Hi,

I use Firefox Developer Edition as my default testing browser. I have it set up to clear the cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. For my normal browsing I use regular Firefox (currently version 120.0). I was looking through the settings on 121.0 beta Firefox Beta November 21, 2023 and saw it has the very useful Cookie Banner Blocker: When a site asks if they can use cookies in private browsing mode, Firefox Developer Edition automatically refuses for you. Only on supported sites.

According to the https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cookie-banner-reduction?as=u&utm_source=inproduct this was introduced in Firefox version 120. However I do not see it in my regular Firefox 120.0. Both browsers say that "Your browser is being managed by your organization." I can change the proxy settings in regular Firefox 120, but not in Firefox Developer beta 121. Although both have the same sentinelone 2023.1.4.650 extension set.

When attempting to update my Mozilla account from my Firefox settings, I was unable to add my secondary email address because of an error message stating that the secondary email account exists...

Repeating this action in case of a bug resulted in being locked out of that particular window.

I have no idea what that error message means, nor how to circumnavigate it. Please help!

Thanks, MGB

Why is Firefox suddenly not remembering any of my logins or passwords?

Why is Firefox suddenly not remembering any of my logins or passwords? When I go into Preferences > Security, the box to "remember logins and passwords for websites" is checked. When I click on saved passwords they all are there. The do you want to save box is there if I have changed a login, or added a new web site. I am not in private browsing mode. The problem seems to happen every time I install the latest Firefox update, or Windows 10 Pro updates. Some of my apps want to know if I am using a new device.

Firefox forgets my data (Cookies?)

Hi, I am using Firefox vsn 120 for Linux Mint. I believe that I have the privacy and security set with the default settings.

However, Firefox seems to forget the information stored by websites, so that can't simply login.

Each. And. Every. Time. I have to go through the process of re-introducing myself to the security of the website provider who insists on sending me emails, SMS messages, etc. with codes to confirm who I am.

This applies, every time I use a site that requires a login (bank, BBC, Fidelity, eBay, Facebook....).

Once I have been approved on a site, then my login seems to work for a few days, up to a week and then off we go again with a new set of security codes. My settings do not delete cookies, and firefox is never closed, except if the PC needs a reboot, which is rare.

I would appreciate any help in settings that would allow me to use Firefox normally without having to enter security codes. Cheers, Mark

Getting PC Can't Connect Error While Using - Only On My Desktop PC, Not W/Laptop or Mobile Devices

After restarting my computer last week, I suddenly couldn't reach ANY websites on my computer. I tried changing security settings. I tried deleting Firefox and reinstalling it. Still, to no avail.

I don't have any problem reaching websites via Firefox on my laptop or my mobile devices. I also have no issues with using Google Chrome or Bing.

For some reason, though, I'm suddenly having the same connectivity issue using Zoom, citing Firewall and Proxy issues (I'm a single, home user). I tried turning my security program off, and that didn't help. I also did a scan using the security software and it could find no malware.

I have tried restarting the computer, and powering off and restarting the router. No help.

I'm not sure why I'm suddenly getting this issue with my desktop. I have Dell ProSupport, and while they're trying, they haven't been able to nail anything down.

Any ideas why this would suddenly happen, and only to Firefox? (and, for some reason, the Zoom connectivity?)

Later version refuses to connect to my modem, and goes into security web mode. This modem uses HTTP/HTTPS for access, i.e., connects directly it's IP address, then the user enters a username and password. At that point, the the modem switches to HTTPS for control.

With this recent update, there is NO WAY to access the modem for any work, or upgrade the HTTPS certificate on the modem. This is a BUG.

What should happen is that if the web site will accept a HTTP connection, Firefox should NOT refuse connection or test for security issues UNTIL the user or the device switches to HTTPS.

As an aside, I've used Firefox on this Zywall modem for years until recently.

Recently Twitch and WarGaming, as well as other advertisers, collaborated on "Twitch drops" Somehow, Twitch is able to determine which tab is on top and being viewed by visitors to the website. It's one thing for Twitch to know I'm visiting the website, and quite another for them to determine if in fact the tab I have open is front and center. Seems to me this is a privacy issue that needs to be addressed.? (I have not yet determined if this Twitch snooping is working in private tabs yet, but I soon will)

My website has a branch that is protected with username and password. At the prompt I enter those, exit Firefox and start Firefox again. When I go to the branch and this time I do not get the username and password prompt and have free access. However, when I do shift-refresh the prompt shows. Apparently Firefox does save something that it shouldn't. Is it a BUG???
