Hello, I would like to point out that the window or the password for accessing the mozilla firefox browser can be circumvented simply by selecting the "Cancel" button or by clicking on the red cross.

In other words it is useless, whereas before it worked perfectly.

Hope you fix this problem soon.

Best Regards

I would like to temporarily disable the password manager before the computer goes to sleep or I leave it on in an active state and walk away from it for a short time. I do not want to exit FF but would like to keep all tabs open. As of now, if the computer sleeps, and upon awaking, I try access a password protected website FF will fill in the password and will not require a Password Manager Primary password. I would like FF to require the Primary password up awaking from the sleep state, and also be able turn off the password manager while the computer is in an active state.

The Markup published an article yesterday revealing how some of the biggest tax preparation websites out there are passing confidential information back to Meta/Facebook.

It appears that this is something that the Facebook Container plugin would block, but I wanted to double-check and make sure.

Since last Friday I haven't been able to access any of my bank accounts with US Bank. I can access these accounts through my US Bank phone app and through Chrome when I use it on my laptop as browser. When I called US Bank IT they could not help because the phone app and Chrome worked. What's happening with Firefox? I have used it for years to get to these accounts, and now I am unable to.

I'm trying to sign into/sync Firefox on a new phone. It keeps saying I need to get code from authenticator app. I don't have one! I try to scan IR code from computer, but it still requires a code. Sometimes it says it is sending a code to my email address. It does not. I ask it to resend code but it never does. I am logged into Firefox on my computer, is there a way to turn off the authenticator or otherwise solve this problem?
