It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

I find that images generally show on webpages such as the front page of a news site. However, when I click into a specific article, the image which is usually near the start of an article in a lot of cases does not show (so it's not a "always never shown" situation); it's as if it's been removed from the webpage syntax i.e. there's no white space section showing something is missing. One example (of many I could include!) is https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/phonics-revolution-the-new-sound-of-reading-in-the-nations-schools/7A5UVZ55NAOJEQACLKELCNEU6U/ I verified there are images there by restarting Firefox with Add-ons disabled (which starts Firefox in Safe Mode), and also by opening in another browser. So I went thru and disabled *all* add-ons and restarted Firefox. Images still don't show! These missing images only show when I run Firefox in Safe Mode.

In the back of my mind, there is/used-to-be an option to limit the size of images on a page(?) but I can't find any option now. I have also refreshed Firefox (a number of times; including a total de-install, reboot, re-install) but the problem remains. .. What am I missing? I'd like to be able to see these images.

Thanks.

I want to save my credit cards in Firefox, but I cannot find the option this article refers to:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/credit-card-autofill

I only have "logins and passwords" there, not "forms and auto-fill".

Am I missing something? Does Firefox even save credit cards for international users or not?

Thanks!

Hello,

I usually had no problems deleting a single form entry that was once saved. As described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/control-whether-firefox-automatically-fills-forms#w_deleting-individual-form-entries

But now this doesn't work anymore. I can't delete the form entry. Nothing happens when I follow the instruction. I tried it on two different laptops. Right now I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-Bit). Is this a known issue of my Firefox version or has the method changed?

Thank you in advance! M.

Just curious as to why you have Google as your default search engine. Google, from my understanding, is not the most friendly entity for users because they are just like many social media sites that invade users privacy for nefarious purposes. I have refrained from using Google and have went with Bing. Don't particularly care for any of the main stream search engines. Is there any specific reason why Google is used and not some other search engine that isn't interested in violating your privacy?

After dragging firefox icon to dock on mac, unlike safari, it asks for user id and password each time I want to use it, sending notification by e-mail about the log in. Is this necessary as safari doesn't need this, and if so, is it easier just to use safari as default browser instead of firefox? Or can this be changed in settings without harming my security, as I'm using it on my mac from home. Some things work better with Firefox, but it I have to login and enter a password each time to use it, then it makes it cumbersome to use Firefox as a default browser. Thank you, First time user of Firefox on Mac.

yesterday while browsing the internet I noticed a box on the lower right side of firefox that was labeled "Oracle Co-Browse". I clicked on it with my mouse to see what it was thinking it would expand, but instead it changed to a random looking confirmation number along with a message that stated my screen was successfully being shared with other parties. To exit I had to close out Firefox completely and when my computer got hung had to do a force close of my entire system. There is o record of having visited any site called oracle prior to it having appeared on my system, and having contacted them since in order to ibtain more information regarding oracle co-browse has yielded very little as they simply deny responsibility and refuse to discuss anything they do since I am not a customer of theirs. I would like to know how this came to appear on my browser as it appears to be some sort of click-to-play option which I thought firefox did not allow?!? I try to stay clear of things that might jeopardize my security or privacy and certainly would never intentionally allow for anyone to share my screen so how can i find out where this came from and how to prevent it from ever appearing again? Please help as this really unnerved me and thus far all i am getting is more and more frustrated...thanks!

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 on macOS 11.2.1 and I can't load the PKCS11 Device Driver for my eSign. All the necessary drivers are installed on the system and the Charismatics Scard Utility recognises the devices properly. What's even stranger, is that I was able to add the device in Thunderbird (78.7.1).

Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong and get the device working, please?

Hi-- I saw a banner while changing my Firefox settings that warned me about my organization controlling the browser. I found it strange since I don't belong to any organization and this is my personal computer, so decided to click and saw a certificate for "ImportEnterpriseRobots" (see screenshots).

Does anybody know what this could be referring to? Is it a privacy breach or something legit from Mozilla/one of my extensions?

Thanks in advance for your help!

No problem to open in edge. The various tipps do not help. antivirus is F-secure. cleaning cookies and cache did not help either.

For some reason Firefox is deleting my browsing history every time I exit the browser. I do not have the setting enabled to 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed'.

This seems to have started happening since I told Firefox to 'forget' a couple of sites in my browsing history.

I do not have any external programmes such as antivirus that would delete the browsing history.

What could be causing this?
