I have a MacBook Air, and recently purchased a second, to replace an old desktop. Now, on my MacBook a second firefox icon, with a gray square appears whenever my wife is using the new MacBook, even if Firefox is not running on her computer. If I click on the new icon, it takes me directly to whatever site she is browsing in Safari.

Obviously something is being shared, but I've tried unsyncing different things, and it still happens. Is there any way to stop this?

Attached is a screen shot. Thanks

Can I sync my information across accounts and not devices?

I was surprised when I set up a separate Firefox account for work on my personal computer and my personal browsing history was synced to that account. I deleted it as I don’t want any of my personal stuff linked to an account I’m going to use for work.

So my question is, is it possible to create an account and just store browsing data on that account? Rather than the account pulling data from my device?

Firefox is my default browser on iPhone 11 Pro. I use an education app that has a Speech to Text feature to dictate student observations. In a Safari browser this feature is readily accessed by a microphone symbol on the keyboard that comes up in a text window. In Firefox I cannot access the microphone for speech to text. I don't want to go back to Safari as my default browser. Is there a workaround? The image is of the Safari screen in this app. Can Firefox enable a similar access using an icon for the microphone?

I would like to tidy up my history. Previously I tried deleting all history, but I lost my website data too (eg cookies/GDPR preferences).

The alternative seems to be to delete each history entry one at a time, but it's slow.

Is there a better way to delete a lot of history without losing cookies? Or to automatically delete old history?

Thanks

Hey all,

in iOS the share offers in some cases to add something to bookmarks/favourites. Even though you set Firefox as your default browser, using this feature will add a new bookmark to Safari. Any change to change this?

Thanks!

I keep getting these warnings about websites that I have connected to for years. The latest involves OptumRx where I get my prescriptions filled through my insurance. What can I do? This first occurred with a connection to my credit union, now it's happening with another website. The warning message says to notify the websites administrator, but how can I do that when I can't connect to the website? All of these certificates seem to be from country "CZ". Does this mean I've been hacked?

Apple won't 'sell' the Firefox supposedly free iOS app to install. They even try to hide it (you have to search for it at their App store). They have the same sign day after day (no sales of it today, yet other apps are available). They say it only works for iOS 11.4 but you say it works for iOS 10.3 Why can't you give it to us? It seems Apple is nasty on purpose -- that is why so many of my friends now have switched to Android phones. Is their any way to get the App directly from Firefox?
