I, like most people, use ad-blockers (ABP) but ad providers are always discovering new ways to annoy; is there a way to prevent Firefox from creating new tabs and windows, or ask for user confirmation whenever such event happens?

Yahoo intruded and functions as default search, even though Google has been and is still designated as default in the settings. I removed Yahoo from the list of 1-click browsers, but that didn't affect its unwanted function as default search. This began out of the blue several days ago, and I have no idea how. I dislike Yahoo in general and have not been on that site. I'm getting really frustrated!

Hello,

I am getting a McAfee pop up notification and I have identified the site name and would like to add it to the notifications settings to block it but I cannot figure out how to add a site manually to that list. There are no options on the notification settings to allow for a manual site addition. I am on FireFox version 88.0.1 on Windows 10 Pro.

I have also tried searching to see how to remove what is probably malware and cannot find anything. I do not have any McAfee products on my laptop.

Sincerely,

AmazonPrincessDiana

Last night my Firefox 94.0.2 was hacked. When running Firefox, it would lock up my desktop. It disabled Norton Security, it disable other installed security software, and it disabled Windows System Restore. The hacker put up a message claiming to be Microsoft Support, with a phone number to call for help. This was a scam. I ran Firefox refresh, and that removed the hacker's program from Firefox, but then I had to do a full repair of my Window's installation. To protect my system, and prevent this from happening again, I added "xpinstall.enabled = false" into about.config. Please let me know if this will prevent a web site from installing a dangerous hack into Firefox, or if there is something else that I need to do. I have used Firefox for years, and have never encountered this problem before. Firefox is my favorite browser, but I am now afraid to use it. Please advise me what to do. Thanks, Jim

Hi,

I downloaded JDownloader yesterday. It forcefully installed some adware which became the default search engine, can't recall its name and Avast Antivirus. There was no option to uncheck them while installing. Since I didn't like JD at all so I uninstalled them all using Revo Uninstaller. Now while I searched something in the url bar few times that adware's page searched my keywords. I opened my settings and I got this message Your browser is being managed by your organization. PFA.

I am not even sure how in the world to explain what info I need. Please be patient, because I don't want a bunch of answers that don't answer this very important question to me: when you type in your email, or user name, which ever is required to log into a website, how it is that the user name is remembered? Which part of the browser is recalling the user name and how do you stop it? I never ever allow browsers to remember/retain passwords. Now, I am having real concern about the part of the browser that recalls user name and whatever else. I went to log into a site, Amazon, and I usually don't even have to type the full email when my full email appears. It is a common thing for all of us. But I see a half dozen of my other emails and possible user names -- as though someone was trying to log in and used a name that I would never use. It was abusive, too. I have a strong feeling, too, that this mozilla site, some people in this site, do not honor people's privacy. I cannot see how in the world anyone could create something like that otherwise. You would have to have access to an individual's browser in their notebook, and use it to try to log into sites, there were a few of them, using various user names. How can one do that? Well some of those people who lurk around here pretending to help, but don't have enough to do and don't know what being professional means. Anyone here who would dare violate anyone's privacy can be charged with a crime. that is theft and worse. To use someone's browser to try to log into sites like Amazon. To be guessing at user names, and making some up. I never use anything but what I actually use, so to see my emails and usernames, PLUS made up names that someone thinks they might use, or someone here thinks oh this woujld be funny, is the worst kind of business that will get mozilla right off the map here. Please how do I get in touch with the creators of this? I can take a screen shot. I have done that before. No browser recalls any thing unless it is has been used and is stored. That is how the user name is recalled, but how could that happen if I never used that specific name? Who could have done that? Please if I need to explain better, ask. This is very important. Very important.

Hi guys. I tested this recently on notebook with Windows 10. I installed Firefox, sign in to my account, synced everything. Let's say, I need to delete all the data and this account from this particular device. I couldn't find such an option. When I deleted my account from Firefox, all the data left on the notebook! Even when I uninstall the browser, and then install it again - browser restored all the data!!!

Is it possible to delete my sync account and all the data related to it: history, bookmarks, sessions, extensions, add-ons, everything?

Let's say, I'm signed in on a friend's laptop and need to delete everything later.

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

As Firefox doesn't allow you to prevent updates, is there a way to get the HTTPS switches working, or is this another introduced bug we are supposed to put up with? If I attempt to access my router using 192.168.1.1 Firefox automatically changes the address to https://192.168.1.1. Guess what you morons: NONE OF MY ROUTERS USE HTTPS AND CANNOT BE ACCESSED! Instead I now use Edge which allows what I enter to be used and gives me access. Another reason to dump this crap. Why is it that each and every time I am forced to update: I don't get a choice, I get another reason not to use Firefox. If you charged for this crap the developers would have been sacked long ago. Please don't insult my intelligence by pointing me Privacy & Settings because none of the options make any difference. So when can we expect to get working software?

It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

Hello,

I like Firefox unfortunately all browsers are so 1999... It is impossible to use without addons, if you browser internet a lot and have opened a lot of tabs and windows.

I'm using FF 72.0.2 64-Bit and I've Avast installed (issue is related to Firefox! not just Avast).

1) Firefox brand new installation (English language) 2) "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla" deleted in the regedit 3) in "about:config" I have "security.enterprise_roots.enabled"=false and "security.certerrors.mitm.auto_enable_enterprise_roots"=false 4) in "Certificate Manager" I have deleted "Avast Web/Mail Shield Root" certificate 5) I didn't have any active plug-in (only OpenH264 codec is listed and is disabled), I have no extensions installed, privacy policy set to strict, private browsing mode, all permissions disabled, checked "prevent accessibility services from accessing your brower", blocked "Deceptive Content and Dangerous Software Protection" and certificates set to "Ask you every time" 6) "Connection settinges" set to "No proxy" 7) NO active policy listed in "about:policies" ("about:policies#active" is empty) and NO "Your browser is being managed by your organization" message is shown

Why if I enabled "Enable HTTPS scanning" inside Avast Web Shield, and I go to https://2016.eicar.org/85-0-Download.html trying to download "eicar.com" using SSL, is this test-virus detected by Avast BEFORE (!) downloading? I was expecting that, at most, Firefox will not be able to surf the web if no direct HTTPS connection is allowed by Avast. Why does Firefox allow a MITM connection (even if Avast certificate has been deleted, even if there isn't any active policy listed in "about:policies#active") and I'm not able to avoid this behavior?

Moreover, once I restart the PC, security.enterprise_roots.enabled is forced to True (locked), "Avast Web/Mail Shield Root" reinstalled inside "Certificate Manager" and "Your browser is being managed by your organization" message is back.

Why can't the user have full control on Firefox? In my opinion, this is a critical security issue. I mean, how could an external software so easily take full control of Firefox? Additionally, using this approach a MITM attack can be done quite easily from an organization having an active certificate and without the user even knowing it (I repeat, "about:policies#active" was empty). Tested on Windows 10 and Windows 7.

Thank you
