When I would go into Bing, I would go into settings and change from "Moderate" to "Strict"; I would also uncheck "Search Suggestions" so suggestions don't fill in as I type. Then I would click "Save". Until recently, these settings held with no problem. Now after I click "Save" and go back to the main screen in Bing (or come back to Bing after being somewhere else), I'm back to "Moderate" and suggestions fill in as I type. Microsoft claims this is Firefox's issue and needs to be fixed at Firefox's end. Others are posting on Microsoft's answers forums, some also using Firefox, but not all. I love Firefox and I'm not changing to something else, so can you tell me how this Bing issue might be fixed? Thank you.

I have been trying for hours to get Firefox to allow me to use my webcam in the browser but I have uninstalled my browser, factory reset my laptop, removed my antivirus, gone in the website to allow, tried to find a suss certificate (which I don't want to go deleting anyway because I don't want to delete the wrong thing).

If someone can help me it will be appreciated. If you are going to go into registry keys etc please be clear in your instructions how to get there and fix it because whilst I'm not novice I have autism so my understanding might not be the same as an it person. Thanks

HELLO, Web page seems un-secure. Once open hamburg menu allows drop down and anyone can get my info. I ahd to also remove check mark for master password since annoying. Followed steps to remove and reset master PW but still keep asking every time logged on. References to my ESET that may be the cause. This was never a problem once registered few years back. So why cant I use Firefox to search without it having access to my private info. I should only need to access this when I need. So in the drop down hamburg menu if I go to Privacy and security that is where you should ask for PW or security question. So that you must have a PW to go into security would make sense to me. Other wise you are allowing anyone that may be using my computer and your web page to access my account, SO PLEASE DO NOT REPLY THAT the master password is the way to set this since it does not work properly. Even if I did use master this site is open to anyone. So it seems to be insecure and the web master should change the drop down to offer a PW when in the security and password tab, so that way it a second level pf protection. HOPE TO HEAR BACK and not just get a reply to see the Help section.Thanks Joseph Jan 26 ,2022

I have a login but didn't want to have sync issues with an old desktop so turned it off. Now I want to use it again to sync phone and new laptop. I have an email/password but it won't let me in and sets me on a long goose chase ending up with something I need to scan but that scan never shows up. I now have a new account, but can't add a secondary email because "account exists". I need my old account either revived (most preferred option, in that case I want the current account deleted) or, if that is too much to ask for, I want the old account deleted, and I can add a secondary email added to this account. Hope this is clear. Thanks for the help.

Possible security issue that won't allow me to import/save a digital certificate from my bank to my computer

I am using Firefox on a MacBook Air with OS 11.6.2 in order to use online banking in Portugal. I need and have generated a Digital Certificate at the bank, but when I try to import it so that the bank with recognize my device it gives me an error messages of " Unable to import this item" and Unknown format in input". I spoke to Apple support already and they suggested that I speak with you first to see if you would know why this problem is occurring. I have been using this computer in the past to access the accounts, but because my Digital Certificate has now expired I am required to generate a new one. I have attempted this 9 times in the last two days without success. I have also spoken with the bank in Portugal and they were not able to determine why I cannot import/save this certificate to my computer. Also the MacBook Air is from early 2014.

Why and how has Google Search been added to my browser opening page?

Has Google bought Mozilla? or have they donated enough for Mozilla to become a proxy Marketing and user acquisition arm of Google?

This happened on my Windows machine and have read the below too.

Brian Fagioli, reporting for BetaNews:

  • The developers of the Ubuntu-based operating system have agreed to accept an undisclosed amount of money from Mozilla in exchange for making significant changes to Linux Mint. This includes removal of modifications to Firefox and a big change for search. The devs share the upcoming changes to Firefox in Linux Mint 19 and higher.
  • The default start page no longer points to https://www.linuxmint.com/start/
  • The default search engines no longer include Linux Mint search partners (Yahoo, DuckDuckGo...) but Mozilla search partners (Google, Amazon, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Ebay...)
  • The default configuration switches from Mint defaults to Mozilla defaults.
  • Firefox no longer includes code changes or patches from Linux Mint, Debian or Ubuntu.

Can you let me know if the above is correct? Cheers.

I need ONLY MY address saved, not every one that comes through a form. Firefox saves everything it sees and tries to autopopulate everything I do with all of them. I know how to clean the address list, but I work in an address-heavy environment, and if I cleaned it every day autofill would still be useless.

Please, need a switch to STOP saving addresses willy-nilly, but still autofill with those few I have purposely saved.

Thanks, Bathsheba
