I use Mozilla Firefox browser on my work laptop, and have it Sync'd to my iphone. Yesterday my sister opened Firefox, logged me out, and logged herself in, to access some things. But instead of closing my profile (bookmarks, saved PWs, etc.) it MERGED hers with mine. Now, on our laptops and phones, we see each others bookmarks, saved PWs, etc. How can I unmerge them? Pls help!

This SAME topic has been asked in MANY of the Threads - And a Moderator has locked EACH of the threads it seems - But NO ONE seems to be able to tell us - WHY the "''''Ask whether to open or save files''''" does not work anymore.

I had to reinstall Windows 11 and all my files and programs a few weeks ago - and since then - I found the above does NOT work anymore. Now, I have a boat-load full of documents in a Downloads folder - when ALL I wanted to do is open and look at the various files that I received - BUT NOT save them.

I tried to leave or make the """"""Save files to"""" field BLANK - which I thought would be a great solution as Then the "ASK" prompt would HAVE TO ASK you where you want to save or NOT save the file - but it won't allow you to do that either!

I've attached screen grabs - lest you think I do not know how to manage the Applications settings.

WHAT HAPPENED - Why doesn't - "''''Ask whether to open or save files''''" work anymore?

I recently migrated my Firefox profile from a windows 10 to a windows 11 computer. Everything seems to be working fine except saved payment methods.

My cc info appears when I go to type in card information on a website, but when I click on it and press enter or tab, it disappears. My saved payment methods in settings appears empty, and the add button doesn't do anything.

What can I do to fix this?

Hi, firstly, I am not very technical so I will describe my issue as simply as I can. When I open my Application Menu (3 horizontal bars on the top right hand side of my screen, underneath the X) and click on the Bookmarks heading, there is a heading showing as Recent Bookmarks. This then lists bookmarks that I have used. As I do not want this list. How do I stop/get rid of this "Recent Bookmarks" heading &/or list. Thank you to anyone who can help (without a lot of jargon/computer speak).

For about a couple of weeks, there has been a lot of delay between what I type and when it actually appears. It's maddening! I have not changed any of my Firefox settings. I did a 'refresh' about an hour ago. I am not seeing any network activity that I cannot recognize. I d/l'd 'Malwarebytes' and ran it..."no threats". MS Defender has always been on & protecting me. I have never had this situation occur before and am hoping for some help (5 to 10 seconds to wait for what you've keyed in is not fun).

I'm not sure why I get this message: "This site isn't currently available in the EU", but only on my Windows 11 laptop. I don't get the message on my cell phone; instead it goes right to the website. They both use Mozilla/Firefox. here's an example: "https://mail.yahoo.com/d/folders/1/messages/AN6WxktugKP1Zo6E-gXQSGxZLg4." Connection button shows that the site is secure. I have not cleared the cookies. When I select any one of the subjects in the email which are usually local news items I get this response: "This site isn't currently available in the EU." Here's an example of one of the items: "https://www.audacy.com/wwjnewsradio/news/local/michigan-man-guilty-of-making-threat-of-msu-stage-act-2?utm_source=WWJ-AM&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WWJ-AM%20NEWSLETTER&utm_content=WWJ%20Daily%20Recurring%20Newsletter&mi_u=1655089&mi_ecmp=WWJ%20Daily%20Recurring%20Newsletter."

The problem is I'm not in the EU and it appears that I might be dealing with a tracker but when I scan the computer there is no evidence of that. Is there something else that might be going on?

My office computer gets secure connection failed which is my main computer but I'm able to logon with my laptop computer without any issues.

Hi everyone,

Firefox started becoming extremly slow on certain websites, which I have bookmarked. It goes through periods of that. One it was because of a plug in, other times I would think it was a virus of my internet provider slowing it down. But it became really slow this week, and I started noticing what it says on bottom of left screen when it's loading.

I kept seeing "contacting googleadmanager.com, read.tags.tigcdn.com, contacting highfalutinhoney.com." There were other various ones that have started read.tags, but those were the main ones I thought it was a virus, and kept doing virus scans with Norton, Malwarebytes, and making sure all software and computer, was updated. The only thing that helped was deleting profile in the profile folder on Mozilla and deleting it on my computer, and redoing all settings, with nothing imported.

It hasn't been slow in awhile. The only thing I can think of is I went on google maps, and saved a bookmark of a place on Firefox, and the offending website that was really slow was also bookmarked. Is it possible because I added a google bookmark, it installed on my brower tracking cookies? I set to have the settings to strict for my browser, never remember history, and use duckduckgo for search, except when I went on google maps this week on a private tab and then bookmarked a page from google.

If anyone knows how this happens, I would really appreciate it :} I don't know much about the technical stuff for computers. I'm just a basic user.

Thank you

My PC uses Windowss 11 and I'm on Mozilla. My security programs are Malwarebytes Premium, Windows Defender.Security, and Acronis. There is an Extension called, 'Protect My Choices'. Love It! I have it on all my Browsers. It keeps alot of junk off from my PC. In all my other Browsers, in the Extension details it states "Automatically allow access on the following sites:" I just don't move the button over to on, and the Extension keeps all that junk off from my PC. In Firefox, the above statment and the botton is absent, and all that junk is allowed onto Firefox (Yikes!). I went through Mozilla's Help, Troubleshotting, and Search. I haven't been able to find any clue as to how I can get this Extension to work in Firefox. Any assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so for your time and consideraton of my sad saga
