In the past, when you opened up private browsing, it seamlessly integrated itself into your browser, being indistinguishable. At a glance, no one would know you were private browsing; it blended in.

In a recent update, Mozilla did something unthinkable and made private browsing an isolated instance from Firefox. This, of course, results in a purple flare in the taskbar in front of the entire world that you are private browsing.

I don't understand who thought this was a good idea. I want to know how to undo this horrible change.

See the screenshot where you can't see any information on all my open Firefox windows, except for my private browsing window.

I am using Firefox 107.0.1 on a Windows 10 machine. And, I am not able to login to the SSA website (US) using Firefox. I reviewed the answers in the post (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354403) and tried several of the possible solutions (safe mode, rename/delete profile, reboot computer, etc) without any luck. I've attached a screenshot of the error when trying to login using Firefox.

Strangely, I've used Firefox exclusively to login (latest, maybe 6 months ago) before with no problem. It appears it is only when I currently am using Firefox. This is because I am able to use MS Edge without a problem.

Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you, Chris

Hi, I planned to block my users from installing extensions/add-ons. I found an article that might be the answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1308646). I tried to create a simple policy (below), but somehow it does not work (I can still install any add-on/extension). What is wrong with my script? I'm using Firefox ESR 78.11.0 (64-bit) by the way.

My "policies.json" looks like this:

{

"policies": {
  "ExtensionSettings": {
    "*": {
      "blocked_install_message": "Blocked!",
      "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/"],
      "installation_mode": "blocked"
    }
  }
}

Hello,

(excuse my English).

I receive properly most of my emails in Thunderbird but there is this one from "Wetransfer support" (support@wetransfer.zendesk.com ) I cannot. I receive it on the email service provider server, but not in the Thunderbird client. I just have a notification ("1" next to the main folder). When I send copies of it to myself from the server, it is the same issue. Strangely, when I copy paste the content in a new message, it passes through. Everything happens as if there was something inside the body of the message that Thunderbird did not like. Some little pictures inside are not copied in the copy/paste process, so maybe it is the cause. What's your opinion?

Best regards, Samuel

Is there anyway to make a Hotkey for our Autoplay function, instead of having to go into Settings, each time we need the function?

In my experience, I have it set to Block both Video and Sound, but this blocks simple pronunciations, in Search or Translations. I hope there some way, a command, a mod or a setting allowing a Hotkey or Icon for Fast Disable/Enable.

Thanks for all your work and making the internet safer for everyone.

I have unsubscribed from all newsletter after receiving the first email but days later I'm still getting emails from Firefox (e.g. Superpower #4: See if your info has been leaked).

This is an incredibly bad user experience and to my knowledge illegal in the EU.

I'm probably still within that journey but the journey should terminate the moment I clicked unsubscribed.

Hi,

I have today logged in to a specific webpage on my energy providers website and find that Firefox does NOT display the option to open a chat which is clearly displayed in the Chrome Browser (Screenshots attached).

I have navigated to "Settings/Privacy & Security", scrolled down to "Permissions" and can confirm that the "Block pop-up windows" option is NOT enabled.

I am obviously missing a setting somewhere, can anyone advise?

Thanks

Hi. FF 107.0 64bit Up until yesterday I could open Facebook in a normal window, but yesterday it only opened to a white screen with a top banner with the FB logo on the left and grey circles on the right. I searched on here and Google and found this was a fairly kcommon problem. I opened FB in a Private window and all was well. I could also open FB in MS Edge no problem. I have tried the recommended guide to Settings> Privacy> clear cache/data/cached web content>clear. No change, still white screen in a normal window. As far as I remember I have not changed any setting or even gone into tools for sometime. I am at a loss as to what to do. Seems many others have this problem and have not been able to find a solution which does not give me much confidence. I am on Win10 fully updated.

Hello,

this topic is about two things.

1. How do I reset the data of the built-in Protections Dashboard without resetting all of Firefox?

2. and probably more complicated, how do I stop Firefox from checking for "Login breach information"?

I do already have and always had "Show alerts about passwords for breached web sites" in options disabled. Still the Dashboard shows that "1 password stored securely.".

Mozilla says "[i]Firefox Monitor warns you if your online accounts were involved in a known data breach. For more information, see Firefox Password Manager - Alerts for breached websites. To get the latest login breach information and more, Firefox connects to firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com/i"

So now I've gone as far as blocking "firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com" through HOSTS. Still the Dashboard shows that "1 password stored securely.".

Why is it still checking? How is it still checking? How do I stop this?

I have the notification setting set to block all requests for website notifications.

https://www.bonsecours.com/ still managed to present such a notification (see the attached images)

NOTE: I recently had to reset FF due to the installation being corrupted during the install of an upgrade. I believe I have restored most of my settings on topics like access to microphones, push-notification requests, and the like, but I may have missed something relative to this. (When I first shut down all requests for push notifications, I believe it was still required to do so via about:config.)

Hi, there is no Security Problem on other Browsers like Chrome or Opera. Also on Firefox when I click on the padlock on the left side of the url the message is: Connection is Secure. But when I click on additional Inoformation a dialog pops up and on the tap Security -> Technical Details it says "Connection not encrypted" Why is that? There are no external links on my website, no pasword fields... I'm using xsl transformation. Is that a Problem?
