I want to find to get rid of this or find the source of this so I can delete it.

In "about:policies" there are 2 Active Policies: "DisableTelemetry", and "DisableDefaultBrowserAgent" Also, in "about:policies" I'm not sure if it's related, but there is a long list of policies there too.

Hi, I want to delete my acccount entirely and start fresh, I login to the website just fine, but when going to the "Delete Account" button I keep getting an "Incorrect Password" pop-up.

I've changed the password twice now, logged in just FINE, yet keep getting told I'm using the incorrect password when trying to delete my account.

I've tried on multiple different browsers now to delete the account and it's just not working.

I really wanted to swap over to Firefox but everytime I try, I get some insanely stupid issue that never ends up being resolved, I've found another thread from 2021 about this and they stated it never got fixed and they had to make a whole new email just to use the service.

All of a sudden I can't open a certain website. I opened the website a few days ago with no problem and have been using the site for years. (I checked to see if the site is down but it's not.) I googled how to unblock websites in Firefox and nothing I've tried works. I disabled Trackers for the website and I cleared my Cookies. I added the Firefox uBlock extension a few weeks ago to stop constant website popups (after I tried resetting Firefox) and I turned uBlock off for this certain website but I still can't access the website. I also installed Mozilla VPN last week. I'm using Firefox 122.0.1. What could be the problem?

Fri. 10/20/23 @10:48 pm CDT -- Good evening. As an experienced I.T. Consultant, I cannot find a spot in the Account Profile section or its related pages to UPDATE my phone number. If your system is doing 2FA, it had to be entered at some point. Since I had that old number for almost 10 years, I don't remember what features Firefox had back then. I'd appreciate it if someone would provide an answer. Previous answers I've read today didn't provide one.

Thank you.

I've followed all the steps that I have found online to make FireFox for Mac to remember twitter login credentials to no avail. All other websites offer to save details. Is there something obscure with Twitter logins? Chrome does this but I need to get rid of Chrome as it is not as secure as FF

Any ideas please? I'm using Sonoma as my OS....

Kind regards

When trying to update Firefox on my Linux Mint system, I saw this in settings:

Updates disabled by your system administrator. Well, I am the administrator. I checked and I have administrator privilege, and I would not have disabled updates. How to I convey that to Firefox so I can update my browser?

Please email me: [removed email from public support forum] with a response.

Thanks.

Firefox Suggest and Bookmarks Broken

Due to a recent update, Firefox has changed its search results in the URL search bar.

I used to be able to turn off ALL search suggestions other than bookmarks. However, now it shows expanded results based on my bookmarks that are actually NOT bookmarked pages.

NOTE: This appears as separate behavior from Firefox Suggest. However it is linked to the settings for Firefox Suggest. The heading "Firefox Suggest" in the URL bar provides the correct link.

For example, I have a single page bookmarked from wrapbook, but instead of suggesting that bookmark it suggests the root domain/homepage.

I have no interest or purpose in visiting that homepage, but hitting enter it will autofill to that page. This is super annoying as it's not in my history or bookmarks.

Turning off bookmarks completely in Firefox Suggest settings fixes this behavior, BUT it means I have no access to my bookmarks from the URL search bar. This makes it a 3 step process to open bookmarks then, and is a poor UX design.

I have copied my settings and example screens below for reference.

I'm using the current version 118.0.2 (64-bit). Windows 10 Pro x64

Previously I turned off all search suggestions and it worked correctly. Just FYI, I also whitelist all websites and use restricted/strict cookie settings. The only cookies that are retained between sessions are those that I manually add to the "exceptions" section of settings. All other history and cookies are cleared.

I usually have two Ff sessions goins; one regular for sites I log on to and a Private for casual browsing.

It would be great if I could set the Private session to always accept cookies and not prompt me, but the two modes don't seem to be separated in the settings.

Is there a work-around (or possibly a plug-in) that could solve this?
