Never had this happen so it freaks me out a little. I was making a purchase on ebay and my username and password didn't come up automatically as they always to. I went to my online email and the same thing. I was afraid to log in to anything thinking that maybe someone had hacked firefox or something and had set something up to get my information. Or does this happen sometimes and there is nothing to it? Or did some link mess up all of a sudden and it can be fixed? If so, how? Or do I just have to re-log in to everything and have it save them all over again? Hope this isn't to confusing but I'd appreciate any help. thanks

This is a weird one. I would appreciate help. Please read carefully before responding....I am not a newb

Connected my new XPS laptop for the first time to my monitor. Everything looks fine (Windows 10, Chrome, other programs) EXCEPT for Firefox. In Firefox, all the text looks grainy, obviously not right. I disabled all my extensions, REFRESHED/RESET the browser, with no improvement.

But when I opened Firefox's troubleshooting mode, the browser immediately improved, became crystal clear. Also, when I took a screenshot to post here, the screenshot of the text appeared crystal clear as well. So it's definitely not the monitor.

Again, I've refreshed Firefox, and turned off all my extensions. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Still seeing grainy text. Troubleshoot mode says it turns off "extensions, themes, and custom settings" --what else does it turn off?

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks, s.

Can I trust the permissions section of an extension? If Firefox says an extension only has access to a single website, can I trust it or can an extension installed from the official website go rogue anytime and have access to any site I go to? I mainly use Firefox but I don't have the confidence to install so many add-ons because there's no indication that it's currently accessing the site or not. about:performance don't always tell the whole story and a working extension can not show itself there.

Other browsers can set which site has an extension can have access to. You also have a clear indication that it's currently ON by hovering at the extension icon where a "Has access to this site" message will appear. Hope we can have something like that in Firefox soon.

My computer crashed and when I openend firefox, all my tabs were gone, about 140, it was impossible to open recently closed tabs or previous session. I found about 20 files that might contain all the tabs but none of them are opened properly in the scrounger at https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html When I try to export it uncompressed, i get the message that the context of the box does not look like json, that's true because the box is empty after opening all 20 files. Even though one file even is 1.16mb. Does anyone has other advice on at least getting the url's from the file? You would expect at least one file to work right?

So on every computer (mac, GNU/Linux, Windows - doesn't matter) I get this annoying notification that takes control of keyboard input after each reboot.

Can we maybe add a show once option or similar, in my case I use Tabliss which could also be the culprit -- but it seems to me disabling this notification should be an option or even better, have it actually show once.

Something happened to Firefox over the weekend-- update or otherwise. Lost all my tabs. Had to uninstall and reinstall. Re-do all my settings. Re-set all my pinned tabs for work. Now I can't get into Asana, a project management tool I use for work daily and have used for years, because of the below security message. I've tried everything I can think of but can't get Firefox to open Asana.

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to app.asana.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

app.asana.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

When using the "Checkout with PayPal" button on websites the PayPal popup window appears however it's impossible to progress to the checkout. When I then use Edge and do my purchase through there, the PayPal popup window allows me to enter my info and then proceed to PayPal with no problem at all.

I have added paypal.com into exclusions for 'Block pop-up windows' and Enhanced Tracking Protection

But, I want to be able to use Firefox! I do not want to be forced into having to use Edge for purchase payments using PayPal. I am not a techie and would like a simple solution w/o having to get into modifying any programming files. S.O.S.
