BLOCKING FILE SYSTEM ACCESS -- DANGEROUS ALLOWANCE -- IDEAS & SUGGESTIONS

Hello to all,

I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years of developments... Why? To keep this allowed makes it too easy for hackers, especially with multiple screens and a shadow/background screens available which can be running in the background, not seen, when hackers do that.. Kind of the way TeamViewer allows help to be provided remotely. Kind of screen sharing. Oh well...

Maybe need lots of complaints from you all to get this changed?..


Try yourselves to use file://C:/ with 2 // and file:///C:/ with 3 // and both are allowing access to the whole file system and any data file. BONKERS??? But why to use 3 /// if 2 // still works? Insider's job or programming conflict? Why would Firefox programmers allow that? I do not understand...

I tried to use selective website blocker, but for file:/// that addon says that the page is not supported... Maybe another type of addon could be developed for this to be blocked and secured once and for all, but not sure if Firefox would allow such an access or such a blocking. May cause issues with Downloads and accessing download folder from within Firefox. HOWEVER, they could block any system or file access from the ADDRESS BAR and SEARCH BAR and then do a work-around solution by developing a special warning 'dialog message' each time when any user (owner or remote user) tries to access forlder to see or use any file. That would be a lot like a guest account requiring password to access special folder or file, or wants to perform an action usually not allowed for a guest user. Password is required for that each time, or at leats a visual confirmation. That would help, I hope...

Would need to re-educate users after this! TOO DANGEROUS TO KEEP THIS IN SUCH A WAY AS IT IS NOW!!!!

DOES FIREFOX TEAM UNDERSTAND THIS? Maybe they forgot about this, maybe they did not figure out how to solve this, or maybe someone from an inside is helping hackers to have a very easy access? Not sure, but this "open doors to all system and data files for anyone" is shocking!


What about business or government people? What about online bullying and harrassment? What about privacy about which Firefox writes so much? Need more complaints to make this a serious issue. So, everyone, please write your own comments or complaints to Firefox and Chrome directly and maybe they will listen. This may take more work than we think, but my ideas may help. What about your ideas? Express them below and maybe they will help as well.


You all can ask them for this to be blocked or solved, so ask. Maybe my ideas will help to get this moving. Write your own to them as well. And Microsoft may need to get involved as well because Firefox, and from what I read, Chrome allows this too... Other browsers may be doing that as well...!!!!!! There are loads of various browsers available!!!! I read something about Windows Policies, but I do not understand what that is...


(( !!! )) If any of you will try any system changes in an attempt to try solving this issue, make sure you are okay to risk with crashed system requiring reinstall or recovery to be used, and then, write down all the changes you do in detail before carrying any further and applying them because that may ruin the system without a way to recover it.

Thank you in advance.

Hi! I found a strange thing today. I wanted to open an ftp link and firefox asked me in which app I wanted to open it. Of course I wanted to open it in Firefox, but the only app on list was Internet Explorer. So, I added Firefox to the list, but I couldn't open the link with it, because when I marked Firefox and tried to click "open", nothing happend and the box still appeared. So, I ended up using IE. I'm using Firefox Nightly (81.0a1 atm of encountering this).

It is just annoying having to click on it each time. I found an article online but it must have been applicable to an earlier version as when I go to Options > Privacy > History section there is no longer a button on the right "Exceptions..". I am using version 81.0.1 (64 bit). Any help appreciated. Thanks

I just noticed a weird problem. First, I had my browser set to tell me about updates but let me decide. However, today when I went to my credit card account, the page would not display properly. In checking the situation I found that I had Firefox 81.0 installed. However, I keep a record of all updates, and the last one I made manually was to 78.0.2 on 7/9/2020. Somehow the setting to do updates automatically was changed. Apparently, I was updated to 81.0 and perhaps other versions without my knowledge. So I don't know when this last update was made.

The problem occurs when I go to chase.com to enter my account. The basic Chase page shows fine. However, when I enter my login credentials, it takes me to a page where I see only a white screen with a blue bar. (see image attached) The rest of the information on that page is missing. I tried disabling all my plugins, and it makes no difference. I called Chase support, and they said they have no known issues on their site. I tried uninstalling 81.0 and reinstalling 78.0.2. However, when I started it, it reported that the profile format had changed, so I could not use that old version without starting over. My profile must have been updated with one of the background updates. I upgraded again to 81.0. All the other financial sites I have tried, and every other website so far, works fine. There seems to be something about the Chase account pages and Firefox 81.0. I know that I accessed these pages over the weekend with no problem, so the update must have occurred after that. The site works fine in Chrome, but I prefer Firefox.

I am concerned both about the automatic updating without my permission, and the seeming display problem with the chase pages and Firefox 81.0. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Starting 24 hours ago, Firefox loads a blank Facebook page. Whether using my homepage bookmark or simply entering http://www.facebook.com, all I get is a blank page.

I've tried: Starting Firefox in safe mode, Clearing cache and cookies, Deleting/reinstalling Firefox, Restarting my router.

Firefox opens all other websites without issue. Chrome opens Facebook as expected. I'm using Firefox 81.0.2 (64-bit) Windows 10 Home 64-bit Version: 18363.1139

I've tried reading through the over 2,000 "suggested" help topics related to Facebook loading a blank page, but none of the ones I read address this issue. What am I missing?

Hi, I opened Firefox this morning and found Amazon pinned among my top sites. Weirdly enough, I can't unpin it or dismiss it - it just stays there whatever I do (in contrast to other pinned sites). It's not a huge problem, but I have some ethical issues with Amazon, so the last thing I want to see every time I open my browser is their logo. I also wonder how did it get there in the first place (I sometimes do browse the site to get an idea what are the prices of various products, but not too often and I'm not sure if there is a way to pin it by accident at all). Does anyone have the same problem?

I refuse to give that awful human of a Jeff Bezos and his Amazon any more exposure than it already has, and have it normally blocked. If Firefox FORCES me to give attention to them, then I have no other choice to move away from Firefox after years and years of using it.

On the new home page with all those web site icons, and also in Bookmarks, SOME but not most web sites require you to click, slowly, to open a web page. Otherwise nothing happens. The most common is Microsoft Outlook web mail, as used by our University as standard email (Illinois at Urbana-Champaign). This started a couple of Firefox updates ago.

I find nothing about it anywhere.

The delay between clicks needs to be quite long like a second or more. In some cases up to 30 seconds works. At a couple of seconds it always works. If I close outlook and then try again later, after a minute of so that usually but not alwas does not happen, but after an hour, always.

If I start up Web Developer Network before trying, it says it sends a "get" but a red "circle with line through it" icon (i.e. the usual "don't" one) appears with "blocked" written in red.

How do I fix this?

Here's the issue in a nutshell:

When I navigate to this URL (https://publicdelivery.b-cdn.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Jeff-Koons-Michael-Jackson-and-Bubbles-1988-ceramic-106.7-x-179.1-x-82.5cm.jpg) intending on saving out the picture, Firefox ( or so it appears) forces the user to save it as webp, instead of its actual format, as you can see from the URL. Granted, I got to that photo in the first place from Google image search but spawned it into an independent window, which should occupy a separate memory space and not reference a previously cached file. While i get the primary application is to allow for multiple res versions while referencing only one file, this behaviour is pointless, irksome and serves no practical purpose when accessing the asset with an explicit URL, plus it puts unnecessary and Big Brother-ish barriers up for the less savvy. I solved the issue ultimately, but who is at fault here? Is this a function of Firefox or of the CDN where it's hosted?

I foolishly clicked on Refresh and when it was done I had lost all bookmarks and history. I am at my wits' end trying to get back to where I was and will never do that again. Considering I am 80 years old I know for a fact there are probably a lot of things I won't be doing again but I would like to just go back to where I was. I am no longer able to get into Facebook which isn't going to cause the Earth to spin off its axis but I have several friends I really enjoy staying in touch with and it isn't possible to even enter FB now. I have tried everything, read all directions, followed all orders, jumped through all hoops (great Kodak moment for those of you with cameras) and I have failed.

I know that someone here, probably many of you, are more knowledgeable with the way this works and I would just enjoy being able to contact these two friends and get their emails, the FB connection isn't all that important. Now my question is and feel free to laugh but could this Refresh have caused some glitch in the innards of something or other that would cause this problem?

If any of you could help out a senior here I would be most appreciative.

Thank you for even reading my whining and begging plea.
