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

Is it possible to make a desktop client for Lockwise password manager, as I simply can't live without it? I can't find decent password managers for other browsers The auto-fill is very interactive and fast, and I feel it's unique to Lockwise Any way to make Lockwise a desktop app as well, for other browsers?

Maybe someone from Firefox tech help can explain to me , i have enhanced privacy on', delete all after i shut down firefox, no third party cookies accepted etc....... after i shut down the browser from say watching 2 movies i have ccleaner and other various moniters saying its finding 2-4000 trackers they have to delete. also am being redirected to other websites and im sure the site im on isnt hacked'. google which i stopped using had about 400 trackers after the same. also have adblocker plus running all the time with strict settings. call me crazy but spying on me is not acceptable under any conditions! so if firefox is blocking them why are other programs finding trackers with a long long list to delete? Im sure this post will be deleted as i may be letting the cat out of the bag to unsuspecting other users of firefox. have a nice day.

While trying to log into my Modem gateway I seem to have typed something into the field, and the dialog appeared asking if I wanted to update the password. My finger slipped and I accidentally told it to update, so it saved over the prior password (which I assume would have been the CORRECT password.) Now there's no way to log into my modem gateway manager. There's no recover password option. I don't want to reset the entire modem to factory settings, and thus have to set up all my network and account info from scratch. Isn't there a simple "view password history" option somewhere? It tells me WHEN the password was "updated" but I can't find a way to see WHAT the former saved password was. (Windows 10)

Firefox has been putting that "update" thing in the right upper corner 10 times a day,knowing darn well that someday I'll click on the wrong button. Well, sure enough, I clicked on the "update" instead of the other option and now I'm stuck with this new version that I just don't like. I don't even know what the previous version I had was! Does anyone know what was the last version before this major change? I want it back!

J'ai deux problèmes avec mon Firefox sur Mac Big Sur. 1) La version anglaise m'est imposée. Lorsque je veux mettre le français en première ligne sur Préférences systèmes, la modification n'est pas enregistrée. 2) Il m'est demandé une Capture d'écran par un de mes correspondants. Impossible de trouver une ligne à cliquer dans le menu. Je signale que j'ai aussi Safari et que tout va bien sur ce moteur.
