Today, my Firefox suddenly (just after open browser) show me this page: https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/Avatar-Experiment-P2?...

The URL seems to be owned by Mozilla but I am concerned about whether this page is credible because I often hear about frauds like this.

Do you know other way to confirm the credibility by except checking URL with eyes?

For Mozilla's staff: If this survey is yours, how about take survey with advance notice on e-mail, social media, or the pop up of Firefox Home tab? I think this is better for not to perplex the users.

Every day we open web site and enter username, password and push button login (or using autofill). It take 10 - 15 sec. per site and annoying step every day or week we enter again and again and push login. Firefox may resolve that issue simple replace by automatic way by provide "User profile" ideology.

For example web site want to register new user and ask JavaScript to provide information. Firefox popup window like it now doing with audio, subscription and other feature. User select "User profile" and security rights (bio. address, payment) and no more.

This approach already provided in some Apple iPhone application you reinstall application and application get you Apple ID account and provide access to you account.

Using web site now it simple we no more login and password and already using accounts store in FireFox accounts.

P.S. How about Web Autorization API it is complete or is still draft?

None of my Firefox extensions work on mozilla.org. I checked their whitelists and mozilla.org was not in them. There's no message saying that "this extension does not work here". So, for example, if I right click on an element and click uBlock's "Block element", nothing happens whatsoever. Why is this necessary, and is there a setting to change this?

Examples of extensions that don't work on mozilla.org: Greasemonkey, uBlock, Vimium

My Firefox Dev at work just updated to 67 beta. I noticed that username inputs that have the attribute autocomplete="email" are no longer autofilled (and right-clicking doesn't provide an option to pick a username from saved passwords). When I manually changed the attribute to "username" or "on", then it detected it as a username field. I don't see anything about this in the release notes. Is this a planned change for FF 67?

I find the autocomplete experience just awful. I type the first few letters of a site I've visited for the past few days and it's only the 5th match down, requiring me to arrow down to it or use my mouse (tsk tsk). Instead, sites I used to visit a lot appear near the top, or search suggestions. I read this list of autocomplete best-practices and thought you guys might find it inspiring: http://jeremymikkola.com/posts/2019_03_19_ru

Chrome has, and I'm pretty sure FF used to have, the ability to show what folder a bookmark was in when right clicking it from bookmark search results in the bookmarks organizer.

It'd be great to add it back to the right-click menu there and also add it to a right-click menu off bookmark results from searching "* ..." in the awesome bar.

Up until 3 days ago I was able to delete individual cookies. I would click on the remove selected cookies in the manage cookies pop up window. Next I would click on save changes button. I would click on remove button in the drop down removing cookies window. Then the drop down window and the manage cookies pop up window would both close and my selected cookies would be deleted.

Now everything is the same until I get to the drop down removing cookies window. I click on the remove button and the drop down removing cookies window closes, but the pop up manage cookies stays open and the cookies I selected to delete are not deleted.

I don't know if it's a bug or what. I have restarted firefox - still doesn't work. I have restarted my Mac - it still doesn't work.

Hopefully someone can help me.

I moved my old Firefox from XP PC to Windows 10 PC, got the bookmarks (etc) and then followed the article in the support forum to upgrade from 32 bit ESR to 64 bit version, 66.0.1. Firefox works perfectly, from desktop icon, but there is no mention or icon in the start menu. When I right click the desktop icon and click on "Pin to Start menu", a blank box appears on the large start menu with W-308046B0AF4A39CB inside the box. Clicking on the box does not work. Using firefox from the desktop icon works perfectly

Hi!

I just upgraded to windows10. I don't use a paid antivirus or security software so wanted to make sure I am using maximum security add-ons available. I would appreciate your advice.

1) What are the quintessential security and anti-virus add-ons recommendations? So far, I am using the following. Is it too much? Too less? AVAST online security Ghostery Ublock origin ad block plus phishwall IBM security Rapport

2) I read that I should keep add-ons minimum. Are there any cons in using multiple add-ons for same purpose? For example, can I use Ublock origin and Ghostery together as an anti-malware? Or would that diminish the efficacy of each extension?

3) Are the security add-ons one should use in Firefox and chrome more or less the same?

Thank you!!
