Under Remote Control

Whenever I first open Firefox on my lenovo laptop that runs Windows 10, Firefox is under remote control. Closing firefox and quickly reopening firefox removes remote control. This seems like a bandaid fix and I really want to just open firefox once and have it not be under remote controll.

I am sorry but I do not understand your question. What do you mean by "remote control"?

You can hover the robot icon on the location bar and check what reason is shown in the tooltip (DevTools, Marionette, RemoteAgent). If the reason is DevTools then check on the about:config page whether these prefs have their default value (i.e. are not bold).

  • (false)
  • devtools.debugger.prompt (true)
  • devtools.debugger.remote-enabled (false)

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".
