Dear Community I used to use profile "network.cookie.lifetimePolicy", 2 To remove all cookies when I close firefox. But seems it's not working anymore for firefox 115 So I try to do the same thing but using privacy.clearOnShutdown.cookies The problem here is all settings releated to clearOnShutdown are false and locked by default I tried to update them to true in user.js and mozilla.cfg but them remain false in about:conifg and cookies were not removed when shut firefox

firefox.exe heeft geprobeerd om op basis van een niet-overeenstemmend certificaat een verbinding te maken met browser.pipe.aria.microsoft.com.

""It says something like firefox.exe has tried to make a connection based on a not approved certificate with browser.pipe.aria.microsoft.com. We have blocked the connection to keep your data safe. I can add this to exclusions"" or something like that.

I have never seen something like this before and I would like to know what it means and if I should exclude this, etc. So that's why I send you a mail to check it. Like to hear from you and many thanks in advance. Greetz Karin

I have unsubscribed from all newsletter after receiving the first email but days later I'm still getting emails from Firefox (e.g. Superpower #4: See if your info has been leaked).

This is an incredibly bad user experience and to my knowledge illegal in the EU.

I'm probably still within that journey but the journey should terminate the moment I clicked unsubscribed.

On a number of occasions over the years, I have been unable to log in to Thingspeak from my lap-top. Usually the problem goes away. This is stated as a problem with their security certificate. However, my tablet, also running Firefox (119.0.1) has no problem accessing my account. What is really the problem? I am running Windows 7 on my ancient lap-top (yes, I know it is way outdated, but I'm attached to it and rely on the security software I'm paying for) The tablet is running Android 8.1.0 and is my last resort for internet. Would really like to fix this.

Unsynced Devices Belonging To Other Household Members Opening Tabs On My Computer

Hi, I have been wanting to switch to Firefox for a while now and I have imported all of my data from Chrome onto Firefox. All the other members of my household use Firefox on their Mac laptops and iPhones. I have only ever signed into my own account on Firefox, and in the same way I have only ever signed into my own account on Mozilla VPN, which I have used for over a year while living elsewhere and have never had a problem with this. I also have only my own Google account in the data imported from Chrome. I have no one else's information for any account on anything in my device nor, to my knowledge, do they have any account information of mine on theirs. However, sometime in the 10 or so months since I imported my Chrome data - around the same time I moved into a house with others who use Firefox - my laptop's Firefox seems to have...connected somehow, in a way atypical with normal syncing, with the other devices in my house. Occasionally, when I open Firefox on my computer, whatever tab another household member has open on their computer will open instead of a homepage. Also, a little icon pops up occasionally to tell me Firefox is "open on iPhone" when another household member is using Firefox on their iPhone. I use an Android which does not have Firefox installed, so it's not a glitch syncing with my own device. I do not know how this happened and I do not know how to stop it. There doesn't seem to be any evidence of this connection in any place I can see in the preferences window, nor can I find any way to permanently unsync my device's Firefox application from anything unless I sync something first. Any ideas? I'm not that terrible with computers lol, I swear!

Hi all.

I use Firefox 120.0.1 with the setting "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" to clear said data when closing Firefox. I have also set an exception for a few websites, so they should save cookies and data. However, this does not work as intended. After closing and reopening Firefox, both cookies and data are gone from these websites. I have looked for a solution in older forum entries, and it was recommended to adjust the history settings. It seems that checking the box at "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" automatically sets the history settings to what can be seen in the attached screenshot. Altering these automatic settings unchecks the box above. Is this issue related to the website or is there a way to solve it?

I just want to stop a piece of my own history from being shown on "Firefox Suggestion", which was made with a firefox browser on my previous device and is relatively private.(I know I can do this by modifying "Search Suggestions->Show search suggestions ahead of browsing history in address bar results", but I would like to preserve the function itself). That device is permanently unapproachable, and so is that browser. I tried "Clear recent history -> Everything", but it didn't work as expected and that is still shown. I think clear all my history(not only those made on this currently used device) may help, how can I do it?

Hi I have been using firefox on linux for a while without updating it. We are artsellers and I used to be able to log in and out of an artplatform without any problems. It's now been a few weeks since logging out is not possible any more on this platform which means that I am constantly logged in which I really do not want. The menu does not work anymore on this side whereas it works with other browers. I already contacted the platform. They cannot do anything about it themselves and asked me to contact your team. Please help. Thank you Best regards from Germany C. Marsac

I am trying to block out the new little "stick marks" that post while I try to log on to a site that that I need to "google" and log on to. I tried to sign out of all the "outside sites" that want to log on, but there are sites that I need to log on to and have done this in the past. I usually go to these sites because they are important to my transacting business, accessing my bank, places I pay my bills, etc. If I want to get to these and order or pay a bill, I have to unblock each one of them??? How do I do that? If a credit company wants to contact me, they cannot do this even if we have contacted each other previously? Really?

How do I undo this already-marked system and get out of it? As you can guess, I am old and not up with the times. Please simplify your answers so a not-technical person can understand it.

I seem to be unable to suddenly access Bing.com for some reason. I'm getting a Secure Connection Failed error. I thought it was a simple downtime but it isn't. I'm also not seeing a security certificate. Check down detectors and its just me. So what gives? It was fine yesterday. I pretty much checked everything. no proxy's or anything.

This is driving me crazy and also interrupting my work.
