Hi, it's been a while since I used Firefox and I don't seem to have a way of getting back into Sync with my primary e-mail address since I can't find my backup code. Who do I contact to either get my account deleted so I can start again, or get an account reset option set to my e-mail address? Ultimately none of my devices are logged in, and I cannot find my backup code.

The impression I have so far is that you have to sign in with another e-mail account (which is what I have done now), but this is not the e-mail account I want to use.

If Mozilla are storing my name and contact details for the sign in, would the best route be a formal request for deletion of personal data?

Thanks

Okay, this has been happening for months now. My site has been intermittently slow on one of my office computers. Thought is was a host issue so fought with them for weeks on trying new setting on the server but they could never see the issue on their end. Main problem is in the admin area of my shopping cart (CS-cart) being super slow but would also occasionally appear on the front end. Sometimes it may only happen for a few minutes, other times would happen all day (or now all week). Then office computer number 2 started having problems with my site. It was so bad (like took minutes to even pull up my site) that I had to install Chrome so orders could be printed. Been running it for a few weeks now without issue but just tried FF again and the problem still persists. I have tried clearing the cache/history on both computers and even on computer 2 completely uninstalled without storing data but still have the issue. What is more frustrating is it happens only occasionally on one computer, pretty consistent on the other and computer number 3 on the same network has no problems. Was even thinking it may be Cloudflare (browser console listings) so disabled using it but that just seemed to have fixed the issue on one computer but not the other. But everything is so random I really don't know where the problem is. All I know is using another browser for a few weeks now has fixed the issue on both computers. I should note that I am on my site constantly so I may see a few hundred pages a week (history was a 6300 on one computer when I cleared it) Anyone have any suggestions?

I've migrated to a new computer and installed the latest version of Firefox. I now get this persistent message when I try to access my email on Yahoo:

"The latest version of Yahoo Mail is not supported on your browser. Please use a supported browser below or use basic Mail". I then choose the basic Mail.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox and once I move around folders for a while, (Inbox, Trash, Sent), Yahoo remembers and gives me the latest version.

How can I make this permanent?

I have three devices, a desk top, a laptop and an iPad. The desktop is running a very outdated version of Firefox which means it is not compatable just to update it. The forum tried to help me with this a while back, but it was deemed not to be possible, and the best way would have been to do a fresh new install, but there was noway to save log-ins/passwords bookmarks. My devices all have the Firefox sync and that is so far working well. My question is, if I dragged my PC's Firefox into the present by performing a fresh new install, would my synced items install ok....after invoking the Sync feature on the new install. Logic tells me this should be so, as it worked ok with the new iPad, but I know from experience that logic doesn't always come into play. (Windows7) Many thanks

About a week ago, Firefox began occasionally opening a webpage or even my Google login window in some random language. Opening a new tab and closing the errant tab would result in the same page opening correctly in English. The language used when Firefox erred was never the same twice. In the last couple days the rate of errors has accelerated. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Is someone other than me using my Firefox credentials?

Whenever I open a new page in firefox it automatically loads a page from the recent history in the new window. This is partly annoying because there is a delay waiting for it to load a page you don't want, but is also quite a big problem when it loads a page from the history that was a pop-up with a reduced size, and sometimes with settings that prevent you from changing the page address.

I don't know why it is doing this but it is unusable behaviour. I've tried restarting the computer (and firefox) but it is still doing it. This is version 92.0 for ubuntu.

I'm using Windows 10 and have installed FF 92.0 as the default browser and recently installed MS Works 9.

Clicking on links has worked for years with Windows 7 and MS Works 7. I don’t see any settings in Works 7 or 9 that control this.

Is there a FF setting that enables this?

Recently I’ve been receiving a 522 timeout error in Firefox attempting to reach URL www.cocoontech.com. The 522 is returned from Cloudflare’s reverse proxy servers (see uploaded image). However, I can successfully reach that URL using Chrome and MS Edge browsers. Only Firefox receives the 522 error. I can access numerous other websites with Firefox, so it seems to be isolated to just www.cocoontech.com. I’ve looked at numerous settings in Firefox, but have not seen anything that seems relevant to this issue.

Any ideas where to look to resolve this issue?
