I HAVE downloaded Firefox, but just seem to have browser. I'm trying to use Firefox only for my search engine, but it's still Google search, although I Disabled Google, & Chrome!! My friend says he only uses Firefox - how?

I also get too many ads cutting me out of what I'm doing, & since then, my phone charges really slowly!!! I was hoping having Firefox would stop the ads.

I'm 77, & use PAYG phone mainly for texts, whatsapp, banking, & online shopping & Facebook. I also take photographs sometimes, but prefer my ipad for that. Mary

Have Firefox blocked this and/or are there ways users can protect themselves?

"14 new types of 'XS-Leak' cross-site leak attacks against modern web browsers, including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, and Mozilla Firefox."

"These types of side-channel attacks are called 'XS-Leaks,' and allow attacks to bypass the 'same-origin' policy in web browsers so that a malicious website can steal info in the background from a trusted website where the user enters information.

"The principle of an XS-Leak is to use such side-channels available on the web to reveal sensitive information about users, such as their data in other web applications, details about their local environment, or internal networks they are connected to," explains the XS-Leaks wiki.

For example, an XS-Leak attack could help a background site siphon the email inbox contents from an active tab used for accessing webmail."

Do advise me on what should i do to improve my firefox speed?

Recently lost all login/password data in firefox. After browsing the support I discovered that I have a corrupt logins.json file, around 270kb in size, and a logins.json file around 10kb in size.

Renaming the corrupt file to logins.json doesn't seem to recover the passwords/logins (even temporarily). Tried rolling firefox back to an older version and that didn't work either.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix the corrupt file?

Thanks.

I did not like installing apps from firefox add-ons but loved installing applications from firefox marketplace when it was there back then. It made me feel productive as it was the app store of an OS ,which was also there back then. But why was it discontinued? If there is any reason, please reply and If possible, please try recreating it. Here are the new firefox marketplace icons I suggest which I got from the web archive. Each icon is larger than the previous one. And if possible, please work on firefox OS too.

Hello,

I have a new Cisco Webex Desk Camera that it's not working with Firefox (Flatpak on Fedora Silverblue 35).

lsusb: Bus 006 Device 004: ID 05a6:0023 Cisco Systems, Inc. Cisco Webex Desk Camera

https://mozilla.github.io/webrtc-landing/gum_test.html shows two cameras "Video Capture 4" and "Video Capture 5", none of them work, the page shows an error message: "AbortError: Starting videoinput failed".

The same website works in Chromium (also a Flatpak), which only sees "Video Capture 4 (05a6:0023)". "OBS Studio" is also able to use the camera. "Video Capture 5" is not available in Chromium and freezes the image in OBS Studio. I believe Video Capture 5 is the IR camera that is used in Windows Hello.

Would you be able to help me to get this camera supported, please?

Every time I try to play a feed or a recording it takes a little bit to load then a message appears saying "Sorry, there was an error licensing the video." I've checked my Youtube TV account and everything checks out, restarted my browser, started browser in safe mode. I tried using Internet Explorer and it worked on that, then it worked on Firefox. I closed the Internet Explorer then the Firefox stopped working. Not sure what's going on.

Since upgrading to FF 94.0.2, I cannot logon to Chase Online Banking. The site texts me a code which I then enter and receive a message that part of the site does not seem to be working. If I use Edge, I can get in without a problem. I went into troubleshooting mode and it let me logon without a problem, but returning to normal mode repeats the problem. Using private mode does not work either. I'm not sure what is going on here and any suggestions would be appreciated.

OK. someone kindly offered me a new-to-me computer and claimed that they had transferred everything to the newish one. Well, what they did was take my umpteen gazillion desktop shortcuts and place them all in "bookmarks menu". EEK.` That's way too many. So I exported them to an html file/link/firefox internet shortcut on the desktop called "bookmarks.html". Worked swell. However, the bookmarks menu went along. It no longer appears under"bookmarks" on the menu bar. I was able to get it onto the toolbar. (star in tray). If I click on that, and then select "bookmarks sidebar", what appears in the sidebar is perfect. Just like new. But on the menu bar, on the dropdown menu under "bookmarks", no "bookmarks menu".

I can live with this BUT I really don't want to BECAUSE there are bizillion bookmarks in the bookmarks menu. I need to send them someplace (or gather them into a NEW folder, so that I can add newly created bookmarks and be all neat and organized.

How do I put the "bookmarks menu" that shows on the sidebar back under "bookmarks" ??? How do I get the bizillion bookmarks off of "bookmarks menu"? Is there a "select all", then "delete"? I don't want to lose the ones in the html folder on the desktop. I am happy with them being in an html folder on my desktop. Should I change the name of the html link to XYZ.html?

I just do not understand how the sidebar can look perfect but the menu bar doesn't.

Help, please !

I am unable to log onto investor.vanguard.com using Firefox. It has worked fine until last week. I confirmed the username/password are correct (they work fine on my phone app and using the Microsoft browser). I contacted Vanguard and they said they have not had any reported issues on the website.

When I click on the LOGON icon, a blue halo appears around the icon, but I cannot complete the logon. All other icons on the home page work properly on Firefox, but the LOGON does not. Deleting cookies did not help.

Are other Firefox users experiencing this on Vanguard, and if so, is there a fix?
