I am not even sure how in the world to explain what info I need. Please be patient, because I don't want a bunch of answers that don't answer this very important question to me: when you type in your email, or user name, which ever is required to log into a website, how it is that the user name is remembered? Which part of the browser is recalling the user name and how do you stop it? I never ever allow browsers to remember/retain passwords. Now, I am having real concern about the part of the browser that recalls user name and whatever else. I went to log into a site, Amazon, and I usually don't even have to type the full email when my full email appears. It is a common thing for all of us. But I see a half dozen of my other emails and possible user names -- as though someone was trying to log in and used a name that I would never use. It was abusive, too. I have a strong feeling, too, that this mozilla site, some people in this site, do not honor people's privacy. I cannot see how in the world anyone could create something like that otherwise. You would have to have access to an individual's browser in their notebook, and use it to try to log into sites, there were a few of them, using various user names. How can one do that? Well some of those people who lurk around here pretending to help, but don't have enough to do and don't know what being professional means. Anyone here who would dare violate anyone's privacy can be charged with a crime. that is theft and worse. To use someone's browser to try to log into sites like Amazon. To be guessing at user names, and making some up. I never use anything but what I actually use, so to see my emails and usernames, PLUS made up names that someone thinks they might use, or someone here thinks oh this woujld be funny, is the worst kind of business that will get mozilla right off the map here. Please how do I get in touch with the creators of this? I can take a screen shot. I have done that before. No browser recalls any thing unless it is has been used and is stored. That is how the user name is recalled, but how could that happen if I never used that specific name? Who could have done that? Please if I need to explain better, ask. This is very important. Very important.

I can't log into my banks any longer. Worked yesterday. Today after I put in my login info I get a blank screen. I've changed nothing. Using Version 72.0.2

e.g. Here is one site, Royal Bank of Canada Direct Investing https://www.rbcdirectinvesting.com/ that worked yesterday, but not today. I disabled add-ons and extensions. Still the same result. I ran FF in safe mode still the same result. I cleared the cache and cookies and still get a blank screen. I'm at a loss. I tested and I can log in using Chrome, but no longer FF. I prefer using FF, but will switch to Chrome if I have to in order to perform my financial duties. So what's up? How do I fix this? Thanks.

This issue started recently where if I click websites like Twitter, Yahoo, Imgur or sometimes embedded Youtube videos, I'll get the tab crashed page on Firefox. My add-ons are updated, I tried safe mode, I did the Firefox refresh, I disabled hardware acceleration, compatibility mode is not checked, and also cleared cookies, but none of them worked. The websites work and don't crash when I use a different browser.

I'm not sure what info you need, but this is for an older computer with Windows 7, I'm using Firefox 68.4.2esr (says it's the latest version) and the crash reason is EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_WRITE

Thanks for any help!

Edit: The issue fixed itself when I restarted the computer.

"Social media tracking block" new feature interferes with (SURPRISE!) control for Adobe Flash

Well, here we are at version 73.0 and the developers are now making life even more miserable after their premature decision to disallow Flash to run without having to be authorized EVERY DAY on EVERY SITE that still uses it (and no, developers, you are not forcing the website designers to dump Flash faster by your stubbornness).

Today, I got a new drop-down from the address bar about Firefox blocking social media sites from tracking me. I can't complain about that -- at least, not until some problem pops up for me as a result of it -- but it is obscuring the control to allow Flash to run, and by the time I got the new drop-down cleared the control did not allow Flash to run and I had to reload the page.

However well-intentioned the developers are, I still maintain that they should -- until Flash officially deprecates at the end of the year -- allow a decision made by the user to allow Flash at a specific website to be saved by Firefox and eliminate the daily hassle of re-authorizing. ESPECIALLY SINCE NOW THAT OTHER ENHANCEMENTS INTERFERE WITH THE FLASH ALLOWING DROP-DOWN.

This is my ongoing request, which will be made on every new release this year until the developers understand that they are making the experience of using Firefox less user-friendly. All because they just couldn't wait for the Flash deprecation to change how Firefox treats that plug-in.

Guys, you are NOT the overseers of the internet, and the internet does not make changes just to keep you happy.

Fix this in version 74 so I don't have to embarrass you again over this.

I want to report that updating to version 73.0 today - Feb. 11, 2020, caused Firefox to stop working entirely.

Well its 2020 and there ain't no such thing anywhere on the page. Why is this still here? And is this common now? They are too disorganized that they can't update articles like this that are dispensing incorrect information?
