Hello,

My bank's website has a 2 page verification process for logging on. The first page is for the User ID and the second page is for the password.

Until just a few days ago, I could enter the first letter of my User ID into my bank's website login field, and FF would auto-fill the rest. Now when I enter that first letter, nothing happens. I then have to look up this info before I can continue. Luckily, the second page (for the password) is working just fine.

If I remember correctly, there has been a recent FF update. This new update may be the source of this issue.

Please help!

Thanks, Andre'a

Firefox will not stop popping up the google sign in pop ups even though it is disabled in my google account and block all pop ups is set in my FF settings! I can use chrome to go to the same websites,eg. ebay,youtube, etc. and no pop up for sign in comes on but when I use firefox it happens every time eben though the setting is disabled in my google account. I am forced to use chrome and a google account to access coinbase because firefox is not able to log into their site or apps but I use FF for everything else and this pop up is very annoying! Is there a way to make firefox obey the settings so it will stop this behavior?

Hello,

There is a very long list of these that are associated with my account. I've imported my Firefox settings from computer to computer for at least twenty years. I may have made mistakes that caused me to pick up malware, and want to fix this, and some of these certificates have expired.

How do I know what to keep and what to either delete or edit trust regarding?

Is there any way to quickly and easily have all of them assessed at once?

Thanks very much!

Hello!

Whenever I join a conference/meeting, web version of Teams asks for camera and microphone in one window, e. g. "Allow camera and microphone? yes/no". I can, of course, press No, then press "Yes, continue without audio" in Teams, and then allow microphone, but that's really annoying.

Is it possible for firefox to ask it in two separate dialog window? 1. Do you want to grant Teams access to microphone? - yes 2. Do you want to grant Teams access to camera? - no

I saved my login information for several accounts in the Firefox (desktop) built-in password manager. Then I got Firefox on my phone, found out passwords aren't protected as well on the mobile version, so I turned off sync then removed them from my phone. Later I turned sync back on thinking that it would just sync my tabs and, if it did do anything with passwords, it would copy my logins from my computer to my phone instead of removing them from my computer. That was yesterday, today I needed one of those passwords (randomly generated so I don't remember it) so I went to my saved logins on desktop and they were all gone. Is there any way to recover them?

Dear,

I need to recover my Mozilla (Firefox) account on my computer after this latter crashed. Unfortunately, apparently I don't have the good password. Probably I used an automatically generated password which I don't remember.

I still have my account connected on my Android smartphone, but I can't access the account details (no way to recover my password or change through this device?!), and I can't export my bookmarks. Also, apparently all my identifiers and passwords were not synced on my smartphone :-( Hence somewhere all my precious information are available, but stupidly enough I can't access it anymore and resetting the password warns me that I might (is it even a certainty or a possibility?) lose everything. It seems that I cannot even produce a revovery key (to reset pwd without losing data as mentioned in the Help pages) as I can't connect on a desktop browser anymore (but well on my Android version). I am lost and just stupidly blocked - this is SO frustrating, I initially thought it would be a good idea to put everything in Mozilla - well...

Is there ANY way to actually recover my account without losing data on my desktop Firefox, given I still have access to the email account associated to the Mozilla account (and to the original emails from the creation of my accounts) and I still have access to my Firefox account on the Android app but this one doesn't seem to allow to do anything interesting in my case??

Thanks a lot!

Hi, I am trying to create a new account on a website with standard email, password, and retype password fields. I have checked the Suggest and generate strong passwords box, yet Firefox (v109.0 on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS) is not suggesting a password. I have tried left clicking and right clicking on both password and retype password fields to no avail. Help?

Hello, I will try to describe my issue. Today I, as always, turned on my computer and just the same way as always opened firefox to browse the internet. Then, I found out that im logged out of almost every site like Facebook, YouTube, Gmail, Twitch, Amazon but some of them remained logged in. Those logged-out sites asked me to accept cookies which I have done a lot of years ago. It was such a peculiar situation, because all of the passwords were saved and I could just log in again. I didn't find any unauthorized loggings. I wonder if it's a random situation or somebody is executing it. Do you have any idea how would that happen? Best regards

Hi, I am a photographer, and am currently working on my website. I don't know how this happened, but I noticed a mysterious Pin It icon on my site early January. I had a Pinterest account (unused), which I deleted, thinking I could get rid of this pesky thing. Now I have no Pinterest account, but 2 Pin It icons. Bizarrely, they only show up on Firefox, not Chrome. (I use Firefox 99% of the time.) Could you please advise me? Thank you very much, Anne Saint-Pierre
