This has happened several times over the last few weeks. I'll be using Firefox with 8-12 tabs open, or even far less, and then suddenly I cannot select any of the tabs. I click on them, and nothing happens. Video and audio will keep playing, but I cannot select anything.

So at this point I quit it, it closes fine, and when I launch it again it prompts me to either start in safe mode or to refresh. I have to restart the PC to get it to launch Firefox normally again.

The only extension I use is uBlock origin.

Multi-Account Containers pegging CPU

I noticed that recently, several of my machines (all logged into the same FF account) are experiencing pretty extreme performance penalties, and when on battery, the battery drains very quickly. Within the Windows Task Manager, I see that FF is often taking up 50%+ CPU even though I'm using fewer tabs than usual. Within `about:performance`, I see that Multi-Account Containers is the resource hog.

On another machine where I am not logged in, FF performance is pretty good. On the affected machines, Edge runs very fast with low CPU/memory use, so there's definitely an issue with FF on these machines.

About:config shows that extensions.experiments.enabled=false, and the Containers plugin hasn't been updated in 2.5 months.

I would prefer to not uninstall containers since they're so useful. I could clobber and reinstall them for testing, but is there a known issue or a quick fix for this?

My financial firm rep said they use Glance Technologies (aka Perk Labs) for screen sharing with their client devices. However, the screen sharing could not be made to work today with the rep on the phone, even though I unchecked the button in my Firefox Privacy settings for blocking popups. I am now wondering if some other Privacy settings in Firefox are known to create issues with Glance Technologies screen sharing. It would also be interesting to find out more generally about Firefox settings and screen sharing using other screen sharing technology firms.

Even though I say "never save" for logging in to a website, when I login the next time, it asks me again "if I want to save password". I have also gone to the exception list and manually entered the websites, and even though I block and save that website, the websites disappear from the exception list and I am again asked if I want to save password.

I have a website on my server that responds to port 8585. When I visit http://myfakeurl.com:8585 in chrome the website loads fine.

When I visit the url in firefox on my phone the website loads fine.

when I visit the url from firefox in windows I get the error below

    Secure Connection Failed
    An error occurred during a connection to myfakeurl.com:8585. SSL received a record that                                 exceeded the maximum permissible length.
     Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG

Looking at the incoming request on the server you can see that they filled with special character aand they are indeed very long.....

Before i confirmed that the requests were in fact too long I had tried downgrading to tls 1.2 in about:config

hi,

just opened a firefox account in order to have passwords recorded. I noticed after signing out, the passwords and lgins stay on the browser and actually all visible at a click.

odd thing for a security measure in 2020 for the most hyped browser out there...

Is this a new woke thing ... ah ah ah

I've run into a strange issue lately - certain sites are left unable to sign in. I've tried disabling add-ons, clearing cache, cookies, history, lowering my security settings, adding site exclusions, disabling VPN, refreshing firefox, uninstall/reinstall, uninstall/clear data/reinstall/refresh firefox, everything. Still, nothing.

One site in particular is Dropbox. I enter my creds, it asks for my authenticator, error. So I tried in another browser and it works fine. So it's definitely a firefox issue.

I did disable my authenticator temporarily, and was able to sign in on Firefox. However the moment I re-enabled it, I'm no longer able to sign in again.

I have a few other sites that won't sign in either. Some give errors, some accept my password then refresh to the non-signed in page.

I'm at a loss. I've tried everything I can think of. And confirmed all sites work in other browsers.

Hi! I recently found that in new versions of Firefox (from 77.0) display profile support doesn't work for calibrated displays even if it is enabled in Firefox options. The last version that supports it, and thus showing correct image colors on calibrated displays, is 76.0.1. How can I enable it in new version? I usually set up it this way, and it worked before: - go to about:config - set "gfx.color_management.enablev4" parameter to "true" - set "gfx.color_management.mode" to "1"

Thank you.

JavaScript file uses command ```console.log()``` for showing values and outputs they into console. Next to the displayed result, there is a link to the place where the function was called (the source). I need to copy the displayed result, but when I select text in the console, these links get there.

How do I disable these links so that they are not displayed when data is output?
