Under EXCEPTIONS I had to ALLOW certain websites. Then I decided to experiment and see what ALLOWED for SESSION really does.

Neither the entries for websites I allowed for a session were deleted from the list of exceptions, nor the cookies saved by these websites were deleted even when I closed the browser.

I do not see the difference in terms of what happens between selecting Allow vs. Allow for session.

Could someone who knows please explain or point me to the place that explains the difference and how this works?

Thanks.

When i click on the lock icon in the address bar, nothing happens (I would expect to see the encryption and certificate, but no widget opens). When I right-click into the page and select "View Page Info", "Security", "View Certificate", no certificate exists. Only generic info is shown (Servers+Authorities). Also an error is reported in the system log, confirming that no certificate exists: JavaScript error: chrome://browser/content/browser-siteIdentity.js, line 642: TypeError: issuerCert is undefined

Questions:

  • Why does Firefox show the lock icon while no certificate exists?
  • How does Firefox establish a secure connection without having a certificate? (From my understanding a certificate is needed for TLS to work.)

Version used: Firefox 78.12.0esr ('Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0'), no add-ons or plugins.

PUP.Optional.DefaultSearch is Malwarebytes’ detection name for a family of browser hijackers targeting Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

How can i hide my display/screen resolution from websites? I use Firefox in windowed mode not with my default screen size but websites know my default resolution. This can be used to identify my pc. I dont want that for privacy reasons like tracking and adverstising. How can i prevent this? I found many threads/posts about this in various forums/websites. They are talking about Tor Browser and that websites can identify you if using full-screen mode. But as i said, im using Firefox not Tor and while im using windowed-mode websites still know my default resoltion. I tested this on https://whoer.net/

Another question, how can i restore the default window size in Firefox?

Yesterday I went to my history to locate a prior site I had visited. There was only 1 site in history, which of course surprised me, and it was to CapitalOne.com/link accounts. This is my credit card company. I removed Firefox from my Macbook and then re-downloaded Firefox and installed. Nothing has changed. My settings are correct, meaning that I should be able to have sites visited in history, yet only the one site populates, and I've been to a lot of sites today....the credit card/link accounts site is the only site that is in history. You can imagine how nervous I am right now about doing anything on line. I sure hope that someone will help out here.

I recently installed my OS and backup the entire profile folder of Firefox. When I put the key4 and logins file in to the fresh install there was only one password in it, the remaining passwords were gone. I also noticed that a new file (logins.json.corrupt) is created along with file(logins.json). I tried to paste the files again to fix it but same issue. I think the files are corrupt. Is there any way to fix it?

Cookies for websites setup for ALLOW (replacement for post that "disappeared")

As captured in the long thread "What's the difference between ALLOW and ALLOW for a SESSION?”, with a lot of handholding from jscher2000, I managed to set custom choices for privacy and security the way I wanted on my mac computer (blocking all cookies in all windows, with exceptions saved for ALLOW, ALLOW for SESSION and some for BLOCK). To accomplish this, required enabling deletion of cookies when Firefox closes.

My assumption based on information I got in the above mentioned thread, was that even when deletion of cookies is checked for when Firefox is closed, cookies for websites identified as exceptions with ALLOWED, are not deleted.

However, this is not what happens. A specific example is tripcheck.com, which stores custom itineraries for cameras in cookies. I setup quite a few of these custom itineraries and saved them and they were OK until I closed Firefox, when they were deleted, as the cookie was deleted. This website is setup as ALLOW in the Exceptions list.

As explained in the above mentioned thread:

"(2) Scenario Two

[X] Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed (checked)

Firefox shortens cookie expiration to session only unless the site has an ALLOW permission in the exceptions list. “.

I am more confused than ever, the settings do not appear to be working the way they are meant to work, not only for session cookies but also for what should be "permanent".

Am I doing something incorrectly or am I misunderstanding how setting should work?

If cookies of websites setup for ALLOW are deleted when Firefox is closed, the setting is defeating what I am trying to accomplish: saving cookies for websites that I use and save data in cookies (such as recognizing the computer, what’s needed for 2 step authentication, etc.).

Thanks.

I have configured FF to block all cookies under "Browser Privacy" the custom setting allows "Choose which trackers and scripts to block. and I selected "all cookies". Knowing that all cookies will be blocked I logged into office 365 and allowed manually cookies through "view page info" I then selected "set cookies" to allow expecting full access to office 365 mail, but this did not occur. What happened is I logged into office 365 and could see the icons and my login name but could not read the mail.

Office 365 gave the message "we couldn't sign you in please try again" yet I could see my log in name and the office 365 icons for mail, calendar etc.. just not the actual data. If I allow cookies in Browser privacy (which i take it allows cookies always) it woks.

I bring this up because it seems like something is missing in cookies that is not represented in FF.What is the difference between browser privacy cookies and allowing it through view page permissions? Can anyone offer an explanation?

Currently on Firefox Version 85.0 (64-bit) using with Windows 10 Pro

Until recently (before Firefox updated versions) my cookies, cache and history, were automatically deleted on exit from Firefox with no problem. Now I can not delete them for some reason. Even when I try manually to "Clear Data" and also manually clear all History (all sub-menus checked to be cleared). When I restart and open an online newsletter, normally I have to sign in. I don NOT have passwords checked to be saved in FF options and never did. But now with the new version it just auto signs me into that website. I do NOT want my passwords saved/remembered, nor any of my other info, etc! It is really annoying and not secure if FF is now saving information we don't want it to! What is going on here? How do I resolve and get back the way I had it before the update? Please advise. Thanks in advance!

NOTE: I don't want to start from scratch by clearing out Firefox totally or messing with my profile. I have too much customization to start over from scratch. (That would be like asking somebody to reinstall Windows entirely when something minor goes haywire!)

So, I accidentally clicked a link that takes me to a site I have never logged into. Firefox prompts me with 3 userids. One is more or less a throwaway, but two are for sites I want to be secure.

I have disabled the form history in options. I have selected each item and tried either delete or shift-delete. None of these options work.

The site continues to present me with 3 userid options.

I hope this is not a major security threat since I am the only user on this computer and the site is one I have never visited, but it worries me nonetheless that I cannot remove the Firefox suggestions.

I have a staging site for my website which is protected (not visible to the public) and requires authentication with the username and password to be accessed.

Firefox is blocking access with the authorisation window coming up empty again and again and again when I enter the credentials.

So - I have to use a different browser just to access this one site.

I have cleared the cookies and cache, removed the site from the browsing history - Firefox is still blocking the access.

how can I unblock it?

I use Windows 64 bits on my PC.

hello there i have the following problem the company i work for has unistalled remotely firefox from my laptop, and i do not have any way to re-install it back i have managed in some way to obtain a copy of portable firefox on the same laptop since i was not informed about this process, i have not saved my password externally and unfortunately, i was not using a firefox profile

in few words: i do not have my passwords anymore

i have seen that in such folder: C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

there are still saved three subfolders (one of them has the last modified date as 13th Sep, meaning today), therefore i think that my profile (and all relevant passwords) are still there somewhere

i would like to understand if and how i can import the passwords from the unistalled firefox in the portable firefox: i have already tried to copy those directories in: C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile

but no success, passwords are not importyed. please, i need help

thanks.

Hello.

Firefox prevents me from opening the following URL, citing Google Safe Browsing advisory:

https://github.com/sandboxie-plus/Sandboxie/releases

Google, however, denies having issued any recommendation to block.

I have noticed that the problem has something to do with my own profile. The problem doesn't appear under the following circumstances:

  • I start Firefox in troubleshooting mode
  • I start Firefox with a new profile

I tried manually disabling all my add-ons, but even with all of them disabled, I can still reproduce the problem.

Any idea what could be wrong with my setup?

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.
