I have been using Firefox for a long time. I can't even think of using another of those of the other browsers tht are so intrusive. I just noticed, and I think it is new,, that my history button shows my personal emails I have visited. Of course no one can go there and see the entire email massage without my login and pwd. But it is still awful - for example I just looked again and there is the security verification code - 3****2 - I just used to sign up for Firefox Accounts. So all my subjects of personal concern are right there for all the world to see what I am talking about with other people. I don't have anything to hide (right now) but I can imagine many ideas that I would rather not have snooping eyes able to see. I'm sure that many people with different lifestyles that me would be LIVID if they knew that their subjects of emails were available to be visible on an open page. - Here are some others in my history list: "Adrian-Your credit limit has increased--Chase..." "John L***** has joined your personal meeting room" "Lucky Brand Jeans + casual pants now buy one get 1 . . ." "Your Online Bill is available - Verizon Wireles . . ." - - - Like I said, I don't remember ever seeing history references to my personal emails before. I enjoy using the history button - it's much faster than going to bookmarks or typing in. I have looked at the subjects of help but it doesn't seem to cover this. I hope I don't have to go to the trouble of VPN or "Always delete history" - - hope you can help with a bug fix or simple setting. - - Jerme

Emails with .PDF attachments have the Firefox logo on them and are opened by the Firefox.PDF "app". I want it totally disabled. I don't want to ever see it again. I have wasted two hours trying to figure out how to just use Adobe .PDF.

For downloads I have made the selection to use Adobe.PDF. That works.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your help! Background: I use FB container, do not have a FB account (although did several years ago), and have other privacy add-ons through Mozilla. I have 'high' security settings. Issue: When I am asked to create an account using an email address - the FB container pops up and indicates that if I use my 'real' email address (I have a few on different services) - FB can track me. Note that FB container does not pop up when using other sites where email accounts are required. Question(s): Can FB track me even though I don't have a FB account? Even if I use an email alias - am I still protected from FB?

I looked at Relay - but it looks like it needs access to your computer and complicated.

Thanks again. You are a great team of folks who volunteer.

Video playback fails to load. When accessing videos from Crunchyroll on a Macbook pro running Monterey2.3.1 (21E258) from Firefox 98.0.2 (64-bit), I see a spinning animation that never stops. I can access the same content from Crunchyroll by using Firefox from my iPhone without issue. I can view other streaming content like YouTube and Netflix without error. Is there a setting or other fix that I can employ to make this work? I have previously used a workaround with an extension that emulates a mobile environment. Unfortunately this no longer works. TIA for your help.

Hello,

after installing 98.01 recently a tab was opened that informed about a feature for Firefox installations on smartphones: the site said that it is possible to continue my work where I stopped before, including open tabs, bookmarks etc.

I don't have a smartphone - I only use firefox on my notebook. Since I'm considering to buy a new notebook in the upcoming weeks I ask myself how it is possible to migrate my current firefox installastion to a new notebook. Especially I'd like to have all my open tabs, bookmarks and cookies back after having installed firefox on the new notebook.

How can I do this? GreetZ and thanks a lot in advance!
