How to provide ownership information for a personal website

To get to the point; I would like to make myself available in order to supply the information needed to establish my own website from my own server. I don't want to be forced to buy the rights to my own intellectual property. When I make it known that I am interested in a specific web address for my own use this will be used to gouge my resources and just make me pay a fee for things I don't need. Mozilla says that my website is not secure but I have an SSL certificate and it even later admits that the information is encrypted. I'm not mad, I simply don't want to be bullied and wrangled into purchasing what I don't need. Nobody has the web address I currently have as my ServerName. The more I advertise it while I am working on it, the more likely I will be gouged or it will be stolen out from under me.

I've been working on computational engineering topics on my own for about a year and a half since I have been unemployed. I am interested in developing my own website, free and clear. I have gotten to the point that I can access what I have built on my local network. I run a Macbook Air and dual boot a tower with Ubuntu 22.04 and Windows 10. I built a website on Github but I want to run my own version on Apache from my Ubuntu OS. So far I have an Apache server running and I can access my website with the web address (httpS://www.example.com) I want from the Ubuntu tower. When I am on my Mac I have to type the IP address of the tower to access the site; the web address won't work. I can do the same thing from my iphone while in the house as well. I have created my own SSL certificate (though I am not a certificate authority). When I access the website on the tower with the web address, Mozilla bonks me with a security warning. It says that there is no ownership information, though when I made the SSL cert, I provided a lot of info. I have a legitimate company verified with the IRS (established Jan 2022). I have a paypal account for any financing I may need to do, though I don't want to support greedy ISPs that horde resources and spy on their clients. I can provide practically any info you may need and I appreciate any advice you can give to help me avoid paying through the nose for a pet project that will NEVER turn a profit, especially if it has any additional overhead. I was given the tower through a contract position and I want to use it to it max value.

All that being said, I appreciate a stranger listening to my problems and considering them for a thoughtful response. I understand you have a boss and you may need to say what you need to say. I will try my best to be respectful; though I am rarely respected.

Since the OS upgrade, any portal that I open (especially the ones that I have my user id and password saved) crashes. One crash report can be found at https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/7d671357-2d98-4bbc-b177-4029e0221221

I have tried disabling add-ons/ exensions, disabling auto-fill, downgrading security, reinstalling (even the ESR edition), deleting Firefox files from the library/application_support - but it doesn't simply work. Not sure if this is an OS issue.

Any ideas would really help. Getting the below info on the about:crashes each time:

Crash Reason EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS Crash Address 0x0000000000000018

Hello. I just created a master password to protect my website passwords. However, this master password is required to start a session with Firefox. My suggestion is that you do not require the master password to start a Firefox session, only to access the passwords information, or to create and remember a login password for a new website. It is a hassle to enter the master password every time I want to use Firefox. Or should I keep firefox open the entire day?

Firefox 100 and OWA Drag and Drop Problem

Hello,

Before the release of Firefox 99, the drag and drop function of e-mail using OWA (Microsoft Outlook) stopped working. In the last version of 99, it started working again (and I was very happy). My browser just updated to 100 and it stopped working again (and, of course, Firefox recommends not downgrading).

This is getting very frustrating, as I use Firefox at work and it is actually a lot of time wasted, going in and attaching files without drag and drop. I am on the verge of abandoning Firefox as my browser, since these features work in both Safari and Chrome. However, I do like the usability and security of Firefox, so I am hoping you can fix this very soon.

I have two profiles on one computer and I want to use these profiles in different languages for web pages (one in English and one in my native language). If I sign-in the two profiles using one common Firefox account, this seems to be impossible: a change of the language setting in one profile immediately reflects into the other profile. Is there a way to disable the sync of language? I want histories and bookmarks to be synced across the profiles and thus I want to use the same account. Thank you.

I often need to be able to use the arrow keys to navigate my screen, especially in order to find and click on browser links. However, in the latest version of Firefox on a new macOS Ventura machine, the arrow keys are interpreted by Firefox even though they shouldn't be; at the least corresponding box in "Settings" is unchecked.

How can toggle this behavior off?

Thank you, David Romano

When I connect to my home router via HTTPS I get a popup with the message “Invalid Encryption Key”. I tried using other installations of Firefox and I don't get this pop up. I then made a new Firefox profile on the same computer and did not get the popup. So it seemed like a Firefox "refresh" would be in order. But after the refresh the problem persists.

So how do I resolve this issue?

Firefox is the latest version running on a Mac.

I've been getting funny glyphs on my google engine searches. See png. Turning off add ons and reinstalling software doesn't seem to clear the issue.

The funny text when copied and pasted is revealed to be the actual text it was supposed to be.

This is very very weird... and its only on firefox, no issue for chrome or safari. Happened just a few days ago. Don't remember installing anything. Could be malfare from a font site?

For a class I'm taking I turned off the ad blocker. When I reset the privacy/security settings I may have also cleared the browser and or settings. Now I'm not receiving the subscriptions I've signed up for.

I've added the email addresses to my yahoo contacts and changed my passwords and I am still not receiving the subscription emails. Is the setting I need to change in Yahoo or Firefox? It's driving me nuts and no matter what I do (change login, settings on the sites) I am still not getting emails from my subscriptions.

Hi,

I have a web application which runs perfectly on firefox versions below 103. Meanwhile, I had to change my laptop and I installed latest firefox version on my new laptop. I have a login page in my web application which isn't working in the latest firefox version. But, the application works perfectly even now in the older versions below 103. What might be the reason?

Thanks in advance
