Why are there so many Google tools embedded in Firefox? Many of us don't trust Google at all, and in the current environment of increasing surveillance, it seems very strange to find many Google processes in Firefox.

A msg. suddenly appeared at the top of my ff general settings page saying "your organization is managing your browser". Upon clicking on it it appears that Chrome has taken over most of my ff settings and disabled some of them. I have NO organization; I am retired and have a personal computer that only I use for personal things. I have run numerous anti malware programs that have found nothing. I have restored the computer to a much earlier time. I chose Firefox, NOT Chrome. Please help me get rid of this. And please don't assume I have knowledge as I am old and not very computer literate so if you could use simple terms I can understand that would be much appreciated. If no help, what can I do next to get some. Thank you I am using Windows 7 home premium on an older Dell business machine.

Hello,

When I'm trying to import passwords from other browsers (Safari or Brave) or CSV files generated by Safari and Brave nothing happens. There's not even an option to import the passwords from Safari, look at the attached screenshot. From Brave however the option is available, but even if I check that box nothing happens when I do the import. Do you know why? I've tried it on both Windows and macOS.

I've had a problem where things I 'haven't copied are being copied and pasted. Sometimes pasted in the correct place. For instance, I review my password manager to view a date, return to a webpage and start typing the date I viewed and it is automatically pasted into the date field while I'm typing the date!!! How, if at all is this possible?

How can we change the default behavior for ETP? I do not want it automatically enabled on all of my tabs and windows by default. If I need it, I would like to set it myself.

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.

Hi, I'm unable to change my Firefox Account password.

I navigate to the Manage Account page, click Change next to Password and enter my old and new password and nothing happens. The page gives no indication that the change has applied and my password remains the same.

I have also tried this in a private window, on Google Chrome and on my phone and the same thing happens.

The push notifications from allowed sites are enabled in the privacy and security settings, but the little box that's supposed to pop up isn't popping up. I depend on these quite a bit on YouTube, so I need them to work. Any ideas on what might be blocking them? If you could give me a list of things to try, I'd be very grateful. Thanks in advance!

Hello, im a web developer and have come accross a problem which only occurs in the firefox browser.

When i design a website, i use the www version of it always, and have redircts for all other instances, eg; mydomain.co.uk > https://www.mydomain.co.uk http://www.mydomain.co.uk > https://www.mydomain.co.uk https://mydomain.co.uk > https://www.mydomain.co.uk

So they all end up at the secure www version of the website. This is done in the .htaccess file and works great in Chrome, Edge, Explorer etc just not firefox.

In firefox i get the error

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to boothandco.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 web site, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the web site’s administrator about the problem.

Ignoring it then procceeds to the full https://www. but that warning screen will be enough to put potential visitors off no doubt.

Is there an "easy fix" for this or is the only way to solve the problem to use up more SAN's and double up on www and non-www versions of each website?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks Chris

I set my primary password yesterday since I was leaving my laptop with a service person. Today, Firefox tells me the password is incorrect. I am entirely confident I know what I intended the password to be, and it seems wholly unrealistic that I made the same typo twice in one entry, yet I've trial and errored almost every possible typo I can think would cause this. I am really not sure what to do now, all my accounts are locked behind a password that is not the one I set less than 24 hours ago. What can I do?
