I've installed lots of add-ons thru out the years and when I'm not using them, or just didn't like them, I just go to the "Add-ons" settings and press on "disable" thinking that's the end of the story. But I've become more privacy and security concerned as time passes and now I'm wondering if I should delete all the add-ons that I no longer have any use for, (and some useful ones but are very sketchy).

What I mean is that some add-ons "require" permission to everything you do in your web browser "to work properly" and well that's beyond sketchy. I recently used an old add-on and realized it worked perfectly even after over 2 years of it being disable, I mean even after multiple firefox updates. I realized that the add-on had "automatic updates" turned on so... even disabled it was updating in the background... therefore it was somewhat active.

Now I'm wondering if all of this sketchy add-ons that I've installed thru out the years that need all kinds of weird "permissions" like access to well... -everything- (passwords, history, credit cards, etc...) have been collecting all this data even after I disable them years ago?

Not Working: Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed

I have Firefox set to "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" but it doesn't do what it says it will. Cookies are deleted, but the cache remains. I want to keep a history of the sites I've visited, but have no cookies or cache saved when I close- see images below.

The first is how I have it set for Firefox when I close. The second is an example when I reopen Firefox - the cache is still there. I never have any exceptions set up and don't need to.

When I ask this question on this forum all I get is a response that looks like its by a bot. It repeats the instructions for clearing the cache that do not work that I already know, but never address my actual issue.

Is this a feature that just doesn't work, and is ignored by Firefox, even though their entire rap is that they have more privacy oriented than other browsers? Privacy washing perhaps?

Or is there some setting I am missing?

Hello,

yes I know that version 3.6.28 is quite outdated now :) What is 20 years comparing to life on earth.. :)
Thing is that I need exactly this version of firefox because only with this version important web project works and now it is impossible to connect to server because I think TLS 1.0 not supported on server any more and old firefox can not handle the new one (do not know for sure, this is my opinion). So now I have very serious problem as I can not use needed web resource and deadline is tomorrow :(

So questions as follows: 1. Is there a way to force to work firefox 3 with web address https://varzybos.bki.lt 2. Maybe I can use non https:// version if all certificates are turned off in some way ?

I tried to add exception, then tried to play with various config option, nothing helped. So at this moment I am desperate.

Thank you so much.

My macbook is a 2019 16", running Monterey 12.3.1, and has the touch ID sensor on the top right of the keyboard. I love having it for all my log-ins, but can only make it work in Safari. When I look online I'm told to go into settings> privacy > and then just choose the toggle to turn it on. My version of Firefox (which says it's up to date) does not have that option in the Privacy and Security section of settings. Any thoughts? I'd rather use Firefox than Safari, but that is a HUGE feature to me. Thanks!

I hate your new email address blocker!! All I want is for you to turn it off. I was using Firefox 100% of the time till you started blocking me from entering email address, I use Firefox for work and some times I have to enter clients email address into forms and your new blocker won't let me enter them. So, I have to log out of Firefox and open Google Chrome to be able to fill out the forms where I have to enter clients email address. Please either discontinue the use of this blocker or tell me how to turn it off OR I will have to start using Google Chrome 100% of the time.

Thanks,

I came across this article https://brave.com/popular-browsers-first-run/ which says the following

> A granular description of the device was also included in this payload: an Apple Model ID (if any), details about the CPU (e.g. cores, extensions, family, L3 and L2 cache, model number, speed, vendor), graphics card and display settings (e.g. name of graphics card, full on-disk address to drivers, driver dates, vendor, version, whether or not the GPU is active, amount of on-board memory, current state of D2D and DWrite, a granular set of feature flags, connected displays (how many, resolutions, refresh rates), hard drives (e.g. model names, type), operating system (e.g. name, date of install, locale, version, granular windows build number), security software (e.g. names of anti-spyware, antivirus, and firewalls in use), and more. > > One of the more interesting observations about this Telemetry payload is the presence of a key called environment.settings.telemetryEnabled, which was set to false. Presumably this would mean no such telemetry calls would be made, which clearly was not the case.

And was wondering if Firefox can shed more light on why it seems that disabling telemetry apparently does not stop the pingsender process?

Hi,

I use firefox, with synced settings, at both home and my place of work. I try to manage cookies so my Spotify always remains logged it when I open my bookmark. This works on my home computer, but doesn't seem to work on my office computer.

I've looked at the setting and to me they appear the same. I'm only slightly know what I'm doing so any help would be grately appriciated! One system is a Mac and one is a Windows - unsure if that would make any kind of difference.

Thanks, Andrew

Passwords don't work and Sync locking up

I put a favorite on my wife's FF (v99 on latest Windows 10 Pro). This https site should have asked to save the password - it did not. When I went to Settings > Privacy & Security then click on [Saved Logins] I get a SYNC page that tells me I have to have a SYNC account. There were no logins found, which is scary because she has 50 (or so) logins to various sites she goes to. Clicking the [Create New Login] and entering the data then clicking [Save] freezes (fuzzes out the page) and does nothing.

This Password problem with Firefox is getting frustrating enough to quit using the product. One of the primary functions of a browser is to save our passwords. I do not want to use SYNC and have no interest in using it. It is atrocious to lose my 200 (or so) passwords every month for the last three months and now my wife's 50 (or so) passwords. This FF password manager is out of control and SYNC is another technological abomination.

What in the world is wrong with Firefox. We've never had these problems for over 15 years until the end of last year and so far this year?

Hi,

I have a problem, which only seems to apply to Firefox. I am a developer for a site which uses LetsEncrypt certificate. When I access it via Firefox (and only Firefox), I get the error message as mentioned in the subject.

I tried to understand why this occurs. A quick Google just leads me to an issue with the Microsoft domain, and what I can understand was a Firefox bug.

Trying to figure out if it is a problem with Firefox, or a problem with the certificate. Any thoughts?

Mozilla clearly lost it with their unique identifier, anyways i got a question on this topic.

If i download Firefox here https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release there will be a unique identifier, but if download it here https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ There won't be such an identifier.

So, which is the better option since i know little about mozilla.org not sure if it's secure. Also when i download from the first link, what will the unique identifier track exactly since i open my browser and paste the URL for download, i don't come to the downloadsite from any other site or search result, i directly go there, so what will happen with the identification in that case? I know i had a similar thread before, but question is still open.
