Autofill prevents forms working - at all! Firefox Developer 91.0b5 (64-bit)

Since firefox updated this morning, I'm no longer able to log in to some sites using forms once auto fill is active.

I've created a new blank profile to test, and it's the same behaviour.

1. start blank profile 2. visit https://bandcamp.com/login 3. enter a username and password (doesn't matter that it's not real) and hit Submit 4. tell Firefox to remember password. 5. clear the form and reload the login page. 6. try to allow firefox to auto fill the fields

There's a really weird mix of things that go on

- sometimes one of the fields is populated, more often they both go yellow, but blank. - double clicking in a field seems to momentarily reveal contents, but then it goes blank again. - typing in an apparently blank but yellow field seems to suddenly append characters to the auto-filled value.

Managing profiles: My Firefox since rel 89.0 crashes several times A DAY. The last time it crashed 6 times in a row then WIPED out my copy and gave me a new copy, BLANK of everything. I am no rookie to Firefox as my first version was 1.0 when I converted from Netscape Navigator long ago. The rub is PROFILES. I have too many to manage now and need to get rid of some but Moz:lla in their infinite wisdom does not put a date, what was the LAST one.... and one has to search to find the LAST profile that has your latest modification, data, etc. I am fearsome in deleting any as they do not seem to be in any order and I get a SERVE warning when trying to delete. Since the new releases crashes all the time, to do critical work I have to resort to UGH, "EDGE' until Moz://a gets a solid release and hopefully STOP TRYING TO COPY EDGE AND CHROME.

Any advise will be appreciated. [except advise to use EDGE or CHROME].

When I was using version 88.x, Firefox had not crashed for years. Then all of a sudden, Firefox would crash several times a day. I looked and Firefox had updated me to ver 89.0. But I let it ride. Then Firefox about a month ago, Firefox stsrted to crash EVERY DAY. Then one day it crashed EIGHT TIMES IN A ROW and I mean when I hit RESTART, IT WOULD CRASH. I tried to revert to rel 88 but Mozilla WILL NOT ALLOW US TO REVERT BACK TO A PREVIOUS VERSION. When you do, the PROFILE gives you TWO OPTIONS: 'EXIT or CREATE A NEW PROFILE.' Certainly you do not want to CREATE A NEW PROFILE as you will LOSE, your history, add-ons, Bookmarks, EVERYTHING and you see a WHITE Firefox screen with nothing. So I choose EXIT and tried to put up with the CRAPPY ver 89. BUT FIREFOX KEPT CRASHING. TODAY IT CRASHED SIX TIMES IN A ROW......When I checked the VERSION, YOU HAD UPGRADED TO VER 91.0b6 (64-bit) AND IT IS NO BETTER.

WHAT IN THE HECK IS GOING ON. I DO NOT WANT TO LEARN CHROME OR EDGE AS I HAVE USED FIREFOX SINCE VERSION 1.0.

DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GO BACK AND KEEP YOUR OLD PROFILE, FLACKY OR NOT AS THAT IS BETTER THAN 'RESTARTING' FIREFOX ALL THE TIME.

MY VERSION 88 NEVER FAILED.

I did not choose a BETA VERSION. I have used FIREFOX since VERSION 1.0. IT USED TO BE THE BEST BROWSER EVER CREATED. BUT NO LONGER. WE use Firefox to accomplish things, not to debug BETA versions all day. One day I wake up and you FORCED rel 89.0 on us and it turned the whole WEEK to crap. I had 6 consecutive crashes the other day. Today I had 5 consecutive crashes. I had to turn my PC off and give it and me a rest. I did not ask for a BETA, even to leave rel 88. YOU 'forced' it on us with your "you have no other chooses if you want to continue using FIREFOX attitude. And all you can say is: Go BACK to 'stable rel 90 AND CREATE A NEW PROFILE? DO you have any idea how hard it is for us, a USER to CREATE A NEW PROFILE FROM SCRATCH?

THIS MAKES NO SENSE, YOU CRAM A "BETA" ON US, IT CRASHES A HALF DOZEN TIMES A DAY and your answer is to go back to a stable version YOU FORCED ON US? Then we spend a day or two creating a NEW PROFILE until you force ANOTHER BETA on us to test for you? You can't let us stay on a STABLE version like rel 88 until you work out the bugs then "tell us" there is one available and advise us to INSTALL IT? THIS IS CRAZY, let alone "Professional".

Frequently after an upgrade my FF (91.0b7 (64-bit)) on Win 10 reverts to the previous version. I only notice it because I start getting prompts to upgrade.

Frankly, I'm pretty clueless and sick of Windoze but determined to not resort to Chrome or hEdge. ANY suggestions to help figure what's happening (and hopefully how to prevent it) will be greatly appreciated.

I really dislike the look of the tabs in the newest version. A floating bubble, not connected to the page, for the active tab? And the inactive tabs are connected, but there is no separation between the tabs? Aside from uninstalling the latest version and installing a previous version, is there a way to restore the look of the previous version? Maybe an add-on? If I have to reinstall an old version I'll probably just switch over to a different browser.

Since couple of months ago, FF started to ask for master password after 30 minutes of inactivity. I have auto-refresh for some tabs which use Basic Authentication. After 30min those tabs stops refreshing and FF opens multiple (5) dialogs for master password. This secondary layer of security is pretty annoying as I have my computer secured on multiple levels by multiple factors already. I am getting very annoyed by this, is there any way to disable this "feature"? I have security.ask_for_password = 0 and signon.masterPasswordReprompt.timeout_ms = 0 but it keeps asking (now bit less often but still does). I just want master password entered once when I start the session and keep it open until I quit the browser.

I've been having an issue with firefox when trying to load my emails in aol. I don't have this problem with other browsers. After logging in with user name and password, there is a consent page that pops up. After answering that prompt, the emails should start loading. It's been taking almost 2 minutes to load. I thought that by updating to the latest version, 91.0, today, that problem would cease. It hasn't. Any ideas?

With FF91, it seems I can only delete cookies for an entire domain. I occasionally have an issue with forums.xfinity.com where it won't load. Deleting the cookies for forums.xfinity.com would fix it. Now, with FF91, I have to delete ALL xfinity.com cookies! It seems as if there should be a way to open up the 'container' to see the sub-domains, and then you could further open that up if needed to delete an individual cookie.

So this morning I accidentally involuntarily clicked on the updated window that popped up and now I have yet another update Firefox version 91 and once again I have a TabBar I don't want at the previous settings to disable proton are no longer working. Why are you forcing and shoving down my throat your insane updates addictions all the time! I don't want them I don't need them at this lame excuse for security update all because you're so concerned about my safety security and well-being... yeah right! What's next? In the next update you determine which webpages I can see and which not? It's already happening that many of legit websites I cannot access anymore because I get a security warning blah blah blah blah and even if I click on "accept the risk" and proceed I cannot get to the website anymore. What's the point? For that I don't need Firefox. We're done with Firefox. I'm going to uninstall on all our systems. I've had it with this constant updates nonsense and not asked for and unwanted changes! I have enough already with Windows update nonsense which always introduces another few dozen bugs with every update. Get a life!

....Mozilla were to build a car, (what a nightmare that would be) the next model would have the ignition key behind the head, the drive select under the seat and the accelerator on the left side....

When they updated to 89, large spaces were created in between the bookmarked web sites when the window unfolds. So the bookmarks at the bottom don't fit in the window, and to get to the ones I can't see, I have to click the arrow at the bottom. But making it worse, is that if I do go to the bottom, the next time I open the bookmark tab, the list will open at the bottom (it doesn't revert to the top). So I'd have to scroll up to get to the ones at the top.

I list my bookmarks in the order they're in so I can get to the ones I go to most often as fast as possible. So they're at the top - I don't have to scroll far to get to them. I also use the "Other Bookmarks" tab since that's at the top. But sometimes that's hidden and I have to scroll up to get to access that as well.

Also, this update changed the size of the command windows - the copy/paste window, the "open in new tab" window, and the window to get the correct spelling of the word. They're so big, they run from the top of the screen to bottom, instead of a small square. So you'll have to scroll way up to get to the command or word you want.

I can't stand this.

There was a simple work-around. Changing the proton preferences to false. But they removed them with 90. I posted a message on these boards a few weeks ago asking for them not to be removed. Of course it didn't do any good.

There supposedly is a "fix" to this, but it has to do with CSS - whatever the heck that is and I'm not even going to attempt to figure it out. Fixing this should NOT be complicated at all (like the proton preferences). And besides, even that CSS thing won't bring everything back to what is was. So why bother?

More scrolling, bigger command windows, etc., are not that big of a deal, but that's not the point. Why can't they leave well enough alone? What part of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," do they not understand? If I wanted a tedious way to access my bookmarks, I'd use Chrome!

I know it won't happen, but how can we get them to reset the bookmarks and command windows back to the way they were? Is that asking too much? Ask a silly question...

If their objective is to lose Firefox users, congratulations. It just might work.

With Firefox 91, I can no longer disable the hideous Proton changes to tabs. Separating tabs from their content is a really poor user interface decision. It makes it harder to tell which tab is the current tab. With Proton, the active tab is slightly brighter than the inactive tabs. For older folks and color blind folks, this makes it all but impossible to to tell which tab is active.

If you won't come to your senses and revert this bad user interface decision, then at least add an official option to disable it and go back to the old tab style that other browsers use. If you won't do that, then I will just have to use a different browser. Which makes me very sad, because aside from your bad sense in user interface design, I loved Firefox.
