I am not sure what is happening but across my devices I sync Firefox on my saved password settings keep getting tuned off. I pretty much have to turn them on every time I start Firefox and it is quite annoying. I have searched this forum some and found solutions that relate to trend micro password manager but I don't have that installed. I am running the latest version of Firefox on mac.

I switched from Safari to Firefox (57.0.4) on my iMac (El Capitan) and noticed that I cannot add an event to my Google Calendar. Before, I was able to do so by clicking on a date. I tried both double-clicking and right-clicking but nothing happens. Also, clicking on the "+" sign which says "Create" does not work. The three-bar menu on the left corner does not work as well.

Trying to login to Paypal. Entered my PW and there is a spinner saying "security challenge." Obviously its stuck trying to load it. There are 4 scripts trying to run according to NoScript. All are Allowed. Including Recaptcha.net. However, the icon is displaying a red "1" which means something is being blocked.

I also toggled "set all on this page to temporarily trusted."

I use a separate container for gmail, so google can't connect my gmail usage to google analytics showing up in other pages. But when I open a link from gmail, I would like it to go to a separate container, either one container per site, or just one big container for all links opened from gmail. For example, someone sends me a link to a nytimes.com article and when I click on it, I want to not have to type in my nytimes login again but I also want it to be separate from my gmail login. This seems not to be possible in vanilla firefox (am I wrong?) but is there an extension that allows this behavior? If my entire question is based on a naive idea of privacy, I'm open to hearing that too. :) Thanks in advance for any help.

I've used Firefox to access my website for years. Suddenly this morning, it won't load after I've signed in. Before logging in, everything looks normal. After logging in, the home page does not load completely and I cannot navigate through the site. I tried on Safari and everything works normally.

I've cleared the cookies and cache, re-started Firefox, even re-started the computer. No luck. The website host thinks it's a firefox issue.

My Firefox version is current (78.1.0esr (64-bit)). I'm on Mac OS 10.11.

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

I use Firefox for Mac ver. 79.0 and up until now when I logged on to htpps:www.michiganlottery.com and enabled location it always worked until now. I read an article that said Mozilla was sued for the code used for location and that Mozilla will be creating their own location services soon and giving users like myself something like a PIN number that is good for say 10,000 uses. Is that true and is the reason my location when enabled doesn't work anymore? Could you email me the procedure to enable if I missed something to: compute38209@aol.com Thank you.

Hi folks! I'm currently using an website that could as well be a standalone app. I'd love it to show up in my Mac dock as a normal app, similar to what the "Create shortcut" functionality does in Chrome. Create a desktop shortcut to a website Firefox's "shortcut" functionality seems to only work in Windows, and does not seem to provide the same full experience. I'd love to see this feature in Firefox soon.
