Hello- Can someone please direct please direct me to an easy way to display images from a specific site? The site is a West Virginia state government records site that is not likely to be https compliant in the near future. I have cleared cache and I have uBlock Origin as my only extension. I only need to do this for the following site and after v. 92 the images no longer display.

www.wvculture.org

Here is a sample link to an image which does not display www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_view.aspx?Id=36270&Type=Marriage

Is there a way in Firefox to configure the passwords that it generates automatically?

Currently it seems to produce passwords that contain only letters, but half the time that is unacceptable to whichever site I'm on, so I have to tweak it.

I am using a plugin which does allow me to configure the password, and what I have found works most of the time is this:

At least one upper case character At least one lower case character At least one digit At least one special character, but not including these: |![]{}<> Length: 14

hello there i have the following problem the company i work for has unistalled remotely firefox from my laptop, and i do not have any way to re-install it back i have managed in some way to obtain a copy of portable firefox on the same laptop since i was not informed about this process, i have not saved my password externally and unfortunately, i was not using a firefox profile

in few words: i do not have my passwords anymore

i have seen that in such folder: C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

there are still saved three subfolders (one of them has the last modified date as 13th Sep, meaning today), therefore i think that my profile (and all relevant passwords) are still there somewhere

i would like to understand if and how i can import the passwords from the unistalled firefox in the portable firefox: i have already tried to copy those directories in: C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile

but no success, passwords are not importyed. please, i need help

thanks.

After upgrade to Fx 92.0, my ISP ip is shown as IP address when I visit ip.voidsec.com after every startup of Firefox! The socks5 proxy would work properly only after that page been refreshed several times. But if I change the value of network.trr.mode frome 3 to 2 or the value of network.proxy.socks_remote_dns from false to true, the socks5 proxy would work properly at once. It used to work well all the time on Firefox 91.0!

PS:Fx 90.0 also skips socks5 proxy sometimes while Fx 89.0 doesn't with the same settings. It can be easily reproduced. I think it's a bug.

The dialogue that pops up upon entering a password allows me to reject the idea of having it saved but not to make the option permanent. I basically don't store any security sensitive data on disk at all, not in clear nor encrypted. Could this be in prefs instead, the way that download options are?

I own a small business. We do have online accounts from suppliers, vendors to customers. I need to put employees in front of customer support for these online accounts. However, if an employee sits down to work on our accounts, he can clearly see the passwords for the log in information of our accounts.

Is there a way to lock the Firefox or any other browser (or any software or ANYTHING) out there that doesn't expose saved passwords? I don't know how to pass this security issue. The reason it's important is because if employee saves these passwords, he can obviously do bad things when he is not in the office.

Any help is greatly appreciated

I am unable to connect to the Nord VPN website or the Express VPN website because of a security issue with the Firefox Browser and I am unable to bypass the security and go to the site anyway. Here is what the message said: Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.nordvpn.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.nordvpn.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.
