Okay, I give up. So, Facebook is or has implemented this Turn on two-factor authentication or whatever it is. What this means for me at the moment is that I am unable to access my Facebook account as it is now forcing me to use this Two-factor authentication thingie, despite that I do not have a mobile phone. (yes, I know it's unusual in this day of age not to have one. I did have one at one time, but for the moment I have no interest in getting another one). I would rather use my laptop anyway.

Doesn't Firefox have a Two-factor Authentication thing that I can use with Facebook? Without a mobile phone using the Firefox browser on a computer or laptop?

Now, from what I can see, Facebook is offering 3 ways of doing this. #1) Authentication app, like Google Authenticator or Duo Mobile. #2) Text message (SMS). #3) Security Key. So, because I do not use or have a mobile phone, I was guessing that my option would only be #1 Authentication app, like Google Authenticator ... which I have never used before, and while reading up on it, I keep reading that I can only use it with the Google Chrome browser?!? If that wasn't bad enough, I typically use Microsoft Outlook, not Gmail. So, I am at a loss at this point.

Again, I do not have a mobile phone. Doesn't Firefox have a Two-factor Authentication thing that I can use with Facebook? Without a mobile phone using the Firefox browser on a computer or laptop?

Help please.

Yesterday, 2/4/23, all of a sudden Firefox won't connect to any websites. I push a shortcut button, or type in a website and the address shows in the address bar and in the tab the dot bounces left and right showing it's trying to connect but it never connects. I have no idea what caused it. There were no updates of windows or anything else. Ice Dragon web browser, based on firefox, MS edge, chrome, Brave, all work. Anyone have any ideas where to start troubleshooting? Thanks, Darren

For several weeks now I have been unable to sign in or track packages on FedEx.com. I have had to use Microsoft Edge to access FedEx.com. I never used to have this problem. I don't know what Mozilla did, but I wished it could be undone! I use a VPN, ExpressVPN, and thought this was the problem at first, but it is not. I turned off ExpressVPN and still cannot access FedEx.com. Same with using AT&T Broadband. I have tried cleaning my history/cookies and it has no affect whether I use ExpressVPN or AT&T Broadband. I went to FedEx.com on Mozilla and clicked the 'shield' and turned off Mozilla's Enhanced Tracking Feature. I still can not use FedEx.com.

I see no solution to this issue unless I can find some way to completely turn off your Enhanced Tracking software that you have added. It is ridiculous that I have to use Microsoft Edge every time I want to access FedEx.

What is the solution?

I only have one window open of Firefox, but multiple tabs open in that window. The primary monitor properly displays that only one window is open, however the second monitor shows that there are multiple windows open. Although this COULD be a Windows issue, I haven't seen it with any other programs, which is why I'm reporting it here.

Hey Firefox Agent: Well I just wrote this out in a prior communication, but it got lost when I tried to figure out how to provide: Troubleshooting Information (optional):

Okay, so here we go again. But I am not going to provide: Troubleshooting Information (optional):

Here's the problem: In my Hotmail account, I am getting email "cards" (entries in my Hotmail account) that say: Unusual Sign-In Activity. Now recently, I spent a lot of time finally contacting and spending time with a Microsoft Tech Support agent. This agent helped me change the password on my main Hotmail account. Yet, I am still getting these annoying email "cards" in my Hotmail account. Now, I've analyzed these various email "cards" and I discovered a few things relating to Firefox. Here's what I found on all (5) of these separate email "cards": Sign-in details Country/region: Australia IP address: Please note I eliminated the IP address here because I don't know if it safe to do so or if I will be compromising my computer in any way. In order to share this IP address, I need to know if I am now dealing with an official Firefox support agent. If so and if it is necessary to share the IP address then please let me know in your follow up response. Date: 11/1/2022 4:46 PM (GMT) Platform: Windows Browser: Firefox Today, by the way, is: Sun 5 Feb 23 Time now: 4:16p Est at the time of writing this here line. It is interesting that the email "cards", all of them, have the same date and time: 11/1/2022 4:46 PM (GMT) There's something not right about receiving email "cards" from back in November 2022.

Now if you--the Firefox Support Agent--know what I can do to resolve and stop this annoying problem then please let me know by sending me an email to my email address. You have it from my Firefox account. Gosh, this is such an annoying problem. If you can help then please do so. Thank you.

All of a sudden every time I try to sign in on Yahoo mail I get a warning "We've noticed some unusual account activity" and I have to get a text (which I pay for individually) to get a code to continue (the code I get by email which would not cost me anything never works). I have no problem when I use Microsoft Edge. What is happening and how can it be fixed.
