Just recently Firefox started to display a "Loading..." message in the middle of every page I go to in Breitbart.com (doesn't happen in any other website).

It appears about 2 seconds AFTER the page loads or press F5. The background goes dark suggesting it's modal. It lasts for about 1 second and then goes away and everything appears normal.

I've been told this is a Cloudflare anti-DDoS CDN protocol issue, but I'm not so sure of that.

I've started up in Clean Mode and get the same behavior.

TIA

When Picture-In-Picture mode first release, the size of the video was respective to the video's resolution, the window would increase in size the large the resolution and decrease the smaller. This allowed the window to be customizable in size. Now, for me at least, every picture-in-picture video is a tiny window. Is there a way to tweak and increase the size of the video like before?

When I started firefox today, there was a new folder added to my bookmarks toolbar - "Other Bookmarks". It was never there before and I want to remove it. In the bookmarks menu itself I have the "Bookmarks Toolbar" where I put the stuff I want to access often, and "Other Bookmarks" where I put other stuff I don't need as much. I don't see a reason why the "Other Bookmarks" should take up space on the bar.

Mozilla-provided font (I think) is just annoying/hard to read

I've read some complaints about the font that FF desktop uses on some websites. I'm seeing a very annoying font with some letters thicker (almost bold) and other letters thin. This occurs, for example, on the mozilla.org website and when FF is displaying a PDF.

I have "allow pages to choose their own fonts" checked, and I am not using hardware acceleration.

I went into the developer console and turned off the Mozilla-supplied font for a support webpage, and it then used something like a Times New Roman, but it was uniform in letter thickness.

I have attached screen snips.

If I display the same page using Chrome, the font looks great, so I don't know exactly what the problem is, but it's clearly a FF problem.

Notice in Chrome that the word "garbled" is in bold, and it does not appear in bold in either of the FF font examples.

Firefox won't stay downloaded to my computer. I am having to download it multiple times, especially if my computer has updates.

On a separate note, when it does actually stay on my computer over night, it never keeps me signed in to my Firefox account. I have to log in to it daily to have my bookmarks and passwords.

Also, it never remembers the theme I have picked for it. I would love some advice on how to fix this.

I've read through a ton of articles, and I can't seem to find a fix.

When I go to https://www.sz-shop.de/ostern, FF tells me that there is a risk

"Warnung: Mögliches Sicherheitsrisiko erkannt ... Am wahrscheinlichsten wird das Problem durch die Website verursacht und Sie können nichts dagegen tun. Sie können den Website-Administrator über das Problem benachrichtigen."

That is what I did. I called that shop and told about that warning. The lady on the phone also went to the address, but she did NOT see that warning. She confirmed that her PC was OUTSIDE of sz-shop.de like mine.

So the problem is a potentially wrong warning? Or how can we explain that I see a warning and other people do not see it?

On 84.0.2 on OSx.

Firefox will offer to save usernames and passwords, but then does not remember them in the future. Attempting to import existing data from another browser into Lockwise prompts a request to set a primary password first. Attempting to set a primary password (which is currently not set), yields the error message "Unable to change primary password."
