Everything started when I was fed up with ads on youtube. I purchased ad blocks. Then I had troubles with ad blocks. Ad blocks keeps breaking down. It will work for a few weeks then cracking. This went on for a long time until finally they said I had an old version, that I have to download the current version and they sent me a link. I tried it and then the link said I have to choose a paying option. I knew that's not a special link. They just sent me the same link for buying a new adblocks. I subscribed a 5 year program. And their service didn't even last a year.

In the mean time google keep flashing the ad of subscribing to youtube with a prime service.

But I started to download Firefox. I had a terrible time downloading it. I failed a couple of times. I finally managed to download and install Firefox. In the mean time the suspicion about google is messing around with my account started.

I haven't been happy with google for a long time, ever since they started to monitor people's comments on youtube. So after I deleted my videos and then I went into troubles of making comments on youtube. Finally I succeeded changing the code they gave me to a name I can remember. In the mean time they discontinued my account. All kind of things happening to me. I finally shrugged them off as a matter of miscommunication. But the flashing ads became a flashing warnings, something like you must choose google or discontinue adblocks. Then I started searching if there's a battle between google and adblocks. Finally firefox came through, and I was still troubled by annoying ads. Finally I got so mad, I just deleted adblocks completely out of my computer. And somehow I found firefox has an option I can turn on to block the ads. Ever since then I was enjoying watching youtube again. And google's warning became more frequent and I just close the window without choosing any options.

All through this period, I ran into troubles with my computer on and off. I keep telling myself it's because my grandson is playing with my computer. But I cannot help thinking things are really getting out of hand. I need some help.

My grandson finally getting used to using my daughter's computer. I really shouldn't have that much trouble any longer. This morning when the stock market started trading. My Robinhood page didn't update and showing the durrent stock prices. It went on for a while. I googled if the market is on holiday. It's not a holiday. Then I tried to refresh the page, and nothing works. I finally deleted the page and started a new page. Then it worked. This went on for about an hour. It seriously disturbed me a great deal. I chatted with Robinhood, and they said they didn't have any trouble with their internet. I know it's time to ask help from Firefox. It's google messing up with my account. Can anyone tell me otherwise? Please help.

Team, I have inadvertently been using 2 different Firefox accounts (for years now), each with one of my primary email addresses. I have a new phone and have been trying to Synchronize both of my laptops to it, thus discovering my problem.

It seems that I have created 2 different Firefox Accounts, each with 1 of my primary email accounts, but both of which have the same profile picture. (Which is why I didn't recognize this before.)

Is there a way to combine my 2 Firefox accounts but keep both of my primary email addresses (thus Merge or Combine, not remove 1)? This will allow both of my 2 laptops have the same configuration and keep all my saved passwords/logins/bookmarks/etc.

Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

For Reference, my devices are: 2x Windows 11 Laptops 1x Android Smartphone.

I use firefox on my mac to connect to the webgui on proxmox and casaos. Up until the recent update everything works great. Now, however, all I get is a blank screen with no activity. The same bookmark works great in safari and brave browser. I tried deleting the cache and reloading everything as well as the certs related to the websites. I even deleted firefox and reloaded and got the same behavior.

Doesnt happen with firefox on my linux or windows machines, only the macos. Doesnt happen on other browsers but I would like to keep using firefox.

I usually have two Ff sessions goins; one regular for sites I log on to and a Private for casual browsing.

It would be great if I could set the Private session to always accept cookies and not prompt me, but the two modes don't seem to be separated in the settings.

Is there a work-around (or possibly a plug-in) that could solve this?

New to me Surface3 pro tablet. Have FF on my desktop, want it on the tablet and synced with the desktop. Download and install were fine up until i went to log in on the tablet. I mis spelled the email address and did not notice until the codes never arrived. I cant find a way to get FF to "forget" what i entered. I uninstalled hoping that would do it and deleted the FF old data file it saved on the screen, but no matter what i do it keeps coming back to the old misspelled entry and does not let me log out or change it. What to do! Tablet is running W10 Pro Send this from my desktop also running W10Pro

hello, i use setting "Delete cookies and site data when Mozilla closes". i also employ multiple ad-blockers, etc. when opening websites, sometimes an "opt-out" or "accept all cookies" screen pops-up. the "more ethical" websites give adequate time to respond and enter choices whereas the vast majority close within a few seconds (no time to choose). just spoke with PayPal about their website's lightening-speed "cookie" pop-up. each website's pop-up is different so i found it difficult to believe when she said this was a "browser" issue (something Mozilla controls). i realize it's fairly impossible to not have cookies gather info but what can i do to opt-out on websites (besides not opening them) like this? thanks, dave PS: i'd add an image but can't catch one!
