Why do I see "Google" when I use your search engine? are you a Google related company?

Are you a google related company? or is Firefox/Moz://a" an independent company?

In Firefox>Privacy and Security, there are two very similar looking settings regarding routine cookie destruction:

Cookies and Site Data>check Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. Manage Permissions [A site list with Block, Allow, Allow for Session]

History>Firefox will Use custom settings for History>Clear history when Firefox closes. Settings: check Cookies

My current understanding is that Cookies and Site Data potentially provides exclusions from the cookie carnage, whereas the History setting per above would delete all cookies. Is this correct as far as it goes? What I keep wondering is why the topic of cookie destruction when closing cannot be handled in one area of the Settings layout, instead of in two different areas.

I am continually getting his Windows Security sign in box when I try to use my stored credit card info from Firefox: Firefox is trying to to use stored credit card information. Complete access to this windows account below.

I tried creating a Firefox master password, but that did not help. How do I get rid of this? It makes having store credit cards almost useless as I have to enter my windows sign on and password everytime I want to use a credit card.

This is mostly a heads-up, in case others run into this problem.

For months I have been unable to log into my healthcare site (https://www.medicare.uhc.com/ via https://www.healthsafe-id.com/) on Firefox (latest PC version). I contacted UHC about the problem. All they did was recommend using a different browser. They passed the problem to level two, who I never heard from.

After many different attempts to localize the problem, I discovered the problem was with the Privacy Possum add-on. I am opening this so that others might find it if they run into the problem. I have removed that add-on, and have provided feedback to Firefox that it does not seem to be adequately supported at this time. I think they should remove it from availability, if they can.

All day long I'm logging into my google account. the same with online microsoft apps; onedrive, word, onenote, etc. I used to have to log in to these things only after turning the computer off. Now it's a constant state of affairs. Help.

The control page of my locally connected printer at 192.168.1.5 is being blocked as a "dangerous" site because it doesn't have a valid certificate as a web site. It's literally RIGHT NEXT TO MY COMPUTER! No path to the public internet is involved! How can I make this an exception (i.e. a "trusted site") to the certificate error blocking routine? I don't want to drop certificate checking for OUTSIDE web pages, just the one that controls my printer (the same IP address is accessible for printing and scanning, but not for editing my printer's options).

The frame for the printer's home page displays but with no data, and no data is displayed when anything is clicked. I've tried to add a screen shot but it doesn't upload.

I have searched numerous ways to control what I view & come empty handed. It appears Mozilla & Microsoft are in cahoots. I managed to block it with AdBlock but the update removed my block. Why do you even allow this? Your help is appreciated. Thanks

(I don't know why but my reply won't show up. So I'm posting the same thing here.)

So I made more research and made my question simpler. FYI I reseted my firefox and since then I've changed settings only via about:preferences and user.js.


Situation A:

(1) Set these preferences.

  • permissions.default.geo =2
  • network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =0
  • privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown =true

(2) Go to https://www.jma.go.jp/jp/highresorad/index.html

  • You'll see a pop-up message that says "位置情報を取得できませんでした。".

(3) Check the box down below (今後このメッセージを表示しない。), and close that message. Then press f5.

  • You'll see that the pop-up message won't show up anymore.

(4) Open a new tab. Then close the previous tab. Revisit the site.

  • You'll see that the pop-up message doesn't show up.

(5) Close all Firefox windows. Then open Firefox and visit the site.

  • Expected: The cookies should have deleted. The pop-up message will show up.
  • Actual Result: The pop-up message doesn't show up.

(6) Do Ctrl-Shift-Delete. Then press F5.

  • You'll see the pop-up message shows up this time.


Situation B:

(1) Set these preferences.

  • permissions.default.geo =2
  • network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =2
  • privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown =true

(2) Go to https://www.jma.go.jp/jp/highresorad/index.html

  • You'll see a pop-up message that says "位置情報を取得できませんでした。".

(3) Check the box down below (今後このメッセージを表示しない。), and close that message. Then press f5.

  • You'll see that the pop-up message won't show up anymore.

(4) Open a new tab. Then close the previous tab. Revisit the site.

  • Expected: You'll see that the pop-up message doesn't show up.
  • Actual Result: You'll see that the pop-up message does show up.

(5) Close all Firefox windows. Then open Firefox and visit the site.

  • You'll see that the pop-up message shows up.

(6) Do Ctrl-Shift-Delete. Then press F5.

  • You'll see the pop-up message shows up this time.


(Original post below.)

Hello.

(Sorry about messy English.)

(1) I set preferences as below.

   network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =0 (accept cookies normally)
   privacy.clearOnShutdown.* =true (define what data is cleared when Firefox is closed)
   privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown =true (make Firefox clear the data when it's closed)

These settings should make Firefox clear all my cookies when closed. But Firefox kept some of it. Firefox cleared the login state, but some site data such as volume control on Nicovideo's video player were kept. That means when you login to the site and watch a video at 17% volume, then close Firefox without clicking the logout link, reopen the same page, you'll see yourself logged out, but when you login to the site, you'll see the volume is set to 17% on the video player, not default 100%.

(2) Now I changed one setting.

   network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =2 (cookies are now for current session only)

This didn't work as intended either. Firefox sure cleared all the cookies, but it did in a weird way. The login states were working as intended. But some site data are not sheared between tabs. That means when you watch a video at 27% volume and close the tab, then revisit the same page, you'll see the volume on the video player is now set to the default 100%.

(3) And finally I found the one caused this.

   dom.ipc.processCount =1 (Firefox must run on a single process)
   network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =2 (same)
   privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown =true (same)

I honestly don't understand why this works, but this way everything seems to be working properly. All cookies are sheared between tabs and they are cleared when Firefox is closed.

My question is:

(a) Why did this happen? Especially the situation (1) makes no sense to me. Why Firefox left some cookies when I told it to clear the cookies on shutdown?

(b) Is there any way to share data between processes? I don't want my Firefox to be single-processed slow browser.

Thanks.

Both Avast and Malwarebytes alert when I open a new webpage or navigate through a website. Both state that they have aborted a connection to mobiclean.xyz identifying it as adware. The identified file doing the redirecting is c:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe. This is only a recent issue within the last few updates. I have scanned using both programs and they indicate that there isn't a threat (Avast both smart scan and full scan). Malwarebytes classifies the event as "RTP detection" and Avast classifies it as "Other:Malware-gen [Trj]. I am not sure if this is a false positive, some kind of Trojan, or the code in firefox.exe is being misidentified. Has anybody else experienced this? If so, what did you do? As of this writing I am scanning with Spybot Search and Destroy. Any information is appreciated. Thanks.
