We run Firefox on all our clerk computers at the public library where I work. Since the most recent update, our online circulation website which we use to check out books, receives a pop-up blocked message every time we try to print a hold receipt for an item. The website has always been added as an exception to our pop-up blockers, and until just after the most recent update, the blocker had no problem allowing the website through. Now it does. I have tried clearing the browser caches, removing and adding the website to the exceptions list again, and restarting the browser, as well as adding different variations of the website to the exceptions list. In the end, we just had to turn the pop-up blockers off. I searched online for anyone else who had this issue, but the ones I found dated back to 2014-2015, and the solution they came up with no longer seems to exist in the Firefox settings. So I'm hoping to find an answer here! Thanks.

I go to my bank's website and try to sign on. There is one box for my ID. When I click on it, an option my my saved ID shows up and my saved ID is populated in the box. That's it (see picture 1). There should be ANOTHER box for my password, but it doesn't show up.

If I use MS Edge, I go to the website and click on the sign-in box. A pop-up appears with 2 boxes, one for my ID and the other for my password (see picture 2). This is how it USED to work in Firefox, but it hasn't for a good month.

I use Privacy Badger, Ghostery, and BitDefender Anti-tracking on this site. They are all turned off and I still have problems. Also, I have the "Block pop-up windows" box UNCHECKED in Permissions.

How do I get back the previous setup?

Firefox version 87.0 (64 bit).

I use Firefox 87 on a number of notebooks duel booting various distros of linux (Mint, Manjaro, and MX Linux) and Windows 10, as well as a desktop running Windows 10.

On the notebooks Firefox is set to always use private browsing mode in both linux and Windows. On the desktop machine it isn't, but I always have private windows open. On the desktop version of Firefox private windows have the purple circle with a mask icon to show they are private. On the machines that are set to always use private mode Firefox never shows that icon, so I have to go on faith that they are private. Is there a reason always private doesn't also have the private icon?

Also, on the machines where Firefox is launched in always private mode, it always open 2 separate windows. This is a consistent thing when in always private mode.

When I type in ANY URL, I want exactly that to be loaded. And not anything else.

When I type in mozilla.rog into the address bar, I want firefox to fetch the page mozilla.rog. I want firefox to try, and if it does not exist, I demand to be notified that it does not exist. With an error message. URL not found. Error 404.

But instead, Firefox silently changes mozilla.rog to mozilla.org (and probably any page e.g. from .rog to .org, and from .ocm to .com , and the like) without my permission, and loads this other page I did not type in.

I do NOT and NEVER allow ANY program to alter my commands without notifying me.

so... which about:config setting disables this autocorrection-behavior?

I really like firefox but have to shut it down to add a new password if I don't use one of yours which are too long and complicated. And I don't think you need to have my passwords. Typical firefox password:

4ut693zdfcp049stev5dd679*. To long and too complicated. And does not give me choice to make my own. It is like a rabid pitbull.

No thanks. I understand this dreadful thing is imbedded? How can I get it to go away? Susan Taylor

I am Getting both "incorrect password" and "your email was returned" errors

I know the password is correct as I can still use it to log in (including logging into these forums) though I am getting this error when trying to create a recovery key or reset my password

For the "your email was returned" error, the email address is typed correctly in my account and I have gotten confirmation emails from FireFox as recently as 2 days ago. I get this error when trying to sign in to sync the Multi-Account Containers addon, as well as when trying to use "forgot password" to get a reset link.

I'm not sure how to proceed with these errors as each issue is preventing me from resolving them on my own.

At one point while I was getting the incorrect password error I got a message that my account is locked and an email would be sent to me for confirmation...though of course that also got "your email was returned"

Just a general question : firefox on windows I used to have lastpass as password manager. as they are moving out nice features from the free version to the payed version I switched to lockwise. But it does not maintain automatically your password. What password manager are you using ? does it have the maintain feature of updated password ? Thanks for all recommendations Best regards, Guy

Hi Mozilla,

I, unfortunately, have the same problem as others regarding Firefox not blocking ads even though adblocker has been installed.

I have always had the adblocker icon in the tool bar, and for each web visit, I could see how many ads being blocked. This icon has disappeard. Your soluction is to go to customize, but there are only icons for your settings (eg plugins) not the actual adblocker plugin icon. So therefore not possible to move the adblocker icon to the toolbar, as it is not showing in your customize options. I have now run a Microsoft malware/adware full scan - this did not help. I have also re-installed Firefox, and re installed several adblocker plugins. The page videnskab.dk suddenly runs ads when I access with firefox. I have just tried with Edge and no ads. So this must be an firefox browser issue. Would be great to get my icon back AND also to get the adblocker back in action. Looking forward to solution, tks, all the Best Christianne Nielsen

The strict protection mode in Firefox has been really great for me so far. My understanding is that it creates a separate "cookie jar" for each website. Knowing this, I was wondering if Facebook container is still needed to stop Facebook tracking. I never visit the Facebook website and I don't have a Facebook account. I also use Ublock and Privacy badger, if that makes a difference.

Due to a news story about Google working on a top secret Chinese Military project a few years ago, I have blocked any and all connections and services to Google. I have noticed that FireFox browser shows (very briefly) webpage sites being accessed from within websites that I do visit. I noticed a number of Google Services flashing through the list of site connections. Is FireFox BYPASSING my Firewall settings and allowing Google connections? And If so, are there browsers that do NOT use chromium-based code, that honor my firewall settings? Should I just write my own browser code so I can validate that Google is NOT violating my privacy and committing espionage for the Chinese Military?
