YES I WANT TO SCREAM. This seems like it is nothing more than an effort to sabotage it is so stupid on the part of this browser. I go to a site and click the link to comment. I had no problem getting to that point before, now i get a message that says "this page sin't re directing properly." WHY? I read that maybe i need to clear the cookies. GLAD TO. but I cannot find out where they are to clear them out. I look all around in security, i look all around in general. i am so sick of this happening. I have to go to my outbox to fetch the email. You KNOW THIS IS GETTING TIRESSOME this browser isn't working for me anymore. I don't find it helpful, i don't find it is protecting anything it is just a nuisance. SO I AM LOOKING FOR OTHER BROWSER. IF YOU USE CHROME YOU MIGHT AS WELL HAVE A PERSONAL TRACKER, I'M SURE EVERYONE HAS READ THE NYT ARTICLE.A SO I LOOKED INTO mozilla pale moon and then looked into reviews and came across this" Why You Shouldn’t Use Firefox Forks Like Waterfox, Pale Moon, or Basilisk.......... and it goes on and on about each. I didnd't read about all because I just want a fast, responsive browser that isn't going to make me crazy. it said good things about firefox quantum -- I DO NOT KNOW if that is what i have now, i don't think so, but I do not want any headaches, i never want to be blocked from a site over friggin' cookies nd not be able to quickly clear them out. and then it says this: "Even if you don’t completely trust some of Mozilla’s business decisions, your browser is just too important to be left to a small community of enthusiasts. We think it’s best to go with a big project with a large number of developers that receives a lot of attention to security. That’s why we recommend against using these smaller Firefox-based browsers, and why we also recommend against using alternative browsers based on Google Chrome. Here are our concerns with some of the more popular Firefox alternatives..." I haven't read on, but look, I if until i can find what i can live with, I would be grateful for some help in finding out HOW NOT TO MAKE THIS BROWSER HARASS THE HELL OUT OF ME BY BLOCKING ME FROM GETTING AN EMAIL, WHEN I BLOODY WELL KNOW CNN IS A FINE SITE, AND PLEASE, I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO HUNT ALL OVER HOW TO CLEAR COOKIES, WHERE ARE THEY? I HAVE ALLOWED ALL THESE SITES EVERYWHERE I CAN SEE TO IMPUT EVERY SITE SO THAT THE BROWSER KNOWS THAT IS IT OKAY.
I WOULD BE SOOOOOOOOOOOO GRATEFUL JUST TO FIND A WELL SECURED BROWSER THAT ISN'T GOING TO MAKE ME WANT TO SCREAM BECASUE i CAN'T GET TO A SITE I WELL KNOW IS FINE, AND NOT A BOUTIQUE BROWSER, BECAUSE I THINK I CAN WELL SEE WHERE "A SMALL GROUP OF ENTHUSIASTS" CAN BECOME DISRUPTIVE TO PEOPLE TRYING TO FIND AN EMAIL. DOES ANYONE AT ALL THINK YOU CAN PLEASE HAVE A SUGGESTION? EVEN IF IT IS NOT ASSOCIATED WITH MOZILLA? or GOOGLE. THANKS AND I APPRECIATE IT IF YOU CAN GRASP HOW IRRITATING THIS IS AND JUST TRY TO HELP...... THANKS AGAIN SO MUCH!

from Security Now:-"You go to, in Firefox, go to Options in the browser's menu, scroll to the bottom of the first general page that is displayed, click on Settings there under Network Settings, and at the bottom of the dialog that pops up you'll find a checkbox: Enable DNS Over HTTPS. So you put a check in the box. And unless you have some reason for choosing some other DNS provider, you leave it set to Cloudflare, which Mozilla has established a relationship with for this purpose." This option is not there for me. My ISP is UK based. Is Mozilla not giving UK based users the option to use MoH?

I want to restore previous sessions but not save Browsing & Download History, Form & Search History, Cache and Offline Website Data. So in Settings > Privacy & Security > History > Settings for Clearing History, i ticked those options. I also made sure in about:config that "privacy.clearOnShutdown.sessions" is false.
But every time i close Firefox and relaunch it, it opens up a new tab rather than restoring. I checked the "sessionstore-backups" folder in my profile folder and indeed every time i closed Firefox, the folder deletes itself. I realised if i put "privacy.clearOnShutdown.history" as false the browser restores, but i only want the ability restore previous sessions without storing any history.
Is there any way around this?

I am using my education provider's secure website that delivers educational content, including embedded games. I am suddenly unable to play some of those and i get the error message: "Blocked by Content Security Policy
An error occurred during a connection to quizlet.com.
Firefox prevented this page from loading in this way because the page has a content security policy that disallows it."
I have read all the instructions on how to unblock content, but I do not have the button to unblock content that is shown in the screenshots. I have tried to add the website to exceptions, but I cannot edit the window for exceptions. It only allows me to remove pages, but I cannot add them back. Can anyone help, please?

I noticed that after the FF68 update I now have "Hidden Extensions" that FF has added. They do not show in the regular Add-On page but are in fact installed but "hidden" extensions. They can be turned off but CAN NOT be uninstalled! I never gave permission for these extensions to be installed nor do have any way of knowing their permissions. It is very concerning that Firefox would install hidden extensions without users permission and have no way to remove them. Please advise as to their permissions, use and why they were installed without consent. Thank you in advance.

resistFingerprinting turned itself on a few months back. I'd like it off, since it passing my time zone as GMT causes issues. Every time I turn it off however, it turns itself back on within 30 minutes or so. Any idea how to turn it off and keep it off, or at the very least just turn off the time zone spoofing?
This has been happening on Dev Edition in versions 68 and 69.

I have installed these add-ons. Ad blocker, password manager, and privacy browser.
After changing the settings in Firefox, my ad blocker and password manager disappeared from the menu bar. I see the add-ons in the extension list. Uninstalling, re-instaling the extensions do not bring the extension icons back. I tried to do a "re-install" using the Firefox "re-install" button, but my extensions did not show up again.
I had to completely uninstall Firefox (which does not remove Firefox settings from the computer ---- WHY?!) delete the registry entry, re-install Firefox and re-instsall the add-on extension to get them to show up again.
But when I go back into settings, make changes, the add-on extensions disappear again.
Which settings cause this?

I found a MAJOR FLAW in FireFox so they Steal all your info you type!
I do not want my "AUTOFILL" being used, yet FIREFOX BUILT IN TO BE AUTOMATICALLY ON!
I also use CC Cleaner and it exposed a MAJOR SECRET BUG IN FIREFOX and you can NOT TURN OFF AUTOFILL!
The "Fake" autofill is reset to always be ON, and if you try to actually Block it, your FF will reboot back to AUTOFILL ON!
You can got to Security and select "Autofill" to be off, but its a FACT, IT STAYS ON! A 2nd security program states the BROWSER PLUG IN is not Off but On! When I manually turn it off with a 2nd program, it automatically closes FF and reboots back on with AUTOFILL ON!?
So Once I turn on FireFox and my autofill in security says OFF, it actually stays on. Looking at programs browser plugin in CCleaner, it reverts and says FF Autofill is ON! When you try to clear it and change it to OFF, you FIREFOX Automatically CLOSES! Then when you restart FF and look again, CCLeaner says its ON.
I was wondering why I'd get the same stuff on pages, and I set my Security Autofill OFF. So you "assume" its off, but if you look close, you'll see stuff you typed yesterday, is still valid. Yet I reset all cookies and run CCLeaner and several other security programs.
So why can't you actually TURN OFF FF "AUTOFILL"? Their is a SECRET that forces FF to keep autofill ON, even when you select it to be OFF!
Does anyone else find this scam on, where your computer catches FF Autofill being on, when you select it to be off?
So all your typing in FF, you may select Autofill "Off", but your computer actually reads that Autofill IN FF as still being "ON".
So is FF only "Pretending" to its users to think your "autofill" data is OFF, but ITS ACTUALLY BEING SENT? If not, why is other security programs picking up on the Autofill typing being sent as "ON", inside the actual FF program? Why would a computer security program reading FF, read the blocked autofill data as being ON, while your FF security controls say its OFF inside the FF Browser?
This opens up your computer to having all your typed data secretly stolen, and if you use your CC or bank info or passwords, they are really be SENT! What a FF scam.... So was this purposely made or what?
I never remember having any "Autofill" Plugin, until the last few months. So is this a new addon, that they use to backdoor into FF and steal all your personal data?

Dear Firefox Team,
Last month I had 2 weeks vacation and when I came back to my Firefox everything was normal except for one website. I cannot access my Telegram Web (https://web.telegram.org/). I can access the page but it doesn't work properly. So I tried to clear the cache just in case I need to relogin but nothing happened.
I am searching help from the internet and found about "Forget" function on the Firefox. So I tried using this method on my problem but I cannot access the page since. (attached the error notice)
I still be able to access Telegram main site (telegram.com) but not the Telegram web.
How to cancel this "forget" function? Please advise.
Thank you so much.

At the moment I have a triple boot machine. Linux running FF, V56, on a hard disk, Linux running FF, V67.0.4, on an SSD and Win10 running FF, V67.0.4, on an SSD. The reason for three is that I'm transferring the Linux on hard disk to Linux on SSD. Going forward it will just be the two SSD installs.
There is a single profile that resides on the Win10 SSD that the Linux installs can see, via mounting the Win10 partition. Up until recently, V56 of Firefox was working fine, except for the usual bugbears of huge memory usage etc. Now with some free time, I've decided to finish off the hard disk -> SSD transition. I now have a problem with PW's being "lost". Bear in mind all three installs are seeing the same ONE profile.
Linux - V57 can read/display the passwords correctly and log me into sites. Win10 - V64 can read/display the passwords correctly and log me into sites. Linux - V64 CAN NOT display the passwords hence can't log me into sites.
Everything else comes across fine. All of my bookmarks are there, under all three boots. The same cookies are there under all three boots. Just the Linux V64 can't seem to find the passwords. There is one file that has the appendage "corrupt" and that is "content-prefs.sqlite.corrupt". I have cleared the cache multiple times.
Any thoughts on what is wrong? Andrew

Assuming I check Clear History When Firefox Closes and also the Cookies option in that section, will I be deleting when closing all the cookies on my system, just like when I select Cookies and Site Data/Clear Data? Or are the History-related cookies only some of the cookies put on my system? I have never seen much information on the types of cookies there are, if that has a meaning.

Hello Mozilla -- I've been dealing with a problem over the past week and would like to ask for whatever assistance anyone could provide.
I've been entering online sweepstakes through the various websites of Publisher's Clearing House ("PCH") for a number of years, but have had trouble with a number of browsers I've used previously; for full disclosure, I have also informed their Customer Service of this issue and will be examining this issue with them simultaneously. I've used Internet Explorer and Google Chrome to participate in PCH activities over the years, but have experienced various problems; late last year, I transitioned over to Firefox, and despite having problems here as well, I had a breakthrough by using Firefox's Incognito mode, which minimized the frequency of performance problems, if not nearly eliminating them altogether. I soon learned that the reason why the site performance improved on these instances was because of the automatic settings of the Content Blocking in Incognito mode, which blocked a number of disruptive third-party cookies from interfering with a site's essential functions.
Unfortunately, about a week ago, I hit a snag; while on a PCH website (while Incognito), a pop-up from the page came up saying that ad-blocking software had been detected, and was trying to get permission to get through the firewall. I dismissed most of the initial wave of pop-up messages, but in a momentary lapse of attention, I accidentally clicked the "I Agree!" button to allow PCH's third-party content to get past Firefox's Content Blocker. At first, I didn't think there would be a problem, since all cookies and data get undone once Incognito mode is closed, but unfortunately, the third-party content from PCH websites continue to get past the Content Blocker, especially while in a private window. What's worse, all efforts to undo this mistake have failed, despite taking a number of troubleshooting measures to re-establish a firewall on third-party content from these sites.
In the last several days, I have refreshed Firefox several times, uninstalled (and reinstalled) the browser on several occasions, and have even used the Profile Manager to delete all files from the browser's profile. Despite all these actions taken, the browser continues to recognize third-party content from all PCH web pages while in Private Browsing. I've also used the site information to adjust the privacy settings to levels higher than "Standard" instead; I've set the Content Blocking level to "Custom" in order to block all third-party cookies, and failing that, went ahead and set it to "Strict" to try blocking everything. Nonetheless, the third-party content still manages to get through, and subsequently drags both website and browser performance down with it. I will include a couple of screengrabs taken in the last few days of recent attempts at private browsing, with the site information drop-down windows visible to display some of the third-party cookies that are detected while Incognito.
With all the aforementioned steps taken so far, I wanted to ask if there is anything else that can be done to undo the permission I accidentally gave to these websites and go back to the third-party contents thereof being prevented from displaying while in private windows. Even in the site information tab, it clearly states that "no special permissions are given to this website." I would like to repeat for all's benefit that I am also in the process of discussing this matter directly with PCH Customer Service to see if the problem can be corrected from their end, if not through Mozilla. Again, it took a brief lapse in focus to grant this site permission to breach the private-window firewall, but nothing has worked so far to undo this mistake.
I welcome all helpful advice to this end, and I thank everyone in advance.
P.S.--- My apologies; I've tried to add a pair of JPEG images to this message, but they did not seem to want to upload (I was able to type out the entirety of this question, and finished well before the uploading of the first image did), so I won't be able to include them here for the time being. I will try to do so again at a later time.
