Would be nice if someone from Mozilla could build this into the browser, so users can easily change their Time Zone.

( Timezone Difference: The time zone of your browser is UTC while your request IP location timezone is different. )

Currently have privacy.resistFingerprinting on which is giving website the UTC time zone. How do I change this without disabling the setting.

Can I go into About:Config and add a new timezone?? that the Javascript request will find.

There should be a guide by now or easy settings built into the browser to change these settings.

I'm having trouble with websites that think I'm a Bot, because they are detecting multiple operating systems/ OS, due to my settings and privacy extensions.

Is there anything in About:Config that I can change to set my OS to Windows??

Common methods for websites detecting someone's OS is by using Javascript, User Agent, and TCP/IP fingerprinting.

How do I fake the Javascript test? There's extensions that block Scripts but that leaves people unable to use websites, is there any command I can put in and set as default?

User Agent test - There's a few extensions that will work to change this, though if I can change this through About:config or other settings I would like to know.

The TCP/IP protocol controls how data is sent between computers and how the sender and receiving computers are identified. Mostly this is done identically by every computer, but some small parameters are implemented differently by different operating systems, creating a ‘fingerprint’.

I'm told this is very difficult to fake, but has a larger error rate anyway.

Hi

I have a sandbox iframe which is hosted by various websites. Lets assume that this iframe is loaded like this: <script src="https://example.com/wie.js"></script> I have already added 'allow-scripts allow-forms allow-modals allow-same-origin allow-popups allow-popups-to-escape-sandbox allow-storage-access-by-user-activation' at sandbox. I also use document.requestStorageAccess() from inside the iframe and I set event listeners for the storage like this: window.addEventListener('storage', onStorageFunc, false);. From the iframe a popup window is presented when user clicks a specific button and the popup opens at lets say at this url "https://paypal.com". After user navigation on popup, paypal at the end of the flow redirects user to this url "https://example.com/success". At this point when user is navigated to /success I add some data to local storage which I expect to trigger the storage event listener and the onStorageFunc to run. This doesn't happen, while in other browsers it works as expected. Since both popup and iframe are under the same url (https://example.com) and I have used requestStorageAccess, I would expect this to work normally. Can you please help me to find out what is going wrong here? In the past I had the same problem but it was fixed when I added 'requestStorageAccess' and 'allow-storage-access-by-user-activation'. Now I can see it happening again.

Am using FF 109.01 (64) and the latest Windows 10 (64) ver. I uses their Virus program.

With my bank security settings I have check marked to not use 2FA Bank home page asks for a security code anyway.

This has happened to me months ago and all of a sudden everything was OK. ... and now it has happened again. When I use Edge, Bank home page does not ask for a security code. This is the way I would like FF to perform.

I have phoned the Bank IT Help desk and they are bafflled. They had me try a bunch of acrobats but nothing works.

Obviously there is something in FF to tweak. I am using

I have searched and searched on internet, but no solution. I have used FF since it was a baby, and I want to stick with it. Thanks

I was looking at my event log tracking down one issue when I noticed hundreds of audit failures (outbound connection blocked) in my event log.

Firefox is not even running. I've just started my computer. It's trying to make a connection to google @ 34.107.221.82.

Fortunately something is blocking the connection attempt, but why is Firefox making hundreds of connection attempts when I haven't even opened firefox? How do I stop it?

I looked in task scheduler and couldn't see anything there. Looked at group policy, couldn't see anything there.

It wants edge I guess but I deleted the entire edge app and all its dlls. So how do I make the choice through the "set defaults" settings permanent?

I enjoy Firefox, however I've recently realized that hackers are using the Firefox browser to attack and enter my system, despite a firewall and VPN and even in private browser. I've been forced to cease use of the Firefox browser and decided to bring this to your attention after realizing that this surely will become widespread if not already. Is Firefox aware of such attacks and if so what are you doing about it and when do you think I will be able to safely use your browser again? Also I'm open to explore any suggested setting that may help with the security of your browser. Thanks.

What is the pink bar next to your logo for? It looks like my most recent queries are listed. Does it mean those sites are still open, even though I closed them when I was finished?

These sites left open on my browser? I had a notice this morning from Microsoft security that I had 542 attacks on my computer.

Whenever any website asks to access my location, and I allow it, Firefox tells that website that I am in a faraway place that I last visited over a year ago. What's worse, this place happens to be a very niche medical facility, which is upsetting as I don't expect to be revealing my medical history just by allowing access to my location.

I am not using a VPN or proxy or anything of that sort. If I look up my IP address in GeoIP2 or iplocation.net, it shows the correct city that I am actually in. How can I force Firefox to update my location (or at least, get it to uncache this old location)?

I'm using Firefox 109.0.1 on Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS.

Youtube autoplay stopped to work properly.

After previous video next video really starts automatically then, may be after half a second or second, the video stops and returns to intro splash screen of the video. One must press Play to start this next video again. I tried next steps: 1. In Firefox Privacy and security settings / Autoplay: I allowed audio and video autoplay for all sites 2. On the left side of URL string for Youtube site I pressed the button and also allowed audio and video autoplay for the site. The image on this button changed. I reloaded Youtube - no effect, reloaded Firefox and Youtube - all the same.

3. I checked Youtube autoplay in Microsoft Edge browser - it works correctly.

What should be done in Firefox to restore autoplay? I don't remember when this problem appeared.
