I honestly don't know. The only thing I do know is that this problem only appeared after the option to make and sync an account was offered. I would at least like to know if there is a way to access the password to my main email as that is a business email I cannot afford to lose. At most, I would like to have all those accounts back. Also, I would like to ask that you forgive the account name, as I was very frustrated when I made it. I have a lot to lose from this.

I use Mint 19.3 and is attached to a hardware product Winston Privacy which due to lack of sales the piece of Hardware is no longer available but the Hardware I have has a Lifetime License in the firmware. My point is the tracking that Mozilla does seems to be very high with Mozilla even though I have turned off the tracking with Firefox. As you can see with the attached file 'ScreenShot1' Pie graph Domain 'incoming.telemetry.mozilla.org' is the majority of the pie which has a count of 61 blocks. File 'ScreenShot2' shows the actual number count for the Domain.

Both my wife and I have lost work and time due to Firefox notifications. I have seen my wife throw her hands up and ask me what to do because she has been hacked and now all it will let her do is change her Firefox color theme or whatever else Firefox is pushing. For people with physical or other handicaps these notifications are extremely stressful. I did the research (4hours) in Firefox archives and getting caught in the Firefox loop that took me back to the same wrong information. BTW, where is the "options" category in Privacy and Security? I have installed a block though I doubt it will work and would like to hear the correct way to stop or derail Firefox notifications. Suggestion: Use a pop up message like a sticky note instead of de-prioritizing the web page I am attempting to or looking at. I could be contacting poison control since I can't hear or (this actually did happen) researching what to do with explosives in my back yard that are smoking and dripping that I just plowed up AND the local law is a 1-800 number and will get back to me when they listen to their machine. When my freedom of choice is taken, it pushes me to not support the taker. If I can be of assistance let me know and I will do what I can to improve the Firefox notification scenario.

Hi,

This morning I logged into my Gmail using incognito mode and then closed the tab. Now when I visit Gmail inside incognito it logs me in immediately as if it saved all session information like cookies. I faced this issue first time on any browser and there is no mention of such issue elsewhere. I am on Version 96.0.1

I'm trying to connect to octopi.local and keep getting the "Internal Sever Error" when trying to connect to my Octopie with octopi.local. This has never happened before and all I can figure out it that my browser has updated to version 96. How do I get around this so i can monitor my printers?

Why and how has Google Search been added to my browser opening page?

Has Google bought Mozilla? or have they donated enough for Mozilla to become a proxy Marketing and user acquisition arm of Google?

This happened on my Windows machine and have read the below too.

Brian Fagioli, reporting for BetaNews:

  • The developers of the Ubuntu-based operating system have agreed to accept an undisclosed amount of money from Mozilla in exchange for making significant changes to Linux Mint. This includes removal of modifications to Firefox and a big change for search. The devs share the upcoming changes to Firefox in Linux Mint 19 and higher.
  • The default start page no longer points to https://www.linuxmint.com/start/
  • The default search engines no longer include Linux Mint search partners (Yahoo, DuckDuckGo...) but Mozilla search partners (Google, Amazon, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Ebay...)
  • The default configuration switches from Mint defaults to Mozilla defaults.
  • Firefox no longer includes code changes or patches from Linux Mint, Debian or Ubuntu.

Can you let me know if the above is correct? Cheers.

i can login fine in places where it doesn't require me to enable 2fa like https://accounts.firefox.com/ i tried enabling 2fa from there (through my account's settings but the same thing happens): https://files.catbox.moe/onm1yw.png

How do I stop Firefox from connecting to Yahoo analytics. Bitdefender is constantly stopping Firefox, see below

Online Threat Prevention:

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an expired certificate to sp.analytics.yahoo.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since websites must renew their certificates with a certification authority to stay current, and outdated security certificates represent a risk.

I don't want Firefox to connect to Yahoo for any reason.

I need ONLY MY address saved, not every one that comes through a form. Firefox saves everything it sees and tries to autopopulate everything I do with all of them. I know how to clean the address list, but I work in an address-heavy environment, and if I cleaned it every day autofill would still be useless.

Please, need a switch to STOP saving addresses willy-nilly, but still autofill with those few I have purposely saved.

Thanks, Bathsheba

Hello. First, fantastic work on the browser! Second, recently my secure connection to a specific site keeps dropping. I use Firefox to connect to tutanota.com (de). I have HTTPS Everywhere and uBlock Origin installed. Before recently, I never encountered this issue, now it's happening every day. When I first log in it's working as expected, zero issues. After about 30 minutes to an hour I now see the error stating that my connection is not encrypted, and mentions something about loading external images. I already told the support team at Tutanota that I have no images loading, but it's still showing the error. They said the connection should still be secure, but that doesn't make sense if the browser itself is saying it's not secure. It happened around the time where I also had DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials installed as well, but I have since uninstalled that add-on. Still showing error. Please advise.

I am using Firefox on a MacBook Air with OS 11.6.2 in order to use online banking in Portugal. I need and have generated a Digital Certificate at the bank, but when I try to import it so that the bank with recognize my device it gives me an error messages of " Unable to import this item" and Unknown format in input". I spoke to Apple support already and they suggested that I speak with you first to see if you would know why this problem is occurring. I have been using this computer in the past to access the accounts, but because my Digital Certificate has now expired I am required to generate a new one. I have attempted this 9 times in the last two days without success. I have also spoken with the bank in Portugal and they were not able to determine why I cannot import/save this certificate to my computer. Also the MacBook Air is from early 2014.
