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!

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.

I know, this has been asked before, but either the answer did not help or the addons to solve the problem were removed. In ealier versions the popup for entering the masterpassword did popup when a site asked for a password. Now it pops up some seconds after the start, usually when I'm typing an URL or a search. How to change that? May I either set the seconds somewhere after which it pops up or set FF to not steal the focus if I am typing (which is a very bad behavior!) or change it back to only ask if a site requests a password? I'm frustrated enough to disable the masterpassword which can't be the solution. Thanks in advance

Opening FF today had error message about bookmarks and something (sorry cant remenber exact details) but had to shut down & restart which I did and now, whilst bookmarks are OK all my logins & passwords have gone. Opening the logins.json file shows nothing - it's empty. Checking the about:profiles shows the current one plus 2 others. One has logins but is from 2018 so most are wrong, (most of my currect logins have the firefox generated passwords) the other has none. Can I get them back?

I cannot find anything about this and was wondering if it indicates anything malicious. Anyone know about this? Thanks.
