  1. I can't get into Firefox because of Family settings.


    Hi! So I've been trying to get into Firefox on my laptop and it says I need to ask for parent permission. I clicked ask by email and nothing showed up on my email for my dads. I've done some research into seeing what might fix the problem. My dad and I went into the family setting and turned off all of the child locks. After waiting 24 hours, the same message was still popping up. Since I was over the age of 18 on my account I left the family thinking it might solve the problem. After waiting another 24 hours, the same message was still popping up. I'm not sure what to do now and any answers would be greatly appreciated!

    :)

  2. New FF - passwords


    Hi:

    If that setting is already enabled, then I suggest as the next troubleshooting step might be Mozilla Safe Mode (not to be confused with Windows Safe Mode)):

    Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode | Firefox Help


    • Please report back and let us know the outcome, as it will dictate the next steps.
    • Also: please tell us what AV/AM/firewall programs are you running on this system?

    Thanks,
    MM

  3. How to turn off Family safety settings

    Hello Michael,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are trying to remove the family safety settings. We will help you.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps you regarding the
    family safety settings.

    Turn off family settings in Windows 10

    • To turn off family settings for a child in your family, sign in at account.microsoft.com/family. Then choose one of these
      options:
      • Remove them from family settings by choosing Remove, then selecting their account, then selecting
        Remove again. They’ll still be able to sign in to their PCs, but this will remove any family limits that you set.
      • Or select them from the main family page, which will bring you to their Recent activity. If
        Activity reporting is turned On, turn it
        Off.
        Then repeat for the other settings pages (Web browsing, Apps, games & media, Screen time, Purchase & spending), making sure that those switches are turned
        Off.

    Hope it helps. Keep us posted to help you better.

    Microsoft family features

    Hi Lewis,

    If you're account is part of a family safety, there might be some restrictions that was set, and it could be the reason why you cannot access Chrome and Firefox. However, let us isolate your concern by providing the answers to these questions:

    • What is the status of your account under Family safety?
    • Are there any error message when you access Chrome or Firefox?
    • Have you tried to check settings regarding your Microsoft account?
    • When did you start experiencing the issue?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps that you've done to resolve the concern?

    You may check this article for reference regarding Microsoft Family.

    We're looking forward to your response.
