Not sure which update caused the issue, since I've been delaying updates for a little while (maybe 15 days or so). Immediately after starting Firefox, the Intel graphics driver stops working, which causes Firefox to hang on a white screen. The windows warning is something close to "Intel graphics driver stopped responding and has recovered". The only way I can start Firefox is in troubleshoot mode. I tried disabling hardware acceleration, which solves the problem but I'd like to keep using the GPU so it's not really a good solution. So I forced Firefox to use the NVIDIA GPU (gtx 960m) on the NVIDIA control panel. This worked, Firefox starts and works as normal again but within just a few hours has already caused the NVIDIA GPU drivers to stop responding once, prompting Firefox to stop responding too and hang on a white screen. Restarting Firefox fixed the problem. This might have been a fluke but I'd like to keep using the Intel integrated GPU, if possible.

I'm using Windows 8.1 and my laptop has an i7-4720HQ (Intel HD Graphics 4600) and a GTX 960m. I'm using the latest version of Firefox 106.0.2

Any idea what might be causing the problem? I haven't had any trouble with either GPU on any other occasion

I forgot my "primary password" so I reset my password twice today. However, the browser pop up window keeps asking me for my "primary password" and this pop up window will not accept the new passwords. I also deleted Firefox from my computer and re-downloaded it, but this did not help. I attached a picture of this pop up window that has not updated even after I reset my password. I also cannot log out and log back into my firefox account in my browser without entering this password.

Is there anything else I can do? I understand that my data will be lost when I reset the primary password.

So yeah I hope someone can tell me a solution because I realy don't want to permanently switch to Google Chrome

I used a friend's Macbook a few months back and then weeks later he asked me in passing "Why can I see all of your search history?" I really didn't understand his question at the time and wasn't sure what he was referring to. Fast forward to last week and my friend's Mac was stolen. The question he asked in passing now became crystal clear - I had logged onto my Firefox account from his Mac and didn't log out. I have been searching for a way to "Log out of all devices" but have not found a solution. I've read that I can go to that computer I would like to un-sync and log out OR change my Firefox password then change ALL of my other saved passwords. Certainly there must be a simple way to force any device using my account to input the new password next Firefox is accessed.

disable pop=up sign-in with google prompt LAPTOP WINDOWS 11 FIREFOX 105.0.3 64-BIT 1. Over the last few days I have been getting a sign in with Google prompt on most websites I visit. Please refer to the photos. This looks identical to the Google generated promt, however in my Google account settings I have this option turned off. Is this a Google bug or a Firefox thing? With all the other annoying popups these days, this is just another irritation frustration to view a website.

I USE DEV TOOLS from FIREFOX TOOLS TO FIGURE OUT IF IT'S FIREFOX OR GOOGLE CAUSING ISSUE. HERE IS ONE OF 50 LINES RELATING TO GOOGLE/TWITTER/FIREFOX CONVERGENCE

(ALSO, I USE UBLOCK & LASTPASS)

LINE FROM DEVELOPER CONSOLE WHEN I OPEN TAB TO TWITTER LOG-ON PAGE:

20:36:03.881 Google Analytics and Tag Manager is being shimmed by Firefox. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1713687 for details. sandbox eval code:1:9

I DON'T WANT TO CLOSE THIS POP-UP BUTTON EVERYTIME I GO TO LOG IN AT TWITTER, IT'S NEW. I HATE IT. HAVE DELETED TONS OF UNKNOWN FILES IN MY USER FOLDERS TODAY, NOTHING HELPED (LOCAL/GOOG FOLDER & TEMP FOLDERS). MAYBE I NEED TO RESET SOMETHING IN CONFIG OR A REGEDIT SETTING FOR FIREFOX. I'LL DO ANYTHING. Thanks!

I have a tracking app on macOS Monterey that is following me around

On Firefox settings I came cross some locations where I see Google Chrome like on page info about:home or Application Basics: Google Location Service Key and Google Safe browning Key. Also, on a link called Survey where there is Google forms to fill out. I don't use Google Chrome because of the issues Google Chrome creates when I go on my the websites. Why are these Google things in Firefox and is there a way to remove them?
