    I use an extension called Smart HTTPS and when I run into one of those sites, I just click on it and add it to the white list.

    Have a look at certificate manager in firefox and check to see if there is a certificate added b your AV. If so you might need to delete it and re-import it.
    I just checked it. I dont see windows defender anywhere on the list. I have tried checking and unchecking the option that says query ocsp responder servers to confirm the current validity of certificates, but didnt solve it.

    I have also tried clicking on select one automatically with the same results.

    Well, i wouldnt call them problem sites, since they are just harmless websites, such as gaming websites like this one.

    I only use a handful of websites that I trust, so i dont want firefox to interrupt my browsing. I want to disable the message that asks for certificates completely.

    Also, what would some good security settings and addons be for firefox?

    So far, i have enabled tracking protection, and i have checked the button that says send websites a do not track signal that you dont want to be tracked. I have also checked all the options in deceptive content and dangerous software protection.

    Well i can visit that site but get a mixed content warning. Insecure content on secure page but the site isn't blocked.

    I used to use a lot of decent FF addons but most of those won't work in Quantum. If interested in any of these let me know.

    You might want to investigate the following options.

    If you choose to remember history then you'd need to untick "Browsing history" in address bar search options.

    RE: Fonts. Choosing your own fonts and sizes will mess up some sites. You can uncheck the following and refresh the page on those sites.

    RE: Sometimes firefox blocks harmless websites and you have to click on add an exception to get access to the website.

    I reckon you have a SSL certificate problem. Close Firefox and rename cert8.db to cert8.old then relaunch firefox. See if that helps.

    I have completely overlooked that checkbox, does it get rid of this annoying message?

    I don't get any pop up. There's a ton of about:config tweaks that I use but too many to post here and explain in detail.

    RE: Forward/ Back buttons. You'd need to create then modify userChrome.css but it's not straightforward.

    Download and some instructions here:

    List of features available in this project · Issue #2 · Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx · GitHub

    Basically extract files into the Chrome folder you create in your profile then modify userchrome.css using notepad.

    You can preview buttons in the images folder:

    When editing the user chrome.css file:

    ENABLING options: remove the combination of / and * before '@import'.
    DISABLING options: add the combination of / and * before '@import'.

    So for the back/ forward buttons in the screenshot I posted earlier:

    Edit the file then save it.

    RE: Disable the bookmark this page icon in the top right corner.

    Click the three dots and you should see the option to remove it. Right click "Bookmark this page"
