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.

Firefox opening in the background on its own, on startup and consuming high amount of CPU

Every time I switch on my laptop, I found that it was heating up without opening anything. I open the task manager and I see that Firefox is running and using a huge amount of the CPU and apparently consuming a lot of the battery as well. Firefox is not there in my startup list. I have reinstalled and installed multiple times. I have tried changing toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart to false. I have tried changing browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false.

If I do open Firefox now, without ending the task that is already running, and then close it later, it is still running in the background. Only way to stop this task running is to end task and I have to do it every time I switch on my Laptop.

I hope I have described the problem well, please let me know what other details I can provide. I am putting a screenshot of the task running as well. Thanks in advance

Hello,

I get a white screen while loading the game. I am currently using Mozilla Firefox 90.0.1, it is an up-to-date browser. For example, running Mozilla Firefox in safe mode solves this problem and the game starts up properly.

I've attached a screenshot of the Mozilla Firefox browser running, showing a white screen while loading the game.

Best regards, Jan Kochanowski

Good Morning,

I accidentally deleted my browsing history on Firefox for "all time". One of the pages I used to access an office email address on Outlook to which I have forgotten the passcode. I turned off the computer and turned it back on unfortunately. I am wondering if there is another way to find past browsing history?

Thank you.

Thor

Using Firefox on a iMac, and the display randomly zooms in when the only input is moving the wireless mouse to the right slightly. I have found no way to return to the normal display without closing out of the Firefox browser, and re-opening. Zoom may be nice for somebody, but never when their is no apparent means to return to the normal display after it was inadvertently triggered for some unknown reason. This is annoying enough to consider utilizing a different browser......

I have been using Firefox for as long as I can remember, and I have always used Yahoo as my home page. The newly updated Firefox refuses to load my.yahoo.com. Yes, I went to settings and checked to make sure the Yahoo URL is listed. I can even type the URL in a new tab and it refuses to load. Look like I will have to switch to Edge after all. It is working fine.

Security is important to me. In previous version any (blocked) 3rd party addressing can be listed when they are blocked. This list is important and allows me to decide if i would accept or not. A company like like UK's royal mail parcel tracking- was sending messages to Google that carried information about my computer (e.g.browser, operating system etc) I could see this before now no longer. To keep your credentials as independent and trustworthy this removal of information is a serious breach - is this at Google's behest?

Please re-instate this.

Firefox has blocked Acer MSN ca stating their certificate is no longer secure. I can get on the web through Google but not through my Acer computer's icon Acer MSN ca. Obviously something triggered Firefox to initiate the block and now I wish to find a simple way to have it again accept the MSN certificate without going through a lot of confusing processes. I could uninstall and then reinstall, but surely there is a better way.

Full Text of Error Message Pop-Up:

"A later version of Mozilla Firefox is required for Prime Video. To update, click the menu button (three horizontal stripes) on the web browser toolbar, click Help, About Firefox, and then click Restart to update Firefox."

Like I don't know how to update a browser...

I've been getting this same error for the past three weeks; since the last v89.x. Now I'm getting it with v90.0, v90.1, v90.2. Amazon says it's not their problem. My FF browsers at the office (same versions) work fine. I come home to errors.

Any ideas on the cause?

Before this error, I tried to watch a video in HD, but that error suggested I needed some anti-piracy tech (HDCP?).

I kept restarting the firefox browser or restarting my computer, trying to make it my default browser. I have lost on how many times I kept trying. But no matter what I do, it still continued to have Safari as default browser. Even when I did the system preferences of having Firefox being its default browser, it still didn't work. Either there's a bug or something else. I need to know how to fix this or I will lose my mind..how can I make it default if it won't let me.

Good day , For some unknown reason to me my HP printer will not connect to WI FI using Firefox but will connect if using Edge (which by the I hate and resist using at all costs) . I have tried trouble shooting to the best of my limited ability via HP and online , but to no avail. It was working with Firefox the last time I needed to use it, but not now. Hopefully someone can help me , but I have very limited computer skills and a lot of the short forms acronyms and computer gobbly gook baffle me . I ask that with any answer please .........KISS (keep it simple stupid) it . Please no one take offense to the term (KISS) , I did not come up with it , but it seems the simpleness has left the building these days.

Thank you Ken
