Firefox Monitor notified me of a data breach of an account that was deleted automatically due to inactivity by LiveJournal.com eight years ago. How come my e-mail still got in the data breach that supposedly happened three years ago in 2017 and has just been discovered? It says the breach included e-mails and passwords. I don't even remember what password I used back then and the account is deleted, so I can't log in anymore. Is there anything I should be concerned about? How is this even possible in the first place?

I ran into some problems recently as I usually clear out everything that was saved in my internet folder. I go to Tools/Options/Privacy/Security/Clear Data, well, this is about a week, but an INSISTENT 267 bits are REFUSING to go and be let free from my cached web content.

Additionally, I usually run an RKILL scan, a JRT scan, and a Malwarebytes AdwCleaner scan when I've finished logging off, for security reasons. The JRT scan flagged a "staged folder" in my FF profile, and had removed it. The folder had some sort of code in it.

Um, while we're at it, is FF still using IE as a "gateway"? I know at one time it was, but I seem to be also harangued by Searchscopes.

could someone help me out, please.

I'm using FF 76.01 and windows 10.

Thanks so much in advance,

MM.

P.S. also got a report that one of my blog tabs had been breached, with an ad from Avast - is this common?

Hi, I tested the DoH in the firefox browsers on Windows (77.0.1 (64-bit)) and noticed, that the browser does not use DoH with disabled HTTP 2 in about:config. Why? The Linux version of Firefox (74.0 (64-bit)) behaves correctly.

The browser actually tries the canary DoH query to Cloudflare for example.com via HTTP 1.1 protocol. But even after receiving DoH response, it does not use it a continue with classical DNS...

Do I something wrong, or it is really impossible to use DoH with HTTP 1.1 on newer versions of Firefox?

Thanks for the answer, Karel

I posted a similiar post but it did not take the link when I tried to enter ec2-52-89-235-93.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com.

The previous FF forum link is "what is ec2-52-27-162-24.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com" The new values after performing a clear of cache is as follows

ec2-52-89-235-93.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com port 54977 104.16.248.249 port 54976

Firefox always asks whether I want to save passwords of websites I visit. In case of soem of my personal financial sites, I never want the password saved. In Options / Privacy & Security / Logins and Passwords, I have the box "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" checked, but I list the sites I don't want saved in "Exceptions." Despite this, Firefox always asks, and each time I have to check "Never ask" again and again. Extremely annoying. What can I do to fix it? Thanks! Best regards, Gedeon

Hi.

I have bought a new laptop and have installed the Firefox browser but have forgotton my Firefox password. The password reset email from Firefox does not render as HTML; the email just presents as plain text. So, I cannot see the password reset link.

I saw a 'hack' that suggested copying and pasting the email text into Notepad and save as a *.eml file but Notepad doesn't have the *.eml option. I'm on Windows 10.

Any ideas how to resolve this issue.

Many thanks.

When I tried to log into the browser with my firefox account, instead of logging in I was created a new account. It turned out that by entering the login options it was redirected to the Chinese version of the page accounts.firefox.com.cn. Even if you change the link content manually, I cannot log into my European account in the browser. Why is this happening? Is my data which I accidentally used to re-register on the Chinese version safe?

Hi, my Password Manager Extension (LastPass) always requires me to login after opening Firefox. It used to login automatically and is set to do so, but..it doesn't. I suspect a Firefox setting is preventing it from doing so, because this started after i did a Firefox-reset for an issue with my antivirus software and flash player. I clicked through the settings but i cant find a setting which would keep LastPass from automatically being logged in when i open Firefox. Can anyone help me here?

Firefox was working ok to browse localhost:8000 on a development machine running Django development server. However, it suddenly stops working (perhaps after a nightly update). The Django server is running fine at http://127.0.0.1:8000/ but when trying to browse http://localhost:8000/ it just shows the following page:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-07-07-07-00-36-6e06d5.png

Other browser such as Epiphany browser are working ok. I know it´s a problem with Firefox settings because I fixed before for the previous version but unfortunately I don´t remember how I fixed it (I feel so silly now for no been taking notes). It seems that now Firefox updated automatically overnight and override the settings.

Any ideas?
