My Firefox wants to upgrade itself to version 79.

I'm now running version 73. Earlier this year Firefox auto-updated itself to version 74. Cors Everywhere did not work in version 74, and I need to use Cors Everywhere frequently. To get Cors Everywhere to work, I had to go back to version 73, and of course lost all my bookmarks, logins, etc.

So before allowing it to update to version 79, I'd like to know if Cors Everywhere works in version 79.

Thank you.

In the past few weeks when I click in an Outlook email "click here to view it in a web browser", the page is opened by Internet Explorer. It used to be Firefox. How can I clear out IE? Firefox is listed as the default browser. Interestingly when I posted the question, the contents of this message was deleted and was not sent. Is that MS at work?

Hi, I have a problem with login in to my Firefox Sync Account, after clean installation of Windows 10. I have not recall to enable 2FA in Firefox Sync i have never used it to activate account on my PC or Android Phone. I'm using 2FA to my Google Account witch is the email for my Firefox Sync Account. But supposedlyi did.

I have tried to use keys generated by Google Authenticator (witch is only 2FA token I use, not counting Facebook App, witch I use only for FB) but no success. I tried to use this link https://accounts.firefox.com/signin and then use proper password. Then there is an information to check email for confirmation link. I get no email, noting in spam nothing nowhere. I did add the accounts@firefox.com email address to protect it from spam filters, but nothing in 4 days, waiting for a miracle. 

In an act of desperation i did change the password for the account. And i received email to confirm this chance witch a did. The email was send from accounts@firefox.com e-mail, and it arrived in my inbox immediately.

Why i do not get the confirmation email?

Ok, so apparently I have forgotten my master password. How I did this I have no clue since its the same password I use for everything, and I know its a bad idea, but I just wanted an extra layer in case someone stole my laptop.

So, since if I have forgotten my master password, that is the same as 99% of my other passwords, I CANNOT take the chance of just reseting it and losing all the others, cause surely I won't get them right. I know I won't be able to login into google they've refused to allow me access to my main account with them for months. I won't get into that stuffs just this stuff.

I've been reading through the site here, and have tried a thing or two but none of the questions really sound like what I need:

I've forgotten my master password, and I cannot reset it for fear of losing my other passwords which may have been forgot. I'm set as the default user and there are no other users for the computer or browser. Google has been a bear about letting me into my accounts there, so the fear of losing what I can access is real.

Thanks for reading, I appreciate what you guys are doing here in your free time. Let me know what you think, even if I'm screwed.

I want to change my default search engine to Google Australia so I get more relevant result, rather than changing the URL after I have searched. Please tell me there is a way to do this! If not I'll have to change browsers because 99% of my searches are local so I have to change this all the time.

Why does pressing the number 5 cause Firefox to refresh the page?

Some of the time, but not all the time, Firefox will refresh the page I'm on when I press the number 5 on my Macbook Pro (tested on 2019 and 2015). I'm using the latest version of Firefox and it's been like this for a while. This gets really annoying when I need to type the number 5 at the end of a long form and it just refreshes the page.

I know that F5 reloads the page but there is no chance of me pressing F5 since I would need to hold the Fn key and press the touchbar to do this. I've also logged my keys to make sure that F5 wasn't being registered somehow.

Dear Community,

All of my other desktop icons render as normal .... strangely the Firefox logo has disappeared from the icon. I can still use the icon/shortcut without issue, but the logo is missing and replaced by some type of generic looking icon. Any ideas please? Thank you in advance.

Printing Webpages Using Firefox: Issue Resolved

Version 73.0.1

When printing a webpage from Firefox (Open Menu->Print), the print preview mode is displayed. On most websites with multiple pages, each page displays the full text in order.

However, on some websites with multiple pages, the first page displays text but the second page only shows the header in the top left and the website in the top right but the page is blank. On other webpages, full webpage text is displayed but it is out of order.

When using Opera, the webpages that showed blank text or out of order text in Firefox are displayed completely and in the correct order.

Is it a website browser compatibility and configuration issue (the webpage is only configured correctly for certain browsers) or Is this a known Firefox glitch that causes some pages not to be displayed correctly in print preview mode?

I hope that my question is clear.
