a few days ago, i encountered this weird symbol on my toolbar (check image). it basically looked like a blue keyhole, and this was the first time i encountered something like it, so i ran a gamut of virus scans from many different tools to see if it was a PUP virus or whatever, but nothing came up as a hit. I was puzzled on WHAT it was, but after i shut my browser down and rebooted it, the blue keyhole symbol vanished

so.....wat was dat?

As of January 2024, I am constantly being asked for a Primary Password when I use the Firefox browser. I do not believe I ever set a Primary Password or Master Password with Firefox, and I have been using Firefox for many years. When I go to the Settings page, it says to confirm my current Primary Password in order to change it. But I need to know my current password to do that. I also unchecked Primary Password, and got a pop-up that said if I remove my Primary Password my information will not be protected if my computer is compromised. Obviously, I don't want that to happen. Is it possible I am being asked for a Primary Password because I am using a VPN? Please advise on how to resolve this problem. I can't change my password, and I can't confirm ever setting one so I am concerned. Thank you.

For ages I've had my tabs automatically restored when opening Firefox. But as of the last few days it won't. The old links are saved so I can restore them one by one through history but that's not automatic. And if I click on restoration in History it will bring up a whole bunch of old tabs not neccessarily from the last session.

I'm on the same computer as I've been for over a year, so I don't know what what the problem is. I've searched on it and tried to re-check the box for this function. But it won't apply...

Firefox crashed hard on me.

When I got it back it, all the add-on's were disabled, my bookmarks were missing, and my preferences destroyed.

So I need to delete Google as my default search engine and restore Yahoo as my preferred engine.

The button to add new search engine is missing.

Without using an add-on, how am I supposed to restore my search engine?

Company Logos in Google SERP Have a Gradient applied to them?

Hello, Why does Firefox (121.0.1 (64-bit) macOS 14.2.1 anyways) apply a gradient color overlay to the Business Logos in Google SERPs?

I.e., typically the website's Favicon is pulled or an image written into Schema data to display the company logo next to the search result excerpt. But lately, and apparently only in FF, the logos are discolored by some kind of overlay?

Please see attached comparison between Chrome and FF. Chrome displays the logos unaltered, and FF displays them with this crazy obnoxious overlay/ color correction.

As far as I can tell, this is coming from FF as I don't see it in any other browsers/ devices. Chrome, FF Developer Edition, MS Edge, and Safari do not alter the logo colors.

Is there anyway to request the Mozilla FF stop doing this? I can't possibly begin to imagine how this is helpful in anyway to users... but of course I'm open to hearing any logic behind this decision, if in fact this is coming from FF.

Thank you all for your time and help!

Getting to www.costco.ca impossible during past few days - disabling tracking does nothing! Tried relaxing most security and tracking settings, still no results. MS Edge works just fine, like Firefox used to until now. Guess it's time to switch if no other option.
