Hi,

I have been using Firefox sync for many years now. I just got a new computer and when I tried to connect with my account, I received a message saying Firefox has locked my account.

Would you please fix this asap? I use your browser to work and not having my account back would force me to switch to Chromium, which I don't want to. Please note my account and my email address are both legit. Thanks

There are extensions that I am not using 99% of the time or use them at one website.

There a two options:

  • Make UX more friendly: add button to list an extensions with checklist to disable OR add "Disable extension" option inside menu between "Manage extension" and "Remove extension" (by right mouse click at extension icon at Toolbar.
  • Be cool if Mozilla Team will develop mechanism to switch between extension modes. As example I create my default exts mode (ublock, firefox notes, multi-account containers), but also time by time I save webpages by SingleFile extension, also I use proxy extensions so I create list for it. Lists may be as additional (default + proxy) as independent from scratch (proxy only).

Why? Privacy by isolation processes in the browser.

So, it is possible for you to view sensitive information from the Firefox memory cache after you log out an web application and keep Firefox open.
