I was gifted an Amazon Fire Tablet to use for an upcoming hospital/rehab stay. I use Firefox on my desktop and Android phone and want to use it on my tablet, but the Amazon store doesn't have the app. Not sure I trust the Amazon Silk browser, but I may have no choice. I am not a tech savvy person! I don't know the difference between a bit, byte, or buttercup. If there is a way to install and use Firefox on my tablet, and sync with other devices, I would like to do so. Please explain how to do it as though you are talking to a 6 year old (who probably knows more about this stuff than I do, anyway). Thanks. rennylloyd

I'm running Firefox 84.0.2 and Dashlane 6.2051.2. Each time I exit and launch Firefox I must re-enter my Dashlane Master Password. Checking the box to "Keep Me Logged In for 14 Days" is not working. I have the same problem with both the new Web based Dashlane extension and the older Desktop Windows based extension. I do not have this problem with Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer. Not sure if this is a Dashlane or Firefox problem....

As captured in the long thread "What's the difference between ALLOW and ALLOW for a SESSION?”, with a lot of handholding from jscher2000, I managed to set custom choices for privacy and security the way I wanted on my mac computer (blocking all cookies in all windows, with exceptions saved for ALLOW, ALLOW for SESSION and some for BLOCK). To accomplish this, required enabling deletion of cookies when Firefox closes.

My assumption based on information I got in the above mentioned thread, was that even when deletion of cookies is checked for when Firefox is closed, cookies for websites identified as exceptions with ALLOWED, are not deleted.

However, this is not what happens. A specific example is tripcheck.com, which stores custom itineraries for cameras in cookies. I setup quite a few of these custom itineraries and saved them and they were OK until I closed Firefox, when they were deleted, as the cookie was deleted. This website is setup as ALLOW in the Exceptions list.

As explained in the above mentioned thread:

"(2) Scenario Two

[X] Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed (checked)

Firefox shortens cookie expiration to session only unless the site has an ALLOW permission in the exceptions list. “.

I am more confused than ever, the settings do not appear to be working the way they are meant to work, not only for session cookies but also for what should be "permanent".

Am I doing something incorrectly or am I misunderstanding how setting should work?

If cookies of websites setup for ALLOW are deleted when Firefox is closed, the setting is defeating what I am trying to accomplish: saving cookies for websites that I use and save data in cookies (such as recognizing the computer, what’s needed for 2 step authentication, etc.).

Thanks.

I checked for the malwares the PC with several antivirus software. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it without saving data from the previous versions, with no success. I tried all methods offered by the Firefox Help, but does not work. Please, help me to fix the problem. I am attaching screenshots to illustrate the problem.

Today, Google Calendar is not opening. I keep Google as a pinned tab set to automatically open when I start Firefox, so always available. But today it did not open. No error message, just a blank screen and the blue line moving across the top of the window. The same thing is happening when Zoom webinar registration attempts to save a calendar item to my Google calendar. No error message, just a white screen and blue line moving across the top. I am able to open Google Calendar in Chrome and also can open it in Firefox by opening a new tab and then repinning it. But if I close the browser window and the re-open it (something i have to do every day or two to keep GMail from bogging down - that is another question!) then the saved pinned tab will not reopen again and I have to go through the manual reopening process again. Any clues? Thanks!

Coincidentally, it would not load on Firefox on our main PC either. I have cleared history, cookies, etc and tried changing security settings, but it will still not work. It works fine on Edge and my Android phone. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I recently migrated all of my files and applications from a 2013 macbook retina pro that had FF 56.0.2 to a 2020 macbook retina pro. The application transferred over with no problems with one exception. I have a blog on livejournal.com and now cannot post or reply to comments on the blog. FF just hangs and freezes. I can't even quit the page unless I quit FF totally and then restart. I can still access livejournal from Safari w/no problems. I checked my extensions (only have two) and disabled hardware acceleration but nothing has helped. Does anyone have any suggestion? I'm not crazy about safari and would like to continue to use FF. Thanks so much for any help!

No other Google products (Gmail, Google Drive) show this problem, and the calendar loads normally in Chrome. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello All,

I was working on a Google Apps Script to convert a Google Form entry into a Google Calendar event. Nothing too crazy so I'm not sure that the JavaScript I'm using would do anything to the browser. I could access Google Calendar just fine this morning and then all of the sudden, my calendar page wouldn't completely load. It loads the upper and left panels but not the actual calendar. There's no error message popups, the loading status just keeps spinning.

I've cleared all cache, closed/reopened the browser, restarted my computer, refreshed Firefox, opened Firefox in Safe Mode, tried a Private Window, uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I can access Google Calendar just fine on Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome.

Web Console shows a lot of warnings and an Exception error but I don't see anything that gives me a clear understanding of what the problem is. Halp!!!1!1
