Install from storage" and put it inside the "Trusted credentials". (Also see screenshot – taken from https://cheapsslsecurity.com/blog/install-ssl-certificate-on-android/) It is now successfully listed under "USER".

But nothing changed. Firefox mobile (tried both version 68 and Preview/Fenix) still does not trust the website, even after reboot. In v68, I even toggled about:config security.enterprise_roots.enabled back and forth without success. I also tried to import a self-signed root CA instead and sign the webserver certificate with it, but there are still warnings. All I am seeing right now is SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER. But it shouldnt be unknown?

Thanks so much. Phil

Hi,

I have Firefox on both my tablet (Samsung S6 - Android 10, Firefox 68.10.1) and on my computer (Windows 10 - Firefox (78.0.2). The sync on my tablet isn't working. I noticed that some bookmarks that I had added on my tablet aren't showing up on my pc (previously everything was working fine). I looked at my tablet and it says that it was last synced 3 days ago. I did try to restart and then manually sync but that didn't help. I checked to make sure that both the Firefox on my tablet and on my pc are up to date and they are. Any ideas? Thanks!

I like to read articles in Wikipedia, I could spend hours doing it, but every time I click on a link and then go back to the previous page, the site reloads wherever it feels like and not in the same place that I opened the link. That is very annoying because I've to scroll and re read to see where I was the link that I opened to continue reading. A few years ago I used Chrome and tried Firefox and Wikipedia worked fine so I kept using Firefox.

Is there a way to fix this issue?

I have problem with saved passwords on my new synced smartphone (other devices also smatphones do not have that problem). When I open page on which I saved password, FF do not prompt me a login and password. So I go and try to open about:logins to find my password. But spinner is constantly spinning around. Nothing happens for long time. I tried to kill FF app or reboot smartphone but this didn't help. This problem is occasionally. Sometime saved passwords works sometimes not. I did not find any dependence. Smartphone is Samsung Galaxy S20+ with Android 10.

To post this question I also have problems with logging to FF account. When I try to login when this problem with password occurs I've got error during login that I must allow cookies. Wich is strange because I checked and there was allowed cookies. When password problem didn't occur I have successfully logged in.

Hi.

Maybe I havent yet got used to the new tabs, and with time it will be fine, but currently my experience is rather annoying. Yeah, sorry, it sounds silly to use "annoying" as an argument, ...but:

# Ideological issues:

  • Why would you completely change from conventional UI at all, without even any pros in the new solution!? E.g., the only reason why most text editing tools share the same interface over decades is the fact that "most text editing tools share this interface". Thus it is apriory intuitive to use. Some people may use something like Vim, ...but then thay install Vim. And you wount appreciate to get your favorite Notepad turning into something like Vim (you will be simply annoyed due to broken ituition (lets ignore here the pros of Vim)).
  • If I remember correctly, in previous versions tabs were hidden (unless you scroll upwards), so most of the time thay didn't block the view ...so what is the reason/purpose of moving them away from the top pannel to begin with? ...here I must mention that I use it on tablet (and I dont have a smartphone to check it out there), and I can believe that it is easier to navigate in the new vertical layout compared to the horisontal one (if people prefer to hold the phone in vertical orientation; I dont know, seriously). But still, why wouldnt you just accomplishe old interface with that small square button to open the new tabs interface, rather than replacing it completely?
  • What is the point of Collections? ...they are Bookmarks?

# Real issue:

  • When I open tabs being on the, e.g., second page counting from the end(or top in that vertical layout), and I scroll upward to find the next tab (I have to scroll since the topmost visible tab in that layout is the current tab) the whole widget (the box with the list of tabs) gets collapsed by half (so that the top of the widget is at the middle of the screen). It seems like another silly complain, but when you need to switch between a few latest tabs often, you'll be ready to smash you device with the wall. Note: maybe you need to open many tabs to reproduce it.

I love Firefox, and Im not going to switch from it in any case. I just hope to help you in this strange way (...also it is not the most efficient one).

Best Regards, Ivan

I got updated to the new Firefox for Android on my 10" tablet, and it seems the old tab bar I had in the "tablet experience" variant of the old interface is gone. And it seems there's no way to get it back? The help page on tab management makes no mention of it, only talking about the phone interface "tab tray". Is there really no way to get the traditional tab bar on a tablet with the new Firefox for Android?

Whenever I try to play a GDrive video in desktop mode, the video player doesn't show more control options as they show in desktop or in other browsers if desktop mode is enabled. I'm sending screenshot of a GDrive video in Firefox desktop mode and Opera desktop mode to help you understand the problem better. You will see that opera desktop mode has more video player options as if it's true desktop mode but same isn't the case with firefox as it doesn't show options to control speed of video or change resolution.
