Hi.

When logged in to google (e.g., gmail) in one firefox tab, I am them auto-logged in to that same google account in any new tab or window I open. Is there a way to stop this?

I would like to be able to have one tab logged in to a google product (e.g., gmail, google calendar, youtube), but retain a "blank slate" when I open new tabs or windows, so that I can browse anonymously or log in to multiple different accounts (google or otherwise).

I have privacy badger and HTTPS everywhere installed in firefox, have set the browser to block all third party cookies, and to never remember history (high security settings across the board) . I tried enabling Multi-Account Containers, but I'm not sure how to use it and also suspect it is a more complicated functionality than I actually need.

I would imagine there has to be a way to "break" the connection between multiple open tabs or windows. Thanks!

It is my understanding that in Private browsing mode, tabs aren't isolated from each other and all tabs share the same (in memory) cookie jar and thus, for instance, existing third-party cookies are possibly sent in the same private session.

Why multi-account-containers addon is not avaliable in PB when it can be beneficial?

Hello, Is there a way to use a different theme on one machine (light) and use the dark theme on a different computer but still be able to sync the data?

I have tried this from a previous question https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1242818

Set services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to False, but this does not work.

Did it on both macOS machines, closed and restarted the browser, and changing the theme on one browser ends up changing the theme on the other machine.

Is there any way to have to separate themes on two different machines?

Thank you!

Hello Support,

some day ago I tried to download a .zip file which was instantly blocked by firefox and my antivirus program. So this was obviously some bad shit. I didn´t even try to open it or whatever and I directy deleted the file completely and cleared my firefox browser history and cookies, website data and cache. My settings also clear everything when I close firefox.

So the problem is, that every time I open firefox, still the note pops up that the download of this file, which "contains a virus or malware" was blocked (see screenshot). And every time I click "clear browser history". But the next time same again. The file is also not in the download folder or somewhere else so idk...

How can I stop this and be sure that this file (which somehow does not exist on my computer) doesn´t try to do any strange stuff?

I've run the complete scan of my antivirus (bitdefender pay version) a couple of times, no results.

Can anyone help me plz?

Thanks, Yann

Curiously and annoyingly icloud.com demands two-factor authentication every time when my Firefox is restarted, or even without restart, if long enough time has elapsed. Why is that and is there some way to let Firefox be continuously trusted by that website too?

I'm on Windows and Chrome and Edge do not have this problem. Interestingly Firefox on Mac does not seem to have it either. Could this be caused by our corporate security settings somehow?

As I am on the computer all day, I find it helpful to get around slow page loads and stuck videos by clearing my Browser Cache frequently. As many as 20 times daily.

I have to do these exact steps: 1) Click on Tools>Options>Privacy & Security. 2) Scroll down, wait while cache data is gathered before the Clear Data option becomes active 3) Click on Clear Data 4) Uncheck the Clear Cookies box 5) Click Clear.

I do understand that by using the right settings, I could have Firefox clear the cache automatically, but that would just mean frequently closing Firefox and opening it right back up, losing all my open tabs in the process, so that option really doesn't work for me.

It would be really nice if Firefox could just put a button to Clear Cache (and only the cache, not the cookies) right on the Menu Bar. It would be one quick click and done!

Am I missing something - is there a way to customize my menu bar to do this, or is this something Mozilla is looking into?

So I was on a theme spree trying to find something that fit my tastes better before deciding I would opt for the custom CSS Firefox route, however, I added Dolan's Dynamic theme (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dolans-dynamic-theme/) and when I tried testing it on other sites I came to realize it was not actually dynamic and decided to use a different theme. However, even after a complete browser refresh/clean-up, as well as a fresh installation of Firefox, my browser still reverts to the light / dynamic theme when I click out of the Add-Ons page. I will disable and remove all added themes and select the default and it will take effect on my browser, however when I ctrl+t or click new tab my browser reverts back to the light / dynamic theme.

Really upsetting seeing as I can't stand light themes and I prefer using Firefox for my web development work however now Firefox is sidelined for Chrome (which I cannot stand using). Any and all help or input will be appreciated and if I can provide anything else to help I will gladly do so.

Firefox 86 has introduced a new print preview panel which I like. What I don't like though is that the unit for print margins has changed from millimeter to inch (see screenshot, in German). In previous versions, it was possible to set the unit in the prefs by changing "print.printer_PostScript/default.print_paper_size_unit". Value 0 meant imperial units, value 1 meant metric units. This entry does no longer exist.

There is still the entry "print.printer_printername.print_paper_size_unit" for every printer that's installed. Those values are all set to 1 in my case but this doesn't seem to have any effect.

So how can I set the margins of printed pages in millimeters instead of inches?

This has been going for a couple of days.

I have tried starting in safe mode, didn't help.

I have tried disabling JavaScript, didn't help.

Two "main sites" affected, Feedly and Gmail. Feedly had this problem but it disappeared after a while. Now Gmail is having problems. I can move around and read mails but not respond to them.

Other sites affected "seems" to have in common that they are blog-type, perhaps like WordPress or similar.

I have a Windows 10 computer with the same browser setup and there have been no problems there so far.

The version is 86.0.1 (64-bit).

I'm not technically advanced so please be gentle with me.
