I was informed about opensubtitles being hacked. However, since Monitor says "Results for: ... @sky.com

This email did not appear in the Open Subtitles breach. No other breaches found from a basic search".

how did you know about my use of opensubtitles and POSSIBLE inclusion with those affected?

Thank you.

My C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp folder fills up with Firefox update folders called "MozillaBackgroundTask{numberletterstring}", a new one of which appears every 7 hours (except when computer is off because I changed the Update setting after this issue started so the "Allow Firefox to automatically install updates" has the "when Firefox is not running" unchecked). Every day I delete the previous day's folders. This is annoying. It started within the last month. I don't use Firefox as my default browser. This only happens on my Windows 7 Pro laptop, not on my Windows 10 laptop. Can anyone tell me why this has started happening and how to stop these files keep accumulating please?

I am having trouble while making a call on messenger by Facebook. I can answer the call but within 2-3 seconds, the call gets disconnected by showing this message "Connection lost". I cannot hear anything from the other side and vice versa. I have allowed the site to use microphone and earphone to use. Don't know what went wrong. My Firefox version is 96.0.1 for Linux and my OS is MX-Linux 21. Please help me if you can. Thanks in advance.

Okay, so...hopefully somebody here can help me from going, "Mhhmmm! Grrrrrrr!" every time I wanna search something.

    So here's what's up...

I go to my home page, bing.com. I type in a search, and because it pertains to the issue at hand, lets suppose the search was adult oriented, or something that would make you want to change the search safety settings from its default of 'Moderate' to 'Off', as you want it to be. Cool. Great. Sweet, its off, now I can continue.....Buuuuut, no! Nope. See,...{sigh}.....okay, so lets back up a few steps and right now we're at the moment when we had switched 'Moderate' to 'Off'. Okay! So,....now lets say that you want to filter down your search results. So, we navigate over to the right-hand side of the page, we click 'Filter', we select our filter, the pag loads, annnnnd AHHHHHH DAMMIT TO HELL!! It's back set to 'Moderate'. And it will continue to do this when for whatever reason the page needs to reload. Its driving me.......{sigh & steps back}....Ooohh, okay, well.....suffice to say, the issue needs resolving. Like,....NOW! Please.  :-D It almost slipped my mind, but, for the sake of knowing what kind of suggestions you may give,.... Let me just throw out there that I am no 'computer noob'. The last time I went to buy a new desktop computer, I wasn't a member of Camp Cow! What I'm tryin' to say is, I'm no programmer, but I'm quite 'puter knowledgeable. I remember as a kid, getting bored and walking into the den where my dad (former IBM guy) was sitting there, mumbling outloud to himself, "...Wha...? Whaddaya mean, 'Bad command or file name? ...Doesn't make any sense...". I sat down to watch him try & fix the computer, I told 'em I was bored, he said, "Bored, huh? Yeah,....that'll happen sometimes." Gets up from his chair, plants his hand on the backrest, stands up and does this sorta,...two and a half step, 'walk' across the room to the closet, which is like, two feet from me.... Still with his one hand on the chair's back rest, with the other, he reaches up into the closet to the little book shelf in there, grabs a book I've seen him use a number of times before, takes it down, half pulls * half 'back steps' back into his chair, playfully flings his book holding hand toward me. It lands in my lap with a sh-mack! of my pants, and my dad being completely serious, he's not joking in the least says to me, "Here. Read this. It's good to know." The infamous book? The user's manual for MS-DOS 5. ...Hmm,...it might of been 6.2. My dad was teaching me DOS commands when I was 8. Heh!.... I'm sorry, that went a bit longer than I had imagined. Well, I guess I'll chalk it up to, 'Taking the opportunity to tell a 'I remember when' story about my dad. He died last year. November 8th. He was 86. Best dad you could ever know.

 Hey thank you in advance, if you're able to help.  Thanks & take care!

Firefox on my Win 10 desktop seems to be saving logins just fine, but Firefox on my linux laptop isn't. Instead of saving the logins I've actually used (manually) to log into a website, it offers me instead the next time I attempt to log into the website a list of some user IDs I've never used on that website. Why is that?! Anybody have any idea why, where saving logins is concerned, my Windows Firefox is working fine, but my linux Firefox is not? Thanks for any insight you can provide.

When I find-out still being listed, I go back and find only that part remaining checked, I cannot uncheck it, unless I check >>>>>Provide search engines<<<<<. If I leave it like that, nothing changes. If also un-check >>>>>Provide search engines<<<<<, nothing at all is checked, still I cannot get >>>>>Show search suggestion ahead of browsing history in address bar history<<<<< to stay un-checked.

I tried to find a save changes button, but cannot. I assume changes are saved automatically, considering all the rest of the changes are as they should be.

Some e-mails I am sending out of Tbird are not arriving at their destination. I noticed this last week. I have been using Tbird for many years, have not changed anything.

I don't get any kind of rejection message.

Other messages I send arrive fine. Test messages to myself arrive. But I have -- for example -- been unable to post from Tbird to my listserv.

I have sent control e-mails out of my provider's webmail (rcn.com) and they arrive, but comparable e-mails from Tbird do not. RCN says they think the problem is in Tbird.

Account settings are sending (as always) to RCN's smtp address.

Long time user of Firefox, and installed latest update and there is something wrong with it. Perhaps someone wrote a bad line of code? After installing the update there are at least 2 problems. One, Safesearch can no longer be turned off. Two, suggestions as you type cannot be turned off, this is extremely annoying as I do not like or use this feature. I cannot use Firefox in this crippled condition and will use another browser for my web searches which are frequent for my research and other project. This is sad as Firefox has been my primary browser almost since it's inception. I have tried to fix this on my own and have only been frustrated and wasted a good bit of time.

Windows 7 64 bit. I've been running TBird for almost as long as it's been available. I have two Gmail accounts. Last night TBird was working for both accounts. This morning, when I booted the computer, I got the failure message in the subject line, for only one of the two gmail accounts; the other works fine. I used the popup to re-type my password (multiple tries), with no luck. I then tried the gmail webpage to view that account's emails; it worked fine. I then logged out of the account using the gmail web page, and manually typed in the password and it worked.

The only thing I can think of that has changed is that last night I had an issue with Youtube (automatically charging my paypal account) which uses the same email address that I'm now having issues with, so on the advice of Youtube tech help, I turned on two-step verification. Will this cause TBird to fail its login process?

Thanks for any assistance,

Charlie

I'm on a Windows 10 Pro PC. Actually, Firefox was working fine until today. My Firefox is up to date as of right now. I have an account with AtesMedia. I used to log in and I'd access a menu with the current time and content available "EN DIRECTO" live.

Today, when I entered, the time showing on the menu in the Firefox browser did not correspond to my Windows time setting. I tried the same access from Chrome and it has the right time setting. I can therefore easily access whatever content I select and click on.

In Firefox the time is way off by six hours (the time difference between Spain where the service content originates and my time in the U.S.). Again, the computer time is correct in the Windows settings, as I can confirm by simply flipping over to Chrome and not getting this problem.

Doing some searching, I found suggestions to go to about:config, finding the privacy.resistFingerprinting setting and make sure it is set to false. I did that, closed Firefox, restarted it, checked to see that my change persisted (it did). I then re-started a new session of the AtresPlayer, where I had to log in again to my Premium account. But, the problem was not fixed.

I still get the wrong time in Firefox. If I manually advance on the timeline by six hours, of course there are different program contents available. I can then select one and request either to continue live or begin the program from its initial start time. Either way, it works, but it is an enormous pain to go through that I didn't have to do before in Firefox.

Something has gone awry and I don't know what it is or how to fix it. Can anyone please help? Please don't tell me to set privacy.resistFingerprinting = false -- I have already done that and it doesn't work. I even removed it completely and did it again from scratch. I have shut down Firefox. As I mentioned, I restarted it to make sure that my setting went into effect and wasn't cancelled on shutting down and restarting again.

I have noticed that some business websites do not work correctly with Firefox. Here are a few ; Lowes Home Improvement, NJ Covid vaccine, Labcorp, Picattiny Federal Credit Union, Clover Health, Walmart.

Could this be due the fact the fact that according java FF does not support the technology behind java?

In the case of Walmart, I was having a problem placing an order and asked for help, the email response did not mention FF.

Most of these website deal with confidential information.
