Hello My name is Jutta and I am working as a consultant. I have different certificates installed on my computer and in the Firefox. I want to choose each time which certificate to use, but the browser is always automatically starting with the last used certificate and I don´t know how to change that. Even closing Firefox and starting again does not help. So I have to use Edge to work with certificates, which I don´t like too much. Any idea how to change that? Thank you for your help Jutta

The current issue is when disconnecting from our large internal VPN and opening Firefox. Firefox is able to bypass the system proxy setting and reach the internet unhindered, but it should be blocked. We have Chrome, Edge and IE where the internet is unreachable as it uses the system proxy when disconnecting from the VPN. The PAC file I see in my Windows proxy settings it looks fine as far as I can tell.

Looking online there are some old references to this behaviour in BugZilla: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1207798 but nothing more recent. Not sure why it is bypassing the proxy after a timeout or disconnect, but it is consistently reproducible.

The settings are auto set to "use system proxy settings" in the FF options.

If there is some current info on this weird problem please let us know.

                      Thank you..

Security Error Code - Domain Name doesn't match server's certificate

Hi all, hoping someone can help with this very specific issue...

The question: Is there any way to satisfy Firefox's third party routing so that a secondary unattached domain can be redirected to a subfolder of another domain?

The explanation of the issue: A client of mine has a site built on Wix, with a domain held by GoDaddy. The domain was on GoDaddy servers in order to redirect to a specific page on the Wix site instead of the home page (Wix does not support this option using its own DNS servers).

They noticed that *only* when using Firefox on Windows 10 was there a security error code that blocked access to the site, giving the following message:

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.minditrimblementoring.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Learn more…

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for www.minditrimblementoring.com. The certificate is only valid for the following names: shortener.secureserver.net, www.shortener.secureserver.net Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN View Certificate

--

This was not able to be replicated on the same system on Chrome, Edge, or iPhone Safari browsers. They had to click "Advanced" and then "Accept the Risk and Continue"

There is no error message for the actual root domain of the website. From what I understand, Firefox reroutes the DNS to a partner service for security (in this case shortener.secureserver.net), which is not happy with the redirect setup.

For now, I have switched over to Wix servers so that no one trying to access the site receives security warnings.

The client would like to retain the ability to redirect to these to specific pages on the site, but they are concerned about people being turned away from getting a big ol' security risk warning if they are using Firefox.

So here's my question again (so you don't have to scroll back up): Is there any way to satisfy Firefox's third party routing so that a secondary unattached domain can be redirected to a subfolder of another domain?

Thank you for any insight - this is *not* my realm, as I help people with branding and design work and am not a developer / coder.

Locked Account

I have a long-standing Firefox account under a primary email ("email1") with a secondary email (email2). I've gotten locked out. Firefox won't let me sign in under email2; it requires email1 for sign in.

For email1, I know the password but have set up two-factor authentication. I have my authentication device and authenticator app. But, perversely, there is no app entry for Firefox. I have Microsoft's app but I have used it only for Microsoft-related sites.

How the Devil I could have enabled 2-factor authentication but lost the Firefox entry for it in the app, I neither know nor understand.

I have access to both email1 and email2. I know all the answers to every secret question I've ever answered. I know everything about me there is to know. I am me after al.

Is there any information, any combination of facts, that might satisfy Firefox that I own my account and let me turnoff 2-factor authentication?

For example, I have both Chrome and Safari accounts set up with the same username and emails, and have access to them. My user name is absolutely unique across the internet. I guarantee that no one other than me has ever used it or could ever duplicate the scheme I used to create it. I have so many accounts set up under that username that it must be patently apparent that the one at Firefox in that username is mine. Perhaps that would satisfy Firefox that I own the same-configured account at Firefox.

Can I get the attention of a live person at Firefox, one that can reason independently, one that can recognize the obvious and certain fact that the account belongs to me?

What can i do? Please don't tell me nothing. I don't care about losing the data. I just want my email addresses freed up so I can open another account.

This address is restricted

This address uses a network port which is normally used for purposes other than Web browsing. Firefox has canceled the request for your protection.

I gather this feature has been there for sometime but I have not seen it before Ver 86. I frequently use non standard ports for IoT devices etc. I found some info on forums regarding installing a network.security.ports.banned.override entry in the config but this did not work. It also implies I have to list each port. I would prefer to unblock ALL ports.

After the certificates on my corporate PKI smart card were renewed, I am no longer able to login to any of the web sites that used to work before.

The error I get in Firefox is:

An error occurred during a connection to XXXXXXXX. SSL peer was unable to negotiate an acceptable set of security parameters.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE_ALERT

This used to work fine before the certificates on my smart card were renewed.

The DLL file that accesses my smart card is loaded and functioning properly in Firefox under Security Devices.

In Chrome, everything still works fine, only Firefox is failing.

I would rather not post the problem publicly. Most organizations have a way to log security exploits in a way that they are not public.

The long and the short of the symptom, however, is that I could see all of my passwords without entering the master password. That's probably something that you don't want to happen.

When I install Extensions, many of them want "access your data on all websites" or some version of it. For a completely unknown extension I am not likely to be comfortable with that, *if the extension can send that data to external endpoints on the web*. But many add-ons don't need that permission. For example, an add-on that just adjusts styles on a webpage doesn't need to contact the Internet at all. (It would still need to check for updates, but I assume Firefox would do that and it wouldn't require granting carte-blanche internet access to the Extention).

I am generally comfortable with an extension contacting the Internet if it doesn't have any of my data (so that nothing privacy-relevant can be sent). I'd also be comfortable with an extension having major access to data if the data can *never* be sent anywhere - it is just on my machine. But Firefox doesn't seem to distinguish between these two extremely different privacy cases.

Is there some plan to implement this, or else some reason why it is not done? Is the technical challenge extreme for some reason?

I (and I suspect many others) could use a lot more extensions comfortably if this kind of privacy protection was available.

I am a Senior Visison Disabled Veteran. I have used various Firefox Browsers over the past few years on many different devices.

I have used the same firefox account and password and username/email during that time.

My background was in electronics, E.E., Sci, etc. When I was in the Mil-Intel-Indust complex I came to know all electronic systems starting in the 1950's where backdoored. So I have tried to be carefull when setting up and using Firefox browsers. I thought I had delebritly set it up to NOT RECORD any email, username, or password EVER ! To prevent my info from leaking out.

Today I downloaded a free copy of NordPass from their main website. Part of the set up is an option to import from other browsers, etc all emails/usernames and passwords to store them in one location under one password in NordPass.

When I seclected the "Secure Notes" for firefox I got a BIG SUPPRIZE ! There were 11 entries. Yes there was my bank account password and username my firefox account password and username my google account password and username etc and two entries I am in the proccess of trying to locate and find out who they are ! just two urls and usernames and passwords that I never did create or visit thoses urls.

I am requesting your help in deleting this info from my account and keeping all my book marks intact.

I am also interested in preventing this from ever happening again.

Any ideas ?

Hello I'm using firefox 86.0.1 in Manjaro-Linux I have activated https only mode in security settings. Most sites are ok, but some sites are available in http and https mode. Maybe I have accessed them in the past with http when the sites did not support https.

I'm looking for an option to disable http access if https is available. Looking in the help and many sites I found that it should be possible to deactivate http access per site (see screenshot firefox-help) But if I click on the "lock" icon. I get a complete different window. No option to enable/disable access.

How to handle this problem in firefox 86?

I have enabled notifications in Google Calendar and allowed them in Firefox browser for MacOS. But I am still not getting popups like I would expect. The sound plays notifying me I have an upcoming event but there is nothing visual to tell me this other than the sound icon that appears during the sound on the tab. Is this how Google Calendar is supposed to work? Tab switching is also enabled but I don't get switched to Google Calendar. I leave it open all the time in a pinned app, so I don't see why there would be an issue here.

Please find my attached images where I think things are correctly set up.
