Hi,

I am confused about the two ways we control cookies. Firefox says its blocks trackers ( ie cookies), esp third party ones, which are the problematic ones. 

But when we surf, we see options to accept third party cookies. So far I always go ahead and select No. But could I be saving time by clicking yes; knowing Firefox blocks them anyway ? Shouldn't there be a way that Firefo sends information to the site I'm visiting automatically about my wish not to have third party trackers?

Thanks, Caroline

Is it possible to have a default container? When I open a site in a container, if I then use the open window to go to a URL that I have not assigned a container to, i would like this new site to open in a "default" container. I believe the Facebook container works like this, it only allows Facebook related sites to be opened in that container any other sites are open in a new window/tab. An example, if i open a bank URL in a "Banking" container, log off and click on another unrelated bookmark (say Mozilla help), It would be nice if it opened in a separate container I had assigned to be the default container.

Updated to Firefox 86.0. MacOS. If I now attempt to access my router using its local address (192.x.x.1) it simply doesn't happen. I've allowed pop-ups for the sign in window - although it never needed it before. Tried http and https. Also have a bookmark for it which no longer works. All I get is a blank tab, yet there's some endless communication happening according to Menu Meters Rx/Tx display. If I do the same as always using Safari I can log into the router exactly as I always have done. Why? What has been changed? What has Firefox blocked? Help please.

The push notifications from allowed sites are enabled in the privacy and security settings, but the little box that's supposed to pop up isn't popping up. I depend on these quite a bit on YouTube, so I need them to work. Any ideas on what might be blocking them? If you could give me a list of things to try, I'd be very grateful. Thanks in advance!

This message is from a concerned life long Firefox user and a life long staunch Firefox advocate. I have resisted IE, Chrome, Safari and all the big tech browsers for well over a decade. Now, sadly, I had to dump Firefox and switch to a Brave clone.

It appears that Firefox has joined the cancel culture mob.... The censorhip cheerleaders.

If the filth in this article is indeed the company view, I cannot in good concience use firefox: https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2021/01/08/we-need-more-than-deplatforming/.

Dump Mitchell Baker. Retract the blog. Have her put it on her personal wordpress. Anything. Please. I want to use Firefox again, but with this sick world-view at the helm, I cannot support it.

When logging on to a website it used to be possible to show the current password that is automatically being input. That is no longer possible it seems so now you have to search the passwords for that website to locate it and then display it that way. But many times the current website is not saved under an obvious name. This makes it next to impossible to locate what used to be right in front of you (current website logon password). The worst is my current case where you lose your gmail password and try to locate it with a search of the passwords but since gmail address is the user name for 100's of websites there are 100's of results to try to find the gmail password. When it comes to Microsoft website there is zero results to Microsoft in the Firefox password search even though Firefox easily logs me in. Why did Firefox stop allowing the user to see the current password being input to websites. if they did not stop that access then I do not know how to do it anymore. Used to be a simple right click on the password field. Then you could go direct to the password manager location of that website.

I was very glad with SSB and use it a lot in my workflow but suddenly it stop working in the 86 version update. Now I know that it is no more supported and I started a dangerous practice of installing 85 version and omit updates (in fact this is not too useful because I accidentally update my firefox two times and have to manually reinstall the 85 version). I now this was an experiment but is a shame they stop supporting this kind of progress. My question is, is there an alternative to SSB currently implemented? Which is the closer form of such experience that can I get from command line? I mean: features like new window, no toolbars, independent (no open links in the tabs of previously opened window), could it be resources independence too? Thanks you beforehand.

I'm trying to install and use a digital security certificate on my MacBook Air (2020). The OS is Big Sur 11.2.2

Currently, the certificate shows as installed, but I can't download a backup to install it on Thunderbird to use for digitally signing emails. The tutorial article from the digital certificate company seems to be for an older version of Firefox, or perhaps the Mac version is different enough that the steps don't line up. Either way, one of the steps is to "Enable FIPS" and I have not been able to do that. I can find the option to enable FIPS, but it is greyed out and I haven't been able to find any information on how to fix that.

Preferences/Privacy & Security / Security / Certificates / Security Devices

Clicking on the certificate itself in the Device Manager list shows the status as logged in and the options that are available on the right side are Log out, Change password, and Load, but Enable FIPS is grey.
