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.

eBay displays only as raw HTML. 2nd time this year. Big pain. All other websites I use are OK. Running Mozilla on W7. eBay works fine on Bing. I don't like Bing; but at least there I can meet my buying/selling commitments without a lot of grief. Seems like eBay's techies have used some little feature in their coding that is incompatible with Mozilla and is a minor back burner issue that got patched once and has come back. Except eBay users are a big deal and this is about more than just entertainment. Ed Weldon;

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?

How do I get rid of this error message as it just hungs the firefox browser. Firefox used to worked before and not it is just as slow or worse than the old Internet Explorer. I did the refresh and it does give you a sort off cleaned up instance and then as time go through, its back again. And yes, Firefox is my default browser.

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.

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?

Hello all, I have been trying to download a video from YouTube. It runs for over an hour. When clicking on the grapes at the top RHS I get a load of options which I don't understand like wmv,mp4 etc. The times given go from a few Kb to 29Mb which is more realistic for what I want to download. I can't understand why you would only want to download a few Kb of a long video.

Of all the options given which one is the correct one to download what I am watching on the screen? I did get it to record for about 10 minutes then the whole computer just crashed out and shut down. Why? I have also downloaded the odd short video but there is no sound. Other times I get a download symbol in the downloads folder but it's empty and I can't delete it. To play videos I am using VLC.

I am not having much luck with this and I need help please. By the way, please keep replies basic as I am not a computer expert.

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.
