After a phone repair, I had to sign in to my Firefox account. It wanted my 2FA code but these had gone from my Google Authenticator app. So I witched of Firefox 2FA on my computer, and signed into my Firefox account on my phone. Then I wanted to re-enable 2FA. But after scanning the QR code in the authenticator app, the Firefox 2FA screen would not accept the code generated by the app. I have tried this with Google Authenticator and Authy. Same problem.

I recently had trouble signing in to my Gmail account -- so I did a Firefox refresh. That didn't solve the problem, but it created a new one: lost all login/password info and my Primary Password was reset... that's fine, it's like losing your wallet, but I'll deal. The problem is that when I try to enter a new/initial primary password, I get an error sound and message, saying, "Unable to change Primary Password". I don't see any articles about this issue... can't seem to figure why I can't set a password. Thanks for any help!

Firefox 85.0.1 (64-bit) on Mac OS X (10.15.7) Pops up "Password Required" dialog periodically. These dialogs stack such that I have 10's of dialogs all asking for the same PIN when I return to my computer.

Firefox 85.0.1 (64-bit) on Mac OS X (10.15.7) Pops up "Password Required" dialog periodically. These dialogs stack such that I have 10's of dialogs all asking for the same PIN when I return to my computer.

First, I'm not sure why this is popping up when I'm not even using the browser. Second, I think this is basically a user experience issue. Once you've asked for the password, you shouldn't stack more requests dialogs asking for the same thing.

When I return to my computer after a long enough time, I can spend minutes typing my PIN over and over (or hitting Cancel I guess) getting these dialogs to go away.

Enforce the use of Primary Password using group policy

Hi, we want to implement gpo settings with policies.json in our organisation. We use Ubuntu 20.04 with Firefox 85.0.1 for our desktop clients.

https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md#primarypassword policies.json {

 "policies": {
   "PrimaryPassword": true
 }

}

This setting does not have any effect. I've tried it with my old profile (with already saved certs and passwords (but no primary pw)) as well as a comlete new one. Every other policy like extension management does work.

Kind Regards Rene

For some reason Firefox is deleting my browsing history every time I exit the browser. I do not have the setting enabled to 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed'.

This seems to have started happening since I told Firefox to 'forget' a couple of sites in my browsing history.

I do not have any external programmes such as antivirus that would delete the browsing history.

What could be causing this?

Recently I have issues in Zoom meetings. To make browsing a bit more private I went and activated some of the settings from privacytools.io, but I can't remember changing privacy settings before the problems started occuring. On the Firefox Beta channel I don't see any video streams (not even my own) and on the nightly channel I hear others audio speed up and they sound like mice and they here me extemely slow.

Does anyone else have these issues or an idea which settings might cause this?

I am trying to enable 2FA on my Firefox account using Authy. I just did it with FB, Twitter, Gmail, Outlook and OKTA and they all worked. However the code generated by Authy is not being accepted by Firefox so that I can enable 2FA. I have verifed that my timezone is correct (-4, no daylight savings) and that the time matches up exactly. Obviously since i was successful with the others, the issue does not exist on my side. Any help?

Sommige add-ons vragen toestemming om alle data van websites te lezen, inclusief namen en wachtwoorden. Dit lijkt mij een beveiligingsrisico, maar toch beveelt Firefox o.a. de add-on Darkreader aan. Kan iemand mij vertellen waarom ik zonder enig risico darkreader kan gebruiken.
