I received a data breach alert from Firefox saying my email address & password had exposed on a particular site, and to change my password for that site. But I do not have an account with the stated site. I have visited it but never opened an account or logged in to it. What action do I now take or should I just ignore this alert and mark it as "resolved" ?

Hi, I've been notified that there was a data breach of my email and password - but the data breach was at a company where I do not have an account. I guess that is possible somehow, but how do I figure out which password they got, because all my passwords for different companies are different. If they got a password for some other company I should change it, but I don't know which one to change.

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

Why do I have a bar for all my tabs and an extra one above that for the minimize, maximize and close button(see screenshot)? This is on my laptop, but on my PC at home I only have one bar with both functionalities combined. How do I combine them so that I have a more simplistic design?

Thanks! :)

Suddenly Firefox is using Yahoo as the search engine. FF Version 79.0. Windows 10 totally up to date. The FF Option is set to use Google but if I enter anything either in the "url" area OR the Search area - it's using Yahoo search. Driving me nutz! (short trip) I've searched through regedit for yahoo and see nothing set to use it for a search engine. Just started happening.

Even when I open a new session or tab, the "URL area" has: "Search with Google or enter address" But if you enter anything - it uses Yahoo. At a loss, anyone have any ideas?

Thanks, Steve

over the last few days there is a small vertical cursor line that appears at the last mouse click location like it's waiting for me to type something there. like the browse button below. if i click outside the box a blinking vertical cursor line appears outside the box where i clicked. it is obviously not a place where input should be expected. this has only started over the last week or so and only with firefox it doesn't happen with chrome. I just opened a story on fox. the title of the story is not a link or a place for me to type or enter text but if i click anywhere in the title text a blinking cursor line appears.

So I downloaded a few programs that were legitimate, no viruses or anything I checked, but also added a few programs. When I started seeing weird problems with firefox, I went to uninstall them from my windows, and I did. I uninstalled every program from today. But Firefox still won't let me search anything. When using the search bar, if it's one word, it'll search and automatically put other things in the search to make it look for a website. If it's more than one word, it just doesn't respond to me hitting enter or clicking the search button. I believe it's because Firefox seems to have lost all options for a default search engine. It has nothing selected for a default search engine, and whenever I click on it to show options, it just doesn't. Also, I have no weird add-ons that showed up, and the problem persists even when I disable every add-on I have. There are also no weird plugins. Can someone help? I'd rather not have to search google.com every time I want to search for something.

Every time I open Firefox, a javascript from IcelandSue.com tries to connect to the internet. I've refreshed Firefox, cleared the cache, used NoScript to block this script, but it always remains. I've found the site listed as a Data Miner and would like to delete it from where ever it has installed itself inside of Firefox. Thank you, jason
