I subscribe to a number of separate "Things" hosted by a single company (silly example) http://stuffstuff.co.uk. My user name for each of the separate things is "mr-silly@silly.co.uk" and the only thing that differentiates them is that each "Thing" requires a different password.

Thing 1 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 1sillything Thing 2 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 2anothersillything Thing 3 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 3moresillything

and so on...

Unfortunately this Lockwise thing will not permit this to happen, presenting the following stupid message.

"An entry for http://stuffstuff.co.uk with that username already exists. Go to existing entry?"

How do I get around this Lockwise silliness?

The email address is required as the user name by the company.

Don't suggest having a different email address for each user name, that is not possible.

While the question maybe posed in a silly manner  :-) I am quite serious about the problem. Thanks Ax

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

Version 76 has serious problems in Mac Mojave and Catalina. I'm thinking of moving to another browser if the problems aren't fixed in a few weeks. In Mac Mojave, the UI sometimes blinks and sometimes becomes black. I had to restart the app but it happened quite frequently. After updating to Catalina, all shortcuts are unusable, most right click menus are blank and even the menu bar is blank. When hovering the mouse over the menu bar, nothing displays, just blank menus. Sometimes, the app starts up with default UI although I customised it a bit. In those cases, I had to close the tab or even restart the app.

I'm getting disappointed and perhaps I'll move to another browser soon.

cannot log in to my Bank of Montreal online banking!!!

I've used Firefox for years, and for years I daily do my online banking.

Now all of a sudden, without any warning I cannot log into my bank account. I've tried clearing history, etc. I've tried the about:config change...

I can log in fine with Microsoft Edge.

My wife uses Firefox and she can log into the bank. I suspect that is because Firefox has not updated on her computer.

This is maddening, to put it mildly.

I have used Bing with no problems for years now, recently it has been giving a banner at the top whenever I use it stating that a website is slowing the browser, then options stop or wait. I have never had this before. It comes up on every page that is opened in Bing. I have waited and never seen a web page open or anything. Also, none of the functions on the Bing page are working. I cannot click the three bar link for more options, change the safe search option, or sign in to my Microsoft account. All these links are dead. When on a page I cannot use the filter link. I also cannot click on anything at all while the banner notice is up. I have tried to get help form Microsoft and they were unable to do anything. They suggested using their browser Edge. They suggested emptying the cache, which I did with no change, and they suggested uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it. I do not want to do this because it will destroy al my formatting and lose lots of links, etc... as it has every other time I have done this. I hope someone here will be able to help me. I prefer Bing search engine to all the others. I have tried Google and DuckDuckGo and they do not work for me, or find what I am searching for as well as Bing has. The others seem to be more for purchasing and not searching and so I do not like or trust them. Using Windows 10 on a Desk top PC, and had no trouble with Bing until the last week or so.

I do maintain several sites. Yesterday I noticed an unknown icon on my site www.magoster.nl www.magoster.nl . It was an icon showing a "wheelchair". It can only been seen a) on my desktop and b) with Firefox. Chrome and Edge do not show it. On my laptop Firefox does not show it. All Apple devices do not show it. So, it is only to be seen on my desktop + Firefox. I scanned site and desktop several times on virusses (McAfee): nothing found.

This wheelchair-icon opens a window whch gives possibilities to alter accessibility of the site. It claims to do that for disabled people. There is a link to a site: https://accessibe.com.

My site www.magoster.nl is a Wordpress-site. All plugins are up to date. All systemsoftware on the desktop too. FF latest version. But I can hardly believe that it is something on the site.

Is anyone familiar with this icon and https://accessibe.com? How did I get this icon and - more important - how do I get rid of it. Thanks for any glues!

I am still using FF 58 because it allows me to delete recent history and cookies. For some reason, often when I reboot the computer. FF switches me to V72. and I have to go thru hell to get 58 back up and running. I love to keep my history for sites I have visited, and v58 allows me to delete everything for the day, 4 hours, 2 hours or one hour.

72 does not appear to give me that option. How can I delete only recent history and cookies, and keep the rest?

I have 3 email addresses, one of which is a gmail address. The other two get checked in the Firefox Monitor, but when I click verify in the gmail acount email, I get this error: This email address is not subscribed to Firefox Monitor. What does this mean? The other two addresses have been checked and the breaches for them have been resolved. For some reason, I can't get the gmail address verified to see if it has been breached. Any clues as to why this is so?

Last night I noticed my Windows 10 64 bit machine did an auto update. Not sure this has anything to do with today's problem; maybe coincidence.

Today I started the reference software "Zotero" and the program cannot find the database of my papers. This is of course crucial for writing grants, references for my class that I teach etc. I have never seen this error before.

In Zotero help, this is listed as a Firefox problem, with a reload and other steps as a solution. I am leery of messing with my database as it has years of publications in it.

Any chance you could advise me on this or get FF to fix this? It will likely happen with future updates. My Firefox browser version is 81.0.2 and is up to date.

P.S. If you hit the "locate" option Zotero closes. It will not allow you to search for the database (see image attached)

Thanks.

I'm presented with two pop-ups that I must dismiss, every time I restart the browser. The first one reads:

User Account Control | Do you want to allow this application to make changes to your device?

After dismissing that, a second pop-up appears, reading in part:

Firefox Software Updater | Firefox can't update to the latest version. | Download a fresh copy of Firefox and we'll help you to install it

Then I must choose either "Download Firefox" or "Not now."

Please understand that I must deal with these pop-ups despite the fact that my Firefox is current.

The solutions suggested in the answer to the above-referenced previous post are of no help.

I've consulted my computer manufacturer, which told me that this issue is strictly one with Firefox. I hope you can help.

I was logged into a website which hanged and when I tried to log back on it started giving me the error PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR .I've tried to troubleshoot with all the help I could get on these pages and others, I'm at my wits end. The website works on my phone browser, so it's clearly this laptop or my internet dongle.

It's also happening across all browsers. I don't have VPN or antivirus software on except Microsoft Essentials. I've tried removing real time protection on that but it didn't work. I tried creating a new profile of Firefox, nothing. I tried going to about:config page and setting security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling to false, nothing so set it back to true I've gone to task manager to see whether there is a task don't recognise so I can stop it, nothing. Pleeeease heeeelp meeeeee!
