I am using the currect version of FF, 71 or 70. something, not sure but I just updated. I use Whatsapp.web to chat when on my PC. I have no trouble connecting to Whatsapp.web using my Iphone and Firefox. However, EVERY time that FF closes, for a restart, or simply when I make a mistake and accidentally close the browser, the connection to Whatsapp.web is apparently broken. I say apparently because on the Iphone, it sontinues to list Windows 10 as an active device using the web app. When I used Microsoft Edge, once I scanned the QR code and connected, I would STAY connected, even overnight after I had shut down the PC. I am wondering if there are certain privacy or security settings which are preventing Whatsapp from staying connected when the FF browser closes. I also remember that a couple of years ago, when I was using FF in the 40s versions, maybe, Whatsapp also stayed connected. Just a note: the reason this is sort of a problem for me is that I am blind, and I use certain visual accessibility settings on Windows and FF that do not allow the Whatsapp QR to be scanned; so I have to change the entirevisual setting of my PC, scan the code, then restore the entire visual setting. Any ideas how to keep Whatsapp.web connected always, or at least as long as I don't end my Windows session?

Overnight it seems that Firefox is no longer reading my old saved logins and passwords. I have checked to see that the logins.json and key4.db files are present, but the new Lockwise page shows nothing. When I look at the about:protections page, it shows that I still have 400+ logins and passwords protected. I tried to make a new profile and import backup data and Firefox still does not see the saved logins and passwords in the new profile. Any ideas on what is causing this behavior? I have so many accounts, and would like to get this functionality working again.

Hi,

I cannot find the way to remove the Adblock Plus extension for the life of me. It says "Can't be removed". I re-started in Safe-Mode, and it still cannot be removed. I did Firefox's "fresh re-install" thing, which is supposed to remove all extensions, and it's still there. Should I report the extension? Help.

Thanks

Hi, my Password Manager Extension (LastPass) always requires me to login after opening Firefox. It used to login automatically and is set to do so, but..it doesn't. I suspect a Firefox setting is preventing it from doing so, because this started after i did a Firefox-reset for an issue with my antivirus software and flash player. I clicked through the settings but i cant find a setting which would keep LastPass from automatically being logged in when i open Firefox. Can anyone help me here?

Thanks in advance Üso

Firefox was working ok to browse localhost:8000 on a development machine running Django development server. However, it suddenly stops working (perhaps after a nightly update). The Django server is running fine at http://127.0.0.1:8000/ but when trying to browse http://localhost:8000/ it just shows the following page:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-07-07-07-00-36-6e06d5.png

Other browser such as Epiphany browser are working ok. I know it´s a problem with Firefox settings because I fixed before for the previous version but unfortunately I don´t remember how I fixed it (I feel so silly now for no been taking notes). It seems that now Firefox updated automatically overnight and override the settings.

Any ideas?

When I try to open a local file using file:///Users/myuser/Documents/... , I get "Access to the file was denied". I'm on macOS 10.15.5. GetInfo on the file shows that I have read and write access. Firefox version is 77.0.1. I can't recall whether I gave Firefox permission to access my Documents folder when I first ran it on macOS 10.15. If I didn't, I don't know how to now give it access.

Recently Firefox has been asking me for my CAC pin when it starts up. The way I remember it working is it would ask me for the pin only if I was going to a site that needed the credentials.

It's slightly annoying that it asks every time I open firefox as I only need the CAC for work related stuff. Is there a setting or something to disable this? I can't seem to find anything that works.

Logging in to the computer is fine, but any time I use google search I have to log into my google account. All day long I'm logging into my google account. the same with online microsoft apps; onedrive, word, onenote, etc. I used to have to log in to these things only after turning the computer off. Now it's a constant state of affairs. Help.

For the last week or so I've been having an intermittent problem when I log into my AMEX screen. The saved password does not always show up. I would normally left click the password field and the password would show, however for the last week or so I'm having to right click to get the "fill password" prompt. I clean cookies and cache regularly and I even deleted the saved AMEX cookie(s) and resaved them again. Sometimes it works as it should other times it does not as described above. I've not seen this problem with other web sites. The usually left click to populate the password field. No problems with the user name field. That populates automatically. I look forward to anyone's comments. Thanks

The control page of my locally connected printer at 192.168.1.5 is being blocked as a "dangerous" site because it doesn't have a valid certificate as a web site. It's literally RIGHT NEXT TO MY COMPUTER! No path to the public internet is involved! How can I make this an exception (i.e. a "trusted site") to the certificate error blocking routine? I don't want to drop certificate checking for OUTSIDE web pages, just the one that controls my printer (the same IP address is accessible for printing and scanning, but not for editing my printer's options).

The frame for the printer's home page displays but with no data, and no data is displayed when anything is clicked. I've tried to add a screen shot but it doesn't upload.
