I am trying to reach my cell phone provider for support, but I cannot get the 'Click her to chat' button to do anything?? Now I am going to be forced to call them for support, and that is a monotonous process that involves being put on hold for hours, or having to get a call back later in the day. The issue (attached) is that the page has a small red box in the middle of the screen that is used to start a support session when you click it, but clicking that box does nothing now. I KNOW this is a Firefox browser thing, and am personally getting sick to death of all of the useless, pointless security features added to this browser, that only seem designed to make it impossible to comfortably browse / use the internet. I am seriously getting ready to switch to a more user friendly browser, in order to be allowed to use the internet without Firefox constantly deciding what I am and am not allowed to do online, unless they can fix this!!

I have been using the latest version of Firefox with the standard add-ons viz Ublock Origin, Adblock Plus, NoScript and so on. I can put up the exact list if required but every time i close a tab a cookie from ec2-35-169-248-108.compute-1.amazonaws.com get deleted even though there is nothing related to that host name anywhere installed on my computer specially in firefox or its addons.

and being a privacy conscious individual i had already disabled all third party cookies and other enabled all other privacy settings.

Is someone building a profile of each website and webpage that i visit ? how do i resolve this problem ?

Please find images of the specific hosts' cookies being auto deleted by in the right hand button corner highlighted in Red color by "Cookie AutoDelete" which is one of the security addon downloaded from https://addons.mozilla.org

About a month ago all of my login passwords disappeared and firefox isn't saving them anymore. I tried using the logins.jason with key3 or key4 files from the Old Firefox but it keeps renaming them corrupt.

It's been asking to save my passwords but it's not actually saving saving them and this is turning into a real; problem.

I posted about it then but I can't find it and besides what they said to do didn't work and someone said it was posted in the wrong place or something so I'm posting it again.

Thanks

I founf the following documentation about enabling FIPS mode, just curious if there are more updated documentation since the screens are now different. Step 3 is easy using a script however step 1 no longer exists. Curious if it could be enabled then the profile saved and exported and brought into the new system allowing the configuration to stay. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Configuring%20Firefox%20for%20FIPS%20140-2

So I somehow broke mic permissions in discord on firefox. I can not get it to show the pop up to let me allow the mic, whenever I try to unmute I get this https://i.imgur.com/TkFKwpj.png (refreshing does nothing)but it never pops up and doesn't list mic permissions,only autoplay sound when I click on the lock icon. In permission settings under microphone discord isn't listed. I also know it isn't a discord thing because it works fine in the app, just not within firefox. Tried clearing cookies/site data for discord too, nothing seems to make the pop up appear. Also tried updating firefox, rebooting pc, nothing seems to do it.

Really at a loss of what to do to get it working.

Hi,

I have seen the below article and couldn't find the turnoff options in version 67.0(64-Bit). Can you please help me out on this?

Turn content blocking off on individual sites Sometimes content blocking can prevent pages or parts of pages from loading. If content blocking interferes with your browsing, you can disable it on individual sites. The shield icon appears in the address bar when Firefox is actively blocking content on a page.

Select the shield icon Address bar shield or the information icon site info icon to expand the Control Center panel. content blocking panel 65 Click the Turn off Blocking for This Site button from a normal browsing window to disable blocking for the website. If you're in a private window, click the Turn off Blocking Temporarily button (see below). Once content blocking is disabled, a shield icon with a strikethrough shield icon strikethrough will appear in your address bar. To turn content blocking back on, expand the Control Center panel by clicking the shield or the site information button site info icon and click the Turn on Blocking for This Site button.

After the latest update Firefox stores cookies and site data even in always private and the content blocking set to custom with everything set it the highest settings. Example i can check my email at outlook com then sign out click forget, then close the browser. then open it and it loads my email account without signing in. The only way it can do that is, the browser is storing cookies and site data. the only way to prevent it from doing this is to do everything i described then open the privacy settings and clear cookies, and site data and clear history, two times. Firefox like this is the most unsecured browser. it was a lot better before all these changes. It was a good idea, but it's caused a lot of troubles with security issues for me.

A few months ago Firefox updated and autoplay settings were changed around. It took awhile of searching, but certain things in about:config had to be disabled to make it so videos didn't autoplay. After the latest update, videos are auto-playing again.

1. My settings did not revert, they are still the same. 2. The in-menu setting of disallowing sound does nothing, videos are autoplaying with sound on multiple websites.

Does anybody have a fix? This is getting ridiculous how much this keeps changing. I do not want videos, muted or otherwise, to ever autoplay in my browser. Can anyone help me with the autoplay settings? It seems like there are a bunch more in about:config now and I don't know what any of them do.

I like to change the router codes of my newly installed Speed Port from the German Telekom company at the site: "http://speedport.ip" Unfortunately the certificate of the product is not trusted by Firefox with the following error message: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT could I risk to ignore it?

My thunderbird password suddenly did not work. It had worked before. It was not saved. I have followed different streams of advice, for weeks, but never get to a place where I can simply create a new password. In one place, I was asked to create a new masterpassword. I did that, but still could not get into thunderbird. I used "start" to find a profile, but was stymied by all the choices. Help?
