I do not have a G account. For work related purposes I have to utilize websites that bombard me with Sign in w Google. No settings within FF I found can stop this onslaught. Same goes for Ad Block Plus and a few others since disabled and deleted. No useful information on G's forum website. Firefox, I was under the impression your about user safety & security? Why O Why do I get this garbage from G daily in your browser 105.3 on Win 10 home without a way to disable it?

Hi all.

I have window 10, newish machine 2 yrs old, with MS Defender and Firewall installed and over weekend system was hacked by a search engine site (firefox) having a fake plumbing site. How could this happen ? Doesn´t Firefox have any protection against backdoor sites ? I am a cautious user not using any password manager nor any financial CC information stored. My trust has now been shattered. I write this to warn others. A long story cut short. The hacker got entry via the site into my notebook and ransomed me to pay 400 euros upfront to an XBox account to recover the machine. That never materialized. In the ensuing choas I attempted to turn the machine off, and the power button didn´t work. The hacker had gotton into the power plan and messed the program up that immoblized the power off function so he/she had more time to crib my files. On previous generation machines it was easier to take the battery pack out. Now not the case. The situation made worse that a communal Lan router was on another floor and impractical to pull the plug out. In my case I put the notebook in a microwave oven and slammed the door to screen it from the WLAN. It worked but it is ridiculous there is no other way. I blame MS for such useless protection Defender/Firewall programs and Mozilla must take the share of the blame too for allowing the clone on the browser. Even with remote connection disabled, if Hackers find it so easy to enter via the backdoor, then high time these companies upped the ante in making systems far more secure. Even with extra verification, it wouldn´t have worked. Now the next step is beyond home fiddling but have to take this to a IT specialist to root out any embedded 3rd party links. I welcome all comments.... one wonders all this stuff regarding privacy is really a rouse.

I'm signed in on desktop and phone (they are synced), but I forgot my password, and I don't have a recovery key. I want to reset the password to avoid losing data, just to prevent. If I back up my desktop profile, then reset my password, will this backup be enough to recover all my data? Or is there something that it's stored just online/on cloud by firefox that won't be recovered?

If I was given an option to throw myself in the pit that's become PRIVATE BROWSING by Firefox, I chose it in ignorance. One reason I faithfully used original/old Firefox was due to the ease in locating articles I'd read 2 weeks ago. I've come to understand that I refer back to those far more often than many people do. As my years lengthen (nearly 73 of 'em) my short-term memory is no longer as retentive as it used to be. Firefox never failed me. Then came PRIVATE BROWSING. I need to TURN IT OFF - PERMANENTLY. If I ever need to immediately delete my browsing history, I will do it manually, just like always. YOU PEOPLE (I hate that term; that's exactly why I'm using it.) YOU PEOPLE need to elicit satisfaction with status quo before making a wholesale toss down the elevator shaft.

Now, when I tic the "+" for a new tab, it automatically furnishes a New Private Tab. How about giving me back my old memory-saving New Tab? So far, I have resisted switching to Google, Safari, or God Knows. Please relieve the necessity.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Kind regards,

Kathleen Heaton

In the latest versions of Firefox all connections are automatically upgraded to https. As a result, I can no longer use Firefox to access this site: http://hearts.vex.net hearts.vex.net is a site which I've been using and enjoying for years. Since the site has no https URL registered with their hosting provider, all requests end up here

As Firefox is my default browser, I have to use other browsers for this purpose, which I'd prefer not to do. A setting in the configuration file could be added to disable this behavior either globally or for a specific site, correct?

No matter how many times I try, I always get the same message. I can log in with my main account, but not with this one, which is the one where I have an add-on I'd like to update.

So basically I just did a fresh install of windows on my computer due to performance issues, but before I did it, I made sure to save all of my passwords from firefox in a .csv file, but when I was finally done with reinstalling windows and firefox, there was no option to import my passwords back from the .csv file, and upon further research, you guys disabled the feature to import from .csv files, I just need a way to get my passwords back

I'm using a Chromebook and downloaded Firefox ESR in an effort to get doxy.me (a telemedicine video site) to work. I cannot get the camera to work because Firefox won't send a request asking for permission for my camera. So when I go into firefox setting, it looks like no sites have requested access to my camera. I checked my chromebook settings and allowed firefox access to the camera, but I can't figure out why it won't find my camera or request permission to use it. The microphone requested permission and is working fine.

Bitwarden is not working right...can't sign in to sites, changing a password doesn't work - maybe hacked? A separate vault window comes up different from the usual Firefox interface. Yesterday I spent a long time trying to sign in to Microsoft account - as soon as I made a new password, the site wouldn't accept it. I have tried with many logins now - even my Mcafee won't let me in...NO ONE has a human to explain this to...

Firefox Updates:

Automatically install updates (recommended) = OFF When Firefox is not running = OFF (It's on but greyed out because of the above setting) Check for updates but let you choose to install them = ON

Is it normal that firefox still creates this "telemetry" folder even when auto updates are OFF? C:\ProgramData\Mozilla-1de4eec8-1241-4177-a854-e594e9c1fb38 UpdateLock-CA7422744AE1A41C

C:\ProgramData\Mozilla-1de4eec8-1241-4177-a854-e594e9c1fb38\updates\CA7422744AE1A41C update-config.json {"__DEFAULTS__":{"app.update.auto":true,"app.update.background.enabled":true},"app.update.auto":false}

As suggested i added these two lines to firefox.cfg lockPref("app.update.background.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.background.scheduling.enabled", false); Seem like firefox doesn't give a ****? How can i once and for all fully disable both these settings? Automatically install updates (recommended) = OFF When Firefox is not running = OFF


By the way, during the installation i DID NOT install the maintenance service, so why exactly is the exe in the directory anyways??

I'm trying restrict usage of fingerprinting for my browser. I've already checked some articles and resources, for example this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-protection-against-fingerprinting

Currently my setup is like this: - I set "Enhanced Tracking Protection" to "strict" - I set "privacy.resistFingerprinting" to "true" - I'm using uBlock Origin

But still when I visit https://amiunique.org/fp I'm getting the information that I'm unique. The worst performance is amongst: Headers attributes:

  • Content language: <0.01%

Javascript attributes:

  • User agent - 0.49%
  • Content language - 0.04%
  • Canvas - Unique (this is weird because I'm even getting a notification about blocked canvas, maybe it is a quirk of this website)
  • Screen height - 0.05%
  • Screen available Height - 0.07%
  • Media devices - Unique

Is it expected for Firefox to fail that test? By Firefox own marketing I expected that I'm protected from fingerprinting but in fact I'm not. And worst yet it isn't even turned on by default.

What can I do more to actually block fingerprinting? I tried Ghostery and Privacy Badger extensions but they didn't seem to help so I removed them.
