Sorry as I Don't know how to Write the Problem. But Still Trying for it and save the World with Big Problem of Firefox Password manager.

I wanted to state that firefox Password Manager is still not secured on windows PC,

My Clarification.

When you Open the Firefox and Press the Application Menu, Passwords. It Open all the Passwords.

Ii I wanted to Steal any Passwords of my Known Person, it's very easy on PC. If any User Keep his Account Sync Open with Mozilla Server, I just Sit on My known Person user PC. Open the Firefox and Press the Application Menu, Passwords. and All Password i can See and Copy

Here is what i Think Mozilla Team to Have - Password Manger Opening Key or can see Secret Password / Other encryption & Decryption Method which only the Actual User will see All saved Passwords by Password / Other encryption & Decryption Method.

Deleted secondary email cannot be reused for a new account; Mozilla still remembers

Hi, here is my situation.

1. I made a firefox account with a (primary) email, e.g. email1@example.com. 2. I followed the instructions here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-primary-email-address-firefox-accounts to change my primary email. So now I have - primary: email2@example.com, secondary: email1@example.com 3. I delete my secondary email (email1@example.com)

I want to make a new firefox account with email1@example.com. But when I enter it https://accounts.firefox.com/ firefox wants me to log on. (And if I put in the password to the account it was originally tied to, it says to log in with the primary email.)

The behaviour I expect, especially for firefox which advertises itself on (among other things) privacy, is that if I "delete" something from my account, it is actually gone. But clearly, firefox is still keeping track of email1@example.com

There are other users who tried this in the past but not given a solution: - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1393844 - says to disable sync. I signed out of all devices - did not change anything. - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1356551 - no responses - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344201 - says to delete firefox profile. email1@example.com still being remembered by firefox (not that I really expected deleting a local profile to affect firefox's servers). - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1365073 - suggests deleting the firefox account completely. However, as the original poster of that question mentions, that would risk locking out both email1@example.com and email2@example.com , at least unless a firefox developer confirms that it would actually delete the data. - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1329144 - mentions that from a GitHub discussion, "a primary email that has been replaced with a new email is Not released for re-use"

I could not find that GitHub discussion mentioned, but assuming it is true, I'm wondering if there's a way/where I can make a request to the corresponding developers to implement truly deleting user data (when requested by the user)?

Thank you!

Hi, I’ve been using Firefox as my default browser for some time now. And lately I’ve been noticing a style tag added in each and all randomly visited URL. This style tag contains loads of links, mostly ad references, and seems JavaScript based, as shown in attachment. I don’t have extensions anywhere and I ran defender, some malaware software and antivirus but there was nothing to report. I’m intrigued and trying to find out from where is coming from and how the style tag gets attached inside the body of the HTML page automatically and randomly to any visited URL. This happens with all mainstream browsers. I mean … what the hack?

Beim Login der E-Mail Konten von Telekom und GMX wurden bisher nur der Benutzernamen vorbelegt. Jetzt wird auch das Passwort vorbelegt. Dies ist aber aus SIcherheitsgründen nicht sinnvoll. Wie kann ich dies wieder rückgängig machen, so dass wie davor die Eingabe eines Passwortes immer erforderlich ist? Über das Anwendungsmenü Funktion Passwörter geht es jedenfalls nicht. Hier kann im Feld Passwort der Inhalt nicht entfernt werden sondern nur die kompletten Zugangsdaten. Bitte um Hinweis. Vielen Dank!

In the past, when you opened up private browsing, it seamlessly integrated itself into your browser, being indistinguishable. At a glance, no one would know you were private browsing; it blended in.

In a recent update, Mozilla did something unthinkable and made private browsing an isolated instance from Firefox. This, of course, results in a purple flare in the taskbar in front of the entire world that you are private browsing.

I don't understand who thought this was a good idea. I want to know how to undo this horrible change.

See the screenshot where you can't see any information on all my open Firefox windows, except for my private browsing window.

Private window icons in Win 10 doesn't work as expected with Profiles

I have shortcuts to launch Firefox in two ways, one with no commands and one with the following command: -P "Personal" --no-remote This used to show two separate Firefox icons on the taskbar. Firefox windows opened in each profile would be grouped with the same profile and kept separate from other profiles. With the latest update I still have two icons, the Default profile has a Firefox icon and the 'Personal' profile has a private browsing icon. Even though there are no private windows open. According to latest updates, if I open private windows then they should be grouped with their own icon. However, whether I have Default or Personal profile windows open, Private windows are grouped with their standard browsing windows.

This is on Win 10, Firefox 107.0.1

Any ideas how to fix this? Ideally I would have the standard Firefox icon on both profiles then, to conform with the private window separation update, my private windows would be separated from the standard windows but also from different profiles.

Hi Firefoxers, I am wanting to test an email before I send it out to clients, the email has a link to a video in the heading of the page. When I click the link in the email it opens the webpage, but the link defaults to "preview not available" the rest of the page is viewable, but not the image of the video. At first I thought it was a broken link but when I send a test to colleagues using IE it opens automatically and they have the option play the video.

I made the following changes in Preferences > Privacy & Security > Autoplay > Settings > Allow Audio & Video

I refreshed the page, didn't work Restarted Firefox, still didn't work

Can I get some advice on the correct settings or where I am going wrong.

I am using Firefox 107.0.1 on a Windows 10 machine. And, I am not able to login to the SSA website (US) using Firefox. I reviewed the answers in the post (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354403) and tried several of the possible solutions (safe mode, rename/delete profile, reboot computer, etc) without any luck. I've attached a screenshot of the error when trying to login using Firefox.

Strangely, I've used Firefox exclusively to login (latest, maybe 6 months ago) before with no problem. It appears it is only when I currently am using Firefox. This is because I am able to use MS Edge without a problem.

Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you, Chris

I access multiple sites under a single domain:

https://my.domain/site1 https://my.domain/site2

Each site has a login, and the same account name (e.g. 'me') is used for each site, but with different passwords. I must use the same account name for each site.

As far as I can tell, the password manager will always truncate the full site url to just the domain name when saving the passwords, so both sites are saved to the same entry.

The password entry edit function does not allow one to edit the URL associated with the site.

Is there a workaround for this? Thanks, Diab

Hi,

as an admin I administer O365 web-sites/consoles in Firefox. I have two accounts in Firefox: my normal account, and my admin account which has far greater rights. The problem I am having is since I have enabled the option "Allow Windows single sign-on for Microsoft, work, and school accounts" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/windows-sso?as=u&utm_source=inproduct), I always have to confirm two times that I want my admin account to login to for example: https://admin.exchange.microsoft.com/#/ Is there a way to tell FF that I want only the admin account to logon to the specified link so I don't have to select the account every time?

Thanks

I have FF setup to forget all data after being closed except for a couple of websites. No Google properites are included in the list.

After logging FF has also been logged in to all Google properties; google.com, gmail, etc. If I close the browser and reload it all cookies should be dumped but, if I visit google.com somehow I'm logged back in.

"Settings > Privacy & Security > Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" should mean I'm reset to a somewher zero state, yes?
