Trying to debug. Firefox breaks my site, and if I change the Tracking Protection to Strict, my site doesn't work at all. So it must be in this no tracking area.

But I cannot enter exceptions in the tracking window, that window is not live. See attached. Why I cannot enter/type site URLs in this window?

Hello, We run a website that uses a bookmarklet button which allows us to capture the current URL location and save it. This is placed on the Tool Bar where its easy for a user to use. Until now, its been working perfectly but with this latest update to FireFox we are seeing the pop-up blocking being activated with the yellow message bar at the top. Now this would be ok if we only had to allow the pop up once (by clicking allow site), but unfortunately the bookmarket button has to be able to work on all sites, which is the whole point of the button. So its impractical to keep allowing it every time its used. Disabling the pop-up blocker completely then works, but then the browser is open to other pop-ups. Is there any way to allow bookmarklets to display a pop up and not display a pop-up message? Without having to disable the entire pop-up functionality. Can the FF developers allow for user placed bookmarklets to not be pop-up blocked. Maybe an exception added for that. They are placed manually by the user so are allowed by the user only.

Thanks for reading. Paul.

I can't find any malware or add-ons that could could be causing this.

If you could help me find and fix the issue that would be appreciated.

After dragging firefox icon to dock on mac, unlike safari, it asks for user id and password each time I want to use it, sending notification by e-mail about the log in. Is this necessary as safari doesn't need this, and if so, is it easier just to use safari as default browser instead of firefox? Or can this be changed in settings without harming my security, as I'm using it on my mac from home. Some things work better with Firefox, but it I have to login and enter a password each time to use it, then it makes it cumbersome to use Firefox as a default browser. Thank you, First time user of Firefox on Mac.

Hi,

I'm a bit old and really need someone nearby to come show me how to navigate into your securities and other benefits, someone who really knows all this. Is that possible? I get confused by the complexities of everything you offer.

For example, I read something about Ad blocker which said it wants access to all my inforamation- does that mean they want all my bank numbers for trading stocks? That would seem ridiculous, no?

It would also be time to make a small donation to assist your existence. How?

Thank you, Doug Calder [phone number] and you have the rest.

Just curious as to why you have Google as your default search engine. Google, from my understanding, is not the most friendly entity for users because they are just like many social media sites that invade users privacy for nefarious purposes. I have refrained from using Google and have went with Bing. Don't particularly care for any of the main stream search engines. Is there any specific reason why Google is used and not some other search engine that isn't interested in violating your privacy?

This is on fIrefox version 85 in Linux.

Last week I was discouraged to find out that my cache was taking up 2 GB of space, some YEARS old. So I decided to purge it and then keep it clean.

The cache gets stored in two places: the linux home .cache folder AND the firefox profile's cache2 folder.

To keep things REALLY clean I checked the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" checkbox, then manually enter the exceptions for web sites I do not want to block. Then I specifically added sites I really despise (google, for example) to the block list.

The data still gets cached, even after closing and reopening the browser the cache is still there (verified both via about:cache and by just looking in the folders).

Even when I purge the cache completely, verify nothing is there (about:cache) after deleting the cache folders from the hard drive, it keeps coming back, like a bad computer virus.

My interim solution is a crontab that runs every hour to clear old cache, but that seems silly. Do these security settings actually do anything? What am I doing wrong?

Problem is that there is no Disconnect, only Download button.

Hello,

I am quite frustrated. I have been working on solving two issues for a very long time. My brain is a little disabled but I still have to solve all problems myself. Please help me if you can.  The issues are:

1. with settings on password remembrance. I get logged out of many websites that claim that everything is right with their set up. On some websites I am not getting logged out.

 The settings I have tried in Firefox (latest version both on Windows 10 and on Android 9) has been "never clear cookies" , "clear cookies after each session" with exceptions for all the current websites.  I have allowed everything.  If this issue derives from the websites setup they would have had many more complains than mine. That´s why I have to turn to Mozilla. 

2. I run Firefox on windows 10 and on Android. Isn´t the browser meant to sync on website content like the above mentioned ? Logins and other data left on each websites from previous login ?

If I get help from the forum I will definitely donate to Mozilla. /Gechen
