If I sign in to my Firefox account, (like I am signed in now) on a family member's device, how secure is that? Would any of my personal information show or save on that second device? I do not sync, my info is only on my device.

Hi, I recently setup a new computer and had to reset my firefox account password to login for sync.

everything worked fine, that was last week.

I just setup another computer and had to repeat the password reset process. I am now logged into my firefox account however it's not syncing? will there be some kind of security delay because I reset my password multiple times recently? I really need my saved logins.

any help would be appreciated, thanks

Since it seems I can't change hotkeys in Firefox, I thought I'd turn off the developer tools. But now when I press F12 it opens up a tab asking if I want to enable developer tools.

How do I stop that from happening? I have other uses for F12 than the developer tools I don't use.

Hello,

I have been a firefox user for maybe 15 years, but today is my last day if you do not tell me how I permanently disable automatic updates. I went through all settings, tinkered with console, etc, and you still crash all my tabs on a regular basis.

Regards.

Streaming Sites Saying Unsupported Browser After Firefox Update

Hi, Firefox just automatically updated on both of my laptops, one running Windows 10 and one running Windows 7, and now sites like Crave TV and ctv.ca are telling me Firefox is an unsupported browser and I can't even access those sites troubleshooting through Firefox. The sites work with other browses i have on my computer but Firefox has long been my browser of choice. I have contacted Crave and they had me change Firefox settings and nothing worked. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox as well. I have also completely disabled my antivirus software and that didn't work. Yes, i have restarted my computers several times.

To note, i was in the hospital for 3 months so my computers weren't running and probably missed several interim updates although the complete reinstall would've negated any problems that may have caused.

Anyone know what's going on here?

Only in my firefox browser, youtube is frozen on the first frame of any video I play. It advances frame by frame with spacebar but won't play normally. It's almost as if a pause has been turned on but I can't figure out how. I've restarted the browser and restarted my mac but it still is happening. It does not happen on my iphone. Oly on my laptop.

On startup master password rejects until all 10 tabs are done loading

I have 10 tabs that open on startup. The master password prompts comes up before all ten tabs are loaded. When I enter master password while tabs are loading I get a reject that password is wrong. I watch and each keystroke does display the astrick as I type in the password field. If I just wait until all tabs are loaded and enter password all is well, no rejected password. Computer is a Dell with Intel Core I5 3.20 GHz 8GB memory 4 processors. Now in Firefox 93, but at has done this for many past releases and WIndows 10 Pro. It don't really bother me since I put up with it for a long time, but have wondered if anyone else has seen this and if there is a setting I have wrong. Maybe on a rare occasion I won't get a reject while tabs are loading.
