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.

How do I selectively open these links in background tabs?

I am using "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" so some links (ones that normally open in new windows) open in tabs in the background instead of immediately getting focus. I am using this functionality for purposes of one specific website. Unfortunately, I do not like this behavior to happen on all websites. I tried turning "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" off and then control+clicking and middle clicking on the links, but this is not working to open them in the background. Is there any other way I can turn off "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" but selectively open the links I am using in the background? Perhaps there is a button other than 'control' I can hold while clicking or there is an extension?

Hi, all. I have a problem accesing last item on the tabs list. Firefox makes the list as high as the screen height, not accounting height of taskbar. As a result, I cannot use the last item of this list.

Is there any setting to adjust the height of the list?

Firefox keeps asking me for master password. It doesn't matter if I type my password in, it reappears over and over and over and over and over. It's become impossible to proceed because that popup prevents any further action on the browser. If I follow the instructions about unselecting "Use a master password", it asks me to ... enter the current password. I do, and the the OK button is grayed out and unavailable.

I'm not using either of the two virus programs you mention (ESET & some other). This is driving me batshit.

Please help resolve this. I'm using v. 79.0 (64-bit) on Windows 7.

Thank you.

Firefox slow and choppy for no discernable reason

Using Firefox 79.0 on Windows 7 (I know, I'm migrating soon) and I'm running into the problem of Firefox being slow to respond and "hanging" for about ten seconds. Resource Monitor indicates that Firefox is using ~60% of physical memory despite only having 12 tabs (10 of them pinned) open. I have 13 extensions installed but the majority of them aren't in regular use. I have 36G of RAM installed.

This seems to start happening if Firefox has been open for a while, even if it isn't being used. I've even started using OneTap to dump saved tabs down and reduce the load but this doesn't seem to help. Closing Firefox down entirely and re-opening it does fix it for a time but it becomes a problem again after not too much longer.

Would appreciate some input.

Firefox not loading https pages, Internet Explorer 7 will load http but not https pages using xp sp3 ( I know!) I have reinstalled xp from disk etc thinking it was malware but problem remains and although IE can load any http pages it cannot load any https. I checked the certificate store and there are certificates dated up to 2028. Any ideas welcome

Have set duckduckgo as default search engine but search just returns duckduckgo main page, not keyword search results when keywords are typed in search bar and hit search. If I revert to bing it shows results as usual. Change back to duckduck and it reverts to just showing duckduck main page again. Any suggestions
