On gmail "https://mail.google.com/mail"

I am already logged into my main account, when I click on my profile picture in the top right in order to add accounts/sign into other gmail accounts, I get this error:

"403. That’s an error.

We're sorry, but you do not have access to this page. That’s all we know."

I tried clearing cookies and no help.

Bare in mind this is on a fresh firefox install on a new desktop, I have been using firefox on my other desktop with no gmail issues like this.

I have noticed that my browser saves certain data that was filled into forms on websites such as contact info, or 2FA codes. Of course, the all options for Logins and Passwords as well as Forms and Autofill are turned off. So I wonder, what causes this behavior? I would maybe think these are some cookies, but after clearing them and deleting all site data this still happens. For 2FA codes this is harmless. but I'm concerned Firefox may do this for passwords too. Anyway, why would I need to save info of TOTP?

Note: Example is for SimpleLogin.

Within the Add-on Manager by clicking Manage Extension Shortcuts - you can make shortcuts for add-ons to perform specific functions via the buttons on your keyboard, but I want to actually be able to use the buttons on my actual mouse rather than the keyboard.

Does anybody know if this is possible? Currently when I try to use my mouse to input a 'shortcut' in the 'Type a shortcut' box nothing works.

Are there any about:config settings or add-ons that can enable me to use my Mouse to make shortcuts for my add-ons?

If I go to Safelite and start scheduling an appointment, navigating through that set of webpages will cause my computer to green screen/crash. The landing page at https://safelite.com asks for a zip code, and submitting that form puts you into the scheduling flow; after entering some details about a vehicle, I can click back and continue a few times (less than ten) to make my computer crash. I was able to reproduce the issue in troubleshooting mode. I also tried the same steps in Chrome, but it did not produce a crash.

This computer has had an issue with crashing in this manner for a while now, but this is the first thing I've noticed consistently causes a crash. I'm not expecting a solution, but I am hoping to close in on the issue; whether or not Firefox is the source here is questionable, but it does seem highly entangled.

Just recently, within the last two weeks (today is 12/22/23) Firefox it taking a long time to start. Firefox version is 121.0 (64 Bit) Windows 11 Home Ver: 22H2, OS Build 22621.2861 This is a reasonably new Acer Nitro PC (August 2023) with a solid state drive.

When I double click the Firefox Icon a large white box opens on my PC and remains that way for 10-15 seconds, then the white box fills-in with the Firefox screen. Once opened, Firefox works perfectly.

I tried the troubleshooter and Firefox starts instantly, as it did previously. I have no Extensions, Themes, or Plugins. I even disabled: OpenH264 Video Codec and Widevine Content Decryption Module. I tried Google and DuckDuck as the Search engine with no difference.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

So for folks who hand wrote thousands of lines of Actionscript code for Adobe Flash, it is incredibly upsetting and frustrating that a witch hunt went after Flash which we believe was part of a tactic by google to ensure its ads cannot as easily be blocked. Specifically google used all this "modern web" nonsense to become the monopolistic browser in place of internet explorer and to use that "power" explicitly to bend the future web to their will.

This is so upsetting, there are not words to describe it. And the fact that the "answer" is that folks who spent years and thousands of lines of code for Flash, now "simply need to completely re code everything from scratch in a new language" is offensive beyond recognition.

Please consider removing this "standard" response language or at least acknowledge the awful burden that was placed on folks by the decision to join the rest to remove the most popular web technology that helped build the internet, because google must serve everyone ads. It is just gross.

Honestly, we thought Firefox would defy the witch hunt and keep flash working to differentiate and look after the poor developers who suffered from this terrible, terrible action.

p.s. on the day Flash was officially killed off, chrome had more active "severe" security vulnerabilities than Flash. Thus, chrome is objectively less secure than Flash. I wonder how much google spent on paying news companies to post stuff about how "insecure" flash is and the stupid "modern web." I wonder if said "news" companies checked the claims, or just took the payment and posted their "sponsored content."

I run Firefox 121.0 on Windows 10 Pro. I use a VPN (ExpressVPN) and normally run Ghostery and uBlock Origin. When I log onto Townhall.com and enter my VIP credentials all is fine. However, when I read an article I should be able to access the comments. I cannot in Firefox and this is something that has occurred about 3-4 weeks ago. For years I have not had any problem like this with Firefox.

I tested VIP access with my iPhone - works fine. I tried Vivaldi - works fine. I tried Chrome - works fine. I try Firefox - fails!

I ran Firefox in "TroubleShoot" mode, with all add-ons turned off and it also fails. Even when I run Vivaldi I have Ghostery and ad blocking turned on, but Ghostery does allow townhall.com on their whitelist.

I've send emails to Townhall.com and am not getting any responses. However, I was having the issue with all devices but all have been fixed except with Firefox. So, I have no idea why this is an issue with Firefox but not with any other device.

Any thoughts?

This might just be a blind thing, I use the NVDA screen reader, but when I sign in to firefox, my password is 12 letters long, but when I look on my settings page, it's 18 characters long, is this normal?

I can log in using my 12 letter password and it's not a master password, I don't have one of those.

After i moved to another location and getting now internet via fiber and via fritz!-router 7530 i have issues with readability in many cases: Google News, Mailbox at GMX. To the 7530 my notebook is normally connected via WLAN. Text is in places often not shown, or colored in black or green or magenta, Images are often in places or complete filled with flicker (white, green, magenta, black). I suspected the WLAN connection and searched and read the ffox-help und tried some things, but nothing helped. Using a long cable from 7530 to nb has no effect.

Sheesh, I tried to append to another question but failed. Just as well... I am using a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop with Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS. Every time I put my laptop in standby mode (close the display) then reopen the Firefox window expands beyond the left edge of the computer. I tried some solutions offered on the forum but they did not help. Now when this happens I hit the maximize button and the Firefox display actually shrinks to a small size. That's counterintuitive but... When I hit the maximize button again the Firefox window expands to the correct size. So it's now only a minor annoyance. It seems like there ought to be a simple solution to this but I haven't found it yet.
