I was looking for a list of ad ons that I got in Firefox and I tried to look into DEBUGING to see what it represents and I am shockjed to see so many "owrkers" and most of them are "listening for fetch events" have START button and an UNREGISTER link. What are those? Are they safe? Is it safe to unregister from all or some of these? The only one RUNNING (green) as opposed to STOPPED (grey) is Youtube, which also has PUSH and DEBUG buttons and I got no idea what PUSH functionality is and I never learned i n over 20 years what DEBUG is as once debug opens it seems like an alien world for me or ids it only for advanced computer geeks:

I could not find where to enter my auto fill data. I opened everything in the Menu to find where I can could enter new my auto fill information for auto filling web forms. I had the same problem when I thought I would try Microsoft Edge. Google Chrome was easy having "Password and forms" then "Autofill settings" .

What am I missing??????

I used the security manager in Quantum to allow persistent storage for Gmail. I changed the ownership and file permissions on the /media directory to my user name and It still will not give me access! What do I need to do?

Details: Windows 8, Firefox 59.0.3 (64-bit) target from about:buildconfig = x86_64-pc-mingw32 One of the add-ons was preventing me from using the context-menu "Save Target As..." I have been using the same Add-Ons for some time without issue, but I must had made a change that cause the problem, because when I disabled all the Add-ons the functionality returned. In my haste I wanted to try the Refresh Firefox to get back to square-one, but now my concern is effecting the state of the other Firefox Quantum installations I have linked through Sync. Before I did the disabling of the Add-Ons, I disconnected from Sync (thinking ahead of this possibility). I have worked very hard customizing the setting and I am happy with the set-up; I do not want to lose all of that effort configuring Firefox to my liking, so how can I make sure that re-establishing Sync is not going to change the configuration on other machines. What is the proper order-of-operation for making sure that I can get back to where I want to be? I did copy the 'pref' files a few days ago, just in case. What copy operations can I perform on the other machine to backup EVERYTHING related to Firefox and my config to rollback, I necessary. Add-ons I use (all latest versions): CanvasBlocker Clear Flash Cookies Custom UserAgent String Decentraleyes Disconnect HTTPS Everywhere Link Cleaner NoScript Passphrase Generator Privacy Badger uBlock Origin uMatrix User-Agent Switcher

This is so frustrating. I try logging in to my firefox account,says incorrect username or password. So I request an email to reset password & never get it. I've checked spam,etc. the usual suspects nothing there. I'm using a @icloud email if that's of any help. I used the same email to set up this account so I could post on here and it worked fine. Everytime I try to reset my password it says it has successively sent a link to the same email address but nothing, not a thing. Anyone, thanks in advance for your help. Oh' yeah, windows 10, dell laptop, firefox version 59.0 !

What I am trying to accomplish is on my work pc I want one instance of firefox with my work account, like normal, but I want to have another with my personal account without them getting mixed. Being able to access my data and send tabs to my cell phone would be handy, in fact, I needed it today when my printer died and I needed documentation out in the shop. I have tried to create another user account and shift+right click>run as different user, but it opened up firefox just like it is when launched normally, logged in and all. I have tried straight up installing another instance; obviously the firefox installer does not allow that. The only thing I haven't tried that I know to do is run the second instance of firefox in sandboxie, which I dont really want to do, like I dont want to log out either (switching users on my work computer actually causes a bsod) I would greatly appreciate some help. The one thing chrome has over firefox is the ability to switch accounts on the fly, though I greatly prefer firefox's way of logging into the application in a more unintrusive way. Even if I could just send a tab to my phone from a different account (share tab from work to personal account) that would suffice.

I have a new laptop, with two users, both with Firefox browsers and with their own Firefox account, both synced. I also have a desktop computer with both Firefox accounts.

On one account, Firefox syncs fine. All the bookmarks appear. On the other account, Firefox seems to sync, but the bookmarks don't appear. If I add a bookmark to the laptop account, it appears on the desktop. If I add a bookmark to the desktop account, it appears on the laptop, but still without the other bookmarks.

I have completely deleted Firefox, along with %appdata% on the laptop and reinstalled. Same situation, always the same account doesn't seem to sync the bookmarks.

I checked the logs - there are none.

Is there a fix for this?

I tried to make a purchase and during one of the redirects Firefox reported that it was unable to establish safe negotiation (error code: SSL_ERROR_UNSAFE_NEGOTIATION). The site that had the problem is https://secure5.arcot.com/ . I have security.ssl.require_safe_negotiation set to true. However, if I set it to false and go to that site, Firefox reports that it uses "TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384, 256 bit keys, TLS 1.2". I am not an expert in ciphers/TLS but the version seems sufficiently new.

I would like to report the problem but I need to know whom to report it. So far, it seems like a Firefox bug. However, I am not a security expect and, perhaps, the site is using a different obsolete SSL version to negotiate. How can I determine what exactly caused the failure?

I am in Limerick Ireland & use Firefox as my main browser, but when it returns google search results, it converts to Russian. Scrolling down to the bottom of the page, the location is given as UKRAINE. As mentioned I am in Ireland, and my stated preferred language is ENGLISH. I am concerned and more than a little irritated as it is not easy to report problems

For security, I use Bitdefender total security which includes a VPN on an iMAC.

Thank you for your help in advance

Hello,

I visited the website http:// y2mp3 .cc to convert a Youtube video into mp3.

I must mention that I did not agree to install anything from that website.

Then I started noticing adware messages mentioned to be from y2mp3.

I restarted Firefox in safe mode but saw nothing unusual.

This is an attack on firefox.

I want to remove this adware, I want that website mentioned as dangerous, and I want a security update.

Looking forward to actions and answers.
