I am trying to disable Firefox notifications whenever I take screenshots, and googling for solutions, I found the commonly suggested solution is to uncheck the "Pause notifications until Firefox restarts" box in Permissions:

[to turn off forever the "screenshot" splash notification]

[Copied" window]

This option is not available in my browser version; thus, I'm hoping there's a newer workaround for this.

When I attempt to access several websites, I am prompted to turn off my ad blocker. As I have not added a third-party software or extension that does such, I assume it is part of Firefox proper. Search as I might, I cannot find any specific reference to such a thing in "Settings". SO...how can I temporarily disable the 'Ad Blocker' device that is part of Firefox? The 'TEMPORARY' part is important, as I do greatly value the function!

Tell me how to remove FreeTestNow from my PC.

Mozilla Firefox:

   Click the Menu button (three bars) on the right upper corner of the screen
   Select "Options" and click on "Privacy & Security" in the toolbar on the left hand side of the screen
   Scroll down to the "Permissions" section and click the "Settings" button next to "Notifications"
   In the opened window, locate all suspicious URLs, click the drop-down menu and select "Block"

I see no """Options""" when I click the Menu button so I can't remove FreeTestNow from my PC (Catch - 22?)

So how do I get to """Options""", then scroll down to the "Permissions" section?

Thank you for your help.

I saw some warning regarding a certain cert of auth, and in checking that feature out, saw a bunch of sites that I never visit, and thought I'd "clean up." Now NOTHING works. I tried to undelete them, but that didn't work.

I know I could uninstall and reinstall, but I'm afraid that Firefox will recognize my account and reinstate all my settings including the unwanted changes of certificates of authority. I just want to reset Firefox to whatever default status it comes with without losing all my bookmarks and passwords - is that even possible?

Using OS authentication (e.g., TouchID) for Credit Cards and Logins

Apologies for re-posting, I asked about this issue before https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1323826, but it was archived without any response :(

In an answer to this question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1318109#answer-1376159 cor-el warned that using OS authentication (for example, TouchID on a Mac) for passwords instead of a Primary Password is actually not really safe because it doesn't encrypt logins in logins.json and it would be possible to extract them by running: prompt("Logins",JSON.stringify(Services.logins.getAllLogins())); Now I am a bit confused because for storing Credit Cards the default is, of course, using OS authentication (I don't think there's an option to set a password instead). So I am wondering, is that safe, i.e., is the credit card information encrypted that I can retrieve with my TouchID (even without a Primary Password)?

And if so, would anybody be able to explain the differences between these two approaches and why the Firefox developers chose one for Logins/Passwords but the other for Credit Cards.
