Mozilla secretly shares your location even when you set permissions and go into admin to disable tracking.

Twitter shares my location with every post I make. I did not allow them to have my location. I experimented and put in another state in the Twitter profile. It still shared my true location. I typed about:config in URL bar, then found geo enabled and set it to false. Restarted my computer and still twitter gets my data. Mozilla makes such a big deal out of not sharing your info. I was disgusted to see this tricky BS. So what is the real way to get rid of someone tracking you? They use your ISP and mozilla gives them the location of your service provider. Does anyone know of another browser and search engine that does not pull this crap? I read the Chrome, does this too.

Tried to buy tickets to events on several different websites. When I hit the "buy tickets" button Firefox does not respond at all. I had to use a different browser which had no problems.

Normally I display bookmarks in the left side bar. Sometimes if I access a Youtube, the video will come up in that sidebar and I can no longer see the bookmarks there. I have to go to view --> sidebars to have them re-displayed there. If I try another youtube after that, the same thing occurs.

It just started recently though I cannot say exactly when. I do not have any add-ons on the system; there are two plugins used for videoconferencing, and they have been in place long before this began happening.

Hello, I am aware that Mozilla has gradually been updating there system. I have not used my system for two months or so and on my return, i am gainind entry to to my Mozilla link. As a consequence I am trying to get reconnected and get back on line. For this reason, I thought that I should relog in and get back to normal, but I am unable to find the route into mozilla to do that. Please advise me on the recommended route I should use, to rectify the connection problem.

Hi all. I'm running Quantum 61.0.2 (64-bit) on openSUSE Tumbleweed. It's a minor problem, but it's a definite annoyance - the Bookmarks Bar does not stay turned on after I reboot my machine. Due to a bit of flakiness on my machine (I do some development and things can get unpredictable), I have to reboot more than I'd like. But I'd also like to keep my Bookmarks Bar open... I have all my reference material bookmarked in the Bar for easy access.

Does anyone know if there's a way to fix this? Some internal setting I can manually change?

Thanks!

To whom it may concern,

After many months of failed attempts to sync firefox, I tried to focus on the firefox account. I discover that I can not neither login/reset password, nor setting up a new account with the very same email I have used in the last 8 years (just a crosscheck).

Please let me know your opinion!

Bests,

GN

Have tried "Refresh Firefox" and a clean install to no avail. After intentionally using the wrong password I'm still presented with the same error instead of "invalid username/password". At this point, I feel confident in saying it's a mess-up on your end.

My home page is https://uk.yahoo.com/. I'm running Firefox 61.0.2 (64 bit) on Windows 10 at latest maintenance level. When I start Firefox the home page is displayed with the seach field enabled and I start to type my query and the characters I have types are displayed. Shortly afterwards the search field is cleared so I have to start again. This is very annoying. Microsoft Edge does not exhibit the same behaviour on the same home page.
