How can the 5 minute timeout on sync verification code be increased to 10 minutes in view of delay receiving code by email?

Due to problems with upgrading my Ubuntu to 18.04, I've been forced to use a LIVE DVD for the last 8 months instead of a properly installed Ubuntu. This LIVE DVD crashes or drops out from time to time so each time this happens I have to re-sync the Firefox it brings up. This re-sync requires a verification code to be sent by email, but because that email has to go through my Google filtering process, it usually takes longer than the code's 5 minute validity before I receive it. When I do finally get it and enter the received code back in Firefox, I'm told the code is invalid or expired. This is because 5 minutes validity is just too short a time for my setup. If it were 10 minutes, that would allow me to go into Gmail -> Settings -> Accounts & Import -> Check email from other accounts -> and then order Gmail to perform a special immediate mailcheck on my selected account. As a slow elderly old codger myself, I find it too hard to do all this within 5 minutes. Why can't we make it 10 mins?

I was suddenly getting prompts to update Flash Player. This hadn't happened in months, so I hadn't updated Flash Player in a good while. The first time, I ignored the warning prompt and activated Flash anyway and played the video. This was from tcm.com (Turner Classic Movies). The second time, I decided I'd better update Flash Player, and did so. But now the video wouldn't play at all. There was a locked box icon. I searched on various fixes, looked at a few Mozilla support pages, did a plug-in change starting from the sandwich icon at upper right, same thing. Found another fix idea. Went into the C drive, navigated eventually in Windows to the Macromed and Flash folders, and deleted NPSWF32_9_0_0_169.dll. The red locked box went away. A video played. Next time out, though, back to nothing. In IE, the link will play.

If I set-up Adobe Flash Player to run with Mozilla will that solve the question above? If so, please tell me the steps to take. Thanks.

I've been accessing the following website for years on Firefox with no issues. It uses Flash, and I've never had a problem playing the game until Firefox updated to 64.0. Now when I click to play the game, it says it is loading, but it never does. I have disabled any ad blocker or other similar add-on, but it doesn't help. I keep Flash up to date, and have even unchecked the box in the plugin that says "Block dangerous and intrusive Flash content" in case that was the problem, but that hasn't helped.

I can access the site and play the game on Chrome without a problem, but not on Firefox. I'm not the only one who uses this website who is having this problem.

Any ideas what is going on? I don't want to revert to Firefox 63.0.3 if I don't have to, but I'd prefer to play this game in Firefox if possible.

Hi,

On Firefox 65.0.1, out of nowhere, one of my sites is saying:

"You have denied sharing of your location in your browser. Please change your browser settings if you want to share location". I have been using the site for years and haven't changed any settings - in my Firefox preferences my "permissions/access your location" is still set to "allowed". I contacted the site and they said:

"How do I turn on location sharing in Firefox? Configure access settings for all sites 1. Enter the command about:config in the browser's address bar. 2. In the window that appears, click I'll be careful, I promise!. 3. Enter geo.enabled in the Search line. 4. To allow location to be determined for all sites, right-click “user set” and choose Toggle."

But there is no "user set" to toggle. The only words that appear are "Preference Name" "geo.enabled" "Status" "default" "Type" "boolean" "Value" and "true" (again, couldn't attach image here?).

I purchased a new laptop running windows10, and had the tech install Firefox (free version) as my antivirus software. I did the same thing with a new desktop PC six months ago. Without any add-ons or extensions, ads never pop-up, display, or otherwise run on my desktop. However, on the new laptop, with the same Firefox settings, I am seeing ads on many sites. The ads are unrelated to the site I'm visiting, and in some cases are a bit objectionable. I don't understand why the same settings don't produce the same results in Firefox on different computers. I've read about installing extensions or even another product to block ads, but if I didn't have to do that on the desktop, why do I have to do that on the laptop?

I'd like to be able to use the (Windows) control keys like Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U to turn bold, italics, and underline on when in a web page text entry box that allows those settings. That's the usual default in Window in text entry programs.

I am fairly sure Ffox used to allow these keys to pass through and/or had this behavior programmed. Now the first two kick up the bookmarks and the last brings up source code. It would even be better if they did nothing, vs. this.

Is there a way to tell Firefox to let the default features work? Or was this specifically programmed behavior before and its changed? Perhaps I can alter a config file?

Thanks,
