If you block my add-ons without notification or my permission I will block your browser permanently. FTD was the heartbeat of my internet experience, you may give me the security choice and I will decide but not you. After too many hours of setting up and keeping current you instantly wipe it out, obviously you don't care and we will not put up with your Suckerberg attitude. My many followers are already aware of what you did and now I'm overflooded with response. Fuckoff Firefox............

I just updated to 94.0.2 and now it is prompting for my primary password as usual but it is not accepting it.I've entered it hundreds of times and it is definitely the one I always use for this browser. I'm locked out and don't want to have to reset and lose my data. It was working fine before the update. I tried doing a refresh and it didn't change anything.

Please help

UPDATE: after about 25 times it stopped asking. No idea why

Eversync website is presumably now overloaded with subscribers trying to download their bookmarks using other browsers!!!! Madness Who knows how long it will take - totally unnecessary.

How can i hide my display/screen resolution from websites? I use Firefox in windowed mode not with my default screen size but websites know my default resolution. This can be used to identify my pc. I dont want that for privacy reasons like tracking and adverstising. How can i prevent this? I found many threads/posts about this in various forums/websites. They are talking about Tor Browser and that websites can identify you if using full-screen mode. But as i said, im using Firefox not Tor and while im using windowed-mode websites still know my default resoltion. I tested this on https://whoer.net/

Another question, how can i restore the default window size in Firefox?

So i own an Android Phone and i use DuckDuckGo search engine on PC. I just got this adversting from duck asking me to install their extension on android. So why is this important, well obviously they directly tell me they know i own an android phone. Otherwise they would have sayd it this way; extension for mobile phones now available, or duckduckgo now available for iphones. The only other possibility would be if this is a new feature that is in general displayed to everyone, but i dont beleve this is the case because an iphone owner wouldnt care about an android extension. This is wired, is it not?

Someone else's name is showing up as a saved login user name on Twitter.com - Firefox only

I use Firefox (94.0.2) on a Macbook Pro (using MacOS 11.6.1) and went to log in to Twitter this evening and had a strange result. I only occasionally view Twitter using my laptop and I use my email address and a password to log in. When I clicked in the field that reads "Phone, user name or email" I expected to see the Firefox autofill to show my email address, but instead it shows the name "Farha Hussain" (see screenshot image).

I checked my Firefox preferences for Saved Logins and I have my email address and password for Twitter saved there, but no mention of Farha Hussain (my name is Keith). I tried other websites to see if I could recreate the issue and couldn't. I visited the Twitter login form using Chrome and Safari and neither suggested Farha Hussain as a user name, so I think that this is something specific to Firefox on the Twitter website.

To make this an even more unusual situation, the only "Farha Hussain" that I know is a doctor in my city who I have been meaning to contact to see if she is accepting patients, but haven't yet done so. Her name is in my Mac Calendar and that's the only place I can think of on my computer (not in contacts or anywhere else). How this would be connected to a Twitter login is beyond my understanding.

Let me know if you would like additional information or screenshots.

I get this when I go to any website, icluding Google, Facebook, etc: Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead This is the message I got. It really seems unlikely that, as this message says, there is an issue with Google, Facebook, and the New York Times. Please advise--in simple English, as I am not a techie. THanks

===============

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.washington.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Learn more…

Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.washington.com because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates.

Under 'Settings' then 'Privacy & Security', I have selected 'Never remember history'

I goto the website 'amaincycling.com' and click or mouse over the 'person' icon next to the 'shopping cart'. In the popup menu, left clicking on 'Log in' does nothing.

Then I change the history to 'Use custom settings for history' and on 'Always use private browsing mode' is selected.

restart Firefox

I goto the website 'amaincycling.com' and click or mouse over the 'person' icon next to the 'shopping cart'. In the popup menu, left clicking on 'Log in' does nothing.

With history still 'Use custom settings for history', uncheck the 'Always use private browsing mode' and the three sub-choices are NOT checked: 'Remember browsing and download history', 'Remember search and form history' and 'Clear history when Firefox close' (This is the same function as 'Never remember history')

I goto the website 'amaincycling.com' and click or mouse over the 'person' icon next to the 'shopping cart'. In the popup menu, left clicking on 'Log in' and NOW the login page opens! BUT, I check settings and NOW the 'Remember seach and form history' is also checked which I never checked!

For interest, I had all three sub-choices checked: 'Remember browsing and download history', 'Remember search and form history' and 'Clear history when Firefox close' which is the same as 'Never

If private browsing mode is going to interfere with websites like this then maybe when 'Never remember history' is selected, then a check box option should be shown to to check whether 'Always use private browsing mode'

This is interesting, Firefox has a feature where clicking in a Password box brings up the option to"Use a securely generated password" option... which is cool, except that for some reason it's not letting me generate a NEW one on this website I'm on, it keeps giving me the exact same password as my old one!

This is problematic because the website won't let me re-use a previously used password when resetting my password!

How do I tell Firefox to generate a brand new securely generated password?

I had a motherboard go and had to replace it.. ..logging into firefox I get the email verification notice, the most basic crap you have to deal with, normally, except when it comes to Mozilla!!!

I started before noon, so far I've gotten five numbers and everyone was expired when I got it!!! One of those five came in while I was writing this. It's so frustrating to have to deal with this type of incompetence, the most basic, everybody uses it and why companies like Mozilla have it and ignore it, obviously they aren't maintaining it.. ..and this company markets and sells security components like the VPN...and they can't even handle the most basic login verification!!!
