It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

I am dealing with what appears to be a browser issue. When I try to log in to my Mint account using Firefox, it requires me to verify that I am not a robot. Then using reCAPTCHA it brings up a set of images that I click. After clicking each set it keeps bringing up new sets of images and prevents me from logging in.

When I contacted Mint they said I needed to clear cookies in Firefox. So I cleared cookies and still cannot log in. It keeps throwing new sets of images at me over and over. I have been easily able to log in to Mint using Firefox in the past, but just recently it will not allow me to log in. I do not understand why.

I chatted with Mint who told me to use Chrome. I tried using Chrome and I can log in using Chrome. Why can't I log in using Firefox?

Also, is it feasible to offer a chat window to discuss this problem?

I go to a website and need to upload a file. I click the upload file button on the web page and the pop up will not appear. I've done every option imaginable for Pop-ups to no avail.

What security setting am I missing?

It works in chrome which I prefer not to use but I suppose I'll make the switch if I have to.

Regards,

Hello.

I'm trying to get Firefox to stop autoplaying videos. Under the autoplay settings in Options, I have selected "Block Audio and Video." Didn't work, videos play muted. After searching for a solution, I found a suggestion to try to set the "media.autoplay.allow-muted" to false in about:config. Nothing changed, they're still playing muted.

I'm specifically referring to videos on Facebook and Twitter.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks.

How do I disable the new certificate warnings that showed up with a recent update. I use industrial strength security software on my systems. I don't need nor want Firefox blocking every web site I visit. Firefox is starting to act like Microsoft. I have used Mozilla products since you started but sometimes you drive me crazy ;o) Thanx, Mike

Hello,

My privacy settings never actually save. More specifically, the autofill username/password settings. Every day I have to go back and check the box for autofill. I would like this setting to just remain so I don't have to do this every day. My Firefox is up to date.

Where do I locate the list of saved passwords in Firefox? The current password manager (Firelock) only allows me to remove passwords one at a time.

I have over 1000 passwords on my machine 90% of them are not mine.

So please tell me where the file for saved password is om my machine so I can either delete the list completely, and start it again, or so that I can edit it with a text Editor.

This is not a Chrome machine.

While trying to fix Firefox's massive memory leaks, I went to Help/Troubleshooting/Add-Ons and found these, which are NOT in the usual Manage Add-ons page:

Amazon.com extension Bing extension

ClearURLs extension <-- Oops! I actually installed this, to try to trim URLs of all the tracking crap when I paste one into a Facebook comment.

DuckDuckGo extension eBay extension Wikipedia (en) extension

All of the other extensions listed are ones I installed and wish to keep. EVERY time I install Firefox, I go to the One-Click Search Engines list and remove all but Google.

I don't know how these wormed their way in, but they don't seem to add any functionality for me.
