How do you access Mozilla VPN after you have logged into firefox account - it only shows how to download and I have already downloaded it. I simply want to turn on the VPN and select the location but no instructions are available for this or at least the instructions are not clear.

Cloudflare changed their algorithms recently and now it doesn't let me pass their DDoS protection page with `privacy.resistFingerprinting` option enabled. Even if I solve CAPTCHA multiple times. This is a huge problem because It is used on many many MANY websites.

I browsed a clothing website for less than 5 minutes by typing in the address and not using any links. Shortly after I receive an email asking if I was still interested in what I was looking at. Does Firefox share my email address with websites I'm visiting? I believe the email is coming from SafeOpt, not the website I visited. I do have "do not track" options selected in Firefox.

I'm using the Firefox secure password generator. However, I notice that will generate a specific password for a given site and then if I for some reason reload, it'll generate the same password again. Can I force a new one?

I am writing here from Chrome browser because in accounts.firefox.com I get "Cookies and local storage are required. Please enable... Try again". Cookies are already enabled, Manage Cookies shows a lot of them -some minutes old (I had deleted them in one of the attempts to fix the issue, also recent history and other privacy stuff). Some pages I access regularly remain blank. One of them displays its content for 1/2 second. Other shows me the login page but I cannot login. Other sites I can access to the main page but its links. About required "local storage" there's nothing about that under Settings search. FF 92.0 Ubuntu 20.04 I've been using Ubuntu/Firefox for 14 years. Thank you

Hello I have used Firefox since 2016 and back then I had stored some passwords on the browser (without a Firefox account). After some time my PC hard drive stopped working, and I still had passwords saved on the browser. Afterwards I managed to get a new PC set up, which after a few years started to break down. This time, before the device had fully stopped working, I decided to uninstall Firefox. I realized afterwards that a folder had been created on my desktop named 'old Firefox data'. I managed to see my saved passwords in a folder. But bringing back the talk about passwords on my old hard drive, are they saved on some kind of database? I would like to remove all my past data as it helps with my obsessive compulsive disorder. Also, about the 'old Firefox data' folder, did my saved passwords also save on any database after uninstalling Firefox? Thanks

Hi, I've been using Firefox as my default browser for years, this week I have started to see Secure Connection Failed pages when I try and connect to websites. There is a Try Again button and this always directs me to the correct page.


Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.bbc.co.uk. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem.

This problem happens from Favourites, links from other websites or URLs passed from applications etc. I'm on the latest version of Firefox 92.0 64bit.

I'm not seeing any similar issues on other browsers (Chrome and Edge)

Any idea why this has just started happening and what I can do to stop it?

Many thanks Richard

About a week ago, Firefox began occasionally opening a webpage or even my Google login window in some random language. Opening a new tab and closing the errant tab would result in the same page opening correctly in English. The language used when Firefox erred was never the same twice. In the last couple days the rate of errors has accelerated. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Is someone other than me using my Firefox credentials?

I want to disable all of the automatic suggestions and autocomplete functions. I am totally blind, and I have recently had problems with a suggestion appear which was wrong! I entered my four-digit address, and the autosuggestions popped up several addresses - ALL OF WHICH WERE WRONG! I was very annoyed arrowing through the items, listening to them spoken, and finding that NONE of them were correct. I got lost in one of those darned suggestion systems while finalizing an order and eventually closed Firefox and started the process over. I had those darned suggestions turned off at one time, but they must have come back on when the last update occurred. So i want to fix Firefox so that it will simply let me type in the needed information - address, or whatever is needed - with no suggestions popping up - hopefully so they will stay off PERMANENTLY!

All of a sudden I have to log in to all the common websites I use such as Yahoo mail. It could have been something I changed but I don't know what. From what I understand it may have something to do with the setting Cookies and site data. I think that if the box that says "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is checked then the log ins will not be remembered. The problem I have is that particular setting is ticked and it is shaded and I cant uncheck it. Can someone provide a simple solution please?
