I don't understand when I've been on a public bus site for instance, to work out a map plan, now it blocks me from using a certain application on the site when i've been on this same transit site many times. Do I have to allow the site to be opened in the set up? This is when I could use the map the most but considerable time now's lost my getting to the place i would have liked to go in the short time given but i trusted hitting this site's bus schedules and now it's denying based on insecure connection (?)

Since the latest Firefox update I am no longer able to use a particular website that I use quite frequently. Having tried it in another browser (Chrome), which directs to http (not https), there is no problem. Firefox will not work and I use Firefox as my default browser and would prefer to keep it that way.

thank you

I am using a video conferencing site called "whereby.com". It works as expected for everything but screen sharing.

When attempting to share my screen, Firefox asks me if I'd like to allow "whereby.com" to see my screen (see attached screenshot). When clicking "Allow", I see the message in the second attached screenshot.

Firefox version - 73.0.1 Mac OS version - 10.15.3

The same error message appears regardless which of the options I select in the window where Firefox asks which window or screen to share.

Whereby doesn't have any info on this, and no search I've run has turned up anything that might give more info on the cause of, or possible solution to, the error saying screensharing could not start. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Let me know if there's anything more I need to share to help troubleshoot this.

Thanks, Dan

The ssl certificate on my side did expire but it was renewed a few days later. It's been over a month since it was renewed but I still have Firefox users reporting the error message.

This Connection is Untrusted Techinical Details: eng.fanpageengine.com uses an invalid security certificate. The cerificate expired on 1/31/2013 3:59pm.

This is a link to a 3rd party site that verifies the ssl certificate is current. http://www.networking4all.com/en/support/tools/site+check/report/?fqdn=https%3A%2F%2Feng.fanpageengine.com&protocol=https

I just need the steps they'll need to make Firefix update its record.

Additional information. This doesn't effect everyone visiting my website using Firefox. It seems to only effect people who visited the site while the ssl certificate was expired. However clearing the cache and cookies has no effect.

Thanks for the help.

Firefox will display a lock icon with red strike-through red strikethrough icon in the address bar when a login page you’re viewing does not have a secure connection. This is to inform you that if you enter your password it could be stolen by eavesdroppers and attackers. Firefox then blocks access to the site. I don't care that Firefox has a problem. I want to go to the site no matter what Firefox thinks aboutthe site. That is why I typed in the address. Will Firefox demand I download Internet Explorer and that I delete Firefox?

I want to use my web cam on a certain website. I click on the little information button in the browser window and get sent to Permissions. I click the drop down for camera and get to the "Settings - Camera Permissions" page, where I cannot specify the website to grant permission for the cam to work on the site. I tried to upload a screen shot of that page, but it was unable to upload.

I created a self-signed CA cert using openssl, and imported it into Firefox, but when I select it in the Certificate Manager under “Your Certificates” and click “View…”, I see the message “Could not verify this certificate because the issuer is not trusted.”

https://www.dropbox.com/s/i38v78802ym9fug/Screenshot%202014-04-15%2010.49.14.png

When I visit the site that I set up with an SSL cert signed by that same self-signed CA cert, I get an untrusted connection warning with the following technical details: “staging.cakemade.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is not trusted. (Error code: sec_error_untrusted_issuer)”

https://www.dropbox.com/s/rvq00r0pdn99rd6/Screenshot%202014-04-15%2010.57.54.png

When I view the site certificate, it correctly identifies the issuer as the CA cert that I imported, but also displays the message “Could not verify this certificate because the issuer is not trusted.”

https://www.dropbox.com/s/b3no5pdhf9ddx5h/Screenshot%202014-04-15%2010.57.29.png

I am using Firefox Aurora, and apply updates daily. I am using the default settings for OCSP.

What do I need to do to get Firefox to trust the CA cert that I imported?

For the last few days, every time I click on a Google Image I get the message:

Redirect Notice

The previous page is sending you to <the page I wanted to go to>
If you do not want to visit that page, you can return to the previous page.

This is fantastically annoying and appears to be limited to Firefox. Chrome doesn't do it, and I run both with a similar set of add-ons. I've seen suggestions to set accessibility.blockautorefresh to false in about:config. It is already set to false.

My bank's site continually indicates that it does not recognize my computer and forces me through 2- and 3-step authentication before it allows me to log in. I complained and was told to add their site to my browser's Trusted Site List. I could not find such a list in Firefox version 70.0 (64 bit). Where do I enter the bank's URL so that I can simply log in? Thanks.

Clicking a button within a webpage puts a blinking text cursor in the body of the site, as if editing a Word document. It's not causing any other problems besides being really annoying and distracting, but it only just started today. I've tried restarting Firefox with add-ons disabled, as well as reinstalling Firefox clean.
