I am continually getting his Windows Security sign in box when I try to use my stored credit card info from Firefox: Firefox is trying to to use stored credit card information. Complete access to this windows account below.

I tried creating a Firefox master password, but that did not help. How do I get rid of this? It makes having store credit cards almost useless as I have to enter my windows sign on and password everytime I want to use a credit card.

This is mostly a heads-up, in case others run into this problem.

For months I have been unable to log into my healthcare site (https://www.medicare.uhc.com/ via https://www.healthsafe-id.com/) on Firefox (latest PC version). I contacted UHC about the problem. All they did was recommend using a different browser. They passed the problem to level two, who I never heard from.

After many different attempts to localize the problem, I discovered the problem was with the Privacy Possum add-on. I am opening this so that others might find it if they run into the problem. I have removed that add-on, and have provided feedback to Firefox that it does not seem to be adequately supported at this time. I think they should remove it from availability, if they can.

In Firefox>Privacy and Security, there are two very similar looking settings regarding routine cookie destruction:

Cookies and Site Data>check Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. Manage Permissions [A site list with Block, Allow, Allow for Session]

History>Firefox will Use custom settings for History>Clear history when Firefox closes. Settings: check Cookies

My current understanding is that Cookies and Site Data potentially provides exclusions from the cookie carnage, whereas the History setting per above would delete all cookies. Is this correct as far as it goes? What I keep wondering is why the topic of cookie destruction when closing cannot be handled in one area of the Settings layout, instead of in two different areas.

Hi there!

I have been having trouble with Firefox continuing to autoplay videos even with preferences set to "Block Audio and Video."

If I go to twitter.com or elsewhere Firefox will show that auto play is disabled, but videos will autoplay with no audio. I would just like to get this feature working as autoplaying videos are incredibly annoying!

Thanks for any help!

My financial firm rep said they use Glance Technologies (aka Perk Labs) for screen sharing with their client devices. However, the screen sharing could not be made to work today with the rep on the phone, even though I unchecked the button in my Firefox Privacy settings for blocking popups. I am now wondering if some other Privacy settings in Firefox are known to create issues with Glance Technologies screen sharing. It would also be interesting to find out more generally about Firefox settings and screen sharing using other screen sharing technology firms.

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

I'm using Firefox 77.0.1

In earlier versions of Firefox, the password needed for a local log-on to an ip address was auto filled. Unfortunately with the latest version it needs me to manually enter the user name and password every time.

I've tried editing the Firefox about:config where a previous suggestion was to change the "signon.autofillForms.http" to "True", the local web address in question is http://172.20.10.9 and may therefore be regarded as insecure.

Microsoft Edge has no issue with saving and using the user name and password.

Thanks

Hi.

I have bought a new laptop and have installed the Firefox browser but have forgotton my Firefox password. The password reset email from Firefox does not render as HTML; the email just presents as plain text. So, I cannot see the password reset link.

I saw a 'hack' that suggested copying and pasting the email text into Notepad and save as a *.eml file but Notepad doesn't have the *.eml option. I'm on Windows 10.

Any ideas how to resolve this issue.

Many thanks.
