Hello...my question is if I should go ahead and cancel my account? Ive been hacked and they are even changing my settings - as well as in my add ons. They've even added some that I did not choose. They are adding many site addresses and marking them as trusted when they shouldn't be. I even am not able/allowed to clickk on certain boxes...likke when I try to add a proxy. I think they operate in real time. I just think it mighht be best to cancel for my own security. I don't know what they are capable of doing.

I didn't even create my account. But it had my email addresses. So I changed the password immediately. I know it is some sort of organization because I always receive error messages saying "Access Denied", "Contact your Administrator" or "Contact your IT Department."

Are you at all able to possibly help me? I do plan to file a police report, but it would be very advantageous to me if I could offer them more information and hopefully press charges because this has been going on since I moved to the Netherlands 7 years ago. And no antivirus/antimalware works. Even repairs, factory resets and buying new phones haven't helped me either. As you know, there are very strict privacy laws here.

Ok, thank you very much for your time and any assistance or advice.

I am trying to add some screenshots (where it says to add images) and it won't even allow me to do that.

this is relevant to privacy & security, as well as websites

browser fingerprinting is a serious threat to privacy & security.

fenix 123.0 & 1240a1 eventually achieved "non-unique browser fingerprint" in std pbmode as tested via covefyourtracks.eff.org

however, since 124.0 & 125.0a1, browser fingerprinting protection has slid all the way down to "partial." orbot-hostile Brave Andro always achieves a fully "random browser fingerprint." all i want/expect from fenix is a robust & reliable "non-unique browser fingerprint."

my fenix UI P&S is always set to Strict & GPC enabled. i haven't changed anything. no 3rd party cookies. caches cleared, etc, & always uses expert mode orbot proxy.

why this very unwelcomed fenix backslide?

Hello! I noticed FireFox Android now reports my real OS version but FireFox Android has auto spoofed the useragent OS version from version 122? The install was via apk through Aurora app store if that makes any difference. I would like to fix this if its an error, if the spoof has been disabled then it will obviously remain. Thanks in advance!

I've been deleting my saved passwords in Firefox, after migrating to a standalone password manager. It's been anything but easy (deletions are not synced, and bulk deletion process is inconvenient to say the least).

What worries me is that my "deleted" passwords kept coming back as soon as I enabled Sync, until I realised I had duplicate devices in my Mozilla account control panel. I still have, though, some other connected services (Add-ons, Mozilla Support, Mozilla Monitor...).

Is what I've done enough to ensure they're gone? Where exactly are synced passwords stored, and how can I be sure that they aren't lying around in a Mozilla server, awaiting a future data breach? I don't have the time and energy to change 200+ passwords.

Dear sir/madam,

The new sepia reading mode cannot be turned off easily without compromising privacy. If i click to set it to dark mode through controls , the next page is sepia again. But if i use the fast way, by clicking on the icon next to the url, it turns my page from a https to a http. It feels like the feature is not supposed to work like that. Now i think about it, any page that by default is https is darkmode, but any page that is turned into an https is turned sepia or not https anymore. I get that it strains the eyes less and i am certainly not against the feature itself, but i do enjoy pictures and video's in full colour and for me personally, dark mode reads better.

In other words, i love it as a feature not as a default and i don't think it was meant as one, but it cannot be turned off right now.

Kind regards Jen.
