Hi, I planned to block my users from installing extensions/add-ons. I found an article that might be the answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1308646). I tried to create a simple policy (below), but somehow it does not work (I can still install any add-on/extension). What is wrong with my script? I'm using Firefox ESR 78.11.0 (64-bit) by the way.

My "policies.json" looks like this:

{

"policies": {
  "ExtensionSettings": {
    "*": {
      "blocked_install_message": "Blocked!",
      "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/"],
      "installation_mode": "blocked"
    }
  }
}

Sincerely, Jonathan

Hello,

I cannot save my credit card number in Firefox, in Settings I don't even have the option to save them and the directions in the Firefox help don't work. #2 below there is no Forms and Autofill section in the settings let alone a credit card option.

  1. Click the menu button Button and select Settings.
  2. Click the Privacy & Security panel and scroll down to the Forms and Autofill section.
  3. Click the checkbox next to Autofill credit cards to turn it on, or uncheck the box to turn it off.

Any help to what's going on would be great.

Firefox 107 (64-bit) on Windows 11

Thanks, Luke

suddenly today I can't login into any of my gambling websites. I have tried to turn shit off but still can't get in. It all works on google, guessing they are tracking me more/easier. I have used Mozilla for years. Please don't email me how to fix it. Just fix it or I will be forced to switch.

I am trying to add a second security key (Yubikey 5) to my 2FA accounts on Yahoo and Google. The first key was added a year ago. No problems. Now I try to add the second key I get a message from Firefox saying to continue or cancel, but only find a cancel button. If I press Cancel, operation fails. If I press Continue or Cancel in the website dialog (outside of Firefox message box) it also fails. I attach screen shot. The error is similar for both Yahoo and Google, but slightly different. I show the Google one.

Firefox 107.0, MacOS 11.7.1

Hello, I would like to point out that the window or the password for accessing the mozilla firefox browser can be circumvented simply by selecting the "Cancel" button or by clicking on the red cross.

In other words it is useless, whereas before it worked perfectly.

Hope you fix this problem soon.

I would like to temporarily disable the password manager before the computer goes to sleep or I leave it on in an active state and walk away from it for a short time. I do not want to exit FF but would like to keep all tabs open. As of now, if the computer sleeps, and upon awaking, I try access a password protected website FF will fill in the password and will not require a Password Manager Primary password. I would like FF to require the Primary password up awaking from the sleep state, and also be able turn off the password manager while the computer is in an active state.

The Markup published an article yesterday revealing how some of the biggest tax preparation websites out there are passing confidential information back to Meta/Facebook.

It appears that this is something that the Facebook Container plugin would block, but I wanted to double-check and make sure.

Since last Friday I haven't been able to access any of my bank accounts with US Bank. I can access these accounts through my US Bank phone app and through Chrome when I use it on my laptop as browser. When I called US Bank IT they could not help because the phone app and Chrome worked. What's happening with Firefox? I have used it for years to get to these accounts, and now I am unable to.
