I re-set my password and am trying to log in to FireFox Browser Sync on windows, it says it will send me an authorization code and to enter it, I received the code and entered the code exactly as received, and it says it's wrong. It's rejecting the authorization code I'm receiving from firefox by email, there's no question about it, I'm not making a mistake, entering it exactly as is, capital letters matching the way it was received in the email, even copy pasted it once, tried it 4 times and it keeps rejecting the authorization code it's emailing me...

Please help

Is there a keyboard shortcut to access the menu button and add-on extensions button (top right of toolbar, not the menu bar)?

locking as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1250243

I'd like to know if there is a shortcut to toggle the "3-bar" menu button and extension button section of the toolbar. F6 only selects the address bar. Then hitting Tab only moves over to the search bar, and hitting Tab again just toggles through page elements. For instance, in Google Chrome what I am trying to accomplish would be done by hitting Alt and then left-arrow until I've selected the extension button I am looking for (or by hitting F6 and "tabbing" to the right to get to the toolbar buttons). In Mozilla, the only way I find I can access the extension functions or the "3-bar" button is with the mouse.

Why do you complicate with this process with video download helpers. It was a simple 1,2,3 steps with no "one step external downlaod manager? Why did you do this in making it so difficult?

I am on a very small VA Disability Pension (total and permanent) and can't afford to make an error with my finances.

I am very slowly getting up to speed on all things Computer related (email, browser, search engines, operating systems, etc).

Because I am also 60 % blind (strokes) I also have great difficulty working with computers (PC Win 7, 4 GB RAM, Intel 5 Dual Core, Dell Studio Desktop) (Android Safelink Lifeline Cell Phone)

Today I experienced a server Computer Infection that disabled all Computer Security (Microsoft Security Essentials and SpyBot Search & Destroy) when I tried to do a Full Scan with MS Security Essentials. I eventually regained full security control and successfully completed a Full Scan with both software anti-malware programs.

Just read a Consumer Reports article on Recommended Anti-Malware-Virus Software for PC and MAC Computers. It recommend Bitdefender Free Edition and paid Internet Security 2018 Edition Software.

I almost always use Firefox (original) Browser for just about everything I do.

But I do have IE and Google Chrome installed because I am a Disabled Veteran and I have to use only those browsers to access Federal DOD Accounts and Federal DES Accounts, etc

I just now did a Chat with Bitdefender Technical Support and they said there is no remaining compatibility problem between Firefox and Bitdefender. 100 % Compatible ? . So I did a search using DuckDuckGo, Bitdefender, Mozilla internet sites and found plenty of problems that appear to have been solved recently ?

I am also thinking of upgrading to Firefox Focus and Thunderbird to improve PC & Cell Phone Privacy and Security.

Bitdefender recommends uninstalling all Security Software before attempting to install any Edition of Bitdefender and the Technical Support Person I Chatted with confirmed this.

The Technical Support Person recommended Bitdefender Total Security 30 day free trial version because I was going to install the Free version to test it out and then if it had no problems with Firefox, Google Chrome, and IE then I was thinking of upgrading next month April 2019 to the Internet Security 2019 Edition.

Right now Bitdefender has a special price on the Total Security Edition of 44 USD as apposed to the 40 USD for the Internet Security 2018 Edition

What do you all think I should do ? Install Bitdefender Total Security 30 day trial and then upgrade to paid 44 USD Edition ?

Thank You oh so much for any and all your time and thoughts on this issue of Compatibly Privacy and Security.

duplicate of /questions/1250739 thread

Hi...

I just tried this but it didn't seem to work, so please forgive me if it is posted 2x.

When I try to log into some sites, I keep getting the error message shown on this screenshot: https://www.screencast.com/t/MzE0sDvp (For convenience, I'll try to upload the screenshot, too, but that didn't work before.)

I have tried the suggested fix: uninstall/clean reinstall. I did that 2x. Even restarted my computer between uninstall/reinstall. It did not work. The error message persists.

I am on a desktop PC, Windows 10 1809, must up-to-date version.

I also have always been on the most up-to-date version of Firefox, as I have auto update enabled. Currently, I am on v 65.0.1. The problem persists.

As the screenshot shows, some sites think I am on version 56. I have not been on that since version 57 was released.

Can someone please help?

Thanks, Bruce

I apologize for grammar, syntax and punctuation. I'm not english speekinh person, I used Google Translate)))

Hello, I am looking for information on organizing the sharing of any resource. For example, there is a certain service access to which costs $ 1000 per month, my friends and I decided to throw off $ 100 thereby saving money. How can I organize access to 1 account for 10 people from 1 FirefoxPortable browser, from 10 computers so that the service does not calculate and ban us?

1. Synced my Firefox sync account

2. Disconnected my Firefox sync account

3. Reinstalled windows

4. Installed Firefox 56 (I was using 63 but i only had 56 installer)

5. Updated it to 65.0.1.

6. Connected my Firefox sync account


Problem -

1. All bookmarks didn't sync.

I created bookmark HTML backups and it were of 6mb and my latest backup is 171mb.

There are 2980 differences in 173mb backup and Backup taken after again connecting to FirefoxSync. I used WinMerge.

2. HTML backups also contain fav-icons [and Firefox Sync only syncs links not fav-icons.]

When browser is used fav-icons are loaded but after sync fav-icons are loaded as pages are loaded , so there are no fav-icons and html backup size is less than the last backup.

3. Could be related to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1251781

4. There could be something wrong with Firefox's Exporting. Imported the same 173mb HTML to chrome and Firefox then exported HTML backups. Firefox Export was of 61.1Mb Chrome Export was of 12.9Mb

DISABLE UPDATE & NAGGING

Just going to shit up your boards every now and then until the option is restored. -Don't care if I can do it with a policy file. -Don't care if this is the way *you* think it should be So, if either of these is going to be the response, kindly suck down shot of shotgun mouthwash, you will not be missed.

There is absolutely no reason for this checkbox to be gone. There is absolutely no reason that I should have to edit some fucking json file with a "lol third party text editor" to prevent something that was formerly done with a checkbox. That's right, I cannot configure your software-- your giant, bloated, RAM and soul-sucking software from within the program. That's pathetic by any metric. Fire everybody responsible for suggesting and implementing this """""""""""BUG FIX."""""""""""""" Want to update Windows? Hurrr quit windows and edit windows.ini and then restart Windows duurrrrrr. It's like Back to the Future except we only went back to '93.

Restore the check box to disable updates. Stop obfuscating shit intentionally, and stop trying to look down your nose while telling people that it's somehow better because you did.

PS: As far as I can tell, all the original """bug""" report said was, "I'm too retarded to live, save me." Instead of doing the Spartan thing and simply saying, "No"-- we find ourselves here. With countless long-time users dropping your product so that one or two retards might continue using it.

I look forward to this complaint being thrown into the trash can, the account banned and the software remaining broken while at least $20 of Mozillabux spent on a safe space teddy bear to coddle the feelings of an incensed mouth-breather. Perhaps some sort of mandatory PTSD counseling for the staff... Anything but call the retard a retard and go back to making sane software defaults.

locking this thread as support is being rendered in the original thread - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1249850


I've already asked the question and gave my email address but now didn't see how to get to the forum. I started out having a problem hearing sound on facebook and youtube videos. Checked sound on pc - fine. Had a pc expert uninstall and reinstall firefox and the sound worked last night. This morning the sound on those videos is gone so I uninstalled and installed firefox again and now it says that facebook and youtube don't have safe connections!!!!! I didn't appreciate being offered the reimage app and then finding out it would cost me something after it went through my pc. I am being as nice as my frustration allows.

I have designed a website, which downloads two files.

1. test.txt 2. test.log

I was working good before i upgraded the Firefox to version 65.0.1

Now after upgrading, only the test.log file gets downloaded.
