    Regardless how many times I approve for my kid, Firefox cannot be started on Win10


    When launching Firefox, the same dialog box appears on my kid's laptop: "Ask for permission - You'll need to ask an adult in your family if you can use: Firefox." Then an email arrives to me, and I approve the access request. There is no choice between always approve vs. only this case: there is only approve or reject. Firefox simply cannot be added to the "Always allowed" list. In fact, nothing can be added. And it is despite the fact that the kid is allowed to access third-party apps, and Firefox is explicitely Removed from the "Always blocked" list.



    How to prevent Windows 10 from constantly blocking Firefox?

    I would appreciate any help with this.

    :)

    There is no parental control for approving incoming emails for kids account?

    Original Title: kids microsoft email accounts

    Kids Accounts (WINDOWS 10) - There are no parental control for approving incoming emails for kids account. There are no pre-authorized setup option for kids email contacts. I thought perhaps only authorized individuals on the child's email list for sending
    & receiving emailing messages both incoming and going would be under parental controls as a safety option. But, I ran a test and it seems anyone with access to the kid's email address can send that child an email. This is not safe at all. Emails can contain
    inappropriate attachments from other kids as well. I thought perhaps parents had control and can setup an approved email contacts list and contents are preapprove by parents before it is visible to the child and vice versa for outgoing email as well. Devices
    are controlled, and monitored in reports, however, who is controlling the authorization of contacts & contents to communicate on that device with that child??? as parents have no control options? I like the device monitoring with control offered. Perhaps,
    I may have overlook something in the email safety for kids or is this really a standard email for all? We need control options over contacts for under a child's security and protection as well. Also, the Local account (without email option) does not ask
    for an age. - I would suppose the entry might be regarded as an adult?
