I would like to disable Firefox Lockwise and revert to the original password manager. Previous posts suggested using about:config to edit the signon.management.overideURI. However, this line does not exist in my config. I am using Firefox version 77. If I cannot get back to the original password manager I am sorely tempted to remove Firefox 77 and install an older version!

Seit einem der neuen Updates sind meine Passwörter nicht mehr gespeichert. Ich habe daher mein Profil neu gemacht und wie vorgeschlagen ein Master Passwort vergeben. Daraufhin wurden die Passwörter wieder gespeichert.

Allerdings hielt dies keine 3 Tage. Heute war schon wieder alles weg.Woran kann das liegen und wie kann man das wieder beheben?

When you open a new tab a "snippet" is shown at the bottom of the page. According to the preferences this is for "Updates from Mozilla and Firefox".

Now I'm starting to see messages about how I can fight racism and how I should be proud of who I am.

Is there a way to limit the messages to things that are actually related to Firefox? I want to see important technical updates. I see enough political statements everywhere else.

Even though I say "never save" for logging in to a website, when I login the next time, it asks me again "if I want to save password". I have also gone to the exception list and manually entered the websites, and even though I block and save that website, the websites disappear from the exception list and I am again asked if I want to save password.

I have tried to Clear Cookies and Site Data repeatedly in Standard, Strict and Custom modes with no success and repeated that test when trying to uncheck Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. Incidentally this problem began occurring when Firefox offered me the opportunity to use DNS Over HTTPS. I Like using DNS over HTTPS although it may very well be that hackers and info miners (Phishing) do Not like this new firefox setting and have adjusted their cookies into Permanent SOLs. Google hires hackers for many things. How can you help me you ask? Please repair the problem.

When I want to print a page of Firefox I get the response: "Firefox is blocking popups". When I try to change this, I get the mask for exception, but only for websites, not for things like printing. Why do I need a popup to print, why can't I define printing as exception?

Is the cookie clearing function of CCleaner 100% redundant for those who use only Firefox as a browser and choose settings that delete all or nearly cookies when the browser closes? Ideally, I would like to dispense with CCleaner for cookie clearance and depend only on my Firefox browser settings for that. [The various other functions of CCleaner, and its overall value, are not part of my question.]

I use a Bing Searchbox in Firefox Browser. When I do a search, I get a popup at the bottom of my screen asking me if I want to download Microsoft Edge. It gives me two options: Download now, or later. I have to hit "later" to get rid of it.

Is there a way for me to delete this popup in Firefox. I don't want Edge. I want Firefox. Please let me know if there is a solution to this. Thank you!

Instructions say to use one by clicking LAUNCH PROFILE IN NEW BROWSER. That command does not appear anywhere. ???? IF I could find that command, where could I find the command SET AS DEFAULT PROFILE?

I am trying to go to real websites, for instance it will not let me go to www.equifax.com I know this is a real website, but Mozilla won't let me access it. Not only that, but once Mozilla rejects it, I can't access the site through any other browser. Please help. I need to get into these sites.
