I can't find any way to add to the list of document types and applications. I know I must have done (because they are different from my wife's options), but now she needs to add one, and there is no immediately obvious way to do this. How do I add a new entry in the list in Settings/General/Files and Applications/Applications?

Thanks,

Tony

All of a sudden every time I try to sign in on Yahoo mail I get a warning "We've noticed some unusual account activity" and I have to get a text (which I pay for individually) to get a code to continue (the code I get by email which would not cost me anything never works). I have no problem when I use Microsoft Edge. What is happening and how can it be fixed.

Hey Firefox Agent: Well I just wrote this out in a prior communication, but it got lost when I tried to figure out how to provide: Troubleshooting Information (optional):

Okay, so here we go again. But I am not going to provide: Troubleshooting Information (optional):

Here's the problem: In my Hotmail account, I am getting email "cards" (entries in my Hotmail account) that say: Unusual Sign-In Activity. Now recently, I spent a lot of time finally contacting and spending time with a Microsoft Tech Support agent. This agent helped me change the password on my main Hotmail account. Yet, I am still getting these annoying email "cards" in my Hotmail account. Now, I've analyzed these various email "cards" and I discovered a few things relating to Firefox. Here's what I found on all (5) of these separate email "cards": Sign-in details Country/region: Australia IP address: Please note I eliminated the IP address here because I don't know if it safe to do so or if I will be compromising my computer in any way. In order to share this IP address, I need to know if I am now dealing with an official Firefox support agent. If so and if it is necessary to share the IP address then please let me know in your follow up response. Date: 11/1/2022 4:46 PM (GMT) Platform: Windows Browser: Firefox Today, by the way, is: Sun 5 Feb 23 Time now: 4:16p Est at the time of writing this here line. It is interesting that the email "cards", all of them, have the same date and time: 11/1/2022 4:46 PM (GMT) There's something not right about receiving email "cards" from back in November 2022.

Now if you--the Firefox Support Agent--know what I can do to resolve and stop this annoying problem then please let me know by sending me an email to my email address. You have it from my Firefox account. Gosh, this is such an annoying problem. If you can help then please do so. Thank you.

Ever since Firefox updated today I've been unable to use the browser. It takes at least 5 minutes or more minutes to load, I can't manually log into any websites until the speeddial finally loads, and the speeddial addon refuses to come up for at least 5 minutes, I can't log into Dropbox even with the speeddial up and running because the capcha won't popup...and on and on.

What in the world has been done to it? I'm using another browser just to contact support.

OK, I am very angry ....

FF asks me to update, when i launch the browser, and it continues doing so when browsing. I HATE THIS BEHAVIOUR and I know how to use a computer.

     I do not need to be mollycoddled by some 2bit computer company that has no idea what Professional computer users need. 
         Bare in mind I am in the mood to migrate away from FF completely without a tick button answer. 
         I am also in the mood to take drastic action if this is not resolved. IT SHOULD BE IN THE SOFTWARE IF I SELECT IT.

I want to use FF without an automatic update, which the software DOES NOT ALLOW (i'd like to MURDER the fuckwit who said that should be the norm).

I am running FF 107.01 (i don't care if its out of date).

Previous .json answer did not work. neither did going into settings.

only a complete ban on updates will suffice. (i will update myself as i feel like it.) I will not tolerate another answer.

FIX IT NOW!!!!

I have that issue also it shows up anytime I try PNC.com or my health care insurance. The workaround is using Firefox's private window. I removed my saved login and dumped my data, cookies, site data, and cache but that didn't help. That has been a pain restoring other sites I had saved, but that's another story.

I recently upgraded from 108.0.2 (64-bit) to 109.01 but it slowed my PC down to the point of uselessness. Nothing else changed application or OS-wise. PC, OS and all Apps are current & up to date. Defrag, Cache Clear a& all similar utilities run on scheduled basis prior to upgrade and everything A-OK.

Is this a Known Issue? If so, is there a fix coming

When accessing certain pages on various websites I get, 'Access Denied You don't have permission to access the requested URL on this server. Reference: 18.a7bf2617.1675627515.5e83de8" I do not get this message when using any other browser. i.e. I make no changes to any settings. I have tried to turn off VPN, disable all Firefox entensions, but nothing works. Interestingly, for some websites, the denial may be returned from only some pages within a website. I have no problems with Google Chrome (a browser which I hate to use) Apparently, each time I get an "Access Denied" message, the reference number changes. Credentials Issue??

For several weeks now I have been unable to sign in or track packages on FedEx.com. I have had to use Microsoft Edge to access FedEx.com. I never used to have this problem. I don't know what Mozilla did, but I wished it could be undone! I use a VPN, ExpressVPN, and thought this was the problem at first, but it is not. I turned off ExpressVPN and still cannot access FedEx.com. Same with using AT&T Broadband. I have tried cleaning my history/cookies and it has no affect whether I use ExpressVPN or AT&T Broadband. I went to FedEx.com on Mozilla and clicked the 'shield' and turned off Mozilla's Enhanced Tracking Feature. I still can not use FedEx.com.

I see no solution to this issue unless I can find some way to completely turn off your Enhanced Tracking software that you have added. It is ridiculous that I have to use Microsoft Edge every time I want to access FedEx.

What is the solution?

FireFox to citizensbank.com gets "Access Denied on this server." See details below. Works if use Edge. Perhaps Citizens Bank doesn't like FireFox? Sometimes it works, and other times not. Can get to front page and login page if use Edge.

Using Asus laptop, Mozilla VPN (turning vpn off doesn't change behavior), connected to net via WiFi and DSL.

Odd thing is can connect using FireFox from hardwired desktop. Desktop is fairly old, laptop fairly new.

Failure details:

I've noticed something odd the last few days. occasionally, Archive of Our Own— also known as AO3— will stop working properly after visiting a couple different stories, being unusable for most of the day as the pages will come up blank no matter what I click on, or even if I try to connect to a bookmarked page. This is not a consistent thing however. I recently updated to version 109.0.1 of Firefox, but this started happening a few days before the update. It also just happened about five minutes ago. Should I clear my cache and try again, or is there a website issue on their end I'm just not seeing?

EDIT: Ok, so I tried clearing cache and cookies and this is still occurring. No clue why.
