I've been using Firefox browser for Facebook and other online purposes for several years. Over much of that time I periodically (several times per week, minimum) get a small pop-up box, usually while I'm on Facebook, which is headed "Apple wants to make changes. Enter your password" The "USERNAME" box shows only my first name, John, (which is my admin password for the laptop) and the "PASSWORD" box is empty. No indication of what changes Apple wants to make, so I've never put my password in, and when I hit "cancel" I have to cancel three times before it goes away, only to show up sometimes within minutes, or sometimes days. Until today I'd not been able to get a diagnosis from Apple, but their help person, after a screen-sharing session today said it doesn't come from Apple and she suggested I contact Firefox Support and ask about it. So I'm asking. The screen shot below shows what it looks like, although I closed Firefox before i took this screen shot, just to see if the box would remain, and obviously, it did. Any thoughts as to whether this is somehow coming from Firefox? Thanks, John Jessup

Hi. Today, I noticed an unknown gmail address is superimposed on every Firefox screen & site I visit. It is locked in position as I scroll.

I've refreshed Firefox, opened it in Safe Mode. Quit & restarted Firefox & still the strangers' gmail address remains in place, even when opening a Private Window.

Is "8brentk@gmail.com" known to anyone? Have I been hacked? What can & should I do to get rid of this weird thing? Thanks.

Hi there

New Mac Book Pro M1 running Big Sur 11.1

Firefox is being a nightmare. Forgets everything. Logs out of everything. Logs out of Firefox itself everytime I quit. So everytime i open firefox I have to sign in to Google (my homepage), BUT... because it has also logged me out of Firefox itself, I have to enter a very long password each time. Sooooo boring.

What is going on? Is this really apple not wanting people to use anything other than safari?

Any help gratefully received

Despite having correctly set the choice parameters for opening the "search" page with a certain engine (eg Google), occasionally when a new search window is opened it opens with the YAHOO engine, despite having eliminated this possibility in the Firefox settings.

We are entirely unable to logon to our Spectrum.net email accounts using Firefox and Safari on this computer: iMac OS 10.10.5. We CAN logon from a different iMac. The problem is not with Spectrum. I believe there is a setting that is not letting us in. I unchecked the box for "Show alerts . . ." about breached websites

What is the problem? Thank you

Once you get the DATE written correctly THEN you can hope to fix the multitude of aberrations in this confused so-called feedback loop. You are STEALING our data and nothing more. 2022 09 06 13:41:59 is the correct and ONLY way to write time. Every other method is childish and not acceptable. Ask a scientist. So to my original complaint: 1. On my macbook trash from usa I have the latest version of Firefox. 78.something 2. On my airbook trash from usa, I have the latest version of Firefox 103.something The later is COMPLETE trash and I even doubt if it is from Mozilla, but on viewing these pitiful "help" pages perhaps that is the American way. Because A. I DON'T want ANY dates written in a Son-from-sicko manner. B. I don't want more space wasted with - zoom + controls on the menu bar and beside "New Tab". C. I want to help you poor b*ggers, but if you can't speak nor write in English then clearly you will have difficulty explaining what you are trying to establish. Americans are KNOWN for not being able to express themselves using the English language. So WHY would anyone let them have ANY say in how things are organised? D. I don't want to automatically check if Firefox is the latest version and as one person complained "It keeps asking you if you want to update ten times a day". I want it (the firefox prompt) to be able to inform me a maximum of

     1. Once a day
     2. Once a week
     3. Once a month

with frequency set at a rate which is adjustable. D. I LOST all my data stored in the various TABS because on reboot (on the mac air), the Firefox (102) changed to a later version (103) and LOST all my Tab information and History!!

As I am not a typical American pervert who is ashamed of looking at various sites and thus is afraid of someone finding out what he has viewed: I do NOT need to erase History. WHY would anyone wish to erase all the evidence of the work they have spent the day doing? I NEVER erase history as I wish to keep a record of the various methods I have used in educating the uninformed, so that we ALL at some point can become enlightened. THUS, the clear DATE (WHICH INCLUDES TIME!!!) should show the very second that I logged on to each particular address. It is hence SIMPLE to see where we have wasted most of our time and therefore LEARN to avoid those sites (typically American) in future, since they have a common SOURCE (USA land where most people live in wooden huts yet use the most resources).

Now, set that in front of your team of experts around the globe to play with for the next year and come back when you have got the BASICS right!!! I've no idea how ANYONE could even THINK of asking an American something unless they wanted to know if the Crossball Rangers had done well in the SuperBall basket ball rally. J*sus f*cking chr*st get sorted. And from the first message which I had started but was delayed with your complicated sh*te wasting our time....

<There is only ONE way to display the date or time.

2022 09 06 13:26

the rest is trash from usa, which no one needs.

Ask a scientist.

"You must be signed in to add comments" should be written FIRST so that we don't waste our time writing when we have no intention of going through the tedious process of "signing in" when you guys can't even get the DATE right!!!!>

Now this whole message goes into my own records of "dealing with yanks" folder under Firefox and not mozilla, since you don't even have the ability to send us a copy of what we have written for our own convenience. Clearly almost an hour spent on trying to educate at least ONE individual (who perhaps reads this), just one hour of thousands of hours I have spent seeking to get the message across for the past thirty years. Peter Jennings (yes ABC News) was thankful that I informed him and 300 million other Americans of the earthquake back in the late 1980s but that is beyond the scope of this present matter.

My wife called me in this afternoon when big red error message popped up "saying" it is a red alert and the web page used Apple's logo on it, said the old 2011 iMac, OS 10.10.5 Yosemite, is "blocked" and has a virus. It had an 877 phone number to call but we failed to write it down. She did nothing after that. When I saw that I pressed the red window page kill button, upper left. Got the rotating rainbow ball. . . computer working overtime. Next, Command-W to kill the webpage, nada. Finally, pressed the hardware ON/OFF button behind left side of screen. On SAFE restart I opened my account not hers and found Firefox had thin, white, flashing lines across the tab bar area(full width) and tabs were flashing individually. Every time you open a tab, this happens or possibly when it is accessing. So, I upgraded Firefox, leaving the OLD version intact. Upgrade I NOW notice is the 64 bit version.

Is there a fix out there? or, is this thing "infected" with the CCP virus or something? Fix for it?

I will shut down and re-open the old version and see if it still happens and post an update here.

I have had Metamask installed for a long time but recently it has vanished from my browser and despite enabling it many times, deleting and reinstalling and turning it on, it still is not showing up in Firefox. I tried connecting Uniswap to it and it sends me to the download metamask page even though I have already downloaded and installed. What is going on?
