So for extra security, I recently tried tweaking the about:config as suggested here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Privacy/Privacy_Task_Force/firefox_about_config_privacy_tweeks.

Everything turned out ok, except the automatic zoom level memory function for each web page switched off. How do I switch it back on?

Many thanks!

I just added the "Word Count" add-on. I am supposed to be able to select text on any site, right click and a notification will let me know the word count of the text.

Here is my problem: When I select text and right click, I see "Word Count" it as an option, but I don't get a notification when I click on it.

So far I have:

-disabled and enabled the add-on. -gone to the notification settings. I only see an option to add a website--no option to make an exception for an add-on. -restarted firefox and am using the latest version.

Also: I don't have any other add-ons.

Can you help me? Thanks!

I need to be able to temporarily disable my ad blocker: I keep getting popups saying that an ad blocker has prevented me from accessing a certain site, or that it's interfering with a site's fraud protection settings. I'm running Windows 10 and Windows Security, and also MalwareBytes...but neither of them appear to contain an ad blocker. Is it Firefox?

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.

Still trying to figure out what is wrong after refresh of Firefox.

I cannot get my handful of preferred websites to remain logged in when closing and reopening Firefox.

I have FF set to clear cookies and data on closing, but this handful of sites are listed as exceptions.

After reopen FF, the relevant cookies are not sticking. This used to work better.

I redownloaded FF and no improvement.

I'm thinking conflicting settings or....?

I remember from past rodeos that I need to know the precise name of the cookies. But now when I check which cookies are added when I login, I can only see them grouped by the main website title--nytimes.com and I see that they have added 7 cookies. But I cannot see individual cookies.

How can I see the cookies to copy their addresses for the 'exceptions' table for data management to allow the right ones to be retained; OR just tell FF to allow my 3 preferred sites to stay 'always' logged in when I reopen FF?

Firefox Browser uprated to 92.0 today. Previously whilst browsing Ad's were showing; today I have no Ad's displayed but have not enabled an Ad Blocker on Firefox. A site I use extensively cannot now be properly viewed; I get a message to turn off Ad Blocker. I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to 'Off' but am still unable to obtain full functionality, I am using standard Firefox Privacy settings otherwise. I am able to browse the site properly using MS Edge. I have deliberately refrained from using any AD Blocking on my part so as to ensure the site in question can be properly viewed. The only Firefox extension being used is Kaspersky Protection; I get the turn off Ad Blocker message both when Kaspersky Protection is on or off.

Hi!

I want to dump/debug http traffic with mitm proxy: https://github.com/ganskef/LittleProxy-mitm . This proxy generates it's own root certificate which i manually imported to Firefox from about:preferences#privacy > View Certificates > Authorities > Import. I verified that cert shows up after importing it. But I get errors despite of that:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.youtube.com. Peer’s certificate has an invalid signature.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE

Is there a way to bypass it?
