I recently upgraded my hardware and wiped my old drive, and I assumed I would be able to login through google directly and just recover my bookmarks that way. However, I can ONLY get in through a password (that I KNOW, but maybe its a character off, its driving me crazy) to recover my bookmarks despite being able to login to mozilla using my main email; which I have access to. I havent reset my password yet, so my bookmarks are probably still uploaded there. Very frustrating I was never notified that they changed it so that if you reset your password you lose your bookmarks, otherwise I would've written down this password. I've been collecting these bookmarks for years before this. is there a way to recover it through my gmail login?

Thanks for any help, Eric

Although strict privacy is set, I am able to logg into websites, although lock icon displays message "Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla"

Hello,

NOTICE: Currently using Firefox 120.0.1 "Update disabled by your system administrator" I am unable to update the browser, the computers are from the public library.

Like I state in the Subject, I configure the browser to strict privacy level, and I am able to visit any site I want. No problem. But on all of these, when I click the lock icon on the address bar I read "Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla." In fact, right now, I am visiting this website and I got that notice. View image "Firefox broser does not recognize the certificate issuer fortinet but I can visit the firefox suport website - Screenshot 2024-01-28 172732.png"

WOW... View the image "certificate issuer not recognized by Firefox - fortinet - when visiting support.firefox.com - Screenshot 2024-01-28 173041.png" for some of the info I get if I view more information about the certificate.

Then, after I logged out, the "Clear cookies and site data" link that appears after clicking the lock icon I mentioned before do not appear.

View the image "UNable to clear cookies and site data - proton.me - Screenshot 2024-01-28 141951 - edited.png"

In this same computer, I got the control "Clear cookies and site data." View image "able to clear cookies and site data - virustotal.com - Screenshot 2024-01-28 141825.png"

So more than one question:

I read other posts where users are unable to visit a website which has a certificate issued by an issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla. Why am I able to visit these websites?

What can I expect of the non appearing "Clear cookies and site data" link I described before?

Are these computers like totally hacked?

Microsoft has changed securities for mails using now Oauth2 . Extern app like thunderbird on mac must used a password based on Oauth2 on a mac and mail works correctly.

But If you want to add the same values on another mac, the system replies to log on a server like school server,enterprise server. If you don't have external server and you have only a personal mail you cannot use hotmail ,outlook on other mac. What can we do to avoid this and to have mails on several mac PC's.

As of January 2024, I am constantly being asked for a Primary Password when I use the Firefox browser. I do not believe I ever set a Primary Password or Master Password with Firefox, and I have been using Firefox for many years. When I go to the Settings page, it says to confirm my current Primary Password in order to change it. But I need to know my current password to do that. I also unchecked Primary Password, and got a pop-up that said if I remove my Primary Password my information will not be protected if my computer is compromised. Obviously, I don't want that to happen. Is it possible I am being asked for a Primary Password because I am using a VPN? Please advise on how to resolve this problem. I can't change my password, and I can't confirm ever setting one so I am concerned. Thank you.

Hello, I'm seeking assistance with my website, https://blogbuzzz.com/, which I frequently access and manage using Mozilla Firefox. I've been encountering slow loading times, formatting & Security warning issues. This issue seems to be specific to Firefox, as I don't experience it in other browsers. Could you please help me understand why this is happening and how to resolve it? Any insights into browser-specific settings or adjustments that I need to consider for optimal website performance in Firefox would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!"

My laptop is often "borrowed"; access to my "recently bookmarked" items can (occasionally) be inappropriate. I am surprised that there is not a 'easy to access' method to toggle it OFF (!?) I found the below describing how to does this. HOWEVER, I do not find the key (showRecentlyBookmarked).

SUGGESTIONS ?

using: Windows 10 Home 22H2 build 19045.3930


Directly Edit a Preference The menu item switches a hidden preference from true to false, and you can do that directly as follows: (A) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful. (B) In the search box above the list, type or paste book and pause while the list is filtered (C) Double-click the browser.bookmarks.showRecentlyBookmarked preference to switch the value from true to false

I've created (multiple times) a app password on https://account.live.com/proofs/AppPassword. I let Thunderbird autodetect the servers which seems to work ( (imap) outlook.office365.com:993 and smtp.office365.com:587 )

But the password is rejected. The user interface in Thunderbird is bit unclear what exactly fails. Is there a possibility to see where in the handshake to connection is rejected?

Hello,

While in my internet banking it is not possible to copy/paste the IBAN, the sum or just the name or anything. No matter if I used the context menu copy/paste function or the keyboard shortcuts. I am trying to copy from a Google Drive opened text file or a template saved in my online banking.

In Chrome there was no issue with copy/paste.

Outside of my banking, there are no issues with copy/paste.

I expect it is a security setting somewhere, do you know which one it is?

Thank You!

Dear community,

since some recent update I am asked for a primary password every time I open the browser, which is higly annoying. I like my passwords protected by a primary password and in former times it was only asked for when trying to reveal a saved password. I know this has probably to do with me using Firefox sync, because I use the browser on my Android too but I would like to keep my devices synced. Besides: On my phone I am only asked for a fingerprint when accessing passwords, not every single time I open the app. There must be a way to reconfigure this on a desktop, right?

Despite reading almost 100 questions about this exact issue asked for years, there still seems to be no answer, and no fix to get this function to work properly.

Checking the box should completely remove the drop box for location, and the entire point is that it should ask you where to save every file,instead of defaulting.
