I try to clear cookies and site data but it doesn't work and keeps coming back. I've cleared hundreds of times before with no problem but now for some reason the data doesn't clear. I've tried clearing history first, or clearing each item individually but nothing working? What do I do?

Hey, All of the saved logins and passwords are gone while the bookmarks remain.

I noticed that logins and passwords disappeared after the computer turned off unexpectedly due to low battery and unstable power connection couple times in a few minute interval.

How do I get back logins and passwords?

Last night my Firefox 94.0.2 was hacked. When running Firefox, it would lock up my desktop. It disabled Norton Security, it disable other installed security software, and it disabled Windows System Restore. The hacker put up a message claiming to be Microsoft Support, with a phone number to call for help. This was a scam. I ran Firefox refresh, and that removed the hacker's program from Firefox, but then I had to do a full repair of my Window's installation. To protect my system, and prevent this from happening again, I added "xpinstall.enabled = false" into about.config. Please let me know if this will prevent a web site from installing a dangerous hack into Firefox, or if there is something else that I need to do. I have used Firefox for years, and have never encountered this problem before. Firefox is my favorite browser, but I am now afraid to use it. Please advise me what to do. Thanks, Jim

I want to block a website. I have exhausted google search advice. (BTW, there is no "Settings" option on my mac which is always the first step ("Go to settings.")) I downloaded Privacy Badger which is another problem: I can't find my apps, not with Finder and not in Launchpad.I'm really frustrated with Firefox. Thanks for the help.)

Version 94.0.2 (64-bit) Windows 10

Hi.

A few times in Settings I selected History->Never remember history, yet upon reopening the browser the setting was changed to "Use custom settings for history" and "Always use private mode." Why is this happening?

The larger issue is Cached Web Content (CWC), which doesn't completely delete like everything else. No matter the settings to delete everything upon closing or never remember, every time I reopen FF and click Clear Data there is some data in CWC (albeit in kb). I've read many pages and posts here and it's still not clear: A) Why isn't it 0 bytes and B) If a previously visited site can access the CWC, then isn't that a strike against privacy?

Sincerley,

Hank

I would like to create Certificate backup since I am planning to install new operating system.

Setting - Certificates - view certificates - selected the certificate which I wanted to backup - click Backup - type File name - Save - typed certificate backup password 2x - click OK

The following message appears: Failed to create the PKCS #12 backup file for unknown reasons.

I tried several times + I tried also Backup all option - but same issue appears.

Approx. 5 months ago I did certificate backup for my wife and it worked without any issues, now I have no clue what is the reason for not working.

Any idea/suggestion?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Long story short: Whenever I open Firefox, apparently a Russian search engine named 'Poshukach' hijacks my homepage and doesn't let me use google(Image attached). Now to solve this I scoured the Internet. I refreshed Firefox, ran malware scans and even re-installed windows. Still it doesn't go away. I installed Firefox in another device with the same account but to no avail. They while roaming through Firefox settings I noticed in the top that it says 'Your browser settings is managed by your organization' or something like that. So, I figured bad guys took control of my browser's settings disguising as my so called "organization" So, I need help from Firefox's end to solve this. Remove this Organization management stuff from my account. I want my control back. Otherwise, I am afraid I gotta stop using Firefox altogether due to privacy reasons

I filled up a form with name and surname, no passwords. When coming back to the site days later, just pressing first letter shows my previously typed data. For example, the letter J will show John right away.

Where is this information stored? I looked in "Memory" devtab, it is not there so I presume this is not stored by the website in my PC. Also, I don't see this data in in History.

Where is it?

I am absolutely devastated to find that my saved logins and passwords have all vanished from my account. I just uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox because the sync on my open tabs didn't seem to be working. But now ALL of my passwords are gone and I don't have them anywhere else because I thought I could rely on Firefox.

I'm logged in to my Firefox account but they are all gone.

How can I get them back? Please keep it simple if possible, I have no background in IT.

Thanks so much - feeling a bit desperate here and hoping there's some way to recover them all.

I can't connect to any websites after clicking on a Manual LIbrary webpage that kept me hostage and would open instead of the website I was trying to get to. I thought it was a scam after doing some research on another browser. This Manual Library gave me two options. To decline tracking on everything or to accept. I clicked the two buttons to decline and now I can't access anything. I don't want to delete my history nor my cookies because I have saved a bunch of things but I think my history is now gone. Searching what to do tells me the only way to correct this being able to use Firefox is to not have my history saved but deleted all of the time and get rid of all cookies. I don't want to do this. What to do now?? I have had to download other browsers in order to use the internet.

How to save duckduckgo settings while using firefox private browsing

I'm using Firefox v94.0.2 in private browsing mode (hereafter PB) and can't figure out how to save the "infinate scroll" option in duckduckgo (herafter DDG) while using Firefox private browsing. I know that PB wipes out all cookies when I shut Firefox down. So I tried building a cookie for DDG's options while NOT in PB mode. That works fine both in that session and in subsequent sessions, as long as I don't go back to PB. But when I do go back to PB, the DDG settings revert to some default set, and DDG's "infinate scroll" setting is not set to ON any more. Is there a way I can have PB keep the DDG "infinite scroll" setting? Thanks

If you block my add-ons without notification or my permission I will block your browser permanently. FTD was the heartbeat of my internet experience, you may give me the security choice and I will decide but not you. After too many hours of setting up and keeping current you instantly wipe it out, obviously you don't care and we will not put up with your Suckerberg attitude. My many followers are already aware of what you did and now I'm overflooded with response. Fuckoff Firefox............
