I am using the currect version of FF, 71 or 70. something, not sure but I just updated. I use Whatsapp.web to chat when on my PC. I have no trouble connecting to Whatsapp.web using my Iphone and Firefox. However, EVERY time that FF closes, for a restart, or simply when I make a mistake and accidentally close the browser, the connection to Whatsapp.web is apparently broken. I say apparently because on the Iphone, it sontinues to list Windows 10 as an active device using the web app. When I used Microsoft Edge, once I scanned the QR code and connected, I would STAY connected, even overnight after I had shut down the PC. I am wondering if there are certain privacy or security settings which are preventing Whatsapp from staying connected when the FF browser closes. I also remember that a couple of years ago, when I was using FF in the 40s versions, maybe, Whatsapp also stayed connected. Just a note: the reason this is sort of a problem for me is that I am blind, and I use certain visual accessibility settings on Windows and FF that do not allow the Whatsapp QR to be scanned; so I have to change the entirevisual setting of my PC, scan the code, then restore the entire visual setting. Any ideas how to keep Whatsapp.web connected always, or at least as long as I don't end my Windows session?

Is the cookie clearing function of CCleaner 100% redundant for those who use only Firefox as a browser and choose settings that delete all or nearly cookies when the browser closes? Ideally, I would like to dispense with CCleaner for cookie clearance and depend only on my Firefox browser settings for that. [The various other functions of CCleaner, and its overall value, are not part of my question.]

I use a Bing Searchbox in Firefox Browser. When I do a search, I get a popup at the bottom of my screen asking me if I want to download Microsoft Edge. It gives me two options: Download now, or later. I have to hit "later" to get rid of it.

Is there a way for me to delete this popup in Firefox. I don't want Edge. I want Firefox. Please let me know if there is a solution to this. Thank you!

[Firefox won't accept my master password] From Firefox Help I was told I could try another profile if I had one. Beside the Default Profile I have one in Root Directory and one in Local Directory. Instructions say to use one by clicking LAUNCH PROFILE IN NEW BROWSER. That command does not appear anywhere. ???? IF I could find that command, where could I find the command SET AS DEFAULT PROFILE?

In Firefox 78.0.2, the dialog for Autoplay looks ghostly. All other dialogs (e.g., Location, Camera, Microphone, Virtual Reality, etc) are raised and display as expected. It seems that the dialog for Autoplay does not raise to the front. It is rendering behind other elements.

It's faux modal window...a "fauxdal".

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open the "Privacy & Security" section of the Preferences (about:preferences#privacy)
  2. Click on "Settings..." button for Autoplay

Screencaps uploaded; one showing normal, expected modal display (for Location Permissions), the other showing the "fauxdal" condition. In the latter, the screencap was marked up to draw attention to the ghostly window corners and title. Notice the I-beam cursor in both images, as it was positioned over the Search field.
