Hello, A couple weeks ago my Quickbooks Online software began requiring 2 tier authentication. This feature is disabled within the software settings and does not happen when using a Macbook. According to Quickbooks this issue is due to the browser (Firefox). I didn't change any setting prior to this issue. I did however reset to the default settings but the problem is not resolved. I've searched the Firefox settings for a solution but was unsuccessful. Can anyone help?

Thanks, Kathy

If I, for example use Google as search engine, it always requires me to accept cookies. Then if I have accepted the cookies and go to one of the found pages, read it and go back to the search, Firefox tries to load the same popup window again, but fails. When I open a new tab and reenter the search phrase, the same window for accepting cookies appears. I think this problems have appeared after the latest update to version 82.0.3; not sure if I have changes some preference. My compter is an old MacBookPro with OS 10.13.6. In previous versions, I have been asked now and then to accept google's privacy rules. The similar problems appears for other sites, for example sanoma.com, where I have chosen to accept only the necessary cookies, not third party, analytics, etc. When I open a link and go back, the same question appears again, but for these sites it does not hang up, as in the google case. I mostly use private browsing window, and have better privacy and similar extensions activated.

Malware Auto Download with Capital One Download URL

I happened on a page: https://capitaloneshopping.com/join-capital-one-shopping?utm_source=Meerkat&utm_campaign=107592707702&utm_term=472928718855&gclid=EAIaI… (read more)

I happened on a page: https://capitaloneshopping.com/join-capital-one-shopping?utm_source=Meerkat&utm_campaign=107592707702&utm_term=472928718855&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI0Ij6h5iD7QIVgi0MCh2TLgrJEAEYASAAEgJALvD_BwE

And it immediately began "downloading an app" and I quit the page before it could get far, but, obviously, that doesn't mean it stopped. However, now Firefox is acting a little wiggy, and I'm concerned it might have downloaded something that's affecting the browser. Was trying to read about "capital one shopping malware," and pages wouldn't open when any links on the search results were clicked, etc.

Is this a known issue? Resolutions offered?

I installed Firefox Facebook container, thinking I could at last feel safe signing up and using Facebook. So I went to the public Facebook.com pages about privacy to examine the latest in their privacy settings, no login required of course. However I was stopped repeatedly by the following error message: Your Request Couldn't be Processed There was a problem with this request. We're working on getting it fixed as soon as we can. I then pasted the same Facebook.com web address into Edge and had no problems viewing facebook.com pages open to the public. Again, I am not trying to sign in and do not have an active Facebook account. Does Firefox management know if Facebook is sabotaging Facebook Container either deliberately or by neglect, or if Facebook is actually working on allowing the use of Facebook Container on Firefox while using Facebook.com pages?

There used to be an add-on where every time you opened a new tab it went to whatever homepage you had chosen

That add-on is gone, and now every time you open a new tab, it's either the Firefox page or a blank page

Why is there no add-on that allows you to set new tabs to your homepage (or whatever page you want, really)?

And why hasn't Firefox just built this into the options to choose from?

I think most people would want new tabs to open to a page they choose, and almost no one really wants or needs the Firefox page
