I take my privacy very seriously and have disabled a large number of Firefox features which erode my privacy, including geo.enabled, dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled, dom.battery.enabled, and many more.

Today I've just found a setting I've never noticed before which makes me really nervous: geo.provider.ms-windows-location

Can anyone please tell me what this does? Is it new? Why doesn't Mozilla have a page/resource explaining what all the preferences do and how to use them?

I was just using YouTube, clicked some button, and a pop-up video appeared that I could drag anywhere on the screen, even outside the browser window. It took me a while to realize that it's actually a pop-up window with no border, no file menu, no address bar! just a floating video with no border at all! Very creepy!

What is going on here? How can this be possible? Why is Firefox allowing this? Surely if sites are allowed to make windows pop up without borders, it represents a huge security risk? They could pretend to be anything - a message from Firefox, a Windows error message, anything at all. I am so concerned about this! I presume this is a new feature of Firefox and it needs to be stopped immediately!

Lately, Firefox seems to be giving more and more control over to web developers, and taking away more of the users' rights and security. It is worrying and I don't like where things are going. Why can't Firefox just concentrate on being a great browser instead of allowing developers to do new things?

I use the dropdown in the search bar on Firefox (called "Awesome Bar," I think?). However, there are search engines which are clearly pinned. For example, @amazon or "Search with Amazon" or "Search with Google."

How can I delete them?

I have searched through this issue in the Community, and the solutions there are not available to me. I cannot "Hold" the item, and press delete. I cannot "right-click" on the item. I cannot highlight the choice and delete, either through right-clicking or hitting the delete key.

Please advise. I want the other choices to be available.

Thanks.

I use 2 or 3 websites (in the UK) regularly which allows me to check local stock of items I want to buy and then collect. I use Page info and change the Allow Location / Permissions to do this. Every time I restart FF or re start my Mac or FF does an update these chosen settings are lost and reverts to default. How can I make this setting a permanent thing, it's a bit irritating not to be able to Save this preference. (FF v78.0.2esr / Mac 10.11.6)

Certificate Error SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

Background -- I have a Synology Disk Station. When setting it up, in order to make a secure connection I registered the Domain I planned to use with Synology and received a registered Domain Name. I then applied for and received a certificate from “Lets Encrypt. It worked fine for a few years. I was able to login to the Disk Station Locally using the Local Network IP I had assigned to it, and also able log in via the registered Domain through Synology with a Secure Connection using either method when logging in. Everything worked perfectly. Over a year ago I had some issues with my network (it has been too long ago for me to remember what it was). I could not resolve it, so when I called Netgear Tech Support they had me reset my router to factory settings. This did fix the issue I was having, but I later noticed resetting had changed my IP address. I thought this was not a problem at the time. It was then I also noticed I was no longer getting a Secure Connection on through my Disk Station. Have been trying to resolve this on my own, but I am not having any luck. But I am learning as I go. Present Day – I am still having issues logging in. The message I get when I log into the Synology registered Domain with Firefox is "Unable to Connect". I tried Chrome and get a similar message. When I log in locally using the assigned IP address I get "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead".

I click on the "Advanced" button where Firefox displays the Error Message:  SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN.  I continue with the exception and able to log into the Disk Station. 

My Goal is to get it working with a secure connection as it did before the Router Reset. -- I have checked all the appropriate ports are open. 5000 and 5001. -- Have checked for any firewall restrictions. -- I have tried replacing the previous certificate with a new one. -- Synology Tech Support does not seem to know, so I figure the problem lies within Windows 10 or Firefox. -- The Certificate in my Windows mmc Console says the Certificate is OK. Weather that is the one that is used for this connection I am speaking of, I do not know. -- The Certificate is current and has not expired. My apologies for this description being lengthy, I just want to make sure I state everything I can think of in order to get this fixed. I do not know a lot about this topic, but am learning as I go. Any help is very much appreciated.

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

One of my Windows 10 PCs running Firefox is not remembering my setting privacy.resistFingerprinting=false. After each restart if reverts to privacy.resistFingerprinting=true.

Has anyone experienced and solved this problem previously? Which config file is this setting stored in outside of FF?

Firefox is on latest release (v79) but this has been persistant across previous releases as well. Thanks

Hi,

I cannot find the way to remove the Adblock Plus extension for the life of me. It says "Can't be removed". I re-started in Safe-Mode, and it still cannot be removed. I did Firefox's "fresh re-install" thing, which is supposed to remove all extensions, and it's still there. Should I report the extension? Help.

Thanks

I've been a Mozilla/Firefox user for a long while. Every few months an updated version or additional features are added. At the same time other companies have offered features which seem to me to be worthwhile addition/protections. I now have Facebook Container, AdBlock Plus, Ghostery, Enhancer for YouTube, Safer Search, Ad Observer, HTTPS Everywhere and Track Me Not running. Considering what Mozilla/Firefox provide as part of their platform, do I need any of these? Are they redundant at best or dangerous at worse? At 73, it's easy to believe.

Thanks for any advice. It is most appreciated.
