I am unable to de-select the "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" setting. The option is checked and I cannot "uncheck" the box. The texted is grey and the check box is a light color denoting it's not able to be toggled.

I searched for a solution and it's not the same problem as others are having where they have the the "never remember history" option enabled. My setting is "remember history."

I am a personal user, and this is my personal computer. I have admin rights on my computer. Running Windows 10 Pro.

Screenshot attached.

Thank you for any help with this.

On a number of occasions over the years, I have been unable to log in to Thingspeak from my lap-top. Usually the problem goes away. This is stated as a problem with their security certificate. However, my tablet, also running Firefox (119.0.1) has no problem accessing my account. What is really the problem? I am running Windows 7 on my ancient lap-top (yes, I know it is way outdated, but I'm attached to it and rely on the security software I'm paying for) The tablet is running Android 8.1.0 and is my last resort for internet. Would really like to fix this.

I am getting notifications with the Mozilla logo or sometimes with McAfee logo saying "5 Viruses found, your computer is unstable" and various other warnings. They all also say "via qltuh.titanicooler.top" I have attached a picture.

I have closed the browser, I tried clearing my cache, I have scanned using both AVG, AVAST, F-Secure Online Scanner, and Microsoft Safet Scanner. I am not quite sure what else I should do.

Thank You

I hate 2 factor authentication. I don't want to use it.

But I was sent to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/secure-firefox-account-two-step-authentication because I dared try to make (ok alter) a theme.

Authy sent me a unusable non-windows file, so I tried KeePassXC. It has no place to put a secret key...nor does it even mention one in its guide.

I downloaded KeePassXC just for this, not that I wanted to, so how do I fix this draconian policy need? This program gave me a 16 digit code, but nowhere to enter or use it.

Since the last couple updates Firefox is NOT allowing my Password Manager to fill in logins, usually after clearing the cache which I do once a week, at least. Why is that?

Second: Your browser is being managed by your organization. That is not true. There is no organization, there never has been, I'm retired and this is home use desktop running Windows 10 and no one but me has EVER managed Firefox and I've used this browser, though no longer as my default, since it first became available. So why does it think anyone but me controls anything about it?

I told Firefox to never remember a website login user/pass but now want to revert this. I have looked for this option but can only find the remembered user/pass. There is an option at the bottom of the chrome password list, but not in firefox.

Can someone please point me to the area that i can remove this "never remember logins for this site"

Thanks in advance

Obviously Firefox/Mozilla makes ~80% of their incomse $ by shipping the browser with google as default search engine, which is a privacy nightmare but who cares, it's for the money... So my best bet would be that's also the reason the default mailto suggested by firefox is google, is that correct? Does that mean something of google ins injected into Firefox? Look i have no idea to be honest, i do hate google and now im woondering where is the gmail logo comming from, is it stored somewhere inside of firefox? Is it just the logo or might there be more google crap injected to firefox behind the scenes?

Hi,

Since recent updates to Firefox I get a purple pop-up listing Trackers at the bottom right of my screen every time I open a new webpage. I'm happy with my PC security settings and have good protection software running - but this pop-up listing Trackers is becoming a nuisance.

Is there a way to stop Firefox displaying the Tracker notification pop-ups whilst still intercepting and blocking them in accordance with my security settings?

I see that other users have asked the same question, but it does not seem to have been answered yet.

Thanks,

Peter

I've saved and can use the log-in details for a particular site, but they doesn't show up in the password list, so I cannot edit/delete them. Whilst it may not be relevant and may confuse the issue more, the reason I want to delete log-in + password is because I have to create a new account every 2-3 months, which I then save. So when loading the home page, the current and all previously saved log-ins get listed. I've tried to manually delete one when on the home page, but unlike keystroke searches which do get deleted, this one remains in the list. I suppose I could clear everything and save all the log-in details for each site again, but why are the log-ins for one particular site not showing up ?

Thanks

I was surprised today to visit a site and notice the "permissions" icon appear at the left of the address bar, showing me that cross-site cookies were allowed for this site. I have Enhanced Tracking Protection set to "Strict", so obviously this was a worrying thing to happen.

Looking into it a bit further, it seems Firefox provides a backdoor for cross-site cookies: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/third-party-trackers?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#w_managing-cross-site-cookies

  • "While cross-site cookies from trackers are blocked in Firefox by default, a site may signal to the browser that it needs to use them for important functionality. In this case, Firefox will allow a third-party website to use cross-site cookies the first five times (or up to 1% of the number of unique sites you visit in a session, whichever is larger) without prompting you. After that, Firefox will prompt you to block these cookies. Without your consent, Firefox blocks these cookies from that point because a site requesting access that many times may be a tracker."

This is most definitely not what I want!

I want every cross-site cookie to be blocked by default, unless and until I explicitly approve it. Is there an about:config preference I can set to achieve this?

Hi I use my Firefox account on my personal computer and on my own computer on a server at work. Since my Firefox was updated to most recent version, I have not been able to save any passwords on Firefox on my server site. I tried adding a primary password using Firefox while on the local station, but it is not functional. Every time I open any new page to where I have an account, I have to reenter my Primary password before signing in to the site. I have since disabled this feature as it is not working for me. Firefox seems to be working fine on the local station at work and on my personal computer at home.

My Computer service tech for the server is unable to resolve this. I have also consulted a computer tech in the community who has not been able to solve it. We have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox twice. We have gone through a multitude of settings on the Firefox site. I am able to save the passwords without issue if I use Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome.

I am looking for someone who can give me guidance on what settings I many need to change. I simply want to be able to enter my user name and password for the common sites that I use, ask Firefox to store them so I do not have to retype them every time.

Thank you, Shelley B

Enhanced Site Tracking is off but Firefox is deleting sessions between screens

I developed a web app that checks the existing session login for each new page. So, after logging in the first time, the user is shown a dashboard with a list of functions they can access (My Account, etc). When an item is clicked and the application calls the function, it first checks for the existence of login session. If it's not there, then the user is forced back to login screen. However Firefox is deleting the session at some point so when the session is checked for the new function, the user is forced to login again. Chrome, Safari, Edge do not and are fine.

Enhanced tracking is turned off for the site and is shown as an exception. What is happening and how can prevent it?

""It says something like firefox.exe has tried to make a connection based on a not approved certificate with browser.pipe.aria.microsoft.com. We have blocked the connection to keep your data safe. I can add this to exclusions"" or something like that.

I have never seen something like this before and I would like to know what it means and if I should exclude this, etc. So that's why I send you a mail to check it. Like to hear from you and many thanks in advance. Greetz Karin

I tried everything in the message I received but there was no (obvious) way to reply. I will attach a screenshot of what is occurring. Search Baron is hijacking my web searches. If I specifically click on use google in the search bar then it works. If I just type a search phrase, search baron takes over (see the URL in the attached screenshot, that is what appears no matter what I search). I can open a web page fine.
