Hi there!

I have been having trouble with Firefox continuing to autoplay videos even with preferences set to "Block Audio and Video."

If I go to twitter.com or elsewhere Firefox will show that auto play is disabled, but videos will autoplay with no audio. I would just like to get this feature working as autoplaying videos are incredibly annoying!

Thanks for any help!

More and more sites are starting to "hide" behind cloudfare and such like which means it wants to re-load the web page automatically. Firefox is preventing this and I have to click allow every time, in some cases I can't access the sight due to this. I want to either turn OFF this annoyance permanently or to be able to "white list" certain sites to allow it

I tried to install lockwise on my mobile, but unfortunately I forgot my password to my account, which contain all the information. Luckily I have access to the associated email also the account is logged in on my laptop. But when resetting the password, I got a warning that I might lose some of my saved password and bookmarks, which I really don't want. Is there still anyway for me save my account without loosing any of my contents ?

I was messing around with Privacy & Security settings. Under Cookies & Site Data, I checked Delete Cookies & Site Data when Firefox closes. I've decided I don't like it and want to uncheck it. But now it's greyed out and I can't find any way to change it back. It says I'm in permanent private browsing mode. There MUST be a way to change this back to how it was! What is it???

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

Today, I somewhat accidentally accessed a part of FireFox that I suspect is off limits to non-members.

STEPS

  1. I pressed and held cmd-option keys then hit the i key.
  2. Tapped the Network tab
  3. Refreshed the page
  4. These messages came up. I am not sure, but I suspect these links are off limits to non-members (to see the image I made , you have to click the link).

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-06-27-12-42-27-182be0.png


5. clicked the link indicated which exposed the following restricted information. I suspect it is some form of computer code.

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-06-27-12-44-37-c81e72.png

6. When this material appeared, I immediately unplugged my computer, to avoid detection by the authorities.

I repeated the steps, but took a few seconds to capture screen images so I could post them here.

I understand security practices might dictate that you share no knowledge on this topic, but if you can safely and legally explain in terms my child would understand, what I found hiding on my computer, I would be much obliged.

I'm using Firefox 77.0.1

In earlier versions of Firefox, the password needed for a local log-on to an ip address was auto filled. Unfortunately with the latest version it needs me to manually enter the user name and password every time.

I've tried editing the Firefox about:config where a previous suggestion was to change the "signon.autofillForms.http" to "True", the local web address in question is http://172.20.10.9 and may therefore be regarded as insecure.

Microsoft Edge has no issue with saving and using the user name and password.

Thanks

My financial firm rep said they use Glance Technologies (aka Perk Labs) for screen sharing with their client devices. However, the screen sharing could not be made to work today with the rep on the phone, even though I unchecked the button in my Firefox Privacy settings for blocking popups. I am now wondering if some other Privacy settings in Firefox are known to create issues with Glance Technologies screen sharing. It would also be interesting to find out more generally about Firefox settings and screen sharing using other screen sharing technology firms.
