The full website link has /users/login, but when I checked the saved passwords, the link stops before the first /, its just websitename.com, instead of wesbsitename.com/users/login, and I suspect the full link not being save is whats causing it not to show up. Is there any way to brute force it to show up?

After just turning on my computer running Windows 10, I opened Firefox. I open 1 web site and noticed my computer showed a (16) prefix when loading Firefox. I opened the Task Manager and it showed that there were 15 instances of "firefox" running in the background. All showed a UAC Virtulization of "Disabled". But they also showed using 638.8MB of memory. I do not know whether these are necessary files that must run in the background or if the number of files indicates that my system has been hacked and someone else is in my system from outside. Any suggestions as to validity of these files running or how I might confirm that they should be running. I have noticed the number of excessive background files before but the number is never consistent which makes me fear I may have been hacked.

On: HP OMEN Laptop Processor 12th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-12500H 2.50 GHz Installed RAM 16.0 GB (15.7 GB usable) System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor Edition Windows 11 Home Version 23H2 OS build 22631.3447 124.0.2 Firefox Release, April 2, 2024

Since the 2 APR 2024 FF update, Washington Post articles are not displaying fully. When opened, the article flashes the full version, then only displays the top photo and the first two paragraphs. When opened in EDGE, all articles open fully as expected. This issue is only occurring in FF.

Please advise.

Firefox has been crashing on me repeatedly over the past week. I tried running in Troubleshoot mode, and it still happens, so now I'm posting here per Mozilla's suggestion.  :)

I was going to paste the most recent crash report ID, but there are a huge list of them as can be seen below. Can somebody please help with this it's driving me insane?!

Hi, I discovered that in order to achieve that, you set in about:config "permissions.fullscreen.allowed from the default false to true. The default behavior does not stop the video with a single left mouse click, but triggers full-screen. It would make sense to make "true" the default as it seems more intuitive to control both the play and full-screen in that way.

I keep getting this message that pops up in a private window to restart to keep using firefox. Everytime I click restart Firefox, it closes my tabs and opens them again. However, 5 minutes later the window pops up again. Even after repeated attempts of updating, even doing a full restart on the computer, Firefox continues to send this window to me. The private window in the bar says about:restartrequired.

I've tried uninstalling Firefox with a fresh install as well as doing a Refresh of Firefox. Neither seem to solve this problem.

I've used Google Maps 3d on this machine before. I don't use it all the time. Not sure at what point it stopped working, but sometime in the last 3-6 months.

Windows 10 Pro version 22H2 Firefox version 124.0 (64-bit) Hardware Acceleration is turned ON webgl.enable-renderer-query=TRUE webgl.enable-webgl2=TRUE webGL.disable=FALSE WebGL 2 Driver Renderer=Google Inc. (Intel) -- ANGLE (Intel, Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0, D3D11-10.18.10.5059)

Google Maps shows the Global View as greyed out so I'm unable to use 3D. Did a test on https://get.webgl.org/. I see the spinning cube.

Any suggestions?

I have been using Windows 10 with Firefox browser and Google/Gmail for many months. I also have been using Norton 360 and other Norton programs for many years. A few days ago, I updated Norton Utilities Ultimate and after update ran it for standard options. Before that update, I could start Google and still be signed in and start Gmail and still be signed in. Now, whenever I close Gmail or Google, I have to sign in whenever I start Google/Gmail. I tried to get help from Norton (see attached chat printout), but they said it was not a Norton problem and to contact Google. When I researched the problem with Google, it indicated that the problem was related to cookies but did not help correct it. I tried Firefox Help and could not find any useful information. I then changed to Google Chrome browser; that works and I can start and stop Google and Gmail and remain signed in. If I go back to Firefox, I still have to sign in every time I start Google. Appears to me to be Firefox or Firefox setting problem. Help!! Gordon gordonandpatti@gmail.com

Integration from password managers are being blocked by Firefox because Mozilla believes something is critical to protect when trying to access their servers ( account.firefox.com )

Why?

Additionally, there is a work around, with removing ALL entries for the extensions.webextensions.restrictedDomains config flag. But why does Mozilla think they are so important that extensions shouldn't use them?
