I've used Firefox forever, however in the last couple weeks, I can no longer use eBay as the webiste looks weird and my account is inaccessible. (See attachment.)

I've cleared all history/caches/etc. per forum suggestions. No change. So now to use eBay, I have to switch to Safari or Chrome (which I rarely use.)

Using new 2020 Macbook Pro and latest Firefox 80.0 update. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

i have been logged out of some of the sites often. i have a wattpad account and i am constantly logged out of it. in case i try to log back in, i discover my previously saved password doesn't appear. turns out, firefox wouldn't even have it, even after i manually create a new login for the same site. i close the firefox, open it again and the login is gone. i have set firefox to delete my site cookies but have given the right site exceptions. this problem does not stay for other accounts like google or such but only my most recent, such as this. the only add-ons i have is Firefox color, Tab Auto Refresh and Language Tool. it is quite tiring since i visit these sites very often and still be logged out or not have the password hand-in-hand.

Dear Firefox Team, Just now, when I opened a new tab, there was a survey that asked a few question and for answering that, they offered a iPphone Pro. I know it is absurd, but i would like to know if FF carries our surveys in other countries.

Please advice

For the Send websites a "Do Not Track" signal that you don't want to be tracked, one of the options is "Only when Firefox is set to block known trackers".

How do I set Firefox to block known trackers? How do I set Firefox to not block known trackers?

Is having Enhanced Tracking Protection ON the same thing as having Firefox set to block known trackers? So if I turn OFF Enhanced Tracking Protection, Firefox will no longer be set to block known trackers?

I have no that is no computing knowledge--none. So I need very explicit instructions (imagine you're talking to your grandma):

This is what FF tells me is happening: policies.json

{
 "policies": {
   "AppAutoUpdate": true | false
 }

} And in poking around in the files on my computer, I did find this in the folder that holds Firefox. How do I reset it, so that I can update?

If anyone wants to walk me through this (reaaaal slow) --you will surely be rewarded with amazing karma bumps!!

Youtube rented video does not play after purchased. "Licensing error message" after hitting play button. Firefox 95.0b12 is supposed to work. Have latest updates... why won't it work? Seems Firefox/Modzilla not going to fix ongoing issue with rented Youtube/Netflix video rental problem. Is there a fix? Linux user.

Cannot get rented/paid Youtube or Netflix video to run. Message "! Sorry, there was an error licensing this video" pops up onYoutube screen every time when hitting play button. "Free" Youtube videos work just fine, paid content gets this message. Have firefox-9.5.0.2.ta.bz2, use Linux updated software. Followed all previous suggested Support, cannot seem to find fixes that included DRM, Safemode switch, etc. Thanks for previous help, still stuck... anymore ideas appreciated. Also, difference between running "normal and beta", please explain, and how to know "differences?"

Thank you for trying to help me, but many of the suggestions and explanations are dead ends because I cannot get them to work. I cannot get the latest version 95 of Firefox to update despite repeatedly trying to follow the directions, and updating is not occurring "automatically" as stated in all of the problem solving descriptions. When I get certain instructions, it refers me to a "Settings" button, which does not appear/exist on my toolbar(s). This latest inquiry is related to my original question about "licensing" issues error message when trying to view Youtube rented video's. Also, how do you go about updating a Widevine setting, mine is currently 4.10.1582.2. and needs updating. Please help me, I would like to learn how this stuff works, I appreciate any help.
