Hello,

we use firefox in our company and the requirement appeared to turn on the security setting "Delete cookies and sitedata when closing Firefox" due to our security guidelines.

I´ve already checked the "Enterprise Policy Generator" Plugin, but there is no such option. Is there a possibilty to check this option and block it for the user by the about:config page?

Thanks in advance, J.Stempel

How are my bookmarks stored when synced between devices? Are my bookmarks encrypted as well as my passwords/credit card info? This is from the Mozilla page regarding encryption:

"Your encryption key remains a secret, only known to you and your authorized devices." and "We store your encrypted data on our servers so we can’t read it."

I just wanted to make sure this also applies to bookmarks before I import all of mine.

Thanks for any help!

Windows FF 108.0.2 automatically downloads PDF files now, even though ASK WHERE is checked in Settings. I have, for YEARS, had FF set to ask me where to store any download, and it is still set that way. And whenever I opened a PDF link, FF would display the link in its PDF viewer, and if I wanted to download it, I would click the PDF viewer download button.

However, now FF automatically downloads it to disk FIRST, popping up the Downloads box showing progress, before ever displaying it on screen. What changed? This seems like a HUGE security risk.

I have shortcuts to launch Firefox in two ways, one with no commands and one with the following command: -P "Personal" --no-remote This used to show two separate Firefox icons on the taskbar. Firefox windows opened in each profile would be grouped with the same profile and kept separate from other profiles. With the latest update I still have two icons, the Default profile has a Firefox icon and the 'Personal' profile has a private browsing icon. Even though there are no private windows open. According to latest updates, if I open private windows then they should be grouped with their own icon. However, whether I have Default or Personal profile windows open, Private windows are grouped with their standard browsing windows.

This is on Win 10, Firefox 107.0.1

Any ideas how to fix this? Ideally I would have the standard Firefox icon on both profiles then, to conform with the private window separation update, my private windows would be separated from the standard windows but also from different profiles.

Greetings from North-East of France, since a few weeks ago I'm seeing a (sort of) pop-up window suggesting to login with a Google account (see the screenshot attached). I've done some internet search to find out how to get rid of it, but the only suggestion I get is to modify an option in a Google account. However, I do not have a Google account! How to get rid of this disturbing pop-up? I already use Adblock Plus and uBlock Origin, yet Google passes through them! Thank you in advance for any help you may provide.

Firefox is suggesting usernames on multiple websites that I access regularly. However, I have the saved logins feature turned off in Firefox.

When I access Settings > Privacy & Security > Logins and Passwords - it shows all of these options turned off.

When I access Settings > Privacy & Security > Logins and Passwords > Saved Logins... - it indicates No Logins Found / No Synced Logins found.

I do have Firefox Sync turned on to sync between devices, but since it indicates "No Synced Logins" it doesn't appear this is coming from another device. I have checked multiple devices and found they all show "No Synced Logins"

Only happening in Firefox. I am not getting these suggested logins in Edge or Chrome.

Happening across all my Windows 10 and 11 devices that have Firefox sync enabled. 2 x Windows 11 Pro 22H2 (build 22621.819) 1 x Windows 10 Pro 22H2 (build 19045.2364)

Firefox 108.0 on all Windows devices, but it started before updating to 108.

I have not yet tried resetting Firefox - hoping to use that as a last resort.

Any suggestions on where else to look or what I should try?

I do not have a G account. For work related purposes I have to utilize websites that bombard me with Sign in w Google. No settings within FF I found can stop this onslaught. Same goes for Ad Block Plus and a few others since disabled and deleted. No useful information on G's forum website. Firefox, I was under the impression your about user safety & security? Why O Why do I get this garbage from G daily in your browser 105.3 on Win 10 home without a way to disable it?

I was trying to sync my settings to my new laptop with my login and PW (which was correct) and it kept telling me it wasn't right. So, I decided to change it but my MFA on Google for Firefox got wiped once I switched phones. I had to use a backup code to get in and want to re-enable the MFA.

Unfortunately, and for no real reason, it won't work. I scan the QR code in Google Authenticator, it sets up and gives me a code, I enter the code, and then it tells me it's the wrong one. I even tried to do it by manually setting it up and it made no difference. Now I can't re-enable it because it won't work right.

What the actual hell is going on here, guys?

Hi,

No matter what I do, a google dialogue box encouraging me to use google for password management, pops up every time I go to a site, new or existant.

I've gone into my google account to disable such requests, and, indeed, otherwise use google for nothing....not even search............but they keep coming anyway.

am using ubuntu 20.04, and no other utility or code is giving me this trouble.

I want to stop this dialogue box and eliminate any code in firefox or ubuntu which supports it.....as I have no idea why this box showed up....one day it just started.

Many thanks!

Hello, Q1: Is there a way to prevent Google search engine from accessing and sharing the city I live in via my IP address?

Q2: Can I block my IP address from Amazon, Google and other shareware/spyware garbage AND still access and use the internet?

At the bottom of a Google search result page I can read the city I live in based on my IP address. I would rather not have this shared as I search for products in different stores. I am signed into Google.

When I ran the "Privacy tab" in Firefox the Google search results still showed the city I live in.

I use a VPN, three security extensions("No-Script, Privacy-Badger & FaceBook Container) and Mozilla Firefox set at the "Strict" Browser Privacy level.

Thank you for reviewing these questions, Oliver

Disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer

You can also set a different third-party PDF viewer to handle PDF files, instead of Firefox’s built-in PDF viewer. To switch from using the built-in PDF viewer to another viewer: 1. Click the menu button and select . 2. In the panel, go down to the Applications section. (SO WHERE IN THE HELL IS THIS SECTION???) YOU CAN'T DO I never selected Mozilla to open any pdf and there's no where to opt out or change based on what all the troubleshooting tips say... All these tips must be located on a much older version of Firefox cause they ain't in my version OR they are hid under some dubious section... Pretty frustrating....when you want to use Adobe and can't cause I'm locked in under Firefox....don't know how that has happened unless it was done automatically under one of the many current upgrades that have been coming down over the last month.
