I AM using VPN and I found Firefox is leaking DNS, as it doesn't happen in another browser. I read it is caused by automatic updates: https://www.reddit.com/r/privacy/comments/2e20ni/firefox_dns_leak/ I tried to disable automatic updates by flipping this value: "app.update.auto" in about:config to false. But it did not help.

Can you please help me to fix this, I don't know what it's causing it...

So after about 5 years or so of not using Firefox as my default browser, I have finally decided to move back to Firefox and try it out again.

I do not want to jump to conclusions as I may just have a lack of knowledge BUT...

I have been using Chrome and Edge Chromium for last last few years. When I go to a Private Browser Tab, visit a site, it WILL NOT remember the history and sites visited, nor will it remember the added websites to bookmarks.

So here I use Firefox the most talked Privacy browser and this is what I read on a knowledge base article.

Note: New passwords and bookmarks you create while using Private Browsing will be saved. Any files you download to your computer while using Private Browsing will be saved.

So how is this private? Not even Edge or Chrome does this. This is a major privacy concern, this needs to be fixed. It is enough for me to dismiss Firefox as an option. It should simply not save a history accessible in private mode or in standard mode of sites you have added, visited, etc... in private mode.

I would like to know if there is a work around.

Cheers M.

Latest update issue? Windows 8.1 here. Not able to access www.merriam-webster.com site from Firefox, Chrome, nor Internet Explorer with Ethernet connection nor WIFI. I can access the site from my Windows 10 laptop running Firefox. Also have had issues with other sites, but was able to resolve by clicking the appropriate button. Sorry I can't describe this better in a more technical manner.

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.

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.

I get constant pop-up adds on SoundCloud. I have a paid account there, but there is no way to contact the managers directly. Is this an add or a notification? I see it as an add because it says Advertisement. I thought Firefox blocked adds and pop-up windows. Why do I only get these add pop-ups on SoundCloud and how to I prevent them? I have scrolled through dozens of posts in your Support page and have seen NOTHING related to my problem.

 Thanks for any help with this issue.

I am suffering from the same issue posted on AskDifferent and since there is no answer there, I thought to paste the question here.

I have installed Firefox (version 90.0.2) on macOS version 11.5.1. In the Camera and Microphone panes under the Privacy tab in Security & Privacy settings, Firefox is missing.

I tried this answer and this, then opened Firefox and navigated to a website that prompted for using the cam and mic.

Yet, when I approved it on Firefox, the Mac privacy dialog did not pop.

How can I give permissions to Firefox for microphone and camera to be able to use them in Firefox? (should it be by modifying the privacy database?) Is this a Firefox bug? Right now, it forces me to use other internet browsers :(

I am writing here from Chrome browser because in accounts.firefox.com I get "Cookies and local storage are required. Please enable... Try again". Cookies are already enabled, Manage Cookies shows a lot of them -some minutes old (I had deleted them in one of the attempts to fix the issue, also recent history and other privacy stuff). Some pages I access regularly remain blank. One of them displays its content for 1/2 second. Other shows me the login page but I cannot login. Other sites I can access to the main page but its links. About required "local storage" there's nothing about that under Settings search. FF 92.0 Ubuntu 20.04 I've been using Ubuntu/Firefox for 14 years. Thank you

mailman doesn't allow certificates to be placed on that part of the server, when the server is PLESK. It is an add on feature, and they are not doing it yet. Therefore I'm getting close to self signed certificate error, but with no button available to accept and move go to page... or what ever wording you really have.

I'm trying to get to my own mailman list, that I had no problem creating yesterday. Now I get the certificate warning, but no button to go beyond and take the risk.

I did download and install the new firefox since then, so don't know if that is an issue.

I already searched your site, and tried the options that were available in your trouble shooting areas... but none of them have worked.

Was this caused by the update I did this morning? Anyway, this is my own mail list admin area, and I need to admin my maillist. I can be reached better at we.the.people@peoplesworldwar.com Tammy

A week ago I started using a primary password for FF. I learned it by heart, also copied it to my iPhone in a safe notation (I have access to the notation using my finger print). It worked just fine for the first days. Today I tried to use the primary password again, in order to enter a website, but somehow FF denies me entrance, again and again. No spelling issues or missing characters, because I copy the primary password from my iPhone notation and paste it into the primary password field on my Mac. In FF Lockwise (on my iPhone) I can also still see my primary FF password, which is exactly the same. Typing it down character by character doesn’t solve the problem, nor does restarting FF. Caps lock is off. No issues with my keyboard. In my privacy and security setting I cannot to stop FF from asking my primary password, because (of course also there) it won’t recognize the primary password I enter...

There is no one who knows about my primary password nor has anyone access to my computer or iPhone. So there is no way I could explain somebody to have been able to change my primary password. Could anybody please explain to me what might be going on? Did other people experience the same issue? What steps should I take to try to solve it?

And I surely wish not to need to reset my primary password, because I will lose all my saved passwords from FF... Happily I still have access to FF Lockwise on my iPhone (using my finger print). So I could still copy each password and save it somewhere else. But that would mean quite a lot of work. Besides of that I don’t trust it to work better next time I set up a primary FF password…

I hope I explained my problem well enough. Thanks in advance for trying to help me out!
