I am not sure what is happening but across my devices I sync Firefox on my saved password settings keep getting tuned off. I pretty much have to turn them on every time I start Firefox and it is quite annoying. I have searched this forum some and found solutions that relate to trend micro password manager but I don't have that installed. I am running the latest version of Firefox on mac.

I think this site is relatively safe. It hosts replays of company earnings conference calls with analysts.

http://public.viavid.com/player/index.php?id=140568

The page loads. Some form fields can be filled in, but not the one for email. The insecure connection icon appears.

Is the connection is insecure, why does the page load even partially?

Or is this page an example of mixed content blocking (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/mixed-content-blocking-firefox)? If so, why is there is no option to bypass the blocked connection?

Or is something else happening here?

Many thanks

I clicked on the shield to turn off "enhanced protection". When I clicked on shield to turn the protection back on the window has no toggle switch to turn it back on. I went thru the help area and all I found was: "Follow the same process to turn Enhanced Tracking Protection back on." How do I turn it back on for individual sites?

I take my privacy very seriously and have disabled a large number of Firefox features which erode my privacy, including geo.enabled, dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled, dom.battery.enabled, and many more.

Today I've just found a setting I've never noticed before which makes me really nervous: geo.provider.ms-windows-location

Can anyone please tell me what this does? Is it new? Why doesn't Mozilla have a page/resource explaining what all the preferences do and how to use them?

I was just using YouTube, clicked some button, and a pop-up video appeared that I could drag anywhere on the screen, even outside the browser window. It took me a while to realize that it's actually a pop-up window with no border, no file menu, no address bar! just a floating video with no border at all! Very creepy!

What is going on here? How can this be possible? Why is Firefox allowing this? Surely if sites are allowed to make windows pop up without borders, it represents a huge security risk? They could pretend to be anything - a message from Firefox, a Windows error message, anything at all. I am so concerned about this! I presume this is a new feature of Firefox and it needs to be stopped immediately!

Lately, Firefox seems to be giving more and more control over to web developers, and taking away more of the users' rights and security. It is worrying and I don't like where things are going. Why can't Firefox just concentrate on being a great browser instead of allowing developers to do new things?

I use the dropdown in the search bar on Firefox (called "Awesome Bar," I think?). However, there are search engines which are clearly pinned. For example, @amazon or "Search with Amazon" or "Search with Google."

How can I delete them?

I have searched through this issue in the Community, and the solutions there are not available to me. I cannot "Hold" the item, and press delete. I cannot "right-click" on the item. I cannot highlight the choice and delete, either through right-clicking or hitting the delete key.

Please advise. I want the other choices to be available.

Thanks.

I use 2 or 3 websites (in the UK) regularly which allows me to check local stock of items I want to buy and then collect. I use Page info and change the Allow Location / Permissions to do this. Every time I restart FF or re start my Mac or FF does an update these chosen settings are lost and reverts to default. How can I make this setting a permanent thing, it's a bit irritating not to be able to Save this preference. (FF v78.0.2esr / Mac 10.11.6)
