I have this continuing request to update passwords and have seen a thread on this but have no duplicate passwords for any account.

The problem has another twist to it. There is a password set in the option that is not the one I have just used to sign in.The password is very long and repeatedly uses the text "padding ****"

Just wonder if anyone else has seen this?

Linux debian 8 / Firefox 68.9.0ESR Since Firefox crashed on me a couple months ago, all online videos play at excessive speed (at least 5x normal speed, probably faster). There is also no longer any sound, but that could be due to the speed of the playback (sound in all other programs work fine)?

I have rebooted my computer a couple times since then, and tried creating a brand new profile, but there is no change. I've been running this version of firefox for several months so that hasn't changed. I also had not applied any updates to my OS recently before this problem started happening, although I did try updating after the problem showed up... still no resolution. I assume the crash has nothing to do with this problem since a clean profile hasn't made a difference.

I'm stumped. There are tons of google results about videos playing too slow, but I've found nothing about videos playing at lightning speed. Checking youtube directly, playback speed is set to normal although setting it to 0.25 slows it down enough I can at least see what's happening. I just don't know what else to look for?

Firefox ESR crashes at watching videos with "alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed"

hello, i have a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB and Raspberry Pi OS installed. (2020-05-27-raspios-buster-armhf.zip)

when i use the stock Firefox ESR (installed via sudo apt install firefox-esr) and watch videos (e.g. on Youtube, Vimeo, ...), Firefox does crash some times. according about:crashes, i already have submitted about 60 crash reports.

but watching the reports one thing is missing. when i open firefox from the console i can see some output, that is not appearing in the reports.

... firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 3366 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead Firefox ESR crashes when playing videos on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian)

during watching videos in firefox there is more different output to see that seems to be harmless. but always and only this line is printed to console, just befor Firefox crashes: firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. so i assume this is the main reason, why Firefox crashes on my system.

any idea how i can get these issue fixed? at the moment when i want to watch videos reliable i am be forces to use the external VLC Player by copy the url to VLC - at least for Youtube videos. but i want to watch videos from other web pages as well and i prefer to watch videos in firefox directly.

FireFox ESR 68.11.0 - 64bit Windows 8.1

Start typing a URL in the address bar ... a search bar drops down automatically and begins searching. What is the real fix for this annoying and insecure behavior?

There are dozens if not hundreds of search posts on this topic, most are specific to a particular version of FireFox. Developers, I shudder every time I update the program because I know I will be spending hours or days on a new configuration. Apparently, developers have cleverly eliminated the settings that disable this feature.

This drop-down search bar is annoying and unnecessary. A child might find it useful. Simply put, the user should be able to turn it on or off in the "Options" section. We don't like playing with your about.config settings, or adding code. If I type an address in the URL bar, I do not want the URL searched arbitrarily. Nor do I want to see a new pop-up bar. Please make the use of these "features" optional.

Please create a new general information topic "Removing the automatic URL search" and put this topic to rest once and for all. This is an excellent argument for a paid version of FireFox. I would gladly pay for a clean program rather than waste my time tweaking every single new version.

Thank you!

Hi. I'm a user of OpenVPN which uses TAP (a virtual network adapter) to establish VPN connections. Sometimes I need to switch VPN on/off when browsing websites, but I didn't find options like "select a network adapter to use" within Firefox. Currently the only solution is to connect/disconnect OpenVPN to switch VPN on/off, but it's quite inconvenient for me.

I've tried searching for add-ons about this, but a possible one named "FoxyProxy" has dropped this feature recently because of the changes about Firefox API, so I think my problem can be no longer solved by add-ons.

Any solutions to this? Can I have this feature provided by Firefox with updates if there isn't any workaround for now?

I received a FireFox update today and lost all of my bookmarks. I tried to sign into Firefox Sync using my work email and I couldn't remember my password. I tried to reset it and when I get to the screen to enter the new password, I get a warning that says Undeliverable Email. I've tried multiple times to reset it and no luck. Any ideas on how this can be resolved?

I've installed CentOS 8, but I have a niggle.

I have two Firefox windows open: one on my left screen, one on my right screen.

I have VLC playing video on my left screen.

I would like to use the Firefox window on my right screen without it bringing the Firefox window to the front on my left screen, thus covering VLC.

Both Firefox windows act independently on Windows 10, I would like this behaviour in CentOS. Is there an option for this?

Thank you

I am using Multi-Account Containers, and am unclear on how it interacts with the other cookie and storage management features of the browser. If I clear cookies from Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data, does that clear all cookies in all containers, or just in "No Container"? Is there a way to delete/manage cookies within just a single container? Is there a way to delete/manage cookies for just "No Container"? Is there a plugin to help with this, or a manual means of editing cookies (editing text file or sqlite database)?
