Hello,

we have a problem with one of our email accounts. It seems it was hacked by someone and we are not able to use it any longer. (Gmail account.) The problem is, we are only using Firefox on Android not on an another device for login in facebook etc. The good thing is, that we are still logged in on our facebook account on firefox android. We would like to use our facebook data on another device, but doesn't know the password for facebook and making a new password is not possible, because of the gmail issue...

I checked on android "Tools" -> "Logins" but that is all empty... I know that on desptop it's possible to save the login afterwards by clicking this key icon. Is there a chance to do this also on android? It's very frustrating at the moment, maybe you know also an another helpful information for us.

Best regards yomi

When i go to my local news sites, after about 5 to 10 seconds, i get a congrats page that says i won. I cant go back to the original page using the back button, I can close it, i can type in google.com and go to google. But everytime i go to the site it pops up. Proads or something like that. I clear my history and addons and well everything fox will let me clear. I also ran virus and malware scans. Nothing will stop this..

I use a VPN and turn on all privacy and tracking protections plus incognito in Firefox on iPad but websites still recognise me. I know this because I see my previous searches on those websites.

1. Why is this happening? 2. How can I stop it so that I appear as a new visitor each time? 3. What protection do I really get with a VPN plus Firefox incognito & Tracking Protection?

"Clear private data" does nothing. Only closing Firefox clears it.

If I go to settings and have all the options checked in "clear private data" it does not actually clear anything. Websites still have me logged in. Only if I close Firefox and reopen it does it actually clear all the cache and cookies. This would not normally be an issue, but Firefox takes about 3 minutes to connect to the first website I try to connect to when it is first started. So, having to restart Firefox every time to clear data is a nuisance. I am updated to the latest version of Firefox.

Hello thanks for your time my question is i had received time stamped notification on my android device that said firefox had accessed my camera in background i don't think this is a webrtc query since there wasnt a point it actually asked. It just automatically did it. My question is why did this happen did it take meta data or did it actually take a picture?or a screen shot? when it happened i just opened my gallery up i had not any unusual sites open on my tabs. Jusy the usual ones and this hasnt happened before. Just hoping for some clarity thanks for your time.

I've been compromised! I have tried everything and it won't fix. I get redirected and instructed to make changes. I am so far in over my head I don't know what I'm doing. Firefox was recommended as the resource to help. I have high hopes. I can't just start at point A if I can't get to point A. I've changed passwords and went along with everything I was prompted to do. I can't continue to change things without understanding where I'm at. I think I started an online checking account at some point thinking I was doing something else. I'm not kidding. Can you please help me figure out what to do in simple to understand instructions. Another thing too is when I am instructed to settings and make changes I can't get back to where I was when I originally clicked settings.
