I have Windows 7 64 bit and was using Internet Explorer 11 for years, but have now downloaded and installed Firefox version 66.0.3 (64bit). After searching the community I have set up my home pages etc. I also have Norton Security installed and when I did a search using google, Norton did not rate the search engine results. I have checked the extensions and Norton Safe Web is listed and enabled,(it says disable or delete by the side of it). I have searched help and the community but cannot find a answer to my problem. I would be extremely grateful for any help. Thanking you in advance.

Windows 7, FF 66.0.3. Long time FF user. Something happened yesterday and FF froze (do not remember what I was doing). Closed FF and reopened, tried to go to a familiar web page and FF did not log on as usual. None of the saved urls, user IDs, or passwords appear. Now, there is an exclamation point in a yellow triangle at the 3 horizontal 'menu' icon. Clicking on the icon calls up the "reconnect to Sync" message. I cannot sign in, seeming to be a password problem. Please note, I do not remember ever enrolling into a FF account. That could be a fault of memory, but I typically note when, where, user id, and password or other important data when registering. First question: does FF sometimes 'loses it' causing similar problems? If so, what is the solution to the problem?
Or, am I screwed? I looked around trying to find soluitons before coming here but only found disheartening info.
When ever I type an Captcha in official website I have renter it again and again and because of that I am unable to sign in. Kindly guide me to resolve this.

When I click either the site info button or go via "Options/Preferences" to select certain cookies for deletion and then click to delete, a confirmation dialogue box appears and I have to repeat the instruction. This extra stage is unwanted and the time it takes gives the website time to plant another cookie (which when I recheck after closing the site tab, it inevitably has done).
Whether using either the options route or the site info button, I have considered my actions and have selected some cookies and have given a specific 'delete' instruction and it is annoying to have to confirm this considered multi-step activity.
If you really believe the users are so stupid that they go through the whole procedure without really meaning it, perhaps you have a means whereby I can adjust the about:config options to stop the confirmation dialogue appearing? I have had a look but not found anything in the config.
Or even just put another button on the confirmation dialogue saying " don't show this box again" ?
(a side note: recently, this unwanted dialogue box displays almost full screen - this may be an os problem rather than Firefox, but it was not always so)

Firefox advised a refresh because it was running slowly. I clicked refresh and now on relaunch (have quit and restarted several times) I cannot access any websites at all because on EVERY site I try to access I receive a message:
'Warning: Potential Security Risk' in a yellow framed page. Underneath the heading it says (for each site):
'Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to support.mozilla.org. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.'
As you can see, this is even for Mozilla itself. I have no extensions.
In addition, the menu section on Firefox (the only thing I can actually open) is showing up with all images blocked. Im having trouble uploading a screenshot for some reason so can't send that. I am currently on Chrome while unable to access anything on Firefox.
Many thanks in advance. This has really put my whole day / work at a standstill!

Using Firefox 66.0.3 When I tried it I lose all settings: bookmarks, Menu bars, etc. Alternately, does Firefox have it's own sandbox? I thought I had read that it was coming three years ago.

Hello Mozilla -- I've been dealing with a problem over the past week and would like to ask for whatever assistance anyone could provide.
I've been entering online sweepstakes through the various websites of Publisher's Clearing House ("PCH") for a number of years, but have had trouble with a number of browsers I've used previously; for full disclosure, I have also informed their Customer Service of this issue and will be examining this issue with them simultaneously. I've used Internet Explorer and Google Chrome to participate in PCH activities over the years, but have experienced various problems; late last year, I transitioned over to Firefox, and despite having problems here as well, I had a breakthrough by using Firefox's Incognito mode, which minimized the frequency of performance problems, if not nearly eliminating them altogether. I soon learned that the reason why the site performance improved on these instances was because of the automatic settings of the Content Blocking in Incognito mode, which blocked a number of disruptive third-party cookies from interfering with a site's essential functions.
Unfortunately, about a week ago, I hit a snag; while on a PCH website (while Incognito), a pop-up from the page came up saying that ad-blocking software had been detected, and was trying to get permission to get through the firewall. I dismissed most of the initial wave of pop-up messages, but in a momentary lapse of attention, I accidentally clicked the "I Agree!" button to allow PCH's third-party content to get past Firefox's Content Blocker. At first, I didn't think there would be a problem, since all cookies and data get undone once Incognito mode is closed, but unfortunately, the third-party content from PCH websites continue to get past the Content Blocker, especially while in a private window. What's worse, all efforts to undo this mistake have failed, despite taking a number of troubleshooting measures to re-establish a firewall on third-party content from these sites.
In the last several days, I have refreshed Firefox several times, uninstalled (and reinstalled) the browser on several occasions, and have even used the Profile Manager to delete all files from the browser's profile. Despite all these actions taken, the browser continues to recognize third-party content from all PCH web pages while in Private Browsing. I've also used the site information to adjust the privacy settings to levels higher than "Standard" instead; I've set the Content Blocking level to "Custom" in order to block all third-party cookies, and failing that, went ahead and set it to "Strict" to try blocking everything. Nonetheless, the third-party content still manages to get through, and subsequently drags both website and browser performance down with it. I will include a couple of screengrabs taken in the last few days of recent attempts at private browsing, with the site information drop-down windows visible to display some of the third-party cookies that are detected while Incognito.
With all the aforementioned steps taken so far, I wanted to ask if there is anything else that can be done to undo the permission I accidentally gave to these websites and go back to the third-party contents thereof being prevented from displaying while in private windows. Even in the site information tab, it clearly states that "no special permissions are given to this website." I would like to repeat for all's benefit that I am also in the process of discussing this matter directly with PCH Customer Service to see if the problem can be corrected from their end, if not through Mozilla. Again, it took a brief lapse in focus to grant this site permission to breach the private-window firewall, but nothing has worked so far to undo this mistake.
I welcome all helpful advice to this end, and I thank everyone in advance.
P.S.--- My apologies; I've tried to add a pair of JPEG images to this message, but they did not seem to want to upload (I was able to type out the entirety of this question, and finished well before the uploading of the first image did), so I won't be able to include them here for the time being. I will try to do so again at a later time.

Since the latest update Cookies & site data no longer clear when I close FF. I have checked the settings which are correct but I have to go to options & clear manually all the time. This function used to work the problem is only since the last update. Can this be corrected please?
