My ability to access saved passwords on regular sites I visit is lost each time I turn my laptop off. This means each time I log onto Mozilla I have to reset Privacy. This does not happen on Microsoft Edge. As I would really like to use Mozilla I would like to sort it out.

regards, Andrew

Feels like heavy censorship this was closed right away shortly after creating the thread... https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1390467

Why was this closed? Why would Dropa recommend private browsing mode / incognito mode? This mode has nothing to do with being private, google safe browsing, do i have to say more? Google and privacy don't fit !!! Besides, there are SO MANY youtube videos where people explain why incognito mode IS NOT private, so to be honest that is a really lame response to what i have said in the original post.

I have a need to use regular browser (not kiosk), but disable the "open downloads folder" once a file has been downloaded. This is opening a file manager (thunar or alike) which then allows the user to browse the filesystem and open a terminal emulator from /usr/bin.

Using the policies, I am able to prompt for downloads, or select a download location, however I have been unable to completely stop the user from opening the download folder which opens a file browser.

Is there any way I can select policies or profile options for disabling the option for opening download folder?

It appears that the security settings and others were changed without any notification during a recent update. A login with card number and password were subsequently saved without my knowledge thus exposing my online banking accounts to possible unauthorized use. This should not happen and should be addressed.

• Mozilla makes most of their money by shipping Firefox with Google as default search engine. • Mozilla partners with Facebook to create "privacy preserving advertising technology". • Mozilla now includes a unique identifier to all Firefox downloads/installations. • Mozilla Firefox by default has telemetry enabled without informing the user. • Mozilla Firefox now includes more and more bloat such as Pocket, etc.

None of the above is good in any way... this is serious BS makes me worry about Mozilla and my Privacy while using Firefox, i already switched to Librewolf anyways but i still use Firefox for other purposes. Anyways... did i forget something? Am i missing any headlines above or is that it?

What does everyone think about this? I mean seriously, what do you think?? You folks on this forum obviously are using Firefox, so..?

How to BLOCK systemtimezone detection in Firefox? Can this be done with firefox or with the operatingsystem itself? After all i know for a fact that the bromite android browser has this feature and it works. I noticed that disabling javascript blocks systemtimedetection, but it also basically renders the browsers useless for my purposes.. are there specific javascript config settings regarding systemtimezone detection? I really feel that when a website spys on my systemtimezone this is a breach of privacy as this goes beyond the browsers im using to view the website but instead directly access information about my system, im not ok with that... Using a virtualmachine just to fake systemtimezone cannot be the solution, this is ridiculous.

By the way, i hope Mozilla won't let down support for Manivest v2 ever, there is a chance firefox will gain a boost in users after google pushing Manivest v3 that hard... making adblock useless, what a shame.

Logins still work using autofill so the data is still stored somewhere.

Hi!

I have been using Firefox browser for so long I can't remember when I first started using it, so "June 2004" was an absolute guess to satisfy the too-inflexible parameters of the login process.

However, to the problem... Firefox has been my default browser for the past few centuries and is likely to remain so until the internet itself becomes obsolete. Recently I also installed Brave because I want to separate some of my internet activities from the rest. The Brave installation process apparently set Brave as my default browser without consulting me. So I went into my Firefox settings to return Firefox to "default" status. That was simple enough, but what I also noticed at the top of my Settings page is a message I've never seen before which reads, "Your browser is being managed by your organisation."

   err... WHAT ORGANISATION???  My computer is a stand-alone "home" computer which I own and manage, and is not networked to anything, not even a printer.  When I connect to the internet it is by password protected mobile hotspot through my phone, but I make this connection only when I need it and disconnect when it is not in use. 

So, this unexpected message alarms me. Have I been hacked and my browser been taken over by some unknown entity of whose existence I was unaware until I saw this message... or what?

How do I block whoever/whatever the "organisation" is and take back permanent, secure control of my browser? Anyone who can throw some light on this will be much appreciated. Thank you.

21 Sep 2022 Starting today, when trying to open Youtube, Firefox began rejecting access with the message "Secure Connection Failed Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG". Only applies to Youtube, no other site affected. Updated Firefox to latest version, 105.0, still no access. Tried various proposed solutions which failed, ended up adding the Youtube URL to the list of trusted sites (first site ever added). That allowed Youtube to open. But when I tried to login to Youtube, I got the same error message. I added the login URL to my trusted sites, but then when I next tried to open Youtube, I was blocked again by the same message. Win 10 home, version 21h1, OS build 19043.2006 Help please. Axel Wilkinson

On my laptop, I run FDE as my daily driver, with the release version to handle my webmail. I also use portable firefox (from portableapps.com) as a browser to use while at work, from a thumb drive. While using that portable verison, I usually just go to google image search, and a work site that would definitely be secure.

My question: I don't like to update the installation on my thumb drive very often, and occasionally work computers are very slow anyways. So if I were to update it no more often than once a month, which version of firefox would be most secure: Release, Beta, or Nightly?

If doing this is just dumb, then which version gets updated less often--it would be Release, correct?

It seems with the 105.0 update all my saved logins and passwords went missing. Coming back to Firefox after the update it made me connect my account and use sync. However I don't use any other devices where information may have been stored. I tried looking for other profiles, of which there is only one, checking on my logins.json file for a corrupt version which does exist but opening it shows nothing.

Does anyone know a solution or workaround?

Thank you!
