I wanted to change the password of my Firefox account and also generate a recovery key, but whenever I try it says "invalid password". The old password is correct, though, as I can use it to log into my account. I've tried multiple times on two computers and checked and re-checked the password, but the error message keeps appearing.

In an announcement, Mozilla expressed urgent plans to start filtering out “disinformation” at the browser level before it even has the chance to show up in an internet search or on a website.

Rehashing the same scripted lies about the “siege” and “take-over” in Washington, D.C., that resulted in a handful of people gaining access to the Capitol building on Jan. 6, Mozilla says every tool in the arsenal needs to be deployed to prevent “white supremacy” from being “reinforce[d]” online.

“… as reprehensible as the actions of Donald Trump are, the rampant use of the internet to foment violence and hate, and reinforce white supremacy is about more than any one personality,” wrote Mozilla’s Mitchell Baker.

“Donald Trump is certainly not the first politician to exploit the architecture of the internet in this way, and he won’t be the last. We need solutions that don’t start after untold damage has been done.”

I have recently had a pop up open whenever I open a news page from the site MSN. It says You have chosen to open impression. Which is application/octet-stream from : https://impression.link. Then it asks what firefox should do with this file? Two options: Open with & then a browse dropdown. Or save file. I'm already looking at the news item in the browser, so I don't need an option to open the item. And I don't want to save it. Just read it. I don't knbow why this pop up suddenly appeared but it is very annoying. My searches have found the pop up is not necessariuly dangerous, but there is no information provided on how to get rid of it. Anyone else experienced this issue? And is someone able to tell me how to get rid oif it? Thx. (Pop up image attached).

Hello, I have been using Firefox for so long, and it's one of my favorite web browser on Windows as well as on Android. Firefox update for Android has become frustrating for many people including me, as most of the features aren't available in this new FF. One of them is about:config system settings, where i use to change some usefull features by going through that option. Sadly, this isn't available in the new update as of now. So, I would like to request you that please add this option as soon as possible in the coming updates. Another request would be, to be able to change the dns within the browser for using secure dns like DoH. As this option is available in desktop browser, i will be happy to get this option even on Android as well. Thank you.....

I deleted all my information, data and the Firefox Browser app last year, but my passwords were still leaked. Some passwords I had already changed since the last data breach.

Does anyone know why or how this happened? Is there a way to contact Firefox to delete all of my information permanently from their system to prevent this from happening again?

I use Adguard to block ads on my phone, and I prefer to use Firefox Mobile as my browser. Since the (in my opinion just plain stupid) decision to remove the ability to modify settings via about:config from the production release was made, I have been forced to use the beta. In order to use Adguard properly, I need the ability to trust certs from my local certificate store, not just the browser's internal store. As of around 72 hours ago, I have had to reset the security.enterprise_roots.enabled setting back to true no less than 5 times.

Is anyone else having a similar issue? Can anyone explain what's going on? Should I just start looking for a different browser whose developers don't arbitrarily decide what's best for me?

Our company is using Firefox. We recently have found that you can launch Command Prompt or PowerShell by typing "cmd" or "powershell" into address bar of "Open File" or "Save Page As" menu.

Since we can not accept this behavior for security reasons, we are considering disabling "Open File" and "Save Page As" feature themselves. Is there a way to realize this?

We sought options to disable these features, but could not find any so far. Or If there is alternative solution for this, that would be highly appreciated if you share your knowledge.

I am using Firefox 87 with windows 10. Autofill passwords has always worked, suddenly it no long fills in the password. I have all the correct checks for autofill logon and autofill password, and for FF to ass for both of them on a new site. the information is properly listed in the program list.

I have tried everything i could think of , went to about;config made sure the settings were correct, asked help support page and forums. tried everything tried tried everything what was suggested to solve issue, BUT autofill password still does not work, i have thought of using another program manager, but not sure if that is a good idea thank you very much I sure could use some help with this............ Only other thing i can think is resetting FF but still not sure that would work either. Allen Millner allen-tina@comcast.net
