In as I am lacking technological experience to properly address the problem of, "the significance of pins tacked onto shortcut icons on Firefox opening page"; I will confront the situation with a simple picture. ⇘ I suppose I will never know: Two days ago this inquiry was attempted. However all was curtailed upon the realization several minutes passed during the process of uploading the image. Be it known, today, twenty minutes have passed in attempt to upload 238KB png file. Apparently security is prohibiting this. In any event, perchance some of this does get through... HELP

I updated to the latest version yesterday and now my Bookmarks ,History and a few other things have gone into Dark Mode. I really don't care for it and have tried looking into my settings but I see nothing that I can do to go back to the normal white. I am using Windows 11 on an HP All In One Desktop computer. Is there anything I can do to revert back to the way it was? Thanks for any reply.

Just to advise after the recent update to Mozilla Firefox v96.0.1 there was a problem with Internet connection not then being available from Firefox.

For extra privacy I have Win 10x64 Pro set to the free Cloudflare free use DNS settings of 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 and this has worked just fine for several months now.

However, since the update as above, Firefox could no longer connect to the Internet.

However, my other Browsers: SeaMonkey and Tor worked just fine.

For security reasons, I never use Chrome, Edge or Safario, as they are basically insecure.

Thinking there was a router problem, I reset that with the pin through the reset hole at the rear, and rebooted the PC.

No further ahead, and I knew it was not a Malware problem either, as I use very good AntiMalware Software.

I switched off the fiber box for 10 minutes, restarted it, no change, Firefox still could not connect.

Aha, a look through the Firefox Settings > Network and checked the DNS setting, which had been default set by Firefox to "CIRA Canadian Shield (By Default)" - That was NOT the setting I had placed into the Win10 Operating System.

Cloudflare was the second option there, so I selected that.

I didn't try the third option of "Next DNS".

Saved the setting (Option 2 Cloudflare)

Rebooted the PC, and no further troubles.

That CIRA Canadian Shield (Default) by Firefox was a trap I hadn't run into.

Just thought you may wish to put this in an appropriate place, as a warning to others.

Experienced with all Windows O/S since 1993, every style of O/S Microsoft has had available, plus much other Software.

This is the first unexpected problem ever I've had with Mozilla Firefox.

I run this PC 24/7, never turned off except for a reboot.

I can run some Firefox 25+ Windows and a total of over 150 Tabs, Run SeaMonkey and Tor with over 100 Tabs between them, and can still do other work.

Pleaty of RAM and SSD's for Operating Systems, backup to HDD's for longevity.

Still using 20+ year old HDD's still good, but they don't thermally cycle (Always on except for reboots), and I am interested to see how long before a failure of one of them =- I just stor DATA on these old HDD's (Copy from elsewhere, so it doesn't matter if I have a failure of an old HDD.

When I'm using the Firefox browser a small pop-up box often appears saying "Must provide password." If I type in my actual password and hit Enter, the box just pops up again. If I hit the Cancel button it goes away and doesn't seem to affect my use of the browser. Is there a way to get it to stop popping up?

Hi, I know this already Faqs about this problems: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can But the things is, it's not works at all. Even it could, it only for few minutes and the problems keeps appears. And oddly, If you ignore it for several minutes or an hour, Firefox suddenly can open websites again. This problems keep appears in my 2 laptop. I already try anything including reinstall firefox, and it's just temporal solutions. Can you check what actually happened? Cause this problems not only me but also the other users. I already ask my colleague and my friend, they have same problems, and the solution you give isn't working at all. Thank you.
