I have had a primary/master password set in Firefox for years. It only prompted me to enter it once per session. Since version 90, it now pops up at least once a day at random times to ask for the password again. This has happened on 3 different devices where Firefox is installed.

How can I stop it doing that or at least extend the time to a week? I know there are hidden config options for these, but they look to be on the default values, so have never changed.

I'm asking if it's possible for Firefox to Not Share USER Personal Data with Google Chrome. I have set all my preferences in Firefox browser to not share, be secure, use private browser, etc. to a the extent possible based on settings. I don't have "location services" turned on on my Mac or Ipad mini and yet some things open up and they know where I am. I feel like I've lost any ability to maintain privacy and that I feel I cannot control it as even setting up settings, I'm aware that some coding only gives impression your safe but in fact YOU ARE NOT!! I am security conceous to a fault and yet I don't feel safe on either device. Can Mozilla/Firefox stop sending user data to Google Chrome to help with keeping privacy user personal data. I saw an article recently that says they are testing .05 of their users to in effect "from MY PERSONAL OPINION" they are stealing this data for them to use WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. Government protections are not kept up to speed and using a computer these days seems to insist that I give up my personal rights to MY DATA. It's ALWAYS MY DATA and not theirs... Using a "any service" does not make it your data but they do have a responsibility to keep it safe and it should not be shared out side MY express consent. It seems we are losing that ability more and more. So I'm asking if Mozilla can stop sharing USER PERSONAL DATA with Google Chrome?

The Original email address I used to create my Firefox account is lost.

When I look in the support site the advice is to create a new Firefox Account under a valid email address and then I will be able to sync my data.

I created a new mail address, but if I try to create that new Firefox account with that I get the notification that the primary email address of the account is needed to sign in. But that account does not exist anymore. So I don't see the form I have to fill in to create my new account. Can you help me?

I am no longer able to access the homepage of hollywoodreporter.com. As soon as I try it, a pop-up window titled "Manage Your Privacy" asks me to "Accept All", "Reject All" or "Manage Settings". (See attachment.) When I click "Accept All", nothing happens. When I click "Manage Settings", the pop-up window just turns grey and I can't do anything but close the tab and start over. Clicking "Reject All" only produces a warning, but does not close the pop-up either. I have cleared the browser cache and the cookies. I am using the latest version of Firefox. Any suggestions how this problem might be resolved are welcome. I can still access the homepage using other browsers, but I would prefer to do it with Firefox...

How can I enable Firefox in Windows Defender Firewall?

I'm using Windows Defender Firewall in Windows 10, and I have blocked all Inbound and Outbound connections, created a New Rule for Firefox (version 78.11.0_ESR), and allowed the program to access the internet from the installation path: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe". However, internet access is inaccessable? Does Firefox makes some DETOUR route without my knowelage or is it just me and my moderate IQ? All other applications have full respect to Windows Defender Firewall rules. Thank you.

Stop repetetive "Accept Risk" for mkcert SSL certificate?

In my dev laptop I installed an SSL cert using mkcert. Works fine in all desktop browsers. They don't even prompt to accept the "risk" and continue. But in my Android phone on the same LAN (with the dev subdomain in dns) I get that prompt from both Chrome and Firefox. That would be acceptable, except Firefox prompts pretty much every time I return focus to the app. It gets annoying having to click two extra buttons (Advanced then Accept Risk and Continue) for every code change that needs to be tested in all browsers.

Is there any way to make Android Firefox permanently accept the cert or any other solution?

One of the other volunteers I work uses Thunderbird to send her emails for multiple accounts, and I'm not sure how to fix this problem.

I know she has at least two different email accounts set up in her Thunderbird program, one is her personal business account (@domain1.com), and the other is for a charity we both help out with (@domain2.org). Both of the domains have SPF, DKIM, and DMARC set up in the servers that send out the email.

I'm not sure how or why this is happening, but when she sends out an email using her @domain2.org email address, it seems to go through the server for @domain1.com. I can see it's doing this, because I've had her send me an email from her @domain2.org account to my personal email (a @gmail.com account), then looked at the header information. The reply to email is for @domain2.org, but the SPF and DKIM info is the IP range and DKIM record of her @domain1.com address.

I'm hoping this all makes sense. TL;DR: it looks like even though she can select and send email from either account, it always has the @domain1.com SPF and DKIM info attached. Is this because she imported the accounts into Thunderbird wrong, or something else is going on. I'm not sure who hosts her @domain1.com email, but I know the @domain2.org email is hosted through Google Workspace.

A recent software update, probably from my server, att.net caused a full day of problems that slowly resolved themselves, but I still can't send emails. The error message is; "An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: Email rejected. Please verify that your email address is correct in your account settings and try again." I have checked my email address in settings and outbound server settings, and see nothing changed or abnormal. I'm using G-mail as a back-up, now, and I still receive inbound messages in Thunderbird. Thanks for any help. Denis

I'm on firefox 90.0.1 on Mac OSX Big Sur 11.2.3. When I try to delete a site certificate that I have (that is about to expire), it appears deleted, but when I open the certificates page again it reappears. When I restart Firefox after deletion it reappears. When I delete cert9.db from my default profile after closing firefox, and then reopen, it still reappears. When I uninstall Firefox, delete the default profile folder from App Data and the Mozilla and Firefox folders from my caches, it still reappears (I also deleted the update folder).

I am doing sync between this mac, my phone, and another computer, but I ONLY have bookmarks, Add-ons, and history. Might the sync be also syncing my certificates?

Help/tips would be appreciated.
