A few days ago I started to get random popup ads. All of a sudden an ad will op up that says something like "you are at rusk, get Macafee" or "get Norton" etc. The ads pop up in the center of my screen and are about 20% the size of my screen. I have to click the x to get them to close. Sometimes there is the "don`t show me this again" option at the bottom left but even when I click ok the ads continue to pop up.

I`ve tried a few things but can`t figure it out. I`m retired and not a geek so it can get pretty frustrating pretty quick. I`ve lost my patience to scour through help articles looking for the exact sentence I need.

A step by step tutorial would be nice, thank you. I am using a laptop with windows 8.1. I use Firefox.

Thanks David

I did the test at https://test.amiunique.org/?consent=1 and as a result got this: 16 potentially detected lists (over 292) - These filter lists will be used to generate an unique identifier. -see attached screenshot

Also, if any website of your choice creates a unique identifer on me by using the filter list, as long as i use the exact same filters as another person, could it be that the uniqure identififer is the same for me and the other person or a group of many persons/devices using this exact filter list? I mean.. if my list is the same as someone else they will be identically which means it doesn't matter i am unique identifyed because after all im not unique but only in a list of devices using a specific filter?

And i must say that now, if you go to https://test.amiunique.org and do the test, then klick the shield icon, how pathethic is that amount of trackers, social media trackers, and even cryptominers!?!?

Any? I dont trust google when they call something save. Are there extensions or third party addons any sort of plugins, is there any other company on earth offering save-browsing?

I read multiple articles that claim google faces a lawsuit 5bn$ for tracking users while using privat/incognito mode. If thats true, which propably is how can i still use "google save browsing" without feeling as if someone is watching over my shoulder?

I made a few changes to about:config. How can i save the about:config settings for a new Firefox installation? My bet is this is possible either with distribution-policies.json or with a HTML. I used Kali Linux, this operating system comes with a pre-configured Firefox installation. For example it uses a permanent darkmode with duckduckgo even while cookies are denied. It also comes with customs about:config settings like disabled telemetry.

Those are all the setting i changed and i would like to find out a permanent way to import them to Firefox, right after installaing the Browser. It's time consuming changing each setting manually after each install...

I can't seem to disable the certificate verification on Mozilla Firefox. As you can see on the screenshot, the error code is SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER.

I tried multiple solutions, including :

- https://smallbusiness.chron.com/disable-firefox-rejecting-certificates-59249.html - The three solutions from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20088/is-there-a-way-to-make-firefox-ignore-invalid-ssl-certificates - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1234483 - All of the solutions from https://browserhow.com/how-to-fix-mozilla-firefox-ssl-certificate-error/ - https://itectec.com/superuser/how-to-make-firefox-ignore-all-ssl-certification-errors/

and so on.

Is there a way to disable this for only one website, or at least for all website ? I got a web interface which is self signed (if I understand everything correctly) where we can bypass the certificate "error" but it would be great if I just could configure Firefox to skip it entirely for this interface (as I'm certain it's not insecure and even if it was I'd still use it because I can't use anything else for now.

I know Chrome has a command line which do exactly what I want (--ignore-certificate-errors) but Firefox is a must go for me so I'd prefer to find an option on this browser.

Thank you for your time.

Hi, so I am a regular user of mozilla firefox on windows system. I did not notice when the problem started but firefox has been deleting my history everyday. I log in next day and there is no record of any previous history. I mostly browse on normal mode not the private, also the history settings are also checked not to clear browser history when firefox closes. Also I did not have a mozilla accoount previously before writing this question. Could it be the reason behind firefox deleting the history ? Would you please tell me what can be the issue and will I be able to resolve it on my own ? Thank you !

Hi Team,

I have set the proxy only at /etc/environment, but I do use proxy in only one specific user to run my azure cloud agent in order to use pipeline, however to be able to stablish the agent's connection to the azure's platform I "must" to open a firefox session and input manually the "Authentication Required - Mozilla Firefox" (The proxy moz-proxy), until that moment no problem at all. In a period of 60 minutes after I have rebooted the client my authentication is asked again, it looks like is a cycle, I really need to fix it. The great way is the authentication to remain such as autologin or something similar.

Could you please assist? I is impacting my project.

Thank you very much,

I had Amazon open while doing something and it accessed my location. I would like to block Amazon from doing this in the future, but I can't find a way to check which websites have this permission. I've tried going to Settings > Privacy & Security > Location Settings, but this only shows one website which has location permissions blocked.

Mozilla is now redirecting my Downloads to OneDrive, not my local hard-drive as intended

I am trying to get rid of OneDrive on my newly purchased Windows 11 Dell computer -- because it is a fact that Microsoft has no idea how to assure security of my stuff (see yesterday's zero-day vulnerabilities in Excel, eg). BUT when I go to Mozilla/Settings/Files/Downloads/ Save files to, Browse ..., and Select Folder 'Desktop' and then a folder I have newly created on my Desktop [called 'FFox downloads'], the name is changed to "C:\Users\[mynamedfolder]\OneDrive\Desktop\FFox downloads⁩". And it is NOT possible to edit the text in the 'Save files to' to remove the 'OneDrive' path within the Mozilla box. And there is no warning that the desired location has been altered to send it to Microsoft and the cloud, not the hard drive in my office.

Details: When I look via Start File Explorer, 'This PC' contains 'OS(C:)'. which is my Local Disk per Type--clearly hardware, not cloudland). However, within 'This PC' also exists 'Desktop', containing the folders I see on my monitor/desktop, including a new folder I created there, as one always could before, called 'FFox download' to try to use it to save downloads locally, ie without sending the actual download (and/or a copy of same) to the cloud. BUT, with Windows 11, a look at Properties admits its 'physical' location is actually 'C:\Users\[mynamefolder]\OneDrive\Desktop! Also, under OS (C:) exists Users, containing a [mynamefolder] name, with a OneDrive folder within it, and Desktop within that, my intended local FFox download folder within that. HA!! Obviously it is not Mozilla's fault that Microsoft is being sneaky. I suspect Microsoft is redirecting or copying everything on my Desktop, which in the past would exist only on my 'Local Disk', to cloudville. I have been unable so far to figure out how to fix this: do you by chance know, if so I would be most grateful. And I suspect others who wish to protect their information will, too.

Workaround: For now, I have created a new folder on OS (C:), called 'LocalDesktop', and within it a new folder, 'Localdownloads'. This seems to work, in that FFox will accept that as the place to send downloads.

ACTION ITEMS: I suggest Mozilla put a bold Warning that your FFox downloads in Windows 11 will no longer go to you alone, and certainly not insert the phrase 'OneDrive' into the 'Save files to' box when those words were NOT chosen via 'Browse...'.

[What I don't know, so far, is whether Microsoft is also copying the contents of this local folder to OneDrive, and I fear that if so there will be no warning given of this security breach.] Thank you, and thank you Mozilla for providing Firefox to the world, Rich

Good afternoon!

We need to add a "Saved Password Exception" to Firefox on several remote computers on our network (Non-Domain). We do not want to block the saving of all passwords, but want to specify a few websites to never ask or prompt to save.

I was hoping I could do this with Mozilla.cfg or Policies.json, and distribute it over the network to each PC. All I have found is a way of blocking all site password save-prompts with "signon.rememberSignons" in the Mozilla.cfg.

Any suggestions on how to set exceptions for specific sites with either using the Mozilla.cfg or Policies.json? Otherwise I may need to edit the firefox configuration manyally on each PC.

Suggestions?

Thanks everyone!

Unable to clear the Cached Web Content. In settings and security, I "Clear Data." I have the browser set to clear upon exit. I have gone into my control panel (windows 10) and also set my security to clear all upon exit from browser. I have rebooted my computer after clearing and resetting my preferences. I have used my Bitdefender to clean everything I could think of.

Please tell me how to clear out. I have never had this problem before.
