Good morning.

59.9.0 (32 bit) running on Vista Home premuim; yes I know it's old.

Path : Tools/Options/Sync

Presing the 'Sign in' button gives and error "Blocked by Content Security Policy - This page has a content security policy that prevents it from being loaded in this way.

Firefox prevented this page from loading in this way because the page has a content security policy that disallows it."

I was signed in to an account on old and invalid email address, I exited the account, with the Idea I'd be able to sign into the account my laptop and phone are linked on. The afforementioned message appeared.

Is it possible to circumvent the relevant security policy, and if so how?

I can be reached at Phil.Davis9@gmx.co.uk.

Kind regards,

Phil Davis.

I try to register different account for specific site and when I ask firefox to generate a NEW password it suggest already existed for existed account. So, we have a security vulnerability - different accounts have the same password and owner of site can understand that these accounts belong to one person.

I am locked out of my primary Mozilla account because the authentication code disappeared from my authentication app and I misplaced the recovery code. So as recommended, I tried to create a new account with another e-mail because of this mishap. However, that second e-mail address was apparently associated with the primary Mozilla account, because I receive a prompt that I must "sign in using the primary account" when I try to create the account using the second e-mail . Is there a way to disassociate the secondary e-mail from the primary account so I don't have to create a 3rd e-mail address for a new account?

Thank you

https://www.mozilla.org/eu/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/

I was told downloading from archive will not include the unique identifier, did the change by now? Asking this because i downloaded from both websites and both downloads tried to run setup.exe immediately after the installation. Asuming the setup.exe is the unique identifier obviously.

Dear community,

User in our engineering dept would like to use Fiefox Developer Edition to develop custom applications. As an IT I need to check application regarding security and support levels. I already check your support options – community and commercial so I would like to send you some questions regarding data protection. Please enter yes or no.

1 The application must not automatically transfer any company proprietary data to external networks (like the Internet): 2 The application should not open listener ports on the client: 3 The application must work with the existing security settings, e.g. no changes in GPO-setting or Edge/Chrome-settings (e.g. they must work without changing ActiveX settings): 4 The application must not reduce the security level of the computer system (e.g. the application must not exchange DLL-s or other files with lower and unpatched versions): 5 The application must work without admin privileges:

I recently updated to 107.0 (64-bit) by the usual Linux update. On Nov 26 2022 I used Google Translate. I just discovered these directories: 2022-11-26 22:07:20 /media/sf_G_DRIVE/f_files 2022-11-26 21:30:46 /media/sf_G_DRIVE/g_files The files in them are all rwxrwx--- I looked at the images and recognized the sources as being from the Russian Federation archive that I visited at those times via automatic Russian-English translation by Google Translate.

Does anyone have an explanation how these directories and files were created?

Thanks -- Mark.

Hi, I planned to block my users from installing extensions/add-ons. I found an article that might be the answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1308646). I tried to create a simple policy (below), but somehow it does not work (I can still install any add-on/extension). What is wrong with my script? I'm using Firefox ESR 78.11.0 (64-bit) by the way.

My "policies.json" looks like this:

{

"policies": {
  "ExtensionSettings": {
    "*": {
      "blocked_install_message": "Blocked!",
      "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/"],
      "installation_mode": "blocked"
    }
  }
}

Hello,

I cannot save my credit card number in Firefox, in Settings I don't even have the option to save them and the directions in the Firefox help don't work. #2 below there is no Forms and Autofill section in the settings let alone a credit card option.

  1. Click the menu button Button and select Settings.
  2. Click the Privacy & Security panel and scroll down to the Forms and Autofill section.
  3. Click the checkbox next to Autofill credit cards to turn it on, or uncheck the box to turn it off.

Any help to what's going on would be great.

Why i am suddenly getting Google log-in requests when I first open some websites in my Firefox browser on Mac OS Monterey? This was not happening before; it has started in the past couple of weeks and is extremely annoying. I do everything possible to stop providing Google with any information about me. One of the ways I thought I was doing that was by using the Firefox browser. But apparently not, since Google is able to infiltrate the browser and ask for a sign-in. It is not possible that Google is doing this without Firefox/Mozilla awareness of it.

Hi,

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox and I really prefer Firefox to be honest. One key thing that is missing for me is the ability to store credit card information which Chrome does. I saw that in the help that this feature is only supported in Canada, France, Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. I live in Israel. It is annoying to enter the full information each time (except CVV). Any plans to roll this out to the rest of the wold? This missing and very convenient feature might force me to go back to Chrome, which I would prefer not to do.

Thanks, Daniel

I am connected on my firefox account on both my computers but I am unable to connect the same account on firefox mobile. This is because I don't have access to the two-step authentication app that I do not remember even setting up. I have access to my email associated with the account and I have 10 digit recovery codes but none of them worked to recover my account.

So I am not locked out but I am unable to connect on new devices because I have no idea what app I used to set up 2 step authentication.
