Hi. I am asking for help: how to protect with a password (preferably master) any access to the browser (and not only to logins), where there is simultaneous synchronization between several devices. Currently it works like this: I run FF, a popup appears for entering the password. I do not enter the password, I close the popup with "x". And thus I have access to everything that was previously open in the browser (in the previous session). If the user was logged in, I also have access to it. And I would like the use of "x", failure to enter a password, or entering an incorrect one to result in, for example, closing FF. So that there is no access to FF content

Thank you in advance for your help

Scrolling lags when primary display is disabled (windows 11)

Setup: Laptop with integrated Intel UHD 630, dedicated Nvidia RTX 2060 External Monitor connected via USB-C -> rendered through Nvidia card

Issue: Yesterday i disabled my laptop display in the windows settings as i only need my monitor. This resulted in laggish scrolling behaviour in Firefox. Not always but mostly a delay of ~100-300ms. Scrolling up/down fast doesn't really scroll, it just jumps with said delay. It happens on touchpad or mouse (mx master s3). If i enable the main display (extended) everything is fine.

Checked so far:

  • All input-related add-ons, apps (Logi Options+, xmouse button control, ...) are disabled or off
  • A reset or reinstall of Firefox doesn't help
  • Drivers are up to date
  • Changing the graphics performance preference (accelerated, energy saving) in the windows settings doesn't effect the behaviour
  • Smooth Scrolling is off

Any idea what's the matter?

Hello there.

After updating, Firefox, once more, lost all my open tabs and history. Extension icons have become invisible on the toolbar even if i unpin and pin them again. Thanks to the extension "Tab Session Manager", I was able to retrieve the json file of my last session but the crazy part is that pages are not loading anymore! Even if I type google.com in the address bar, it just seems to load forever and nothing happens. I have been using Firefox as my main browser for years but this is the second time it happens in about 1 month and I am about to ditch Firefox for good if I can't fix this. Can't afford to lose data like that... Last time it took me a hell of a long time to fix it. This time, pages aren't even loading, except it seems, for the support pages...

Installed extensions: Tab Session Manager, UBlock Origin, Privacy badger, Phantom, Metamask (lost all the wallets data and setup), NordVPN, other crypto wallets...

As the title states, I have been testing out web push with a project I have in mind and am running into the issue that on firefox after making a request to send a web push, it takes a few minutes before firefox acknowledges that it got it and shows it. Afterwards, web pushes are shown instantly until again after being inactive for some time (not really know to me) it is delayed again in receiving web pushes. On chrome, they are received instantly every time. I am also setting the priority to the highest when making the push request.

Please reply with a step by step solution. I've tried changing some of the Firefox settings. I just tried unchecking the "Bookmarks" box and Settings box in the Sync Setting, clicked Save (left disconnect alone), left the other choices checked, and am waiting to see if this worked. Firefox is set as my default browser in all the places I know. Thank you very much!!

Hello,

Working with a coworker to try and fix an error: Something went wrong We couldnt sign you in. Please try again. Issue type: Unknown Issue.

I already checked firefox updates, cleared startup cache, tried in troubleshoot mode, disabled addons, tried a different windows account, tried in a private window other Microsoft apps work just not Sharepoint it gets stuck in some kind of sign in loop. The credentials work fine on my computer. Would Firefox not work like that if the computer time was off? Only thing I can think of.
