Good day,

Really happy to see that mozilla is tightening up security. But unfortunately, I can't enroll into Two-Step Authentication everytime I enter code it's not being accepted. I tried multiple android apps of those codes and non of them work for me.

Because of that, I lost access to addons.mozilla.com account, because system doesn't let me in without 2step auth enabled.

Any chance I can use yubikey's intead of those auth apps? or anything else I can do?

Facebook does NOT require any HSTS, Edge goes there with no problem. This is why I deleted Firefox last night, I downloaded it again to try to get there and what do you know, it worked. That is until it told me to refresh, then all of a sudden you claim it requires this HSTS which is crap. The only reason I'm not on Edge now is one small little imperfection that Firefox doesn't have. So I guess I'll be deleting Firefox yet again with it's HSTS nonsense.

The password manaer and autofill works just fine. but every damn time I try to log into anything I have to do the F-ing two factor authentication everytime. I'm so sick of it. It even does that even though I selected "trust this browser or device or whatever". I hate 2FA I dont care how secure it is its a pain in the ass!!!

Hello,

I believe this issue started ever since I upgraded my PC to Windows 11, and has persisted through a full reinstall. I continually get intermittent SSL errors of all types when visiting any websites. Simply refreshing the page temporarily resolves the issue, but I'd estimate 20% of the time when I try to load a webpage I get the error. This does not happen on any other browser, or Firefox on any other device on my network. Interestingly I believe this even happened on the same machine inside a Linux VM in VMware, but I'm not 100% I am remembering that right. So far, I have tried various fixes including resetting certificate authorities and changing Firefox to use the Windows certificate store in about:config, but nothing has worked so far. I'm all ears for any ideas.

Thanks!

I have credit card autofill enabled, because I do a lot of business online and it is very convenient. Maddeningly, it has started doing something I can't find a way to fix. I put the mouse over the box asking for a credit card number, the saved numbers pop up, I select one, and then the pop-up box disappears without filling in the credit card number. There has got to be a fix for this, but I cannot find it. Pls. advise...

When I start a fresh session in firefox there is always some Kb of data showing under the "Cookies and site data" section in settings. How can it have site data and/or cookies when it hasnt even visited anything yet? Whats worse is that sometimes it can be around 8Mb. So even if it is something that firefox itself puts in that folder upon starting a new session why does the data size vary that much? And its not random, it will either be a couple of tens of Kb or around 8Mb.

I have "Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" checked. Under "Manage exceptions" there are none. History is set to "Never remember".

I actually just checked now. Backed the text above to a file, turned all my addons off, and exited firefox entirely. Made sure there there are no firefox processes running, started it up to blank tab, and first thing I see is that there are 8.8Mb of data under the "Cookies and site data" section. I press the clear data button and exit entirely again. No processes running, start a new one, and theres 72Kb of data there. What is that?

How do I change my "saved" email Address in your browser? It currently has my very old email address: [edited email from public] @cox.net. Many websites display that old setting associated with my info/reply. In my canned responses, I can change/update my name, phone #, etc....but cannot repeat cannot change the email address. The block displays: [edited email from public] @cox.net. I have went to settings, privacy & security, etc in your application to search how I can update this Old Email Address. Your application always sends email to my correct address: [edited email from public] @gmail.com but when I reply to the site/request my response/page displays the old incorrect email. Please Please advise how I can correct this severe problem. It prevents me from donating to viable causes/programs because my reply lists my incorrect email address.....BTW I will be most most happy to donate to you guys if we can get this error corrected. Thank You in advance for our help. Wayne Bostic, [removed phone# from public], [removed email from public]

When ever I start Firefox it asks for the master password. I am not using sync. OS is Windows 11. On my laptop which is running the same OS it does not ask for the master password, even though they are both pointing to the same homepage of google.com

I have tried disabling the password and re-enable, that does not work. If there is another setting I haven't found it yet.
