Firefox Browser uprated to 92.0 today. Previously whilst browsing Ad's were showing; today I have no Ad's displayed but have not enabled an Ad Blocker on Firefox. A site I use extensively cannot now be properly viewed; I get a message to turn off Ad Blocker. I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to 'Off' but am still unable to obtain full functionality, I am using standard Firefox Privacy settings otherwise. I am able to browse the site properly using MS Edge. I have deliberately refrained from using any AD Blocking on my part so as to ensure the site in question can be properly viewed. The only Firefox extension being used is Kaspersky Protection; I get the turn off Ad Blocker message both when Kaspersky Protection is on or off.

I've used Firefox as my default browser for years. I'm now on a Win10 laptop I've been using for over a year. I have not knowingly made any recent changes to FF. I'm on FF version 88.0.1 (64 bit).

Suddenly, yesterday, I found that I was blocked from viewing many YT videos and comments. YT says I am in restricted mode. It is not due to a setting on my YT/Google account, because I'm not logged in.

Exact YT messages: "Video unavailable--This video is restricted. Please check the Google Workspace administrator and/or the network administrator restrictions." And "Restricted Mode has hidden comments for this video."

However, I have no problem viewing them in Chrome. So logically it's a FF problem.

Also, I discovered that other sites are affected. For example, if I run a "domain lookup" on the ICANN website, I get less detailed results than if I run the search on Chrome! https://lookup.icann.org/

Switching from Strict to Standard Tracking Protection didn't help. Then I did a FF refresh but that also didn't help.

Suggestions? Be aware I'm not a coder or any kind of super techhie.

Hi all.

Trying to be safer on the web I use the Https- Only Mode all windows, though some trusted web sites I will allow to be exempted.

One is the Australian weather bureau website which recently stopped being a Https site. (www.bom.gov.au)

I have entered the following addresses into exemptions *Image 1 attached

http://bom.gov.au http://www.bom.gov.au https://bom.gov.au https://www.bom.gov.au

However on opening a new tab in a private window ... and type "bom.gov.au" *image 2 attached.

I'm taken to an error page (http://www.bom.gov.au/akamai/https-redirect.html) saying that the web site no longer is Https. (I tried entering that full address in exemptions but only shortens it back to bom.gov.au)

Interesting the tab still shows the little padlock that indicates the tab is still requesting Https Only Mode?

If I turn that to Off, I proceed to the site and then if I look into the Exemptions the following has been added to my list *image 3 attached.

http://www.bom.gov.au^privateBrowsingid=1 set to "Off Temporary"

(I tried deleting that full address line and re-entering it to set it to "Turn Off" but its fails)

Is there a permanent workaround ???

I am suffering from the same issue posted on AskDifferent and since there is no answer there, I thought to paste the question here.

I have installed Firefox (version 90.0.2) on macOS version 11.5.1. In the Camera and Microphone panes under the Privacy tab in Security & Privacy settings, Firefox is missing.

I tried this answer and this, then opened Firefox and navigated to a website that prompted for using the cam and mic.

Yet, when I approved it on Firefox, the Mac privacy dialog did not pop.

How can I give permissions to Firefox for microphone and camera to be able to use them in Firefox? (should it be by modifying the privacy database?) Is this a Firefox bug? Right now, it forces me to use other internet browsers :(

(my System Integrity Protection status is enabled)

Since updating to Firefox 93.0, I notice that downloads from certain sites are being blocked, because they are using a basic HTTP connection, requiring me to explicitly allow each download. I understand that this is a new "feature," as explained here: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2021/10/05/firefox-93-protects-against-insecure-downloads/, however, I in no way desire this behavior. It is an asinine nuisance, and if I cannot disable it, I will have no choice but to revert to an early version of Firefox. My question, then is this: is it possible to disable this check, and simply allow all downloads? If so, how can I do that?

Twice ! now, with the two most recent updates to Firefox my privacy settings have been erased. Specifically "Exceptions - Cookies and Site Data". This is most annoying as I need to rebuild the list each time.

How can I preserve these "Exceptions - Cookies and Site Data" across updates? Or, is this a bug? Or, is this considered a feature?

Thank you

Hi,

I found some discussion related (https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/disable-add-ons-on-specific-website/33693) but no solution yet.

This is imho a big flaw in the privacy of users.

There are trivial cases, for example if I use a YouTube downloader plugin, I obviously want it to monitor my browsing ONLY when I'm on youtube.com...

And there are some critical cases: when I browse my web banking, or when I go on some trading website, I don't want my financial operations to be at risk because of an add-on that is very useful everywhere but on those site.

However, I don't want to exclude all the add-ons for those website too, that would be just too much.

I think there's already a coding base in place, since you can disable each add-on when using private windows. This could be enhanced by having a system of whitelist/blacklist instead. And this feature would actually make more sense than using a private window.

Another way would be to have this feature on per container, instead of per website, than would work well too.

People have different activities, and some requires useful plugins, that are very specific. I mean Keepass's add-on (for example) is useful everywhere, but many add-ons are related to one activity at a time.

For example, if I'm a marketer and want to analyze website, I'll use add-ons for having stats on metadata or keywords or even real time reports from Alexa or from AliExpress, etc...

But when I'm reading my email, I'm not happy those add-ons can see my data.

That would be tedious to disable all those plugins every time I change activity, especially since we are productive humans so obviously we need to alternate those activities doing multitask all the time.

And the private window option is not flexible enough for that kind of multitasking, when containers are.

I hope this helps everyone understand clearly why I think my request is not only a real user need, but also currently a flaw in users privacy since most people will not trade the comfort of their add-ons for some privacy concern they don't always understand...

I know this is some kind of feature request more than ask for help, but https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/FirefoxInput/ is out of service so I don't know where to address my concern here.

Thanks for helping me pushing this idea forward.

Hi there! So, I wanted to ask, does resetting my Firefox Account password remove my browsing history, bookmarks, cookies, etc?

If it does, I cannot make a recovery key, since I do not know my password. If it doesn't, then I will reset it.

Thanks and see you later!

Hello, Is there a way on Firefox Browser to permanently delete a URL from my History and have it not record future searches for that URL?

Example: I delete URL on History. I search for that URL again. I look back in my History and find that URL not recorded in the History. In other words, no matter how many times I use that URL, it will not pop in my History ever, that being a selective, automatic URL deletion from the web History for all future searches of that URL.

Thanks, Austin Reynolds

This is not Privacy even if not stored on disk. This should be turned off or at least add a on off option in preferences to give users a choice. Someone could see this list on a screen when open. If you do this then why not have a tab that also shows Recent History also and keep it in Memory?

I think this is a valid Privacy concern, am sure there is some way to snapshot it from a forensic program as it is stored in memory.

Anyone else have concerns or thoughts??

       Thank you
