I use Mint 19.3 and is attached to a hardware product Winston Privacy which due to lack of sales the piece of Hardware is no longer available but the Hardware I have has a Lifetime License in the firmware. My point is the tracking that Mozilla does seems to be very high with Mozilla even though I have turned off the tracking with Firefox. As you can see with the attached file 'ScreenShot1' Pie graph Domain 'incoming.telemetry.mozilla.org' is the majority of the pie which has a count of 61 blocks. File 'ScreenShot2' shows the actual number count for the Domain.

Both my wife and I have lost work and time due to Firefox notifications. I have seen my wife throw her hands up and ask me what to do because she has been hacked and now all it will let her do is change her Firefox color theme or whatever else Firefox is pushing. For people with physical or other handicaps these notifications are extremely stressful. I did the research (4hours) in Firefox archives and getting caught in the Firefox loop that took me back to the same wrong information. BTW, where is the "options" category in Privacy and Security? I have installed a block though I doubt it will work and would like to hear the correct way to stop or derail Firefox notifications. Suggestion: Use a pop up message like a sticky note instead of de-prioritizing the web page I am attempting to or looking at. I could be contacting poison control since I can't hear or (this actually did happen) researching what to do with explosives in my back yard that are smoking and dripping that I just plowed up AND the local law is a 1-800 number and will get back to me when they listen to their machine. When my freedom of choice is taken, it pushes me to not support the taker. If I can be of assistance let me know and I will do what I can to improve the Firefox notification scenario.

Hi,

This morning I logged into my Gmail using incognito mode and then closed the tab. Now when I visit Gmail inside incognito it logs me in immediately as if it saved all session information like cookies. I faced this issue first time on any browser and there is no mention of such issue elsewhere. I am on Version 96.0.1

I have Verizon.net e-mail. Tbird 91.5.0 64 bit Win 10. A few days ago, 1-18-22, I can no longer access this account thru Tbird, the password does not work any more. I do not have my password stored since I prefer to enter it manually everytime I start Tbird. Since AOL now controls verizon.net e-mail accounts I can get to the e-mail there. I have tried the app password thru AOL and that password when entered into Tbird will work for that session until I close Tbird for the night. What am I missing? What can I do ? Please help I am 67 and depend on this daily.

After the recent update to v96.0.2, I am unable to use Google login to most website that uses Google Firebase authentication. A new window would pop up and when I click on the Google login link, the pop up window would disappear and subsequent attempt would not yield and result with the pop-up window opening and closing on its own.

How do I stop Firefox from connecting to Yahoo analytics. Bitdefender is constantly stopping Firefox, see below

Online Threat Prevention:

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an expired certificate to sp.analytics.yahoo.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since websites must renew their certificates with a certification authority to stay current, and outdated security certificates represent a risk.

I don't want Firefox to connect to Yahoo for any reason.

Hello. First, fantastic work on the browser! Second, recently my secure connection to a specific site keeps dropping. I use Firefox to connect to tutanota.com (de). I have HTTPS Everywhere and uBlock Origin installed. Before recently, I never encountered this issue, now it's happening every day. When I first log in it's working as expected, zero issues. After about 30 minutes to an hour I now see the error stating that my connection is not encrypted, and mentions something about loading external images. I already told the support team at Tutanota that I have no images loading, but it's still showing the error. They said the connection should still be secure, but that doesn't make sense if the browser itself is saying it's not secure. It happened around the time where I also had DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials installed as well, but I have since uninstalled that add-on. Still showing error. Please advise.
