How can I prevent websites from tracking my mouse cursor? I was searching for the question for a long time and couldn't find any answers.

Basically. I open a site, I want to click on Back or close the tab and it sends a pop up like "wait, don't go!" etc.

Any ideas? I think about extension or option in settings/configs.

I guess like my question is very unique or was skipped by search engines.

I hope for help.

Does the Firefox browser collect customer information even when in secret mode?

Google was sued for collecting customer information even in secret mode. So I'm going to change my browser from Chrome to Firefox.

Doesn't Firefox ever collect customer information in secret mode?

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.

For the second time in the last two weeks, Firefox has deleted all my saved passwords when the program has updated. This happens frequently and is REALLY ANNOYING. How do I stop it? I am now going to restore the files from back up, about half an hour wasted.

Thanks and look forward to hearing back from someone.

When I turned on the machine today (Dell PC running W10) I had to sign in to Walmart to check on a delivery. I entered username and password and again pressed enter. I was given a new, blank set of entry spaces for username and password. I could not sign in. Every time after correctly making entries it would just cycle back to the beginning. This has never happened before, even once. Anything in Firefox 100 I need to disable to use it? There's no error message so no reason for a screenshot.

Hi folks, I'm having trouble with importing old firefox stored passwords to new account. I got all the old data (logins.json, key3, key4,...)

I tried copying the logins.json and key3/key4.dbf file into the firebird profile root directory but they dont seem to load. It doesn't show anything no matter if I'm logged into a firebird account or not.

Since the old files are only a week old I'm guessing I shouldn't need to convert files.

When I convert logins.json file to csv I see the info is there.

What's the catch?

I am using build 100.0 Mac OSX Mojave 10.14.6. When I go to www.papajohns.com and try to login it goes nowhere. I tried looking up the problem, which was to go to Settings and allow cookies for that site and now I'm able to login. The additional problem I'm having is in the purchase page, I have put in all my information including credit card information. When I click place order, instead of completing the transaction, it takes me back to the same page I entered my payment information and never completes the transaction. I have tried it on my iPhone through Safari and I was able to login and complete the transaction. I would prefer to do this on my desktop computer running Firefox rather than my iPhone. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, John

I can log into my Firefox account on my Macbook Air with my email address and password, I can log into Firefox on my iPhone via pair, but I cannot log into Firefox on my Mac Mini using the same email address and password, the Mac Mini keeps saying my password is incorrect.

I'm running Firefox version 100 on both my Macbook Air and my Mac Mini. The sync feature works fine between my MacBook Air and my iPhone. The Firefox account works excellent between my MB Air and iPhone, but I would like to have my bookmarks, history and passwords synced to my Mac Mini as well.

The "only" way I know how to log into my Firefox account on my Mac Mini is using my email address and password. The same email address and password works fine on my MB Air and iPhone. But when I enter my email address and password on my Mac Mini, I get the "Incorrect password" message. I have carefully re-entered my password several times with no success.

I am concerned about "resetting" my password as the dialogue suggests I may lose my bookmarks, logins, and passwords. I really, really, don't want to do that. Besides, they work fine on my MacBook Air and iPhone.

I don't have a resolution to this issue. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance, Glenn Cooper

Select Tools/Options/Advanced Icon/Encryption Tab Under Protocols select check boxes for Use SSL3.0 and Use TLS1.0 Select Privacy Icon In the Firefox will drop-down list box select Use custom settings for history Select options accept cookies from sites and Cleat history when Firefox closes De-select Remember search and form history and Remember what I have downloaded Click OK

I cannot find "Tools" Can you please tell me where to look for it and will the other items be under tools.

I need this help ASAP because I'm trying to fill out a form for a background check and security clearance that is due today.

Any and all help will be appreciated.

Thank you.

I have had it with Firefox playing cop. I really have. I have a site that I visit frequently but these past two updates have now broken my ability to sign into the site at all, even in private mode. All I get is the shield and human icons with the strike-through and the error message on the user name/password field that says: This Connection Is Not Secure. Logins Entered Here Could Be Compromised. Learn More.

I've hit the escape button, tried private windows, done everything I can including resetting which was my last resort and which I hate doing, there's no more whitelist, no way to bypass anything, this is totally unacceptable that I cannot get past this. Firefox is becoming more useless to me as they try to become more and more in control of what I can and cannot do. If there is no override to this, then I have to find a different browser because it's pretty useless to use one browser for some sites and another for other sites, don't you think? So if someone has a workaround for this problem, can you please tell me what it is?

Login auto-fill not working on Airbnb.co.nz site

I have saved username and password for airbnb.co.nz. It does not fill in the username box in the login pagehttps://www.airbnb.co.nz/?_set_bev_on_new_domain=1651793110_NDIyMTVlNjdjMDEw https://www.airbnb.co.nz/?_set_bev_on_new_domain=1651793110_NDIyMTVlNjdjMDEw.

Auto-fill works fine for all other sites logins. Google uses similar 2 step login layout, when I click in the username box a list of usernames for google site drops down. This does not happen with Airbnb.

The problem occurs in multiple profiles including a new profile set up to test, all history and cookies cleared. First the browser offers to save the login with username empty. (Manually filled in username then saved.) Then logged out, login page username is empty. Does not autofill even when I start typing the saved username.

What is causing this? Is it happening on the main .com site or just the .co.nz site?. ( I am unable to test the .com site because I am in New Zealand, airbnb.com site redirects automatically to airbnb.co.nz url above) How can I fix it please?

After the last update, I've been getting news story pop ups in the bottom right corner. How do I shut this off? I have gone into Settings and shut off the various notification and push options that always seem to turn on after updates, but it continues. I never got the pop ups until right after the last update finished.

Not sure the design team can do anything about this, but...

I just got a full page pop up with a link to "Update to the Latest Version of Firefox," which I did not click because I was suspicious. 1) Normally the notice to update is a small rectangle in the right upper corner. 2) I had just updated yesterday.

Firefox reports that it is up to date,

My security is set to "Block pop-up windows."

The pop-up opened when I clicked this news article linked by a member in a private Facebook group:

https://news.0censor.com/with-leak-over-roe-v-wade-warren-demands-constitution-be-ratified-aoc-demands-nuke-action-or-primary-out-members/?fbclid=IwAR2gfhCc8h2w013ST2g43ev-UuojBuChJ1LlfH_K18JVj8KFggfhzrlkuSM

When I clicked the link again to test it, only the requested article opened.

The pop-up had the Firefox logo and appeared legitimate to me in every way.

Sorry, I did not think to copy the update link before I closed the pop-up.

I installed an extension from a website(not from addons.mozilla.org) and found it a bit suspicious so after around using it for 1 minute immediately removed it... So will an extension be able to access root/admin permissions if it had some malicious script executed(I am using debian) or can extension access system files,modify,delete or install/download anything without the users' permission?

Thanks in advance AVC
