I occasionally visited this site https://referti-empoli.uslcentro.toscana.it/portalepaziente_user/user-login (it's a site managed by the local health authorities). I am reported that a safe connection cannot be established with the message PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. I am not shown any option to consider this site SAFE (no matter what, it's SAFE and I need to access it occasionally). I also use ESET anti-virus software. I can access through other browser, at least the show me it couldn't be safe but allow me to go on. I don't want to switch browser once in a while to navigate. I want to use Firefox in any case (or switch to another one that allows me to). How can I make it work (apart from deleting cache, temp files and history, which did not work)? Thank you.

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

in about:config page the options: browser.tabs.warnOnClose (true - default) browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs (true - default) browser.sessionstore.warnOnQuit (false - default) browser.warnOnQuit true (true - default)

But when i do Ctrl+q accidentally, it closes the only Firefox window i have. This window has many tabs open. Yes it restore next time, but i want FF to ask me before closing it.

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

Im having issues with my add ons/ Extensions not working. Only one shows in the top bar next to the URL area. Im unable to add any others despite having other Extensions such as Screenwise Meter, Topcashback, Honey. None of these are working though even though in the Manage Extensions area they are all enabled. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but still they do not work. Topcashback, Screenwise Meter and Honey all do not work when I try them out.

Any help to fix this would be great.

the situation: we publish an internal wiki website in our intranet. the delivering server provides a certificate issued by our own microsoft active directory pki (root-intermediate-servercert). firefox is configured by gpos in order to use windows cert store, where root and intermediate are installed. but nevertheless firefox drops an error message ssl_bad_cert_domain and i do not see why. in chrome or chromium based edge everything is fine. no ssl warnings. as you can see in the attached screenshot the cert includes various san fields for different host names, which includes two ip addresses (anonymized).

any advice what do to is mostly appreciated.

thanks a lot peter

I know that adobe has stopped support for flash. But what is the reason to also prohibit playing locally stored content? I see no security risk with old content e.g. from tutorials or learning courses. Disabling flash everywhere is making all this legacy content useless. And often there is not even a replacement available. Is there a solution to the problem?

I have an idea which should enhance security within Firefox, specifically to improve the security of Extensions.

It has become clear that many extensions are collecting and selling information about users to tracking and advertizing companies, without the user's knowledge or consent!

In response to learning about this, I started to disable the extensions which I did not need all the time and then "re-activate" them only when I needed to use them. Keeping the active Extensions strictly to essential security minded ones and a few other that I feel I NEED on a very regular basis - or all the time.

This is a bit of a drag and takes time each time I want to use certain extensions, but I now feel that it is necessary - until extensions are PREVENTED from collecting and selling user data!

Today I had an idea which would help and make this "Less of a Drag"!

When I "Disable" an extension, it's icon disaappears from my toolbar and only re-appears when "Re-activated". It would be better if when "Disabled" the Icon STAYED on the tool bar - but "Greyed Out", and with a right click menu with only two items on it - 1) "Re-Activate this extension" and 2) "Remove this extension". It would be useful also for when the extension is "Active" that the Icon has a right click item "Disable this Extension"! - Currently there is only the option to "Remove", which is not what I want to do!

This one relatively small change would allow users who are aware of the dangers, to control potentially "Leaky" but USEFUL extensions. The vast amount of time they would not be ABLE to track and collect users data, which would make what they collect when "Activated" much less useful!

This would be a useful and EFFECTIVE tool against "malware" extensions which are collecting and selling user data. It would be a useful "Stop-Gap" until you get around to actually PREVENTING extensions from doing this!!!!

Ideally extensions should be PREVENTED from having access to or selling any data and should ONLY have access to information that is specifically NEEDED for the functioning of the extension. VERY CLEARLY the very broad designations of the current "Permission" system do not work!!

I hope you take action on this, because it would CERTAINLY help!
