Hello.

Current Settings: Enhanced Tracking Protection-Standard Without the Free Adblock installed.

Goal: Minimize tracking and pop-up ads from appearing during my browser session:

Please answer each question separately:

Q1. Is the Standard option sufficient or should it be set to strict?

Answer:

Q2a. Does the Standard option OR the Strict option provide the features of an ad-block or does the free Adblock needs to be installed as well in order to receive full protection?

b. When I was about to install the Free Adblock, a warning came up asking me if it was the best adblocker and confirming that the extension would have permission to access my data from all websites, extend developer tools to access my data in open tabs, display notifications to me, access my browser tabs, and access browser activity during navigation/

Do I really want to install Adblock knowing all of the above details?

With this latest Firefox update I cannot find where/how to add certificate exemptions. In addition, every time I clear browsing history any certificate exemptions I have are also cleared.

1. What is the new method for adding certificate exemptions? 2. Is there a way to keep certificate exemptions when clearing browsing history?

Thanks!

Hello,

I have the current Firefox version (93.0) running on XUbuntu 20.04.03 LTS. Accidentally pasted the URL of a known phishing site (obtained from Phishtank) into the address bar instead of a VirusTotal search box, and it browsed to the site. Verified in https://transparencyreport.google.com/safe-browsing/search?url=https:%2F%2Fdocs.google.com%2Fforms%2Fd%2Fe%2F1FAIpQLSeAhelw8U_QuFyvJDmAn4aYM-H6QXYahD7ZjaFXC6CdyuxaNQ%2Fviewform%3Fusp%3Dsend_form&hl=en that the site is blacklisted.

I thought that Google Safebrowsing is enabled by default? (Checked about:config and saw that the "safebrowsing" settings that are bold are the ones with timestamps e.g. lastupdatetime and nextupdatetime.)

How do I make Firefox ignore the use-application-dns.net and always use my DNS server?

Hello!

I've set up an AdGuard Home server in my network. It provides the DNS-over-HTTPS service, I added it to my Firefox Network Settings configuration as https://adguard.example.com/dns-query and my machine has adguard.example.com in its /etc/hosts file.

The upstream AdGuard DNS server is my home router, which has several static DNS entries added for hosts in my network, e.g. foo.example.com pointing to 10.0.0.100.

During regular use, the domains resolve properly - when I navigate to http://foo.example.com everything works OK.

However when my machine is connected to VPN, the browser is unable to connect to http://foo.example.com, but it is still able to reach: http://10.0.0.100, regular internet as well as https://adguard.exaple.com (which is obtained from /etc/hosts).

This is on MacOS, using openconnect as a VPN client (and of course, the VPN connection changes the host DNS servers, this is what I'm trying to circumvent with Firefox' DoH feature).

I noticed one thing: with VPN, the use-application-dns.net resolves to something, without VPN it does not. I found this article, which mentions: "When any of these checks indicates a potential issue, Firefox will disable DoH for the remainder of the network session, unless the user has enabled the “DoH always” preference as mentioned above."

I have DoH explicitly enabled, the network.trr.mode is set to 2 (tried 3 as well, did not help). There's no such option as "DoH always" in the settings!

I had one profile on Firefox and it got deleted yesterday. It had so much data and private keys. I don't even see that profile in profile folder path. I made a new profile today and there were many tabs opened on that profile. When i search for a webpage already opened on that deleted profile it gives me a reference to it as attached is there any way i can regain access to the same? PFA picture. The encircled shows that this tab is on sdraj (my old profile) followed by desktop name.

FIREFOX 93 PRIVACY - When using INCOGNITO mode Firefox displays recently closed tabs?!?

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

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
