There is no shortage of privacy protection plugins, which I consider to be a good thing However, Firefox also has tracking protection on board itself. This leaves me wondering if and how much overlap there is between these privacy protection plugins and Firefox tracking protection and if having both or multiple of these enabled, isn't simply overkill?

To illustrate, I have tracking protection set to strict. In addition, I use EFF Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin, NoScript and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials.

If I have Firefox tracking protection set to strict, do I still need Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials? These seem to cover the same functionality but one may be better than the other. How do I know which to choose? (NoScript is more a security feature, so that's another matter).

So, I accidentally clicked a link that takes me to a site I have never logged into. Firefox prompts me with 3 userids. One is more or less a throwaway, but two are for sites I want to be secure.

I have disabled the form history in options. I have selected each item and tried either delete or shift-delete. None of these options work.

The site continues to present me with 3 userid options.

I hope this is not a major security threat since I am the only user on this computer and the site is one I have never visited, but it worries me nonetheless that I cannot remove the Firefox suggestions.

Hi there, When I navigate to Settings in Firefox -> (don't know the exact term in English) Privacy and Security -> Cookies and website data I see this "The saved cookies, website data and the cache currently occupy xx MB" and three buttons Remove Data, Manage Data, and Manage Exceptions. When I click the first button to remove the data, the data is erased but it always leaves an 85Kb amount. Why? I can remember times when all of this data was removed. Kind regards.

I am new to Firefox. I need speech to text and Text to speech, to run on all sites and all search boxes. And still be secure is the recommended software or add-ons or is it integrated into Firefox. This is one of the main reasons I have not moved from Google Chrome.

In Firefox 84.0.2 I tried to access an old YouTube account from a gmail email. it signed me out and I have to change the password to get back in to gmail. It gave me message about "a suspicious app, etc." but I KNOW I don't have any suspicious anything on my new Macbook Pro. I finally realized that on Chrome I can stay signed in, but in Firefox, every time I try to sign in with the changed password, it goes through the whole thing again. I want to use Firefox, but right now I want to be able to access my email! I also don't want to have to stay signed in. Also, I was on a new device, AND in another country -- Apple could not help me (just said to change password), and I didn't have Chrome on my new Mac at that point, though probably should have tried it before all the changing....

Anyway, I looked up everything I could. The checkbox that the directions at one point said to uncheck isn't in my screen in Firefox 84.0.2. Thanks.

Hi, I received an email this morning supposedly from mozilla support which stated there was a reply to a question I posted here about 5 years ago. Not the kind of person to click links in emails I signed in directly to my Firefox account and searched for replies to my original question and did not see a reply from the poster who was mentioned the email. How can I determine if this email is actually from mozilla and if it is not what should I do with it? I did check my email using the Firefox Monitor and nothing showed up. Thank you.
