I was looking at my event log tracking down one issue when I noticed hundreds of audit failures (outbound connection blocked) in my event log.

Firefox is not even running. I've just started my computer. It's trying to make a connection to google @ 34.107.221.82.

Fortunately something is blocking the connection attempt, but why is Firefox making hundreds of connection attempts when I haven't even opened firefox? How do I stop it?

I looked in task scheduler and couldn't see anything there. Looked at group policy, couldn't see anything there.

Hi everyone.

I am struggling to understand what the problem is, I have a form that has a few drop-down lists and textboxes, but each time I select an option in the drop down list the page refreshes and the textboxes I filled in during the loading disappears, and it only happens in Firefox.

Hey Firefox Agent: Well I just wrote this out in a prior communication, but it got lost when I tried to figure out how to provide: Troubleshooting Information (optional):

Okay, so here we go again. But I am not going to provide: Troubleshooting Information (optional):

Here's the problem: In my Hotmail account, I am getting email "cards" (entries in my Hotmail account) that say: Unusual Sign-In Activity. Now recently, I spent a lot of time finally contacting and spending time with a Microsoft Tech Support agent. This agent helped me change the password on my main Hotmail account. Yet, I am still getting these annoying email "cards" in my Hotmail account. Now, I've analyzed these various email "cards" and I discovered a few things relating to Firefox. Here's what I found on all (5) of these separate email "cards": Sign-in details Country/region: Australia IP address: Please note I eliminated the IP address here because I don't know if it safe to do so or if I will be compromising my computer in any way. In order to share this IP address, I need to know if I am now dealing with an official Firefox support agent. If so and if it is necessary to share the IP address then please let me know in your follow up response. Date: 11/1/2022 4:46 PM (GMT) Platform: Windows Browser: Firefox Today, by the way, is: Sun 5 Feb 23 Time now: 4:16p Est at the time of writing this here line. It is interesting that the email "cards", all of them, have the same date and time: 11/1/2022 4:46 PM (GMT) There's something not right about receiving email "cards" from back in November 2022.

Now if you--the Firefox Support Agent--know what I can do to resolve and stop this annoying problem then please let me know by sending me an email to my email address. You have it from my Firefox account. Gosh, this is such an annoying problem. If you can help then please do so. Thank you.

Is this a Known Issue? If so, is there a fix coming

I can't find any way to add to the list of document types and applications. I know I must have done (because they are different from my wife's options), but now she needs to add one, and there is no immediately obvious way to do this. How do I add a new entry in the list in Settings/General/Files and Applications/Applications?

Thanks,

I have that issue also it shows up anytime I try PNC.com or my health care insurance. The workaround is using Firefox's private window. I removed my saved login and dumped my data, cookies, site data, and cache but that didn't help. That has been a pain restoring other sites I had saved, but that's another story.

  See image for error message.

I only have one window open of Firefox, but multiple tabs open in that window. The primary monitor properly displays that only one window is open, however the second monitor shows that there are multiple windows open. Although this COULD be a Windows issue, I haven't seen it with any other programs, which is why I'm reporting it here.

When I go to a website my username is automaticaly typed in, but my password isn't. And every time I log in it asks me to save the password and i click on 'allow' but it never seems to save it. When I go to saved login data it says that 'no synchronized login data' even though everything is checked correctly in the settings and it works just fine on other devices with this firefox account logged on. How do I fix this?

Targets Red Card, Credit Card, has a login problem which does not occur in Google Chrome. The problem seems to be connected with the sensitivity of the input fields for user-ID and Password. After I fill them in or let Firefox password history fill them in, clicking on Sign-in button erases both fields and goes nowhere. https://rcam.target.com. Been like that for a year. Win 10 latest updates 2H22, removing all add-ons makes no difference. No, I will not reset my Firefox, I have stopped doing the work that was supposed to be done by programmers. You might want to also make it known that stores, banks, and other institutions should double check their work because several major companies like American Express has a non focused security code field for two step logins. The default should be to place the cursor in the input field for the code and make it active. They do not do this.
