2FA Sometimes Only Accepts Hardware Key for Biometrics Instead of Touch ID

When choosing biometrics for 2-factor authentication, sometimes Firefox will only prompt for a physical hardware key, and Touch ID does not work. Support for built-in biometrics is inconsistent.

For reference, I am using Mac OS Sonoma 14.4.1 with an ARM processor.

"Przeglądarka jest zarządzana przez Twoją organizację " taka informacja jest po zainstalowaniu przeglądarki - była ona przyczyną dla której na jakiś czas odinstalowałem Firefoksa gdy sie pojawiła po kolejnej aktualizacji. Co to znaczy ? Jestem osobą prywatną i nie chcę by moja przeglądarka była przez kogoś administrowana. Jak usunąć tę "Twoją organizację" z MOJEJ przeglądarki z Mojego komputera?

My Firefox browser recently automatically updated. Subsequent to the update, I could no longer upload photos and insert (in-line) them into the body of gmail emails. It would indicate that "There was an upload error" (see attached photo). The photos are all small JPGs about 300kb in size. This issue was not present in older versions of Firefox.

Troubleshooting and reading a bunch of articles indicated the problem was not with Google gmail, but instead a fault with the latest version of Firefox.

I then used both Microsoft Edge and Chrome browser, which allowed me to successfully insert inline photos, so it is clear the issues are with the latest version of Firefox.

Is there a work-around or patch I can download for Firefox to fix this, or, should I just quit using Firefox and instead use Micro-Edge or Chrome for emails?

Unable to connect

An error occurred during a connection to www.counterpunch.org.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web.

So, what should the network connections be (I haven't a clue)! As far as I know the configuration has been automatic up to now; for all other sites it works just fine! Yours is esoteric and has lost me.

Because I made a mistake in purchasing a Motorola cell phone I'm having to visit Lenovo/Motorola's website way more frequently than I'd prefer. So far, each time I arrive at their website I'm greeted with a message that says something akin to "It looks like you're in Romania. Would you rather use out Romanian website?" I finally got annoyed enough to ask "Why?" and was told to check by browser settings.

I just checked my Firefox browser settings and the only thing I could see that would make an addled person or programmer think I'm in 'Romania' is the setting for the default font which is set to "Times New Roman". To squeeze a font name and come up with "Romania" as a location is a bit of a stretch in my opinion, but I've seen more asinine things done...

(It's a good thing I don't have my default font set to "Tahoma" as Motorola might think I'm accessing their website from Washington State's Mount Rainier whose Native American name is Tahoma. But then again, that'd probably be too much of a stretch for Motorola, bless their little hearts.

Is there any other setting(s) I should check?

Message is: Media could not be loaded, either because server or network failed or because format is not supported.

IMO not a network issue......

I support my organisation's fleet of Windows computers, and historically we have automatically deployed the 32bit version of Firefox onto these devices. I would like to migrate all instances of Firefox to 64bit, but have found that installing 64bit Firefox on a device that already has 32bit Firefox dies not remove the 32bit version form C:\Program Files (x86)\ and just installs the new 64bit version into C:\Program Files\. This causes either the 64bit version to launch with no user profile loaded, or the user receives a message that they are launching an older version of Firefox. We can easily automate the uninstallation of 32bit Firefox during the install, but is there a way that we can programmatically load the users existing Firefox profile into the newly installed 64bit version of Firefox? I will be deploying the installation to around 7,500 computers, so a manual work-around isn't an option.

I'm having a problem where certain websites does not show up as shortcuts on the startpage. Like for example reddit.com or twitter.com does not appear even though I visit those pages often and more than any other page. It doesn't make sense that a random website shows up immediately as I visit it once, but not the websites I visit often. So I have to type in manually in the search bar to get there instead of just clicking the shortcut on the startpage.

I COULD pin the websites on the startpage, but the pictures only show up as the automated pictures such as "R" or "T" for Reddit and Twitter respectively. I'm also having problems using my own pictures for the shortcuts and I'd rather fix the problem instead of having to pin websites as shortcuts. It also looks a bit ugly in my opinion.

This started happening after I switched Microsoft accounts on my PC and started using Firefox on another user account. By the time I switched, I was logged into the same account on two different users on my PC, and I synchronized several times. That other logged in user is now removed from my Firefox account and I also completely deleted the other user on my PC to free up space. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and deleted all the files on my PC, but it still doesn't work. I have checked in about:profiles and it says there is a "default-release" and "default" profile.
