When working in Ancestry.com I am having a problem when I try to upload pictures. I get a banner across the top saying my Local Storage is disabled. I have deleted history and about everything it has said to try but to no avail. This just started about 2-3 weeks ago. Before that it has always worked correctly. Not sure it this was due to Microsoft 11 loaded, newer version of Firefox or something. It is causing me to have to go to Google Chrome which has other issues with screen prints which work much better in Firefox. How can his be fixed.

I'm curious to know if it's normal for one browser to know what's being viewed in different browser. Specifically, Microsoft's Edge seems to know what I'm viewing on Firefox. I have Firefox privacy set at "strict" and use Duck Duck Go as my search engine with Windows 10 OS. Yet, without fail, If I later open the Edge browser it will show me relevant ads for whatever I was viewing on Firefox. As I am not a tech, but just a user, I just want to know if this is as it's suppose to be. I've used Chrome and Firefox for years and cannot recall this happening between them.

To change my email in the account I arrive to the step when a confirmation code should be send , but I never receive the email with the code. If I try to delete my account, again, a confirmation code is required, but the email with this code does not arrive. It may be that the email provider (T-Online) is blocking the email from Mozilla? , I have no possibility to specify safe sites with such an email system, and I cannot change the email. In conclusion , I am stuck. Is it possible to write to a support site of Mozilla to get the email modified or the account deleted by them

Some time ago (a few years), when Firefox stopped using multiple add-ons for a very customized user experience, I switched to using Sea Monkey, where, like with the very old Firefox, I loved using the NoScript add-on. But now SM seems to have dropped so far behind in development, many website would not work. So now I've had to come back to the mainstream Firefox.

But without NoScript, I can't figure out how to handle specific scripts. Isn't there some way to do that with version 96.0?

I see in the settings where it looks like I can block pretty much everything that comes along. In that case, I might need to allow specific scripts for some sites. Or conversely, I could allow most scripts, but then I can't find any way to block only certain specific scripts.

Is there some way to handle specific scripts with versison 96.0? If it matters, I'm still using Windows 7.

Thank you very much.

in an effort to make my onlione presence most secure, i set my security and privacy settings to the maximum i could. this included the permanent privacy mode, but i was careful to set all my most commonly used websites to állow'in order to not be forced to go through hell anytime i needed to login. i quickly found that having that állow'list made no difference and i still had to go through burning hoops to log in every time so i reverted my settings back to how they used to be. well, not i am stuck in a situation where i still havew to go through multiple 2nd and 3rd and 4th tier security protocols for every website, none of my settings are being saved at all.

this has turned things into a real nightmare when what was expected was for the everyday sites i access would not force me to go through that, sites i access daily and trust. sort of the entire point of the állow'list. but it doesn't work at all, and going back to previous settings has essentially locked me into that world where i am endlessly having to login, approve my computer, my browser, verify my login [up to 4x each login on some sites!] and just want this to end.

so how do i get firefox to just go back to how the settings were before when just plain setting them to how they were before doesn't do it???

Hello,

I asked the browser to accept an expired site certificate; it turns out, though, that the original owner of the site no longer uses that domain :{(

Fortunately, the phishing form was too obvious :{)

How do I tell the browser that I really don't want to use that site anymore?

I realize, this is an old issue and has been around for years, but please for the love of god, make the master password popup less frustrating. Every single site with a login field triggers the popup. It really needs a setting, where you can browse the web and it never shows a popup, unless you click a button to actually login (could be next to the URL field)

Is there any known workaround, apart from always logging in?

Hi everyone,

I am running Firefox 91.5 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.5 and just noticed that all my addons have been disabled and can't re-enable them.

Some of them are quite common modules such as Disconnect or Privacy Badger, so wondering what this may be.

There is a similar post on this forum dating back to 2019 and it mentioned a fix on Firefox was to be developped.

Anyone experiencing the same issue at the moment.?

Please see attached screenshot.

Kind regards,

Alex

FIrefox prompts to save username and passwords on sites or to update them when changed. However, if I select "Never ask" when the prompt shows up, it will add the site to the password exceptions list in Options. But when the browser is shut down and opened in a new session, that list is cleared.

I manually saved two banking sites to the exceptions list, then closed and restarted Firefox and found NO entries in the Exceptions list.

This is the same question asked by 'Gramps' 12/19/17 BUT this is version 91.6.0esr. Also, "Clear History" is OFF, and there is no advanced system care running.

There is another question; "Exceptions list for "Remember logins for sites" clears on exit." #1171666. This mentions deleting file [permissions.sqlite]. What else is stored in this file that I will have to re-create if I delete it?

Thanks

I wanted to pay a bill and got this:

Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to mysubarumotorsfinance.com. Peer’s Certificate has been revoked. Error code: SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

Sure!!, let me call them and tell them to fix their certificate! Luckily I have Chrome, and I used Chrome with no problem to pay my damn bill!

In addition to this stupidity, every single time I log onto a website I have to turn off the tracking shield because if I don't, the website does not work. I disabled this in settings, but it just comes right back again. I don't care about a site on which I have to pay a bill tracking me or not. Firefox is becoming so unusable, I may as well just use Chrome from now on. What the hell happened to the browser I have been using for almost two decades???

Is there some issues with FireFox running on Apple's original M1 processor?

Regardless of selecting an email or ID, then hitting "Shift + Delete" the login field will continue to not only hold the login used on the site previously, but also other IDs.

When logging into mozilla.org for support, my email address didn't appear, however my business email did. I've never entered my business email address on Mozilla's website.
