I am attempting to perform a 2 steps verification.

Firefox is asking me: "Open your authentication app and enter the security code it provides." What "Authentication app"?? On my Mac? On my iPhone? I have been unable to figure out what Firefox means.

I have tried a number of those apps, but none of the codes was accepted (Authenticator, Google's Authenticator, iDnow).

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. /Boris D.

Hello! For a long time, I used the Download Star add-on in the Firefox browser on Android. It was the only extension that allowed you to download videos from any site. After updating the browser on the phone to version 80, this add-on disappeared and can no longer be installed. For the sake of this extension, I removed version 80 and reverted to version 68. Tell me how can I install Download Star back?

How group policy work for browser.cache.disk.parent_directory

Some years ago I pointed my Firefox cache drive to H:\Firefox. When I updated to 68esr I set the value in the GPO to the same folder. about:config shows the preference as locked.

Recently I decided to move the cache folder to the same drive as the profile folder. So I edited the group policy to point to F:\users\Tanya\Firefox. Updated the group policy and opened firefox. It continued to use H:\Firefox.

So set the policy to not configured and about:config showed h:\firefox. So as a test I set the group policy to iamcountessconsuelabananahammock (Not even a valid path name). No complaints, but firefox continued to write to h:\firefox.

So it seems the only purpose of the group policy is to lock the value, and the content of the GPO is not relevant at all. Is this by design

I can't figure out how to find Collections in my updated version of Firefox Android (8-16-20). I keep reading the directions and can't find it. I only see 3 dots at the top, and can't find anything related to Collections in those menus. Help please! I've been spending a lot of time on this. Thanks.

To create new collections:

   Open a new tab by tapping the + icon in the Open Tabs section on the Home screen.
   Enter a keyword or URL in the address bar.
   Tap the three dots at the bottom of the screen.
   Tap Save to Collection.
   Tap Add new collection.
   Skip this step and proceed to the next step if this is your first time creating a collection since the Add new collection button will not display.
   Enter a name for the new collection in the text field that displays.
   Tap Done from your virtual keyword. 

The collection now displays within the Collections section on the Home screen.

Every time a website asks me to "verify my humanity" via Recapcha (select all the photos with traffic lights, etc), the pictures never come up, as if they are off screen somewhere. These Recapcha things are on tons of websites, so it simply isn't something that can be avoided. I won't be able to use this browser any more if someone can't help me with this, it's very surprising that apparently no one else has complained about it

When, I try to connect the wifi, wifi will connected after few hour automatically. It show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at mnit.ac.in. If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

Try again later.
 Check your network connection.
 If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please give your valuable suggestion.

we have all Win10 in our enviromnet with 200+ endpoints all running FF as default browser. Our core banking platform is supported in FF and many of our 3rd party apps require us to use FF. Since the FF update in June, we are having random users crash everyday and the only thing that will get them working is to re-install FF we have the latest ESR and the regular version all on latest versions . Out of 200 or so PCs, we have at least 4 or 5 random users crashing daily. its not happening for me, but for many others its a regular thing.

Is there a paid option for FF support to help troubleshoot this? we cannot just go to another browser at this time. below is an example of error. can provide crash reports if needed. we have sent some crash reports but nothing so far has fixed this. Boss man thinks its due to one program or another causing this to close xul.dll __ just started crashing again with every launch.
