There are some websites that modifying the history and when I wish to go back, I am being taken back directly to home page, or worse in some others, being looped back into the current url again.

In the second one, I know the website adding a duplicate url to the history so if I right click and select the 3rd one I can get out of the loop but it's just rather quite annoying.

Is it possible to prevent these websites meddling with my browsing history? (without disabling the javascript)

Thank you very much in advance.

I am wanting to maximize my privacy and security on Firefox. I am using aliases to do so. However, when viewing the account settings and the connected services section, I saw that Firefox was connected to "[full legal name]'s Firefox on [laptop name]." I did not supply Firefox with my real name, and I suspect that Firefox is simply reading the name of the account I used to log into my laptop. However, changing the name of the device account is not easy as it is linked to my Microsoft account, but even after successfully doing so using the command center, the connected services still reads my real name. How do I change this?

I am trying to add a new email address to my account so I can change the original one because it has been compromised. When i put in the new email I'm told there's "account already exists" I have no awareness of this account and can't find any reference to it in my paperwork. The new email address I want to change to is safe and secure. If in the past I did get a firefox account using the disputed email, How do I go about finding it? I'm using version 121.0.1

Subject: Urgent: Request for Account Restoration

Dear Firefox Support Team,

I hope this message finds you well. My name is Ray Bann, and I recently experienced an issue with my Firefox Nightly browser after a system restore on my personal computer earlier today.

Following the system restore, my Firefox Nightly browser was successfully restored; however, to my dismay, all of my meticulously organized bookmarks and passwords from my Firefox account disappeared. Despite numerous attempts, I was unable to retrieve them using the Sync feature, even after multiple logins.

I kindly request your assistance in restoring my Firefox account to a previous state, preferably within the last 2-3 days, to ensure the recovery of my bookmarks. The information related to my account is as follows:

   Display Name: Ray Bann
   Primary Email: rayalessandrobann@gmail.com
   Secondary Email: ravasz.laszlo1987@gmail.com

If additional information is required to process this request, please let me know, and I will promptly provide any necessary details.

I understand the importance of data security and appreciate your prompt attention to this matter. Thank you for your assistance in restoring my Firefox account.

Best regards, Ray Bann

Dear Forum,

The AARP website hasn't let me log in for a few weeks. It gives the following message, and I don't know how to fix it. I looked in Firefox preferences, and AARP has all of its cookies listed. I'm not a bot, moving too quickly. I couldn't figure out whether Firefox allowed Javascript. Here is the message (but I deleted my IP and Proxy IP):


Access Denied Error 15 secure.aarp.org 2024-01-22 02:32:50 UTC What happened? This request was blocked by our security service Your IP: ___________ Proxy IP: _____ (ID _____) Incident ID: ____________

As you were browsing something about your browser made us think that you were a bot. There are few reasons this might happen:

   You were a power user moving through this web-site with a super-human speed.
   You have disabled cookies on your browser.
   A third-party browser Privacy or Script OR Cookie-Blocker plugins OR Extensions OR Open/SSL/Free-Malicious VPN OR Imposter Browser Plugins -- such as Ghostery, Privacy Badger, ExpressVPN, Click&Clean, Malwarebytes Browser Guard, uBlock Origin, Blur, DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, Unshorten.link, NoScript, Duck-Duck-Go, Guardian and Others is preventing Javascript from running.

I have 2FA set up for a site with my yubikey. Comparing the workflow on Chrome and Firefox,

chrome: enter username/password -> press button to launch 2FA -> dialog pops up, press button on yubikey -> done.

firefox: enter username/password -> press button to launch 2FA -> dialog pops up asking me to use my mobile device, click "use a USB key instead" -> click ok -> new dialog pops up, press button on yubikey -> done.

Is there a way to turn the extra steps in firefox off? I do not want to use a mobile device passkey, I'm perfectly fine with my yubikey. Something in about:config maybe?

My Spanish class has an embedded site access for speaking lessons that works with my microphone. However, every time I have to vocally respond, I get a popup asking if I want this site to allow this other site access to my microphone before it will record. (image included)

Both the main site and the home of the embedded site are listed on my privacy authorization page, but it does not have a button allowing me to add any other exceptions. (image included)

Please let me know what I need to do to shut off the stupid pop up that is interfering with my coursework.

Just recently I realized that the master password does not apply to credit card information. Firefox on Mac and Windows, if a login password exists, allows us to require authentication to autofill, view or edit saved credit cards. Firefox on Linux doesn't allow this authentication. So, I'm guessing that the credit card information is stored in Linux in an insecure manner. This is true? Another question about Mac and Windows. Does requiring authentication for credit card processes mean that the card information is encrypted on disk? Or does the password only protect information from unauthorized viewing, and the cards are stored on disks in text form?

How do you remove a GMAIL account from the list?

I let someone check there email and now every time I go to GMAIL it is the default. I have seen all the resolutions for this problem and they don't work! Usually they point to a settings or option that does not exist.

I am using Windows 11 with Firefox version 121.0.1 (64 bit)

This is pretty stupid that it is this difficult to remove someone else's account from your system
