1) Firefox advertised free apps when you signed up for vpn. However, when I signed up for vpn, I didn't get any apps. Did I do something wrong? Why didn't I get the free apps? 2) I don't seem to be able to add the VPN two other computers. It seems to want to sell me (Again) the VPN. I don't want to buy it again, just add my existing VPN to other computers. 3) I have some Macs that run Parallel's. Do I need to add Firefox VPN do the Windows that is running on Mac. Or, does my Mac Firefox VPN somehow protect the windows without adding a separate VPN on windows?

I suffered a catastrophic crash and had to replace my computer, a mac. I replaced it with another mac.

Because the older one will not boot up, I could not migrate my firefox data.

I ended up doing 'lost password' for all my sites.

There are a couple where the lost password thing hasn't worked.

It occurred to me to rename the (new computer's) logins.json file, copy the old computer's logins.json file from my external backup drive, put it in new computer's /user/library/application support/firefox, and then look in preferences, get the two passwords I want, set things back, enter these passwords into firefox again.

This did not work. In fact, now no matter which file is named logins.json, preferences says I have NO passwords stored.

I cannot find anything that tells me how to just decrypt the .json files (at least, not in a step-by-step way that I can use.)

Enhanced Tracking Protection NOT Detecting Trackers on All Sites I Visit

Hi,

I have come across an issue where the Enhanced Tracking Protection (ETP) feature has stopped working on every single website I visit.

Every website I visit, the ETP icon is greyed out and not detecting any trackers.

For instance, when visiting the independent website, the ETP icon usually glows blue to indicate there are trackers. However, now, it is just greyed out, which is incorrect.

So far, I have done the following troubleshooting steps to fix the issue, but I have had no success:

  • Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox
  • Signed out and signed back in
  • Disabled and removed all extensions
  • Cleared cookies, cache, history, site settings, etc.
  • Opened Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode (with extensions disabled)
  • Deleted my profile/files and created a new one

I have also checked this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1327504

Can someone please help me with this, as I have no idea what else to do to fix this issue?

I started Firefox from scratch with a new profile, and the ETP worked for a short period, but when I closed and restarted Firefox, it just stopped working on every single site - this keeps persisting.

Any help would be appreciated!

I've only just recently had this issue: If I'm not already in full screen mode on my MacBook Air (Ventura 13.3.1), then I can enter and exist YouTube's full screen mode just fine. But if I'm already in full screen mode with the browser, then after going full screen with a YouTube video I can't exit. I can exit the full screen window, but then the video stays in full screen with no menu bar available etc. Instead I have to close Firefox and open again. See the attached image - I can change the size of the window but only the video screen appears. I can still use shortcuts (ctrl+tab) to navigate tabs etc.

When I go to certain web sites, (Xfinity, Blue Cross Blue Shield), a message pops up saying, "This page is slowing down Fire Fox. To speed up your browser, stop this page". When I go into Safe Mode, I can get to those sites. How can I get rid of this message/problem? Fire Fox has current update as does my Mac.

my email works just fine using Safari so I am at a loss.

I have tried running FF (Firefox) in safe mode, ensuring outlook.live.com is an exception to the pop up window blocker, changed default protections on outlook dot com to none from standard.... Turned off ABP, clearing cache and cookies from within FF.

it may be worth mentioning that I can still browse/access other websites while outlook produces this error, and my network settings within FF are set to use default system settings (no proxy).

Never had an issue with my Gmail sidebar calendar loading automatically on Firefox. With the latest Mozilla update to 114.0.2 for my Mac, the calendar sidebar flashes the calendar icon but fails to load. The other sidebar apps are functional. I can load my full calendar in a new tab with issue. Signed into my Gmail account on Chrome and Safari and the sidebar displays as it should.

Hey all,

I have a few customers that use Firefox and the last month everyone has experienced an issue with tabs constantly crashing. Everyone is on the latest version and there really doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason.

I've tried: -Doing a clean install -FireFox refresh -Disabling Extensions (we only use uBlock Origin) -New Profiles

Not sure if this is normal but there's nothing in 'about:crashes' after it happens (i assumed because it's just tabs and not the browser itself).

These are all Windows 10 machines.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello,

I had to deactivate 2FA briefly, and then attempted to use a reactivate it again. I am able to scan a QR, but when I try to enter the OTP codes that show up, I receive the following message "Incorrect two-step authentication code". This has happened with Raivo and Authy (the previous 2FA app). What is causing this?

Hello,

Occasionally I select a bookmark in my menu bar that has become orphaned. Once on the page, I select the "Blue Star" and then try to remove the bookmark for that page to no avail. The bookmark remains even after shutting down and restarting Firefox (sync is off). Moreover, there are some bookmarks for which the "Remove Bookmark" option is not available after selecting the Blue Star.

I know that I can delete unwanted bookmarks using the Bookmark Manager but that method is time consuming when it comes to unknown, orphaned bookmarks that one stumbles upon from time to time. The aforementioned technique for removing these orphaned bookmarks is quicker assuming it worked.

Perhaps the Blue Star could remain filled in once a page is saved and subsequently returned too. Should one wish to remove the bookmark one need only return to the page and deselect the filled in Blue Star thus returning it to its outlined form while also removing the bookmark from ones menu.

Thoughts?

I have been using (VIEWING articles in // saving articles TO my) FIREFOX "POCKET" for more than a year.

I have the pocket ICON on my upper toolbar. But ALL that seems to do is allow me to ADD an open page TO Pocket. I have NO clue how to simply **Go t o POCKET** and VIEW any / all my saved items there.

Good God, WHAT is the secret handshake??! ...in trying to figure this out I see numerous things telling me to SIGN IN to pocket ... IF way back when I began using pocket I MADE a USER NAME / Password for it, that info is long forgotten. I HAVE a FIREFOX account ... was sent therewhile supposedly (according to Firefox" HELP") to 'sign in' to my POCKET account. Only took me to an overall FIREFOX account page - wherein NO LONK there referred AT ALL to POCKET.

I 'SAVE' to my pocket (ICON) almost daily. NEVER need any kind of sign in for this. NOW I want to LOOK AT / READ some of these - BUT FIND NOWAY TO GET THERE. ICON omly SAVES a page.

Ridiculous. HOW do I VIEW / SEE / FIND /READ my saved pocket items?

Hello. I run Firefox as my main laptop (Mac) browser. I have added Zotero to manage my writing reference citation library, and have downloaded the current Zotero Connector for Firefox. I should be able to add references from online, by using the Zotero save icon that should appear on my Firefox toolbar. But this icon is nowhere to be seen and I cannot see how to make it appear. The whole advantage of Zotero for me as a writing academic is pinned to this function, so I am anxious to get it working. How can I get the Zotero save icon in its proper place on my Firefox toolbar, just to the right of the search window? Many thanks

Hi all,

I’m trying to make aware people of the recent Google movements to close gate the internet to their services and I suggest to folks to move to Firefox.

One of my colleagues encounters a problem clearly visible on the image attached (it shows correctly on my mac).

It's not as bad on my mac, where I only have issues every now and then - I received an email this morning on my work email, and all the apostrophes were replaced with Registered symbol (R in a circle).

I noticed that not allowing websites to use their own fonts fixes the issue (unticking "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above") but I would like to be able to view sites the way the developers intented rather than forcing my browsers default fonts.

Any ideas?

Many thanks
