I have a new PC with Windows 11. Setting default programs in 11 is very complicated. My email client is Microsoft Outlook (https://outlook.live.com/owa/), which is accessed through the Firefox browser. When I get an email with an email link it defaults to "mailto", which defaults to the Windows Mail app, which I do not use. How can I make "mailto" default to Microsoft Outlook (https://outlook.live.com/owa/) running through Firefox?

Thanks, Jerry

Okay so I am trying to use facebook messenger's "audio clip" function, but it says it does not have permissions to do so. I verified that my microphone(on my computers end) is enabled and able to be accessed, but when I go to firefox settings there is no option to allow or block facebook from having access. The Tab is just empty entirely with no option to "add a website" or remove one. I attached a screenshot of the error Im getting and the settings page. I reviewed the page "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-manage-your-camera-and-microphone-permissions" and it shows that the website should be listed and I should be able to choose "allow or block" but the website is clearly not listed. Additionally that page references a button that does not seem to exist in my browser which was referenced as "the permissions icon". That icon is not anywhere on my browser or in the settings.

I attached 3 images that hopefully breakdown what I am trying to describe as its difficult to explain without directly referencing the images.

After receiving an email about lockwise absorption, I thought I would try changing my firefox account password. Mainly that was because I do not see any other way to log into another mac system without it. I can sync an ios device with the qr code scan but not another mac system.

So from the account profile I went to Change Password and changed the password to some new securely generated password.

Now in my saved passwords, I see that the new password is saved for "(no username)" account and the old password is still there for my user name.

But when I try to log into FF browser on another mac system with my user name, neither password works. They are both "incorrect".

I am looking for a way to simply delete 100's of cookies, but not all, with out using the very limited "Manage cookies and site data" window. It takes forever to delete 5 or 6 at a time. What is the replacement for when you could type "." and this window expanded to full page and the selection process was so simple?

I have been attempting to use Firefox Private browsing default installation out of the box on netflix, and messages.google.com/web and in netflix's case videos do not play, and google messages page is a blank white page, and also any website that uses facebook comments, that section is not loaded. What is this setting that is causing these behaviors in the private browsing mode, is there a article somewhere that explains in detail how firefox's private browsing mode works?

Someone else's name is showing up as a saved login user name on Twitter.com - Firefox only

I use Firefox (94.0.2) on a Macbook Pro (using MacOS 11.6.1) and went to log in to Twitter this evening and had a strange result. I only occasionally view Twitter using my laptop and I use my email address and a password to log in. When I clicked in the field that reads "Phone, user name or email" I expected to see the Firefox autofill to show my email address, but instead it shows the name "Farha Hussain" (see screenshot image).

I checked my Firefox preferences for Saved Logins and I have my email address and password for Twitter saved there, but no mention of Farha Hussain (my name is Keith). I tried other websites to see if I could recreate the issue and couldn't. I visited the Twitter login form using Chrome and Safari and neither suggested Farha Hussain as a user name, so I think that this is something specific to Firefox on the Twitter website.

To make this an even more unusual situation, the only "Farha Hussain" that I know is a doctor in my city who I have been meaning to contact to see if she is accepting patients, but haven't yet done so. Her name is in my Mac Calendar and that's the only place I can think of on my computer (not in contacts or anywhere else). How this would be connected to a Twitter login is beyond my understanding.

Let me know if you would like additional information or screenshots.
