I was checking my EMAIL the same way I always do: open new tab, click the Gmail button on the new tab. Well once it opened, I then opened my second GMAIL account, and noticed that the two were different. Which forced me to check the URL of my main account and I noticed that they were different. "?zx=s0wp4i3jcokr" was sandwhiched between the number zero and the word "inbox" in the URL. Was I spoofed, and if so, what course of action should I take?

  • NOTE*

Prior to noticing the strange URL my key had been malfunctioning intermittently. Went into inspector to check code, and every word was just random letters. Is this related?

Paste in FF does not work, when editing information on a page in f6s.com. Works fine in other windows in FF, and in f6s.com pages in other browsers (Brave, Edge). Current version of FF (103.02 64b), windows 11, but the problem has been there for a while, including previous versions. What I have tried: Copied from different sources (from the same f6s.com page, another page within FF, third party app). Safe mode. Add-on "paste plain text". Restart FF, PC.

Recently, we started using a tool called SalesLoft (https://salesloft.com). I got involved in helping test it. As part of that, I participated in a demo call where I became a test "sales lead" in Salesloft. A few days later, I accessed part of our website as part of my normal job, when our head of sales sent me a screenshot that had popped up in SalesLoft right then; telling them that I had accessed the site, and which particular URL.

I guess this means that our company website had stored a cookie on my laptop that made me trackable to Salesloft.

This to me, must mean that Firefox is allowing 3rd party (Salesloft) cookies on my machine when I access our company website, that allows Salesloft to know who I am and where I am on the internet.

What am I doing wrong here?

I have the home page (aka new tab page) pinned because it is the only way to get the home page to appear after closing all tabs with atleast one pinned tab active. One annoying thing I found is that search results open in the same tab, which causes the pinned new tab page to get replaced by the search results. This is now how bookmarks and shortcuts behave. Can someone tell me how to get search results (from the "awesome" bar) to open in a new tab ONLY when conducted from the home page/new tab page?

When I have FF open, then close all windows but still have FF active, I hit CMD-T or CMD-N to bring up a new tab or window and nothing happens. I repeat, repeat, repeat and still nothing. THEN if I click on the FF icon in my dock, all the tabs and windows appear in a cascade of windows or tabs like bam, bam, bam.....

This happens on two MacBook Pros around 2016 vintage. This is a new behavior this week.

In most of the apps running on MacOS, you have inside the standard "Window" top menu, a lot of options, like: - Minimize - Zoom - Tile Window to the Left - Tile Window to the Right - Move to <monitor name> ... ...etc

In Firefox (I'm using developer version, 103b), we only get the first 2 options (minimize and zoom). I have set shortcuts to easy move my windows around my monitors, but they don't work in Firefox, because those shortcuts relies on the presence of the menu option "Move to <monitor>".

Is it by design, or is there a way to get this option in the Window menu? I'm attaching the menu clip from Chrome and Firefox to illustrate the issue.

Long story short: windows update sneaked a restart under my nose caused me to lose all my previous session.

I'm attempting to recover the previous session.

I have backed up the unmodified session profile folder. But this profile folder was modified by the restart process obviously, as windows gave firefox "normal shutdown" command. How do I know that? The next time I opened it up, it's "brand new" without the "restore session" interface.

So my idea is to figure out if firefox keeps a track record of previous sessions EVEN IF THE SHUTDOWN WAS PROPER.

If it does, well I'll have to figure out a way to "trick" firefox to restore it. If it doesn't, well I'll have to manually restore it by sifting through the history.

I repeat, the key here is for me to find out whether or not firefox always keep a record of previous session somewhere.

So my question is, does it? Or does it purge all the previous session clean as long as the shutdown was deemed "correct"?

Hi,

For quite some time I've been having issues with sound in Firefox, specifically that there isn't any. I've tried some things to fix the problem but haven't found any solutions. The problem is isolated to Firefox as Chrome and other apps will play video with sound. It's also not limited to certain websites. What's interesting is when I open the soundmixer, it shows a green bar going up and down as if there is audio playing. I've also tried troubleshooting mode without any success. Other things I've tried are: - Updating drivers (everything was up to date) - Re-installing Firefox - Allowing Firefox to automatically play video with sound

Any ideas?

Greetings, Gavin W
