I tried to use automatic password generation option in Firefox on a website. That website requires us to have a symbol in password. But autogenerated passwords in Firefox have no symbols in them(Chrome does). Can we somehow get Firefox to do it?

I am living in Spain, and browse in English. Often when I do a search with Google, although the result is linking to a page in English, the final page is in the one for the Spanish market (es_Es).

A good example is the Seagate website. Even direct links from other forums are redirected to their Spanish version. Also, after cleaning cache for Seagate sites, restarting, AND trying it in a Private Window.

My config: macOs 10.15.4 set to UK English. Firefox Dev Edition 76.0b3, (language same as OS) with: - Privacy & Security: Enhanced Tracking Protection > Standard - Privacy & Security: Locations > "Block new requests asking to access your location" checked - about:config > geo.enabled set to false. Google Search Region Settings are set to "United States". –

Thank you!

I have several websites where I am a paying customer to be able to access content. On some of them when I log into their site I am not recognized as being logged in, when I open a new tab on that site. On the New York Times website it will sometimes happen when I link to individual stories from the front page, but a simple page refresh then will show I am logged in.

On my job search website though Flexjobs (at www.flexjobs.com ) it almost always opens the page as if I am not logged in. It's maddening to have to log in again and then try to find where I was!

I'm running the latest version of Firefox, and have cleared the cache.

Hello! My name is Russell Vaughan and I'm a Sales Engineer at GoSquared. We noticed that Firefox's Enhanced Tracking Protection now blocks our chat widget in strict mode as it is loaded from GoSquared.com

Our chat widget is not reliant on our Analytics tracking. If you block just our tracking endpoints, opposed to all of gosquared.com, our chat widget will still load and be functional. However, all tracking will still be blocked. We've worked with most of the other tracking blocking tools to solve this.

Is there any way you can help us resolve this or point us in the right direction?

I know there a quite a few os this same question, but they're old and none of their solutions work.

I have checked Block Audio and Video Autoplay in my settings, but Firefox does not block them. Audio block seems to work sometimes but video block never does.

This is extremely annoying and I need help.

Thanks.

Hello,

Please, advise as to how I can go about undertaking a full review of my security situation.

I am particularly concerned as:

- My gmail account password was accessed then changed (locking me out) and is only stored on Firefox - I was locked out of my Firefox account due to the 'Account Recovery' being changed to 'Disabled' without my doing so.

My internet setup is secure re VPN. etc.

Your prompt advice would be well appreciated! Thanks.

Hallo,

sorry, dass ich in deutscher Sprache, in Abhängigkeit vom Wohnsitz, anfrage.

"Cookies und Website-Daten Die gespeicherten Cookies, Website-Daten und der Cache belegen derzeit 99,0 KB Speicherplatz.":

- Diese 99,0 KB lassen sich seit Wochen auch nicht manuell löschen, obwohl ich davon ausgehen darf, dass das Vernichten der Daten bereits im Rechnerabstellung erfolgen muss/soll.

Was sind Ihre Ziel führenden Lösungsempfehlungen? Auch die Neuinstallierung der Browser-Software führte leider ganzheitlich-nachhaltig nicht zum Ziel.

Was verbirgt sich konkret unter den '99,0 KB', wie kann ich das wo einsehen und endlich die Löschung manuell oder eingestellt automatisiert wahrhaftig löschen?

Besten Dank für Ihre Unterstützung bereits im Voraus.

Freundliche Grüsse C. Wilhelm

After updating to Firefox 77.0, it no longer store my cookies between sessions.

I have made sure the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is UN-clicked.

I tried deleting the cookies.sqlite file and replace it with an archived cookie.txt file, but Firefox 77.0 no longer converts cookies.txt to cookies.sqlite.

I then tried backing up the cookies.sqlite file after a Firefox session spent signing into various accounts, but it too seems to get cleared out.

I was using an unprotected wifi for about 3 days and now I have unknown programs running and sometimes commond prompt boxes suddenly poping up and dissapearing. I'm nolonger using the computer and I'm changing all my passwords just in case. (not getting FF to remember them)

But there are unknown usernames and passwords in my synced passwords. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/930340 Does this mean the hacker has all my FF passwords and can access it anywhere and anytime if I change them is sync? Should I make a new Sync account?

I'm looking for non-social Firefox edition or version. I want to follow the latest FF updates, but without any integrated services like social spyware and any other kind of malware. Options disable / enable are not sufficient to be safe and security in Firefox is corrupted by social API.

Social services and features must be implemented only as a simple optional extensions and nothing more.

When I try to access this US military site, https://www.tricareonline.com/portal/page/portal/TricareOnline/Portal I get a warning that this site can't be trusted. I then get a notice to override Firefox if I trust the site. I get a certificate, override, and finally get the site. But this has happened a half dozen or so times, every time I try to log in to the military site. How can I log into this site without the annoying warnings?

A newspaper website asked if I wanted to tell them my location. Firfox popped up and asked if I wanted to automatically tell sites that ask my geographic location. I clicked and got more information. There was a section that gave instructions to permanently disable geographic location tracking. I followed the directions to disable, even though the default is no tracking. I had to type an two words with a : separating them into the address bar. This brought me to a long list of settings. I followed the directions but now it seems my location is being tracked by everyone.

How do I get back to this list of settings (which was not accessed through Options) to go back to the default?
