In JavaScript I did addEventListener('storage', ...), and it's working fine as long as I use localStorage.setItem(), .removeItem(), or .clear(). However, when I use the "Clear Data..." button under "Settings | Privacy and Security" it seems the event does not fire. I noticed that in Chrome the corresponding settings option to clear all data does fire the storage listener, and this is the behavior I'm looking for.

Thanks.

I have a need to use regular browser (not kiosk), but disable the "open downloads folder" once a file has been downloaded. This is opening a file manager (thunar or alike) which then allows the user to browse the filesystem and open a terminal emulator from /usr/bin.

Using the policies, I am able to prompt for downloads, or select a download location, however I have been unable to completely stop the user from opening the download folder which opens a file browser.

Is there any way I can select policies or profile options for disabling the option for opening download folder?

Hello,

In the last week, I have noticed an error message on a site that I usually log onto, and am unable to do so which looks like this: Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.plus.net. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem. I have contacted the web site owners, and they have said it is my browser as the site is working correctly.

The second issue is that I am able to log onto my gumtree homepage, but unable to access my account due to the following: I have checked my Firefox browser and it is running the latest version 105.0.1 I have noted that on the bottom left of the page when trying to access my messages or manage my ads the following is happening but times out after 15 seconds: Unable to perform tls handshake to sa.gumtree

Gumtree have said this is a browser issue, so that is why I am contacting you for assistance.

I look forward to hearing from you, at your earliest convenience.

Best regards, Arvin Kumar

Firefox History

Hello -

Is there a way to see all History (browsing and anything else you accessed via FF) since it was last cleared?

When I click on 'History -> Manage' I get a window called Library and can only see Today, Yesterday and Last 7 Days. Is that it? I am certainly no computer expert-- still using Win 7 which does everything I need. But I am going on my observations; and from the last 30 min reading people's issues wth accessing history, it seems that Firefox has gone backweards in this area. As there used to be a way to access 'All History'

Chrome has an excellent History setup - it retains all history since it was last cleared, and which I have often used to my great delight. Could go back many months.

Can FF only access the last 7 days of History?

Thanks

PS, I tried clicking on Share Data for this post but it says it cannot access it. Then I tried clicking on the link that it suggested but I went to it and not only lost all my typing (this is the second attempt) but I don't have a fault as that page may suggest. My FF, which is the lastest one, seems to be working normally, it's just the limited History I have an issue with. And the reason for this Post. Thanks

Trying to use ProctorU with Firefox 104.0.2 on Windows 11 Home, and I am getting the following message : "Monitor Count : You may only use 1 monitor during your exam. Your monitor count could not be found". I searched for possible fixes, and someone mentioned removing fingerprinters, and possibly also remove cookies and tracking content from Firefox enforcement. I removed all 3 and that did not help. I also tried clearing cookies and site data and also cached web content, this did not help. Is there some other setting in Firefox that might be preventing the detection of the monitor count? Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

I typically opt-out of crash-reporting and privacy invasive features yet when I checked my settings:

"Allow Firefox to send technical and interaction data to Mozilla" was enabled along with "Allow Firefox to install and run studies".

Did I overlook on installation or was I opted-in by a Firefox update?

Hi everyone,

I set up my Firefox for Android to delete cookies and cache when I click on "Close".

I was happy with it but I realized several months ago than websites as leboncoin.fr, amazon.fr, decathlon.fr (yes i'm french), didn't keep me loged in but remember what I had looked for and where I was. This problem is permanent.

I don't have this problem with Firefox for Windows.

So it seems something is nor cleared from the app when I close it.

Thank you very much for your help !

I have installed latest version of Thunderbird and all works as it should but 2 things seem wrong and not sure if bug, incorrect setting or just not allowed:

1 When I send encrypted email to myself it is automatically unencrypted and readable. I would prefer that any encrypted email I receive forces me to enter my private password every time. Can I configure this? 2 I would like to set Tbird to automatically encrypt all emails to an address I have the public key for. however It looks as if I can only set 'encrypt all' or 'don't encrypt' which means I need to manually select for each email or have to set as 'encrypt all' and then get message for almost all recipients that they don't have public key etc.

Advice appreciated.

I have tried everything that the Forums suggest but to no avail, even checking my AV isn't blocking things. It's all very well TB automatically blanking these images, but where is the control that allows us to overide it?!! This is getting very frustrating! If it can't/wont be fixed soon, then I'll have no option but to change my support for another email app. I can "Select All" in an email, copy & paste it to a Word Processor App like Textmaker and everything appears including images! So why not show them in the B***** emails?!!
