The 'Site Information' that appears informing me about permissions is good to have, but while I'm on a website that uses my microphone, this tiny little tab appears that site in front of my tabs and can't be closed or hidden. I've tried to find a setting for it and can't. It just tells me the same information that the lock icon to the left of the URL tells me. Is there some built-in way to dismiss this? Do I need to try and find an extension for it? I know it's a very minor issue, but.

From two hours seems Firefox lost all saved access to my favourite sites, forums and so on... Checking saved ones I found my new enemy: Lockwise... It wants me to set a principal password (which I never had before), so patiently I followed instruction to set ANOTHER USELESS password I will forget in 10 minutes... but... Once I type a safe password, and confirm this password, an annoying message pop-up and tell me that: "Impossible to change the password"... @#!"$)(%R?!" I never had it, why would you change it? You have to set it? Why it doesn't do it?

Note: I already have a Firefox account and, yes, I made login, and Yes! Sync is working properly, I can login and see saved accesses on my mobile.

MOREOVER: every few minutes I have a despicable pop-up which requires me to set THAT password! And if I try, it tells me it's impossible to set!

AAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGhhhhh!

Thanks to who can help... I'm going to launch something through the window... >_>

Hi all,

I run Firefox 81 from Arch Linux, fresh updated.

My system recognize correctly the smart card reader and when I plug my cards off and on, unfortunately if I try to log into websites using the certificate stored in my card, it simply doesn't find any certificate nor smart card.

As displayed in attached image, firefox shows the smart card reader with the status "not present", not matter if the card is plugged on or off.

If I switch to Windows 10, Microsoft edge recognize correctly certificates on my smartcard and allows my to log in, but, unfortunately, Firefox doesn't find smart card reader neither on Windows 10.

Any suggests? Thank you all in advance for your support, Best regards! Alberto

I am using Firefox 81.0.

Specifically, I am trying to "Enable earning" on the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards shopping site -- https://rapidrewardsshopping.southwest.com/. I have uninstalled all ad blockers and trackers (AdBlocker Plus, Ghostery, Duck Duck Go, etc.) and turned off Firefox Enhanced Tracking Protection for the site. And still I get this warning at the top of the page:

"AdBlock, uBlock, AdBlockPlus or another ad blocker or Firefox Tracking Protection may be preventing you from earning points on your shopping. "

Does anyone know what is going on?

I am running Kaspersky Total Security. Could that be the culprit? What troubleshooting can I do to find the root cause of the Southwest site detecting an "ad blocker of Firefox Tracking Protection"?

Sorry to be a pain but I am still having problems with the "Autofill logins and passwords" setting. Yesterday I had two replies but one was way over my old head. I got so far but then I was at a loss as to which files it would be safe to try and delete so I didn't delete any. The other reply was easier to understand but alas it also didn't work. I tick the "ask to save logins and passwords" and the "Autofill logins and passwords" boxes and after I do this all works fine. However if I leave my Firefox browser for any reason and then re-login to Firefox these settings, along with "Remember History" have all been deleted so that I then have to tick and alter these settings again. Now for the other strange part Firefox on my android phone is synced with my desktop Firefox and I don't have any problems, all logins and passwords work fine. I have up to date Windows 10, Firefox version 81 and the latest TREND maximum anti-virus protection. I have tried exiting TREND and doing a restart of Firefox with add-ons disabled and that makes no difference. Finally I even uninstalled Firefox and managed to install an earlier version and that didn't solve the snag either so I have updated to the latest version again.

I updated a sound file on a web server I have access to. When I reloaded a page with a player to play that file, the old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Go into Preferences, Privacy, manage data, select the domain involved, delete all the data. Reload the page again. Old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Reload again, this time using CMD-R, the hard reload key combo for MacOS. Old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Delete sound file from webserver, CMD-R. Old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Click play button. Old sound file plays.

Right click on sound control, select Save Audio As... Saving file to my computer appears to happen. However, the file saved is only 281 bytes. When I try playing it, audio player yells at me and says that is not a sound file.

Reload the page in another browser, it reports sound file missing.

Sound from old file still plays in FireFox.

First, I went into settings and deleted the data for the domain where this sound comes from.

Reloaded the page,

All I really want is to get firefox to play the new sound file, but its belief in the old file won't let it see the new one. Firefox has stashed the old sound file somewhere on my system and it keeps insisting that is the file I should have.

Well, there is one other thing I want. I would like acknowledgement that this is a bitchable situation. I hate it that tech world always says every problem is my fault. Maybe if the techworld would stop blaming users for problems they might start figuring out how to handle the news they filter more honestly as well.

I'm doing some testing regarding mutual SSL authentication, and when I try to add the .pfx certificate that I generated, I get "The PKCS #12 operation failed for unknown reasons" as the error, and the certificate doesn't get added.

I tried this on another browser, and there was no problem regarding the usage of the certificate, so I can assure the certificate, its data, or the generation process was wrong.

I'm currently using Firefox 80.0.1 64-bit for Ubuntu.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
