I noticed there is something in the Firefox browser now named Lockwise which allows anyone using my computer to see all my passwords. This seems to be a major problem when it is supposed to be concerned with security. If my laptop is stolen they will have access to all my passwords now???? This does not look like a security feature to me. How do I get rid of or disable this function?

Thx

Dear,

I am trying to download & convert a video on Youtube through Firefox Add-ons on Mac OS X 10.9.4. When I download there is a message: " [ JavaScript Application ] Conversion requires an external application that appears to be missing on your system. Configure conversion ? ".

I downloaded Java and JDK for Mac but the same message still appears when I download or download & convert a video from Youtube.

Kindly would you please help me in this issue ?

NOTICE: I AM A NEW MAC USER.

Thanks and regards, Omar Bassiouny

I am on firefox 25 and oxs 10.9, and all of a sudden for no reason, the 2 finger scrolling stopped working. its not the mac because scrolling works on everything else except for firefox. I don't really know what happened. I've already tried reseting firefox and the scrolling will work for a bit and then suddenly not work anymore. if i restart it, the scroll will work for a bout 5 minutes before disappearing.

Mozilla just did some kind of an upgrade and I've lost the option to save files to anything but my downloads folder.

How do I "right click" and save files to specific areas or folders in my computer. I don't like having to open the download folder and drag the files to where I want them to be.

Thanks!!

One of the sites I visit frequently is a news and social media monitoring app, and they have structured their URL naming convention as https://xxxxx.app.company.com/, where xxxxx shows the version of the app you are using.

Is there a way to edit the hostname in that file, so that as the updates occur, I can simply pop the new URL in where the old one was?

Why does Firefox work better if I disable Cisco OpenH264?

Videos embedded into webpages had started not playing for more than a couple of seconds. I could drag to a new part of the video and always the same thing. (No - it wasn't bufferering!)

BBC iplayer had the same problem.

I disabled the Cisco OpenH264 add-on and everything worked again.

I didn't turn it on so it must have happened in an upgrade. My settings are all straight out of the box - I'm not a computer expert - I use Firefox as it comes.

My question - is this normal? Have I solved my own problem or do I need OpenH264?

Was in the History to get to a site I visited earlier this morning, but it is claiming that I visited a handful of sites from a training that I took last week.

Since it was a site I have been to, I no longer suspect anything suspicious. Why would Firefox tell me that I've visited sites today that I haven't?

This was on a Mac computer with Firefox v20.

I have added the Extension "Awesome Screenshots" to Firefox as I need to capture web pages in my job. But every time I try to Print, either using File Print or the tool bar/menu, I can't print and get this error message: Printer Error ! There was an unexpected problem while printing. I have no problem printing Awesome Screenshots from Chrome or Safari, so it has to be a Firefox issue. Please Help!?

My hosting company claims that accessing my site's admin panel causes a port flood problem. Because of this my IP address gets blocked and I have to contact the hosting company to unblock my ip address. It only occurs when I'm using Firefox. I've checked other browsers - Safari and Chrome - and neither seem to cause the issue and thus as long as I access my site from either of those browsers, my ip address doesn't get blocked. There is very little information that I can find on this issue anywhere, but does anyone have anything they can offer as to how I can troubleshoot this?

Log info from my hosting company's support:

Feb 24 08:40:59 ldz2 lfd[19932]: *Port Scan* detected from 96.253.59.62 (US/United States/pool-96-253-59-62.prvdri.fios.verizon.net). 21 hits in the last 222 seconds - *Blocked in csf* for 3600 secs [PS_LIMIT]

Never mind the volunteers! Why the hell can't the creators of Firefox sort this out? But if they don't want to bother then I'll just forget Firefox and carry on with Chrome.

I've tried all the cute little so-called fixes, cleared the cache, even got some silly thing called Speedy Fox but none of it ever works. Please Firefox, just sort it out.
