Hey there,

When first opening the MozillaVPN app (in Linux) it gave me to option to consent or decline to data collection of technical information. I consented but would like to decline/turn it off. I know how to do this for the Firefox browser, through the settings and privacy tab; however, I'm having trouble finding a way to turn off / opt-out for MozillaVPN.

Thanks!

(I'm asking this question in this Firefox forum because I was unable to make a new post in the MozillaVPN forum.)

Hello,

The pop-up blocker exceptions are not working for some sites which I, of course, use a lot. The sites are listed in the exceptions, but Firefox stubbornly continues to block them. I sincerly consider walking away from Firefox (notwithstanding I love it and being a long term user), because it happens with sites I frequently use on a daily base.

I've looked around but none of the solutions work for me as those articles are rather old.

My version of Firefox: 99.0.1 (64bit) running under Windows 10 Pro

Hoping to find a solution here.

Hi,

I have my Thunderbird 91.8.0 (64-bit) (Fedora 35) setup to use PGP aliases- This worked well quite some weeks. Since a short time (like one week or so) I do encounter a problem:

First when trying to use an alias, thunderbird told me there was no key for encrytion found. So I checked my settings and the profile directory for the .json file containing the alias rules. It was there as expected. Trying to fix the problem I did copy the file, rename it an change the mail.openpgp.alias_rules_file value to the new name. Now it would find the file again but tell me the corresponding public PGP key is missing.

I checked using the Thunderbird integrated OpenPGP Key Manager and indeed the public key for the alias was missing. So I did try to import this key again after downloading and saving it (from https://keys.openpgp.org/) but this always throws an error which doesn't tell a reason (see picture).

Btw: I also checked the pubring.gpg file with grep and it seems like the desired key is in there (I'm not very experienced in using grep but the output was somethig like "found occurence in binary file" for: grep XXXX (name of the owner of the key) ~/.thunderbird/NNNNxrez.default-release/pubring.gpg)

Does anyone know what the problem is or how to fix it? Maybe there is just a format problem when trying to import from https://keys.openpgp.org/ https://keys.openpgp.org/] ? Cause I did test it with another key from there with the same result...

Would appreciate any help or tip what to try!

Cheers!

Hi.

I need to print out my saved passwords. I have no cellphone to access, just my laptop and printer. I only use Firefox and no other browser. If my laptop gets hacked or breaks down, then I need to use someone else's computer to access my passwords in an emergency, and can't access my passwords to do so...so printing them out periodically is the smartest thing I can think of.

Help, anyone? This is pretty important to me. Thank you!

Hi everyone,

Last Saturday, I was able to sign in to Firefox Add-Ons Firefox Add-Ons and submit a pre-release of an add-on I'm working on. But today, I'm being forced to enable 2FA to simply log in to the site. I don't want to enable 2FA, I just don't need it. Can someone explain me why is this happening ? Can I just log in and submit my add-on's update ?

I've tried to sign in two different MacBooks (M1 12.1 and Yosemite 10.10.5), using two different Firefox versions (99.0.1 and 78.15.0esr). Also, I haven't enabled 2FA in my personal account.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there. I'm in the process of switching from Chrome and I want to import my passwords.

I first tried the 'import from Chrome' option - it says it's successful, but nothing has actually been added. Same result after several attempts.

I then tried the csv route. I found out I had to change the config settings, so I did just that, but the 'import CSV' option still isn't showing even after a reset.

So now I'm at a dead end. Any bright ideas please? TIA!

FYI I'm using Firefox 99.0.1

My macbook is a 2019 16", running Monterey 12.3.1, and has the touch ID sensor on the top right of the keyboard. I love having it for all my log-ins, but can only make it work in Safari. When I look online I'm told to go into settings> privacy > and then just choose the toggle to turn it on. My version of Firefox (which says it's up to date) does not have that option in the Privacy and Security section of settings. Any thoughts? I'd rather use Firefox than Safari, but that is a HUGE feature to me. Thanks!

Local Machine: Dell Inspiron i5-7200 / 16 GB RAM / Local Op Sys: Ubuntu 20.04LTS

Firefox version: 99.0 FFDE version: 100.0b5

Node.js version 14.18.1 npm version 6.14.15


I had a Node.js web app running on my local machine all usual browsers like Firefox, Firefox Dev Ed (FFDE), Chromium, Edge, Opera, etc till recently.

Recently it shows an error when run on Firefox (also on Chromium, Opera and Edge) although continuing to run okay on FFDE.

Firefox Error: Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at file:///home/sandbar/Desktop/nodeapp-local/undefined. (Reason: CORS request not http).

Edge Error: Access to XMLHttpRequest at 'file:///home/sandbar/Desktop/nodeapp-local/undefined' from origin 'null' has been blocked by CORS policy: Cross origin requests are only supported for protocol schemes: http, data, chrome-extension, edge, https, chrome-untrusted.


Naturally, I need to test the web app on my local machine using several browsers before I should upload it to a server and trial it there.

So how do I configure the browser and/or app to allow access to local machine files ?

My email address is a certain string of letters @gmail.com, but the junk I'm getting is addressed to entirely different letters and nearly always @somekindofnonsense or any other string other than @gmail.com. How can I block these emails? Please be specific because I'm an old guy just struggling to keep up with technology. Can you tell me step-by-step how to block them? THANK YOU!

Hello,

I noticed that a setting on the about:config page was removed: the "security.csp.enable" setting. I was using this setting to disable CSP to be able to load local JS scripts on some non-locally hosted sites, for debugging and development, work related purposes.

Was this setting really removed? Is there a way to disable CSP on Firefox on the latest version?

Thanks! Gabriel.

Whenever I click on a web search link that goes to Facebook, my Firefox browser back button is cleared. This makes it impossible to go back to my original search easily.

When I remember and notice, I open link in new tab to retain my history.
This started happening several months ago and can be frustrating when doing deep searches.
 I hope there is a security setting I am missing that is allowing Facebook access to my browsing history!
Thanks for your help!
