Замена главной страницы и поискового сервиса по умолчанию без предварительного уведомления и запроса согласия на изменения

Мной в очередной раз обнаружена замена главной страницы и поискового сервиса по умолчанию, сделанная без предварительного уведомления и запроса согласия на эти изменения. Изменения произошли после обновления браузера. Я возмущен и намерен не стесняться в выражениях своего возмущения. За каким хреном собачьим в свою пользу и какой кретин додумался мне навязывать в качестве главного иной поисковый сервис и иную главную страницу, чем те, которые были назначены мной и использовались до автоматического обновления браузера? Каким образом и почему вместо сделанного мной выбора в качестве поиска по умолчанию и в качестве домашней страницы установлен продукт Yandex LLC, который в той реализации, в какой он мне поставлен, по моему субъективному мнению является грязной помойкой новостей, нерелевантных моим интересам, без спроса шпионящим ресурсом, пропагандонским сервисом, трусливо замалчивающим главные с моей точки зрения события, но зато напичканный баннерами с третьесортной рекламой и такого же сорта новостями, заодно с кучей активных ссылок на bloatware, устанавливающихся точно таким же образом, как и этот поисковый по недоразумению сервис и эта ненужная мне домашняя страница браузера по умолчанию? Меня очень интересует, кто с больной головы на здоровую решил, что это можно делать, не спрашивая меня и моего разрешения, исходя даже из самых лучших побуждений облегчить мне задачу выбора поставщика информационных услуг? Кто, каким образом и на каком основании осуществил эту замену настроек? Повторю описание ситуации особо одаренным альтернативно. Устанавливая браузер, я выбрал язык английский и поисковый сервис Google. И он тоже не идеален, но это мой выбор. Я разберусь, чем мне пользоваться - не разработчики сервиса и ПО, не поставщики сервиса должны в этом разбираться и тем более что-то предпринимать слабо приспособленными для этого органами деятельности и даже не господь Б-г, а я. Спрашивается: на основании чего и каким образом поставка обновления браузера оказывается устроенной таким интересным способом, что я, однажды прекрасным утром открывая свой браузер, снова обнаруживаю абсолютно не устраивающие меня предварительные настройки обновленного программного продукта, которые не делал ни я, ни кто либо вместо меня со стороны пользовательского интерфейса? Это что - моль от соседей залетела и занесла? Это тараканы с помойки приползли и притащили инфекцию? Если в доме подметено, то почему бы однажды не отказать себе в привычке заходить, не переобувась в чистое. Тем более - в чужом доме. Почему бы однажды не перестать влезать без спросу, как это бывает в обыкновении определенной категории людей, и взять за хорошее правило ничего не менять в моих настройках приобретенной мной системы, включая настройки приложения, установленные мной, до получения такой просьбы и делать только по получении согласия на действия, после предварительного полного информирования о результатах тех действий, которые будут произведены? Как эта простота вмешательства стала возможной и как оградить себя от девиантного поведения? И третий раз. Кто, каким образом и на основании чего бесцеремонно навязывает мне то, что я не делал и не собирался делать? И, наконец, основной вопрос - как эти девиации исключить в дальнейшем, не затрачивая личное время на перенастройки того что уже один раз настроено мной по моему выбору, не тратя время на скандальные публикации, и не прибегая к отказу от Firefox?

How to delete "main" sites (like "youtube.com") from automatic suggestions in the address bar

When I type "you" in the address bar, Firefox autofills to "youtube.com". However, I would like it to autofill to "youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" instead.

In other cases, I can use shift+delete to remove suggestions so they no longer are offered; however, this does not appear to work for sites like youtube.com, as pressing shift+delete temporarily removes the suggestion but adding an additional "t" ("yout") causes it to autofill as "youtube.com" again.

Is there a way to delete these suggestion so the subdomain "youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" is automatically suggested when I start typing this?

Ok so I have an issue with loading web pages via SOCKS5 + VPN in Firefox

I tried disable all the plug-ins also changed **network.proxy.allow\_hijacking\_localhost** from false to true and also changed **network.proxy.socks\_remote\_dns** from false to true.

None of this options helped :( I spent all day to figure out what's the problem but with no result.

I have used instructions on how to set up SOCKS5 from here: https://5socks.net/Manual/browser\_en.html(https://5socks.net/Manual/browser_en.html) but every time I try to acces let's say [google.com](https://google.com) I get the message "Unable to connect" like there is no internet.

I beg you guys to help me out... I did a lot of research but didn't find any proper solution.

Thanks in advance! Hope everyone is healthy and happy!

Hi,

I'm unable to access my Firefox account as I can't seem to find my recovery code / I switched phones.

I understand that I can't get my old account back, no biggie - not bothered about the sync data.

I would however prefer to keep the email address, as I only have 1 email that I use. Creating a new one just for Firefox seems unnecessary.

Is there anyway I can have the existing account purged so I can re-create under the same email? I can easily prove ownership of the email account (loads of old emails from Firefox etc) The current password is even still stored in my password manager.

Thanks,

Today I found out that Firefox in 2 systems I have (one Windows and one on Ubuntu) the master password would not work! Although I tried my master pass correctly Firefox would not accept it. I had to reset master password and enter login to Firefox synch, remove my device from the list and resynch again to get all my saved logins!

Did the update to version 79 did something to master password?

Thanks

Hello, I decided to use your master password feature. I've written the password on paper for backup purpose. And everything worked fine for aprox. 1 month. But today to my surprise Firefox told me that master password is wrong. I've typed this password at least several times before (with success) so I was sure that I remember it correctly. Fortunately I had it on the paper. I checked it - and I realized, that I remembered it correctly. So I tried once again but I failed. I tried few times with the same result. I had the same password also for different site. So I logged on that site - with success. So my keyboard seems to work correctly. I didn't change master password in Firefox. At least I am not aware of that. It was unchanged for whole period I used this feature, as I wrote it wasn't long. Fortunately I have all important passwords saved on the paper so I decided to reset my Firefox Master password. It is possible that I've lost less important passwords but I can reset them because I still have access to my most important data. I do not need any help. And I am aware that I could made mistake of any type. But I decided to report that because there is also a chance that this is Firefox error so you should be aware of my case.

I have a Synology NAS which is set up for HTTPS using a certificate from LetsEncrypt (Synology's recommendation) However when I try to access the NAS via my Firefox browser (v79.0) Initially I get an error. The "i" in the URL box advises me "Connection not secure" However, when I press the "try again" button I can access the NAS as normal. Checking the padlock in the URL box it confirms it confirms I have already set an exception to this login. This happens every time I restart my Windows 10 pc. However, if I just close the browser and try again during the same session it connects straight away. It is not a showstopper but I would like to get to the bottom of it with your help... Why will it stop me on first attempt but always give me access when I press Try again?
