I ran into some problems recently as I usually clear out everything that was saved in my internet folder. I go to Tools/Options/Privacy/Security/Clear Data, well, this is about a week, but an INSISTENT 267 bits are REFUSING to go and be let free from my cached web content.

Additionally, I usually run an RKILL scan, a JRT scan, and a Malwarebytes AdwCleaner scan when I've finished logging off, for security reasons. The JRT scan flagged a "staged folder" in my FF profile, and had removed it. The folder had some sort of code in it.

Um, while we're at it, is FF still using IE as a "gateway"? I know at one time it was, but I seem to be also harangued by Searchscopes.

could someone help me out, please.

I'm using FF 76.01 and windows 10.

Thanks so much in advance,

MM.

P.S. also got a report that one of my blog tabs had been breached, with an ad from Avast - is this common?

Hello,

Firefox 76.0.1 is causing me problems...

For example if I call a PHP program to log out, I use the JavaScript command:

function Logout() {

 self.location = "Root.php?LogOff=Y"

}

No problem there, but when I want to log back in I use:

<form name='detail' method='Post' onsubmit='Root.php'> <input type='text' name='UserId' class='Full' style='border: 0;'> <input type='Password' name='Password' class='Full'>

(The class Full, just sets the width to 100% as this is in a table)

The the JavaScript is simply:

function LogIn() {

 document.detail.submit();

}

Seems simple enough, but the Root.PHP receives:

 LogOff -> Y
 UserId -> <name>
 Password -> <password>

Not what I was expecting!

The only other thing of note is that I have started using local.storage to save information, and this too passes information from previous calls.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Richard Gamester

Invalid Connection after bypassing warning

Today I went to a website I've gone to for years, but I got a security warning this time. I used the bypass but I get an Invalid Connection message.

Here's what it says.

A secure connection to archiveofourown.org cannot be established. Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. Site: archiveofourown.org Certificate CN: Certificate Authority: COMODO RSA Domain Validation Secure Server CA Certificate Validity: Not Before: Jan 5 00:00:00 2018 GMT Not After: Jan 4 23:59:59 2021 GMT

Then it says begin certificate and lists a bunch of characters.

I tried on Edge and Chrome and got the same message. I contacted other users of the site but they are not having any problems. I cleared my cashe and cookies. I restarted my computer, but it is still not working.

I would like any help/advice you can give me. I really miss this website.

Thank you,

Heather
