RecordSeek ReSecure or remake one of FamilySearch Teck for FamilySearch
On 31 Dec 2020 Browser named Firefox, quit the security of the third party program RecordSeek. The use of RecordSeek, though continued until about early July 2021, When Firefox updated for Firefox 89 to Firefox 90. This ended the free and secure use of RecordSeek in Firefox. It also was ended the free use in Crome, and I believe, Edge browsers.
The free use of RecordSeek is very much need by patron's of FamilySearch and other sister partners.
I hope, and desire, that our Lord's Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-Saints, will either buy the RecordSeek, to be used again for free to patrons or make one by FamilySearch Technicians to use with other Sister partners, to again exchange records from one to another. This is much needed. Example:
This Person has no Sources in FamilySearch, Yet many in https://www.ancestry.com/
There are many patrons, that have lost the tool called "RecordSeek" in Firefox browser, That Firefox no longer support the secure connection for, and that Crome, and Edge only allows a secure connection, at a cost, no longer free.
Sending this info to FamilySearch, does no help in showing Firefox that there are many that do what the free use of RecordSeek secure connection that was removed when Firefox 89 was updated to Firefox 90.
Firefox is the one that needs to know this desire of many people, that want the attachment of RecordSeek, not FamilySearch.
This is done by the next three images that I will now display:0
in the middle image (find help)
write the word: RecordSeek, as it shows in the last picture, and the last of Search Support will appear.
there "vote" on it as something you want. This is what will Firefox know that RecordSeek is yet to be available.0
RecordSeek is not a FamilySearch product. You can reach out to their company directly and ask them when they will have their security certificate active again. [email protected]1

@Amy Archibald FYI - the freshdesk link for recordseek does nothing. One receives a very official "we have received your request. yada yada" but then nothing more.
The only way (over the course of several years) I have found to successfully contact RecordSeek is through the page on Facebook. Even that takes a LONG time for a fix to be implemented.
Currently, I can use RecordSeek to save a cited record to FamilySearch, on Firefox, but not on Chrome. And it's not possible to save a FamilySearch record to Ancestry on any browser.0
