I just heard that Chrome and Edge have updated due to a zero-day exploit as documented in CVE-2022-1096. Does that also apply to Firefox, and if so, do I need to do anything or are you folks working on it?

Thanks.

For over a decade I've used FF, and when I download things (99% of the time from Yahoo) I set FF to "always ask" what to do with downloads. Suddenly that changed and it started downloading everything automatically to the Download Folder.

I went to options and changed everything back to "always ask."

FF does always ask... but... it ALSO still auto downloads to the Downloads Folder now.

And I can't figure out how to stop that.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi, I really like using an extension frequently. However, every so often the extension's quick-access icon disappears from the Firefox Menu Bar. I am able to get it to re-appear by disabling it and re-enabling it, however, it's a tedious hassle doing it regularly. And I would prefer not to pin it to the Overflow Menu, as is available through the right-click dropdown from the Menu Bar, since it's an additional layer of obfuscation. How can I pin the extension properly to the Menu Bar?

Background: I am on the Beta track, currently running 98.0b4 on Mac OSX 11.6.1, until kinks are worked out of Monterey.

Issue: One of the latest FF upgrades has killed my ability to login to Netflix. I get an orange popup field stating "Incorrect password. Please try again or you can reset your password." The password is fine, as I'm able to login using my backup browsers, Safari and Vivaldi. The issue persists when I try to log in using a private window that doesn't allow any add-ons, so I don't see that as the issue.

Firefox is still my preferred and default browser, so I'd like to see this resolved before.

Sometimes when starting Firefox ("developer edition", running on Ubuntu 20.04, Gnome shell, X11 windowing system) it appears 80% full screen -ish, but actually the window is full screen size - you just can't see it. It flashes really fast, and doesn't repaint correctly. It's very hard to get rid of it as you're never sure what you're clicking on.

Restarting it a few times and I get lucky and it works. I think this problem has gotten worse over the last few months.

I believe it might be something to do with the anti fingerprinting, but I'm not sure. It's making it unusable for several friends, but I'm a bit more stubborn so I'm looking for a fix.

How do I change the font size of Firefox's headers elements: menu, tabs, bookmark toolbar, bookmark manager without changing the font across Mac iOS or otherwise messing up the other settings?

I've searched this question and found one answer archived that did not really fix the problem. I'm looking for an extension or a setting integrated in FF, not a font size change in Mac iOS (Monterey) or one that changes the font in the browser pages.

Love FF and Mozilla and all the volunteers who make my entire work day so easy with great, secure, handsome products! I'm a devoted fan. Thank you!

I was extremely disappointed to be forced to view a full-page advertisement for Disney when I started Firefox this morning. How can I ensure that this NEVER happens again?

I have been a dedicated Mozilla user for over 15 years, tolerating Firefox's many bugs and rapid decline in overall quality the last several years, but if I get another ad like this I have absolutely no reason to continue using Firefox and will start using Chrome immediately. I might as well just give all my info to Google if the alternative is to be forced to not only view ads, but view ads from companies such as Disney. This crosses a line and is not acceptable.

Thanks

Hello there,

I am trying to better myself in terms of security do's and don'ts and one thing I don't understand

The primary password is for encrypting/guarding the files which store my logins, correct?

After unlocking with my primary password the files are no longer encrypted/guarded and I can use my logins but another party could snatch them as well?

Now here is the thing, I thought there was a setting in about:config as default so the password timeouts after 15 minutes, I looked and it was there and I didnt touch it and I dont use any extensions which tamper with sessions or passwords

But I don't have to retype my primary password the whole day normally, only when I close and reopen Firefox? How can it still have access to my logins all day? And is that bad like are all my logins unencrypted in my RAM or something?

Thank you for your time and for reading

After Firefox 98.0 was installed on HP laptop Windows 10 today (3/8/2022) I cannot access online banking for Citizens Bank. URL is https://citizensbankonline.com. I can access online user name and password but cannot proceed to security question which is necessary before accounts can be shown. URL worked fine with Firefox 97.0. URL works with Google Chrome. Firefox 98.0 works fine with online banking with other banks I deal with. It's just this one URL I am having problems. After entering the online user name and password and hitting "login" the screen is a white blank and will not proceed further. I called Citizens Bank and my account is not locked.
