When being prompt for the primary password, I noticed that I can rapidly and endlessly type random combinations and press enter. There seems to never be any delay between wrong entering of passwords. So it seems that even the most primitive application that would try all possible combinations rapidly, will break the password in few hours for the most. This does not even require any knowledge in hacking. Is this correct or am I missing something? If that is the case, then primary password is only worth when keeping the computer unattended for no more than few minutes.

Whenever I visit Tesco website for online shopping the pages get progressively slower to the point where I get a message in a yellow banner which reads words to the effect of: 'A web page is slowing down your computer. What do you want to do?' It then gives the option of clicking on a tab to either 'stop this' or something else which I no longer recall. This message doesn't stay there long and on the times where I have managed to click on the tab 'stop this' it has no effect whatsoever. I looked up this problem by typing something about it into a google search space and came across information which says that it is an apparently known problem with Firefox. I cannot account for the testament of this answer though. I don't know who wrote it. Is this true? Is there anything I, or you, can do about this problem regardless of whether or not this is true? When this happens my computer sounds like it is about to launch itself into space and there is a distinct and lengthy lag between entering information and the website responding. It can take over a minute to move from one action to the next. eg. scrolling the page up to view the next items on the page. I really would be forever grateful if you could identify the problem and come up with a solution for this. Thank you for giving this your attention. Helen Gray.

So, I was trying to head to Bing for reasons I will not disclose due to embarrassment. So I went to open it from google and was given the Error:

 ''''''''The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.''''''''

So I cleared cookies and site data, nothing still got the error. I tried checking my PC for malware as stupid as it sounds, I just didn't wanna be asked to do it. Spic and Span. I even checked my protection settings which FOR SOME REASON turned themselves back on. I turned those off and still, no dice.

Any help would be appreciated

Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

I can't get Firefox to show the bookmark editor. I thought i may have accidentally manually disabled it for new bookmarks, but when i tried to access it on an existing bookmark, it wouldn't come up. The star button still has an "Edit this bookmark (Ctrl+D)" tooltip, but does nothing when clicked. Ctrl+D does nothing further on an existing bookmark. I went into about:config, and the browser.bookmarks.editDialog.showForNewBookmarks option was set to true. I went ahead and toggled it off and on again to see if it would refresh or something, to no effect. Ultimately, i guess that's beside the point, as i can't even bring it up for existing bookmarks.Any suggestions, beside going in and manually shuffling each new bookmark into a folder from the library?

When I visit "elofootball.com" with Firefox, "Atlético" is shown as "Atl�tico". When the page is not yet completely loaded Atlético is shown correctly for a brief moment (first screenshot without country flags). After the flags are displayed "Atlético" becomes "Atl�tico" (second screenshot with country flags). So it doesn't seem like the characters themselves aren't supported by the browser because Firefox can display them, just not once the flags are displayed as well.

Edge and Chrome do not have this problem, they just show the page like you'd expect without the � in the place of characters with accents. Any idea what might be causing this and can it be fixed?

Is it possible to have a default container? When I open a site in a container, if I then use the open window to go to a URL that I have not assigned a container to, i would like this new site to open in a "default" container. I believe the Facebook container works like this, it only allows Facebook related sites to be opened in that container any other sites are open in a new window/tab. An example, if i open a bank URL in a "Banking" container, log off and click on another unrelated bookmark (say Mozilla help), It would be nice if it opened in a separate container I had assigned to be the default container.

I am older and use the zoom function on many web pages. After this last update the Zoom function seems to be broken. I Zoom to 133% for a more comfortable read on a news site (Guardian)... go into the article and have to zoom again. Go back to the home page and it is fine until it finishes reloading and it snaps back to original size. Have to zoom again. None of these zoom setting remain consistantly. This has only become an issue since I restarted Firefox to install the last update.
