I've checked a couple of the "similar topics" before posting here. I'm not sure if I am having the same problem or something else.

Back Story: I have a "few" windows and tabs open in FireFox. I would finish what I was doing, shut down and then the next time I booted up and loaded FireFox, all sessions would be restored and all log ins honoured (kept). That is: I was still logged in.

(Moving to now) Yesterday I powered up and ALL sites were logged out. About 20 log ins were needed. Hmmmmm... gmail, and the rest.

"Ok... something happened. No problems, things should be ok from now. I've logged in, so all is sweet."

Today I power up: All logs ins lost. Had to go through it all again.

Gmail is throwing security alerts at me hand over fist. Yeah, that is good in some ways. I get that part. But I've logged in.

Seems - my thoughts - that the cookies aren't being saved. But why? I haven't touched them or their settings.

Yes, I did do a clean out of older cookies. But left the gmail ones, and other sites I know I use. I have `adblocker ultimate` installed.

Now I am logged in, if I open the `cookies` and look I should see them there for the sites to which I am logged in - yes?


To be clear: When I am done, I do NOT `exit` FireFox. All windows, tabs, sessions are left. I just shut down the machine. Then next time I load FireFox and they are re-loaded and log ins are maintained.

Firefox opens previous windows and tabs, option disabled

Despite the fact that I unchecked "Open previous windows and tabs", Firefox always opens them.

You will tell me why Mozilla Firefox, a browser that claim to protect our privacy, is PERMANENTLY connected to Amazon servers.

Even If I try to block the connections with a Firewall, it's useless, because the next time I start it, it still connects to Amazon using diffferent IP address, even if the starting page is totally blank.

It is not about keeping firefox up-to-date, because when I manually start the search for an update, Firefox establish a new connection: Mozilla REALLY want my browser to SEND datas to Amazon, which is one of the worst company when we talk about collecting personnal informations, just like Google, which Firefox also use, but it's less dramatic since I can decide to not use that feature.

So, like I wrote, I try to block Amazon IP addresses: The result is that I can't access extensions store, but that's still not the use of these servers, since even If It's blocked, Amazon still appears in Established connections, and it's not about Search: Indeed, Amazon appears in a list of engines we can use ( if we want it ), but it's un-checked, and I use a different search engine, so what's left now, since there's apparently no reason at all for these connections to happen.

Here's my theory: Mozilla need money to survive, so it sell informations about its users to Amazon, and that's why it's so important to keep these connections alive.

The fact that we're forced to connect to Amazon servers shows that it's not necessary and that whatever the reason you ive me (update, protection...), it's probably (obviously) not the truth.

Waiting for a real answer !

A website MultiSafepay.com has saved my CVV number in Firefox.

How do I edit the autofill data?

I can't get to the same payment page, to be in a position to delete it.

Most links on this matter refer to:

 Options => Privacy & Security => Forms and Autofill

However in my Version: Firefox 98.0.1 (64 bit) running on an up to date Windows 10 this feature is missing or deprecated.

Can anyone say how I could edit/delete this specific entry, or point me in the direction of where this data is stored?

In the mean time I can't recommend using Firefox for entering critical security data, where websites can allow the storage of CVV numbers.

Is there a preference in about:config to fake or simply block websites from reading the font-list of my operatingsystem? I think it is pretty ridiculous anyways that websites can access this information since it has nothing todo with the webbrowser visiting the site but going beyond to spy on information that i consider private.

Same question goes for audio-readout, is there a pref to fake or block?

Hello,

I'm trying to access the following URL: https://archive.vn/QzWMe

When I do that, I get a page entitled: Secure Connection Failed. The page looks like the image I uploaded.

I've been all over the internet looking for fixes, but none are working for me. Incidentally, when I try to connect to this website (it is an archive of a Wall Street Journal page) using Edge, there is no problem; the page displays right away.

Is there a way to use Firefox to read this page?

Thanks for any help.

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!

I added 2FA to my account on 10 October 2021, and recently bought a new phone with a fresh Authenticator app. I have all my backup codes saved already so I thought it wouldn't be any worries.

I was wrong, I've been facing this error for all the 10 different codes: Backup authentication code not found

I only have one Firefox account with 2FA, so I'm 100% confident this is the right account. I have access to my email associated with the locked out Firefox account and I can see the email mentioning that I activated 2FA on 10 October 2021, and there are no emails beyond that regarding my 2FA.

I am a developer who have published Firefox Addons - so I am not able to just create a new account, I need this account specifically.

I have the following info:

  • Email
  • Password
  • Backup codes (that don't work, I can provide screenshot of the codes upon request)
  • Gmail Access associated with the Firefox account

Help really appreciated, Tomas

Today Firefox stopped altogether and dimmed the entire window and popped up a "Try the Firefox VPN" message. I use Firefox specifically to get away from disruptive, intrusive violations like that. This needs to be removed immediately and never ever happen again. It's completely antithetical to the core values of Firefox.

Furthermore, several users have reported it breaking their browsing. See this Reddit thread:

https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/13rnt88/why_is_firefox_windows_11_version_showing_me/

This affected me on Windows 10 running Firefox 113.0.2 64 bit.

Hello,

I logged into my bank account yesterday and wasn't paying attention. After I entered my username and password, the next page had two options:

Yes - this is a trusted computer or device (like a home or personal work computer)

No - this is a shared/public computer or device (like a friend's or those in a library)

I accidentally clicked the first option and now it no longer sends me a PIN to enter to log in to my account. I've looked through all the settings to clear this setting, and even tried to clear ALL cache (every thing was checked in the section of the Settings page), but it still logs me in without prompting for a PIN.

How can I get this back to where it was so that it is always prompting for the PIN?

Thanks!

Trying to use ProctorU with Firefox 104.0.2 on Windows 11 Home, and I am getting the following message : "Monitor Count : You may only use 1 monitor during your exam. Your monitor count could not be found". I searched for possible fixes, and someone mentioned removing fingerprinters, and possibly also remove cookies and tracking content from Firefox enforcement. I removed all 3 and that did not help. I also tried clearing cookies and site data and also cached web content, this did not help. Is there some other setting in Firefox that might be preventing the detection of the monitor count? Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

If there isn't, could some kind developer please make an add-on?
