It appears web sites can track my activity on their site. How do I make it so a given web site can't track me? Does Firefox have a setting that makes it more difficult to track me on a given web site? I've seen where a VPN, not sure what that is, can be of big help. How do I initiate a VPN and are there free VPN's? When I visit this particular site it states, "from your site login activity" and goes on from there what they want to do. How do I make it more difficult for a web site to be able to track my log in activity? Will a VPN solve this problem? Or, does Firefox have various accessories that can do the same thing? I know deleting cookies with this particular site does not solve the issue for me. Can someone help? Thank you.

Hello moz://a team,

Personally, I really like Firefox and have never encountered a problem with it. However, one day I wanted to another row of bookmarks on my homepage, so when I did, I saw that the the new row was already filled with bookmarks and i didn't remember adding them. To investigate I changed my homepage to display 4 rows and found and it too was filled with bookmarks of random websites and I had never added. There was also a lot of duplicates of the same website. I spent hours deleting the hundreds of bookmarks. and then the next week, there was another wave of more and more bookmarks. I've checked in the settings of Firefox but couldn't find an option to stop Firefox from adding more bookmarks without my permission. It may just be a bug, or that something is wrong. If there is an option that stops this but I've missed it please do tell me about it. And if there isn't one then please add the option in an update, please!

Hi everyone,

Last Saturday, I was able to sign in to Firefox Add-Ons Firefox Add-Ons and submit a pre-release of an add-on I'm working on. But today, I'm being forced to enable 2FA to simply log in to the site. I don't want to enable 2FA, I just don't need it. Can someone explain me why is this happening ? Can I just log in and submit my add-on's update ?

I've tried to sign in two different MacBooks (M1 12.1 and Yosemite 10.10.5), using two different Firefox versions (99.0.1 and 78.15.0esr). Also, I haven't enabled 2FA in my personal account.

Thanks in advance.

The issue concerns the Flatpak version of Firefox on Linux. This issue only happens when I'm connected to my VPN router. For info, I'm using Fedora 35 Silverblue. This issue happens on Fedora 35 or Fedora 35 Silverblue. I been using Fedora since version 33 and such problem existed back then.

When connected to my VPN provider via my router, trying to start a Firefox Flatpak instance takes minutes upon minutes to load. I'm guessing it has to do with DNS query's Firefox does on start but I'm not sure. All I know is that when I connect directly to the internet without being hehind my VPN, Firefox loads in a split second. When I'm using the RPM version of Firefox supplied by Fedora, I do not have such issues even when connected to my VPN. This issue only affects Firefox Flatpak when behind a VPN. I tried opening the AppImage version of Firefox while connected to my VPN, and once again, it loaded within a few seconds. I been having this issue for many years and only figured out recently that my VPN connection was causing a problem.

I would like to point out that the Flatpak verion of Microsoft Edge and Chromium do start without any issues even while I'm connected to my VPN provider...

Every time I close Firefox, whether normally or using Allt-F4, there is a short pause (1 - 2 seconds) then around 20 - 30 seconds of intense disk activity which locks everything else on my PC (Win 10 pro 64). If I hard shut down the pc (ie, switch off the power) there is no adverse effect on firefox after restart, so whatever it's doing is apparently unnecessary anyway. How do I cure this, it's irritating me intensely - enough to seriously consider using another browser

When I go to download a ZIP file, it will always attempt to download the file directly rather than letting me open it with WinRAR. When I go into the browser settings I see that some other file types have options to choose how they're handled, but there's no entry for ZIP files. I've tried refreshing my Firefox install and yet the issue still persists.

I used to have this option before I reinstalled Windows a while back (where I kept my files but not programs). I don't know for sure that that's what caused this to start, but the timing would line up.

Hello!

I always use private browsing so I thought that my history was totally not being saved, but discovered recently that when I started to type within the search field, that many of my past searches were listed in the search field with the type highlighted in purple. I had to manually go in and delete all of these past searches. I don't want any search history to be saved. Is there a setting in preferences that I'm somehow missing? Why is Firefox saving these past searches if I have it set to Always Use Private Browsing?

Thank you!

Amazon.com works on Firefox on my second desktop computer and on my iPhone. It does not work properly on my primary desktop, this one It does work on my desktop using Edge. Everything in Amazon.com works on this desktop except I cannot view my previous orders, the link in the upper right corner ""returns and orders." It begins to load but the orders do not load. I cannot see any of them.

I uninstalled Firefox, ran Ccleaner to clean the registry, then it's Health feature, I probably should have restarted after doing that.

I installed a new download of Firefox twice; it fails.

Not sure when it began, probably before the current version, i.e. it's not related to the latest update. When exiting, everything seems fine at first but then Crash Reporter pops up. If I try to restart my Windows/PC with FF open, the restarting becomes blocked by Firefox, so I have to cancel the restart and deal with Crash Reporter first.

The same crash happens in Troubleshoot Mode.

I don't have any special security software (aside from Malwarebytes with real-time protection disabled).

Latest reports: bp-3e00592e-2756-43bf-9642-01b550220502 bp-2435de7c-8279-4d85-b151-b94380220502

Signature is different (almost) every time but as far as I remember no crash felt any different from the two crashes above. For example: bp-093ec6db-d0e2-4f05-8dbd-e03b50220429 bp-47c1b14c-cba2-4007-9f53-089fc0220429 bp-f4ca1090-d760-4209-a47f-8d40e0220429 bp-4a506f38-75ac-4f62-b4bc-324f00220429 bp-d9a19762-4234-450e-82ed-d41940220429 bp-1b0e9da0-29e6-4107-ad7e-ed77f0220429

Hi,

i am having a rather weird and persistent issue. When I try to open a specific website, namely www.westend61.de, this Firefox tab crashes, as seen in the provided screenshot. With a normal website this wouldn't bother me so much, but this page is the main page of the company I work for, and therefore I and potential customers must be able to reach it. That being said, this does not necessarily have to be a Firefox problem, the issue could also be on the server side. But the website works on other computers, other operating systems and other browsers. As far as I know, the website works fine, this computer using this browser being the only exception. I worked my way through the Firefox support page:

- checked for newer firefox version - checked for newer compatible MacOS version - checked for newer graphics driver - disabled all firewall, anti virus software - started firefox in Safe Mode - reinstalled firefox & deleted all profile data - disabled hardware acceleration - set webgl.disabled to true - again safe mode

The tab crashes every time. This computer is an old End 2015 iMac running Monterey and the newest Firefox. - More information can be found in the troubleshooting information and the crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bb11e42d-9fc9-4061-b89c-4c6400220503

Thank you very much.

This sounds like it's a Meetup problem, and in fact it may be, but now I am having doubts.

The problem is that I can't upload photos to a Meetup event. (This will mostly just be a problem for Meetup organizers.) When I click on "Save photo", nothing happens. No error message, nothing. It's as if the "Save Photo" button has been disabled. Firefox is my browser while I access Meetup.com, and I have the latest and greatest version of Firefox.

I contacted Meetup and they haven't been able to solve the problem; they suggested that I clear my cache and my cookies and try again, but I get the same result. HOWEVER, when I go into Microsoft Edge, I can upload photos with no problem. So I have a work-around: use Microsoft Edge to upload photos. So my question to you centers around: why does this work perfectly in Microsoft Edge, but it doesn't in the latest version of Firefox?

To test the possibility that it's a bug on my personal desktop computer, I went to the public library and tried the same experiment, with the same result. So I don't think it's problem with my personal desktop computer.

One other piece of information: the exact same thing happens (failure to update photo, that is) when I have the photo open in another application (Photoshop), even if I try to "save photo" to Meetup in Microsoft Edge. Then when I close the other application (Photoshop in this case), Microsoft Edge lets me "save photo."

I know that Firefox really doesn't want me to try to revert to a previous version, and it makes me nervous too, but I am suspecting that something in the latest Firefox version actually introduced a problem. (Or maybe triggered a Meetup bug of some sort; I still haven't located the problem.) I've been on Meetup.com for years, I've had Firefox for years, they've worked together to upload photos in the past for years.

If you want to get into the details, below, for what it is worth, is my initial question to the Meetup support people (with whom I am still in a conversation).

- - - - - - - -

I can't upload a photo for my event. In fact, I cannot upload a photo for any event at all. I deleted a couple of photos and an album because maybe our group had too many, but that didn't work. I can't even upload a photo that I had previously uploaded to a different event, so I don't think that the problem is with the photo itself.

Here's what happens. 1. Edit the draft of my meetup. 2. Click on "upload photo." The photo is 1827 x 1009 pixels, total size 63 KB. 3. I click on "Upload photo", then in "add photo" I click on "upload photo" again. I browse for the photo and select it. 4. The "crop your photo" screen appears, with the selected photo in it. It's already the size I want, so I click on "Save Photo".(Cropping doesn't help either.) 5. Nothing happens. No error message, nothing. The only think I can click on is "cancel," which takes me out to the previous screen. - - - - - -

I have tried this several times over a few years, and have never got it to work I know it must be something I am doing wrong because if it was a glitch or bug, it would have been fixed by now. Usually I need to do this if I need to reinstall the OS, (Windows and Linux), or a new pc, the usual, but this time I had a major crash, so I'm starting over.

Anyway I have signed in on my pc to my FF account, and went through the menu to turn on sync, and I get to the page where is says, "when ready click next to display the QR code". I get my android out, open FF, sign in, click the "Scan" button, the FF scanner opens,, I open the QR code on the pc, (I have also went to the website to get a QR code). Then either way I scan the code, and get an errror msg "Must scan from inside FF". I am scanning from inside FF, with the FF QR scanner.

I don't uinderstand how of the 20 or more times I have tried to do this, I can't get it to work. I don't understand how I screw up every times, over a few years. But I also know as I said, if it was a bug MOzilla would have fixed it by now. Usually I give up on that and just log into both the pc and the phone, close both browsers and reopen them and it will go ahead and sync.

But not this time, I am unable to get it to sync for anything. I've been working on this for 3 days now, and at this point I'm confused, I don't remember what I have and have not done. Let me add, and I don't know if this will make a difference, I don't think so, but what do I know? Originally this all started, when I had to reset my password. I tried for 4 days there to get a recovery code to work. (The following is just to describe what I've done, and is not a second question) I had one downloaded, and saved on my pc. But no matter what route I took to go through the reset process, exactly as described in the help file, I never could get a place to enter the code. I read every article I could about it, and finally it seemed easier to just reset the password and resync than try to get the code to work.

Which is why I am sitting here, desperatly needing to sync my data, but unable to. If anyone can tell me what I need to do I will appreciate it. If you need any more information, just let me know.

I'm running Firefox 99.0.1 on Ubuntu 22.04. Recently (I think since I updated to Ubuntu 22.04 about a week ago), Firefox has been refusing to show me file upload dialogs. When I click a button that's supposed to give me one, nothing happens.

This has been happening with: - The "attach files" button in Gmail - A file upload button on Gradescope (website for managing homework assignments) - File -> Open File... and Ctrl+O.

Dragging and dropping a file onto an email in Gmail does attach the file -- it's just that the button doesn't work.

I've tried restarting, and I've tried running Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode -- so far nothing has fixed the problem. What else should I do?

I had been using Firefox browser for awhile, but because of playback performance issue, I have to using another browser just for video playing, especially for 4K video.

Compared to Edge, Firefox seems taking more resources to playback the YouTube video and more heat. When look at the Task Manager, the Video Processing is 0%, and GPU is running significantly more resources on '3D'.

This bug occurs very randomly, but it seems there have few things in common.

- Occurring on domain level, one domain at once. For example, if Youtube.com stuck, any sub address including each video page is not loaded. Other website and whole browser works fine. - Other program on same PC is not affected, too. - Which page is stop loading is completely random. It might be happen only on a popular, feature-rich site like amazon, google, but not sure. - The timing is also random. Maybe after waking PC up from sleep, but not sure. Frequency of occurrence is once every 1~5 days. - The workaround without restarting browser is 1.)switching to other container tabs(strangely), 2.)opening website on private window. Disabling all the addon manually didn't help.

Since it's randomness, I didn't have any logs about this issue.
