In JavaScript I did addEventListener('storage', ...), and it's working fine as long as I use localStorage.setItem(), .removeItem(), or .clear(). However, when I use the "Clear Data..." button under "Settings | Privacy and Security" it seems the event does not fire. I noticed that in Chrome the corresponding settings option to clear all data does fire the storage listener, and this is the behavior I'm looking for.

Thanks.

I have tried removing the site, adding back, troubleshooting mode, etc. I have added it with both http and https, nothing works. The only thing that works is to turn the pop up blocker off but I dont want to do that.

This worked before, but now it does not work correctly.

Bug issue?

Trying to use ProctorU with Firefox 104.0.2 on Windows 11 Home, and I am getting the following message : "Monitor Count : You may only use 1 monitor during your exam. Your monitor count could not be found". I searched for possible fixes, and someone mentioned removing fingerprinters, and possibly also remove cookies and tracking content from Firefox enforcement. I removed all 3 and that did not help. I also tried clearing cookies and site data and also cached web content, this did not help. Is there some other setting in Firefox that might be preventing the detection of the monitor count? Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

Hi,

I have set Firefox to delete every cookie when I exit. However some websites use cookies for dark mode. My question is this : can I make it so Firefox continues to delete every cookie but save only some specific cookies For exemple, linkedin uses a dozen of cookies and two of them are used to store value for dark mode. Can i save only those two ?

Thanks in advance

I typically opt-out of crash-reporting and privacy invasive features yet when I checked my settings:

"Allow Firefox to send technical and interaction data to Mozilla" was enabled along with "Allow Firefox to install and run studies".

Did I overlook on installation or was I opted-in by a Firefox update?

My ability to access saved passwords on regular sites I visit is lost each time I turn my laptop off. This means each time I log onto Mozilla I have to reset Privacy. This does not happen on Microsoft Edge. As I would really like to use Mozilla I would like to sort it out.

Feels like heavy censorship this was closed right away shortly after creating the thread... https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1390467

Why was this closed? Why would Dropa recommend private browsing mode / incognito mode? This mode has nothing to do with being private, google safe browsing, do i have to say more? Google and privacy don't fit !!! Besides, there are SO MANY youtube videos where people explain why incognito mode IS NOT private, so to be honest that is a really lame response to what i have said in the original post.

It appears that the security settings and others were changed without any notification during a recent update. A login with card number and password were subsequently saved without my knowledge thus exposing my online banking accounts to possible unauthorized use. This should not happen and should be addressed.

• Mozilla makes most of their money by shipping Firefox with Google as default search engine. • Mozilla partners with Facebook to create "privacy preserving advertising technology". • Mozilla now includes a unique identifier to all Firefox downloads/installations. • Mozilla Firefox by default has telemetry enabled without informing the user. • Mozilla Firefox now includes more and more bloat such as Pocket, etc.

None of the above is good in any way... this is serious BS makes me worry about Mozilla and my Privacy while using Firefox, i already switched to Librewolf anyways but i still use Firefox for other purposes. Anyways... did i forget something? Am i missing any headlines above or is that it?

What does everyone think about this? I mean seriously, what do you think?? You folks on this forum obviously are using Firefox, so..?

If i open the Passwordmanager firefox askes my masterpassword. After entering it correctly the list shown is empty. exporting to file doesn't export. It shows where to export and the filename but nothing is saved.

Logins still work using autofill so the data is still stored somewhere.
