Hello, A couple weeks ago my Quickbooks Online software began requiring 2 tier authentication. This feature is disabled within the software settings and does not happen when using a Macbook. According to Quickbooks this issue is due to the browser (Firefox). I didn't change any setting prior to this issue. I did however reset to the default settings but the problem is not resolved. I've searched the Firefox settings for a solution but was unsuccessful. Can anyone help?

Thanks, Kathy

I think I have at least a partial solution to not being able to log in on certain pages. I was attempting to log into view details on our mortgage. When I was unable to do so I disabled AdNauseam. At this point I was able to get to the log in and did so successfully. When I reanabled AdNauseam I again was unable to get to the log in. Note: I had not made any modifications to the standard set from the initial installation.

Build 82.0.3 Windows 10.0.18363

I'm a modder and I've been using the script extenders on silverlock for years. It's a common modder's resource for a number of games I play. Now I'm getting a hazardous site warning (site certificate) and, when I accept the risk and continue, I get site not found. Quick fix: close Firefox, open Chrome. I'd rather continue on Firefox, but I guess that's a no-go.

I noticed that after Firefox is running for more then a few days it starts buffering my typing. Lags behind at least 10 - 20 seconds while I type and I am not that fast. I assume this is not normal. Any ideas on what may be causing this? If I close the app and reopen it goes away. Ver 82.0.3 on a Apple iMac.

When I open a pdf document in the Firefox pdf viewer, and I open the find bar to search for a phrase, the "next" and previous" arrows skip matches. "Next" takes you to match number 6, then match number 11, and so on. You get every fifth match. This is a real hassle with a very long document. How can I get it to work the usual way, and take you literally to the next match?

Dear Firefox:

I recently updated the browser.

When I block junk mail, it still comes back. Sometimes an email cannot be received, probably cookies?

The old browser had a blocked email list which could be viewed and unblocked. I cannot find this blocking list to view or an unblocking ability on the new browser. How does one manage blocked email?

FF is nagging me to no end to upgrade, from 82.0.3 to whatever. I would prefer to just get rid of the nags if that is possible.

Short of that, the upgrades are NEVER as advertised and always blow up things that are never covered in the upgrade release notes. I get the impression these upgrades are poorly tested. The last site-specific video AutoPlay problem I had took two months to fix -- no thanks to FF support. But I got it fixed. That involved Engineer Buddys at Intel and the source code.

Here I'll ask the same old question and no doubt get the same canned response -- Are there any unexpected blow-ups I need to know about NOT covered in the release notes ? Of course the answer will be No, because the volunteers are not privy to the thinking and failures of the developers.

Let me be clear about this: When/if I upgrade (because the changes wrought in my modified browser will be blown out and I'll need to co-opt more help with that) is there anything extant that will not work ? Anything at all -- especially with respect to video AutoPlay features ?

Upgrade agony got way too old a long, long time ago with respect to settings I had tweaked and got blown out...

Can anyone help with this ?

Preferred solution: Shutdown the upgrade nags.
