Firefox and DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH)

Q: Firefox and DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH)

Generally, I don't 'fix' what I don't understand.

What are the TSG recommendations/thoughts regarding Mozilla's DoH?

Bleeping computer has some negativity about it in an article here:
Google Unveils DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) Plan, Mozilla's Faces Criticism
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/ne...over-https-doh-plan-mozillas-faces-criticism/
Here is the Mozilla blog article discussing coming changes in regards to DoH:
What?s next in making Encrypted DNS-over-HTTPS the Default
https://blog.mozilla.org/futurereleases/2019/09/06/whats-next-in-making-dns-over-https-the-default/

I've never changed my DNS settings. They are handled by my ISP, Spectrum, with no issues I'm aware of.

Is this Mozilla DoH a good thing?
Downsides?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi guys and gals,

New to this forum, so I hope it the right place for and way of explaining this problem.

I just bought my first PC, which is pretty awesome after having worked on laptops for years.
Here is the configuration:
- i7 4790K
- MSI Z97 Gaming 5
- MSI GTX 980
- Corsair Vengeance Pro Red 16GB 1600 MHz CL9
- Corsair RM750
- Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD

This is also my first system with Windows 8.

Now here is the problem:
After installing my favorite browser Firefox, for some reason it won't load google.com properly.
It automatically tries to load the https version of google, which makes sense.
But it gives my the "Untrusted connection error" (but then in Dutch, so I hope it is correctly translated).
When I delete the "s" and try http it loads fine, but then my search results are different from my laptop with Windows 7 and only the categories "Web" and "Images" are shown.
The same happens in Internet Explorer.

I have tried the solutions as described on the Mozilla support pages, but without any luck.

I hope someone on this forum can help me out.

Thanks in advance and best regards,

T

A:google.com not loading with https, Firefox and IE

Just found out that Internet Explorer has similar problem on my Windows 7 laptop.

Source--------- http://www.ghacks.net/2014/10/31/avasts-https-scanning-interferes-with-firefox-and-other-programs/
Avast released its 2015 lineup recently and one of the new features that all of its antivirus programs ship with is HTTPS Scanning.

It enables the program to detect and decrypt protected traffic using its web filtering component. This alone is highly problematic considering that the program is tapping right into protected data streams but the current implementation is causing all kinds of issues on top of that.

Firefox users for example may notice that the browser won't close anymore because of Avast's HTTPS Scanning feature. This may not happen all the time when Firefox is closed but users reported that it is happening frequently.

That's however not the only issue that Firefox users may experience if Avast is installed on the computer system the browser is running on.

Firefox's add-on update check may be blocked by the security software as well.

The Mozilla Firefox web browser is not the only program that is affected by issues though. Spotify's Web Player may not be able to connect to Spotify for example with Avast 2015 running on the system.

That is OK with me as i do not like Avast anyway.

I've had a strange issue that may have been caused by upgrading to Noscript 5.1.6. I closed my Firefox earlier today and shortly afterwards re-opened it, with the notification that Noscript had updated. However I found that many other websites had become inaccessible. Paypal.com brought up a screen with a message like "found, return to gb/home", www.bbc.co.uk gave a "301 moved permanently" message, and many other websites only opened as blank pages. Closing and re-opening the browser several times did not fix the problem. My first suspicion was that Noscript's update had caused an issue, so I disabled it, which fixed the issue immediately. After re-enabling it there was still no problem.
 
In retrospect the URLs I was using were missing the "HTTPS" prefix that is automatically added (my link to "www.bbc.co.uk" ordinarily sends me to "https://www.bbc.co.uk/", "paypal.com" to "https://www.paypal.com/gb/home", etc), which makes me wonder if there was an issue with redirects.
Oddly, one website that loaded fine when all others I tried failed - https://www.redlettermedia.com/ - now returns a "Secure Connection Failed" message - "SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length." Notably, this also happens when I try and access it on my phone, outside of my home network.
 
I've run a scan with MBAM for good measure, which turned up nothing. The problem appears to be fixed apart from that one website; can anyone shed some light as to what may have happene... Read more

Hi all;

I have an odd issue with Firefox & Windows 10, with accessing HTTPS websites.
The sites are very very slow to load and others do not complete the load cycle.
I've had this issue for months now.

Just tried the newly released Firefox v50 ... same issues.
Also use Portable-Firefox:
-On the Windows 10 pc = https sites load very slow.
-If I move to my other PC (using Vista), all sites load fine. Without any changes to my Portable-Firefox setup.

When I use Microsoft's Edge browser all sites load fine.

There seems to be a conflict between the Toshiba Laptop, Windows 10 & Firefox in loading HTTPS websites very slowly.

This is what I have tried so far in relation to Windows 10:

-Changed Proxy settings (within Firefox) to each setting
-Flushed DNS cache
-Checked HOSTS file for any entries to those websites
-Removed entries from Windows Firewall
-Disabled Firewall and Anti-Virus
-Checked for Malware,Spyware,etc,etc
-Booted into Windows 10 SafeMode-Network Enabled
My head is getting sore now. Any suggestions

As I mentioned my Portable-Firefox installation works fine on other pcs, including Windows 10 versions, but not on this system (Toshiba laptop & Windows 10). Though MS Edge browser works perfectly fine.
Some of the https sites:

https://au.yahoo.com/?p=us ((loads very slow, with some pics & videos not loading at all. even news articles not loading at all))

Hey guys.

First of all let me apologize for putting this in the XP forum. I'm tired and frustrated after trying all day to fix this problem so I'm desperate now and figured I'd get a quicker reply here. Also not sure if it's exclusively a problem with my connection/browsers.

Okay so my problem is that out of the blue google chrome stopped viewing pages. I get "Error 102" when I try to view a page. The annoying thing is it appears that Chrome isn't even attempting to load anything it just instantly displays this error. It was working literally 5 minutes before this error first appeared. I was using Firefox at the same time (I have different passwords saved for different sites on different browsers) so I have no idea if viewing something on FF could of caused this.

What I've tried so far:

- Making sure I have "automatically detect settings" enabled in every browser while making sure "use a proxy" is disabled.

- Disabling all anti virus/firewall software and making sure Chrome is a trusted application.

- Uninstalling Chrome and reinstalling it

- Making sure nothing appears to be blocked router wise

- Checking and resetting hosts file

- Releasing and renewing IP

- Make sure SSL and T-something is enabled in browser settings

- Currently running a Malware scan with MalwareBytes but surely any malware would simply change my browsers proxy settings which I've already checked.

Hello.
I'm running W10 and IE11. Earlier my internet connection went down but now has come back up. There is a noise problem on my line and the disconnection is expected behaviour. But, since the connection came back my browser will only access https capable sites, no http. This is a pain because a lot of my Favourites are http only. As a matter of fact, even some https sites wont download. There are far too many of these instances to be just sites going down etc. Does this sound like a setting has changed somewhere, or maybe could the poor connection be causing an issue, even though everything was working as normal until the system went down for a while, and the noise problem is not new.

Oh dear, nope, it's not true, https connections are just for passwords, websites come across encrypted in https mode and decrypted when the site gets a handshake from your pc, it's just a more secure way of entering form info and passwords, but to be honest, if your computer isn't secure on the virus front, the https connection is irrelevant.

Security has always been critical to the web, but challenges involved in site migration have inhibited HTTPS adoption for several years. In the interest of a safer web for all, at Google we?ve worked alongside many others across the online ecosystem to better understand and address these challenges, resulting in real change. A web with ubiquitous HTTPS is not the distant future. It?s happening now, with secure browsing becoming standard for users of Chrome.

Today, we?re adding a new section to the HTTPS Report Card in our Transparency Report that includes data about how HTTPS usage has been increasing over time. More than half of pages loaded and two-thirds of total time spent by Chrome desktop users occur via HTTPS, and we expect these metrics to continue their strong upward trajectory.

As the remainder of the web transitions to HTTPS, we?ll continue working to ensure that migrating to HTTPS is a no-brainer, providing business benefit beyond increased security. HTTPS currently enables the bestperformance the web offers and powerful features that benefit site conversions, including both new features such as service workers for offline support and web push notifications, and existing features such as credit card autofill and the HTML5 geolocation API that are too powerful to be used over non-secure HTTP. As with all major site migrations, there are certain steps webmasters should take to ensure that search ranking tra... Read more

I have the same problem than Chaos at 07-16-2003, but I didn't see the solution:
I can't connect to secure sites (https://). It says "The request was rejected because the port it was connecting to is not configured to receive the protocol being sent". So how to connect to such sites ?

A:https://

Make sure your proxy allows connections to port 443.

What I'm wondering is, if I'm downloading movies from the newsgroup is my isp going to see matrix.avi comming across there server from alt.movies.divx or it is just going to look like garbage.

I recently upgraded W98SE and IE6 from the MS site. I also uninstalled and reinstalled a newer version of Zone Alarm. Since then I am not able to access HTTPS pages or download files. I initially discovered this while trying to access secure pages at my banking website. If I use a proxy everything works fine but without a proxy no browser (3 tested) will work properly. I have spent considerable time with tech support at the bank and then my ISP. It appears that I have some port blocking because a proxy assigned port allows everything to work. Downloads only work through agents set to a proxy. When I run a route print there seems to be some redundancy with 11 entries when I am connected and 7 disconnected. My TCP/IP stacks look clean, no spyware, virus or trojans detected. I have seen other threads about problems with IE6 but I have problems with all browsers and download agents unless I use a proxy. I have uninstalled firewall and virus detection and closed all but essential background programs without resolution. What's up???
 

A:HTTPS, etc. problems

Easy. You use the proxy.

Ever since they have reinstalled Symantec Anti-Virus software they can no longer access any https:\\ web pages. We have tried the following so far:

- Resetting internet explorer settings
- We ran Spy-bot and removed spyware, this made no difference
- Cleared the internet cache, still we can not access any https pages.

Windows XP SP3 x32
IE 8
This is a legacy system that I have to keep running.  Suddenly, I cannot reach any secure (HTTPS) web sites.  This is a problem since Windows Update requires IE.  (I have applications running on this system that are still getting updates.)
I can access secure (HTTPS) web sites using Firefox but windows update does not work properly with it.
I have tried clearing the SSL slate, resetting all options to the default.  All add-ons are disabled. 

I though I could uninstall and reinstall it using add/remove programs\windows features but that only removes the shortcuts.
Any suggestions on how to get IE 8 working again with HTTPS would be appreciated.

I wasn't sure whether to post this in Networking or here, so I did both. I apologize in advance if I should not have done so...


1) Assuming I have my own web server, how difficult is it to set up an https page?

2) Is it possible to set up an https page so that (non-secure) http pages would load in a frame such that the insecure data gets transmitted securely?

The impetus for this is that I when I access certain webpages from work - my personal (web-based) e-mail being a prime example - I *really* don't like the thought that members of our corporate IT department have clear, unencrypted access to my (personal/private) e-mail/data/etc.

I know there are remote access programs that would allow me to tunnel in to my machine at home, but our firewall at work is very restrictive.

There must be some way to do this...

A:Questions about https

I don't believe that you can do what you want.
To setup the HTTPS you need either a certificate issued by an trusted authority, or you can generate one on your webserver and just have to "accept" the security warning everytime, or install it on every machine you want to "trust" the site. As far as encrypting the unsecured data, it stays unsecured unless you use vpn software (very difficult if you have ports blocked on a company firewall) ]

Maybe you could setup some type of remote desktop running on port 80 on your home machine. Then use your machine's browser to access your email. To do this may require software that your company may not allow.


Being one of "those" IT guys: (not to offend, just offer my two cents)

1. I wouldn't have time to even try to capture packets or screen shots of every person that works at my job.

2. Unless they were suspective of doing something (wasting company time, resources) not appropriate, would they even ask that this task be done.

3. Most companies let you know up front that they "can" and "will" go through electronic transmissions, but rarely would do something so drastic.

4. If you don't want people to "see" it, then maybe you could wait to do it at home or an internet cafe (which is far worse than your work!)

What I don't understand, is why your ISP webmail is not https anyway? Most ISP's with webmail use this to prevent giving out login information ... Read more

This just started happening about 1-2 months ago. My google chrome on Windows 7 64bit has been having a bunch of issues properly loading webpages that I frequent. Wether it's facebook, game sites, or any random website during research. I get error. This is an example. I click on a bookmark I have of my bank. and I get this..

"This is probably not the site you are looking for!
You attempted to reach www3.citizensbankonline.com, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as *.atdmt.com. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake (and potentially harmful) version of www3.citizensbankonline.com.
You should not proceed, especially if you have never seen this warning before for this site."

I also get issues with the loading of pictures where they just don't appear and some websites load as a list with bulletins at the start of every line with a white background and all black text. I've seen "resolves" where accepting cookies worked buuuuut thats a load of bullasaraptor crap. I use Microsoft Security Essentials and did a fullsystem and found two things which were both promptly removed. "Bettersurf" and "TrojanDownloader:Win32/Clikug.B" Bettersurf got quarantined.

Hello,
After having some PC problems and installing IE6 (previously IE5), I can't log onto ANY secure websites. I thought it was just Hotmail, but it is all secure connections with HTTPS in the web address.

I'm connecting to the net with AOL 5 which has worked for years, (I recently tried AOL 8).

I've tried various options in IE but none seem to work.

Any ideas?

When I enter my email address at https://haveibeenpwned.com/, it tells me that I have been poned 5 times.
What exactly does that mean?
What kind of action should I take?
Is it really necessary to change passwords?
And if s,o for the website listed or something else? (please see examples below LinkedIn and PHP Freaks)

I have read the article at
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Have_I_Been_Pwned?
but it has only made the issue more confusing.

Thanks for you help.
Andynic

Here are 2 of the 5:
1.
LinkedIn: In May 2016, LinkedIn had 164 million email addresses and passwords exposed. Originally hacked in 2012, the data remained out of sight until being offered for sale on a dark market site 4 years later. The passwords in the breach were stored as SHA1 hashes without salt, the vast majority of which were quickly cracked in the days following the release of the data.
Compromised data: Email addresses, Passwords

2.
PHP Freaks: In October 2015, the PHP discussion board PHP Freaks was hacked and 173k user accounts were publicly leaked. The breach included multiple personal data attributes as well as salted and hashed passwords.

Compromised data: Dates of birth, Email addresses, IP addresses, Passwords, Usernames, Website activity
 

A:https://haveibeenpwned.com/

Just change the passwords for the sites mentioned. And if the same password is used at any other site, change that too, because hackers will try the compromised password first.
