I use & want to continue using Firefox Password Manager but, since updating to Version 90.0.2 (64Bit), The "Please enter your primary password" window keeps opening about every 15 minutes (I have not timed it). I have already entered my primary password & used the auto login with several webpages. Then the login window will popup & I will have to re-enter the password before I can use the features. I am running Windows 10, with the latest updates installed.

When I restarted Firefox after a freeze, I did NOT get the familiar message that lets me choose to restore all windows. When opened, Firefox showed only ONE window (the one I was working in when it froze up). The Firefox menu (upper right corner) does NOT display a Restore Previous Session option. It's as if all the windows open in my last session never existed. Is there any way I can still reopen them now?

Every time I switch on my laptop, I found that it was heating up without opening anything. I open the task manager and I see that Firefox is running and using a huge amount of the CPU and apparently consuming a lot of the battery as well. Firefox is not there in my startup list. I have reinstalled and installed multiple times. I have tried changing toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart to false. I have tried changing browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false.

If I do open Firefox now, without ending the task that is already running, and then close it later, it is still running in the background. Only way to stop this task running is to end task and I have to do it every time I switch on my Laptop.

I hope I have described the problem well, please let me know what other details I can provide. I am putting a screenshot of the task running as well. Thanks in advance

Hello,


I use web.de and gmx.de.

The form data I had always entered were suggested to me via drop down. This is still the case with web.de, but not with gmx.


In the Firefox settings I agreed to fill in the login information automatically, but it doesn't help. The following are checked:

Asking whether to save login credentials and passwords for websites

- Fill in login details and passwords automatically

- Generate and suggest strong passwords


In the chronicle I chose "create".

A change to "user-defined" does not change anything.

The following are checked:

Save visited pages and download history

Save entered search terms and form data


The point "Forms & automatic filling", which is often mentioned on the web, does not exist for me under "Data protection & security".


I would really appreciate any help.


Many greetings

Juliengel

I wrote a message in GAB chat but just as I sent it I lost internet . The message is gone but not delivered. I searched online how to recover and followed instructions to do this. type or paste about:cache in the address bar and press Enter. Under disk click the link to List cache entries. This may take a long time.

Eventually you should see a list that lets you find the URL you're trying to decode. If you click it, Firefox should show the content there and list the compression type, which most often will be:

Content-Encoding: gzip

In that case, if you save the encoded content to a new file with a .gz extension you should be able to decompress it using your favorites ZIP utility. Of course, finding the beginning and end of the content may not be intuitive. I don't know whether the cache entry info page is helpful or not.

    The problem is I have no idea which item in the vast list is on GAB because they all say google and Firefox thanks for any advice and please tell Firefox we are extremely disappointed that they teamed up with commie Google we can no longer download you tube videos unless we go through chrome and the downloader they offer uses 3 time as much data in the same format as the down loaders we were able to use

I just upgraded to Windows 10 today and when I entered a website address, all I get a blank website. Also: sometimes when I opened Firefox my bookmarks which I installed from my Windows 8 failed to show up. The section where it says to "Sign In", nothing happened when I click on it. It won't display the e-mail address where I synced my bookmarks before I switched computers.

Phone is dead so notification code option is off. (which didn't always work in the past, eg when i forgot a password - which i think isn't the case now) I don't want to go downstairs and turn on my phone, for the principle of it. Clicked 'i cannot use my phone' sereval times during mutiple attempts to find other ways to log in . Google says i have to use my phone Did they change policies? Could it be that someone hacked my account, fb also notified 'suspicious login attempts but they were so recent (one min ago) that it must have been me.

Okay, so just as I have stated in the subject, this is my direct experience at this time. I've found on the forum people having trouble saving .html, but those were other issues unrelated to Firefox. I cannot find specific reports relating to my issue. To those, if you see this, who saved your web pages to .html (only or complete), did you open those files to check that you could read them? The unreliability of browsers in the past leads me to distrust this expectation that saved data is done and preserved without checking/validating.

Here is what I did. I saved a page (and for sake of accuracy and precision, it was search results from duckduckgo.com) to an .htm file. (Again, for sake of accuracy, I'll insert here that Windows Save As dialog box provides the "Save as type:" options list, which are: "Text Files", "Web Page, complete", and "Web Page, HTML only".) I chose "Web Page, HTML only"; now, while it says "HTML", Firefox creates the default extension of ".htm", so this is the extension used; and I simply used the default filename, no changes. Then, I simply went to my "Recent Items" menu in Start menu and opened the just saved file. It opens to a blank page, except for a very small text box with my search query in it and two little tiny buttons next to it; the content of the page is not displayed. (And, after post analysis, the file size was 7kb, which indicates that it did not really save all the data of the page content.) I then tried opening the file on a different computer with Firefox - same result. I also opened the same file with Chrome - same result. At least there is consistency here. Therefore, the conclusion must be that Firefox is not saving correctly.

There is no help to be given in this case, as I have done nothing wrong. I have done exactly as instructed by and to others in other forum posts and as described in other help pages on how to save web pages to a file. Everyone talks about the actions of how to do; but not about the results of reading saved output.

So, I make the post in hopes that this get to the developers to fix this problem. If this does not happen on all computers or in all situations (for all web pages) ... well, I think it still lies with Mozilla to fix it, because here is one case where it positively does not work! If my situation is unique, I do not know why ... and if it works for others (to save from duckduckgo) then I don't know why ... again, not for me to figure out; just take it as fact, this action of saving web pages in Firefox does not always work.

Thanks.

PS - I'm using SingleFile as an alternative work around (but I don't see why the "Save As" should not have worked perfectly for all of web browser history).

In Firefox, I select DuckDuckGo as default Browser. I type the word "news" and in the address bar it automatically adds google which I don't want. Even when I type in the Firefox address bar, the address always converts to news.google.com. I have to manually select DuckDuckGo as the news browser. How do I stop Goggle from redirecting my search to its news address?

Previously inspecting the page info (Ctrl + I) and going to the media tab, I could select an image and download it in its original file size. This has changed to where the image is now downsized, even when opening the direct link in a new tab. The image comes out squished and distorted.

Is there a fix for this? I've tried clearing all cookies & cache which has worked in the past but not anymore.
