Randomly after certain updates, the browser history gets randomly erased. The cookies are not deleted, so my sign in information is retained across my usual website (no issue here).

I wanted to report this as it happened twice around the past two weeks and it was inconvenient.

M2 MacBook Air running macOS Ventura. When I open a website which wants access to my camera I am asked if I want to allow this. I say "Allow", and the light next to the builtin webcam turns green, but I see nothing in the camera sub-window on the webpage which was granted access. No error message, just no camera video is shown by the webpage. In the menu bar is a camera icon which I can click on and confirms I have "Allowed" camera access. Setting / Privacy / Permissions / Autoplay is set to Block Audio. I have verified the camera works with other apps (Photo Booth). How can I diagnose this?

I have enabled privacy.resistFingerprinting in Firefox. I have also set my default zoom level to 133%

When I open a website (e.g. https://github.com/), it is zoomed to 133% as expected. If I then navigate to a page on that website (e.g. https://github.com/pricing) using the menu at the top of the page, then the new page is still zoomed to 133%. So far, so good.

However, on the new page (https://github.com/pricing) if I increase the zoom over 133%, then navigate back to the original page (https://github.com/) using the menu at the top of the page, then my zoom level is reset to 100%.

Is this expected behaviour? I would have thought that the zoom level would be reset to 133%, not 100%.

I found this, which seems somewhat related: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1609880

Local File Access

Dear Support Team,

I tried enabling localfilelinks in firefox and found this thread https://support.mozilla.org/fr/questions/1264779 which mentions creating a "user.js" file and adding this:

/ Create policy enabling http: or https: pages to link to file: user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "filelinks"); user_pref("capability.policy.filelinks.checkloaduri.enabled", "allAccess");

// Sites to which the policy applies (protocol://hostname protocol://hostname) user_pref("capability.policy.filelinks.sites", "http://example.com http://intranet");

then reloading firefox.

The fix worked and i was able to use local files in firefox. My Problem now is reverting localfileaccess to default (blocked).

i tried modifying the "user.js", deleting it, deleting and reinstalling firefox, cleaning the firefox install and creating a new profile. when i deleted user.js the enabled options vanished from "prefs.js" but local file access was still enabled. I also tried to edit the generated options in about:config but i cannot get it to revert to localfile access beeing locked and couldn't find any way to fix my problem.

Is there an easy way to relock this?

I'm using the current Firefox-ESR for Linux x86_64. Under Settings > Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage Exceptions, I blocked http:174.138.51.92 and https:174.138.51.92 several weeks ago. But Manage Data shows 10 cookies last used 45 minutes ago, and Remove Selection for these cookies fails (incidentally retaining the "last used" value), even when repeated multiple times as fast as I can mouse the select, then Remove Selection, then Save Changes then Manage Data .

How can I delete these cookies and site data? And why does it fail for this site and this site only? And how can I block them permanently, short of black-holing that site in /etc/hosts?

I have Canon EOS Utility installed in order to use a better camera when streaming. For some reason, when I'm using Google Meets, it will only let me use EOS Utility, ignoring the option of using my laptop's webcam. I've tried revoking permission, but when it asks me for permission again it won't show me my laptop's camera, only EOS Uitlity. I've tried disabling EOS Utility under Windows settings, but it's still the only camera that appears.

Hi,

I've been using Firefox on my laptop and my phones for years. I have a concern about my saved passwords in Firefox. If I need to lookup a password, I go settings, saved logins, put in my pin# and search and copy my password. Many times; however, when I get to the enter password on a website, Firefox comes up above my keypad and will let me just hit the down button to pick my credentials and automatically fills in my credentials without asking for my pin! It will also come up above keyboard to unlock Firefox? Please help me to clear this mess up. I want to have to put in a pin for my passwords. Anyone could get into my websites if my phone were taken, etc. I know I un-installed the app for passwords from Firefox when it was no longer available, sorry can't remember name of this app. I hope there is an easy way to make this happen. The only way I want to look for a password is with a pin #. It's a pain but I am OK with this.

Hello

I recently reinstalled firefox . After I logged into my firefox account it synced everything.

When I check my password manager it said my passwords for 2 sites were last "used" today. It's after midnight now so it would have been in the last 1 - 2 hours.

One of the websites had a 2nd factor authentication and nothing came to my phone. I am just wondering if this was a password manager glitch or something to worry about. The place I synced is my family computer and no one else would log onto those sites since they are work sites. And again it's midnight the other computer is off too.

I use OnlyKey usb key as FIDO2 MFA with most of my accounts. On Firefox 123.0 on MacOS Sonoma 14.2.1 (23C71) however, I get presented with multiple pop ups to touch my usb key but the key expects only one input/touch and it fails when I touch it the second time. This was not the workflow that I used to use before and it still works fine on MacOS ventura with Firefox + protonmail.
