I selected the new HTTPS-Only mode in Firefox 83.0, and some URLs are being blocked, followed by the "Secure Connection Not Available" message. Yet, when I click "Continue to the HTTP site," the site URL is HTTPS, and the grey lock in the URL bar is in the fully secure position. Please let me know what this means, or whether this is a bug to be worked out. Thanks in advance.

Hello, I'm a person who has recently started using the calls on discord more frequently, which means that we like to screenshare the content we're browsing and we want to do that without pressure. It is completely fine when it comes to people I know IRL, they know my name, they know my last name, they know my email, I'm not worried when it comes to them, but, if I'm sharing Firefox, I always have to remember that I should stop sharing before clicking those three lines for the right side menu, before I accidentally show my email, which contains my real name.

Is there any option to protect me? To hide the email, or the entire option, or just for it to say something like "My account"?

If the feature does exist, please let me know! And if it doesn't, I'd like to have it for a future update.

Thanks in advance.

Since a few weeks only whenever you start browsing on any browser, a window opens asking you to agree or refuse the settings for tracking by cookies etc. Does this procedure annulate myown prefenrences settings?

Most of the people don't care about that and tired of being harrassed just agree to all trackings and cookies. But I don't want to be tracked and my preferences settings are all personnalised and quite strict on what I agree and what I don't agree.

So if firefox asks me to agree before I'm allowed to browse, and I agree to all of the tracking, does this annulate my privacy settings in the parametres?

Please give me an answer to [email]@gmail.com or call me +[phone number]

Or on this forum?

Seriously, Firefox, I don't think you could have made this more confusing if you tried. Why did you name the Facebook Container extension the same as the Multi-Container Facebook Container extension?

Basic questions 1. When you're in the Multi-Container Facebook Container are you supposed to open Facebook within that container to keep it contained there? Or are you supposed to open websites within Multi-Container Facebook Container that you want to protect from Facebook?

2. Does the Facebook Container extension work within all of the Multi-Container containers?

I recently installed the Firefox Multi Account Containers extension. I am wondering if tabs opened in "No Container" are in their own container. If I open youtube.com in a container called Google, it cannot read cookies from the Shopping container, or any other container, but can it read the cookies in "No Container"? I would like to use the "No Container" as my default container, but if information can be shared between "No Container" and other containers, then I'll have to recreate the Personal Container, and never use the "No Container" option.

I am using Developer Edition, 85.0b3 (64-bit) Windows (en-US). Up and until last version, 84.0x, I was able to access the network.security.esni.enabled setting, but now it's missing from about:config I have tried all three versions of 85.0 ( b1 b2 b3 ... so far ), and none of them have this setting. Manually adding the key has no effect.

I have also checked the [notes for 85.0beta] ,but couldn't find any note with regards to this change.

Is this a bug, or has this feature been removed, or moved to a different config page?

I am attempting to connect to my cable modem to change its password. The router is at 192.168.0.1

The modem does not support HTTPS connections. Even when I turn off HTTP Elevation in FireFox, turn off Microsoft Antivirus and Firewall, then type HTTP://192.168.0.1 FireFox changes the address to HTTPS://192.168.0.1

I can connect via HTTP://192.168.0.1 via my iPhone using Safari.

I have also added 192.168.0.1 with care to that it is HTTP: not HTTPS: address in FireFox to allow popups, and that this address is an exception.

I switched to a new Mac, I downloaded Kaspersky Internet Security and then I downloaded Firefox but when I want to get to any site I get this : www.youtube.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.". What shall I do ?

As a casual web developer I have a few sites that run on my Windows 10 system. Until today, when v84.0.1 was installed, I could access my installation of phymyadmin with http://pma. That is no longer possible. Even though History shows recent use of that URL, explicit entering of "http://pma" is converted to https and connection fails. Privacy & Security 'Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode' is already set. I see no reason why I need SSL for connections to my own system. Please advise.

I have Firefox 84.0.1 on Linux Mint, and I have filled in the information for one credit card. When I hover over credit card fields on retail site forms, I usually (but not always) get a pop-up "hint" showing the card number and/or expiration date ... but I cannot get the browser to actually fill in the form field. I've tried clicking, hitting Enter, hitting Tab, but nothing actually puts the information from the pop-up into the form field. Any hints as to what part of the incantation I am missing would be appreciated.
