In my "saved addresses" list under the Privacy and Security section of Firefox Settings, there are two addresses of people that have never used my computer. One formerly went to my school, and the other is a stranger. I can think of no way that they could have had access to my account at any time. Are there any other possible explanations for this?

Maybe sometime in the past week or so, I began noticing an issue on the New York Times website. I am able to load most articles there normally, but some, marked with a 'live' button for certain types of rapidly updated topics (e.g. election day vote updates or the like) won't load. https://www.nytimes.com/live/2021/11/02/us/election-news?action=click&pgtype=Article&state=default&module=styln-elections-2020®ion=TOP_BANNER&context=election_recirc This is an example of such a page. I click them and just get white space. I normally use a private browser tab for all webpages but it still doesn't load if I use the normal page rather than an in-private window. I would appreciate any help. Let me know if there is any other information I can provide to help people help me. I may need to be walked through some suggestions. I am using version 94 on Linux Mint as of today, and up until today was using whatever the immediately previous version available for Mint was. The described behavior happened on both versions, if that is relevant.

When visiting a website and launching a video it plays fine. When I decide that I have watched enough and close the video window it moves to the side and continues to play. I have closed the video because I don't want to see or hear it any longer. This very annoying and I can't figure out how to prevent this from happening. Does anyone know how to disable this annoying behaviour? Firefox 94.0.1 64 bit Windows 10 Pro

Dear Community,

I recently updated Firefox on my Gentoo system (Window Manager is Ratpoison). I had a shortcut <Ratpoison escape key>-F to open firefox. Before the update I used to press this combination again and another FF window comes up without any problems. Thus, I had 5-6 running FF windows on a normal working day, each with several tabs in it.

Since the update, when I use the same method, no new window appears but after a few seconds the message window comes up saying that the running instance is not responding and that FF could not be started. I know the problem with concurrent access of the profile. But, there was (and should be) the functionality that FF connects to a running instance and opens a new window in it. Unfortunately, I do not know how this works programmatically. I already installed dbus (and yes, I also started the dbus daemon) to ensure that this is not the reason - I usually do not use dbus in my setup.

Is there a way to reliably trigger the running instance to open a new window from my window manager? How does this "connection to a running instance" usually works? Why is it not working? What can I do to use it, are there any requirements needed?

Thank you very much for your effort to help me out.

Kind regards - M4tze

After a crash and reboot where I lost my bookmarks, I discovered a "file" of them in a folder I had created for another purpose on my desktop. I don't know how they got there! file:///C:/Users/Alan/OneDrive/Desktop/MECHANICS/bookmarks.html Perhaps saved in OneDrive and migrated somehow during reboot? Anyway, is there a way to transfer these into my newly downloaded Firefox browser? Thanks!

So far i asked a handful questions here. Some are being replied while others are ignored. How do i get more attention on my questions and how is determined if they are important or not? support.mozilla.org behaves in a wired way here, it's not like a Forum. Im certain admins have full sight over all topics here while a normal user like me, feels pretty lost.

Why do some questions show the amount of views while others dont? -See attached screenshots https://i.postimg.cc/QtyPZ0Nh/1.png https://i.postimg.cc/q7QSjp9t/2.png
