While trying to understand why maps.google.com would not connect I opened "about:networking" and looked at the http list and noticed that maps.google.com and "ocsp.digicert.com where not encrypted using https.

Can anyone tell me why https on FF which is configured to use D.O.H. does not show all connections using port 443? Enclosed is the list.

I have configured FF to block all cookies under "Browser Privacy" the custom setting allows "Choose which trackers and scripts to block. and I selected "all cookies". Knowing that all cookies will be blocked I logged into office 365 and allowed manually cookies through "view page info" I then selected "set cookies" to allow expecting full access to office 365 mail, but this did not occur. What happened is I logged into office 365 and could see the icons and my login name but could not read the mail.

Office 365 gave the message "we couldn't sign you in please try again" yet I could see my log in name and the office 365 icons for mail, calendar etc.. just not the actual data. If I allow cookies in Browser privacy (which i take it allows cookies always) it woks.

I bring this up because it seems like something is missing in cookies that is not represented in FF.What is the difference between browser privacy cookies and allowing it through view page permissions? Can anyone offer an explanation?

I have an ssh tunnel that I am using to access an AWS ElasticSearch instance running in AWS, so that I can see Kibana in my browser. The tunnel is necessary because access is only allowed through a specific jump/gateway host that we have setup (this is very standard).

I used to be able to access this just fine with http://localhost:9200/_plugin/kibana But then ElasticSearch updated something to require that the 'HOST' header contain the original host, ie: search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com

Ok, no matter, I'll just add an entry to my hosts file: 127.0.0.1 search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com

Now, I can curl just fine, and using Chrome works just fine too: http://search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com:9200/_plugin/kibana

But every time I try to use Firefox, it replaces the http with https, which obviously doesn't work because the tunnel is to port 80.


Yes, I realize that *.amazonaws.com is owned by Amazon and they have an SSL cert.

I have read a similar ticket, here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1209387 The acceptable answer in that ticket seemed to be to use a different domain for local development, which shouldn't be too hard to do, but in my case this is not a usable answer.

I should be able to override Firefox and tell it not to change a URL that I have put into it, at least for specific sites.

All was good until sometime today. FF 84.0.2 W10 up to date. Previously, when browsing FB marketplace, i could send a message about an item for sale. That send message button is now greyed out. The messenger button on the top right of my screen used to open a dropdown/popup that gave me a summary of my messages. That no longer works. I have been thru all kinds of settings randomly on FF and FB to try and correct the issue but i cannot figure out what is going on. I have tried turning Ublock on and off but that has not helped either. The only access i now have to messenger is to open it separately. I have not changed any FB settings. I did not change any FF settings myself other than trying to find out what could be doing this and exploring ublock for possibilities as that seemed the most likely culprit. Can anyone shed some light on what the issue is.

Unfortunately, when I uncheck "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites", Firefox will stop "Autofill logins and passwords", even the saved ones.

Does anyone know a workaround?

Hello,

My firefox does't open the "New Private Window". Whenever I install firefox for the first time, the New private windows doesn't show any problem. But when I proceed, I can find out I can no longer open the new private window. Technically, the website opens, but it does not show the "purple-coloured eye glasses".

I think my computer is infected by malware because my searching histories are also saved in the incognito mode of Google Chrome.

Would you be able to fix this problem by updating the software?

Can anyone tell me, or teach me how to tell, what's happening on the website 'http://www.syscodiscountfoodcenter.com' on the "Products" button? Whenever I click on it, the address bar just becomes 'http://www.syscodiscountfoodcenter.com/#' but nothing happens. I suspect that this is being blocked by some type of security or protection blocker, but I don't know how to determine what.

Ultimately, what I'd like to do is determine exactly what protection is being violated, then turn off this specific protection for just this website, so that I could order products. Can anyone show me a link or page that would describe how to determine what's happening?

Thank you for your help and advice.

I've been trying to access some resources hosted locally with a web extension for testing, but I've been encountering CORS errors. I've added localhost to the permissions field of the extension's manifest.json, but I still encounter the CORS errors. I saw that bugs 1220810 and 1488740 addressed similar bugs in FF84, but Firefox still won't let me send the requests. If it helps at all, I've been trying to access the resources hosted on localhost from an https context, but I was under the impression that those bugs should have fixed that issue?

Ideally I wouldn't need to implement having the server respond with the CORS headers since it only seems to be a problem with Firefox in a local context. Accessing the local resources through Chrome works, and accessing the resources through the internet with the domain name in the permissions field of a production build of the extension's manifest.json works in Firefox. Is there a way to make Firefox disregard CORS enforcement for localhost for temporary extensions?

Recently I logged out from Firefox my account, and when I tried to login it asked me to enter the 6 digit verification code from my authentication application. It looks like this comes from the 2-steps authentication method. I don't remember I used this procedure before, and I don't know what is the authentication app. I have this account since 2014 and now I am not able to login to it. Is there is any way to reset the sitting through email? Please help. Note: I created another account in order to be able to ask this question.

I tried to play a program on the CBS site; I've done this two or three times a year for many years with no problems, but this time the site said it could not load its ads (error 113), and therefore would not play the show. I've always watched the ads before, never a problem until now. I checked the icon for Adblock Plus, and it said that something had caused it to reset to default; it said I could fix this by removing and reinstalling Adblock Plus, which I did, but that made no difference. I don't know what default is, or what I had before (a friend set up my computer for me, so I don't know details), but I just want the CBS site to be able to load its ads so I can watch the program. What do I do? Thanks.

Currently on Firefox Version 85.0 (64-bit) using with Windows 10 Pro

Until recently (before Firefox updated versions) my cookies, cache and history, were automatically deleted on exit from Firefox with no problem. Now I can not delete them for some reason. Even when I try manually to "Clear Data" and also manually clear all History (all sub-menus checked to be cleared). When I restart and open an online newsletter, normally I have to sign in. I don NOT have passwords checked to be saved in FF options and never did. But now with the new version it just auto signs me into that website. I do NOT want my passwords saved/remembered, nor any of my other info, etc! It is really annoying and not secure if FF is now saving information we don't want it to! What is going on here? How do I resolve and get back the way I had it before the update? Please advise. Thanks in advance!

NOTE: I don't want to start from scratch by clearing out Firefox totally or messing with my profile. I have too much customization to start over from scratch. (That would be like asking somebody to reinstall Windows entirely when something minor goes haywire!)

I’d appreciate an explanation from someone who knows the background about what happens when websites pass information to each another.

I am using Vanguard’s website, which is the only one (out of those that I use) that prevents me from blocking tracking content and which also forces me to allow social media tracking. If I do not allow this, the website doesn’t work.

I attached two files: a capture of content tracking and a capture of the social media tracking shown by Firefox when I use Vanguard's website.

I would like to understand the following:

1. Is Vanguard the one enabling all of this tracking? If so, do they program it into their website? 2. Is there usually some kind of agreement between Vanguard and the 3rd parties and social media companies that Vanguard passes information to? 3. Is there any financial benefit to a company like Vanguard to do this?

Thanks.

Does anyone know of a work around to enable clipboard API functionality over a local intranet without a public domain name?

  • I use a local server application with a http interface on my home Intranet, accessed via FireFox (a web browser). I do not want the program to be accessed from the internet, and don't have and don't think I want a public domain for my local Intranet server. In the past I have been accessing it from Firefox by book marking the IP address and port.
  • The program has recently changed from using Document.execCommand() method to the modern asynchronous Clipboard API.
  • The clipboard API in Firefox defaults to requiring the host is accessed via https (appropriate for public facing internet access) or the host server is run on the same machine as the web browser (127.0.0.1 or localhost).
  • From a security perspective I'm not convinced I need encryption between computer in my home networks (if that traffic is being intercepted to spy on or modify my clipboard, then my private network has already been severely compromised).

As a result of the clipboard API conventions, the program's clipboard functionality no longer works for me. I have tried

  • looking for a Firefox exception settings, to enable clipboard API functionally over http (vs https) for specific local IP, but could not find how to do that in FireFox
  • I have tried installing Caddy but without a domain name I couldn't get it to reverse-proxy to https

Am I missing an easy solution or do local servers need public addresses now.
