Clear all data when logging out? Keep data on account and not on computer? "Nuke it" button?

I'm gettin' worried about some privacy issues and I'm not sure if the behaviour I want in a browser exists on Firefox.

Right now I'm using Firefox, it remembers my session and the sites I'm logged in, doesn't remember history. I have my Firefox account connected, my bookmark toolbar open, and I use BitWarden to store my passwords.

When I sign-out of Firefox, it doesn't delete the bookmarks.

I actually stopped using the sync function because I thought it was secure to open my account on my phone, but when I log out of my account, all the bookmarks remain there, which kinda defeats the purpose.

Is there a way to have a sort of "nuke it" button?

I want to be able to store ALL my data (session, bookmarks, logins) behind ONE password, and have them disappear when I log out.

I'm just a regular user but I think it's weird that Firefox doesn't do this. It's as if my e-mails remained visible when I log out of my Outlook account.

For 3 days now, I have not been able to view or use anything in my Facebook account. The page would drop the internet because it was too slow. I have tried various things from support and also received 1 from the community. it has not worked so I am going to switch to Microsoft Edge because I did not experience this problem with ME. I have used Firefox for years but the slowness is very annoying. I will try it again in the future. Thank you

"Sorry, we're having trouble playing this video." Video and GIFs on Facebook

I know this is an old issue. I'm getting it now, FF 90.0.2 64-bit, Windows 10 Pro N, Build 19041.vb_release.191206-1406. System updated. Not very often it starts playing for a fraction of a second. Videos and GIFs everywhere else (as far as places I normally go) plays as it should. Troubleshoot mode didn't solve it; hardware acceleration tweak neither. No crash logs.

Tried on the Edge and everything is fine.

Question: does the suggested "fix" on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows embraces this issue as well? If so, sorry, but might be time to change browsers. The reason I'm using Windows 10 PRO ->N<- is exactly not to have to remove Windows Media Player and related "bloat" from my system. This isn't one of those crybaby threats I hate to read: it's a necessity.

I must ask: why on Edge, on the same machine, the same problem doesn't exist as in Firefox.

Suggestion for mentioned article: might be helpful point users (also) to the right place of The Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 10, on https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231

Thanks

I need to reorder Firefox windows on the taskbar badly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also it would be useful to have custom titles. Both things should persists after PC restart. I tried couple programs, but they don't work. Devs said: position of Firefox window on the taskbar is store in Firefox and their program has no way of remembering that! Also windows get randomly shuffled each time, it is impossible to use like this. It takes me forever to find right window. It is annoying the hell out of me. How Firefox dev team doesn't fix something that basic??? This is so stupid...

Please tell me there is some solution...

Hello,

since the recent update to version 90.0 I noticed that certain websites (youtube, facebook, spotify) won't load at all. I just get a blank screen. Additionally on instagram I can't see any images or videos.

At first I tried to open these websites in another browser (MS Edge) and there everything works just fine.

To solve my problem I already tried a lot of different approaches, but nothing has helped so far. Here is a overview of everything I tired so far: - deleted the cache and cookies (per Firefox as well as with CCleaner) - deactivated and later deinstalled all my add-ons - started Firefox in Troubleshooting-Mode - used the feature to clean Firefox - completely deinstalled and reinstalled Firefox - disabled and deleted my anti-virus software - temporarily stopped Windows Defender Firewall - used new profiles with the about:profiles menu - used different programs I already had installed (avira, Windows Defender, spybot S&D) to scan for viruses, trojans or malware. And I also used the ones Mozilla recommends on this site: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware -> nothing was found apart from a few tracking cookies

Now I am at my wit's end and don't know what else I could do get my Firefox to work properly again. I hope someone more knowledgeable than me can help me out to find a solution.

Best regards and thank you for your help Andreas

Hello, when I recently updated I was offered a choice of UI themes, including "System theme" which states: "Follow the operating system setting for buttons, menus, and windows." My question is, will this "System theme" option be removed in a future release?

As a visually-impaired user I use a high contrast theme with custom button sizes etc,in Windows, and so was greatly worried by talk of a new Firefox theme that uses its own UI / colour-scheme which might not meet my needs. So when updating I was delighted to see the above option. I chose it and FF continues to use my needed system colours etc. Phew, I thought, crisis averted.

But I am now panicking again at other things I have since read, about certain UI options gbeing disabled eventually. I am unclear as to whether it is the ability to disable specific elements within the new UI theme for those that use it that is under threat, or whether it is the ability to choose the alternative "System theme" that is under threat? Thanks.

I'm using Windows Defender Firewall in Windows 10, and I have blocked all Inbound and Outbound connections, created a New Rule for Firefox (version 78.11.0_ESR), and allowed the program to access the internet from the installation path: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe". However, internet access is inaccessable? Does Firefox makes some DETOUR route without my knowelage or is it just me and my moderate IQ? All other applications have full respect to Windows Defender Firewall rules. Thank you.

С Edge таких проблем нет, сайт грузится быстро, не грузит систему. Браузер самый свежий, AMD Ryzen 5950x, остальное думаю не важно.
