Gmail 2-Step Identification Issues

I have 2-Step verification on Gmail. When I go to log in I get this: Insert your security Key into the USB. I cancel out of it and get this: Your phone can’t locate your device. Move your phone closer to the device where you’re signing in, and then try again. I "Try another way" and I try to get a "one-time security code" and it forwards me to a website where the cycle begins again. If I try "Auto-recovery" it sends me to google. I can access Gmail on the same machine via Chrome, but would rather not. I can also get it on Firefox on my phone.

I did recently turn on two-step and it asked if I wanted a key, and I thought it might mean Google Authentication, I think it meant a USB key.

Any thoughts? I rather not give up Firefox.

Hi everyone,

Up until the latest FF release, opening an .ics (calendar file) link defaulted to the OS's preferred application; in my case Outlook. Now, every time I click on an .ics link FF asks where I want to save the file. I schedule ZOOM meetings all day and heavily rely on this feature.

I tried looking in FF's Files and Applications section in settings and .ics is not even listed as a file extension. I don't know how to add it.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Yesterday I started having trouble logging into Gmail and associated apps (calendar, contacts, docs, sheets, shared folders, etc., as well as google.com) in Firefox. All other sites are loading with no problems. Google apps are working fine in Chrome. Still having problems today.

My office uses Google Workplace for everything so this is really messing me up, I've lost several hours of work trying to get things to load. The IT person told me that if Firefox is having problems I should use Chrome instead. I hate Chrome! I want to use Firefox, but I can't get my work done if it won't load Google apps.

Please note that I have tried the following solutions thus far: restarted Firefox (several times) restarted computer removed add-ons cleared cached web content cleared cookies and site data refreshed Firefox solution at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1200943 solution at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1132284 solution at https://knowtechie.com/is-mozilla-firefox-not-loading-pages-for-you-heres-the-fix/

After each fix things start working for a while but then everything Gmail-related freezes or crashes and I need to start all over again. Help!!!

I was using lightspeed POS and routinely get a dialogue box asking me if i am sure i want to do something. in an effort to save .05 seconds, i selected do not let this website ask me again. this unfortunately broke a site function of doing the thing that requires confirmation and im sure broke countless other functions that rely on that confirmation. how do i undo?

Ive cleared cookies and site data, thinking it was sort of a cookie thing and it would reset, but no avail.

Hi

I don't know what's happened to cause this, but for the last few days if I grab a torrent file online, I only get the option to save the file, no option to automatically open in my torrent client.

I have been to Firefox general settings, and Applications - "Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing" but .torrent is not listed. When I search "torrent" in the Applications search box, I get only "magnet" as a result, nothing for "torrent" files (see image).

Any advice on how to automatically open .torrent files from the web in my torrent client would be appreciated.

Hi. On dictionary.com when I type in a word in the search bar and press enter, it works fine, but when I am on a definition page on dictionary.com (not the homepage) and I type a word in the search bar and press enter, it does not work. The page does not respond.

Also when I am on biblehub.com and I type in a reference (like Genesis 1:1) in the search bar at the top and press enter, I get directed to a blank page: https://biblemenus.com/topmain/send.php?q=undefined

In the search bar at the top of biblehub.com I must click the magnifying glass icon in order for it to work, which is annoying.

Note that a while ago (I don´t know how long ago) these things used to work correctly. I don´t know whether a Firefox update caused the problem or whether it was a change to the coding on the webpages. I am on the latest version of Firefox. Neither of these problems happen on Chrome.

Let me know what can be done to fix it. Thank you.

I'm running Firefox 100.0 (64 bit) on windows 10 pro 21H2. I've been using Firefox to access Flightradar24 to view real time flight across the globe. All of a sudden today the map doesn't appear any more . I think they use Google maps and overlay their info.

The maps show properly in MS EDGE and Google Chrome.

I am in the USA. Every time, on any page or website that I need to provide credit card info, when I click in the box to type in the CC numbers/expiration date/CCV, a window pops up as it should (for auto-fill) with my credit card information. In that window, I can scroll over the different credit cards, click on the one I want to use, and it SHOULD auto-fill into the box where the numbers would normally be typed in. Now, the window still pops up and I can scroll over the credit cards and choose one, but when I click on any of the particular credit cards, the auto-fill doesn't work. The boxes in "settings" are checked to allow auto-fill. It worked for months, then just stopped. Thanks for your assistance!

How can I stop Firefox from asking for the master password for bookmarks on start up? Often I don't need to use a password. It is very annoying and I think it is dangerous because then if I step away anyone has the use of my passwords. Firefox used to only ask when you needed to use a password to login to a site. I think this change is dangerous.

Not sure when it began, probably before the current version, i.e. it's not related to the latest update. When exiting, everything seems fine at first but then Crash Reporter pops up. If I try to restart my Windows/PC with FF open, the restarting becomes blocked by Firefox, so I have to cancel the restart and deal with Crash Reporter first.

The same crash happens in Troubleshoot Mode.

I don't have any special security software (aside from Malwarebytes with real-time protection disabled).

Latest reports: bp-3e00592e-2756-43bf-9642-01b550220502 bp-2435de7c-8279-4d85-b151-b94380220502

Signature is different (almost) every time but as far as I remember no crash felt any different from the two crashes above. For example: bp-093ec6db-d0e2-4f05-8dbd-e03b50220429 bp-47c1b14c-cba2-4007-9f53-089fc0220429 bp-f4ca1090-d760-4209-a47f-8d40e0220429 bp-4a506f38-75ac-4f62-b4bc-324f00220429 bp-d9a19762-4234-450e-82ed-d41940220429 bp-1b0e9da0-29e6-4107-ad7e-ed77f0220429

So, for a few months now, the preview panel in Firefox has been popping up with every successful download of a file from online. Its a bit inconvenient because anytime it pops up, it basically tabs me off a page and interrupts my writing or the like. This wasn't an issue last year when after successful downloads, the downloads icon in the toolbar just lights up blue to signify a successful download. The preview panel popping up every time Firefox successfully downloads something (due to reasons, I download files in bulk from multiple sources) is incredibly irritating. The problem goes away when I just remove the download icon/panel from the toolbar entirely. I just wanna know WHY this bizarre phenomenon happens.
