Hi, As it is, Firefox remember the primary password as long as the software is open and the computer not shut down. This is a very serious security risk! Firefox should forget the primary password after a certain period of time, even when running continuously. At least Firefox should forget the password after the session is suspended or locked. Could you please add this feature in your next release. Sincerely, -- Pierre

- You updated and took my bookmarks away (something I needed and used all the time. How can you do that? Really? - also every time I go on line I get another stupid sign at the top right telling me to update again. I'm being pestered to do something that screwed me over. - I’ve tried the (old firefox date folder, thing) and it didn’t work. (so please don't suggest that) - I have to go looking for what bookmarks I have left (no more drop-down menu with all of them right there where over the years I've organized them)

I used to like this program, a lot. If I can’t get my Book marks back I’m done with FireFox. What the hell were you thinking?

    1. Problem

Firefox keeps on randomly not loading web pages. Upon restarting the browser I am prompted to either [Exit] or [Create new profile]

This has only started happing in the last 2 weeks or so.

It is VERY annoying that I have to keep setting up Firefox EVERY time which involves:

  • Logging in with Firefox Sync
  • Reauthenticating with ALL the websites / apps I use in Firefox

This is a bad user experience

I have tried the following.

  • Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox (by scoop)
  • Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox (by the Firefox downloader)
  • Resetting local history / data / cache
  • Disabling IPV6 setting
  • Disabling Prefetch
  • Troubleshoot mode -> Reset data & Refresh Firefox

None of these have resolved the issue and the unresponsive sites and Profile reset requirement keep on randomly occurring

Hello. I was wondering to ask is there any APIs that I can use to get the valid versions of the Firefox browser with some basic information. Like the one, we have on the Wikipedia website, except I want to get the information from API instead of the websites.
