This is a security problem. Checking emails I often suspect a spam so I do the inspect to find the URL that they want you to go to. But on Google I can inspect it using the search of the URL and not move to the URL. But on the Firefox new tab it seems like I'm supposed to go to the spam website as I'm not to search the URL, just go to it.

So is there a way to change this?

And oh yeah I did finally figure out that the older computer (that Microsoft killed with an update) kind of made some of the problems I had before using Firefox. And now I'm back to really liking it. So again is there a way to stop the Firefox new tab from forcing me to go to the spam URL? Over all I can ignore it and just use Google home page. Thanks if you know how to stop that.

2 Step Authentication Account Issues with email that no longer exists

Hello,

Since 2 step authentication has been added to the Mozilla add-on accounts, we no longer have access to this account. We have the email address and password, but cant enter the code for the 2 step authentication as the code is sent to an email that no longer exists. We have another account that we would like to transfer an extension to from the old email account. Is there any way to access the old account or transfer the extension from the old account to the new one without having the access to emails sent to the email address of the old account?

This is important to us as the id of the extension used within the non-existent account is preventing us from loading another extension with the same id. This is to prevent us from having to rebuild our NMH software that must use the appropriate id for communication.

Any help would be appreciated.

When I try to change my password, it makes me log in, which I do using my old password. Then it makes me authenticate it with a code it sends to my email, which I do. Then I get to the change password screen, enter my old password, my new password, and my new password again to confirm. But it won't let me save it because it says "incorrect password." I know it's not the incorrect password, because I just used it to log in.

Will YOU PLEASE STOP trying to make me use an email that you choose, and NOT what I want to use. Everytime I try to change my login, I get the message "you must use your primary email". To my mind the primary email is the one that was my FIRST. I am trying to. To my mind [REMOVED BY MODERATOR] is MY PRIMARY EMAIL, THIS IS THE FIRST I HAVE EVER HAD, AND I DO NOT WANT TO CHANGE IT. I WANT TO CHANGE MY EMAIL ADDRESS TO MY ORIGINAL, not the one that this website keeps trying to make me use. Can you just flaming STOP IT. I believe in the freedom of speech, and what I do on my PC is MY business not mozilla's. So if you can get yourselves sorted out, please let me know. I have just read your blurb on the RH side of this page, and the experience I have had, is a million miles away from my experience with this website. One final thing "I WILL NOT BE DICTATED TO, MY EMAIL IS UP TO ME NOT MOZILLA."

Hi,

I recently had to "refresh" Firefox after internet connectivity issues (Firefox would randomly be unable to connect to the internet for several minutes at a time, many times throughout the day). A refresh seemed to take care of that connectivity issue, but it did reset everything else. I'm having issues now where Firefox is automatically logging me out of accounts that I would normally be logged into all the time. Passwords don't autofill anymore when I attempt to re-login to this accounts (even though post-refresh I have opted for Firefox to remember them).

"Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is currently UNchecked, and besides that, I haven't quit Firefox. I've put my computer (mac) to sleep several times but I don't quit firefox when I do this.

Any other ideas? I've used Firefox for years without a single issue but have had several things pop up over the course of the past month that are making it a bit inconvenient...

Thanks in advance-

FF was configured for https only and should of provided a message at the very least but it continued to configure the non https.

This is a critical fault as it clear says in the configuration https only. See the screen capture enclosed

Currently, I have configured my Privacy & Security settings in which all third-party cookies are blocked. This causes certain websites to break and become nonfunctional.

How do I configure my settings to which all third-party cookies are blocked by default, but for specific websites I choose they are not blocked?

I do not want to change my settings in which cookies are blocked only from websites I have not visited; because there are some websites I frequent that I still wish to block third-party cookies.

Thank you

It would be the dream solution to the nightmares I'm facing presently. I don't know how to upload the video, but here are the freshly created Photos.
