Is there a way to disable the HSTS ( HTTP Strict Transport Security ) list built into Firefox or to allow exceptions?

HSTS is problematic in that it incorrectly assumes that all users trust the default list of CAs and makes the adding of exceptions impossible even by advanced users.

For example, torproject.org is inaccessible on Firefox unless I am willing to trust DigiCert to never sign a fake certificate either by negligence or by court order of any country in witch they operate, thereby making every https: site ( not just torproject.org ) vulnerable to a MITM attack.

A user disabling CAs in the browser is not unreasonable given the ever growing list of CAs built into Firefox ( each one a potential point of failure ), the number of CAs that have been recently compromised and the very low standards required to obtain a certificate.

While I understand the desire to protect the average user who doesn't understand how certificates work and will click past warnings without reading them, this protection should not come at the expense of more security conscious users.

I would recommend an about:config setting that would allow the creation of exceptions by users who explicitly choose to do so.

So far the only kludge I have been able to come up with is to modify c:\program files\mozilla firefox\xul.dll with a hex editor and replace the sites on the list ( this is far from an ideal solution ).

I've been using a master password for years. I also use Sync. Today I wanted to look up one of my saved passwords. When I went to do this I noticed that Firefox was no longer set to use a master password. I'm afraid that I may have been hacked, or that something else happened (recent Firefox update?) that caused the use of the master password to be disabled.

I have not yet checked my other Synced computers to see if their master passwords have also been turned off.

I have re-enabled the master password feature on this computer.

On this particular computer, I've had a long-standing issue where Firefox "Help>About Firefox" always shows that I need to "Restart to Update". This means that I cannot use "Help>About Firefox" to check for and install the latest version. I need to download Firefox manually and update by running the installer.

So.. I heared that a site can see my browsing history using a bug.

I saw on some sites that this option: layout.css.visited_links_enabled should be turned off. i did so. Did I do good?

After this, i tryed this test: http://pcflank.com/browser_test1.htm and i failed COOKIE CHECK test. I got this message: "Your computer may save SPECIAL COOKIES on your hard drive that have the purpose of directing advertising or finding out your habits while web surfing."

After this, i tryed this test using Internet explorer 6 and Google Chrome, and this browsers passed the test. What should i do? Is this test good? IF not, please leave me a link with a test i should do.

I use Windows XP.

Thanks for your answers.

Hey,

My problem is that I set Tools / Options / Privacy / History to "Use custom settings for history", and then under cookies I set Keep until: to "I close Firefox".

Yet, when I close my browser and restart none of the cookies are deleted. If I save my tabs, I stay logged in on the websites that are open on the saved tabs. But even if I close the website, and then quit. And then reopen the website after launching Firefox again, I am still logged in. Whereas Firefox is set not to remember any of my usernames or passwords, so the only way this can happen is via cookies. Therefore, the cookies are not deleted. But I can also see it in the list of cookies: it's full of old stuff.

So why are cookies not deleted despite this setting?

Firefox has beeen pretty soft on privacy lately, and frankly I don't understand why. The possibility to have history older than X days automatically deleted has also been gone for a long time, and now this cookie setting doesn't work, either.

Ever since Firefox 16 and 17 versions came out I've always had this issue with the location bar not remembering my option. "When using the location bar, suggest: Nothing." Is what I prefer but if I ever reboot my computer or simply restart firefox over all, it always goes back to the option "History and Bookmarks." I find this very annoying. The reason I waited so long to report this is because I had hoped the next version of Firefox would take care of it. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem or will I have to simply wait till it's fixed by Firefox itself?

For example, I visited www.example.com on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Of all the 3 times, Firefox only remembers the visit on Wednesday. Because when I visited www.example.com on Tuesday, the history is renewed, deleting record of Monday; when I visit www.example.com on Wednesday, record of Tuesday evaporated.

So, no matter how many times I visit a certain web address, Firefox only remembers the last time. Is there a way to tweak Firefox to make it faithfully record history?

I'm not a native English speaker. I hope my poor English clearly describe the question.

Thanks in advance for your answers.

I accidentally turned on private browsing briefly, and turned it back on. Everything worked fine for that session. I left my computer in sleep mode. The next time I used it, I had been logged out of every web account I have. Most of the accounts let me log back in, but on one of them I'm getting a message that says "Cookies must be enabled to log in"

I went to Tools/options/privacy and made sure both of the "accept cookies" tabs were clicked (they were)

I tried switching the History setting from custom to "firefox will remember history" but that didn't help either.

As far as I can tell, cookies are enabled, but I'm still getting the message to turn them on.

I have to hit cancel at the prompt for a master password for the browser to launch. At that point if I go and change the master password it accepts my password and I'm now "logged in" to the password database. I can repeat this process every time I restart the browser.

Do I just down grade -- or is there anything else I can do to get functionality back?

Earlier versions of Firefox would let us specify how long to keep browsing history, and would then automatically clear out anything older than that. I can't find this option in Firefox 17. I've been having serious problems with FF, with frequent and lengthy pauses, which I finally traced to there being far too much browsing history being held. When I cleared out all browsing history, it seems to have resolved itself (crossing fingers). For the record: I had also tried starting in Safe Mode (w addons disabled), defragging my hard drive, radically reducing the number of open tabs, etc. Clearing browsing history was the only thing that made a difference.

Can we setup FF so that it will automatically clear out old browsing history? It seems to be all-or-nothing in Tools > Options > Privacy. I have FF clear out the cache every time I close it, but I don't want to clear out all history; just past a certain time (e.g. 90 days). I'm aware that I can manage this manually through History on the main menu, but I would rather this happen automatically.

Thanks in advance for the help with this.
