I originally wanted to create a Firefox account to save my bookmarks.

I'm not sure, but I think in the process of asking this question online, I created an account UN & PW...but it might just be for this forum.

Please help me figure this out.

Firefox now holds a lock for places.db during the whole time it is open

Since the last couple of days, I see that Firefox holds a lock for places.db for the whole time while Firefox is open. The problem manifests itself when I use alfred workflow to do a search for a firefox bookmark by a keyword. I see that the workflow written in Python crashes with

`sqlite3.OperationalError: database is locked`

When I close Firefox, the script is working fine. When I open it again - the script is not operational again. Tried safe mode - the same result.

This was working fine for years and the symptom points that it was changed recently and now Firefox holds a lock during the whole time it is open. I guess previously the database lock was acquired per bookmark write transaction.

FF 63.0 macOS

Is it a known issue? Why was this change made?

Thanks!

On some websites I visit the icon in the address bar is a grey padlock with an orange warning triangle. These same websites show up as unsecured in Chrome and Edge as well. Although I've been assured by the site owner(s), in this case Tracfone, that any information I enter is safe, I kinda need some reassurances that it is indeed before I enter CC financial information.

I've read the section about mixed passive content but remain unclear.

Thanks.

Seems to have cropped up around the time of the latest update but I'm now unable to create or delete bookmarks.

I've gone through the processes offered in the 'help' section (refreshed - made sure places.sqlite wasn't marked 'read only, deleted xulstore.json, double checked add-ons) and nothing's working.

Short of hitting my computer with my shoe it would be MOST appreciated if one of your smart people throw me a bone on this one.

Under privacy&security option it looks like my account is half saved... It shows the password but NOT the USERNAME (which is an e-mail address). Unfortunately I don't remember my e-mail and therefore i can't sing in to the website. Only yesterday it was fine and I could sing in. So I tried go to the web via History option. But no success. Need badly to find my username (an e-mail address). Please, help!!!


Sencerely yours, M.Th.

I understand the basic concepts of tracking protection but I've been unable to find answers to a few specific questions. I found some documentation here in the questions / answers section but it didn't provide all the answers.

1. Do I need to clear existing cookies to remove the myriad of sites already tracking me before turning on tracking protection? Or, will turning it on do an immediate filter on my existing cookies?

2. Will turning off tracking stop sites that I want to retain login information for from retaining the "login" cookie infor i.e. are we close to a full "cookie block" with anti-tracking? Or does FFox have some creative algorithm (or list) that allows it to distinguish between tracking cookies and less offensive cookies? Concurrently, is there a way to allow a "tracking cookie" if I need it to retain information for a site I'm comfortable with?

3. One specific tracking question: Will eliminating tracking cookies stop (specifically) Google's cross site advertising, where you look at a product on site A (who shares that info via google) and then a little later google's advertising mechanism pops up those products when you're at site B?
