Hi,

The privacy and security settings don't work on Firefox 88 on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS). Many sites will offer the option to 'Login with google/facebook/whatever' rather than creating a new account for that specific site. One really annoying (and dangerous) consequence of 'logging in with google' is that it remains logged in. So for example if I log in to non-google siteX using my google credentials and then hours later open gmail in a different tab I get straight through to my gmail inbox without having to supply any credentials (and indeed any other user of the same machine could do the same). Obviously this highly insecure and dangerous policy of keeping me logged in indefinitely is implemented by Google for their own agenda and has nothing to do with Firefox. The bug in Firefox is that when I clear all data to work around this google problem FIREFOX does not work as advertised. So to try to 'force' a logout from my Google account I go to Firefox -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies & Site Data -> Clear Data, after a few minutes of churning away at my harddrive Firefox informs me that 'Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 0 bytes of disk space.' For good measure I then hit the 'Clear History' button. After this I open a fresh tab and go to gmail and I get straight into my inbox, no credentials required, so clearly Firfox is NOT deleting all cookies etc and is mis-reporting that 0 bytes are being used. So, does anyone know where/how I should report this dangerous privacy bug ?

Thanks MH

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

After migrating from Firefox 87 to 88.0.1 under linux-64 (debian 10), the browser became very slow. Typing has a delay of 2-3 seconds between end of type and appearence on screen. Same for loading pages. Migrating back to firefox 87 is a nuisance since part of the setup is lost and mozilla keeps insisting daily to switch to firefox 88. The articles in "Fix slowness" do not seem to help.

Any suggestion?

My Mozilla occasionally crashes on various websites but this is rarely a big deal and is usually restored without further problem. However, when trying to access my online banking (Co-operative and Smile) it crashes repeatedly after a few seconds, making these sites unusable. Anyone got any ideas why this specific site is a problem and how to overcome it?

My cookie cache is erased every time firefox closes and I only have Ecosia as an Add on. My security setting was strict but I changed it to standard. This had no effect. I'm not very familiar with Linux so a simple explanation would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance

P.S; The crash reports fail to submit. I don't know if this is related.

if an extension requires an 'Access your data for all websites' permission then firefox requires me to choose either allow this extension to steal all my sensitive data, or not to use the extension at all.

for such cases, chrome allows me to choose when and where i prefer to allow the extension to see these data and when and where to restrict it from accessing them: Site access Allow this extension to read and change all your data on websites you visit:

  • On click
  • On specific sites
  • On all sites

does firefox allow this somehow? i'd prefer to have an option to restrict such access in some cases by clicking the extension button, in some - by white or black listing specific sites (mostly whitelisting), and for some cases - do not restrict.

I have already: Ruled out fixes for very old Firefox versions, still online. Tried every preference, library, and bookmarking tool in menu. The three dots does not provide that choice. (It is the FIRST thing I tried.) Used the terminal to sudo apt-get purge Firefox and Used terminal to sudo apt install Firefox. Repeated above procedure after signing out, to stop any starless syncing. Signed back in. I had it when this computer was new, and I then installed Firefox, less than a year ago, Ubuntu canonical 20.04. Reinstalling should have the quick-bookmark star as I had when first installed. I have not: Selected "remove data from device". Next solution that actually works?

Hello!

I perform some translations through address bar searches, which use the URL of a translation engine (Bing/Google translate).

One thing that I couldn't solve is how to encode newlines. Sometimes, the text to translate includes newlines. When I copy/paste, the address bar flattens the text, entirely removing the newlines. For longer texts, this makes reading the translated text more difficult, because the result is a single, very long, line.

I've tried pasting "%0A" and "\n", but they are encoded.

Is there any way to encode a newline via copy/paste into the address bar search URL?

Thanks.

In Google Chrome, if you fill in the first letters of a website you want to visit, the browser will autocomplete the name and give you the option to press the tab key and search that website. Why doesn't FF have this function?

I know there is a system with keywords, but this is less efficient I think. You have to set up the keyword and then remember it. I don't think the keyword system itself is bad, but I don't see why there couldn't be a 'tab to search' function with all possible websites, in addition to the keywords system.

I have a problem with enabling two-step authentication for my Mozilla account. There have been several questions regarding issues with two-step authentication, but none of them applies to my case, so I started another one.

When I try to enable 2SA, there are seemingly no problems. When I scan the QR code and enter the 6-digit security code, I don't get the "invalid two-step authentication code" message. I do get the 8 10-digit recovery codes. After I enter one of them I get a prompt saying "Two-step authentication enabled" (see attachment), but nothing else happens. It seems like the process is stuck here and isn't completed.

I have tried setting 2SA from my profile settings (https://accounts.firefox.com/settings) too, but when I logout and login again, it says Not Set.

I wouldn't normally use 2SA at all if it hasn't been made mandatory for logging into Add-ons (addons.mozilla.org). Now, I'm locked out of my Add-ons account and can't access my extensions!
