All was good until sometime today. FF 84.0.2 W10 up to date. Previously, when browsing FB marketplace, i could send a message about an item for sale. That send message button is now greyed out. The messenger button on the top right of my screen used to open a dropdown/popup that gave me a summary of my messages. That no longer works. I have been thru all kinds of settings randomly on FF and FB to try and correct the issue but i cannot figure out what is going on. I have tried turning Ublock on and off but that has not helped either. The only access i now have to messenger is to open it separately. I have not changed any FB settings. I did not change any FF settings myself other than trying to find out what could be doing this and exploring ublock for possibilities as that seemed the most likely culprit. Can anyone shed some light on what the issue is.

Office 365 cookie issue

I have configured FF to block all cookies under "Browser Privacy" the custom setting allows "Choose which trackers and scripts to block. and I selected "all cookies". Knowing that all cookies will be blocked I logged into office 365 and allowed manually cookies through "view page info" I then selected "set cookies" to allow expecting full access to office 365 mail, but this did not occur. What happened is I logged into office 365 and could see the icons and my login name but could not read the mail.

Office 365 gave the message "we couldn't sign you in please try again" yet I could see my log in name and the office 365 icons for mail, calendar etc.. just not the actual data. If I allow cookies in Browser privacy (which i take it allows cookies always) it woks.

I bring this up because it seems like something is missing in cookies that is not represented in FF.What is the difference between browser privacy cookies and allowing it through view page permissions? Can anyone offer an explanation?

Hello!

I recently purchased a new laptop that has biometric capabilities and was very excited to implement it into my Mozilla for an even more secure browser. Come to find out (so I think), that the touch ID can only be used for "sensitive" information like credit cards, etc. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, or I'm looking in the wrong place but what I would like to do is use touch ID on all of my autofills, even something as minor as a Webkinz account. I do know of the primary password, but obviously it's much faster and secure to use a fingerprint.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance!

hi guys. My computer was running slowly, so I ran the reset programme as you recommend. You say that this doesn't affect stored passwords - but I've lost every single one of mine. and worse, it doesn'tseem to be saving any new ones either.

What are the security risks of lauching -no-deelevate option as suggested in this Article (link)

About this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/windows-administrator-launcher-process-error-fix#w_how-to-verify-the-problem

In order to solve the drag and drop issue under win7, article above suggests "Start Firefox Using the -no-deelevate command" but doesn't clarify what would be the risks on doing it.

I mean, the security risk is only mentioned in the next suggestion "partial workaround", saying it would be rather than lower security by using -no-deelevate instead, but also gives no information about what risks would be.

So I would like to know:

1) If I decide to use -no-deelevate option, what sort of risks I'm taking?

2) To a no fool internet user, is it worthy to take?

This is relevant for me cuz re-enable UAC makes user have to confirm dialog box to everything at all in Windows despite logged as full right administrator.

Nor less annoying are the other option "copy and paste" "save as", putting me under ridiculous situation of needy to use Opera browser only to be able of drag IMDB links and images into a folder, then backing to Firefox for everything else.

You can drag an image even to a folder in an USB external drive (OMG-WTF)

Thanks you all.

long story short, if I go on amazon.com it redirects me amazon.com.br without asking me, no pop-ups, no "amazon wants to know you location" it just looks at my IP and send me away, also, if I do something like amazon.co.uk it will prompt me for "would you like to be redirected to amazon.com.br?" and I don't want that either, if I could go to amazon.jp it's all the same for me

note: 1: I used amazon as an example, this happens with eBay, YouTube, Bing, reddit, facebook, PayPal, or any other website that is available on a .br domain 2: I don't want to use a VPN or any Proxy server, I'm not rich, I can't pay 129.99 a year for a browser extesion, and there are free ones, but they bring my 120Mb/s connection to a grinding halt 3: this is most likely my ISP / IP being broadcasting my location without my consent, while some websites do ask me to allow it, my IP most of the time will basically lay open on the table and tell the website "if you wanna look, it's there" 3.2: this is especially annoying with the advertisements saying stuff like "80% of gamers in [USER_CITY] love this RPG" and I'm like, really? a backwater christian town where only 20% of the population have TVs and 5% of those 20% have broadband connection?

in short, I don't want any websites to know where I am

Within the past 24 hours there's been a Firefox update installed which, as usual, has happened quietly and without issue, so I know that my browser is safe and up-to-date. However, today I headed to one of my favourite sites - Imgur - only to find a blank page. Well, not entirely blank - all the words and frames and bits are there but no photos or videos - nothing visual. I had to ignore it during the day and then this evening I asked Imgur if they knew what the problem was. They replied: "It looks like your ISP may be blocking access. I was able to confirm your ISP as TalkTalk which has had this issue occur in the past. I'd recommend reaching out to them directly or using an alternative connection to the site, if possible."

Fair enough - it's TalkTalk's problem - or is it?

Soon afterwards I looked at a comment in Reddit and they gaive a link to Imgur - so, not really expecting much, I clicked on the link. Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to i.imgur.com. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified."

Please could you add your comments so that I can be assured that it is indeed my server's fault and not a browser problem - so that I can get to the bottom of this unwanted security query.

I wanted to transfer my logins and password from one Computer to another and I managed to do so by copying the logins and Key4 files stored in the profile folder. Now, I am concerned about how easy this process was. Does it mean if my computer is hacked and those 2 files stolen, anyone will be able to access all the websites where I am registered?

Thank you
