So, I think this may be a Windows thing because it happens in Chrome too. Every few months I like to export my passwords and bookmarks to a portable SSD just to have backed up. Now, when I go to export my passwords into an Excel file, it asks for my Windows login credentials. I 100% know my Windows credentials and can log into microsoft.com or any microsoft website fine. When I type them into Firefox, it says incorrect.

I even went to CMD and typed whoami and used that since that's my "Windows name" instead of my username or email address associated with Windows, and used my windows password and IT STILL said incorrect.

Please, how do I temporarily disable this feature or change it from needing my Windows password to my code to actually let me into Windows once my PC boots at the default image (Yes, I tried the code with all usernames too, no luck).

Thanks for any help.

Hey guys.

My question is very simple: how can I hide the Firefox 94 address bar on any screen size, including full screen?

I have been searching the internet for an answer, even in previous versions, the answers and suggestions were never clear. Including nonsense add-ons.

Is there any placement of moz://a? Does anyone have a tip that might actually work?

Thank you very much.

These have all been deleted and i will need to spend hours to go and look them all up again . are these saved in any config files that i can re-add them ? Why are these being deleted and if this is not going to be saved going forward why do you still make this functionality available ? second, larger screenshot.

Hi All, I am using firefox on my work laptop and it was working fine, until today that it was updated to the new version: 94.0.2 (64-bit)

I noticed that the new version was very fast, so I decided to switch from Chrome to Firefox. I imported all my logins and bookmarks, but when I go to a website, in the part where I should enter my login information, the drop-down menu does not show up, even though I have several saves usernames and passwords! I tried entering my logins manually into the password manager, but they still do not show up. The previous saved logins show up and work fine. But the new ones don't. Can you help me solve this issue? the image shows what I mean. The older login that was saved before the new update shows, but none of the other 4 logins that I imported or manually entered into the password manager show up.

I was recently watching a Twitch livestream when I stepped away from my PC for a moment and upon returning found it sitting at the login screen. Checking eventvwr it showed a BSOD event had occurred. The only thing actively running on my PC was FireFox with a single tab for Twitch.

Level: Critical Source: Kernal-Power Event ID: 41 BugCheckCode: 307 decimal, 0x133 hex

Windows documentation lists hex 0x133 as a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION error, and since Parameter 1 was a '0', it states, "A single DPC or ISR exceeded its time allotment. The offending component can usually be identified with a stack trace." https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/debugger/bug-check-0x133-dpc-watchdog-violation

From Windows Debugging Tools I loaded up the DMP file and ran !analyze to see the process name listed as FF (there's more information listed, just not sure it's really useful).

I checked FF `about:crashes` and it doesn't show any crash report there (presumably because the system BSOD and it did not have a chance to do anything).

Just wondering if anyone else has seen this issue and how/if they resolved it. In searching around it seemed like some folks suggested disabling hardware acceleration as there may be incompatibility issues with FF and GPU drivers. I checked under FF settings and it has "Use recommended performance settings" enabled, but there are no sub-options specific for hardware acceleration.

Some basic system specs: MoBo: Gigabyte B550 Vision D-P (BIOS F13e, latest available) CPU: AMX Ryzen 7 5800X GPU: Gigabyte GeForce 3060Ti (driver 30.0.14.7141, latest one available)

Running on FF 94.0.2 (64-bit), the latest update.

I installed firefox on my new Windows 10 laptop and found that there is a persistent white bar at the top of my screen for some reason.
