It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

I have Firefox 84.0.1 on Linux Mint, and I have filled in the information for one credit card. When I hover over credit card fields on retail site forms, I usually (but not always) get a pop-up "hint" showing the card number and/or expiration date ... but I cannot get the browser to actually fill in the form field. I've tried clicking, hitting Enter, hitting Tab, but nothing actually puts the information from the pop-up into the form field. Any hints as to what part of the incantation I am missing would be appreciated.

I find that images generally show on webpages such as the front page of a news site. However, when I click into a specific article, the image which is usually near the start of an article in a lot of cases does not show (so it's not a "always never shown" situation); it's as if it's been removed from the webpage syntax i.e. there's no white space section showing something is missing. One example (of many I could include!) is https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/phonics-revolution-the-new-sound-of-reading-in-the-nations-schools/7A5UVZ55NAOJEQACLKELCNEU6U/ I verified there are images there by restarting Firefox with Add-ons disabled (which starts Firefox in Safe Mode), and also by opening in another browser. So I went thru and disabled *all* add-ons and restarted Firefox. Images still don't show! These missing images only show when I run Firefox in Safe Mode.

In the back of my mind, there is/used-to-be an option to limit the size of images on a page(?) but I can't find any option now. I have also refreshed Firefox (a number of times; including a total de-install, reboot, re-install) but the problem remains. .. What am I missing? I'd like to be able to see these images.

Thanks.

Hi there, I would like to “generally accept all cookies” for future surfing through the internet. I found this description (see below), but it doesn’t seem to work (help might me older before latest browser updates), could someone tell me how to set Firefox to accept all cookies? Thank you.

1. Click the Tools menu from the top toolbar. 2. Choose Options. 3. Click the Privacy tab. 4. Under "History" select "Use custom settings for history" from the drop-down menu beside "Firefox will." 5. Ensure that the checkboxes for "Accept cookies from sites" and "Accept third-party cookies" are both checked. 6. Click OK.

This is on fIrefox version 85 in Linux.

Last week I was discouraged to find out that my cache was taking up 2 GB of space, some YEARS old. So I decided to purge it and then keep it clean.

The cache gets stored in two places: the linux home .cache folder AND the firefox profile's cache2 folder.

To keep things REALLY clean I checked the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" checkbox, then manually enter the exceptions for web sites I do not want to block. Then I specifically added sites I really despise (google, for example) to the block list.

The data still gets cached, even after closing and reopening the browser the cache is still there (verified both via about:cache and by just looking in the folders).

Even when I purge the cache completely, verify nothing is there (about:cache) after deleting the cache folders from the hard drive, it keeps coming back, like a bad computer virus.

My interim solution is a crontab that runs every hour to clear old cache, but that seems silly. Do these security settings actually do anything? What am I doing wrong?

I have Bitdefender total security and several times per minute for hours per day I get messages that firefox is trying to connect to an untrusted source and I'm wondering if you can help me get it to stop. It seems to happen primarily when I am using NordVPN with a United States IP address.

This is the message I continue to get from Bitdefender:

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an untrusted certificate to trends.newsmaxwidget.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since untrusted certificates are issued by unrecognized Certificate Authorities.


I don't know what this trends.newsmaxwidget.com certificate is or where to find it to delete it. Can it be deleted? Is this a problem with my VPN?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

We had gotten a new internet provider a couple months back so email addresses were changed over and my email for my Mozilla login in is no longer accessible. In the mean time this week our computer died and we purchased a new one. Now when you try to login to mozilla to access my bookmarks and other things, which has 10 plus years of book Mark's on it wants to send a email code to the email I have no access to. I cant even add a secondary email or actually get past the login in page. Is there a customer support contact to help change the email on their side?

Hi,

I'm a bit old and really need someone nearby to come show me how to navigate into your securities and other benefits, someone who really knows all this. Is that possible? I get confused by the complexities of everything you offer.

For example, I read something about Ad blocker which said it wants access to all my inforamation- does that mean they want all my bank numbers for trading stocks? That would seem ridiculous, no?

It would also be time to make a small donation to assist your existence. How?

Thank you, Doug Calder [phone number] and you have the rest.

Hello,

I usually had no problems deleting a single form entry that was once saved. As described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/control-whether-firefox-automatically-fills-forms#w_deleting-individual-form-entries

But now this doesn't work anymore. I can't delete the form entry. Nothing happens when I follow the instruction. I tried it on two different laptops. Right now I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-Bit). Is this a known issue of my Firefox version or has the method changed?

Thank you in advance! M.

Just curious as to why you have Google as your default search engine. Google, from my understanding, is not the most friendly entity for users because they are just like many social media sites that invade users privacy for nefarious purposes. I have refrained from using Google and have went with Bing. Don't particularly care for any of the main stream search engines. Is there any specific reason why Google is used and not some other search engine that isn't interested in violating your privacy?

After dragging firefox icon to dock on mac, unlike safari, it asks for user id and password each time I want to use it, sending notification by e-mail about the log in. Is this necessary as safari doesn't need this, and if so, is it easier just to use safari as default browser instead of firefox? Or can this be changed in settings without harming my security, as I'm using it on my mac from home. Some things work better with Firefox, but it I have to login and enter a password each time to use it, then it makes it cumbersome to use Firefox as a default browser. Thank you, First time user of Firefox on Mac.
