I found in 87.0 and now 88.0 that even after uninstalling and installing a new version, there is after clicking Menu/Options a message on top of the window:

" ! Your browser is controlled by your organisation" This is not true, there is no organisation on this PC. After clicking the link here is a new window saying there is a application active that is called "Disable App Update". After clicking "documentation" on the left side there opens a list of applications to modify the operation of Firefox. When clicking the Disable App Udate there opens a application text with on top GitHub and activities from M.Kaply Show/ Home Button Policy Strange that it says Disable Firefox Updates. Is this application installed by you? Are you perhaps 'the organisation'? Please let me know if this is safe or not.

Another user asked the same question May 2020 and nothing has changed. It is quite annoying to have Lockwise automatically name an entry often identical to the website address and sometimes just with the IP (e.g. http://10.0.0.1), and then to have no ability to change the name of the login :(

I sometimes have to go to the URL just to figure out what the URL link is. It needs to be allow the name to be changed to be able to make this more intuitive.

Can you please add this capability?

Hi,

So I have a kind of unusual problem. I am currently logged into my Firefox account (obviously) and have access to all my saved material/history. The problem is I do not know my current password (the ones saved in the password manager are old/not correct) and I can't reset it without losing all my info. This is mostly a problem because I want to activate Firefox sync on another computer. Does anyone know how I can find out my current password without resetting everything?

Thanks!

Can you give me back my "Stuff" as it's all gone now after a change in my gmail because it wanted 3 days to confirm my request for a new password? I made a new account. After a support request to Moto G (when I could no longer download my moto g pictures), my personal files (i.e. recipes, research on US Covid 19 vaccines, and notes on anything from a Spanish learning program to family info, etc) was taken. Their tech support in the US, Ryan, helped me and it vanished and he says he can't reset it. Even though he had access through my cell and laptop.

It's a great hack. Can you help me? Cheri

"They" did leave me my creation "Family slide show" but not the historic one made for the elders.

Every time I close out Firefox and then restart it, the browser address bar has an orange stripe with a robot icon that says my browser is in remote control mode. I have to go into the about:config panel and search for the "Marionette" options. If I toggle the two settings that are true/false and restart, the remote control goes away. I did not install this feature, I have no idea how to use it, I don't need it, and I'm tired of having to do this every time I open Firefox. It's ridiculously annoying to the point that I'm ready to start using another browser. The internet has NO practical help on how to fix this for anyone who is not an expert in computer code. I need a permanent fix for this pesky and annoying bug.

Hi Firefox guys, I've recently created a windows domain (2019 servers only, clients and dc) and deployed firefox 87 On all computers.. Now I need to make sure firefox uses the best practice ciphers only.

    • Is there a way of customizing such security setting, across the network? maybe using GPO**?

(I am having a hard time trying to find relevant info, no luck yet)

Thanks in advance :)

Hi,

I was trying to use firefox primary password without knowing what it does :(. Well by the time i set the primary password in firefox i realise that it replaced all the saved login passwords of over 600 URLS with primary password.

I checked few articles where they have spoken about replacing logins-backup.json and key4.db file. In my case though i think this will not help because i had my syncing on, when i did primary password setting change. is there any method with which i can restore my previous passwords by creating new profile may be.

Just desperately need way with which i can restore the passwords else this will be really difficult for my work

Thanks Prasad

I have all the correct privacy settings. To save the sites cookies, history, etc. I have NOT checked on the site's website to use 2 step verification. Yet EVERYDAY I am asked to do so, even a few times a day if a few hours have passed. Why? I don't know what else to do since I have contacted the website and they have told me to set my browser as it IS ALREADY SET.

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.
