Have updated to FF 79 yesterday on a private computer (with admin privileges on my user).

Ever since, the browser options changed specifically:

1) In Help > About I cannot trigger an update anymore as the button is replaced by the message "Updates are deactivated by system administrator"

2) In Settings it reads "The browser is administrated by your organization".

Never seen this.

On another computer with the same antivirus software FF updated to 79, no trouble. On yet another machine with Win Defender only also no trouble after update.

Malware & antivirus scans both come up empty. Removed and re-installed FF already to no avail.

On the troubled machine some big Win Update is not yet made available by Microsoft...

Somebody knows what is going on?

When I log into Mozilla support my saved account Email is typed out to log in and when I get to the last part "@gmail.com" a second login name supposedly from the password list appears but ends with "email@gmx.de"

The email.gmx.de is not in my password list and only shows when logging into Mozilla support. Why doesn't this show in password list? How can I locate the origin?

Hi,

I'm unable to access my Firefox account as I can't seem to find my recovery code / I switched phones.

I understand that I can't get my old account back, no biggie - not bothered about the sync data.

I would however prefer to keep the email address, as I only have 1 email that I use. Creating a new one just for Firefox seems unnecessary.

Is there anyway I can have the existing account purged so I can re-create under the same email? I can easily prove ownership of the email account (loads of old emails from Firefox etc) The current password is even still stored in my password manager.

Thanks,

Under options, privacy and security, History: Use custom settings for history, and finally, Settings for "Clear history when Firefox closes"- I would like to politely request an exceptions feature to this auto-clear setting.

I use Lastpass frequently, and up until now, I delete *everything* under this History setting when firefox closes. I've done this for years, but I'm growing very tired of logging into Lastpass with every browser close/reopen. And this auto-clear feature also wipes the local file necessary for account recovery if 2FA isn't possible for whatever reason (I've had this happen when a phone broke and I couldn't get to google auth).

I just want to be able to get rid of everything on browser exit, except for anything Lastpass related. Is this possible to create instead of employing an extension?

I use 2 or 3 websites (in the UK) regularly which allows me to check local stock of items I want to buy and then collect. I use Page info and change the Allow Location / Permissions to do this. Every time I restart FF or re start my Mac or FF does an update these chosen settings are lost and reverts to default. How can I make this setting a permanent thing, it's a bit irritating not to be able to Save this preference. (FF v78.0.2esr / Mac 10.11.6)

Why does Firefox feed so much data to Google?

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

Background -- I have a Synology Disk Station. When setting it up, in order to make a secure connection I registered the Domain I planned to use with Synology and received a registered Domain Name. I then applied for and received a certificate from “Lets Encrypt. It worked fine for a few years. I was able to login to the Disk Station Locally using the Local Network IP I had assigned to it, and also able log in via the registered Domain through Synology with a Secure Connection using either method when logging in. Everything worked perfectly. Over a year ago I had some issues with my network (it has been too long ago for me to remember what it was). I could not resolve it, so when I called Netgear Tech Support they had me reset my router to factory settings. This did fix the issue I was having, but I later noticed resetting had changed my IP address. I thought this was not a problem at the time. It was then I also noticed I was no longer getting a Secure Connection on through my Disk Station. Have been trying to resolve this on my own, but I am not having any luck. But I am learning as I go. Present Day – I am still having issues logging in. The message I get when I log into the Synology registered Domain with Firefox is "Unable to Connect". I tried Chrome and get a similar message. When I log in locally using the assigned IP address I get "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead".

I click on the "Advanced" button where Firefox displays the Error Message:  SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN.  I continue with the exception and able to log into the Disk Station. 

My Goal is to get it working with a secure connection as it did before the Router Reset. -- I have checked all the appropriate ports are open. 5000 and 5001. -- Have checked for any firewall restrictions. -- I have tried replacing the previous certificate with a new one. -- Synology Tech Support does not seem to know, so I figure the problem lies within Windows 10 or Firefox. -- The Certificate in my Windows mmc Console says the Certificate is OK. Weather that is the one that is used for this connection I am speaking of, I do not know. -- The Certificate is current and has not expired. My apologies for this description being lengthy, I just want to make sure I state everything I can think of in order to get this fixed. I do not know a lot about this topic, but am learning as I go. Any help is very much appreciated.

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

One of my Windows 10 PCs running Firefox is not remembering my setting privacy.resistFingerprinting=false. After each restart if reverts to privacy.resistFingerprinting=true.

Has anyone experienced and solved this problem previously? Which config file is this setting stored in outside of FF?

Firefox is on latest release (v79) but this has been persistant across previous releases as well. Thanks

Hello, I decided to use your master password feature. I've written the password on paper for backup purpose. And everything worked fine for aprox. 1 month. But today to my surprise Firefox told me that master password is wrong. I've typed this password at least several times before (with success) so I was sure that I remember it correctly. Fortunately I had it on the paper. I checked it - and I realized, that I remembered it correctly. So I tried once again but I failed. I tried few times with the same result. I had the same password also for different site. So I logged on that site - with success. So my keyboard seems to work correctly. I didn't change master password in Firefox. At least I am not aware of that. It was unchanged for whole period I used this feature, as I wrote it wasn't long. Fortunately I have all important passwords saved on the paper so I decided to reset my Firefox Master password. It is possible that I've lost less important passwords but I can reset them because I still have access to my most important data. I do not need any help. And I am aware that I could made mistake of any type. But I decided to report that because there is also a chance that this is Firefox error so you should be aware of my case.

I have no idea what state is on file as being my state of residence (I move a lot for a civilian), but I've lived at this address for the last three or four years and never had any issue with logging in to my firefox account before. I have plenty of trouble with my location WITHIN the state (Oklahoma), because apparently the only cities that exist in the state are OKC and Tulsa /eyeroll, but I've never had an issue with the state itself being misidentified. I could understand if a VPN was causing the issue, but I'm not using a VPN (I know, I probably should, but imagine the login issue THEN! lol). Thanks in advance for any help.
