Dear community,

User in our engineering dept would like to use Fiefox Developer Edition to develop custom applications. As an IT I need to check application regarding security and support levels. I already check your support options – community and commercial so I would like to send you some questions regarding data protection. Please enter yes or no.

1 The application must not automatically transfer any company proprietary data to external networks (like the Internet): 2 The application should not open listener ports on the client: 3 The application must work with the existing security settings, e.g. no changes in GPO-setting or Edge/Chrome-settings (e.g. they must work without changing ActiveX settings): 4 The application must not reduce the security level of the computer system (e.g. the application must not exchange DLL-s or other files with lower and unpatched versions): 5 The application must work without admin privileges:

Just recently anytime i try to connect to links on my browser that have "Ad" in front of the address eg. Ad.https://www.lowes.com/lowe's®/home I get this prompt

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at www.googleadservices.com. If you entered the right address, you can:

   Try again later
   Check your network connection
   Check that Firefox has permission to access the web (you might be connected but behind a firewall)

Any ideas as to why this is happening and how to fix it ?

I just discovered these directories: 2022-11-26 22:07:20 /media/sf_G_DRIVE/f_files 2022-11-26 21:30:46 /media/sf_G_DRIVE/g_files The files in them are all rwxrwx--- I looked at the images and recognized the sources as being from the Russian Federation archive that I visited at those times via automatic Russian-English translation by Google Translate.

Does anyone have an explanation how these directories and files were created?

Thanks -- Mark.

My windows 11 laptop is set to reboot when updates are available, they happen when I've put the device to sleep. as a result all the tabs I had open are gone upon restart. Unfortunately, the "history->recently closed tabs" and "startup->settings->open previous windows and tabs" are greyed, I can't seem to find a way to fix this. Any ideas? Note, this is a new laptop, I used PCMover to transfer all my data/programs from an older laptop to this new machine, and that machine was windows 10 (if that would make any difference). Also, I do keep firefox on this machine up to date.

Hi,

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox and I really prefer Firefox to be honest. One key thing that is missing for me is the ability to store credit card information which Chrome does. I saw that in the help that this feature is only supported in Canada, France, Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. I live in Israel. It is annoying to enter the full information each time (except CVV). Any plans to roll this out to the rest of the wold? This missing and very convenient feature might force me to go back to Chrome, which I would prefer not to do.

Thanks, Daniel

Containers are useful for using multiple accounts/logins in one browser instance. However, Google Docs does not work correctly. Every time I open a Google Docs/Sheets/etc. file in one container, it loads in a new tab in another container. It does this even if I copy the link into a tab with the correct container. I need to keep my Google accounts separated: one is personal, the other is for work. I like Firefox, and use it to get away from Google in other ways. But I can't escape Google because of work and sharing files with certain people. I hope there is a fix for this. Thanks in advance.

Gets lost (half of them to say the least) every time Firefox updates. I checked the box that ask for saving the logins and password in the Privacy and Security section and this feature has always been active. I must have saved logins for 36 websites and email providers. Very vicious cycle and you know how frustrating this can be. Well you can help by either fixing this bug or do away the feature all together. Because next time this happens AGAIN I'll revert back to good 'ol Google chrome and never get back to using Firefox ever.

I have an HTML page which embeds my Google Calendar. (My school uses Google for Education.) That Google Calendar is set to show event details to members of my school. Using all other browsers that I have tried, this works fine: If a user is signed in to Google and accesses the HTML page, they see the embedded calendar with event details. However, if anyone (including myself) access the page through Firefox, the embedded calendar is shown with the events labeled only as "busy."

I have not tested every possible combination, but I should at least be able to view my own calendar. What could be causing this? I can try modifications either in the Firefox I'm using to view the page, or modifications to the HTML page itself.

Hej

(Jeg er lidt forvirret over at ende et sted, hvor der "tales" engelsk, når jeg startede på den danske supportside ...)

Endelig er det lykkedes mig at undgå, at Edge konstant installerede sig selv. Det har jeg kæmpet med.

Nu vil jeg gerne spørge om Firefox kan hjælpe mig med at undgå den "reklame" for Edge, der vises de fleste gange, når jeg trykker på "Søg" nede i venstre hjørne.

Den irriterer mig, fordi: 1. Jeg aldrig nogensinde skal have Edge 2. Den tager pladsen for vigtigere ting 3. Krydset til at lukke med forsvinder, når jeg bevæger cursoren derop ad.

Kan I mon hjælpe?

I use a web app for learning guitar at https://www.fender.com/play It used the microphone to grade your playing Using Firefox 107.0 (64 bit) under Linux Mint - after a recent upgrade the mic stopped working at this site Fender play says, " Microphone access | We require microphone access to give feedback on your playing | Please click "Allow" or "Share"above to provide it for us."

But 'old' dialog box requesting permission never shows up. Address bar shows 'mic icon', but clicking on it does nothing

If I google "mic test" the mic seems to work fine at a "testing" site

I think Fender actually uses MatchMySound1.com to analyze -- Has some setting permission possibly changed? Works in Firefox 102.5esr using Debian

BTW: = Settings | Privacy & Security | microphone [settings] doesn't seem useful

Thanks in advance
