If extension gather some private data about my activity, like for example https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clipboardhelper/ which gather my clipboard history.

"This add-on needs to:

   Get data from the clipboard
   Input data to the clipboard
   Store unlimited amount of client-side data
   Access your data for all websites"

How to assess the resulting privacy risks?

1. Isn't there insignificant chance these data leak out thru other extensions? For example on Andorid (i am on Windows) i think that i heard that the apps has some common storage and it was/is possible one app read data of other app. Maybe it is not true and likely does not apply on Firefox on Windows.

2. or this extension send my data out to author or such? Btw. is there(why not) setting which would by default disallow extension to send data it gathered away via internet? And user would have to allow it on prompt.

The subject line says it all. Firefox version 80.0.1 (64-bit) running on Ubuntu.

The Preferences / Startup / Restore previous session is ticked. Deleting sessionstore files (as per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1185765) doesn't fix this. There are no Restore Previous Session item available anywhere (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1261571)

This appears to have happened only since the latest update. I typically work with 20-30 opened tabs at a time, so this is very annoying, and it it wasn't for the Session History Scrounger for Firefox I'd be totally screwed. (The latest Firefox version also runs cripplingly slow at times, often consuming 100% of CPU according to 'top'.)

Over the last few weeks Firefox is not printing statements correctly from my online bank. Other browsers e.g. Safari, Microsoft Edge are working fine. I have Firefox on a MacBookPro (El Capitan) and a PC (Windows 10) and both have exactly the same problem. The image is far too large for the page and much text is lost. Switching to landscape doesn't help. It appears that something has changed in Firefox recently which is causing this. Thanks

Hi there,

I'm currently running macOS 10.15.6 and Firefox 80.0.1.

I've not been able to get the Home and End keys on my keyboard to jump to the beginning and end of the URL inside the address bar for a while now. I know on macOS I can hit command+left and command+right to achieve the same behaviour. But so many sites (not this one; but Google Docs, reddit, etc) support the Home and End key behaviours.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report bugs / feature requests, but maybe the community knows how I can even mimic this behaviour with extensions.

Thanks for reading!

Hi,

From two to three weeks ago, every time I open windows, my firefox browser reboots twice. It does not give any error message and when it reboots it goes back to home page. I removed all extensions, then I updated the browser and the Graphic Card, in vain!

Any help please
