Hello,

I'm getting the following message:

« Sorry. We’ve locked your account.

The confirmation email we sent to XXX@XXX.org was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account. No longer own that email? Create a new account »

I can connect to this support using the account, but not using sync on my devices.

My mail is a valid email address, and there was some temporary problem with the mail server which explains why the mail was returned.

What can I do to get back my account? The « let us know » link leads me here.

Thanks,

Once every week it seems Firefox forgets im logged in and kicks me out from every site.

I can close Firefox and turn off computer and im still logged in on Youtube on startup, but some time during week it seems to drop the logged in state and i have to redo it on multiple sites.

Im starting to wonder if it has something to do with my Phone visiting Youtube on same account that screws it up. It seems to happen when i disappear from PC for some hours and comes back. In that time ive usually streamed Youtube content on Chromecast.

Ive had this happen meanwhile i was logged in on Youtube with the tab open. Once i refreshed i was logged out. Ive cleared cookies/cache to test if that was the issue but that didnt fix it. Other than that clearing cookies is disabled and has been so at all times.

This problem has been going on for a few months.

I started to download some files from a public web site and noticed, after downloading a few files, that the next few downloads all refused to actually start, showing unknown time left. To clarify, a few downloads would work fine, but then I would attempt the next download and it would cause the download to hang. Worse, I cannot download any files - at all - beyond that until I close my browser and reopen it.

This has happened ive times in ten minutes. Every time, restarting the browser causes the files I attempted to download previously to immediately successfully download without any intervention from myself upon relaunch. I can then download another few files, and then it starts to hang again. I have been forced to move this downloading activity over to Google Chrome while reporting the issue, and so far Chrome does not seem to have any issues.

Any ideas?

Hi,

Recently upgraded from ESR 68.12 to ESR 78.3 I have over 2000 passwords on my Corporate desktop Firefox account and I find I'm unable to access these in anything like a timely fashion. The new Lockwise password manager UI does not appear to be able to display a LIST of passwords based on usernames, date last used, date last changed, urls etc. Is it possible to get a list view instead of the current one, or will I have to downgrade back ESR 68.12 ?

Thanks Bob

It seems so simple. You're reading a page and run into a link you want to read later. You use the standard Control+Click to load it in a background tab leaving your present reading uninterrupted. But more and more often you're taken to the new tab immediately which means you are not only interrupted from your present reading but have to remember to go back to where you were (not a habit when you're used to opening in background tabs and closing them cleanly when finished) and find where you where on what may be a multi-page document. Often tens of pages. Wasted time.

Is there any way of making Control+Click work properly? One sure fire but more long winded way is to right click and hit T. That seems foolproof.

It's impossible to edit a URL in the new and terrible address bar. This is a problem, and just one tiny example among many, when a website shows a non English page because I am in some other country. I used to be able to change .../de/etc. to /en-us/etc. and get the correct page. Now I have to click dots, select to copy, paste into notepad, make the change and paste-and-go.

Can this completely idiotic behavior be changed? Who is this aimed at, anyway? Address bars have worked the same for decades at this point - and whilest enhancing it is fine, disabling something as basic to ALL Windows or Mac as editing is insane.

the Adobe Acrobat extension stopped working. So I uninstalled it thinking I could find it on the list of add-ons and then reinstall it. However, apparently that's not the way this works. So I tried installing an upgraded version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, but the extension was not reinstalled in the process. I talked to the Adobe Acrobat help folks and they said that I have to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. I'm very worried about this because I have so many specific settings set up in Firefox and I don't want to lose any of those. Is there another workaround?

It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

Most of us have declined the gracious offer to be spammed incessantly by the website we're visiting by clicking the X on the upper right hand corner of the latest request to register and be notified of all their incessant and unending notifications and drivel. We've probably done this tens of thousands of times. The chance of someone clicking yes must be 1 in thousands yet they aggravate and irritate us to no end because they DO NOT CARE. If they can make a penny while aggravating 10,000 people they'll do it. That's the kind of people we have working in management these days. Truly the slime of society.

Is there really no way of stopping these things? Firefox's offer to block pop-ups is a frighteningly dismal failure as are all other browers' attempts. Is there really no solution other than using F9/Reader View which doesn't work on many sites? Or disable Javascript which takes much longer than closing the pop-up and usually renders the site unreadable anyway?
