I am using Firefox since several years with a PrimaryPassword for saved passwords. With Windows 10 it is used since a year or so. I regularily kept Firefox open for several days, but had no issue with it. But since some weeks firefox is asking for the Primary Password every day. This is quite anoying. After entering the password again, it continues to work, but will ask for the password on the next day again. Another post talks about a possible issue with some specific virus scanners, but I am just using Microsoft Defender Antivirus, which ships with Windows 10. I did not add any Add-on recently, so I suppose an issue with one of the latest Firefox updates (current version is 90.0.2 64-bit on Windows 10). Thanks for any tips.

I use & want to continue using Firefox Password Manager but, since updating to Version 90.0.2 (64Bit), The "Please enter your primary password" window keeps opening about every 15 minutes (I have not timed it). I have already entered my primary password & used the auto login with several webpages. Then the login window will popup & I will have to re-enter the password before I can use the features. I am running Windows 10, with the latest updates installed.

I want to opt out of the new (slower than molasses) "trusted partner redirect" Firefox gave me ONE chance for 3 seconds before closing the option window.

This has resulted in slowing down an already too slow event in Firefox. This is why users are going to chrome.

It's a great idea as an option. Not a great idea to force it on users.

Thanks for your help,

I have been automatically updated to 90.0.2 on several machines (most 64-bit Windows 7), but there appear to be problems with the latest version. I can't see evidence that these have already been reported.

1) Window update. When the browser window comes to the fore (top of the z-order), or when resurrecting from a minimized state, it does not redraw the whole window. Usually, half is missing. However, a cursor-move event while over the window triggers a redraw.

2) I have just experienced CAPTCHA issues trying to get into an gov.ie website. Instead of showing me text to enter into the field, it just showed a gray square. However ,the same challenge works OK in Chrome (i.e. it's not a problem with the site itself).

Are these known issues? Is there a way to regress to the previous version?

I want to get rid of adblock which I installed as an add on.

It doesnt work very well for my browsing needs and is continually getting in the way with selling pleas.

So how to get rid of it ? I do see that I can get a list in firefox of installed add-ins, so why cant I click on a delete delete button alongside the add-ins that I don't want ?

hello! I am trying to play Prime Video. the message i get reads, "a later version of Mozilla Firefox is required for Prime Video. To update, click the menu button on the web browser toolbar, click Help, About Firefox and then click Restart. So i did go through those steps but when i get to the last stage, there is no "click restart button" for me to restart. i would like to play amazon prime video but I'm told am update is required. I do get a message with a green check mark saying Mozilla Firefox is up to date, but no option to click restart. it also says 90.0.2 (64 bit) any help would be wonderful! thank you! (my computer has windows 8.)

I just updated to 90.

Suddenly all my tabs no longer show the delete cross. There is a 1 pixel spot that's hard to see.

When I troubleshoot and restart with addons, themes, etc. turned off, they are back. When I try to test each addon, I get no results. All I can think of is the themes are screwing up. I've tried different themes with no results. Can I turn themes off to test this issue?

Any other ideas?

As of this morning, I can't "get mail"... I get the "security exception" dialog stating the certificate belongs to a different site (which, it ALWAYS has) and giving me the option to permanently store the exception. Problem is, the exception IS already stored... it's just not WORKING any more. Certificate has NOT changed or expired, as near as I can tell... and this configuration was working for YEARS before this morning.

I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!
