Hi,

I have been using Firefox sync for many years now. I just got a new computer and when I tried to connect with my account, I received a message saying Firefox has locked my account.

Would you please fix this asap? I use your browser to work and not having my account back would force me to switch to Chromium, which I don't want to. Please note my account and my email address are both legit. Thanks

frequently two of my installations of Firefox spontaneously open an advertisement window that says is from some place called BROWSEC. Since it is not caught by my two antivirus applications, it must be infecting the browser in some special way. Any hints on how to clean this out will be appreciated. Sample ad screen is attached.

Is there any official or unofficial article/website explaining all the about:config settings? Currently i am trying to pre-edit all my custom firefox settings with the autoconfig.cfg I noticed that dns over https can be pre-edited with the cfg, so im pretty sure the setting: enable https only mode for all windows, which by default is disabled for whatever questionable reason, can be pre-activated via cfg.

How could i do that?

Hello. I want to save my username in websites but not password, so I ended up saving the real username and a fake pwd (and I type it manually everytime I want to login). Is there a way for disabling Firefox asking to update the saved password (but keeping the 'fake' pwd saved)? Thanks.

I followed your help line however, on firefox version 94 there is no "Import from a csv file" for logins and passwords. I am migrating from a PC to a new laptop. I created the csv file from the old PC however, I am unable to import that data onto the new laptop.

I am running version 94.0.2 64bit Win10. Can you provide a solution as this is very frustrating.

Thanks A

I've found a number of sites that have numerous pages or servers that I can't enable the pop-up to work properly.

For example the site will have:

https://www5.site.com https://www.site.com https://www3.site.com

I can't tell which site will be pushing the pop-up so setting the above into the "enable pop-up" still doesn't allow the pop-up to happen.

I don't want to blanket enable all sites but rather use a regex or some wildcards to allow *.site.com to push pop-ups.

I've tried to use wildcards but the dialog box gives an error that I've entered an invalid website address.

How can I use wildcards to allow pop-ups from websites with multiple pages?

Thanks.

I just updated to 94.0.2 and now it is prompting for my primary password as usual but it is not accepting it.I've entered it hundreds of times and it is definitely the one I always use for this browser. I'm locked out and don't want to have to reset and lose my data. It was working fine before the update. I tried doing a refresh and it didn't change anything.

Please help

UPDATE: after about 25 times it stopped asking. No idea why

How can i hide my display/screen resolution from websites? I use Firefox in windowed mode not with my default screen size but websites know my default resolution. This can be used to identify my pc. I dont want that for privacy reasons like tracking and adverstising. How can i prevent this? I found many threads/posts about this in various forums/websites. They are talking about Tor Browser and that websites can identify you if using full-screen mode. But as i said, im using Firefox not Tor and while im using windowed-mode websites still know my default resoltion. I tested this on https://whoer.net/

Another question, how can i restore the default window size in Firefox?

Just a short call would do a world of good. Get into my computer would do the trick & set me free. I need it badly, I am president of 2 non-profits & lay-Leader for a Methodist church. I have been with Fox for years & would hate to have to change. Maybe I could just delete Fox & renew?

A few days ago I started to get random popup ads. All of a sudden an ad will op up that says something like "you are at rusk, get Macafee" or "get Norton" etc. The ads pop up in the center of my screen and are about 20% the size of my screen. I have to click the x to get them to close. Sometimes there is the "don`t show me this again" option at the bottom left but even when I click ok the ads continue to pop up.

I`ve tried a few things but can`t figure it out. I`m retired and not a geek so it can get pretty frustrating pretty quick. I`ve lost my patience to scour through help articles looking for the exact sentence I need.

A step by step tutorial would be nice, thank you. I am using a laptop with windows 8.1. I use Firefox.

Thanks David
