When I go to Firefox help under Privacy there is a line at the top saying my browser is being managed by my organization. I DO NOT HAVE AN ORGANIZATION CONNECTED TO THIS COMPUTER!

The link seems to go to Webroot which I do have - but that makes no sense.

I have this issue on several normal commercial sites. Access denied, you don't have permission...

Latest FF release 79.0. Not using VPN, but still happens with VPN/any server. Spectrum.com, Lowes.com to name a couple. The sites work with other browsers, but I simply don't trust any of them. Sometimes, Spectrum.com will load with scripts blocked, but as soon as I temp allow in noscript, the site breaks. I regularly clean out temp files, cookies, etc with a cleaner as well as not saving anything on exit. Caches and such should be sparkling clean.

Ideas? I really hate to purchase things using another browser, but this has persisted for months.

I am using containers, and have made every setting I can think of to keep my log-ins private. Instead, every time I go to ProtonMail I get shown every email login I have used lately, including a gmail login I only use in a gmail container! ProtonMail advise they do not store this data.

The passwords are not stored, thank goodness.

HOW is Firefox saving it? WHERE? This is actually the creepy and intrusive tracking I came to Firefox to get away from - now they seem more like the perpetrator and I have to go right out of my way to protect myself from Firefox itself. Now I guess gmail knows all my protonmail logins.

Any solutions? I hope my tone is not too exasperated, but if there was another browser option out there right now I'd be gone in minutes.

Thank you!

Every couple of months I will start up my computer and find all my settings have changed and my Firefox add-ons are gone. I was not able to discern why but I made some changes in the configuration and got the text size back to what I wanted. This time it happened none of those configurations changed but I still had changed text size. I refreshed Firefox and found my add-ons immediately were reinstalled even though they were shown to be working when I checked my browser settings. One of the add-ons was Yahoo Mail ad blocker. I have used Yahoo Mail for years. Recently they have tried to make changes in my mail display to where I am being forced to go ad-free and upgrade to a mail subscription. After this most recent challenge to my computer setting, I am beginning to think Yahoo is disabling the Yahoo Ad Mail Blocker to get me to go to their subscription. Either that or Microsoft is challenging me to use their browser. It is like their is a war going on to win the internet. I miss the old Internet. Is there anything that can be done so my settings don't get hijacked?

Hello,

I got the following problem. When I shutdown my PC and let's say have 20+ Tabs open from a study session, after booting again all these tabs are opened when I stat firefox.

In many cases this may be the intended behavior, but I really do not like it. I would like that my Firefox behaves in the following manor:

At any given time, when I open my browser for the first time my default setting is shown. 

At any given time, when I open my browser, no older tabs from a session before should be opened

Thank for help in advance I am aware that this might be the stupidest question ever and I have to jump through hoops to make it happen.

Firefox only restored about half of my restored session

I had 3 windows with lots of tabs open and firefox only restored half of them. It's taking me a lot of time to go through history and finding the ones I lost and restoring them. I closed all firefox windows on exiting, verifying for each one to close the tabs, and yet this still happened when I restarted. I noticed afterwards that under options, under general, restore session was unclicked?? I have no recollection of doing that or any reason I would. I also saw that the sub box to warn me when closing tabs was also unclicked. Again, I would never unclick it and have no recollection or reason to have been fiddling with all that.

The only other thing is when first rebooting as I was going to history to restore sessions a Norton tab (I have Norton 360) popped up. I restored history and half of my stuff was gone. Does anyone have any idea of what's going on here?

I was transferring my data from an older version of Firefox to the new version and always have enabled Firefox sync.

While setting up the new browser, I uninstalled an extension that had my settings from the new browser and it was automatically uninstalled from the older browser too.

Since I use Firefox sync, I want to know if it's possible to restore a restore the extension data from a specific time (before I deleted it). Trying to sync only restores it after the extension was deleted.

Firefox extensions stopped working for me tonight. If I click on any in the toolbar the little triangle appears but not the extension's actual menu. And the browser is hanging, not loading anything.

Also there is a huge cpu spike for the WebExtensions process. If I kill it, suddenly the web pages that were hanging start to load.

I'm using Firefox 79.0 on Ubuntu.
