I have observed that work offline is possible only when site has been verified which makes it nightmare. If I restart the browser w/o connection any site cannot be verified and, hence, offline does not work!

Please, tell me how to disable verification: 1) in general, and 2) while working offline.

PS: From version 57 if I remember correct, no multi rows, no extra Tool Bar, no Tab Mix Plus, no Session Manager, no automatic download start with DownThemAll!, no work offline, etc. Firefox >= 57 has destroyed the best UI experience!

Hello

Is it somehow possible to lock my settings by a password or to make a login necessary to open the settings. I run my firefox on different devices and everyone who uses it can easely see all the saved password, change all my settings and so on. I don't want to log off every time I quit the browser.

Thank you for your quick response.

Greetings

Chris

Why does Firefox feed so much data to Google?

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

Dear all,

how can I tell whether my version of Firefox already has received the shipment of Enhanced Tracking Protection 2.0? Is there any notation somewhere? (I searched for it, but did not find anything, neither in the ETP settings or in the Protections Dashboard, nor in about:config.)

Please advice how to find out. Thank you!

A while ago I asked a question about data collection (telemetry). It was referenced to what chrome was doing, but what I found disturbed me. When you turn off telemetry, Firefox still collects this data and archives it. The answer was to alter a preference to fix it.

Well now I have done that thanks to contributors cor-el & RobertJ.

So now my expectation is that Firefox does not collect Telemetry data at all. It does not send it to Firefox. It does not store or archive it locally.

Good.

I got a popup with recommendations for extensions features. There is an option to turn both off.

But how does it know what recommendations to make and how often? Well you see Firefox collects data about this. Where I have been and the sorts of data my browser has encountered.

I have specifically told Firefox not to collect Telemetry data. I had to tell Firefox not to archive it.

I have now told Firefox not to make recommendations.

SO.....

HOW DO I STOP FIREFOX COLLECTING THIS DATA IN THE FIRST PLACE?

I shouldn't have to. Shouldn't Firefox stop collecting data either remotely or locally if I turned off these recommendations?

I love Firefox but this sort of back door, sneaking is starting to turn me off.

I expect it from Google or Microsoft, given their absolute lack of integrity, not from Firefox.

I tried opening my outlook email which was supposed to redirected me to my school outlook site. Usually It worked when I do that but for some reason now it doesn't work. I tried opening it in my other browsers and it works. Only Firefox couldn't open it.

I found this site https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1028755 and i tried to do the steps on how to fix it, but it still didn't work. I still couldn't go in the site. Is there any way for me to be able to access it again? what should I do?

Hello,

  How do I change my security back to Standard from Strict.  I recently changed it to Strict because I thought there were too many cookies and Ads when browsing.   Now when I got to my websites like Banking and Medical they have to text me a code first to complete the login.

I can't remember what I did or where I was just know it's a pain and need to go back to before.

Thanks, Roni
