Netflix, Charles Schwab, others appear to not recognize my device and require two step authentication, every time, but saying now my device is registered and I won't need to do that again. But I do. What do I need to change so that their marker remains without losing all my privacy? Is it a cookie? Do I have to change the Dashboard to no security? Can I do that for just one website at a time?

I have resist fingerprint settings turned on because I use keyboard shortcuts to open specific webpages / notes and I need the pages to be the same size when I launch the new instance of the browser.

but now the browser thinks I am in UTC. I need the browser to report I am in a different time zone, because nextcloud keeps assuming that my browser is telling the truth.

I cant / wont install third party add ons.

I have an idea which should enhance security within Firefox, specifically to improve the security of Extensions.

It has become clear that many extensions are collecting and selling information about users to tracking and advertizing companies, without the user's knowledge or consent!

In response to learning about this, I started to disable the extensions which I did not need all the time and then "re-activate" them only when I needed to use them. Keeping the active Extensions strictly to essential security minded ones and a few other that I feel I NEED on a very regular basis - or all the time.

This is a bit of a drag and takes time each time I want to use certain extensions, but I now feel that it is necessary - until extensions are PREVENTED from collecting and selling user data!

Today I had an idea which would help and make this "Less of a Drag"!

When I "Disable" an extension, it's icon disaappears from my toolbar and only re-appears when "Re-activated". It would be better if when "Disabled" the Icon STAYED on the tool bar - but "Greyed Out", and with a right click menu with only two items on it - 1) "Re-Activate this extension" and 2) "Remove this extension". It would be useful also for when the extension is "Active" that the Icon has a right click item "Disable this Extension"! - Currently there is only the option to "Remove", which is not what I want to do!

This one relatively small change would allow users who are aware of the dangers, to control potentially "Leaky" but USEFUL extensions. The vast amount of time they would not be ABLE to track and collect users data, which would make what they collect when "Activated" much less useful!

This would be a useful and EFFECTIVE tool against "malware" extensions which are collecting and selling user data. It would be a useful "Stop-Gap" until you get around to actually PREVENTING extensions from doing this!!!!

Ideally extensions should be PREVENTED from having access to or selling any data and should ONLY have access to information that is specifically NEEDED for the functioning of the extension. VERY CLEARLY the very broad designations of the current "Permission" system do not work!!

I hope you take action on this, because it would CERTAINLY help!

Hi,

I have Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird on my 'work' laptop. Firefox keeps asking for me to link other accounts. I have a personal aol email address. However, when I enter to sync my personal email with my work email, it says, 'Account Already Exists'. Yes, it exists since it is mine!

How do I get this fixed?

Well this problem exists since i first time use firefox (84.0). Problem: Firefox uses 500MB memory with 0 tab, uses more with more tabs This is not a question raised by computer noobs but i am sure that something goes wrong in my computer. I asked my friends and their firefox uses 200MB with 1 tab This is very strange. I would provide all debug information if you need.

Is there any way to temporarily disable Firefox (and Thunderbird) update reminders? Mozilla seems to be updating its software so often that I'm getting too many reminders and it's interfering with my work flow. I understand the need to keep software up to date as often as possible but this has now got ridiculous, and I am on the verge of changing my default browser from Firefox to Safari, Chrome or Vivaldi. Please stop forcing every little tiny update onto your users!

Or is there some sneaky little way I haven't noticed under Preferences which already does enable me to do this?

I use Firefox for work and I have a site that has a pop up window that shows me alerts. When I use this site on Edge or Google the site makes either a sound or blinks in the taskbar or both. On Firefox I cannot get it to do either of those. The site seems to work best in Firefox but I need an alert sound or visual to let me know there is an item for me to review. I have gone into settings and tried to change things to make this happen with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

My wife called me in this afternoon when big red error message popped up "saying" it is a red alert and the web page used Apple's logo on it, said the old 2011 iMac, OS 10.10.5 Yosemite, is "blocked" and has a virus. It had an 877 phone number to call but we failed to write it down. She did nothing after that. When I saw that I pressed the red window page kill button, upper left. Got the rotating rainbow ball. . . computer working overtime. Next, Command-W to kill the webpage, nada. Finally, pressed the hardware ON/OFF button behind left side of screen. On SAFE restart I opened my account not hers and found Firefox had thin, white, flashing lines across the tab bar area(full width) and tabs were flashing individually. Every time you open a tab, this happens or possibly when it is accessing. So, I upgraded Firefox, leaving the OLD version intact. Upgrade I NOW notice is the 64 bit version.

Is there a fix out there? or, is this thing "infected" with the CCP virus or something? Fix for it?

I will shut down and re-open the old version and see if it still happens and post an update here.
