I was notified by a 3rd party monitoring service of a potential scam involving my email address, DOB, tel #, etc. To the best of my knowledge my password was not compromised. I contacted the potential site from the alerts which was GTL.Net and after contacting customer support I was told they had nothing to do with GTL. This company appears legitimate but I have had no dealings with them and have no idea whether I am being scammed or not. But they were possibly accessing information which they did not need. Help, I am stuck as to what alternatives are available.

Picture of 1 of 4 notifications (all 4 were the same):

Compromised Email Address & Compromised Phone

Monitored Element Email Addresses: [confidential info]@Gmail.com Monitored Element Phone Numbers: [confidential info] Date Found: 11/10/2020

We monitor online activity to identify the potential illegal trading and selling of your personal information. Unfortunately, we found a match which indicates the information within the red box above is available online. If your password was also compromised, that will be noted in the "Additional Info" section below. Please note, this is the password associated with the site where your email address was procured.

If the “potential site” information is populated, we obtained credible evidence that this is the possible site from which your email address and password, if applicable, were found and we recommend you change your password for this site.

If the "potential site" is not named, you should consider what sites you have associated with the “Monitored Element Email Addresses” and consider changing your password on those sites..

For example, if you set up an account with madeupwebsite.com (fictitious site for this example), you provided your email address to this site and established a password for this site; that password should be changed. See additional comments under “Here's what to do:”, below. We monitor online activity to identify the potential illegal trading and selling of your personal information. Unfortunately, we found a match which indicates the information within the red box above is available online. Below you will find additional information on next steps to take to ensure your personal information is secure.

Additional Info

The following data was found compromised with your email address. First Name Thomas Last Name Garner Email [email]@gmail.com Address 1 [confidential info] City [confidential info] Zip [confidential info] Country us Phone Number [confidential info] Potential Site gtl.net Creation Date 11/10/2020 D.O.B. D.O.B. Found Match IDEMAILADDR,IDHOMEPHONE

Here's what to do: Immediately change the password for the website if identified above. Consider changing passwords for websites or online accounts which may be associated with this email address. If the password is not identified above, that does not necessarily indicate your password is safe. Passwords might not be visible to our monitoring due to encryption or otherwise, yet they could be procured and encryption cracked by parties obtaining information from the dark web. Utilize smart password habits. Re-using passwords across multiple sources may increase your vulnerability to identity thieves. Create unique and strong passwords for your accounts using a mix of special characters, numbers and upper and lower case letters known only to you.

Here's what to do: Ensure the accounts that contain your phone number are secure. Many times, your phone number is used to authenticate your name and account information for websites like Gmail and Facebook.

I noticed today when I opened a new private window and pasted a URL into the address bar, the website seemed to know that I had been there before. So I closed the window, opened up a new private window, turned on the network tool, and tried again. What I saw was on the very first network request, Firefox sent half a dozen cookies to the website!

What's going on here? Does the private browsing session not end when I close the window? Is it supposed to?

Firefox links play controls in different tabs. If I listen to music in one tab and watching video in another, when I pause video, music will stop. But if I want to stop one source to listen another it stops both. It's annoying. Can I fix it?

I have recently updated my Windows 10 OS to OS build 19041.630 (png attached). Since then I have been getting error messages on some (not all) Youtube videos, saying

"Your browser does not currently recognise any of the video formats available. Click here to visit our frequently asked questions about HTML5 video."

Clicking the link brings me to a youtube page saying "Your browser is up to date. You can use YouTube's latest features!". Same goes for when I check my browser's settings-page and-about page. Firefox is up-to-date. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox with a freshly downloaded, latest version 82.0.3 (64-bit). Furthermore I have set all booelans on the "about:config/media.mediasource*" section to true (png attached).

Starting the browser in safe mode with all add-ons disabled does not remedy the problem either. I am a bit lost here, since by now I have gone through every approach I could find on the web.

I also tried downloading the windows Media Feature - Version 1903 (May 2019), but - strangely enough - it says my system is not compatible (now that's a new one; png attached). Also went for the Windows Web Media Extensions from the Microsoft store, yet to no avail either: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/web-media-extensions/9n5tdp8vcmhs?activetab=pivot:overviewtab

The issue seems to only apply to newer Youtube videos. And not all of them either. Here's an example of one that fails (beware, this is in german. Ye have been warned): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcy3N3tZlk0

Above video plays without any problems on the affected machine using chrome, as well as on my work's Mac using Firefox.

Also, here is another, newer video for comparison (just 1h old as of this writing), that plays back smoothly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzlCOg-37hI

Given the problematic video being german and funded by german public broadcast, I have considered local restrictions, but upon checking my IP address I am located firmly in germany (png attached). So there's no odd shadow VPN running.

Please help :'( anyone got any ideas?

Hi. Probably the biggest savings and loan institution in the UK is the Nationwide Building society. 16 million customers and holds £6 Billion in deposits. Their https certificate is issued by ESET. But the information box under the padlock says: 'Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognised by Mozilla'. Why doesn't Mozilla recognised ESET? There are no issues when using MS Edge or Opera. https://www.nationwide.co.uk/

My new laptop had a new install of Firefox when I received it, running on a Windows 10 OS. When I installed my bookmarks from a previous back-up (my previous laptop had died) the new installation assigned wrong web addresses to each and every bookmark title. I've tried everything that I can think of to reload my bookmarks and tried to make sense of the help in your FAQ pages. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox but the same issue occurs. The correct titles for my bookmarks appear in the right place, as I'd assigned in my previous laptop. However all the icons are like an empty, wire world icon and most of them don't activate. The ones that do activate a link take me to an entierly unrelated website. When I look at the individual bookmarks under Bookmarks/show all bookmarks, are all incorrect. Many of my passwords still work but some don't. I cannot bookmark a new page - there is just no response at all. I can't delete bookmarks from my Toolbar or from within the 'show all bookmarks' page. What is going on and how can I recover my bookmarks so that I have a functioning Firefox please? Help! I am wasting time both typing in new searches and in trying to fix this! I have even dismantled my old laptop and plugged in the old C Drive to my new one - the drive and all the old data is there and visible but this install of Firefox running on this machine will not accept even the old bookmark data! All the json files that I have seen have no identifying icon - just a blank rectangle as the icon for the file-type. I've even removed the very few plug-ins that I had and gone back to the original install state for Firefox without any joy! That's about as much fault-finding info this non-techie user can give. Over to you please!

Yesterday I sorted and deleted bookmarks in the sidebar. I also deleted most of the bookmarks in the top ribbon (some were moved to the sidebar). Today all the deleted bookmarks came back into the top ribbon after I visited a couple of new webpages. I have also noticed earlier that some bookmarks that I delete in the sidebar keep coming back again the next time I open Firefox. If these are bookmarks that I have moved, they now appear in both the old and new place.

Ever since I downloaded Firefox, I have been having an issue where when i click on a link from a search engine, it automatically opens the link in a new tab. I've looked around in the settings menu, but I couldn't find any way to alter it. The closest option would be to open link in new window, but I just want to open the link in the tab that I am currently in. I have tried going into about:config although I couldn't find any setting that successfully fixed the issue. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!

Thanks! - T

Hi everyone,

I updated to macOS Big Sur yesterday and now I got display issue on websites that use the Roboto font (like Youtube, Trello, Google Translate, etc.)

As you can see on the attached screenshot, the font is now always displayed BOLD and in a weird way.

I reinstalled the Roboto font on my mac but it did nothing. Everything is working fine with other web-browsers.

Can someone help me ?

Thanks by advance.
