Looking for a solution/work around to the new FF protocols which REFUSE exceptions, which has cut me off from streaming from LEGITIMATE web sites like https://news.stlpublicradio.org/ and other sites as well.

I have used FireFox since Netscape, but am now using Chrome which works fine.

Security is great, but when the security Trumps the ability to actually USE the web sites, then how is that different than just blocking the "offending" website.

You should ask yourselves why the FF market share is so low.

You guys need to come out of the clouds and smell the digital earth where most of us dwell. I love you all for what you do, but you seem to be blowing it. Please get it together.

Are disable Add-ons really disable?

I've installed lots of add-ons thru out the years and when I'm not using them, or just didn't like them, I just go to the "Add-ons" settings and press on "disable" thinking that's the end of the story. But I've become more privacy and security concerned as time passes and now I'm wondering if I should delete all the add-ons that I no longer have any use for, (and some useful ones but are very sketchy).

What I mean is that some add-ons "require" permission to everything you do in your web browser "to work properly" and well that's beyond sketchy. I recently used an old add-on and realized it worked perfectly even after over 2 years of it being disable, I mean even after multiple firefox updates. I realized that the add-on had "automatic updates" turned on so... even disabled it was updating in the background... therefore it was somewhat active.

Now I'm wondering if all of this sketchy add-ons that I've installed thru out the years that need all kinds of weird "permissions" like access to well... -everything- (passwords, history, credit cards, etc...) have been collecting all this data even after I disable them years ago?

Any site I go to such as my utility companies that have a link for me to open and view my bill while logged into my online account are prevented from opening by Firefox. Their help articles define the pop-up window as a window that opens automatically. That is not what I'm talking about. I am selecting the link. I am giving the site permission to open the window. It is not automatic. Google Chrome, Microsoft edge, no other browser has this problem. please help.

I have saved many logins and passwords in the password manager. When I open a page which needs these details, they never auto fill. I have checked that all necessary options are checked. I'm baffled as to what I should try next.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

When I download a document from an email or a website, I receive a message that Firefox has successfully "sanitized" the document. Then I discover that the hyperlinks, such as an RSVP, no longer work. How can I stop Firefox from destroying hyperlinks?

When I go to Firefox help under Privacy there is a line at the top saying my browser is being managed by my organization. I DO NOT HAVE AN ORGANIZATION CONNECTED TO THIS COMPUTER!

The link seems to go to Webroot which I do have - but that makes no sense.

hey you guys,

I have a VBS script that dumps all cache data fro the FF dir in windows, however it keeps specific files so I don't have to go through the frustration of re-entering passwords and stuff in HTML forms. I now wanted to get of all saved logins for the first time, however when I dumped all the cache data from the settings menu, all of the info was retained in FF. I had to manually remove everything from here:

about:logins.

Where is the setting to get rid of **everything** stored when dumping the cache in the settings? (see attached images for the places and/or scripts I am currently using to attempt to do this).

thanks!

Geachte,

Heb al een tijd te maken met volgende foutmelding in mijn Telenet Webmail, zijnde ... 'Niet beveiligd' - mail.telenet.be/zimbra....

Heb reeds contact genomen met Microsoft Windows 10 Ondersteuningsteam, met Telenet zelf, met mijn pc verkoper/IT-er, maar niemand is blijkbaar in staat dit probleem op te lossen, want vandaag krijg ik die foutmelding nog steeds te zien in Telenet Webmail.

Wie kan voor dé oplossing nu zorgen ?

Dank bij voorbaat voor feedback.


Met vriendelijke groeten, Freddy Van De Velde
