I switched to a new Mac, I downloaded Kaspersky Internet Security and then I downloaded Firefox but when I want to get to any site I get this : www.youtube.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.". What shall I do ?

I am attempting to connect to my cable modem to change its password. The router is at 192.168.0.1

The modem does not support HTTPS connections. Even when I turn off HTTP Elevation in FireFox, turn off Microsoft Antivirus and Firewall, then type HTTP://192.168.0.1 FireFox changes the address to HTTPS://192.168.0.1

I can connect via HTTP://192.168.0.1 via my iPhone using Safari.

I have also added 192.168.0.1 with care to that it is HTTP: not HTTPS: address in FireFox to allow popups, and that this address is an exception.

I am using Developer Edition, 85.0b3 (64-bit) Windows (en-US). Up and until last version, 84.0x, I was able to access the network.security.esni.enabled setting, but now it's missing from about:config I have tried all three versions of 85.0 ( b1 b2 b3 ... so far ), and none of them have this setting. Manually adding the key has no effect.

I have also checked the [notes for 85.0beta] ,but couldn't find any note with regards to this change.

Is this a bug, or has this feature been removed, or moved to a different config page?

I shifted to Firefox from Google Chrome and now missing a feature. Almost all other Chromium based browser have this feature. It is Windows Hello integration. It's basically like when someone tries to see my password from saved password in browser a pop-up window arrives which verifies is it me who is trying to see the password or not by scanning my face (face recognition). I saw Firefox Nightly has this feature but since it updates everyday and requires restart so it is quite annoying for me. I wanted to know if is there any way to enable Windows Hello in Firefox stable build. NOTE THAT, I am aware of "master password" and not talking about that. I am attaching a screenshot of Windows Hello in Chrome browser.

BLOCKING FILE SYSTEM ACCESS -- DANGEROUS ALLOWANCE -- IDEAS & SUGGESTIONS

Hello to all, I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years… (funda kabanzi)

Hello to all,

I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years of developments... Why? To keep this allowed makes it too easy for hackers, especially with multiple screens and a shadow/background screens available which can be running in the background, not seen, when hackers do that.. Kind of the way TeamViewer allows help to be provided remotely. Kind of screen sharing. Oh well...

Maybe need lots of complaints from you all to get this changed?..


Try yourselves to use file://C:/ with 2 // and file:///C:/ with 3 // and both are allowing access to the whole file system and any data file. BONKERS??? But why to use 3 /// if 2 // still works? Insider's job or programming conflict? Why would Firefox programmers allow that? I do not understand...

I tried to use selective website blocker, but for file:/// that addon says that the page is not supported... Maybe another type of addon could be developed for this to be blocked and secured once and for all, but not sure if Firefox would allow such an access or such a blocking. May cause issues with Downloads and accessing download folder from within Firefox. HOWEVER, they could block any system or file access from the ADDRESS BAR and SEARCH BAR and then do a work-around solution by developing a special warning 'dialog message' each time when any user (owner or remote user) tries to access forlder to see or use any file. That would be a lot like a guest account requiring password to access special folder or file, or wants to perform an action usually not allowed for a guest user. Password is required for that each time, or at leats a visual confirmation. That would help, I hope...

Would need to re-educate users after this! TOO DANGEROUS TO KEEP THIS IN SUCH A WAY AS IT IS NOW!!!!

DOES FIREFOX TEAM UNDERSTAND THIS? Maybe they forgot about this, maybe they did not figure out how to solve this, or maybe someone from an inside is helping hackers to have a very easy access? Not sure, but this "open doors to all system and data files for anyone" is shocking!


What about business or government people? What about online bullying and harrassment? What about privacy about which Firefox writes so much? Need more complaints to make this a serious issue. So, everyone, please write your own comments or complaints to Firefox and Chrome directly and maybe they will listen. This may take more work than we think, but my ideas may help. What about your ideas? Express them below and maybe they will help as well.


You all can ask them for this to be blocked or solved, so ask. Maybe my ideas will help to get this moving. Write your own to them as well. And Microsoft may need to get involved as well because Firefox, and from what I read, Chrome allows this too... Other browsers may be doing that as well...!!!!!! There are loads of various browsers available!!!! I read something about Windows Policies, but I do not understand what that is...


(( !!! )) If any of you will try any system changes in an attempt to try solving this issue, make sure you are okay to risk with crashed system requiring reinstall or recovery to be used, and then, write down all the changes you do in detail before carrying any further and applying them because that may ruin the system without a way to recover it.

Thank you in advance.

I recently installed the Firefox Multi Account Containers extension. I am wondering if tabs opened in "No Container" are in their own container. If I open youtube.com in a container called Google, it cannot read cookies from the Shopping container, or any other container, but can it read the cookies in "No Container"? I would like to use the "No Container" as my default container, but if information can be shared between "No Container" and other containers, then I'll have to recreate the Personal Container, and never use the "No Container" option.

How settings for privacy and security are supposed to work vs. how they work

1. I have ALL cookies blocked in all windows, through the CUSTOM option. Some websites defined in the Exception list as Blocked and some websites that I cannot recognize (and are not on the Exception list as Allowed or Allowed for session), still save cookies that I can see under Manage Data. The first two screen captures )on the left) show Google as blocked, but still saving cookies. Is this a feature or a bug?

2. I am using a website called athenahealth. It forced me to allow for session a bunch of domains and subdomains, including one that starts with 8752-2.

The last 2 screen captures show: - info in the Shield for cookies, where the subdomain starting w. 8752-2 is shown as blocked

- the list of exceptions that shows this same subdomain (starting w. 8752-2) as allowed for session.

How is the above possible? Is this the way this is meant to work?

3. Is there a way to copy out, export or at least print the list of websites under Exceptions? I am concerned that somehow they are deleted (I was reading that Refresh deletes them, maybe something else does that too) and it took me quite a lot of experimentation to figure out what is that I have to allow for websites that I need vs. what I can safely block, when blocking ALL doesn't do the job.

4. Is there anything planned to allow a preview before printing (like in Safari) to facilitate printing only what one wants to print?

I'd very much appreciate answers to the above.

Seriously, Firefox, I don't think you could have made this more confusing if you tried. Why did you name the Facebook Container extension the same as the Multi-Container Facebook Container extension?

Basic questions 1. When you're in the Multi-Container Facebook Container are you supposed to open Facebook within that container to keep it contained there? Or are you supposed to open websites within Multi-Container Facebook Container that you want to protect from Facebook?

2. Does the Facebook Container extension work within all of the Multi-Container containers?

Since a few weeks only whenever you start browsing on any browser, a window opens asking you to agree or refuse the settings for tracking by cookies etc. Does this procedure annulate myown prefenrences settings?

Most of the people don't care about that and tired of being harrassed just agree to all trackings and cookies. But I don't want to be tracked and my preferences settings are all personnalised and quite strict on what I agree and what I don't agree.

So if firefox asks me to agree before I'm allowed to browse, and I agree to all of the tracking, does this annulate my privacy settings in the parametres?

Please give me an answer to [email]@gmail.com or call me +[phone number]

Or on this forum?

Hello, I'm a person who has recently started using the calls on discord more frequently, which means that we like to screenshare the content we're browsing and we want to do that without pressure. It is completely fine when it comes to people I know IRL, they know my name, they know my last name, they know my email, I'm not worried when it comes to them, but, if I'm sharing Firefox, I always have to remember that I should stop sharing before clicking those three lines for the right side menu, before I accidentally show my email, which contains my real name.

Is there any option to protect me? To hide the email, or the entire option, or just for it to say something like "My account"?

If the feature does exist, please let me know! And if it doesn't, I'd like to have it for a future update.

Thanks in advance.

Under EXCEPTIONS I had to ALLOW certain websites. Then I decided to experiment and see what ALLOWED for SESSION really does.

Neither the entries for websites I allowed for a session were deleted from the list of exceptions, nor the cookies saved by these websites were deleted even when I closed the browser.

I do not see the difference in terms of what happens between selecting Allow vs. Allow for session.

Could someone who knows please explain or point me to the place that explains the difference and how this works?

Thanks.
