I have a question about Lockwise and the integration of Monitor.

It is claimed that since version 76, Firefox alerts for vulnerable passwords and breaches.

In this article it is explained that Lockwise scans the stored passwords and warns if one of the passwords is identical to one leaked online as well as that it shows breach alerts for sites that have experienced security breaches.

I have Firefox 79, but I don't seem to get either behavior. I can see breaches for my email addresses in Monitor (where I had to manually add the email addresses). But I don't see anything in Lockwise. See the image below, for example. I created a password "abcde" for the website and nowhere does firefox tell me it's "vulnerable" or that it's been exposed elsewhere (it should at least say it's a terribly bad password).

I entered the "abcde" password in the Bitwarden plugin and it tells me (unsurprisingly) the password has been exposed "46564 times in data breaches".

This brings me to a second question: If Lockwise is unable to automatically show a warning if a password has been exposed/is vulnerable, is there an easy way to check that manually (and securely)? Bitwarden has the checkmark button right next to the password, which allows me to quickly check if a password has been exposed. Any way to replicate this in Lockwise? (To be honest, I would prefer the way it is supposed to work in Lockwise with a banner been shown automatically, instead of manually having to click, but it doesn't seem to work.)

Greetings, After not having had access to my home computer for quite a while between the 1st week of February and the end of May, I didnt have a chance to use Firefox ( necesary to have access to my account at Eastman Credit Union as Google Chrome is not supported) i had my eldest son (who lives in the US) to manage my account while I was ouf of commission and keep me up on all the operations conducted on my behalf. But to make a long story short, when i finally was able to use my desktop PC, I was surprised to discovver that theperson who did its maintenance, he "downgraded" my version of Windows7 Ultimate from the 64 bits version -which worked fine- to the 32 bits one. And ... surprise!!- i could not connect to my bank site. I therefore strongly suspect that version is not supported by Firefox. Thus my request for help from any person who would be willing to confirm ot infirm my doubts .. Needless to say, any and help and / or suggestions on how to resolve that issue would be most welcome and I thank you for it in advance Regards from France Pierre GOSSET pgosset5@gmil.com

When I use firefox and go to "https://mediacomcable.com" then click on "MY ACCOUNT" it pops up with a button "MEDIACOM ID". When selected it redirects me to ans https://sso.mediacoms...." web site. this redirect gives the error

"An error occurred during a connection to sso.mediacomcable.com. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s).

Error code: SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP"

performing the same steps with Microsoft/Windows Edge works fine giving the prompts for logging in

I cannot find this error in any of the mozilla documents.

Any great ideas? Thanks Paul Davidson

Hey, thank you for reading this.. I'm really confused to what these are. Every time I click the firefox search bar, other sites that I've been to pop up. Is it just the recent search history..? Sorry if I'm just being silly. I deleted the search history for the discord website but it still pops up when i click on the search bar. I just don't get what that means, and what the grey icon means. If you could explain it to me that would be great

thank you Alec

At approximately the time FF updated automatically to release 80.0, I was unable to save a backup file (json) and restore it to another computer. First time this happened. When I completely removed FF 80.0 from the target computer and tried again, I continued to get the message: "Unable to process the backup file."

I can only imagine that FF 80.0 on the source computer is producing faulty backup JSON files.

Suggested solutions I've seen for this error message are from older FF versions.

I use Bitdefender on a couple of computers. It gives me notifications that Firefox has attempted to contact certain sites that BD lists as dangerous. My question is why Firefox (whether then open or not) would be contacting these sites of its own accord i.e., not because I am initiating any search or other activity. Some of these sites appear to be normal commercial sites, but perhaps a bad certificate or something, like a Carribean airline, CapeAir (I flew a few years ago). Is there something stored in Firefox that would cause it to initiate an outbound attempt to contact these sites? Thank you for any suggestions/information.

The firefox menus and messages suddenly started to appear in Arabic (see image1). I followed the instructions on the Help section and checked the language definition there (menu/ Options/ general/Language). The only language defined there is English! No arabic anywhere, not even as an alternative (see image2). Pressing OK and restarting Firefox didn;t help either.


How do I get rid of the Arabic and return to English menus?

Thanks!
