Since a couple of weeks my Firefox browser for Windows 10 64bit has issues. Last update 90.0.2 did not work either,and the issues is still there.

Internet is extremly slow,some sites will not open and i cant logg in to Facebook.

Under settings,i have tried different settings. Right now i have the standard setting. Under Help,i have tried to restore,diagnos and clean catch and restart,but it has not solved the issue.

What could be causing these issues? Do i have to do some special settings or do i have to add some Add-ons/Extensions in order to have Firefox work normal again?

I'm gettin' worried about some privacy issues and I'm not sure if the behaviour I want in a browser exists on Firefox.

Right now I'm using Firefox, it remembers my session and the sites I'm logged in, doesn't remember history. I have my Firefox account connected, my bookmark toolbar open, and I use BitWarden to store my passwords.

When I sign-out of Firefox, it doesn't delete the bookmarks.

I actually stopped using the sync function because I thought it was secure to open my account on my phone, but when I log out of my account, all the bookmarks remain there, which kinda defeats the purpose.

Is there a way to have a sort of "nuke it" button?

I want to be able to store ALL my data (session, bookmarks, logins) behind ONE password, and have them disappear when I log out.

I'm just a regular user but I think it's weird that Firefox doesn't do this. It's as if my e-mails remained visible when I log out of my Outlook account.

I need to reorder Firefox windows on the taskbar badly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also it would be useful to have custom titles. Both things should persists after PC restart. I tried couple programs, but they don't work. Devs said: position of Firefox window on the taskbar is store in Firefox and their program has no way of remembering that! Also windows get randomly shuffled each time, it is impossible to use like this. It takes me forever to find right window. It is annoying the hell out of me. How Firefox dev team doesn't fix something that basic??? This is so stupid...

Please tell me there is some solution...

I know this is an old issue. I'm getting it now, FF 90.0.2 64-bit, Windows 10 Pro N, Build 19041.vb_release.191206-1406. System updated. Not very often it starts playing for a fraction of a second. Videos and GIFs everywhere else (as far as places I normally go) plays as it should. Troubleshoot mode didn't solve it; hardware acceleration tweak neither. No crash logs.

Tried on the Edge and everything is fine.

Question: does the suggested "fix" on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows embraces this issue as well? If so, sorry, but might be time to change browsers. The reason I'm using Windows 10 PRO ->N<- is exactly not to have to remove Windows Media Player and related "bloat" from my system. This isn't one of those crybaby threats I hate to read: it's a necessity.

I must ask: why on Edge, on the same machine, the same problem doesn't exist as in Firefox.

Suggestion for mentioned article: might be helpful point users (also) to the right place of The Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 10, on https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231

Thanks

I have had a primary/master password set in Firefox for years. It only prompted me to enter it once per session. Since version 90, it now pops up at least once a day at random times to ask for the password again. This has happened on 3 different devices where Firefox is installed.

How can I stop it doing that or at least extend the time to a week? I know there are hidden config options for these, but they look to be on the default values, so have never changed.

I updated FF to version 90.0.2, & it now keeps asking me for my primary password. I've tried resetting it, & rebooting Windows 10 Pro X64, but nothing seems to help. I don't actually have to do anything, except hit Cancel, but it bothers me that FF is glitchy.

No software additions, system is stable, running Sophos anti-virus

Any ideas? Thanks!

I have Firefox on a couple of (Windows 10) PCs. This problem is happening on one of them. It has two profiles (users), and it's happening on both.

If I open Firefox, and then trying going to google.co.uk, or do any google related search, almost everytime there is an obvious 30-40s delay. Indeed, during this time I can even open up other web sites (immediate), and trying google.co.uk again, and delay continues to occur.

Opening up the Network Console in Firefox, the GET request can be seem and then like clockwork there is about a 41000ms delay until it then continues.

If I open in TroubleShoot mode, same issue.

If I open in a Private Window, the problem does NOT occur.

This problem does NOT happen on my other PCs with Firefox, or any other browser on the PC in question.

This is very frustrating :( You open firefox to do a google search and it takes tens of seconds to resolve (on the first attempt) :(

I'm using Windows Defender Firewall in Windows 10, and I have blocked all Inbound and Outbound connections, created a New Rule for Firefox (version 78.11.0_ESR), and allowed the program to access the internet from the installation path: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe". However, internet access is inaccessable? Does Firefox makes some DETOUR route without my knowelage or is it just me and my moderate IQ? All other applications have full respect to Windows Defender Firewall rules. Thank you.

Hi! I am trying to use the Multi-Account Containers add-on in conjunction with Facebook Container and Temporary Containers add-ons.

I have DuckDuckGo set as my default search engine, and Homepage and New Tabs and Windows set to Firefox Home.

Firefox Home has no domain in the address bar, which is presumably why it is always opened in a temporary container.

I am not sure I understand the best practice to use them after reading a LOT on various sites. Aside from the default containers, I have set up specific containers, depicted in the attached image, for: -Privacy Expected (Firefox, DDG, etc). -Often used and generally trusted (labelled Suppliers, Sites I like). -General sites which I expect to visit again, and I've managed cookie settings I don't want to do again each visit due to Temporary Containers add-on deleting their cookies. -Yuk Sites I expect to track me can go in a container (again, only adding to a container so I don't have to manage their cookies each visit). -worst offenders have their own containers (Google, Microsoft, etc)

Still trying to get my head around how to set permission for add-on Read Aloud to use Google Wavenet voices, and have that permission (and "I am not a robot" Captcha) seen across non-Google pages I want to be able to be read aloud (maybe have to add that 1 page for Google Wavenet voices to an exception in Temp containers or no cointainer but at the extent of my ability to make sense of all this).

First of all excuse my English because it's not perfect. The problem came with the new version 90.0.1. There are some websites I visit every day, and after installing new version of FF I noticed that the fonts used in websites are different than it was before. Some websites are breaking apart and doesn't look like they did before, and like they look in other major browsers right now.

Examples: http://www.alterego.co.rs/_knjigovodstvo/aktuelno.html https://www.arrowheadpride.com/

I went to the Settings option and saw that my FF is set to show Times New Roman 16 as default font, but if I go to Advanced I can see that the checkbox on Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above option is ON. So websites should be shown not by default font, but the font used in websites. But if I turn that option OFF, than I can see websites like it should be, like it was before new version, and like it's shown in other major browsers. But it gives me wrong look (font) with some other websites, so it's not the permanent solution. I guess it's some kind of problem with new version of FF.

Note: Same thing happend a couple of weeks or months ago with one of previous FF versions, but that was fixed just day or two later with another new version. It looks like we have simmilar problem right now.

Thanx in advance for any help, and I hope somebody will fix that soon. I am lifelong user of FF browser because it's my favourite and the best, but that kind of problem can be pretty big for someone who is very often online and who is working in developing websites sometimes.

Thanx again Dragan

I have the Simplify Page option set back up on my Print Preview screen and it appears to be working fine on the screen, but when I try to print the page it cuts a bunch off on the right and on the bottom of the page. It doesn't appear to be a marginal issue. I think it's something with the latest version 90.0.1 of Firefox that I recently downloaded.

Please don't do away with the Simplify Page option! I use it ALL THE TIME!

when embedding a bigger video in firefox i got audio bugs. It crackles like an old movie. No problems in Chrome.

The video was converted with VLC to MP4/MOV with H-264 video and MPEG audio codecs. Because of its a very high quality video, the file size and Bitrates are very high. Is it possible, that firefox has a problem with that?

I know, usually you should never offering a video with that size on a web template, but its local hosted for an kiosk-mode project.

I am sat in front of a PC for most of my day. Firefox spends most of its time minimised while I use document and video applications. On average the Primary password login box will activate over everything I am doing frequently - by frequently I mean 2-3 times an hour or more. It is annoying and nonsensical. What am I doing wrong or is this simply a flaw in firefox? In my imagination at least it makes sense for it to ask me for a password when I want to use a password restricted domain.
