I recently googled a product and clicked on a link to their site (not an ad result). Shortly after I got an email from the company saying "thanks for checking us out." I never filled in any form with my email address. Is Firefox allowing Google to send my email address to the company so they can send marketing emails? I have Enhanced Tracking Protection on.

Hi All, I am using firefox on my work laptop and it was working fine, until today that it was updated to the new version: 94.0.2 (64-bit)

I noticed that the new version was very fast, so I decided to switch from Chrome to Firefox. I imported all my logins and bookmarks, but when I go to a website, in the part where I should enter my login information, the drop-down menu does not show up, even though I have several saves usernames and passwords! I tried entering my logins manually into the password manager, but they still do not show up. The previous saved logins show up and work fine. But the new ones don't. Can you help me solve this issue? the image shows what I mean. The older login that was saved before the new update shows, but none of the other 4 logins that I imported or manually entered into the password manager show up.

Hello,

I want to know one thing, you have added a feature that allows Firefox to generate a random strong password. That randomly generated 'strong' password has everything except a special character. How can you say the password is secure if there is no special character in that. Almost 95% of the websites don't accept a password without a special character. May be give an option in the settings to customize the suggested password like character types and character length. That would be just perfect.

Thanks

I cancelled my LinkedIn account about 5 years ago and haven't used it since then. I am therefore puzzled as to why it keeps showing up as having had a "data breach" and why this matters at all?! There was also some "data breach" in regard to a website for Avatars?! I have never heard of this website and can't imagine why I would ever use it! Why did this show up as a breach in my account?!

In regard to the specific accounts which have had a data breach, I have either cancelled them, deleted them, or have no memory of ever having used them in the first place. I have also changed my passwords for all of my email accounts, many times over the past 5 years, so again, I have no idea how information from a cancelled account could be of use to anyone. Can someone explain this to me?! Thank you!

Until recently I was prompted to load the Trend Micro Toolbar when I opened Firefox but then got an error message. I no longer get that prompt and cannot find the Trend Micro Toolbar when I search for the extension. I used to use Mozilla all the time but without the extension I am reluctant to use it now for banking or other secure transactions. There was some information on your site that you were working on the issue some time ago but it does not seem to have been resolved yet. Your assistance appreciated Thanks Ana

MacOS 12.0.1, Firefox version 95.0

I have a proxy setup for work in the wireless config settings, and when I am not on the VPN firefox will not load any pages when the proxy setting is set to use system proxy. Edge works fine, Safari works fine, Chrome works fine. I have to change the setting to not use any proxy for firefox to work at all.

When I am on the VPN it will work with the config set to use system proxy - but its the only browser that wont work when not on the VPN.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Since last Update - I have to Sign Out/Back in before any of my saved Logins are populated

If I close the browser the next time I log in Firefox will NEVER populate and saved logins. They are there - I can see them.

If I sign out/in they magically auto-populate until I close the browser again.

Never had this issue EVER before Wednesday 12/15

I do have multiple devices that sync and I see sync is working, but it happens on all devices since Wednesday. Very frustrating - I'm starting to look at other alternatives.

This happens for EVERY website I visit until I sign out/in.

To whomever it may concern,

Good evening. I have a problem with the "autofill" function while using Firefox for Windows. I have disabled the autofill function - I made doubly sure the box was not checked - but I still see autofill options saved on my browser, which concerns me. Must I check the box option that says "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" to stop this from happening? Why is it still saving autofill options?

Any help with this issue would be wonderful. Thank you for your time and expertise in advance.

Hi. I have mozilla firefox 95.0.2 on my personal dell laptot. No organization administrating. I cant copy certificates to a file for unknown reasons. I had password master protection on store I had read (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1175296) it could be a issue about uphold authority who creates these certificates, that i have not certificates for those authorities installed. (your internal signing certificate doesn't chain up to a trusted root, then naturally Firefox gives that UNKNOWN ISSUER error) Setting security.enterprise_roots.enabled is true but i cant change it. dont know why. But, i check and i have installed authority certificates and it wont expired until 2029 So i´m wondering if it would be an issue about master password, needed to obtain certificates and copy it I put master password to navigate so it wont be needed again but maybe firefox need to access certificates in order to copy it again and it is not asking me to provide it. Please, help. Thanks in advance.

Recently I setup an account to purchase a lottery ticket on Pennsylvania iLottery website in Pennsylvania. You purchase a voucher at a lottery ticket kiosk, then come home and enter the 16 digit code after the account is setup and you get the credit from the voucher into your account. Then you choose which game to play, the price of each play varies and the amount is deducted from your balance. After setting it up, installing the voucher numbers, then verifying I had the money into the account, I proceeded to play. All went well until I pressed the buy button. A statement came back that said this." Sorry, your device isn't supported on our Website (GE1101). I called the support at PaIlottery.com they were no help. I decided to work it out myself. I dug into the Mozilla-Firefox "edit", Settings menu. Custom. Disable the blocking on sites. I gave permission for the lottery site to track me. disabled the tracker block at the URL bar. Nothing helps. I need more training!!!!

What is the solution, if any?

Hi, Mozilla Team

I have been using both Firefox and Chrome for years, and I might say 70% of time is Firefox. There is only one thing (so far) that make me more comfortable using Chrome is its recall of "Form Input History". ( I am not a IT person, the terms I use below might not be accurate)

FF does remember form history, but limited to normal form (e.g. login page on most websites), but it is not able to remember or recall many Form input field history (e.g. Google Form). I am not sure if it is called "Ajax Form" or not. But many website forms are more like Google Form, which FF just couldn't recall the form history contents/input, and I have to manually type for the repeated form filling. Our company is using Google Form to record visitors info together with some staff particulars and locations info. The staff particulars and location info are very much repeated to a small group of staffs located at a specific location. However, use of drop-down list or checkbox is also not practical to our situation, as there could be hundreds of staffs using this form in many various locations. Hence, my team have to use Chrome, as it could remember the input history for staff and location particulars. (I am not asking for Auto-Filling, but selection of input history).

The relevant questions i search online / forum are all related to Auto-filling and Form History. Yes, my FF setting is correct, FF does remember a very very small handful of webpage, but majority not. Understand, it could be security concern (you may set disabled by default), but it would still be our option to use (if it is available). Thanks, and Happy New Year 2022 !
