I use Simplify.com to track some financial data but I cannot log in from the Firefox browser. I can get to the login screen but when I click login there is a spinning circle which never stops. I think I have found ways to put this in the exceptions but nothing works. I have a similar issue with Zinio.com. I can get to the website but cannot login. For both of these sites I have to use Google Chrome to get in.

I've been slowly migrating away from Chrome to Firefox on advice from friends. All of my bookmarks from Chrome were able to be imported, but not logins and websites. I have followed all of the steps regarding privacy settings and importing such info, including making sure Chrome is closed before importing, but to no avail. In addition, when I try to manually save logins/passwords in Firefox, the dialogue box asking if I want to save this information appears and I select yes. However, when I check my saved logins/passwords, there are zero.

All of my permissions are set to allow Firefox to remember this information, yet it still doesn't after multiple attempts on my part and multiple messages from FF saying that it has successfully saved said info.

In addition, when trying to import logins/passwords from Chrome, the dialogue box says it was successful, but another yellow dialogue box appears telling me to login with my Primary Password, yet does nothing when I click on it except take me to the Logins and Passwords page.

Is there a step I'm missing in all of this that would make the browser tell me all of this is working when in fact it isn't?

Hello, I am having an problem with my VPN. It was there and now it's not (I'm sure it must be my fault). I have signed out and reset multiple times to no avail. In settings it indicates it is on, however it does not give me the option to turn it off or on. In addition the icon on the Firefox browser also indicates it's on but the does not change color as before. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank You For Your Time.

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"

Hello,

I like Firefox unfortunately all browsers are so 1999... It is impossible to use without addons, if you browser internet a lot and have opened a lot of tabs and windows. I bumped into this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1155401 Saying: this will open another instance of Firefox. But nothing is bulletproof! So ask, if this will isolate me from addons, which I would open in first instance of Firefox.

Thanks for help.

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?

Firefox Blocking Allowed Pop-Ups After Update

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.

Firefox keeps redirecting http to https, and I need to tell it not to for a specific site

I have an ssh tunnel that I am using to access an AWS ElasticSearch instance running in AWS, so that I can see Kibana in my browser. The tunnel is necessary because access is only allowed through a specific jump/gateway host that we have setup (this is very standard).

I used to be able to access this just fine with http://localhost:9200/_plugin/kibana But then ElasticSearch updated something to require that the 'HOST' header contain the original host, ie: search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com

Ok, no matter, I'll just add an entry to my hosts file: 127.0.0.1 search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com

Now, I can curl just fine, and using Chrome works just fine too: http://search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com:9200/_plugin/kibana

But every time I try to use Firefox, it replaces the http with https, which obviously doesn't work because the tunnel is to port 80.


Yes, I realize that *.amazonaws.com is owned by Amazon and they have an SSL cert.

I have read a similar ticket, here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1209387 The acceptable answer in that ticket seemed to be to use a different domain for local development, which shouldn't be too hard to do, but in my case this is not a usable answer.

I should be able to override Firefox and tell it not to change a URL that I have put into it, at least for specific sites.

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

Pop-up window not showing on website

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).

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?
