Please continue here: [/questions/1314933]
I am running a WIN10 Pro 20H2 PC with Firefox 83.0. All software up-to-date. My Internet connect is cable with a U.S. IP location.

All O.K, until I open "https://www.newegg.com/" with my default Firefox browser, which always opens "https://www.newegg.com/global/uk-en/".

Opening the same "https://www.newegg.com/" URL from the same password manager entry explicitly using Chrome or Edge I get to the desired U.S. location.

Does not occur on my other PCs.

Firefox is changing the URL so that I am always going to the UK location?

Can't find where this is happening. Can anyone assist?

I am trying to minimize Firefox, but the minimize icon in the upper right-hand corner is missing. I am still able to close Firefox using the 'X' in the upper right corner of the window, but I am unable to minimize or restore. All other applications still have these icons available.

None of the tips I have followed have done more than solve the problem for current session. This issue only arose with a recent Windows update and it is very annoying, especially the Bing search engine, not as good as Google and not so easy to change. Windows updated except for Feature update 20H2

I just paid for and downloaded the Firefox VPN. I turned it on but there is NO ICON in the Firefox browser showing that it is active. Where is the HELP for this darn thing? I went to SETTINGS and it looks like it is turned on but there should be a HELP topic for this damn thing without drilling down for over 2,000 help topics! If I cannot know 100% that it is ON and working... then I'll get my money back. I don't have TIME to fool around with BULLSHIT! Be clear. Be comprehensive. Be succinct!

I was notified by a 3rd party monitoring service of a potential scam involving my email address, DOB, tel #, etc. To the best of my knowledge my password was not compromised. I contacted the potential site from the alerts which was GTL.Net and after contacting customer support I was told they had nothing to do with GTL. This company appears legitimate but I have had no dealings with them and have no idea whether I am being scammed or not. But they were possibly accessing information which they did not need. Help, I am stuck as to what alternatives are available.

Picture of 1 of 4 notifications (all 4 were the same):

Compromised Email Address & Compromised Phone

Monitored Element Email Addresses: [confidential info]@Gmail.com Monitored Element Phone Numbers: [confidential info] Date Found: 11/10/2020

We monitor online activity to identify the potential illegal trading and selling of your personal information. Unfortunately, we found a match which indicates the information within the red box above is available online. If your password was also compromised, that will be noted in the "Additional Info" section below. Please note, this is the password associated with the site where your email address was procured.

If the “potential site” information is populated, we obtained credible evidence that this is the possible site from which your email address and password, if applicable, were found and we recommend you change your password for this site.

If the "potential site" is not named, you should consider what sites you have associated with the “Monitored Element Email Addresses” and consider changing your password on those sites..

For example, if you set up an account with madeupwebsite.com (fictitious site for this example), you provided your email address to this site and established a password for this site; that password should be changed. See additional comments under “Here's what to do:”, below. We monitor online activity to identify the potential illegal trading and selling of your personal information. Unfortunately, we found a match which indicates the information within the red box above is available online. Below you will find additional information on next steps to take to ensure your personal information is secure.

Additional Info

The following data was found compromised with your email address. First Name Thomas Last Name Garner Email [email]@gmail.com Address 1 [confidential info] City [confidential info] Zip [confidential info] Country us Phone Number [confidential info] Potential Site gtl.net Creation Date 11/10/2020 D.O.B. D.O.B. Found Match IDEMAILADDR,IDHOMEPHONE

Here's what to do: Immediately change the password for the website if identified above. Consider changing passwords for websites or online accounts which may be associated with this email address. If the password is not identified above, that does not necessarily indicate your password is safe. Passwords might not be visible to our monitoring due to encryption or otherwise, yet they could be procured and encryption cracked by parties obtaining information from the dark web. Utilize smart password habits. Re-using passwords across multiple sources may increase your vulnerability to identity thieves. Create unique and strong passwords for your accounts using a mix of special characters, numbers and upper and lower case letters known only to you.

Here's what to do: Ensure the accounts that contain your phone number are secure. Many times, your phone number is used to authenticate your name and account information for websites like Gmail and Facebook.

I cannot get Firefox to go completely into full screen on Mac OS Catalina. When going full screen it will hide the Mac system menu bar at the top, but it will not hide the Firefox address bar. I've researched a bit and found some suggestions about settings in about:config pertaining to full screen access, and I've exhausted all of those suggestions. Is this a known issue on Mac with Firefox?

I'm a dinosaur when it comes to the world of electronics primarily computers, so I will probably use the wrong term(s) when trying to describe what I'm looking for.

   I was directed to Mozilla/Firefox several years ago by a computer repair person. I downloaded Firefox on my desktop tower computer. If I remember correctly the repair person referred to Firefox as a "browser". I was also directed to a "search engine" by the name of "Duck Duck Go". I was informed that these two (2) products worked well together. So I downloaded Firefox and Duck Duck Go on my desktop and they have worked well together. I now have noticed that Mozilla/Firefox are promoting Firefox as a search engine also and not really recommending Duck Duck Go anymore, by not mentioning it. 
  So here's my dilemma. Do I make sure that I have the most recent version of Firefox on my computer and if I do, then do I download Firefox as my new search engine? If I don't have the latest version of Firefox on my computer then I will download both new programs. Is changing the search engine to Firefox the best decision? I know, I know, I'm asking the Fox to guard the hen house,  no pun

intended.

       Thank You,

I need help restoring my passwords. I saw a suggestion to refresh Firefox, and so I did, thinking it wasn't more than disabling the add-ons. I didn't realize it would eliminate my logins and passwords. Can someone help me find them? Otherwise I'm in some trouble.
