Hi,

I receive your emails on security (How to avoid wire fraud, spot spyware, smash spam and more) and my concern is holding all my passwords in Firefox Lockwise on my Windows devices which are synched. If someone or some process gains access to one of my PC's they would also I presume gain access to all my passwords. Is this true? If so, can I implement password access to my Firefox Lockwise passwords on Windows machines?

Thanks for your thoughts and hopefully reply.

best regards, Terry

According to FAQ of Caching Mechanism (mozilla.org), it is by design to cache “documents specifically marked for "not caching" through-- "Pragma: no-cache" or a "Cache-control:" directive specified as an HTTP response header” in memory to improve performance. So, it is possible for you to view sensitive information from the Firefox memory cache after you log out an web application and keep Firefox open.

Good afternoon!

We need to add a "Saved Password Exception" to Firefox on several remote computers on our network (Non-Domain). We do not want to block the saving of all passwords, but want to specify a few websites to never ask or prompt to save.

I was hoping I could do this with Mozilla.cfg or Policies.json, and distribute it over the network to each PC. All I have found is a way of blocking all site password save-prompts with "signon.rememberSignons" in the Mozilla.cfg.

Any suggestions on how to set exceptions for specific sites with either using the Mozilla.cfg or Policies.json? Otherwise I may need to edit the firefox configuration manyally on each PC.

Suggestions?

Thanks everyone!

Good afternoon, We have a large quantity of PC's that we need to add a Pop-Up exception to for Firefox.

Is there a way to add this desired website pop-up exception via a script remotely? I know where to go to manually add a Pop-Up exception (Settings/Privacy & security/Allowed Website Pop-Up's). But is there a way to script this? Can this even be locked with a PrefLock line in a Mozilla.cfg file? I did a little digging and did not see anything. That would be ideal.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Please note that the remote machines are NOT a part of a domain. But I have complete connectivity to them as an administrator on the same network.

Almost 4-5 months I can't download anything with suspicious code inside (repack or keygen, or test compiled file, 4ex. from Github) cause FF defense blocks it every time even when it's disabled! And even when I manually allow to download this zipped file, I get an error message of damaged archive file format! FF crashes and damages my files!!! (Don't try to point on my other defense software - I don't use it and everything is disabled, and other browsers works good). This is very important bug for me, so I already think to change and migrate to Opera or another browser.

There are extensions that I am not using 99% of the time or use them at one website.

There a two options:

  • Make UX more friendly: add button to list an extensions with checklist to disable OR add "Disable extension" option inside menu between "Manage extension" and "Remove extension" (by right mouse click at extension icon at Toolbar.
  • Be cool if Mozilla Team will develop mechanism to switch between extension modes. As example I create my default exts mode (ublock, firefox notes, multi-account containers), but also time by time I save webpages by SingleFile extension, also I use proxy extensions so I create list for it. Lists may be as additional (default + proxy) as independent from scratch (proxy only).

Why? Privacy by isolation processes in the browser.

When working in Ancestry.com I am having a problem when I try to upload pictures. I get a banner across the top saying my Local Storage is disabled. I have deleted history and about everything it has said to try but to no avail. This just started about 2-3 weeks ago. Before that it has always worked correctly. Not sure it this was due to Microsoft 11 loaded, newer version of Firefox or something. It is causing me to have to go to Google Chrome which has other issues with screen prints which work much better in Firefox. How can his be fixed.

Hi,

I have been using Firefox sync for many years now. I just got a new computer and when I tried to connect with my account, I received a message saying Firefox has locked my account.

Would you please fix this asap? I use your browser to work and not having my account back would force me to switch to Chromium, which I don't want to. Please note my account and my email address are both legit. Thanks

Hi,

I found some discussion related (https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/disable-add-ons-on-specific-website/33693) but no solution yet.

This is imho a big flaw in the privacy of users.

There are trivial cases, for example if I use a YouTube downloader plugin, I obviously want it to monitor my browsing ONLY when I'm on youtube.com...

And there are some critical cases: when I browse my web banking, or when I go on some trading website, I don't want my financial operations to be at risk because of an add-on that is very useful everywhere but on those site.

However, I don't want to exclude all the add-ons for those website too, that would be just too much.

I think there's already a coding base in place, since you can disable each add-on when using private windows. This could be enhanced by having a system of whitelist/blacklist instead. And this feature would actually make more sense than using a private window.

Another way would be to have this feature on per container, instead of per website, than would work well too.

People have different activities, and some requires useful plugins, that are very specific. I mean Keepass's add-on (for example) is useful everywhere, but many add-ons are related to one activity at a time.

For example, if I'm a marketer and want to analyze website, I'll use add-ons for having stats on metadata or keywords or even real time reports from Alexa or from AliExpress, etc...

But when I'm reading my email, I'm not happy those add-ons can see my data.

That would be tedious to disable all those plugins every time I change activity, especially since we are productive humans so obviously we need to alternate those activities doing multitask all the time.

And the private window option is not flexible enough for that kind of multitasking, when containers are.

I hope this helps everyone understand clearly why I think my request is not only a real user need, but also currently a flaw in users privacy since most people will not trade the comfort of their add-ons for some privacy concern they don't always understand...

I know this is some kind of feature request more than ask for help, but https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/FirefoxInput/ is out of service so I don't know where to address my concern here.

Thanks for helping me pushing this idea forward.
