Firefox obviously couldn't care less about users when it comes to making things user-friendly. What are users supposed to do in order to sign into their account? I don't need to enable two-step authentication, so why are they forcing me? If they think it's necessary, what is "my authentication app"? I don't have any authentication app and why do I need it to sign into my account on my PC??? Where do I get that authentication app? Is it really so hard to include a link or at least a name of that app?

I am not able to join my universities online classes through Firefox. I thought it might be just an issue with the unis conference service, but I tried discord as well and it's the same problem. Stuff I have tried: look into the permissions options and resdet the permissions (didn't even ask me for pemission again), check if the "block new requests" is marked (never was), didn't help launching firefox in trobleshoot mode to see if it's one of the addons that is the root of my problem, but it didn't change anything.

The only thing that helped was to reset Firefox, but that only fixes it temorarily (about 3 days). After that it reverted back to not letting me join calls. Now I could keep resetting my broweser every three day, but that's a bit bothersome.

Something happened to Firefox over the weekend-- update or otherwise. Lost all my tabs. Had to uninstall and reinstall. Re-do all my settings. Re-set all my pinned tabs for work. Now I can't get into Asana, a project management tool I use for work daily and have used for years, because of the below security message. I've tried everything I can think of but can't get Firefox to open Asana.

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to app.asana.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

app.asana.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

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.

When using the "Checkout with PayPal" button on websites the PayPal popup window appears however it's impossible to progress to the checkout. When I then use Edge and do my purchase through there, the PayPal popup window allows me to enter my info and then proceed to PayPal with no problem at all.

I have added paypal.com into exclusions for 'Block pop-up windows' and Enhanced Tracking Protection

But, I want to be able to use Firefox! I do not want to be forced into having to use Edge for purchase payments using PayPal. I am not a techie and would like a simple solution w/o having to get into modifying any programming files. S.O.S.

We proceeded exactly according to the description for installing the option to save user names and passwords for further use. But it doesn't work. There comes the question if user name and password should be stored and despite you get "yes" they are not stored. Everything funcions well on our other computers but it doesn't work on our additional computer we are just installing. What could be the problem?

Note': Such problems do exist when all add-ons disabled and in safe mode Firefox (by "refresh firefox" option).

When Firefox is started, an advertising window would occur. The hijacked address: https://winxuan[.]jd[.]com/?cu=true&utm_source=kong&utm_medium=tuiguang&utm_campaign=t_1000623798_&utm_term=19dca519301545a6b711007896b3b333 hijacked address

Also, Ctrl + Shift + N was hijacked to the same window.

The window is strange: When I click the "+" button to open a new tab, the new tab directly opens in the previous window.

Perhaps something in Firefox itself was maliciously modified, I guess.

I am using 88.0.1 (64-bit) version Firefox on Win10.

hello, i searched a bit and refreshed FF, started in FF in safe mode(currently in safe mode), shifted to work offline then shifted back, as possible solutions. No proxy is selected in network preferences. All that did was make it so whatsmyip.com now says no proxy when it said proxy in use before. it's showing las vegas as my location this time. My real location is hawaii and all my other browsers show this. The "problem" is months old. I have to verify that im not a robot regularly, and certain sites give an error 403, (iirc), but work fine with safari because it isn't using a proxy. Is it possible there is some sort of malware causing this? mac os10.12.6 FF88.0.1 (64bit)

The push notifications from allowed sites are enabled in the privacy and security settings, but the little box that's supposed to pop up isn't popping up. I depend on these quite a bit on YouTube, so I need them to work. Any ideas on what might be blocking them? If you could give me a list of things to try, I'd be very grateful. Thanks in advance!

Hi Firefox In one of the updates I lost all my saved passwords. I responded "no" to access the saved passwords in one of the updates, afraid of giving some external hackers access to them, not knowing that I would lose them all. Is there any way to get the lost passwords back? Is there any files on my hard disc where these are stored? I hope that you can help me.... With Regards

Hi,

The privacy and security settings don't work on Firefox 88 on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS). Many sites will offer the option to 'Login with google/facebook/whatever' rather than creating a new account for that specific site. One really annoying (and dangerous) consequence of 'logging in with google' is that it remains logged in. So for example if I log in to non-google siteX using my google credentials and then hours later open gmail in a different tab I get straight through to my gmail inbox without having to supply any credentials (and indeed any other user of the same machine could do the same). Obviously this highly insecure and dangerous policy of keeping me logged in indefinitely is implemented by Google for their own agenda and has nothing to do with Firefox. The bug in Firefox is that when I clear all data to work around this google problem FIREFOX does not work as advertised. So to try to 'force' a logout from my Google account I go to Firefox -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies & Site Data -> Clear Data, after a few minutes of churning away at my harddrive Firefox informs me that 'Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 0 bytes of disk space.' For good measure I then hit the 'Clear History' button. After this I open a fresh tab and go to gmail and I get straight into my inbox, no credentials required, so clearly Firfox is NOT deleting all cookies etc and is mis-reporting that 0 bytes are being used. So, does anyone know where/how I should report this dangerous privacy bug ?

Thanks MH
