I use a web app for learning guitar at https://www.fender.com/play It used the microphone to grade your playing Using Firefox 107.0 (64 bit) under Linux Mint - after a recent upgrade the mic stopped working at this site Fender play says, " Microphone access | We require microphone access to give feedback on your playing | Please click "Allow" or "Share"above to provide it for us."

But 'old' dialog box requesting permission never shows up. Address bar shows 'mic icon', but clicking on it does nothing

If I google "mic test" the mic seems to work fine at a "testing" site

I think Fender actually uses MatchMySound1.com to analyze -- Has some setting permission possibly changed? Works in Firefox 102.5esr using Debian

BTW: = Settings | Privacy & Security | microphone [settings] doesn't seem useful

Thanks in advance

I have set firefox to clear the cache on shutdown. It does not work. Every night I shutdown and reopen in order to clear the cache manually. It does not work. I was always left with 38kb. Now it's 63kb. What can I do other than dump firefox and find an alternative browser?

Hi, I planned to block my users from installing extensions/add-ons. I found an article that might be the answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1308646). I tried to create a simple policy (below), but somehow it does not work (I can still install any add-on/extension). What is wrong with my script? I'm using Firefox ESR 78.11.0 (64-bit) by the way.

My "policies.json" looks like this:

{

"policies": {
  "ExtensionSettings": {
    "*": {
      "blocked_install_message": "Blocked!",
      "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/"],
      "installation_mode": "blocked"
    }
  }
}

Why i am suddenly getting Google log-in requests when I first open some websites in my Firefox browser on Mac OS Monterey? This was not happening before; it has started in the past couple of weeks and is extremely annoying. I do everything possible to stop providing Google with any information about me. One of the ways I thought I was doing that was by using the Firefox browser. But apparently not, since Google is able to infiltrate the browser and ask for a sign-in. It is not possible that Google is doing this without Firefox/Mozilla awareness of it.

I've reviewed the notes in this post however it has not helped. For some reason the "Autofill credit cards" section does not display in my settings and autofill for CC does not work. I have the following config:

extensions.formautofill.creditCards.supported = on extensions.formautofill.creditCards.available = true extensions.formautofill.creditCards.enabled = true extensions.formautofill.creditCards.hideui = false extensions.formautofill.creditCards.supportedCountries = US,CA,GB,FR,DE

What else can I try? I am located in Canada, and am using FF version 107 on Windows 11

Thank you

Gets lost (half of them to say the least) every time Firefox updates. I checked the box that ask for saving the logins and password in the Privacy and Security section and this feature has always been active. I must have saved logins for 36 websites and email providers. Very vicious cycle and you know how frustrating this can be. Well you can help by either fixing this bug or do away the feature all together. Because next time this happens AGAIN I'll revert back to good 'ol Google chrome and never get back to using Firefox ever.

I am connected on my firefox account on both my computers but I am unable to connect the same account on firefox mobile. This is because I don't have access to the two-step authentication app that I do not remember even setting up. I have access to my email associated with the account and I have 10 digit recovery codes but none of them worked to recover my account.

So I am not locked out but I am unable to connect on new devices because I have no idea what app I used to set up 2 step authentication.

Hi,

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox and I really prefer Firefox to be honest. One key thing that is missing for me is the ability to store credit card information which Chrome does. I saw that in the help that this feature is only supported in Canada, France, Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. I live in Israel. It is annoying to enter the full information each time (except CVV). Any plans to roll this out to the rest of the wold? This missing and very convenient feature might force me to go back to Chrome, which I would prefer not to do.

Thanks, Daniel

I recently updated to 107.0 (64-bit) by the usual Linux update. On Nov 26 2022 I used Google Translate. I just discovered these directories: 2022-11-26 22:07:20 /media/sf_G_DRIVE/f_files 2022-11-26 21:30:46 /media/sf_G_DRIVE/g_files The files in them are all rwxrwx--- I looked at the images and recognized the sources as being from the Russian Federation archive that I visited at those times via automatic Russian-English translation by Google Translate.

Does anyone have an explanation how these directories and files were created?

Hello,

I cannot save my credit card number in Firefox, in Settings I don't even have the option to save them and the directions in the Firefox help don't work. #2 below there is no Forms and Autofill section in the settings let alone a credit card option.

  1. Click the menu button Button and select Settings.
  2. Click the Privacy & Security panel and scroll down to the Forms and Autofill section.
  3. Click the checkbox next to Autofill credit cards to turn it on, or uncheck the box to turn it off.

Any help to what's going on would be great.

Dear community,

User in our engineering dept would like to use Fiefox Developer Edition to develop custom applications. As an IT I need to check application regarding security and support levels. I already check your support options – community and commercial so I would like to send you some questions regarding data protection. Please enter yes or no.

1 The application must not automatically transfer any company proprietary data to external networks (like the Internet): 2 The application should not open listener ports on the client: 3 The application must work with the existing security settings, e.g. no changes in GPO-setting or Edge/Chrome-settings (e.g. they must work without changing ActiveX settings): 4 The application must not reduce the security level of the computer system (e.g. the application must not exchange DLL-s or other files with lower and unpatched versions): 5 The application must work without admin privileges:

I am trying to add a second security key (Yubikey 5) to my 2FA accounts on Yahoo and Google. The first key was added a year ago. No problems. Now I try to add the second key I get a message from Firefox saying to continue or cancel, but only find a cancel button. If I press Cancel, operation fails. If I press Continue or Cancel in the website dialog (outside of Firefox message box) it also fails. I attach screen shot. The error is similar for both Yahoo and Google, but slightly different. I show the Google one.

Is there anyway to make a Hotkey for our Autoplay function, instead of having to go into Settings, each time we need the function?

In my experience, I have it set to Block both Video and Sound, but this blocks simple pronunciations, in Search or Translations. I hope there some way, a command, a mod or a setting allowing a Hotkey or Icon for Fast Disable/Enable.

Thanks for all your work and making the internet safer for everyone.
