Hi,

As in the topic. When I scan the QR code with Google Authenticator, the account is added and new codes start spinning (labeled Firefox ($email)). However, when I enter the visible code into the Enter security code input, I get "Incorrect security code" error (tooltip).

I can see Google Authenticator listed as a supported application, is this no longer valid?

I also tried typing the secret key into the app directly with the same results.

Thanks for help in advance.

I discovered this issue this evening, no idea how long it's been going on. I opened Task Manager to see if a program was running (not firefox) . Firefox WAS open, and I had one window open in firefox.. BUT next to Firefox, was (7) so I expanded. It showed 7 instances. With only 2 programs open, (firefox and task Manager) the amount of memory it was using was surprising.. Using 64 bit version of Firefox, 86.0

I tried "ending task" on the instances that were using 0% CPU, but I was only able to close 2-3 before ALL of them closed. I would then reopen and it would be 6, 7, or 8 instances I tried 3 times.

Can someone enlighten me as to why it is doing this?

Why does FF forget 'always do this' settings from session to session?

whenever FF opens/saves a particular file type, i set the 'Do this from now on' button for that file type or when i download a link that passes to a handler application, i click the 'always do this' button on the little toast dropdown. i do this because, shocker, i ALWAYS WANT FIREFOX TO DO THAT. but when i close the session, either manually or via reboot, when i launch back into FF, it asks me all over again for the same things.

now this crap has been a problem since time immemorial (since FF 26, IIRC) and it's always broken. when the hell is this going to be fixed, now that we have ONE MORE dialog that stupidly asks us to set a pref it has no intention of keeping?

somebody is gong to say 'make a new profile' or 'refresh FF', but none of that has ever worked and it doesn't work now because i've literally just setup six brand new machines and ALL OF THEM have this behaviour, ranging from Firefox, Firefox Nightly, Firefox Focus, right to Firefox Developer Edition. all of them fresh, right out of the box.

if anyone knows how to make this bloody behaviour stick, please let me know, otherwise the dev team needs to just remove the ask... or fix it and make the blasted thing do its job. >:(

85.0.1 (64-bit) Linux

All the addon icons I had moved from the toolbar to the overflow menu a while ago have disappeared for some reason.

Only standard application icons via the customize window can be moved in/out of the overflow area.

Disabling and re-enabling the addons does nothing. The addon icons that are missing from the overflow (that I had put in there) are now all unavailable. I tried to uninstall/reinstall one addon as a test but that did not restore the addon icon. No addons are in the right click menu either.

Anyone else seeing this issue?

I am still looking for help in seeing if I can use Microsoft Sharepoint with Firefox 86. When I try to log-in, I get a message that says "Working..." followed by a message that says I can't log on to the site and that I need to log-in. I can reach the regular Office portal and the other office apps without an issue.

Suggestions are welcome!

I am a manager of a company, and I need to let some of our employees access to our online accounts. However, they can see our username/passwords when they simply look at firefox settings. Master password is obviously not useful. I want to basically disable "show password" tab.

I looked up online all day, including other web browsers, and firefox extensions. I can't seem to find it out.

Can anyone help me with this?
