This message is from a concerned life long Firefox user and a life long staunch Firefox advocate. I have resisted IE, Chrome, Safari and all the big tech browsers for well over a decade. Now, sadly, I had to dump Firefox and switch to a Brave clone.

It appears that Firefox has joined the cancel culture mob.... The censorhip cheerleaders.

If the filth in this article is indeed the company view, I cannot in good concience use firefox: https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2021/01/08/we-need-more-than-deplatforming/.

Dump Mitchell Baker. Retract the blog. Have her put it on her personal wordpress. Anything. Please. I want to use Firefox again, but with this sick world-view at the helm, I cannot support it.

The push notifications from allowed sites are enabled in the privacy and security settings, but the little box that's supposed to pop up isn't popping up. I depend on these quite a bit on YouTube, so I need them to work. Any ideas on what might be blocking them? If you could give me a list of things to try, I'd be very grateful. Thanks in advance!

After every AUTOMATIC update my bank has to text or call me with a verification code. Somehow, I've fixed this in the past, but after this last update I can't find an answer. Other browsers have no problem. Why is Firefox so damn complicated?

Hi,

I am confused about the two ways we control cookies. Firefox says its blocks trackers ( ie cookies), esp third party ones, which are the problematic ones. 

But when we surf, we see options to accept third party cookies. So far I always go ahead and select No. But could I be saving time by clicking yes; knowing Firefox blocks them anyway ? Shouldn't there be a way that Firefo sends information to the site I'm visiting automatically about my wish not to have third party trackers?

Thanks, Caroline

Updated to Firefox 86.0. MacOS. If I now attempt to access my router using its local address (192.x.x.1) it simply doesn't happen. I've allowed pop-ups for the sign in window - although it never needed it before. Tried http and https. Also have a bookmark for it which no longer works. All I get is a blank tab, yet there's some endless communication happening according to Menu Meters Rx/Tx display. If I do the same as always using Safari I can log into the router exactly as I always have done. Why? What has been changed? What has Firefox blocked? Help please.

Hi, does anybody else have this problem? I am using the Facebook container add-on which works fine apart from when I have been on Facebook and then go on to the MSN games site without closing Firefox first. If I close Firefox after using Facebook then open MSN games all is fine. If I forget to close Firefox and go straight to MSN games I lose all my games history and have to log on again with a pop-up appearing saying that they have changed their privacy policy. Many thanks

I am trying to enable 2FA on my Firefox account using Authy. I just did it with FB, Twitter, Gmail, Outlook and OKTA and they all worked. However the code generated by Authy is not being accepted by Firefox so that I can enable 2FA. I have verifed that my timezone is correct (-4, no daylight savings) and that the time matches up exactly. Obviously since i was successful with the others, the issue does not exist on my side. Any help?

As per topic title, while downloading files from my university website for class and switching back to a youtube page, I got the strange popup "Would you like to make this document your home page?" I selected no, but I would like to know if this is merely something that can happen at random with Firefox, or potential malware or the like.

Thank you.
