Hi all, I am currently getting a warning message as shown, this website is one only accessible from the local network here and so this error message can be ignored. However i was wondering if there is a way for me to disable the warning message as if clicked on will take us out of this window and we want to stay in this window.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I work for the Center for Internet Security (CIS) and my team develops the CIS Benchmarks for securely configuring a wide variety of technologies. Specifically, we make a Firefox Benchmark with recommendation on how to more securely configure Firefox. We would like to get some "Firefox People" involved in helping us update this Benchmark. Some power users and/or some Mozilla folks would be wonderful.

All contributors are listed in the resulting document and the resulting pdfs are freely available on our public website ([CIS Website] https://www.cisecurity.org/cis-benchmarks).

If you are interested please reply and let me know how to contact you.

Revision: 115.9.1esr (64-Bit) for openSUSE Leap (15.5)

Some months ago, I unfortunately typed a password in the username field of a local page (access to my Internet box, oh Noes).

Since then, it appears each time I remove the access data in the Firefox settings. When entering data again for a login without password enquiry, the password becomes invisible again, and vice-versa.

It is impossible to show the phenomenon using a screenshot, as the password immediately disappears.

I have been dealing with https://www.mynylottery.org/portal/ for weeks trying to get their software to recognize my location, required to place subscriptions on their site. I have switched off every safety and restriction in settings to open the computer to their search for my location. I finally got them on the phone and they told me that for a reason they don't understand, Firefox is the only browser that is currently giving them problems. It refuses to allow them to pinpoint location of the connecting computer either via wi-fi or ethernet connection. Please provide some guidance and if necessary, contact the NYS lottery to solve the problem.

I have tried all the suggestion in the FAQ section. I must not be understanding. I normally use Edge and it easily store my information so I don't have to input it every time. However, Firefox does not store it at all. The FAQ say after you type your password you get a save or not save message. I do not get it. No where does it allow me to store anything. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox to make sure I have the latest. But same results. Any suggestion on what or how to store my data. I do not see the screens the FAQ shows. How can I save my data. I want to get rid of edge.

After updating server libraries, tinymce popup windows are disconnected from their parent

This one really caught me by surprise! I have an internal Django database system. Staff typically use Firefox or Chrome to access it from Linux or Windows machines. As part of this system, it uses Grappelli library which in turn uses TinyMCE V3.5.8. Specifically, in a text box TinyMCE provides advanced editing and fonting. Allows the user to embed links or images. This system was working fine on Django 2.2. My provider (Python Anywhere) retired the server image I was running on, so I updated everything to Django 4.2 on their latest "haggis" system image. Everything seemed to transfer over without any errors - at first. In fact, it was a week later somebody tried to change a font colour by clicking the popup button that opens a colour picker. That pop up looks blank! (its not, the HTML is there but without the custom CSS nothing is visible)

In developer mode on Firefox or Chrome I can see what the problem is: The popup is disconnected from the parent. The parents CSS and classes - specifically tinyMCE - is not present. So its missing the styling and JS to operate. One of the first things the popup JS does is copy in the tinyMCE and tinymce classes from the parent. But they are not there, in fact .opener is null and .parent is stripped down.

What is really weird is on my test server, where I tested everything before updating the live server, it works! The test server uses Django's "runserver" to run a very simple (unsecure) http server just to test code. Whereas the live server is locked on HTTPS.

What confuses me is I don't see any console log messages that would indicate the browser decided to "protect" me. How can I figure out what is going on? Or disable this feature for a test?

I am writing this on my Dev machine using the browser I test with, so I shall try to paste in tech info below.

Just to reiterate, in this browser I can have my test server in one tab, my live server in another tab, test server popup works; live server popup does not.

Thanks in Advance, Richard

Recently I had to refresh Windows 11 on my Dell desktop. It defaulted to McAfee antivirus. I uninstalled McAfee and reinstalled Norton 360 which I had before. I reinstalled Firefox. I have version 123.0.1. I imported my FF bookmarks after exporting them from another computer. Now, FF remembers my IDs but not my passwords. When I log in to a website, FF offers to save my password and when I click yes it pops up a bubble saying "Password saved!" However, next time I go to that website, although it remembers my ID, it does not recall my (supposedly saved) password. In this support site, I see most users with this problem say FF will not remember either their IDs or passwords, whereas FF remembers my IDs, so my problem may be different. In FF help, I see that another password manager could be keeping FF from saving passwords. To the best of my knowledge I have never used another password manager. What is keeping FF from saving my passwords, while remembering my IDs? Is there a Windows Registry setting or a FF About:Configuration setting I need to change? Is re-installing FF a last ditch option?

Integration from password managers are being blocked by Firefox because Mozilla believes something is critical to protect when trying to access their servers ( account.firefox.com )

Why?

Additionally, there is a work around, with removing ALL entries for the extensions.webextensions.restrictedDomains config flag. But why does Mozilla think they are so important that extensions shouldn't use them?

It doesn't matter if I add www.youtube.com site to hosts file in Linux and delete cache, Firefox just doesn't block it, bypassing my meassures to prevent me to get hooked up here. It was blocking everything as expected some weeks ago. I also tried redirecting to different IP's and it didn't work.

After some checks, I noticed:

  • It happens only with www.youtube.com, it doesn't happen with youtube.com (without www)
  • Other common pages like other Google pages, Facebook, TikTok or Instagram, get succesfuly blocked by hosts file as expected
  • I have tested creating new profiles with about:profiles, but the issue continues
  • The issue started after Firefox Developer Edition version 125.0b1 as you may notice in the images attached.
  • I also tested with the latest nigthly version and the issue continues.
  • DNS over HTTP (DOH) doesn't seems to be the problem since it seems that my network doesn't met the requirements to enable it, and if I manually make sure it's disabled, the issue still continues.
  • Chromium browser blocks www.youtube.com as expected, so that indicates my PC might be correctly configured
