why do I get multiple parentbuildID processors running in one session? It makes me worry (on this windows 7 machine)

I understand childID1 and up. On release 94, the parentbuildID numeric values are the same. Change my 'WHY' to just "Is this normal and OK?"

I installed firefox on a new computer and my firefox account has been reset. Why I think this? I had 2FA enabled on my account and now I do not, and all my sync data is not there anymore.

I got a couple different errors when trying to log in which ended up with me eventually resetting my password which apparently reset my whole account?

Any idea what could have happened?

This is in FF 94

I use Flightradar24 and recently when I AM ON THE Application and Highlight the chosen aircraft then Click-on "3D View" Firefox quits, every time. This is only a recent (one week) problem and is unconnected with MACOS ? Can anybody help?

I upgraded my MacBook Pro (Intel) to Monterey 12.0.1 and now Firefox 94.1 will not access the internet - no error messages, just hangs. I have re-installed Firefox and Monterey but no change. Meanwhile Chrome works perfectly.

Any ideas?

So today, November 5, 2021, I did the Firefox update and it has changed all my options in the Setting to everything Firefox. Horrible!! I want my homescreen to be www.bing.com, yet when I go into Settings there is NO WAY to get the damn check mark off the "Always check to see if Firefox is your default browser." At the top of the damn Settings - General page there is also a system warning stating "Your browser is being managed by your organization" What organization?!!!!!! I am using my personal laptop, so there is no "organization" set up NOR HAVE I EVER GIVEN ANYONE ASSOCIATED AT FIREFOX TO ACT AS MY PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE.

Who is the IDIOT that is FORCING everyone else to only use Firefox as a default search engine! Who is just screaming "I am a dictator and I need to be slapped!" Fix this issue and SOMEONE AT FIREFOX better may damn sure that someone is not hijacking my computer or anyone else's personal computer!

I will notify every damn new media organization if that damn "...being managed by your organization" is NOT removed immediately! Firefox needs to vet people better so no one is acting like some damn self-appointed "MASTER OF ALL" organization!

Popups are driving me crazy, despite popup blocking being turned on. I tried with Apple support, but they got so far and quit, saying Firefox isn't their app and therefore, my problem isn't their problem. I haven't a clue what to do. The last thing Apple said was to eliminate Firefox or clear all history and that may eliminate the problem; of course it would eliminate all my passwords, too, a non-starter, a take on we had to destroy the village in order to save it. It comes from one source: via2.verifyrobot.info The enticements range from malware on your computer, to sex for sale, to turn on your anti-virus, to money-making schemes. I'll attach a screen shot with a variety of these (note: I tried, but the screen shot is too large).

Is there no way to get rid of this infestation? I'm not a computer scientist, and the articles that are offered to solve such problems might as well be written in Sanskrit. Help, please.
