Mozilla has no true feedback page any more, so I chose to post here. I kept the "Allow Firefox to install and run studies" box unchecked since I began to use the Firefox browser (years ago). While I was researching a different issue, I found other users' posts about app.normandy. They all said that it allowed Mozilla to do what Mozilla promised not to do: run studies in violation of users' preference to opt out. Based on what I learned from those posts, I found where app.normandy was in my computer's about:config and toggled it to false. I want to thank those other users for their posts. Mozilla's explanation, also according to those posts, is that "Normandy is a collection of servers, workflows, and Firefox components that enables Mozilla to remote control Firefox clients in the wild based on precise criteria." Aside from whether or not Mozilla should be remote-controlling clients in this way, does it really consider all the diverse places in the world where its users live to be "in the wild?"

I'm gettin' worried about some privacy issues and I'm not sure if the behaviour I want in a browser exists on Firefox.

Right now I'm using Firefox, it remembers my session and the sites I'm logged in, doesn't remember history. I have my Firefox account connected, my bookmark toolbar open, and I use BitWarden to store my passwords.

When I sign-out of Firefox, it doesn't delete the bookmarks.

I actually stopped using the sync function because I thought it was secure to open my account on my phone, but when I log out of my account, all the bookmarks remain there, which kinda defeats the purpose.

Is there a way to have a sort of "nuke it" button?

I want to be able to store ALL my data (session, bookmarks, logins) behind ONE password, and have them disappear when I log out.

I'm just a regular user but I think it's weird that Firefox doesn't do this. It's as if my e-mails remained visible when I log out of my Outlook account.

I am having problems to export a certificate in Firefox 64.0.2. I can see the certificates but while trying to back them up, i am able to select file location, give a name and after that it generates a white rectangle but does not do anything and the certificate is not backed up. I know there are newer versions, but I need to secure that the certificates will not be gone. Any idea how to make it work?

According to various help articles, I should be able to export my logins and passwords using the Settings- logins and passwords and then click on the three dots in the upper right. That should display a menu with an option to export. In my case, when I click on the three dots I get only these options: Preferences, Help, Lockwise for Android, Lockwise for iPhone/iPad. There is no option to export anywhere on the page. How can I backup and logins so that I can load them on my new computer? As above, Firefox version is 72.0.2 and I am using Linux Mint 19.3.

I'm on firefox 90.0.1 on Mac OSX Big Sur 11.2.3. When I try to delete a site certificate that I have (that is about to expire), it appears deleted, but when I open the certificates page again it reappears. When I restart Firefox after deletion it reappears. When I delete cert9.db from my default profile after closing firefox, and then reopen, it still reappears. When I uninstall Firefox, delete the default profile folder from App Data and the Mozilla and Firefox folders from my caches, it still reappears (I also deleted the update folder).

I am doing sync between this mac, my phone, and another computer, but I ONLY have bookmarks, Add-ons, and history. Might the sync be also syncing my certificates?

Help/tips would be appreciated.

Hello. For searching with search engine I always use an advanced search providing options (never the address bar search engine suggestion of FF). Thus the engine suggestion, located on the 1st line of the drop-down list of suggestions, is just annoying due to its uselessness and its location before my helpful bookmarks and browsing history.

It's just a detail but the clearer the visual information are (without any interference, noise), the faster the right choice is made.

I tuned FF configuration as neatly as possible about this topic but the phenomenon persists. Privacy & security -> Address bar: 'Search engines' is unchecked. Search -> Search bar: 'Search bar in tool bar' is preferred to avoid it to operate in the type field (no option for no search at all).

           -> 'Provide search suggestions' is unchecked.
           -> 'Search Shortcuts' are unchecked for search engines.

Please see screen shots attached.

Could FF experts provide any help ? Regards. j-p

I really try to find an answer online but looks like nobody find this to be an issue. Of course i have my password vault locked with a master password. But remembered logins on websites like Google and Facebook are secured by cookie login. Which not require my master password. So when someone use my computer unsolicited, this person gets instant access to my GMail/Facebook.

So how to protect per-logged in pages without resetting cookie data? Because i liked to benefit from instant access to al those website so i don't have to login everywhere any moment i start Firefox.

I am no longer able to access the homepage of hollywoodreporter.com. As soon as I try it, a pop-up window titled "Manage Your Privacy" asks me to "Accept All", "Reject All" or "Manage Settings". (See attachment.) When I click "Accept All", nothing happens. When I click "Manage Settings", the pop-up window just turns grey and I can't do anything but close the tab and start over. Clicking "Reject All" only produces a warning, but does not close the pop-up either. I have cleared the browser cache and the cookies. I am using the latest version of Firefox. Any suggestions how this problem might be resolved are welcome. I can still access the homepage using other browsers, but I would prefer to do it with Firefox...
