Hello, I would like to point out that the window or the password for accessing the mozilla firefox browser can be circumvented simply by selecting the "Cancel" button or by clicking on the red cross.

In other words it is useless, whereas before it worked perfectly.

Hope you fix this problem soon.

Best Regards

Is there anyway to make a Hotkey for our Autoplay function, instead of having to go into Settings, each time we need the function?

In my experience, I have it set to Block both Video and Sound, but this blocks simple pronunciations, in Search or Translations. I hope there some way, a command, a mod or a setting allowing a Hotkey or Icon for Fast Disable/Enable.

Thanks for all your work and making the internet safer for everyone.

Hello everyone,

Please test with all versions of Firefox. I was able to reproduce this consistently even after a complete reinstall or reset. For this case, ESR was checked and surprisingly it stays online even when offline mode is used upon start using profile manager. For this, you can create a new profile and start the browser in offline mode and search something in address bar. At first, you will be greeted with an offline mode message but if you hit refresh then the browser becomes online and the search results are now available. This is not just related to search results but any websites.

Hope you guys can provide some info as this is really unexpected behavior.

Thank you and looking forward to your suggestions

Test specs: Windows 7-10/Linux/Ubuntu Firefox version: ESR 102.5.0/Standard 107.0

Remember search and form history. This setting always resets to false after the latest two FireFox updates and I need to enable it again.

After logging out and back in the setting is disabled again. I've removed all plugins and extensions I've added and the issue persists.

I've tried Places Database : Verify Integrity but the issue persists on very Restart or loggin. In the past I've even removed FireFox with a 3rd party uninstaller to remove all remnants of FF but, as a very long term user of FF (right from the early Win XP days), this issue pops up from time to time and it's really starting to become extremely annoying.

Apart from Refreshing FF or the total nuke and reinstall option, what else can be done to stop this issue?

Thanks.

I would like to temporarily disable the password manager before the computer goes to sleep or I leave it on in an active state and walk away from it for a short time. I do not want to exit FF but would like to keep all tabs open. As of now, if the computer sleeps, and upon awaking, I try access a password protected website FF will fill in the password and will not require a Password Manager Primary password. I would like FF to require the Primary password up awaking from the sleep state, and also be able turn off the password manager while the computer is in an active state.

I have unsubscribed from all newsletter after receiving the first email but days later I'm still getting emails from Firefox (e.g. Superpower #4: See if your info has been leaked).

This is an incredibly bad user experience and to my knowledge illegal in the EU.

I'm probably still within that journey but the journey should terminate the moment I clicked unsubscribed.

The Markup published an article yesterday revealing how some of the biggest tax preparation websites out there are passing confidential information back to Meta/Facebook.

It appears that this is something that the Facebook Container plugin would block, but I wanted to double-check and make sure.
