Hi there,

A while ago a new thing started happening with Firefox. Whenever I go to a login page, and the username and password fields are auto populated because Firefox has remembered them, the cursor is positioned at the end of the username. Directly beneath the cursor is what looks like a droplet, blue in colour. Clicking on it does nothing. Clicking anywhere else on the page makes the droplet disappear, as does bringing up another app and then coming back to Firefox. I am using version 93.0 64 bit on Windows 10. I can't do a screen shot of it as bringing up snip and sketch causes it to disappear.

Thanks for your help,

Paul

When I go to Truist.com, my recently merged bank, it remembers my userid OK, but fills in the password field with about 200 random ASCII characters. I tried to delete and re-establish the saved password, but Firefox either gets messes it up or more likely the web site messes it up. The result is that the true saved password in lost and the ASCII rubbish re-appears.

Work-around is to not let Firefox save the password for this site. It works A-OK with the other 150 or so passwords. Check out the screen shot attached.

Luv Firefox, even donate once in a while.

Thank you,

Hi, In these last days, I deleted a bookmark folder or something by error. Then I found some daily backups, and I restored from the last one backup.

The next issue was that the following daily backups have less bookmarks, and doing some testing, it appears the Daily backups, now, are not including "Other Bookmarks".

It has less entries from now on.

I want to know if there is a bug, or something changed by itself. How can I fix that?

Thanks

Low fps on multiple iwndows hen one is playing audio or video

OS: Ubuntu 21.04 x86_64 CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X (16) @ 3.600GHz GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER

When I have two windows running and one of them is playing either audio or video on its active tab, the other window runs at a very low FPS. This is noticeable when scrolling, as CPU usage appears to increase dramatically while monitored.

The problem does not appear when running firefox in safe mode, but I cannot determine what might be causing the problem when firefox runs normally: the problem persists when I disable all extensions, as well as when I use the browser's default appearance as opposed to the theme of my choice. As far as I can tell, I have not modified any about:config settings either, although some cursory searching online suggests webrender may be a cause.

After updating to version 94.0b9, the program began to slow down terribly. This is especially pronounced on YouTube: you select a search, enter a request, open two or three tabs from the proposed one with a possibly useful video ... That's it! You can go to a cafe for coffee and rolls. It became impossible to use the browser.

How to roll back to the previous version of the program?

Sub.: now Firefox Developer Edition 94.0b9 for Linux

Today Firefox opened with my account disconnected. No passwords. I reset my account password but still no passwords. The logins file shows a .corrupt extension. I rename this and nothing happens.

Firefox 93.0 64bit Linux Mint 1.0

When I close (X) the window, my session is not restored. I have checked all the settings and verified that they are set correctly. Then, I found that when I tried to quit the program via File menu, it says that I have two windows and three tabs open, yet I only have on window/one tab open. I can not find this other window... What does this mean? Have tried refreshing the app, safe mode, and disabling the extensions that I use.

Thanks!

Just trying to convert to Linux from windows (cinnamon 20.2) using the same display (3840 x 2160) Firefox on Linux scrollbars are a lot narrower than on windows and menu bar icons are too small. I cannot find any settings to enlarge these on Firefox on linux.

I estimate that the windows scroll bar is 300% wider than in Linux (Using screen ruler Linux scroll bars are 6 pixels and bitwarden icon is 12 pixels)

The usability of Firefox is questionable for me like this so I really hope there is a setting to make using Firefox a comfortable experience ( I have default font set to 20 and default zoom to 150% )

However, I can play this "YouTube Video": [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAJSYk5wMiA] I also tried another link in their website, this is the weather link: [https://www.wandtv.com/weather] it starts to play, but then stops and nothing ever plays.
