All of a sudden, I keep getting a small window that pops up and wants my Primary Password. I have changed it three times and the Firefox says the change took place each time. Then, the pop up comes and I fill in my password and it pops up again and again and again and again. How do I get rid of this? It's driving me nuts!!!

I would love to get a real answer to my question below.

Why did you remove this feature? Please see screenshot. Simple option to search any site using the selected highlighted word. In screenshot below I highlighted "scored".

The screenshot is from Palemoon. Yet this feature used to be in firefox.

Look forward to your answer.

I recently switched to Firefox and have been frustrated that videos and streams stutter and drop frames drastically when not the active window. I enjoy having videos and streams open when gaming and this doesn't allow me to do that. Some fixes that I have tried are:

widget.windows.window_occlusion_tracking.enabled to false layers.acceleration.force-enabled to true gfx.webrender.all set to true

My specs: i9-10900KF RTX 3070 16GB 4266mhz

Game in question is FFXIV in borderless fullscreen. I know that using exclusive fullscreen solves the issue, but I like being able to use my other monitor while playing.

I have a tracking app on macOS Monterey that is following me around

On Firefox settings I came cross some locations where I see Google Chrome like on page info about:home or Application Basics: Google Location Service Key and Google Safe browning Key. Also, on a link called Survey where there is Google forms to fill out. I don't use Google Chrome because of the issues Google Chrome creates when I go on my the websites. Why are these Google things in Firefox and is there a way to remove them?

I have Firefox 105.0.1 on Windows 10 Pro and I cannot import Logins and Passwords from a file. Even with the signon property to TRUE, the passwords just don't populate. Is there something else I should be doing, or is there a fix for this. I have quite a few users to migrate and creating Firefox accounts to sync passwords is not preferable with users who need a lot of hand-holding. Thanks!

I want to have access to the site that I visited for years, this year firefox decided to restrict all public from this site which just because its in another country and just because the owner does not have his identity revealed does not mean is dangerous. I have to use a different browser to visit that website which is a threat to no one, that site provides cam views all over the world, yes its insecure, yes they can monitor this and that, but the public visits it to watch the cams not to put passwords or personal information in. 5 years I've been with them and now you (firefox want to block them to the public) why? cause they're not based in USA and you do not know their location? I guess I will be making a new video about this and joining hundreds of others who are loosing site access to many sites just because you (firefox) cannot read their details.

After I updated my ff browser to the current version, certain websites have had their text all messed up. I first tried restarting the browser and then my computer. Next I tried to purge all cookies. I then tried to remove all add-ons and then purged cookies again, but the issue still persisted.

Firefox version: 105.0.1 (64bit)

OS: Mac Big Sur 11.6

Any ideas on why this is happening or how to fix?

I have been using sync from day one: best thing ever regarding my productivity. AFAIK, credentials get encrypted before sent to the FF cloud, using information derived from my password.

Short version: what happens when I change the Firefox account password?

Long version: I'm thinking of replacing my current password, with a very long one. If I do so, will there a re-upload of my data take place? Will my credentials on the cloud become harder to crack (assume that the new password is longer and more complex).

Ever since the last Firefox update cruising on Facebook is an outright NIGHTMARE. Videos lag. Page changes lag. Open messenger, LAG. Check notifications, lag!. Lag, lag, lag, lag. It was never like this before. I have cleared the cache, deleted cookies, checked for updates, and nothing works. What ever was done in that last "update" needs to be undone to fix it.

I've taken a number of steps that I've researched ranging from clearing cookies, to resetting firefox, to complete reinstallation of Firefox itself.

I've also ran a full diagnostic with my ISP and determined my router and internet are 100% functional. This just started happening out of nowhere roughly 3-4 days ago.

I have not installed any add ons or turned on any extentions. I've done nothing to customize my browser at all.

When I go to Youtube, either I can't log in or when I am logged in it says I am not connected to the internet. This has never happened to me before.

Please help.

Hello, ever since we moved endpoints from Firefox ESR 91.13 to 102.3, it has become impossible to play any media with Firefox.

No video will play in youtube, for instance (it just loads endlessly as if it would start, but it doesn't).

Can't use radio websites either. Anything with a "play" button (video or sound) does nothing.

This has been tested with a clean profile, a clean install, after allowing autoplay in the settings.

Is there any info on what exactly changed between ESR 91 and 102 that might explain this ? There has been no system change, If I reinstall 91 instead it works again as usual.

No issues anywhere else on the endpoints (Edge, Windows), this is on Windows 10 if it makes any difference.

Tanks for any help on this.
