I'm curious: when I choose to autofill a saved password, does Firefox copy and paste the password under the hood, i.e. does the password ever appear in my clipboard, or does Firefox emulate the keyboard to fill in the password? Or something else?

Thanks!

Former Chrome user, finding my way in Firefox.

For some reason the shortcut ctrl + shift + p does not work when I use the left shift key on my keyboard.

When I use the RIGHT shift key with ctrl and P it DOES work. When I use the LEFT shift key with ctrl and P it does NOT work. I have a Coolermaster keyboard. I never noticed any difference between right shift and left shift? Does Firefox interpret them as different keys?

I recently changed my browser from chrome to fire fox but all my passwords are saved on chrome. I tried to import them on firefox but nothing gets imported from chrome. There is no autofill option for passwords here. I clicked on the three dots and did everything it said on the website but still the error message keeps popping up saying " An error occurred while trying to save this password". I tried going in the Passwords option and doing it manually but then the error message comes every time. Im using Firefox on my laptop.

Hi!

I want to dump/debug http traffic with mitm proxy: https://github.com/ganskef/LittleProxy-mitm . This proxy generates it's own root certificate which i manually imported to Firefox from about:preferences#privacy > View Certificates > Authorities > Import. I verified that cert shows up after importing it. But I get errors despite of that:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.youtube.com. Peer’s certificate has an invalid signature.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE

Is there a way to bypass it?

Today is the day I cannot use Firefox anymore. It keeps on blocking webservers in my local network because of a self-signed certificate.

It is a shame, I have been a loyal Firefox user since Netscape. Today marks the beginning of the end of this journey. A pitty.

So, Chrome it is from now on.

I use this extension in Firefox on my home PC with no problems. However, when I try to use it on my work PC, Firefox won't load any web pages until I disable the extension - which is very frustrating. No doubt there is something different in settings which I am unaware of which is preventing the pages from opening? The other extensions which I use, AdBlocker Ultimate & Facebook Contaner, seem to work fine on both PC's.

Hi, suddently i can't delete history browsing in firefox. No matter what i try it still not clear the browsing history. What first i do is "Forget About This Site" option to delete single history form a website but it doesn't work. Then i try to delete browsing history from setting, setup to clear history when firefox closed and even i delete history with "Everything" option it still doesn't work.

I don't remember exactly, but if i not wrong i've got this issue since upgrade to 91.0.2 version. For your information, i use Firefox-bin version in Gentoo Linux with i3 Window Manager.

Any help will be apreciated.

Has anyone seen a problem with firefox 92 stripping out headers? My scenario is I have an AD FS server that I use for single sign on with a domain name that is different from the application that it federated with. When I attempt to login using Firefox, the traffic flows as: 1. Hit the app url and get 302 redirected to the IDP 2. enter credentials at the IDP and get redirected to the app url 3. the app has an internal and external claims URL, so the internal claims url 302 redirects me to the external url 4. FF brings up the external url, but does NOT pass the MSISAuth and MSISAuth1 cookies from the IDP 5. The app thinks I've not authenticated, so it 302 redirects me back to the IDP 6. The IDP sees the MSISAuth and MSISAuth1 cookies, so it knows it authenticated me and it 302 redirects me back to the app wash, rinse, repeat for 5 times until AD FS realizes that I've done this 5 times, then it throws an error at me to stop the loop.

This was working fine in FF 91 and it currently works in Chrome and Edge. The expected flow is almost the same, except that the app get's the cookies presented to it from AD FS.

I was thinking this was something to do with Enhanced Tracking Protection. When I selected Custom and unchecked all the options (I think this disables ETP) I still get the cookies stripped from the header. I re-enabled ETP with standard protections and manually added the URLs using the steps outlined at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1432644#c27. Is this a bug where FF doesn't honor the settings to disable ETP in V92? The reason I was thinking that ETP was to blame is the IDP has a domain of IDP.example and the app has the URL's of internalclaim.app and externalclaim.app.

I tried sending a friend of mine an audio message on FB messenger (in firefox 92, updated yesterday), on Windows 7. Facebook tells me it needs permission (see image). I've tried everything I can find about this. The Firefox page-info permissions is now set to "ALLOW" although it was set to use default (ALWAYS ASK). It just doesn't work. In the regular settings for microphone, it will NOT ALLOW me to add the website and apparently, FB is NOT asking for permission, because the entire dialog is EMPTY.

Apologies for re-posting, I asked about this issue before https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1323826, but it was archived without any response :(

In an answer to this question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1318109#answer-1376159 cor-el warned that using OS authentication (for example, TouchID on a Mac) for passwords instead of a Primary Password is actually not really safe because it doesn't encrypt logins in logins.json and it would be possible to extract them by running: prompt("Logins",JSON.stringify(Services.logins.getAllLogins())); Now I am a bit confused because for storing Credit Cards the default is, of course, using OS authentication (I don't think there's an option to set a password instead). So I am wondering, is that safe, i.e., is the credit card information encrypted that I can retrieve with my TouchID (even without a Primary Password)?

And if so, would anybody be able to explain the differences between these two approaches and why the Firefox developers chose one for Logins/Passwords but the other for Credit Cards.

My autofill is no longer working. It is particularly annoying to not have my credit card information filled in. When I looked online for solutions, it said to:

Click the menu button Menu and select Options. Click the Privacy & Security panel and scroll down to the Forms and Autofill section. Click the check box next to Autofill credit cards to turn it on, or uncheck the box to turn it off.

I do not have a Forms and Autofill section.....only one that says Autofill Logins and Passwords.

Note: I am in America and I am using Firefox 88.0.1. I am not willing to update to 90 unless FF returns the extremely helpul Page Actions Menu in the search bar. The autofill has stopped working within the last week or two.

Thank you!
