Hi, I was looking for a funny page and found youranidiot.com and when I went to the page about a dozen or more little windows popped up and were bouncing all over the desktop with happy faces in them. I finally got them to stop and closed everything down, however now, all my bookmarks are gone, firefox will not sync, I cant change password to a primary one. I can not restore my bookmarks from previous save. I am worried they got all my info. what can I do??

I'm using one website which demands a new password every three months. That would be easy if the Firefox automatic generation of a new secure password worked with this site but it doesn't. Firefox thinks that both the Password and Confirm Password fields are asking for a username instead. Obviously I can take this up with with the website owner too -- but is there any other means of generating an obscure password when Firefox won't do it? An app? A Firefox plug-in?

Saved passwords don't appear under Preferences/Privacy&Security/Saved Logins - Strange Glitch?

Hi, Since I updated Firefox to 107.0.1 there is a weird glitch... Although all my passwords are indeed saved, they do not appear when I call up preferences/Privacy & Security/ and click on "Saved Logins..." to display them.

In a way it's secure that they don't appear... but I often need to look up a password when I am using another device to log into a site. Is there some setting I am overlooking? When I click on Saved Logins, the entire page under "about:logins" is empty. Just the bars at the top to search, and a big empty list under "Sort by: Name A-Z"

Please help! I hoped that the glitch would be fixed in an update, but I do get nervous thinking that I might lose all saved logins...

I'm on a Mac, os Big Sur 11.7.1 (20G918)

Thanks! Glenn Dochtermann

Hi All,

We recently upgraded to Firefox v107 and started seeing issue where the microphone is not accessible in the iframed page (on windows and mac os). The iframed page has microphone functionality to allow our users to record audio. Both the parent and iframe share the same domain. When i try to enable the microphone nothing happens. I don't see any error messages in console when i click Record button

Any info on what's causing this? It was working on version 106.

Thanks, David

Although I have my Browser Privacy / Enhanced Tracking Protctions setting at "STRICT": "Stronger protection but may cause some sites or content to break" and with a "Heads up!" warning that states: "This setting may cause some websites to not display content or work correctly" -- I chose to enact it, anyway, knowing taking this informed risk.

However, on a site that I just visited, I received a message (from clicking on the little duck icon) that stated: "To prevent site breakage, we didn't lock ANY companies from loading tracking requests on this page". Also, "The following third-party domains' request were loaded. If a company's requests are loaded, it can allow them to profile you, though our other web tracking potections still apply."; then listed all of the companies that were allowed to profile/track me, one that included Google. There were 8 different companies, some with more than one address!

What is the point of giving us that option if you aren't going to acknowledge or respect it?

Error only in released build of firefox SEC_ERROR_EXTENSION_VALUE_INVALID

I've had this issue for a while; I'm don't know what's causing it, as it's a very vague error that can be 'missing extension' to 'true needs to be 0xFF instead of 1 for bool values'.

I grabbed the source, and built a copy, and was stepping through accessing a custom built chain; I got a different error, this time I got SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER. Which just means I didn't add the root cert to firefox(?) Yes, after adding the root, it connects just fine. Which lead me to think 'great next firefox it won't be an issue'... but wait, 107.0.1 release does have the error still; so, I checked out FIREFOX_107_0_1_RELEASE and built that. Again it worked....

So what can be the difference between building a debug release branch version and the released version of firefox that causes a difference interpreting certificates?

I have no issues with chrome or edge (although I did fix a issue with chrome that chrome stopped working, and I fixed 1 to 0xFF for a boolean setting in BASIC_USAGE extension, and then chrome was happy again.

https://bingodemos.com/ as it is currently configured fails. With SEC_ERROR_EXTENSION_VALUE_INVALID error I don't see a way to even see the cert chain, with the above unknown issuer, I can at least see the certificates with more information.

Hi,

No matter what I do, a google dialogue box encouraging me to use google for password management, pops up every time I go to a site, new or existant.

I've gone into my google account to disable such requests, and, indeed, otherwise use google for nothing....not even search............but they keep coming anyway.

am using ubuntu 20.04, and no other utility or code is giving me this trouble.

I want to stop this dialogue box and eliminate any code in firefox or ubuntu which supports it.....as I have no idea why this box showed up....one day it just started.

Many thanks!

I tried to create a saved password for a site I need to log in to. The Create New Login form says "Make sure this matches the exact address of the website where you log in." I enter the exact address, username, and password and save it. But what shows after it is saved is a truncated form of the address. It lopped off the specific account ID information for my login page. So when I try to go to that site, my login page can't be found. Why can't the full address be saved?

I am sending in a new laptop to HP(Windows 11) for service on the keyboard and want to physically remove the stored passwords setup and synced via my Firefox sign-in, but want to make sure they do not get removed or get unsynced to my account(so can still use on existing Firefox at home). I see where you may find the location of the directory which they are stored, so can you simply delete or clear that directory on the HP device before sending out for service? Will it re-sync when PC is back at home and not effect my other live devices I will be using?
