If you find that Mozilla VPN is disconnecting or turning off after being activated, you can try the below steps to resolve this issue. These steps are also helpful if Mozilla VPN is connected, but websites fail to load.

Disable Firewalls (Desktop)

  3. The Allow another app button should highlight. Click the Allow another app button close to the bottom of the window.
  4. Click Browse.
  5. Navigate to the VPN by going through the following path: This PC > Windows (C:) > Program Files > Mozilla > Mozilla VPN > MozillaVPN.exe
  6. Click Add.
  7. Back on the Allowed apps window, make sure mozillavpn has both the Private and Public boxes next to it checked.
  8. Click OK at the bottom.
  9. Restart the system.

For macOS Application Firewall

  1. Open System Preference.
  2. Click the Security or Security & Privacy icon.
  3. Select the Firewall tab.
  4. Click the lock icon in the preference pane, then enter an administrator name and password.
  5. Click the Firewall Options button.
