Hi. I enjoy using Firefox and support Mozilla, but I am fast starting to lose patience. I do not use Google and try to avoid anything to do with it. I set Duckduckgo as my browser and remove Google from the list of search engines. Every time Firefox updates, I find that my settings are changed without my knowledge and my search engine defaults to b***** Google! Then I have to waste time changing settings again. Can I stop this from happening or do I just have to move away from Firefox? Thanks a lot. Des

Why doesn't the dialog for Autoplay fully render in Preferences?

In Firefox 78.0.2, the dialog for Autoplay looks ghostly. All other dialogs (e.g., Location, Camera, Microphone, Virtual Reality, etc) are raised and display as expected. It seems that the dialog for Autoplay does not raise to the front. It is rendering behind other elements.

It's faux modal window...a "fauxdal".

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open the "Privacy & Security" section of the Preferences (about:preferences#privacy)
  2. Click on "Settings..." button for Autoplay

Screencaps uploaded; one showing normal, expected modal display (for Location Permissions), the other showing the "fauxdal" condition. In the latter, the screencap was marked up to draw attention to the ghostly window corners and title. Notice the I-beam cursor in both images, as it was positioned over the Search field.

After updating to the latest Firefox version, Firefox messed up my older version and I couldn't recover my previous settings and quite a lot of passwords. It is very tedious to go through the whole rigmarole again. Will I recover my old settings and passwords if I reset to the previous running version? Thanks and cheers.

I was upgraded to the latest version and since then I can not retrieve ANY of my old/current passwords. I have to log in each password to use sites and when I try to look at the LOCKWISE page it is empty. I did not have a master password set prior to this upgrade so when I tried to change to a new password it does not allow me to change it.

WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?

I know the passwords are there but why is Firefox doing this?

Firefox Autofill Frustration, Am I doing it wrong?

I love the AutoFill feature, with some exceptions. And I am hoping someone can offer a solution, even if it is to tell me I am doing it wrong.

It seems like others would have a similar problem, and it is sort of difficult to explain, although I'd think there would be a simple solution. Anyway, let me try to explain...

When I use the autofill option, it is usually while placing an order, or filling out my account details for whatever shopping site, or gaming profile, etc. But I have multiple addresses I need to consider when I am shopping, and need to send the order to one or the other, instead of my regular address. Like placing an order that I want sent to my mother's address.

As anyone knows, when you change something, like the address, state, zip or phone number, you end up with several autofill entries. Like this...

First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but I can't see it in the pop-up) First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but my work address, which I also don't see) First Name, Last NAME First Name, Last Name FIRST NAME, Last Name First Name, Last Name

These pop up, all valid options, the next time you start filling out a form. Which is great, because ONE of them is the one you would like to use, but there is no way to see WHICH one points to the one you need. The first one is my normal address, phone, etc, but the autofill pop up doesn't show you anything other than the name, the second is my work, but I can't see that it is... only the name. The third might be my mom's address, but again, I have no idea because only my name is shown...etc etc etc.

Is there a better autofill plugin out there, one that lets you label them? Or some way to show more than just the name? Just showing me the same name 12 times, without any way to know what the right one to use is, kinda makes the autofill feature useless for me. If I only had one phone, or one address, etc, the feature would work great. But since I have about a dozen addresses I routinely use, each with their own unique state or zipcode, or phone number, has rendered autofill useless unless I only need the common "top" one.

I hope I've made it clear what the problem is. And no, using a unique firefox profile for each is not the answer. I'd have to log out/off firefox and switch profiles several times in one shopping or gaming session, which would only make the solution highly annoying.

It would be nice to find a plugin, or any other solution, that would let me label, or differentiate each from the other when the autofill pop-up gives me the option to fill the form.

Like... Home - First Name, Last Name Work - First Name, Last Name Mom's - First Name, Last Name Gary's - First Name, Last Name

Anyone have a solution, or feel my pain? Or am I simply doing it wrong?

ANY help is greatly appreciated.

Hi everybody,

Is there a way to force a website to always open in a designated container?

E.g.: I would like Netflix (and other websites that use Widevine) to always use their own container for privacy reasons.

Thank you all for your support.

OK guys, here is the question.

Lets say I installed some extension, it seemed harmless, did it job just fine. I tried functionality and then just removed extension from Firefox.

two questions here: 1) Is it possible that extension was spyware? (I suppose the answer is always "could be"). 2) Can it do any harm after you removed the extension even if it was malicious software?

Thanks for your help everyone.

Hi! I run several messengers in Firejail (basically because they come with no source code available) to limit their access to my system and personal files. The downside if this approach - processes running in Firejail can't access FF folder and pass URLs I click on. I can grant full access to ~/.mozilla folder and that's fixes the problem, granting full access to all my browser data as well. What the particular absolute minimum files/folders I mast leave accessible for messenger process to be able to click on links and get pages opened in current FF session? Thanks.

I used Malware today to scan my computer. When the scan was finished, Firefox said it had blocked Malware from my passwords, but gave me the option of unblocking the passwords which I did. Later I realized the scan had already run.

How can I reblock the passwords?

If Malware can run without access to passwords, why did Firefox ask if I wanted passwords unblocked?

Any further information you can give me about such issues would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you - Sue Bryant
