Hi i have firefox with facebook on my windows 10 = recently i was hacked through fb and identified the unknown device and changed my password - the hack came through messenger - now i have that fake identity displayed when i sign in to fb. is there a way to reinstall the facebook container to make it disappear? i uninstalled fb on my phone along with messenger but it doesn't seem i have the flexibility to do that with messenger in firefox - ideally i would like to disable messenger completely on my computer. thanks for your time, patrina

I use the dropdown in the search bar on Firefox (called "Awesome Bar," I think?). However, there are search engines which are clearly pinned. For example, @amazon or "Search with Amazon" or "Search with Google."

How can I delete them?

I have searched through this issue in the Community, and the solutions there are not available to me. I cannot "Hold" the item, and press delete. I cannot "right-click" on the item. I cannot highlight the choice and delete, either through right-clicking or hitting the delete key.

Please advise. I want the other choices to be available.

Thanks.

I received a FireFox update today and lost all of my bookmarks. I tried to sign into Firefox Sync using my work email and I couldn't remember my password. I tried to reset it and when I get to the screen to enter the new password, I get a warning that says Undeliverable Email. I've tried multiple times to reset it and no luck. Any ideas on how this can be resolved?

I have a Synology NAS which is set up for HTTPS using a certificate from LetsEncrypt (Synology's recommendation) However when I try to access the NAS via my Firefox browser (v79.0) Initially I get an error. The "i" in the URL box advises me "Connection not secure" However, when I press the "try again" button I can access the NAS as normal. Checking the padlock in the URL box it confirms it confirms I have already set an exception to this login. This happens every time I restart my Windows 10 pc. However, if I just close the browser and try again during the same session it connects straight away. It is not a showstopper but I would like to get to the bottom of it with your help... Why will it stop me on first attempt but always give me access when I press Try again?

I was just using YouTube, clicked some button, and a pop-up video appeared that I could drag anywhere on the screen, even outside the browser window. It took me a while to realize that it's actually a pop-up window with no border, no file menu, no address bar! just a floating video with no border at all! Very creepy!

What is going on here? How can this be possible? Why is Firefox allowing this? Surely if sites are allowed to make windows pop up without borders, it represents a huge security risk? They could pretend to be anything - a message from Firefox, a Windows error message, anything at all. I am so concerned about this! I presume this is a new feature of Firefox and it needs to be stopped immediately!

Lately, Firefox seems to be giving more and more control over to web developers, and taking away more of the users' rights and security. It is worrying and I don't like where things are going. Why can't Firefox just concentrate on being a great browser instead of allowing developers to do new things?

Today I found out that Firefox in 2 systems I have (one Windows and one on Ubuntu) the master password would not work! Although I tried my master pass correctly Firefox would not accept it. I had to reset master password and enter login to Firefox synch, remove my device from the list and resynch again to get all my saved logins!

Did the update to version 79 did something to master password?

Thanks

I can't connect to amazon using Firefox but I can with Microsoft IE, Edge and Google Chrome. Only Firefox has this issue? Why should I use this browser if I can't get to a common site like Amazon? Bad browser. Yes, I tried all the articles about security and network settings. None of them worked. How bout a switch that says - here click this an now you will be able to connect to all the common site like duckduckgo, amazon, google, youtube...etc.

Мной в очередной раз обнаружена замена главной страницы и поискового сервиса по умолчанию, сделанная без предварительного уведомления и запроса согласия на эти изменения. Изменения произошли после обновления браузера. Я возмущен и намерен не стесняться в выражениях своего возмущения. За каким хреном собачьим в свою пользу и какой кретин додумался мне навязывать в качестве главного иной поисковый сервис и иную главную страницу, чем те, которые были назначены мной и использовались до автоматического обновления браузера? Каким образом и почему вместо сделанного мной выбора в качестве поиска по умолчанию и в качестве домашней страницы установлен продукт Yandex LLC, который в той реализации, в какой он мне поставлен, по моему субъективному мнению является грязной помойкой новостей, нерелевантных моим интересам, без спроса шпионящим ресурсом, пропагандонским сервисом, трусливо замалчивающим главные с моей точки зрения события, но зато напичканный баннерами с третьесортной рекламой и такого же сорта новостями, заодно с кучей активных ссылок на bloatware, устанавливающихся точно таким же образом, как и этот поисковый по недоразумению сервис и эта ненужная мне домашняя страница браузера по умолчанию? Меня очень интересует, кто с больной головы на здоровую решил, что это можно делать, не спрашивая меня и моего разрешения, исходя даже из самых лучших побуждений облегчить мне задачу выбора поставщика информационных услуг? Кто, каким образом и на каком основании осуществил эту замену настроек? Повторю описание ситуации особо одаренным альтернативно. Устанавливая браузер, я выбрал язык английский и поисковый сервис Google. И он тоже не идеален, но это мой выбор. Я разберусь, чем мне пользоваться - не разработчики сервиса и ПО, не поставщики сервиса должны в этом разбираться и тем более что-то предпринимать слабо приспособленными для этого органами деятельности и даже не господь Б-г, а я. Спрашивается: на основании чего и каким образом поставка обновления браузера оказывается устроенной таким интересным способом, что я, однажды прекрасным утром открывая свой браузер, снова обнаруживаю абсолютно не устраивающие меня предварительные настройки обновленного программного продукта, которые не делал ни я, ни кто либо вместо меня со стороны пользовательского интерфейса? Это что - моль от соседей залетела и занесла? Это тараканы с помойки приползли и притащили инфекцию? Если в доме подметено, то почему бы однажды не отказать себе в привычке заходить, не переобувась в чистое. Тем более - в чужом доме. Почему бы однажды не перестать влезать без спросу, как это бывает в обыкновении определенной категории людей, и взять за хорошее правило ничего не менять в моих настройках приобретенной мной системы, включая настройки приложения, установленные мной, до получения такой просьбы и делать только по получении согласия на действия, после предварительного полного информирования о результатах тех действий, которые будут произведены? Как эта простота вмешательства стала возможной и как оградить себя от девиантного поведения? И третий раз. Кто, каким образом и на основании чего бесцеремонно навязывает мне то, что я не делал и не собирался делать? И, наконец, основной вопрос - как эти девиации исключить в дальнейшем, не затрачивая личное время на перенастройки того что уже один раз настроено мной по моему выбору, не тратя время на скандальные публикации, и не прибегая к отказу от Firefox?

I take my privacy very seriously and have disabled a large number of Firefox features which erode my privacy, including geo.enabled, dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled, dom.battery.enabled, and many more.

Today I've just found a setting I've never noticed before which makes me really nervous: geo.provider.ms-windows-location

Can anyone please tell me what this does? Is it new? Why doesn't Mozilla have a page/resource explaining what all the preferences do and how to use them?

When I type "you" in the address bar, Firefox autofills to "youtube.com". However, I would like it to autofill to "youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" instead.

In other cases, I can use shift+delete to remove suggestions so they no longer are offered; however, this does not appear to work for sites like youtube.com, as pressing shift+delete temporarily removes the suggestion but adding an additional "t" ("yout") causes it to autofill as "youtube.com" again.

Is there a way to delete these suggestion so the subdomain "youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" is automatically suggested when I start typing this?

Ok so I have an issue with loading web pages via SOCKS5 + VPN in Firefox

I tried disable all the plug-ins also changed **network.proxy.allow\_hijacking\_localhost** from false to true and also changed **network.proxy.socks\_remote\_dns** from false to true.

None of this options helped :( I spent all day to figure out what's the problem but with no result.

I have used instructions on how to set up SOCKS5 from here: https://5socks.net/Manual/browser\_en.html(https://5socks.net/Manual/browser_en.html) but every time I try to acces let's say [google.com](https://google.com) I get the message "Unable to connect" like there is no internet.

I beg you guys to help me out... I did a lot of research but didn't find any proper solution.

Thanks in advance! Hope everyone is healthy and happy!
