I can't find where this information comes from. How can I completely remove these from my FIrefox install? Thanks

Recently, Restore Previous Session is not working like it did before V.89 (and the removal of Tools > Options).

Here are my settings. When I close and reopen Firefox my open tabs do not reopen like they used to.

Is this a known bug or something I'm doing wrong?

The new tab now but the "search google or enter address" puts the http in the place to move to it.

This is a security problem. Checking emails I often suspect a spam so I do the inspect to find the URL that they want you to go to. But on Google I can inspect it using the search of the URL and not move to the URL. But on the Firefox new tab it seems like I'm supposed to go to the spam website as I'm not to search the URL, just go to it.

So is there a way to change this?

And oh yeah I did finally figure out that the older computer (that Microsoft killed with an update) kind of made some of the problems I had before using Firefox. And now I'm back to really liking it. So again is there a way to stop the Firefox new tab from forcing me to go to the spam URL? Over all I can ignore it and just use Google home page. Thanks if you know how to stop that.

When I try to change my password, it makes me log in, which I do using my old password. Then it makes me authenticate it with a code it sends to my email, which I do. Then I get to the change password screen, enter my old password, my new password, and my new password again to confirm. But it won't let me save it because it says "incorrect password." I know it's not the incorrect password, because I just used it to log in.

Currently, I have configured my Privacy & Security settings in which all third-party cookies are blocked. This causes certain websites to break and become nonfunctional.

How do I configure my settings to which all third-party cookies are blocked by default, but for specific websites I choose they are not blocked?

I do not want to change my settings in which cookies are blocked only from websites I have not visited; because there are some websites I frequent that I still wish to block third-party cookies.

Thank you

I tried to Reinstall Firefox Browser to overcome "White screen" problems. At the end without any input from me, I ended up with--- a White Screen". But I got me Pics and a short video for you. I'm terribly sorry if it is irrelevant to the issues you talk about. Also, As I'm navigating through, I saw some very promising Information by Mr. Jan-Ivar Bruaroey, on chatting while sharing screens. It would be the dream solution to the nightmares I'm facing presently. I don't know how to upload the video, but here are the freshly created Photos.

As I hear if so many people that think that because there see a padlock and https, they'll trust the site to the point of entering credit card details, I wonder whether there might be a plug-in or a simple code upgrade that would alert users ; at worse financial institutions can upgrade to EV if their customers are not comfortable.

I can't add a website to Enhanced Tracking Protection exceptions. I need to add a website to see if that fixing it not loading properly.

Adding exceptions for Cookies and Site Data is working well. So this is just an oversight. Can we please have this fixed in the version? Should be easy as pie.

Please note: I cannot visit that website to get to its "shield" icon. I *have* to add this website manually to the exceptions list. But this is also an issue of principle: if there's a list that can be removed from, it should also be possible to add to it, whatever list it may be.

A question about the option, Exceptions - Cookies and Site Data

Can I use wildcards in the Manage Exceptions List? Than how is it written "address/website" in the input line? Because your Firefox browser doesn't block all of the Tracking Cookies and Advertising Cookies also Third Party Cookies from being download in to the browser cache too! I have other software on my PC that tell me that there's spyware cookies on my computer and gives me a log file of it, and by deleting the cookies doesn't solve the problem or the issue because the information has already been transmitted by the COOKIE or the set of COOKIES to the other websites computers that are link to that webpage or webpages. I would like use wildcards in this operation okay.

Couple Examples of this see below. Adware/Tracking Cookie: potomac-clickstream.capitalone.com [ C:\USERS\NAME\APPDATA\ROAMING\MOZILLA\FIREFOX\PROFILES\DFNBN1BO.DEFAULT-BETA\COOKIES.SQLITE ]. .doubleclick.net [ C:\USERS\NAME\APPDATA\ROAMING\MOZILLA\FIREFOX\PROFILES\ICEI14WC.DEFAULT-RELEASE\COOKIES.SQLITE ]. These cookies are shown as a domain and not as websites. All of the cookies are hidden within this file "COOKIES.SQLITE".

Maybe something like this one that other chrome browsers use: > [*.]potomac-clickstream.capitalone.com <. Or maybe something like this one: > *://*.doubleclick.net/* <. like Internet Explorer uses this to block websites and/or allow websites in its options

I what to prevent these cookies from being download into the Firefox browser on my PC computer!
