Possible bug - Strange, unprompted pop-up containing autofill entry data

Hi, I don't know exactly what this issue is, but I've attached a screenshot of my issue and I'll try to describe it as best I can. Last night, I was browsing a local news website (Fox 10 Phoenix) and had multiple tabs open from that site and others. When I switched to any of the Fox 10 tabs, a little box would pop-up in the upper-left hand corner and it contained 4 lines of my saved autofill entry data (2 email addresses, phone number, and a username). I had never visited this particular site before, and I didn't notice any boxes that Firefox would've tried to prompt me with autofill.

This is the first and only time I've ever noticed this behavior. It only appeared on the Fox 10 tabs and it happened on all 3 tabs. I could select one of the entries in the box and that also made it disappear, but I couldn't find where it was trying to autofill. Otherwise, it remained on the screen until I would scroll and then it disappeared and would not reappear if I returned to the original position. It did reappear if I changed tabs and came back. It was also the same 4 autofill entries each time.

Is this a Firefox bug or anything else I should be concerned about?

Thanks

Updated to 98.0.2 last night or this morning, and now videos that are attached to or included in emails do NOT open/do not play. They worked fine before. Happening in both gmail and Yahoo! mail (sbcglobal.net). [I don't use Chrome nor Edge] I checked the download file; nada. Message from FF is "failed" Other MP4, WAV files etc. open an play fine - but Not if they are in an email

UPDATE 3/27/22 1913HRS. Just returned from my other residence; my wife's PC is still using 98.0 or 98.0.1 and it played the videos just fine. Only difference between our PC's is her's uses an 990x mobo and a GTX 960/4GB video card.

UPDATE 3/28/22 1047a.m. pst. Cannot download anything using Firefox 98.0.2. Just tried to download a short clip; Failed. Video drivers from NV website; Failed. A couple other things earlier but don't remember what nor where they were. Edge downloaded the video drivers just fine (again, had to dl to disc enable to use them.) jonzn4SUSE - did you get my email and have you had any luck ( or the time to do it) finding the problem/solution???

3/30/22, I just did a refresh of Firefox, it did not correct the problem. IS there any "easy way" to roll-back to version 98.0.1 4/10/22: I found the solution on my own after several hours of searching. Open "about:config", click "Accept the risk and continue" button; at the top click/select "show all". Find highlighted "browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel". Change setting to false'bold text' Thank you to the web site Techdows; solution was published on 3/4/2022. https://techdows.com/2022/01/firefox-97-download-flow-changes.html

Of necessity I've changed my email address. My earlier, saved, Pocket articles remain accessible if I enter the name of my previous email address & password but, as the address is now not sustained, I cannot add to Pocket. I wish to be able to add new articles to Pocket using my new email address, but not lose those articles already saved. I see that I can create a secondary account, but have not been able to establish whether this 'wipes' Pocket articles saved previously. Your help would be appreciated.

Every time I close Firefox, whether normally or using Allt-F4, there is a short pause (1 - 2 seconds) then around 20 - 30 seconds of intense disk activity which locks everything else on my PC (Win 10 pro 64). If I hard shut down the pc (ie, switch off the power) there is no adverse effect on firefox after restart, so whatever it's doing is apparently unnecessary anyway. How do I cure this, it's irritating me intensely - enough to seriously consider using another browser

I was happy to learn Mozilla is so committed to privacy. But the fact it does not allow the "Look Up" feature on Mac's when you get the definition of a work by selecting then right-clicking on a word is ridiculous.

Unfortunately this is a deal breaker. Will it ever be fixed or should I go back to any other web browser that does allow this?

Fonts become bold after last update of Firefox

So I like when my Default Zoom is 120% and when coding above 130% or 140% to see code more clear. For Example, here :

https://www.w3schools.com/js/tryit.asp?filename=tryjs_array_foreach_2

When I was Zooming to 130% fonts were still thin as I like and that because I unchecked this option in Language and Appearance > Advanced > Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above. (and the rest of options was default)

So everything was fine as I wanted. After last update of Firefox fonts become bold when I zoom, and I really don't like it… and when I was coding in Console fonts were also thin, but now bold.

Can anyone help me to fix this as it was before ?

Running 98.02, Windows 10. Firefox keeps opening without all my tabs and other personalized information. Just a single tab or maybe 2 that have nothing to do with me. If I go to about:profiles, one of the profiles listed will (so far) have my lost information. When I recovered the first time, I quickly created a profile if the current, good configuration. However, now when the problem recurs and I go back to that profile I created, Firefox is once again a single tab of a URL I've never seen. I'm afraid I will lose everything!

BTW the first symptom was that when I clicked on a link in email (Outlook 2021), the link opened in a new Firefox window, not a new tab of the current window. This, despite telling Firefox not to do that in Settings and checking about:configuration to make sure it would not occur.

I need to constantly copy/paste in my job -- quickly, I do online support -- and the latest version seems to have disabled the right click copy/paste menu. It either doesn't do it at all, or it pastes only the last word. I have to paste single sentences out of other paragraphs, or copy URLs. What's up with the functionality not working? It is a serious problem. I've used firefox happily and almost exclusively for years, but if this continues, I'll have to go to another browser. Fix the problem so copy/paste using the right click menu works for any amount of text from any source.

My laptop crashed. I got a new one but I cannot remember what my login info is for firefox. I had lots of saved passwords and bookmarks that I need to get back. I tried the two email addresses that I would have used and neither of them can access my old passwords and bookmarks. In fact, with either login I used I get the same saved passwords and the same bookmarks.

I have a 2 hard drive laptop, HP Omen. In an attempt to save space on the primary hard drive I moved Firefox to the secondary drive. It would open after that but no pages will load. I've checked my internet connection, Chrome works just fine, I've restarted my laptop multiple times. I've reinstalled Firefox multiple times as well. No matter what I do, no pages will load. I'm not getting any error messages. I'm made sure that Firefox has been uninstalled from my secondary drive and reinstalled it on my primary but it still won't work. Any suggestions would be of great help.

I am browsing the a proxy solution that is configured to block malicious files. I was testing the eicar file download through https://www.eicar.org/?page_id=3950. When I click on the download, my download is blocked and nothing happens (which is expected). However, if I right-click on the file and select "Save Link as" option, I get the block message, I get the pop-up window to save the file, and Firefox creates a file in the specified location. However, the file is invalid (obviously as the download was blocked). If I try the same with another Browser (like Chrome), it gives an error "Failed - Forbidden" for the download.

Trying to understand how Firefox handles such instances, does it first create a file in the specified location, even the file is not retrieved through the proxy? Why is firefox not giving an error message similar to other browsers if it actually fails to download the file.
