Anytime Firefox opens it is asking for my Primary password. This has been happening for 2 or 3 weeks. I can enter my password or click cancel. But if I close and reopen the browser it happens again, regarless of what page I am on. (Annoying when clicking a link to read a short article) I do not have AVG or ISlet (sp?) installed. I tried that solution and it did not work.

Suggestions on how to debug, diagnose or fix appreciated.

I use a 55 inch TV as my computer monitor with Windows7 OS. All of a sudden this week the animations are on every site... Netflix just became unbearable to watch. I have already gone though the steps to turn off all animations in Firefox. I performed these steps...

'''in about:config - type : toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled - set it to : false - type : toolkit.scrollbox.smoothScroll - set it to : false'''

This did NOTHING to turn off the nauseating animations. Every time I scroll a web page I feel motion sickness. Every movie I watch now looks like garbage.

I ALSO have turned off ALL animations in Windows7... so this is really upsetting. Movies I have downloaded seem to play fine in VLC player, but if I use my browser to watch a video, it is now unbearable because of these garbage animations wreaking havoc on my screen.

So Im trying to download a 1.19GB file and get 300mb/s ethernet speed using speedtest.net/ Now normally from my experience its never taken longer that 10 sec to Download such a file. Although since today, either Firefox or my pc has decided to limit download speed to 90kb/s which means this is going to take 3h or so to download. I use Windows 10, don't have a metered plan enabled or any other wifi/ethernet speed limiting things, and no third party security software. Anyone have any ideas why this could be happening? Many thanks in advance

Firefox often times out when accessing paypal.com and other sites that use certificates from DigiCert. The same sites can be accessed reliably, from the same computer at the same time, using chromium-based browsers.

The problem goes away if I disable the check to query OCSP responder, which may indicate the cause of the problem.

Often the sites can be accessed after restarting firefox, but after a few tries the problem recurs. This is not a solution as PayPal is often accessed in the last steps of an online purchase.

I work from home and use OpenVPN for work. When I am connected (most of the day), I have noticed that I receive the "PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR" on every website I try to visit. Is using Firefox not compatible with an independent VPN? Or is there a setting of some sort that I can adjust to make it work? Thank you!

Four times now I lost all the tabs I had been saving in Firefox. No explanation, and no apparent way to recover them. Why does this happen? Is there a way to recover them? I don't have this problem with other browsers. Very frustrating, because some are regularly used references. Some are hard to recall from scratch once they are suddenly gone.

How can I get a Theme or Create my Theme in Menu - Extras? It is difficult to move on with this.

I wish a Theme with the Text in the URL addresses with yellow colour and a dark colour background on the Top where I write the URL addresses.

Something is wrong when I try to follow these steps: > You can activate one of these built-in themes by following these steps:

   Click the menu button, click Addons-icon Extras and select Themes.
   Click Activate next to the desired theme.

It's being difficult to activate the theme I choose.

Firefox makes system volume reduce to 50% when Tidal is playing music on Windows 10. I can see this happening through the system mixer, activated via the icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen.

I am using a Steinberg UR22 mkII USB interface, but the behavior happens across all sound outputs.

Going into the properties of the USB device have proved unsuccessful.

Firefox does not trigger this behavior with other applications playing through the USB device. I'm wondering if there is some sort of setting left over from when I had Firefox Voice enabled?

A fresh install of Firefox did not do the trick. This happens with all sound outputs on Windows 10, not just through the USB device.

Does anyone have any ideas/solutions?

I am running Firefox 83.0 under Windows 7 Ultimate: I am a voracious reader of amateur writing and have accounts on several websites. I use Reader View in Firefox due to my less than optimal eye sight. It works perfectly on Literotica.com and Inkitt.com, but on Wattpad .com, Reader View has a difficult time capturing the full text of a page. It will usually capture only blocks of the text and it is extremely difficult to make it capture a desired block of text. Why is this and can I do anything about it? PerryNormal perrynormal@att.net

(Crazy how I had to Google "How to post on Firefox forum" to post this. Anyway.)

My Top sites are not showing icons in some random cases (screenshot 1), and I can't understand what cases.

By default, the icons will show the first letter of the website name, i.e. "G" for Google Sheets, Google Forums, Google Drive etc. This is nearly useless, so I'm trying to add icons by linking the tiles to image files online (screenshot 2 shows WIX). However, some of them will show, some others won't.

I assume it has to do with the source of the image, whether it's official or not, but this still makes little sense. And if I add the website URL there instead of an image, it'll show me the full page in the icon, which wouldn't make sense to me.

How could I solve this?

Thank you

In the last couple of weeks, when I start a game (RoyalGames.com) that uses adobe flash, Firefox goes haywire and starts breaking into pieces (the whole browser). Usually I can shut it down but tonight it crashed my whole system, my monitor went black, but the sound was still working. I had to manually shut down. I was able to get a screen shot of it before it completely crashed. See pic. The image should be an orange box with a black border but it's all broken into pieces. The games work fine on Chrome and Internet Explorer. A couple days ago I did a Windows refresh and just installed Firefox fresh but it still happens. Anyone have any ideas what would cause this? Thank you.
