I noticed there is something in the Firefox browser now named Lockwise which allows anyone using my computer to see all my passwords. This seems to be a major problem when it is supposed to be concerned with security. If my laptop is stolen they will have access to all my passwords now???? This does not look like a security feature to me. How do I get rid of or disable this function?

Thx

Everytime I open a new window in Firefox, my cursor will jump from the top bar search field to the 'synced tabs' sidebar after a couple of seconds, usually in the middle of me typing out the url of a web address or entering keywords for searching.

It is completely maddening to have to, every time, delete the rest of the letters from the sidebar, and reclick (it takes about 3x) in the main field at the top before it will deselect the letters already typed and allow me to keep typing.

How to I disable this 'feature'?

Thanks! Segue

After updating FF to v71 (Mac) my tabs are once again at the top of the window, instead of under the urlbar and bookmarks toolbar. Anyone have a new fix for this?

I don't see why Mozilla just can't let people put the tabs where they want and be done with it. Stuff like this used to be one of the great appeals and strengths of FF. It just feels like, which each new update, FF loses more and more of its soul.

any ideas? page titles are one of the reasons I switched full time to Firefox and I'm frustrated! TIA

Yesterday after I upgraded Firefox, I got a survey from Firefox with an offer to enter my name for a $1k raffle. When I clicked yes, it took me to a site National Consumer Center(promotionsonlineusa.com and amarktflow.com) and RewardZone(contact.rewardzoneusa.com) where I was asked many survey questions to enter my name in the raffle. Today my email box is filled with health product spam that is clearly related to that survey. Does Mozilla know what it got itself and its users into with that raffle and survey?

If Device A has one set of bookmarks and Device B has the other one or none, will FF delete bookmarks on Device A, merge or add them to it?

It seems like the feature is super bugged and fundamentally flawed. Not only is it halfbaked, but I have very little to no control over how it works. I end up with 40 hidden pages because of my style of browsing. Even using the Simple tab groups gets unnecessarily convoluted. Ive got like 60 hidden tabs in this browser window alone, but they arent displayed logically and you cant tell if they are assigned to another window in STG or what. So, whats the point of it? Why must I, as someone with amply memory and storage, must deal with its illogical behavior?

A few months ago I started Firefox in safe mode ( I don't remember why because it was so long ago). After quitting Firefox and starting it up again I lost ALL my bookmarks and other settings (my profile). I researched how to find them again but it would not let me install the old profile. It simply refused to return to the older profile for some kind of security issue. Can anyone explain why this happened and how I can at least get my old bookmarks back?

P.S. The reason I didn't report this earlier is that there was NO WAY I could access this support area even through my account. I now seem to be able to do this so perhaps it was a technical issue with Mozilla that has now been resolved.
