Why does Sync prompt me to install "on another device" when this is the fourth or fifth active device I've logged into the account with?

Over the past few days, I've logged into Firefox on a few new devices - mainly, a Windows partition on my computer, and on a school computer. In both instances, after log… (читать ещё)

Over the past few days, I've logged into Firefox on a few new devices - mainly, a Windows partition on my computer, and on a school computer.

In both instances, after logging in, it doesn't give me any indication of being finished - instead it prompts me to "install on another device". Most recently, on this computer, it asked me to send an SMS to my phone to login to Firefox Sync on my phone.

This would be reasonable, except for the fact that I'm already using Firefox on my phone, and have it actively logged in with the account I'm logging in to. When I go to look at my devices on accounts.firefox.com, I have 6 devices listed, including my phone "last seen 7 hours ago" and my main computer "last seen 3 hours ago". It's clear to me that these are active devices, and that I don't need to install on any other devices to get sync working.

The main reason this is annoying is that I don't get any confirmation that I've completed logging in - only a prompt to do something unnecessary. I can work around this by simply ignoring the prompt, but I'm concerned for other less tech-savvy consumers who might be confused, thinking they're still not done when they login to Sync on their second device! Imagine someone logs into their phone first, and then the computer - it'd be pretty confusing to then have the computer ask them to sign in on the phone.

I personally was slightly confused, and had to double check that bookmarks were actually syncing and that I hadn't accidentally made a new account or done something to erase my previously logged-in devices...

Just read strange news about data leak(s) in Firefox and Chrome via extensions - https://www.forbes.com/sites/kateoflahertyuk/2019/07/19/data-leak-warning-issued-to-millions-of-google-chrome-and-firefox-users/#15ec03fd3ded

i normally do not use extensions but from few days or week i use Adblock Plus, so i instantly start wondering if i am one of this victims...

after this i read that Firefox is doing review of extensions but not in details, for extensions where it check in details it put or may put Recommended badge next to extension...

so i noticed such "recommended" ads blocker - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/?src=search and immediately pressed "Add to Firefox" and... surprise... Firefox recommended blocker extension requires 5 permissions and 4-th is "Store unlimited amount of client-side data"

is this any Firefox very very bad joke or i get/read something very wrong? How is that blocking extension is collecting unlimited users data and its Firefox Recommended...?

how is that possible Mozilla to allow something like this to happen, company which fight for privacy and freedom to allow such suspicious things and even recommend them...? do this means fight = "fight" and privacy = "privacy" (so both are not really what they supposed to be...?)

Hello,

I was recently trying to create a new profile when I saw that there was an extra one there besides the default one. This was the name:

Profile: default-1559102909176

I didn't make this. I was wondering if anyone has came across this, or if I was potentially hacked and someone was spying on me. Thanks for the help.

TLS handshake for minutes, then fail. Computer restart always fixes

This started when I installed V68 on my Mac (I'm on 68.0.2 now, Mac is 10.12.6). About half the time when I start my computer in the morning, when I try to browse *any* site (http or https), I get the TLS handshake attempt that lasts for several minutes, then connection fails.

BUT, *unlike other posts with this problem*, if I restart my computer (restarting FF does not fix it), all is well. A detail (not sure if relevant): the pages my (Comcast) server has local copies of, that is, my home page and a couple of very frequently accessed pages, I can access, but any other site, regardless of http or https, results in the TLS handshake "freeze 'n fail."

  • Edit: I just lost then, 10 mins later, regained my Comcast (internet, mail, cable). I did not re-start computer or FF, but when signal returned, I got the dreaded TLS Handshake Freeze 'N Fail. Again, computer restart let me come here to report.

In the last couple of weeks (roughly since the last Firefox update), all of the images on my website have changed to square aspect ration (1:1). They used to display fine but not any more, and this only happens on Firefox - other browsers display the site correctly. See attached screenshot.

It is a Joomla website with YooTheme template. You can see it here: https://eternallovestory.com

I've tried everything on the website end to fix the issue but nothing I do has any effect. Does anyone have any ideas what's gone wrong? Thanks in advance!

Suddenly all Google services are not working in Firefox on my pc. When I try to login to Gmail it just becomes greyed out after I click 'next' to add the password etc...then I can't go any further.

Google Translate is just a blank white page with that annoying 'View any page in Chrome' popup thing...the only thing that I can do then is click 'Yes' in that popup...clicking 'No thanks' does nothing. [see pic]

All these things are working perfectly normally in Internet Explorer.

Problem with well-intended aspect of Monitor. I had a data breach despite excellent habits. I can't change every password!

I am so sick of Google, I decided to give Firefox a try again. For the first time, it offered me Monitor, which demonstrated I have suffered a data breach, apparently at multiple sites, and they have all gotten hold of the same one of my passwords. Even though I suspect Y'all are aware that the breach was not my doing, Firefox is set up to treat me like an idiot after the fact, going into detail about safe passwords and using password manager apps--the whole thing about not using one password for multiple sites and all that, which I've been aware of and responded to cautiously and reliably for about the last fifteen years, of about twenty that I've been online.

The problem is that I am very internet savvy, so that info, as helpful as it is meant to be, is useless to me and a bit offensive. I have been using LastPass for about the last five years. I have nearly 300 unique passwords. It is useless to me to be told that some strangers have access to one of my nearly 300 passwords. What am I supposed to do with that information, change all my passwords? Why did they not provide me the password that was part of the breach, so I can hunt it down and change it? Right now, all it's done is set me up to worry, when in fact, the forces that absconded with my data, presumably as part of huge data breaches involving major companies, probably have no interest in me whatsoever! I think presenting things in this manner, as well meant as it may have been, is a bit irresponsible and condescending. Not everyone out here is an idiot, even if we may not be computer techs. Is there any way I can learn which of my many passwords was part of this breach? What else am I supposed to do with this info, when I already have unique passwords for all of my many accounts and I use a password manager?

I mean no offense in presenting my frustration and understand you all are volunteers and not responsible for the problems as I have outlined them. I hope someone can help me sort this out.

I have been trying to access www.cross-x.com/ for the past few days. Unfortunately, the certificate has expired and the site is using HSTS. If I want to access the site, I am forced to either change my computer time (and undergo all the nastiness associated with that), or use chrome with the --ignore-certificate-errors flag, which compromises my general security. Neither of these options are preferable. Is it possible to bypass HSTS for this site or will firefox force me to wait for the site admins to fix it (doubtful because the certificate expired in early October)? Is there a command line flag, or a patch to the source code that will permit this?

A "bookmark's location" ought to show its location on my browser, rather than the PAGE'S ONLINE ADDRESS. If someone has a webpage bookmarked, then why would he/she need its URL? But that person might be going howdy-rowdy trying to find a bookmark in his/her own browser's folders (don't ask me how I know).

Gents: I do not want to give my correct phone number for anyone to enter in their database. How can I use Sync w/o giving my true number? 2. I thought I had Sync set up previously but now it always hits me with the 'enter your phone number' which is a dead end for me.

3. I believe when the Support page is asking for my Yahoo email logon (for some reason) that it is linking my Yahoo with this support site instead of allowing me to use my normal logon. Is there a way I can check and be sure that these are not linked, and that I didn't miss some asterisk B.S. somewhere about "you are now giving support.mozilla or whatever was using this, to link my yahoo account?

Thank you!

I've checked my extensions, seems to be nothing unfamiliar there... I have looked through everything and haven't found an answer for Macs specifically. I just want to choose google as my search and have it stay, and it constantly goes back. I'd rather not be forced to switch to google chrome. In the screenshot it shows what it looks like after it automatically switches back...
