I'm locked out of Two-Step Authentication, and should be getting an email as an alternative. I go to https://accounts.firefox.com. Here I sign in and it says:

"Confirm your account

Check your email for the verification link sent to (email)"

Nothing is in my inbox



I NEVER get the email. I've tried and tried. I have account@firefox.com added as a contact. I dug through my spam, trash, junk, inbox.. everything. I've tried to resend the email over and over. I've tried waiting days in between sending. I've tried doing this on my phone also. I have nothing from: account@firefox.com

Something about Microsoft and Mozilla isn't playing along well. Mozilla displays my email address and it is the correct email. I have previous emails from Mozilla there, nothing recent.

There shouldn't be anything stopping me from getting Mozilla's emails. I checked other email accounts just in case but no luck. I'm searching all over for my emails from account@firefox.com and nothing. Can someone help me because I can't log in otherwise.

I refreshed Firefox, now Lastpass and Ghostery don't show up in my toolbar or work anymore (Mac OS 10.9.5). I removed the Lastpass extension, then reinstalled to no avail. Oddly, Adblock Plus is in my toolbar and works fine. Attached photo shows Adblock, but no Lastpass or Ghostery icons in my toolbar.

I'm working on developing something using Codepen and when I refresh either the pen itself or the browser completely the pseudoclass selector for `:hover` does not work. It does on first page load when I open (or open and then close) the browser.

Example: I am trying to style a `< li >` and it's child.

I open the pseudoclass selector and check `:hover`.

I have a setting to change the display from `display:none` to `diplay:inline-flex` on a child when the `li` is hovered. It does not do this if I refresh internally (in codepen) or if I refresh the browser itself.

It works again once I close Firefox and reopen altogether.

I am including two screenshots of the working and not working states. The first (firefox-devtools-bug1.png) shows working, and the second (firefox-devtools-bug2.png) shows the not-working state.

Certain sites like clyp, soundcloud, bandcamp, etc don't work on firefox yet, they work when I try them on Chrome. This issue of audio not playing correctly is becoming an increasingly annoying issue for me as I have started school where listening to mp3 files on blackboard is part of the curriculum. None of them work on firefox and, I've had to email professors to reissue quizzes to me.

I want to download/update to Firefox v.80.01 for Windows 64-bit, but every time I try to download anything at all, Firefox pushes 81.0 on me (just released today), which I do NOT want. I'm running the latest "Extended Support" release (79.0 64-bit). I'm 80 and do NOT want to test software. Do I have to keep running v.79 if I don't want v.81, or can I download the version I want?

How can I get Firefox v.80.01?

Thanx, Anne F.

I can not log in to my bank to do on-line banking. (M&T Bank). The page simply will not display with Firefox, yet I have no problems at all on Chrome, edge etc.. I think you have gone too far with your blocking. I tapped on the shield icon and the bank has all of its security credentials correct. I followed your "help" and basically you say that if I turn the setting down, a hacker can get into my banking. Yet the other browsers have no issue with me, nor does the bank itself. I'd hate to leave a browser Ive been using for many years, and one I really enjoy the interface, but every time you do an update, I lose yet another function. Can this be fixed?

My thanks in advance. Tom Koch

Starting this morning I'm getting a weird error message when I try to share articles from things like Daily KOS from my email. This is the message: "App Not Setup: This app is still in development mode, and you don't have access to it. Switch to a registered test user or ask an app admin for permissions."

  I have no idea what that means and I don't see any references to it in the community answers. Suggestions?

Thanks.

Why am I now having Bing show up as my default search engine when opening Firefox? I don't want Bing but can't find any way to remove it. My settings are such that Yahoo should show upon opening the browser and Google is set as my default search engine. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, check settings, etc. but I still get the damn Bing showing up as my home page and search engine. Any help would be appreciated.

Recently my laptop was fixed by Dell (under warranty) and its motherboard was replaced. Since then tabs crash from time to time, a few time every hour. Sometimes upon opening a new URL sometimes while working. It writes "Gah. Your tab just crashed." Sometimes clicking "Recover" helps, sometimes it crashes again and I need to click it more times. It can happen in many varied sites: Whatsapp web, Google Docs, Gmail, eCommerce website and so on. I updated my Windows update, my Firefox and the graphic driver to the latest version, with no help. Here are a list of a few crashes happened during the last hour or two: bp-9de44d6a-3a90-4783-a7d3-c93180200922 bp-049c5dc5-b7fe-4833-aca2-a33c70200922 bp-d895ec6c-04d8-41c2-877f-85d720200922 bp-08c846e9-dd3a-4281-9d5d-72d8a0200922 bp-d476bbef-f778-4d8e-a764-f9d4f0200922 bp-22dce83a-48bb-45ad-9a0d-06cb40200922 Your help trying to find the problem and fix it is most appreciated!

Has the behaviour of Firefox with regard to caching style sheets changed in the newest version?

I ask since I develop with Visual Studio and browse the development build with Firefox. Hence the URL will be similar to:

http://localhost:55223

If I modify a css file in the build and refresh the page in Firefox it does not change. It never changes even after a CTRL+F5, nor after starting a new session.

If I browse the site with Edge it does pick up the change instantly after tapping F5 to reload. To see the changes in Firefox it's necessary to rename the css file to force a reload of it.

This only seems to have started happening since the latest build and makes it impossible to use Firefox in the development environment. Is there a "hack" for the settings to force a reload?
