Hi Like a previous user I too have in the last few months noticed issues because of the MASTER PASSWORD prompt Box being very slow to appear.

I have No problems in using it, neither I have I forgot my master password, my issue is the speed its taking to prompt for it, when I don't even intend to open a website that its holding login details for?

Example: When I am typing some info into the search box I very often find password prompt has picked up some of my search text instead of the search box, because I am looking at the keyboard not the screen I don't notice till its grabbed half my search question.

I don't like to keep the browser open all the time, only when I need to search Google. So each time I open it Its taking between 5 and 10 seconds before the password Box prompt pops in, even though I don't need it too?

The cache is automatically set to clear on browser close, I don't believe its PC speed related as Its a I7 Processor and everything is fine speed-wise.

Any thoughts as to how I can get it to respond only when I request a page/site with relevant details stored. Thanks Baz

I have Firefox 78.0.2 x64 on Windows 10, latest updates. If I restore down my Firefox application window, everything functions fine. However, when I maximize the window, the top inch or more of the Firefox application turns completely white and all controls disappear. Pressing F11 makes the web page zoom bigger (hiding address bar, favorites, status bar, etc.), then pressing F11 again makes them appear. Has anyone else had this issue? Is this a bug, or a graphics card issue?

I have run Firefox in Safe Mode, and I still get the crashes, often on a Checkout page after getting an order together. My software is updated to the latest versions available, and I have kept my security up to date. If we cannot find a fix to stop all this crashing, I'll have to give up on Firefox as being highly unreliable. Since I am totally blind, RELIABILITY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME!

Firefox will periodically broken at any time of day, in the middle of a work emergency, because it performed an update in the background. I am *not* looking to disable updates, which is all I can find information on. I still want the ability to install them when they're available or when I start or exit firefox, or whenever it might be. But I need to be able to have control the "feature" of Firefox just randomly and unpredictably crashing during the workday. How do I disable or workaround this feature?

I clicled on the link, and now I have lost 7 YEARS of login paswords!!!!! Who thinks up the code behind these "helpful" hints? Can you remember a pasword that you created 7 years ago? Really, really upset user.

Why is Firefox 78 writing to disk constantly? Even when the browser is idle, the hard drive light on my computer blinks non-stop, and I can hear the constant noise coming from the hard drive. The problem is with the browser because the Processor Explorer (available from Microsoft) shows Firefox as doing the constant disk activity, and hard drive stops making noise when the browser is closed.

So, in a nutshell:

  • as of a few weeks ago, I can read, but not edit Confluence pages from Firefox on one laptop (the page content does not load for editing, it gets stuck "Connecting...")
  • starting the browser in "safe mode" does not help
  • editing from a private tab for some reason works (!?)
  • it works perfectly on another laptop (both Ubuntu 18.04, latest Firefox)

I'm hesitant to try "refresh browser" because I'd lose quite a bit of historic data.

Any suggestions on how to get to the bottom of this?

every time i start firefox it launches 7 versions of it , it locks up and is not reliable, this just recently started occurring.

I went to programs and settings for windows 10 and removed Mozilla , I the went to %appdata% and removed all directories that were named moziilla.

I then empty the trash can , and rebooted.

I then re-installed the latest version from the web site for x64 ( version 78.0.2 64 bit) and have the same issue. I go to websites and they lock up for 2 - 5 minutes , uses another browser and go to the same web sites and have no issues, happens when I go to google.com,microsoft.com etc...

I do not have this issue when I use other browsers

Any Ideas ?

So since a couple of weeks I have this problem again.

I am prompted with a master password prompt randomly, not when I'm starting up or loading a page with a saved login.

I watch a Youtube video and 10 minutes in suddenly PASSWORD PROMPT. Super annoying.

And I'm NOT using SYNC.

One phenomenon to notice is during the same time frame, I was greeted with an authentification prompt on startup by a website I had in an inactive tab (I automatically load the last session with only loading the latest tab). But I closed that tab and still have the password manager problem.
