Firefox seems to override my system's screen-saver settings

When reading a long article without any mouse movement or other activity, the screen reverts to my screen saver after about 2 -3 minutes. The Windows system is set for 2 hours. As far as I can tell, there are no add-ons or extensions that are doing this. Testing the same web sites using Chrome, I do not have the problem. Nor do I see it with other applications.

FF doesn't control screen saver that is a O/S function.
