In the past week or two, I find I am suddenly being logged out of every website I regularly use, including but not limited to my email, social media accounts, and shopping sites. I have all my settings set to keep me logged in, both in Firefox and on those individual sites. At first I thought the computer had updated over night, but it's happening almost every day now. Most annoying is that several of those sites require 2 or 3 steps to log back in, and it takes as much as ten minutes every day just to be able to get to everything I want to do. I know-the horror. It's an inconvenience, I understand that.

I thought the issue was with Firefox set to clear my history upon closing, so I unchecked that box, but it didn't help. I don't know if it could be an issue with one of my extensions, but I've had all of them for over a year without trouble; this has just started in the last week or so, and in that time I have not personally changed any settings in my browser. Any help you can provide would be appreciated. Thank you.

Yahoo / AT&T Email - why does Firefox appear to send too many log-in attempts to AT&T Yahoo email? This happens on my Windows 10 computer, my wife's computer and also on two computers belonging to relatives in a different state. Email works OK for a few days and then all the sudden when we try to log in, AT&T comes back and tells you you're either locked out (again) or you (again) have to change your password because of too many log-in try's. This is only on PC's running Firefox. Cell phones and iPad's all work great and never have the email log-in issue, which leads me to believe it's a Firefox problem.

I'm moving from Brave to Firefox Developer, and trying to import all data from Brave... especially passwords.

When I import from Safari, Chrome, MS Edge I get a Mac dialogue box asking for my Mac password, and then all the data is imported correctly.

When I try the same with Brave, there is no Mac dialogue box, and the import process just says it was successful - but no passwords are imported at all.

I didn't find any settings in Brave saying that I had to allow password export or anything like that.

Is this a bug? and is there a workaround? (because I really don't want to have to input all those passwords for so many sites since moving to Brave!)

The locale in https://accounts.firefox.com/settings has been set to spanish (not by me!!!), and it seems impossible to change it to english - it is becoming quite annoying.

FYI, all my locale settings on browsers / e-mail clients / computers / etc are - since ages - set to English. I have never set the language to spanish.

So the question is: how can the locale be corrected???

Good day,

Started playing with the 'Container Tabs' add-on in Firefox. I noticed that there are instances that when a website opens up in Firefox, it may open up in a 'general' tab that has not been assigned a container. Let's say that this website installs cookies, will they be carried on into the new container when right clicking the tab to choose 'Open in New Container Tab'?

My concern is that one would otherwise create a pool of cookies that are not carried along into the new container(s), and that are potentially accessible by cross-site tracking cookies that made or make their way into that same pool.

Looking forward to insights!

I have no trouble logging into my NAS except the address is only http, However, when I log into my NAS I get a message telling me the website I am going to is unsecure and I should go to a private secure website. However, when I click on the private option I get the following code... “SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG” .

I want to make my NAS IP address https rather than http as I was hacked last year and lost all my music files (over 200 cd's) from my NAS. It has taken me 5 months to re-copy all my music onto my NAS so as you can appreciate I am very warey about not having a secure https site address.


Can anyone please help?

Many thanks

How can I close a tab when the site puts up a dialogue?

My wife, without knowing how, opened a tab in Firefox on her iPhone with a URL starting vpn-guard.org/version, and this tab put up a dialog asking her to upgrade vpn-guard with OK being the only option; other controls such as the menu, back arrow, tab list did not respond.

Since she does not use a VPN and I could find very little information about the domain, it seemed highly suspect. We therefore wanted to close this tab, but since the other controls were inactive this seemed impossible. We tried closing and restarting Firefox, and restarting the iPhone, neither of which helped. In the end all I could think of was to re-install Firefox, which of course did work.

Could we have done this better?

Hi there,

for one of our Customers (German Goverment Provider of IT-Solutions) we need to permanently disable the Feature "Firefox Suggest" because we suspect, that it could be sending "unwanted" data traffic.

We understand, that this feature is currently only available in the US. But in case it will be rolled out to Europe as well, we would like to ensure that it is disabled in advance.

We already disabled the basic "search suggestions" via GPO but we can not be sure if this has an effect on the new "firefox suggest" feature.

Is there a possible configuration via GPO to disable it?

Thank you in advance, Wolfgang

I would like to have privacy.resistFingerprinting set to true, and leave it that way. I don't want to keep changing it.

Unfortunately, when I do that lately, walmart.com doesn't work right. It keeps going to the message "Sorry... We’re having technical issues, but we’ll be back in a flash."

Using the setting, at the shield icon on the address bar, to turn enhanced tracking protection off for the site does not fix the issue.

What would fix it?

Recently ... ... ... about the same time I got a message concerning Thunderbird that certain systems will --- as of Oct 5 --- not allow e-mail transfers between the TB e-mail client and their systems due to TB [supposedly] using the older "TLS 1.0 and 1.1" encryption protocols, I got this message when I logged on to my primary e-mail server "MAIL.COM", so to check my e-mail and spam filters on their system, using Firefox 104.0.2:


This is what I get when I first log on:

Your browser is not supported.

We generally support the following browsers: Google Chrome, the latest version of Safari, Internet Explorer 11 and later, Firefox from version 33, Opera from version 10. To fully utilize the functionalities of your mail.com mailbox, we recommend using the latest version of your browser. Download Browser for free

The mail.com mailbox is also available with limited functionality.

(The browser they offer shows only for Google and Android Apps. Not for a "DESKTOP" version, to note.)


When I am logged in, I "AM" limited to "JUST" the e-mail section.

LUCKILY, I do not use their "CLOUD" or "CALENDAR" or other features, or I would "ALREADY" be blocked out of using such.

That FF does use 1.2 and 1.3, yet I "AM getting the above message and "AM" being restricted by "MAIL.COM" due to it claiming FF is NOT using the newer protocols, is there a fix to clear this.
