Some websites prompt users to sign up for email notifications momentarily after arriving on the homepage. I have noticed in Firefox that, on some websites, this notification does not show. However, the background of the webpage is still locked - as though it is still expecting a response on the prompt that is not shown.

For me, this is occurring on TitanFitness.com. As seen in the screenshot, the website greys out and cannot be used. However, the prompt does not show.

I have automatic Firefox updates on, placed this website on popup exceptions, and allowed notifications. None of these solutions work. I'm not sure what other settings in browser could fix this. This website works on other browsers such as Edge and Chrome.

Why are there Chrome .idb files in my Firefox 85 browser? I've never used Chrome browser and don't have Chrome installed. These idb files take up a large amount of space. Also when first downloaded 85 seemed pretty fast. Now, after a few days it is back to being pretty slow. Could this Chrome stuff be effecting my browser in an adverse way?

Hello, i was trying to configurate my wifi using ethernet connection and i got the messege several times even trying to access my provider page and my router page, however it does'nt happend with youtube, some how finally i got to my router page introduced my user id and password, i had to change my wifi antena and try with a a diferent driver but finally got my wifi working. But after that i got for first time in my life a blue screen on Windows 10.

Maybe isn't a big problem but i don't understand what happened, Firefox detected a true risk problem cause the ethernet conncection wasn't safe? Something (a virus or malware) enter my pc? Or was because a internal problem between firefox and a new not configureted router?

Also that messege appear on my android firefox one time.

Thank you and sorry for my english.

I could not log in with previous TOTP any more so I used a backup recovery code to gain access to the account. Disabled non-working TOTP and now I am trying to re-enable 2FA, but every time I successfully go through the process (there is a green bar on top of the screen that says "Two-step authentication enabled"), the end result is that 2FA is still disabled and not required when logging in to the firefox account.

I have a few add-ons installed in Firefox (85.0.1, 64-bit, under Windows 10, 1909), but when I open a Private Browsing window, I can no longer access them. True, they are still there and can be seen listed under Menu/Add-ons, but I don't see how to control them there, only enable or disable them.

If I want to use NoScript (for example) in a Private Browsing window, how do I set Firefox up to do that? -- jclarkw

Currently on Firefox Version 85.0 (64-bit) using with Windows 10 Pro

Until recently (before Firefox updated versions) my cookies, cache and history, were automatically deleted on exit from Firefox with no problem. Now I can not delete them for some reason. Even when I try manually to "Clear Data" and also manually clear all History (all sub-menus checked to be cleared). When I restart and open an online newsletter, normally I have to sign in. I don NOT have passwords checked to be saved in FF options and never did. But now with the new version it just auto signs me into that website. I do NOT want my passwords saved/remembered, nor any of my other info, etc! It is really annoying and not secure if FF is now saving information we don't want it to! What is going on here? How do I resolve and get back the way I had it before the update? Please advise. Thanks in advance!

NOTE: I don't want to start from scratch by clearing out Firefox totally or messing with my profile. I have too much customization to start over from scratch. (That would be like asking somebody to reinstall Windows entirely when something minor goes haywire!)

Hello,

For some reason I cannot view saved log ins. When I try it asks for my windows credentials. I try logging in and it says that they do not work. I verify the log in is correct by logging into my Microsoft account, and into the PC itself with the same log in information. This makes it rather difficult to log on on something like my phone when I cannot see the generated passwords.

Thanks,

Aaron Piper

Does Private Browser save session data across Browser windows?

I've been struggling today with accessing two systems on my work laptop. As I'm an administrator on both sites, I've been purposely using "private mode" browser sessions in Firefox (my default and fav) but I was surprised to see that the private mode appears to be "save" some of the session data from those systems - at least temporarily until I close all of those windows entirely?

I log in to one of those corporate sites with a username + password, then attempt to login to the other one in a separate tab, but it immediately attempts to auto-login me in with the credentials from the first site (which doesn't work as both sites require a different username/password for security reasons). I tried several combinations: I used separate private browser windows (instead of tabs) and the same thing happens. It's like it shares data across the instances? I also tried the reverse - logging into the 2nd system first on a fresh instance, then login to the first, and the same thing happens with a similar "invalid login" error.

Maybe its something weird about the auth on our network, like SSO? ...

I have noticed similar though where I've had other, multiple private browser sessions open on my personal laptop and even though I've closed one of them, activity from the site I closed has continued to happen in the background because the other private windows remained open ...

I currently need to use a site which loads up my browser with all sorts of tracking cookies. How do I disable cookies for just this site, and any other sites I may run into later where I'd like this behavior?

I don't want to disable cookies on every site, as that breaks a lot of things. I want to target the specific sites that should not be allowed.

Hello,

I am quite frustrated. I have been working on solving two issues for a very long time. My brain is a little disabled but I still have to solve all problems myself. Please help me if you can.  The issues are:

1. with settings on password remembrance. I get logged out of many websites that claim that everything is right with their set up. On some websites I am not getting logged out.

 The settings I have tried in Firefox (latest version both on Windows 10 and on Android 9) has been "never clear cookies" , "clear cookies after each session" with exceptions for all the current websites.  I have allowed everything.  If this issue derives from the websites setup they would have had many more complains than mine. That´s why I have to turn to Mozilla. 

2. I run Firefox on windows 10 and on Android. Isn´t the browser meant to sync on website content like the above mentioned ? Logins and other data left on each websites from previous login ?

If I get help from the forum I will definitely donate to Mozilla. /Gechen
