When being prompt for the primary password, I noticed that I can rapidly and endlessly type random combinations and press enter. There seems to never be any delay between wrong entering of passwords. So it seems that even the most primitive application that would try all possible combinations rapidly, will break the password in few hours for the most. This does not even require any knowledge in hacking. Is this correct or am I missing something? If that is the case, then primary password is only worth when keeping the computer unattended for no more than few minutes.

This is the error message that has suddenly started appearing today whenever I attempt to open a site (Google, my email, etc):

"Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection."

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. But the same problem remains. I have also run a Kaspersky complete analysis, but it shows that everything is OK - even though it most certainly is not OK. It is as if Microsoft is forcing me to use Microsoft Edge, a browser I don't like. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would really like to get Firefox back safe and unharmed.

Thanks, Julie

On Firefox, I am getting this yellow bar stating, "A web page is slowing down your browser." I am getting this frequently everyday. After I click on "Stop it", it disappears, but Firefox remains frozen and I have to close it, most of the time through the task manager. I have refreshed Firefox, but the message still keeps on appearing, most of the time when I am on AOL. This problem is making Firefox useless for me. I have also read similar experiences from many other Firefox users. Why can Firefox not fix it? It is not even listed in the Firefox problems and solutions.

Hi, I've been trying to get Widevine to install on Firefox for a few weeks (,month+ maybe?) but after all this time I'm left with the message Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly. I've already tried reinstalling stuff, safe mode, enabling and disabling DRM and all the other stuff to help so at this point I'd just want to do it myself. Can't find any Widevine download or really any way on how to install it manually though, which is where I need assistance on, again I've already resigned to the fact that Widevine autoinstalling through firefox is broken and I'd rather try and do it myself manually. Thank you.

The symptom is it will play the video then the screen goes blank after about 1 hour and there is a cursor moving from left to right continuously at the top. I have cleared cookies through preferences and through web developer with no effect. I believe the cookies remain in effect because only when I close the FF browser and reopen does it recover. I have "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"

When I use another browser there is no problems. Is this a cookie problem why does play back recover when FF is closed and reopened?

System Information

  • Firefox: version 86.0
  • Hardware: Dell XPS 13 9370
  • OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64
  • DE: XFCE
  • CPU: Intel i7-8550U (8) @ 4.000GHz
  • GPU: Intel UHD Graphics 620
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Multi-account containers: 7.3.0
  • I use Pihole hosted on an RPi.

Problem

For the last few versions, opening Firefox would result in no pages loading. The tabs would keep spinning with no result.

I've disabled plugins to find the cause, and have found that I can't reproduce this issue with no plugins enabled, but can reproduce this issue with only the Firefox Multi-account containers plugin enabled.

This problem also doesn't happen if I delete rm -rf ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/*.default-release before starting Firefox, even with the plugin enabled.

When I have this problem, I can disable the Firefox Multi-account containers plugin to get the tabs to load, and then re-enable it. This implies the plugin is somehow blocking the tabs from loading.

Thank you for taking the time to read this question. Let me know if you would like any more information.

Hello, I have wanted to move from Chrome to Firefox for some time and I finally got to try it out today. Something that has bothered me since the beginning is that right clicking when the cursor hovers over text behaves differently than I'm used to.

This is the behavior I want:

  1. User action: With the cursor over text.
  2. User action: Right click / double click if in Mac
  3. Browser action: The word that the cursor is hovering should be automatically selected and the appropriate actions (copy, select all, search…, etc.) should appear in the contextual menu.

Instead of those options in the contextual menu, the normal page options are appearing (Save Page As, View Page Source…).

Where do I change this behaviour?

Additionally, how can I make the contextual menu include the «Look Up "foo"» option as it does in Chrome (Mac)?

PS: check the names of the images; basically: Chrome; Firefox-what-I-get; Firefox-what-I-want
