Hello all, my first post because I am trying to move from Chrome to something less 'information hungry' and up to now Firefox feels like a sensible move.

I have been using AdGuard for about a year and it is good at what it does (on Chrome on Windows and Android). On Windows, Adguard and Firefox seem to work together but when installed on Android they do not play nicely!! Virtually every website is inaccessible due to Security Certificate problems.

There is a solution posted by Adguard to install a security certificate but this is comlex for me as a non IT geek so not happy about even trying that.

Question - if I switch off Adguard on Firefox (this is easy in Adguard settings) does the Firefox HTTPS checker do as good a job with regard to HTTPS requirements over and above HTTP websites? This would be a simple solution (for me) unless anyone can offer an equally (or nearly so) solution.

Any help appreciated. Thanks, Frank

Hi,

I am an avid user of Firefox on Windows/Linux/Android. The password saving/auto-filling works great on my Windows and Linux devices. I like that the master password allows me to authenticate before any user credentials are filled in. I did however notice that on my Android Phone, there's no way to force authentication when filling in user credentials. I consider this a great privacy risk, considering that if anyone were to get access to my phone, they would without any hassle get access to a bunch of my accounts. I checked in the settings, and I cannot find a setting for it anywhere.

I am running the latest version of Firefox from Google Play. Firefox version: 84.1.4 (Build #2015785883) Phone: Samsung S10 running Android 10

Thank you.

How to turn off forever the "screenshot" splash notification

I have been asking for this since 2017 i think.

We need a fix to turn off forever the splash notification after taken a screenshot. I have been using the temporary solution of turning on "Pause notifications until Firefox restarts" but we need a definite solution on how to turn that notification off forever.

I wanted to transfer my logins and password from one Computer to another and I managed to do so by copying the logins and Key4 files stored in the profile folder. Now, I am concerned about how easy this process was. Does it mean if my computer is hacked and those 2 files stolen, anyone will be able to access all the websites where I am registered?

Thank you

So, I accidentally clicked a link that takes me to a site I have never logged into. Firefox prompts me with 3 userids. One is more or less a throwaway, but two are for sites I want to be secure.

I have disabled the form history in options. I have selected each item and tried either delete or shift-delete. None of these options work.

The site continues to present me with 3 userid options.

I hope this is not a major security threat since I am the only user on this computer and the site is one I have never visited, but it worries me nonetheless that I cannot remove the Firefox suggestions.

Hi, I received an email this morning supposedly from mozilla support which stated there was a reply to a question I posted here about 5 years ago. Not the kind of person to click links in emails I signed in directly to my Firefox account and searched for replies to my original question and did not see a reply from the poster who was mentioned the email. How can I determine if this email is actually from mozilla and if it is not what should I do with it? I did check my email using the Firefox Monitor and nothing showed up. Thank you.
