I am finding a web site that I have used for many years is suddenly not working as the login will not work. I have contacted the compmany whose website i use and they have taken me through steps that point to an issue with firefox. (I can get acces to the site with MS Edge). If firefox thinks there si a security issue I cannor find how to make teh site an exception.

I also see that firefox thinks my browser preferences are being managed by my organisation. In fact I am my organisation and dont recall having set up a policy for my company

Can you help pls

Thanks

Version 94.0.2 (64-bit) Windows 10

Hi.

A few times in Settings I selected History->Never remember history, yet upon reopening the browser the setting was changed to "Use custom settings for history" and "Always use private mode." Why is this happening?

The larger issue is Cached Web Content (CWC), which doesn't completely delete like everything else. No matter the settings to delete everything upon closing or never remember, every time I reopen FF and click Clear Data there is some data in CWC (albeit in kb). I've read many pages and posts here and it's still not clear: A) Why isn't it 0 bytes and B) If a previously visited site can access the CWC, then isn't that a strike against privacy?

Sincerley,

Hank

I recently googled a product and clicked on a link to their site (not an ad result). Shortly after I got an email from the company saying "thanks for checking us out." I never filled in any form with my email address. Is Firefox allowing Google to send my email address to the company so they can send marketing emails? I have Enhanced Tracking Protection on.

Hello,

When going to logon to Indiegogo.com I first reopen it in a Facebook container but once I do that the container goes away.

The link I visit: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/wemax-go-pro-thinnest-alpd-smart-laser-projector?utm_source=launchemail+gator&utm_medium=launchemail+gator&utm_campaign=launchemail+gator#/

Whether I copy and paste the link in a new FB container or click the tab to reopen in FB container it goes away immediately.

So, I think this may be a Windows thing because it happens in Chrome too. Every few months I like to export my passwords and bookmarks to a portable SSD just to have backed up. Now, when I go to export my passwords into an Excel file, it asks for my Windows login credentials. I 100% know my Windows credentials and can log into microsoft.com or any microsoft website fine. When I type them into Firefox, it says incorrect.

I even went to CMD and typed whoami and used that since that's my "Windows name" instead of my username or email address associated with Windows, and used my windows password and IT STILL said incorrect.

Please, how do I temporarily disable this feature or change it from needing my Windows password to my code to actually let me into Windows once my PC boots at the default image (Yes, I tried the code with all usernames too, no luck).

Thanks for any help.

I have a new PC with Windows 11. Setting default programs in 11 is very complicated. My email client is Microsoft Outlook (https://outlook.live.com/owa/), which is accessed through the Firefox browser. When I get an email with an email link it defaults to "mailto", which defaults to the Windows Mail app, which I do not use. How can I make "mailto" default to Microsoft Outlook (https://outlook.live.com/owa/) running through Firefox?

I tried optimising firefox's settings for the most possible privacy. When i visit firstpartysimulator.org and complete the test, the result claims i do have a decent protection against tracking while my "software" is not checking for "do not track policies". By software im not sure if this is ment to be the operatingsystem or the browser, firefox. The result also shows i do have a nearly unique fingerprint. If i remove one of my current extensions -> canvas blocker, i do have a unique fingerprint. This is not good as i see it.

How can i make firefox (or windows if so) check for do not track policies? I noticed the duckduckgo addon claims to always check for do not track policies but im not sure if i really need this extension. Also do not track only works if the host website supports it as far as i know. To get this to an end, the question is 1, how to make us of do not track policies, 2 how can i make my fingerprint less unique? I only changed a couple settings in about:config and use a total of 3 browser extensions, this shouldnt be to much unique, or?
