This lockwise related feature requires one to enter a computer password/pin etc to be able to see saved login passwords. This is something I have always wished FF had (like every other browser does) but was always told that it is not necessary or is silly since it is not very secure or some other nonsense. But is is useful since it makes snooping difficult which is good enough.

Anyway, obviously FF has come around to this viewpoint... but after finding that without warning it is no longer functioning on my browser and resetting firefox and restarts and everything, I see on the page below "This feature will be disabled for both macOS and Windows in Firefox version 76 and 77. Mozilla is planning improvements to this feature in Firefox 78."

Bizarre since according to the article it starts working in version 76. Starts working in 76 but has been disabled in 76 (plus 77 for good measure).

What? My question is why was this disabled for what's likely to be a while and is there anyway to override it? Can I bring it back with a pref change? Thanks!

I am trying to help my daughter figure out a problem she has with Firefox on her Windows 10 laptop. She has the latest version of Firefox installed.

Every time she starts Firefox, it starts in a private window. Even after closing it and opening a "normal" window, the choice to open the tabs from the last session is dimmed. There is no history.

I have checked her privacy and security settings and it's at the default position. It is not set to open in a private window, and it is not set to forget history.

I am baffled!

When I am logged in to my financial account and try to go to my Balances page, Firefox blocks the redirect. I cannot find any way to stop this, so have to hit the Allow button every time. Seems like a strange place for Firefox to be blocking a page from loading, especially since I rarely get that behavior anywhere else.

Hi all,

I'm a MacOS (v.10.15.6) user, and I've been trying to get rid of the "Your browser is being managed by your organisation" on FireFox (v.80.0.1) without any success. This is the detail of the "Enterprise Policy" that's blocking: ExtensionSettings {"{443830f0-1fff-4f9a-aa1e-444bafbc7319}":{"installation_mode":"blocked"},"{02274e0c-d135-45f0-8a9c-32b35110e10d}":{"installation_mode":"blocked"}}

What I have tried: - I have uninstalled and deleted all Avast (& other antivirus related apps - I just kept "Clean my mac" but I suppose that's not the core of the issue?) (binned & through a ~/Library/ search) - I quit all apps that seemed suspicious in the Activity Monitor - I have unistalled the previous version of FireFox (& deleted all packages found on ~/Library/ and reinstalled all again

Note: the extension seems to be applied only on FireFox as my Chrome browser seems to be running normally so far.

I've restared my Mac every time I'd do something to make sure it'd sync somehow but nothing works. I still get teh same "Your browser is being managed by your organisation" on my latest FireFox version (v.80.0.1).

What can I do? Thanks a lot!

Greetings! Each and every time I close out Firefox, it deletes my pop-up approved exceptions list. There are two sites I visit regularly that use pop-up windows for displaying information, and if I add them to the exceptions list, they are gone (along with any others) the next time I open Firefox. This doesn't seem like the type of thing that should get deleted with clear history on close settings. It is happening with version 80.0.1, and happened with the prior version. Any thoughts on what might be causing this and/or solutions would be most appreciated.

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

Where Can I Compliment the Developers for Making Login to Sites 20x More Hassle on FireFox for Android?

Is there anyplace I can compliment the developers of FireFox v80 on Android for the ingenious upgrade to access of saved login data, that makes it impossible to copy/paste login information from the settings into a login form?

The old way, that was no good, made it possible to copy from saved login data to a login form when prefill does not happen due to subtle differences in domain names used on mobile devices vs. desktop devices. Before v80. the saved login data would be in one tab and the login form in another, so you could switch between the two, carrying the username and password in the clipboard for pasting into the form.

The new way, which is much better, makes that impossible, because the saved login data is not displayed within a tab, but instead is displayed in a four-layer-deep overlay, which blows away the login form on sites using javascript-driven popups for login forms.

The net effect is what used to be possible with a hassle now is impossible. I guess this new way is a bigger hassle, but the new way still is better, otherwise it would not be new, right?

Is there a way to communicate this directly to the developers?

FF 80.0.1

Not sure when it started, but it has been happening for a LONG, long time. I clear data (cache) with a check mark, but clear cookies manually. It always - and I mean *always* goes into *FF not responding* and takes up to a couple of minutes to clear. Often, I have to press clear Save Changes several times.

The only time it goes quickly and without stopping (Not Responding) is if I clear a dozen cookies or less.

Is there a solution?

Thank you.

Firefox continues to stymie my efforts to go to a linked page. It automatically says " Firefox has prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page". Heck, I asked for the link and do it all the time. Yet I can't figure out how to defeat this option.

Yes, I know I can take the extra step and just override it when it appears. But I'd like to think I can avoid having to do this all the time.

Thanks for any suggestions

  • Desired behavior: I can add my own trusted Certificate Authority next to all the others.
  • Actual behavior: After clicking “Import” and selecting the root CA's cert file, reloading the website it certifies still yields an Unknown Issuer error.

I am running Firefox 80.0 on Fedora Linux 32.

This certificate file works perfectly fine on another browser.

Since FF 78.0, we cannot access self-signed certificate sites due to HSTS

The issue described here does not affect version 77.0.1 and earlier, only 78.0 and later.

Update: Wrote an complete analysis on this as HSTS for human beings HSTS for human beings

So, we have a number of internal sites employing a self-signed certificate with a CN not matching the hostname. As an example of such devices are HP iLOs, switches and a series of others that are now completely inaccebile through Firefox.

Up until version 77.0.1, we were getting the usual notofication about the two issues (not trusted and cn is wrong) but we could Add an exception and proceed.

After updating to version 78.0, proceeding is not offered as an option, due to HSTS requirments.

hostname.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.

Troubleshooting done already; Completely deleted everything (FF and profiles and start clean - same issue Renamed SiteSecurityServiceState.txt so FF can create a new one - same issue Imported the certificate into Firefox as an exception manually as per images attached - same issue

At this point, there is no way to access those sites no matter what we have done and the issue persists up to the latest current version of the browser.

Just as a hint, the same issue appeared the same period of time (during the summer) on Chrome and Chromium Edge.

Do version 80 arrived and my passwords departed. So did all my open tabs. I’m more worried about the passwords. I don’t have avast or avg only windows defender. I tried going to a previous restore point but that didn’t work. I tried copying the old Firefox data files across and that didn’t work either.

Could really do with some help here as I have hundreds of logins.

Thanks, TeeKay

I am using Firefox on an old Ubuntu machine, and found myself unable to disable the auto update feature of Firefox. I understand why Firefox wants to do auto update, but for me personally it's negatively impacting my productivity. Many times I was looking up reference materials only to be told that I need to restart Firefox because it just updated itself. Imagine how frustrating it is, especially when I use the Private Browsing mode a lot to avoid having to clean up browsing history and cached files later. All in all, while the auto update feature might be good for some users, it's just not working for me, so I want it to be disabled.

I tried a couple of things. First, there's nothing in the "Preferences" page related to the auto update. Second, I tried to change the value of "app.update.auto" in the "about:config" page to false, and it still does auto update. Finally, I tried to add a "policies.json" file to "/etc/firefox/", with the following content:

{ "policies":

  {
    "AppAutoUpdate": false,
    "DisableAppUpdate": true,
    "DisableTelemetry": true
   }

}

Yet it still does auto updates. As a matter of fact, it updated itself to version 80 just now. This driving me crazy. Any useful suggestions will be sincerely appreciated.
