Firefox extentions often ask for the authorization "Access your data for all websites". The description is "The extension can read the content of any webpage you visit as well as the data you enter there, e.g. B. Usernames and Passwords." Does this mean e.g. if I type in my bank account in a firefox browser window or a password for any other pge that this extension has access to this input/password??? Martin

Firefox just started asking for a "master password", which I never established. When I try to uncheck "Use Master Password" it asks me to enter my non-existent password. Yes, I know it's now called "primary password" but I don't have one of those either. Running Windows 10, no AVG installed.

I followed the instructions on the help site. Went to preferences. Went to Privacy and Security.

But when I try to scroll down to find the Delete Cache/Cookies (or whatever it says -- I don't know because I can't get to it!), my laptop scrolls down to Sync, the next category below Privacy & Security.

I turned off the Mac laptop and turned it back on. nothing. Help.

I'm sure I'm doing something incredibly stupid and it's a quick fix. If only there were a phone number to call . . .

When I go to Firefox help under Privacy there is a line at the top saying my browser is being managed by my organization. I DO NOT HAVE AN ORGANIZATION CONNECTED TO THIS COMPUTER!

The link seems to go to Webroot which I do have - but that makes no sense.

I am using containers, and have made every setting I can think of to keep my log-ins private. Instead, every time I go to ProtonMail I get shown every email login I have used lately, including a gmail login I only use in a gmail container! ProtonMail advise they do not store this data.

The passwords are not stored, thank goodness.

HOW is Firefox saving it? WHERE? This is actually the creepy and intrusive tracking I came to Firefox to get away from - now they seem more like the perpetrator and I have to go right out of my way to protect myself from Firefox itself. Now I guess gmail knows all my protonmail logins.

Any solutions? I hope my tone is not too exasperated, but if there was another browser option out there right now I'd be gone in minutes.

Thank you!

Cuando intento cargar el nuevo controlador del dispositivo "DNIeRemotePKCS11.dll" que se encuentra en Windows\System32, se cierra automáticamente el navegador y cuando lo reinicio no me aparece como dicho controlador.

He probado a reiniciar el equipo y nada...

Hi, I made a post about illegal dealings in Cyber Security.

Phillip responded, but I wasn't able to reply.

I was only asking on here because they made a profile and a user account in my name with my email.

All of them are IN THIS FORUM.

There is no other explanation.

I apologize, I don't really know anything about "computer forum" ettiquite.

I am a teacher, and that means I also know that I still need to learn.

Thanks.

Firefox keeps asking me for master password. It doesn't matter if I type my password in, it reappears over and over and over and over and over. It's become impossible to proceed because that popup prevents any further action on the browser. If I follow the instructions about unselecting "Use a master password", it asks me to ... enter the current password. I do, and the the OK button is grayed out and unavailable.

I'm not using either of the two virus programs you mention (ESET & some other). This is driving me batshit.

Please help resolve this. I'm using v. 79.0 (64-bit) on Windows 7.

Thank you.

Hi. I find that the 'enter password' pop-up comes up every two or three minutes. I'm not going to any password protected sites when this happens. I can just close the pop-up and continue on with what I'm doing. Whether I close the pop-up or actually enter the password, it still pops up again in a couple of minutes. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hello,

I am running FF 79 with W10 OS.

I do a lot of browsing related to ancestry. After several hours of working thing get very sluggish. What I then do is bookmark the tabs I am working on and then shutdown and restart FF. I have the history set to Remember History it and then clear it when FF closes.

I want FF to remember my sign-in information so that is why I have FF Remember History.

Is there a way to set up FF to remember the sign-in information but not remember the other browsing history so it 'fills up' my machine and slows it down? I really hope that there is but it is not obvious to me.

Thanks in advance for your help!
