Is there a setting hidden somewhere where I can force my preferred date format? Why do I have to contend with the dreadful date format when when visiting mozilla.org in english?

Hi!

Since most content is in English and search engines always link to the English version, I usually browse the english version of mozilla pages. But here on support in particular I have to contend with the pathetic date format where you can't tell which is day or month or year. So why can't I find a way to set the date format. Even the majority of tiny websites/forums have an option to specify the date format.

In Preferences > Security & Privacy, I have the boxes checked to ask to save and autofilling login & password info. But the browser does not do it. It asks, but saves nothing when I answer Yes. This has been the case since I refreshed the browser at Firefox's suggestion last week. Worked fine prior to that. iMac running macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6. Thanks.

Every time I close out Firefox and then restart it, the browser address bar has an orange stripe with a robot icon that says my browser is in remote control mode. I have to go into the about:config panel and search for the "Marionette" options. If I toggle the two settings that are true/false and restart, the remote control goes away. I did not install this feature, I have no idea how to use it, I don't need it, and I'm tired of having to do this every time I open Firefox. It's ridiculously annoying to the point that I'm ready to start using another browser. The internet has NO practical help on how to fix this for anyone who is not an expert in computer code. I need a permanent fix for this pesky and annoying bug.

Long story short... this is my first Mac (MacBook Pro 13-inch, M1, 2020). I noticed that there is a mini Firefox icon at the end of my dock before the "stack" downloads folder and trash icon. I was wondering if anyone else has the same issue. Restarting seems to help but comes back, removing Firefox from the dock also seems to help but once it's back in there it comes back after a while.

Today i was changing my password and 2FA application. I went to my Firefox Account settings and removed my 2FA and Recovery Key. I added my 2FA back again but when i tried to create a new Recovery Key, it didn't work. In the first step of creating a Recovery Key, it asks for a password. I have tried my account password multiple times but it did not accept it. Then i reset my account password and tried again but once again it did not work.

I use vit.codetantra.com website for my university exams, where we have to upload whatever we write on a sheet using our phone. When taking pictures from the website camera through my phone, it significantly reduces the image quality, to the extent that it's barely readable. This doesn't happen in Chrome mobile app though. The website has two options for image uploading -- Low Memory camera mode and Normal Mode. This option is available on Chrome but in Firefox it by default uses low memory camera mode and hence a blurry picture. I don't understand why is this happening. Kindly help.

Firefox auto update has stopped working for me. Neither of the settings, see attached screenshot do anything, all I get is a popup saying a new version of firefox is available with a link to https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/ I recently did a clean install of Win 10 pro x64 and this problem may have started then. I have another PC on the same network where auto download of updates are still working. Hopefully someone can point me to a way to get this working again.

When I try to add a new search engine to Firefox Focus (Android), I put in the name and the url and save, but it never shows up in the list of search engines to select. But if I try again and use the same name, it'll tell me it already exists. And, if I try to delete any of the default search engines, I select it and hit the trashcan icon, but when I return to the list, nothing is deleted. Any help is appreciated!
