I was working with my Internet Provider and in an attempt to solve and issue they had me delete my History, Cache, Cookies, and so on. After doing so, Firefox will no longer remember anything from my History. Every time Firefox closes it erases all of it. I have to login to my email 25 times a day now. I have changed all the settings that Help has listed and they have changed nothing. Please, Help.

I use a separate container for gmail, so google can't connect my gmail usage to google analytics showing up in other pages. But when I open a link from gmail, I would like it to go to a separate container, either one container per site, or just one big container for all links opened from gmail. For example, someone sends me a link to a nytimes.com article and when I click on it, I want to not have to type in my nytimes login again but I also want it to be separate from my gmail login. This seems not to be possible in vanilla firefox (am I wrong?) but is there an extension that allows this behavior? If my entire question is based on a naive idea of privacy, I'm open to hearing that too. :) Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello. I am a developer and I'm trying to whitelist a website I'm currently working on from tracking protection in order to prevent blocking of xhr requests. The problem is that, although I have specifically disabled tracking protection for the domain, the resources are still blocked after refreshing tabs. Looking at the exceptions list I can see that it features https://client.enterprise but the intended domain is http, without any encryption. Could that cause the issue?

I have this continuing request to update passwords and have seen a thread on this but have no duplicate passwords for any account.

The problem has another twist to it. There is a password set in the option that is not the one I have just used to sign in.The password is very long and repeatedly uses the text "padding ****"

Just wonder if anyone else has seen this?

When I try to log in to My BT, with correct details, I get a page come up with 'arcot authentication adapter controller'. It stays on this blank page and will not log me in. I am using W10 and FF 79.0.

If I enter the same details on my other PC, which uses Waterfox, it goes straight in.

Any help would be appreciated.

Firefox has this login popup window to log into apps. This works great. I have a app that I use it to open to get it going. My used need it check into the app with a 4 digit number and the we do not need this window to popup withe the login to the app itself. Is there a way to have this disable this app inside the program? I have been using the security feature for years at home to log into apps but never have it show the login inside the app. Oh, this issue is a Linux version of Firefox. 79.0 (64 Bit) I know removing this URL form my Security list would solve this but I want to use it to open the app, just not inside of it. Picture attached. Marty

"logins and passwords" feature has wrong "Last used: June 9, 2020" for every saved login, unless login was used after June 9, 2020.

This isn't fatal, but it does prevent testing each login for being fresh or stale.

Is any one else getting "pop under" ads? My Firefox is updated to the latest version, with pop-ups blocked and strict controls. But recently ads have been appearing at the bottom of the page, which must be clicked to go away. They only appear at the bottom of the page, and started appearing within the last 6 weeks or so.

As Firefox successfully wards off ads on the rest of the page, I'm wondering why the bottom of the page is an exception, and what if anything can be done about it. I have checked and re-checked my settings to block pop-ups, tracking, etc, but this seems to be something else.

Thanks!

Hi I visited a site last night and this morning I received an email from them asking if I'd found what I was looking for. I am used to getting spam mails and my mail filter usually deals with these but I've not had this before. the reason for my concern is that I had to update firefox yesterday and reset all my settings to my preferences which includes private settings. is there something I've missed to prevent this happening again. obviously unsolicited emails which breach my spam filters could be quite embarrassing
