Since the last update [76.0 (64-bit)], whenever I enter a fullscreen mode in any media player on a website (e.g. Youtube) I can no longer Alt-tab normally, even if I close the fullscreen. Instead it takes 3 times to switch to another window - first press of the Alt-tab combination causes Firefox to lose focus but remain on top, 2nd press returns focus onto Firefox and then the 3rd one actually switches to another window.

This also occurs when simply switching to fullscreen on any other website as well (by pressing F11).

This also causes any newly open windows to be displayed under the Firefox window.

Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Esc minimizes the window normally and the issue does not occur then, however, it occurs again whenever I go fullscreen.

The problem occurs also in the Safe mode. Antivirus did not find any issues, so I don't believe the cause to be external.

OS is Windows 10 Home, 64-bit.

Suddenly every time I want to use Outlook, E-bay or Facebook, I have to put in a password even though with Outlook there is a 'save password' box which I have clicked. This is a recent problem. I am using Windows 10. People have suggested clearing cookies and re-starting the computer - both of which I have done without success. Any help welcome but I am a senior with limited computer skills so please make the suggestions simple! Thanks.

When downloading pdf, html and other files I recently started getting an "Executable files may contain viruses or other malicious code" warning. This is annoying and definitely nothing I didn't know. Besides, many of these files were written by me, so this simply represents an additional annoyance in my workflow. How do I permanently disable this behavior?

Morning, every time when I click on a link on a website which should open a pdf document, firefox start opening several (infinite) new tabs with the document. Even if I close Firefox completely the process will continue if i open Firefox again. This can only be stopped when I smash the Strg+W Puttons to close all the Tabs faster then they are opening.

I hope someone can help me with this. It is really annoying when it happens.

Thanks and best regards.

Hi,

I only want to mention that Firefox hangs on download, if I want to download VMWare Player for Windows from https://my.vmware.com/de/web/vmware/free#desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_workstation_player/15_0|PLAYER-1555|product_downloads

After clicking the button for the download destination nothing happens and reacts anymore and I have to kill Firefox. The dialog for choosing the download destination won't be opened. (Winodws 8.1 Home 64bit)

IE 11 works well.
