When I log into my bank account and verify via a security code, it will ask me to save my Device Name. The problem is Firefox responds as "My Firefox 03/21/2023 01:34 PM" instead of my real computers name. Since the time always changes, even if I save it, it will never be unique. That means I will be asked to verify every time I log in. How can I make Firefox present my computer name instead of "My Firefox" followed by a date and time stream?
