Looking for a solution/work around to the new FF protocols which REFUSE exceptions, which has cut me off from streaming from LEGITIMATE web sites like https://news.stlpublicradio.org/ and other sites as well.

I have used FireFox since Netscape, but am now using Chrome which works fine.

Security is great, but when the security Trumps the ability to actually USE the web sites, then how is that different than just blocking the "offending" website.

You should ask yourselves why the FF market share is so low.

You guys need to come out of the clouds and smell the digital earth where most of us dwell. I love you all for what you do, but you seem to be blowing it. Please get it together.

Any site I go to such as my utility companies that have a link for me to open and view my bill while logged into my online account are prevented from opening by Firefox. Their help articles define the pop-up window as a window that opens automatically. That is not what I'm talking about. I am selecting the link. I am giving the site permission to open the window. It is not automatic. Google Chrome, Microsoft edge, no other browser has this problem. please help.

This is in regard to the privacy settings under about:preferences#privacy > 'Allow firefox to send technical & interaction data to Mozilla' where I'm willing to opt into just interaction data, but not willing give my technical data, because of the temporary collection of my IP address. Due to this, I have to opt it out completely & unfortunately couldn't contribute to mozilla's data collection stats. If there's anyway to split those separately, would be better.

Thank you, Prince Cooper

Hi, I have Autoplay disabled in the firefox settings, however as most people will know a lot of websites circumnavigate this becasue they know better then me.

The below website "Twitter" refuses to acknowledge my "settings" https://twitter.com/search?src=typed_query&q=%23ukraine

Why can't Firefox fix this? Why have settings if websites can just ignore them?? Also another thing, Autoplay dosen't make any sense to me, if you wan't to watch the full video, you have to first turn on sound, and then move the slider bar the the start. This is stupid! Just let the user choose if they would like to have videos autoplay or not. I hate the internet.

One more thing, I do realize there is a setting in Twitter to disable autoplay, however you need to be logged in for that option to be available. Websites should just repesct the settings of there webusers. Thants why "global settings' exist. Unfortunately just another redisculous control feature of the modern internet.

Thank you for reading and or helping.

Permission Problem with Camera

We have a customer using our SaaS solution running through Firefox 91.12.0 ESR. The web application we provide requires access to the camera on the local machine so we can capture a photo. We give them instructions and they configure their instance of Firefox to ALLOW access to the camera, along with several other adjustments (like allowing pop-ups, and no autofill).

However, whenever they restart Firefox the camera permission reverts back to the DEFAULT of Always Ask. The other settings adjustments we make, like pop-ups and no autofill stick around, but not the camera setting.

We've checked the PREF.js file in the Profile folder and that doesn't appear to be a problem. On our in-house machines we are running the same version of Windows and Firefox and cannot reproduce the problem.

The customer has recently applied the upgrade from an earlier version of Firefox ESR to 91.12.0. The customer has also imaged the PC and copied over to a large number of additional machines for use around their organization. This problem is causing a serious disruption to their deployment of the updated PC's as we work with them to try and troubleshoot the problem.

Any ideas on what to try would be appreciated.

If i remember correctly Mozilla earns around 80% of their income from Google. I have said it before and i will say it again, Mozilla claims to stand for Privacy (maybe that was true in the past at some point) while Google is tracking Billions of Human beings 24/7 as they use Google as their Android Operating System, that can be considered very much anti-privacy. (Sadly majority of people either don't care or are to silly to install a different OS on their Phone).

Clearly this looks like a conflict of interest, one company want's privacy while the other one makes their money with tracking human beings and selling their data and then giving a part of that money to mozilla for using google as the default search engine in firefox.

If knownledge is power then how much power does google have? How much do they know about you? Your contacts, location, online searches and history, and so on... I seriously think people should quit google immediately, what this company is doing is literally criminal, unless ofcourse people are once again silly enough to let it happen.

Firefox says on it's website "At Mozilla, we believe that privacy is fundamental to a healthy internet." If true why do you BY DEFAULT have telemetry ENABLED and why do you BY DEFAULT use GOOGLE as search engine?? Something is obviously not right here. What is also very interesting is that this site support.mozilla.org is connected to www.google-analytics.com and to www.googletagmanager.com Im guessing this basically means when i use the mozilla support site or login with my account, google is also gathering data about me.

Google has become the cancer of the internet, way to many sites have it embed aswell as facebook. Shame on all those greedy people who allow this massive privacy invasion just for their own profit. But honestly at the same time, can you really blame them? After all the people who allow this to happen are responsible aswell, this is just disgusting. I woonder if the whole world would like to end up like china, because if not then what in the universe is wrong with people? Wakeup! Delete Google Delete Facebook Delete Tiktok and eventually your brain might be able to function again, install a privacy operatingsystem like lineageos or grapheneos and don't touch any anti privacy app ever again, is it so hard?? Was totally simple for me.

=

   Interaction data: Firefox sends data about your interactions with Firefox to us (such as number of open tabs and windows; number of webpages visited; number and type of installed Firefox Add-ons; and session length) and Firefox features offered by Mozilla or our partners (such as interaction with Firefox search features and search partner referrals).
   Technical data: Firefox sends data about your Firefox version and language; device operating system and hardware configuration; memory, basic information about crashes and errors; outcome of automated processes like updates, safebrowsing, and activation to us. When Firefox sends data to us, your IP address is temporarily collected as part of our server logs.

=

As a final notice, i don't beleve that this is everything mozilla collects, surely your tight parnership with google analytics is able to identify every single firefox profile and connect it to the person using it.

Hi, Every time I delete/ clear all data/ history there are always one shortcut to previously visited webpages on my start page left, Youtube. Open "burger menu" Privacy & Security Cookies and site data --> Clear everything in that section. History --> Clear everything.

Open "burger menu" History --> Clean all previous history -- Clean everything.

But still that shortcut still remain.

I would really appreciate help with this.

Dear community,

I understand that tracking of third-party cookies is now FireFox' default. However, I put my FireFox privacy options to "strict" and opened the website tui.com. What I see in the web developer tools is that several cookies are set, which are not tui.com itself (please see screenshot). The first might be exlainable since it is a subdomain (?), but why are the second and third set? However, when clicking on the data protection icon in form of a shield next to the "ssl-lock" I see a lot of ther third party cookies are prevent. Why arent the second and third in the screenshot?

Thank you very much for your time!

Hi I have had my firefox setup so that it didn't show the urls drop down with sites I last visited so people didn't see what I looked at so I could be private. Yet this "Top Sites" checkbox was added recently and caused my url bar to show past sites visited. I find this a privacy violation.

Geachte,

Heb al een tijd te maken met volgende foutmelding in mijn Telenet Webmail, zijnde ... 'Niet beveiligd' - mail.telenet.be/zimbra....

Heb reeds contact genomen met Microsoft Windows 10 Ondersteuningsteam, met Telenet zelf, met mijn pc verkoper/IT-er, maar niemand is blijkbaar in staat dit probleem op te lossen, want vandaag krijg ik die foutmelding nog steeds te zien in Telenet Webmail.

Wie kan voor dé oplossing nu zorgen ?

Dank bij voorbaat voor feedback.


Met vriendelijke groeten, Freddy Van De Velde
