I have been sent on this circular quest three times now. Please help me.

I trust this message finds you well. I am currently using Mozilla Firefox as my preferred web browser and I'm interested in ensuring that I have the latest version installed for optimal performance and security.

Could you provide a step-by-step guide on how to update Mozilla Firefox to the latest version? I'm curious about the frequency of updates and whether the process varies for different operating systems I'm using windows.

Additionally, I'd like to understand if there are any precautions I should take before initiating the update, such as saving bookmarks or ensuring compatibility with installed extensions.

Furthermore, are there any notable features or improvements in the latest version that I should be aware of? I want to make the most of the browser's capabilities and stay informed about any enhancements.

Thank you in advance for your assistance. I appreciate your expertise in guiding me through the Firefox update process.

Best regards,

Hello,

The answer to the three most important questions in Real Estate is: Location, Location, Location!

The most important answer to my question is: How do I prevent my physical location from being discovered while using the internet?

Recently, I received an email from Moz://a and my physical location was identified. How do I prevent anyone, especially Banks, from knowing where I am physically located?

I've used many VPNs and they work work surprisingly well on many websites but recently I've been denied access to my bank accounts: "Your user name has been disabled." I am not in a position to call their "customer service number".

Do VPNs use only one IP address to substitute for my IP address?

Is it probable that banks know these substituted IP addresses and block them simply becasue they are associated with a VPN?

Thank you in advance for your Kindness.  :-}

Since pretty much the beginning of the internet, pop-ups were deemed a significant annoyance, so much so it diminished and ruined the users’ browsing experience and significantly reduced efficiencies. Hence the addition of pop-up blocking settings to all browsers long ago.

However, for some unknown reason Firefox gives Google a free pass and allows their “sign-in” pop-up that pop-ups seemingly on every website you visit where you then have to then manually close the pop-up on pretty much every single website you visit - even though you have the pop-up blocker setting on ( and the only way to turn off a pop-up blocker is to specifically add a website to allow for pop-ups).

This is absolutely horrible and not acceptable. If you have the pop-up setting on, no pop-up should be allowed to get through no matter what it is or the source. If you allow one pop-up to continue then you should be allowing hundreds of thousands of other pop-ups as well. But you wouldn’t as you know this would be unacceptable, but again, somehow Firefox allows Google’s pop-up to go through and it pop-ups on pretty much every single website you visit.

Note that I selected Privacy and Security Setting as the "topic" above as that is were Firefox has it's pop-up setting (and where you can add exceptions to allow pop-ups for specific websites)

Later version refuses to connect to my modem, and goes into security web mode. This modem uses HTTP/HTTPS for access, i.e., connects directly it's IP address, then the user enters a username and password. At that point, the the modem switches to HTTPS for control.

With this recent update, there is NO WAY to access the modem for any work, or upgrade the HTTPS certificate on the modem. This is a BUG.

What should happen is that if the web site will accept a HTTP connection, Firefox should NOT refuse connection or test for security issues UNTIL the user or the device switches to HTTPS.

As an aside, I've used Firefox on this Zywall modem for years until recently.

When filling out forms in Firefox, it offers to autofill everything - first, middle, and last name, home address, credit card info, just now it even showed it has my social security number. When I go into Settings/Privacy & Security/Forms and Autofill, and click to view Saved Addresses/Saved Credit Cards, there are no entries to edit or remove. Why does Firefox have this info saved, and how can I remove it?
