Hello, I am having an problem with my VPN. It was there and now it's not (I'm sure it must be my fault). I have signed out and reset multiple times to no avail. In settings it indicates it is on, however it does not give me the option to turn it off or on. In addition the icon on the Firefox browser also indicates it's on but the does not change color as before. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank You For Your Time.

I have all the correct privacy settings. To save the sites cookies, history, etc. I have NOT checked on the site's website to use 2 step verification. Yet EVERYDAY I am asked to do so, even a few times a day if a few hours have passed. Why? I don't know what else to do since I have contacted the website and they have told me to set my browser as it IS ALREADY SET.

Can you give me back my "Stuff" as it's all gone now after a change in my gmail because it wanted 3 days to confirm my request for a new password? I made a new account. After a support request to Moto G (when I could no longer download my moto g pictures), my personal files (i.e. recipes, research on US Covid 19 vaccines, and notes on anything from a Spanish learning program to family info, etc) was taken. Their tech support in the US, Ryan, helped me and it vanished and he says he can't reset it. Even though he had access through my cell and laptop.

It's a great hack. Can you help me? Cheri

"They" did leave me my creation "Family slide show" but not the historic one made for the elders.

Hi,

So I have a kind of unusual problem. I am currently logged into my Firefox account (obviously) and have access to all my saved material/history. The problem is I do not know my current password (the ones saved in the password manager are old/not correct) and I can't reset it without losing all my info. This is mostly a problem because I want to activate Firefox sync on another computer. Does anyone know how I can find out my current password without resetting everything?

Thanks!

Another user asked the same question May 2020 and nothing has changed. It is quite annoying to have Lockwise automatically name an entry often identical to the website address and sometimes just with the IP (e.g. http://10.0.0.1), and then to have no ability to change the name of the login :(

I sometimes have to go to the URL just to figure out what the URL link is. It needs to be allow the name to be changed to be able to make this more intuitive.

Can you please add this capability?

I found in 87.0 and now 88.0 that even after uninstalling and installing a new version, there is after clicking Menu/Options a message on top of the window:

" ! Your browser is controlled by your organisation" This is not true, there is no organisation on this PC. After clicking the link here is a new window saying there is a application active that is called "Disable App Update". After clicking "documentation" on the left side there opens a list of applications to modify the operation of Firefox. When clicking the Disable App Udate there opens a application text with on top GitHub and activities from M.Kaply Show/ Home Button Policy Strange that it says Disable Firefox Updates. Is this application installed by you? Are you perhaps 'the organisation'? Please let me know if this is safe or not.

Most sites make a lot of noise about browser.pagethumbnails.capturing_disabled - and they repeat just one after another that this should be set to "true" to prevent thumbnail storage. But when you look at the right source, like: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Preferences/Preference_reference/browser.pagethumbnails.capturing_disabled

true (default)

   The application creates screenshots of visited web pages.

false

   The application doesn't create screenshots of visited web pages. 

The name of the parameter is confusing. But it seems that it should be set to "false" to prevent thumbnail storage. And the right question should be about reading abilities ;) But I will ask another one - does Mozilla will try to conntact with those sites and say them that they are wrong? Have a nice day folks! :)

I am using the firefox version 17 and when i drag and drop an image on my website. It gives me the following error.

Unable to access local files due to browser security settings. To overcome this, follow these steps: (1) Enter "about:config" in the URL field; (2) Right click and select New->Boolean; (3) Enter "signed.applets.codebase_principal_support" (without the quotes) as a new preference name; (4) Click OK and try loading the file again. Or go to the homepage for a link to the tutorial on how to do it.

I have completed the above steps and it is still showing the same error message. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks.
