On: HP OMEN Laptop Processor 12th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-12500H 2.50 GHz Installed RAM 16.0 GB (15.7 GB usable) System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor Edition Windows 11 Home Version 23H2 OS build 22631.3447 124.0.2 Firefox Release, April 2, 2024

Since the 2 APR 2024 FF update, Washington Post articles are not displaying fully. When opened, the article flashes the full version, then only displays the top photo and the first two paragraphs. When opened in EDGE, all articles open fully as expected. This issue is only occurring in FF.

Actions taken: Cleared cache, same result.

Please advise.

Hi all, For the last few months I've had a persistent issue with my Firefox browser on Windows where I have to continually toggle the 'Ask to save passwords' option so that Firefox fills my username and passwords automatically, gives me the option to save them automatically and so on.

Everytime I click the option on, it works for maybe a few days before I have to yet again toggle it on even though I haven't done anything like close my Firefox window, restart my computer or any similar thing. My Firefox and laptop are also on their latest updates and regardless this issue has continued through multiple update cycles.

It is very frustrating as I'm applying for jobs regularly so manually having to use alternate ways to autofill my details is annoying - I know a password manager is probably the best solution but regardless this is still a very annoying issue.

The email associated with my account was hacked and I am seeing suspicious activity around it still. So I am changing the email or deleting accounts I am no longer using. However, firefox wants to send a confirmation email to the one that no longer exists for me to change the email on the account. How do I proceed?

I had to swap out my hard drive the other day without being able to save any data from Firefox. When the new disk was reloaded from the old one the user names were not made the same as with the old disk. When i use Firefox and save a password it says it has been saved but when I use the same site again the passwords don't fill in. When I look at the passwords via the passwords settings there is nothing there. Can you tell me how to get passwords to work please? Thanks John

I have two questions:

1. Will WASM and JIT be turned on or not affect the operation of RLBox?

I currently have the following about:config settings set to false, I'm wondering if this will cause the RLBox to not function?

javascript.options.ion javascript.options.baselinejit javascript.options.native_regexp javascript.options.asmjs javascript.options.wasm

I hope Mozilla staff will consider listing the operating status of RLBox in about:support, so that it will be clear at a glance.

2. Enabling "security.sandbox.content.shadow-stack.enabled" will cause add-ons to not function properly.

This setting seems to have been around for a long time. Is there any progress on this? Chrome has supported this feature for quite some time.

I would be grateful if you could help clarify this and inform me of the answer.

This has been bugging me for ages. Happened on Windows 10 and now on Windows 11.

I start watching some video on YouTube or whatever, decide it's not useful/what I want, stop playing it, close the tab or navigate away, but if my device locks, the controls for this old, discarded video, that I didn't want to watch, are on the lock screen.

I wouldn't mind if it was a video I was currently watching but it's somehow remembering the last thing I started to watch. I can see no hint anywhere else that it's still active in any way at all.

The only way to get rid seems to be to close Firfox.

This is very annoying because it seems you can't watch anything without Firefox remembering it and putting on the lock screen until the end of the session, so it could be cluttering things up all day unless I close everything and (in my case, because of prvicy settings) delete cookies and log myself out of most sites.

I've tried multiple searches but all I've found here is a post about turning off media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled but I don't actually want to do that, I just want Firefox to forget videos when I've closed the tab or navigated away from them.

Elsewhere I found a suggestion to disable dom.media.mediasession.enabled but that setting isn't found.

Any help much appreciated.

Picture-in-picture since recent YouTube update keeps closing. Is there way i could configure in about:config to never close and always stay open even if page refreshes and have it move the video play back always to the Picture-in-picture window ? If not could this be made a feature in a future update ?

YouTube especially been annoying to Firefox users, cos it keeps refreshing the whole page breaking stuff every time it plays the video, as well have issues with looping videos even tho they are already fully buffered, making entire YouTube experience as frustrating as possible as encouragement to switch to chrome, which i refuse for obvious reasons.

Anything i can do on my end ? If tested if this happens in incognito mode as well with all extensions disabled in private windows, no change of behavior.

Btw this happens on the new YouTube interface with no way to get back to the old interface, cos it keeps the annoying features of the old interface even if you try to re position stuff using hacky ways like extensions that do so, which of course break stuff even further. I just want Picture-in-picture to remain open, and to play current video in picture-in-picture that is playing automatically.

Btw the Picture-in-picture experience with chrome or chrome based browsers is absolutely horrible, giving me even more reasons to stay on Firefox besides privacy related issues and other issues.

When I have the Firefox browser open, every time I click away from it to another open window I get this stupid graphic that pops up near the bottom right corner of my screen that says "Intelligent Work" and rotates through three different images. It is really irritating and I can't figure out how to make it go away. This is a new computer and I only installed the Firefox browser this week. It only happens when I click off of the browser to any other window.

I've had this issue ever since switching to a new laptop. This issue is specifically within Firefox (I have tested this in other browsers and programs, and the issue isn't there. Everything else works perfectly fine!)

Essentially, whenever Firefox plays multiple sounds at the same time (for example, I use both youtube and discord in-browser) the second sound will briefly mute the other sound. (Going back to the discord-youtube example, if I am watching a youtube video and recieve a discord notification, the youtube video will pause for about half a second.) Or if a site has background audio but also plays a short audio clip when certain elements are clicked, for example, it will cause this "overlapping" issue. Again, this issue is only within Firefox.

I am using Windows 11 if that helps. I've already tried using a Firefox Refresh and peeking in about:config but I'm totally lost as to what I can try next, since I can't find any other examples of people with this issue online. Sometimes the issue briefly fixes itself but then reappears.
