Hi,

I'm getting bored with firefox...

Spent 2 hours trying to find on internet or compare the about:config of my laptop/desktop to try to see what the problem.


on desktop on some website: when i click on a link, lets say an ssd deal for instance, i cannot reach the page and a small notification appears on right bottom corner (not below bookmarks like a popup) saying : "redirection canceled" and bring me back to the original page. on laptop same version of firefox (and same general settings) but no such problem, i started to compare each value in about:config but i stoped before becoming crazier.

whatever option i disable (website tracking) its still there, if i open in new private tab, the same.

So bored of spending so much time on some stupid option it seem i cannot have control over it, as i'm sure its just a simple value i have to change somewhere but cant find the info.

So please, if i was clear enough it my description, tell wich command i should change to get rid of it. Alternatively: is there a way to copy the config from one firefox to another? (like this i might copy config from laptop to desktop.

thx in advance for your eventual help

I want to enable two-factor authentication for my Firefox account. I did the standard steps at accounts.firefox.com. Everything seems to work except that the codes generated by Google Authenticator aren't accepted by accounts.firefox.com. I then tried Microsoft authenticator, with the same result. Then Authy, again same result.

Here are my steps. > Google Authenticator already installed on phone. It works with my Google account. > I used Mozilla Firefox to log-in at accounts.firefox.com on my laptop Steps at firefox.com: log-in > Click to enable two-step authentication > Click Add account on Google authenticator (on my phone) > Scan the QR code showing on laptop screen > Google Authenticator adds the account and displays a 6-digit code > Enter the code at accounts.firefox.com

Everything works except the last step. Accounts.firefox.com rejects the code every time. Same for every other authenticator app I tried.

I was working with my Internet Provider and in an attempt to solve and issue they had me delete my History, Cache, Cookies, and so on. After doing so, Firefox will no longer remember anything from my History. Every time Firefox closes it erases all of it. I have to login to my email 25 times a day now. I have changed all the settings that Help has listed and they have changed nothing. Please, Help.

Can I open gmail links in a different container?

I use a separate container for gmail, so google can't connect my gmail usage to google analytics showing up in other pages. But when I open a link from gmail, I would like it to go to a separate container, either one container per site, or just one big container for all links opened from gmail. For example, someone sends me a link to a nytimes.com article and when I click on it, I want to not have to type in my nytimes login again but I also want it to be separate from my gmail login. This seems not to be possible in vanilla firefox (am I wrong?) but is there an extension that allows this behavior? If my entire question is based on a naive idea of privacy, I'm open to hearing that too. :) Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello. I am a developer and I'm trying to whitelist a website I'm currently working on from tracking protection in order to prevent blocking of xhr requests. The problem is that, although I have specifically disabled tracking protection for the domain, the resources are still blocked after refreshing tabs. Looking at the exceptions list I can see that it features https://client.enterprise but the intended domain is http, without any encryption. Could that cause the issue?

I have this continuing request to update passwords and have seen a thread on this but have no duplicate passwords for any account.

The problem has another twist to it. There is a password set in the option that is not the one I have just used to sign in.The password is very long and repeatedly uses the text "padding ****"

Just wonder if anyone else has seen this?

When I try to log in to My BT, with correct details, I get a page come up with 'arcot authentication adapter controller'. It stays on this blank page and will not log me in. I am using W10 and FF 79.0.

If I enter the same details on my other PC, which uses Waterfox, it goes straight in.

Any help would be appreciated.

Firefox has this login popup window to log into apps. This works great. I have a app that I use it to open to get it going. My used need it check into the app with a 4 digit number and the we do not need this window to popup withe the login to the app itself. Is there a way to have this disable this app inside the program? I have been using the security feature for years at home to log into apps but never have it show the login inside the app. Oh, this issue is a Linux version of Firefox. 79.0 (64 Bit) I know removing this URL form my Security list would solve this but I want to use it to open the app, just not inside of it. Picture attached. Marty

"logins and passwords" feature has wrong "Last used: June 9, 2020" for every saved login, unless login was used after June 9, 2020.

This isn't fatal, but it does prevent testing each login for being fresh or stale.
