Hello Mozilla Support, Google sign-in pop-up persists after disabling it. I have searched the web for this solution, enacted them, but the problem persists even after I have turned off the feature in my Google account. (See my attached images.) Some posts have commented that the problem persists in the Firefox browser, but not in other browsers. Thank you for support.

Why are there so many Google tools embedded in Firefox? Many of us don't trust Google at all, and in the current environment of increasing surveillance, it seems very strange to find many Google processes in Firefox.

Hello,

When I'm trying to import passwords from other browsers (Safari or Brave) or CSV files generated by Safari and Brave nothing happens. There's not even an option to import the passwords from Safari, look at the attached screenshot. From Brave however the option is available, but even if I check that box nothing happens when I do the import. Do you know why? I've tried it on both Windows and macOS.

I'm trying to sign into/sync Firefox on a new phone. It keeps saying I need to get code from authenticator app. I don't have one! I try to scan IR code from computer, but it still requires a code. Sometimes it says it is sending a code to my email address. It does not. I ask it to resend code but it never does. I am logged into Firefox on my computer, is there a way to turn off the authenticator or otherwise solve this problem?

I've tried the solution from this closed thread and it doesn't help. I'm on Debian based Linux using Firefox version 103.0

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1349553

from about:config, every sessionstore has been disabled and sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes set to 0

If I close my firefox using 'x' or shut down computer before closing firefox directl, firefox restores the previous session. From a thread on support site that I can't find anymore, I read that the fault was that, firefox was reverting to default settings before closing when using 'x' instead of File -> Exit.

I can't believe such a massive hole still isn't fixed. For me, the worst that can happen is someone will see a site that I find embarrassing on restarting. As stated in the other thread, if you're a journalist or someone else, in certain countries, this can become a life of death situation. Along with other shenanigans Firefox has been pulling, this kind of drives home the point that Firefox isn't the browser anymore if privacy and security is your main concern.

I am not a sophisticated computer user and I have some cognitive problems due to age and illness so please be as simplistic as possible with any response. I was trying out new features and now have the private browsing icon on the bottom bar on my screen. The color purple triggers strong anxiety for me so I just want to get that off my screen. I won't be using private browsing so I want to remove it. I tried to drag it to the recycle bin but couldn't get rid of it that way. Please help me remove that icon from ever being on my screen. Thank you.

Firefox Updates:

Automatically install updates (recommended) = OFF When Firefox is not running = OFF (It's on but greyed out because of the above setting) Check for updates but let you choose to install them = ON

Is it normal that firefox still creates this "telemetry" folder even when auto updates are OFF? C:\ProgramData\Mozilla-1de4eec8-1241-4177-a854-e594e9c1fb38 UpdateLock-CA7422744AE1A41C

C:\ProgramData\Mozilla-1de4eec8-1241-4177-a854-e594e9c1fb38\updates\CA7422744AE1A41C update-config.json {"__DEFAULTS__":{"app.update.auto":true,"app.update.background.enabled":true},"app.update.auto":false}

As suggested i added these two lines to firefox.cfg lockPref("app.update.background.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.background.scheduling.enabled", false); Seem like firefox doesn't give a ****? How can i once and for all fully disable both these settings? Automatically install updates (recommended) = OFF When Firefox is not running = OFF


By the way, during the installation i DID NOT install the maintenance service, so why exactly is the exe in the directory anyways??

Firefox is not saving my settings when I close it. This can happen for various settings, e. g. if I allow a pop-up exception, or a cookie override exception, for a specific site, and save the setting, it will be gone whenever I close and restart Firefox.

Also, bookmarks are not saved - apparently somewhat randomly.

I currently have Firefox 160.0.6 64 bit. However, this has been going on with the last several versions of Firefox.

I have uninstalled Firefox, discarded the folder containing my profile, then reinstalled Firefox. But the problem still exists.

Hello,

I cannot save my credit card number in Firefox, in Settings I don't even have the option to save them and the directions in the Firefox help don't work. #2 below there is no Forms and Autofill section in the settings let alone a credit card option.

  1. Click the menu button Button and select Settings.
  2. Click the Privacy & Security panel and scroll down to the Forms and Autofill section.
  3. Click the checkbox next to Autofill credit cards to turn it on, or uncheck the box to turn it off.

Any help to what's going on would be great.

Firefox 107 (64-bit) on Windows 11

Thanks, Luke

I use a web app for learning guitar at https://www.fender.com/play It used the microphone to grade your playing Using Firefox 107.0 (64 bit) under Linux Mint - after a recent upgrade the mic stopped working at this site Fender play says, " Microphone access | We require microphone access to give feedback on your playing | Please click "Allow" or "Share"above to provide it for us."

But 'old' dialog box requesting permission never shows up. Address bar shows 'mic icon', but clicking on it does nothing

If I google "mic test" the mic seems to work fine at a "testing" site

I think Fender actually uses MatchMySound1.com to analyze -- Has some setting permission possibly changed? Works in Firefox 102.5esr using Debian

BTW: = Settings | Privacy & Security | microphone [settings] doesn't seem useful

Thanks in advance
