Hello,

   About a week or two ago Firefox started asking me for my master password about every ten minutes or so even though the browser has been running all along. I understand that it asks for it when I start up the browser and when looking at saved passwords but this is happening all day long even with the browser just being open all day. I don't typically close it unless I turn my computer off (which I rarely do)

Thank you for your input!

I've noticed I've had a number of new Firefox updates recently. I've also noticed it takes much longer to load my initial web site when I log into Firefox. That web site is my head page, MSN. It now takes much longer to load that site than before. Is it possible these updates have caused the problem? How can I see what is causing the lengthy wait time for my head page to appear. It takes much longer than it used to. Appreciate input into the issue. Thank you.

Ever since version 90.0.1, now using 90.0.2, the mouse has become very sluggish/jerky, even in settings pages. I have no extensions or addons installed and am using the system theme. Troubleshoot mode works fine and refreshing firefox does not help. This is on Windows 7 Ultimate.

Thanks, Steve

Firefox does not respond to a search request. After closing, a restart is answered by an error message - "Firefox is already running. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." When this is done, another instance of Firefox displays. It appears that two instances of Firefox have opened when only one was requested and the second has somehow disabled the search request, either manual (direct) or from a separate application/link. I have completed a Refresh without any change in behaviour. What can I do now? Thank you Graham Garden

There are no more borders around the tabs except the active one. It is hard to click click fast to change to another tab - special with pinned tabs with some icons blured with the theme I love. Also the theme-icons got deactivated and there is now the lower bar empty without the tabs. They went up into a new bar higher added. How can I fix that with boardred tabs located downwards and the intuitiv easier clickable icons back?

Hello,

every single time I wake up my Windows 7 Firefox refuses to load any website. It is a Firefox defect, because Windows's Internet icon shows that Internet is available. DNS is also working, while Firefox refuses to load a web. I need to wait 10-15 seconds until Firefox condescendingly loads the web I am trying to access. This bug is very annoying as it happens a few times each day :(

When I attempt to access several websites, I am prompted to turn off my ad blocker. As I have not added a third-party software or extension that does such, I assume it is part of Firefox proper. Search as I might, I cannot find any specific reference to such a thing in "Settings". SO...how can I temporarily disable the 'Ad Blocker' device that is part of Firefox? The 'TEMPORARY' part is important, as I do greatly value the function!

Hi Everyone, When I try to access a particular website, there is no real graphical display - simply text scattered everywhere.

I visit loads of different sites each day, and this is the only one where this problem occurs.

The website Owner thinks it might be something to do with a CSS file(?) but, as I do not have the problem elsewhere, I am unsure.

If anyone can help on this, I'd be very grateful.

Thank you.

I've been using Firefox to do my internet banking for years, but last week suddenly it doesn't work any more. I get a message saying "Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit."

Please can someone sort this out as I rely heavily on Firefox for this purpose.

Using Microsoft Edge it all works as normal, so that is my work-around, but would prefer to use Firefox if I can.

Been using FF since 2005ish. (Me 1946) Latest version (90.0.2 (64-bit) annoys me greatly because I can't remove the unwanted 'Pocket' BS. I've followed several online 'advices' on this, including this site, & still it persists.

FF is getting like IE IMO, with all the awkwardness to remove unwanted Bloatware. For an 'Ordinary User'. Could some knowledgeable FF user please explain, in language I can understand, English, but not very Tech Savvy) how I remove Pocket from the browser Thanks.

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?

When version 89.2 rolled out, I was highly displeased by the fact that the default theme now no longer properly reflected the Windows theme settings (extremely noticeable on my end, since I use the Windows Classic theme with customized "3D object" colors); this defect had already affected the options dropdown but had now spread to the address/navigation bar, bookmarks toolbar, and scrollbar. This was extremely annoying, especially since none of the add-on themes can properly duplicate that aesthetic function. One of the things I liked about Firefox was that unlike Chrome, Opera, and Edge... it actually still respected the Windows theme settings (which programs like browsers should do by default). And now, that prized trait had been inexplicably and insensibly discarded.

I was further displeased by the removal of the dividing lines between tabs. This made Firefox substantially harder for me to use, almost headache-inducingly so. Whoever you have testing these changes before rollout - if anyone - should be replaced, because this was a massive accessibility downgrade. Unacceptably so.

These changes were so frustrating and ugly, and made the browser so much more difficult for me to use, that I reverted to version 88 and continue to remain on that version.

Does version 90 resolve these issues? If it does, I'll update. But if not.... then in my opinion it should be axed and you should cease pushing it in favor of working on a new version that does fix these poor decisions. And I'll be sticking to version 88 until that happens.
