So I'm seeing unknown access to bsscommerce.com well as other sites being initiated by script/extension. This is a major problem with Firefox. Lack of Security. Also, it won't show which script/extensions initiated these requests. Thanks for nothing. Talking about security and privacy is CHEAP.

I play cards at cardzmania.com using Firefox. If I exit Firefox and reload it, cardzmania remembers exactly where I was. Formerly, I could stop this by clearing the cache files at c:/users/user_name/AppData/Local/Temp andc:/users/user_name/AppData/Local/Mozilla. This no longer works. Even if I use Privazer to clear temporary Internet files, cardzmania remembers me.

In short, Mozilla is storing user data in a file I can't find and empty.

This disturbs me.

I'm not terribly concerned about cardzmania taking over my computer for nefarious purposes or spying on me, but the inability to find and delete files that permit cardzmania to remember who I am means other programs could do the same.

Hi! I have the strictest anti-tracking protection enabled and have one question: Firefox prevents cross-site cookies by default, but if I install Firefox Containers, does that mean that those cross-site cookies will be allowed inside that container, even if they're not when browsing outside of any container? My concern is that, if that happened, using Firefox containers would actually diminish privacy instead of increasing it (for example, Facebook would be able to use Instagram cookies because they're in the same container, even though it wouldn't if I hadn't installed Containers). Thanks a lot! Love the Firefox community <3

I've used the "run" system and open the %temp% and deleted the temp files. It didn't delete the 137KB issue. I've used the "C:\WINDOWS\system32\cleanmgr.exe" to clean "windows C drive " and deleted more temp files. I've gone to "Settings" in Firefox and click on "Cookies and Site Data" and then click on "Clear Data" and that didn't delete the 137KB issue. What is odd about this there's no name on this file. The 137KB comes up at "Cookies and Site Data; "Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 137 KB of disk space". Could it be "BIOS"? It' been asking me to upload this software and I always click "later".


Please help! ! ! Sincerely, Dan Yee

When I attempt to access several websites, I am prompted to turn off my ad blocker. As I have not added a third-party software or extension that does such, I assume it is part of Firefox proper. Search as I might, I cannot find any specific reference to such a thing in "Settings". SO...how can I temporarily disable the 'Ad Blocker' device that is part of Firefox? The 'TEMPORARY' part is important, as I do greatly value the function!

Tell me how to remove FreeTestNow from my PC.

Mozilla Firefox:

   Click the Menu button (three bars) on the right upper corner of the screen
   Select "Options" and click on "Privacy & Security" in the toolbar on the left hand side of the screen
   Scroll down to the "Permissions" section and click the "Settings" button next to "Notifications"
   In the opened window, locate all suspicious URLs, click the drop-down menu and select "Block"

I see no """Options""" when I click the Menu button so I can't remove FreeTestNow from my PC (Catch - 22?)

So how do I get to """Options""", then scroll down to the "Permissions" section?

Thank you for your help.

I saw some warning regarding a certain cert of auth, and in checking that feature out, saw a bunch of sites that I never visit, and thought I'd "clean up." Now NOTHING works. I tried to undelete them, but that didn't work.

I know I could uninstall and reinstall, but I'm afraid that Firefox will recognize my account and reinstate all my settings including the unwanted changes of certificates of authority. I just want to reset Firefox to whatever default status it comes with without losing all my bookmarks and passwords - is that even possible?
