Who the heck does Mozillla think they are? It took me about 5 minutes after a search to get into Dell's website. This is what you get when you deal with non-profit entities! No common sense. Unbelievable. Sciolist.

Hi, I've been using Firefox for some time and a wile ago I tweeked some setings to make it more secure/private and since then, almost every time I enter to gmal or youtube or any other Google plage I have to login again. This wouldnt be a big problem If it wasn't because I use two factor autentification and it's a bit conversome.

I have tried to reset the settings of firefox and even to uninstall it, but It still gives me this problem.

Do you have any solution, is there any configuration item that I should change?

Thank you very much!

I have a Windows 10 Home PC (version 1903 os build 18362.476) with Firefox 70.0.1 (64-bit) installed. My Firefox browser in will not start-up in a maximized-state, it reverts to a minimized. Generally, when I close my browser, I just hit the "x" button on the top right corner or I choose 'Exit' from the menu. As a note, the only changes I made to the browser were in about:config - privacy.resistFingerprinting =true and privacy.trackingprotection.fingerprinting.enabled= true. When I set both to false", the browser opens correctly in a maximized-state.

I have a new MacBook and have restored most info from my old MacBook via Time Machine, but not Firefox. I downloaded a fresh copy of Firefox. I would like to get the (many many) bookmarks that I had on my old MacBook. I have a Time Machine backup from that computer. However, I can't find the Firefox bookmarks. Per the instructions below, in my Time Machine backup I looked in Library > Application Support, but found no FIREFOX folder there. Can anyone tell me where to find my profile > bookmarks?

Thank you!

Finding your profile without opening Firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data

   Click the Finder icon in the dock. On the menu bar, click the Go menu, hold down the option or alt key and select Library. A window will open containing your Library folder.
   Open the Application Support folder, then open the Firefox folder, and then the Profiles folder.
   Your profile folder is within this folder. If you only have one profile, its folder would have "default" in the name.

When I'm in Firefox watching videos on Youtube or listening Soundcloud and trying to increase volume with the standard shortkey (fn+f12) on my Asus Zenbook, this causes tab to go back one page. However I noticed this happens right at the moment when I'm pressing the combination, so if I'm pushing the buttons continiously it happens only once. Seems, that I have no such a problem in other apps. Firefox is up to date ( ver 70.0.1 on Dec 1st 2019). Laptop model UX410UAR, running Win 10. I also have Autohotkey running in the background to hold absent numpad keys. However turning it off doesn't change the behaviour. Any advise, please?

So my browser is *not* up to date, and I will *not* be updating it, because every time I do that, it screws up on me. The last time I updated it, I could no longer restrict the number of instances it runs, and it started hogging system resources to the point that I could no longer even watch a streaming video. Updating firefox again is out of the question.

That being said, I'm trying to load a site and it says secure connection failed and won't let me load it.

How do I bypass this and load the site anyway?

Thanks for any help!
