I am constantly getting emails cut off that do not get cut on friends programs. I keep getting these damn "secure connection" crap in the middle of a program that I am interested in. I pisses me off that cannot watch something that came from a friend that they are able to watch without the cutoff. Either quit cutting me off or I will cut moz://a off and go to another carrier. I have reached the end of my frustration!!!

When joining a Zoom meeting hosted on the browser rather than installed Zoom app, my speakers are not working and the troubleshooting error messages says the browser is blocking zoom from accessing the speakers. I can't find a setting in Firefox preferences to block/allow it. Speakers work on YouTube/Vimeo with no problems (speaker volume 100% and not muted). Speakers had been working with Zoom until a couple weeks ago. I don't want to install the Zoom app just because Google hates privacy and and I don't want to help them own my privacy anymore than I must. I use DuckDuckGo for the default search engine, have Ghostery for an Extension/add-on, and have the Firefox browser set for private window always. I have tried various cookie settings for the Zoom meetings and even the dreaded "accept all cookies" and have Firefox cookie handling set to Standard, with deleting all cookies and history upon exit. I am on 64-bit Windows 10 up to date as of 2/16/22, Dell computer updated to same date, and latest update of Firefox 2/18/22. I have done a number of web searches and not finding the speaker topic or error message other than three unanswered help requests from others with the same problem dated from July-Sept 2021.

I recently got a new phone so I disabled 2FA (Microsoft app) so I could activate it again on my new phone. Now I can't activate it because with either Microsoft or Google Authenticator, when I scan the QR code or type the manual code, the 2FA code displayed in the app gets rejected.

I realize, this is an old issue and has been around for years, but please for the love of god, make the master password popup less frustrating. Every single site with a login field triggers the popup. It really needs a setting, where you can browse the web and it never shows a popup, unless you click a button to actually login (could be next to the URL field)

Is there any known workaround, apart from always logging in?

changing settings to the most secure devastates one's online experience. reverting it back locks it in devastating mode.

in an effort to make my onlione presence most secure, i set my security and privacy settings to the maximum i could. this included the permanent privacy mode, but i was careful to set all my most commonly used websites to állow'in order to not be forced to go through hell anytime i needed to login. i quickly found that having that állow'list made no difference and i still had to go through burning hoops to log in every time so i reverted my settings back to how they used to be. well, not i am stuck in a situation where i still havew to go through multiple 2nd and 3rd and 4th tier security protocols for every website, none of my settings are being saved at all.

this has turned things into a real nightmare when what was expected was for the everyday sites i access would not force me to go through that, sites i access daily and trust. sort of the entire point of the állow'list. but it doesn't work at all, and going back to previous settings has essentially locked me into that world where i am endlessly having to login, approve my computer, my browser, verify my login [up to 4x each login on some sites!] and just want this to end.

so how do i get firefox to just go back to how the settings were before when just plain setting them to how they were before doesn't do it???

I asked the browser to accept an expired site certificate; it turns out, though, that the original owner of the site no longer uses that domain :{(

Fortunately, the phishing form was too obvious :{)

How do I tell the browser that I really don't want to use that site anymore?

Hi I am on Linux using Firefox-esr 91.5.0 and suddenly it started to show me that message on settings page. I have no Antivirus or anything. Were the problem comes from? On help/about page there's nothing mentioning the update restriction, neither when I click on the message. But it shows me a couple of different settings. Another thing that I've found so far is the setting "Always check if Firefox is your default browser" is unchecked AND disabled. I'm so worried about the issue, appreciate your help.

It seems that there was an internal page for permissions, namely about:permissions. As I was trying to find an answer to my question, I found many volunteers at Mozilla Support would talk about this, but what I'm asking for is different. I'm looking for a way to list websites per permission, that is, when I want to disable a permission for a bunch of websites at once, I specify the permission and remove the websites I do not want to have that permission. In one of the questions on the site, an extension called SQLite Manager was mentioned and seemed to be the solution. This extension, though, doesn't exist anymore. If what I'm looking for can be done through this extension, I'd like to know if there is an alternative. If it doesn't serve the purpose that I am talking about, I'd be happy to know if there is a different workaround.

Hi All, I am using firefox on my work laptop and it was working fine, until today that it was updated to the new version: 94.0.2 (64-bit)

I noticed that the new version was very fast, so I decided to switch from Chrome to Firefox. I imported all my logins and bookmarks, but when I go to a website, in the part where I should enter my login information, the drop-down menu does not show up, even though I have several saves usernames and passwords! I tried entering my logins manually into the password manager, but they still do not show up. The previous saved logins show up and work fine. But the new ones don't. Can you help me solve this issue? the image shows what I mean. The older login that was saved before the new update shows, but none of the other 4 logins that I imported or manually entered into the password manager show up.

Is there some issues with FireFox running on Apple's original M1 processor?

Regardless of selecting an email or ID, then hitting "Shift + Delete" the login field will continue to not only hold the login used on the site previously, but also other IDs.

When logging into mozilla.org for support, my email address didn't appear, however my business email did. I've never entered my business email address on Mozilla's website.
