When being prompt for the primary password, I noticed that I can rapidly and endlessly type random combinations and press enter. There seems to never be any delay between wrong entering of passwords. So it seems that even the most primitive application that would try all possible combinations rapidly, will break the password in few hours for the most. This does not even require any knowledge in hacking. Is this correct or am I missing something? If that is the case, then primary password is only worth when keeping the computer unattended for no more than few minutes.

When logging on to a website it used to be possible to show the current password that is automatically being input. That is no longer possible it seems so now you have to search the passwords for that website to locate it and then display it that way. But many times the current website is not saved under an obvious name. This makes it next to impossible to locate what used to be right in front of you (current website logon password). The worst is my current case where you lose your gmail password and try to locate it with a search of the passwords but since gmail address is the user name for 100's of websites there are 100's of results to try to find the gmail password. When it comes to Microsoft website there is zero results to Microsoft in the Firefox password search even though Firefox easily logs me in. Why did Firefox stop allowing the user to see the current password being input to websites. if they did not stop that access then I do not know how to do it anymore. Used to be a simple right click on the password field. Then you could go direct to the password manager location of that website.

"When a server requests your personal certificate" my preference is set to "Ask you every time" but Firefox is remembering the certificate I used last time for a site and does not allow me to select a different certificate. How can I change this please? My Firefox browser version is 84.0.2 (64 bit). Thanks

The great thing about DNS over HTTPS is that it's done at Application Layer. However, Firefox doesn't leverage this - producing a boilerplate response when DNS response failed.

I'm using NextDNS with P O R N category blocked, with https://dns.nextdns.io/XXXX as my TRR (and network.trr.mode is "3")

When NextDNS does its job and responds with Server failed, Firefox should be able to produce an informative response to the user, rather than "Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at P O R N .com." which is more about connectivity than DNS failure.

Feature Request: Firefox be more informative DoH DNS failures?

Stretch Feature Request: if network.trr.mode is "2", Firefox passively notifies user that preferred method failed.

Is it possible to have a default container? When I open a site in a container, if I then use the open window to go to a URL that I have not assigned a container to, i would like this new site to open in a "default" container. I believe the Facebook container works like this, it only allows Facebook related sites to be opened in that container any other sites are open in a new window/tab. An example, if i open a bank URL in a "Banking" container, log off and click on another unrelated bookmark (say Mozilla help), It would be nice if it opened in a separate container I had assigned to be the default container.

I'm trying to install and use a digital security certificate on my MacBook Air (2020). The OS is Big Sur 11.2.2

Currently, the certificate shows as installed, but I can't download a backup to install it on Thunderbird to use for digitally signing emails. The tutorial article from the digital certificate company seems to be for an older version of Firefox, or perhaps the Mac version is different enough that the steps don't line up. Either way, one of the steps is to "Enable FIPS" and I have not been able to do that. I can find the option to enable FIPS, but it is greyed out and I haven't been able to find any information on how to fix that.

Preferences/Privacy & Security / Security / Certificates / Security Devices

Clicking on the certificate itself in the Device Manager list shows the status as logged in and the options that are available on the right side are Log out, Change password, and Load, but Enable FIPS is grey.

I was very glad with SSB and use it a lot in my workflow but suddenly it stop working in the 86 version update. Now I know that it is no more supported and I started a dangerous practice of installing 85 version and omit updates (in fact this is not too useful because I accidentally update my firefox two times and have to manually reinstall the 85 version). I now this was an experiment but is a shame they stop supporting this kind of progress. My question is, is there an alternative to SSB currently implemented? Which is the closer form of such experience that can I get from command line? I mean: features like new window, no toolbars, independent (no open links in the tabs of previously opened window), could it be resources independence too? Thanks you beforehand.

This message is from a concerned life long Firefox user and a life long staunch Firefox advocate. I have resisted IE, Chrome, Safari and all the big tech browsers for well over a decade. Now, sadly, I had to dump Firefox and switch to a Brave clone.

It appears that Firefox has joined the cancel culture mob.... The censorhip cheerleaders.

If the filth in this article is indeed the company view, I cannot in good concience use firefox: https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2021/01/08/we-need-more-than-deplatforming/.

Dump Mitchell Baker. Retract the blog. Have her put it on her personal wordpress. Anything. Please. I want to use Firefox again, but with this sick world-view at the helm, I cannot support it.

The push notifications from allowed sites are enabled in the privacy and security settings, but the little box that's supposed to pop up isn't popping up. I depend on these quite a bit on YouTube, so I need them to work. Any ideas on what might be blocking them? If you could give me a list of things to try, I'd be very grateful. Thanks in advance!

After every AUTOMATIC update my bank has to text or call me with a verification code. Somehow, I've fixed this in the past, but after this last update I can't find an answer. Other browsers have no problem. Why is Firefox so damn complicated?
