TL;DR : Disqus comments used to work while using privacy Strict mode now it doesn't.

After years of it working out of the get-go while using Strict mode up till recently (about a year ago this was really low on my priority list) refused to work I though it was my Ad blocker was causing issues but after setting it in the filters to allow and even after turning it off still no dice.

Removed all add-ons tried again still Disqus comment section refused to load in the websites I regularly visit. So after giving up, I just look around in the browser setting to see if there is anything that may cause conflict with certain scripts from running.

I used to be able to view all of my Firefox history but I noticed today that when I searched for old tabs, they wouldn't show up. When I went to view manage history to look, I found that there are only history tabs for Today, Yesterday, and Last 7 days. There is no more all history and I can't find anything older than 7 days ago. I looked at my privacy preferences and it's still set for Firefox to remember all history. Entering troubleshoot mode did nothing to fix the issue, either. How can I make it so Firefox remembers history older than 7 days? Why did it stop?

Hello there! My name is Bilal and I synced my Firefox account to my other mail [email]@gmail.com. I enabled the 2F Verification and used an authentication app on my old mobile phone. My mobile phone got busted and I also don't have the backup codes. Would you please help me with this and provide me a solution to lg in back to my account because there are a lot of passwords etc. in my account. I do have access to my gmail account, so if you need any kind of verification, please do.

FIDO2/WebAuthn support for securing a Firefox Account

Hi,

I'd like to ask if there are plans in the near future to support FIDO2/WebAuthn authentication for Firefox Accounts.

My question is motivated by the fact that right now there's no way to add a secondary MFA option as backup, and the industry-standard backup codes are very clunky to store safely and use in general.

Losing access to the MFA for an account which hosts all data (and essentially the day to day optimizations of workflows - saved data, bookmarks, etc.) and starting from scratch is a terrifying prospect (I've gone through it before), especially given that Firefox Accounts right now does not have any recovery options after that point.

It would be beneficial if one would be able to add, for instance, a pair of FIDO2 keys for this purpose, or even more broadly speaking any other WebAuthn providers (like Windows Hello). Those would not only provide a better security standard, but also better failover options.

I'm sorry if this is not the right place, but I've not found a dedicated forum for Firefox Accounts issues specifically - please direct me there if there's one.

Best regards, Artur Ciesielski

I lost my authenticator app and am having to redo all of them. Since I don't have it, I had Firefox send me a conformation email so I could access my account. But they never came even after I waited and tried again.

checked both on my mail app and on the web like the support page suggested.  I also added "accounts@firefox.com" to my whitelist and checked my spam folder.

I am logged in to the app on my phone. But that too requires me to authenticate to access account settings. Also, I am pretty sure I have my phone number added - but have not been given that option.

Any help would be great.

When I sync my settings between two computers (one Windows 10 and the other Win11) the Managed Exceptions are not sync'd. Is that normal? For example, if I add Amazon.com to my Win 10 computer, sync and then check the Win 11 computer the Amazom.com entry is not in the Windows 11 machine > Settings > Privacy & Security > Manage Exceptions entry.

TLDR: Firefox offers me to save the credentials that are already saved.

I have saved passwords on Firefox. In order to log into my email, I use the saved log in credentials (which means I do not need to type out the credentials). It allows me to sign in, as expected, except that it asks me to save (again) the credentials, as if I have filled in the credentials manually for the first time.

I have Firefox 117.0 on Windows 11 computer.

Thank you.
