I want to use containers more, and I've seen references on Mozilla information pages and news articles to assigning websites to always open in specific containers . Unfortunately, I can't find the feature in settings and container settings seem bare bones. Was this feature ever implemented or was it removed at some point? Is it coming back?

To Pop-up or Not to Pop-up

This box pops-up while the website's home page is loading.

FF is set to block: *all third-party cookies *tracking content in all windows *cryptominers *fingerprinters FF is also set to block pop-up windows - the website in question is NOT an exception, and so FF should be blocking pop-ups on this site.

I was using FF vs 82.0.2 before the pop-up started appearing a day or two ago. I upgraded to 83.0 hoping this would take care of the pop-up, but it didn't. I'm sure it returns with each new launch of the browser b/c I have FF set to clear out cookies, site data and history when it's closed. But it seems the pop-up block should step in despite those settings.

The site has apparently found a way to thwart the AdBlock feature that will block individual ads, as occasionally I've successfully used the "Block an ad on this page" feature to kill cookie use advisory banners. Could whatever this site has done to render AdBlock's "Block an ad on this page" useless...also be what's over-riding my pop-up settings? If that wouldn't be the case, how is this pop-up getting around my settings?

Or is it not a pop-up? If it's not a pop-up, what is it and is there a setting to get rid of it, or prevent it?

HTTPS-Only Mode breaks HTTP Automatic proxy configuration URLs without the ability to add an exception

If HTTPS-Only Mode is turned on and the Connection Settings has a HTTP URL for the Automatic proxy configuration URL, Firefox does not load the proxy configuration file and all sites that require a proxy will fail to load.

There does not appear to be a way to add an exception in this case. The example given at HTTPS-Only Mode in Firefox does not work because when the configuration URL is navigated to in the address bar, a download prompt appears and there is no lock icon shown.

I believe this is a serious bug in HTTPS-Only Mode because when someone turns it on, it will work because the proxy configuration is already loaded, but when Firefox restarts they will no longer receive their proxy configuration and will lose access to all sites that require a proxy.

i`m using https://github.com/sftblw/Webpage-Sidebar to open simple panel from my website. Before 83.0 there was an http-auth-prompt in popup, now it does not show. The same goes for "select mail program" since previous update.

Any ideas for workaround for this "new, shi(t|n)y features"?

how to disable enhanced tracking protection in Firefox on all site. global switch I don't want someone to make me happy, by force. profiling by websites and targeted advertising does not hurt. I remember in 2005, Firefox was a browser for advanced users. today it is assumed that the user is stupid

so you have to impose everything on him and not let him change anything beside colors . 

the leader in treating a user like a fool is google, that's why I came back to Firefox after four years. however, I can see that this is also a little such a policy and the solution is forced upon the user.

Hello, we have web application installed in internal network. We are using it for many years and we are installing upgrades and security updates (It is not public application so I can't give you the name). It have possibility to generate certificate request and import signed certificate so we are doing this for many years, with success. We have local Certificate Authority and of course, root and intermediate certificates are imported in FF cert store. After last App and FF update I'm receiving Security Warning (screen shots uploaded). This appears in several FF versions. Same app is 'secure' in Chrome and IE (screen shot from Chrome). How can I solve this problem?

Thanks in advance. Miodrag

Hello,

I have the following query. I have two certificates from infoNotary with which I am using for work. One private and one business certificate. In Firefox "privacy and security " options I have put the check to" ask me every time " which certificate to use when I am login into different pages that require it. When I log in a site for example the ministry of finance website, I am not getting the drop down menu to select which certificate I can use. This occurred after the latest firefox update. In order to use this options I am forced in Privacy and Security options -> cookies and site data to check the " delete cookies when firefox is closed." Only then when I restart Firefox I am getting the option to choose which certificate I want to use. This is an inconvenience for me, as whenever I log into a site I am pushed to agree and accept cookies and data. I want to be able to automatically accept cookies after the first acceptance and still be prompted to select which certificate I would like to use.

Every time I need to share my entire screen on Google Meet (or any other similar app) I'm always asked if I want to share a single window or full screen. But if I try to remember the decision to always share my full screen, Firefox tells me "Firefox can not allow permanent access to your screen". Is there a way to let Firefox allow me to remember the decision forever? Thanks

When trying to get to the help forum (which was 8 pages of clicking through the same links answering FF questions) I was presented with a form allowing me to update info and add more info to my FF account.

The possible button responses were :

   Do it now
   Do it later - and we will nag eeerrr   remind you to do this. 

What happened to the NO Don't bug me any more button? Mozilla have removed my ability to CHOOSE to NOT ADD INFORMATION I dont want to add.

Its a nasty web trend that Mozilla seem to have picked up on: Do now, or Do later ! No is not an option.

And if someone tells me that adding MORE information is for my own good - I'll probably point out I am old enough and savvy enough to know what is good for me - not FF, not an AI and not other people who don't know me.

I followed a web link to a Reddit page - looking for answers to a code question.

The screenshot - redacted - shows Google sticking a request up to see if I want to sign into reddit as a google account user. It shows my name, email address and alternative email address from other google account.

This means either Google have been fed info to allow them to know when I can be annoyed with them butting into my private browsing. or Reddit have connected me to my google account. Either way this is a breach of privacy - enacted while using Firefox.

It seems to be a new behavior but is one that is really annoying. I am not a reddit memeber nad have been there maybe twice before in the last 6 months.
