With security concerns on the rise, our company has required that all software installed on their systems go through an approval process.

As part of that approval process, they want to know the following:

  • Is the software signed by a trusted third party?
  • Is the software downloaded from a US hosted facility?
  • Does the software perform call backs to the software maker?

Thank you!

Background:

Was forced to upgrade to version 65 which broke the tabs on bottom setting. Tried to install a ESR version but it kept crashing. Went back to version 64 which was immediately forced to upgrade to the broken version again (which I didn't allow).

The problem is this. The people who have implemented this forced upgrade feature are probably using Windows 10 (forced updating) and are used to being treated like second class citizens by Microsoft. Forced upgrading is completely inappropriate. I've used browsers since Netscape, all of the Firefox versions, rarely use any other browser. Never had a problem except with your forced updates.

Lucky for me I found the registry fix for admins to disable updates. Reasonably inconvenient but a hell of a lot better than putting up with forced updates that break the browser.

Question:

How about bringing back the choice to upgrade. How about, at least giving two reminders to upgrade and then disabling the messaging. This messaging is extremely disrespectful - i.e. we are going to keep on annoying you until you upgrade (to a broken system).

Well, I've been doing Firefox sync for a long time, and it seems to work pretty well. But I'm a little confused. What EXACTLY is going on? Note: I do NOT want to know how to set up sync. I know that.

First question. When sync is automatic, when exactly does it do it? I pull down and do "Open menu" with the three bars, and then hover over the sync arrows-in-the round. It might say "Last sync: 5 minutes ago", and it might say "Last sync: 5 seconds ago". Nothing happened on my Firefox five seconds ago or five minutes ago. So who told it to sync? What determines when it is supposed to sync? I presume Firefox automatically does a sync if you change a bookmark or password.

Second question. What exactly is a sync? I gather that if the sync file (containing bookmarks and everything) in the cloud is younger than the local sync file, the local sync file will be replaced by the one in the cloud. If the sync file in the cloud is older than the local sync file, that sync file in the cloud is replaced by the local one. Is that what's going on? That is, it's all about the time stamp? Do not tell me "Sync lets you share all of your data and preferences (such as your bookmarks, history, passwords, open tabs and installed add-ons) across all your devices." I know that.

Third question. Let's suppose I want sync to ONLY be manual. As in, it will ONLY sync when I do Tools>Sync Now. How do I set it up for that?

Dear Firefox,

It's the first time I am using FireFox! Seriously. For long years I've been an avid Opera and then Vivaldi fan, unfortunately, recently Vivaldi started to become even less compatible with many sites, and I personally started to think more about security and privacy in the Web. I've found that many tech sites recommend using new FireFox as it is as fast as is configurable with its add-ons. That said, I've found this list of 13 add-ons that would help secure my privacy:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/mozilla/privacy-matters/

Unfortunately, I am no IT wizard, but a simple user, and I cannot tell if I should istall all 13 of them? Or maybe the overlap in some usages? And futhermore, should I add an addblocker to it?

I would appreciate all the info and help you guys provide :) Thank you in advance.

I understand the basic concepts of tracking protection but I've been unable to find answers to a few specific questions. I found some documentation here in the questions / answers section but it didn't provide all the answers.

1. Do I need to clear existing cookies to remove the myriad of sites already tracking me before turning on tracking protection? Or, will turning it on do an immediate filter on my existing cookies?

2. Will turning off tracking stop sites that I want to retain login information for from retaining the "login" cookie infor i.e. are we close to a full "cookie block" with anti-tracking? Or does FFox have some creative algorithm (or list) that allows it to distinguish between tracking cookies and less offensive cookies? Concurrently, is there a way to allow a "tracking cookie" if I need it to retain information for a site I'm comfortable with?

3. One specific tracking question: Will eliminating tracking cookies stop (specifically) Google's cross site advertising, where you look at a product on site A (who shares that info via google) and then a little later google's advertising mechanism pops up those products when you're at site B?

How long would it take changes made to bookmarks on one device to sync and be reflected on another device? (same Mozilla account signed in on both devices)

I changed a couple names of my bookmarked pages so that it would shorten the pop-up menus and sub-pop-up menus that appear whenever I hover over different folders of "Bookmarks" I've saved. I'm seeing those changes reflected on the device on which I made them but not on my other computer where I'm also signed in to the same Mozilla account.

Any idea why those changes aren't syncing and being reflected across all my devices? Or... how long do such changes typically take to sync?

Thanks! -Nate

Hello,

I work with individuals who use screen readers so all access to the computer is via keyboard shortcuts rather than any "point and click" with the mouse.

At one time, I know that I could throw focus to the "hamburger stack"/"three line" open menu button via a keyboard shortcut. As an example, in Chrome, I can throw focus on the "Customize and control Google Chrome" main menu button in the main toolbar by hitting ALT. Now I know that ALT under Firefox causes the classic menu bar to appear, but I could swear that there was some way to throw focus to the open menu button via the keyboard and that, if one needed to, to use the left arrow/right arrow buttons to traverse any add-on buttons that are to the left of the open menu button.

I have tried everything I can think of, but cannot get focus on the open menu button or any of the add-on buttons located to the right of the address/search box.

The add-on Read Aloud is incredibly helpful when one is a screen reader user, but only if one can get to the button that allows it to be activated, and that button always ends up in the area to the right of the address/search box and to the right of the open menu button. The only way I have been able to activate it in the current version of Firefox is via point and click, which is utterly useless because my students cannot point and click.

The collection of buttons that I can find no way to navigate to via the keyboard are enclosed in orange in the included image. They could be for any add-ons, not the specific ones from this screen shot.

If anyone can tell me how I can get to these buttons and move among them using only the keyboard I would really appreciate it.


edit: fixed so there is no horizontal scrollbars due to spaces before start of each part.
