keeping info safe regardless of device

I want to make a suggestion: This last week I was financially hacked and I have to close all my bank accounts, etc. My biggest concern is anyone with my FF login info can get all my passwords, etc, if they compromise my phone or any device with my browser, and reach into EVERY financial institution I am affiliated with, not just my bank.

My suggested solution: Since all my accounts contain all my info in Firefox, let me choose one that I can control with biometric login only so I can block all my info unless my hands have been cutoff. You can add a back door with multiple info requests to the print, or request additional fingers, if I click add this. I am terrified they will get to ALL my empty credit cards since they hacked all my info. Personally I love the fingerprint, and if I lock it, it can ONLY be unlocked with my fingerprint, or additional things I choose. I don't have all my pwds handy, nor could I ever have what all I need. I am CONSTANTLY locked out because I don't recall my pw.

I am using the latest version of Firefox on the latest version of Mac OS Ventura, 13.3.1 (a). I wanted to have a sidebar showing the websites bookmarked in my toolbar. In researching how to do this, it said I needed to use the menu button at the top left of the address bar to do this. The only thing is I have no menu button! Can you please tell me how to add the menu botton to my address bar so I can use the options it affords. I have added a screenshot of this Firefox window so you can see there is no menu button here.

I would very much appreciate it if you would get back to me as soon as possible so I can make Firefox more workable for me.

Thanks in advance for the help!

How do I block the 'You are seeing this message because ad or script blocking software is interfering with this page. Disable any ad or script blocking software, then reload this page.' ?

I have been using ublock origin add-on for years without any issues. For the past few weeks, pop up videos as well as above alert message appears on several news sites. Is this a glitch with the add-on or firefox browser issues?

Many thanks!

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I haven't disabled or refused to accept cookies and I can't find the answer on Firefox website.

I'm working on a web app and need to be able to test it locally. Firefox has no decided to allow only HTTPS when trying to access this specific app. I have tried removing it from history, but it makes no difference. I've restarted Firefox, I've restarted the machine. Nothing seems to work. Typing in "http://localhost<remainder of URL>" does not work, Firefox simply changes my explicit request for HTTP to HTTPS and access to the site fails.

This is not a general setting. I have other web apps I've been working on that are all accessible in Firefox and are being accessed using HTTP rather than HTTPS. It seems that Firefox has selected this specific app. In particular, HTTPS-only mode is obviously not enabled.

How do I get Firefox to accept that when I type in HTTP://... that I actually mean HTTP://... and not HTTPS://...?

I am trying to run firefox unofficially run a windows vista Virtual Machine using the Windows Vista Extended Kernel, but is says the the dll "api-ms-win-core-sysinfo-l1-1-0.dll" is missing. It did this a couple of times and i was able to copy over all other dlls, but after placing this one in Windows,System32,Program Files/Mozilla Firefox and SysWOW64 and re-registering it, it still gives me an error. Could you please provide the location of the required dll since it can't find it.
