I am unable to connect to wifi without being logged into my vpn. Getting a browser pop-up saying, "you must log in to this network before you can access the internet", as in the screenshot below which when clicked on leads to the dubious message of "success" on a blank white page.

Knowing nothing I tried two troubleshoots from the web:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1205750 - I followed the instructions above and discovered the proxy settings already set to boolean:false. I restarted etc to no effect. - Next, found this which looks promising: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/connection-settings-firefox But not knowing anything about proxy settings I've come here for advice. I use a VPN along with a bunch of add-on blockers. I'm on a mac with firefox exclusively so please don't suggest Chrome or Safari adjustments. Thank you for any constructive advice!

Under security FF will not show me pw's to other sites that were previously saved. I get a box with my photo and name and it asks for the pw. I yesterday changed it successfully but when using the new pw, it says it's incorrect. I need to know pw's when I need it and it no longer allows me access and doesn't recognize me. Can not continue to be locked out of my own account/browser/computer. Never happened like this before as it always seemed to know it was me. This latest version is not working the same. How can I fix this?

and then I have to start again using my account for synch which a mobile phone (there I never have problems). But why is it resetting by itselves now last time yesterday, first after weeks and then shorter and shorter. I am a great fan of Firefox already using it for 18 years now but this is anoying as I not always has that mobile close to me and therefore all history/accounts are temporarily gone.

Firefox Browser (76.0? &) 76.0.1 64-bit (new behaviour described below presented prior to browser restart to get to 76.0.1) asking for system password just to see stored passwords ... is this a legitimate change to Firefox's Security implementation(s)? Or is there some malware associated with Firefox and / or on my Win 7 Pro SP1 64-bit OS system waiting to pounce on my (Administrator-level) system password? FYI - I do not, and, never have, used a Master Password within Firefox.

The two pages of my website can be found here:

https://www.lightfigures.com/metaphysical-diaries/ https://www.lightfigures.com/spiritual-diaries/

For some reason, and only on Mozilla Firefox (not Explorer or my Tablet) when I click on the links that should bring up pdf files, I am shown a save the file dialogue box. This only happened recently when i made some changes to the WordPress specs, but these changes did not have on effect on other browsers. Any help here would be really appreciated!

Thanks,

This just started happening in the last week or so.

I do not need help with this. I am posting it in the hopes that it might be of value to others.

I was using FF's Login information to view a password for a website, but, when I clicked the "eyeball" to confirm the password, a dialog box popped up... which lead to the loss of over half an hour of my time trying to comply with the request.

For the next half hour or so, it refused to accept my FireFox password nor any of the recent FF passwords as I scoured through my multiple pw storage and recovery options.

I finally logged out of FF and when I logged back in, FF accepted the FF password that didn't work in the view pw dialog window. I went back to that dialog window and the FF pw still didn't work.

I finally noticed that the thumbnail in the dialog window didn't match my FF thumbnail and finally noticed that the dialog box title was "Windows Security"

Windows was asking for my windows login password to allow me to view my firefox credentials within firefox.

Not sure when or how this happened, but I am pretty sure I viewed a ff pw within the last week or so without this requirement.

Hope this info might save time for others who encounter the same request, Beverly Howard

I've been having the same dumb problem for two days now. Is there any way I can attach a screenshot of what Windows Security and Mozilla Firefox are actually doing? Because it tells me to verify my identity by inputting my password/pin in every time I want to copy/paste a password in Firefox!! Or even change my security settings in the browser at all! I want to disable this option...RIGHT NOW!!!!!

I'm trying to debug a web page written in html5 with a serverside php that emails user input to me. The changes are minor aesthetic tweaks that only take a minute to change and then test.

It took me a while to realize that Firefox is not completely clearing the cache unless I exit FF and restart. That's a lot of effort to test one change in an html file, so I would really like to completely clear the cache. Does anyone know what is being left behind and where?

I like to have my Favorites Icon in the exact middle of the screen. I was able to do this by first adjusting the URL vs Search sizes with the drag and THEN with customize add the Favorites icon between them. After a recent update this no longer works. When I add in the icon the URL & Search bars jump back to their original position. They no longer remember where they were set. This is definitely different, and a loss.

Hi,

I have a problem with using a Web-based application.

Before the last FF update to version 76.0, I was able to by-pass the Print Dialog tab after clicking "generate report" link, and instead of automate printing it - save it to PDF file in "download folder" (when I clicked "cancel" button in Print Dialog tab, the <<<yellow stripe>>> appeared at the top of webpage, with the option "save file").

Now, after the 75.0 ==> 76.0 update, the <<<yellow stripe>>> doesn't appear anymore, and I can print the report only by Print Dialog tabl., without ability to save it to my disk drive.

Can I have my "yellow stripe" back? Or do I have to reinstall FF back to version 75.0?

I have just updated to 76.0.1. The saved logins is requesting a password in order for me to see or copy a password that I have saved. At first I thought it wanted my Firefox account password however it is asking for the PC password. Trouble is I don't use a password to log in to my PC, I use a 4 digit pin but it will not accept this. I set a password 5 years ago & have no idea what it is. Is there a way to stop Firefox asking for a password so I can properly access my saved login info?

I just updated my Firefox on my windows 7 laptop (76.0.1) and could no longer stream live video on Youtube. Yesterday I went thru various troubleshooting sites and finally got Youtube streams to work again.

This morning I see that when I watch an MP4, Firefox downloads the video. After download, it ask me What should Firefox do with this file? Default Windows Media Player.

What did I break? How do I have Firefox start video immediately in Firefox?

Thanks!!!

I've used firefox on mac for years no issues. Today for the first time ever it asked me to enter a Firefox password to view my saved passwords in my logins.

I've never (to my knowledge) set up a firefox account before so have no idea what the password is.

Why am I getting this suddenly and how do I disable it so I can see me saved passwords?
