Under "Cookies and Site Data," "Clear Data" also removes the exceptions to "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed." That's a contradiction, and basically it becomes a waste of time to enter the exceptions. That's what exceptions are -- the rule "exepts" them. It would be nice if Firefox could fix this (unless there is already a work-around for it). FWIW. Thanks.

Quite often when I page down to read message from website, then I found I missed something and like to go back one page, page up will bring me back to the top. Upon checking it is because Firefox don't move cursor with page down, the cursor still at the top and thus page up bring me there

It is really inconvenience and if anyway to fix that?

Thanks to a problem with Yahoo taking over my search functions, I had to eliminate some add-ons. Unfortunately, this meant that my browser history, saved passwords, and bookmarks were effectively eliminated. When I try to restore the bookmarks it can see the files but I get the "unable to load file" error.

Any suggestions?

Since the past few weeks, my Mozilla Firefox on my laptop keeps opening to Lavasoft ad-aware secure search page. I don't know what I installed or what I did that could have caused this, but I wish to remove this and instead have the Google search page open up by default. I can't get this done and it is annoying. I don't see this extension installed in the list of Firefox extensions, nor do I see any program like this installed on my computer. I checked the Firefox search engines, and I only have Google activated. I am on Firefox 81.0.1, by the way. I have attached an image of what it looks like. Any ideas, anyone? Thanks in advance!

The quick version of my question: Why does my Yahoo email readily open on most devices without prompting for the Primary Password? I'm not particularly tech savvy but I've looked and I haven't created any exceptions that would allow opening my email to be bypassed from the PP. Longer version: I use MF as my preferred browser and I have many websites bookmarked to which my passwords are autofilled. I work from home but I am my replacement at her office location. I was alarmed to find that when I brought up an MF browser on desktops at the office location, there were my bookmarks along with the ability for anyone to effortlessly login to a given website since the passwords were saved. to remedy, I tuned off Sync, but that didn't seem to solve the problem as my bookmarks were still exactly and easily accessible. Then I created a Primary Password on the two desktops at the remote office location, as well as several devices in my home. The puzzle is that Yahoo opens with no problem when I select that bookmark. I don't get prompted for the PP until I open another browser page. Also of concern: when I select a password protected bookmark, I can manually enter my login and see my sensitive account information if I just keep clicking on Cancel when the PP prompt appears. Is that because knowing the password "overwrites" the security of the PP?

Despite the fact I have set Firefox in permanent private browsing, I routinely have to use the "Clear Data" command to remove cashed web content. I don't like stuff being dumped on my hard drive. Recently I have been unable to remove some of this cached web content, initially 32Kb, but now it is up to 752Kb - could this be malware?! How can I find out what it is and how can I remove it?

I had Bing as my homepage and search engine, and that has always worked fine, for many years. But after a recent Firefox update, the browser will no longer allow Bing as my homepage and search engine, and because I had set the browser exclusively for Bing, I can't access another search engine. I liked the Bing homepage because it had a new photo every day, and most of those photos were downloadable to use as wallpapers. Looks like I may go back to Internet Explorer [I don't like Edge]. Why won't Firefox allow Bing now? - it's not a security risk.
