This is so very simple and so the fact that it seems impossible to get a straight answer makes me instantly suspicious. Here is the question: What is my location? Simple! In other words, I have Mozilla Firefox installed on a physical device, which HAPPENS to be a desktop computer, not a mobile phone, etc. In other words, it stays here. So why do alllllll the sites act as though I am literally 930 miles...from my actual, physical location! I have NO VPN running...none. Unfortunately, Firefox is using Google location services, WHICH IS THE PROBLEM. I just installed Firefox, instead of Chrome, to solve that problem. I guess THAT was a stupid move, Firefox is worse!

There needs to be a manner in which the USER can INPUT THEIR LOCATION. I'm not trying to "trick" anyone...I'm actually trying to give people ACCURATE INFORMATION which apparently is beyond the capabilities of the internet, to provide.

I get this message from Gmail when I try to print or open in a new tab.

"Grrr! A popup blocker may be preventing the application from opening the page. If you have a popup blocker, try disabling it to open the window."

I can not find a way to fix this and did not have this problem with the previous version.

I had issues login to my Firefox account, so I reset my password, which cleared my data with passwords and bookmarks. I later found where I stored my recovery key and wanted to see if I can recover that data again.

Later version refuses to connect to my modem, and goes into security web mode. This modem uses HTTP/HTTPS for access, i.e., connects directly it's IP address, then the user enters a username and password. At that point, the the modem switches to HTTPS for control.

With this recent update, there is NO WAY to access the modem for any work, or upgrade the HTTPS certificate on the modem. This is a BUG.

What should happen is that if the web site will accept a HTTP connection, Firefox should NOT refuse connection or test for security issues UNTIL the user or the device switches to HTTPS.

As an aside, I've used Firefox on this Zywall modem for years until recently.

Recently Twitch and WarGaming, as well as other advertisers, collaborated on "Twitch drops" Somehow, Twitch is able to determine which tab is on top and being viewed by visitors to the website. It's one thing for Twitch to know I'm visiting the website, and quite another for them to determine if in fact the tab I have open is front and center. Seems to me this is a privacy issue that needs to be addressed.? (I have not yet determined if this Twitch snooping is working in private tabs yet, but I soon will)

My website has a branch that is protected with username and password. At the prompt I enter those, exit Firefox and start Firefox again. When I go to the branch and this time I do not get the username and password prompt and have free access. However, when I do shift-refresh the prompt shows. Apparently Firefox does save something that it shouldn't. Is it a BUG???

Can someone please alleviate my sudden sudden onset of paranoia and tell me that this is what I suspect it is? That it's just your standard dev tools any user would have, and that a company could configure in deployment to work phones. I exceeded my IT tech talk comfort-level about 32 words ago, and now I'm faking it. I'll try to project confidence.

I don't believe I've ever used InTune on any personal device, but I have on work phones in the past. I mention InTune only because the last time I did use it to load company apps onto a personal phone was in 2016, and it would feel pretty creepy if this had managed to migrate across several years and several organizations to land on my new phone. And, to be clear, I really didn't get uncomfortable until I saw the apps under Flagfox, with an IP tracker, etc. I have a couple exes who have psycho exes; the kind who manipulate their child into putting a keylogger on their ex-wife's machines.

Screenshots in order of rising alarm and intensity of goosebumps.

Thanks- Dave.

LoL... As soon as I hit Share Data, I see those apps bringing up my data to help you troubleshoot, thereby answering my question, but I'll post it anyway. Hopefully, someone gets a laugh out of it.

After restarting my computer last week, I suddenly couldn't reach ANY websites on my computer. I tried changing security settings. I tried deleting Firefox and reinstalling it. Still, to no avail.

I don't have any problem reaching websites via Firefox on my laptop or my mobile devices. I also have no issues with using Google Chrome or Bing.

For some reason, though, I'm suddenly having the same connectivity issue using Zoom, citing Firewall and Proxy issues (I'm a single, home user). I tried turning my security program off, and that didn't help. I also did a scan using the security software and it could find no malware.

I have tried restarting the computer, and powering off and restarting the router. No help.

I'm not sure why I'm suddenly getting this issue with my desktop. I have Dell ProSupport, and while they're trying, they haven't been able to nail anything down.

Any ideas why this would suddenly happen, and only to Firefox? (and, for some reason, the Zoom connectivity?)

Almost every time I open Firefox it has changed my screen look, my preferences and my security settings. I'm lucky if my restoring lasts 2 days. For example; this morning I opened Firefox and all appeared to be OK. This is afternoon and Firefox has come up with a dark screen, changed preferences and altered my security settings. I've raised this subject before and I'm really tired of doing this. I favour Firefox because I like the relative independence of it, whereas MS and others seem to pry on everything one does. I also think MS is deceitful in that I cannot get back my MS Office (that I paid for) after a rebuild.
