crash at start when opening bookmark: bookmark menu covers prompt for general password
Firefox asks for a general password using a drop-down window when opening a page with a log-on section, presumably for an autofill. (It's annoying and I wish I could get rid of it, but that's another story.) My home page has a log-on section, so the prompt appears. But, when I try to choose a bookmarked page, and if the prompt appears while I'm doing it, the bookmark menu covers the prompt. Nothing I do dispels the bookmark menu, whether clicking away from the menu, choosing the menu item, or even just typing the password. I have to restart, sometimes requiring 'force quit' from the Activity Monitor. I automatically clear my history when I quit. Seems obscure enought that it might be a bug...
Did you try to press the ESC key or maybe the Enter or Space key if you can't use the mouse?Read this answer in context 👍 1

Bingo. Command-. makes the prompt go away, releasing the bookmark menu so that it returns to its rightful place. ESC, Enter or Space don't work.
Thanks -- you're a star in the night!
