I have been using Firefox as my default browser in Windows for a number of years without problems until recently. However I now find that, when I log on to sites where I have accounts, I am not automatically signed in. When I select sign in I am taken to a sign-in page where, on some accounts, , my usernames and passwords are already filled in. I have tried following Firefox guidelines with regard to settings and options, all to no avail. Can you assist me please.

Hi everyone,

I have permitted a website to access my location, but Firefox is not retaining the settings. While I am on the web site I keep getting the "Allow www to access your location" popup several times in a row and the website still reports that I need to enable the option. This is happening to all websites, not only this specific one.

What I have done thus far:

Restarted Firefox Refreshed Firefox Rebooted my computer Cleared Firefox cache and cookies Confirmed under Settings/Privacy & Security/Location that the site www status is "Allow" Removed my ad block settings from my router as I don't use a local add on

I am using Firefox 116.0.2 (64bit)

Thank you!

Enhanced Tracking Protection NOT Detecting Trackers on All Sites I Visit

Hi,

I have come across an issue where the Enhanced Tracking Protection (ETP) feature has stopped working on every single website I visit.

Every website I visit, the ETP icon is greyed out and not detecting any trackers.

For instance, when visiting the independent website, the ETP icon usually glows blue to indicate there are trackers. However, now, it is just greyed out, which is incorrect.

So far, I have done the following troubleshooting steps to fix the issue, but I have had no success:

  • Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox
  • Signed out and signed back in
  • Disabled and removed all extensions
  • Cleared cookies, cache, history, site settings, etc.
  • Opened Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode (with extensions disabled)
  • Deleted my profile/files and created a new one

I have also checked this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1327504

Can someone please help me with this, as I have no idea what else to do to fix this issue?

I started Firefox from scratch with a new profile, and the ETP worked for a short period, but when I closed and restarted Firefox, it just stopped working on every single site - this keeps persisting.

Any help would be appreciated!

[SOLVED] Firefox account not syncing Gravatar photo

Hi,

On September 15, 2022 I created this thread here on Firefox Support Forum and now I finally have an answer to the question, but as we can see my thread was archived and I can't update anything, so I decided to create a new thread just to mark my previous question as solved and bring it an answer.

I contacted Mozilla Firefox developers and got a response: Firefox is no longer integrated with Gravatar. Considering this, I can tranquilly say there is no bug or problem with my account as I thought. It's a pity that Firefox no longer support Gravatar integration, and even if I use an old version I will face the same "issue" because the Gravatar integration was a online feature linked to the Firefox account*, not to the browser itself.

Info source: https://github.com/mozilla/fxa/issues/15665

Admins can now archive and close this thread, I only ask to keep it online to help who may need this information in the future. Thanks.

  • Actually I made a mistake when I wrote this, the Gravatar integration was an online feature linked to the Mozilla account, not Firefox. James explained the distinction on #4 post of the current thread.

Last edit: On January 31, 2023 I created this thread on r/firefox but no one answered precisely. This current thread here on Firefox Support Forum also solves what was asked on reddit. The thread created on January 31, 2023 and posted on r/firefox was archived as well, like what happened to my thread with the same theme here on Firefox Support Forum, then I also created a new thread on r/firefox to mark my question as solved.

A folder in profile/default/storage with the name 'moz-extension+++d215ed11-a9b2-4927-bd1f-9755184bbe53' is using up 800MB of data on my install and is continuously adding more data.

The above string (ending 'bbe53') does not match with any extension on the about:support troubleshooting info page.

How do I find out which extension is storage data in this folder?

Hi, I'm a big fan of dark mode and avoiding bright screens. When Chrome begins to load an image slowly, generally it has a transparent background. Is there a way to remove this white loading screen in Firefox and make it transparent, or at least make it black or something? Having a big white block show up on screen is bad for your eyes. Thanks.

With no webpage up, all extensions off/uninstalled, and updates turned off(I have a policy turning it off) I randomly get a message from my firewall that Firefox is trying to access windows explorer. Given I'm not doing anything there should be no reason for it to do so, which means it is do something I don't want it to. If I block its access nothing happens other than it incessantly tries again about 20 seconds later. It can get rather demanding and request access a few times then stop again. I don't think it is trying to do anything malicious, but outside the Firefox genie trying to contact me about 3 wishes I would like it to stop. Any ideas what it might be trying to do/access?

It basically comes down too I've really hit my filled up point on too many developers deciding what is best for me and what I want done on my PC. My google fu didn't seem to be up to finding any information on what it might be doing and I found no help topics on it here. Ff doubly made me hit it with overly complicating simply turning off automatic updates and having to dig for how to do it.

Hey, since 2 months firefox started crashing when a video comes to the end. I tried it in troubleshoot mode skipped to min 10:45/10:50 and played. after this 5 sec it just crashed. I noticed it on youtube but tried it on other players and it also happened. Today I also started a video on a other website and it crashed but not when starting youtube videos.

Here my last 5 crash reports: bp-8fdedc8b-c8bc-404f-9e3e-8f2fd0230813 bp-b15becdb-456b-4a22-971c-2c0c20230813 bp-9754361a-f67b-445a-9163-c88a20230813 bp-cffc46ae-9ae5-4678-a323-7b60b0230813 bp-a863679a-577e-45f4-9f4e-002bc0230810

Hello. We use Firefox at our work and are having issues with Heartland Payroll. It seems to use Microsoft's cloud and the issue we're having is that it won't send the text message in order for us to verify the browser. It seems to happen on occasion and they try to blame Firefox and tell us to use Chrome. I tried turning off all addons and site tracking protections. That seemed to work on some machines and not on others so I'm not sure if that's doing anything at all. Once the text message is received we can access and use the site like normal but getting the page to send the text verification is where we can get stuck. Thank you for any help you can give.

On some webpage, I experience delay response when I trying to search sometime. For example, in Google homepage after typing something or even gibberish the page froze and not responding for about 10 second but the browser is still functioning (meaning I can still move other tabs or open option). Once that 10s delay is over, it responded with my result. And something when I when to search back something again(not in the homepage), more of the time is response back fast like 0.2s but other time the same 10s delay. This problem also happens in some other website but not all in their search bar. I have try in safe mode. disable all my extension, reinstall Mozilla Firefox, check any windows update and such. Also other browser does not have this problem such as chrome and brave. If this problem still persisting then I would such to other browser but prefer not to as I quite fond of Firefox. Thanks for your help in advance.
