Just now I tried to make a payment to a site but the payment pop up was blocked but I don't have a pop up blocker loaded. I have had a similar experience at various times when I want to make a card payment to sites where my details are not pre stored. I can make payments to the same sites using my mobile so it must be laptop related. Not sure which security systems to check, laptop, browser or Norton . Any ideas? Many thanks Jeremy

I tried to visit a website on a private network.

Firefox threw up a security warning about how the web page uses TLSv1.0.

I clicked on the "Enable TLS v1.0" button because I wanted to temporarily view the web page, so that I can look at the TLS certificate to debug an unrelated issue about the cert chain on this site.

Now I want to go back to the default settings, where Firefox blocks TLSv1.0.

How do I do that?

In about:config I looked at security.tls.version.min but it's still on the original value of 3. Yet Firefox is still letting me view that particular page over TLSv1.0 without the security warning.

This lockwise related feature requires one to enter a computer password/pin etc to be able to see saved login passwords. This is something I have always wished FF had (like every other browser does) but was always told that it is not necessary or is silly since it is not very secure or some other nonsense. But is is useful since it makes snooping difficult which is good enough.

Anyway, obviously FF has come around to this viewpoint... but after finding that without warning it is no longer functioning on my browser and resetting firefox and restarts and everything, I see on the page below "This feature will be disabled for both macOS and Windows in Firefox version 76 and 77. Mozilla is planning improvements to this feature in Firefox 78."

Bizarre since according to the article it starts working in version 76. Starts working in 76 but has been disabled in 76 (plus 77 for good measure).

What? My question is why was this disabled for what's likely to be a while and is there anyway to override it? Can I bring it back with a pref change? Thanks!

I am trying to help my daughter figure out a problem she has with Firefox on her Windows 10 laptop. She has the latest version of Firefox installed.

Every time she starts Firefox, it starts in a private window. Even after closing it and opening a "normal" window, the choice to open the tabs from the last session is dimmed. There is no history.

I have checked her privacy and security settings and it's at the default position. It is not set to open in a private window, and it is not set to forget history.

I am baffled!

When I am logged in to my financial account and try to go to my Balances page, Firefox blocks the redirect. I cannot find any way to stop this, so have to hit the Allow button every time. Seems like a strange place for Firefox to be blocking a page from loading, especially since I rarely get that behavior anywhere else.

Hi all,

I'm a MacOS (v.10.15.6) user, and I've been trying to get rid of the "Your browser is being managed by your organisation" on FireFox (v.80.0.1) without any success. This is the detail of the "Enterprise Policy" that's blocking: ExtensionSettings {"{443830f0-1fff-4f9a-aa1e-444bafbc7319}":{"installation_mode":"blocked"},"{02274e0c-d135-45f0-8a9c-32b35110e10d}":{"installation_mode":"blocked"}}

What I have tried: - I have uninstalled and deleted all Avast (& other antivirus related apps - I just kept "Clean my mac" but I suppose that's not the core of the issue?) (binned & through a ~/Library/ search) - I quit all apps that seemed suspicious in the Activity Monitor - I have unistalled the previous version of FireFox (& deleted all packages found on ~/Library/ and reinstalled all again

Note: the extension seems to be applied only on FireFox as my Chrome browser seems to be running normally so far.

I've restared my Mac every time I'd do something to make sure it'd sync somehow but nothing works. I still get teh same "Your browser is being managed by your organisation" on my latest FireFox version (v.80.0.1).

What can I do? Thanks a lot!

Greetings! Each and every time I close out Firefox, it deletes my pop-up approved exceptions list. There are two sites I visit regularly that use pop-up windows for displaying information, and if I add them to the exceptions list, they are gone (along with any others) the next time I open Firefox. This doesn't seem like the type of thing that should get deleted with clear history on close settings. It is happening with version 80.0.1, and happened with the prior version. Any thoughts on what might be causing this and/or solutions would be most appreciated.

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

Is there anyplace I can compliment the developers of FireFox v80 on Android for the ingenious upgrade to access of saved login data, that makes it impossible to copy/paste login information from the settings into a login form?

The old way, that was no good, made it possible to copy from saved login data to a login form when prefill does not happen due to subtle differences in domain names used on mobile devices vs. desktop devices. Before v80. the saved login data would be in one tab and the login form in another, so you could switch between the two, carrying the username and password in the clipboard for pasting into the form.

The new way, which is much better, makes that impossible, because the saved login data is not displayed within a tab, but instead is displayed in a four-layer-deep overlay, which blows away the login form on sites using javascript-driven popups for login forms.

The net effect is what used to be possible with a hassle now is impossible. I guess this new way is a bigger hassle, but the new way still is better, otherwise it would not be new, right?

Is there a way to communicate this directly to the developers?

FF 80.0.1

Not sure when it started, but it has been happening for a LONG, long time. I clear data (cache) with a check mark, but clear cookies manually. It always - and I mean *always* goes into *FF not responding* and takes up to a couple of minutes to clear. Often, I have to press clear Save Changes several times.

The only time it goes quickly and without stopping (Not Responding) is if I clear a dozen cookies or less.

Is there a solution?

Thank you.

Firefox continues to stymie my efforts to go to a linked page. It automatically says " Firefox has prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page". Heck, I asked for the link and do it all the time. Yet I can't figure out how to defeat this option.

Yes, I know I can take the extra step and just override it when it appears. But I'd like to think I can avoid having to do this all the time.

Thanks for any suggestions
