Malwarebytes interrupted with a pop-up alert saying Firefox was trying to connect to IP address

167.71.99.170 (https://urlhaus.abuse.ch/url/348428/),

which apparently might be bad?

Interestingly, the above urlhaus link initially reported the hit on the IP address per a Pascal Geenens (@geenensp on twitter) who writes for a security blog at

Thanks to any and all who might be able to help!

Hallo, Cookies should by private to one Browser Window. So for example, if I open a second Tab with youtube, or whatever, I would like to have my login data from the first tab. But if I open a second window, this data should not be seen. I don't want other sites to be able to see my login.

The cookies should be deleted, when the Window with all Tabs is closed, independent from other open Browser windows. How can I realize this? Thank you, Michael Lange

In the last few weeks Firefox 77.0.1 opens links just by moving the mouse pointer over them sometimes. Normally you would click or right-click to open in a new tab but often I am having links just open of on their own. I was on the phone with a vendor navigating their site when I kept ending up on a different page. Did something change with this version? The vendor also said they have been having issues with Firefox the last week or so. Using Windows 7sp1 32bit. Thanks

Thank you, My dell laptop win 7 pro, latest firefox, have one cell phone added to device.

Cell phone, android 4.4.4 droid maxx, firefox for android.

When I access two email accounts from my cell phone I go right in with no password.

When I try to access other accounts it asks for a master password, when I enter the password it just goes back to "enter master password", if I hit cancel 4-7 times it will go away and let me in but I have to manually enter password. Reloaded firefox, very few apps,automatic updates.

I use my bookmarks to keep track of fanfiction I want to read on archiveofourown.org. The site features a 'history' section itself. Recently I noticed that stories I've bookmarked say that I've visited them way more than I have. The 'How many times you've visited this page' ranges between 30 and 500 times for each story, when I've only actually clicked on them once myself as I bookmarked them. Is firefox constantly opening/pinging my bookmarks and is that what is being reflected on archiveofourown.org?

Thanks!

Please change back the URL bar ever since it was added a month ago or whenever it has been SO annoying. I'm about to change browsers because I cannot stand it anymore. It is visually unattractive and obnoxious looking.

Also, highlighted text in it is a blue font color with no highlight. Why is this different from every other Windows program?? It is not easy to tell that text is highlighted. It should be HIGHLIGHTED blue with a white font color.

Hi,

I am an Etsy shop owner. I have been told that Firefox is the best browser to use for adding new listings and editing existing listings in my Etsy shop.

However, the problem that I am having with Firefox is this: when I want to either add a listing or edit one, I get a yellow bar at the top that says: A website is slowing down your computer, either click stop it or wait. I have tried both and both give me the same problem. The 'radio' buttons become unusable on the site and I cannot click on them anymore (such as the Publish button, for example). So I am unable to save any of my work and must just shut down. I have also tried do nothing and this just freezes everything.

This is very very frustrating and counterproductive. PLEASE HELP ME!

I think I have successfully downloaded DeepSleep and opened the tar file using 7-zip.

I cannot figure out how to start it, or if will start at all.

The comments I see on the web seem to indicate that is not compatible with Windows. but the documentation says it is?

The app I have downloaded and untared does not seem to open. It does not show in my Control Panels apps list.

What I am seeing on the web is that it is a very complicated install and requires other modules, like python?

Is there some way a novice can get this going easily?

Thanks

Why can't I access, comment on Facebook now with the new upgrade? I'm ready to just delete Firefox and go with Safari, and hopefully never the dreadful Google Chrome.

I need help. I'm certain it's just a checkbox somewhere but I don't have hours to peruse multiple articles and online gibberish to try to find it.

Can someone actually help - Not the standard I tried, this and that, but actual help and definitive direction?

Every day the first time I run Firefox I get a popup in the top right corner saying 'Get the new Microsoft Edge". I've seen the links to turning off 'Get tips, tricks and suggestion' in settings; this is a company laptop and that is set to off by my company.

The thing is I do have Edge and I use it, it just isn't my default browser. Any suggestion?

Hi guys, I have a problem with firefox. The option to undo close tab (whether its the shortcut, or the right click on tabs menu) doesn't work correctly for me, it always open a randomly closed page from a while ago and not the recently closed one.

I thought it was a problem with how I close the tabs (ie. if i click on the x or ctrl+w, or the mouse wheel) but it doesn't make a difference, the undo closed tab still doesn't work right.

I tried looking for a solution on here and online but found nothing concrete. So, I appreciate any help.
