When I start a private window on FireFox, that same private window still has all the browsing history attached to my "normal" FireFox windows.

Ideally, I'd like to start Private Mode and have FireFox start from "zero": No access to past browsing data.

Is there a setting that allows for this?

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

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

What can you do about it?

www.google.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.


When clicking advanced button there is no way to proceed:

Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.google.com because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

Please help me! Last week, was the victim of a computer scam. I called the 888# pop-up on screen. Looked so real w/MS logo and MS defender logo. I stupidly gave my IP address, name, cellphone #, (which I reported to MS fraud division and the FBI). (I installed a VPN, after the fact.) I can't believe I was so taken in by this guy.

  I went to my bank in person and gave them my new email address.  I tried to log in to my online banking today. Message "Secure Connection Failed. You are not securely connection to this site.Your connection to this site is not private. Information you submit could be viewed by others (like passwords, messages, credit cards, etc.) "
Now, I'm terrified that this scammer has access to my computer.
I'm afraid to access my online banking. He may even have access to my other online accounts, such as my cable, retail stores, etc. where I changed my email addresses and passwords.
Even if I can get "securely connected" how do I know I'm safe from these guys who have my IP address?
 What can I do?  Can someone please help me? Or make a suggestion as to where I can go to resolve this (if possible?
 Thank you so much.

Hi there,

I would like the option "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" to be enabled, but it appears that Firefox is actively undoing this change. If I go into settings and check this box, it will appear to be successful and remain checked until that session is over, but if I close & restart, the box is always unchecked after restarting. Is this a bug in the build of Firefox I'm running (102), or is this behavior intended?

Thank you!

This worked before ver 100 and suddenly has stopped working with ver 100.

I even rebooted the computer (Win 10, 64-bit) and same behavior continues.

Hi, under Settings/Privacy/Cookies and Site Data/Manage data we can see site per site - how many cookies are currently existing - and how much storage

but I cannot understand what this "storage" includes. Let me explain : As soon as you open New York Times website (www.NYTimes.com), you can see there 12.4Mo of storage for nytimes.com. But if, thanks to Web Developer tools (Ctrl+Maj+I) I delete - all cookies relative to this website - and all cache storage - and all IndexedDB - and all Local Storage - and all Session storage and then close the tab opened on nytimes.com, and purge all cache, settings/manage data still says 10.6Mo for nytimes.com !!

This is obviously not only relative to nytimes.com, but most of the websites I browse have the same. I choose the example of nytimes.com to be very specific, and because it's a site anybody can browse, and the amount of "unknown storage" is very large.

What are these data, if they are not any of the above categories ? Where are they stored ? What are they useful to ?

Thanks in advance for your help !

I have two user accounts on my laptop. I recently changed the password for one account and I'm now locked out. All my data is in this account. I don't have any back-up keys etc. I have tried changing my Windows password, but this doesn't seem to work. Is there any way of finding my previous password, or re-setting my current one without losing my data?
