I installed mozilla today and I looked in to my settings and found this message "Your browser is being managed by your organization."

I am not part of any organization since this is my home pc.

I checked the forums but i couldn't solve this.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox doesn't exist for me and i don't use avast.

On about:policies it shows "Certificates-ImportEnterpriseRoots-true"

What is this ImportEnterpriseRoots thing?

I'm using a laptop with windows 11.

Can anyone help?

I got a new computer so I created an acct and set all my open tabs and history to sync. It wasn't intuitive to my not techie brain, but found out how to open all the tabs on the new computer. However, they don't open in the same order (makes it almost useless when you have a lot of tabs), and the tabs don't have their associated history.

Is there some way to have Firefox open tabs and history in the same state on the new device?

Hello. I wanted to secure my Firefox account and add two factor authentication.

But two-factor authentication does not work with the Yubico Authenticator Android app for generating the 6 digital temporary codes for logging in that I use.

When I add a firefox account to my Yubico Authenticator application for Android and generate a 6-digit code, when I want to add it and confirm it on the firefox settings page - it does not work and the code entered is unrecognizable. This is why I am unable to finish adding two factor authentication.

Can you check it and update and support the Yubico Authenticator application from Android?

Regards.

I cannot find this anywhere. As a Topic . I've Reinstalled Firefox several times,and,each time the Browser continues to Import the previous instalations Bookmarks.

Noticed that a small Dialog box pops up stating what is being installed,with 'Importing Previous Bookmarks". Should be an Option on Instalation that handles exactly what is to be described as installed. Supposed there used to be. Since im used to installing w/o 'default settings.

The little check box that denotes 'use old settings,and apps,does nothing.

Have another problem with my Bookmarks. And this is what I need solved Reinstalling Firefox without Importing Previous Bookmarks.

Options for Migrations is not a punn here.

From time to time i need to log into my ISP's website portal, yet from today which is since the update yesterday) it will not allow me to it has my log in details saved correctly, but when i try to log in the sit it says they are incorrect, which they are not.

At first I thought the issue was with my ISP's website, so I was on the phone to them and together we tried crhome and edge and the log ins worked just fine, but not with the Firefox browser.

So sadly either something you changed in that update seems to be messing with the log in on this site and possibly others or possibly one of the add ons I use with it together with the browser is now causing an issue and is interferring I wouldn't have the first clue.

I am using a Dell Inspiron 3847 with the standard keyboard which came the system years ago

Recently, when viewing a large online page, when I try to scroll down, the scroll doesn't start until about two seconds after I press my scroll key (which is the lower-middle key of the 4 keys between my right-hand "Ctrl" key and the "0" of the 10-key keyboard at the far right of the keyboard).

This delay started happening a few weeks ago. I do not know whether something I did caused it.

How can I scroll my view starting immediately, rather than having to wait two seconds for it to start?

Greetings!

I would like to be able to open selected links via the search tool with CTRL + Enter, like it is possible on most browsers. Basically, I do CTRL + F, select a text which brings me to a link I was looking for, and do instantly CTRL + Enter to open this link. Currently, this shortcut only toggles the ability to see all matched texts and doesn't open the link.

Do you know if it's possible? Thank you!

Since Firefox for Windows upgraded to 105 the Wordle web site fails to work - it displays the grid at the bottom of the window with no scroll possibility & it displays that even when a correctly working browser displays my statistics.

The website works correctly on other browser (Chrome & Edge), on Firefox for Android and on Firefox for Windows 104 (luckily I had a machine which hadn't been on for a few weeks and therefore was no up to date).

The attached images show the website as it should be (on Chrome) and as it appears on Firefox 105

While exploring about pages in Firefox, I came across about:profiling. I'm not sure what exactly it does, but since I've been to it, a profiler icon has been added to the toolbar and I can't find any way to get rid of it completely (only ways are to hide it). If it could be added, there must also be a way to remove it? How can I close it?

What is with Firefox lately. Endless problems with screen sizing, light dark mode. But what is really pi**ing me off is the inability to connect to certain web pages. No I don't have a any spyware or viruses (I have scanned with 3 different programs) and I have no problems with connecting to the pages with Chrome or Edge. I'm getting the error messages

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.amazon.ca because this website requires a secure connection.

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.ebay.ca. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details. Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

And I get the same warning with Amazon, eBay, my email client Shaw Mail, Google Search, and several other pages that require a login. Is there anything I can do to fix this as I'm really starting to rethink my preferred web page browser?

My Firefox (Windows 10) updated to 105.0 this morning. I have https://www.google.co.uk/ as my homepage and Firefox always used to focus on the Google webpage search bar on startup.

Now it focuses on the address bar instead (i.e. https://www.google.co.uk/ is selected). How can I make it focus on the webpage search bar on startup again instead?

I already found this thread from last year https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334131 and tried changing browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false but it didn't have any noticeable effect and the issue is still present.

Many thanks.
