Recently I have issues in Zoom meetings. To make browsing a bit more private I went and activated some of the settings from privacytools.io, but I can't remember changing privacy settings before the problems started occuring. On the Firefox Beta channel I don't see any video streams (not even my own) and on the nightly channel I hear others audio speed up and they sound like mice and they here me extemely slow.

Does anyone else have these issues or an idea which settings might cause this?

I get a email from a web site that I have to log into on a regular basis.They are telling me starting today the web site will require TLS 1.2. I went to https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html to check like the web site informed me to do so. Click on Continue

Once the page completes the test, scroll down to the Protocol Features section. If Yes is displayed next to TLS 1.2, your browser will continue to work as it currently does with Talent Suite applications.

Mine shows 1.3 yes but not 1.2. I look it up 1.3 is not backwards compatible. So I changed the security.tls.version.max to 3 now everything for the TLS shows no when I run test I am lost

  Thanks for any help

As per topic title, while downloading files from my university website for class and switching back to a youtube page, I got the strange popup "Would you like to make this document your home page?" I selected no, but I would like to know if this is merely something that can happen at random with Firefox, or potential malware or the like.

Thank you.

Hi,

I'm new to Firefox. I have a Facebook account which I have no issues with when using in Opera. But when I try to sign in to FB on Firefox it doesn't recognise my password. So I changed it yet it still isn't recognised. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, martin.

Firefox 86 "Total Cookie Protection": I want no "automatic exceptions"

Quoted from: https://www.theregister.com/2021/02/24/firefox_cookies_86/ ..."it's Total Cookie Protection With Some Exceptions, Handled Automatically" ..."Meanwhile, Google and its ad tech frenemies are racing to develop various Privacy Sandbox proposals so they can implement behavioral ad targeting"

I don't WANT exceptions! Behavioral ad targeting is exactly what I'm trying to avoid. I don't want Google shaping my searches and influencing my opinions by "telling me what I want to hear"...it thinks! Total Cookie Protection sounded exciting until I read this. How do we force it to work "without automatic exceptions"?

I was excited about this new feature because it might allow me to stay logged in to sites like Google and Amazon without their infamous tracking and search-shaping. If not this setting is pretty useless.

I have been using program for 15 or so years. Now you are starting to act like the other companies. Do I have to find another browser, that respects my choices?

I am trying to enable 2FA on my Firefox account using Authy. I just did it with FB, Twitter, Gmail, Outlook and OKTA and they all worked. However the code generated by Authy is not being accepted by Firefox so that I can enable 2FA. I have verifed that my timezone is correct (-4, no daylight savings) and that the time matches up exactly. Obviously since i was successful with the others, the issue does not exist on my side. Any help?
