Recently Firefox has been asking me for my CAC pin when it starts up. The way I remember it working is it would ask me for the pin only if I was going to a site that needed the credentials.

It's slightly annoying that it asks every time I open firefox as I only need the CAC for work related stuff. Is there a setting or something to disable this? I can't seem to find anything that works.

Version 78.0.1 (64-bit) Windows 10, Although I noticed this was happening on Linux as well.

For the last week or so I've been having an intermittent problem when I log into my AMEX screen. The saved password does not always show up. I would normally left click the password field and the password would show, however for the last week or so I'm having to right click to get the "fill password" prompt. I clean cookies and cache regularly and I even deleted the saved AMEX cookie(s) and resaved them again. Sometimes it works as it should other times it does not as described above. I've not seen this problem with other web sites. The usually left click to populate the password field. No problems with the user name field. That populates automatically. I look forward to anyone's comments. Thanks

I was upgraded to the latest version and since then I can not retrieve ANY of my old/current passwords. I have to log in each password to use sites and when I try to look at the LOCKWISE page it is empty. I did not have a master password set prior to this upgrade so when I tried to change to a new password it does not allow me to change it.

WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?

I know the passwords are there but why is Firefox doing this?

Hi everybody,

Is there a way to force a website to always open in a designated container?

E.g.: I would like Netflix (and other websites that use Widevine) to always use their own container for privacy reasons.

Thank you all for your support.

Hi! I run several messengers in Firejail (basically because they come with no source code available) to limit their access to my system and personal files. The downside if this approach - processes running in Firejail can't access FF folder and pass URLs I click on. I can grant full access to ~/.mozilla folder and that's fixes the problem, granting full access to all my browser data as well. What the particular absolute minimum files/folders I mast leave accessible for messenger process to be able to click on links and get pages opened in current FF session? Thanks.

The change password feature does not work. I follow instructions, use my current password (verified) and new password entered twice (they match). When I click on "Change" the border color of the button changes, but nothing happens. There is no error message, the page is just static indefinitely. I disabled all add-ons and the same thing happens. Any ideas for a fix?

Firefox Monitor reports 8 data breaches to resolve on my Protections Dashboard. They are for sites I never signed up for; some of which I have never heard of.

Is there a phishing bot buried in the Firefox Monitor software? Should I be clicking on 'resolve' links for sites I never used? There is just something scammy about it. I have a tracking log of every system I have networked with since 1976 and every website since the 1990s. The sites listed are not on my log.

Firefox has identified four breaches of emails, passwords, etc. This is from three websites which I have never used, or signed up for. How is therefore a breach? What do I do? The fourth is from four years ago, from an account which I no longer use, and from which the website refuses me access (Drop box- it's a nightmare) Is this still a threat?
