I haven't changed anything in Firefox as I'm not too computer savvy but now Netflix no longer works nor does yahoo. For yahoo it says something about a date in the future. No idea what has happened. Have a Mac and haven't made any software updates, my computer is 5-6 years old and isn't even capable of being updated, or so it tells me every time I try and do updates.

Hi, I have the latest version of Firefox 67.0 installed on my computer. I open a new tab and connect to my gmail account. Then I open a private browsing tab. A new tab is showing like any other regular normal tab. I type google.com in the address bar. I see that the supposedly private browsing tab is connected to my gmail account. This should not be the case. Is there any option or setting I should switch on or off in order to retrieve a private browsing that does not behave like a normal tab?

Thank you for your help!

My phone was wiped while it had the 10-Digit recovery codes and the Authenticator app which had the other 2FA codes. How do I get my account back? I've tried resetting the password but it still wants 2FA codes.

Any help would be appreciated even if it is to let me know it is a lost cause. I would make a new account, but the one that's locked uses my main email account.

spell check does not work for both English and Hungarian on updated computer

My Mozilla Firefox was updated and now my English and Hungarian spellchecks do not work. I have tried deleting and then reinstalling the dictionaries and followed all recommended solutions to no avail. I went to Mozilla tools and options and languages to check if the two languages were installed. I removed them and reinstalled them. Auto correct is checked. This is most disheartening since everything worked perfectly until a few days ago. What is the point of having spell check if it will not work? The improper spelled word in English is underlined in red, but clicking on the word does not do anything. Before I would get a list of possible words to fit what I was trying to write. In Hungarian ALL the words are underlined and clicking on them does not reveal options either. Spell check should not be this difficult! People can send people up to the moon and back but I can't get spell check to work on an updated computer! Please help!!! I really rely on spell check in BOTH languages. Thank you!

I used to be a Firefox user in the past until i moved to Chrome but its one of the things that deters me from coming back to Firefox.

Hello,

From a month or so, my mozilla Browser tabs are showing as browser windows. For better understanding please check the attached image.

As you can see in the image, when I hover over the Mozilla icon on the taskbar the browser is showing as there are 4 windows are open but they are just tabs.

The same mozila is sycn in 2 of my computers which is showing the issue. I have another computer with different email and the browser is working fine there. Is there any setting that I missed here?

Looking forward for a positive response.

Thank you.

I registered a sync account on firefox for Macbook and synced on Macbook perfectly. But when I tried to syn on my iphone 8plus, the same account was told not existing and I was told to create a new account. Then I deleted the sync account from Macbook firefow and registered a new one (with the same email address) on my iPhone. Then the syncing on iphone was perfect. But when I tried to sync on my macbook, the same account was told not existing either.

It seems to me that the sync account on Macbook firefox and the sync account(with same email address) on iPhone firefox are in 2 isolated zones. The 2 devices can not see each other with the same sync account of email.

FF superb with multi-tabs often open until Win10+other May updates; HDD now soon constantly active + tab hover summaries all show the same- until system restart

The above repeatedly now brings up the yellow bar message that a web page is slowing loading (wait vs close) or various apps open show 'not responding' (e.g. LibreOffice Writer mostly used) though do so after ponderous wait. Problem then persists if other apps are closed, leaving only FF running. The problem seems to build relatively soon after each restart when the HDD starts persistent activity even when nothing much being actively used. Previously would leave system running for weeks before any signs of restart being preferable. Thorough scans, check on drive capacity, file integrity and fragmentation levels, clearing cookies and site data, etc don't reveal anything amiss. It could of course be unrelated to FF such as if any conflict between Bitdefender and Win10 inbuilt security though none reported. Open tabs are typically held over a restart. restarts can be quite slow as though some temp cache being cleared.

Worked fine until last week. suddenly, trying to force me to enter Gmail through Chrome. Has anyone found the bypass for setting up gmail in MSOutlook? Even entering the password, won't get past that stupid log in screen. Yes, cleared cache. Yes, put https://mail.google.com on the whitelist for firefox.

Can't find any help on gmail support, of course... trying to force Chrome.
