More Information

The fraud protection feature of our bank requires that we set up our bank log-in to that of a "trusted site". I found some information that said under Tools, Select Options, then Privancy, type in website and confirm...THERE IS NO OPTIONS UNDER TOOLS...HELP

You can use Firefox > Preferences on a Mac instead of Tools > Options.

Menu differences: Windows: Tools > Options - Mac: Firefox > Preferences - Linux: Edit > Preferences

Thank you for your response. I'm not a computer expert so when I clicked on Preferences, I have no idea where one would insert the website that I want to set up as a trusted site. I believe the former instructions referred to a "privacy" field but there isn't one on the MAC. I am very anal when it comes to understanding computer steps so if you or someone could give me step by step instruction I would be very grateful. Thank you.

Do you have problems with accessing that bank site?

Firefox doesn't have specific setting to make a site a trusted website.

Thanks - Guess I need to speak with bank. I have both Safari & Firefox. What a pain!

Appreciate your response.
