I have an annoying firefox pop up which keeps appearing on the screen asking me to put in my Primary Password. I had forgotten my original password so I reset it. The pop up appeared again and I put in the new password and it didn't sign me in or disappear. What is wrong, how can I get rid of this as it appears every time I try to get on a web page and it is VERY ANNOYING!

Hi, Why do I get this error message with firefox when I either click a link in an email or type in directly on a new tab (this happens on multiple websites, not just this one). I can then open the same website in Chrome with no problem? How do I fix this problem? I know I need to upgrade to windows 11 and have tried several times, but it never works. Thank you. Debbi

When looking for credentials (e.g., password) in Lockwise, is there a way to use a wildcard in the url?

I want to sign on to a financial institution called Fubar Bank. If I search my saved login information for the string fubar, it returns nothing. The problem is that the real url is secure.fubar.com . It seems that Lockwise searches only the leading characters.

Firefox was working fine up until about an hour ago. In the attached image, you can see the bookmarks toolbar, but everything above it is white. There's no tab. There's no menu (File, Edit, View, etc.). There's no URL bar/search bar, and no little X to close the window when I'm done.

It is not in full screen mode, although if I hit F11 twice the menu, etc. will miraculously appear.

I tried deleting the xulstore.json file as one post here suggested. I tried refreshing Firefox.

I have a Windows 10 computer running Firefox 79.0.

Did I click some weird keystroke combination? How can I make my screen look normal again?

I suddenly am unable to access Twitter on Firefox, either when I use my bookmark for Twitter or when I search for Twitter on Google and click on the link to the main Twitter homepage. Nothing happens with either case. The other browser I use (Safari) has no problems accessing Twitter.

Every couple of months I will start up my computer and find all my settings have changed and my Firefox add-ons are gone. I was not able to discern why but I made some changes in the configuration and got the text size back to what I wanted. This time it happened none of those configurations changed but I still had changed text size. I refreshed Firefox and found my add-ons immediately were reinstalled even though they were shown to be working when I checked my browser settings. One of the add-ons was Yahoo Mail ad blocker. I have used Yahoo Mail for years. Recently they have tried to make changes in my mail display to where I am being forced to go ad-free and upgrade to a mail subscription. After this most recent challenge to my computer setting, I am beginning to think Yahoo is disabling the Yahoo Ad Mail Blocker to get me to go to their subscription. Either that or Microsoft is challenging me to use their browser. It is like their is a war going on to win the internet. I miss the old Internet. Is there anything that can be done so my settings don't get hijacked?

Hello,

I recently purchased a monitor that I could hook up to my laptop when working from home, and yesterday after I connected the monitor I noticed that the scroll bar on the right side of the webpage was still there, but had gone completely black. If I click on it and drag my mouse, sometimes I randomly hit where the scroll bar is and it works, but I have no way of knowing where it is without guess and check. Also, the scroll bar does still show up on new tab pages and the firefox settings page. I was wondering if there's anyway I could either fix the problem or just stop displaying the scroll bar altogether?

Thanks
