Recently I logged out from Firefox my account, and when I tried to login it asked me to enter the 6 digit verification code from my authentication application. It looks like this comes from the 2-steps authentication method. I don't remember I used this procedure before, and I don't know what is the authentication app. I have this account since 2014 and now I am not able to login to it. Is there is any way to reset the sitting through email? Please help. Note: I created another account in order to be able to ask this question.

I’d appreciate an explanation from someone who knows the background about what happens when websites pass information to each another.

I am using Vanguard’s website, which is the only one (out of those that I use) that prevents me from blocking tracking content and which also forces me to allow social media tracking. If I do not allow this, the website doesn’t work.

I attached two files: a capture of content tracking and a capture of the social media tracking shown by Firefox when I use Vanguard's website.

I would like to understand the following:

1. Is Vanguard the one enabling all of this tracking? If so, do they program it into their website? 2. Is there usually some kind of agreement between Vanguard and the 3rd parties and social media companies that Vanguard passes information to? 3. Is there any financial benefit to a company like Vanguard to do this?

Thanks.

This is super annoying. Apologies in advance. Brand New computer. Do not have access to old desktop presently. Did not export. Not an ideal situation. Downloaded & signed into my FireFox account & can not find my former computers' Bookmarks. Anywhere. Everything else (add-ons) loaded fine & am able to continue but for some reason FF erased everything. I've spent 4 hours reading through countless suggestions to no avail. Why a major company like this doesn't have 24 hour support is beyond me. Ha.

If anyone can help me locate yesterdays (literally) Bookmarks & everything else I'm missing from my FF profile, I would be grateful. Sounds like this is an ongoing issue. Been running FF since 2016. They have to exist somewhere.

All of a sudden after updating to FF 85.0(64-bit), whenever I open a new tab, a warning message of some sorts opens up right below the address bar, is displayed for less than a second and then goes away. I am guessing it is yet another "Hey dumb ass you are not using FF the way we think you should be using it. Get with the program!" type message but it does not even stay on the screen long enough to read whatever the heck it is. What is this this silly annoying message and how do I turn it of permanently?

I'm running Ubuntu 20.10 with GNOME Shell extension Unite which can add the minimize, maximize and close buttons to the top bar and remove the buttons from the title bar of apps. The does not work in Firefox, minimize, maximize & close remain. I'm assuming this is related to Firefox's ability to remove the title bar all together so tabs can be at the top. The Firefox Customize... page allows you to change just about everything else in the UI except these three buttons.

Is there a way to remove Firefox's minimize, maximize and close buttons?

In case it matters I really only care about the Close button (not Close tab) because GNOME Tweaks lets you remove the minimize & maximize buttons from all apps.

Thanks

Firefox 86.0b2, Windows 10 build 19041

I browse in permanent private mode, strict enhanced security.

When I logout of gmail, the permissions icon appears in the Site Info panel, image attached. When I choose X, the icon disappears; it says "a refresh might be necessary". When i refresh, the icon is back. No google cookie is listed in "Cookies and site data"

I refreshed firefox, reapplied my preferences. Problem persists.

I first noticed it this afternoon; it does not happen with Firefox 85, same privacy settings.

Is there something I can do to change this behaviour?

Thanks.

So, I just tried to get onto Twitter today, and for some reason, the site refuses to come up. I get a blank page listed under 'new tab', but no sign of twitter itself. I had to use Tweetdeck to get onto the site at all. Is anyone else having this issue, or know how to fix it? I just updated to Version 85.0 of Firefox to see if that would fix it, but no luck. Including a screenshot of what I'm seeing. If anyone can help, it'd be appreciated. All the other sites I've been to have worked.

Background

I have recently made a modification to my Firefox profile folder to allow the New Tab page to have a background image, but now I am noticing some strange behavior.

When first running Firefox it looks like this.

As you can see, for the sites that don't have a high-quality favicon available, Firefox uses a letter and the low-quality favicon. What I'm pointing out here is that the background for these is transparent.

However, when I open some sites and navigate around, I come back to see this.

There is now no visible letter and the background color for these icons have changed to white. I cannot seem to reproduce this, it just eventually happens after regular use.

This can be fixed by closing the browser and reopening it, but obviously, that's an inconvenience.

Question

Is there a way I can force the icon backgrounds to be transparent, or at least change the solid color to something more fitting to the theme? If possible, please let me know if there is a reason this is happening.

Note: I would rather not resort to setting a custom thumbnail for each of these because I like the way Firefox handles it by default. I'm just looking to fix the "ugly" white background that comes out of nowhere.

Hi ,

I am happy that now I can use Firefox with fillable /saveable pdf files most of the time. Unfortunately sometime I have a problem if later I open the pdf with other software: I filled the first 3 line of https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/cra-arc/formspubs/pbg/t3ret/t3ret-fill-20e.pdf and when I saved it and reopened with Microsoft Edge and Xodo some number are missing in the field "Trust account number". I refuse to use Acrobat Reader. Then I can not change the type of fonts or put bold. Could you please fix it?

Have a nice day

I am using Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS x86_64, Version 84.0.2 (64-bit). I really enjoy using Firefox Relay, but I would like to disable the icon in email fields. When I click on the switch that does so, it refuses to toggle off. I've Googled and browsed the forums here, but can't find anybody that's experiencing the same issue. I thought that maybe an extension that I have is preventing me from toggling off, but disabling every other extension changed nothing.

Hi all,

I am running into an odd issue and I am stumped on what to try next. As you can see in the attached images, I am running into a problem with select dropdowns. The first dropdown is from https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-400/ (Buy Now and click country) and the second is from this Mozilla support page. Long story short is dropdowns are messed up in my default profile. I have done the following to attempt to troubleshoot the issue -

1) Restart Firefox in Safe-Mode without addons 2) Refresh Firefox 3) Delete the Firefox user directory 4) Create a brand new profile and launch into the new profile (This works but for some reason but it can't be my default profile) Default profile fails to work but others don't. If I set my newly created profile as the default, then the new default profile doesn't work. Odd.

Anyway, if anyone has any insight on fixing this issue then it would be great. The dropdowns have been broken for a few months but I have just dealt with them. Thank you for any help over the topic.
